“The enduring Rebel of Rock n’ Roll.” – Wall Street Journal

“At 79, the Killer delivers another thriller.” – Rolling Stone

“Few predicted that the Killer’d still be calling rock n’ roll time at the ripe old age of 79 – almost single handedly now – but hither he thunders with an excellent 11 track battery co-produced by killer sticksman Jim Keltner in Memphis.”  – MOJO

“……the album is clearly and authoritatively Lewis' show. His voice is strong, his piano playing as colorfully inventive as ever.” – Los Angeles Times

"Even staring 80 years in the face, Lewis remains a defiantly ornery presence, and the stellar cast here – Neil Young, Robbie Robertson, Doyle Bramhall II – are kept firmly in harness to his still muscular vocals and strident barrelhouse piano." – The Guardian (UK)

“Suffice it to say, it was clear from the opening piano flourish and first few notes from his fiery throat that Lewis’ unique presence is as bold and indelible as ever.”  – Country Music People (UK)

“Unlike other such projects that prop up aging rockers with a surplus of headliners respectfully going through the motions, Lewis is totally in control as he cranks out these tunes with a fire and intensity that doesn’t seem to have dimmed despite his six decade career.” – American Songwriter

“’Rock & Roll Time’ is the third “comeback” album by the soon-to-be 80-year-old Lewis in less than a decade, and it surpasses expectations by being the most enjoyable and purposeful of the lot.”
– Memphis Commercial Appeal

“All Killer, no filler…Sometimes an old legend plus a heavy guest list album induces foreboding, as if one is celebrating a career while the protagonist is still just above ground. But Jerry Lee Lewis is in great vocal and piano form throughout; there’s no sign of him heading for the terminal gate just yet.”
– Classic Rock Magazine (UK)

Praise for Sallie Ford’s ‘Slap Back’ – On Tour Now

Posted on November 18, 2014

SallieFordSlapBack Cover (2)

“Sallie Ford sings straight from the loins. Her greatest belts and huffs express lustful need…..Small wonder her music has always had the energy and edge of a Chrissie Hynde or a Peaches. If a middle finger could sing, it would sound like Sallie Ford.“
– New York Daily News

“The Oregon-based singer-songwriter and guitarist Ford is like a cross between Liz Phair and Buddy Holly. Her previous band, the Sound Outside, delivered rockabilly by the gallon, but recently she assembled an all-female four-piece group that favors sixties-infused guitar-pop marked by a fair amount of distortion pedal. Her rollicking new album, “Slap Back,” is a gem, with fierce and danceable tracks, heavy on attitude.”
– New Yorker

“On the exhilarating Slap Back, the Portland, Oregon-based singer-songwriter debuts her new all-female backing band, sounding like the early, badass Elvis Costello who fronted the Attractions. Buoyed by waves of punky garage rock, Ford addresses urgent issues like romance and lust in her usual blunt language while illuminating her own struggles and pausing for moments of surprising tenderness For all the catchy tunes and tough grooves, Ford's greatest asset is her rowdy charisma.”
–Mother Jones

“Slap Back is a solid extension of Ford’s well-noted laissez faire disposition, even while invoking equality empowerment with a quiver of raucous, garage-y rock tunes about love, sex and everything in between.”
– Paste

“….and while Ford has never been shy about baring her soul on-stage or in the studio, these songs are less guarded or theatrical than before, and they work all the better for it. Add in Chris Funk's simple, empathetic production, and Slap Back sounds like a fresh and satisfying new beginning for Sallie Ford, where she gives herself a sonic makeover and gains more than she loses.”

VIDEO PREMIERE: THE LIVING SISTERS Salute Kadoka, South Dakota

Posted on October 30, 2014

THE LIVING SISTERS

VIDEO PREMIERE: “KADOKA, SOUTH DAKOTA”

FROM THEIR NEW ALBUM

HARMONY IS REAL: SONGS FOR A HAPPY HOLIDAY

AVAILABLE NOW! 

78431_TheLivingSisters.HarmonyIsReal

The Living Sisters tip their hat to the small town of Kadoka, South Dakota in their new music video premiered by Yahoo Music.  Written by Eleni Mandell (who also directed the video), the song was inspired by a stop off in Kadoka earlier this year.

Mandell explains, “I was on tour in the dead of winter with my two toddlers & their babysitter. We were tired, cranky and hungry so decided to try Jiggers, the only restaurant we'd seen for miles. We didn't expect much but wound up having a nice dinner and friendly conversation. It was a lovely moment in time and I thought the words Kadoka, South Dakota had a nice ring to them.”

“Kadoka, South Dakota” is one of the twelve tracks on the Sisters’ new holiday album Harmony is Real: Songs for a Happy Holiday. The album features eight original spirited songs including “Neon Chinese Christmas Eve,” “Christmas in California,” and the new single “Skip the Sugar (Good Girl)” as well as classic holiday gems like “Jingle Bells” and “Little Drummer Boy” wrapped in the Sisters’ unique arrangements. From the retro cover photo to their stunning harmonies, Harmony is Real: Songs for a Happy Holiday is as comforting and warm as a winter fire’s glow.

Earlier this week, Los Angeles tastemaker station KCRW previewed the full album and you can listen here.

Produced by Sheldon Gomberg and The Living Sisters Harmony Is Real: Songs for a Happy Holiday is available now at iTunes, Amazon and the Vanguard Records store.

Eleni Mandell and Becky Stark formed The Living Sisters in 2005 as a way to explore their mutual love of harmonies. Inara George joined the following year, and Alex Lilly became the fourth “sister” in 2012. Their critically acclaimed 2010 Vanguard debut, Love to Live was followed by last year’s EP, Run for Cover. While each woman has a thriving solo career, together they create incandescent harmonies that recall vintage sister acts of the ‘50s, tossed with a hearty helping of contemporary spice.

1. Harmony is Real

2. Kadoka, South Dakota

3. Jingle Bells

4. Merry Happy Christmas

5. Skip the Sugar (Good Girl)

Matt Nathanson & Starkey Hearing Foundation Give the Gift of Hearing in Peru

Matt Nathanson Partners with Starkey Hearing Foundation to Raise Funds & Awareness for Hearing Impaired

Single "Headphones (feat. LOLO)" Soundtracks Heartwarming Experience

100% of Proceeds from Official New Video
Donated to Starkey Hearing Foundation

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

Matt Nathanson has put his money where his mouth is. In an effort to make real and lasting change in the world, Nathanson has partnered with Starkey Hearing Foundation to raise awareness and funds for the hearing impaired. Nathanson recently made the 24-hour journey from San Francisco, CA to Huancayo, Peru to volunteer with the Foundation team and distribute over 1,000 hearing aids and after care to people in need. The resulting video of Matt's trip is not only a moving document of his time there, but also serves to raise funds for Starkey Hearing Foundation to continue their distribution efforts around the world. 100% of proceeds from the video are being donated to the Foundation by Matt and his label, Vanguard Records. The more the VEVO/YouTube link is posted and shared, the more funds they will receive.

Nathanson says of the experience, "If I couldn’t hear, I would be lost.  Because I play music for a living, hearing is everything...It ignites something in you when you do work like this.  I feel like this is the beginning of a life of giving back."

"When we help someone hear, we provide a way for them to connect with others and experience the world around them," says Bill Austin, Founder of Starkey Hearing Foundation. "With the support of passionate partners and hearing angels like Matt Nathanson, we help people in need around the world reach their full potential and engage with the things, like music, that add color and joy to their lives."

October is also both National Audiology Awareness Month & National Hearing Protection month. Starkey Hearing Foundation uses hearing as a vehicle to reflect caring and change lives around the world. Disabling hearing loss affects more than 360 million people, including 32 million children, worldwide, yet many do not have access to the hearing devices that can help them. Starkey Hearing Foundation fits and gives more than 100,000 hearing aids annually, and as a member of President Clinton’s Global Initiative, it has pledged to fit one million hearing aids this decade. In addition to giving the gift of hearing through worldwide hearing missions, they also promote hearing health awareness and education through the Listen Carefully campaign and provides hearing instruments to low-income Americans through the Hear Now program.

New Track “High Dive” from Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness

Posted on September 2, 2014

New Track "High Dive" from Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness
Premiere Today on BuzzFeed

Self-Titled Album Out October 14 on Vanguard Records

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness has shared his new track, "High Dive," today with BuzzFeed. The song is from his forthcoming self-titled album, out October 14 on Vanguard Records. BuzzFeed has also featured Andrew in a profile on their site.

LISTEN to "High Dive" on BuzzFeed
READ about Andrew on Buzzfeed

“High Dive” emerged from Andrew's recording sessions with Mike Viola. “‘The song asks the question ‘If I had never gotten sick, where would I be?’” he says. “My illness put a lot into perspective for my wife (then girlfriend) and I. With ‘High Dive’ I imagined what it would have been like if we’d split up and she’d moved on. In a universal sense, it's about letting someone go and realizing you were wrong, but it's too late.” The song buoys McMahon’s gentle tenor, slowly building from a spare composition with a snapping, driving beat.
