The Felice Brothers – Aerosol Ball (2016)

felice

“The Felice Brothers return with nine songs in their unique blend of folk, country, rock and soul. Uncut magazine has described the band as, “just glorious”. Life in the Dark was recorded in the garage on a farm in upstate New York, with no distractions and no outside influences.
So, it’s not surprising the band produced the album themselves. Highlights include, “Aerosol Ball,” and “Plunder.” The Felice Brothers will be playing select shows and festivals throughout the spring and summer, with a US Tour scheduled for the fall and UK/EU dates in the winter.” Source

Jerry Jeff Walker – Song For The Life (2016)

“The Last Waltz was a momentous, one-time collaboration, but that event eventually led to Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble recording sessions — and both helped inspire The Next Waltz, a new web series and multiplatform music delivery concept created by renowned Austin singer-songwriter and producer Bruce Robison. Featuring top country talents telling their stories and recording new musical chapters with handpicked session players, The Next Waltz references a beloved moment in musical history while presenting a forward-thinking vision of audience engagement.” Next Waltz Channel

Sarah Shook & the Disarmers – Dwight Yoakam

“Sometimes it takes a bad seed to make good country music. That’s just the way it is. Just how bad Sarah Shook is probably depends on your perspective, but she was born into a good Christian home and raised in a wholesome manner that taught her to do everything in virtually the exact opposite way she eventually did it. Home schooled and only exposed to worship music at an early age, Sarah rebelled when she got the chance and her first band was named “Sarah Shook & The Devil.” Sorry mom and dad, but there was something inside Sarah that had to come out, and though this isn’t devil music by any stretch, it’s certainly not scriptures.”savingcountrymusic.com

“T. HARDY MORRIS
Hardy & The Hardknocks: Drownin On A Mountaintop
Album Notes By Patterson Hood, April 2015

“Love is a language with no subtitles”

Like ideas, the best songs are the simple ones. And like most simple ideas, they’re usually far more complex upon further examination than they seem at first.

So many young songwriters start off looking for the most complex way possible to examine a simple truth. Perhaps to seem smarter, or more “mature”. The better songwriters learn – hopefully before too much embarrassment – that the complex thought simply put is the key to a great song. Distilling that subtle truth down to its very essence and expressing it in a way that cuts through the bullshit and takes the listener by the heart into the depths of the intended emotion.” http://t.hardymorris.com/
