Runaway June Open A New Chapter With ‘backstory’ (out August 20th)

Award-nominated country music trio Runaway June will release their bright, rootsy new EP, backstory, on Friday, August 20th — the same weekend they join Luke Bryan on his Proud To Be Right Here Tour. Drenched in intoxicating vocals, seamlessly rich harmonies and fervent western bluegrass, the new project focuses on heartbreak, break-ups and moving on. But they aren’t all smooth, cool ballads, the trio delivers on the high-energy, heart-pounding, folksy tracks that secured them as a Billboard “Chartbreaker” and the coveted honour of being named a “New Face” at the 2020 Country Radio Seminar. The rock-n-roll western sound of Runaway June’s girl-power song catalogue brilliantly dazzles in the [...]

CHRISTONE ‘KINGFISH’ INGRAM “662”

A soli ventidue anni Christone Ingram è la nuova ‘blues sensation’ della sua generazione, celebrato da critica, pubblico e colleghi come uno dei migliori ‘manici’ in circolazione e dotato di notevole lucidità compositiva, oltre alla capacità di condensare un suono carico, potente e al tempo stesso variegato. Il suo debutto pubblicato nel 2019 ha fatto sobbalzare molti dalle loro sedie mostrando tutta la bravura del musicista di Clarksdale, Mississippi, dando l’esatta misura del potenziale contenuto nella proposta del giovanissimo blues man. A poco più di due anni dal quel disco ecco la più nitida delle conferme per ‘Kingfish’ [...]

DANA SIPOS “The Astral Plane”

Dana Sipos è una cantante ed autrice molto personale, con una voce che rimanda subito alle tonalità di una Natalie Merchant. L’artista canadese di Victoria nel British Columbia con questo suo disco intitolato “The Astral Plane” fissa le coordinate di un suono difficilmente etichettabile che parte  dal folk ma che lo infarcisce di inflessioni psichedeliche, pop e talvolta new age (per usare un termine ormai desueto). Le tematiche riflettono le considerazioni riguardanti il mondo che viviamo, con le sue emergenze, le crisi e le ripercussioni di tutto ciò sulle nostre vite, con inevitabili tocchi autobiografici e personali che [...]

DAVID CROSBY “For Free”

Prosegue con intatta ispirazione il percorso musicale ed umano di David Crosby, sorprendentemente fruttuoso sia a livello qualitativo sia per la regolarità che caratterizza questa fase artistica del musicista californiano. Da anni ormai Croz ci consegna dischi intensi che seguono un filo rosso elegante, profondo e appassionato, contraddistinto da una stupefacente freschezza vocale per l’ormai ottantenne protagonista di stagioni spesso complicate dal punto di vista fisico. “For Free” prende inevitabilmente spunto dall’omonimo gioiello di Joni Mitchell che Crosby ha sempre amato profondamente e inciso anche nella reunion dei membri originali dei Byrds nei primi anni settanta. Qui la [...]

Scotty McCreery Announces Fifth Studio Album ‘Same Truck’ (Out Sept 17th) Following Fan Demand

Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery will release his highly anticipated fifth studio album, Same Truck, on September 17th 2021. Originally, the album was going to be announced in August, but after intense fan demand following last Friday’s release of 'Why You Gotta Be Like That' caused pre-sale information to leak at several key retailers, McCreery and his label both decided to announce the album early as a thank you to his fans for fervently supporting his music through the years. “It’s gratifying to learn that my fans are so excited about my upcoming new album that they sought out pre-order information [...]

CASSADEE POPE RELEASES FIREY MUSIC VIDEO FOR LATEST SINGLE “SAY IT FIRST”

Cassadee Pope has just released the new music video for her latest single, "Say It First", from her upcoming ninth album, THRIVE. The video, directed and edited by Ed Pryor, is a colourful depiction of the inner storm that matches the song's angst along with the vulnerability of its lyrics. “Working with Ed Pryor again was such a treat," says Pope. "We both knew we wanted this video to include weather elements and fast flashes to coincide with the inner turmoil the song talks about. I wanted to wear a beautiful dress to further illustrate the fact that vulnerability is strength.” [...]

Jason Aldean Duets With Carrie Underwood On New Single “If I Didn’t Love You” – Available Now

After earning his 25th career #1 chart-topper last week on US country radio, multi-Platinum entertainer Jason Aldean shares the lead single from his forthcoming 10th studio album, a heart-pounding duet with seven-time Grammy award winner Carrie Underwood, "If I Didn't Love You.” The pair trade vocals for the fiery new track available now at Country radio and all digital retailers “We were pretty close to finishing up this album, but this song came in and we knew we had to record it,” Aldean said. “I went ahead and put my vocals down while we asked Carrie in the meantime. Luckily she loved the [...]

TED RUSSELL KAMP “Solitaire”

Prosegue inarrestabile, guidata da un’ispirazione sorprendente per qualità e quantità, la carriera solista di Ted Russell Kamp che da bassista ‘per conto terzi’ nelle bands di Shooter Jennings, Tanya Tucker e Jessi Colter per fare qualche nome si è ormai affermato come eccellente polistrumentista, autore talentuoso e bravo cantante. A non molta distanza dal precedente ed apprezzato “Down In The Den”, Ted Russell Kamp torna con ulteriori quattordici canzoni per oltre cinquanta minuti di gustosa country music che talvolta si intreccia con blues e soul dando vita ad una proposta di assoluto valore, con il tipico rilassato umore [...]
