Jeb Loy Nichols – That’s How We’re Living

Jeb Loy Nichols Jeb Loy Nichols originally hails from Missouri and has lived in Texas, New York and London. He has a fascinating, Zelig-like story, all of which feeds into his authentic, experience-infused music. He caught an original Sex Pistols show in Texas, danced to Larry Levan at the Paradise Garage and witnessed Bambaataa rock Bronx blocks.
He worked in New York’s Record City, selling obscure James Brown singles to Prince Paul, and Fela Kuti vinyl to Brian Eno and David Byrne – just before they recorded ‘Remain In Light’. In London he shared a house with Ari Up from The Slits and Neneh Cherry, and forged a bond with Adrian Sherwood amidst the earth shaking ridims of Jah Shaka’s sound system.
This joining-of-the-dots between genres seemingly unrelated to the casual novice has won Jeb high regard from clued up heads, but has also contributed to his occupying a nebulous space within pigeonhole happy popular music. He has steadfastly ploughed his own furrow, navigating a route around mainstream recognition, at times over rocky terrain.

Peter Searcy – Better Lie

petersearcyPeter Searcy is a musician from Louisville KY. Spin Magazine, Scott Irwin, and Amanda Green have compared Searcy’s straightforward songwriting style and voice to those of Paul Westerberg. Like Paul Westerberg of The Replacements, Searcy is a veteran of the post-punk scene. Searcy was the frontman of the Louisville punk group Squirrel Bait in the 1980s. After Squirrel Bait disbanded, Searcy (along with Squirrel Bait drummer Ben Daughtrey) formed a funk-rock group called Fanci Pantz. After the demise of Fanci Pantz, Searcy joined Big Wheel in 1989, which released three albums before breaking up in 1993. His next band, Starbilly, released only one album, after which Searcy began performing solo. He released one album, “Could You Please and Thank You” in 2000. Its style has been compared to that of the Counting Crows and The Wallflowers. The album was followed by a self-released EP and a second full-length album in 2004, followed by Spark.

Old 97’s – Good With God

old97sAlthough they became one of the most enduring bands in the alternative country-rock catalog, Old 97’s drew inspiration from a broad range of genres, including the twangy stomp of cowpunk and the melodies of power pop. Formed in 1993 by frontman Rhett Miller and bassist Murry Hammond, the group spent the bulk of the decade posed on the brink of mainstream success, issuing albums that often drew warm reviews but never yielded a substantial hit. Old 97’s tightened their sound as the decade drew to a close, retaining their bar-band vigor while introducing a stronger pop/rock sound on albums like Too Far to Care and Satellite Rides. Miller also mounted a solo career in the early 2000s, but the band remained together nonetheless, continuing to release material with their original lineup intact into the following decade.
Miller and Hammond linked up with lead guitarist Ken Bethea and recorded a demo tape at the Cedar Creek studio in Austin. Drummer Philip Peeples climbed on board shortly thereafter, and Hammond’s childhood obsession with trains inspired the band’s name, which paid homage to the country ballad “Wreck of the Old 97.”
