ROBERT CRAY releases new album IN MY SOUL - Out April 1 on Provogue

 

NEW YORK, March 31, 2014-- Robert Cray, 5x Grammy winner (15x nominee) releases In My Soul -a rich emotion of classic soul storytelling that never strays from his incomparable guitar mastery.  A new behind the scenes EPK takes fans inside the music.
Produced by Steve Jordan (Keith Richards, John Mayer) the 10 song album blends funky originals with surprising covers.  A bonus track "Pillow" is included on the limited edition CD:
Amazon CD - http://bit.ly/1jrKtDg
iTunes - http://bit.ly/1lhXoaN
First single "You Move Me," is classic Cray with his signature slicing guitar leads woven throughout. The bulk of In My Soul is made up of original material with a few covers including Otis Redding's "Nobody's Fault But Mine," "Your Good Thing (Is About to End)" and "Deep in My Soul" by the late Bobby "Blue" Bland. "I didn't want to change it—just do it pretty straight up as a tribute to Bobby, who was one of my real heroes," says Cray. 
"When I think of Robert Cray, I think of a great singer," says Jordan. "Most people gravitate to his guitar playing because he's such a gunslinger, but I don't. He's got so much soul it's ridiculous." 
Wall Street Journal says In My Soul is "a tasteful, laid-back album, and while there's plenty of Cray's distinctive guitar playing, there's more to the new LP than fiery licks."  UK Daily Mirror calls the album "Impressive" and gives it 4 stars.
Widely recognized as one of the greatest guitarists of our time, The New Yorker calls him "one of the most reliable pleasures of soul and blues for over three decades now " and Rolling Stone Magazine credits him with having "reinvented the blues with his distinct razor sharp guitar playing."
The youngest living member to be inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, Robert Cray has sold over 12 million records, has his own line of Fender guitars and has established himself as a genre defining artist- a signature blend of r&b, pop, rock, soul and traditional blues. 
This year marks the 40th year since the formation of the Robert Cray Band. The band includes Cray (vocals/guitar), longtime bassist Richard Cousins, Dover Weinberg (back with the band on piano/keyboard) and Les Falconer (drums).

Out Today! JOHNNY WORE BLACK 
'Walking Underwater Part I'


The debut release from UK's JOHNNY WORE BLACK out today on Dead Cherry


LOS ANGELES, CA -  - Today marks the official debut of Walking Underwater Part I from London's JOHNNY WORE BLACK!

Blurring the lines between music and a soundtrack; Walking Underwater Part 1 includes the first two previously released singles "All The Rage" and "Up In Flames," as well as sound bites from JWB frontman Jay Cohen's late father's seminal 1967 documentary THE LONDON NOBODY KNOWS. Described as a "rocking, Southern-edged, Tool-toned affair" by Metal Hammer; Walking Underwater Part I features the writing and performance of David Ellefson (MEGADETH) and is now available on iTunes.



Watch the latest video for the single "Up In Flames," here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynKR_ZBeuqs


"Soulful, left of center rock." - Artist Direct  

"A haunting dose of melody and emotion." - A Metal State of Mind

"Dark and brooding, its poignant message about the physical and emotional sacrifice of our armed forces really hits home." -Music Week Magazine   

For Johnny Wore Black all the signs point towards success with "Walking Underwater" (hopefully) just the first of many fine moves by this open and honest dark rock band. - Heavy Metal Time Machine

"Walking Underwater is an example of mood captured in an audio capsule that refuses to float to the surface.  If you wish to purchase an album that doesn't conform, yet provides a top quality set of textures and shades, then prepare yourself to be quietly impressed."
- Screamer Magazine

"A prowling and inciting presence which ignites the passions and sets itself up as one of the most addictive and potently lingering tracks to emerge this year so far. A kind of a cross between Stone Sour and Soundgarden" - Ringmaster Review  


Walking Underwater (Part I ) Tracklist:  
  
1. Different Shades

2. All The Rage

3 Up In Flames

4. So Dusted

5. The Battle

on-sale today at 5pm!
Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers made a needle’s-eye leap onto the national music circuit in 2012, bringing with them a refreshing sound, spirited stage show and wellspring of good vibes, along with a turntable and milk crates stocked with their favorite vintage vinyl for backstage sustenance. Now, the San Francisco-based band and its striking front woman with a girl-next-door demeanor step out with Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, a luminous, heartfelt patchwork of California folk-rock, brisk Americana and show-stopping soul, punctuated with fresh four-part harmonies, crisp rock guitar and Nicki’s soaring, nuanced vocals that some critics say remind them of Linda Ronstadt.  The first record under the banner of the full band, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers is very much a family album, featuring 11 new songs penned by the band members, arranged and produced by Nicki’s husband and the band’s musical director, Tim Bluhm, and recorded at the Bluhm’s Mission Bells studio in San Francisco.

 ROCK LEGEND ACE FREHLEY SIGNS WORLDWIDE MULTI ALBUM DEAL WITH ENTERTAINMENT ONE MUSIC
 
 
 

"SPACE INVADER," FIRST NEW ALBUM
IN FIVE YEARS, AVAILABLE ON 6/24/14

FREHLEY TO BE INDUCTED INTO ROCK
AND ROLL HALL OF FAME AND
TO APPEAR AT THE REVOLVER GOLDEN
GODS AWARDS IN APRIL
 
(New York, NY) - 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee  ACE FREHLEY will release SPACE INVADER, his first new solo album in five years, via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) on June 24th, 2014. The album will include at least nine brand new original songs as well as a cover of Steve Miller’s “The Joker.”  This album is the first release under Frehley's new universal deal on eOne Music.

Frehley has released an official statement surrounding the exciting news:
 
“Life on Earth has been very good to me, and the body of work I’ve created over the years has withstood the test of time.  Today I see no obstacles before me and my creativity has never been more fine tuned. Growing up in an Alien world has enhanced my senses and allowed me to succeed where others would have failed. The best is yet to come!” 

Widely known as the original “Space Ace" and founding guitarist for 16 cumulative years (over 2 tenures) of the multi platinum selling rock band KISS, Frehley is demonstrably the most popular original member.  In addition to having the best selling solo album career (vintage or current) among the original foursome, Frehley’s self titled Ace Frehley, released in 1978, went on to sell over one million copies, producing the only Top 40 single, “New York Groove,” from any of the legendary KISS solo albums; (peaking at #13).   The massive hit was most recently featured in an episode of cult show “Entourage” and was also KISS’ second bestselling download in 2012, besting such KISS Army anthems as “I Was Made For Lovin’ You,” “Beth” and “Calling Dr. Love” even after 36 years.

Since departing from KISS, Frehley went on to release four more solo albums and one live EP including his most recent effort, Anomaly in 2009, which debuted at #27 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and received a welcoming response among critics. "’Anomaly' shows why many rock and metal guitarists list ‘Space Ace’ as a prime six-string influence," said Rolling Stone.

ACE FREHLEY will participate in the 2014 REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS show by presenting the Dimebag Darrell "Best Guitarist" Award alongside label-mate Zakk Wylde. The awards show will take place on April 23, 2014 at the CLUB NOKIA Theater in Los Angeles. Tickets are on sale now!

Frehley adds comment.

 
 “It’s exciting to finally be part of the Golden Gods, awards and an honor to be part of any Dimebag memorial award.  He was a friend, and I know everyone misses him, as do I.”

The show will feature 13 different award categories across all genres of music, including Artist of the Year, Best New Artist, Song of the Year, Country Song of the Year, EDM Song of the Year, Hip Hop/R&B Song of the Year, Alt Rock Song of the Year, Best Lyrics, Best Collaboration and more.  Each voting category initially features 10 nominees – listeners will then narrow down to five finalists during a four-week period, with the finalists to be announced during a one-hour special live event on March 26, 2014 at the iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles.  Fans will then vote over the next several weeks, to determine the winners in each category.
"With a reach of more than 240 million people every month, Clear Channel has an unparalleled ability to identify and track the biggest artists and songs in the country," said John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for Clear Channel in a statement“The iHeartRadio Music Awards will be the first awards show in history to reflect America’s favorite music, and which is truly powered by the people."
The iHeartRadio Music Awards air live from Los Angeles May 1st on NBC. The show, which will feature performances from other Los Angeles venues, will also broadcast and stream live across all participating Clear Channel radio stations and their websites, and on iHeartRadio.

MARCH 26, 2014 - Los Angeles, CA - UK duo Royal Blood (23 year-old vocalist/bassist Mike Kerr and 25 year-old drummer Ben Thatcher) will return to the U.S. in May for live dates in New York and Los Angeles. The trip will follow the band's recent sold out headline tour in the UK, a slot on the N.M.E. tour with Interpol, a nomination for the BBC Sound of 2014 poll, and four jam-packed sets at the 2014's SXSW Music Conference and Festival in Austin, Texas.  Tickets for the three newly announced U.S. dates will be available beginning this Friday, March 28th at 9:00 AM local time (ticket links below).

Royal Blood is a mixture of anguished vocals, ferocious drumming and bass that provides intricate detail as well as a rumble of rhythm. The duo's sound is a result of a lineage that stretches from present day heroes Queens of the Stone Age to the influential Led Zeppelin, and all the way back to early blues pioneers... yet this huge wall of sound emerges from just two men.  In next to no time, the two have earned critical praise following the release of their debut single "Out of the Black" on the band's own label Black Mammoth Records last year. Now signed to Warner Bros. Records in the U.S., the label released Royal Blood's debut EP Out of The Black EP on March 18th.

Royal Blood will return to the studio later this spring to put the finishing touches on their debut full-length album due to be released before the end of the year.
