Kevin Gordon’s Louisiana is a strange place. It’s a place that he’s been exploring for twenty years now, on the eve of the release of his astonishing new album ‘Tilt & Shine’ on Crowville Media. It is work that has earned him fans like noted author and Elvis Presley biographer Peter Guralnick; New West Records artist Buddy Miller; journalist, songwriter, and Country Music Hall of Fame staffer Peter Cooper; Todd Snider; head of the Americana Music Association Jed Hilly; and Lucinda Williams, with whom he debuted on the song “Down To The Well” (which was featured prominently on an Oxford American compilation).
Rebecca Loebe’s new album ‘Give Up Your Ghosts’ came out in the spring on Blue Corn Music, “Mixing resilience, empowerment and just a bit of pissed-off punch,” said Rolling Stone Country. Rebecca is a Blue Corn Music recording artist whose 2019 album is ‘Give Up Your Ghosts.’
Gary Nicholson is one of Nashville’s most esteemed songwriters, producers and performers, with a credits list few others can match. His name appears on 600-some recorded songs spanning multiple genres, including the title track of Starr’s latest album, Give More Love; the title track of Guy’s new one, The Blues Is Alive and Well; the Merle Haggard tribute, “He Won’t Ever Be Gone,” on Nelson’s God’s Problem Child; and the first track of Keb’ Mo’s and Taj Mahal’s TajMo, 2018’s Best Contemporary Blues Album Grammy winner. Gary is a Blue Corn Music recording artist.
Born in Brooklyn, Ben De La Cour, the boxer-turned-songwriter has lived in LA, Europe (in a van), Havana, and New Orleans before settling in Nashville. “The High Cost of Living Strange is short in length but long on memorable lyrics and well-honed, live-in-the-studio performances,” says No Depression.
“Leland Sundries, a band from New York led by Nick Loss-Eaton, is dedicated to storytelling in a way that recalls Woody Guthrie and his Folkways brethren. [Their] scrappy Americana will get you longing for empty two-lane highways and kudzu-encased back porches,” says the New York Times. Their July release is entitled, “Pray Through Gritted Teeth.”
Colorado Springs-based artist Xanthe Alexis draws from a wealth of traditional influences to create her own arresting and wholly original musical framework. In 2016 acclaimed singer/songwriter released her Radio Chart Topping, self-released, fan-funded LP, “Time of War.”
Pete Mancini’s new album, “Flying First Class,” was released in the spring on Diversion Records. According to Wide Open Country, “Pete Mancini can bring three chords, the truth, and heartbreak as hard as anybody.”
