Adrian Duffy & The Mayo Brothers – Push Those Keys

AD-2“United We Fall” is the follow-up to Adrian Duffy & The Mayo Brothers‘ recent EP’s “Storm Breaking” & “Someone Like You”, which spent 12 weeks on Ireland’s national RTE Radio 1 playlist alongside Hozier, Rufus Wainwright & Roseanne Cash, and received 1000’s of spins across Canadian, Danish, Irish, Swedish, UK & US radio. Forming the core of First Aid Kit’s live band, the London Irish brothers new album was successfully PledgeMusic funded. With additional musical input from uncles Ray & Leo Duffy (mandolin & fiddle), Grand Ole Opry performers, who supported the likes of Don Williams, Tammy Wynette, Charlie Pride & Johnny Cash back in the early 80’s, the brothers infuse their own influences Steve Earle, Wilco, Little Feat, Shawn Colvin, The Band, & Emmylou Harris to give them their unique americana, folk-rock style. Melvin Duffy’s pedal steel & slide guitar skills continue to be put to use by many great artists around the world, including Van Morrison, Robbie Williams, The Waterboys, UB40, Squeeze & First Aid Kit.

Sonny Landreth – The High Side

Sonny_LandrethSonny Landreth’s new album, Bound By The Blues, marks a return to the slide guitarist’s musical roots. It presents a bold, big-sounding collection of recordings that climb to stratospheric heights of jazz informed improvisation, swagger like the best of classic rock, and inevitably remain deeply attached to the elemental emotional and compositional structures that are at the historic core of the blues.
With Landreth’s mountainous guitar tones and nuanced singing leading the way on its ten songs, Bound By the Blues is a powerful tribute to the durability and flexibility of the genre, and to his own creative vision. It’s also a radical departure from his previous two albums, 2012’s classical/jazz fusion outing Elemental Journey and 2008’s guest-star-studded From the Reach.
Bound By the Blues, the guitarist’s twelfth album, pivots on the song “Where They Will.” Its gloriously chiming cascades of six-string, and the refrain “Let the blues take me where they will,” serve as a musical blueprint for the album. “The blues has been a big part of my journey for the past 40-plus years,” Landreth attests. “Some of the numbers on this album are among the first I learned. I wrote ‘Where They Will’ about my relationship to blues – letting the music lead me to new sounds and improvisational passages, and introduce me to things I haven’t played before.”

Amy Helm – Rescue Me

amy-helm
Amy Helm’s deep musical roots were enriched by a lifetime of exposure to the finest expressions of American musical tradition. Combined with her stunning vocal and other creative gifts, those roots have grown up to reveal a spellbinding artist who moves easily through a broad range of musical styles.
The daughter of music legend Levon Helm and singer/songwriter Libby Titus Fagen, Helm wields a powerful voice that can both stir and soothe, whether she is singing traditional gospel, blues standards or her own heartfelt compositions. She is a gifted musician on both mandolin and drums, and has clearly absorbed the lessons of the many other accomplished artists with whom she has shared stages, including Mavis Staples, Emmylou Harris, and Joan Osborne as well as other uniquely American performers like Dr. John and Hubert Sumlin.
A founding member of the roots band Ollabelle, with whom she has recorded three CDs, Helm has also performed live with scores of notable musicians like Warren Haynes, The Wood Brothers, and Donald Fagen, and her distinctive voice can be heard on recordings by artists ranging from Mercury Rev to Marc Cohn.
