Clint Black is back. The multi-million selling country mega-star is releasing On Purpose, his first full-length album of new songs in a decade and he’s doing it on his own terms. Black’s On Purpose compiles a strikingly diverse group of his self-produced songs. His ballads “Only One Way to Live,”“Stay Gone,”“Breathing Air”and “The Last Day” have never cut deeper, while his spirited “Beer”and “Better and Worse” are among the most upbeat songs he has ever crafted. “Time For That,”“Doing It Now For Love”and “Summertime Song” are catchy examples of how groove-soaked his music can be.

WHERE: The Altamont Theatre, 18 Church St, AshevilleWHEN: Thursday September 21, 2017DOORS: 7pm | SHOW: 8pmGENRE:  americana / singer-songwriterAGES: all agesSEATS: seated general admissionTICKETS: $10 adv. / $12 d.o.s. / $15 VIP (guaranteed seat in 1st 3 rows)WEB LISTINGSean McConnell:WEBSITEHEAR SOME MUSICSEE A VIDEO"From a very young age, I just knew that I was gonna spend my life making music," Sean McConnell states. "I never really questioned it, so I just forged ahead and didn't let anything stop me."Although his self-titled new Rounder album will serve as his introduction to many listeners, the personable young artist is actually a seasoned, distinctive songwriter and an experienced performer with a quartet of D.I.Y. indie releases to his credit. Having built a substantial grass-roots fan base through tireless touring and old-fashioned hard work, McConnell is primed for a mainstream breakthrough.Sean McConnell demonstrates exactly why McConnell has already won such a devoted audience. He writes vivid, forthright, effortlessly catchy songs whose incisive melodic craft is matched by their resonant emotional insight. Such instantly memorable tunes as "Holy Days," "Beautiful Rose," "Bottom of the Sea" and "Best We've Ever Been" are both catchy and personally charged, conveying an unmistakable sense of personal experience while exploring universal truths."This record's a bit of a step for me," McConnell asserts. "It's a real storyteller record, and it's pretty autobiographical. I'm learning how to be more honest and understated in my writing, and I wanted to match that sonically and vocally. When I look at this collection of songs, I see a lot of nostalgia, and looking back on sacred moments. I'm kind of nostalgic and reflective by nature."McConnell recorded the album in his adopted hometown of Nashville with producers Jason Lehning and Ian Fitchuk, who also contributed keyboards and drums, respectively. The recording took place prior to McConnell signing with Rounder, with the artist financing the sessions himself."This project started," he explains, "when I went to a cabin by myself for a week, with the intention of writing some songs. In that week, I wrote about half of the songs on the record, and I could see the thread of what this record was gonna be. That was exciting for me, because it normally takes me a year to find an album's worth of songs that belong together. The whole recording process was really fun and liberating, and the energy in the studio was really positive."Songwriting and music-making have been a part of Sean McConnell's life for as long as he can remember. "My mom was a singer and my dad was a guitar player and songwriter," he notes. "They'd play in coffeehouses and I'd go along and watch them perform, and seeing that lifestyle showed me that music was an option. And seeing my dad painstakingly writing songs had a huge influence on me, and gave me license to feel like I could enter into that world."By the age of ten, he had become proficient on guitar and was writing his first songs. "I fell in love with the instrument first," McConnell recalls. "Learning guitar gave me a feeling of uncharted territory laid out in front of me. And as I got better on guitar, the songs started to come naturally. At around the same time, we moved from Massachusetts to Georgia, and the first song I wrote was about the feeling of leaving the familiar and feeling lost in a new place. Music gave me a focus and became an emotional outlet for me."His supportive family background helped to instill the confidence and drive to pursue his muse early on. "I started playing in middle school, doing any gig I could get just to get my chops up," he says. "By high school, I would be doing local gigs and really promoting them, bringing out a couple hundred kids to my shows a few times a month and starting to make a decent living at it. That made me think that maybe I could do this in other towns. So I started traveling around the southeast a little bit, and there was always enough progress to take things to the next level. While I was in college, I did a lot of college touring, just me driving all over the United States in a Toyota Corolla. It was hard work, but it showed me that I could do it."McConnell was just 15 when he self-released his first album, Faces, in 2000. Followed by 2001's Here In The Lost and Found, 2004's 200 Orange Street, 2006's Cold Black Sky, 2007's Tell The Truth, 2008's The Walk Around EP, 2010's Saints, Thieves and Liars, 2012's Midland and the 2014 EP The B Side Session."I had a guitar teacher in Atlanta who had a home studio, and he was the first one to say 'Hey, you should make a record,'" he says. "If I go back and listen to that first record now, the songs are kind of crude, but at the same time there's a directness about them that I like. My writing has evolved since then, but at the same time I've tried to hold on to some of that directness.""I'm really attracted to songwriters who just put it out there honestly, and I feel like I'm getting back to basics and expressing things in a simple, direct way on the new album," he continues. "I'm just trying to learn how to be a more honest storyteller, trying to get my mind in a place where I'm not actually thinking and the music's just kind of happening naturally. When I read interviews with songwriters that I admire, they always say that the best songs are the ones that just kind of happen, like they're operating from the unconscious. That's a place I want to get to."Having spent much of his life honing his craft and paying his dues, Sean McConnell is eager to launch the next chapter of his career."I kind of feel like I've been in a really long boot camp," he concludes. "I'm really grateful for that, because I feel like I've gained enough experience to know the deal and be prepared for anything. I'm excited to see where the next part of the journey takes me."

18+ to Attend | $10 ADV / $15 DOSHeadliner: Craig Campbell CRAIG CAMPBELL Craig Campbell has never taken a backseat to anything. He’s certainly never taken a backseat in his career as one of Country’s brightest rising stars who launched onto the Country music scene in 2011 and continues to exist in a perfect sweet spot between tradition and modernity.  That doesn't mean the road to five consecutive charted hits and over a half million downloads has always been easy. There have been bumps along the way for the Georgia-born artist, on his path from the small town of Lyons to Nashville's Music Row. But through hits like "Keep Them Kisses Comin’," "Fish" and "Family Man," and countless shows, he's kept his eyes on his mission – to bring his fans true country music with a spin all his own, through timeless songs that tell his life story. And with his forthcoming debut project on RED BOW Records – flag-shipped by the earnest “Outskirts of Heaven,” which was co-written by Campbell – he is ready to share the next chapter: where that timelessness meets the here and now.  "There are a lot of sides to me that people haven’t yet seen," he says, currently at work on his third and most versatile record. "You can expect some great music with a little more energy, and a lot more fire."

Their goal is to reproduce the classic, cosmic sound of the legendary band’s original studio recordings in a live setting. The focus of their repertoire is on the seven albums of the Moodies’ classic period, spanning from Days of Future Passed to Seventh Sojourn. They cover most of the well known hits as well as some of the more obscure gems from that era.The band features founding member, Garry Byrne, on keyboard sounds, which includes digital samples of Mike Pinder’s Mellotron, an instrument that was a major characteristic part of The Moody Blues’ sound. On lead vocals, backing vocals and electric bass is Sherman Hoover, who also performs with The Billy Jonas Band and has been playing at Jubilee services for many years.Todd Byington also sings lead vocals and backing vocals while strumming and picking the acoustic guitar. Doubling on acoustic guitar and backing vocals and rocking out on the lead guitar parts is Paul Quick of the local duo, QuickChester. James Wilson plays the drums on an electronic drum kit, which allows him to program sounds that match the original drummer’s palette. Kate Barber alternates between playing the flute and the tambourine and joins in on backing vocals.

Genre: FunkCover: $12.00 ADV // $15.00 DOSShow: 10PM (9PM Doors)Ages: 21+Big Sam's Funky NationNoladelic PowerFunk. That’s the sound BIG SAM’S FUNKY NATION have been whipping up for more than a decade. It’s high-energy music that mixes funk, rock & roll, hip-hop, and jazz into the same pot, gluing everything together with the brassy influence — and heavy grooves — of New Orleans.From national performances at Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits, to hometown appearances at Voodoo Fest and Jazz Fest, Big Sam’s Funky Nation have built their reputation onstage. The band’s live performances are legendary, filled with blasts of brass, bursts of electric guitar, and the charisma of Big Sam, a frontman who sings, plays, dances, and involves the audience in everything he does. You don’t just watch a Funky Nation show. You become part of the show, singing along with Big Sam whenever he demands a call-and-response.A native of New Orleans, Big Sam first rose to fame as a member of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, whose touring schedule kept the young trombonist on the road for 300 days a year. The group performed with bands from all genres, backing up Widespread Panic one minute before sharing the stage with Dave Matthews Band the next. A fan of diverse bands like Parliament Funkadelic, Jimi Hendrix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Living Colour, and Prince, Big Sam loved the variety that Dirty Dozen Brass Band offered. He wanted to front his own group, though. He needed to sing, to engage the crowd, to write his own songs. Inspired to chase down that dream, he formed Big Sam’s Funky Nation, reaching out to some of his favorite players from around the Big Easy — including Andrew “Da Phessa” Bayham, Jerry “Jblakk” Henderson, Alfred Jordan and Keenan McRae — to create his own super-group.“We don’t cater to one demographic,” says Big Sam, rattling off a list of jam band festivals, jazz shows, rock clubs, and funk gigs that his band has played since 2007. “We play music for everybody. It’s not just funk; that’s the foundation, but the music goes from funk to rock to wild jazz. It’s music about love and partying. Everyone can get down with that.”web: http://www.bigsamsfunkynation.com/vid: https://youtu.be/5Nuv9Vtrpgc

Born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida by musical parents, Stephen Evans naturally had the desire to perform music at an early age. He began by forcing his friends to watch him perform to records of his dads band, Four Saints. Stephen eventually learned to play the trumpet in various school bands, sang in the choir, and performed in musicals which increased his passion. Inspired by his brother, Scot Evans, and his regional success in the band, Floating Men, Stephen started his own rock band, Mean Season, in the late 80s where he began honing his songwriting skills on the guitar. After a few years of local success and radio play in Tallahassee, FL, his band moved to Atlanta, GA to try and develop into something bigger. Unfortunately, the band broke up and left Stephen to try his hand at performing solo around Atlanta. Soon the jammed highways of the big city drove him to the beautiful mountain town of Asheville, NC in 1996, where he quickly began soaking in the creative influence of his amazing surroundings. After many years of vacillating between being a professional musician and building a nest in Asheville, Stephen is finally focused on his love for creating and performing music.In June of 2015, Stephen finally released his debut CD Something to Bleed with his band, The True Grits. The True Grits, friends hes known since the early 2000s, are Brian Shoemaker (bass/lead guitar/backing vocals), Sam Hess (drums), and Woodstock (mandolin). They are on Something to Bleed along with special guests Halli Anderson of River Whyless (violin/backing vocals), his brother, Scot Evans of Floating Men (bass on 1000 Roses), and his mother, Barbara Evans (backing vocals on Sound). After performing around Asheville and parts of the Southeast solo and with the band in support of the 2015 release, Stephen Evans & The True Grits are releasing the new EP, Under A Bridge in late September. The record will feature 5 songs of folk rock, and will be available online and on CD. Meanwhile, look for performances by the band and Stephen all around the Southeast.

with Kathryn Dean
When David Cook moved to Nashville in 2012, the expectation was that this singer-songwriter from the Heartland would emphasize the rootsy side of his sensibility, and sure enough, he had immediate success co-writing country tunes, including the Top-20 single Kiss You Tonight for David Nail in 2014. But new album Digital Vein is something else entirely, with Cooks powerful voice and dynamic guitar work knifing through vibrant soundscapes that boldly juxtapose man-made grooves and electronic textures.Working in Nashville opened me up creatively to trying different things, Cook explains. Writing for country acts has been freeing in the sense that I can bring out that side of my creativity, and it brought some freshness to the other side of what I like to do. So I ran with it, going into the creative process with the blinders off. I just wanted to try things, and there was no formula. Honestly, I didnt even know if I was gonna make another record; I decided to just write and have fun and see what happens.As an experiment, Cook applied what hed learned from working with Music City craftsmen in that time-honored narrative vein to the material he was writing for his own use. It was fun and a new challenge to try to attack my own songwriting in that way, he begins, then says with a laugh, In hindsight, what the hell was I thinking trying to take this on? But it ended up being an amazing process, and it led to a record that Id put up there with my prouder moments.Asked why he decided to title the album Digital Vein, Cook explains, My last independent record, back in 2006, was Analog Heart, and after my major-label journey, with circumstances being what they are, this record is certainly a progression. I dont think its very much like Analog Heart at all, but the process of putting it together was similar in the sense that I worked with a very small team, and I put a lot of myself into every aspect of it. It felt like a throwback in that regard, so I wanted the two records to be connected, if only in name.Analog Heart and Digital Vein bookend a tumultuous decade in Cooks life and career, as, after fronting a Kansas City-based bar band for 10 years (Wed be lucky to get 10 people, he quips, and most of them would be family members), he accompanied his younger brother Andrew to auditions for American Idol, auditioned himself on a whim and wound up winning the competition in 2008. Released later that year, his self-titled major label debut album sold 1.5 million copies, and though the follow-up, 2011s This Loud Morning, debuted in the Top 10, he wound up as an indie artist once again. As one door closed, another opened, and Cook forged a new career as a songwriter after moving to Nashville in 2012, but he continued to tour as well, as his personal songbook grew thicker. In 2014, he began the process that led to the recording of Digital Vein.Cook recorded the new album in his home studio, working with his longtime friend and onetime bandmate Andy Skib, who engineered, and the rhythm section from his touring band, playing the bulk of the parts himself. The whole thing, he says, was an experiment to see if (A) I could make a record this way, and (B) if I could enjoy doing it this way. Im a control freak, and to have this level of control has been empowering. It was definitely a different process for me, but I cant recall ever having more fun making a record.The project was funded in part by contributions from fans through a highly successful PledgeMusic campaign. Weve had an awesome experience with PledgeMusic, says Cook. The best part is that fans have become a bigger part of the process than in records past. The hope is that, by continuing to build those relationships, well be able to hit the ground running, and ultimately get this music into more peoples ears. I was a little apprehensive about that dynamic at first, but it turns out that its a great way to humanize yourself to your audience. Its nice to tear down that wall, because the end game is that people hopefully will feel more connected to the humanity in the record.Humanity pulses through Digital Vein, from impassioned opener Heartbeat to the haunting metaphysical question of Where Do We Go. On the first single, the rocking Criminals, written with Nashville song-smith Blair Daly, Cook presents his own take on the classic theme of lovers on the run, a notion that has long transfixed the American consciousness, from Bonnie and Clyde to Bruce Springsteen. We started with a Wallflowers One Headlight kind of groove and went down that path, Cook points out. Its a story thats been told before for sure, the idea of young lovers trying to beat the odds its you against the world, and youre gonna make it work, no matter what. Thats what I wanted the cover of this book to look like.Theres a duality on the album between ardently devotional love songs and others shot through with a dark undercurrent, enabling Cooks subtly intense cover of the Chris Isaak classic Wicked Game to function not simply as a vocal showcase but also as a thematic link between these two vectors.Everybody goes through experiences of love and loss, and Im no different, says Cook. In that regard, its natural to pull from that database for inspiration. But what I enjoyed the most was pulling from outside sources, like reading a newspaper article or seeing a painting that just hits a nerve. There are songs on this record that have to do with subject matter that Ive never personally experienced, but things that have inspired me all the same. When I pay attention to the peripherals, it leads to records like this one.Another highlight, the languid yet propulsive Better Than Me, was written by Chase Foster, but Cook fully inhabits it, delivering the self-lacerating lyric knowingly and with beguiling nuance. Killer song, says Cook. It had been on my radar for a couple years, and we were finally able to get it cut.The albums most personal song is the poignant Home Movies. As Cook recalls, Not too long ago, I had the chance to look over old photos with my family, and that brought back memories of my brother Adam. The experience got me in a certain mindset, and I consciously wrote that song about growing up and spending time with my older brother, who passed away of brain cancer in 2009. Hes been a part of every record Ive made, but with Home Movies especially, theres a tangible aspect.Since Adams death, David has devoted himself to fighting the disease, to the extent that philanthropy is now as important to him as his music. I think I would have been involved either way, he says. But seeing what he went through, and what his wife and his kids all went through, touched me deeply. And thats another avenue where the fans have been insane. We crossed the million-dollar threshold last December, which is unfathomable to me still. Records are going to sell or not sell, but raising that money for cancer research puts everything in perspective it makes you realize what really matters.Cook becomes reflective as he looks back on his journey, with its ecstatic highs and devastating lows. I have no regrets, he says of his Idol experience. It has ultimately let me do some amazing things in the last seven years, culminating in this record. Who knows where Id be right now if werent for all that. Prior to the show, I was tending bar to pay the rent, and I was a really bad bartender. So to have the resources that I have now to be able to make a record this way its huge. Ive still got a platform and an avenue that most dont. So, yeah, no regrets.Redemption is a weird term, he continues, but I dont think thats really what this record is. I see it as a different chapter. The best way I can sum it up is that, succeed or fail, Im going to fall on my own sword which is nerve-racking as hell, but its also super-exciting, and I wouldnt have it any other way. It may sound like lip service to say it, but I really do love this record, and if I loved it any less, I dont know that Id be putting it out. Im treating this record like this is it. Every album from here on out could be the last one, so Id better swing for the fences, and thats what we did on this one.

Craig Brown Band

LinksOne of Detroit’s most beloved and powerful musicians has gone solo. Well, solo in the sense that he’s put a dynamite musical act together and called it Craig Brown Band. The debut full-length album, The Lucky Ones Forget, was recorded almost live at Brown Rice Studio with Warren Defever (His Name Is Alive)—and is now available on Third Man Records. It’s a long-player filled with songs about heartbreak, fishing and vans—built upon the work of those daring punks of yore who embraced country music (Replacements, Meat Puppets, Tom Petty, et al). And it’s one of 2017’s must-hear records.

Quick rewind. For years, Craig Brown shared manic lead vocals and guitar squealies in the completely unhinged punk band, Terrible Twos (Urinal Cake Records). He’s gigged with King Tuff (Sub Pop) and shredded with local Detroit acts the Brownstown Gals and the Mahonies. He concurrently batters with New Jersey’s Liquor Store—a band so notorious, they sell their own brand of switchblades at the merch table, defying all sorts of local ordinances.

Whatever the band and whatever the avenue, Craig brings effortless musicianship and his damaged honkey-tonk howl to the mix. He has the ability to shred licks hotter and tastier than the Tres Hombres gatefold while breaking your heart with his crestfallen tunes. And despite being in bands for years, he’s just beginning to amaze with his eclectic and accomplished, beyond-pro-as-fuck guitar playing and songwriting abilities.

Live, the Craig Brown Band might look like a pile of dirty clothes but deliver a surprisingly polished and tuneful sound that will have even the gnarliest of disenfranchised young people looking up from their phones—for at least a few tunes, anyway. The good ol’ boys in the band, Eric, Perry and Young Andrew hold down the bedraggled hillbilly-deluxe-meets-dive-bar-jukebox classic rock, offset by the pitch-perfect honeyed harmonies of the Drinkard sisters, Caitlin and Bonnie. Just the kind of band you scratch your head to in the beginning but rave to your friends about how much they fucking rule in the end.

WHERE: The Altamont Theatre, 18 Church St, AshevilleWHEN: Thursday September 28, 2017DOORS: 7pm | SHOW: 8pmGENRE: country / roots rockAGES: all agesSEATS: seated general admissionTICKETS: $15 adv. / $18 d.o.s. / $25 VIP (guaranteed seat in 1st 3 rows)WEB LISTING: http://thealtamonttheatre.com/event/SecretThe Secret Sisters:WEBSITEHEAR SOME MUSICSEE A VIDEOThere are two ways of handling a dangerous, raging river: you can surrender and let it carry you away, or you can swim against the flow. For The Secret Sisters, there was a point after the release of their last record when they could have chosen to do neither – instead, sinking to the bottom as the weight of the world washed away their dreams. They went from touring with Bob Dylan to losing their label, purging their team, filing bankruptcy and almost permanently trading harmonies for housecleaning. But there’s a mythical pull to music that kept sisters Laura and Lydia Rogers moving forward, and they came out with a biting and beautiful third LP, produced by Brandi Carlile, You Don’t Own Me Anymore. Their first as New West signees, it’s a document of hardship and redemption, of pushing forward when it would be so much easier to drown in grief. And it’s a story about how passion and pure artistry can be the strongest sort of salvation – how art is left, like perfect grains of sand, when everything else has washed away.“We are more proud of these songs than we have ever been,” says Laura. “Some of the songs are a little more cryptic, but some of them are very pointed and honest and direct. And we had to let those songs happen. We had to let ourselves be angry again, and bring up things we wanted to forget.” It certainly would have been easier to just try and forget the past few years of The Secret Sisters’ life. After their second album, Put Your Needle Down, didn’t perform according to their label’s expectations – however unrealistic they were in this day and age – the duo was dropped, leaving them with barely enough money to stay on the road and keep making music. So they retreated home to Alabama, worn and weary from experiencing the devilish side of the industry first-hand, scraping together whatever they could while trying to embrace what seemed to be a future without music. But when Carlile – someone whom The Secret Sisters have admired for years and one of our truest talents – offered to produce their record, it made them think that a future was possible. Soon, a PledgeMusic campaign that completely exceeded their hopes and dreams made it fiscally so.“It was a nightmare that every day seemed to worsen,” says Laura. “We went through things we literally never thought we would come out of. “Adds Lydia, “it had just gotten so bad, the only option was to file bankruptcy.”Even once Carlile gave The Secret Sisters some renewed hope, things weren’t instantly easy: what they went through left huge, gaping wounds that needed to heal before they could pour themselves into songwriting. But when they did, everything changed. Laura and Lydia found themselves in a more creative and honest space than ever, with their experiences flowing and morphing into collective tales of triumph, rage and the indefatigable human spirit. The resulting songs of You Don’t Own Me Anymore are about life when everything you think defines you is stripped away: from “The Damage,” as gorgeous as it is haunting, that speaks directly to those that did them wrong, to the first single “Tennessee River Runs Low,” that imagines the willful flow of a powerful river. These are journeys as poetic as they are confessional, always anchored by the timeless, crystalline ring of Laura and Lydia’s voices in sweet unison.“This record is deeply personal because of what we endured,” says Lydia. “But it’s important as a songwriter and artist to talk about the times things weren’t great. This is a hard business, and it’s not all roses and rainbows. What we came out with is more honest than ever, and we couldn’t help that a lot of it is about the darkness.”In the beginning, before that darkness moved in, things were a little like rainbows and roses for the sisters, who rose quickly through the music universe. An open audition in Nashville in 2009 lead them to a major label deal and a debut record produced by T Bone Burnett and Dave Cobb, followed by a tour with Levon Helm and Ray LaMontagne, a feat for any artist, let alone two that had just gotten started. From there, they opened for the likes of Dylan, Willie Nelson and Paul Simon, appeared on numerous late night shows and released a second album with Burnett. But the tides turned quickly – things can change in an instant, both for the good, and the bad. And when the clouds started to lift, Carlile was there to help usher in the sunshine.“Brandi, Phil, and Tim had never produced a record for anybody but themselves,” says Laura about their experience in the studio. “We are all artists, and we could include our opinions. I felt like everyone was an equal force in the room. It is often lost on producers that you actually have to go perform your song on a stage – it’s easy to get so caught up on the production that you don’t discuss how this all will translate – but Brandi innately understood that.” The end product finds the sisters taking their music to new places, with soulful, gospel grooves and stirring vocal deliveries that never seek perfection over power. From murder ballads to skewering roasts, it’s a guidebook for survival.After all, sometimes you have to lose everything to get a renewed version in return. Like the Tennessee River they sing about, only after a drought does fresh, new water come rushing in. The same could be said for The Secret Sisters, who were scraped dry and put through hell, coming out with their finest record, You Don’t Own Me Anymore. “The only way we could have completely healed was to have written an entire record,” says Laura. “I think we were just in the wrong parts of the machine,” says her sister. “We feel like we have learned where not to be, and where to go.” And that’s to never let anyone or anything own them again.

with Secret Weapons
Jukebox the Ghost is a band of musical survivors, a decade-strong trio that has carefully considered how to make a lasting statement while grinding out more than 150 shows a year. With their new self-titled album, Jukebox the Ghost unmistakably makes that statementin the form of a big, lovable pop record. Jukebox the Ghost may be the tortoise in the race, but theyve slowly, steadily made their way to the top.Ben Thornewill, Tommy Siegel and Jesse Kristin had tossed around a few names for the album title between themselves but none expressed the confidence they had in the new material as much Jukebox the Ghost. Everything is clicking on Jukebox the Ghost: the intricate rock arrangements are juxtaposed with juicy sing-along choruses, and the whip-smart, searingly honest lyrics are delivered with beaming confidence and irresistible warmth. By looking at themselves in the mirrorThornewill calls the album a self-evaluation, while Siegel describes it as a reinvention Jukebox the Ghost has come up with its strongest album to date, and easily its most accessible.Jukebox the Ghost was released on October 21, 2014 on Yep Roc Records. Later that year, after hearing The Great Unknown in a movie trailer for 2014s hit The Judge, Martin Kierszenbaums daughter brought the bands new record to his attention, and in early 2015 he signed the band to Cherrytree Records, his successful imprint known for releasing juggernaut pop artists like Ellie Goulding, Disclosure, Feist, and more. Cherrytree will reissue the self-titled album with a special bonus disc in February of 2015.After the work and care we put into the songs, in choosing them and arranging them, by the time it was finished, we all came around to feeling like this record is who we are, says pianist-vocalist Thornewill.Instead of hurrying through the follow-up to 2012s Safe Travels, the trio took its time piecing the track list of Jukebox the Ghost together, coming up with 50 demos over a 10-month period. There was only one goal, and it was uncompromising: to mine the best songs of the groups career.Even after the song selection was done, we really took a closer eye at the arrangements than ever, Siegel says. As a result, the instrumentation is a pretty big departure from anything weve done before. We tried to step outside of the guitar-drums-piano box and do whatever textures seemed to fit for each individual song.Jukebox the Ghost is the bands fourth album, its second produced by Dan Romer (A Great Big World, Ingrid Michaelson), and its first with additional production by Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, fun.). Unleashing more catchy melodies in its first six tracks than one might expect to hear from a career pop artists entire catalogue, there is ample proof on Jukebox the Ghost of how fierce the paired songwriting powerhouse that is Ben Thornewill and Tommy Siegel, combined with Jesse Kristins razor-tight and musical drumming, has become after years of road and studio experience. Trading multi-song suites and theatrical turns commonly featured on previous Jukebox records for the song format it knows best, Jukebox the Ghosts self-titled album is curated as an unapologetic pop record start to finish. Yet, one hears the band taking bold risk and adventure.While lead single The Great Unknown soars with anthemic rock adrenaline that stays close to the bands long-honed piano-rock sound and has seen the bands highest success at alternative radio, the songs Made For Ending, Sound of a Broken Heart, and Postcard all take a different direction and combine the bands power-pop composition with R&B and hip-hop flair. Punchy drum samples and rhythmic synthesizers cast glitter upon Jukebox the Ghosts ever-strong songwriting core on Jukebox the Ghost, making it the bands most modern-sounding and ambitious work. On Girl singer-pianist Thornewill showcases his soulful vocal ability, powerful as ever, crooning over a steady mid-tempo number flush with snaps, a bass groove, and little else. The track Postcard, produced by Andrew Dawson, throws Thornewills confident vocals and punchy piano performance against a backdrop of lush synths and hip-hop-inspired grooves to create something truly new for the band. Uncharted territory doesnt stop there.The nostalgic acoustic anthem Long Way Home, features guitarist-vocalist Tommy Siegel and Thornewill trading lead vocals, an alternating-lead-vocal style used for the first time on a Jukebox the Ghost record. If that isnt enough new ground, for the first time, drummer Jesse Kristin provides lead vocals on Hollywood over a lounge-jazz piano prelude that quickly descends into punchy pop distinctive of the bands past, but through a considerably new lens. Amidst so much studio experimentation, one of the most groundbreaking and exciting steps for the band while making this record, was (somewhat counterintuitively) playing less. Sparseness reigns supreme on the haunting vocal-and-Rhodes showcase Undeniable You and on the crushing album-closer Show Me Where It Hurts, the latter of which features just Siegels vocals, Thornewills piano, and a heartbreaking string arrangement by producer Dan Romer reminiscent of his score for the Oscar-nominated film Beasts of the Southern Wild.Jukebox the Ghost arrives after years of accruing a diehard following while remaining one of the hardest-working live acts in music. The groups quirky songwriting and breathtaking performance skills have led the trio to share stages with Ben Folds, Jacks Mannequin, Motion City Soundtrack and Guster, while being one of Yep Rocs lynchpin artists since signing to the label in 2010. Jukebox the Ghost has dazzled on big stages, such as when the group rocked The Late Show with David Letterman, showcasing the vibrant pop-rock workout of Schizophrenia on late-night TV. The band recently returned to late-night TV where they performed the song Postcard off of the new self-titled album on Conan.After nearly a decade of incessant touring, recording, and hard work to establish a passionately devoted fanbase, Jukebox the Ghost has finally given its ghost logo, sketched during the first hours of the bands existence, the album cover of its proudest effort yet.

Layered on top are Daniel Combs’ transcendent key strokes and myriad of effects, which highlight Justin Brown’s full and conscious lyrics. Drummer, Chuck Knott, provides a steady concrete pulse, the heartbeat for Casey Chanatry’s riveting guitar-work.  The band’s newly released album, Choose Your Channel, is one with a little something for everyone and shows both the collective Jahman Brahman spirit as well as a taste of each person’s individual personality.

Genre: Blues/RockCover: Donations @ DoorShow: 10PMAges: 21+N.W. IzzardN.W. Izzard is a man, a band and a brand. Nicholas William Izzard is a guitarist/singer/song writer from Ocala, Fl. Joined by fellow song writer/drummer Tyler Watts and bassist Nathan Ranew, N.W. Izzard the band is known for their unique sound comprised of Funky Blues, Soul and Rock N Roll. In 2012, Izzard was a college dropout living in Orlando, pursuing music full time. The release of the debut single “Hole in One” solidified him as an authentic indie-blues artist, earning a loyal underground following. He continued to study the roots of blues and soul music, reinventing his style and reemerging as N.W. Izzard.In 2015, N.W. reconnected with hometown friend Tyler Watts, who was on the tail end of producing a 3 year long adventure travel documentary, where Izzard was a featured artist on the soundtrack. Sharing a common vision, they began exchanging original songs and ideas while listening to their favorite blues records. In a few days time, songs like Howlin’ Out, Sun’s Gonna Shine and Down to Ride were born. Izzard introduced Watts to the art of busking, performing in the streets of North Central Florida before moving aboard Tyler’s 46 foot sailboat and relocating to the Florida Keys. The duo spent the remainder of 2015 writing songs and refining their sound. During that time, another childhood friend Nathan Ranew saw N.W. Izzard performing at a music festival and convinced the boys to move to Jax Beach, where there was more opportunities for original music. In 2016, they “hit the ground running” earning residencies at Lynch’s Irish Pub and other local venues, playing memorable performances at the infamous Freebird Live, continuing to build their cult-like following. Upon the release of their debut album “No Sleep”, the band was evolving from a 2 piece into a power trio as Nate transitioned from manger to bass player, and from local stand outs to regional touring artists. Today, N.W. Izzard continues to reenergize western music, embodying the rock n roll lifestyle while embracing the roots of soul and funk. Balancing between righteousness and the mysticism that surrounds the voodoo culture, they’ve come to represent to resurgence of the blues and the voice of a generation.Currently splitting time between touring and recording, the boys are staying busy conjuring up their sophomore EP “Midnight Magic”, set to release in June 2017 and the much anticipated full length record that is set to release in spring 2018.web: https://www.nwizzard.com/vid: https://youtu.be/mRXFxOqu-Vk

CONTACT: FRANCES DESROCHERS [email protected] (413) 275 6704 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE GANG OF THIEVES RELEASES FALL TOUR DATES, VOWS TO MAKE YOU 'BELIEVE IN ROCK AND ROLL AGAIN' ASHEVILLE - Sept. 30, 2017 - Gang of Thieves are hitting the road for another Southeast tour, with two lofty goals in mind: to breathe new life into rock and roll, in this age of electronics and synthesizers, and; to renew a communitarian spirit through their volunteer mission, at a time when our country seems so fractured. This Vermont based funk rock quartet has heart, vision, and a road dog reputation— they performed well over 150 energetic shows in the past year alone— and their live show is well equipped for the task at hand, employing blazing guitar solos, shredding electric violin and vocals reminiscent of the late Chris Cornell, all riding atop the bumping, grinding and driving rhythm section. Fresh out of the studio with Grammy-winning producer and engineer Michael Rosen (Rancid, Santana, Less Than Jake, AFI), the Gang has refined their rock and roll recipe. They will be performing a bunch of brand new songs, so come and get some! Gang of Thieves- Fall Tour -more dates TBA - Thurs., Sept. 28 - Virginia Beach, VA (Doc Taylor's Seaside Market Lounge) Fri., Sept. 29- Wilmington, NC (The Whiskey) Sat., Sept. 30- Asheville, NC (One Stop) Fri., Oct. 6- Jupiter, FL (Guanabanas) Sat., Oct. 7- Dunedin, FL (Dunedin Brewery) Sat., Oct. 13 - Savannah, GA (Barrelhouse South) Fri., Oct. 27 - Canton, NY (Java Barn at St Lawrence University) Sat., Oct. 28 - Vergennes, VT (Vergennes Opera House) Wed., Nov. 1 - Ithaca, NY (The Range) Fri., Nov. 10 - Saratoga Springs (Putnam Den) Sat., Nov. 11 - Plattsburgh, NY (Olive Ridley's) ####

The Ataris - The Saddest Song The Ataris - In This Diary The Ataris Boys of Summer Music Video The Ataris are an American pop punk band from Anderson, Indiana. They have released five studio albums, and their most recent E.P. was released on November 25, 2010 on the Gainesville, Florida based label, Paper + Plastick. It contained two new tracks entitled "All Souls' Day" and "The Graveyard of The Atlantic". The band has said they are going to release a new album titled The Graveyard of the Atlantic, however the release date and status of the album is unknown, as it has been delayed since 2009.

Kung Fu Records (1995–2002)

Formed in 1995, the band originally consisted of singer, songwriter, guitarist Kris Roe and guitarist Jasin Thomason. Using a 4-track, Kris wrote and recorded demos in his bedroom, using a drum machine while he searched for a full-time drummer. The band's first big break came in 1996 when Kris attended a show at the club Bogart's in Cincinnati, where Jasin passed one of the band's demo tapes to a roadie from the band. The roadie gave the tape to Joe Escalante, bassist from the band The Vandals who owned their own label, Kung Fu Records. A few weeks later, Roe received a call from Kung Fu Records, who told him they were interested in putting out their record, even though he was really only searching for a drummer. The Ataris signed to Kung Fu and the label passed the tape along to various drummers. Eventually, Roe decided upon ex-Lagwagon drummer Derrick Plourde. The band then proceeded to record their debut album Anywhere but Here, tracking the whole thing in less than a week. The album was released on April 29, 1997 and the band held a release show party at Missing Link Records in Indianapolis on May 2.

In June 1997, Roe moved from Anderson, Indiana to Santa Barbara, California. Shortly afterward, Marko Desantis joined the band on bass for a short time. Thomason decided to leave the band to stay in Indiana, and the group toured as a three-piece for a short while. After a brief tour in October 1997, this lineup disbanded. Roe, out of money and living in a van, contemplated moving back to Indiana. But the band still had an upcoming tour booked with Dance Hall Crashers and Unwritten Law, so Roe decided to give the band one more shot. He got his friend from Santa Barbara, Mike Davenport, to play bass. Davenport shared a small rehearsal space on East Haley Street with his friend Marco Peña, who was in a different band. One day at the rehearsal space, Roe and Davenport heard the drummer of Peña's band, Chris Knapp, playing and immediately asked him to join The Ataris. While Roe and Davenport joked that Peña would be upset over them "stealing" his band's drummer, Peña surprised them by showing up at their practice the next day, strapping on his guitar, and playing along. It turned out Peña had learned all the songs from Anywhere But Here. He joined the band as a second guitarist and the foursome went on their scheduled tour. However, Peña soon left the band due to personal reasons and was replaced by Patrick Riley.

From there, the band gradually increased in popularity in the underground rock scene, a lot due to their consistent touring and personal, DIY approach to the band. They then found more success with their 1998 EP Look Forward to Failure, released on San Francisco punk label Fat Wreck Chords. However, it wasn't until the release of Blue Skies, Broken Hearts...Next 12 Exits in the year 1999 that they started to gain widespread acclaim. The album's name comes from the name of a mobile home park along Highway 101 in Santa Barbara. Also, "...next 12 exits" refers to a nearby sign on Highway 101 North that reads "Santa Barbara, Next 12 Exits". The album contained personal, storytelling lyrics and heartfelt tales of relationships, discovery and things once left behind. After this album, Riley left the band to go back to school, and Marco Peña re-joined the band.

The band's third full length studio album, End is Forever, was released in 2001. This album painted a more intensely personal side of the band's storytelling and personal relationships. Due to their persistent touring schedule, a lot of the arrangements and lyrics were worked out at the last minute while in the studio and then the vocals recorded while Roe had a bad cold. Roe maintains that he was not completely happy with half of the songs, although he went on to state that in spite of this, several of the songs such as "Fast Times at Dropout High" and "Road Signs and Rock Songs" were still to date some of the band's strongest of their earlier career.

So Long, Astoria (2003–05)

In 2002, the lineup changed again, with John Collura replacing Peña on guitar. Prior to this, Collura had played in his own band who'd toured with The Ataris. He'd also done time on tour as a guitar tech for The Ataris just prior to Peña's departure.

During this same period, the Ataris' contract with Kung Fu Records expired, and the band chose to sign with Columbia Records. Later that year, they began recording their fourth full-length album and major label debut, So Long, Astoria, released on March 4, 2003.

Produced by Lou Giordano, the album's production served as a stark contrast to any of the band's past releases. Whereas previous efforts would be recorded in short time spans between tours.

So Long, Astoria was widely credited for introducing The Ataris to a larger mainstream audience and generating several successful singles, including "In This Diary" and "The Saddest Song." Musically, the album showcased very personal, encrypted and slightly more optimistic songwriting with a more refined, straightforward rock sound, not unlike Jimmy Eat World. This album also included their hit cover song, originally recorded by Don Henley "The Boys of Summer", which much to the dismay of the band became their "accidental" second single after a radio station, KROQ in Los Angeles started playing it, even though the band had already chosen the song "My Reply" as their second single. The single is their highest charting single to date, reaching No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The band toured behind this record for most of 2003 and into early 2004. That year also saw the release of a low-key live album, Live At The Metro, along with a track on the Spider-Man 2 soundtrack. So Long, Astoria sold well in excess of 700,000 copies and was certified gold.

After a number of personal, financial and artistic differences, this line-up decided to respectfully and creatively go its separate ways over the summer and fall of 2004. Davenport, interested in playing heavier music, became a founding member of the band Versus the World, while Knapp stopped playing music altogether and stayed in Santa Barbara. Details regarding the departures of Knapp and Davenport have been kept quiet for sometime, and neither camp has appeared interested in fueling any public debate or ill-will.

Looking for some time off, Roe headed back to Indiana while Collura moved back to New York; though the pair would later regroup to begin the recordings of the band's next album.

Welcome the Night (2005–07)

After some time off, Roe and Collura later moved forward and began writing songs that would become part of the follow-up to So Long, Astoria titled Welcome The Night. They held some informal practices with some friends from New York, who played in the band Park Ranger. These sessions led to three members of Park Ranger joining The Ataris: Sean Hansen on bass, Shane Chickeles on drums, and Paul Carabello on third guitar. To round out the lineup they added longtime friends Bob Hoag, formerly of Pollen and The Go Reflex (which was managed by Roe), on piano and keyboards, and Angus Cooke on cello. Cooke played cello on past Ataris records, and helped with production as well. Starting in 2005, the band began recording Welcome the Night at Seedy Underbelly in California, with producer Nick Launay. Writing and recording eventually took the better part of two years and was extended to multiple studios. The album was routinely delayed by Columbia.

On June 10, 2006, the band announced that it had left Columbia Records due to the label's internal disintegration. In November 2006, The Ataris started their own imprint, Isola Recordings, through Sanctuary Records and RED Distribution, and simultaneously announced the official release date of their fifth album Welcome the Night as February 20, 2007. Welcome the Night debuted at number 85 on the Billboard charts with over 12,000 copies sold. Following the album's release, the band embarked on a tour of the United States and Europe.

The Graveyard of the Atlantic (since 2007)

Roe stated in a blog post that the band's new material would see a return to the more upbeat, urgent, rock sound from albums like End Is Forever. He said, "I feel that today where I am at is sort of coming around full circle and just having fun again and being newly inspired by the art that made me discover music in the first place.".

In Spring 2008, three members of a local Indiana band joined The Ataris, replacing the Welcome The Night-era lineup after an amicable split. The band began recording demos for their next album at The Gallows Studio in Muncie, Indiana. Roe described the songs as "just very melodic, raw, catchy, upbeat, sing along rock songs" and "definitely everything the opposite of slick, polished and over produced."

In December 2008, the band recorded a batch of new songs at Flying Blanket Studios in Arizona. Some of which Roe has stated will likely become part of their forthcoming album "The Graveyard of the Atlantic"

Kristopher Roe played a number of acoustic shows throughout Europe and U.K. from January through March 2009. The full band then toured through South America, South Africa, an extensive U.S. tour and scattered dates on the Warped Tour in summer 2009.

Roe finished all of the guitars, bass, and drums for the existing thirteen songs in April 2009. Vocals have currently been recorded on four of those finished tracks. Roe has stated that he has written several other songs since and plans to record and add some of those tracks to The Graveyard of the Atlantic. Roe has confirmed the song "Fast Times at Dropout High", from the End is Forever album, will be re-recorded for the new album. The band recently uploaded an early, unmastered mix of "All Souls Day", as well as an untitled acoustic demo. Both of which will likely be included on their upcoming CD. This rough mix of "All Souls' Day" was also included on the 2009 Warped tour compilation CD.

In August, Roe posted a blog on the band's MySpace page informing that the new album will be named The Graveyard of the Atlantic. The album will be released in Japan by Bullion Records and in the United States on the Gainesville, Florida based label, Paper + Plastick.

On June 10, 2010 Kristopher Roe announced (through facebook.com/theataris) that a 7 inch containing two new songs will be released on July 6 on the Gainesville, FL label Paper + Plastick, in time for their summer tour with Gasoline Heart. The 7 inch contains full band recordings of the songs "All Souls' Day" and "The Graveyard of the Atlantic" and was made available November 25, 2010.

In January–February 2011, Kris Roe embarked on a cross country acoustic solo tour of the US, mostly playing stripped down acoustic versions of The Ataris songs, as well as the occasional spontaneous cover song. During the band's down time Kristopher still continues to tour the world acoustically. To date Kristopher has embarked on several successful acoustic tours throughout the United States, Australia, Japan, South America, Europe, U.K. and Canada.

In an interview with Kris Roe on February 7, 2011, he has confirmed that 20 songs had been recorded in the sessions for their upcoming album The Graveyard of the Atlantic, Likely around twelve of those would make the final record. Some of the leftover tracks will be released over a staggered period of time as 7"'s. bonus tracks and B-sides at the band's own leisure. Kristopher also confirmed that there were still vocals to record for six of those remaining final album tracks, then mixing and mastering will follow. All of the album has been recorded completely to analog tape, using organic sounds and vintage equipment. However as of May 2012 the status of the album is still unknown. At a concert March 6 Kris announced that the album would be released in December 2012.

Genre: Funk/RockCover: Donations @ DoorShow: 10PMAges: 21+Gang of ThievesBorn to Be Loud features Gang of Thieves like they’ve never been heard before. Not on a record, anyway. This studio album delivers the essence of the Gang’s live show through thirteen tracks of funk-bred rock ’n’ roll. Hard-hitting rock (“Bow To The Pedal”) straight into tight jams (“Lost and Found”), with enough Parliament vibe (“If You’re Ready”) that you can’t help but bob your head and move your feet. Authentic and bold, Born To Be Loud was recorded and produced by acclaimed trumpet player and close friend of the band, Steve Jankowski (Blood Sweat and Tears, Chicago, Nile Rodgers), whose influence can be heard throughout the album.In addition to a tight rhythm section, blazing guitar solos and a vicious horn section, the album also reflects the band’s subtle conscious message. “Born to Be Loud means that our generation was born to stand up and unite to shape a better world for us all,” says Michael Reit, whose powerful lyrics aim to unite and empower fans and casual listeners alike. Guitarist Nick Wood adds to that sentiment, “We feel the message of this album is relevant to how many people around the country and around the globe are feeling right now. We want to send a message of community through our music.”Alongside the album’s release, the Gang put out a music video for their single, “Work Together” that featured an inspirational, hooky, pop-fuzed anthem that prompted Vermont-based artists Anthill Collective to paint a massive mural in the band’s hometown of Burlington, Vermont, sending a positive message of community. A highly successful radio campaign accompanied the release, landing Gang in the AMA, Relix / Jambands.comand Muzooka College radio charts on their first foray into radio.Early 2016 has the band returning to all of their East Coast haunts, hitting Florida and Colorado for the first time and returning to the West Coast on a non-stop tour in support of the record… and there are no plans of slowing down on the horizon.“Infectious grooves…These hard working, Burlington-based musicians entranced the audience with their high-energy onslaught of funk/rock tunes…an amazing show” – Cider Mag“…a tightly coiled and well-oiled machine…”Dan Bolles – 7Daysweb: https://www.thegangofthieves.com/vid: https://youtu.be/PCn1NfcMBK8

Com Truise brings his “mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk” to New Mountain AVL with Nosaj Thing + Cleopold on Wednesday, October 4th. • More about Com Truise • Com Truise is one of the many personas of producer and designer Seth Haley, born and raised in upstate New York and operating out of a 12’-overrun apartment in Princeton, New Jersey. An admitted synth obsessive, Com Truise is the maker of an experimental and bottom heavy style he calls “mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk”. Haley’s been making music on the side for roughly a decade—going through pseudonyms like toothbrushes (Sarin Sunday, SYSTM, Airliner)—first as a DJ, and currently, as an excavator of softer, window-fogging synth-wave. While subliminally informed by both parental record collections and hints of faded electronics product design, Haley’s Com Truise project isn’t just nostalgia capitalization. There are fragments (read: DNA strands) of Joy Division, New Order, and the Cocteau Twins, but it’s like you’re hearing them through the motherboard of a waterlogged Xbox—demented and modern. He’s got a way of making familiar things sound beautifully hand-smeared. The first Com Truise release was the Cyanide Sisters EP—distributed for free on the AMdiscs label—where mellow stone-outs like “Sundriped” and “Slow Peels” sat next to harder IDM bangers (“BASF Ace” and “IWYWAW”) and bumpy alt-funk trips (“Norkuy” and “Komputer”). After that came a single “Pyragony/Trypyra,” and a series of eclectic podcast mixes titled “Komputer Cast.” Now comfortably situated amidst the Ghostly roster, he’s prepping his next warped pillage, and hopefully not changing that name again. • More about Nosaj Thing • It's been three years since the release of Nosaj Thing's highly acclaimed debut album, Drift, which topped countless Best Of Year Lists, but 2013 will mark a new chapter for the 27-year-old producer, musician and DJ from Los Angeles. With a new album, label and imprint for Innovative Leisure, Home marks the first time Nosaj has incorporated guest vocalists. Having remixed and worked with the likes of The XX, Flying Lotus, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Beck & Kendrick Lamar, it was time to incorporate a few collaborations of his own with Toro y Moi and Kazu Makino (Blonde Redhead) providing ethereal vocals for two of the tracks on Home. The rest of the album is rounded with Nosaj's signature cinematic soundscapes that explore the space from where Drift left off. • More about Cleopold • Cleopold is an Australian singer-songwriter whose debut EP was just snapped up by Detail Co., a boutique record label owned and curated by Chet Faker. Its lead single, "Down In Flames," will serve as Cleopold's emergence as an independent artist. Based in Los Angeles, Cleopold has penned multiple singles for Miami Horror and Cassian, while collaborating with other Australian luminaries like Bag Raiders and Chet Faker. Cleopold provided the lead vocals for Miami Horror's latest single, "Love Like Mine," and Cassian's recent club hit, "Running," while honing his compositional chops on film scores for directors like Roman Coppola. Cleopold crafts blunt, honest songs with a confidence and sonic precision rarely heard in an emerging artist. His shapeshifting voice is deliberately hard to pin down, and places Cleopold in a musical territory all his own. Cleopold will return to Australia in August for a national tour supporting Miami Horror. With the keys to Chet Faker's Melbourne recording studio, he also plans to pen his debut LP in his label- owner's throne -- a seat still warm from composing the award- winning album, Built On Glass.
