First Year On Earth is playing two upcoming shows in Nashville:

  • Thursday, July 9th at Mad Donna’s and
  • Sunday, July 12th at Bluebird Cafe.

First Year On Earth has an incredible back story! Frontman Ryan Murphy was spurred to live one year of his life as if it were his last, after witnessing a friend tragically lose his life. He sold what he had and hit the road with nothing but a backpack and a bucket list, featuring items like Run A Marathon, Move To New York, Be In A Play, and of course, Write An Album! In collaboration with the rest of his bandmates, this self-titled EP was born, mixing the best of folk, pop, roots, jazz, and country—sure to please fans of The Avett Brothers, Brett Dennen, and The Lumineers!

First Year On Earth just recently released their debut self-titled EP! Listen to their newest single, “Poor Man”. You can also stream “Best Is Yet To Come”, and  “Georgia”.

The Serotones Announce Summer 2015 Tour

The Serotones
Long Island alternative rock band The Serotones are about to embark on their summer 2015 tour, a two-week trek that will hit clubs throughout the East Coast and Midwest. The band is renowned for goosebump-inducing melodies backed by prog-fueled rhythms, a combination that has built them a strong following in Long Island and New York City. The Serotones are ready to take the next step, and expand their fan base in new cities far from home. The tour is set to kick off on July 20th with a show at the resurrected New Jersey rock institution, Maxwell’s Tavern.

The Serotones will be promoting songs from their self-titled EP, released in November of 2014. The band had the DIY initiative to support the release of their EP with a self-financed radio campaign. The lead single “Silver” charted in the top 30 at over 18 college & non-comm stations across the US & Canada, including 4 weeks at No. 1 at CSCR in Toronto. The band further promoted the song with a music video rich in noir imagery.

The Serotones Summer 2015 Tour Dates

  • 7/20: Hoboken, NJ @ Maxwell’s Tavern. w/ Joy Ride & Flammable Animals
  • 7/21: Philadelphia, PA @ Kung-Fu Necktie. w/ The Mellowells, Worries, & Absolute Sky
  • 7/22: Washington DC @ Velvet Lounge. w/ Motion Lines, Gravity Lens, & Drive TFC
  • 7/23: Baltimore, MD @ The Depot.
  • 7/26: Pittsburgh, PA @ James Street Gastropub & Speakeasy. w/ Orange Mammoth & Plaid Noise

  • 7/30: Troy, NY @ River Street Pub. w/ Flakjacket
  • 7/31: New London, CT @ Oasis Pub w/ Matzah Cigar

The Serotones have come a long way since they began three years ago as a teenage collaboration between vocalist/guitarist Kevin Eiserman and drummer Jared Gabrielli. They’ve since added bassist Matt Cusano, lead guitarist James Humphreys, and vocalist/keyboardist April Gabrielli, creating an ensemble sound with crackling chemistry and chops to burn. Kevin and April’s fiery interplay makes them the most exciting vocal duo of any young rock band in recent memory. Mike Watts (As Tall As Lions, The Dear Hunter) produced the band’s debut EP, and The Serotones have played Northeast festivals alongside Taking Back Sunday and Circa Survive.

Listen: Dirty Hands by Fox and the Law plus Upcoming Tour Dates

Armed with a potent combo of garage-punk, psychedelic-metal and American soul music, Fox and The Law seem emblematic of Seattle’s eclectic, fuzzed-out rock scene.

Drawing inspiration from The Stooges, Black Sabbath, METZ and Built to Spill, the band has created their own brand of stoner-glam, the soundtrack to a smokey, rain-soaked beach party in the Pacific Northwest.

The Trouble With People (Out on FunkFarm on July 10th), like the previous FaTL records, was recorded in under five days, attempting to capture the explosive, manic energy of the band’s infamous live shows. Produced by Graig Markel (Nada Surf, Band of Horses, The Grizzled Mighty), the band has added new depth to their catalogue, exploring themes of death, end-times, failed relationships, and what happens once the party ends and you’re left with the mess.

LOCAL TOUR DATES

Wildwood Revival: “an anti-festival for the rest of y’all” + Newport showcase

Wildwood Revival expands to a two-day festival on August 29-30 featuring American Aquarium, Lindi Ortega, Water Liars, Tall Tall Trees, Christopher Paul Stelling, The Blackfoot Gypsies, Kelsey Waldon, Woody Pines, The Defibulators, Strung Like A Horse, Joe Fletcher and the Wrong Reasons, Ramsay Midwood, and Athens locals Cicada Rhythm and The Darnell Boys. 

Wildwood Festival

Wildwood Revival is an intimate, thoughtfully curated boutique festival tailored towards a truly unique music and cultural experience for all, located just on the outskirts of Athens, Georgia on a historic 30-acre farm. It’s a little bit country, a little bit rock n’ roll, and everything in between. This event combines the soul of a juke joint, the wild spirit of a honky tonk, and the camaraderie of a supper club. The artisan market features vintage clothing, printmakers, wood workers, 1800s era tintype photography, leather makers, handmade crafts and more. It’s a cultural Revival; what’s old is new again. Get out of the city and come join in. 

The festival puts an emphasis on pulling in local and regional businesses from throughout the Southeast. Vendors include eclectic, handmade jewelry by Fossil + Hide, vintage clothing by Gunstreet Goods, handmade leather products by In Blue Handmade, letterpress paper goods from Cotton + Pine, a 1968 Shasta Camper-turned-photobooth by BOHObooth, handmade and custom-fit hats from Havstad Hats, and nostalgic, vintage t-shirts from Bandit Brand.

At Wildwood Revival, everything is about the experience. Its aim is to make everyone feel like they’re getting VIP treatment. Guests come to get off the grid and enjoy authentic music in an open-air barn and share a meal with friends, then sit by a bonfire for a fireside sing-along and camp under the stars.

It’s quite unlike many festival experiences where attendees are milked mercilessly by paying for $8 beers and $15 meals after standing in prohibitively long lines, crammed in amongst thousands of people herded from one generic stage to another past corporate advertisements and surrounded everywhere by trash, plastic bottles and greasy styrofoam.

Guests of Wildwood Revival can expect:
  • Two full days of live music with an artist lineup comprised of both familiar favorites as well as new musical discoveries
  • A dance party to remember. Saturday evening wraps up with what GQ Magazine calls “The Most Stylish Party in America.” The fellas from ELECTRIC WESTERN present their wildly successful rock and soul dance party, spinning a hand-selected mix of the most danceable popular and obscure 50’s and 60’s Rock and Roll, Soul, Doo Wop, Garage Rock and more. Electric Western is not your typical DJ collective. Jacob Jones and Reno Bo have been throwing “Dance Parties” every Monday in East Nashville’s happening Five Points neighborhood for the last six years now. They’ve since expanded their parties to Atlanta once a month with over 750 attendees, and even went on tour recently as the opening act for Sturgill Simpson.
  • A Sunday morning gospel brunch where campers and returning guests enjoy a variety of artists acoustic renditions of old gospel tunes, a bloody mary bar sponsored by Cathead Vodka and a full breakfast menu to include breakfast tacos and a build-your-own biscuit bar featuring Buttermilk Biscuits, Southern White Milk Gravy, “Put Up” Homemade Jams, Butter, Peach Butter, Honey, Smoked Apple Sausage Links, Coca-Cola Glazed Country Ham, and Buttermilk Fried Chicken.
  • Following the gospel brunch, there will be a shaded yoga session and wiffle ball game in the field before music begins at noon.
  • An aesthetically beautiful, unique location set amongst a serene, country background. The estate is shaded by many pecan trees and the music takes place in a covered open-air barn.
  • Free filtered water
  • Beverages served in mason jars, creating a plastic-free event
  • $4 craft beer from Terrapin Beer Co.
  • A variety of meals comprised of fresh, locally grown food priced similar to neighborhood restaurants and served on compostable plates. Food vendors thus far include Athens’ own Heirloom Café, A Divine Event Catering and Hip Pops gourmet handmade popsicles. Food truck vendors to be announced soon.
  • Camping in the picturesque, rolling countryside by teepee, tent or trailer.
  • Sunday morning yoga session to stretch and energize before another music-filled day

Limited number of tickets available in order to provide an ideal, intimate environment

Tickets may be purchased at www.wildwoodrevival.com for $38.

Frazierband Live at Acoustic Coffeehouse July 19th in Johnson City, TN

FRAZIERBAND PRESENT TWIST ON PROGRESSIVE BLUEGRASS ON UPCOMING ALBUM

FrazierBand

Much Sought After Multi-Instrumentalist John Frazier Putting Finishing Touches on New Album & Hitting the Road

“Frazier’s compositions, which account for most of the album’s material, are nicely executed blends of jazz, string band music and more, and both the picking and the singing are top-shelf.” -The Nashville Scene

Los Angeles, CA: John Frazier, the multi-instrumentalist Nashville-based founder of FrazierBand—a freewheeling quartet putting their distinctive spin on progressive bluegrass–is putting the finishing touches on their new album, FrazierBand: Some People Change, the follow up to their eponymous 2012 debut.

Consisting of Frazier on vocals, mandolin, guitar and fiddle, banjo players Matt Menefee and Kyle Tuttle and drummer Jim Kittleman, FrazierBand have evolved into a more cohesive band having honed their chemistry through an exhaustive touring schedule—over 125 dates from 2013-2014 (an energy captured on their explosive 2014 recording Live at the Five Spot).

The band recorded their new album in East Nashville with producer Daniel Rice (Cadillac Sky) who helped take their progressive bluegrass/rock hybrid sound to a new level. The first single from the album “The Rod & The Cane,” will be released to radio later this month.

FrazierBand : Some People Change will be released in September.

Long a fixture on the progressive bluegrass, or Newgrass, scenes, Frazier has been a much sought after string collaborator and is considered one of Music City’s elite acoustic performers. From his beginnings in the acclaimed Colorado string band Hit & Run Bluegrass, Frazier has toured and performed with everyone from Del McCoury, Bela Fleck, JD Crowe and Grammy winning Jim Lauderdale Bluegrass Band to John Prine, Dierks Bentley and Steve Martin. With FrazierBand he’s developed a huge following throughout the Southeast, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions which continues to grow with his tireless touring. A national tour is in the works—dates TBA.

Says Frazier: “When I did the first album, I thought it might be about me as individual artist with a solo project and a great team of musicians helping me present my songs. But I quickly realized I wanted a more unified ensemble sound…so going into the studio this time, we now have a true band identity. We’ve all evolved together and the songs, production and presentation are much more concise.”

CLIF BAR’S GREENNOTES PROGRAM LAUNCHES WEB-SERIES, MATCH-MAKING SITE AND JOINS TOAD THE WET SPROCKET SUMMER TOUR.

As young artists and non-profits start out in the world, they’re faced with the same dilemma: audience development.

To be a musician, you must be patient, work hard at your craft and have something to say. For developing grassroots organizations, the growing pains are the same. It can be disheartening, and too many promising voices get drowned out in the process.

In 2015, Clif Bar & Company relaunched a multi-platformed program called GreenNotes. It consists of a video series, an artist grant, a website, a profile driven hub, and a dynamic matchmaking system between musicians and non-profits. GreenNotes was born out of the idea that art can serve as a powerful microphone for change and can act as a catalyst for social movements. The program operates on the belief that people can partner to help build that voice, stand for something bigger and rise above all the noise. GreenNotes provides cutting-edge resources for nonprofits and musicians to promote change in four core areas: the environment, food systems, homelessness, and hunger.

“We launched GreenNotes to make it easier for musicians to make positive change in the world,” says Thao Pham, Vice President of Community at Clif Bar & Company. “The GreenNotes website is a simple and effective tool that puts musicians and nonprofits together. Music coupled with nonprofits is incredibly powerful in its impact on society.”

The program works through matchmaking, grants, research, and a series of best-practice documents designed to give nonprofits and their artist partners a template for embedding social change initiatives in their work. This site aims to capture, open source, and broadcast what works best and why. As the platform builds, the scale and the scope of the program will grow alongside it. Going forward, GreenNotes will continue to expand its reach, participation, and documentation to become an essential tool for the social change community.

GreenNotes will join Toad The Wet Sprocket this Summer on their tour with Smashmouth and Tonic. The bands will all be working with a series of non-profit partners including Love Hope Strength, Harmony 4 Hope, SuperFood Drive and a variety of local food justice and access orgs throughout their tour and beyond.

Says Toad The Wet Sprocket frontman Glen Phillips, “Artists tend to be the canary in the coal mine for social issues. You get a unique point of view as you tour and travel; an insight into different communities, their needs and challenges. It is not just an opportunity, it’s an obligation to do our best to amplify and shine a light on the good work of our nonprofit partners.”

Over the course of 2013-2014, Clif Bar awarded grants to four musicians who demonstrated serious dedication to creating long lasting and sustainable change. Recipients included Grammy-nominated SOJA, who focused on the environmental impact of their tour, rapper Astronautalis, who visited a local food bank to perform a pop-up concert, SF-based Stone Foxes, who looked at homelessness, and Minneapolis-based Dessa, who explored issues in sustainable food on the road.

The site launch kicked off at SXSW with a three-day concert featuring Boxed In, Amason, Jukebox The Ghost, Hey Marseilles, Gill Landry (Old Crow Medicine Show), Jesse Harris, Chadwick Stokes (Dispatch), The Lighthouse and The Whaler, Talk In Tongues, The Family Crest, Doomtree, Surfer Blood, Charlie Belle, Max Jury, Royal Teeth, Sam Pinkerton, Paper Aeroplanes, The Wans, Ryan Culwell, Anthony D’Amato, Humming House, BLKATHY, Magic Giant, Colony House, Blank Range, Mother Falcon, Andrew Combs, Yellerkin, Propaganda, Shaprece, Five Eight and Astronautalis.

Andy Bothwell (Astronautalis) reflects, “There is no shortage of work to be done, both small and large, to make your town, or your country, and even the world a better place. However, it can be daunting at times to try and find a way that you can actually help, in a hands on way. GreenNotes was able to help me focus my energies on a cause, and an organization, that I can get behind wholeheartedly. And to me, that is priceless.”
