Lissie
Lissie
Lissie has officially announced her new live acoustic album, Live at Union Chapel, which is set to release on September 30th! The album features 13 solo acoustic songs recorded at Lissie’s Union Chapel show in London last year, including a special cover of Joni Mitchell’s “River”.
Live at Union Chapel will release on the heels of Lissie’s latest studio album, My Wild West, which dropped earlier this year via Lionboy Records and Thirty Tigers in the US and Cooking Vinyl in the UK. Her most personal album to date, My Wild West is a fitting tribute to Lissie’s life in California, from her arrival as a fresh-faced singer-songwriter to now, leaving for the Midwest wiser and more self-assured. My Wild West represents both a new beginning and a return to Lissie’s Midwestern roots. The album hit #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and Top 10 on the Independent Album chart!
One of Lissie’s most powerful tracks on the album, “Daughters” is a pro-feminist call-to-arms that took its cue from Liberian peace activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee, subject of the documentary, Pray the Devil Back to Hell. In March, Lissie partnered with charity:water in support of International Women’s Day to raise awareness surrounding the non-profit’s mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. She released a pay what you want download of her song ‘Daughters’ which raised over $4500 for clean water projects in developing countries and performed the song on CNN International to spread word of the cause.
Lissie’s two previous albums, 2010’s Catching a Tiger and 2013’s Back to Forever, both scored in the Top 20 of the U.K. charts and Top 5 in Norway, the former going gold in both countries. Stateside, the two releases hit the Top 5 in Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, peaked at #5 and #11, respectively, on the U.S. Folk tally and went Top 40 on the Indie chart. Her songs have been licensed for countless films and TV shows, and topped numerous Best Of polls. ‘The Longest Road,’ a song she wrote with DJ Morgan Page was subsequently remixed by Deadmau5 and nominated for a ‘Best Remixed Record’ Grammy.
With a career that has seen her open for renowned artist Lenny Kravitz (an early supporter), Tom Petty and even been asked to perform at Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore‘s wedding, Lissie has had a wealth of incredible experiences that have made her the confident and determined artist she is today.
The Deslondes
The Deslondes
The Deslondes are a New Orleans-based band, whose raw, stripped-down sound springs to mind a country-meets-R&B hybrid rooted partly in the Texas singer-songwriter tradition, partly on the weathered floor of a Louisiana dance hall.

The band released its debut album, The Deslondes, in 2015 on New West Records, which was praised by NPR, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and The New York Times, among others.

But the band's history starts well before that. This fall The Deslondes will reissue their debut album's predecessor, Holy Cross Blues, and will tour with original band member Matt Bell on lap steel and electric guitar. The Holy Cross Blues reissue will feature a new cover design, and will be available digitally and on CD via the Deslondes' online shop, as well as on fall tour dates.

Holy Cross Blues, released under the band's original name, The Tumbleweeds, features Deslondes' founding members Sam Doores, Dan Cutler and Riley Downing, along with then-Tumbleweeds Matt Bell and drummer Tony Fricky. Deslondes members Cameron Snyder and John James Tourville joined the Tumbleweeds lineup shortly before the group changed its name to The Deslondes.

Holy Cross Blues was recorded at Nashville's The Bomb Shelter with co-producer Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Benjamin Booker). The album reaches a bit further back into American roots history than The Deslondes' modern country-soul sound. The album features call-and-response gospel-blues ("I Got Found"), classic cowboy songs ("Throw Another Cap on the Fire") and '60s doo-wop ("Depression Blues"). Holy Cross Blues captured on tape some the band's early musical evolution, a glimpse at an elusive, mercurial band on the brink of something bigger.

The Deslondes are currently at work on their sophomore album, to be released by New West in 2017.
The Black Velvet Band
The Black Velvet Band
The Black Velvet Band performs traditional and contemporary Americana, Irish songs, folk and original compositions.

Fueled by beer—especially when it’s free—the Black Velvet Band generates a reckless energy in their performances, occasionally sending audiences into fits of polite applause, and regularly to the bar for more beer. Formed in the 1970s, the Black Velvet Band began as a good excuse for friends to get together, raise a pint or two, and make merry.

The Black Velvet Band is:

Chuck Jorgensen - Vocals, Guitar, Trombone
Dale Kilburg - Mouth Organ, Vocals
Curt Lichter - Vocals, Bass Guitar
Dan Caraway - Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin
David Manning - Vocals, Flute, Recorders, Whistles, Banjo, Autoharp
Driftless Sisters
Driftless Sisters
The Driftless Sisters are an all-female indie folk duo rooted in the "driftless" area of northeastern Iowa and northwestern Illinois. We write songs that tell stories alongside the banjo, guitar, harmonica and a variety of different instruments.

BIOGRAPHY
 
Jeremy Pinnell grew up in Northern Kentucky just south of the Ohio River, where the towns are equal parts Southern hospitality, Northern attitude, and Midwestern charm. As a kid he sang in church and learned how to play the guitar with his dad, and as he got older he figured out he wasn't just carrying a tune; he could really sing. When Jeremy sang, the room got quiet. Heads turned. at 18 he left home and began writing and singing country music. His voice made him a hometown hero but his demons kept him a secret to the world.
 
 
“OH/KY” tells the story of the next 18 years of Jeremy's life, and it's a damn good story. It has all the things people love to read about. And most of all, it's a true story that's been recorded in the most honest way possible. The album was cut live over the course of three days ina recording studio located in the small river town of Covington, KY. The group of players on the album are The 55s, a honky tonk band out of The Queen City who lay the foundation so Jeremy's voice can shine and his story can come to life.
 
 
“One of my favorite new finds.” – Sean Moeller / DAYTROTTER
 
"Kentuckian Jeremy Pinnell hits all the country-tune sweet spots. His voice is strong and a little mournful -- you can feel his ache seep through the speakers as you listen -- and the rhythm section shuffles along gently. Weepy pedal steel licks feel just right as Pinnell sings a regretful refrain of ‘I did it again,’ a familiar sentiment for any of us who've ever done a little backsliding.” - THE BLUEGRASS SITUATION
