Saturn 5 Records announces the release of Nashville-based Americana Artist Kristen Englenz’s new single “Shelf Life”. The single drops June 19, 2020. The song was recorded in Nashville by three-time Grammy nominee and producer Ken Coomer, former drummer for Wilco during the studio sessions for Englenz highly regarded debut full length album, ingénue.

“Shelf Life” features Englenz performing vocals and acoustic guitar, Coomer on drums and Nashville session musicians Ted Pecchio on electric bass and Joe Garcia on electric guitar. It’s meditative tone underscores the lyrical imagery of being frozen in place after a “break up”. It seems to have even more impact as the recent pandemic has left the world feeling immovable and disconnected. 

The East Nashvillian called Englenz’s debut album “a sonic wonderland” and Creative Loafing says, “Kristen Englenz shines…with a strong opening salvo.” Stomp and Stammer comments that “ingénue features strong lyrics delivered by an emotive storyteller…a talent with the drive to work as an equal with roots music legends.
