KEANE – CAUSE AND EFFECT

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

KEANE – CAUSE AND EFFECT

Keane's piano‐driven pop/rock is created by vocalist Tom Chaplin, drummer Richard Hughes, and pianist Tim Rice‐Oxley, three childhood friends from the small town of Battle in East Sussex, England. Formed in 1997, the group started out as a college‐aged cover band. Guitarist Dominic Scott was also part of this early incarnation, having previously played cover songs with Hughes and Rice‐Oxley in a band named the Lotus Eaters. Keane toured the East Sussex circuit for several years while internalizing the epic sounds of their set list, which included songs by Oasis, U2, and the Beatles. The quartet began performing original material in 1998, although Chaplin left for Edinburgh University shortly thereafter to study art history. The move proved to be brief, as he returned to London in 1999 and doubled his efforts with Keane. Buoyed by Chaplin's tenor vocals and Rice‐Oxley's inventive keyboard effects, the group made its studio debut in 2000 with a self‐released single, "Call Me What ...

BRUCE COCKBURN – CROWING IGNITES

BRUCE COCKBURN – CROWING...

In 2005, Bruce Cockburn released Speechless, a collection of instrumental tracks that shone the spotlight on the singer-songwriter’s exceptional acoustic guitar playing. The album earned Cockburn a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Instrumentalist and underscored his stature as one of the world’s premier pickers. More than 40 years since he embarked on his singer-songwriter career, Cockburn continues pushing himself to create—and winning accolades in the process. Most recently, the Order of Canada recipient earned a 2018 Juno Award for Contemporary Roots Album of the Year, for Bone on Bone, received a Lifetime Achievement Award from SOCAN, the Peoples’ Voice Award from Folk Alliance International and was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2017. Now, with the intriguingly titled Crowing Ignites, Cockburn has released another dazzling instrumental album that will further cement his reputation as both an exceptional composer and a picker with few peers. Unlike Speechless, which included mostly previously recorded tracks, the latest album—Cockburn’s 34th—features 11 brand new compositions. Although ...

THE LUMINEERS – III

THE LUMINEERS – III

Two-time GRAMMY and JUNO-nominated band The Lumineers are back with their third album, III, a cinematic piece presented as a narrative in three chapters, with each one centering on one main character. III’s concept began while the band was writing in the Catskill mountains, where producer Simone Felice works. Decidedly darker than their previous work in concept, but replete with their trademark expressive vocals and dynamic arrangements, III boldly and expertly goes in an artistic direction not yet traveled by the band. The Lumineers have enjoyed substantial commercial success: their 2012 self-titled debut album featured the hit single, “Ho Hey” and was certified triple-platinum in the US in 2018, and quadruple-platinum in Canada. The same year their 2016 sophomore album, Cleopatra, was certified platinum (U.S.) and double-platinum in Canada, hitting #1 simultaneously on the U.S. Billboard Top 200, Top 200 Soundscan Chart (Canada) and the Official Albums Chart Top 100 (UK). ...

EMELI SANDE – REAL LIFE

An R&B singer/songwriter and soul‐jazz artist with a highly resonant voice and diverse set of cross‐genre musical influences, Emeli Sandé broke through with her hit 2012 debut Our Version of Events.

Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis elaborated on the forthcoming album: “Deep, within our Earth lives an extraordinary force. Very few are aware of the magnitude and significance of this place where good/evil, dark/light, bliss/torment, loss/gain and hope/despair all exist as one- pulling at us every moment of our lives. It’s not something we can choose to navigate, but rather an awareness of this ‘presence’ that surrounds us with every breath, as if we are being watched at every moment. It’s the place ...

THE GLORIOUS SONS – A...

“100 Mph. Off the road and into the studio. This is what it sounds like for us. A friend in another band keeps telling us to ‘take care of ourselves’. I’m not sure we’re all that healthy. But we’re having the time of our lives. For however long that is, I don’t know. That’s what makes this so much fun. The illusion of freedom is enough. These are some stories I’ve heard. Some I’ve lived. Some we’ve all lived. I’m not sure how else to describe this album. Rock and Roll in 2019. September 13th.” – Brett Emmons, The Glorious Sons JUNO Award winners The Glorious Sons announce the worldwide release of their perceptive and insightful new album ‘A War On Everything’ ‐ out September 13th on Black Box ‐ a daring 14‐track collection of stadium‐ready, “dirty, sweaty rock” (Alternative Press), rife with devastating moments of vulnerability and searing insight into universal truths about anxiety, sadness and ...

EMMA FRANK – COME BACK

“With her delicately sweet vocals accompanied by simple yet powerful piano, drum beats, and guitar strums, Emma Frank has made ‘I Thought’ into one of 2019’s most gorgeous tracks.” – Atwood Magazine New York-based singer/songwriter Emma Frank’s music might sound like folk, jazz, even R&B depending on when a listener walks into the song. It’s music that never stays put, full of moving parts, shifting tempos, and winding melodies. Having recently signed to Justin Time/Nettwerk Music Group, Emma Frank’s previous releases have earned her rave reviews – including four stars from DownBeat for her 2018 release Ocean Av. The evolution continues with her fourth and most ambitious full-length recording to-date Come Back. Says Frank, “I’m interested in the intersection between folk song and contemporary jazz. In this collection of songs, we play with odd meters and tempo shifts, and the emotional interest lies partly in improvised orchestration, while staying true to a song form ...
