“It’s an accidental love child,” says Nashville-based singer-songwriter Kate Tucker of Little Reader, her new and unexpected pop music collaboration with Los Angeles-based songwriter and guitarist, Ross Flournoy, late of Merge Records bands The Broken West and Apex Manor. The duo’s debut album The Big Score (out May 19th) was produced by Mark Watrous of The Shins.

The music video for the first Little Reader single “Speed of Light,” featuring the life-affirming dance moves of visual artist Shan Turner-Carroll, is streaming now via Team Coco or YouTube now. The song is also available today via the usual streaming providers.

In addition to working on their own projects, Tucker and Flournoy have both found success writing for others in recent years. If you’ve watched Jake Tapper’s CNN show, then you’ve heard Flournoy’s theme music, and Tucker has found herself on stage at the Sundance Film Festival for her work in film scoring and soundtracks. Between the two of them, dozens of television shows have used Tucker and Flournoy’s songs.

So, when these two met for the first time, in the hills over Los Angeles, it was merely to try writing together at the request of their publisher Rough Trade, or as Tucker jokes, “It was basically as blind a date as a co-write can be.” But, as we now know, the pair ultimately decided to take it all the way, and soon, Flournoy was in Nashville recording with Kate and her mates.

From The Big Score’s opener and first single “Speed of Light,” listeners will feel like they are taken into a John Hughes film, namely “Pretty In Pink,” specifically right into Trax, the record store where Molly Ringwald’s “Andie” worked, and where Annie Potts asked for “applause, applause, applause!”

It’s lighthearted fun for those who have fought-for perspective on what’s lighthearted and/or fun. Namely, it can take some heartbreak – a “heavy heart” – to know what feeling lighthearted even is.

The Big Score by Little Reader arrives May 19th, preceded by the single and music video “Speed of Light.” Little Reader is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
