“This is a breakup album with myself…” says Sara Watkins of her third solo record, Young in All the Wrong Ways. Writing and recording these ten intensely soul-baring songs was a means for her to process and mark the last couple years, which have been transformative. “I looked around and realized that in many ways I wasn’t who or where I wanted to be. It’s been a process of letting go and leaving behind patterns and relationships and in some cases how I’ve considered myself. What these songs are documenting is the turmoil you feel when you know something has to change and you’re grappling with what that means. It means you’re losing something and moving forward into the unknown.”

That sense of possibility infuses the songs on Young in All the Wrong Ways with a fierce and flinty resolve, which makes this her most powerful and revealing album to date. In some ways it’s a vivid distillation of the omnivorous folk-pop-bluegrass-indie-everything-else Watkins made with Nickel Creek, yet she makes audacious jumps that push against expectations in unexpected ways. These songs contain some of the heaviest moments of her career, with eruptions of thrumming B3 organ and jagged electric guitar. But it’s also quiet, vulnerable, tenderhearted. In other words, bold in all the right ways.

Recently Watkins found herself without a manager at the same time she was leaving the label that released her first two solo albums. For many artists that might be the worst possible time to enter the studio, but working without a net invigorated Watkins. It was important for her to document this time in her life when she was between professional contracts: free from the weight of obligation to anyone but herself. In that regard the tumultuous title track sounds like the first song of the rest of her life. Her backing band create a violent clamor, with Jon Brion’s sharp stabs of electric guitar punctuating the din and Jay Bellerose’s explosive drumming ripping at the seams of the song. In the chaos, however, Watkins finds clarity: “I’ve got no time to look back, so I’m going to leave you here,” she sings, with new grit and fire in her voice. “I’m going out to see about my own frontier.”

Fittingly, Watkins wrote or co-wrote every song on Young in All the Wrong ways—a first for her. Her previous albums have featured well-chosen covers that compliment her own songs and showcase her interpretive abilities. “I love singing other people’s songs, and originally I did plan to have a couple of covers on the album. But as we were recording and getting a picture of how everything fit together, it became apparent that the covers really stood apart from the story that was taking shape. I felt like I just had a little bit more to say. Everything is coming from me, so there’s a unified perspective on this album that’s different from what I’ve done before.”

Some are lonely and quiet: “Like New Year’s Day” describes in careful detail a trip out to the desert, and the low-key arrangement echoes the reassuring isolation of the southwestern landscape. Other songs are more extroverted, their volume and energy a means to reach out to friends and colleagues. “Move Me” opens as a loping pop song, but soon explodes into a walloping rocker as Watkins demands, in a voice that strains against composure, “I want you to move me!” It’s a time-stopping performance: Janis Joplin by way of Fleetwood Mac.

“That song is about relationships that have gone stagnant, how sometimes we just go about the process of making small talk in order not to stir anything up,” she says. “But it’s sad when you can’t have a meaningful conversation with people after a while. Even if they hurt you, you just want to feel something from them. You don’t relate to each other the same way as you once did, so you have to decide if you’re going to invite this person further into your life or just move on.”

Watkins knew just the right people to bring these tough-minded songs to life. She corralled longtime friend and fellow fiddler Gabe Witcher to produce, then put together a band that includes two of Witcher’s fellow Punch Brothers: guitarist Chris Eldridge and bass player Paul Kowert. Providing harmonies on the title track are Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan, Watkins’ bandmates in I’m With Her, and Jim James of My Morning Jacket provides a vocal foil on “One Last Time.” “I’ve known these guys for a long time, so there’s a personal trust as well as a musical trust. I was able to put my heart and soul into these performances, in a way that I don’t think I would be able to if I was in a room full of strangers. It allowed me to give myself over to some of these very personal thoughts that are in the lyrics.”

To say these are personal lyrics might be an understatement. They’re beyond personal, whether she’s confessing some long-held regret or gently consoling a friend. Young in All the Wrong Ways ends with “Tenderhearted,” a quietly assured song that Watkins wrote about a few of her heroes: women like her Grandmother Nordstrom who have weathered hard times with grace and have provided Watkins with examples of how to live her life. “They’re women who have endured so much yet emerged with love, strength and kindness. I remember someone saying, It’s so sad how much she’s had to go through. And I remember thinking, That’s why she’s such an incredible person. She faced all those trials and came out the other side.”

Watkins would never be so bold as to count herself in their company; instead, she aspires to follow their example. But Young in All the Wrong Ways does reveal an artist who has managed to transform her own turmoil into music that is beautiful and deeply moving: “God bless the tenderhearted,” she sings, “who let life overflow.”

We Are The Tide, the sophomore album from Portland-based band Blind Pilot, follows the band’s grassroots break-out debut, 3 Rounds and a Sound, which has sold over 50,000 units to date and was featured in NPR’s “Best Music of 2008” roundup. Recorded at Type Foundry in Portland, OR during the spring of 2011, the new album was produced by the band and Skyler Norwood and mixed by Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket). Blind Pilot began in 2007 when Israel (vocals, guitar) and Ryan (drums) embarked on a West Coast bicycle tour playing mostly to unfamiliar listeners at small-town venues. The band now exists as a 6-piece ensemble featuring fellow Oregonians Luke Ydstie (upright bass, backing vocals), Kati Claborn (banjo, dulcimer, backing vocals), Ian Krist (vibraphones) and Dave Jorgensen (keyboards, trumpet). In the years since its inception, the band has toured with various world-renowned musicians including The Decemberists, Josh Ritter, The Low Anthem, Laura Viers and Andrew Bird and have appeared at the Sasquatch! Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and the Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival. Additionally, multiple music placements have been confirmed in episodes of “Chuck,” “Covert Affairs” and “One Tree Hill.”

Reggae's first Grammy-winning band Black Uhuru Official play New Mountain Asheville on Monday, September 26th.Tickets go on sale Friday, August 12 at 11am$10 Advance // $15 Day of ShowThe roots of BLACK UHURU were formed in Kingston Jamaica's Waterhouse district also known as "Firehouse" in the early 60′s. Though considered to be one of Jamaica's toughest neighborhoods it's home to several other reggae singers and musicians. It was where Duckie Simpson grew up and learned to sing from boyhood friends Winston "Pipe" Matthews and Lloyd "Bread" McDonald of Wailing Souls and Bob Marley. He recorded four tracks with Wailing Souls before forming his own group.The original Uhuru's (Swahili for freedom) were Derrick "Duckie" Simpson, Euvin "Don Carlos" Spencer and Rudolph "Garth" Dennis. They only recorded a few singles "Folk Songs" "Time Is On Our Side" and "Slow Coach" before separating. Don went solo and Garth joined Wailing Souls.Duckie reformed the group adding Michael Rose & Errol "Tarzan" Nelson, both from Waterhouse. They recorded their debut album "Love Crises" in 1977 at Prince Jammy's famous studio in Waterhouse on St. Lucia Road. It was later re-released as "Black Sounds Of Freedom". Errol later left to join The Jayes. He was soon replaced by American female singer & dancer Sandra "Puma" Jones. They teamed up with drummer Sly Dunbar and bass player Robbie Shakespeare. Together they developed a musical style full of deep bass thumps, loud drum slaps, sharp keyboards, long instrumentals with guitar riffs, whirly back round noises, echos and the signature"woh oh oh's" creating they're "classic" sound. Producing hits like "I Love King Sellassie, "'Shine Eye Gals", "General Penitentary" and "What is Life".BLACK UHURU released the albums Red, Chill Out, Sensemila and Guess Who's Coming To Dinner and began to tour the world bringing them to international audiences. It was during this period they started to gain rapid popularity. They opened live shows for the Rolling Stones and the Police. They began to work with other well accomplished producers and musicians. Keith Richards played guitar for the "Shine Eye Gal" track. Dennis Brown "The Crown Prince of Reggae" produced the tracks "Rent Man" and Wood For My Fire". The track" Spongi Reggae" appeared on an episode of The Bill Cosby Show and "Party in Session" in the movie 1980′s North Shore. BLACK UHURU made reggae history when they won the first ever Grammy Award for reggae music in 1984 for the album Anthem Shortly after the grammy Michael Rose went solo. Another Waterhouse resident named Delroy "Junior" Reid became the new lead singer. They released two albums Brutal and Positive. The Brutal album was nominated for a grammy. They filmed three music videos for the tracks "Fire City" "Brutal", and "Great Train Robbery", that track also played on a popular video game Grand Theft Auto. Sadly in 1990, due to ill health, Sanda "Puma" Jones passed away of cancer. Junior Reid shortly went solo.Then the original three re-united. They released four albums Now, Iron Storm, Mystical Truth and Strong. Each album was nominated for grammy. They made an award winning music video for the track "Tip Of The Iceberg" featuring rap star Ice-T in 1992. Eventually splitting up again. Carlos & Dennis left again & Duckie stayed again. This time there was a lawsuit brought amongst the group over the band's legal rights in Los Angeles county court. Derrick Simpson won.As the new melenium approached there came a new lead singer yet again from Waterhouse named Andrew "Bee's" Beckford. They released two albums. Unification was produced by King Jammy & Dynasty was produced by Fitzroy Francis & Duckie. They went on a worldwide tour featuring Sly and Robbie and had the famous producer Scientist as its road engineer. Andrew Bee's then went solo.In 2007 Duckie & Michael Rose reunited after twenty years. They performed in Jamaica and did one international tour and released the single "Dollars". In 2011 Duckie reunited with Andrew Bee's after ten years. He added female backing vocalist Kaye Star and began touring again performing in South America & America.BLACK UHURU recently performed in a Broadway Musical. The red carpeted event "Loving the Silent Tears: A New Msuical" premiered October 27th 2012 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles Ca. They were invited to represent reggae music and performed a new track "Make A Deal". And in Las Vegas Nevada BLACK UHURU was recently honored for its contribution to the entertainment industry. August 31st if now officially "Black Uhuru Day" in the city of Las Vegas.BLACK UHURU's long success has allowed them to become ambassadors of reggae while earning several achievements in the music industry. With 14 full length albums, 7 instrumental dub albums, and 4 live albums they have the highest record sales in reggae music behind Bob Marley. The album Red was voted #23 for Rolling Stone's list of "100 Greatest Albums of the 1980′s. Aside from winning the first reggae grammy they have been nominated 5 more times. They are the only reggae group to have won the Diamond Awards of Excellence in 1994.Despite all of BLACK UHURU's change of different singers and musicians the one thing that has always remained is Derrick "Duckie" Simpson. Much respect to a legendary figure for Reggae Music. The group is presently working on releasing a new album soon to come. It features Duckie on lead.

It was where Duckie Simpson grew up and learned to sing from boyhood friends Winston "Pipe" Matthews and Lloyd "Bread" McDonald of Wailing Souls and Bob Marley. He recorded four tracks with Wailing Souls before forming his own group.The original Uhuru's (Swahili for freedom) were Derrick "Duckie" Simpson, Euvin "Don Carlos" Spencer and Rudolph "Garth" Dennis. They only recorded a few singles "Folk Songs" "Time Is On Our Side" and "Slow Coach" before separating. Don went solo and Garth joined Wailing Souls.Duckie reformed the group adding Michael Rose & Errol "Tarzan" Nelson, both from Waterhouse. They recorded their debut album "Love Crises" in 1977 at Prince Jammy's famous studio in Waterhouse on St. Lucia Road. It was later re-released as "Black Sounds Of Freedom". Errol later left to join The Jayes. He was soon replaced by American female singer & dancer Sandra "Puma" Jones. They teamed up with drummer Sly Dunbar and bass player Robbie Shakespeare. Together they developed a musical style full of deep bass thumps, loud drum slaps, sharp keyboards, long instrumentals with guitar riffs, whirly back round noises, echos and the signature"woh oh oh's" creating they're "classic" sound. Producing hits like "I Love King Sellassie, "'Shine Eye Gals", "General Penitentary" and "What is Life".BLACK UHURU released the albums Red, Chill Out, Sensemila and Guess Who's Coming To Dinner and began to tour the world bringing them to international audiences. It was during this period they started to gain rapid popularity. They opened live shows for the Rolling Stones and the Police. They began to work with other well accomplished producers and musicians. Keith Richards played guitar for the "Shine Eye Gal" track. Dennis Brown "The Crown Prince of Reggae" produced the tracks "Rent Man" and Wood For My Fire". The track" Spongi Reggae" appeared on an episode of The Bill Cosby Show and "Party in Session" in the movie 1980s North Shore. BLACK UHURU made reggae history when they won the first ever Grammy Award for reggae music in 1984 for the album Anthem Shortly after the grammy Michael Rose went solo. Another Waterhouse resident named Delroy "Junior" Reid became the new lead singer. They released two albums Brutal and Positive. The Brutal album was nominated for a grammy. They filmed three music videos for the tracks "Fire City" "Brutal", and "Great Train Robbery", that track also played on a popular video game Grand Theft Auto. Sadly in 1990, due to ill health, Sanda "Puma" Jones passed away of cancer. Junior Reid shortly went solo.Then the original three re-united. They released four albums Now, Iron Storm, Mystical Truth and Strong. Each album was nominated for grammy. They made an award winning music video for the track "Tip Of The Iceberg" featuring rap star Ice-T in 1992. Eventually splitting up again. Carlos & Dennis left again & Duckie stayed again. This time there was a lawsuit brought amongst the group over the band's legal rights in Los Angeles county court. Derrick Simpson won.As the new melenium approached there came a new lead singer yet again from Waterhouse named Andrew "Bee's" Beckford. They released two albums. Unification was produced by King Jammy & Dynasty was produced by Fitzroy Francis & Duckie. They went on a worldwide tour featuring Sly and Robbie and had the famous producer Scientist as its road engineer. Andrew Bee's then went solo.In 2007 Duckie & Michael Rose reunited after twenty years. They performed in Jamaica and did one international tour and released the single "Dollars". In 2011 Duckie reunited with Andrew Bee's after ten years. He added female backing vocalist Kaye Star and began touring again performing in South America & America.BLACK UHURU recently performed in a Broadway Musical. The red carpeted event "Loving the Silent Tears: A New Msuical" premiered October 27th 2012 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles Ca. They were invited to represent reggae music and performed a new track "Make A Deal". And in Las Vegas Nevada BLACK UHURU was recently honored for its contribution to the entertainment industry. August 31st if now officially "Black Uhuru Day" in the city of Las Vegas.BLACK UHURU's long success has allowed them to become ambassadors of reggae while earning several achievements in the music industry. With 14 full length albums, 7 instrumental dub albums, and 4 live albums they have the highest record sales in reggae music behind Bob Marley. The album Red was voted #23 for Rolling Stone's list of "100 Greatest Albums of the 1980s. Aside from winning the first reggae grammy they have been nominated 5 more times. They are the only reggae group to have won the Diamond Awards of Excellence in 1994.Despite all of BLACK UHURU's change of different singers and musicians the one thing that has always remained is Derrick "Duckie" Simpson. Much respect to a legendary figure for Reggae Music. The group is presently working on releasing a new album soon to come. It features Duckie on lead.

At ten years old, Jean-Philip Grobler was a part of history. Along with the rest of the prestigious Drakensberg Boys Choir, he found himself on the field of Cape Town’s Newlands Stadium in his native South Africa, singing the national anthem in front of Nelson Mandela (and the entire country) at the opening of the 1995 rugby World Cup. Depicted in the film Invictus, starring Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman, the matches represented South Africa’s first international play since the fall of apartheid, as well as Mandela’s ambitious plan for uniting a deeply divided nation.

“I was still really young at that point, so I don’t think that I fully understood the gravity of it,” remembers Grobler, who got his first taste of touring internationally with the mixed-race choir. “We had just come out of apartheid and the mood of the country was still frayed, but somehow Mandela understood this World Cup would be an opportunity to bring the country together, and this almost impossible dream of South Africa becoming a rainbow nation seemed possible for the first time. It was such an emotional moment.”

Emotional moments are Grobler’s specialty. Under the name St. Lucia, he crafts the kind of high-energy, artful pop that tugs at the heartstrings as it pulls you onto the dance floor, and in four short years, he’s amassed a lifetime of highlights: signing with Columbia Records; selling out multiple nights at Terminal 5 in his adopted hometown of NYC; performing at major festivals from Lollapalooza to the main stage at Coachella; touring with stars like Ellie Goulding and Two Door Cinema Club; landing his songs in national campaigns from Victoria’s Secret to Taco Bell; producing the debut LP for friends and label-mates HAERTS; and collaborating on remixes for peers like Passion Pit, Charli XCX, and Foster The People.
