G-Eazy

Website | Facebook | Video

Arriving on-stage with a pompadour and a leather jacket, G-Eazy became known as "the James Dean of rap", but his music is much less troubled than that name might imply, having crossed over to the mainstream with his re-interpolation of the rock & roll classic "Runaround Sue." Born Gerald Earl Gillum in Oakland, California, G-Eazy launched his career while still in college, heading up a hip-hop crew named the Bay Boyz while dropping his solo debut, The Epidemic LP, in 2009. Two years later, his mixtape The Endless Summer landed with his hit redo of Dion's "Runaround Sue" included, while 2012 saw him hit the road with Hoodie Allen and also join the Van's Warped Tour. In 2014 he returned with the album These Things Happen.

Particle

Website | Facebook | Video

Particle began its journey in Los Angeles in 2000 as one of the key pioneers of the emerging ‘livetronica’ music scene. The band created a signature sound that combined elements of Electronica, Funk and Rock with a heavy emphasis on improvisation and sonic exploration, and their influence can still be felt and heard in many of today’s top touring Jam and EDM/Funk bands.

Always striving to think outside the box and create unique concert experiences, Particle paired their high-energy dance music with cutting-edge multimedia production, thematic special events, and epic marathon sets that quickly developed a loyal fan base of Particle People spanning genre lines from jam to EDM.

Particle went on to perform in eight different countries and headline venues coast-to-coast, from the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles to Irving Plaza in New York City. The band has also been a staple at major U.S. festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella, ACL Festival and Lollapalooza.

Particle is led by keyboardist/songwriter, Steve Molitz, whose innovative approach to keyboards and improvisational music has made him a mainstay on the national music scene since he first founded the band fourteen years ago. Well-known for programming and playing vintage keyboards and analog synthesizers, Molitz appeared at the inaugural Moogfest (A Tribute to Bob Moog), and was later tapped to help design Moog’s Little Phatty synthesizer. Molitz has also toured, recorded and performed with a wide range of artists, including: Phil Lesh (Grateful Dead), Robby Krieger (The Doors), Rich Robinson (The Black Crowes), G Love and Special Sauce, Tricky, Eve, The Allman Brothers Band, and many more.

Particle's first studio album, Launchpad (2004), was produced by Tom Rothrock (Beck, Moby, Foo Fighters) and received critical praise and exclusive coverage from mainstream news outlets, including Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and CNN. The band's double-live CD and DVD Transformations: Live (2006) was produced by Shout Factory and featured guest performances by Joe Satriani, Robby Krieger, Blackalicious, and DJ Logic.

In late 2006, Particle went on a semi-hiatus, as they cut down to less than 20 shows per year to accommodate the band’s changing family and work situations. During this time, Molitz began a long run of touring and recording with other high-profile artists, and composing music for video games and film. The band’s semi-hiatus lasted until 2014, when Molitz felt the overwhelming desire to relaunch Particle as a full-time band. For years he’d been listening to fans remind him of classic performances (“I was there!”) and ask when the band would finally return to the road again. So along with guitarist Ben Combe, bassist Clay Parnell, and drummer Brandon Draper, Molitz has officially returned to touring full-time with Particle, and to continuing the band’s ever-evolving journey…

Particle is currently hard at work finishing enough studio tracks to populate up to two new full-length albums, both of which will be released in 2015. In the meantime, the band plans to premiere select studio singles and to make their new music as accessible as possible for old and new fans alike. As Molitz said in a recent interview, “Particle has always been fueled by the energy of our fans, and we’re so excited to get back out on the road full-time, and to share all of this new music with the Particle People...”

Like A Storm

Website | Facebook | Youtube

With their record-breaking new single, "Love the Way You Hate Me", smashing its way onto American airwaves, Kiwi hard rock act Like A Storm have now achieved more successful US Hard Rock singles than any other New Zealand band in history. Hard rock anthem "Love the Way You Hate Me", which features singer Chris Brooks playing the didgeridoo, has made an impact with rock fans all over North America - hitting #1 on satellite giant SiriusXM Octane.

Since their debut album, "The End of the Beginning", in 2009, Like A Storm have created a compelling musical catalogue and earned the reputation as one of rock's hardest working bands. Five years of relentless touring has seen them share American stages with rock giants Creed, Korn, Alter Bridge, Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown and many others. As a result, the band of Kiwi brothers has developed one of the most loyal fan bases in the country, and are now a headline act in their own right. Like A Storm's diehard fans - many of whom are inked in the band's artwork and lyrics - are widely known to travel huge distances, and show up hours early, to see the band play at some of the most iconic rock venues in the US.

Originally formed a world away in Auckland, New Zealand, Like A Storm was born when musician brothers Chris, Kent and Matt Brooks first jammed together. Growing up playing in separate bands, the combined chemistry was apparent in an instant. "We just felt this amazing musical connection," remembers guitarist Matt Brooks, "We knew that we had to start a band together."

Leaving New Zealand with the dream to play their music on the world stage, Like A Storm's American career was kickstarted in 2009 in a Los Angeles recording studio. Producer and mentor Mike Plotnikoff, with whom the band lived while making their debut album, blasted the first single, "Chemical Infatuation", for Creed/Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti. As a result, Tremonti offered Like A Storm the opening slot on Creed's nationwide arena tour - an opportunity which won them thousands of fans all over the US, with their debut album, "The End of the Beginning", charging onto the Billboard charts from tour sales alone. Since that explosive entry, Like A Storm have established themselves as one of the most powerful new rock acts on the US tour circuit.

Combining crushing baritone guitar riffs, ambient textures, and their three vocal attack, Like A Storm's sound has been described as dark, yet uplifting. The band's hard-hitting rock anthems can be heard on the radio on both sides of the world - in the USA, Canada and on New Zealand's biggest rock station, The RockFM. The record-breaking new single, "Love the Way You Hate Me", showcases the band's massive musical growth on their recent sophomore effort, "Chaos Theory: Part 1".

"Chaos Theory: Part 1" was initially intended to be recorded in a typical US studio, but due to their insane touring schedule, the band decided to instead make the record while out on the road. As a result, Like A Storm's second album was recorded in backstage rooms and hotels all across the US. "Basically we didn't sleep for two months straight," laughs singer Chris Brooks, "After every show we would wheel two carts full of recording equipment into our hotel rooms… Asking the staff to put us as far away from the other guests as possible."

Whilst initially proving to be something of a logistical nightmare, recording an album while out on a nationwide US tour turned out to be hugely positive for the band. "It was actually a really awesome way to make a record," says Matt, "Walking offstage every night and going straight into making our new album really enabled us to capture all the energy of our live show." Recording outside of the constraints of the regular studio environment also gave Like A Storm the freedom to realize their ambitious vision - an album where hard rock contrasts haunting acoustics, and progressive metal collides with the primal tones of the didgeridoo - all while retaining the powerful, meaningful lyrics that the band are known for. "Chaos Theory: Part 1", produced by the multi-instrumentalist Brooks brothers, has been widely regarded as a huge step forward for the band. The record has already yielded two successful singles - "Never Surrender" (voted "Song of the Year" by Mid-Atlantic Rock Review), and their latest hard rock anthem "Love the Way You Hate Me".

Ironically, the chart-climbing "Love the Way You Hate Me" was never intended to be a single. Surprised by its recent success, Chris says, "We honestly never thought it would be on the radio. It was just this heavy song that we thought would be awesome to play live! We even put this long indulgent didgeridoo breakdown in it, which we thought would probably stop any station from ever playing it." he laughs. But after Michigan station 101.5FM The Banana unexpectedly spun the song one night on their "Cagematch" song competition, listeners responded overwhelmingly. "Love the Way You Hate Me" went on to win every night for over a month until it was retired from the competition - shattering the station's existing record. Radio stations all over North America started taking notice of the song - with its unique musical statement, "Love the Way You Hate Me" has grabbed the attention of rock fans all over North America.

Sam Hunt (SOLD OUT) http://bourbontheatre.com/2014/11/10/sam-hunt/ http://bourbontheatre.com/2014/11/10/sam-hunt/#comments Mon, 10 Nov 2014 16:22:25 +0000 aaron http://bourbontheatre.com/?p=10404 Friday, March 20th

Website | Facebook | Video

At first glance, Sam Hunt might seem like a fairly typical young country singer—he grew up in a small Southern town; spent his school days concentrating on sports, but feeling his attachment to music grow deeper and deeper; and came to Nashville with little idea of how the music business worked, but with big dreams.

But a closer look instantly reveals that there is nothing typical about the music that Hunt makes, nor about the way he has introduced his work to the world. In a short time and on his own terms, he has become one of Nashville’s most hotly anticipated new artists, and his debut album, Montevallo, delivers on the buzz and the promise—and then some.

The album follows Hunt’s recent four-song album preview, X2C, led by the Top Five, gold-selling track “Leave the Night On.” Of course, even though he was a recording rookie, Hunt was no stranger to the country music charts, having already written hits for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and Billy Currington.

Hunt grew up in rural Cedartown, Georgia. An athlete all his life, Hunt wound up playing football through college, ending his time there as starting quarterback at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Somewhere during his time at UAB, he picked up a guitar, and while learning the songs of such great singer-songwriters as Townes Van Zandt and John Prine, Hunt began putting rudimentary chords together and writing tunes of his own.

After college, the NFL had taken notice of his talents on the field and he was invited to training camp with the Kansas City Chiefs. “I knew this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I needed to find out if I could take it all the way,” he says. “But by then I knew that if football didn’t work out, I was going to Nashville.”

Arriving in Music City, USA without a real understanding of the different paths an aspiring musician might pursue, Hunt was able to play a few of his original songs around town and was soon offered a publishing deal, enabling him to write full-time. He fell in with the songwriting community and the conventional methods of collaborating, but he knew that he was developing a sound that was slightly out of sync with the standard Nashville formulas.

“I always loved country music—I used to take the car keys from my mom and sit in our driveway listening to the car radio,” he says. “But I was also hearing a lot of other music – hip-hop and R&B. In some ways, that really gospel-based Southern R&B might be my favorite of all.”

His songs started to experiment with ways to mix more modern beats and tones with the narrative and wordplay that define the best country music. Some of the other songwriters were skeptical, but when Kenny Chesney recorded “Come Over” (written by Hunt along with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, who remain his close associates) and it became a Number One hit, he sensed that he was on to something. When the even more sonically daring “Cop Car” became a hit for Keith Urban, Hunt was convinced that he had found an exciting new direction, and began to shift his focus from being a songwriter to stepping out front as a solo artist.

“I learned a lot from working with all those amazing other writers,” he says. “I learned so many of the rules and the structures that make great songs. But I also knew that there was a way to go beyond those rules and make something that would really be unique and honest to who I am.”

Along the way, Hunt met producer Zach Crowell, who made beats for the Antioch rap crew. They holed up together at Crowell’s home studio for long hours, matching tracks to lyric ideas and developing a new way to write country songs. Once they had a big enough body of work, they borrowed another idea from outside the country genre, and released a free mixtape of acoustic songs called Between The Pines in 2013. “In hip-hop, they do a great job of making the music accessible,” he says. “When somebody’s never heard you, just give them the music and let them decide for themselves if they like it or not.”

Soon, Hunt’s songs were averaging over 300,000 streams per day on Spotify, and he won the latest cycle of Spotify’s “Emerge” program for new artists (previous winners include such notables as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Bastille). After signing with Universal/MCA Nashville, he finished polishing some of the mixtape songs and fleshing out the remainder of debut album Montevallo.

The results are a bracing mix of sounds and styles, from the aggressive dance beats of the opening “Take Your Time” to the more melodic “Make You Miss Me.” On “Break Up in a Small Town,” Hunt talk-sings the verses, an accident he and Crowell stumbled on in the studio, before unleashing an explosive chorus. With “Raised On It,” he wanted to write about his small-town upbringing with images that expanded upon the now-predictable trucks and dirt roads of countless other country songs; the results are both more specific and more universal than the standard fare.

As for the album’s title, Montevallo is the name of a small Alabama town where Hunt often retreated these past few years, to visit friends and escape from the pressures of starting a new career in Nashville. He also points out, however, that the word means “mountains and valleys” in Spanish—which, he says, “feels about right, too.” Because as his remarkable set of songs demonstrates, for Sam Hunt, contradictions are meant to be embraced, rules are meant to be broken, and creativity knows no limits.

Wayland

Website | Facebook | Youtube

Wayland is a four-piece rock and roll band from Michigan who, thinking it was the right thing to do, pooled their money and made the leap to pack up the van and move to Los Angeles. While living in LA, the band was hammering away playing any gig they could book until they were introduced to Jude Cole who quickly identified that this is a band that belonged in the Midwest. Jude challenged them to get back to their roots in the heart of Middle America where people love their rock and roll.

After some convincing, the band agreed and picked up again and moved straight back to their namesake hometown, Wayland, Michigan where everything started falling into place. The band made fast friends with the nationally syndicated morning show Free Beer And Hot Wings by bringing them breakfast in exchange for airplay. One of the morning DJ’s found Wayland an easy target for reaching out in this way but after just one spin of “Welcome To My Head,” listeners fell in love with the song immediately and stood up for the guys. The Program Director at WGRD, JT, agreed that it was a hit and added it to the rotation. JT offers, “The talent this band possesses is unreal and they have the #1 most requested song on our airwaves and sold out shows all over Michigan to back it up!”

Enjoying giant local success, Wayland wasted no time in hitting the road in a donated RV from a local camper supply house and they haven’t looked back. After performing live on WJJO, WXRX, WBUZ, KQRC, and WFTK, the band has been added to the airwaves across the country and has been invited to participate in some of the most recognizable summer festivals in 2012.

Blackberry Smoke

Website | Facebook | Video

"I think that this record does a really good job of conveying what we do and what we're about," Blackberry Smoke singer-guitarist-songwriter Charlie Starr says of Holding All the Roses, the band's fourth studio album and its first Rounder release.

Indeed, Holding All the Roses compellingly captures the energy, attitude and honesty that have already helped to make Blackberry Smoke one of America's hottest live rock 'n' roll outfits, as well as a grass-roots phenomenon with a large and fiercely loyal fan base that reflects the band's tireless touring regimen and staunch blue-collar work ethic.

The 12-song set—produced by Brendan O'Brien, whose previous production clients have included AC/DC, Aerosmith, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young—showcases the Atlanta-based quintet's emotion-charged mix of bluesy rock, gospel soul, and country, with Starr's raspy twang matched by his and Paul Jackson's snarling guitars, Brandon Still's hauntingly expressive organ and piano, and the propulsive sibling rhythm section of Richard and Brit Turner. The songs' musical and emotional appeal is further elevated by the band's three-part vocal harmonies and expanded arrangements that make judicious use of fiddle and added percussion.

The five musicians' instinctive musical rapport manifests itself equally strongly on such surging rockers as "Let Me Help You (Find the Door)," "Living in the Song" and "Wish In One Hand," and on such intimate, introspective tunes as "Woman in the Moon," "Too High" and the stirring, acoustic-textured "No Way Back to Eden." The album's musical and emotional depth demonstrates how Blackberry Smoke continues to extend and expand the Southern rock tradition.

The musical maturity that's on display throughout Holding All the Roses underlines Blackberry Smoke's steady evolution from rough-edged club act to arena-ready rock 'n' roll juggernaut. Since its formation in 2000, the band has never shied away from hard work, playing more than 250 shows a year and building an ever-expanding audience on the strength of its live shows, and with a noticeable lack of mainstream hype.

"We've built our audience one fan at a time," states drummer Brit Turner. "Sometimes it feels like we know every one of them personally, and we're constantly amazed and moved by their loyalty and passion."

Along the way, Blackberry Smoke has found time to record a handful of independent releases, including the albums Bad Luck Ain't No Crime, Little Piece of Dixie, and The Whippoorwill (the latter on country megastar Zac Brown’s Southern Ground label), plus a pair of EPs, the concert DVD Live at the Georgia Theatre, and the live CD/DVD set Leave A Scar. Although those releases found favor with fans and were received warmly by critics, the band members feel that Holding All the Roses marks the first time that Blackberry Smoke has had the time and resources to make an album that properly captures their musical essence.

"In the past, we never really had the resources to make the kind of records we wanted to make," says Charlie, adding, "But this time around, everything lined up, and we were able to create an album that covers a lot of musical ground and works as a listening experience from beginning to end."

It certainly helped that the band found a kindred musical spirit in producer O'Brien, whose affinity for solid songcraft and knack for capturing transcendent moments of musical inspiration made him the ideal man to capture Blackberry Smoke's restless spirit in the studio.

"The whole experience was refreshing and spontaneous," Charlie says of the album's birth cycle. "We got it done pretty quickly, but it didn't feel like we were in a hurry. We chose the songs to represent the different things that we do, and we took the time to work out the running order and figure out how the album should flow. There are a bunch of three-minute songs on there, and a couple that are under three minutes, plus a couple that open up a little bit more and get a little bit jammy, and Brendan was very open about approaching each song to give it what it needed."

"It was a way more comfortable record to make than anything we'd done before," adds Brit. "We were excited to work with Brendan for so many reasons, one being that he gets us and we don't have to explain where we're coming from, which hasn't always been the case in the past. We were all on the same page about the music, so we could just get down to business."

Getting down to business is something that Blackberry Smoke has always been good at. In addition to winning fans and friends throughout the United States, they've toured Europe three times, had their songs featured in movie and video-game soundtracks, and performed for country legend George Jones (who guested on the band's second album) on his 80th birthday.

Jones isn't the only notable artist who's come out as a Blackberry Smoke fan. Dierks Bentley, Jamey Johnson, Grace Potter and the Zac Brown Band have all gone on record as admirers, while ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons admiringly advised, "The band is tight enough. Quit practicing!," and no less an authority than Gregg Allman stated "That band is gonna put Southern Rock back on the map."

The critics agree. The Washington Post proclaimed them “a band that can reclaim Southern Rock for the South,” and the Atlanta Journal Constitution declared, “The Atlanta quintet is the real deal.” Billboard praised their “epic-sounding ballads,” and The New Orleans Times-Picayune called them "an airtight band that is far smarter and more sophisticated than casual observers may realize... Blackberry Smoke's amalgamation of hearty Southern rock, alt-country and deep soul is equally suited for roadhouses or arenas."

The acclaim extends to the other side of the Atlantic. The London Times noted, "Unpretentious and as musically tight as you would expect a band who plays night after night would be, Blackberry Smoke brought a little bit of Georgia sunshine to a rainy night in London." The English hard-rock journal Kerrang! proclaimed, "Blackberry Smoke are now a Big Deal... They've achieved it simply because they're awesome."

Much of that awesomeness lies in the potent musical and personal rapport that's at the core of Blackberry Smoke's music. "It's evolved over the years, but that chemistry has been there from day one," says Charlie. "It's always been about the five of us listening to each other and creating something that belongs to all of us. When we started, we were young and impatient, playing everything too fast and with everything always turned up to 10. But eventually you calm down and settle into the music, and you learn to play with patience and soul."

"Everything with us has been a natural progression, but it's always felt like it's been about the five of us and about the chemistry," Brit asserts. "Me and my brother and Charlie had played together a lot in other bands, so that was a really strong foundation. And all five of us grew up loving songs that were really well-crafted, whether they were by the Beatles or the Stones or Aerosmith or Skynyrd. That's a big part of our common ground, and I think that we're always trying to come up with songs and records that are as good as the ones that we grew up with."

While the five bandmates are excited that their move to Rounder offers the potential of reaching new listeners, they're not planning on altering their approach for mass consumption.

"The plan for this record," Charlie says, "is to go out and play as much as we can, and just take it to the people. There's so much that's out of your hands when you release a record, but that's the part that we can control. That, and making an effort to make a better record every time."

"We've always been really hands-on and deeply involved, and that's not going to change," concludes Brit, who adds, "The thing is, we really do care about this stuff, and we don't have it in us to phone it in. We really care about what we do, and we care about every person who comes to see us play, even the jackass who's screaming for the song that we just played. So we're ready to pick up the ball and run with it."

Friday Maybe Saturday

Website | Facebook

Fayetteville’s own Friday Maybe Saturday — Chad Chamberlain, Charley Gilbow, Nate Garrett, Jedidiah Brandon — wrote a song called ‘Fuck’ Mountain so your band doesn’t have to. The band’s laid back approach to progressive metal is fun for a crowd, unless you are in a band and are left wondering how they can so effortlessly channel Fall of Troy and Mars Volta.

You also have to realize members of FMS are in the rough and tumble Auger, and formerly were in Queen Beast and several other bands you wish you were in.

Friday Maybe Saturday somehow skates the fine line between prog rock and metal, making catchy songs that are often heavy and anthemic. They have graduated from the Don Caballero school of song title, with Jumping Jesus on a Pogo Stick, and Unbuckle My Swash, to name a few.

I can’t recommend seeing FMS live enough.

--The Free Weekly (Roger Barret)

Raised just outside of Chicago, Aaron Holstein was exposed to early house, techno, electro, and hip-hop, becoming a crate-digger at a young age. Breaking was an obsession for the youngster, who came up on Sugar Hill Gang, Al-Naafish, and Art of Noise.

NATRON88 - Omaha, NE (http://www.householdname.co/natron88.html) FRIDAY

Natron is part of the group of DJs who helped shape the EDM scene in Omaha and there's a good reason why he is still around after over a decade behind the decks.

Getting his start back in 1996 with the help of Tony Markham, THC and JP Goode Beats, Natron starting playing house music. After months of practicing, studying and buying loads of records, he finally played his first party on Halloween and instantly become a crowd favorite.

After a year of sticking to his house roots and making mix tape after mix tape, Natron changed his style to Chicago Hard House (that good Underground Construction shit from 97-99) and started getting booked out of town with tag team partner Danny Franck (aka .com) doing four turntable sets in Kansas, Iowa, and Missouri. During this period of time, Natron came across ghetto house via the Underground Construction Ghetto Series and instantly fell in love with that south side Chicago sound and been rocking it since.

JONNY BEATZ - Omaha, NE (www.soundcloud.com/jonnybeatz90) SATURDAY

Raised just outside of Chicago, Aaron Holstein was exposed to early house, techno, electro, and hip-hop, becoming a crate-digger at a young age. Breaking was an obsession for the youngster, who came up on Sugar Hill Gang, Al-Naafish, and Art of Noise. Late-night parties at the YMCA later brought the underground dance music of the Second City into Holstein's life—cementing his love for sweaty basements, jam-packed with heads ready to cut loose.
