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. For those even lucky enough to get a ticket, there was nothing that could fill the aching void in between Bruce’s long-awaited tours…until now….

The Bruce In The USA show was born on the Las Vegas Strip in the winter of 2004, with its debut at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, in the majestic “V Theatre”. The show assaulted the senses in a fun-filled and exciting party atmosphere on the Vegas Strip, while suspending disbelief for even the toughest skeptics. They’ve been met with critical acclaim, from the Stone Pony, large theaters, and Performance Art Centers across the country, as well as corporate events spanning across the globe for over a decade. Sell out crowds are on their feet from the first song to the last.

Titled, The World’s Greatest Tribute to Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. by AXS TV’s, THE WORLD’S GREATEST TRIBUTE BANDS, Hosted by Katie Daryl.
Performing a 90 Minute Live Concert on The Sunset Strip, LA.

CHELY WRIGHT I Am The Rain

The opening chords of the first track, “Inside,” on award-winning, singer-songwriter, author, and activist Chely Wright’s new record, I AM THE RAIN, are direct, purposeful, and intense – a sound that defines the brilliant album. After more than five years away from the spotlight, and through a heroic personal and creative journey, Wright has returned with the release of a long anticipated new CD. And as she begins to sing the lyrics of “Inside,” her confidence, intelligence, and poetic ambition quickly come into focus.

When it came time to record her new album, Chely knew it was going to be different from everything she had done in the past. Scheduled for release on September 9th, Wright and multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning producer/artist Joe Henry (Allen Toussaint, Bonnie Raitt, Carolina Chocolate Drops) approached the work as a new beginning. Her recent songs were coming from a place of total openness and spoke to the kind of self-discovery that changes lives.

Putting her talents as a singer-songwriter to the fore-front, the beginnings of which can be seen with producer Rodney Crowell on her 2010 record LIFTED OFF THE GROUND, becomes fully formed on I AM THE RAIN. Crowell actually pointed Chely to Henry and he quickly became a vital influence and contributor to I AM THE RAIN. “Joe’s a visionary,” Wright says. “He taught me to understand that a great deal of making music is intention, and then to trust those intentions all the way. As terrifying as it could be expressing some of these feelings, those have become my best moments. That let me reach for my best self and trust what I found when I did that; and to not be afraid about being imperfect. Instead, just be able to let go.”

On her new album, Wright finally realizes all those dreams of making music that comes from her deepest soul. She has arrived, and we are among the lucky beneficiaries.

Her 2010 Random House memoir, LIKE ME, describes a life of dizzying heights as well as terrifying lows. The truth is told, no matter how painful it might be. As the artist wrote about her coming out as a lesbian, she also struggled with facing all the trauma and inner turmoil she had been through.

Getting there for Wright has been a lifelong journey. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, she grew up in a musical family in the small town of Wellsville, Kansas. The young Wright starting singing professionally at age 11, and by her senior year of high school was working as performing musician at the Ozark Jubilee, a country music show in Branson, Missouri.  After graduating, the young Kansan went directly to Nashville as part of the music production at Opryland USA theme park. Wright landed her first label deal in 1993 with Mercury/Polygram and immediately started getting serious attention in country music circles. In 1995, she was named Top New Female Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music, then scored her first Top 40 country hit in 1997 with “Shut Up and Drive,” from her third album LET ME IN. Two years later, Wright’s fourth album SINGLE WHITE FEMALE produced several hit singles, including the chart-topping Number 1 title track and her first gold album certification. In 2000, Wright and artist Brad Paisley co-wrote the duet “Hard to Be a Husband, Hard to Be a Wife,” performing it at the Grand Ole Opry’s 75th anniversary gala. There were other career highlights in the next few years, including a
nomination for The Horizon Award Vocal Event of the Year at the annual Country Music Association Awards, Top Female Vocalist at the Academy of Country Music Association, a Top 4 debut for her 2001 album NEVER LOVE YOU ENOUGH, and being named to People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” list that same year.

Clearly the promising new singer had become an established national star, but like most careers, there would also be detours ahead. She left her major record label in 2003, and then the next year signed with a new independent label. Her single, “Bumper of My SUV” became a hit with country radio and led to a new affiliation Dualtone Records. Wright’s sixth album, THE METROPOLITAN HOTEL became a Number 7 hit on the Top Independent Albums chart, followed by Vanguard Records’ release LIFTED OFF THE GROUND in 2010, the same year as publication of her self-penned memoir, LIKE ME.

Wright approached the writing process for I AM THE RAIN with a new found hope and excitement that a musical and lyrical expression unique to her alone was in her reach. “I spent time in the hospital room with my mother while she was dying,” Wright says. “I’d recently written ‘At the Heart of Me,’ and as my mom listened to the demo of that song, it became clear to me that it was time to start a new record.”

The range of songs on I AM THE RAIN reflect a view into an entire lifetime. The first song recorded for the album, “See Me Home,” set the stage for the rest of the songs to come. “That song became the rudder of the whole album, feeling like the saying, ‘A rising tide lifts all ships.’ Except in this case it was the rest of the songs.” The lyrics remain the centerpiece of the album:

“Take my hand Walk me through the valley I’ll fear not, with the sun to warm my face There we’ll stand In the light of all that shall be Knowing home has never been a place”

Wright quickly understood this was one of the most moving revelations of the album. It came over her like a wave. “The recordings became a life lesson,” she says. “Something dramatic started happening as the album was unfolding. It required me to just take a seat and absorb these amazing musicians in the room. It was then that I could acknowledge that something was being sprinkled in the atmosphere and it made me able to just trust.”

Part of the power that Henry brought to the album included drummer Jay Bellerose, bassist David Piltch, guitarists Adam Levy and Mark Goldenberg, keyboardist Patrick Warren, saxophonist Levon Henry, and engineer Ryan Freeland. It was in this circle of players and people that Wright realized she had to change how she related to what was being created. “I needed to get really quiet as we made the album. And I needed to recognize all those special moments in the day as they were happening. Several times during the sessions I felt a warmth wash over me as we were working. I had never experienced anything quite like it before.”

In working on the songs that would become I AM THE RAIN, Chely discovered a way to shape not just the life she was hoping to live but also to see all the things that had brought her to this place. “Sometimes the past becomes a stalker, demanding to be acknowledged. And other times it can be a savior, where all the lessons learned are a gateway to the future,” she says.

Nowhere is this more apparent than the song “Next to Me:” “If the world starts comin’ at me And my armor rattles loose If my compass starts to spinnin’ Tell me can I count on you? To say you’ll stay next to me Even on the darkest days we’ll ever know Just stay next to me Next to me forever please don’t go”

As Wright’s new strength was gathering, she was able to look at her past and not fidget or flinch. Each new recording session offered insights and continued aspiration. “At the Heart of Me” became one of her new mantras:

“Our faith is a well and deep down I can tell I’m as thirsty as a mortal can be Silence abounds and is ringing through town Like a bell swinging high over me But it won’t matter now It couldn’t change what I see If a thousand miles lay between us today You’re still at the heart of me”

In speaking about the musical and emotional breakthrough of I AM THE RAIN, it is quickly clear that Chely could not have come to this place without writing her honest and telling memoir LIKE ME, where she speaks so openly of a life sometimes lived in the shadows, and the price that demanded. “Something became free in me when that happened. That process of freedom led to a new way of living. Before the book my object in life was to stay concealed, and I tended to write that way. But now I can write from the inside out, and it completely changes what I can do. I was no longer afraid.”

I AM THE RAIN is a new beginning, but one that is built on the bedrock work of a musical survivor. Milestones achieved include working with Joe Henry, writing with him, Edie Carey and Rodney Crowell, singing with Crowell, Emmylou Harris and the Milk Carton Kids, recording a Bob Dylan song (“Tomorrow is a Long Time”): the list continues. Asked to sum up this hugely significant step in her life, Wright doesn’t hesitate. “I believe I’ve given birth to a beautiful new baby and I would like people who see my baby to think it’s beautiful too. That’s how much this new music means to me. I am so very lucky it all came true.”

Put together by former Grooveshire members, Chris Scott and Mike Hennel, The Summit is a rock n’ roll super group exploding with some of the region’s most talented musicians. Fresh off both publishing and licensing deals in Nashville, TN and Scott’s EP collaboration on “Burn it Down” with former Cage the Elephant Guitarist Lincoln Parish, the song writing duo made their way back home during the fall of 2015 to collaborate with Cincinnati’s own David Hefferon and Micah Hoosier. Magic instantly happened and the new quartet quickly began writing and polishing a whole new flare of soul inspired blues rock n’ roll tunes, very reminiscent of modern day song-writing genius, JJ Grey, fused with the vintage tones of iconic English rock bands such as Led Zeppelin, The Faces and Humble Pie. 
The group quickly gained notoriety across much of the region during the spring of 2016 and hit the road with direct support runs with band’s such as the Los Lonely Boys, The Band of Heathens, Tim Reynolds and TR3, Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown and Marc Ford. The band recently decided to bring on accomplished pianist and heavy bluess hitter, Chris Bentley, to provide a much needed B3 organ sound to the group’s unmatched eclectic sound. 
With the evolution of The Summit’s success, the band continues to invite acclaimed soul-singing duo “Da’Joy” to back up Melfi on vocals. Both Daria Acus and Melonie “Lady Joya” Kennedy were regular fixtures in Scott and Hennel’s previous rock outfit, Grooveshire. “It’s a little Black Crowes, a little Humble Pie, and hell of a lot of soul!” 
The Summit left Cincinnati in August of 2016 to begin recording their debut EP at The Studio Nashville with co-owner and engineer, Brooke Sutton and producer, Michael Rhodes (Tempest Music). The band is looking to drop the EP in March of 2017 under Independent Ear Records and the Universal Musical Group. The EP will feature performances by Big Machine touring artist, Klaus Luchs and the amazing multi-instrumentalist, Andrea Witt (Shania Twain, Zucchero)!

ARTIST BIO

Put together by former Grooveshire members, Chris Scott and Mike Hennel, The Summit is a rock n’ roll super group exploding with some of the region’s most talented musicians. Fresh off both publishing and licensing deals in Nashville, TN and Scott’s EP collaboration on “Burn it Down” with former Cage the Elephant Guitarist Lincoln Parish, the song writing duo made their way back home during the fall of 2015 to collaborate with Cincinnati’s own David Hefferon and Micah Hoosier. Magic instantly happened and the new quartet quickly began writing and polishing a whole new flare of soul inspired blues rock n’ roll tunes, very reminiscent of modern day song-writing genius, JJ Grey, fused with the vintage tones of iconic English rock bands such as Led Zeppelin, The Faces and Humble Pie. 
The group quickly gained notoriety across much of the region during the spring of 2016 and hit the road with direct support runs with band’s such as the Los Lonely Boys, The Band of Heathens, Tim Reynolds and TR3, Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown and Marc Ford. The band recently decided to bring on accomplished pianist and heavy bluess hitter, Chris Bentley, to provide a much needed B3 organ sound to the group’s unmatched eclectic sound. 
With the evolution of The Summit’s success, the band continues to invite acclaimed soul-singing duo “Da’Joy” to back up Melfi on vocals. Both Daria Acus and Melonie “Lady Joya” Kennedy were regular fixtures in Scott and Hennel’s previous rock outfit, Grooveshire. “It’s a little Black Crowes, a little Humble Pie, and hell of a lot of soul!” 
The Summit left Cincinnati in August of 2016 to begin recording their debut EP at The Studio Nashville with co-owner and engineer, Brooke Sutton and producer, Michael Rhodes (Tempest Music). The band is looking to drop the EP in March of 2017 under Independent Ear Records and the Universal Musical Group. The EP will feature performances by Big Machine touring artist, Klaus Luchs and the amazing multi-instrumentalist, Andrea Witt (Shania Twain, Zucchero)!

Contemporary jazz keyboard player Alex Bugnon, nephew of trumpeter Donald Byrd, grew up going to the Montreux Jazz Festival in his hometown in Switzerland. He attended the Paris Conservatory of Music for two years, then moved to the U.S. and went to the Berklee School of Music, meanwhile performing as an accompanist to gospel groups. He spent four years working as a session musician in New York, backing urban and jazz performers such as Patti Austin, Freddie Jackson, James Ingram, and Keith Sweat. Signed to Orpheus Records, he released his debut album, Love Season, in 1989. It reached the pop charts and the Top 40 of the R&B charts, as did its follow-up, 1990’s Head Over Heels. Subsequent releases — 107 Degrees in the Shade (1991), This Time Around (1993), and Tales From the Bright Side (1995), the last on RCA Records — all placed in the R&B charts. After five years away from recording under his own name, Bugnon signed to the jazz division of Narada Records, which marketed him as a jazz artist, and his sixth album, Alex Bugnon…As Promised, reached the contemporary jazz charts. He followed in 2001 with Soul Purpose.

MICHAEL LINGTON – SECOND NATURE:
The number nine in numerology is considered a magical and divine number. It symbolizes completion, wisdom and fulfillment. Multi-talented saxophonist, producer and composer Michael Lington has arrived in his own sacred space with the release of his newest and ninth solo project, Second Nature, due out on Copenhagen Music in April 2016. “The title of the album refers to being at one with my instrument and the music,” shares Lington. “My vision for this project was Retro-Modern! While honoring the original vibe of the Memphis sound, I wanted to put my own stamp on it. This recording is about going back to my roots, to the music that inspired me to play the saxophone and move to America,” explains the handsome and charismatic saxophonist. Second Nature brings Lington full-circle as he pays tribute to the music he first fell in love with while a teen in Copenhagen, Denmark. Nearly 5,000 miles away from the Mecca of blues and soul, Lington listened to the radio and dreamt while falling in love to the music of Sam Cooke, King Curtis and Jr. Walker, among others. “Even as a young musician I connected with the songs because they were written well and had great messages,” recalls Lington. “The performances were outstanding and the artists were original and authentic.” Michael Lington’s own soulful spirited sound and the roots of Memphis soul converge on Second Nature.

Marc Antoine

Since emerging as a force in contemporary jazz in the mid-90s with a trademark sound captured in the title of his debut album Classical Soul, Marc Antoine has shared his joyous musical wanderlust on a discography infused with extraordinary exotic journeys. After living and recording in Madrid – his wife Rebecca’s hometown – for 12 years, the multi-talented Parisian born acoustic guitarist relocated back to Southern California in 2015. While keeping his deep melodic flow and exotic textures front and center, he shares the lighthearted spirit of his exciting new life on his highly anticipated Woodward Avenue Records debut, an homage to his new hometown of Laguna Beach.

Though he recorded some of his most acclaimed recordings while living in Spain – including Hi-Lo Split, My Classical Way, Guitar Destiny and Foreign Xchange, his dual guitar album with current Woodward Avenue labelmate Paul Brown – Antoine often felt stylistically limited when working with locals who were versed mostly in pop and flamenco. He deeply missed the kind of versatility of his musician friends that lived in California, and the camaraderie they shared. Though he began a handful of the nine tracks at his home studio in Madrid, Antoine – who plays nylon string, steel string, electric guitar, keyboards and percussion – was excited and freshly inspired by the musicians he invited to play on Laguna Beach.

Two years ago, KT Tunstall Thought she was done with music. Not done as in she’d never again play guitar or sing, but done playing professionally, at least for the foreseeable future. “As an artist I feel like I died,” she says. “I didn’t want to do it anymore.” It had been ten years since she’d released her multi-platinum debut, ‘Eye To The Telescope’ (2004), and twenty-some years since she started playing gigs as a teenager back home in St. Andrews, Scotland. She’d lived a decade in obscurity and a decade in the brightest of limelights, releasing three more critically acclaimed albums — ‘Drastic Fantastic’ (2007,) ‘Tiger Suit’ (2010,) and ‘Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon’ (2013) — and playing everywhere from the rooftops of splashy Las Vegas hotels to Giant’s Stadium. She’d been nominated for a Grammy, won a BRIT and the Ivor Novello, and seen her songs used everywhere from opening credits of “The Devil Wears Prada” to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign theme. She’d had a good run, Tunstall thought, but it was time to take a serious time out. “I was utterly burnt out,” she says.

So the singer put her stuff in storage, sold all of her property in the UK, and started again, at what felt like the ends of an entirely different earth, in a little house in Venice Beach, California. She lived a quiet life for the better part of a year, until, like a little imp waiting in the wings for Tunstall to get really comfortable in her state of blissed out California calm, one day the urge to rock began to return. And once it took hold, it just wouldn’t let go. “My physical body was telling me that what I should be doing is sweating onstage,” she says. “It turns out, if I can’t do that then I’m just a racehorse in a stable.” Almost against her own will, Tunstall found herself picking up her guitar and writing riffs. And they came, one after another after another after another.

The music that Tunstall has written since moving to California is, she says, the most impassioned and inspired of her life; these songs were fueled by the openness of desert spaces and wild ocean cliffs, the intimacy of being snowbound in Taos, New Mexico during winter writing retreats, and the freedom and mystery of driving too fast on canyon roads late at night listening to Neil Young and Tame Impala at top volume. A new full-length album coming this September, is, in spirit, the follow-up, to her debut. A edge-of-your-seat, psychedelic rock record rooted in classic songwriting, but infused with the sense of wonder and beneficent chaos Tunstall has reconnected with since untethering herself from her past. But first up, a little teaser of what’s to come: ‘Golden State,’ a four-song EP out this June including a remix of “Evil Eye” by critically acclaimed UK band Django Django.

The opening track, “Evil Eye,” was the first song that came to her since going on hiatus. “It was just a little seed,” the singer remembers. She’d been rehearsing for a string of low-key gigs where she’d be performing some of her back catalogue, the first shows since the relatively formal, seated gigs she’d given last time she was on tour. “It was a vibrant up-tempo high-octane gig, after so long of not playing that kind of show,” she recalls. Something got shaken loose. “I just got excited, and it was then that I wrote the riff for ‘Evil Eye.'” With its beguiling psychedelic whooshing intro, propulsive guitar line and primal backbeat, the song comes on all roll-your-windows-down-and-turn-me-up, before sneaking up behind you with a downright chilling chorus: “There’s an evil eye, watching you.” “Some of these songs are like cats, they’re really furry and sweet and then they fuckin’ scratch you, and they won’t let you put a leash on them, ever,” Tunstall says gleefully.

Above all, what these songs have in common is they all feel like they had to be written. And now that they’re done, Tunstall is standing at the starting line, just itching for the gun to go off. “Getting to know myself these last few years and getting to know what my own mind is capable of and what my soul is capable of and what my spirit is capable of — reading and learning and reaching out to new people and gleaning new information about what’s possible as a human, it has all made me want to ask the same questions of myself as a musician: how much can I expand?! Where can I go from here?!” Tunstall enthuses, nearly out of breath. “This feels like the beginning of the second chapter of my career.”

The Acoustic Living Room
Songs and Stories with Kathy Mattea
Featuring Bill Cooley
Grammy Award winning singer Kathy Mattea and her longtime collaborator, guitarist Bill Cooley, have shared one of Nashville’s most musically rich partnerships for over two decades. The duo meets as old friends, welcoming you into The Acoustic Living Room to share songs and stories near and dear to their hearts — including Kathy’s beloved classics such as “18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses,” “Where’ve You Been?,” and many other hits, plus a handful of more eclectic and often requested tunes from her extensive catalogue, and a sprinkling of brand new material, all reinterpreted for the duo format. Her 18 albums are woven through with bluegrass, gospel, and Celtic influences, and have garnered multiple CMA, ACM, and Grammy Awards. A genuine storyteller, Kathy draws inspiration from her Appalachian roots and is a torchbearer for often overlooked musical legacies like those of Hazel Dickens and Jean Ritchie. Her most recent album, Calling Me Home, is a collection of songs that celebrates the Appalachian culture of her native West Virginia and expands the vocabulary of acoustic roots music that has always served as her artistic center.

Howdy, We are Jared & The Mill. All of us were born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and we still call it home today. When we first got started in the summer of 2011 we just wanted to play some music with our best buds, have a few shows, and have a good time. Jared and Michael had been buddies and playing music together since they were kids, and after they met up with another childhood duo, Josh Morin and Larry Gast III, after that they realized they needed a bass player, so along came Chuck Morris III. Some months later, Jared ran into Gabe Hall Rodrigues, a local accordion and keys player at a coffee shop. Gabe joined, and as it goes we were soon hammering along in the local scene, playing alongside the bands of new friends and old throughout Arizona. The wheels kept turning, and before we knew it we had over three years of touring under our boots; playing in the living rooms, dive bars, venues, theaters, music festivals, and even arenas of this big ol’ country of our’s alongside fellow upcoming bands, and with some of the biggest acts we had always looked up to.

Playing for fifty people one night in a smokey bar, and the very next night opening up and playing for eighteen thousand in an arena was inspiring and eye opening to say the least. Opening up and sharing stages with the likes of Zac Brown Band, Barry Gibb, Boy & Bear, War on Drugs, Wildfeathers, Cake, Flogging Molly, The Killers, Allen Stone, and others while touring alongside bands just getting their start like us was a real honor. We certainly gained invaluable experience from all those shows and all those trials, but something else happened out there on the road for us, something we have a hard time explaining, but anyone who’s spent some time out there on the interstate understands; we became not just friends, but family.

Being out there changed our lives, it changed how we thought about things and it changed how we wrote about things. Those miles molded our music and molded our souls and it made our bond even stronger. Life gives to you and it takes from you, and we have written about that give, and that take. We’ve written about getting older, about those friends and those loved ones and those things that never leave and about those that do; about those sweet things and those bitter things, and that struggle to keep the course as you try your best to carve yourself into what you hope is a good man. We have written about our desert home we so very often miss, and we’ve written about the stories of others we’ve heard along the way. Our music has been called, compared and regarded by a number of different names and genres, and we’ve been influenced and shaped by many different events and people, but more than anything, we’d like to think that some shred of the Southwest — of our home — can be found in the heart of our music.

So here we are, with new music to release and another busy year ahead. We’ve got some new tunes and a sound that has grown, and we’re eager as hell to share it with all of you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for listening.

We’ll see you down the road,
Jared & The Mill

ARTIST BIO

Howdy, We are Jared & The Mill. All of us were born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and we still call it home today. When we first got started in the summer of 2011 we just wanted to play some music with our best buds, have a few shows, and have a good time. Jared and Michael had been buddies and playing music together since they were kids, and after they met up with another childhood duo, Josh Morin and Larry Gast III, after that they realized they needed a bass player, so along came Chuck Morris III. Some months later, Jared ran into Gabe Hall Rodrigues, a local accordion and keys player at a coffee shop. Gabe joined, and as it goes we were soon hammering along in the local scene, playing alongside the bands of new friends and old throughout Arizona. The wheels kept turning, and before we knew it we had over three years of touring under our boots; playing in the living rooms, dive bars, venues, theaters, music festivals, and even arenas of this big ol’ country of our’s alongside fellow upcoming bands, and with some of the biggest acts we had always looked up to.

Playing for fifty people one night in a smokey bar, and the very next night opening up and playing for eighteen thousand in an arena was inspiring and eye opening to say the least. Opening up and sharing stages with the likes of Zac Brown Band, Barry Gibb, Boy & Bear, War on Drugs, Wildfeathers, Cake, Flogging Molly, The Killers, Allen Stone, and others while touring alongside bands just getting their start like us was a real honor. We certainly gained invaluable experience from all those shows and all those trials, but something else happened out there on the road for us, something we have a hard time explaining, but anyone who’s spent some time out there on the interstate understands; we became not just friends, but family.

ROYAL WOOD

There are various explanations for the term ‘ghost light’ in relation to the world around us. There is the supernatural narrative – that every theatre has a ghost, and that when the light isn’t lit, the darkness provides a chance for the dead to haunt us. And then there is the Royal Wood version of GHOST LIGHT. The kind that lets someone truly shine from within– raw, honest and open…. and that’s why he has named his new record after this mythical glow.

“This album for me was a full return to writing and recording simply for the joy of creation – like when I was a kid. A true letting go and allowing,” says Royal. “I jumped around from instrument to instrument in the studio; playing piano and guitar solos, bass, keys, percussion, anything and everything I could get my hands on.” In fact, Royal played on almost 90% of the record, with a few artists like Hannah Georgas and Felicity Williams (Bahamas) adding their special blend of talents along the way. It was recorded in both Los Angeles and Toronto, with Bill Lefler and Royal at the production helm.

The result is an album that exudes raw emotion and emanates a feel of the songwriters of the sixties and seventies. Without modern day studio trickery like auto-tuning and digital perfection, the album is warm, inviting and completely forthright. “I felt like on this album, I snuffed out the external Ghost Lights, and allowed my internal light to glow instead,” says Royal, “this allowed the spirits of my past, present and future into the room to guide me along my artistic path.” The first single ‘Long Way Out’ exemplifies this definitive focus of the record. It’s gripping and melodic and screams with sincerity.

Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Royal Wood has established himself as a true musical talent. Since being proclaimed “Songwriter of the Year” by iTunes, Wood has continued to evolve and hone his musical craft – maintaining an unmistakable identity while uncovering and reinventing his sound.

Wood has two albums that have debuted in the Top 30, multiple JUNO nominations and a #1 added song at Hot AC radio. His songs have been heard on high profile sync placements like Grey’s Anatomy, and Private Practice.
Wood’s new album GHOST LIGHT, featuring the single “Long Way Out” is due out April 22, 2016 via Cadence Music Group/Universal.

GHOST LIGHT marks an immense change in his life and his artistic path, delivering more and more of a letting go to the forefront of his music. The record seizes his sincerest passion for creativity and imagination. It showcases a deeper understanding of where his journey began and where he wants to take it. GHOST LIGHT has given a new meaning to the path in Wood’s career, where unabashed creativity and performance will continue to shine and cultivate his trajectory – no matter where it leads

For thousands of years, sailors navigated by the stars, trusting the constellations to keep them on the correct course. The same celestial bodies that led them away from home were the same ones that directed them back. Since childhood, Eric and Leigh Gibson’s guiding stars have been songs recorded by music’s greatest brother duos: the Monroes, the Louvins, and the Everlys, whose close harmonies have captivated listeners for decades. On February 24, 2015, the two-time International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year released Brotherhood, a salute to those influential groups. “Making an album like this is something we’ve always talked about,” explains Leigh Gibson. “At some point you have to stop talking and start doing.” Older brother Eric elaborates: “We love that tradition of brothers singing together, and to pay tribute to that shows people where our hearts are.” For Brotherhood, Eric and Leigh chose fifteen songs from country, bluegrass, and early rock ‘n’ roll brother acts. The track listing reflects nearly a century of American music history, from “The Eastbound Train,” a parlor tune with roots that can be traced back to the 1890s, to “It’ll Be Her,” a Top 20 single released by Tompall and the Glaser Brothers in 1982. This is the music the Gibsons grew up with on the family dairy farm in Ellenburg Depot, a tiny town in upstate New York that was closer to the Canadian border than it was to a record store. Brotherhood is the Gibsons’ twelfth album since their 1993 debut, Underneath a Harvest Moon. 20 years on, Eric and Leigh have matured considerably as musicians, writers and performers, causing an ever-growing legion of bluegrass fans to take notice and garnering impressive amounts of critical acclaim: not only did the band win IBMA’s Entertainer of the Year Award in 2012 and 2013, but the organization presented Eric with the prestigious Songwriter of the Year Award last year as well. The Gibson Brothers have come into their own, combining their wide-ranging influences – live shows are often peppered with a variety of covers ranging from Buck Owens to Tom Petty – into a unique style that honors tradition while still sounding refreshingly new. The material is familiar, yet in some ways Brotherhood is an album of firsts. It’s the Gibson Brothers’ first album on Rounder Records, their first covers project, and it’s also the first release that includes the newest member of the band, award-winning mandolin player and vocalist Jesse Brock, who joined the group in late 2012. Though Brock has only been with the band for two years, the lineup has never sounded tighter. Fiddler Clayton Campbell has been with the band for a decade, and bassist Mike Barber has played with Leigh and Eric for so long that he’s affectionately known as the third Gibson Brother. While their stunning harmonies capture most of the fan and critical attention, Eric and Leigh are also accomplished musicians, playing banjo and guitar, respectively. While this impeccable five-man team is the heart of the record, which was largely recorded live in the studio, several guests appear on Brotherhood, giving the album a welcome dose of variety while still remaining true to the original songs and the Gibsons’ own sound. Ronnie and Rob McCoury sing and play mandolin and banjo on a spellbinding version of “What a Wonderful Savior is He,” a song that was recorded by The Four Brothers Quartet, a 1959 collaboration between Knoxville-area duos the Webster and Brewster Brothers. Ronnie Reno, a former Osborne Brothers sideman, lends harmony vocals to “Each Season Changes You” and one of the most beloved songs of the bluegrass canon, “How Mountain Girls Can Love.” Russ Pahl (who’s played on sessions for Don Williams, Kacey Musgraves, and dozens more) contributes aching pedal steel to the stunning version of the Everly Brothers’ “Crying in the Rain” that closes out the album, while drummer Sam Zucchini, who appeared on several of the Gibsons’ earlier releases, provides percussion. Listeners will immediately recognize material released by familiar names like Phil and Don Everly (“Bye Bye Love” and “Crying in the Rain”), Charlie and Ira Louvin (“Seven Year Blues”), Jim and Jesse McReynolds (“Sweet Little Miss Blue Eyes”), and Carter and Ralph Stanley (“How Mountain Girls Can Love”), but Brotherhood includes covers of songs recorded by some lesser-known acts as well, including The Blue Sky Boys (“The Sweetest Gift”), The York Brothers (“Long Gone”), and The Church Brothers (“Angel with Blue Eyes”). These are duos whose harmonies fit together so tightly that you can’t tell where one voice stops and the other begins. The concept of families singing together is a tradition that stretches back through the history of folk music, and with 20 years of professional musicianship behind them, the Gibson Brothers, using those groups as a compass, have established themselves as proud keepers of that musical heritage. “These are the acts that pointed us in our direction musically. After we got going, we went our own way for a while,” explains Leigh. “But the process of making this record brought us back to the music we were listening to when we were just getting started. So many of these songs, when we sing them, I feel like I did when I was 15 years old, sitting in our living room in the farmhouse and learning how to play. This music is a part of our soul.”

We Banjo 3 is a band from Galway, Ireland that plays a blend of traditional Irish, old time, and bluegrass music they call Celt Grass. The band is composed of two sets of brothers, Enda and Fergal Scahill and Martin and David Howley, and frequent substitute Garry O’Meara. Earle Hitchner, music writer for The Wall Street Journal, described their playing as a “freshness and finesse bordering on the magical,” and LiveIreland proclaiming them “the hottest group in Irish music…” Their debut album Roots of the Banjo Tree was released in 2012 and was named “Traditional Music Album of the Year” by The Irish Times. This was followed by the release of Gather the Good in 2014. Siobhan Long, music critic for the Irish Times, writes “We Banjo 3 are a musical Betty Ford Clinic, almost singlehandedly rehabilitating the much maligned banjo in 4 short years.” In 2016 the band released their fourth album String Theory which debuted at Number One on the Billboard Charts.

David Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight Gold albums and one Platinum album. Having inspired countless other musicians, Dave has worked in many genres which typically blend instrumental pop, R&B and lately, more and more traditional jazz. He released his first solo album Taking Off in 1975, but has been playing the saxophone since before he was in high school when he was inspired by the great Chicago blues artists near his hometown of St. Louis.

Having contracted polio at the age of three, Dave was introduced to the saxophone as part of his treatment therapy. By the age of 14, he was able to play with legends such as Albert King and Little Milton. Dave went on to study music at Northwestern University before transferring to the University of Iowa where he played and studied with the great saxophonist JR Monterose.

Later traveling to California on the advice of a friend, he joined the Butterfield Blues Band and played Woodstock with Paul Butterfield. Following that, Dave toured with Stevie Wonder and recorded for Wonder’s Talking Book album, played with The Rolling Stones, and toured with David Bowie with whom he recorded the famous solo heard on “Young Americans”. At the same time, Dave was touring and recording with the great Gil Evans, dividing his time between the two. After moving to New York City and studying with George Coleman, Dave started his solo career where he later collaborated with such artists as Paul Simon and James Taylor.

Dave’s solo release of Taking Off in 1975—still considered a classic—further solidified his career. His 1979 release of Hideaway became a popular hit and further propelled Dave’s ascent with the single, “Seduction” being featured in the movie, American Gigolo. Veteran bassist and composer Marcus Miller joined Dave on the 1981 album, Voyeur. The single, “All I Need Is You” won Dave his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Instrumental Performance. In 1983, Dave released the hit album Backstreet that included Luther Vandross as a featured guest vocalist.

ARTIST BIO

David Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight Gold albums and one Platinum album. Having inspired countless other musicians, Dave has worked in many genres which typically blend instrumental pop, R&B and lately, more and more traditional jazz. He released his first solo album Taking Off in 1975, but has been playing the saxophone since before he was in high school when he was inspired by the great Chicago blues artists near his hometown of St. Louis.

Having contracted polio at the age of three, Dave was introduced to the saxophone as part of his treatment therapy. By the age of 14, he was able to play with legends such as Albert King and Little Milton. Dave went on to study music at Northwestern University before transferring to the University of Iowa where he played and studied with the great saxophonist JR Monterose.

Later traveling to California on the advice of a friend, he joined the Butterfield Blues Band and played Woodstock with Paul Butterfield. Following that, Dave toured with Stevie Wonder and recorded for Wonder’s Talking Book album, played with The Rolling Stones, and toured with David Bowie with whom he recorded the famous solo heard on “Young Americans”. At the same time, Dave was touring and recording with the great Gil Evans, dividing his time between the two. After moving to New York City and studying with George Coleman, Dave started his solo career where he later collaborated with such artists as Paul Simon and James Taylor.

Dave’s solo release of Taking Off in 1975—still considered a classic—further solidified his career. His 1979 release of Hideaway became a popular hit and further propelled Dave’s ascent with the single, “Seduction” being featured in the movie, American Gigolo. Veteran bassist and composer Marcus Miller joined Dave on the 1981 album, Voyeur. The single, “All I Need Is You” won Dave his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Instrumental Performance. In 1983, Dave released the hit album Backstreet that included Luther Vandross as a featured guest vocalist.

Twenty years after her recording debut, Dreamland, Madeleine Peyroux continues her musical journey of exploring beyond the ordinary with Secular Hymns, a spirited and soulful masterwork of loping, skipping, sassy, feisty and sexy tunes delivered in a captivating mélange of funk, blues and jazz.

With her trio that had been touring together for two years—electric guitarist Jon Herington and upright bassist Barak Mori—Peyroux set out to record in a live setting a collection of songs that have their own hymn-like stories of self-awareness and inner dialogue, a communal consciousness and a spiritual essence.

“Music has been our spiritual life,” she says. “So I think of these as hymns, secular hymns—songs that are very individual, personal, introverted.”

With her seductively expressive voice, Peyroux intimately renders tunes by seminal blues artists (two penned by Willie Dixon and one by Lil Green), the classic gospel singer Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the under-the-radar dub star Linton Kwesi Johnson, three renowned contemporary composers (Tom Waits, Townes Van Zandt, Allen Toussaint), the 19th century composer Stephen Foster (considered to be the first great songwriter in America) and ending with a traditional African-American spiritual.

What’s remarkable is the unique way in which this recording came to life. The story starts with a concert in an old church in the rural Oxfordshire countryside of England. Celebrated French chef Raymond Blanc had purchased an old manor in the tiny village of Little Milton and renamed it Belmond Le Manoir where he hosts events, including a nine-course meal in his Michelin-starred restaurant. As a part of the whole experience, people are invited before dinner to go to the nearby 12th-century Norman-styled church, St. Mary the Virgin, to attend a concert of live music. Last year Peyroux and her trio were invited to perform.

“At the sound check, I was singing Randy Newman’s song ’Guilty,’ and it was amazing the way my voice sounded in the cavernous room,” Peyroux says. “It has a wood ceiling that gave my voice a reverb. My live engineer Doug Dawson told me I should make a record there.”

Fresh from the rarefied experience of performing their songbook there, a few months later, they all returned to the church with Peyroux wanting to document the secular hymnal she and her band had been developing on the road. “We had all become very close, and we were stretching to come up with new sounds,” the acoustic guitarist says, noting that she had added a guilele (an acoustic, nylon-stringed tenor ukulele) to the voice of the band. “Jon became very versatile on the guitar and Barak was good with the bow. Plus they both like to sing. ”

Peyroux booked the 200-seat church for three days—first day for set up and sound check, second for a free live show for townspeople that was recorded, and third to recut new live takes sans audience if needed. “It was a blast playing with Jon and Barak and so much had to do with the interplay among us,” says Peyroux. “It’s a recording that reflects the organic way we had been working as a trio on the arrangements of these songs.”

While noting that she veers away from being “the normal jazz trio,” Peyroux nonetheless brings her jazz sensibility into roots music territory in such a moving way that she captures the celebration and praise implied in the songs—a special ten-song collection of bona fide Secular Hymns.

California Guitar Trio at Live! at the Ludlow Garage

California Guitar Trio – Celebrating 25 years of making music together

The universe of guitar knows no boundaries for The California Guitar Trio. Since 1991, the group has enthralled listeners with a singular sound that fearlessly crisscrosses genres. The trio’s questing spirit drives it to explore the intersections between rock, jazz, classical, and world music. It even throws in the occasional surf or spaghetti Western tune for good measure.

Comprised of Bert Lams, Hideyo Moriya and Paul Richards, the group has established a unique, personal connection with audiences. In addition to dazzling musicianship and interplay, The California Guitar Trio’s (CGT) shows are full of captivating stories and humor that enable concertgoers to feel like they’re part of the music, not just spectators. In fact, the group’s goal is to transcend their instruments, so people focus on the music first, and its considerable technical prowess a distant second.

CGT’s 15 albums, streamed over 59 million times on Pandora, offer diverse snapshots of the group’s mercurial muse. The trio’s most recent release Komorebi showcases its acoustic side, with beautiful lush originals and innovative cover arrangements of Beatles, Beach Boys and more. Other highlights include Masterworks and album of classical works, with expansive takes on Bach, Beethoven, Arvo Pärt, and Schubert. Andromeda, which combines their many influences into a visionary album of original material; CG3+2, an exploration of kinetic rock territory in collaboration with bassist Tony Levin and drummer Pat Mastelotto; and Echoes, which reimagines timeless material by artists such as Mike Oldfield, Penguin Café Orchestra, Pink Floyd, and Queen.

The trio’s output has made a major global impact, having served as the soundtrack for Olympics coverage, and programs on CNN, CBS, NBC, and ESPN. They have fans in high places too: Nasa used their music to wake the crew aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour.

CGT’s lineup is truly the sum of its distinct parts: A Utah native now residing in Los Angeles, Paul Richards immersed himself in rock, blues, jazz, and folk during his early days and while attending The University of Utah’s jazz guitar program. Bert Lams, originally from Belgium, graduated from the prestigious Royal Conservatory of Music in Brussels, specializing in classical guitar. Tokyo-born Hideyo Moriya began his guitar journey with surf music and British rock, before relocating to Boston to study at Berklee.

All three felt the call to push themselves to the limit by enrolling in Robert Fripp’s challenging Guitar Craft courses, where they first met in 1987. They went on to tour together as part of Fripp’s League of Crafty Guitarists, before forming the California Guitar Trio in Los Angeles four years later.

Recently, the trio expanded its collaborative possibilities by working within a six-guitar format with the Montreal Guitar Trio. During these groundbreaking, highly-entertaining shows, the acts perform inventive arrangements of each other’s repertoire, and new music for guitar sextet.

25 years and 1,800+ gigs later, the CGT remains intensely committed to explore, evolve and communicate a wide-ranging musical worldview.

Noah Hunt has been the voice of Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s band since 1997, when he recorded the Shreveport-born blues guitar player’s second album, Trouble Is. We know a lot about the blonde-haired former ingénue who can channel Stevie Ray Vaughan with just a few plucks of a guitar string and that he is mighty obsessed with classic cars. But what do we know about the dark-haired man behind those vocal cords singing the blues rock that Shepherd is known for? “I’d rather just sing than talk about myself,” Hunt proclaimed with a hearty laugh upon starting our interview before their show in Biloxi earlier this month.

Shepherd may be the face and orator of the KWS Band but we felt it was time to get to know the other voice. Touring on the heels of a wonderful new album appropriately titled Goin’ Home, Hunt was again called upon to stir up the blues pot of gold, covering such classics as Bo Diddley’s “You Can’t Judge A Book By The Cover” and BB King’s “You Done Lost Your Good Thing Now,” both of which they have been performing live.

Hunt has always been a natural fit for Shepherd’s guitar tone. Despite earning a college degree in English, music steered his future from an early age. With soundcheck looming, Hunt opened up a bit about his life before and after Kenny Wayne.

Since we don’t know a lot about you, why don’t you tell us where you grew up and how you got into music.

Well, I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and I always loved music, even as a small child. I used to lay in bed when I was a little kid and make up songs when I was like three years old. When I was four, my parents got me piano lessons at the old Baldwin factory in town there. I think it was 1974, and they had a real advanced, for the time, kind of teaching method. It was sort of like the Yamaha method but it was very hands-on. I learned how to play piano and to read music and taught how to sing. So between the time I was four and seven, I had piano lessons and I really got the basics.

At the same time, I got a little record player, a kids record player, and I got tired of my own records so I went and pillaged my parents’ record collection and I loved The Beatles. I would play all their Beatles records, and this was before I was in Kindergarten, but I would play all their Beatles records and scratched them up (laughs). Then I kind of worked my way through their catalog. As I grew up and got older I moved on to like the Stones and Pink Floyd, and into my teen years I got into the Allman Brothers and the Grateful Dead. So I was pretty much raised on Classic Rock. I quit playing the piano when I was seven or eight because I got into sports and other things kids do. Then when I was sixteen, I taught myself to play guitar, which was pretty easy because of piano, but I pretty much just did that so I could accompany myself with singing. That’s always what came natural to me, the singing. I tried to be Jimi Hendrix for a while but I just couldn’t do it (laughs) so I had to focus on other things.

Noah Hunt has been the voice of Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s band since 1997, when he recorded the Shreveport-born blues guitar player’s second album, Trouble Is. We know a lot about the blonde-haired former ingénue who can channel Stevie Ray Vaughan with just a few plucks of a guitar string and that he is mighty obsessed with classic cars. But what do we know about the dark-haired man behind those vocal cords singing the blues rock that Shepherd is known for? “I’d rather just sing than talk about myself,” Hunt proclaimed with a hearty laugh upon starting our interview before their show in Biloxi earlier this month.

Shepherd may be the face and orator of the KWS Band but we felt it was time to get to know the other voice. Touring on the heels of a wonderful new album appropriately titled Goin’ Home, Hunt was again called upon to stir up the blues pot of gold, covering such classics as Bo Diddley’s “You Can’t Judge A Book By The Cover” and BB King’s “You Done Lost Your Good Thing Now,” both of which they have been performing live.

Hunt has always been a natural fit for Shepherd’s guitar tone. Despite earning a college degree in English, music steered his future from an early age. With soundcheck looming, Hunt opened up a bit about his life before and after Kenny Wayne.

Since we don’t know a lot about you, why don’t you tell us where you grew up and how you got into music.

Well, I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and I always loved music, even as a small child. I used to lay in bed when I was a little kid and make up songs when I was like three years old. When I was four, my parents got me piano lessons at the old Baldwin factory in town there. I think it was 1974, and they had a real advanced, for the time, kind of teaching method. It was sort of like the Yamaha method but it was very hands-on. I learned how to play piano and to read music and taught how to sing. So between the time I was four and seven, I had piano lessons and I really got the basics.

At the same time, I got a little record player, a kids record player, and I got tired of my own records so I went and pillaged my parents’ record collection and I loved The Beatles. I would play all their Beatles records, and this was before I was in Kindergarten, but I would play all their Beatles records and scratched them up (laughs). Then I kind of worked my way through their catalog. As I grew up and got older I moved on to like the Stones and Pink Floyd, and into my teen years I got into the Allman Brothers and the Grateful Dead. So I was pretty much raised on Classic Rock. I quit playing the piano when I was seven or eight because I got into sports and other things kids do. Then when I was sixteen, I taught myself to play guitar, which was pretty easy because of piano, but I pretty much just did that so I could accompany myself with singing. That’s always what came natural to me, the singing. I tried to be Jimi Hendrix for a while but I just couldn’t do it (laughs) so I had to focus on other things.

A phenomenal talent whose feel for classic soul music is bone deep…This woman is on fire.” — The New York Times

One voice is all it takes. The right vocalist can make you fall in love at first listen, elicit tears, or bring you back to a different era altogether. A microphone and a stage remain the only necessities. That holds true for New York-based soul singer, songwriter, and Broadway chanteuse Morgan James. On her full-length debut for Epic Records, Hunter, she casts an unbreakable spell with a powerhouse voice, theatrical swing, and a soulful poise.

Hunter boasts powerful and personal renditions of Prince’s “Call My Name” (reached Top 15 at Urban AC radio and #1 most added) along with Hall & Oates’ “She’s Gone” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark”. The album features a gradient of soulful styles: from lush tracks, with stacks of voices and horns; modern throwbacks to summertime pop; haunting ballads; empowering farewells.

David Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight Gold albums and one Platinum album. Having inspired countless other musicians, Dave has worked in many genres which typically blend instrumental pop, R&B and lately, more and more traditional jazz. He released his first solo album Taking Off in 1975, but has been playing the saxophone since before he was in high school when he was inspired by the great Chicago blues artists near his hometown of St. Louis.

Having contracted polio at the age of three, Dave was introduced to the saxophone as part of his treatment therapy. By the age of 14, he was able to play with legends such as Albert King and Little Milton. Dave went on to study music at Northwestern University before transferring to the University of Iowa where he played and studied with the great saxophonist JR Monterose.

Later traveling to California on the advice of a friend, he joined the Butterfield Blues Band and played Woodstock with Paul Butterfield. Following that, Dave toured with Stevie Wonder and recorded for Wonder’s Talking Book album, played with The Rolling Stones, and toured with David Bowie with whom he recorded the famous solo heard on “Young Americans”. At the same time, Dave was touring and recording with the great Gil Evans, dividing his time between the two. After moving to New York City and studying with George Coleman, Dave started his solo career where he later collaborated with such artists as Paul Simon and James Taylor.

Dave’s solo release of Taking Off in 1975—still considered a classic—further solidified his career. His 1979 release of Hideaway became a popular hit and further propelled Dave’s ascent with the single, “Seduction” being featured in the movie, American Gigolo. Veteran bassist and composer Marcus Miller joined Dave on the 1981 album, Voyeur. The single, “All I Need Is You” won Dave his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Instrumental Performance. In 1983, Dave released the hit album Backstreet that included Luther Vandross as a featured guest vocalist. Later albums have included guest artists such as Jack DeJohnette, Bill Frisell, Charlie Hayden, Wallace Roney, Kenny Barron, Christian McBride, and Eric Clapton.

Moving onto television, Dave hosted the show, Night Music from 1988 to 1990. Produced by Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, the show featured films of jazz legends like Thelonious Monk, Dave Brubeck and Billie Holiday, as well as banter and memorable music jams by a remarkable list of musicians including Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, Joe Sample, Pharoah Sanders, and many others. Additionally, Dave has regularly hosted the “After New Year’s Eve” TV special on ABC. During the 1980s and 1990s, Dave hosted a syndicated radio program, The Jazz Show with David Sanborn. Dave has also recorded many shows’ theme songs as well as several other songs for The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder.

In his three-and-a-half decade career, Dave has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight Gold albums and one Platinum album. He continues to be one of the most highly active musicians of his genre, with 2010 tour dates exceeding 150. Considered as a whole, Dave is an artist who pushes the limits and continues to make music that challenges the mind and goes Straight to The Heart

Veteran bassist and composer Marcus Miller joined Dave on the 1981 album, Voyeur. The single, “All I Need Is You” won Dave his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Instrumental Performance. In 1983, Dave released the hit album Backstreet that included Luther Vandross as a featured guest vocalist. Later albums have included guest artists such as Jack DeJohnette, Bill Frisell, Charlie Hayden, Wallace Roney, Kenny Barron, Christian McBride, and Eric Clapton.

Moving onto television, Dave hosted the show, Night Music from 1988 to 1990. Produced by Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, the show featured films of jazz legends like Thelonious Monk, Dave Brubeck and Billie Holiday, as well as banter and memorable music jams by a remarkable list of musicians including Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, Joe Sample, Pharoah Sanders, and many others. Additionally, Dave has regularly hosted the “After New Year’s Eve” TV special on ABC. During the 1980s and 1990s, Dave hosted a syndicated radio program, The Jazz Show with David Sanborn. Dave has also recorded many shows’ theme songs as well as several other songs for The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder.

In his three-and-a-half decade career, Dave has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight Gold albums and one Platinum album. He continues to be one of the most highly active musicians of his genre, with 2010 tour dates exceeding 150. Considered as a whole, Dave is an artist who pushes the limits and continues to make music that challenges the mind and goes Straight to The Heart

There are various explanations for the term ‘ghost light’ in relation to the world around us. There is the supernatural narrative – that every theatre has a ghost, and that when the light isn’t lit, the darkness provides a chance for the dead to haunt us. And then there is the Royal Wood version of GHOST LIGHT. The kind that lets someone truly shine from within– raw, honest and open…. and that’s why he has named his new record after this mythical glow.

“This album for me was a full return to writing and recording simply for the joy of creation – like when I was a kid. A true letting go and allowing,” says Royal. “I jumped around from instrument to instrument in the studio; playing piano and guitar solos, bass, keys, percussion, anything and everything I could get my hands on.” In fact, Royal played on almost 90% of the record, with a few artists like Hannah Georgas and Felicity Williams (Bahamas) adding their special blend of talents along the way. It was recorded in both Los Angeles and Toronto, with Bill Lefler and Royal at the production helm.

The result is an album that exudes raw emotion and emanates a feel of the songwriters of the sixties and seventies. Without modern day studio trickery like auto-tuning and digital perfection, the album is warm, inviting and completely forthright. “I felt like on this album, I snuffed out the external Ghost Lights, and allowed my internal light to glow instead,” says Royal, “this allowed the spirits of my past, present and future into the room to guide me along my artistic path.” The first single ‘Long Way Out’ exemplifies this definitive focus of the record. It’s gripping and melodic and screams with sincerity.

Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Royal Wood has established himself as a true musical talent. Since being proclaimed “Songwriter of the Year” by iTunes, Wood has continued to evolve and hone his musical craft – maintaining an unmistakable identity while uncovering and reinventing his sound.

Wood has two albums that have debuted in the Top 30, multiple JUNO nominations and a #1 added song at Hot AC radio. His songs have been heard on high profile sync placements like Grey’s Anatomy, and Private Practice.
Wood’s new album GHOST LIGHT, featuring the single “Long Way Out” is due out April 22, 2016 via Cadence Music Group/Universal.

GHOST LIGHT marks an immense change in his life and his artistic path, delivering more and more of a letting go to the forefront of his music. The record seizes his sincerest passion for creativity and imagination. It showcases a deeper understanding of where his journey began and where he wants to take it. GHOST LIGHT has given a new meaning to the path in Wood’s career, where unabashed creativity and performance will continue to shine and cultivate his trajectory – no matter where it leads
