One of the greatest harmonica players in rock, John Popper formed his band, Blues Traveler, along with his high school friends Bobby Sheehan (bass), Chan Kinchla (guitar) and Brendan Hill (drums), in the late 80s, in New York City. They released their eponymous debut album in 1990 and hit the charts with 1994’s “Four”. Meanwhile, Popper started to appear as a cameo in several films: the Farrelly Brothers’ Kingpin (1996) (which included a Blues Traveler performance at the end), Howard Stern‘s Private Parts (1997) and Blues Brothers 2000 (1998). The year 2000 was a tragic one for the band. Popper had to canceled some tour dates due to some hard pain in his chest. Then, later that year, bassist Bobby Sheehan died of a heroin overdose. That same year marked Popper first actual role in movies. He acted in the indie film, Just for the Time Being (2000), with supermodel Eva Herzigova. He also released his first solo album in 2000, “Zygote”. After all that, he went through a gastric surgery to reduce his weight and Blues Traveler rejoined forces with two new members, and released the album “Bridge”, a new beginning for the band.

Melodime’s music merges a slight country twang with rock and roll, successfully blending stunning piano melodies with catchy guitar riffs and sing-along choruses.

Melodime, featuring Brad Rhodes (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Sammy Duis (piano, organ, bass), Tyler Duis (drums), and Jon Wiley (guitar, mandolin, dobro, bg vocals), has performed 125+ shows annually throughout the continental United States, sharing the stage with such well-known acts as  Sam Hunt, Jonny Lang, A Thousand Horses, and Sister Hazel. The band has also left its mark internationally with performances in Mexico, Canada, and Europe, all while founding and running a charity, ‘Now I Play Along Too,’ which provides musical instruments and lessons to underprivileged children in the DC area, Florida and Haiti. The band is quickly becoming a fan-favorite in the festival scene, playing four consecutive Rock Boat cruises, as well as Musikfest, Herndon Festival and other events. Around their hometown of Northern Virginia, the group has performed at such popular venues as The Hamilton, The State Theatre, and 9:30 Club.

Melodime’s latest single, “Little Thing Called Love,” has received a great response from both fans and critics alike. The Boot describe the track as “catchy, lyrically strong – and perfect to listen to with the windows down during the summertime months,” while Tune Collective describes the track as a “fun song bursting with vibrant uplifting energy.” Kings of A&R featured the band as a buzzing act, and The Washington Post noted “It doesn’t pay for those who want to say ‘I saw them way back when’ to procrastinate.”  Melodime’s previous albums were recorded with platinum-selling producers, including Where the Sinners & the Saints Collide with Rick Beato  (Parmalee, NeedToBreathe), and 3 Reasons For Fighting with Jim Ebert (Butch Walker, Cowboy Mouth).

No matter the form, when it comes to art, there are a number of different tacks to take. Some artists continually push their work across new horizons. Neil Young, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Joni Mitchell come to mind, in that regard. Others — Claude Monet, Jason Isbell, and Bonnie Raitt, among them — stand a bit more still in order to continually refine the capturing of their vision. Singer/songwriter Peter Bradley Adams falls into the latter category of perfectionists chasing their own perfection. With A Face Like Mine, he may well have caught it.  

There’s a confidence, a completeness in the song cycle that listeners have gleaned throughout Adams’ illustrious career, but A Face Like Mine, his sixth solo effort, brings it all into sharp focus. As Adams sees it, “On the long plod of finding my voice as a singer and a writer, the singing has slowly developed from the sound of a scared guy to someone who believes what he’s saying and the writing, I hope, has become less rigid — both in the lyrics and the phrasing.”

Less rigid, indeed. Adams’ brand of Americana nestles his often delicate, always heartfelt voice in the warm embrace of gentle guitar, tasteful dobro, subtle banjo, supportive bass, and unhurried percussion. The result is a sonic scape that, in turn, wraps itself around the listener like a soft blanket on a cold day. With A Face Like Mine, Adams further refines the simple musical sophistication that has become his trademark. 

Throughout the self-produced set, Adams tells tales of love and loss, homes and hearts. The territory he mines is a deliberate mix of fact and fantasy. “I feel like I’m, firstly, a storyteller, but it’s inevitable that my own stuff gets in there deep. And it’s funny how, sometimes, I don’t realize it until the song is done,” he offers. “At the same time, there are times where I take very directly from an experience or a relationship, but I try to be very careful when that happens. I don’t want to ever sound like a journal entry.”

Regardless of the details, there’s always a philosophical bent that is often more under than on the surface, firmly grounding Adams’ songs even as they stretch outward. By his own admission, Adams is a seeker who spends considerable time wrestling with matters of faith, though he’s the first to admit he doesn’t have any real answers. “I honestly don’t know what the hell I’m doing… nor do I have the language for any of this stuff,” he says with a laugh. “But there is a constant tug on me in that direction and, the older I get, the more present it becomes. Music can often be the most direct way to step into that river.”

That seeker’s heart is the tie that so often binds these songs together. Whether the search for place and purpose is of a spiritual or geographical nature, few writers capture the journey as thoughtfully as Adams. An Alabama native, Adams says he feels most comfortable in motion and doesn’t have a strong sense of being Southern, even though his music is rooted in that world in so many ways. The first verse of the album’s mesmerizing lead track, “Good Man,” exemplifies his plight: “This old house is falling down. Every step I take makes a hollow sound. Should I walk away? Should I push on through? What in the world can a good man do?”

Even as Adams goes on to sing of “laughing eyes with a touch of grey” and walking “a mile across the kitchen floor” in order to set various scenes, he leaves room for the listener to crawl inside his stories and make them their own. Striking that balance is the songwriter’s eternal struggle, but one Adams seems to have mastered after years of toiling on his own and collaborating with co-writers like Kim Richey, Caitlin Canty, and Todd Lombardo.

“I don’t think I’m very good at co-writing because my process seems so weird and long and tedious to me,” Adams confides. “It’s hard to allow someone into that space, but there a few folks where our sensibilities are aligned and we’re not just trying to bang out a song in a day. I want to feel as close to the songs I co-write as the ones I write alone. Writers like Kim Richey have such an economy and depth to the ideas that come out of their mouths and hands — there’s wisdom there. I want to be more like that.”

In addition to this release, Adams is currently putting his classical composition studies to work on a piece for violin and piano — an aspect of his craft and education that got set aside somewhere along the way to now. “I’ve wondered a lot why I spent all that time studying music in school and how my composer hat fits in with or hinders my songwriting,” he says. “Some of it was definitely useless to me, then and now. But some of it has left its mark on how I listen, and how I think of arranging songs, and how I communicate with players who are playing on them. Also, writing in such an extremely simple and constrained musical language makes all your choices much more delicate, so I spend a lot of time crafting even the simplest melody.”

A Face Like Mine‘s songs were composed all over the world, from Alabama to India, and they dig into topics are disparate as the desperation of addiction (“Lorraine”), the grappling of self-image (“Who Else Could I Be”), the vitriol of politics (“We Are”), and the genetics of suffering (“A Face Like Mine”). “We Are” and “Who Else Could I Be” were originally written for a dance piece that Gina Patterson choreographed for the San Angelo Civic Ballet. Even so, Adams made sure the songs could stand alone in their own world no matter what else was swirling around them — confidence and completeness in action.

As a work of musical art, A Face Like Mine fulfills the promise of Peter Bradley Adams. And rarely has an artist’s standing still sounded so divine.

Dala seem bound for a loftier place where substance stands equal to style.”
– The Irish Times

Juno nominees and winners of the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine of Dala write and sing in harmony best described as angelic. These two best friends met in their high school music class in 2002; they have since released five albums and toured extensively across North America. Darlings of the Canadian music scene, Dala are now poised to bring their fresh brand of acoustic pop music to the world.

Drawing upon influences like The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Dala write songs that are both catchy and insightful. Amanda’s ethereal soprano voice blends seamlessly with Sheila’s velvety alto, creating the lush harmonies that have become their trademark.

“There’s nothing pretentious about Dala’s music; it’s stripped down and laid bare. That’s not to say it is without polish – far from it. Sheila Carabine and Amanda Walther have worked hard to exploit every facet of their extraordinary musical blend, and it would be just as at home in a 1960s coffeehouse as it is now on the contemporary concert stage”.
-Andrew Craig, Host of CBC “Canada Live”

The sheer joy with which they perform is infectious, turning first-time listeners into instant fans. Dala are equally entertaining between songs, telling funny and down to earth stories that make every show unique. Dala have opened for artists such as Tom Cochrane, Stuart McLean of the CBC’s Vinyl Café, Richie Havens and Arlo Guthrie. No strangers to the festival scene, they have also performed at The New Orleans Jazz Festival, The Edmonton Folk Festival, California’s Strawberry Festival and Mariposa. In 2009, they were the only Canadian act invited to play at the 50th Anniversary of the Newport Folk Festival.

Dala’s album “Everyone Is Someone” was released in 2009 to critical acclaim. It earned them their fifth Canadian Folk Music Award nomination, a Toronto Independent Music Award for Best Folk Group, and it was touted by The Irish Post as the Album of the Year. The song “Horses” was nominated by National Public Radio in the US as one of the “Top Ten folk songs of 2009”.

“Dala can sing! What beautiful flights of melody and harmony, reminiscent of the Everly Brothers, the Louvin Brothers, Emmylou Harris and associates; though Dala can trade a melody line and leave one wondering who is taking the lead and simply leave one behind when the harmonies kick in.”
-Peterborough Examiner

In the summer of 2010, Dala’s PBS special “Girls From The North Country” was broadcast across North America. This concert features Dala’s own songs weaved around classics by Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot. The live cd and dvd for “Girls From The North Country” earned Dala the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for “Vocal Group of the Year”.

The live album was nominated for a 2011 Juno Award in the category “Roots and Traditional Album of the Year: Group”.

Dala’s latest album “Best Day” was released in June of 2012. It was nominated for three Canadian Folk Music Awards: English Songwriter of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year and Producer of the Year”

Bruce In The USA is much more than just another tribute…
This high-energy musical experience is a note-perfect and visually accurate recreation of a Bruce Springsteen & The E St. Band show.

Matt Ryan, from the World Famous “Legends In Concert” cast, began playing the Springsteen character in 2000, in Legends “full scale” Las Vegas show. The great success in the famous Las Vegas show brought him to performances across the world, eventually evolving his character into the Bruce In The USA show.

The Bruce In The USA Band consists of seasoned world class professional musicians. The show has hosted musicians from such acts/bands as Queen/Paul Rogers, Meatloaf, Blue Oyster Cult, Hall and Oats, Joe Cocker, The Ojays, Aretha Franklin, David Cassidy, The Temptations, Slash… and so many more.This high end, powerhouse, band has taken this genre of performance art to a whole new level, making it the World’s #1 Tribute to the E Street Band’s musical legacy.

To millions of diehard fans around the world, it’s Springsteen’s marathon, party-like performances that have elevated him to hero status. Bruce’s legendary concerts (in the largest arenas) sell-out within hours of their announced sale.

Donavon Frankenreiter’s new album, “The Heart,” officially marks the start of the singer-songwriter’s second decade as a solo recording artist. It’s been over ten years since the release of his self-titled debut, and in that time he has grown, not only as a musician, but also as a man. He’s raising a family and nurturing two creative careers-one onstage, one in the waves-but on top of all that, he’s still learning what makes him tick. And so, naturally, he named his album after his ticker.

Midwest artists Willy Porter and Carmen Nickerson are an exciting addition to the indie-duo scene. With their liquid harmonies and unassailable, playful performance chemistry, these two solo artists have joined their unique talents to create the unforgettable sound of Porter Nickerson.

 

Porter has been turning first time listeners into die-hard fans for more than two decades. His blistering guitar playing and rich songwriting provides the perfect architecture to support Nickerson’s lush vocals, complimenting and elevating Porter’s songs to make them feel both fresh and timeless. The pair first collaborated on the 2013 EP Cheeseburgers and Gasoline and again on Porter’s 2015 record Human Kindness. In 2016 the duo performed as the featured musical guests on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion.

 

Porter Nickerson are excited to bring listeners the new disc, Bonfire to Ash, their first album of original co-writes produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Ben Wisch (Marc Cohn, Jonatha Brooke).

 

Bonfire to Ash charts experiences that bridge the intimate with the universal. From the thirsty shoots of new love (“Old Red Barn”), to the urgency to save love from skidding out of reach forever (“Loving On Her Mind”), and again in the anthemic elegy to relationships and legacies forged in America’s heartland on the song “Living Proof.” Porter and Nickerson perfect a unique dialogue through the songs on this record that carries over into their unassailable stage chemistry.

 

Together these highly accomplished artists take audiences on a singular musical ride full of heart, grit, energy, and fun that showcases the best of what live music has to offer.

 

 

Press Quotes:

 

Ash burns brightest when Porter and Nickerson share their voices and different perspectives of a lonely relationship on “Echo of Love.”” -Piet Levy, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

 

“He’s an amazing guitar player, singer and songwriter. (Carmen Nickerson) produces a very smooth, accurate harmonic blend with him. Did I say I liked this? I REALLY do.” –Al Kooper, music legend/producer on Cheeseburgers and Gasoline

 

“Willy is an entertaining performer, an excellent guitarist, and someone who obviously loves what he does.” –No Depression

Before

long, family, friends and neighbors started to notice, and at 9 years old, coaxed by the promise

of free quesadillas, he was singing for crowds at a local restaurant.

And in 2007, when the

then-16-year-old (now 26), appeared on

American Idol , the world started noticing. Receiving 44

percent of nearly 100 million votes, the shy, fresh-faced vocal prodigy was runner-up on the hit

show’s seventh season, finishing behind David Cook.

“I didn’t really want to pursue fame and stardom,” Archuleta, a devout Mormon, recalls. “But I

felt like it was something I needed to do to fulfill one of the assignments I’d been given in my

life.”

A record deal with Sony/Jive Records, arena tours, a No. 2 single (“Crush”) on the

Billboard Hot

100, acclaim from the likes Bruce Springsteen, Kelly Clarkson and Rihanna, and international

fame followed. But even after running the gamut from Top 40 pop to holiday music on six

studio albums and 21 singles, released over the past decade, including a two-year break from

music to embark on life-changing missionary work in Chile for The Church of Jesus Christ of

Latter-Day Saints, the TV personality, bestselling author and former

Star Search Junior Vocal

Champion and one of

American Idol ’s youngest breakout wunderkinds was still just finding his

voice.

“I think

American Idol , the whole process, from the momentum on afterwards, I never took

time to slow down and think about who I was,” the singer says. “People wanted me to work in

an adult world without growing up.

… When I went on my mission, it was the first time that I

took time to say, ‘Who am I? What do I want?’

“When I got back, I started doing music again, and that’s when I started working on this

project.”

He’s talking about a series of three four-song EPs that, due out over the course of this year (and

later as a full-length LP with additional songs), starting with the May 19

th release of Orion ,

combine to make a heartfelt artistic statement. Unburdened by the pressures and

focus-group-think of industry handlers, yet set to pop tones sure to pleasantly surprise old fans

and attract new followers to his already robust global fan base, it’s the first album the singer’s

co-written and recorded as an adult.

“The music is all about saying, ‘Wait a second, why am I doing this in the first place?’ ”

Archuleta says, explaining where his head was at when he relocated to Nashville to start writing

songs with Music City luminaries like Jeremy Bose, Trent Dabbs, Katie Herzig, producer Jamie

Kenney and others.

“It was therapeutic working with them,” Archuleta recalls. “I wrote these stories [my career so

far].

… That was a great experience and I learned a ton, and now I’m here and I’m like, ‘Wow! I

get to create music, but this time I have my own reason to do it.”

“I connect to my songs more now than I ever have,” he goes on to say. “Before, my team had

goals to fulfill; they didn’t really care about my story, they were just like, ‘Make sure you have

enough love songs that we can release, because that’s what people want to buy.’ I’ve never

been about romance and breakups and high school love and all that. I’ve always been about

life, and self-introspection.”

“I think I’ll take a second change,” Archuleta sings with a familiar bell-clear powerhouse croon

on lead-off single “Numb,” an airy pop tune with a refreshing calypso feel that shows some of

the Utah-by-way-of-Miami native’s Latin roots. The track premiered via

Billboard last

November.

“This is like a new beginning,” Archuleta explains excitedly, saying he’s never felt so intrinsically

fulfilled and electrified by his own music. “It’s not just taking another chance with music, it’s

taking another chance on myself.

… I need to be who I am or else I’ll go numb again.”

Like with “Numb,” the theme of the anthemic “Invincible” turns the phrase its title suggests.

“[It’s] about not having to be invincible,” Archuleta says. “I’ve felt too many times that I need to

be perfect, I need to be invincible, I can’t show any weakness. But really, that’s what creates

the battle with myself.

… [Then I have to tell myself], ‘It’s OK, you can let go. Let the armor

down. Put the sword away.’ ”

That idea carries on through

Orion ’s “Up All Night.” It’s a dance-pop gem Archuleta wrote about

a rural Tennessee fishing trip he took with a family he befriended. Coming during a rough patch

he was having in Nashville, the trip gave the singer some much-needed perspective at a time

when he was imposing a paralyzing amount of pressure on himself to prove himself.

“They just cared about each other,” Archuleta says of the family. “Whoever I was, they just

loved me and accepted me, and made me feel like a was a part of the family.

… I felt whole

again, I feel rejuvenated, and I went home and I couldn’t sleep that night. And all that

happened was I went fishing with this family. I was like, ‘I have to get this feeling out of me.’ So

I went over to the keyboard and [“Up All Night”] is what came out.”

“Say Me,” a string-section-boasting ballad co-written with Bose and Dabbs, is another

rumination on the singer’s battle for self-discovery. “I need you to say me,” the lyric goes.

“That can be interpreted as a love song,” Archuleta admits. “I need you to say you, basically —

believe in yourself.

… There’s a difference between being prideful and cocky and believing in

yourself.”

After a decade under the discerning eyes of

American Idol judges, TV viewers, record label

know-it-alls and music critics trying to shape and define his identity, Archuleta has discovered

he’s the only one who can find himself, and, with confidence winning out over self-doubt, that’s

what he’s done on

Orion .

“These songs are about the struggle of finding your own voice and how hard it can be

sometimes to believe in yourself.

… I’m David. I’m the kid who always sat in his backyard,

alone, singing to the cats. I don’t have to be cool, I just have to be David.”

With a musical career spanning more than thirty-five years, guitarist, sonic innovator, and two time Grammy nominee Tim Reynolds is known for his masterful command of melody and timing and for his uncanny ability to improvise on any instrument he touches.  Having explored most musical styles, from rock, jazz and blues to classical and reggae, Reynolds’ wide-ranging musical versatility is evident each time he picks up his electric or acoustic guitar.  Technically brilliant, yet emotionally honest, Reynolds’ music is inspired and authentic.

It was in the mid 1980s in Charlottesville, VA, when Reynolds founded his breakthrough electric power trio, TR3 (Tim Reynolds Trio), known for their fusion of funk, rock, and jazz.  He toured with TR3 during the 1980s and 1990s, using a rotating cast of musicians.  It was at this time he befriended Dave Matthews and their ongoing musical collaboration began.  Tim eventually decided to relocate to Santa Fe, NM, and pursue a solo career.  His musical progression continued throughout his many years on the road as a solo guitar wizard, playing for packed houses and to crowds who quickly determined that Reynolds is one of the most talented and thoughtful musicians on the circuit today.

After a number of years in New Mexico, Reynolds relocated to the Outer Banks of North Carolina in 2007.  After a chance meeting with two talented musicians, bass player Mick Vaughn and drummer Dan Martier, a few rehearsals later and several stealth appearances throughout North Carolina, Reynolds decided to resurrect the electric TR3 and they’ve been touring ever since.  TR3 released their first double live CD, “From SPACE and Beyond” in June 2011.  In 2009, their first studio CD “Radiance” was nominated for Home Grown Music Network’s Album of the Year.   Electric, funky, operatic, edgy…their show is a mix of updated Reynolds’ classics to wild covers of everything from James Brown, Led Zeppelin, King Crimson and Focus to TR3’s ever-evolving catalogue of new material.

With a musical career spanning more than thirty-five years, guitarist, sonic innovator, and two time Grammy nominee Tim Reynolds is known for his masterful command of melody and timing and for his uncanny ability to improvise on any instrument he touches.  Having explored most musical styles, from rock, jazz and blues to classical and reggae, Reynolds’ wide-ranging musical versatility is evident each time he picks up his electric or acoustic guitar.  Technically brilliant, yet emotionally honest, Reynolds’ music is inspired and authentic.

It was in the mid 1980s in Charlottesville, VA, when Reynolds founded his breakthrough electric power trio, TR3 (Tim Reynolds Trio), known for their fusion of funk, rock, and jazz.  He toured with TR3 during the 1980s and 1990s, using a rotating cast of musicians.  It was at this time he befriended Dave Matthews and their ongoing musical collaboration began.  Tim eventually decided to relocate to Santa Fe, NM, and pursue a solo career.  His musical progression continued throughout his many years on the road as a solo guitar wizard, playing for packed houses and to crowds who quickly determined that Reynolds is one of the most talented and thoughtful musicians on the circuit today.

After a number of years in New Mexico, Reynolds relocated to the Outer Banks of North Carolina in 2007.  After a chance meeting with two talented musicians, bass player Mick Vaughn and drummer Dan Martier, a few rehearsals later and several stealth appearances throughout North Carolina, Reynolds decided to resurrect the electric TR3 and they’ve been touring ever since.  TR3 released their first double live CD, “From SPACE and Beyond” in June 2011.  In 2009, their first studio CD “Radiance” was nominated for Home Grown Music Network’s Album of the Year.   Electric, funky, operatic, edgy…their show is a mix of updated Reynolds’ classics to wild covers of everything from James Brown, Led Zeppelin, King Crimson and Focus to TR3’s ever-evolving catalogue of new material.

The duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson are a force to be reckoned with in the modern day Country music landscape. International Country music stars, Thompson Square has topped the radio charts across the Unites States, Canada and Australia with #1 hits “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” “If I Didn’t Have You” and “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About,” respectively.

After taking its headlining “Just Feels Good Tour” across the U.S., Asia and Australia in 2014, Thompson Square took time off to collaborate in the studio with both Dann Huff and celebrated producer Mickey Jack Cones (Dustin Lynch/ Joe Nichols) to work on the Stoney Creek Records duo’s upcoming third album.

The result is a barefaced, emotionally charged and gutsy sound from the married duo that was honored as both the ACM and CMA “Vocal Duo of the Year” in 2012. Thompson Square continued its streak in 2013, once again securing the ACM Award for “Vocal Duo of the Year.”  In all, Thompson Square has scored three #1 hits, five Top 15 hits, seven mainstream industry awards, over 30 award nominations and appeared on major media franchises from The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan and CBS This Morning to Elle, Glamour, The Huffington Post, People, Rolling Stone, USA Today, USA Weekend and many more.

Cleveland-born David Wilcox is a father, a husband, a citizen and a songwriter. First inspired to play guitar after hearing a fellow college student playing in a stairwell, Wilcox is now 18 records into a career marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans. His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music.

Wilcox released an independent album in 1987, was a winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk award in 1988, and by 1989 he had signed with A&M Records. His first release on the label, How Did You Find Me Here, sold over 100,000 copies the first year largely by word of mouth.

Considered a ‘songwriter’s songwriter’, his songs have been covered by artists such as k.d. lang and many others.  In addition to his writing prowess, his skills as a performer and storyteller are unmatched.  He holds audiences rapt with nothing more than a single guitar, thoroughly written songs, a fearless ability to mine the depths of human emotions of joy, sorrow and everything in between, and all tempered by a quick and wry wit.

Reflecting on well over 20 years of record-making and touring extensively around the US and world, Wilcox says, “Music still stretches out before me like the head-lights of a car into the night.  It’s way beyond where I am, but it shows where I’m going.  I used to think that my goal was to catch up, but now I’m grateful that the music is always going to be way out in front to inspire me.”

As soon as I heard the pipes and Irish whistle, something in my blood hit me and said ‘this is what I want to do’.”  The Celts, pack concert halls all across North America.  “I’m proud of my Irish/Scottish roots, but I am equally proud of my American music roots.  So, our music has become a product of merging the two cultures.”

Usually, when a toddler shocks his parents, it’s because of something negative. Not in Kory Caudill’s case. When the world-class pianist was just a few years old, his parents were stunned to see him walk to the piano and play the melody to John Williams’ “Theme from Superman” immediately after it aired on television. They knew their child had a gift, and they worked to provide him with every resource available to develop his musical abilities.

At the age of four, Caudill began his involvement with the Kentucky Opry at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg, Kentucky. As the Kentucky Opry’s popularity grew, Kory had not only become a key member of the organization, but he was the group’s most popular performer. To date, the young pianist has received hundreds of standing ovations for his performances, which have been called “touching” and “inspiring” by thousands of concert goers.

But don’t let aw-shucks demeanor and jeans, boots, plaid shirt and University of Kentucky ball cap attire fool you. He attended the highly-acclaimed Governor’s School of the Arts in Louisville and graduated from Belmont University in Nashville. Kory was he first instrumental student in the history of Belmont to perform in the school’s prestigious Commercial Showcase as well as the “President’s Concert.”

Fast forward to 2015, and Kory Caudill has traveled the world and has become one of America’s most sought after pianists. His fluency in nearly every genre, as well as his highly acclaimed virtuosity, has given him success in multiple facets of the music industry. Whether it be recording and producing projects for artists, touring with country superstars, or selling out concerts of his own, it has become clear that the Caudill is a force to be reckoned with in today’s music industry.

Kory constantly created his own brand of instrumental music, and always had a dream of recording and performing that music on a world-wide stage. His style has been described as “Yanni meets Eastern Kentucky” as a nod to his favorite artist.
His music caught the attention of Naxos of America, the #1 independent classical music distributor in the U.S. and Canada. The innovative and forward-thinking organization thought enough of Kory and his music to sign him as the flagship artist to their new imprint, Suite 28 records.

In so many ways, we are a word weary culture, ever searching for ways to communicate in fewer and fewer words, letters, syllables…Our online, blogged out, you-tubed attention spans are truncated and fragmented like never before. Birds of Chicago, the collective centered around Allison Russell and JT Nero, reassert the simple notion – radical in these times – that beautiful words and music can still tap deep veins of emotion.

real midnight’s gonna come/ real midnight’s’ gonna come
real wolves at your door/ with blood on their tongues
now what you gonna do/ with your days left in the sun ?
ha da la ha

Stark, elemental imagery that feels like scripture, or a lost folk song recovered; the Birds draw heavily on the gospel tradition and the music feels like a new, secular gospel of sorts. For Birds of Chicago, every word counts. Every note counts. No gold-dusting, no filler. Music is the good news and Real Midnight, the band’s poignant new Joe Henry produced album, throbs with an urgency that feels quietly seismic.

Birds of Chicago was born in 2012 when Nero began writing for his vocal star-muse, Russell. Both were accomplished singer/songwriters with projects of their own, Nero with JT and the Clouds and Russell with the acclaimed Canadian roots outfit Po’ Girl, but together there was an unmistakable chemistry. Nero had found the perfect voice for his rock and roll psalms. Russell moved from being a primary songwriter to an interpreter, and her simmering restraint is deeply refreshing to a landscape scorched by post Voice/American Idol vocal gymnastics and over-emoting.

On Real Midnight, Birds of Chicago alternate moody rock swagger with the ghostliest of soundscapes. Produced by Joe Henry, a man who’s expert blending of light and shadow is well known, the album is a melancholy – but never shoe gazing – suite, full of wayward, joyful, lonesome voices raised up against the night.

Music this raw and soul-rich demands to be experienced live, and Birds of Chicago have developed a fervent following, touring 200 nights a year since their formation in late 2012.  For these Birds, singing for a room full of new people, hearts wide open, keeps off the cold and chases off the shadows. 2016 will find the band in constant motion – from sea to sea and beyond.

For all the innovation and invention that goes into modern music these days, it’s the inspiration derived from one’s roots that proves the most enduring. So credit Galway, Ireland’s We Banjo 3 for finding common ground between old world tradition and authentic Americana by plying their banjo, fiddle, guitar and mandolin in an innovation fusion of styles that they dub “Celtgrass.”

Four albums in — their latest, String Theory, was released in July of 2016 — the band’s rousing revelry, sheer virtuosity, power, passion and purpose have made them one of the music world’s most celebrated ensembles. Variously described as “astonishing,” “the Gold Standard of Irish and American Roots music,” and “the Irish Punch Brothers,” they’ve can claim the # 1 position in Billboard’s World Music charts, top honours from IMRO (the Irish Music Rights Organization), top sales numbers and the distinction of entertaining an American president, an Irish Prime Minister and members of the U.S. Congress at the annual “Friends of Ireland” luncheon on Capitol Hill. Little wonder then that We Banjo 3 is literally taking both sides of the Atlantic by storm, carving a reputation as one of the world’s most imaginative ensembles.

Of course, all results are generally due to the sum of the parts, and the individuals involved here all contribute to the common cause. Made up of two sets of siblings — brothers Enda Scahill (tenor banjo, vocals) and Fergal Scahill (fiddle, viola, dobro, percussion, guitar, mandolin, vocals) and brothers Martin Howley (tenor banjo, mandolin, vocals) and David Howley (lead vocals, guitar) – We Banjo 3 finds a natural symmetry as well as a cohesive chemistry that’s been imbued in the band ever since they were initially drawn to one another by their common creative interests. Inspired by the traditional Irish and Americana music they heard growing up, they placed three banjo players in the mix in the beginning, eventually diversifying their sound while broadening their boundaries as well.

Likewise, the individual members brought a credence that extended well beyond their family connections. Martin is a seven-time all-Ireland banjo champion and the first Irish musician to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. Enda has recorded with Ricky Skaggs, the Chieftains and many others, aside from being considered as one of the world’s leading authors and authorities on Irish banjo techniques. Fergal has performed with dozens of artists at home and abroad, and is widely recognized as an Irish champion of both fiddle and bodhran. David has been cited as a solo artist of exceptional skill, while Garry is a veteran of work with numerous bands and individual artists.

Likewise, the evolution in the group’s sound followed a natural progression that evolved early on. Their 2012 debut album, Roots of the Banjo Tree, leaned entirely on banjo music and the various styles implied by that instrumental arsenal. Their critically acclaimed sophomore set, Gather the Good, released in 2014, furthered that vantage point, an aural summation of the impressions and experiences gained while touring the U.S. and their initial introduction to Nashville that was followed by the release of 2015‘s Live in Galway, recorded in the same small hometown pub where the band performed their very first gig.

Their new album, String Theory, appears to be a change in their tack, but only slightly. Half traditional covers, half original material, it finds the band’s reverence for their roots given a contemporary twist, further solidifying the common bonds between the two styles. The various jigs and reels underscore the band’s celebratory stance, but on a tender ballad like the 17th century soliloquy “Two Sisters,” the mix of love, jealousy and evil intent sound tailor made for modern times. While the instrumental interplay is in evidence as always, each individual musician adds his own distinctive style, further affirming their collective cause.

For all the innovation and invention that goes into modern music these days, it’s the inspiration derived from one’s roots that proves the most enduring. So credit Galway, Ireland’s We Banjo 3 for finding common ground between old world tradition and authentic Americana by plying their banjo, fiddle, guitar and mandolin in an innovation fusion of styles that they dub “Celtgrass.”

Four albums in — their latest, String Theory, was released in July of 2016 — the band’s rousing revelry, sheer virtuosity, power, passion and purpose have made them one of the music world’s most celebrated ensembles. Variously described as “astonishing,” “the Gold Standard of Irish and American Roots music,” and “the Irish Punch Brothers,” they’ve can claim the # 1 position in Billboard’s World Music charts, top honours from IMRO (the Irish Music Rights Organization), top sales numbers and the distinction of entertaining an American president, an Irish Prime Minister and members of the U.S. Congress at the annual “Friends of Ireland” luncheon on Capitol Hill.

Ric Blair, founder of The Celts, was a promising jazz major at the University of Cincinnati’s prestigious College Conservatory of Music until a chance encounter changed the entire course of his life. “A buddy of mine said, ‘Hey there’s this Irish group playing tonight,’ American-born and Nashville based Blair remembers.  It took a little prodding, but he agreed to give the concert a shot. “I opened the doors, and people were literally dancing on the tables,” says Blair. “The music was so happy. As soon as I heard the pipes and Irish whistle, something in my blood hit me and said ‘this is what I want to do’.”  The Celts, pack concert halls all across North America.  “I’m proud of my Irish/Scottish roots, but I am equally proud of my American music roots.  So, our music has become a product of merging the two cultures.”

Usually, when a toddler shocks his parents, it’s because of something negative. Not in Kory Caudill’s case. When the world-class pianist was just a few years old, his parents were stunned to see him walk to the piano and play the melody to John Williams’ “Theme from Superman” immediately after it aired on television. They knew their child had a gift, and they worked to provide him with every resource available to develop his musical abilities.

At the age of four, Caudill began his involvement with the Kentucky Opry at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg, Kentucky. As the Kentucky Opry’s popularity grew, Kory had not only become a key member of the organization, but he was the group’s most popular performer. To date, the young pianist has received hundreds of standing ovations for his performances, which have been called “touching” and “inspiring” by thousands of concert goers.

But don’t let aw-shucks demeanor and jeans, boots, plaid shirt and University of Kentucky ball cap attire fool you. He attended the highly-acclaimed Governor’s School of the Arts in Louisville and graduated from Belmont University in Nashville. Kory was he first instrumental student in the history of Belmont to perform in the school’s prestigious Commercial Showcase as well as the “President’s Concert.”

Fast forward to 2015, and Kory Caudill has traveled the world and has become one of America’s most sought after pianists. His fluency in nearly every genre, as well as his highly acclaimed virtuosity, has given him success in multiple facets of the music industry. Whether it be recording and producing projects for artists, touring with country superstars, or selling out concerts of his own, it has become clear that the Caudill is a force to be reckoned with in today’s music industry.

Kory constantly created his own brand of instrumental music, and always had a dream of recording and performing that music on a world-wide stage. His style has been described as “Yanni meets Eastern Kentucky” as a nod to his favorite artist.
His music caught the attention of Naxos of America, the #1 independent classical music distributor in the U.S. and Canada. The innovative and forward-thinking organization thought enough of Kory and his music to sign him as the flagship artist to their new imprint, Suite 28 records.

Donavon Frankenreiter’s new album, “The Heart,” officially marks the start of the singer-songwriter’s second decade as a solo recording artist. It’s been over ten years since the release of his self-titled debut, and in that time he has grown, not only as a musician, but also as a man. He’s raising a family and nurturing two creative careers-one onstage, one in the waves-but on top of all that, he’s still learning what makes him tick. And so, naturally, he named his album after his ticker.

Melodime’s music merges a slight country twang with rock and roll, successfully blending stunning piano melodies with catchy guitar riffs and sing-along choruses.

Melodime, featuring Brad Rhodes (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Sammy Duis (piano, organ, bass), Tyler Duis (drums), and Jon Wiley (guitar, mandolin, dobro, bg vocals), has performed 125+ shows annually throughout the continental United States, sharing the stage with such well-known acts as  Sam Hunt, Jonny Lang, A Thousand Horses, and Sister Hazel. The band has also left its mark internationally with performances in Mexico, Canada, and Europe, all while founding and running a charity, ‘Now I Play Along Too,’ which provides musical instruments and lessons to underprivileged children in the DC area, Florida and Haiti. The band is quickly becoming a fan-favorite in the festival scene, playing four consecutive Rock Boat cruises, as well as Musikfest, Herndon Festival and other events. Around their hometown of Northern Virginia, the group has performed at such popular venues as The Hamilton, The State Theatre, and 9:30 Club.

Melodime’s latest single, “Little Thing Called Love,” has received a great response from both fans and critics alike. The Boot describe the track as “catchy, lyrically strong – and perfect to listen to with the windows down during the summertime months,” while Tune Collective describes the track as a “fun song bursting with vibrant uplifting energy.” Kings of A&R featured the band as a buzzing act, and The Washington Post noted “It doesn’t pay for those who want to say ‘I saw them way back when’ to procrastinate.”  Melodime’s previous albums were recorded with platinum-selling producers, including Where the Sinners & the Saints Collide with Rick Beato  (Parmalee, NeedToBreathe), and 3 Reasons For Fighting with Jim Ebert (Butch Walker, Cowboy Mouth).

2001 with the single “Extra Ordinary.” In 2005, Better Than Ezra had a Top 10 Hot AC hit with
“Juicy” which was not only
licensed by several commercials and brands but also featured in the
promotional advertisements for the popular ABC television series
Desperate Housewives
. Better
Than Ezra’s most recent song, “Breathless,” was covered by Taylor Swift at the Hope for Haiti
telethon and during her world wide tour.
In 2006, Griffin branched into writing for other artists and soon scored a #1 hit with Howie Day’s
“Collide.” Most recently, he has written and produced for a variety of artists in Rock, Pop, and
Country. In 2010, Griffin had Sugarland’s #1 Country hit, “Stuck Like Glue” which according to
Yahoo Music! became the
11th most downloaded country music song of all time
.
Since then,
Griffin has penned singles for David Cook, James Blunt, Augustana, and Tristan Prettyman.
