ALO – Not Old Yet

ALO is more than a band. It’s a musical relationship that has endured for over two decades, with band members playing in numerous projects together and apart. Following the 2012 release of their freewheeling Sounds Like This, the band took time off to work on various side projects. Zach Gill (keys/vocals) toured the world with the band’s college pal Jack Johnson; Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz (guitar/vocals) played shows with the Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh; Steve Adams (bass/vocals) toured and recorded with Nicki Bluhm & the Gramblers; Dave Brogan (drums/vocals) joined up with Utah band, Mokie. These and other endeavors have all influenced the band’s new album Tangle Of Time.
More than previous releases, Tangle Of Time really taps into what makes ALO unique. It’s that special blend of classic songwriting and the ability to stretch out jams and distill dance floor grooves. It’s heartfelt lyrics that make you smile, reflect and just want to sing along either way. It’s four great musicians who all write and sing. And four friends who’ve been through a lot together and still support, challenge and inspire one another.

“I really appreciate the guys right now, more so than ever,” Gill shared, excitedly adding, “Years ago the feeling was, ‘I wanna get to my songs and see how they sound while we’re all here’, whereas now I’m rooting for everyone else’s songs. It’s great.”

Tedeschi Trucks Band – Anyhow

Tedeschi-Trucks-Band-1024x716

When Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi decided three years ago to dispense with their much-loved individual bands and pool their talents, they had no way of knowing what the public reaction might be to the new hybrid. They found out quickly enough when Revelator, Tedeschi Trucks Band’s 2011 studio debut, excited their sizable, devoted fan bases and the movers and shakers of the music industry alike, landing TTB both a Best Blues Album Grammy and a Blues Music Award for Album of the Year. Their live followup, Everybody’s Talkin’—documenting what many were already regarding as one of the most superb concert acts around not even two years into their existence—continued that forward momentum and picked up a Blues Music Award for Best Rock Blues Album (Susan, Derek and TTB itself each took home separate Blues Music Awards in 2012 as well). There’s nothing Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks would rather do than create music with this band. “We all work hard,” says Derek, “and we’re all working toward making it even better. We are very fortunate to do what we do.”

Run River North – Run or Hide

RunRiverNorthBased in California’s San Fernando Valley, Run River North is a six-member indie pop ensemble that originally formed in 2011 under the name Monsters Calling Home. After filming a unique video for their song “Fight to Keep” in the back seats of their small Honda cars, they caught the attention of the marketing department at Honda, which used the song in a commercial. Working with producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, the Shins, Band of Horses), they recorded their self-titled debut album, which was released in February 2014. After a busy year touring and promoting their debut, the band began to alter both their sound and their creative methods. Writing more as a group, they adopted a newfound electric sound and a slightly darker tone on their follow-up album, which they recorded with producer Lars Stalfors (Cold War Kids, HEALTH). Recorded in Los Angeles, Run River North’s sophomore album, Drinking from a Salt Pond, was pegged for a February 2016 release. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
