Produced by Segarra and engineered by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes), Small Town Heroes features twelve new, original songs all written or co-written by Segarra, with support from a vivid cast of Crescent City musicians including her longtime right-hand-man on fiddle, Yosi Perlstein, keyboard player Casey McAllister, and two members of the Deslondes: Sam Doores on guitar and Dan Cutler on bass.



NPR has said that Hurray for the Riff Raff sweeps across eras and genres with grace and grit, never more so than on Small Town Heroes. On the hedonist country lament I Know Its Wrong (But Thats Alright) Segarra sings to a forbidden love Ill feed you watermelon off the vine, while on The Body Electric she exposes the misogyny of the traditional murder ballad, and warns Delias gone, but Im settling the score.

Ultimately though, many of the songs embody that most magical and fated of American cities, New Orleans. Segarra bears witness to a wave of violence that struck the St. Roch neighborhood in St. Roch Blues; yearns for a night at BJs Bar in the Bywater in Crash on the Highway; and sings of her own Lower Ninth Ward home in End of the Line.

Small Town Heroes follows Hurray for the Riff Raffs self-released 2012 album Look Out Mama, which led to a performance at the Newport Folk Festival, and praise from Mojo, which compared Segarra to a soulful, young Loretta Lynn, and The New York Times which hailed the group as part of the loosely cohered movement of younger musicians embracing and reframing American roots music, giving it a polish of currency but otherwise leaving its bones intact.

Following two recent sold-out NYC shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg and Mercury Lounge, Hurray for the Riff Raff plays dates with Amos Lee this month, including two nights at Nashvilles Ryman Auditorium, and Shovels & Rope next year. On Valentines Day they will headline a special hometown album release show at One Eyed Jacks. On April 3, Hurray for the Riff Raff plays Lincoln Centers American Songbook series.
