It’s admirable when a musician gets back to his roots, there’s no questioning that. But in a lot of ways, it’s even more admirable when an artist has no need to do that – having never lost touch with those roots in the first place. Jason Boland falls squarely into the latter category, having spent the better part of the last 15 years entrenching himself in the so-called “red dirt” of his native state of Oklahoma and adopted home in Texas and while spreading his musical branches to cover a remarkable amount of territory.
“I’ve always thought it was important to keep one foot in tradition and the other pointed in the direction you want to go,” says Boland. “I didn’t invent the G chord, so I’m standing on the shoulders of the giants that did, and on the shoulders of some great songwriters that have come before me. I’m using an old stencil, but adding my own colors.”
On their new studio album, Dark And Dirty Mile, Boland and his compatriots use a wide array of hues to illustrate 11 songs of rejection and redemption, dark clouds and silver linings, all assembled in the rough-hewn manner that’s earned him an ever-growing fan base – a following that’s snapped up more than a half-million records over the past decade and change

Micky and the Motorcars are heading back to the studio to record a new full length album. Since their last album, Raise My Glass (2011), the band has undergone some lineup changes with Joe, Dustin, and Bobby earning their spots in the band. After a year of touring relentlessly around the United States and Germany the Motorcars decided that now is the best time to head into the studio to record their new studio album. Micky and Gary have been writing and “road-testing” their new songs for the past year and are ecstatic to get them recorded. On top of all the good news we brought on our brother Willy Braun, from Reckless Kelly, to produce the album which is a first in Motorcar history! (a bit crazy we know)

Micky Braun – acoustic guitar, lead vocals
Gary Braun (lead & harmony vocals, guitars, harmonica
Dustin Schaefer – lead guitar
Joe Fladger – bass

The Black Lillies “Hard To Please” Tour at Rockbar Scottsdale!

Rockbar Inc. presents
with special guests

7pm Doors $10presale/$13dos 21+
ViP Tables available TEXT 480-331-9190

The Black Lillies are a band for the ages: rich, rootsy tunes performed with as much heart as technical virtuosity. If you ask them, theyll tell you they play Tennessee music combining strains of swampy Memphis soul and blues with Nashvilles classic country and East Tennessees traditional Appalachian style while Rolling Stone describes it as country music with a soul-rock infusion, supported by bandleader Cruz Contreras’ smart songwriting and tight musicianship. Either way, its music that stirs your soul, touches your heart and makes you want to dance.

On October 2, the band released their fourth album Hard to Please (Attack Monkey/Thirty Tigers), which American Songwriter sums up as a soulful mix of upbeat Americana and tender ballads, while Vanity Fair notes that their sound continues to cross generations and musical genres country, folk, blues and add in a touch of the Dead, for good measure. Its no surprise that Hard to Please was an immediate critical and radio success the bar had already been set high by their previous releases. 2013s Runaway Freeway Blues conquered the Billboard Top 200 country charts and was selected for dozens of Best of lists, catching the attention of NPR, CMT, Wall Street Journal, Guitar World, Garden & Gun and more for what Entertainment Weekly calls strong roots-folk songwriting, sweet harmonies, and charismatic indie spirit.

Their raucous live show has earned them festival slots and enthralled audiences at venues ranging from Bonnaroo and Stagecoach to the legendary Grand Ole Opry, where they hold the distinction of having performed more often than any other independent band. The music is breakneck, brazen and beautiful; sultry soul, honky-tonk heartache, winding jams and flat-out rocknroll, tied together with soaring harmonies that bring back echoes of practically every great male/female duo of the past several decades [;the sound is]; one for the ages, and, one suspects, ages yet to come, according to Glide Magazine.

Make no mistake: when you see The Black Lillies live, you definitely wont be hard to please.
