THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA‘s “Christmas Rocks!

BRIAN SETZER‘s legendary career has led him through four critically acclaimed and successful phases from the Stray Cats, to solo albums, the Rockabilly Riot and The Brian Setzer Orchestra. The Brian Setzer Orchestra show seamlessly encompasses music from all these phases. He is a 3-time Grammy Award-winner, and in 2014, SETZER received the distinct honor of being asked by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. to donate a replica of his original 1959 Gretsch 6120 “Stray Cat” guitar, joining an elite collection of iconic treasures at the museum.

For the past four years (2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018), THE BRIAN SETZERORCHESTRA has had a strong presence across SiriusXM channels during the holidays and has partnered with the audio entertainment company for subscriber-only concerts in New York City and Los Angeles, which have aired on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country and Holly channels.

ABOUT BRIAN SETZER:
Iconic guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and 3-time Grammy award-winner BRIAN SETZER is a “Musician’s Musician” credited with continually taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles. Setzer is widely credited for taking two forgotten genres, rockabilly and swing, adding his own blend of gunpowder and rockin style, and completely reinventing and single-handedly resurrecting them in the process. Along the way, he has scored chart-topping hits, sold 13 million records and received the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award throughout his decorated career as founder/leader of the Stray Cats, his 19-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra, and as a solo artist. He is consistently cited as one of the world’s greatest living guitarists, and has a best-selling, extensive line of elite Gretsch signature model guitars bearing his name. BRIAN appeared in the 1987 film, La Bamba, portraying rockabilly pioneer Eddie Cochran. In 2002, BRIAN earned the privilege of being one of the few musicians to be animated in an episode of “The Simpsons.” That same year, SETZER was personally requested to induct Chet Atkins into the 17th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. SETZER had the honor of being invited in 2006 to perform at the White House for the President of the United States. In 2014, SETZER received the distinct honor of being asked by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. to donate a replica of his original 1959 Gretsch 6120 “Stray Cat” guitar, joining an elite collection of iconic treasures at the museum.

JAMEY JOHNSON SURPRISES COLT FORD AT GRAND OLE OPRY
WITH RIAA CERTIFIED GOLD PLAQUE
FOR ‘RIDE THROUGH THE COUNTRY’ ALBUM RELEASED IN 2008
 

Pictured, from left: Jamey Johnson, Colt Ford

 

 
When COLT FORD took the stage last night (9/17/19) at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, little did he know the surprise that awaited him as he exited the stage after his performance and standing ovation. Country star Jamey Johnson presented FORD with an RIAA gold certified plaque marking sales of more than 500,000 units of Ride Through The Country, FORD‘s debut album released in 2008 featuring Johnson on the track, “Cold Beer.”
 
The RIAA certification comes just days before FORD releases his seventh album, We The People, Volume 1, this Friday, September 20 (Average Joes Entertainment). Ford‘s new video and radio single, “Slow Ride” feat./Mitchell Tenpenny, debuted on CMT Music and CMT.com this week.
 
 
ABOUT COLT FORD:
Colt Ford consistently blazes his own trail. By doing so, the Georgia singer, songwriter, rapper, musician, performer, and co-founder and co-owner of Average Joes Entertainment keeps up pace as country’s preeminent independent maverick. Selling over 3 million albums, attracting millions of followers on social media and hitting 1 billion-plus streams, the country artist’s dynamic discography spans collaborations with everyone from Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, and Jermaine Dupri to members of No Doubt, Lit, and Lady Antebellum. Additionally, he co-wrote Jason Aldean’s #1 hit “Dirt Road Anthem” and Brantley Gilbert’s #1 hit “Country Must Be Country Wide” as a behind-the-scenes force in the studio. Moreover, Ford’s solo tradition of genre-blurring continued on “Love Hope Faith” in 2017 by way of cuts such as “Reload” [feat. Taylor Ray Holbrook]. On “We The People Volume 1,” Ford continues to evolve his artistry and-as only he can-amp things up even further.

THE DOCUMENTARY FILM ‘TOMMY EMMANUEL-THE ENDLESS ROAD’
TO HAVE ITS U.S. PREMIERE AT THE 50TH NASHVILLE FILM FESTIVAL
OCTOBER 5 WITH TOMMY EMMANUEL AND THE FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE
 
ESTEEMED GUITARIST AND COMPOSER TO TOUR
THROUGHOUT 2019 AND INTO 2020
 
 
“If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn’t get any better than Tommy.”
Jason Isbell
 
“Tommy is one of the most musically welcoming artists I know!”
Jorma Kaukonen (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Airplane)
 
TOMMY EMMANUEL is the esteemed Grammy-nominated guitarist, composer, prolific recording artist and performer whose must-see shows all over the world combine virtuosity with his engaging storytelling wit. The fascinating story behind the musician and the man is now told in the documentary film Tommy Emmanuel-The Endless Road, directed by Jeremy Dylan and produced by Jaime Lewis.
 
The documentary will have its U.S. premiere at the 50th Nashville Film Festival which takes place October 3-12. The film’s premiere is set for Saturday October 5 at 3:00 PM with TOMMY and the filmmakers in attendance, followed by a Q&A. An encore screening of the film will be on Monday October 7 at 1:00 PM.   It will be screening at Regal Hollywood Theaters, 719 Thompson Lane – Nashville, TN 37204. Tickets are available here. Watch a trailer for the film here.
 
This past July, Tommy Emmanuel-The Endless Road had its world premiere at Australia‘s Melbourne Film Festival where it won Best Music Documentary.” Says TOMMY: “It’s very appropriate that the film has its US debut in Nashville because Nashville has been a big part of my life, not just musically but I have so many friends here and so many influences, it’s a great city.”
 
“The journey of Tommy Emmanuel is a quintessentially Nashville story,” says director Jeremy Dylan. “Tommy’s relationship with mentor, surrogate father and ‘Mayor of Music City’ Chet Atkins is an emotional backbone of the film, Nashville is the refuge that turns into a home as Tommy’s marriage crumbles and he is forced rebuild his life and the climax of the film as a scorching performance at the Mother Church of Country Music, the Ryman.” 
 
Tommy Emmanuel-The Endless Road is the story of guitar icon TOMMY EMMANUEL, whose journey takes him from Australia’s youngest guitar prodigy to the world’s most acclaimed acoustic guitarist. Revelations about the father he idolized send TOMMY into a decades-long battle with addiction, which threatens to derail his family and career, even as he drives himself to become one of the world’s most compelling performers.

ABOUT TOMMY EMMANUEL:
TOMMY EMMANUEL has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. At the age of six, he was touring regional Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins. Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year from Nashville to Sydney to London. He’s piled up numerous accolades, including two Grammy Award nominationstwo ARIA Awards from the Australian Recording Industry Association (the Aussie equivalent of the Recording Academy) and repeated honors in the Guitar Player magazine reader’s poll including a cover story for their August 2017 issue. A noted fingerstyle guitarist, EMMANUEL frequently threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. His talents, which translate in any language, carry him to the far corners of the globe, but EMMANUEL never plays the same show twice, and he improvises big chunks of every date. That leaves him open to those technical imperfections, though they also provide some of the humanity to an other-worldly talent.

RANK TOP 5 MOST ‘SAVAGE’ TRACKS ON “THE SILVER SCREAM” & THE HORROR MOVIES THAT INSPIRED THEM

TEASE IT THEMED SINGLE “IT IS THE END” MUSIC VIDEO LAUNCH WITH RED BALLOON HUNT ACROSS U.S.
 
 
(Photographer: Paul Hebert; Edited by Mike Cortada)
 
“Out on the cringe of society’s where we lie, because we’re lethal liabilities till we die,” chants ICE NINE KILLS fearless front man SPENCER CHARNAS in the explosively catchy single “Savages,” taken from their groundbreaking 2018 effort THE SILVER SCREAM via Fearless Records. In merely a few short weeks, “Savages” has rapidly climbed to #25 on the Active Rock radio charts. The band has unveiled a striking lyric video featuring live concert footage interspersed with iconic images from the movie it’s based on,The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, overlaid with chill-inducing graphics. Watch it here or streaming below.

 

 

In honor of the new single, horror enthusiast CHARNAS curated a list of the Top 5 most ‘savage’ tracks featured on THE SILVER SCREAM and the equally savage horror films that each were inspired by. Read his list below while streaming the tracks on each listener’s preferred digital platform: http://found.ee/thesilverscream.
 
 
ICE NINE KILL’s 5 MOST ‘SAVAGE’ SONGS
(& THE MOVIES THAT INSPIRED THEM)

– by Spencer Charnas
 
 
1. “THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE” / A Nightmare On Elm Street
“Our album kicks off with a sinister tribute to the 1984 Wes Craven classic, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. The entire premise of a killer hunting you in your dreams is so genius because no matter what you do, no one can escape eventually falling asleep– so therefore your death at the hand (or glove, rather) of Mr. Krueger is imminent. Charles Bernstein’s almost sci-fi like score sets the perfect tone for this film, and we wanted to pay homage to that in our own INK fashion.”
 
2. “THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY / Friday the 13th
“Welcome to Camp Crystal Lake! Home of the most twisted mother/son murder duo this side of Hell. On this track we bring the world of Jason Voorhees, his mother and those poor doomed counselors into the theatrical metal stylings of Ice Nine Kills. Complete with nods to Harry Manfredini’s iconic score, a guest spot from our gifted pianist friend Joe Occhiuti, our own take on important character dialogue from the movie and a campfire sing along that turns from rapidly from a  “kumbaya” vibe to a machete slicing breakdown, this song should remind all you sex crazed teens out there to stay the hell out of Jason’s woods!”
 
3. “STABBING IN THE DARK” / Halloween
“There’s been a million slasher imitators that were released in the wake of John Carpenter’s 1978 holy grail of horror film, Halloween, but almost none have ever come close to matching the sheer terror of Michael Myers and that expressionless white mask. This is our love letter to the night HE came home.
Lyrically we take you through Michael’s journey of escaping from Smith’s Grove Sanitarium all the way through his famous rampage in Haddonfield, IL. The movie, and hopefully our ode to it, will confirm that no one in fact can kill the boogeyman.”
 
 4. “SAVAGES” / The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
“They say everything is bigger in Texas and this is exactly the mentality we had when penning our tribute to Tobe Hooper’s seminal and brutal 1974 cult classic, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The song never lets up the entire way through just like the deranged cannibal family that it’s based on. If the film as well as the song should teach you one thing, it’s don’t f*ck with the locals… especially in Texas.”
 
5. “MERRY AXE-MAS” / Silent Night, Deadly Night
In 1984 a small budget killer Santa slasher film, with an unbelievably clever marketing campaign and premise, was unleashed on the public to a heavy backlash from PTA groups across the country. Banned almost immediately upon its release, it’s infamous reputation only fueled the hype and granted this film the eventual cult status it so deserved. Directed by Charles E. Sellier Jr. and penned by Michael Hickey, we wanted to make this song as sleazy, funny and violent as the movie that it was inspired by. FA-LA-LA-LA-LA…Feliz Navi-dead!

Fans across several major U.S. cities were sent on a scavenger hunt over the past week, as ICE NINE KILLS revealed locations on social media with directions to ‘Find the red balloon,’ a reference to the classic Stephen King novel-turned-movie IT, which inspired their song, “IT Is The End.” The first five fans at each location walked away with a branded red balloon and origami paper boat, a poster of the band and were also able to see a sneak peek of the song’s upcoming music video, set to air in the coming week! Check out some of the fans below:

The HU Kick Off First-Ever North American Tour with Nine Sold-Out Shows

DT: SEPTEMBER 12, 2019
 
FR: KELLY WALSH/MITCH SCHNEIDER

 

 
 
THE HU
KICK OFF FIRST-EVER NORTH AMERICAN TOUR WITH NINE SOLD-OUT SHOWS ALREADY
DEBUT ALBUM THE GEREG OUT WORLDWIDE
TOMORROW, SEPTEMBER 13

 

 

THE HU triumphantly kicked off their debut three-month headlining tour across North America with the first of nine sold-out shows last night in Minneapolis, thrilling audiences with their one-of-a-kind style of ‘hunnu rock’–a combination of American heavy rock played with traditional Mongolian instruments and guttural throat singing that is featured on their debut album, THE GEREG, out tomorrow, Friday, September 13 via Eleven Seven Music.

The Mongolian-based rock sensation will continue to make their mark as newly appointed Cultural Envoy of Mongolia representatives as they perform at several of the fall’s biggest music festivals-Riot Fest (Chicago), Aftershock Festival (Sacramento) and Las Rageous (Las Vegas)-alongside sold-out dates in major cities including: Montreal, Quebec City, Washington, D.C., Denver, Los Angeles, Columbus, Indianapolis and San Francisco.
 
THE HU have achieved viral online success with their captivating and cinematic videos for the album’s singles “Wolf Totem,” “Yuve Yuve Yu” and “The Great Chinggis Khaan” which combined have logged over 40 million views to date and were filmed at historic locations in their home country.

Pre-order THE GEREG here: https://thehu.ffm.to/thegereg
 
 
Read some early critical praise for THE HU:
 

 

“[The HU] are not just taking elements from Western music… Instead, they’re using some of these elements and making their own authentic music. So it’s not rock music performed by Mongolians. It’s Mongolian rock music.”- January 5, 2019

 

 
“You know when you find an artist you’re so enraptured and excited about that you want to tell anyone and everyone who’ll listen about them? That’s how I feel right now about The HU.” – June 7, 2019
 
“Hunnu rock has undoubtedly captured a global audience, spreading their transcultural sound across borders.” – May 27, 2019
 
“The Hu is the first act since Bad Wolves in February 2018 to top Hard Rock Digital Song Sales with its first charting song.” – April 18, 2019

“The HU wound up with nine cinematic songs that seamlessly meld their influences, often highlighting the areas where the two overlap… Given the global platform they earned via YouTube, The HU have an entire nation rooting for them with The Gereg.” – August 5, 2019

ABOUT THE HU:
Gala: Lead Throat Singer and Morin Khuur
Enkush: Lead Morin Khuur and Throat Singer
Jaya: Jaw Harp, Tsuur, Flute, and Throat Singer
Temka: Tovshuur
 
THE HU stands for the Mongolian root word for human being, inspiring their original style of music that they call “Hunnu Rock.” The band pull Inspiration from the Hunnu, an ancient Mongolian empire better known as The Huns in western culture. Their music is deeply embedded with their ancient culture, even integrating old Mongolian war cries and poetry into their lyrics. The group was founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia by their producer Dashka, along with band members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush. Together they create rock music with traditional Mongolian instrumentation such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp), guttural throat singing built around the pillars of heavy rock: distorted guitars, bombastic drums, and aggressive rhythms. All four members have earned Bachelor’s or higher degrees in classical music and have gained several years of touring experience throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim.

About HEART:
When Ann and Nancy Wilson formed HEART, the idea of two women leading a rock band was still groundbreaking. From the moment 1976‘s Dreamboat Annie was released, they became stars. With hits like “Magic Man,” “Crazy On You,” “Barracuda,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” and “These Dreams,” the band became one of the biggest hit-makers in the seventies and eighties selling more than 35 million records. In 2012, their memoir Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock & Roll became a New York Times bestseller, and in 2013 the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
