Description:

GRAMMY-Award winning Zac Brown Band will release ‘WELCOME HOME,’ the band’s new album and their first release on Southern Ground / Elektra Records. Produced by GRAMMY-Award winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and In The Arena Productions, and recorded at Southern Ground Nashville studio, ‘WELCOME HOME’ is what the band calls not only a return to their roots, but also a return to ‘The Foundation,’ the band’s debut album that is now 5X platinum.
The theme of reflection is echoed throughout the 10-track album. Songs range from the first single, “My Old Man,” which paints a poignant picture of the ever-changing relationship between fathers and sons to “Two Places at One Time,” about juggling the conflict between life on the road and the comforts of home, and “Roots,” which honors the band’s journey from their humble beginnings. In addition, thebandcontinues their tradition of recording a cover song they all admire, this time with John Prine’s “All The Best.” “This is the most personal album we’ve ever done and we’re very proud of it,” said Brown. “Welcome Home.”

Description:

Critically acclaimed songwriter John Moreland will release his fourth solo album Big Bad Luv on May 5 via 4AD. Big Bad Luv marks a change in Moreland’s sound and outlook on life. With lyrics that are as intense and unfiltered as on his earlier work, Moreland delves into finding peace within. He also branches out sonically on the new album, which is injected with a heavier dose of rock ‘n’ roll. Big Bad Luv was recorded at Fellowship Fall Sound in Little Rock, AR, produced by Moreland and mixed by Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Tom Waits, Sheryl Crow). The brutal honesty of John Moreland’s singing and songwriting has touched listeners across the country. He silences rooms from dive bars to more recently the historic Ryman Auditorium stage. The simple and eloquent way that he’s able to speak about life rings as true as ever. “John Moreland has a beautifully abraded voice, full of potholesand gravel…” – The New York Times “Moreland sings heartwrenching lyrics in an earthy voice that sounds worn in beyond his 29 years.” – Wall Street Journal

Description:

Chris Stapleton’s highly anticipated new album, From A Room: Volume 1, will be released May 5 on Mercury Records Nashville. The highly anticipated full-length record is the first new music from Stapleton since 2015’s breakthrough double Platinum solo debut Traveller and will be followed by From A Room: Volume 2 coming later this year.

The album takes its name from Nashville s historic RCA Studio A, where it was recorded during the winter of 2016-17. Once again produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, Volume 1 features eight original songs as well as a rendition of “Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning,” written by Gary P. Nunn and Donna Sioux Farar and made famous by Willie Nelson.

Other highlights include “Second One To Know”, which Stapleton recently premiered at the 52nd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards as well as the album’s first single, Either Way.

In addition to Stapleton on vocals and guitar and Cobb on acoustic guitar, the album features Morgane Stapleton on harmony vocals as well as longtime band-members J.T. Cure on bass and Derek Mixon on drums and musicians Mickey Raphael on harmonica, Robby Turner pedal steel and Mike Webb on keys.

The May 5 release of Volume 1 comes exactly two years to the day since the release of Traveller. Released to immediate widespread critical acclaim, the album had one of the best-selling first weeks by a debut country artist in 2015. Following a historic turn on the 49th Annual CMA Awards where Stapleton became the first artist to win Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year at the same awards Traveller became the first album to re-enter the Billboard 200 all-genre album chart at No. 1, where it stayed for two straight weeks. The critically acclaimed album went on to win multiple Grammy and ACM Awards and was the #1 selling Country album of 2016 and the fourth-highest selling album of 2016 across all genres.

Additionally, in the past two years, Stapleton has performed on multiple national TV shows including Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and was profiled on CBS News Sunday Morning.

Stapleton is currently in the midst of an extensive U.S. tour. Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show will span throughout 2017 and includes stops at L.A. s The Forum, Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre and New York’s Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater and will feature Brothers Osborne, Lucie Silvas, Anderson East, Brent Cobb, Margo Price and Marty Stuart as special guests.

Of a recent performance, the Seattle Times declares, “…Stapleton dazzled the sold-out crowd with a barrage of songs that defy easy categorization while receiving the kind of deafening cheers reserved for superstars.”

Description:

Collaborations between two independently successful artists can be tricky to nail, often times sounding more like friends playing on each others’ songs rather than a true melding of ideas. With Rogue + Jaye, a duo featuring Rogue Wave’s Zach Rogue and singer-songwriter Courtney Jaye, that’s not the case, though. The pair recently announced their debut album, titled Pent Up, and today have shared that the record is set to be released May 5. In addition to Rogue and Jaye, the album features additional instrumentation from drummer Michael Libramento along with Floating Action guitarist Seth Kauffman and Band of Horses bassist Bill Reynolds, and was recorded at Reynolds’ Nashville studio with engineer Logan Matheny.

After coming together during a songwriting session years ago, the two finally released the first song from their collaboration last December via Rolling Stone Country, the subdued “Forces of Decay,” and now coupled with their album release date announcement, they’ve released another new track, “Little Relief.”

At its heart, “Little Relief” is an Americana song, bordering on country, but, when you add in the punched-up production and shimmering guitars that come courtesy of Matheny and Kauffman, respectively, it becomes bigger and more undefinable, and all the better for it. The musical ambiguity provides something akin to nostalgia, though you can’t quite point to what it is you’re nostalgic for, and the voices of Jaye and Rogue become the song’s centerpiece more than anything else. The two singers feel like equal players, which likely has something to do with the fact that the song doesn’t really sound like either of the artists’ own projects, but something wholly new. Of the chemistry between the two, Rogue states, “We have this thing, and I don’t really know why, it’s just a comfort level. We have this easy spirit with each other where I like hearing her sing, and I feel very comfortable proposing ideas.”
