Led by a modern-day Linda Ronstadt, Granville Automatic writes songs the Associated Press calls “haunting tales of sorrow and perseverance.” With influences as diverse as Emmylou Harris and Dawes, Granville Automatic has created a quiet and lyrical sound that revolves around their passion for storytelling.
The duo, comprised of Vanessa Olivarez and Elizabeth Elkins, is named after a 19th-century typewriter. The girls’ devotion to the project has proved a chaotic road of back-breaking touring, interpersonal tension, former-day-job balancing, other-band leaving, and a love-hate dynamic that brought them from Atlanta to Nashville. Theirs is a creative partnership reminiscent of Lennon-McCartney, a dreamer-doer, accessible-obtuse, country-rock collision of two polar opposites. What the two share, however, is a love for nostalgia: old records and antiques, tarot cards and dusty books, ghosts on battlefields and lost stories from the past. That common ground has produced three albums widely praised from The New York Times to an Editor’s Pick in No Depression.
Olivarez and Elkins have written songs recorded by country stars Billy Currington (the single “Drinkin’ Town With A Football Problem”), Sugarland, Wanda Jackson, Angaleena Presley, David Fanning and numerous others. They were also founding members of Farewell Angelina, co-writing much of the band's first album. You've heard their songs on ABC’s American Crime and The Lying Game, as well as Netflix’s The Ranch.
