A new voice from the Midwest comes from songwriter Matt Mooney.   He’s introducing or perhaps just reworking a modern interpretation of a Ziggy Stardust-esque persona with his alter-ego/stage name Royal Holland.  He’s just self-released 2 of 3 eps that tell a tragic story of young love lost through death and the sky kingdoms’ tyranny.  In the songs, he tries keep her memory alive and also deals with his surmounting grief.

JEREMY PINNELL UNVEILS NEW MUSIC AS PART OF DAYTROTTER SESSION! EURO & U.S. TOURS THIS FALL

Jeremy Pinnell

Jeremy Pinnell

Jeremy Pinnell, Northern Kentucky’s son from across the river, is a soft-spoken man, born to an area that is equal parts Southern hospitality, Northern attitude and Midwestern charm. Raised from humble beginnings of singing in church and learning the guitar from his father, his craft quickly made heads turn and rooms fall silent. But with his departure from home at 18 to venture into the unknown with only his music, this young man soon found himself surrounded by the demons of the world he used to try and sing away.

About KING RECORDS MONTH:
This September marks the 72nd anniversary of the first songs recorded for the Cincinnati label, King Records. In September 1943 Syd Nathan convinced two WLW radio performers, Grandpa Jones and Merle Travis, to go along with his latest brainstorm – a record company based in Cincinnati. This four-song session would lead to King Records producing nearly 30 years of music in all genres while based out of the Queen City. September will be a month long celebration, honoring the founding of Syd’s company, and its contribution to American music, with events planned for every weekend. Over 22 events (mostly free) include concerts, displays, author visits, plays, album listening parties, radio shows, and even a chance to buy your own King vinyl or compact discs at a discounted price.

About BIG LAZY:
Big Lazy’s music dwells in the unmistakable landscape of gritty yet gracefully crafted American music. With stark instrumentation – electric guitar, acoustic bass and drums – the trio creates richly evocative soundscapes with a distinctly narrative quality and an undeniable sense of place. Simultaneously noir and pastoral, gothic and modern Big Lazy conjures images of everything from big sky country to seedy back rooms with deftness and a cinematic clarity. Read more

In 2009, Ed Schrader started his solo career playing shows with just himself and a drum. He released a solo album, The Choir Inside, in which all the songs had just Schrader’s voice and a floor tom in them. After touring for a while on his own in 2010, Ed asked Devlin Rice to join him. Now, Ed plays drums and Devlin plays bass.

In 2012, Jazz Mind was released on Load Records and Upset the Rhythm. Joe Hemmerling from Tiny Mix Tapes called it “one of the oddest albums to land on my desk this year” and “a tasty little album.” The duo went on the “Because Home Sucks, and Everywhere Else Is the Same” a.k.a. “Jazz Mind Nation” tour with Lord Grunge, Psychedelic Horseshit, Wet Hair and Bubbly Mommy Gun in support ofJazz Mind.

After a hiatus of several years (with Big Lazy leader Stephen Ulrich, spending time as a composer for shows like HBO’s Bored to Death), Big Lazy is back with a new album, video, and tour.

Big Lazy’s fifth album, Don’t Cross Myrtle, dwells in the landscape of gritty yet elegant noir Americana. With sparse instrumentation, the trio creates evocative musical narratives with an undeniable sense of place and character. With a nod towards classic guitar instrumentals (Link Wray, Santo and Johnny) and a fiery performance style that swerves into improvisational jazz, the new album captures the essence of the trio’s legendary live shows.

Bobby Bare, Jr. could’ve phoned in a career. He could’ve exploited the fact that he’s the son of iconic Country Music Hall of Famer Bobby Bare, was born into Nashville’s Music Row elite, and counted artists like Shel Silverstein as close family friends and George Jones and Tammy Wynette as next door neighbors. Instead, Bobby blazed a path of unique songwriting craftsmanship with a voice that blows through you like an unyielding wind on the desolate prairie.Undefeated is BBJ’s first release since 2010 – and first back with Bloodshot since 2006’s The Longest Meow – and what he calls his “break-up record,” but the whole of it is much more involved: this isn’t escapism; it’s an emotional survival guide. Undefeated is ten songs of reality checks, clever wordplay, and daring arrangements, the aural companion to that buddy who pulls up a bar stool next to yours to help soak away your sorrows.
