Eric Ethridge EP on CD NOW...

Eric Ethridge started to gain serious momentum in 2015 after the release of a series of orchestra country-pop covers, one of which garnered him a mention in Rolling Stone Magazine. Having built his brand on an electrifying stage presence and unique vocal ability, in early 2016 Eric was selected by a panel of 45 music industry professionals from across Canada to be one of the top 6 finalists for the CCMA Discovery Program. After a final showcase of the top 6 emerging artists, Eric then went on to win the 2016 CCMA Discovery Award and was deemed the top emerging country artist in 2016. He has since become a new addition to The Feldman Agency and Watchdog Management. In 2017, Eric teamed up with Juno award-winning producer/songwriter Brian Howes to produce his debut single, “Liquor’s Callin’ the Shots”, peaked at #30 on the Canadian Country Charts, a rare achievement for ...

JUSTICE – WOMAN WORLDWIDE

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

JUSTICE – WOMAN...

Woman Worldwide album, a new live studio recording of their 2016 album Woman along with standout tracks from their 10 year career. The new album was a result of Xavier and Gaspard adapting their new songs to be played on tour, in the process discovering a new dimension of their live form. After one year of testing, performing, refining and recording them on the road, they went back to the studio in Paris to give them the polish and precision that live performance doesn’t always allow. Making a new album of re-envisioned songs inspired by their love of the live show is also in line with Justice’s release history thus far, which has seen them put out two studio albums each followed by a live recording. But, rather than repeat themselves, they have made Woman Worldwide sound like a proper studio album whereas A Cross The Universe and Access All Arenas purposely sounded like bootlegs. The new set also fittingly ...

MAJOR LOVE – MAJOR LOVE

Major Love is the moniker of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Colleen Brown and members of Scenic Route To Alaska, Jesse And The Dandelions, Elijah Abrams, and Aaron Goldstein, who make soulful pop-rock for hosers. With tracks from their self-titled EP “So Good” and “Tear It Down” already in heavy rotation on CBC Radio 2, both making their way onto the CBC Music Top 20 charts, the band is now launch it’s next single, “Toughen Up”. Major Love was conceived in the lamplight of London’s Bedroom Bar during Brown’s first tour overseas. Fellow Edmontonians, Scenic Route To Alaska, were also wrapping their first tour in Germany and the UK. The two acts found themselves on the same dimly lit stage in Shoreditch, 7000 kms from their hometown, bonding over an appreciation of vintage Harmony guitars, singalong pop/rock anthems and an affinity for the spacious, soulful recordings released on the Stax and Motown labels in ...

ALICE IN CHAINS – RAINER...

RAINIER FOG marks a few firsts for the band: in addition to being their first album in five years, it’s their first album with BMG and their first time recording in their hometown of Seattle in more than 20 years (worth noting that the album title is a tribute to Seattle). They recorded at Studio X, the same facility where they tracked 1995’s self-titled ALICE IN CHAINS album (back when the studio was known as Bad Animals). The RAINIER FOG recording process also saw the band spend time at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles and at the Nashville studio of producer Nick Raskulinecz. RAINIER FOG is the third straight ALICE IN CHAINS album recorded with producer Nick Raskulinecz and engineer Paul Figueroa. The album was mixed by Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool). RAINIER FOG follows 2013’s Grammy nominated The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, which entered Billboard’s Top ...

JASON MRAZ – KNOW.

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

JASON MRAZ – KNOW.

As Mraz’s first full-length studio recording in over four years, Know. serves as a follow-up to his 2014 LP YES!. The bulk of the album was written against the backdrop of the 2016 Presidential election and its aftermath, where Mraz found himself writing a great deal of "frustrated, angry, even sad songs, but nothing I wanted to sing." Instead he chose to convey an uplifting, positive message – a tone that is evident throughout. Mraz introduced the album’s theme with the current smash single, “Have It All,” originally conceived after Mraz received and translated a blessing from a Buddhist monk during a personally moving visit to Myanmar in 2012. Other notable songs include “Making It Up” — a collaboration with his songwriter friend Bob Schneider, and “Better With You,” which was inspired by his marriage. “As I thought about the next chapter, what kept occurring to me was the idea of being ...
