Erisa Rei - BLACK BALL

BLACK BALL – neue CD von Erisa Rei, 2012


Elisa Rei, geboren und aufgewachsen in Illinois, begann ihre musikalische Laufbahn als Sängerin im Kirchenchor. Zu dieser Zeit fing sie an, Hymnen für die Kirche zu schreiben. So nach und nach wuchs ihre Liebe zur Musik generell und fand schließlich den Weg ins Roots-Rock/Americana Genre. Diesem Stil zugeordnet ist ihre neue CD mit dem Titel „Black Ball“. Derzeit lebt Erisa in Tennessee und ihre Texte sind alle aus ihrem bisherigen Leben gegriffen, sie werden sehr gefühlvoll bis impulsiv dargebracht.

Titel 1, 2, 5 und 8 sind rhythmisch und rockig, sehr gut zum Tanzen. Der Rest sehr langsam und zum Zuhören. Ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass diese Songs bei einer Live-Performance besser rüberkommen. Jedenfalls verspricht das ihre Stimme!

Die Titel:
  1. Gypsy In The Desert
  2. Black Ball
  3. Swing Back To Home
  4. Like Dominoes
  5. News To See
  6. Pushed
  7. To Bleed
  8. Cannot Change
  9. Sojourn Band
  10. Be Gone, Winter Long

Nashville, TN (August 1, 2013) – Florida Georgia Line's smash debut single “Cruise” has officially broken the record for the longest #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart in the 69-year history. Holding the summit for 22 weeks, "Cruise" shatters the four way tie for the 21-week record previously held by FGL; Webb Pierce’s "In the Jailhouse Now" (1955); Hank Snow’s "I'm Moving On" (1950-51) and Eddy Arnold’s "I'll Hold You in My Heart (Till I Can Hold You in My Arms)" (1947-48).
 
FGL has skyrocketed since releasing back-to-back, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada with the PLATINUM “Get Your Shine On” and 5X PLATINUM-certified “Cruise,” which combined with the remix, has sold over five million downloads and is the third-best-selling Country digital song ever, according to SoundScan. The breakout duo - comprised of Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida) - will perform their Top 15-and-climbing follow-up, “Round Here,” on Conan next Monday (8/5), airing on TBS at 11:00P ET/ 10:00P CT.
 
The ACM New Artist of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year winners are currently touring with Taylor Swift’s THE RED TOUR and Luke Bryan’s DIRT ROAD DIARIES TOUR in support of their GOLD-certified Republic Nashville debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES. FGL is already setting venue sales records for their first headline run, HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES TOUR 2013, this fall with Sears Centre Arena (Chicago, IL) selling out in less than 5 minutes and Whitaker Bank Ballpark (Lexington, KY) in 23 minutes.
 
Garnering buzz among fans, media and several Superstars across genres – including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Ed Sheeran – the hot newcomers most recently scored two CMT Music Awards for Duo Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year as well as four Teen Choice Awards nominations for  Choice Country Group; Choice Country Song (“Cruise”); Choice Summer Song (“Cruise” Remix f. Nelly) and Choice Summer Music Star: Group. Fans ages 13-19 can vote once a day via teenchoiceawards.com, with results airing August 11 at 8P ET on FOX.

Fired again for being too country!

Fired again for being too country.  This is Vic Lawson.

Yes folks, it’s true.  Another country band fired for being too country in Nashville.  I’ve been playing a few gigs here and there with a young man from California that enjoyed and loves playing traditional country and western swing music and we ended up playing a few gigs in Nashville recently.

He ended up picking up a month of Thursday nights at a club called Big Shotz on Second Avenue.  Our first night there was last Thursday night.  We played his normal set list which consisted of typical George Strait, Mark Chestnut, Keith Whitley and some originals.

The gig went well.  Then I got a call last night saying we were fired because we were too country.  This is getting more common in Nashville these days.  I can see that there should be a club or two that wants to have more pop style music, but nowadays, it’s the opposite.  There’s more pop style music and less traditional country.

I’m not sure about the rest of the country, but here in Nashville it seems the bartenders determine what kind of music is played above anyone else.  For example, one of the bartenders at Big Shotz looked like she fell in a tackle box with all the piercings and tattoos.

She said, “You all are good, but kind of boring.”  Even though we had a half capacity audience which we thought was good for a Thursday night.

Keep in mind this wasn’t some slouch band.  We had a session player, James Mitchell playing lead guitar.  Everybody in the band was a class A player.  I told Buck I was ashamed to live here from a steel players point of view.

With that being said, if you come to Nashville, don’t get your hopes up too much to find traditional country music.  I think it’s sad that people have let it come to this.

Here’s another story that underscores the developing situation in the Nashville music scene.

Ben Probus is Hoot Hester’s nephew.  Any Grand Ole Opry fan will recognize Hoot as the Opry staff band’s fiddle player.  Ben got the idea to have a jam session to help players who are new in town by giving them a chance to get up and play and show people what they can do and network and get known around town.

I was happy to be called to be the house band’s steel player.  I thought it would be a cool gig.  Of course, there were no new steel players to sit in which in itself didn’t surprise me.  However, what I was surprised about was that out of four hours, I only played on maybe eight songs.

Not that I couldn’t have played on some of them, but I felt a little out of place because no one there was singing anything country, nor did the drummers know any of the country feels for any of the songs we wanted to do as the house band.  Instead of a country jam, it ended up being a pop, rock and blues jam because that’s all these newcomers could play.

In fact, a good friend of mine, who is a female vocalist, came and put her name on the list to show support for Ben.  At one point after she’d been there for an hour and a half, she told me that she was going to leave because she felt that I was the only one in the place that knew her songs and I agreed.

So to make a long story short, instead of a country jam night in Nashville, it turned out to be a pop and rock jam night.  I don’t mean to sound like I dislike other genres of music.  That is not the case.  

From a steel players point of view, I felt out of place and I don’t think a steel player should feel that way being in Nashville.  I felt like I was in some place where steel guitar was a novelty.

I can’t understand why players come to Nashville thinking they’re going to break into the country music business and make a living without knowing how to play a country song when there’s a lot of country players who can’t make a living playing country music.

Enough about this subject.  I gotta keep my blood pressure under control.

I remember back in Oklahoma as a kid I had a gig about three hours from home.  As I loaded my gear, I noticed a spare amp that I had setting in the corner and thought to myself, I think I’ll just take both amps tonight and I ended up glad that I went with my gut feeling because about a set into the gig, my Session 500 gave up the ghost.

I was extremely glad that I had the spare amp which was actually a bass amp, but it got me out of what could’ve been a difficult situation.  If your amp lays down on you, you can’t usually run home and pick up a spare.  

Even though it’s rare that you’ll need it, it’s always good to have a spare amp and volume pedal available.  If you need a spare, we’ve got several used amps and volume pedals at this time and so our special this week is free shipping on all used amps shipped within the lower 48 States.  

As always, we have free shipping on our new amps within the lower 48 states in case you want a brand new one.

Remember, we cater to steel players, not sound men.
