First Single-  Dirt Gets Dirty mp3
"Ariana's soulful talent has taken up elite residency in what constitutes the very best that songwriting has to offer. On the cusp of 20 years old, she was composing material that was outrageously original, melodic and passionate. Now under the wing of multi-talented Americana everyman Buddy Miller the stars are aligned and Ariana Gillis will prove through these recordings that she is no flash in the pan flavor of the month but a force to be reckoned with now and for a very long time." -Bernie Taupin (Lyricist of Elton John)
Hailing from just outside Toronto, Ariana Gillis began taking singing lessons at the age of six, but she was hardly thrilled. So, her father encouraged her to write her own material and learn to play the guitar. An award-winning songwriter himself, he gave her invaluable insight into the process. READ MORE
“I have been a fan of Ariana Gillis since discovering her music on satellite radio…something rare and unseen – genuine, un-calculated, un-co-opted, art from a soulful gem.” 
– Grammy Award-winner, Buddy Miller

First Single Moonshine & Sweet Tea mp3

Boston Roots and Cowboy Boots. All the way from Nashville to Memphis, and beyond, Dream Girl is the evolution of Juliet Simmons Dinallo’s singing, songwriting, and the journey that began with 2013’s No Regrets album on Tree-O-Records. 

Dream Girl, produced by Michael Dinallo and Ducky Carlisle, The Tremolo Twins, is an amalgam of Nashville and Memphis. Dusty in Memphis, I Am Shelby Lynn, Stax/Volt, classic Nashville sides, From Elvis in Memphis along with soulful group singing. Juliet enlisted two other tremendous vocalists from Boston, Amber Casares, and Anita Suhanin, to sing with her. The blend is reminiscent of the Staple Singers at times ("Until I Go") or the Trio album ("Moonshine and Sweet Tea") with Dolly, Emmylou, and Linda. Tim Carter (who is a direct link to The Carter Family) recorded the mandolin, fiddle, and banjo at his studio in Goodlettsville TN. The majority of the songs were solely by Juliet a few exceptions.  Read More
Full CD with featured Rhonda Vincent Track
Caleb Daugherty was born in 1992 in Connersville Indiana. Raised in a musical family, Caleb began singing and playing the guitar at 7 years old.
While there have been many highlights in his musical career, the most memorable to date would be June 2016, when he was asked by Rhonda Vincent, Queen of Bluegrass, to join her and her band on stage at the Grand Ole Opry, on guitar and vocals.
As if that wasn't enough of an honor, he was also invited to perform at the 1st Annual "Keith Whitley Tribute Show" at the Nashville Palace, to honor one of his musical heroes, alongside the likes of Lorrie Morgan, Darryl Worley, Ken Mellons, Kevin Denney, and several other great artists.
On May 9th 2019 Caleb will be honoring the late Keith Whitley once again, alongside the likes of Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Mark Wills, Darryl Worley, Mark Chesnutt, Tracy Lawrence, Joe Diffie and many others at The Country Music Hall of Fame for the Keith Whitley 30th Anniversary Memorial Concert, on the Anniversary of Keiths untimely passing.
With Caleb's positive attitude and great work ethic, his future is sure to be bright!

James Dean & The Black Dogs  -  Truth by Jim Hynes
23 February 2019  
Dean James is a UK musician that has been playing for 15 years as a solo artist or fronting his own...
Sometimes it seems that people who've been through the toughest times are the ones who are the most appreciative of life. Rather than dwelling in bitterness, regret or sorrow, they're alive to the moment and determined to live it to its fullest potential. 
Sam is one of those people. He's also one of the people who've served our country and helped keep it safe so we can all live all our moments to their fullest. Look around you. We're sure you know a Sam... or maybe a Samantha. 
Play "Out if Gas" for them and tell them "Keep dancing till there are no more songs to play!"   And don't forget to tell them, "Thanks for your service!"

White Owl Red's third studio album

Existential Frontiers is the third studio album by White Owl Red, a San Francisco-based alt-country band fronted by singer/songwriter J. Josef McManus. His debut record, 2014’s American Ash landed on the Americana Music Association Charts (AMA) and held a spot there for fourteen weeks. His second album, 2017’s Naked and Falling Naked and Falling Charted on the AMA top 100, FAR Chart top 10 and ranked in the top 100 albums of 2017 by Alternate Root.  This is clearly a band on the rise and Existential Frontiers will likely raise their trajectory.

Joining McManus are drummer Kyle Caprista (Chuck Prophet, Megan Slankard) and guitarist Gawain Mathews (Mickey Hart, Ben Lee). McManus has one of those classic twang voices with long drawn out words like Hayes Carll or Ray Wylie Hubbard. At times you’d swear he was from Texas, not San Francisco. Yet, there’s a West Coast feel to the music too, hearkening back at times to classic country rock sounds of the Byrds and Burritos. Some hear elements of the Dead but perhaps the best comparison is the San Francisco band from the ‘90s, American Music Club.  Like that band, White Owl Red uses small dashes of psychedelia, as if to remind us that they are inherently San Francisco at heart.

The opening title track, already released as a single and YouTube video, is a swinging country rocker. It’s an arousing beginning that quickly yields to the mid-tempo, brooding “Breaking Away.” McManus displays his true gift for melody in “Everything But Crying” and the lilting “Good Morning Moonshine.” The tongue-in-cheek “I’m a Saint” reveals a punk country style that segues to the acoustic folk-like “Love Her Still.” 

“More, More, More” is a haunting up-tempo tune, propelled by McManus’s drawn-out phrasing and polyrhythms from Caprista. Again, in keeping with the pattern, the tempo slows for the languorous, spacey “See Through Me” and picks up only slightly for the folk-like “Set Me Free” that has a nice dobro break from Mathews. This sets us up for perhaps the strongest track, the churning rock anthem “Union Fight Song.” McManus speaks for the government workers summoning Joe Hill and John Henry as he sings “We’re gonna show you with a red, white and blue union can do.”

Piano chords introduce the brooding “Hand-Me-Down Girl” that leads into the bouncy, singalong “Star-crossed Lover.” “Take a Good Look” is another rapid tempo twangy tune bordering on punk country before closing with the harmonica-infused Dylanesque “Wishing You Well.”

Despite the modest success of their first two albums, White Owl Red remains lightly under the radar. McManus and his band are as good as any on today’s Americana scene. There are several tunes that are ideal for airplay here so perhaps this will rightly elevate their status. McManus is a better songwriter than most.  With the talents of his bandmates, they deliver a nice mix of tunes shifting between alt-country to folk to some terrific rocking moments.

way!” ~D.B.      Full CD 320k mp3 Zip
It takes a confident and gritty artist to tackle a song in front of a crowd, never mind on a recorded work, that has so much notoriety from the original artist.
Andrew Hendryx first came across my eardrums around a decade ago through his work with the Brooklyn based band Yarn. His mandolin playing, particularly on the electric, was one of the most exciting sounds I had heard in a long while. It was innovative, he is a true visionary for the instrument in ways I had not seen before and he returns with a solo effort (with help from some pretty heavy hitting friends) on this first single from his forthcoming “Deep River”.
The remnants of jamminess coat the edges of the tune, but it’s a strong vocal and his wonderful mandolin arrangement that is the anchor to the track at large. Those vocals are provided courtesy of Dan Lotti of Dangermuffin, who Hendryx is currently on tour with. And amidst the din of such a heavily instrumented track it can be hard to stand out, but Andrew’s mandolin playing, distinct and powerful in its nature, rises and sits above the moving current of the rest of the band.
The rest of the record that this first release comes from is anticipated sometime this month to be determined, but keep a keen ear and eye out for when it drops. The record features a smorgasbord of other jam infused, traditionally influenced where the band indeed shines, but more so bolsters up Hendryx’s playing and allows the artist to free himself in a way where he shines. There is an undeniable vibe and ebb and flow to the tunes…a collection you will revisit again and again.
