THE ROOSEVELTS BRING “COLD SHEETS”

THE ROOSEVELTS BRING “COLD SHEETS” TO LIFE IN NEW MUSIC VIDEO  
 









 
Nashville, TN (September 8, 2014) – Soulful-duo, The Roosevelts debut the brand new music video for fan-favorite, “Cold Sheets,” exclusively on CMT Edge . The song serves as the title-track to their 2013 widely acclaimed Cold Sheets EP. Following the premiere, the video will be available across multiple media platforms.
 
Filmed outside of Houston, TX, the duo's Jason Kloess and James Mason teamed up with director Brad Linton, to bring “Cold Sheets” to life with a vulnerable setting of war. Capturing the sentiment of love torn apart, the video is filled with moving scenarios between a couple and vividly conveying the emotional impact combat can take on a relationship. Mason and Kloess play lead roles as soldiers in the army.
 
Reigning from Austin, TX, The Roosevelts have been touring non-stop and garnering buzz opening for popular acts such as Bob Schneider, JohnnySwim and Charlie Robison. This fall, they will be performing at multiple festivals including the 2nd Annual Garden and Gun Shoot, and the Rock Boat Festival. Known for their dynamic live show, The Roosevelts bring a simplistic and sultry vibe to the stage that sets them apart from the rest.

FRANKIE BALLARD DEBUTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO

FRANKIE BALLARD DEBUTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR TOP 15 & CLIMBING HIT “SUNSHINE & WHISKEY”
 








 
Nashville, TN (September 8, 2014) – Rising country music artist Frankie Ballard to world premiere the brand new music video for his Top 15-and-climbing hit “Sunshine & Whiskey” exclusively across CMT, CMT PureFrankieBallard.CMT.com and CMT Artists App today (9/8). The singer-guitarist was also tapped to be a part of CMT’s long-running LISTEN UP franchise, which launched last week at ListenUp.CMT.com.
 
Filmed in a small Pueblo village outside of Los Angeles, CA, temperatures rise high with the video’s sultry setting. Under the blazing desert sun, director Jack Guy weaves together vignettes featuring a classic sports car, beautiful lady, and whiskey, surrounded by Frankie and his guitar making it all come alive.
 
“Sunshine & Whiskey” has already sold well over 300,000 copies to date and follows his first #1, GOLD-certified smash “Helluva Life.” Both songs are from his latest album, SUNSHINE & WHISKEY (Warner Bros. Records), which ROLLING STONE COUNTRY noted as “required listening” and debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. Produced by Marshall Altman (Marc Broussard), the project highlights Ballard’s unique blend of blues-infused, country rock and his undeniable guitar prowess on every song.
 
This fall, the Battle Creek, MI, native will embark on his first headlining run – LIGHT ‘EM UP TOUR – as part of the exclusive Live Nation Ones To Watch with Skype tour that taps today’s hottest emerging artists.
 
Known for his energetic live shows, he has caught the eye of many superstars and landed coveted opening slots for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift and longtime idol Bob Seger.

9th Annual Smithfield Music's Aiken & Friends Fest


 
9th Annual Smithfield Music's Aiken & Friends Fest Gives The Gift Of Music To Area Students

Funds Raised During October 3-4 Event Will Provide Instruments, Tutoring & More To Local Youth 

Nashville, TN (September 8, 2014) -- The 9th Annual Smithfield Music's Aiken & Friends Fest  not only brings great music to this historic coastal Virginia town, but provides one-of-a-kind educational workshops targeted to independent artists, musicians and songwriters as well.  A charitable endeavor, the Fest, which runs October 3-4, benefits youth music education for local area students.  To date the annual event has raised over $40,000, with the money used to fund scholarships, provide tutors for gifted children and purchase instruments for Isle of Wight school students. 

"It is immensely gratifying to see our efforts manifest," notes Fest founder, performer and workshop host Mike Aiken.  "This year, one of our performers happens to be a talented singer/songwriter who attended my songwriting workshop last year."

The performer in question, Mollie Taylor, came for that workshop, took notes and, as Mike recalls, asked "great" questions.  Her attention to detail paid off, and this year she was added to the line-up by the entertainment committee from over 2100 applicants.  "We are drawing the young, the talented and the motivated; those eager to develop their skills," observes Amy Aiken, Fest organizer.  "Our goal is to have each individual leave a workshop excited and empowered about their music."


 
This year, Smithfield Music's Aiken & Friends Fest features the following workshops on Saturday, October 4 at Windsor Castle Park.


 
  • 11:30 a.m. / Guitar:  Hosted by Rich Eckhardt (Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, Mike Aiken).  Voted Best Instrumentalist in Nashville by the Nashville Scene in 2013, Rich is an acclaimed musician who has appeared on some of the world's largest and most prestigious stages.  A legendary performer, he comes to Smithfield with a wealth of talent and endless ability.  Eckhardt will share some of his signature riffs and tips, and will inspire players young and old to play at their best level.

  • 1 p.m. / Songwriting: Mike Aiken has six studio albums under his belt, has written with some of Nashville's most respected songwriters, penned music for TV, earned a first-round Grammy nomination for his current CD (CAPTAINS & COWBOYS), garnered #1s in Europe, and enjoyed chart activity with his songs in the U.S. and Europe.  Mike will answer questions about writing songs and the business of songwriting. 

  • 2:30 p.m. / Indie Music Promotion: NorthwindRecords' executive Amy Aiken will share the knowledge she has gained in her 12 years as head of a boutique Indie label that has enjoyed songs in the Top 30, implemented productive radio campaigns and organized popular tours in the U.S. and Europe.  Amy will answer questions and advise attendees on the tools that every artist should have in place in order to build a successful career in the music industry. 

This ever-growing Festival would not be complete without a stellar entertainment line-up and this year is no exception.  Performing are Fest founder and Northwind Records' artist Mike Aiken,  talented singer/songwriter Tim Buppert (Trisha Yearwood, Billy Ray Cyrus, Mike Aiken), Washington Area Music Association award-winning entertainer Patty Reese (2009 Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year), Folk/Rock/Americana duo Moors & McCumber, American Soul-inspired Caleb Hawley Band, popular Piedmont stylists M.S.G. Acoustic Blues Trio, area favorites Snuff Trio (featuring Chuck Larson, Norman Harrell & Robbie House), Mississippi native and Southern/Soul singer/songwriter Adrian Dickey, 16-year-old sensation Evan Button, the Mike Aiken Band, and local teen songstress Mollie Taylor.  Also appearing will be three songwriters who will compete for their stage slots via Fest open-mic nights scheduled throughout September.

 

Smithfield Music's Aiken & Friends Fest offers music lovers a chance to gather and enjoy historic Smithfield's convivial atmosphere, along with great local food and diverse artisan vendors.

CD: ALEX SMITH - Hamilton County


ALEX SMITH
Hamilton County
 
This Town - What I Need To Do - North Country Girl - Long Lake - Hard Hands - North Point Road - Tahawus - My Girls Waiting For Me - Raquette River - Adirondack Blues - Maybe The Next Place We Land - Hamilton County
 
Alex Smith is a young guy, 22 years old.  Makes his home in New York State's Adirondack Mountains, a place full of rivers, lakes, mountains, villages, and wilderness, all existing side by side.  Wepecket Records, a Massachusetts based independent label, was smart enough to pick this young man's recordings up.  Why?  Because this guy knows what 'real' music is.  Said best by Dan Berggren, an Adirondack folksinger..."These songs of Alex Smith stretch the expectation of what fresh, new music can say about ancient hills, the communities they hold, and their stories."  THAT'S THE SECRET!  The 'stories' they hold.  Alex is a wonderful poetic writer that captures the words full of meaning, matching it with creative music that creeps quietly into the past at the same time it dances with the present, and sneaks a peek at the future.  Some absolutely wonderful musical expression on this CD, no doubt about that, all of the music makers are tuned in to Alex, and they are doing him fine justice.  I was nabbed from the very first song, nice up-tempo, incredible picking, here's just one verse from a very nice 'story' song.  "There's a road, it carried lumber in another life.  Now it's cracked and heaved, the frost it cut through it like a knife."  See what I mean, what he says with just a few words, a whole big real to life STORY in just a few precious words. I like everything Alex is doing with his writing, his melodies, and the way he 'git's er done' as we sometimes say here in the cornfields of Iowa.  Let me repeat, for it's true with every song.  He lets his music and words creep quietly into the past.  Some of his work is very historical, iron mines and all.  He lets his words dance with the present, cause he has some very personal words to sing to us, and certainly he sneaks a peek into the future as any prophet should do.  This CD won't have any trouble getting some recognition, especially from the Rural Roots Music Commission. I don't always list the music makers, but these players are special:  Alex does his own vocals and plays guitar.  Dylan Rice does some back-up vocals as well as mandolin and electric guitar.  Jake Brillhart is on the violin, and Don Barry is on the Bass.   Boy are they in tune with each other.  A good job well done.
