  • Melissa Ferrick

    Melissa Ferrick is back – with her first self-produced album since 2004, the truth is (out June 4 on MPress Records). An evolution in the sound she has developed over the course of her expansive career and catalog, the record is also a creative departure in its collaborative approach to the recording process for the multi-instrumentalist. The result is a raw, rootsy record set to a sweeping Americana/alt-country soundtrack that layers pedal steel guitars and background harmonies into some of the lushest, brightest songs of her 20-year career; special guests include fellow Berklee alum Paula Cole and Rose Polenzani.

  • Soule Monde

    Soule Monde is instrumental, organ-driven funk in its purest form. Erupting from the syncopated minds of power-drummer Russ Lawton and organ-wizard Ray Paczkowski, the duo take soul-jazz back to the deep end. Forged off a sound that originated with Booker T. and Jimmy Smith, yet highly influenced by the redeveloped grooves crafted by Medeski, Martin & Wood and The Beastie Boys, Soule Monde is the ideal union of swagger and raw talent. Over a decade of touring together as members of The Trey Anastasio Band has fervently cemented these two into an indestructible pocket, and bold improvisational leaps by either player are met by near-telepathic response from the other.

    Live and Local: GK and the Right of Way and The John Clavette Band

    GK and the Right of Way bring the straight forward drive of rock & roll and bring it to the country. The music is simple and catchy, yet contains worlds. There is a blue-collar feeling, a sense of endless cornfields and gentle rolling hills. But this isn't an empty or lonely space: GK and the Right of Way create a space that is full and wondrous, like looking at acres of farmlands simultaneously through the eyes of a sarcastic city boy and the contented farmer at the same time.

    Zeile August CD Release with Meghan Yates and The Reverie Machine

    Writing songs became a creative life style and a distinct calling after falling from The Literal Tree of Life in a New Orleans park over 20 years ago. Fractured bones led to teaching herself 3 chords and finding a way to talk about her also fractured heart. A trained artist, athlete, massage therapist and a self-imposed poet and rambler...teaching herself guitar and melding story brought mind, body, and spirit together. A few bands and 5 self-produced and published albums later...Zeile August pulls from her experience as a woman, forging spirit and dogma in lush psychedelic torch folk.
