Interview with JL Stiles

Interview with JL Stiles

Lamitschka:  Music has many new fans throughout Europe who may be hearing about you for the first time. How would you describe yourself and the music you play to someone who has never seen or heard you?

JL Stiles:  I’m basically a ragtime finger picker and country picker who who writes in his own style, creates new rhythms and melodies using those universal and fundamental techniques. I like to think listening to me is similar to going home.
Lamitschka:  How was the last year for you? What were your highlights?

JL Stiles:  The highlight was the show where I released my CD here in San Francisco, a little club called Cafe du Nord. We really did the new album justice playing it live and the crowd reaction was amazing.

Lamitschka:  What is your latest CD and how's it doing?

JL Stiles: My latest is JL Stiles Presents House of Murmurs

Lamitschka:  How did you choose the title for the CD?  Is there a story behind the name?

JL Stiles:  There is no big story behind the name other than it reflected the kind of eerie psychedelic nature of the record

Lamitschka:  Do you write the songs yourself? If not, how do you go about finding the songs for your CD?

JL Stiles: I write all my material

Lamitschka:  Please tell us about the songs on your album (influences, etc).

JL Stiles: There is a heavy influence of Maybelle Carter’s guitar style on this album though you might not peg it as such because there are no country songs on there and my rhythmic approach is much more varied.. I strum with the forefinger and pick with the thumb on many of the tracks. I also employ my Piedmont Blues style on here a la Mississippi John Hurt but again vary the rhythmic approach quite a lot so you may not recognize it. The Blind Blake thumbroll is employed on Song Beside My Grave to create the rambling rhythm yet I accent a different beat than he would have done. Basically I hear melodies and rhythms and these folkways styles provide me the tools to bring ‚em out on the guitar and sing ‚em.

Lamitschka:  What is the difference between your last CD and your current one?

JL Stiles: This CD was really played entirely live by me in studio with the drummer so it has an authentic groove over which we laid other stuff. I also had a producer named Etienne de Rocher on this who brought a consistency to the sound and he added some beautiful piano parts.
Lamitschka:  Your current single is being played by radio. What do you feel is special about this song that makes people want to hear it?

JL Stiles:  All in a Day is probably the single on this record but it seems DJ’s are playing quite a variety off the record. The song has an old soul but is very catchy with a straight bouncy rhythm and live feel. I also think the bridge on it is surprising yet natural, which I like.

Lamitschka:  What is your favorite song among all the songs you have recorded and what's the story behind it?

JL Stiles:  My favorite is probably Song Beside My Grave because it is the song I want people to play as a remembrance of me and there are few if any on earth who can play that style yet it is fundamental.

Lamitschka:  Do you have any interesting stories about how fans have been affected by your music?

JL Stiles:  Some have said they listened to me over and over when healing from life-threatending illness and claim my music really helped them recover. There is no higher honor than that as a musician.

Lamitschka:  Who inspires you musically and how deep do your musical roots run?

JL Stiles: Blind Blake is my biggest inspiration but he’s dead. Seeing a great performer live is always an inspiration. For instance, seeing Richard Thompson solo acoustic is an inspiration.

Lamitschka:  What do you think about today's music scene versus its post and where do you see it going in the future?

JL Stiles:  I have my local buddies here is SF who are awesome and no ones knows, such as Chris Jones and there is plenty of talent as there always will be. San Francisco is full of brilliant artists who are making no money. In the past it wasn’t any different, it seems. We have more outlets to get our music out there but there are too many artists right now. I basically ignore it all to remain sane and have some silence.



Lamitschka:  What do you think about today's music industry?

JL Stiles: I don’t think about it much at all. I am only interested in getting my music to people who want to hear it or find something new. Licensing music is bigger than ever which brings in money but again, the scene is overcrowded and few make any substantial income. Today is perhaps the worst time ever to be an artist. People are struggling under an international financial tyranny and we have little money to devote to supporting arts.

Lamitschka:  If you had the chance to change something about the music industry, what would it be?

JL Stiles:  I would destroy the use of money as an instrument and only use money to facilitate the exchange of goods and services. Essentially I would destroy all central banks.

Lamitschka:  Are you doing anything to take music beyond its current borders or are you happy where it is?

JL Stiles:  I am always looking to expand. I am planning an unlikely collaboration at present with a rock drummer star but I won’t say who it is as it will ruin the surprise. My next album will have lots of vocal harmonies and employ more innovation guitar techniques, via the remarkable Blind Blake thumbroll.

Lamitschka:  What inspired you to become an artist?

JL Stiles:  I am a seeker of the fundamental, the hidden nuggets of the universe and music is very much a part of that. I want to feel connected, ultimately, and ironically, in this age, such demands basically disconnecting with much of society as it is mostly distraction and slavery in disguise.

Lamitschka:  What inspired you to become a songwriter?

JL Stiles:  I guess it was Zeppelin II, the album, perhaps listening to Chuck Berry as a little kid. I always loved music and imagined it on my own.

Herrick Wins in 34th Annual Telly Awards

Herrick Wins in 34th Annual Telly Awards

“Do You Love Me” Garners Music Video Bronze Award for Nashville Band


Herrick_2013.jpgNashville, TN – The Telly Awards has named Nashville band HERRICK as a Bronze winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards for the music video for “Do You Love Me.” With nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents, the project won the Bronze Award in the Internet/Online Video-Music Video category.

Co-written by Donna and Kerry Herrick, “Do You Love Me” appears on the album NEW DANCE which was produced by Herrick with Music Row hit makers Michael Bonagura and Buddy Cannon. The single recently broke into the Top 100 on the Country Breakout Chart. The music video was directed by Robb Smith and produced by Blue Hawk Productions.

Herrick is comprised of Donna (mandolin/lead vocals), her husband Kerry Herrick (bass/vocals), percussionist/drummer Jeff Bradshaw and lead guitar player Jefferson Rogers.  The music is varied and diverse, mixing tradition with contemporary sounds. Donna shines with startling vocal range and power. Herrick’s dynamic live show has given the band a stronghold on the touring circuit with an average 125 shows a year. The band is known for compelling songwriting, comprehensive instrumentation, and killer harmonies.

Herrick previously won the prestigious Country Song Award in the 11th Annual Independent Music Awards (IMA) for “Cry Memphis,” which also appears on NEW DANCE. Earlier, Herrick’s dynamic musicianship and intricate harmonies proved to be a winning combination in the Jim Beam Battle of the Bands at the BamaJam music festival.

The Telly Awards program was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.

For its 34th season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People’s Telly Awards. In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners, the Internet community helps decide the People’s Telly Awards winners.

“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Herrick’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”

A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor. Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.

“We worked really hard on this video and the album as a whole,” Donna Herrick says. “We were in a really powerful period of growth musically, and kept discovering new directions. We wanted it to be the best it could possibly be for our fans; no cutting corners. The album was wonderful and painful and exciting; a true labor of love that was four years in the making. The video was great fun and is a solid representation of the song and our live performance.”

FRANK ORTEGA RELEASES “TWO PLACES AT ONCE” TO RADIO
 
Latin-American Singer Preparing New Tour and New Album For Fall Release
 
NASHVILLE, TN, May 23, 2013 … Villa One recording artist Frank Ortega is back on the country radar with the release of his much talked about new single, “Two Places At Once.” Penned by David Lee Murphy, Ira Dean and Kim Tribble, the tune is the lead single from Ortega’s highly-anticipated debut album slated for release later this year.
 
"Two Places at Once" is a song that everyone can relate to as, at one time or another, we have all wished we could be two places at once. Ortega's vocals will resonate with country music fans who appreciate the traditional sound with a touch of contemporary that will allow him to fit right in with the musical format.
 
“This song has no boundaries as it relates to everyone,” notes Ortega. “I look forward to sharing great American country music with everyone while also reaching out to my ever-growing Latin population who loves American country music.”
 
Frank Ortega has created quite a buzz in Nashville in recent years with his independent single “Hot Women Cold Beer,” which was produced by Grammy nominated singer/songwriter James House. The song went on to top the Indie World country music chart in 2009. His follow-up release, “Honky Tonk and the Altar,” showed a different side to the Arizona native, as it received rave reviews across the board within the country music industry.
 
As he continues work in the studio on his yet-to-be-titled debut album, Ortega is gearing up for his 2013 radio tour. Additional performances are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. For more information on Frank Ortega, visit www.frankortega.com.

Produced by Shannon “Fat Shan” Houchins, Noah Gordon and Jeffrey Steele, the album will be available everywhere music is sold.

Talented songwriters as well as entertainers, LoCash’s Chris Lucas and Preston Brust co-wrote ten of the twelve tracks on the album. Gifted songwriter, Jeffrey Steele, also contributed his writing talents on six tracks on the project. One of the highlights of the album is "Independent Trucker," featuring the late George Jones. The up-tempo country joyride and tribute to the “Possum” was one of the last tracks Jones recorded.

Written By Hitmakers Bryan White, Travis Thibodaux, Steve Williams

Mosca Makes CMA Music Festival Debut

 
Nashville, TN (May 23, 2013) -- Country newcomer Joanna Mosca's mesmerizing voice has been compared those of Reba McEntire and Stevie Nicks, but her vocals are distinctly her own on her newest single, "I Guess That Says It All."  Released May 13 on CDX Vol. 570, the poignant ballad was written by hitmakers Bryan White, Travis Thibodaux and Steve Williams. Resonating with honest emotion and a wealth of heartache, the tune is sure to engage listeners who have lived these lines before.

"I guess you're leavin'
You walked out the door
The ring on the table
Broken pictures on the floor
You can't do this anymore
I guess that says it all"

"When Bryan first played me this song I found the lyrics were real, raw and heartfelt, and it made me cry," Joanna comments.  "It's about a relationship that has ended, and there’s nothing you can do about it."  The single is from Joanna's dynamic White-produced EP, LET IT ALL BEGIN, and fans can enjoy an acoustic video performance at http://youtu.be/11p-fYWIbas.

Mosca will make her CMA Music Festival debut with three performances at:
Wednesday, June 5 -  between 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. CMR Nashville’s 3rd Annual International Show at Whiskey Bent Saloon

Thursday, June 6  - 5:00 - 6:00 p.m.  NCVB Stage (Bridgestone Glass Tower)

Sunday, June 9  - 2:30 - 2:50 p.m.  CMA Chevrolet Roadhouse Stage
Fans can stop by and meet Joanna at 10 a.m. on Sunday, June 9 at the CHEVY Booth in the Music City Center.
