RONNIE DUNN – RONNIE...

  From the iconic voice that has helped define the soundtrack of country music for the last two decades, superstar Ronnie Dunn is poised to continue the legacy with the release of his self-titled solo debut album, coming June 7. This 12-track collection, Ronnie Dunn, captures the multi-award-winning singer/songwriter’s most complete musical vision, produced solely by Dunn, with nine songs that he wrote or co-wrote. It’s the album he’s always wanted to make and Ronnie Dunn delivers in a big way, from the stirring poignancy of the smash first single, “Bleed Red,” to the all-too-real everyman’s portrait of “Cost of Livin’,” and the devastating, heart-on-the-line balladry of the Dunn-penned “Last Love I’m Tryin’.” “Bleed Red,” is the first hit from the new album, and is currently Top 5 on both the Canadian country airplay charts and the CMT Chevy Cross Canada Countdown.

ARIEL PINK’S HAUNTED...

Six months in the making, Before Today was recorded in part in Encino at the House of Blues (once Tito Jackson's home studio) with Sunny Levine (Quincy Jones' grandson) and Rik Pekkonen (Bill Withers, Seals & Crofts, Bread) as well as at the band's home studios. The result is a beguiling mix of glam rock, West Coast funk and Merseybeat harmonies with a high-production sheen; a contrast to the corroded bedroom recordings that have fomented a fervent cult following over the past decade.
