• NOW PLAYING

Kelly’s Lot are back with new album “Can’t Take My Soul” and their usual PR Company, Blind Raccoon.

Yes Kelly Slot (as they are known here at TME.fm) are back and in style, probably their finest work to date but only been listening and playing on radio a couple of weeks so the final verdict is not in yet.

 

Released on the 17th of MAY “Can’t Take My Soul” is already climbing the charts and heading for a Top 5 spot real soon, thanks in part to Betsie the Blind Raccoon, all the radio stations playing the album and of course Ms. Zirbes and band members great work getting the Self-Released album out for the world to enjoy.

 

We finally decided to get rid of our expensive one word reviewer and use the review provided by the PR Company and written by Rick J Bowen, the king of Blues reviews.

 

Los Angeles-based Kelly’s Lot celebrates 25 years of delivering West Coast Soul with a Texas Heart, an eclectic mix of blues, roots, rock & Americana with their 14th album, “Can’t Take My Soul,” containing 12 original compositions that highlights Kelly Zirbes’ smokin’ hot alto. The mix of original songs written by Kelly and her longtime partner in crime, guitarist Perry Robertson, speaks truth to the issues of the day, from our political climate and world struggles to tender matters of the heart, real-life inspiration and tragedy.
Kelly Z opens the album namechecking all her heroes from Muddy to Koko, and Buddy to Etta, on the rockin’ number ‘All I Ever Want Is The Blues.’ She then gets right to the point urging us all to “Don’t Give Up” on the political rebuke ‘All Hope Ain’t Lost.’ The gently swinging blues ‘Alyssa’ was inspired by a young woman born with a terminal illness, who defied the odds and lived to be 23 years old and became a medical pioneer as one of the world’s first to receive gene therapy for Canavan Disease. This song will live on as a loving tribute to her inner strength.

Eddie Baytos joins the crew on accordion and washboard for the Cajun dance party anthem ‘Woe Is Me,’ adding authentic Louisiana spice to the rue. The testament of love, ‘Safe And Warm,’ is delivered on a soft bed of acoustic underpinnings deftly delivered by this veteran band. The notorious French bluesman Jean-François Thomas (recorded by Martial Semonsut at Studio La Vallée in the Auvergne region of France) joins Kelly for a scalding duet ‘Rise Up (Leve-Toi)’ sparing with her in French and English about the fire burning deep inside forbidden love and the Revolution. Frank Hinojosa adds some greasy blues harp to the slinky R&B groove of ‘Broke Myself.’ The acoustic driven ballad, ‘Let It Breathe,’ has that distinct bittersweet and dusty Laurel Canyon feel only Southern California musicians know how to deliver.

Kelly opens a vein and exposes all her depth on the dynamic call for redemption and self-preservation called ‘Dirt,’ a simple title for an expansive and complicated song. She then goes back to her folk-singer roots on the sweet optimistic hymn ‘Little Bit Of This,’ before busting out the rabble-rousing surf rock ‘Can’t Take My Soul.’ We are transported to a sidewalk café in Paris for the final track of the album ‘Mon Ami.’ The lovely encore reveals a softer side of Kelly Z as she serenades us eloquently in French and then translates the images of love and devotion in English with graceful ease.

“Can’t Take My Soul” fully demonstrates the skills and variety in the repertoire Kelly’s Lot have developed over two and half decades performing as an acoustic duo, trio, an electric 5 to 8-piece that are now a mainstay on the Southern California music scene.

One of the best parts of working with Blind Raccoon is they provide everything, not just the music but reviews, biographies and pretty pictures.

 

Kelly’s Lot was formed in 1994 by Kelly Zirbes (sounds like “service” – likes to go by Kelly Z), a folk singer/songwriter with a heart for the blues. With 14 albums and lots of touring in the USA and Europe, the band will celebrate 25 years since the first night they hit the stage at the Roxy in Hollywood. Kelly Z met soundman, Perry Robertson, in 1996 who soon produced their “Live At The Troubadour” album. Within a year he joined the band, started writing songs with Kelly Z and added the Southern Rock and Texas influences that have shaped their sound. As a duo or band, they have played coffee shops, theaters, festivals, clubs, house concerts and a variety of events.

In the last 15 years they have created a 5 to 8-piece band that is well respected on the American blues scene. Some of the larger festivals they have played are Waterfront Blues, Simi Valley Cajun and Blues Festival, Ventura County Blues Festival, Lavaudieu Music Festival, to name just a few. In France, Jean Francois Thomas joined Kelly’s Lot to play in front of 18,000 for the Nuits De Sologne Festival.

Their songs have been heard in movies and television and covered by other artists. Kelly Z is currently working on songs for a couple film projects while still grabbing some inspiration from her fans on Facebook. Challenging them to look in their hearts and share just one word, she then challenges herself to choose a word and write a song in two hours. Perry Robertson, who shares the band leader title with Kelly Z, has recorded and produced most of the band’s music including the soon to be released ‘Can’t Take My Soul’. Releasing on May 17, 2019, the new CD features a lot of Blues but with a couple Folk and Roots/Rock additions. It’s a journey of messages, inspirations and some toe tapping rhythms. Mostly featuring a 4 piece of guitar, bass, drums and vocals, the CD also offers some accordion, harmonica, keys and even a Kelly Z whistle. As a duo, trio or 5 to 8-piece band they always pack a lot of energy while still getting to the heart of the listener.

Kelly and her band have opened for Tommy Castro, Shemekia Copeland, Marcia Ball, John Mayall, Curtis Salgado, Coco Montoya, to name just a few, and have hosted blues events for charities and for fellow blues musicians. With the support of European fans, the band toured across Belgium, France, Germany, England, Scotland, and The Netherlands.

 

So there you have all the inside info of the band a great review and pretty pictures, what more do you want?

Social media links, ok.

Jane Kramer : Valley Of The Bones

Another great artist from the Broken Jukebox Media, Adam Dawson sure knows how to pick them.

In April 2018, Kramer returned to the studio to record her third full-length album. Valley of the Bones is a triumphant collection of original songs that illustrate and explore the expression human of love in all its various forms.

Tracked mostly live (including the vocal performances,) at Sound Temple Studios in Asheville, N.C., Kramer teamed up with her frequent collaborators: Free Planet Radio musicians River Guerguerian, Chris Rosser and two-time Grammy Award winner Eliot Wadopian; as well as Billy Cardine. The album also includes performances by Nicky Sanders of The Steep Canyon Rangers on violin and Asheville Symphony Orchestra musician Franklin Keel on cello.

The collection of 10 original songs was engineered, mixed and produced by Adam Johnson of Sound Lab Studios and co-produced by Kramer and Chris Rosser. Kramer says of bringing the earliest, tentative versions of her songs to Johnson and Rosser for arrangement help and production ideas, “I have never trusted two people more with my art. In the past, I have seldom let people hear my songs until I felt that they were polished, but as my musical relationship with and respect for [Johnson] and [Rosser] have deepened, it felt important to me to to involve them from the beginning”.

“I know that the songs and the record as a whole are much stronger for it, and their gentle but firmly constructive approach has made me a better artist. I’ve been looking for such allies and mentors for a long time,” she adds.

While most of the aforementioned musicians accompanied Kramer on her acclaimed 2016 release Carnival of Hopes, listeners will hear a distinct difference in the band’s chemistry, cohesion and almost electric intuition with one another on Valley of the Bones.

“Simply put, it’s because we’ve been playing together a lot over the past three years since I’ve moved back home to Asheville,” she says. “We’ve gotten to know each other personally, had a little time on the road together, sold out some shows in theaters together and have built an incredible mutual respect. We had genuine fun in the studio. I think all of that translates and comes through on the record.”

Valley of the Bones’ songs tackle a breadth of subject matter, ranging from marriage to miscarriage. Spirituality and self-acceptance are expressed with poetic grace, vulnerability and unapologetically honest grit. Kramer’s endearing, self-effacing humor is also on full display. This warm, easy storytelling is paired with rich, nuanced arrangements that aren’t afraid to be simple when called for, and are punctuated with the unmistakably bittersweet southern wail of Billy Cardine’s dobro.

Standout tracks include the gutsy and reflective “Hymn” (which was a “homework assignment” from Mary Gauthier, Kramer’s musical mentor) the undeniably smart and sassy “Waffle House Song”, and the profoundly poetic and transcendent title track “Valley of the Bones”. This song was dubbed a “masterpiece” by Lydia Hutchinson of Performing Songwriter Magazine. Also noteworthy are the quirky and hilarious country zinger “I’ll See Your Crazy and Raise You Mine” and the sweet, earnest “Singin’s Enough” which speaks candidly of the struggles of a touring musician.

All of the songs on Valley of the Bones show Kramer arriving confidently and comfortably at home inside as both a woman and a masterful songwriter after over twenty years of honing her craft.

‘”Waffle House Song” proves that while Kramer may be eighteen years into her journey, she is solidly serving up a sizzlin’ hot and delicious portion of nourishment for one’s soul…..kinda like that yellow signed place she sings about.”
– Tara Joan, The Daily Country

“I have watched Jane Kramer work diligently, patiently and persistently on her songwriting over many years, refining her natural ability with words to the level of songwriting mastery. She has composed a new collection of songs that beautifully serve the bold, confident intensity of her voice, and I could not be more excited about it. Bravo!”
– 
Mary Gauthier

“Jane Kramer is a folk singer, I dig that” 
– Malcolm Holcombe

“For a singer-songwriter, Kramer has presented the holy trinity of brilliant and affecting songwriting, divine vocals that crackle with emotion and high class backing and accompaniment. That the result is a beautifully produced album that is a joy to listen to perhaps shouldn’t be a surprise”
-Pete Churchill, Americana UK

“The North Carolinian’s third album, Valley Of The Bones, is packed with memorable acoustic-led tunes, an expressive and attractive voice with autobiographical stories that leave you staggered at the breadth of topics and profundity.”
– Tony Ives, Americana Music Show

“Her strong pretty voice and penchant for vivid lyrics are the deepest talents on display here, though the crack band (featuring Nicky Sanders of Steep Canyon Rangers on fiddle) is surely deserving of praise”
– Joseph Neff, The Vinyl District 

“A lovely down home voice, a sharp pen and great taste in musical pals make this organic/back porch set a high water mark for Americana that’ll just drive friends of owners of this album crazy since said owners won’t stop playing it.”
-Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“Kramer is a natural and you’ll find that in her music, as the songs take you down quiet, gravel country roads, beautiful forests of peaceful mountain retreats, and the sometimes lonely nights of motels and truck stops on the road of life.”
– Sheryl Craig, Nashville Music Guide

“these songs are kick-up your heels good. These are old timey string band tunes with a modern feel, songs that will appeal to traditionalists and Americana fans alike. Turn it up!”
-Viola Krause, Making a Scene

“She appears to be more comfortable and confident in herself and her songs than ever.”
– Billy Phoenix, Steemit

Texas singer songwriter, Chad Richard’s second album, Worthy Cause. Worthy Cause, produced by Walt Wilkins, will officially release on April 26th

 

Wow that photo is BIG.

Anyway I spend a lot of time reading reviews and looking for “new artists” and I read a couple of excellent ones and listened to “12 More Days Of Blue”

 I thought I should reach out to Chad and get a copy of the album to play on TME.fm as it is going to be good. Lets see it climb the RMR charts and enjoy the music at the same time.

Chad told his PR man and I received a copy immediately, also Adam the man has more artists who are top notch and we will be mentioning those another day. Adam the man actually remembers dickthespic, small world.

“Worthy Cause is an album full of honest truths in styles that range from country to zydeco in blended forms, and this song is at the heart of it.” – Melissa Clarke

Chad Richard (pronounced REE-shard) is a native of the Sabine River bottom, where the river merges Louisiana with Texas’ soil as it winds along. Steeped in the mingling influences of the region, Richard’s songwriting and musical sensibilities fuse Cajun, Texas swing, country and blues styles into an effortlessly born offspring of each side of the river.

Richard writes songs from the heart. Like so many of us, he has loved, laughed, experienced fatherhood, suffered break-up, sorrow, and divorce, and loved again. The experiences of trying to do all the right things as single Dad shaped his songwriting in unique ways, as much as the musical influences surrounding him did. Holding it all together by day, working in a chemical plant, he’d still play solo gigs at night. When Walt Wilkins happened upon Richard at one of these gigs in 2012, Wilkins invited Richard to sit in Wilkins’ band, at about the same time Todd Purifoy (producer and photographer for the Texas Music Scene) approached him about making a record. Forces aligned, connections solidified and before long Walt was producing Richard’s successful debut album: Veteran’s Grocery (2015).

His second release, Worthy Cause (2019), was recorded at Jumping Dog Studio in Austin, Texas. Again Richard turned to Walt Wilkins (Sam Baker, Jason Eady, Susan Gibson) for production and the album was engineered by Ron Flynt. In addition to Richard’s songwriting, acoustic guitar and vocals, other musicians contributing to the album include Wilkins and Flynt, Marian Brackney on fiddle, Chip Dolan (The Band of Heathens, Greg Trooper) on pianos and organs, Geoff Queen (Kelly Willis, Jason Boland & the Stragglers) on steel guitar, and Corby Schaub (Ryan Bingham) on lap steel. The rhythm section is Ray Rodriguez on drums and Bill Small on bass.

Worthy Cause is an album with songs characterized by stories as only Richard can tell them. “Slow Rollin’ Stateline” spins a tale of growing up on the Texas/LA border with “Zydeco to the east, Texas swing to the west,” as the song bears the musical marks of those influences. “German Angel” recounts a story of a couple living in a historic German house in the Texas Hill country, where the wife believes a ghost resides to watch over the manor, as told from the ghost’s perspective. “Worthy Cause” highlights Richard’s riveting vocals over hushed acoustic guitar and pedal steel, with an imperfect man’s tribute of gratitude towards the good, faithful woman who loves him. “Waters Rise” was inspired by Richard’s first hand experience of the kindness and humanity that shone through the floodwaters in the wake of hurricane Harvey – “waters rise, but people rise above.” “12 More Days of Blue” narrates the poignant tribulations of a loving, single Dad as he masks adult pain in order to experience the best with his child. The entire record showcases Richard’s striking ability to commandeer attention with his powerful vocal presence and compelling direct narrative style.

“I got my first real paying job when I was 11 years old. The man I went to work for gave me some advice. He said “Don’t ever turn something you love into your job! When you do you’ll soon lose the love for it!” I always remembered that and always kept music as a part time escape from my less than favorite job for fear of losing the love for it. Now with 30 years in a chemical plant and only 2 years left till I retire from this less than favorite job, I’m beginning to wonder if just maybe, there’s a possibility, that perhaps, he may have been full of shit!” – Chad Richard

“Chad doesn’t ever have to insist on himself – His completely unique Louisiana-Texas-Soul-Country voice grabs the listener, and in just a few minutes, everyone who hears him likes him,” – Walt Wilkins, Texas Songwriting Legend, Producer

oops didn’t see that, never mind we are a “pirate radio”.

Birds, bread, medicine, and stewarding someone else’s mystery: Kelly Hunt’s “Even The Sparrow,” Coming May 17

On the walls of any local used music shop there hangs a gallery of mysteries. Picked up and handed down across the decades, each instrument contains the imprints and stories of those who have played it before, most of which remain untold. For Kansas City-based songwriter Kelly Hunt the most intriguing of these stories is the origin of her anonymous calfskin tenor banjo. “I really wasn’t looking for it,” she says, “but I opened up the case and it said ‘This banjo was played by a man named Ira Tamm in his dog and pony show from 1920 to 1935.’ I strummed it and said ‘This is unlike anything I’ve ever heard.’ People often think of the banjo as being rather brash and tinny – loud and kind of grating – but this was so warm and mellow, with an almost harp-like quality to it, very soulful” – apt words for the Memphis native’s debut album, Even The Sparrow, coming out May 17 on Rare Bird Records.

The daughter of an opera singer and a saxophonist, Kelly Hunt was raised in Memphis, TN, and grew up performing other people’s works through piano lessons, singing in choirs, and performing theater. “It was a very creative, artistic household,” says Hunt. During her teenage years, influenced by musical inspirations as diverse as Norah Jones, Rachmaninov, and John Denver, she began writing her own songs on the piano as a creative outlet. After being introduced to the banjo in college while studying French and visual arts, Hunt began to develop her own improvised style of playing, combining old-time picking styles with the percussive origins of the instrument. “I’m self-taught, I just started letting the songs dictate what needed to be there,” she says. “I heard a rhythm in a song that I wanted to execute, so I figured out how to do it on the drum head while still being able to articulate certain notes in one motion.” After college, Hunt followed a rambling path that took her through careers in acting, graphic design, traditional French breadmaking, and medicine, all the while making music as a private endeavor. “I wanted get serious about a responsible career choice, but music kept bubbling up. I was writing a lot and playing a lot and started to not be satisfied just playing to my walls of my room.”

After moving to Kansas City and discovering her mysterious Depression-era tenor banjo, Hunt began recording Even The Sparrow in Kansas City alongside collaborator Stas’ Heaney and engineer Kelly Werts. “It took almost two years to record,” she says, “learning how to let the songs dictate the production.” Having finally come to light, the album displays Hunt’s penchant for masterful storytelling and intriguing arrangement, as researched and complex as they are memorable, punctuated by her articulate melodies and a well-enunciated and creative command of lyrical delivery infused with deft emotional communication. While reminiscent of modern traditionalists such as Gillian Welch–a number of her songs even borrow titles and phrasing from traditional American music (“Back to Dixie,” “Gloryland”)–Even The Sparrow reveals an ineffable quality that hovers beyond the constraints of genre, à la Anais Mitchell and Patty Griffin. In “The Men of Blue & Grey,” what begins as a Reconstruction-era ballad about the repurposing of glass photographic plates in a greenhouse roof soon becomes a meditation on the hope that growth and life may one day be able to emerge from the ruins of suffering and haunting of war. “Across The Great Divide” turns an otherwise traditional accounting of spurned love into a philosophical epic of the ethics of forgiveness and freedom, evoking the ideas of Søren Kierkegaard and Walt Whitman.

 

As for the original owner of Kelly Hunt’s mysterious tenor banjo, not much is known. “I’ve never been able to find anything about Ira Tamm,” she says. “I think he just had a humble little traveling show,” she says. What’s clear is that the itinerant performer laid down his banjo at the height of the Great Depression, almost eighty years before it would be picked up by Hunt. “That banjo has stories. I wish I knew them all,” she says, though the banjo’s most intriguing story may just be beginning with Even The Sparrow. “The marks of Ira’s hands are still in the calfskin head, so I can see where he played and left his mark,” she says. “Now my own hand marks are there too, in different places, like a kind of portrait.”

FRANCINE HONEY Releases her latest single and video ‘Shacked-Up Sweetie’ From the album ‘To Be Continued…’

Hard-luck stories can have happy endings. Especially in Francine Honey’s world. “Some of these songs are about going through tough times and then getting to the other side,” the Ontario singer-songwriter says of her third record To Be Continued... “I know I’ve certainly been through my share of struggles. But it’s important to have hope and know you’re not alone. If you’re going through something, someone else has gone through it too. And you have to remember: You don’t know what’s around the corner. Your ‘to be continued…’ might be beyond what you ever imagined.”

To Be Continued… is an album that showcases Honey’s most striking and stirring compositions. “I’m so happy,” she says. “I’m really proud of this record and how it all came together.” Cut in Nashville with Grammy-nominated producer Neilson Hubbard (John Prine, Mary Gauthier, Jason Isbell) and first-call players like guitarists Will Kimbrough and Kris Donegan, pianist Dan Mitchell, bassist Dean Marold and legendary fiddler Eamon McLoughlin, To Be Continued… takes Honey’s mix of Americana, Country, Rock, Canadiana and Blues to the next level, capturing the sound she’s been chasing for years. “It’s hard to articulate what you hear in your head and get it to come to life through other musicians,” she says. But after getting Hubbard’s name from singer-songwriter Gretchen Peters, she knew she’d found her man. “I looked up the songs he produced and went, ‘That’s what I’ve been hearing!’

Although she’s made music since childhood — “I wrote my first song in 1976” — Honey never dreamed of making it a career.  However, along the way, the down-to-earth artist has displayed extraordinary dedication to her craft. Francine’s debut self-produced album An Ordinary Woman came out in 2008 and was followed in 2014 by Re-Drawn, produced by Lang Bliss in Nashville.  As a graduate of the Berklee College of Music Professional Singer-Songwriter Certificate Program, Francine regularly makes the nine-hour drive from Ontario, Canada, to song-writing workshops in Nashville, where she has been mentored by icons like Beth Nielsen Chapman (who contributes backup vocals to Honey’s Snowflakes On My Eyelashes), Mike Reid (I Can’t Make You Love Me), Mary Gauthier (Mercy Now), Verlon Thompson (Boats to Build), Gretchen Peters (Independence Day) and Jonatha Brooke (My Mother has 4 Noses). Francine is a member of the Songwriter’s Association of Canada (SAC), Nashville Songwriter’s Association International, Canadian Country Music Association and Americana Music Association. She co-ordinates the SAC’s Leamington/Windsor Regional Writer’s Group, mentoring other songwriters. She has showcased at the Texas Songwriters Symposium four years in a row, the WinterFolk Blues and Roots Festival in Toronto, the Kingsville Folk Music Festival and the Folk Music Ontario conference. Francine’s music and song-writing have not only taken her through Canada and the U.S but to the U.K., Switzerland and Italy.

Now, To Be Continued takes Francine’s listeners on a journey.  Courageously drawing from her own life, Honey’s latest songs run the gamut of emotion. Snowflakes on My Eyelashes channels the grief of loss; Can’t Break Through to You examines PTSD; and the moving Marilyn documents a harrowing health scare. “That’s a very tough subject and a very personal song,” she confesses. “The room goes quiet when I play it. But I’ll see someone wipe a tear from their eye, and know that song has touched someone.” It’s not alone: Stay was a semi-finalist in the Canada Songwriting Contest and Mamas Take Bad Dreams Away made the top five in the Canada South Songwriting Contest.

Equally laudable are cuts on the lighter side of the roster: The upbeat driving ode Open Road, the sexy come-hither blues of Honey and the uplifting title cut that chronicles her romance with a friend who re-entered her life at just the right time. “I sure had to kiss my share of frogs,” she quips. “I thought I was just meant to be single and figured we would just be friends, and I was happy with that. Little did I know!” And about Shacked-Up Sweetie, Francine’s latest single release and video, “I wrote this song for my sweetie and I. We talked about getting married and decided not to. It took me a while to work through my feelings about not getting married, but in the end, I realized that it’s really all about the commitment you make to each other, not the church ceremony. True love is just bigger than all of that.”

Francine’s music can be heard on CBC radio, Sirius XM and country stations across North America and she receives millions of views on her videos. She has appeared and been interviewed on CTV News, CFRU’s Folk Roots Radio and more.

First listen to New country artist Mark Williams single “Lady On The Run”

FIRST LISTEN> Yes I read everything below before listening and my feet and heals were tapping after ten seconds, after 3 minutes and forty seconds I came to the conclusion Mark might have grown up with Willie Nelson and Garth Brooks playing all around him but he wasn’t listening.

“New” country it definitely is, that new I didn’t recognize it as country.

Now here at TME.fm we have 7 shows a day and one of them is country, Lady On The Run will not get played on that show.

It will get played on the Americana show, we could swing it for some plays on the Roots show and hopefully on the Charts show.

Right remember I am writing after the first listen,the only listen so far, yes so far, I will be playing Lady On The Run a lot, it is a very good song, it has a great sound, cracking lyrics, ok the voice isnt a Bruce Springsteen or a Neil Young but it is OK, overpowered by the instruments a little but not everybody can afford a T-Bone.

One thing for certain I look forward to hearing the rest of the album to encounter some “country” hopefully it will be “Country Americana” and not “NEW”.

VERDICT. A very enjoyable song, a song to listen to again and again(if only to hear where the country is, I might have heard a mandolin in the opening 20 seconds), 7 out of ten aint bad Mark, but country?

 

Mark Williams has been performing on the music scene for a number of years as a singer/songwriter.  Formerly under the name Marc Lavoie, Mark hit the BDS TOP 40 charts with his single ‘Bang ‘Bang’ and played to audiences in major venues across the country including  Montreal’s Formula 1 Grand Prix (70 000+ people), and hockey’s “Remparts de Quebec” show (20 000+ people), plus many shows at Club Soda with a number of of renowned artists such as Gabrielle Destroismaisons, Luc De La Rochellière, Rick Hugues, Les BB, Andree Waters, and more.

 

Now, with hundreds of shows and two albums under his belt, Mark can certainly be called an accomplished artist, passionate about all projects he undertakes. Whether in pop, rock or country, Mark gives every ounce of energy he has to please his fans and his audience.

 

In October 2017, Mark began work with music producer/arranger Michel Francoeur (Robby Johnson, Bobby Bazini). Growing up with country music all around him with influences such as Willie Nelson and Garth Brooks, Mark decided it was time for him to jump into the “new-country” style for his next album.  The 12 new songs from his upcoming album ‘In Motion’ were mastered by Abbey Road Studios in London and features his debut release to country fans called ‘Lady On The Run’.

 

A national tour is planned for 2018-2019 which will give an opportunity for new country lovers to enjoy Mark’s brand new material, as well as covers of the biggest country classics from yesterday to today.

We highly recommend you go out and purchase the album and a ticket to his upcoming tour, as you definitely want to be able to turn around to all your matesin 6 months and tell them you were the one who discovered him first. 
– Music News

‘His debut album is filled with guitar-heavy tracks, gritty vocals and raw songwriting at it’s best.
– Lyric

…he cackles and crazed-gospel-preaches his way through four sides that veer between Seventies Stones licks and hooch-swilling southern bar boogie, ably assisted by the Muscle Shoals Studio rhythm section. 
– The Arts Desk

I’m very rarely wrong with such matters and yet again I’m right, this is an album you too NEED TO OWN! 
– Rocking Magpie

Occasionally an artist comes along and wears their heart so firmly on their sleeve that you can’t help but be moved. Arkansas Dave is an artist of that ilk.  
– Unfashionable Male

Arkansas Dave’ is 13 tracks of hard hittings songs

This is a truly fantastic album that deserves a lot of recognition

Building Our Own Nashville

It’s a romantic cliché to find an escape in music and the blues, but living that life is a different matter. Ask Arkansas Dave about growing up in a broken home, with fundamental Christianity on one side, and crippling drug-addiction on the other, and you can see in his eyes that this is no easy ride, and that at times music really was his only friend.

Chasing his dream of music, Dave played in bands, funding his music with a succession of jobs where he had to find his feet quickly – from busboy to assembly-worker in a trash-bag factory.

His wake up call came at the edge of a breakdown with a cataclysmic weekend epiphany. He headed home for a rare visit, and was persuaded to play a few songs to his family. The response he got from his grandfather sent his mind racing, only for him to find out the next week that his grandfather had died 24 hours later.

Determined to clean himself up, and sort his life, Arkansas Dave enrolled on an audio engineering course at Media Tech in Austin Texas, driving into town with a trailer loaded with all his possessions, ‘like something out of the Beverly Hillbillies’. And that’s where everything changed – the college was housed at that time in the famous Arlyn Studios, home to sessions from Willie Nelson, Neil Young and Ray Charles. Dave with his musical co-horts took the night shift at the studios – laying down tracks and learning the ropes.

A succession of bands followed, picking up a strong local following around Austin. The final part of his musical education saw Dave touring North America as a member of old bluesman Guitar Shorty’s band, where he learned ‘what it took to be a professional musician’

Fast forward to 2016 and Dave has written the album he’s always wanted to create – a wide ranging blues-rock based record that tells the story of his life, but resonates with all of us.

The project just needed one more ingredient, so enter the Swampers, the legendary Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. In a blistering eight-day recording session at Fame Studios the band laid down the backing tracks, and Davereturned to Arlyn to complete the vocals. So the next chapter of Dave’s life is about to be written as he pulls his band together and takes his album out on the road – this time on a road that he’s building….

Airs & Graces – Voting At The Hall

With a mix of folk and punk with a dash of country Airs & Graces have that boundless enthusiasm and infectious energy creating a superb medley of melodies, chants and sing-a-longs that will have you howling for more!


Born in 2012 Airs & Graces are the latest in a long line of utterly fantastic German celtic-punk band’s to grace our scene. We have featured many German bands over the years and Germany has always been the country with the third most views every year since we started of (behind the ‘UK’ and the USA). We have a feeling to why celtic-punk is so popular in Germany so if you not tired of hearing it then head over to our review of Ghosttown Company’s debut album hereand find out. Just recently we have had reviews of records from Distillery Rats, Restless Feet and The O’Reillys And The Paddyhats and a new review will be coming soon of perhaps the best known of all German celtic-punk bands Mr. Irish Bastard.

Airs & Graces hail from the south-eastern German town of Regensburg but if you like me then you’ll be wondering what a maple leaf is doing as part of their logo. Well it turns out that the bands guitar player Arlyn is Canadian (a native of Saint John, New Brunswick) and has lived in Germany since 2008. She is married to Philipp who plays mandolin and sings lead vocals in the band, Together they were both members of celtic-punk band The Buccaneers till they disbanded in 2012. The Canadian connection does not stop there either with Ayron Mortely and Lindsey O’Connell from Toronto who were also part of The Buccaneers and who also play in Airs & Graces but are not featured on Voting At The Hall but do look out for their other celtic-punk band The O’Deadlys.

Airs & Grace from left to right: Arlyn- Guitar/Back Vocals * Philipp- Mandolin/Lead Vocals * Kerni- Drums * Asche- Bass

Voting At The Hall is the bands first official release after a four track Demo from October 2014, Six Men Were Put On Trial, with Matty from Northern-England folk-punkers The Roughneck Riot contributing vocals on one track and despite not having much of a recording history they certainly have made a name for themselves by word of mouth. A couple of high profile gigs have done them the world of good and with their debut album I’m sure they hoping to further capitalise on their good name. Here we have fourteen tracks and every one an original composition, composed by lead vocalist Philipp and arranged by Airs&Graces.

Starting off with ‘Card’ Voting At The Hall is fourteen tracks that comes in just under forty minutes. From the very off it’s reminiscent of 70’s/80’s English punk but with with some nice Celtic flourishes. ‘Cards’ is in fact one of the best tracks on the album with Philipp’s clear vocals shouting out loud and proud. It has a certain Dropkicks feel to it too with its catchy chorus and driving punk and mandolin. Excellent start. The lyrics deal with the betrayal of workers by their trade union leaders. ‘These Hands Master’ tells of working class life that was taken for granted until they realised that not only can these hands build they can also vote.

“These are the hands that built this cities walls, These are the hands voting at the hall”

Great as it is to hear such things I also like a bit of humour and ‘Ginger Red Bastard’ supplies it. Real foot-tapper this and may be a bit slower than previous and that English punk rock sound is even more clearer here with them reminding me of a band from my youth that I can’t quite put my finger on. It will probably come to after this is published! ‘Four Corners’ appeared on the MacSlon’s Irish Pub Radio compilation and was a standout track upon it even though surrounded by the cream of today’s celtic-punk scene.

Telling the story of the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919 it’s brilliant to hear history told this way. Never forget the past people. You can get the compilation here. The album continues with ‘Ringing of The Bell’ and it’s short and sweet and over in two minutes but me heads nearly falling off me shoulders before ‘Turn Her Into The Wind’ and you can hear in the songs that if you took away the Celtic instruments then Airs & Graces would still be a very very good punk band. Another standout here is ‘Throat’ with a memorable hook that would get you up on yer feet if you weren’t already and you can see why the band have got such a good reputation as these are songs that were made for the live setting. ‘Straighten Your Back’ is the shortest track here clocking in at dead on ninety seconds and its catchy as hell while they follow this up with ‘A Town So Black’ which is the most Celtic they get so far with mandolin kicking the song off before the rest of the band come clashing in. Seems the band have a score to settle here but that’s all i’ll be drawn on.

(‘A Town So Black’ featuring David De Prest from Boston punkers Continental)

We’re well over halfway now and ‘Refuse To Go’ continues with another solid slab of punk rock. Now you’d expect me to be biased in favour of the more Celtic numbers but my miss-spent youth and embarrassing photos of multi-coloured mohicans are testimony to my love of old school punk rock and that’s in plentiful supply here and on ‘Devil’s Factory’ where Airs & Graces prove they have a stock of catchy songs that are well played with boundless energy and abandon. ‘Three Sisters’ again has a great hook and singalong chorus and ‘bounce’ to it and the words speak of a landmark at sea that welcomes you back to home soil.

‘Never Wanted Trouble’ is another track that sails by in less than two minutes before ‘Pull Me Out’gs down the curtain on Voting At The Hall and a great ending. No slow songs here its just fast and furious celtic-PUNK rock. People I know who I have been lucky enough to catch them in concert remarked on their excellent live show and their it seems that Airs & Graces have managed to capture their live sound rather well here in the studio and that energetic, raucous and ‘shantyish’ punk rock sound has transferred well. They have a grand sense of history too and all working class people should be proud of our labour history. As someone once said “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. It seems an obvious thing to say so I will say it but lovers of Dropkicks style celtic-punk would absolutely love Airs & Graces and this album is full of good songs that these days the Dropkicks would love to play!

James Scott Bullard’s , Full Tilt Boogie, was released in the US on April 27th and marks his 9th release and 6th LP ReleaseBullard may be a new name to your ears, but he is not new to the country/Americana music scene. Having shared the stage with David Allan Coe, Butch Walker, Dex Romweber and The Steel Woods. Bullard is a man with many stories to tell and he tells those stories with truth and passion.

Ditty TV recently debuted the video “Wicked Ways” on the show Eleven.  Keep your eye out for the video and you can also watch on youtube

James Scott Bullard’s song “Wicked Ways” off of ‘Full Tilt Boogie’ is #1 at The Alternate Root Magazine‘s top ten songs of the week!

 

Thanks Raised Rowdy for including James Scott Bullard on your list “5 Country Artists You May Not Know But Should”

Europe and UK praise:

“Full Tilt Boogie is getting into its groove and is outpacing many albums in its sort I’ve heard recently as is competing full on with my favourites in the genre…The title in the right hand corner is nothing but a statement, full disclosure. Brace yourself to rock!– Wout de natric, WoNo Music Blog (Netherlands)

 

From “Warpath” to “Jesus, Jail, Or Texas”, from “Leavin ‘On My Mind” to the final “Back To You” with his clear guitar duets that refer to the Allman Brothers Band of the “Eat A Peach” period, all contributes to forming a group to be strongly recommended. A (for us) beautiful discovery. —Lonestartime (Italy)

 

“Full Tilt Boogie is full of up-tempo songs that combine influences from country rock, blues rock and Southern rock, combining a traditionally sounding roots sound with wonderfully teasing guitars. It occasionally reminds me of the early records of R.E.M., which were much more rootsier than the most successful records of the band. All in all a nice plate. A very nice plate even.” –  Erwin Zijleman,  De Krenten Uit De Pop (Netherlands)

 

“Full Tilt Boogie is full of booming honky tonk, where the blues are drowned in shots of whiskey.”—Altcountry.nl

 

Keys and Chords (Belgium)

 

“‘Full Tilt Boogie’ sees songs such as Lord, Have Mercy, Wicked Ways, the sublime and rather fabulous Jesus, Jail, or Texas, Leavin’ On My Mind and Back To You inhale deeply, take in the rush of air that surveys the scene from the deep south and lets go with unnerving majesty.”—Liverpool Sound and Vision

 

“WOW! Bullard has a delightfully leathery voice and his band are red hot, to the point of melting the CD Player on that opening track; and it’s fair to say……things only get better from then on in!” — TheRockingMapgie (UK)

US Press:

 ” This is unrelenting, full throttle outlaw country assault with screaming guitars and riffs that sound at times like the Allman Brothers on steroids. “– Jim Hynes, Elmore Magazine

“Full Tilt Badassery…It is a rowdy, raucous good time, that changes pace when necessary to settle you down and allow Bullard to really unleash himself on you. It’s a very full and robust record that takes you on a journey with stops including rowdy women, living your own rowdy existence, and all points in between.”—Country Music Armadillo

 

“This is straight-up entertaining fare – musically and lyrically – and I could take a whole album of it. Luckily, there’s one on the way.”— Jolene Country Music Blog

TOP Music of 2018 so far: Americana Music Show

“Calvin plays a double shot of the new southern rock sounds of Mr. James Scott Bullard. His new album is called Full Tilt Boogie and it lives up to its name…“James Scott Bullard has delivered a Southern Rock album par excellence.”
— Tony Ives /Americana Music Show

“Waving flags is a hazardous business these days but James Scott Bullard is a deserved standard bearer of the southern rock tradition. Drawing on impeccable sources he has created his own original, authentic style that flies high above some very pale imitations of one of music’s finest genres.”—Lyndon Bolton, Americana Music Show

“If you are looking for your next honky tonk hero, I think I may have found him. His name is James Scott Bullard (JSB) and he is pure, 24 karat gold.”— TwangriLa 

“James Scott Bullard’s ‘Full Tilt Boogie’–“This album is great from start to finish…Don’t think twice. Get this one now.”— Bob Leggett, LA Music Critic

‘”The South Carolinian’s burly baritone appeals with the rough warmth of an overly loved flannel shirt, making hard-luck tales like “Lord, Have Mercy,” “Wicked Ways” and “Jesus, Jail, or Texas” more relatable. RIYL Jamey Johnson, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Reed.”—Pasadena Weekly

“Walmart parking lot music for the country folk that don’t go to Sunday meeting. Down and dirty, loaded with electric blues, when you’re piloting that big rig on reds, this record becomes totally clear.”
— Chris Spector/Midwest Record Entertainment News

“The raw, high-energy boogie of “Hey, Hey Mama” and the swinging tempo of “Evil Lovin’,” showcases Bullard’s fun, delivering an edgier country rock sound. ”
— J. Pasinski/JP’s Music Blog
