Here’s a fun video. It’s Jamestown Revival kickin’ it up live in a decked out van at this year’s SXSW. The new song “Company Man" is a down and dirty slide-fest with a great background and some killer vocal harmonies. Catchy as hell, this straight ahead bluesy rocker is stuck in my brain!
Alvarez, which has had a long-standing friendship with band members Bob Weir and the late Jerry Garcia, has commemorated the group's 50th anniversary by releasing its new Grateful Dead series of guitars—a stunning, limited-edition line.
We can always count on Candyrat Records to deliver the goods on a variety of acoustic-based music, and this new video (uploaded May 8) is a winner. Here we have Olivier Babaz performing Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” using an upright bass and kalimba (otherwise known as a thumb piano). The most impressive part of the clip comes around the 2:30 mark, where Babaz pulls his best Page impression, nailing the solo on his upright bass. Never seen that before.
Today we’re pleased to premiere the stream of Sleeping Giant, the new release by The Cerny Brothers, available May 12, 2015 on Krian Music Group. The album is a thoughtful blend of acoustic-y goodness supported by some driving beats and heavier guitars. It’s the perfect union of Americana and rock.
650 shows, 43 states, one baby and two hearts between'em. Meet Carolina Story. Like the friends you grew up with, Ben and Emily's songs are not trying to impress you but rather bring you closer to what who you've always been
I had the pleasure of catching up with Greg Holden a couple of weeks ago. Wowza. This talented artist really knows how to write and deliver a tune. Check out his live performance in the Acoustic Nation studio of "Hold On Tight" from his new album, Chase the Sun
Guys and girls, it’s quite simple: your mom deserves more than a just greeting card on mother’s day. We’ve made it easy for you and put together a list of 10 things for all budgets you should consider getting her in addition to that lovely dinner and heartfelt, handwritten sentiment you were already planning on getting her (ahem).
I had the pleasure of connecting with the talented Rorie Kelly last year when she submitted to perform at the She Rocks Showcase at the NAMM Show in Nashville. Since then I’ve been an avid believer in this NYC-based singer/songwriter. Kelly has faced her demons and is striking out to fulfill her dream with the creation of her new album Rising Rising Rising. She’s got a crowd-funding campaign underway on RocketHub to fund the project. Check out her uplifting message and gorgeous vocals here>>
