One Lost Day
New Album from the Indigo Girls
Available Now For Pre-Order

Behind the Scenes Look at the First Single
“Happy In the Sorrow Key”

IG

ONE LOST DAY, the highly anticipated new album from the Indigo Girls, is now available for pre-order from iTunes and Amazon. Releasing everywhere on June 2nd, ONE LOST DAY is the first studio album from the iconic duo in four years.

Last week the Wall Street Journal premiered the album’s first single, “Happy in the Sorrow Key.” Written by Amy Ray, “Happy in the Sorrow Key” was a track Ray previously started writing and revisited after the loss of her father. “It’s not about death, but it’s about impermanence,” Ray explains. “Its kind of the opposite of ignorance is bliss, and me saying I’m happier when I know the facts, and when I know the pain, and I know all the sorrow in life and am faced with things.”

Watch the behind the scenes making of “Happy in the Sorrow Key”

The Indigo Girls will be hitting the road following the release of ONE LOST DAY. Visit www.indigogirls.com for updates.

BARENAKED LADIES
NEW ALBUM SILVERBALL
AVAILABLE ON JUNE 2ND
LAST SUMMER ON EARTH TOUR BEGINS ON JUNE 5TH
IN COLUMBUS, OH

BNL_Silverball

After 27 years together, over 14 million albums sold and multiple Grammy nominations, SILVERBALL, Barenaked Ladies fourteenth studio album, finds the long-standing partnership of Ed Robertson (guitar, vocals), Jim Creeggan (bass, vocals), Kevin Hearn (keyboard, guitar, vocals) and Tyler Stewart (drums, vocals) firing on all cylinders.

“I think it would be fair to say if the band was collectively known as Stella, then this record would indicate the reality that Stella had indeed got her groove back,” states Ed Robertson. “This is the first record since our debut, Gordon that was written with no hand-wringing, second-guessing, insecurity or self-doubt,” Robertson asserts.

Available on June 2nd, SILVERBALL was produced by the band’s longtime friend Gavin Brown (The Tragically Hip, Metric) who helmed their previous project, 2013 Grinning Streak. The album’s thirteen tracks showcase the band’s growth, while still delivering a flurry of counterpunches and a wisecrack or two, in true BNL fashion.

“We’re pushing in new directions—as always, I think—but it’s still unmistakably these four guys playing together, and that’s what I’m most proud of,” Robertson adds. “I put the record on and it doesn’t sound like anything we’ve ever done before, and yet it is unmistakably the new Barenaked Ladies record.”

Watch behind the scenes footage on the making of SILVERBALL here: https://youtu.be/WLOD7_HR96I

Following the release of SILVERBALL, Barenaked Ladies will be heading back out on the road for their 2015 Last Summer on Earth Tour.

The Indigo Girls Release First Studio Album in 4 Years – ‘One Lost Day’ out on June 2nd

IG_RECORDINGS_LOGO_w-whitevanguard-records-50fcde1d8afaeONE LOST DAY
THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM
THE INDIGO GIRLS
AVAILABLE JUNE 2ND ON IG RECORDINGS/VANGUARD RECORDS

IG

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

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

TrevorHall.UnpackYourMemories (1)

“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.
