BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN –...

Chapter and Verse, the audio companion to Bruce Springsteen’s extraordinary forthcoming autobiography, will be released September 23, 2016 via Columbia Records. The career-spanning compilation will be released four days before Simon & Schuster publishes ‘Born to Run’. Springsteen selected the songs on Chapter and Verse to reflect the themes and sections of ‘Born to Run.’ The compilation begins with two tracks from The Castiles, featuring a teenaged Springsteen on guitar and vocals, and ends with the title track from 2012’s Wrecking Ball. The collected songs trace Springsteen’s musical history from its earliest days, telling a story that parallels the one in the book.

JOHN SCOFIELD – COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN

JOHN SCOFIELD – COUNTRY...

Like jazz, blues and country music also surmounted America's frontiers and gave themselves to the world. John Scofield, who was honoured last year with the GRAMMY© for Best Jazz Album (Past Present, already on impulse!), has never made a secret of his country and folk roots. They naturally lead to George Jones, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard and Hank Williams, to whom the guitarist pays homage with his new album Country for Old Men. Country for Old Men features the fantastic Steve Swallow, Larry Goldings and Bill Stewart and has been recorded at the Carriage House in Stamford with engineer Jay Newland and A&R man Brian Bacchus.

JOE BONAMASSA – LIVE AT...

On September 23, GRAMMY‐nominated blues‐rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa will deliver Live at the Greek Theatre, a 21‐track 2‐CD, 2‐DVD and Blu‐ray tribute to three of the greatest bluesmen to ever live – Albert King, B.B. King, and Freddie King. Billed as “The Three Kings” tour – a 14‐date US amphitheater tour last summer culminating at the famed Los Angeles venue – Bonamassa celebrates the music of this trio of blues icons with over two hours of some the greatest blues songs ever written. The release will include a collector’s edition booklet and bonus features containing behind the scenes footage and more. Playing on a warm summer night to a near sold‐out crowd, Bonamassa’s handpicked setlist of songs was called “spectacular” by Premier Guitar; Los Angeles Times said the show “had swing and polish” and “Bonamassa evoked the signature licks of all three icons while managing to put his own stamp on things.” Songs ranged from blues standards to ...

AIRBOURNE – BREAKIN&...

Driven by a formidable work‐hard/play‐hard ethic, and keen to entertain on the grandest of scales, this award‐winning quartet (formed in regional Australia in 2003) have been proudly walking the rock ‘n’ roll path since their early teenage years, inspired by the music’s great and glorious past, yet determined to move things forward on a wave of blurred limbs & boundless energy. Led into action by brothers Joel & Ryan O’Keeffe (vocalist / lead guitarist & drummer, respectively; the line‐up is completed by David Roads on guitar and Justin Street on bass), the four have spent the past 10 years establishing themselves as a true force of nature – living on the road, selling out major venues, charting albums and appearing on bills with some of rock’s most legendary names, from Iron Maiden to the Rolling Stones. SINCE the release of ‘Runnin’ Wild’ (a silver record in the UK), Airbourne have notched up an impressive array of ...

MADELEINE PEYROUX – SECULAR HYMNS

MADELEINE PEYROUX –...

Twenty years after her recording debut, Dreamland, Madeleine Peyroux continues her musical journey of exploration beyond the ordinary with Secular Hymns, a spirited and soulful masterwork to be released September 16 on Impulse!/Verve Label Group. Recorded with her touring band-mates of the last two years —electric guitarist Jon Herington and upright bassist Barak Mori— the trio crafted the album in a live setting in a small church in the Oxfordshire countryside of England. The result is a stirring collection of songs that have their own hymnlike stories of self-awareness. With her seductively expressive voice, Secular Hymns sees Peyroux interpreting tunes by seminal blues artists Willie Dixon and Lil Green, classic gospel singer Sister Rosetta Tharpe, dub reggae innovator Linton Kwesi Johnson, contemporary craftsmen Tom Waits, Townes Van Zandt, Allen Toussaint, 19th century American giant Stephen Foster, and an early African-American spiritual. The evolution of Secular Hymns is as organic as the recording itself. The story starts with a ...

AARON LEWIS – SINNER

AARON LEWIS – SINNER

Known for genuinely gritty lyrics and hard rock anthems, Aaron Lewis (founding member and lead singer of Staind) is getting back to his Country roots September 16 with his first album on Dot Records entitled SINNER. Lewis comes out of the gate “with both fists flying” on the lead single “That Ain’t Country,” where he laments the current state of “Country, if you call it that,” and pines for the sound of his honky-tonk heroes. The Bocephus-styled musicality and Lewis’ accessible vocals showcase the “pain, heartache and desperation,” a bedrock of traditional Country that is often missing from the airwaves today. Produced by Country legend Buddy Cannon (George Strait, Merle Haggard, George Jones), and recorded over 16 intense hours at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios, SINNER captures Lewis’ mindset, a laid back soundtrack that is reminiscent of the genre’s most honest and musically adventurous artists. “I’d like to think that SINNER is a newer take on classic, traditional Outlaw ...
