Chris Knight doesn’t like to say much. Won’t chat about his worldview or engage in conversations on his creative approach. For 15 years, 7 acclaimed albums and a hard-nosed career that’s been hailed as “where Cormac McCarthy meets Copperhead Road”, Knight has always let his music do most of the talking. And on record – as well everywhere across America, from roadhouse taverns to major-city concert halls – his songs have had plenty to say. But with his latest album Little Victories (September 2012), Chris Knight has taken the discussion to a whole new level. Read more

Three weeks away from the release of The Wild Mercury, Vandaveer are debuting a captivating new animated video, directed by Michael Lloyd, via NPR.

A Little Time Off Ahead” is an upbeat number off the fifth, and career-defining LP for the band. The video’s “storybook” aesthetic, coupled with the syrup-sweet doubled vocal delivery of the song, could have easily touched on saccharine with many other collaborators, but predictably, with the earnest talents of both frontman Mark Charles Heidinger, and director Michael Lloyd, the end result dovetails as well as fans might hope.
