Paula Boggs Band

"Mistletoe & Shiny Guitars"


Paula Boggs was inspired to write “Mistletoe & Shiny Guitars” as part of her invitation to participate in The Acoustic Guitar Project ©, a global music platform — and concert series — that inspires musicians to write an original song and record it live in one week. She was the only one in Seattle who turned in a Christmas song.

After submitting her stripped-down solo version of “Mistletoe & Shiny Guitars” to The Acoustic Guitar Project ©, Boggs and her band fleshed out the tune with mandolin, banjo, accordion, bass, drums and percussion, along with gorgeous three-part vocal harmonies and, of course, sleigh bells. The six-piece soulgrass group — Boggs, Mark Chinen on guitar and banjo, Jarrett Mason on bass and vocals, Tor Dietrichson on percussion and vocals, Paul Matthew Moore on piano, accordion and vocals, and Jacob Evans on drums — recorded the track this past summer at Bear Creek Studio near Seattle, with Ryan Hadlock (Brandi Carlile, the Lumineers) producing, and special guest Darren Lucas on mandolin.

Mistletoe & Shiny Guitars” is a warm, uplifting take on the holiday spirit, inspired by a bus ride that Boggs took through Seattle during the holiday season last year.

About that bus ride, Boggs says, The sea of human activity that comes on and off, and what people are doing while they’re on a bus, was just very fascinating to me.”

JD McPherson




JD McPherson’s anticipated debut Christmas album, SOCKS, out now on New West Records. The record features ten original songs plus the first ever physical release of the track, “Twinkle (Little Christmas Lights).” Additionally, animated lyric videos for each song are available today—watch/share here.


Upcoming CBS Saturday Morning!

Upcoming NPR Weekend Edition!

Upcoming World Cafe performance!

Recent critical acclaim for SOCKS

“Retro rock ‘n’ roller JD McPherson pulls off a believable facsimile of a sound you might expect to hear on dusty old vinyl from the 1950s. Maybe you won’t mistake ‘Hey, Skinny Santa’ for an actual contemporary of ‘Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree’, but it seems like Socks… might scratch a similar itch once you wear out the actual oldies.” Stereogum

“…leave it to JD McPherson to emerge from left field with tidings of comfort and joy…on Socks, it does sound like we’re in good hands.”Paste

4 out of 5 stars

“JD McPherson bursts out of the gate with his debut Christmas offering…McPherson crafts these tunes with the same care he applies to his non-seasonal fare.”
“…if McPherson’s first wildly successful foray into swinging holiday cheer is any indication, this might be the start of something big.” American Songwriter

“There’s nothing like a few upbeat tunes to get you through hours of gift wrapping, and McPherson’s newly released singles, ‘Hey Skinny Santa!’ and ‘Socks’ from his upcoming album Socks, are two perfect options.” Popsugar

In support of the release, the band will embark on “SOCKS: A Rock ’n Roll Christmas Tour” this fall including upcoming shows in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, DC, Atlanta, Nashville and more. See below for full tour details.

The album was recorded during the warm spring months of 2018 at Alex The Great in Nashville, TN and produced by McPherson (vocals, guitar) and his band — comprised of Ray Jacildo (keys), Jimmy Sutton (upright bass), Jason Smay (drums) and Doug Corcoran (saxophone, guitar, keys). Also featured on the record are special guests Lucie Silvas, as a duet vocalist on “Claus Vs. Claus,” and The Giardinaires on “Socks,” “Holly, Carol, Candy & Joy,” and “Santa’s Got A Mean Machine.”

Of the recording, McPherson shares, “Over the past few months, I’ve told a few friends and interested parties that we’re releasing an album soon, and that it’s a Christmas album. You can immediately see the disappointment or bemusement on their faces. Then I have to explain to them how incredibly proud I am of it, and how I rate it as an actual album, as opposed to some kind of stop-gap or cash-grab. It’s eleven original songs. I think it’s some of my very best lyrical work. The band played beautifully. It was the most fun we’ve ever had in a studio together. After hearing the final mix, we marveled, and none of us can stop listening to it. First and foremost, it’s a rock and roll record (fans of our first record are going to flip out) and one that I believe at least a few people will listen to in the summertime, when they get a jones for feeling good. Scout’s honor.”

Hailing from Broken Arrow, OK, McPherson has recorded three studio albums and toured extensively at venues worldwide plus festival sets at Glastonbury, Bonnaroo and Newport Folk Festival among many others. Rolling Stone has described his music as “Timeless, forward-thinking rock & roll.” His most recent LP, Undivided Heart & Soul, was released in 2017 to widespread critical acclaim with NPR praising, “McPherson’s mastery of rock and soul fundamentals is beyond question, but his voice moves in wild ways on these songs, and the band exudes a new kind of risky energy.”

Kaia Kater

"New Colossus"


“Kater is rapt, inquisitive, straining for intimate, embodied understanding…we’re lucky that Kater’s shared her fully formed vision with us…” featured on  NPR Music’s First Listen

“a moving concept album, a carefully-constructed narrative arc full of moments of heightened conflict and graceful, hard-won resolution.” Rolling Stone Country

“a certain contender for folk album of the year” Folk Alley


A creative force in her own right, Kaia Kater rises to bold new heights of imagination and creative expression on her third album Grenades. With abundant poise and poetry, Kater composes an odyssey about personal identity, memory, and discovery in the wake of her father’s journey as a young political refugee. She draws upon her diverse musical influences in Quebec, the Caribbean, and Appalachia, and her bicultural experience as a second generation Grenadian-Canadian, to envision a new path for herself and her songs.

Featured on Rolling Stone’s 10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week and CBC Radio!

Watch her performance on CBC’s First Play Live and catch her on tour in the United States and Canada this winter!

Berlev’s Rock’n’Roll Hotel – You Can Make It!

Legendariske Søren Berlev og hans Berlev’s Rock’n’Roll Hotel har indspillet nyt album hos Flemming Rasmussen i hans ligeså legendariske Sweet Silence Studios. Da Sweet Silence i sin tid åbnede 7. april 1976 var Gasolin, det første orkester til at indspille i studiet. Nu er studiet, efter en årrække at have holdt til i Helsingør, flyttet tilbage til København og hvem var det første band til at indspille der, det var såmænd Søren Berlev med hans nye band Berlev's Rock'n'Roll Hotel. Ringen er sluttet!

Berlev’s Rock’n’Roll Hotel består af den energiske forsanger Esben Hegelund, på guitar har vi ekvilibristen Erik Winther, som bakkes op med en solid og levende bas fra bandets yngste medlem Søren Fjalland og så selvfølgelig med solide og tunge indspark fra Søren Berlev selv på trommer. Albummet er indspillet og produceret af Flemming Rasmussen i Sweet Silence.

Stilen er rock’n’roll, som bandnavnet også antyder, og er man til god gedigen rock musik, går man ikke galt i byen med den nye plade YOU CAN MAKE IT!. En plade, som har været et must for Søren Berlev, at få indspillet og udgivet. Sangene er skrevet af Søren Berlev selv med udgangspunkt i levet liv og i tråd med den traditionsrige rock musik, han altid har dyrket og hyldet.

Som Søren udtaler: ”Lige fra de tidlige år i Gasolin og frem til i dag har mit hjerte altid banket for rockmusikken, at jeg så ovenikøbet har været og stadig er så begunstiget, at kunne formidle det ud igennem mine trommer og nu også en ny håndfuld sange, er en stor gave og ære for mig.”

Pladen åbner med guitar intro på Don’t Fool Me for så at tage os med i biffen på Rock hymnen (Let the Good Times Roll) Let’s go to the Movies med sit karakteristiske guitar riff herefter tages vi ned i tempo og bevæges i en anden retning på Walking To The Sunset. Så er rock’n’roll festen sparket i gang og det fortsætter de næste 30 minutter med ørehængere som I Got The Rhythm, Push-Push og titelnummeret You Can Make It for så at runde pladen af med Troubles; en ægte rock ballade.

Berlev’s Rock’n’Roll Hotel formår med ’You Can Make It!’ at levere en god gang rock’n’roll med rødder i 70’ernes rockscene samtidigt med at støvlerne er solidt plantet i den gode melodiske og energiske rock anno 2018.

Berlev’s Rock’n’Roll Hotel ’You Can Make It!’ udgives 30. November 2018 på LP, CD & digitalt.

Brown & Gray

"It's Not Christmas"



To say the last year has been a rollercoaster for Brown & Gray would be something of an understatement. Since the release of their debut single, “Top Down” in late 2017 the Anglo-US duo have barely had time to draw breath. The single was initially championed as a Highway Find on the biggest national country music station in the US, Sirius XM’s The Highway, and has gone on to receive over 1,000 plays on the station as well as thousands more spins across the country music airwaves from a host of stations all over America. They were then featured in Rolling Stone’s Top 10 Country Artists to watch in 2018 which brought an agency deal with William Morris Endeavour in Nashville leading to over 30 festival shows including Stagecoach & Faster Horses amongst many others. Their success started to spread back across the Atlantic in the Spring when BBC Radio 2 added the record to their playlist for a month with the song reaching the Top 10 most played on the station.


Then a funny thing happened… a club remix package catapulted the song into the Top 10 of the UK Dance Charts and one of those mixes was picked up by Radio Disney and added to their main playlist, receiving more than 280 spins on the national station. At the same time, Sirius XM’s Hits 1 added the single to its playlist in July 2018 and has now garnered more than 320 plays on the biggest pop station in the country. The single now sits in the Top 40 airplay chart on Billboard some 15 months after its original release -10 millions streams, 40,000 iTunes downloads and millions of YouTube views later.


They now close out this stellar year with the release of the beautiful new single, “It’s Not Christmas” – a modern Christmas classic in the making. It tells the story of the aching longing to be with a loved one at that special time of year and is sure to make the snow – as well as the hardest of hearts – melt away.

About Sandra Lynn:
Since launching herself as an independent artist in 2014, singer and songwriter, Sandra Lynn, has established herself as one of country music’s sweetest rising voices. Lynn began singing at the age of seven and immediately gravitated toward such iconic artists as Trisha Yearwood and Dixie Chicks, as well as Shania Twain and Faith Hill. Since then, Lynn has spent much of her time in Music City with some of Nashville’s hottest songwriters and hit-makers, including Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus, Dave Brainard, Ross Copperman (who produced Lynn’s single, “Afterparty,” which was picked up by SiriusXM’s The Highway, along with her song “Bar-Hoppin”), Jeremy Spillman, Hall of Famer members Gary Burr and Tom Schuyler, Tia Sillers, Victoria Banks, among many others. Lynn has also made a name for herself on the live circuit, opening for Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Cole Swindell, Kenny Rogers, Jana Kramer, and Josh Thompson, as well as performing during CMA Fest at Milwaukee’s Summerfest, and playing local Nashville venues, including 3rd and Lindsley, The Wildhorse Saloon, and The Listening Room. In 2018, Lynn released her deeply emotional EP, FIGHT, produced and engineered by Grammy-winner, Ben Fowler which kicked off a three-part series of EPs documenting the push and pull of a couple trying to save their relationship.
