        Slightly Stoopid

        Illustrating the perfect underground success story, Slightly Stoopid's dual front-men Miles Doughty (Guitar, Bass, Vocals) and Kyle McDonald (Guitar, Bass, Vocals), created their own label, Stoopid Records, in the early 2000's to avoid signing a record deal and keep their DIY work ethic and freedom. West coast DUB/Rock pioneers later added musicians Ryan 'RyMo' Moran (Drums) and Oguer 'OG' Ocon (Congas, Percussion, Harp, Vocals) from the B Side Players, as well as C-Money (Trumpet, Keyboard) and Dela (Saxophone) from John Browns Body; solidifying their on stage line up. Slightly Stoopid has built a large n' loyal fan base, and has soared to one of the most successful independent artists of this decade. The buzz surrounding the group continues to increase with each successive release; their album catalog sales have topped the 700,000 mark and the group continues to fill the most prestigious concert venues around the world.

        The Slightly Stoopid story can be traced to Ocean Beach, California, when childhood chums Miles and Kyle formed the group in 1995, mixing reggae and punk sounds into one smooth stylistic cocktail. Soon after, late/great Sublime frontman Brad Nowell caught wind of the group, and signed them to his Skunk Records label – while the band members were still in high school. A pair of releases soon followed for Skunk - 1996's punk-tinged SLIGHTLY STOOPID (featuring a guest appearance by Nowell on the song "Prophet" – later covered by Sublime and released on their box set, EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN) and 1998's surf-inspired cult classic THE LONGEST BARREL RIDE.

        The group self-released 2001's ACOUSTIC ROOTS: LIVE AND DIRECT (a 40-minute acoustic set, captured live at San Diego 's Rock 105.3 radio station) – the first for their own label, Stoopid Records, before issuing 2003's EVERYTHING YOU NEED on Surfdog (a musical departure for the band, that sold more than 130,000 copies). The band's talent for mixing styles was never more apparent than on 2005's CLOSER TO THE SUN (on Stoopid Records / Caliplates / Reincarnate), which featured collaborations with such renowned reggae names as Barrington Levy and Scientist. A year later, Slightly Stoopid issued their first-ever electric live album, WINTER TOUR '05-'06, as well as their first-ever DVD, 'Live in San Diego,' while 2007 saw the release of the group's fifth studio effort, CHRONCHITIS, which debuted at #55 on the Billboard 200, and #2 on the indie charts.

        And through it all, Slightly Stoopid has logged some serious road miles – in addition to their incessant criss-crossing of the U.S., which includes appearances at prestigious festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and New Orleans Jazz Fest, among others, the group has played sold-out shows in Australia, Japan, Guam, Amsterdam, Portugal and Denmark, the U.K., Germany, Holland, and the Dominican Republic. "Without [the fans], we'd just be playing at the bar," admits Kyle. "They make it worth our while – when we go out and people are having that good of a time, the energy goes back and forth. Just a good time – we rely on each other's energy." And all you have to do is look at the list of artists that Slightly Stoopid has played with, to get a feel for how much of a large and diverse audience they appeal to - the Dave Matthews Band, Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley and the Marley Brothers, Sublime, the Roots, G. Love & Special Sauce, Ozomatli, Toots and the Maytals, and Pennywise, among others, as well as their first-ever sole headlining tour of amphitheatres in 2008, joined by their friends Pepper and Sly & Robbie.

        "I think consistently touring is important," explains Miles. "Most people take the route of trying to be successful without even getting out there for people to hear what your band is about. The most important thing is you can be playing in front of zero people or 20,000 people, and you've still got to rock the show. When we were first starting out, literally, we played in front of nobody. We'd show up at the club, and it would be bartenders and security guards, and 'Yo, play your hour set – here you go!' But after you play that show, they tell some of their friends and their friends tell some friends. I think the Internet has helped us a lot too, because people were able to spread the word about the music easier. The most important part is being out there 200 days a year. You're going back to towns twice a year, so people get to come out, and that gave us a real loyal following. Wherever we go, you have these Stoopidheads going crazy. For us, it's pretty much the greatest job in the world."

        2008 saw the band issuing their first-ever 'odds and ends' collection, SLIGHTLY NOT STONED ENOUGH TO EAT BREAKFAST YET STOOPID – the group's newest release for their growing label, Stoopid Records (which will also feature releases by other groups, including the label's first signees, Santa Cruz's The Expendables). Included on SLIGHTLY NOT STONED ENOUGH are outtakes from both the CLOSER TO THE SUN (including tracks that were previously issued as a limited edition bonus CD) and CHRONCHITIS sessions, as well as bevy of new material recorded at Miami's famed Circle House Studios, and such cover tunes as UB40's "I Would Do For You" and the traditional "I Know You Rider" (most notably covered by the Grateful Dead). Also making their first appearance on a Slightly Stoopid studio album are newly recorded renditions of such long-time live standards "False Rhythms" and "Sensimilla."

        Seemingly always on the move, there appears to be no slowing down in sight for Slightly Stoopid, and according to Miles, that's precisely what fuels the group's creativity. "For us, the most important thing in the future, we just want to stay busy and always playing music – whether creating, touring, or just sitting on your couch and jamming. I think we'll always be recording. And just have fun – without the fun part, it ain't worth it."

        SOJA

        SOJA

        Jacob Hemphill (lead vocals & guitar) met Bobby Lee (bass) in the first grade in Virginia, shortly after Jacob returned from living in Africa with his family. The two instantly became best friends, and in middle school found a common love for hip hop, rock and reggae music. Throughout middle and high school, they met Ryan Berty (drums), Patrick O'Shea (keyboards) and Kenneth Brownell (percussion). Together they formed SOJA. In the formative years the band gigged locally in the DC area while a couple of the guys finished school. All the while making plans to hit the road after graduation...

        In 2005 the band hit the road... and they hit the road hard. Often dubbed "road warriors", SOJA has brought their unique sound and stage show to nearly every city in North America, as well as many cities throughout Europe, South America, the Pacific Islands and the Caribbean. While touring in Puerto Rico the band linked up with sax player Hellman Escorcia & trumpet player Rafael Rodriguez. These two exceptional musicians earned their position as SOJA's mainstay horn section by helping further develop the band's eclectic sound.

        With no signs of slowing down. SOJA is planning a world tour for 2011/2012 in support of their upcoming album release. It's all about the message in the music for this band. "People think we write music about the earth for the earth's sake, but its not really like that. If we harm the earth, it will reject us. For all we know, its happened one hundred times before. This place gets too hot, that's it. Reset button. That's why I sing what I sing - to pull us all in the same direction, the same future. Without that, were finished (Jacob Hemphill)."

        There is no doubt about it. This band is on the forefront of a Revolution with hopes to bring about positive change: environmentally, politically and socially. "Maybe we need to WANT to fix it. Maybe stop talking, maybe start listening. Maybe we need to look at this world less like a square and more like a circle. Maybe just maybe God's not unfair, maybe we're all his kids and he's up there. Maybe he loves us for all our races, maybe he hates us when we're all so racist. Maybe he sees us, when we dont care, that its heaven right here, but its hell over there. Then maybe the meek will inherit this earth, cause it was written before... so..." Everything Changes - SOJA.

          Tennessee Stiffs

          Pioneering a sound called "death folk", the tunes are sometimes raucous, sometimes hauntingly beautiful, and sometimes downright strange.

          Tennessee Stiffs formed in late 2011. Founding members Lee Sadler and Cara Buysse’s paths crossed when they backed Robin Smith, Lee a longtime bassist and Cara the new pianist. It didn’t take long for the two to find that they had the same passion, the same aspiration:

          something dark, something pretty,
          something great, something gritty.

          Fueled by their eclectic musical interests, they were determined to create something never heard before. They seamlessly blend Delta Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, and Country into a powerful and provocative genre they call “death folk”. Late night writing sessions soaked in whiskey gave the loving duo a sound all their own. Cara’s melodies range from hauntingly beautiful to wildly soulful. Blended with Lee’s foot-stomping rhythms and gravelly vocals, the two take the “Beauty and the Beast” standard to heart.

          The duo spent their first year as a band and as a couple writing tunes and playing shows, often using old books and a hat containing lines of poetry as inspiration. They wanted to build each song as its own story in a greater collection of real-life events. Each song’s characters are vividly constructed and personal, allowing for the listener to relate.

          Bassist/guitarist/vocalist Casey Kuznieski joined in the summer of 2012, bringing a new level of levity and technical skill to the table. His wide range of talents and involvement with the local music scene allowed the band to expand on stage, where any member could potentially play several instruments. Nearing the end of 2014, Jay Koelbl, out of McMinnville TN, came across an ad posted by a band called TENNESSEE STIFFS and couldn't resist. The musical gods had answered all of our prayers! His steady precision and crowd-pleasing riffs are just scratching the surface of what he brings to the group. Tennessee Stiffs has become a band’s band: each member is a cornerstone in building a new tune.

          So whether you come to see the spectacle of the full band or the intimacy of the acoustic show, you’re bound to find your toe tapping.

          Come one, come all
          Here we go!

                                          Wilco

                                          Wilco rose from the ashes of the seminal roots rockers Uncle Tupelo, who disbanded in 1994. While Jay Farrar, one of the group's two singer/songwriters, went on to form the band Son Volt, his ex-partner Jeff Tweedy established Wilco along with the remaining members of Tupelo's final incarnation, which included drummer Ken Coomer as well as part-time bandmates John Stirratt (bass) and Max Johnston (mandolin, banjo, fiddle, and lap steel). Guitarist Jay Bennett rounded out the group, which in 1995 issued their debut album, A.M., a collection of spry country-rock tunes that followed the course established in Tweedy's earlier work. Wilco's sophomore effort, 1996's two-disc set Being There, marked a radical transformation in the group's sound; while remaining steeped in the style that earned Tweedy his reputation, the songs took unexpected detours into psychedelia, power pop, and soul, complete with orchestral touches and R&B horn flourishes. Shortly after the release of Being There, which most critics judged to be among the year's best releases, Johnston left the group to play with his sister, singer Michelle Shocked, and was replaced by guitarist Bob Egan of the band Freakwater. At the same time, while remaining full-time members of Wilco, Stirratt, Bennett, and Coomer also began performing together in the pop side project Courtesy Move. In 1998, Wilco collaborated with singer/songwriter Billy Bragg on Mermaid Avenue, a collection of performances based on unreleased material originally written by Woody Guthrie.

                                          Their stunningly lush third album, Summerteeth, followed in 1999 and met with critical acclaim but only average sales, initiating tensions with their label, Warner Bros. 2000 saw the release of Mermaid Avenue, Vol. 2, which featured more selections from the band's collaborations with Bragg on Woody Guthrie's unfinished songs. Following this release, longtime drummer Ken Coomer decided to amicably leave the band and was replaced by the Chicago-based Glenn Kotche. The band then focused on recording their fourth album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, which ultimately led to the departure of guitarist Jay Bennett, and further tensions with their label. Unwilling to change the album to make it more "commercially viable," Wilco bought the finished studio tapes from Warner/Reprise for a reported $50,000 and left the label altogether. Leaked tracks from the album surfaced on the Internet in late 2001, and the stripped-down lineup of Tweedy, Kotche, Stirratt, and multi-instrumentalist Leroy Bach embarked on a small tour to support -- or drum up support for -- their unreleased album. Nonesuch Records picked up the album and the official release came out in early 2002 to widespread critical acclaim. Meanwhile, an independent film documenting the drama surrounding the album entitled I Am Trying to Break Your Heart followed in the fall of 2002. During the down time after the album was recorded, Tweedy composed and recorded the film score to the Ethan Hawke film Chelsea Walls, which ended up being released around the same time as Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

                                          Wilco toured extensively following the release of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, and in 2003 began work on their next album, A Ghost Is Born. While sessions went smoothly compared to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, after the album was finished Leroy Bach left the band in a split that was described as mutual and amicable; guitarist Nels Cline, keyboardist Mike Jorgensen, and multi-instrumentalist Pat Sansone joined Wilco for their subsequent tour. Shortly before the album's release, Tweedy surprised many fans by announcing he had entered a drug rehabilitation facility to treat a dependency on painkillers, prescribed to treat a long history of migraine headaches aggravated by panic disorder. Tweedy discussed his heath problems in depth, along with the often tangled history of Wilco and Uncle Tupelo, in Wilco: Learning How to Die, a biography of the group written by rock journalist Greg Kot, published to coincide with A Ghost Is Born's release in the spring of 2004. The following year, the group released Kicking Television: Live in Chicago, a 23-track collection recorded in the Windy City's Vic Theatre, an album that was later deemed one of the Top 20 best live albums by Q Magazine. In 2007 Wilco's sixth studio album, Sky Blue Sky, hit shelves. ~ Jason Ankeny & Zac Johnson, All Music Guide

                                            The Melvins

                                            The Melvins formed in Aberdeen/Montesano, WA in 1983 the founding members were Buzz, Mike Dillard (drums), and ex-Mudhoney bassist Matt Lukin. Buzz, Mike, and Matt all went to high school in Montesano. The name Melvins came from a grocery clerk at the Thriftway in Montesano where King Buzzo served as clerk and vandal. Melvin was the most hated fellow employee and they felt it to be an appropriately ridiculous name.

                                            When Mike couldn't cut it, as rumor has it because the songs were getting too mathematically complex, Dale was recruited out of the Iron Maiden cover band he played in at the age of 15. Matt was replaced by Lori Black (Lorax) (Shirley Temple's daughter) when they left Aberdeen for San Francisco.

                                            The Melvins have had quite a few bass player changes during their tenure. Check out the bassist morgue to learn more. The Melvins live in Hollywood, CA right now.

                                            The Melvins Discography is an exhaustive resource of their many releases. They were on a major label Atlantic Records for three albums, although most would agree they're not the type of band that would appeal to a major label. They knew this while they were being signed and just took advantage of the drunken blitz the record companies were on in signing any band connected to a supposed Seattle "grunge" sound.

                                            Dale filled in for Nirvana when they were between drummers and he appears on Incesticide and Bleach as a result of those sessions. Buzz has a side project called Fantômas with Mike Patton (Faith No More/Mr. Bungle) who is also owner of Ipecac Recordings the label the melvins are currently releasing material through. He also plays guitar in the hardcore/grind "supergroup" Venomous Concept, featuring members/former members of Napalm Death and Brutal Truth (also released through Ipecac). Melvins have also released music on Boner Records, Alchemy Records, Amphetamine Reptile Records, Alternative Tentacles Records, and numerous others in the manner of 7"s and whatnot.

                                            Dale has a side project called Altamont. Kevin Rutmanis (bassist, 1998 - early 2005) used to be in the band Cows, he also is in another Mike Patton project along with Duane Denison of the Jesus Lizard called Tomahawk. I would completely recommend anything a Melvins member has released. Melvins have toured with KISS, White Zombie, NIN, L7, Primus, Tool, and Rush, among others and were also on the Ozzfest tour in 98. They toured with a second guitarist at one point David Scott Stone (a great noisician). If you ever get the chance to see them live be sure to give them gifts, they prefer Cracker Barrel gift certificates.

                                                Moreland & Arbuckle

                                                “Raw, dirty, primal and infectious…sizzling guitar, sturdy vocals and rude harmonica” –USA Today
                                                “Deeply satisfying...gritty soul and blues with garage overtones and fire-and-brimstone vocals” –Living Blues Guitarist Aaron Moreland—co-founder of the groundbreaking Kansas-based trio Moreland & Arbuckle—describes their music as “gritty blues and roots rock from the heartland.” Moreland, harmonicist/vocalist Dustin Arbuckle and drummer Kendall Newby bring fierce electric fury and unrelenting punk rock energy to their original songs, inspired by raw Delta and Mississippi Hill Country blues. Their songs are expertly executed with musical muscle and fifth-gear urgency. When they perform more traditional blues, they play with the same decisive command. With each of their six previous releases, the band has grown musically and lyrically, creating a signature sound while earning a large and loyal worldwide fan base. Their legendary raw and raucous live shows are played with wild abandon. The New York Post says Moreland & Arbuckle have “a raw juke joint exuberance with a dirt-under-the fingernails garage band attack.” The group’s evolution continues with their Alligator Records debut Promised Land Or Bust, produced by Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Botch, The Sword). From the howling cosmic opener Take Me With You (When You Go) to the stomping Mean And Evil to the plaintive Mount Comfort, Promised Land Or Bust is a far-reaching musical showcase. The instantly-memorable, slice-of-life songs paint scenes of double-crossed lovers, women meaner than the devil, and isolated loners beaten down by careless love. According to Moreland, “The new album is consciously traditional but still has the signature drive and power that we have crafted over the past thirteen years.” Moreland says signing with Alligator is a perfect fit. “One of our biggest influences ever, Hound Dog Taylor, was the very first Alligator artist. One of the reasons we have the non-traditional lineup of no bass player was inspired by listening to Hound Dog’s music as we were coming up.” According to Alligator president Bruce Iglauer, bringing Moreland & Arbuckle to the label known for its Genuine Houserockin’ Music was an easy choice. “I’ve watched this band grow from talented interpreters of raw, traditional blues into creators of fresh, original roots-based songs. Live, the energy just pours out of them.” Aaron Moreland was born December 16, 1974. He played in a number of garage bands while growing up and was influenced by punk music before having what he calls his “Son House moment.” Hearing the blues legend’s Death Letter Blues for the first time at age 22, he changed course, focusing his playing on nothing but acoustic blues for the next several years. Dustin Arbuckle was born December 25, 1981. He first discovered blues in his mid-teens and received what he refers to as “a calling. Getting into blues made me want to play music,” he says. He played in blues-rock bands, inspired by Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson, while learning to sing with deep soul and honest authority. The two met at an open mic session in their hometown of Wichita, Kansas back in 2001 and they quickly bonded over their mutual love of blues. Less than a year later, they joined forces, their raw and energetic approach to the music melding perfectly. Soon after coming together, Moreland and Arbuckle played both as an acoustic duo and as The King Snakes, a four piece electric band. Keeping a bass player proved difficult, and they soon found they made a better sound without one, as Moreland kept the rhythm thumping on his guitar while Arbuckle took the music into overdrive with his harmonica and vocals. The band quickly became local heroes, filling clubs beyond capacity. It wasn’t long before they started touring larger cities around the country, earning new fans with every performance. From their 2005 self-release Caney Valley Blues to 2013’s 7 Cities on Telarc, Moreland & Arbuckle have grown from a fiery, crowd-pleasing duo to a genre-smashing three-piece band. Together, Moreland’s simultaneous bass, rhythm and lead guitar work and Arbuckle’s emotionally-charged harmonica and edgy vocals—driven by Newby’s propulsive drumming—create a sound that is forceful enough to grab a listener’s attention and nuanced enough to hold it. American Songwriter says the group’s music is “swampy, sweaty and muggy...mixing a bluesy foundation with bits of country, folk and squawking American rock and roll.” WNYC’s Soundcheck says the band plays “gritty blues with a thoroughly contemporary bite.” Over the course of their career, Moreland & Arbuckle have played hundreds of shows and have logged hundreds of thousands of road miles (recently replacing their van after driving it over 400,000 miles), performing in the United States, Canada and across Europe. In 2008 they spent 10 days in Iraq, playing for the troops. They’ve shared stages with ZZ Top, George Thorogood, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray and Los Lonely Boys. They’ll return to the road in support of the new album, with dates in the United States, Europe and beyond. No Depression says, “These guys have kegs full of talent. Their songs will keep you driving fast and long.” Now, with Promised Land Or Bust, Moreland & Arbuckle are ready to bust it all wide open. Arbuckle calls the new album “our best yet,“ and says, “we continue to evolve musically outside of the box we started in, but the bedrock—the blues —is always there.” Moreland adds, “We consciously went back to where we started and it took us to a brand new place.” That new place is clearly part of Moreland & Arbuckle’s never ending musical journey. And for them and their ever-growing fan base, there’s no turning back now.

                                                  Young Dubliners

                                                  The Young Dubliners are quite possibly Celtic rock’s hardest working band, playing hundreds of shows to thousands of fans across the US and Europe every year. In recent years they have twice appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, had songs featured in TV shows (Sons Of Anarchy, Human Target) and toured extensively as a headliner and as the opener for such a diverse list of artists as Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Johnny Lang and many more.

                                                  Although the Young Dubliners sound is most commonly called 'Celtic Rock', that label, as labels often can be, is misleading. The Irish influence is there, certainly, but it's not the only influence that rears its head on their albums, or in live shows. After all, several of the band members have no Irish roots of any kind. "That was always the idea", Keith Roberts, lead singer for the band explains. "The sound was always intended to be a hybrid because we all come from different backgrounds. Even though two of us are from Ireland, a lot of the music we listened to growing up wasn't Irish at all, but when we got here, we got homesick and developed a new appreciation for Irish Music. In truth the Celtic riffs can just as easily come from the American band members. Everyone writes now so you never know what you’ll end up with when you start on a new album.

                                                  The band is currently in the midst of recording their ninth studio album. This will be a unique experience for the band as they plan to release it independently for the first time in their career.

                                                  “We had a few offers but decided we were well overdue to take things into our own hands,” says Roberts, “After eight albums on various labels it just seemed right to go it alone for once and maintain full creative control.”

                                                  However “going it alone” did not mean without financial support and for that they turned to their fans. After only two weeks the band had received over half the necessary funds to complete the recording, manufacturing and marketing plan for the album and work began on February 1st, 2012. The road intervened as is usual for this non-stop touring band and the recording process was put on temporary hold as they commenced a long US summer tour followed by a month long European Fall run.

                                                  Now, safely returned to the US, the band is back in the studio full time and hopes are high to finish the album by March. There is a short tour planned for Alaska in February with the main roadwork starting up again in March. They plan to showcase much of the new material at the upcoming shows.

                                                  “Having a whole album of new songs really invigorates the live show for us and makes it exciting all over again” say Roberts. “It’s like a shot in the arm every time we go through this process”.

                                                  The pledge drive continues on their website at youngdubliners.com.

                                                        Electrifying performances around the West have folks buzzing about The Drunken Hearts and the band’s fiery sound. Forged on Colorado's high peaks and river banks, the band is comprised of five gentlemen that came together to create an honest brand of alternative Americana that resonates with audiences everywhere. Their sound has truly evolved over the course of only a few years, from an acoustic trio to the current electric powerhouse.

                                                        They fearlessly bottle a tempestuous, yet smoky brand of American music — infusing spirited vocals with electric and acoustic guitars, bass, pedal steel, and drums. This May the band's second studio album was released, produced by multi Grammy-winner Rob Eaton of Dark Star Orchestra.

                                                            Coyote Union

                                                            What makes a good band great, what makes them stand out above all the rest, is their commitment to an infallible ideal, the one thing that they strive to do to change people through their music, giving them a deeper experience. For Coyote Union, that ideal is connection. Connection to their fans, to their music and to each other. Coyote Union hopes to inspire, uplift and encourage their listener to overcome the “hard stuff in life” by providing musical therapy and songs that move people by sharing their own life experience, hardship and emotion. People say they might be a little too nice, but they don’t care, they just want to reach as many people as they can with heartfelt words, and a positive spirit.

                                                            The band was born when founding members Mark Bertel (Percussion), Chris Royer (Guitar), and Jacob Lane (Guitar) discovered Jordan Finley (Bass, Vocals) at the Baxter County Fair in Mountain Home, AR. After many long nights of jamming to the sound of yipping coyotes under the Ozark night sky, the four quickly became very close friends and a well oiled machine and thus spawned the name, “Coyote Union.” Later the band found Wes Dorethy (Vocals, Violin, Mandolin, and Piano) to round out their signature prodigious “Folk n’ Roll” sound. After playing with Wes and being spoiled by the smile jerking sound and style of the way he played the four knew they had found the last piece of the puzzle and it was pure magic. Eventually Royer and Lane left the band and they were replaced by Geoffrey Watts (Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals and Keys).

                                                            In the early days, the band would practice in a secluded barn, deep in the Arkansas wilderness. The band continued to grow and with two EP’s under their belt as well as many live performances, the group moved their home stomping ground from the barn to a local abandoned bowling alley once called, “River Lake Lanes.” With a little bit of elbow grease and know how they fixed it up and built a stage on the very lanes that had the vintage building running in its hay day.

                                                            Coyote Union’s sound is the culmination of their influences and experiences, drawing from the down home roots and punk-rock sensibility and need to create deep connections. Their style is a melting pot of rock, punk, blues, folk, Americana and a touch of classical and grunge, but no matter what the style, they always play from the heart. Rather than writing hits, Coyote Union’s aim is to reach people that need to hear their songs for inspiration, and to help them through the down times, writing about love, anger, passion, conquering, accomplishment, triumph, sadness and sorrow. Both their dynamic music and deeply moving lyrics take listeners on an emotional roller coaster and pull on the heart strings. For example, the song “Bones” tells a tale of heartbreak. Bertel elaborates saying, “ When you love someone you really feel it in your bones, in the deepest part of your body. You feel it more intensely than any other feeling, but eventually resolves in moving on and overcoming the strife.” Another song, “Teardrop River,” is an coming of age story of empowerment. “It's easy to lay down, take the easy way and live a mediocre life without fulfillment. It's the people that take the hard way that we like, that go above the norm and do the unexpected.” Bertels explains. Coyote Union hopes to reach as many people as they possibly can leaving a deep legacy behind. Not for the fame or the money, but for the interaction with the people.
                                                            Coyote Union has graced stages across the country and at festivals including Wakarusa and Harvest Festival AR, and are embarking on an 12-date tour of Europe including Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands and Austria in the Fall of 2014. Their first full-length self-titled album is due out in late 2014.

                                                                                        Often leaning on the simple descriptor, “Bourbon-fueled, Bayou rock”, The Delta Saints are a Nashville-based quintet composed of Ben Ringel (vocals/resonator guitar), Dylan Fitch (lead guitar), David Supica (bass), Ben Azzi (drums), and Nate Kremer (organ). They have spent the past six years carving out their very own space in the musical gray-area occupied by other blues-inspired artists like Gary Clark Jr., Tedeschi Trucks Band, and North Mississippi Allstars.

                                                                                        The band’s founding members met in the fall of 2007 as a group of college transfer students looking for drinking buddies. Friday night hangs quickly turned into Friday night jam sessions, and before they knew it, a friendship had formed. The discovery of their shared passion for creating and performing music eventually brought about the need for a name. Ringel’s upbringing in south-central Louisiana seemed an obvious connection, but he will be the first to tell you, “It just sounded right.” He continues, “One day we’ll make up a great story about how we got our name. It will involve prison and bourbon and voodoo, but until then, the truth will have to suffice.”

                                                                                        However it happened, once they found their footing, The Delta Saints never looked back.

                                                                                        In 2010, they recorded and released two separate EP’s, Pray On and A Bird Called Angola, respectively. Over the next two years they toured relentlessly throughout the United States and Europe. In 2012, having amassed a troop of diehard supporters, they completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund the creation of their first full-length record, Death Letter Jubilee.

                                                                                        Officially released in early 2013, Death Letter Jubilee marked the beginning of what proved to be a very productive year for the band. Highlighted by major support slots with Michael Franti & Spearhead, Goo Goo Dolls, Robert Randolph & the Family Band; festival plays at Wakarusa (US), Belgium Rhythm & Blues Festival (Belgium), Moulin Blues Festival (Netherlands); and a summer tour that touted 20 sold out shows in 13 different countries.

                                                                                        Rest assured the momentum building behind The Delta Saints has not gone unnoticed. They kicked off 2014 with an extensive 50-city international tour opening for Zac Brown’s southern rock brethren, Blackberry Smoke. To commemorate the occasion, the band released a new 3-song EP called Drink it Slow, featuring two new studio recordings and one live recording. The EP is available as a free download from the band’s website.

                                                                                        Summer 2014 has seen the release of their first live album, Live at Exit/In. The album captures an electric sold out 2-night weekend in their hometown of Nashville. In support of Live at Exit/In, The Delta Saints will hit the road on another international tour highlighted by a handful of major summer festival appearances at Summerfest (US), Summer Camp Festival (US), The Ride Festival (US), Grolsch Blues Festival (Germany) & Leffingeleuren Festival (Belgium).

                                                                                        At the end of the day, The Delta Saints know that their continued success as a band depends on their hard work and willingness to continue soaking up every opportunity they are given.

                                                                                        “We want to grow, but we understand that it’s all in due time,” says Ringel. “We want to fully realize the weight of our experiences, and be able to savor them too. We pay our bills, we fill the gas tank in our van, and we pay for our own albums to be pressed, all because of the people who believe in our music,” Ringel reflects.

                                                                                        The Delta Saints have set out to build a name for themselves the old-fashioned way, winning over one fan at a time. They have already amassed an international following of friends, fans and supporters, and rest assured…they will make a believer out of you too.

                                                                                        Formed in 2005 in Auckland, New Zealand with influences wide throughout the decades before them of damn good music.
                                                                                        This band brings back the true essence of roots based rock n roll, punk and rockabilly blues.

                                                                                        Fronted by bad girl tease Labretta Suede, with her sexy gritty performances, full frontal outfits and irresistible, irreverent, deep rich vocals that simply

These two unruly and insatiable founding members are the essence behind this world traveled jungle of juju strange.

However, feeling the fever to spread the disease long and far from the way down under pools of volcanic laha, hey relocated to the other side of the planet.

A man of 50's super hero physic and proportions yet with dainty ankles for high-heel wearing and stocking steeling. However, all this mind altering swooning, would not be complete without the pounds of dirt and intangible rhythms coming from the drummer region. Take a bow, Seanzie Dirtbags.

A now hotter then ever *Labretta Suede and The Motel 6* have been crowd maddening, swooning and sweeping from state to state.

                                                                                        Seymour Stein’s office sits way up in the highrises of the Rockefeller Plaza; a corner office, with a beautiful view out over New York City, its surfaces cluttered with all of the memorabilia, awards and accumulated paraphernalia of a lifetime spent in the music industry.
                                                                                        It was into this office that the six members of Delta Rae shuffled one day in the summer of 2011. A rather convoluted connecti
                                                                                        on had led them here to this meeting, their first with a major record label, and no one was quite sure how to proceed. “We were very nervous,” recalls Ian Holljes, with perhaps some understatement.

                                                                                        “But we talked briefly, and then Seymour said ‘Well, why don’t you sing something for me?’” The band duly launched into Hey Hey Hey, a joyous, rollicking tune that begins with an exquisite four-part harmony. Ten seconds in, Stein asked them to stop. The band balked. But Stein stood up, walked to the door and hollered for his colleagues to join them. “You gotta hear these people!” he cried into the hallway. “They sound so beautiful!”

                                                                                        The story that led Delta Rae to Stein’s office, a major label deal, and the release of their stunning debut album, had in fact begun many years before, in the Holljes household, where siblings Ian, Eric and Brittany, enjoyed a childhood that was close yet itinerant, carrying them from Durham, North Carolina, to the Bay area of San Francisco, via Nashville, Tennessee, and Marietta, Georgia. Throughout it all, they relished the continuity of great music — their parents’ record collection, rich with James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Fleetwood Mac, Paul Simon.

                                                                                        Along the way, Ian and Eric forged what they describe as “a close musical bond” writing songs together from a young age. Their younger sister, meanwhile, was in possession of “this huge, brassy voice,” Ian recalls. “When she was young, it was like a lion that you couldn’t quite tame. But as she got older and we got to know her voice we saw the power in it.”

                                                                                        The brothers both headed back to Durham for college, and after graduation decided they should pursue music in earnest. They convinced their lion-voiced sister to join them, as well as an old friend, Elizabeth Hopkins, whose singing they had always loved — “it’s got that raspiness,” Eric says, “that old soul to it.”
                                                                                        The four set up home in an old house in the woods, and set about finding their collective voice, crafting their songs, and playing them live. “Very early on I felt we had found something special,” says Ian, who with his brother writes the lyrics. “It was really the uniting of the four voices, a type of music that resonated with me. Just to be in the thick of it is amazing, because the four people in this band sing with such heart — you just lose yourself in it.”

                                                                                        By late 2010, the four had become six, with the addition of drummer Mike McKee and bassist Grant Emerson, and were honing their material on the road. A lot of the songs evolved through live performance: Mike, for instance, innovating the percussion with chains and trash can lids, while Grant picked up an upright bass to round out the band’s sound.

                                                                                        For Ian, Eric, Brittany and Elizabeth it was a matter of working out how best to get their voices, their words, and their sentiment heard. “Playing those early shows, you’re often confronted by half-working sound-systems and weird venues and so you have to find an energy that can at times transcend the music,” Ian explains. “So a lot of times we’d come down off stage and sing something in the middle of the audience, or be screaming out as opposed to singing in order to convey the emotion, to find something primal that will affect people.” Soon earning a reputation as incredible live performers, the band's hope was that if their music was pushed and pulled and tried and tested in front of an audience, then by the time they came to record, the songs would be strong and robust.

                                                                                        The 12 songs on Carry the Fire display that muscularity, as well as great tenderness and, at times, vulnerability. They are songs that reflect the great stew of the band’s own shared histories and influences, as well as those of the land that bore them. There is the richness of Americana, of gospel, bluegrass, blues and pop, but there is also the well-oaked, deep-rooted tradition of storytelling, folklore, mythology. There is a thread that binds together west coast harmonies and the gospel choir, Southern gothic and civil rights, all of the tensions and the joys and the fierce, bright hope of America’s great cultural, geographical, musical journey.

                                                                                        Some of the songs here explore their relationship with Durham — the city where they now live of course, but also where the Holljes’ mother was raised, and where their parents studied. “The song Surrounded is about how the town has a lot of ghosts for us,” Ian explains. “It’s about the relationships that we make and the people that we fall in love with and the ghosts of the people that they’ve been with before and who have left an impression on them.”
                                                                                        Country House, too, stems from Durham: charting the year Ian spent caring for his former professor, a paraplegic; a time that gave him cause to contemplate the isolation of growing older, and the mortality of those we love. And the stirring, bittersweet Holding On to Good belongs here too, nodding to Brittany’s decision to leave behind her first love and move to North Carolina to make music.
                                                                                        As well as tales of loves lost and kindled and preserved, there are plenty of songs on the album shaped by the shared history of the siblings (and Elizabeth, a friend since childhood) and that celebrate the intensity of that bond.

                                                                                        Morning Comes, for instance, Ian describes as “coming very much from our family” of the strength they showed weathering hard times and unemployment, pressed on by “the feeling that the best moments come on the other side of that; if you can just hold out, then things get better.” Eric agrees: “I think a lot of our songs are laced with hope,” he says. “Even the darker ones have hopeful qualities to them. And I think that’s something we grew up with and we believe in — we believe in the resilience of people, and we’ve seen it time and time again.”

                                                                                        And certainly new single Is There Anyone Out There, carries this same spirit. A song that Ian wrote while working at a desk job, grafting 40 hour weeks, wondering if there might be more to life out there. “It’s a song about disillusionment,” he says, “about growing up and not necessarily being the person you envisaged yourself to be.”
                                                                                        It is this song, too, that has borne the album’s title. “It’s saying that we’re just moving forward, and we don’t have control over what the next generation does or what they do with what we give them,” Ian says. “We only get so long on earth, so all we can do is carry the fire.”
                                                                                        It is an appropriate image, perhaps, for this band — the inheritors of a great musical mantle, carrying forth such tradition, but bringing to it their own flame and ignition, the wisdom of their own generation, and the promise of so much to come.

Hailing from Boston, they’ve solidified a dedicated following in the Northeast, playing most staple venues in the area (ie. Paradise Rock Club, Nectar’s, The Spot Underground, Stone Church). Several New England festival appearances (ie. Catskill Chill, StrangeCreek, Disc Jam) and extensive touring down the East Coast and across the Midwest have given them Nationwide recognition, with sold out shows as far west as Denver, CO (Quixote’s). A focus on live improvisation, set list variety, and musical exploration makes every show different from the last, truly making The Jauntee a live act to see again and again.

                                                                                        Drawing influence from a wide variety of bands, The Jauntee’s improvisational landscape spans multiple genres, including: Funk/Rock/Jazz/Progressive/Bluegrass/Psychedelic and Ambient music. Their willingness to explore genres, abandon all song structure, and dive into ‘the weird’ sets them apart from your average upcoming Jam Band. They aim to push the boundaries of improvisation, embrace the moment and engage the audience. With an ever-expanding song catalog and an inclination for open ended improvisation, every show promises to be a unique experience.

                                                                                        With eight albums selling over two million records and worldwide hits like "Jackie Blue" and "If You Want To Get To Heaven" the Ozark Mountain Daredevils have come a long way from the Missouri bars and porches where their music was born. It all began for the Daredevils in 1971 when a collection of singer songwriters from the Springfield area put together a band as an outlet for their songwriting. They Played their first gig near the end of 1971 and, in the spring of the following year, went into the studio to make a demo tape. The tape came to the attention of David Anderle at A&M Records, who liked what he heard and passed the tape on to A&M president, Jerry Moss. This resulted in the band signing to A&M with Anderle and Glyn Johns producing, thus the Daredevils were off to London to Make their first album at the famed Olympic Studios. This first album contained the smash hit "If You Wanna Get To Heaven" written by Cash and Dillon, and produced a gold album. The pop"Jackie Blue", written by Cash and Larry Lee, came from the second album "It'll Shine When It Shines", and was a top-five worldwide record.

                                                                                        The band has made subsequent albums, and continues to build their audience through records and touring across the U.S. and Canada, performing for their large cult following. The band was described by Rolling Stone Magazine as "A mixture of Country, Appalchia, the south, and Rock & Roll".

The soulful 11-track album includes co-writes with Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and Tyler Lyle, as well as guest appearances by John Mayer, Indie.Arie and Nikka Costa. Elmore Magazine calls Lightyears a look at “Harris doing what he does best… performing alone with his guitar, singing beautiful and all-too-real lyrics.” David Ryan Harris began his music career in 1991 when he co-founded band Follow For Now, but in 1997 embarked on his journey as a solo artist when he signed with Columbia Records and released his first self-titled record. He has since had the pleasure of writing with, playing with and/or producing artists from Dave Matthews, Cassandra Wilson, Santana, Marc Broussard, and Guy Sebastian. Harris will release his next album in September of 2016.

                                                                                              Those familiar with the decades-spanning oeuvre of Bob Mould—from his pioneering early ’80s work with Hüsker Dü to his solo work in singer-songwriter, electronic, and rock modes, to the deafening pop sparkle of Sugar—might expect a new album bearing the title Silver Age to be a somber and reflective set in the mode of his last album, 2009’s Life and Times…and they’d be way off the mark.

                                                                                              Silver Age is an intense and concise ten song blast far more reminiscent of Bob’s latter-day Hüsker Dü output—first marked by the monumental sprawl of 1984’s Zen Arcade which then gave way to the short, sharp pop focus of 1985’s New Day Rising—and his early ’90s tenure with Sugar, whose classic debut Copper Blue marks its 20th anniversary this year. That said, Silver Age is no nostalgia trip. Aside from lyrical content that shows Bob as in-the-now as ever, Silver Age came together quickly and organically in the wake of a series of electric solo dates in 2011 supporting Foo Fighters (where he guested each night on “Dear Rosemary,” the track from the Foos’ Wasting Light on which Bob shares writing and vocal duties) as well as a solo acoustic/book tour around last summer’s publication of See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody, the autobiography Bob co-authored with Michael Azerrad (Come as You Are, Our Band Could Be Your Life). These events culminated in a tribute last November at Los Angeles’ Disney Hall that featured the likes of Dave Grohl, Ryan Adams, Spoon’s Britt Daniel, and Craig Finn and Tad Kubler of The Hold Steady celebrating the width and breadth of Bob’s body of work.

                                                                                              “I’d been batting around the idea of another aggressive pop record for some time,” Bob says, “especially as the 20th anniversary of Copper Blue kept getting closer. But it was really the shows with Foo Fighters that got me thinking when I started writing for this record: Did I just write a Sugar song? Or a Foo Fighters song? Or one of my own songs? And does it really matter? Once I got that out of the way, it freed me up to have some fun and set about making a simple rock record.”

                                                                                              It’s no surprise, then, that Silver Age careens out of the speakers with a sense of exhilaration that reflects the excitement with which Bob and his live band of bassist Jason Narducy (Spl:t S:ngle, Verbow) and drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk, the Mountain Goats) cranked out the record in a tight whirlwind of a window from in early 2012. But that’s not to say that Silver Age is a lighthearted romp—as ever, there’s plenty of dark matter at the center of these sweet melodic nuggets. First single “The Descent,” for example, is one of those perfect moments that lands firmly in the Mould wheelhouse, with walls of luminescent guitars, phantom choruses, and infectious hooks all leading toward the concluding refrain of “My world, it is descending.” The opening one-two of “Star Machine” and “Silver Age,” on the other hand, pairs abrasive riffs with equally harsh meditations on fame, immaturity, and the lessons and consequences thereof. Other Silver Age highlights include the bittersweet romantic epic “Round the City Square” (“It feels like people always look to my songs to help define their own failed relationships,” Bob laughs); the upbeat and earnest celebration of “First Time Joy”; and the unabashedly literal “Keep Believing,” a rousing love letter to the records that shaped Bob’s personal and professional life. Listen closely and see how many of the references you can pinpoint:

                                                                                              I can see for miles, and everything’s in color
                                                                                              Rock and roll all night until I feel the thunder
                                                                                              I got a handle on some complicated fun

                                                                                              We’re all sniffing glue, pleasures so unknown
                                                                                              A circle drawn in blue, the murmur baritone
                                                                                              Picnic on a Pedro lawn, heaven took that monkey song
                                                                                              Never mind the battle won, could you be the loveless one?

                                                                                              “I don’t know if there’s an arc to this record,” Bob says. “But if I had to boil it down to one core idea, it would be: I love music. I love my life. I love what I do for a living. It’s right there on the lyric sheet; it references itself, really. More than any other record I’ve made, this one gives a real glimpse into how much making music means to me as a means of expression, as well as what music means to me as a fan.”

                                                                                              And so has it always been the case for Bob Mould, the music he’s created defining every phase of his life, both cataloging memories and propelling him ever forward: Hüsker Dü’s formation in 1979 and the hardcore anthems, tight, melodic, hard-pop chestnuts, and sprawling double-vinyl conceptual opuses it churned out in equal measure up to its dramatic 1987 flameout; Bob’s solo works ranging from his landmark 1989 debut Workbook to Black Sheets of Rain (1990), Body of Song (2005), District Line (2008), and Life and Times (2009); his forays into electronic music, including 2002’s Modulate and his Blowoff collaboration with Richard Morel; and of course, the soon-to-be-reissued body of work that Sugar packed into its brief existence, featuring the 1992 debut Copper Blue which Bob and his band have been playing front to back at recent live shows. It seems to be Bob’s summations and reflections on these major creative periods of his life and career that open up new wellsprings while coming to terms with the old works—a natural process that has produced winning results yet again in the form of Silver Age.

                                                                                              “It’s no coincidence that this record came at this point,” Bob says. “In 1991, closing the door on a run of all-acoustic shows led right into the beginning of Sugar and Copper Blue. So you could state a case that the solo shows accompanying the book readings through 2011—plus the Disney Hall show and knowing the 20th anniversary of Copper Blue was right around the corner—wrapping that all up led me right into Silver Age. I’m well aware that there’s no way to get into a time machine and go back to being the person I was 20 years ago, but it is nice to get three musicians in the studio together and get back inside that three-minute pop song structure again.”

                                                                                                          Over the course of 15 years and seven full-length albums, Blitzen Trapper has crafted one of the more compelling and varied catalogs in contemporary rock and roll. Indeed, singer and guitarist Eric Earley, who is also the Portland, Oregon-based band's primary songwriter, is possessed of a musical and lyrical sensibility that is remarkably deep and wide; big ideas and universal emotions are wrung from the seemingly plainspoken details of small-screen and often highly personal stories, and set to music that reaches way, way back to old-timey folk and bluegrass, travels through everything from country, psychedelia and soul to prog, garage and metal, indulges gloriously in the classic rock of the 70s and 80s, and makes occasional side trips into hip-hop, skewed pop and noisey freakouts.
                                                                                                          Even while continuing to explore broad stylistic territory, Blitzen Trapper's eighth studio album, a 10-song collection titled All Across This Land, stands as an exceptionally focused and immediate effort. Though it follows 2013's somewhat experimental VII, a futuristic hip-hop/country-rock hybrid, All Across This Land, in contrast, is a top-down, tightly defined piece of classic rock and roll, full of big riffs, bigger hooks and compelling, instantly relatable lyrics. In sound and scope it recalls two of the band's more beloved albums, 2008's breakthrough fourth effort, Furr, and 2011's landmark American Goldwing. "I think it's a return to the sort of more 'classic' Blitzen Trapper thing, for sure," Earley says.
                                                                                                          It also follows something of a pattern. "It seems to be that every other album goes this way," Earley continues. "After Furr we did [2010's] Destroyer of the Void, where we were exploring all these different things. Then came American Goldwing. After that, VII. Now we're back to that rock thing again."
                                                                                                          Something else All Across This Land shares with Furr and American Goldwing: the fact that these new songs came quick, and in a very concentrated period of time. "Those two albums, I wrote all the songs at once and they all hang together. But the records that came in between, they were written over the course of a year-and-a-half or so," Earley says. For All Across This Land, he continues, "I had all the songs written and demoed in a three or four month span. And I think they work together because everything came in such a short period."
                                                                                                          And yet, for a record characterized by its focus, there is still plenty of musical and lyrical ground covered within its ten songs. Gentle, almost folksy moments–the lilting, pedal steel-inflected "Love Grow Cold"; the fingerpicked closer "Across the River"; the acoustic-guitar-and-harmonica-led "Lonesome Angel"–abound, even if, for the most part, All Across This Land is defined by its more upbeat rock-and-roll numbers. To that end, Earley says it's the record that perhaps best represents what Blitzen Trapper is as a live act. "It's funny, because I think with this band, there's two different ways people see us," he says. "People who just hear the music somewhere, they tend to think of us as this, like, indie-folk act. But people who come to the shows know that we're actually a hard rock band. And who knows? Maybe all that some people really want from us is folk music. But what we like to do is play rock music."
                                                                                                          On All Across This Land, they certainly do. The album kicks off with "All Across This Land," a slice of sun-drenched rock propelled by a stabbing and syncopated guitar riff and full-voiced chords, accented by some euphoric "hoo hoo" backing vocals. When Earley's vocal enters, it's with a greeting of sorts: "Welcome to earth my son you're here just in time / So much to learn so many ways you can shine." The song is, at its core, a celebration of life, in particular of one that is just beginning. "One of the members of our band, Mike [Van Pelt] had just had his second boy, and I was thinking a lot about that," Earley says. From there, he also began to look back on his relationship with his own father, a bluegrass and folk musician. "I was remembering how my father taught me to play music, There's just so much potential in that relationship you have with a new life."
                                                                                                          From here, the record moves into "Rock and Roll Was Made for You," another celebration of sorts, this one for music itself. Over a driving, percussive guitar riff, Earley testifies about its sometimes otherworldly powers: "Rock and roll gonna make you shout / It's for shooting down planes after blacking out."
                                                                                                          Music also serves as the inspiration behind the record's third track, the pulsing and atmospheric "Mystery and Wonder." "In a lot of ways this one is me reminiscing about the songs I've written in the past and my reasons for writing them," Earley says. "And it also looks at how we got into playing music as a band. Because we all came from much smaller places and then we moved to the city, which was Portland. Now, Portland isn't really that big a place, but to us it was. And that's where it all started." Another cut, "Nights Were Made For Love" finds Earley examining his life and band from a more nostalgic perspective. Over a quick-paced but laidback country-rock rhythm, he sings about being "stupid, strange and young at heart / and all we wanted was to rock and roll." "It's looking back at our high school days–going to football games, playing music," he says. "In certain ways, it's sort of the story of the journey of our band."
                                                                                                          Earley's childhood comes into play in a much different way on the dark and driving "Cadillac Road." "That song is about a small mill town in the mountains outside of where we all grew up," the singer explains. "Around '83 or '84, they shut down the mill and everyone was told to pack up and leave. And everyone did–but one guy stayed. People said he lived in the woods, and that if you listened you could hear him at night. It was this odd story that stuck with me, and I felt like I should tell that story." But in telling the tale of one man, Earley manages to touch on much larger themes of loss, regret and perseverance in the face of a shifting American landscape. "Gotta change with the times," he sings at one point, "but I dont have the heart."
                                                                                                          The album ends with another big statement, "Across the River," a rumination on life and death that Earley sees as something of a bookend to opener "All Across This Land." "I feel like they tie in together, because the first song is about new life, and the last one is almost a near-death experience," he says. "I'm crossing a river to another place that's something like the afterlife–it's heaven, but it's not. And then my father shows up and he says, 'You're not supposed to be here yet. You've got more stuff to do.' "
                                                                                                          Earley's father comes up often in the context of his lyrics, which is understandable–the elder Earley has cast a long shadow over his son's musical life. "My dad and my grandfather both played instruments–guitars, banjos...my grandfather was a harmonica virtuoso," Earley says. "So there was a lot of music around me as a child. And it was old-timey stuff. Like mountain music–the kinds of songs where no one knows who wrote them, basically."
                                                                                                          Earley's childhood was so rooted in this music that he didn't get turned on to rock and roll until much later, when he was already in high school. "So to me," he says, "the 80s is kind of my foundation for rock. A lot of my influence is from the Replacements, R.E.M., that kind of stuff. Even Pavement in the early 90s." As a result, on All Across This Land, "when I'm thinking of rock and roll, I'm thinking of Paul Westerberg, to be honest," Earley admits with a laugh. In addition to Westerberg, he also cites Joe Walsh as one of his main rock influences: "He's always been one of my favorite guitar players, and you can hear it on the album. The riffs and chords on 'All Across This Land,' that's straight from Joe Walsh."
                                                                                                          That love of a particular type of rock and roll helped guide Blitzen Trapper's approach on All Across This Land. "We recorded it specifically to be a two guitar, bass, drums and piano record," Earley says. "Every song is a band song, and arranged just how we'd play it onstage. Because at this point, we've made tons of records and we've played tons of shows. And the people who come out to see us, they understand what we're doing and they don't care about genres or anything like that. They're more interested in our actual specific unique personality as a band."
                                                                                                          As for what that specific personality is? "I think there's two kinds of songs I love to write," Earley says. "I love songs that rock hard and that just make you feel good, and then I love songs that are sad and introspective and touch you in a very deep place."
                                                                                                          Which, in essence, is exactly what Blitzen Trapper puts forth on All Across This Land. "I was trying to distill everything down to those two things," Earley explains. And if, in doing so, the band happens to pick up a host of different sounds and styles along the way, so be it. "We're never going to be a band that plays the same song over and over again," he says. "We like to explore. And sometimes that's not so easy for people to deal with. But we're going to just keep on doing what we do."

Since then, the list of songs has grown exponentially, and the SMF stage show has become nothing short of incendiary. While the band has been known to perform entire sets by certain bands (like the Descendents), they have recently started writing their own songs and plan on showcasing both originals and covers on a regular basis.

                                                                                                                Stiff Middle Fingers (SMF) is primarily a classic punk cover band. We play songs by Black Flag, Descendents, Minutemen, The Jesus Lizard, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks, Dead Kennedys, Wipers, Misfits, The Damned, Devo, Husker Du, Bad Brains, Mudhoney, The Vapors and many more...including Stiff Little Fingers, of course. We also write our own tunes from time to time, which carry the militant, SST-style DIY aesthetic of the songs we cover.

                                                                                                                The way Corey Smith sees it, he owes a debt to his fans. And it’s one he is determined to repay with his 10th album, While the Gettin’ Is Good. The project, released on Sugar Hill Records, marks the first time that the singer-songwriter, a wildly popular touring artist who has produced all of his past efforts, has turned over the reins to a bona fide country music producer in Keith Stegall. The result is Smith’s most ambitious record yet, as well as a return on the investment made by the fans who have supported him since his first album in 2003.

                                                                                                                “A lot of start-up acts are using fan-funded programs to finance their record. That’s what my whole career has been: Kickstarter before Kickstarter. When my fans show up and buy a ticket and a t-shirt, they’re investing in what I’m doing,” says Corey. “It’s my responsibility to invest it wisely and give them the best album I can. That’s what led me to While the Gettin’ Is Good.”

                                                                                                                It’s also what led him to Stegall, who has produced such radio heavyweights as Alan Jackson and Zac Brown Band. It was the producer’s track record, country-music experience and easy-going nature that convinced Corey that he was the man to refine his signature acoustic sound. “Keith knows how to make country records,” he says, “but I wanted to make my kind of country record and he understood that immediately. He simply wanted to get us comfortable in a studio environment so we could do what we do onstage every night. For me, it was very liberating to be able to focus solely on performing and not be burdened by a lot of the decision-making and drilling down that goes into producing. It was the first time I was able to go into the studio and focus on what I do best. Keith was there to handle the rest.”

                                                                                                                A collection of 12 songs, While the Gettin’ Is Good was written entirely by Corey. As such, it’s a deeply personal album, one that explores themes of love, hometown pride and even personal discovery. A close relative inspired one of the record’s highlights, “Bend,” about learning how to adapt to what life throws at you.

                                                                                                                “I wrote ‘Bend’ about a family member who was struggling with issues and I realized through writing this song that I was also talking about myself at the same time,” says Corey, who scored a Top 20 album with The Broken Record in 2011. “So that song really hits home.”

                                                                                                                Still, the album stands as the Jefferson, Georgia, native’s most upbeat. Especially on the nostalgic “Pride,” a bouncing look back at Corey’s high school days, from pep rallies to game day. His children attend the same school he did and together they often attend high-school football games, where the one-time social studies teacher sees friendly faces from his past.

                                                                                                                “I remember sitting up in the stands going, ‘Man, this is so cool.’ I’m so glad we decided to stay here and let my kids be a part of this tradition,” he says. “‘Pride’ summarizes who I am and even how my career has developed.”

                                                                                                                Likewise, album opener “Don’t Mind” coasts along with a New Orleans vibe, full of fiddle and clarinet. A fun, happy song, it sets the tone for the record and pays tribute to the things we all gladly bear when we’re in love. It also epitomizes Corey’s current worldview.

                                                                                                                “I have a 2006 truck that runs great, so I don’t need a new truck. I don’t have much time to get on a big lake, so I don’t need a bass boat. I could have bought some really cool stuff with the money that I spent on this record, but I didn’t, because I’m happy,” he says. “It’s a privilege to be able to do something like this, finance it myself and not have anyone telling me how my music needs to sound.”

                                                                                                                Nonetheless, Corey has hit on the perfect song for today’s country radio: the approachable ballad “Taking the Edge Off.” It’s a road-weary travelogue, like Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page” or Zac Brown Band’s “Colder Weather,” about the loneliness of touring and how people who travel combat such feelings.

                                                                                                                “It captures a certain mood that we go through, especially in the winter. It’s really a grind, it gets cold and lonely, and you’re taking the edge off with a drink,” he admits. “I remember being in Omaha and it was cold as hell. I worked on that tune throughout the day and night there and every time I hear it, I am transported back to that time.”

                                                                                                                Now, however, Corey is focused squarely on the future. As the new album title suggests, he’s ready to make a determined grab at country’s brass ring while the gettin’ is good. And with Keith Stegall and Sugar Hill Records behind him, the gettin’ has never been better. As the perseverant Corey is fond of saying, “There is more than one way to skin a cat in country music.”

                                                                                                                “I always dreamed of being able to make a record like this. I wanted to explore all the possibilities of a song and work with a producer who was among the best and who could teach me,” he says. “What makes me different is that I write all these songs, and I write them from the heart. I’ve lived them.”

                                                                                                                Which is exactly why his fans are willing to go along for the ride and invest so much in an artist who speaks to their way of life. To Corey, While the Gettin’ Is Good is his way of opening up his heart, along with his wallet, and paying them back.

                                                                                                                “I’m going to take the goodwill they’ve given me and continually invest it into making better and better records that reflect who I am and my vision,” he says. “They’ve entrusted me with a lot, so I’m trying to be the best steward I can be.”

                                                                                                                  English Oceans, the 12th release by Athens, Georgia's Drive-By Truckers, is an elegantly balanced and deeply engaged new effort that finds the group refreshed and firing on all cylinders.
                                                                                                                  All but one of the collection's 13 new songs, written by singer-guitarists and co-founding members Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, were recorded during 13 days of sessions in August 2013 with longtime producer David Barbe.
                                                                                                                  Six of the songs were the result of a burst of writing activity by Cooley.
                                                                                                                  "I had time to write," Cooley says. "After we came off the road last time, we decided we were going to let it rest for a while. So I had time to really focus. I kind of had to re-learn how to write, because I didn't write as many songs as I'd wanted on the last couple of records. I was happy with these songs, and thrilled to go in and record so many that I felt real strongly about."
                                                                                                                  Hood notes, "I don't think we've ever had a record where Cooley was as deeply involved in every aspect of the making of it as he was this time. With Cooley's writing, there's almost no precedent for it in our catalog. He came in with this stunning bunch of songs, full of this beautiful imagery."
                                                                                                                  Writing independently, Cooley and Hood penned songs that dovetailed brilliantly with each other. Hood says, "Every song on this record connects with another song. I noticed Cooley's got a line in 'Primer Coat' about 'apron strings,' and I have the exact same image in one of my songs, 'Hanging On.' It goes on and on and on like that on this record, and that's a pretty good sign for things, particularly given how different our temperaments are and our styles of writing are."
                                                                                                                  Cooley and Hood's brace of character-based songs depict a neatly interlocking gallery of relationships, often in dissolution and discord. The last song written and recorded for the album, Hood's rave-up "Pauline Hawkins," was based on a new novel by Willy Vlautin and penned after another of his compositions was scrapped.
                                                                                                                  Hood says, "There was such a balance between Cooley's songs and my songs that taking a song off the record would upset the balance a little bit. I liked the back-and-forth flow, like our shows tend to do. I got an advance copy of Willy's latest book, The Free. I've been a fan of his writing for a while. I read it in about three days. I finished it on Saturday, I wrote the song on Sunday, and then we cut it on Thursday and mastered the record on the following Monday. It sure makes it a better record."
                                                                                                                  DBT's ever-keen political edge can be seen in two songs on the release. Cooley's "Made Up English Oceans" derives from his interest in the career of Lee Atwater, the Republican operative who was active in the Reagan and Bush campaigns of the '80s. "He was the guy that Karl Rove and all of the modern dirty tricksters looked to – he was one of the granddaddies of it all. That song is from his point of view, fictionally of course. It's him making his pitch, telling what he understands about young, Southern men."
                                                                                                                  Hood says "The Part of Him" was inspired by the procession of scandals that plague the political world year after year. "It's about political assholery -- there's someone new playing that role every few months," he says. "As soon as we get rid of one of them, someone comes up and starts playing that part again."
                                                                                                                  Reflecting the renewed high level of collaboration between the band's two principals, English Oceans marks an unprecedented event: the recording of a Hood song, "Til He's Dead or Rises," with Cooley assuming the lead vocal.
                                                                                                                  Cooley says, "I remember Patterson was getting frustrated trying to sing it. He was doing fine, but it seemed like there was something he wanted to do that wasn't coming. I was in the control room thinking, 'I could probably sing this' -- though it wasn't like I was saying, 'Oh, I can sing this a lot better than that.' I was thinking, 'This sounds like something I could sing.' Right after that, he walks into the control room and says, 'You want to trying singing this? It sounds more like you than me.' I said, 'Yeah, I was just thinking that.'"
                                                                                                                  "Grand Canyon," the final song on the album, is an emotionally overwhelming elegy for Craig Lieske, a longtime member of DBT's touring family. The former manager of Athens' 40 Watt Club and a key player in the city's experimental music scene, Lieske died suddenly of a heart attack in January 2013 following the first night of the band's three-night homecoming stand in Athens. English Oceans is dedicated to him.
                                                                                                                  "I probably wrote it in 15 minutes," Hood says. "It wasn't any kind of a conscious thing. It's the most important song of mine on the record. I wrote new songs to go with it. It recalibrated something. It became a totally different record for me than the record I thought we were going to make."
                                                                                                                  The album was recorded with a compact, retooled lineup. Jay Gonzalez, who joined the band in 2008 as keyboardist, stepped into an expanded role by adding guitar to his duties, while bassist Matt Patton was drafted from the Tuscaloosa group The Dexateens. The unit was road-tested during dates in 2013.
                                                                                                                  Cooley says, "This lineup is so direct. It can go from this chainsaw rock 'n' roll to very delicate, pretty-sounding stuff. We wrote a lot of those kinds of songs, and this lineup got all of that well."
                                                                                                                  Hood agrees: "We recorded with a stripped-down lineup that gave things a more primal and immediate feel. It's a more turn-on-a-dime kind of thing, which suits these songs, and us as a band. It's a very tasteful group, and when it needs to be it can be a very big, powerful, over-the-top band, too, and it can go from one to the other seamlessly."
                                                                                                                  Looking at the accomplishments of English Oceans from the perspective of DBT's nearly three-decade history, both Cooley and Hood decline to hedge their bets on the quality of their latest work.
                                                                                                                  "You're always hesitant to say, 'Oh, this is the best record we've ever made,'" Cooley says, "because you always want to. And sometimes you say it, and sometimes you're right, and sometimes you think, 'Well, maybe I jumped the gun on that a little bit, I got excited.' But I think this just might be the best record we've ever made."
                                                                                                                  Hood concurs enthusiastically: "It's my favorite thing that we've ever done. I'm proud of our catalog – we always try to make as good a record as we can make. Sometimes things just work. This time, we made kind of a magical record. I've always felt that Decoration Day was our best record, and this is the first one that I think is a better record than that was. Every piece of the puzzle fit."

                                                                                                                    Steve Poltz is obsessed with the challenge of knowing and understanding the thoughts of each and every person in his audience. He is a lover of life; fascinated by all things large and small. As a road-tested troubadour armed with whimsy, curiosity and a healthy respect for the absurdities of existence, he is unafraid of saying yes, unafraid of letting his relentless, giddy energy fill a room and he is unafraid of letting his streams-of-consciousness take him where he needs to go.

                                                                                                                    His songs are guileless snapshots filtered through the windshield of his brain. He opens his mouth and lets it fall out - a SONG - and it's as shameless and intriguing and profound and wondrous as he is. A mix of high octane performance, singular wit and endlessly entertaining storytelling, Steve is legendary for his improvisational songwriting and timeless, original classics. Oh, and he's a pretty good guitarist too.

                                                                                                                    Truckstop Honeymoon play tough, funny, hi-octane songs about interstates, pinball arcades and true love. Katie Euliss pounds a doghouse bass while Mike West punishes a banjo mercilessly. Together they charm festival crowds and drive roadhouse drinkers to the dance-floor.

                                                                                                                    Since hurricane Katrina washed them out of New Orleans, Truckstop Honeymoon have traveled to the ends of the Earth and back, performing in Australia, Holland, Germany, Britain and throughout the US. Their music tells a story so honest and strange you know they didn’t make it up.

                                                                                                                    Katie learned whore-house piano and bucket bass in the streets of the French Quarter. There she met Mike, a banjo-slinging grifter who sold CDs he claimed cured hangovers and small-mindedness. After a court house wedding, the pair hit the road. They spent their wedding night in a truck stop somewhere between Lafayette and the Atchafalya Swamp. And so Truckstop Honeymoon was born.

                                                                                                                    On August 29 2005, flood waters submerged their home base in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. Truckstop Honeymoon were on tour when the storm hit and so on-tour is where they stayed. Mike and Katie played shows every night, lived out of their van and kept their two daughters entertained in convenience stores across America. But eventually, the road weary family parked their rig as far from any large body of water as they could get: Lawrence, Kansas.

                                                                                                                    Truckstop Honeymoon continue to tour and build a loyal following from Illinois to Norway. They have put out four CDs on Baton Rouge label, Squirrel Records, and a full length documentary film by Nathan King Miller, “I Won’t Let The Angels Take You Away”, will soon be available on DVD.

                                                                                                                    When they are not traveling, Katie and Mike run The 9th Ward Pickin’ Parlor, a small studio where they produce songwriters, bands and eccentrics from all over the United States

                                                                                                                      For more than 30 years, Jerry Joseph has been strapping on a guitar and chasing down truth, understanding and soul with a tenacity and resonant skill that mark him as a hard charging kindred spirit to Joe Strummer, Warren Zevon and Patti Smith. While not a household name or critic's darling, Joseph is the archetypal musician's musician, something resoundingly clear in his live performances, as well as his studio work.

                                                                                                                      Joseph's current foursome, the Jackmormons, is the latest chapter in his long, strange musical journey that flows like glowing quicksilver through the modern psyche, where war and disaster wrestle with hope and faith. The Jackmormons currently feature Joseph (guitar, lead vocals), Steve Drizos (drums, backing vocals), Steve James Wright (bass, backing vocals) and Jeff Crosby (guitar, vocals).

                                                                                                                      Joseph first came to prominence in the mid-1980s with still-beloved cult band Little Women, a reggae-rock proto-jam band that dominated the Rocky Mountain club scene for nearly a decade, and notably helped break jam giants Widespread Panic, who looked up to Joseph and opened for his band before rising to prominence. In fact, Joseph wrote many of Panic's favorite concert staples, including such blazing epics as North, Chainsaw City and Climb to Safety.

                                                                                                                      Steve Drizos and Steve James Wright are also musical lifers working steadily for decades both as sparring partners to Jerry Joseph and elsewhere. Drizos was a member of acoustic Dexter Grove from 1995-2004, a band that performed over 1,500 shows nationally. Drizos produced the live Jackmormons record Badlandia and co-produced Happy Book, as well as performing and recording with such luminaries as Dave Mason and Jim Capaldi (of Traffic), Widespread Panic, The Decemberists, moe., Merle Saunders, Eric McFadden, and dozens of local Portland artists.

                                                                                                                      Steve James Wright has been a complement to Joseph since almost Day One, as the guitarist for Little Women and an outstanding player in his own right. After taking some time off, James graciously and expertly moved over to bass to bring back a slinkier, funkier and more psychedelic mood to the Jackmormons sound. His deep knowledge of the material and his more melodic style now combine to challenge the band to find its finest grooves.

                                                                                                                      The more recent addition of young stud guitar player/singer/songwriter Jeff Crosby (Jeff Crosby & The Refugees) has proved another prescient move by Joseph. A couple of Crosby’s songs from the 2013 album, Silent Conversations, were featured on the hit FX series, Sons of Anarchy. Crosby helps brings out the Americana sensibility of the Jackmormons sound, and his crisp guitar work proves an admirable counterpart to Joseph’s open-minded approach. And a Crosby tune or 2 has become a welcome part of a Jackmormons’ set.

                                                                                                                      Joseph’s influences are many and varied. “Columbia Record Club used to have 20 records for a penny and I filled out form after form, and these boxes of records came to my house and my parents would flip out. Those were my influences,” says Joseph. “I was a kid, so I was as into The Monkees as I was The Beatles. Then, my mother would tell you, it was all over on my 9th or 10th birthday with [Black Sabbath's] Master of Reality and Steppenwolf Live. Then at 12, it was jazz. I saw every jazz act that toured in the 70s…Herbie Hancock and Tower of Power after we went to see Steely Dan. All that and then my older babysitter bought me Exile on Main Street and I saw [Bob Marley and] The Wailers in 1976 and moved to New Zealand. And then The Clash came out and changed my life. But I also loved ZZ Top and all those guitar bands. When I lived in New Zealand, I sat in my window and read Lord of the Rings while listening to prog like Gentle Giant and Camel. Later, I learned a lot from Chris Whitley touring around Europe with him.”

                                                                                                                      Meanwhile, Joseph is steadily extending his global reach, taking advantage of the Internet's ability to find audiences worldwide with tours in Southeast Asia, Europe, Central America, Israel, Lebanon, Ireland, England and elsewhere. Joseph is a hyper-gifted American singer-songwriter finding appreciation beyond his own country's borders, an endlessly insightful rabble-rouser and back street shaman. His creative tendrils extend beyond the Jackmormons into everything from extensive solo work to rangy rock juggernaut Stockholm Syndrome (where Joseph plays with Widespread Panic's Dave Schools, Bay Area guitar marvel Eric McFadden, Gov't Mule's Danny Louis, and percussionist Wally Ingram), and a host of unreleased work.

                                                                                                                      Despite the sort of roadblocks and turns of fortune that usually crush most musicians, Joseph survives, and in fact, thrives in a way that's heartening and stirring, as anyone who has seen a live show can testify.

                                                                                                                      “I'm lucky. I work. I've never had to play in a cover band. I've never had to wear a funny hat, “ says Joseph. “Perhaps because of the lack of traditional success, I've put out about a record a year, plus all the stuff that's never come out, and it's kept me creatively honest. I don't rehash my past. I don't repeat any of my old hits because I don't have any big hits.”

                                                                                                                      NEW KINGSTON formed in 2006 in the basement of their Brooklyn home, when brothers Tahir (keys), Courtney Jr. (drums) & Stephen (guitar) began covering music by the likes of Bob Marley, Earth Wind & Fire, Dennis Brown, Michael Jackson, The Whispers and many more. The three brothers, under the watchful eye of their father (and bassist) Courtney Panton Sr., called themselves New Kingston to appropriately reflect a combination of their Jamaican heritage and their present lives in progressive New York City. The musical styles of both places informed their sound and songwriting.

                                                                                                                      “We used to come home from school and we’d be marched right down to the music room by our dad,” said Stephen.

                                                                                                                      They began performing in other basements and small backyard parties around town, all the while developing their skills and beginning to write their own original music. Talent rises to the top, and soon enough New Kingston started a heavy touring cycle supporting reggae stars such as Rebelution, The Green, SOJA, Matisyahu, Beres Hammond and Collie Buddz, while also securing spots on notable festivals such as the California Roots Festival, Reggae On The River, Summer Jam (Germany), and Uppsala Reggae Festival (Sweden), to name a few. For a while, they joined Collie Buddz to tour as his backing band, which exposed them to international audiences, while continuing their education on what it takes to make a great live show. It also helped them realize they had tons of their own original material and they quickly moved from that role to being a headliner on their own.

                                                                                                                      The band’s background and upbringing are reflected in their approach to the industry, as well: they are truly a U.S. reggae band, part of the movement that has revitalized and evolved the genre domestically, with a focus on digital marketing, heavy national touring, and never sticking to a stale formula for what reggae should sound like. As second generation Jamaican-Americans, they are able to just as easily hold their own with the traditional reggae scene.

                                                                                                                      New Kingston self-released two full-length albums: In The Streets (2010) and Kingston University (2013). The band recently announced the signing to New York-based reggae label Easy Star Records and will release their third studio album Kingston City on January 27, 2015. The record features collaborations with Tribal Seeds, Kimie Miner, France’s Dub Inc., Sister Carol, The Wailing Souls, and the late, great father of dancehall, Sugar Minott. If that guest list doesn’t give you a snapshot of the combination of the old world and new horizons that New Kingston is all about, nothing will.

Peelander-Green was welcomed in July 2008 after Blue left the band.

                                                                                                                              Peelander-Z has appeared at major music festivals including Bonnaroo, CMJ and SXSW, and played with artists such as Buckethead, Electric SIx, Particles, The Vibrators, and Guitar Wolf. Peelander-Z has also been featured on TV programs like VH1's Best Week Ever, Comedy Central's Upright Citizens Brigade, Spike TV's MXC: Most Extreme Challenge, and Anime Network. They also often perform at Anime conventions and festivals all over the US, as well as at Kaiju Big Battel.

Their shows guarantee intense audience participation and chance to exercise with the band. "Do human bowling with us. Do limbo dancing with us. Do karaoke competition with us. Hit our cowbell with us," says Yellow. " Don't be shy, give us your smile! We can beat your stress! See you at our show!"

                                                                                                                                For more than two decades, Lettuce have brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hip-hop-inspired urgency and mastery of beat. Now, on their fourth studio album Crush, drummer Adam Deitch, guitarists Adam Smirnoff and Eric Krasno, bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes, keyboardist Neal Evans, saxophonist Ryan Zoidis, and trumpet players Eric Bloom and Rashawn Ross deepen that sound by channeling the sonic freedom and infectious energy of their incendiary live show. Produced by Lettuce and recorded/mixed by Joel Hamilton at Brooklyn’s Studio G, Crush first came to life on the road, with the band developing new material and testing it out live as they toured. “We’ve all noticed that our music goes into a lot of different directions onstage, and we wanted to capture that in a way that we never really have before,” says Coomes, who names classic psychedelia and ‘90s hip-hop among Lettuce’s key inspirations on Crush. “It’s definitely more wide-open in terms style, but it still stays true to the funk.” As they pushed into new sonic territory throughout the making of Crush, Lettuce drew on a natural musicality that each member has sharpened through an impressive string of outside projects: Deitch also drums and produces for artists like Pretty Lights and Talib Kweli, Krasno’s played with the Allman Brothers Band and on Grammy Award-winning albums from the Tedeschi Trucks Band and Derek Trucks Band, Ross is a full-time member of the Dave Matthews Band, and the most recent of Coomes’s bass credits include Dr. Dre’s Compton. “We’re all doing such eclectic things, and we all absorb those new experiences and feed them back into our own music,” notes Krasno. “Our palette just keeps growing and growing.” The follow-up to 2012’s Fly, Crush finds Lettuce brilliantly infusing their psychedelic and hip-hop sensibilities into bass-heavy funk. With its spidery guitar work and hypnotic beats, “Phyllis” is a delicately sprawling epic that embodies what Deitch refers to as “a chill-hop vibe that’s kind of the flip-side of all that powerful uptempo funk that people might expect from us.” On “Get Greasy,” Lettuce give a nod to the groove-fueled EDM subgenre known as future funk, building off its highly danceable rhythm with a blissfully loose and horn-laced arrangement. And on “He Made a Woman Out of Me,” guest vocalist Alecia Chakour lends her bluesy growl to a scorching take on Bobbie Gentry’s 1970 country-soul classic. Whether paying homage to Led Zeppelin on the fiery and guitar-driven “Silverdome” or delivering a deeply riveting and richly textured hip-hop medley with “Oresteia,” Lettuce maneuver through Crush’s kaleidoscopic sound with sophisticated ease and powerful synergy. “More so than any of the records we’ve done before, this album is very much about the improvised grooves and improvised solos,” says Krasno. “Instead of going at it like, ‘Here’s a melody, now here’s a guitar solo, here’s another melody, here’s a sax solo,’ everyone’s leaning on each other in a way that’s completely unspoken. It’s all of us moving as one unit and creating this new sound together.”

                                                                                                                                According to Lettuce, that sense of unity and togetherness has much to do with a camaraderie that’s only intensified over the lifespan of the band. Formed in 1992, when several band members attended a summer program at Boston’s Berklee College of Music as teenagers, Lettuce was founded on a shared love of legendary funk artists like Earth, Wind & Fire and Tower of Power. After returning to Berklee as undergrads in 1994, Lettuce started playing in local clubs and steadily built up a following that soon extended to cities across the country and then throughout the world. Releasing their studio debut Outta Here in 2002 and its follow-up album Rage! in 2009, the band dedicated the coming years to balancing their frequent touring with involvement in a host of other musical endeavors (including Evans and Krasno’s role as founding members of acclaimed soul/jazz trio Soulive). In recent years, Lettuce have watched their fanbase expand as they’ve hit bigger and bigger stages and earned their name as a can’t-miss festival act. And in making Crush, the band had no trouble harnessing the spirit of their explosive live show. “Some of these shows we’ve played over the past couple years have been so amazing, it’s like you go home a different person,” says Coomes. “I’m sure remembering those moments in our minds and our hearts helped bring out something special when we were recording these new songs.” So while Crush offers everything from all-out party jams to headphone-ready journeys into space funk, each track was born from an unabashed joy and love of live performance. “That energy we get when it’s prime time and we’re about to go onstage and we’re just excited beyond belief—that all came out on this new album,” says Deitch. “There’s a feeling that the band is rising, and it’s a really beautiful thing.”

                                                                                                                                  If Lee Scratch Perry and Deadmau5 died, went to heaven, and recorded an album with Bradley Nowell and Jerry Garcia, they’d end up with something like Jon Wayne and The Pain’s new full length album “Surrender”. In addition to the Minneapolis trio’s signature sound of roots infused Reggae Rock, their latest release adds a bold fusion of Jam and EDM into the fold.

                                                                                                                                  The trio’s previous album “Follow Through” for the most part only teases with a few subtle, dark electronic elements but stays true to the roots infused Reggae Rock sound that could be described as an ideal poolside soundtrack. Until the release of “Surrender”, their sometimes sinister combination of organic drums and guitar with electronic bass and synths could only be heard if fans could catch the band’s live act in clubs and festivals around the U.S. or sift through bootleg uploads on Youtube. Their third full length album is full of electronic instrumentals that build from entrasic dub loops (wait for the drop) then explode into high energy party anthems with intense vocals and powerful acoustic drums.

                                                                                                                                  Pushing boundaries further, Jon Wayne and The Pain inject Roots, Jam, and Ska into the mix with sounds that band members Jon, Chuckie, and Teeto have grown to love while playing alongside some of the most influential musicians in the festival scene. Complete with a sanctioned Grateful Dead cover and a festie-fan shout out track “Festival Friends”, JWP pays tribute to the Jam scene in a big way. Keeping in tune with the sound that made fans rush to see Jon Wayne and The Pain since the band’s early days, heartfelt Reggae-Rock tunes are still a staple in the diverse collection of songs that make up “Surrender”

                                                                                                                                  Barreling through the gates of country music, HELLBOUND GLORY, is justifying rightful ownership to the band’s declarative namesake. In defining their sound, distilled of equal parts melody and bar-room-thump, this Reno, NV based band is packing the house to a growing legion of fans coast to coast. Front man and songwriter, Leroy Virgil, explains; “We just really dig the challenge of a new audience. We’ll walk into a new room full of folks that haven’t heard our music, play a 4 or 5 hour night, and drive away with more people that consider themselves fans. I’m not a flashy guy but I like showing off.”

                                                                                                                                  The bands formation in 2008 was a graduation of sorts for Virgil who originally hails from Aberdeen, WA. Relocating to Reno in 2002, the singer jumped head-long into the nightlife of the Biggest Little City In The World. This ‘nightlife’ had an immediate impact on what would become HELLBOUND GLORY’S material. Virgil explains Reno’s influence, “I grew up in a hick-town by a lot of peoples standards. Reno is just a hick-town with taller buildings and brighter lights. Playing Reno is like playing a 24 hour dive bar. No matter where I play, I’m never too far from home.”

                                                                                                                                  Virgil’s songwriting consistently tests the boundaries of conventional country music’s lyrical playing field. When asked to describe the band’s signature sound, Virgil proclaims, “Country music was a big influence on the rock music I wrote when I was younger and still in Aberdeen. That same rock music echoes a bit in my country western music today. We’re really not afraid to piss off any of either genre’s purists. We’re just out there being ourselves!” In fact, HELLBOUND GLORY songs resound with equal parts wit and humor. An unabbreviated and honest statement of the world we live in today.

                                                                                                                                  Forged through a relentless touring schedule that carries the band cross-country on a regular basis; HELLBOUND GLORY are conquering new stomping ground on the strength of three full length releases; “Scumbag Country (2008),” “Old Highs & New Lows (2010),” and “Damaged Goods (2011).”

                                                                                                                                  HELLBOUND GLORY can count some of music’s most prolific and accomplished artists today among their growing number of supporters. Virgil continues “It’s pretty cool that we can count these folks as fans of our music, but I’ve got to be my own fan first and foremost.”

                                                                                                                                  This is HELLBOUND GLORY, music as honest and reflective in a frantic urban metropolis as it is on a lost and desolate byway.

                                                                                                                                  The band is currently in the studio recording a follow-up to the highly acclaimed “Damaged Goods.”

                                                                                                                                  Cherub is a sexy, avante garde, electro-pop duo that is the dance love-child of 80’s funk, and pop-music from the future. The members of Cherub, Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber, share a love for honest original music and vibrant live performance, with a common goal to share a little bit of sex, a little bit of drugs, and a whole lot of love with people across the globe. Cherub’s music is a fresh electrified take on risqué pop music that brings to mind timeless artists like Prince, Zapp and Roger, and more contemporary Justin Timberlake. With a live show that is bouncing with energy, Cherub dances their way into the hearts of audiences from the first falsetto hook, until the very last delay filters out.
                                                                                                                                  After completing studio work for Cherub’s first release, Man of the Hour, singer/songwriter Jordan Kelley joined forces with fellow producer/performer, Jason Huber, to polish Cherub’s live electro act and begin performing throughout the Southeast. Both Jordan and Jason have received recognition as producers and live musicians, previously performing as Schtompa and I.V.Y. League alongside renown acts, such as EOTO, Boombox, Count Bass D, GZA of Wu Tang Clan, Two Fresh, and many more. Since Cherub’s formation in late 2010, the band has shared the stage with highly regarded acts like Pretty Lights, Alex B, Big Gigantic, Bag Raiders, Miami Horror, and many others. The duo is looking forward to a number of high profile live dates throughout the fall of 2011, including dates in Mexico with YACHT and Nortec Collective, and a Halloween show supporting Pretty Lights in the band’s hometown, Nashville, TN.
                                                                                                                                  Since the recording of Man of the Hour, Cherub has returned to the studio as a dynamic electro-pop production duo, to lay down tracks for their second collection of recorded material. This new batch of Cherub songs brings a fresh uptempo electro feel to the familiar pop sensibilities for which fans know and love Cherub. Jordan Kelley’s clever songcraft, slick production, and smooth falsetto, are complimented perfectly by Jason Huber’s on-stage production, tube-driven guitar work, and exciting vocal harmonies.
                                                                                                                                  The Man of the Hour brings a new light to electro-pop music. The catchy hooks, tasteful synthwork, and dance-demanding rhythms work together with honest lyrics delivering a unique twist on accessible pop rock music. The Man of the Hour provides a musical package that keeps listeners bouncing around a club, and singing along the entire ride home. Drawing instant comparisons to contemporary favorites like Chromeo, Bag Raiders, The Dream, and MGMT, Cherub’s Man of the Hour brings new definition to live music and electronic music alike.
                                                                                                                                  Jordan Kelley wants to “focus on making good music that is personally relevant, rather that pay attention to the conventions of any particular genre. That’s what made the Man of the Hour.” Cherub’s live performance of Man of the Hour captivates audiences with swooping vocals, soaring guitars and talkbox, and ethereal harmonies, from the drop of the first beat, until Jordan and Jason dance their way off stage.
                                                                                                                                  The newer unreleased Cherub material brings a funky vintage vibe to a new-school electronic sound, with soulful stacks of falsetto harmonies, and a layered cake of talkbox and vocoders, reminiscent of Prince, or Zapp and Roger. These songs display Cherub’s versatility in songwriting and dance music production, ranging from grooving heartfelt ballads, to risqué club bangers that blur conventional genre barriers. Playful guitar licks and lush synthesizer textures dance around in the mix, as listeners are treated to sing-a-long hook after hook the entire way through the tunes. It’s fun. The Nashville Scene claims Cherub as their “nu favorite nu disco duo.”
                                                                                                                                  “Instead of fearing the changes seen in music performance, with technology being so readily incorporated into everyday life, Cherub looks to embrace everything that is fresh and exciting, and we seek to pioneer a new school of music composition, production, and performance… Cheers to the future!” – Jason Huber

                                                                                                                                          Hailing from Santa Barbara, California, Rebelution has developed into the front runner for grassroots, independent and touring driven music groups representing the Cali-Reggae scene. Originally formed in 2004, members Eric Rachmany (vocals / guitar,) Rory Carey (keyboards,) Wesley Finley (drums,) and Marley D. Williams (bass) met in college, while residing in Isla Vista, a popular beachside community in Santa Barbara. It was there that the seeds to Rebelution’s future would be planted-- and would instill their kick back, “worry free” vibes, catchy refrain, and optimistic, inspiring, and engaging music that would leave their listeners with the sense that they have the power to make this world a better place.

                                                                                                                                          Throughout 2004-05, Rebelution began to build momentum through consistently playing local shows and by independently releasing an EP. Before they knew it, they were one of the biggest drawing bands, not just in the reggae genre, but in the entire area. “It definitely went to the next level when we literally had thousands of people watching us perform in Isla Vista on Friday nights,” shares Rachmany. The band’s upbeat, highly danceable grooves were charting a direct course for bigger and better things.

                                                                                                                                          Rebelution released their first full-length album “Courage to Grow” in June 2007, which would become the breakthrough album for the band. The album was praised for its crafty melodies, socially-conscious lyrics, and savvy musicianship. Rebelution quickly became known for sticking strongly to the roots of vintage reggae sound, all while appealing not only to reggae listeners, but also to music fans of all genres.

                                                                                                                                          “Courage to Grow” went on to garner mass downloads and radio play on monster stations such as San Francisco’s Live 105 where their single “Safe and Sound” was played on heavy rotation, with spins on San Diego’s 91X, and Los Angels’ KROQ. The album hit an all time high when it was selected as iTunes Editor’s Choice for Best Reggae Album of 2007. In addition, “Courage to Grow” has been in the top 10 iTunes Reggae album sales since its release two years ago. It remained in the Billboard Top Reggae Album Chart for 36 weeks, and peaked at 4.

                                                                                                                                          Now, two years since their last album, Rebelution is ready to give their fans their long-awaited, sophomore full-length album “Bright Side of Life” on August 4, 2009. Recorded in their home town of Santa Barbara at Santa Barbara Sound Design, entering the same studio the day after Depeche Mode completed their sessions for Sounds Of The Universe. “Bright Side of Life” features 12 new signature tracks blending the band’s cohesive mix of reggae, rock, and hip-hop influences in a calliope awash of front man Eric Rachmany’s Santana-esque guitar flurries, Marley D. Williams’ solid and attacking bass lines, the psychedelic and tasteful piano, keyboard and Hammond b-3 stylist of Rory Carey, and the jazz rock fusion of Wesley Finley’s finesse drumming and percussion.

                                                                                                                                          Of the new album, Rebelution shares, “After the positive response from fans and critics for ‘Courage to Grow’ and touring in support of it for the last few years, we are glad to finally reveal our new material to the fans who have waited so patiently. We’ve played many of the new songs live, but the recorded versions will have that ‘studio magic’ from all the time we’ve put into them.” The band notes that their second album will show their growth in maturity musically, with a more polished sound with flares of new styles that fans and future fans have yet to hear. “Bright Side of Life” also has an overall theme of encouragement. The band shares, “Though it was important for all of us in the band to be motivated to continue with what we do best, which is making music, we feel people in the world could use some encouragement in this time to stay motivated as well, which is what we drew a lot of inspiration for this album.”

                                                                                                                                          The release of “Bright Side of Life” marks the first release under Rebelution’s newly founded record label 87 Music, in association with Controlled Substance Sound Labs, the California based music collective, which is also home to artists Slightly Stoopid and Pepper, and their respective artist imprints.
