JOHANNA SILLANPAA – FROM...

It’s smart, it’s soulful, it’s jazz. For every style of music that Johanna Sillanpaa explores, there’s a vibrant color in her voice to match. Sillanpaa’s vocals are expertly clear, gently raw, and yet intensely bold. She performs thoughtful jazz you can dig your heels into. She and her ensemble have played everywhere from intimate jazz joints across North America and Europe all the way to performing in front of the 60,000-plus crowds of the Montreal Jazz Festival. Beyond filling venues in Canada and abroad, Sillanpaa’s previous solo albums have also drawn their fair share of accolades and award nominations.

JUDAH AND THE LION –...

YEARS BEFORE FORMING ONE OF NASHVILLE'S MOST GENRE-BENDING BANDS, THE MEMBERS OF JUDAH & THE LION GREW UP IN SEPARATE CORNERS OF THE U.S., LISTENING TO EVERY TYPE OF MUSIC THAT CAME THEIR WAY.

THE SHINS – HEARTWORMS

The Shins are pleased to announce the release of their fifth studio album, Heartworms. The album will be released on March 10, 2017 via Aural Apothecary/Columbia Records. Heartworms features Mercer’s most diverse lyrical palette to date: from fictional character sketches (“Fantasy Island,” “Rubber Ballz”), autobiographical accounts (“Mildenhall”), to the first single “Name For You,” a resounding call for female empowerment inspired by Mercer’s three daughters. The result is a cohesive, genre defying album marked by Mercer’s distinct voice and melodic composition. Unified by his singular vision, Mercer creates a sound that is both familiar – a nostalgic nod to the album’s predecessors - and distinctly new.

THE ORCHARD – THE GREAT UNKNOWN

THE ORCHARD – THE GREAT...

Kasha Anne and Mitch Smith, the singer/songwriter duo better known as The Orchard, couldn’t have picked a better title for their latest album than The Great Unknown. After making an indelible impression on Canada’s country music scene with their first two records, the Alberta natives instinctively knew heading into their third release that change was imminent. But what would that change entail? New sounds? A new producer? A new approach to writing and recording? All of the above, as it turns out. Led by the anthemic first single “Sometimes I Wonder,” The Great Unknown is a cosmic blend of rock, country and pop. It’s a vision the pair had from the beginning of completely ignoring genre definitions and just doing what came naturally. Still, they needed a trusted hand to guide them in the studio, and there was no one better to ask than producer Jim Scott (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Marcus King Band). The results reveal The Orchard’s true ...
