Back in December, we had the pleasure of ending our year in Nashville with Nikki Lane at her very last show of 2015… And there is nothing we like more than going to a show of one of our favorite artists and walking away a fan of the opening act!

In this case, it was Dallas, Texas’ Jonathan Tyler who kicked off the evening at City Winery with high energy and crafty songwriting! He was even joined by Nikki Lane with the song “To Love Is To Fly,” a single from his latest LP, “Holy Smokes.”

The record is Tyler’s second full-length, but first via Thirty Tigers, and first without his and his band’s original name “Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights,” which they had to change for legal reasons.

Catch this road warrior in just about every damn city in the U.S. in 2016 – See full tour dates HERE – and stream a few tracks from “Holy Smokes” below including a mini documentary of the the band on the road below.

“Holy Smokes” is available NOW… Pick up your copy HERE

Nikki Lane: First Taste from “Seein’ Double”

May 30, 2013 0 comments

We have been highly anticipating Nikki Lane‘s sophomore LP, “Seein’ Double,” even before she hit the studio last Fall with producer Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) at his Nashville recording studio, Easy Eye Sound Studio. Tracks from the album haven’t been released yet, but thanks to a 4-song live session with Daytrotter that dropped this Memorial Day, we finally get a glimpse of what to expect once “Seein’ Double” hits the shelves.

The session includes the LP’s titled track, the heavy-hearted song “Good Man,” and our personal favorite, “Right Time,” which you can stream for a limited time below. Check out the full Daytrotter session HERE and keep an ear out “Seein’ Double” later this year.

And while we are talking about highly-anticpated Nikki Lane records… When do you think we’ll hear some tunes from Nikki’s side project Precious Stones? Hopefully soon… Click HERE for details.

Nikki Lane: Last Minute Tuesday Show at JJ’s Bohemia!

February 19, 2013 0 comments

Nashville’s Nikki Lane is stopping by Chattanooga tonight (2/19) for a last minute show at JJ’s Bohemia! This will be our first time to hear new material from her upcoming Dan Auerbach produced LP, ‘Seein’ Double,’ that drops later on this year! She plays first, so come on out early! Show starts at 9pm!

And if you can stick around, catch yourself some Sam Doores & the Tumbleweeds who are about to launch a West Coast tour opening for Alabama Shakes next month in support of their latest album ‘Holy Cross Blues.’ A guaranteed great time for a Tuesday night! Come on out!.. But before you do, check out some key tracks from both below:

Here is an amateur video of Nikki w/ Dan Auerbach playing Nashville’s War Memorial Auditorium last month:

And of course, here is a couple live Sam Doores & the Tumbleweeds tracks with Riley Downing. Both videos were shot by Joshua Shoemaker and premiered on American Songwriter last week:


Meet the Precious Stones

Okay now, we’re not ones for helping start rumors, but if this one’s true… WE CAN’T WAIT!!!

While casually checking our Twitter this weekend we noticed a tweet from Nikki Lane that said “Meet the Precious Stones” and featured an Instagram photo shown above (and HERE) that includes (from the left): Ruby Rogers from The Black Belles, Jessica McFarland from Heavy Cream, Nikki Lane, and Makenzie Green from Birdcloud. A pretty impressive line-up if you asked us!

But yeah, why assume that these 4 ladies are forming a band just because of this post and the fact they’re all musicians, right? Especially with Nikki, who has been in the studio this month recording with The Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach at his Nashville Easy Eye Sound Studio… But then, we saw this! Taken from a practice session last night:

Hopefully this new Precious Stones project sees the light of day… because with a line-up that has his kind of talent, we’re in for something HUGE:



Wanda Jackson: ‘Tore Down’

September 13, 2012 0 comments

Queen of Rockabilly Wanda Jackson recently finished the follow-up to her Jack White produced full-length, ‘The Party Ain’t Over’ which will be called ‘Unfinished Business.’ The LP is set to drop October 9th via Sugar Hill Records and is produced by yet another start-studded musician turned producer, Justin Townes Earle!

So what do you do to promote such a highly anticipated album? You compliment the record’s first single, ‘Tore Down’ with a killer video that is slam-packed full of Nashville’s finnest up-and-coming artists, or course! The video features Erin Belle (model and ex-member of The Black Belles) as the lead roll who’s very distressed by her character’s ex-love interest Jonas Stein of Turbo Fruits… oh, and not to mention tons of cameos by people like Nikki Lane, Tristen, Ron Jeremy, comedian Chris Crofton (Alcohol Stuntband) and many many more! Keep an eye out and the pause button ready!

Check it out below and pre-order your copy of ‘Unfinished Business’ HERE:
