Dustin Arbuckle and the Damnations – Say My Name

The Kansas native marks hearing the Leadbelly classic “Gallows Pole” as his earliest music memory, becoming an astute devotee of the blues by the time he’d reached his teens. “That turned out to be a jumping off point, though,” he says.

“I always loved Howlin’ Wolf, but as I got older and started opening my mind to a wider range of music, I’d turn around and listen to the Allman Brothers Band, then Johnny Cash, Sam & Dave, or Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.

I hope you’ll hear some of that reach with The Damnations.”

Andreas Moe – Ocean (acoustic)

Two things to know about Swedish singer-songwriter Andreas Moe:

1)he grew up listening to Iron Maiden andneoclassical metal guitaristYngwie Malmsteen and 2)Andreas’Nettwerk debut EP Maybe It’s All We Dreamed Ofwas inspired while visiting nursing homes throughout Sweden and interviewing its residents.

While writing his latest EP, Andreas uncovered a true fountain of inspiration that affected him both musically and personally. Inspired by David Lynch’s The Interview Project, Andreas “got a proper education.”“I got tired of writing about my own experiences,” he admits. “I needed to see life from another perspective. My elders inspire me. I thought I’d interview them and see what they have to say regarding dreams, love, family, growing up, and all of that. It definitely gave me some other angles. When I walked out, my first thought was, ‘I need to appreciate life more.’Our decisions stick with us forever, so I want to make sure I don’t have any regrets.

Son Little – O Me O My

For Son Little, the genesis of a musical idea—the magic—remains largely a mystery. But his kinetic ability to summon that energy all the same, to command it, hold onto it, and set it in motion, is the stuff of alchemy.
“The magic is this well I can draw from; you can’t necessarily see it, you just have to believe that it’s there,” he says. “If you believe, then you can reach your hand down in there and get it wet. But if you don’t feel like it’s there, it won’t be.”
Son Little, the singer and songwriter born Aaron Livingston, is the easygoing musical alchemist of our time. He is a conjurer, and much like those of his heroes Stevie Wonder and Jimi Hendrix, his songs are deconstructions of the diaspora of American R & B. Deftly he weaves different eras of the sound—blues, soul, gospel, rock and roll—through his own unique vision, never forced, always smooth, each note a tributary on the flowing river of rhythm and blues. The currents empty into an estuary, and into this well water Son dips his bucket—trusting innately in the magic’s existence. And now, with his second full-length album, New Magic, he has delivered a profound statement, a cohesive creation that captures the diverse spirit of American music in a fresh and modern way.

Morrissey – Spent The Day In Bed

Iconic, influential, enigmatic, inspiring, seminal, pioneering, provocative, revered, forthright, romantic.. Morrissey is all this and much more. The BBC has cited him as “one of the most influential figures in the history of British pop”, whilst an NME poll declared The Smiths the “most influential act ever”, even topping the Beatles. Rolling Stone named him one of the greatest singers of all time in a recent poll, and noted that his “rejection of convention” in his vocal style and lyrics is the reason “why he redefined the sound of British rock for the past quarter-century”. In 1998, he was presented with the Ivor Novello Award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to British Music’.
The iconic frontman of The Smiths, Morrissey is widely credited as a seminal figure in British music, leading his former band to 15 studio, live and compilation albums in their short five years together, with Louder Than Bombs (1987), Meat Is Murder (1985), The Queen Is Dead (1986) and 5 other releases certified gold in the UK.
Since disbanding The Smiths, Morrissey has achieved even greater success as a solo artist launching a prolific career that has seen all 10 of his records enter the UK charts in the top ten, including three landing at #1.

Jeremy & The Harlequins – Little One

You know you’re doing something right when Bruce Springsteen’s right hand man decides your song is the coolest track in the world. That’s exactly what Steve Van Zandt did this June –picking ‘Trip Into The Light’ for that very accolade on his Little Steven’s Underground Garage radio show. It’s easy to hear why – the opening song from Jeremy And The Harlequins’ debut full-length, American Dreamer, it sparkles and shimmers with the glamor of rock’n’roll’s past while simultaneously forging forward into the future with confidence. Channeling the influences of 1950s and ’60s rock’n’roll through the (cell phone) camera lens of 2015, Jeremy And The Harlequins – Jeremy Fury (vocals), Craig Bonich and Patrick Meyer (guitars), Stevie Fury (drums) and Bobby Ever (bass) – have managed to capture the sound of New York both in the here and now and the there and then. It’s a record about love and loss, tragedy and romanticism, dreams and reality, as well as everything in between, and its ten songs are at once familiar and fresh, a new friend it feels like you’ve known for decades.

James Maddock – What The Elephants Know

Since 1999, James Maddock’s boldly vulnerable songwriting, honeyed rasp, and distinct folk and Americana aesthetic have garnered acclaim from icons, peers, and tastemaking outlets like NPR, American Songwriter, Relix Magazine, and CMT Edge. His consistency as a recording artist and a captivating live performer have attracted a devoted fanbase engaged and generous enough to fan fund the last two entries in his six-album oeuvre. He’s performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows), sang on an album with Susan McKeown, and has built a respected international profile through tireless touring from the Northeast US to Europe to Australia.

It was in this context that he was first introduced to a mainstream audience when songs from the group’s debut, Songs From Stamford Hill, were prominently featured in Dawson’s Creek. In 2003, Maddock relocated from England to New York, and, soon after, launched his solo career. His 2009 solo album Sunrise On Avenue C won a New York Music Award for “Best Americana Album.”

Jackie Greene – Modern Lives

Hailed as “the Prince of Americana” by the New York Times, Jackie Greene has always had a knack for capturing the human experience in all its messy, emotional complexity, and on his new EP, ‘The Modern Lives – Vol 1,’ he draws inspiration from some of the great social paradoxes of our 21st century world: that the technology designed to simplify our lives can actually complicate them in ways we’d never imagined, that the most crowded cities can actually be the loneliest places to live, that the constructs meant to connect us to each other can actually leave us feeling more isolated than ever. Greene’s been chasing a sense of authentic human connection through art ever since his teenage years, when he began self-recording and releasing his own music in central California. After a critically acclaimed independent debut, he signed his first record deal and embarked on a lifetime of recording and touring that would see him supporting the likes of BB King, Mark Knopfler, Susan Tedeschi, and Taj Mahal, in addition to gracing festival stages from Bonnaroo to Outside Lands. The New York Times hailed his “spiritual balladry,” Bob Weir anointed him the “cowboy poet” of Americana and blues, and the San Francisco Chronicle raved that he has “a natural and intuitive connection with… just about any musical instrument.”
