Release Date - 17 May 2011

On this her sophomore album Wimberley, Texas native, multi-instrumentalist and bluegrass prodigy Sarah Jarosz will release, this new collection, less than a week before her 20th birthday. On her debut SONG UP IN HER HEAD she choose to adopt an traditional approach but here with FOLLOW ME DOWN she spreads her wings exploring new avenues, trying out fresh ideas with joyful abandonment.

Having moved from her Texas home to live in Boston, where she is studying at the New England Conservatory (The oldest independent school of music in America), this 11 track recording represents a new phase in her life. Due to her academic obligations the recordings had to scheduled, mostly taking place in Music City along with sessions in New York and Boston where she was able to call upon her tour support trio buddies Alex Hargreaves (fiddle) and Nat Smith (cello). Jarosz is credited as the album producer ably assisted by Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Chris Thile) as co-producer.

With the erratic beat of drums (Shannon Forrest) and innovative improvisation by proficient banjo player
Béla Fleck this demonstrates the sonic experimentation on the first single ‘Come Around’. It’s a personal song, trying to make sense of the twists and turns in a relationship. Sarah’s voice is distinctive, whilst capturing the anxiety of those feelings, and it shows a level of maturity beyond her years. Darrell Scott adds vocal harmony on this mid-paced affair.

The gorgeous, airy and atmospheric opener ‘Runaway’ evolved in a writing session whilst experimenting with different tunings with young songwriter Alyssa Bonagura the daughter of Kathie Baillie and Michael Bonagura who were the major players in American group Baillie & the Boys, popular in the late 80’s and early 90’s. The tune tells a romantic tale on a moonlit starry evening as a couple escapes to affirm their love. Delightful touches are evident via John Leventhal (electric guitar), Nathaniel Smith (cello), and Viktor Krauss (bass) while Shawn Colvin adds harmony, continuing the trend of top names to grace this album. In fact this track is something that would not be out of place on a Colvin project.

On the raucous ‘Annabelle’ here she adapts an Edgar Allen Poe poem for this bluegrass-inspired offering. It features the unmistakable harmony of Dan Tyminski. Fellow Union Station member Jerry Douglas (lap steel) interplays with Jarosz showcasing her claw-hammer banjo aptitude, to create a strong Celtic brew.

The softly ‘Ring Them Bells’ is one of two compositions that Jarosz did not have a hand in. A favourite Bob Dylan song for her, “the lyrics pertain to our time” she says. A song she always looks forward to performing at her live shows, whether she can call up the much in demand Vince Gill (harmony vocal) every night is another matter.

Growing up listening to many music styles Sarah decides to give a modern-day bluegrass twist on the Radiohead number ‘The Tourist’. She is joined by The Punch Brothers whose member Chris Thile she met jamming backstage at a festival, to whom she cites as a major influence in pushing her own musical boundaries.

Self penned album highlight ‘My Muse’ is a haunting, dreamy masterpiece which immediately draws you in with her compelling vocal. It’s easy to lose yourself in a world of contentment on this acoustic gem. The feeling is beautiful and effecting – the songs you write, the joy you bring Miss Jarosz!

The floaty ‘Here Nor There’ allows beating rhythms to challenge the deepest sea waves but as they reach a distant shore perhaps on this occasion the listener’s attention is in danger of getting washed up like driftwood.

Like a back-porch session observing a beautiful traveller across the way, the sparse and wispy ‘Gypsy’ brings to mind Mindy Smith as it’s both crafted and vocally delivered very much in her vein – no bad thing!

The fast paced ‘Old Smitty’ and in contrast the delicate slow tempo closer ‘Peace’ are two instrumental pieces, one showing an adventurous groove the other a soft virtuosic delight.
One wonders if Alison Krauss may be seeking a new female recruit to her fold. When comparing the two, Jarosz doesn’t quite match her spell-weaving impact but is most certainly worthy of immediate attention by music lovers in the UK especially with a July 2011 tour on the horizon, including a stop off at The Summertyne Festival in Gateshead.

THE AWARDING-WINNING SISTER TRIO, THE MCCLYMONTS, IS BACK IN THE USA FOR NATIONAL TOUR AND NEW RELEASE
 
CMT To World Premiere New Single and Video “Wrapped Up Good” on May 13 and Debut in Heavy Rotation on CMT PURE May 16
 
NASHVILLE, TN (May 12, 2011) – Australia’s award-winning country trio, The McClymonts, are back in the USA with a brand new single and video, “Wrapped Up Good,” from the group’s forthcoming US release,  that will be world premiere throughout specific CMT properties beginning May 13th.  CMT will World Premiere “Wrapped Up Good,” on their phone application May 13-15th and go live with the video online and will launch the video in heavy rotation on CMT Pure on May 16th.  The single will be available at country radio in June. Hot shot producer Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift) is at the helm of the recording, along with the sisters, Brooke, Mollie and Sam.  The trio will begin a national touring schedule in June and plan to relocate to Nashville as they move forward with the country music career. The release will be available in the US and on various online outlets in June. Fontana will distribute the release in the US.
 
“We are thrilled to be back in the States this summer. In fact, we are moving to Nashville in June and are looking forward to becoming a part of the Nashville community.  We had such a great time last fall while touring with Jason Aldean that we have been chomping at the bit to get back to the States.  The fans were so welcoming and gracious and we are excited to be bringing our new music,” says the sassy sister-trio from their homeland.  “We will hit the ground running in June with the release of “Wrapped Up Good” and are ready to take it to the road.”
 
“CMT is a real partner here,” says Steve White, the group’s manager.  “They are providing us a great platform to launch the new single and video here in the US and appreciate their belief in our music,” he continues.   Look for more exciting news to be announced soon on the group’s video and other marketing opportunities.
 
The McClymonts enjoyed a lot of accolades during their debut in the US last year.
 
The Boot:
"They're a well-established (and multiple-award-winning trio) in their Australian homeland, but for the McClymonts, conquering country music in the U.S. is an entirely new challenge. But with wit, energy, beauty and charm to spare, sisters Mollie, Brooke and Sam put a fresh 'down under' spin on country that already has audiences here taking notice. They've even 'opened' for Ozzy Osbourne!" ~ Stephen L. Betts
 
Urban Country Blog:
"With magical melodies and heavenly harmonies, their US debut music is sparkling country music and the perfect introduction to the world of The McClymonts!"
 
RoughStock:
"It’s one of the strongest, most well-made albums of the past few years and hopefully it will help bring The McClymonts some success in the world’s largest music economy." ~ Matt Bjorke
 
Digital Rodeo:
"The fabulous vocal blends on this album are something rarely found and most of the time limited to siblings only. Beautiful voices, good mix of musical instrumentation and great choice of songs make for an award winning album." ~ Amanda Johnson
 
Today’s Country Mag:
"...no matter the tempo of the song the musicianship and three-part harmonies...and will blow you away as you listen to them..."

Steel Guitar News

Hello fellow players,

I started a couple weeks ago doing the history of some of the players of steel guitar.  One interesting player in Nashville that has left us now was the great Hal Rugg.  Hal was a very competitive steel player in Nashville and was always on a quest to have a better guitar, which included searching high and low, finding something great and trying to improve on it.

The Sho-Bud company located at 416 Broadway in downtown Nashville with satellite factories on the north and south side of town were great places for Hal to experiment.  He was the right person to do this kind of experimenting because he worked the Opry as a staff player and did many recording sessions throughout the week.  

Hal and David Jackson, who was the main driving force behind this company, were in close cahoots and shared many ideas on some very interesting approaches to building steel guitars.  

About the time that many of the players were switching over to Emmons guitars, Hal thought that there was no reason to do this if the right model Sho-Bud could be designed and built.  So he and David decided to build some experimental guitars that similar building processes that the Emmons company was using, one of which was the aluminum neck, something that Sho-Bud had never done up until this time.

The first guitar that was built by and for Hal to try to accomplish this feat was a brown double ten with eight pedals and four knee levers.  I remember hanging around the factory when this guitar was going together.  I made the comment to David that I was sure he could find some nicer looking formica to put on the guitar than that ridiculous brown simulated birdseye that he had.

David�s reply was, �We�re not building this guitar to look good.  We�re building it to be a better sounding guitar and we�re just experimenting with brown mica and aluminum necks.  The next time I saw this guitar, I was playing the Opry with Billy Walker and Hal had the guitar there and was using it with acts that he was backing up.  It sounded wonderful on the Opry, but Hal took a lot of verbal abuse because of the strange looking brown mica on the guitar.

So he went back to David at Sho-Bud and said, �Let�s build one just like it but put some beautiful black shiny mica on it instead of the brown.�  Six months later it was done.  Hal played the black one for awhile and claimed to really love it, but ended up going back to the brown one and using it until many people started ordering identical guitars from Sho-Bud.

At this time, David Jackson called Hal and told him to bring the guitars back to the store because too many people were asking for steel guitars like this but the factory wasn�t building them.  

Besides, David had an idea for a revolutionary new guitar that had a changer at both ends of the guitar.  The guitar raised at the right end by the pickup and lowered strings from the other end which was normally the keyhead end.  Hal and myself went into the factory to check this unit out.  Hal took it straight to the Opry and played it several times before David called him and told him he�d built a couple more and wanted Hal to try them out.

David ended up building six keyless guitars in all, but none of them were ever actually sold to any customers outside of Nashville.  A few years later I ended up buying the two double neck Sho-Buds and all six keyless guitars when I was in my Goodlettsville store.  I bought these along with many other experimental guitars that David was working on at the time.

I bought barrels of parts, tons of birdseye maple and many truckloads of parts and added this bevy of parts and guitars to stock in my Goodlettsville store.  It was ten years before I had most of these sold off.  I remember Johnny Cox buying one of the best keyless guitars that David had built and I actually converted a couple of them back to models that had keyheads and tuning keys.

I sold the famous brown double neck guitar to a gentleman in Nashville named Pete Harris.  He was rather old and retired and really didn�t play much.  He sold it to a guy named Larry Johnson.  Larry was just a student guitar player and left it in a building that he had rented and lost it when he didn�t pay the rent on the building.  I ended up buying the guitar back from his landlord.

I sold the guitar to a recording company here in Hendersonville, Tennessee.  Then it was sold to a preacher in South Dakota and as luck would have it, he traded this guitar back in to me for the much nicer looking black guitar that Hal Rugg had second.

I have talked with David Jackson and we have decided to totally restore the brown one to better than new specifications, cosmetically anyway.  Hal Rugg went back to using a sixties model permanent setup double ten sandalwood brown Permanent guitar on a lot of the video clips that you can see now on YouTube.

These two guitars with the mica and aluminum necks turned out to be the forerunner of the Sho-Bud Pro III model.  Later they were scaled down in dimension and they were turned into what is now called the Super Pro.  So as you can see, Hal Rugg played about anything that Sho-Bud was building on an experimental basis.

Hal had a little to do with how David built these guitars, but David Jackson that was the president of Sho-Bud was actually the father of all these models.  He built them all himself with a little help from Hal, Duane Marrs and the production staff at Sho-Bud at the time.

The story of all these experimental guitars is pretty well unknown to the masses and is the stuff of many rumors over the years.  Many people that think they know a lot about what went on, don�t even have a clue.  Every once in awhile I�ll see a statement on Ebay or the Steel Guitar Forum where someone will post Sho-Bud never did anything like that.  Well I�m here to tell you, David Jackson at Sho-Bud did almost everything.  Many great ideas sprung from the fertile mind of this young genius and Hal was right there to prove or disprove the validity of many of these designs.

It�s unbelievable what great guitars were designed fifty years ago and graced the stage of the Grand Ole Opry under the hands of Hal Rugg, Buddy Emmons, Shot Jackson, Ron Elliott, myself and many others.  In the very beginning when Sho-Bud started, players like Howard White, Porter Wagoner�s steel player Don Warden, Buddy Emmons, Hal Rugg and Pete Drake, Ben Keith, Jimmy Crawford and Weldon Myrick, these guys were the crusaders for Sho-Bud in the very beginning and the stage at the Grand Ole Opry was the proving grounds for many of the early Sho-Buds.

BETTER ANGELS’ COUNTRY NEWCOMER, DAVID ADAM BYRNES, RELEASES PREMIUM COUNTRY

BETTER ANGELS’ COUNTRY NEWCOMER,
DAVID ADAM BYRNES, RELEASES
PREMIUM COUNTRY
Couples Album Release With Sophomore Single, “She Only Wanted Flowers”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 12, 2011)—Keeping the momentum of success--making his mark in the country music genre--with his initial offering, Sweet Distraction,singer/songwriter, Better Angels Music Recording artist David Adam Byrnes is set to introduce his sophomore single, She Only Wanted Flowers going for adds next week.  The single release coincides with the announcement of the official release of his full-length debut, PREMIUM COUNTRY. Set to hit retail shelves and all major digital outlets on June 21, 2011, the album’s fourteen tracks (featuring ten “DAB” co-writes) are the mirror image of the young artist from Arkansas--a reflection of the good ole boy that mommas adore and the bad boy the gals will run away with.

­As the flagship country artist for Better Angels Music, label head Rob Rappaport discovered Byrnes, who was performing locally in Nashville. Moved to sign the young writer because of his remarkable voice and Byrnes’ passion to revive the sound of music makers who marked pages in country music history, Rappaport also signed on to produce the project. With cuts like “Maybe She Won’t Go,” “One Too Many Times” and “More Afraid Of Living,” the album in its entirety, appropriately titled PREMIUM COUNTRY, actualizes the authentic, traditional sound David Adam Byrnes was raised on.

“I was struck by the mere sound of David’s voice,” Rappaport explains. “He has the same vocal signature as the ‘80s class of hit makers--guys like Mark Chesnutt and Tracy Lawrence; a vocal chameleon, he is hauntingly reminiscent of Keith Whitley.  Add his writing chops and David Adam Byrnes is a talent the world should hear!”

“I definitely have a twang that does not lend itself to other genres!” Byrnes laughs. “Truthfully, the country lifestyle is what I know, what I was raised on and you didn’t dare touch that [country] radio dial in my house! I feel blessed to be an artist releasing an album honoring the ‘good stuff’ that I grew up on.”

David Adam Byrnes’ flirtatious first single, “Sweet Distraction,” hit country radio in late 2010 and ranked as the highest charting debut indie single of 2010 (Country Breakout Chart) and peaking on Music Row’s “Top 20.”  Byrnes hopes to continue as a “charter” through 2011 with his emotional ballad, “She Only Wanted Flowers” (co-written with Jay Brunswick and Adam Fears).

Featured as Track No. 3 on Byrnes’ PREMIUM COUNTRY, the tune is available now on Play MPE with an official add date of May 16, 2011(CDX Vol. 525 / 6/6/2011) The cut is the antonym of his first single, drawing out the pain of a relationship’s end and the powerful sting of hindsight--personified by a wailing pedal steel. Although the narrator’s love for his partner never wavered, he realizes too late what she wants and needs most is genuine love and small tokens of affection, namely flowers. “But she only wanted flowers…it’s the little things that matter…all the pretty things that money brings didn’t mean a thing…”

David Adam Byrnes returns from his radio tour in June to make special appearances at CMA Fest 2011 in Nashville.

Das Hitalbum „Rolling Papers“ ab morgen erhältich, im August wieder auf Tour in Deutschland

Wiz Khalifa: Ausverkaufte Show im Mai - Zusatzdaten im August
Das Hitalbum „Rolling Papers“ ab morgen erhältich, im August wieder auf Tour in Deutschland
"Da draußen vor den Leuten einfach 'The Man' zu sein" klingt vielleicht wie ein unklarer und auch lächerlicher Traum. Für Cameron Thomaz ist es vielleicht der angebrachteste Gedanke, den man überhaupt haben kann. Die Eltern beide im Militär, strebte der Mann – besser bekannt als Wiz Khalifa – schon immer danach, einen neuen Standard zu verkörpern, an dem man "cool" misst. Seit der dritten Klasse zu rappen und mit 14 zum ersten Mal Musik aufzunehmen war wohl ein Schritt in die richtige Richtung. Der nächstbeste Schritt? Nach einem Treffen mit Benjy Grinberg einen Deal mit Rostrum Records abschließen.

Gerade mit der Highschool fertig, war es an der Zeit, sich zu beweisen. 2005 veröffentlichte Wiz sein erstes Mixtape: Prince Of The City: Welcome To Pistolvania. Schnell war das Mixtape in der lokalen Szene akzeptiert und erregte auch außerhalb von Pittsburgh Aufsehen. Mit dieser stetig wachsenden Begeisterung im Rücken war die Zeit perfekt für ein anständig einträgliches Album. Wiz Khalifa brachte schon bald Show And Prove heraus, von Okayplayer.com als "wohl bestes Album des Jahres" bezeichnet. Das Lob häufte sich, und XXL, der Rolling Stone und VIBE reihten sich ein. Es folgte ein Deal mit Warner Bros. Records.
Jedem anderen 20-Jährigen wäre all der Hype wohl zu Kopf gestiegen, nicht aber Wiz Khalifa. Fokussiert wie immer, nahm er den Lobgesang zum Anlass, noch härter zu arbeiten. 2007 veröffentlichte Wiz mit ein wenig Hilfe des bekannten Mixtape-DJs Green Lantern Grow Season, wenig später dann Prince Of The City 2. Die Fortsetzung zu Prince Of The City begann den Vorgänger schnell zu überflügeln. Die Nachfrage nach Khalifas Musik war größer denn je.

Unglücklicherweise löste sich die Verbindung zwischen Khalifa und Warner Bros., und wieder einmal wurde Wiz Khalifa zum Independent-Künstler. In der Regel ist das eine Vollbremsung für jeden Künstler, Wiz Khalifa jedoch weigerte sich zuzulassen, dass das Fehlen eines Majorlabel-Deals seinen Schwung abbremste. Er und sein Rostrum-Team kamen 2009 auf den Füßen auf und brachten drei gefeierte Mixtapes heraus: Flight School, How Fly – ein Kollaborations-Mixtape mit dem New-Orleans-Rapper Curren$y – und Burn After Rolling. Das Album Deal Or No Deal folgte und stieg an der Spitze der iTunes-"Hip-Hop"-Charts ein. Bis heute ist es in den Top 50.

In den folgenden Monaten wuchsen sowohl seine Fanbase (bekannt als die "Taylor Gang") als auch die Vorfreude auf sein neues Mixtape täglich. Als Wiz Khalifa im Frühjahr 2010 dann Kush & Orange Juice herausbrachte, wurde klar, dass er sich als einer der größten jungen Stars etabliert hatte, die es zu beobachten gilt. Mit einer nie dagewesenen Anzahl von Downloads, ganz zu schweigen von sowohl der Top-Suche bei Google als auch dem heißen Twitter-Thema Nr. 1, sah es ganz so aus, als sei die gesamte Nation Teil der "Taylor Gang"-Bewegung geworden. Viele waren der Meinung, Kush & Orange Juice habe Wiz als Abschiedsredner seiner Klasse der "XXL Freshmen 10" ausgewiesen und habe ihm genau die Türen aufgetreten, durch die er und sein Team zu gehen gehofft hatten.

Ein paar weitere Monate vorgespult, und Wiz und Rostrum Records verkündeten stolz, diese Türen seien die von Atlantic Records gewesen, der neuen Heimat von Wiz Khalifa. Pünktlich zu diesem Karriere-Meilenstein brach Wiz Khalifa auf die berühmte "Rock The Bells"-Tour auf – an der Seite von Legenden wie Lauryn Hill und Snoop Dogg. Seine USA-weite Headliner-Tour folgte auf den Fuß, passenderweise unter dem Motto "Waken Baken Tour". Nach Respektsbekundungen von Rap-Veteranen wie Rick Ross und Diddy schlug Wiz Khalifa bescheiden Drakes Angebot aus, seine aktuelle Tour zu begleiten. Auch online wurde langsam ersichtlich, dass Wiz Khalifa zur großen Nummer geworden war – mit über 1.000.000 Freunden auf Facebook und über 500.000 Fans, die ihm auf Twitter folgen. Dann wurden dem Video für seinen ersten Atlantic-Release Black & Yellow 3 Millionen Views zuteil. Keine Frage: Wiz Khalifas Debütalbum wird etwas Großes werden.

Das Album „ROLLING PAPERS“ ist ab morgen, 13.05.2011 überall erhältlich

COUNTRY & WESTERN FRIENDS KÖTZ 1982 e.V. Country Music Termine


COUNTRY & WESTERN FRIENDS KÖTZ 1982 e.V. und das Kulturamt der Stadt Langenau laden am Freitag, den 20. Mai 2011 ab 20 Uhr zu Live Bluegrass Musik nach 89129 Langenau bei Ulm ein. Im Pfleghofsaal spielen Redgrass (CAN).

Von der Westküste Kanadas, aus Vancouver, kommt das Trio "Redgrass", das Bluegrass- und Old-Time-Music in einer großen Bandbreite anbietet, wobei offensichtlich die Harmonien der Brother-Duets aus den 30er und 40er Jahren Pate gestanden haben. Der "High Lonesome Sound" im Trio Gesang mit virtuoser Instrumentalbegleitung auf Banjo, Mandoline, Gitarre und Bass verbunden mit rasanten Up-Tempo-Songs, einem starken Bluesfeeling und einer witzigen Bühnenpräsenz lassen den Auftritt dieser Kanadier zu einem eindrucksvollen musikalischen Erlebnis werden. Hinterlässt schon das aktuelle Album "On That Good Road" überraschtes Erstaunen, so ist dies jedoch nur ein kleiner Eindruck von dem, was dieses Trio "live" auf der Bühne zu bieten versteht. Man muss diese drei Typen einfach erlebt haben mit Songs wie "Hydraulic Oil", "Big Round Moon" oder "Bluegrass Saved My Life".

Die musikalische Reise von Kris Boyd begann beim Winnipeg Folk Festival als er im Alter von 4 Jahren erklärte: "I want to play the banjo". 20 Jahre später spielte er Gitarre und Bass in Punk-, Blues-, Reggae- und Folk-Bands. Er wurde Ton-Ingenieur und als er zufällig eine Mandoline in die Hände bekam, erinnerte er sich an seine Jugendliebe, die Bluegrass Music, studierte Jazz am Vancouver Community College und landete bei "Redgrass".

Steven Charles , der 1999 sein Studium mit einem Diplom in Jazzgitarre abschloß, war zunächst spezialisiert auf Brasilianische Musik, bevor er 2005 die Liebe zur Bluegrass- und Old-Time-Music entdeckte. Er ist ein Multiinstrumentalist und spielt so ziemlich alles, was ihm mit Nylon- oder Stahlsaiten unter die Finger kommt, Piano, Banjo, Bass, Gitarre und Mandoline.

Sean Cronin begann mit dem Kontrabass im Alter von 12 Jahren und unterlag in seiner Jugendzeit den unterschiedlichsten musikalischen Einflüssen von Punk, Rock und Jazz bis hin zum ländlichen Finger-Picking-Stil seines Vaters, John Cronin. Seit Sean nach Vancouver zog, spielte er in den besten Bands dieser Westküstenmetropole und kam schließlich zu Redgrass.

Hinterlässt schon das aktuelle Album "On That Good Road" überraschtes Erstaunen, so ist dies jedoch nur ein kleiner Eindruck von dem, was dieses Trio "live" auf der Bühne zu bieten versteht. Man muss diese drei Typen einfach erlebt haben mit Songs wie "Hydraulic Oil", "Big Round Moon" oder "Bluegrass Saved My Life".

Die musikalische Reise von Kris Boyd begann beim Winnipeg Folk Festival als er im Alter von 4 Jahren erklärte: "I want to play the banjo". 20 Jahre später spielte er Gitarre und Bass in Punk-, Blues-, Reggae- und Folk-Bands. Er wurde Ton-Ingenieur und als er zufällig eine Mandoline in die Hände bekam, erinnerte er sich an seine Jugendliebe, die Bluegrass Music, studierte Jazz am Vancouver Community College und landete bei "Redgrass".

Steven Charles , der 1999 sein Studium mit einem Diplom in Jazzgitarre abschloß, war zunächst spezialisiert auf Brasilianische Musik, bevor er 2005 die Liebe zur Bluegrass- und Old-Time-Music entdeckte. Er ist ein Multiinstrumentalist und spielt so ziemlich alles, was ihm mit Nylon- oder Stahlsaiten unter die Finger kommt, Piano, Banjo, Bass, Gitarre und Mandoline.

Sean Cronin begann mit dem Kontrabass im Alter von 12 Jahren und unterlag in seiner Jugendzeit den unterschiedlichsten musikalischen Einflüssen von Punk, Rock und Jazz bis hin zum ländlichen Finger-Picking-Stil seines Vaters, John Cronin. Seit Sean nach Vancouver zog, spielte er in den besten Bands dieser Westküstenmetropole und kam schließlich zu Redgrass.
