THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM

AVAILABLE JUNE 2ND ON IG RECORDINGS/VANGUARD RECORDS

March 24, 2015 – – It has been four years since the Indigo Girls released a new studio album. On June 2nd, their much-anticipated release ONE LOST DAY, will be available on IG Recordings/Vanguard Records. With the help of visionary new producer Jordan Brooke Hamlin (Lucy Wainwright Roche) and mixer Brian Joseph (Bon Iver, PHOX, Kathleen Edwards), Amy Ray and Emily Sailers have created a landscape of truly original sounds and stories ranging from stark intimacy to bombastic pop and grind.

On ONE LOST DAY, musicality, whimsy, rawness, sadness and joy move through each of the 13 tracks. This theme is especially evident on the first single, “Happy in the Sorrow Key,” written by Amy Ray. “I drew from lyrics I wrote during some of my travels with the IG’s,” Amy said. “I was thinking about the things that keep us weighed down with non-acceptance and a refusal to embrace impermanence and suffering. I don’t think you can make change for the good until you do, so it’s an activist part of me searching for a way to face reality and still have the energy and passion to work for good.”

ONE LOST DAY was recorded in studios in Nashville, TN and mixed at Justin Vernon’s April Base Studios in Fall Creek, WI and at the Parhelion Recording Studios in Atlanta, GA. Musicians Brady Blade and Carol Isaacs from the Indigo Girls’ Beauty Queen Sister returned, along with the Indigo Girls’ touring band. Additionally, Amy and Emily brought in Lex Price (k.d. lang, Mindy Smith), Butterfly Boucher (Ingrid Michaelson, Katie Herzig, Mat Kearney), Fred Eltringham (Sheryl Crow, The Wallflowers, Gigolo Aunts) and Chris Donohue (Dave Matthews, Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams, Robert Plant) to bring a good dose of infectious energy and creativity to the scene.

“We took some chances on the making of ONE LOST DAY, with a new producer, engineer, and various musicians,” Emily said. “Stretching like that felt liberating to me. Each song tells a story of where we’ve been and what we’ve thought about, whom we’ve met, and the travels we’ve had. It is a travelogue on lessons learned and love lived. I’m so glad we brought Jordan Hamlin on board to take us to new musical landscapes for this group of songs. And my relationship with Amy feels further strengthened by the collection of these songs and the diligent effort to make them the best they could be.”

Amy mirrors Emily’s sentiments. “The title sums it up for me,” she said. “This is about the one lost day that rekindled and infused with our spirit to find that making music is just as vibrant and full of passion as it’s even been for us!”

The Indigo Girls will be hitting the road this summer following the release of ONE LOST DAY. Initial dates are listed below with more dates to be announced soon. Visit www.indigogirls.com for updates.

AN INTIMATE LOOK INTO TREVOR HALL’S EP
Unpack Your Memories Available March 27th
Australian Tour Begins on April 2nd Followed by U.S. Dates in Late Spring

“Songs come and songs go. Some get lost in the folds of time, while others are passed on and shared in infinitude.” – Trevor Hall

March 11, 2015 – Singer-songwriter Trevor Hall has unveiled a video trailer for his new EP Unpack Your Memories, due out on Vanguard Records on March 27th.

The intimate look into Unpack Your Memories was directed by his wife Emory Hall and takes the viewer on a personal journey through some of Hall’s most beautiful memories of his life.

Click here to watch the trailer.

Unpack Your Memories is a five song collection which includes some of Hall’s most personal tracks.

Hall talks about the history of these songs and why he chose to share them with the world at this time. “Unpack Your Memories is a collection of songs that have been in my “vault” for a long time now,” Hall says. “Some just didn’t make the other albums and some were just too intimate to share at the time. Now they are ready to breathe and be shared with others. The name of the album says everything … These are all songs that have become memories for me. I am reaching into my bag and unpacking them – unpacking their meaning, the memory of where I was when I wrote them, and the feelings that they brought me so many years ago. As the saying goes, ‘You never meet the same river twice.’ Every time I hear these songs, they teach me something new or offer me the gift of a new perspective. There are many other songs that are still in my vault, but I felt these were the most important to share at this time. The songs all came up together like the roots of a tree, and have taken form in the EP.”

The Unpack Your Memories EP is available for pre-order from the Vanguard Records store here.

Following the release of Unpack Your Memories, Trevor will be back on the road in Australia for his Bluesfest debut and in the U.S. Performances include the Soulshine Festival, California Roots Festival, Wanderlust and more.

John Butler Trio reminds you to ‘Spring Forward’ this weekend…

jbt.logo

Screen Shot 2015-03-05 at 2.14.02 PM

John Butler Trio reminds you to “spring forward” this weekend as Daylight Saving Time begins. Their single “Spring to Come” is the perfect song to help usher in Spring, commencing March 20 (and much needed relief for most of our country).

John Butler Trio won the ARIA–Australia’s Grammy–for Best Roots & Blues Album of the Year for Flesh & Blood. Their album was named one of the Top 10 releases of the year by Acoustic Nation. JBT kick off their tour in Australia this weekend and will return to the U.S. later this year.

“Spring To Come” shares the message that hope is ahead and pulls us forward: “out of the darkness, only light can come.” Conan O’Brien’s Team Coco premiered John Butler Trio’s beautiful music video with over 1 million impressions. That’s in addition to the 156,000+ YouTube views for the music video.

This past year, JBT played the Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Voodoo, and Wakarusa festivals. The band also headlined their own shows that sold out Red Rocks and Central Park in the US, venues as large as 4,500-seaters in Europe, and even larger ones in their home country of Australia.

Cecilia and the Satellite

Andrew

February 26, 2015 — The life of a touring artist can be grueling.  That could become even more grueling when toting around a newborn.  However, for Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, life away from home proves blissful precisely because of that child.  The namesake of his band’s single “Cecilia and the Satellite,” the daughter of Southern California-based artist Andrew McMahon proves as inspiring at home as on a tour bus on the opposite coast.  Written just weeks prior to her birth, McMahon wanted to create a song that introduced who he was and the stories he lived prior to Cecilia’s entry to the world.  The result ultimately became the powerful first single from his newest band incarnation’s self-titled album Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness (Vanguard).  McMahon was the frontman of previous bands Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin.  The new “Day in the Life” cut from the “Cecilia and the Satellite” video, filmed over the course of a day while on tour in Philadelphia, showcases how an otherwise ordinary day is brightened because of the presence of Cecilia, Andrew’s wife Kelly, and even their dog Doris.

“Songs come and songs go. Some get lost in the folds of time, while others are passed on and shared in infinitude.” – Trevor Hall

The Word Announces Tour Dates Including New Orleans Jazzfest!

THE WORD

ANNOUNCES FIRST STRING OF TOUR DATES INCLUDING

NEW ORLEANS JAZZFEST ON APRIL 30TH

NEW ALBUM SOUL FOOD OUT ON MAY 5TH

TheWord78456-2_SoulFood

THE WORD – Robert Randolph, John Medeski and the North Mississippi Allstars (Luther Dickinson, Cody Dickinson and Chris Chew) will be hitting the road in support of their new album Soul Food – their first recording after 14 years out on May 5th from Vanguard Records. The initial dates announced begin April 17th at the Wanee Festival in Live Oak, FL and include two dates in New Orleans – April 26th at the Joy Theater and April 30th at Jazzfest plus additional high profile festival appearances. See list of dates below with more to be announced soon.

Soul Food reflects the band’s geography, beginning in a New York studio and finishing in Memphis at the home of Hi Records (a studio untouched since 1969, where Al Green recorded all his hits, where Mark Ronson recorded “Uptown Funk!”). In New York, they each brought material to the table—Cody brought “New Word Order,” inspired by listening to Dr. Martin Luther King’s “Free at Last” speech; he took the chord changes Dr. King evoked and the rhythm of his delivery and developed the song. John brought “Swamp Road,” inspired by New Orleans pianist James Booker and previously rendered on an obscure session John did with DJ Logic. Robert brought “Chocolate Cowboy,” which Cody drives with the sanctified church beat that gets the congregation popping out of their seats and doing the sacred equivalent of the punk rock pogo.

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE SINGLE “COME BY HERE.”

The genesis of THE WORD began in the year 1998, when the Avant-jazz and funk group Medeski, Martin & Wood took the burgeoning North Mississippi Allstars on their first tour. Riding down the road, the groups listened to the first two Arhoolie Records compilations of sacred steel guitar, a musical style then just seeping into the broader public awareness. Sacred steel is ecstatic pedal steel guitar used in sanctified churches; it’s the same instrument familiar to country & western music, but played with the authority and scale of a church organ. Keyboardist John Medeski and Luther Dickinson cooked up the idea of recording an instrumental gospel album with the Allstars (Luther Dickinson—guitars; Cody Dickinson—drums; Chris Chew—bass) in Medeski’s Brooklyn studio. When they learned that a young sacred steel star named Robert Randolph lived in New Jersey, they invited him to their area gig. This was THE WORD’S big bang.

Tour Dates:

2015-04-17         Live Oak FL – Wanee Festival

2015-04-26         New Orleans, LA – Joy Theater
