“The Game”
First New Music In Three Years OUT NOW
“Hawthorne birthed one of the best old-school sounds and freshest styles in the music game today.” – Complex
“Hawthorne keeps moving forward, adding new dimensions to his repertoire.” – Pitchfork
“Hawthorne has transformed himself from underground indie-soul curiosity to imminent star.” – NPR
“The new look of modern pop music.” – Huffington Post
 “His increasingly confident cries and grooves and songwriting aplomb are undeniably pro.” – Spin
Grammy-nominated R&B/soul artist Mayer Hawthorne is back! The critically-acclaimed musician has released his new single, “The Game,” marking his first new music in three years. The slow-grooving track, available via his newly launched label, Strange Sounds, and check out the first listen via Earmilk here:
“Life is so strange, and music is so magical,” shares Hawthorne. “Love and sex, pain and pleasure, reality and fantasy. What a trip. This one is definitely for my A1s who have been ridin' with me since day 1 – thank you for letting me do this thing that I love in my own strange way.”
The Los Angeles-based artist is not only a “Man About Town,” the name of his fourth, and most recent, full-length album, he’s also a man of many, many hats. The prolific writer, who’s racked up over 100 million combined plays on YouTube and Spotify, has penned every word from his extensive catalog. His songwriting pulls from his life and observations; his heartache and joy. Sometimes it’s groovy, other times he’s vulnerable and sincere, but it’s always timeless and soulful. Hawthorne also handles the lion’s share of production for his music and is a skilled musician, who’s played nearly every instrument on his acclaimed albums. 
Raised by hippie parents in Ann Arbor, Michigan, smack between the Hash Bash and the car factories, Mayer Hawthorne not only learned to play at a young age when his old man taught him the bass guitar at age five, he was surrounded by all the greats growing up. His father would play records in the house, instilling in him all the names of music’s legacy of all genres. He’s been digging in the crates ever since and you can hear the influences in his music. A touch of Shuggie Otis here, some Bob Marley there, a sprinkle of Sly Stone. He was also DJing in Michigan at the height of Detroit hip-hop – before Eminem blew up and when J Dilla was still alive. He was there, spinning records and making rap beats, and now he’s making soul records and rappers are sampling him. 
A true music aficionado, Mayer Hawthorne is not only influenced by the greats of the past in his original music, but continues to showcase his extensive musical knowledge through his DJ sets as well as his own Hawthorne Radio, a monthly playlist series available on his website and SoundCloud, where he has over 5 million followers. Mayer Hawthorne can be found showcasing his skills in Las Vegas for a monthly DJ set at the new NoMad Hotel for their Jemaa Pool Parties. His next appearance there is set for Saturday, July 6th. 
The release of “The Game” also marks the first time Mayer Hawthorne has issued new music simultaneously with music from his other project Tuxedo (his funk-R&B duo with producer Jake One), which will release their next album Tuxedo III on July 19th followed by a 21-date headlining tour throughout July and August.

Greg Antista and the Lonely Streets

New single available now

"Beat Down and Broken"

Playing on these stations: KVNV-WBJB-WFIV-WERU

Playing @ WBJB 'Songwriters on the Beach' 8/1






Album produced and engineered by Paul Miner whose credits include

New Found Glory, C.J. Ramone, Lisa Loeb, Adolescents,  Agnostic Front



Greg Antista and the Lonely Streets, a fast-rising Southern California rock group which gives voice to working class concerns in 3-minute jolts of perfect pop, have announced details of their forthcoming debut album Shake, Stomp and Stumble. The title will be issued on LP/CD/DL via Primal Beat Records on May 17. Pre-order HERE


Shake, Stomp and Stumblerecalls the sincerity of Johnny Cash and the country-infused, socially conscious anthems of Social Distortion. Its nine party-starting songs are anchored by indelible melodies, heartfelt vocals, powerful musicianship, and a steadfast sense of community. The album was produced and engineered by Paul Miner. 


Although frontman Greg Antista has known each of his band members for decades, the Lonely Streets have only been in existence for a year, having played their first gig on February 23, 2018 at Gallagher’s Pub in Huntington Beach. The lineup is comprised of Antista (lead vocals, songwriter, guitar), Jessica Kaczmarek (lead guitar, backing vocals, mandolin, piano), Warren Renfrow (bass), and Jorge E. Disguster (drums, backing vocals). The members’ previous group affiliations are extensive: Antista (Joyride, Foxy), Kaczmarek (The Busstop Hurricanes, Russell Scott & the Red Hots, Bourbon Jones), Renfrow (Cadillac Tramps, Manic Hispanic, Final Conflict, and tours with Adolescents and the Damned, among others), Disguster (Mr. Mirainga, Mink Daggers, CoDependents, Disguster). 


The joyous, colorful album cover art for Shake, Stomp and Stumble— which depicts a pair of rockabilly skeletons in full swing dancing abandon — was designed by Louis Perez III, the son of the famed Los Lobos songwriter/instrumentalist who shares the same name. The image and logo design evoke the rich Hispanic culture of Southern California, a heritage shared by three members of the Lonely Streets. “Even though the Lonely Streets don’t sing any songs in Spanish, it feels perfectly natural playing with bands that do,” says Antista. “The album art is a great visual expression of our music.”   


The goal with Shake, Stomp and Stumblewas to make its sound, style and stories quintessentially reflect the group’s home base of Fullerton in Orange County. The album provides a snapshot of those lucky enough to have survived the punk rock explosion of the 1980s. Drugs, alcohol, and tales of heart-breaking Latinas — with just a touch of nihilism sprinkled on top — aren’t the sum total of the experience, but they certainly mark the milestones and are relatable topics from which to draw inspiration. 


In 1979, Antista was classmates with members of then-fledgling punk acts The Adolescents, Agent Orange and Social Distortion at Troy High School. He especially became fast friends with Steve Soto (Adolescents, Agent Orange) with whom he would later form the band Joyride. The two remained close up until Soto’s death last year at the age of 54. In tribute, the Lonely Streets’ sole cover on the new LP is a sweet, melancholic take on Soto’s 2016 tune, “Forever.”


Elsewhere, the album focuses attention on a pair of relationships that have gone off the rails (“Goodnight Ramona,” “Carmelita”) and offers up a tribute to a fallen heroine from the hit AMC series Hell on Wheels(“They Killed Lily Bell”). Live favorite “U-Haul” finds a jilted lover showing up with the cops at her ex’s doorstep, while “Nasty Weather” suggests the best way to combat life’s ups and downs is by holding close the ones you love. Taking an approach similar to the Ramones or Buzzcocks, these mini-epics of angst and despair arrive with a sugarcoating — the sentiments are delivered in the form of concise pure pop nuggets, wrapped in singalong choruses and spry rhythms. The semi-comedic “U-Haul” wouldn’t feel out of place next to “The KKK Took My Baby Away” on the Ramones’ Pleasant Dreamsand Kaczmarek’s breathlessly careening guitar solo on “Carmelita” recalls the power pop heights of Blondie’s Parallel Lines. Kaczmarek is endorsed by Gretsch Guitars.  


The lyrics to the ferocious rocker “Shiver” provide the album with its title and “Finally Say Goodbye” is described by Antista as “a three-minute hip-shakin’ celebration of one door closing and another opening in this life.”


The album’s most poignant entry is “Beat Down and Broken,” a track Antista admits he wrote upon hitting a personal low point in his life, but which can easily be interpreted as a statement on his native SoCal’s long-standing homeless crisis: “Used up all my lifelines, there’s no one left to call / The ones who care, don’t care to see just how far you fall / The Thunderbird she’s come to rest in this Chevron parking lot, there goes the last friend that I’ve got / Beat down and broken on Beach Boulevard tonight; I haven’t slept and I’ve lost my way, there ain’t no help in sight.”  


As for the band name, Antista says “’Lonely’ is just one of those words that has always evoked emotion in me. I love Roy Orbison and when Springsteen wrote the line ‘Roy Orbison singing for the lonely’ (‘Thunder Road’) it made me feel like I had found a place where I belonged.”

"Matt Woods is no fluke, no one trick pony. Not even close. He’s a force of songwriting nature who can match his stories with inspired performances" – Saving Country Music

"Like Jason Isbell, another son of the South who bears a tenacious tone, Woods is in the vanguard of a country music’s feisty new generation" – No Depression


NATURAL DISASTERS will be released JUNE 28 on LONELY ONES RECORDS. Woods’ previous albums, HOW TO SURVIVE and WITH LOVE FROM BRUSHY MOUNTAIN garnered international critical acclaim for the native East Tennessee born songwriter.


After a lifetime in Knoxville, Tennessee, Matt Woods relocated to Nashville in 2016 focused on supporting and promoting his cut-to-the-bone brand of music.  It is that move, along with a volatile and ever uncertain world, that has informed and inspired his brand new album titled NATURAL DISASTERS, which releases Friday June 28 on Lonely Ones Records.


This fourth studio album was inspired and written during the rigorous touring schedule Matt maintained since the 2016 release of HOW TO SURVIVE often with his band, who also bear the name of Natural Disasters, playing nearly 500 shows across the US, UK and EU.


NATURAL DISASTERS is produced by Joey Kneiser (Glossary and Austin Lucas) and features Adam Meisterhans on electric guitars, Jeremy Mackinder on bass, PJ Schreiner on drums, and Mike Webb (Chris Stapleton, Poco) on keys. Backing harmonies provided by Lance Howell (Big Shoals).
