JASON EADY

On his last two albums, Jason Eady earned major acclaim for his ahead-of-the-curve take on classic country, a bold departure from his earlier excursions into blues-infused Americana. Now with his sixth album, the Mississippi-bred singer/guitarist merges his distinct sensibilities into a stripped-down, roots-oriented sound that starkly showcases the gritty elegance of his songwriting.

JOHNZO WEST

Johnzo West is an Indiana born songwriter and guitarist based out of Los Angeles, California. West is also the guitarist for Eric Burdon & The Animals and former L.A. based psych rock band Fortress Social Club.

“West’s voice reminds me of a slightly more polished version of Phosphorescent, think Tom Petty riffs with Eric Clapton level solos.” – No Country For New Nashville

West has shared the stage with Eric Burdon, Dickey Betts of The Allman Brothers Band, Toots and the Maytals, Jackie Greene, The Cadillac Three, The Stone Foxes and many others.

After graduating from Indiana University, West relocated to Los Angeles, CA, and recorded his first album, ‘Bring On The Burdon’, a collection of mostly stripped down acoustic tunes and home recordings, followed by the full length ‘Glory’ and ‘The Cause and the Cure’ EP. In 2017 West released three new singles, ‘Givin Myself Away’, ‘City Nights’ and ‘The Drop’.

In 2016, West’s band, The Wayward Souls, began backing Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Eric Burdon, as The Animals. West continues to record tour worldwide with Burdon.

West has also collaborated with Miley Cyrus contributing their cover of ‘You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go’ to Amnesty International’s compilation record, ‘Chimes of Freedom: A Tribute To Bob Dylan’. The duo also released a cover of ‘Look What They’ve Done To My Song, Ma’. West and Cyrus have performed live together on The Ellen Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live and at numerous charity events.

THE BREVET | HENRY CHADWICK | ALVORD BROTHERS

When the feedback-laden, distorted-as-all-hell guitar intro to The Brevet’s new single, “Locked & Loaded,” grinds to a crawl and lead singer Aric Chase Damm’s gritty vocals kick in, there’s a moment where—if you’ve got an ounce of soul in your body—your foot starts tapping almost involuntarily. The “woah-oh-oh” hook that hits next is the kind you feel in your bones, the eminently danceable kind that makes you want to shoot straight up, kick your chair back, and move. Every second “Locked & Loaded” begs for movement, an earworm that simply refuses to quit. And making the tune all the more impressive, in a testament to the group’s raw creativity and artistic ability, is the fact that The Brevet engineered and produced the track at the group’s recording space in Westminster, CA—where they’d also recorded their first two albums.

Henry Chadwick – Henry draws influences as much from music of the past (The Beatles, The kinks, T-Rex, Nirvana, David Bowie etc.,) as from as from current artists who keep pushing forward stylistically and sonically. Henry makes catchy, thoughtful and usually energetic music with a unique perspective, edge and charm, and is often compared to The Strokes and Mac DeMarco.

WESTERN CENTURIES

When did country music start to sound the same? The first generation of country artists borrowed from everything around them: Appalachian stringband music, Texas fiddle traditions, cowboy songs, Delta blues. In an era of unprecedented access to our musical pasts, shouldn’t country music be even more diverse than it was in its infancy? Honky-tonk supergroup Western Centuries, back with a new album in 2018, surely understands this. They aren’t bound by any dictum to write songs in a modern country, or even a retro country style; instead they’re taking their own personal influences as three very different songwriters and fusing it into a sound that moves beyond the constraints of country. Part of the reason they can make music with this range of influences is because of their roots in city life. Both Cahalen Morrison and Ethan Lawton, two of the three principal songwriters, live in Seattle’s diverse South end, and the third songwriter, Jim Miller, spends most of his time in and around New York City. The urban landscape is rarely mentioned in country music, but it makes for a refreshing sound that draws as easily from modern R&B as it does George Jones. It helps too that the album was recorded and co-produced by acclaimed musician and Grammy-winning producer Joel Savoy in Eunice, Louisiana, where local Cajun and Creole artists have always been adept at marrying old country sounds with R&B and rock n roll.

GOOD RIDDANCE |SWINGIN' UTTERS | DON'T CARE | DYING FOR IT

Good Riddance is a hardcore punk band from Santa Cruz, California which was formed in the early 1990s. The band grew out of California’s vibrant surfing and skateboarding culture and was influenced by such bands as Black Flag, The Adolescents, TSOL and Bad Religion as well as East Coast bands like Sick Of It All and the Cro Mags.

For thirty years, few bands have relished getting their hands dirty as much as the Swingin’ Utters. Formed in 1988, the early lineup was comprised of Johnny Bonnel, guitarist Darius Koski, bassist Kevin Wickersham, and drummer Greg McEntee. In celebration of the band’s three decades, as well as their continued forward momentum, on December 8, Fat Wreck Chords is proud to announce Drowning In The Sea, Rising With The Sun, a 33-song best-of compilation that serves as a testament to Utters’ peerless punk rock attack.

MATTHEW FOLWER & THE PRDAO SISTERS

Florida-based artist, Matthew Fowler, is the perfect storm of all the essential singer-songwriter elements: a flawlessly raw yet organic voice, intricate melodies, compelling musicianship, and an overwhelmingly rich and rootsy sound. He released his homegrown debut album, “Beginning”, comprising of songs written between the ages 14 and 19 years old. The record, which was recorded live in his kitchen back home in Orlando, was first singled out by American Songwriter Magazine who hailed: “Fowler shows the same mastery of earnest, strummy, songcraft as established artists like Damien Rice and Ben Howard.”

SMOOTH HOUND SMITH

Smooth Hound Smith is a foot stompin’ American roots duo comprised of “one-man-band” Zack Smith (guitars/vocals/foot drums/harmonicas/banjo) and Caitlin Doyle (vocals/percussion). Established in 2012, and based in East Nashville, TN, they record and perform a varied and unique style of folky, garage-infused rhythm & blues. Using primal foot percussion, complex, fuzzed-out, finger-picked guitar patterns, warbled harmonicas, tasty harmonies and A LOT of tambourine, they are able to create something rugged and visceral- a modern interpretation of early blues, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll music that harkens back to the traditions of hazy front porch folk songs as well as raucous back-alley juke joints.

GRINGO STAR | AUTOGRAMM | GRINGO

Gringo Star are an Indie Garage Pop band from Atlanta, Georgia, founded by brothers Pete and Nicholas Furgiuele, and joined in 2016 by Josh Longino (featured on the new album) and Mario Colangelo. Their 5th album “Back to the City” is coming out Aug 24, 2018 via Nevado Music, an L.A. based label (Deap Valley, Eternal Summers, Yukon Blonde). The album was produced, written, recorded and mixed at Studio 234 in Atlanta by the brothers. Gringo Star are insouciant explorers, tossing the paddles overboard and drifting on the currents of their lackadaisical curiosity across a rippling sonic ocean, out to the far edges of rock & roll. Shots pulsing from a vintage Leslie speaker, their guitars, keys and vocals create the psychoactive ingredients of their echo-slathered, doo-wop-indebted indie gems; psychedelic garage bangers, gritty R&B shuffles and spaghetti western weirdness. Taking cues from Santo & Johnny, The Stooges, Ritchie Valens, Marc Bolan, The Kinks, Sam Cooke, they’re all here, their electric ghosts reaching across time, tapping Gringo Star on the shoulder like the crossroads devil to Robert Johnson, bestowing secrets, passing torches.

Their eclectic sound has its roots in classic rock and country, with a model indie feel. Kane (vocals/guitar/drums) Rachel (vocals/guitar/ukulele) Ken (lap steel guitar/mandolin/vocals)
