RANDY HOUSER – FIRED UP

Randy Houser is a man refreshed. “I don’t know how it happened, but everything in my life has started lining up,” says the Lake, Mississippi native. “I must have done somebody right in the past.” Houser’s own past contains no shortage of achievement, including multiple nominations for ACM and CMA Awards, a #2 single in the form of “Boots On,” and songwriting credits for major names such as Trace Adkins, Justin Moore and Chris Young. In 2008—mere months after the release of his debut single, “Anything Goes”—Houser was even asked by David Letterman himself to appear on the Late Show. The singer’s first full-length, Anything Goes, came out later that year, followed in 2010 by They Call Me Cadillac. And yet despite this early success, Houser now admits that he wasn’t truly happy. “It seemed like professionally things weren’t as great as they could be, and that was part of it,” he says. “But the biggest thing was not having a homebase. I ...

JEFF BUCKLEY – YOU AND I

These 10 tracks have gone virtually unheard for more than two decades. Recently discovered in the Sony Music archives, the performances on You and I are a revelation, an intimate portrait of the artist performing a variety of cover songs and original music expressing a range of emotion channeled through his singular sensibility. Long rumored to exist, but previously unheard outside the studio, the performances on You and I have never been bootlegged or released to the public in any form. These seminal recordings are a fan’s Holy Grail, a rare opportunity to hear Jeff Buckley in peak form, developing his artistry through a series of spellbinding solo performances, each one captured in pristine sonic detail. Named One of Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, Jeff Buckley only completed one studio album, 1994’s Grace, before his life and career ended tragically with his accidental drowning in Memphis on May 29, 1997. The newly discovered studio recordings on You and I represent an essential addition ...

RAY LAMONTAGNE –...

Grammy Award winner Ray LaMontagne is set to release his sixth studio album ‘Ouroboros” on March 4th 2016 via RCA Records. “Ouroboros” was produced by Ray and Jim James of My Morning Jacket. The album was written by LaMontagne and features his first single, “Hey, No Pressure”. ‘Ouroboros’ is an album musically unlike any I have recorded previously. It did not make itself known to me in sections, sessions, or moments carved out of the clutter of everyday life. It presented itself as the simple question: ‘Will you follow me?’...The album is merely an attempt to recreate, from memory, the landscapes, the colors, the sights and sounds that were experienced.” – Ray LaMontagne stated about his new album in a postcard he sent to a small group of fans.

DONOVAN WOODS – HARD...

Donovan Woods’ work is guided by a mantra that only sounds simple: Good songs win. Woods was raised in the small city of Sarnia, Ontario, to the sounds of country music, with a healthy dose of folk and pop, a combination that instilled in him a strong belief in the power of a good melody, the importance of everyday language and the potential of a carefully-crafted song. While amassing a catalogue of rousing and acclaimed music of his own, he has worked with some of the top songwriters in North America to craft cuts for performers ranging from Tim McGraw and Alan Doyle to Billy Currington. Woods’ fourth studio album, Hard Settle, Ain’t Troubled, follows his JUNO Award-nominated Don’t Get Too Grand, and sees the songwriter in top form.
