Marc Cohn "Join the parade"


GRAMMY® AWARD WINNER MARC COHN RETURNS WITH HIS FIRST STUDIO ALBUM IN NEARLY A DECADE MARC COHN Join The Parade It has been nearly a decade since American singer/songwriter Marc Cohn last released a studio album. It has been fifteen years (1992) since he won the Grammy® Award for Best New Artist. Best known for his colossal hit "Walking In Memphis," Cohn returns with a new, passionate and poignant recording JOIN THE PARADE, to be released on October 9th. JOIN THE PARADE is the product of a personal journey. A recording of 10 songs that share a common theme woven from both Cohn's empathic observations after Hurricane Katrina and from a 2005 incident during which the singer found himself the victim of a carjacking in Denver, which left him with a gunshot wound to the head. JOIN THE PARADE is introspective. It is one man's look at the beauty of life through its fragility--spiritually moving and inspirational. Co-produced by long-time guitarist and Bob Dylan band member Charlie Sexton, the album was recorded over a period of a year both in New York, Los Angeles and Austin, Texas. JOIN THE PARADE is a long overdue album that serves to solidify Cohn's already well-known reputation as a great American songwriter.

"Damn near Righteous", New Bill Medley album produced by Steve Dorff


Bill Medley (The Righteous Brothers, GRAMMY®, GOLDEN GLOBE ® and ACADEMY AWARD ® winner and inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2003) has the most successful track record regarding theme songs from cinema. The hit songs from the movies Top Gun ("You've Lost That Loving Feeling" - the most played song in US radio history), Ghost (“Unchained Melody”) and Dirty Dancing (“[I've Had] The Time of My Life") are arguably the most recognizable in US cinematic history. These 3 movies are some of the highest selling catalog titles in US home video history. Produced by multiple-GRAMMY® nominee Steve Dorff and Shayne Fair.

Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys) and Phil Everly (The Everly Brothers) join Medley on a soulful reimagining of “In My Room”.

Collaborators include Steely Dan mainstay, guitarist Dean Parks; Vinnie Colaiuta (Sting, Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, Joni Mitchell), named “the greatest living drummer” by Modern Drummer magazine; drummer J.R. Robinson (Rufus and Chaka Khan, Quincy Jones, Steve Winwood); bassist Joe Chemay (Elton John, Pink Floyd’s The Wall, Shania Twain); keyboardist Jimmy Nichols (Faith Hill, John Mellencamp, Hank Williams, Jr.), Richard Page (Pages, Mr Mister, Third Matinee) and others. One of the album’s most memorable collaborations is a duet with Medley’s 20-year old daughter, McKenna.

Medley’s first album since Bobby Hatfield’s (The Righteous Brothers) untimely passing. This album not only honors the legacy of their historic partnership, but reveals as never before the singular artistry of Medley in his own right.

The recording is comprised of both new material and compelling covers of some particularly resonant classics and contains three recently penned Bill LaBounty songs, "Something Blue" (co-written with
Sam Lorber), "You Rock" (co-written with Pat McLaughlin) and "Sit Down and Hurt" (co-written with Rick Carnes).

Bonus DVD includes archival concert footage and interviews with various artists including Brian Wilson. Extensive publicity including nationally-aired appearances.

"East of angel town", Peter Cincotti new album recorded with David Foster & Humberto Gatica


Peter Cincotti, the 23 year-old singer-songwriter-pianist, brings to life a fresh, cinematic world on his new Warner Bros. album EAST OF ANGEL TOWN. His profoundly evocative songs tell stories woven into melodies that are both individual and universal.

Although the native New Yorker has been writing music since the age of 9, EAST OF ANGEL TOWN marks Cincotti's first work of all original material. Exploring musical styles that blend pop, rock, blues, funk and jazz, Cincotti's percussive piano playing and rich vocals infuse each song with a startling energy. "I wanted each song to come alive in the studio with the same freshness they had when they were first written," he says. "Every element of the production needed to reflect that quality and, more importantly, serve the meaning of the song.”

With topics ranging from the seductive world of Los Angeles ("Angel Town"), male/female dynamics in today's society, ("Be Careful"), a symbolic song of loss, ("Goodbye Philadelphia"), loneliness and love in New York City (“Cinderella Beautiful”), each song tells a unique tale. These stories musically paint characters, both familiar and uncommon, that leave one with the feeling of having walked all day on the streets of Manhattan. When asked if such topics are autobiographical, Cincotti replies, "I think every expression is autobiographical-either literally or symbolically. I don't think it's possible to create something that isn't.”

The realization of EAST OF ANGEL TOWN began when Cincotti teamed up with noted producer and l4-time Grammy winner David Foster, producer Humberto Gatica, and producer/sound designer Jochem van der Saag. "We all worked so closely together every step of the way, and I feel lucky to have had such a tremendous team help me bring this album to life.” Cincotti also collaborated with award-winning lyricist John Bettis. “Writing with John has been such a special experience for me. He's been a partner on this record from the beginning and was the only collaborator I wanted to work with.”

EAST OF ANGEL TOWN's punchy, dynamic sound is simultaneously classic and modern. “This album is very much about the old and the new. Not only within the songs themselves, but also in the way we recorded them. I wanted to combine the classic way of live recording with the many elements of modern production.”

In a way, Cincotti has been combining the old and new ever since he burst onto the scene at age l9 when his debut album - filled with stellar interpretations of jazz standards - led him to become the youngest musician ever to claim the top spot on Billboard's Jazz chart. With his expressive voice, prodigious piano talent and understated charisma, Cincotti soon found his career in a whirlwind that included rapturous press (The New York Times called him "one of the most promising singer-pianists of the next generation").

And how would Peter Cincotti describe the theme of his new record - these brilliant observations and glimpses into the world around him, these stark portraits of unfinished lives? "Well, it's just that I'm always asking myself,” he says with a sly, mischievous grin- "What the hell's going on here?"

Whiskey Falls debut release!


"Last Train Running" One listen to the title track first single of Whiskey Falls’ forthcoming debut album is more than fair warning. At the same time, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.
Start with the vocals. Four-part harmony is there such thing as four-part lead? running from the first verse to the final chorus. Then there’s the song itself. Smartly crafted and emotionally mature. Somewhat surprising from a new band that writes all its own material.

The musicianship is world class. The arrangement, tighter than Tupperware. The production, well, let’s just say it more than measures up. Is it possible for a 14-month old band to have handled all those duties, too? Check, check and check.
So now we’re into full-on intrigue. Who are these guys? Where did they come from? And how in the world did they pop up out of nowhere with a crazy fresh sound that, at the same time, is as comfortable as an old pair of jeans? But before we get there, here’s the kicker: we’ve gotten this far down the road based on one song. One song! Wait ’til people get a load of the album.

The truth is, the guys in Whiskey Falls are almost as astonished by their music as are the music fans who are discovering it. “I’ve been brought to tears a few times on stage by just how special the music is, how amazing the harmonies are.”

That’s Seven Williams speaking. In your standard band configuration, Seven’s the guy who does all the talking. Lead singer, frontman, principle songwriter, et cetera. Except then you have Wally Brandt, who’s no slouch with the vocals and just happens to be second to none in the songwriting and musicianship departments.
