CD: MARK NEWTON & STEVE THOMAS - Reborn

MARK NEWTON & STEVE THOMAS - Reborn


Pinecastle Records, 09.04.2013
Genre: Bluegrass, Blues, Country, Americana

  • OLD MCDONALD
  • THE KEY
  • PAINTED LADY
  • BLUE RAILROAD TRAIN
  • PINEYWOOD HILLS
  • FAR FAR CRY
  • ARE YOU MISSING ME
  • COUNTRY SONG
  • THE GIRL I LEFT IN SUNNY TENNESSEE
  • IF IT AIN'T LOVE
  • KENTUCKY WALTZ
  • NOBODY'S BUSINESS
Dieses Album ist ein Debüt von zwei exzellenten Musikern, Mark Newton und Steve Thomas, beide aus Virginia, unterstützt von ebensolchen Profis am Bass (Matt Wallace) sowie Special Guests Ricky Skaggs (Clawhammer Banjo) und Scott Vestal (Banjo).

Mark Newton begann seine Bluegrass-Laufbahn bereits mit 6 Jahren in der Familie, gründete eigene Bands und spielte u. a. mit Tony Rice Unit und Bill Emerson, produzierte einige CDs und war 2007 für einen IBMA-Award nominiert.
Steve Thomas begann ebenfalls in jungen Jahren in der Gospelband seines Vaters. Er gewann einige Awards als bester Fiddler. Er spielte u. a. mit Jim & Jesse, Osborne Brothers, Brooks and Dunn.
Auf vorliegender CD teilen sich Mark und Steve die Gesangparts, Mark spielt die Gitarre, Steve sowohl Gitarre als auch Fiddle, Mandoline und Dobro. Die Stücke sind alle Covers, lediglich Track 6 (Far Far Cry) ist eine Komposition von Thomas und wird auch von ihm gesungen. Der erste Titel (Old McDonald) ist an das Kinderlied angelehnt, sehr flott und es klingt das irische Erbe durch. Track 2 – ein schönes Duett. Nummer 3 würde ich als Newgrass einstufen. Bei Nummer 4 wird es dann bluesig (Blue Railroad Train). In Pineywood Hills gedenkt man sehr getragen und akustisch der alten Heimat. Track 7 und 8 sehr traditionell und flott und bluegrassig. The Girl I Left in Sunny Tennessee klingt sehr einschmeichelnd und hat echtes Old-Time-Feeling. In Track 10 schrillt die Fiddle „wenn es keine Liebe gibt, dann laß ihn gehen“ – Newgrass. Kentucky Waltz, ebenfalls sehr Fiddle-lastig. Und mit dem letzten Stück Nobody’s Business steigert sich das Tempo ins unglaubliche, ein traditionelles Tanzstück, rasend schnelles Banjo und die Füße tanzen von selber unter dem Tisch mit.

Die CD ist eine geschickte Mischung von traditionellem Bluegrass, Blues, Newgrass, Americana und Old-Time-Country. Für jeden Geschmack was dabei.

CD: Infamous Stringdusters - Let it Go

Infamous Stringdusters
Let it Go

I’ll Get Away 4:09 Where the River Runs Cold 3:16Winds of Change 4:50 Rainbows 2:58
Summer Camp 3:32 Middle Fork 3:51By My Side 3:31Colorado 3:29Peace of Mind 3:32
Light & Love 3:57 Let it Go 2:25

Sorry, I haven’t had much time lately. I wound up in the mix of releasing a book, doing some readings, trying to figure out what I am going to teach for a writing fellowship, critiquing short stories, getting prepped for an important conference, publishing some things for the Florida State Poets Association and attempting to build a publishing company. And, I don’t even really work.
This one I completely chose by the name. I looked down my list and this band sounded like the mellowest Americana band that could help me sink into my bed and catch some shut eye to. I’ll Get Away, catches my mood exactly. The nice acoustic free flowing jam really sets that feeling down deep in your soul. It reaches inside you and pulls out those trappings of the daily grind.
Where the River Runs Cold, comes up next; the area where this band originates from I know all too well, so maybe I can picture the lyrics to this one better than most. Even if I didn’t I could picture myself seeing this band live. Winds of Change, really introduces the dobro. It keeps the strength and speed of the album but the dobro really stands out and drives this tune.
All of a sudden, the album slows to almost a pure country. Rainbows, take the vocals deeper and add the dreamer. It brings the album deep into the Americana poetry of songwriting. That skill that draw so many of us to follow this genre, or style of music because seriously it has spread worldwide with great international artists as well.
Normally, I never look up a band until I’ve at least listened to them and come up with a question I needed answered. But, this one I cheated on and that is where I came across the video for, Summer Camp. I really suggest everyone does. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. In the lyrics the singer reminisces on his fond memories of youth.
Middlefork, is another great display of the dobro. It’s an instrumental that pulls the term into an entirely different class. It takes you into peaks and canyons, tapering peacefully off into that valley.
Light & Love, is a mix of styles unlike anything I’ve ever heard. It’s jam band/country/bluegrass/Americana. I really think if you wanted to give it a term for a genre you would have to make your own one up.
Let it Go, is the title track. Maybe it was chosen for the fiddle or the harmonizing, I thought there were other songs on the album that probably would have held the name of title track better. But, I didn’t write the album, sing the songs, put it together or produce it.
To me this is a must get album. I would love to get to catch a live show of these guys. The mix of banjo, dobro, fiddle and stand up bass must be a sight to overpower the senses. Add that to the rhythm and harmony, and one must feel like they’ve stepped into the pages of a story that has yet to be fully told.

Lara Landon Finds that ‘There Is Grace’ with New Album

Lara Landon Finds that ‘There Is Grace’ with New Album

Three weeks after the unexpected death of her father, Lara Landon is moving forward with plans to release her new album on September 9th as a tribute to the man that helped inspire it.


(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) -- Singer-songwriter Lara Landon will release her new album, There is Grace, on September 9th via The Fuel Music. But while the weeks prior to the album’s release were to be filled with endless album publicity and promotion, Lara is instead finding comfort in the arms of her family, following the unexpected death of her father on August 12th.

Lara is taking a break from pre-release promotion to tend to family obligations in California, but quickly made it clear to her Nashville-based team that she wanted to go ahead with the album release as scheduled. “I want to go ahead with the release because he was and is my biggest fan and supporter and he would want me to.”

While there are already fan favorites and the lead single, “There is Grace,” is already headed to radio stations, one song in particular has special significance to Lara. She wrote “I Want to Know You” for her father, and was able to share it with him before he passed. Explains Lara, “He’s shown me God and that’s what the song I wrote about him was about. I want to know and love God as much as my dad.”

Lara teamed up with producers Otto Price, Michael Farren and Evan Sieling to begin recording her new, fan-funded eleven-song project which will be released and distributed by The Fuel Music (Gungor, John Mark McMillan, TFK, Bethel Music). Stylistically, There is Grace runs the gamut of folk-inspired singer-songwriter tracks integrating acoustic guitar and cello to cinematic beat-driven pop. What gives the album coherence is Lara’s heartfelt, raw and vulnerable lyrics.

"I've been working on this album for two years with my own hopes, reasons and expectations for it, but I had no idea the very songs I wrote would be what I needed to hear myself right now,” says Lara. "The message of Grace is going to be more powerful than ever because it's so real to me now, more real than I ever imagined it would be when I wrote this album.”

The album’s main theme is the promise that there is Grace enough to fill any loss, which resonates with Lara in her own life more than she could have ever anticipated. Says Lara, “These songs give me purpose even though it's a scary time and even more faith than ever that God is good and merciful. I'm blessed to have known God through my dad, and I’m not bitter that he was taken away so soon. I can truly say God's grace is sufficient.”

Born and raised in Southern California, Lara landed in Nashville at the age of nineteen without knowing a single person or having any idea how to pursue a career as a musician. But within a year, she had made coveted connections with many of the city’s musical veterans, and she began writing with award-winning songwriters like Jason Ingram, Christa Wells and Tiffany Lee of Plumb. Much in the vein of Sarah McLachlan and Tracy Chapman, Lara writes from the darker shades of her personality. "I believe that its better to feel something strong than nothing at all. And in those places where I doubt, I am most reminded to reach out to God. When I work through my thoughts in my songs, it helps me to sort through the feeling and come back to the truth.''

Lara’s debut album, Beloved, was produced by GRAMMY® award-winning talent Michael Omartian (Amy Grant, Christopher Cross, Rod Stewart). The album resonated with fans as they, too, discovered how they could become His beloved thanks, in part, to successful radio single “Closer,” which stayed on the charts for most of 2010. Her second full length project, Overcome, was named “one of the top Christian albums of 2012” by iTunes.

JASON ALDEAN PREMIERES STEAMY NEW MUSIC

JASON ALDEAN PREMIERES STEAMY
NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR

Nashville, TN – August 29, 2014 – Two-time ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Jason Aldean is premiering the music video of his red-hot new single, “Burnin’ It Down” today on E!. The new track serves as the lead single off Aldean’s upcoming sixth studio album on Broken Bow Records and has held the No. One position on Billboard's Country Singles Chart since release, earning GOLD certification in only three weeks.

Directed by Wes Edwards and shot in Nashville, TN earlier this month, the smoldering video features a signature live performance from Aldean and his long-time band delivering a bold, pyro-driven punch.
 
Aldean was recently recognized as the top selling male country artist in the digital era with sales totaling over 21 million downloads. He is currently rounding out his unforgettable BURN IT DOWN2014 TOUR, which has two upcoming sold out nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater following sell-outs across the country and stops at five baseball stadiums.

Jenny Casey kommt ursprünglich aus Oklahoma. Diese 12 Songs erzählen mehr oder weniger ihre eigene Lebensgeschichte, ihre Erfahrungen als Mutter von 4 Kindern, Arbeit und gleichzeitigem Studium. Mit 31 Jahren begann sie, durch dieses Leben inspiriert, die ersten Songs zu schreiben. Die Familie übersiedelte nach Nashville, sie arbeitete als Lehrerin und fand trotzdem noch Zeit, abends in irgendeinem Lokal auf die Bühne zu gehen um zu spielen. Und erst jetzt fand sie das richtige Publikum. Ihr Kindheitstraum hatte sich erfüllt.

Diese Tracks sind manchmal etwas schrill, auf jeden Fall sehr rockig, gut für die Linedancer, aber es gibt auch sentimentale Stücke, z. B. Track 3: Flour Sack Dress, in dem sie über die Geschichten ihrer Großmutter erzählt. Oder Track 9: My Boy, über den Schulwechsel und die Gefühle wenn Kinder aus dem Haus gehen. Den letzten Titel schrieb sie für ihre eigene 40er-Geburtstagsparty und ist stolz darauf, dass sie zuerst Kinder und Familie und erst danach die Karriere geschafft hat. Das kommt auch im Titel 6 über Loretta zum Ausdruck.

Eine interessante Lebensgeschichte und gut aufbereitete Songs. Alle Titel sind von ihr geschrieben, außer Track 4, 5, und 8, hier hatte sie den Co-Writer Steve Goodie dabei. Und bei Track 6 arbeitete sie mit Jerry Salley.
