This marks the first-ever event, beyond Bonnaroo, to utilize the 700-plus acre farm. On site adventures include Paranormal Cirque (an R-rated crazy yet fun fusion between circus, theatre, and cabaret in perfect harmony with the evolution of a show that brings you back to when we dream…and when we had nightmares and fantasies), the first annual EXIT 111 car show, Red Bull motocross demonstrations and a mega sports bar airing full sports coverage throughout the weekend, with more activities announced soon. For EXIT 111, festival promoters have teamed with Seether frontman Shaun Morgan‘s Rise Above charity.

These efforts will assist in raising funds for the charity’s life-saving suicide awareness efforts which started at Rise Above Festival.

A variety of ticketing options (GA, VIP, four-pack, military discounts, and payment plans), add-ons, camping and parking options, can be found here. Children under 10 are free with paid accompanied adult.

Guitarists Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction) and Billy Morrison (Billy Idol) have announced the second annual “ABOVE GROUND” benefit concert on Monday, September 16 at The Fonda Theatre in Hollywood.

View a trailer for the event here and read an interview with Navarro and Morrison below.

There will be unique stage sets and production for each album’s performance.

Q&A WITH DAVE NAVARRO AND BILLY MORRISON
ABOUT “ABOVE GROUND”
 
Last year’s inaugural Above Ground event was both a success musically and as a fundraiser for MusicCares, raising awareness and funds for the treatment of mental health. From your perspective, can you talk about how your goals were achieved that night?
 
BILLY: I think Dave and I really did manage to get people talking about mental health and raised some valid discussion with people during the press we did for that show.
 
DAVE: I believe our goals were achieved beyond what we had hoped. In addition to raising awareness about mental health issues, we raised a substantial amount of money that went directly to those who need it most. Personally, many people have approached me since to thank me for our efforts to help end the stigma of mental health issues. I have spoken openly about my own and I think it comforts some to know they are not alone. Put it this way, we are working toward ending a need for our own event in a way!
 
This year’s event continues your celebration of vinyl albums as an art form. How did The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and the self-titled debut album by the Stooges shape you musically?
 
BILLY: Oh, the Ziggy album was everything to me. A sexually ambiguous alien in a woman dress singing about space? What is there NOT to like about that?? Mick Ronson formed my whole playing–listening to his Les Paul when I was a kid was almost a spiritual experience. And the Stooges just personified raw power and emotion–the things that spoke to me the most when punk was happening.
 
DAVE: Both of these iconic albums helped shape the sound of Jane’s Addiction and were instrumental in terms of influences. As a young man I had been drawn to theatrical performances, Kiss and Elton John among them. When I got to Ziggy, it was as if I had found the perfect blend of theater, story and depth with a musical originality. As for Iggy, let’s just say that our punk rock roots were firmly in place when this album came out, pushing the boundaries of aggression and art and poetry, something that I see in Perry Farrell as well. It’s no wonder Iggy is one of his all-time favorites as well.
 
Why do you think both these albums continue to resonate with music audiences today? Why are they so pivotal?
 
BILLY: Great music is timeless. Especially important albums like these two. Kids growing up now respond to Iggy’s brutal power and Bowie’s sexual identities and soaring musical landscapes more than ever.
 
DAVE: I think they resonate because they are authentic. Authenticity lasts, lingers and influences. Both albums are crafted bodies of work. Track listing made a difference, what song started what side made a difference. These full-length albums to me are like fine art. Painstakingly created to stand the test of time. And they do!
 
Each of these albums is important on its own, but pairing them together, in one night, makes quite a statement. What inspired you to present both albums in one night?
 
BILLY: The Iggy and Ziggy thing has always worked. Even when they both did shows together back in the late 70’s/early eighties, the pairing of Iggy Pop and David Bowie worked. Bowie produced Iggy and they had this ongoing musical relationship that just seemed perfect and iconic to us.
 
DAVE: I think it’s no surprise that both Billy and I are heavily influenced by the Sacred Triangle of Rock and Roll: Bowie, Reed, Pop. Last year we did Velvet Underground as one of our choices, so it seems only fair that we complete the triangle!
 
As with last year’s event, the evening will be marked by an array of special guests TBA making appearances. Can you reflect about some of the special highlights from last year’s performance?
 
BILLY: Having Billy Idol perform The Velvet Underground’s “Heroin” is something that sent shivers down my spine. He nailed it and it was a totally unexpected moment. Also, having Marco Pirroni fly over from the UK to perform Adam And The Ants songs with us for the first time in many years was a definite highlight for both Dave and I.
 
One of my favorite moments was Macy Gray doing “Sunday Morning” by Velvet Underground. I recall being nervous about that one as Nico’s voice was so iconic… Who could pull it off? Luckily Macy joined us. Now, at rehearsals, Macy tends to just listen, learn, take in and get through so she knows what’s she’s doing. But we don’t know her process! SO…she had gotten through it a few times at rehearsal with us and we all felt it sounded decent. However, when Macy gets on stage, she completely changes and blossoms into the amazing singer and talent we have come to know and love. When she started singing live, I literally had shivers as she made it so special and her own. I was blown away.
 
Finally, and importantly, mental health is more than ever the big issue of the day, with devastating suicide rates on the rise. Can you talk about the important role that the music world can play as a consciousness-raiser?
 
BILLY: We all work in a business that gives us a platform. And it’s our duty to utilize that platform for good whenever we can. So the music world has so much influence and real power that so many people don’t use – Dave and I are just trying to use whatever platform we have to help make a small change and I encourage everyone to do the same. Together we can make a difference.
 
DAVE: I think one of the reasons music is such a great tool is that it can get at a feeling inside us that is uniquely our own, yet we can share it. Much like those who suffer from mental health issues, they are all uniquely personal but can be shared for a much broader conversation. I am proud to stand as a survivor of trauma and depression and drug addiction. I feel that anyone who chooses to keep pushing forward through the tough time and asks for help should be proud they have done so. We are warriors who choose to not let this disease kill us, yet we have trauma all throughout the body physically, which can be harnessed into addiction and self-destructive behavior. I am here to say, stand up and be proud that you choose life, no matter what it takes to stay in the game…you are NOT alone. Here are a handful of musicians who understand YOU and want to help YOU because WE GET IT. We understand you and consider you part of our family on the road to recovery.

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.
 
About JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS:
Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the hard- rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, she’s had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You,” and “Crimson and Clover.” Her independent record label, Blackheart Records, was founded in 1980 after she was rejected by no less than 23 labels. Blackheart is one of the longest running indie labels and continues to give voice to new bands. Jett has acted in movies and television, including 1987’s Light Of Day, and in a Tony-nominated Broadway musical, The Rocky Horror Show. She has appeared on such acclaimed television shows as Oprah (the last season) and Law and Order.
 
As a producer, she has overseen albums by Bikini Kill, Circus Lupus, as well as the Germs’ LA punk masterpiece, GI.
 
Her music has become a permanent force in mainstream culture. A version of “I Hate Myself for Loving You” was reworked for NBC’s Sunday Night Football theme song, “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night”, and was performed for 9 seasons by the likes of Pink, Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood. Her music is heard in countless films and TV shows including Easy – A, Kick Ass, The Runaways, Shrek, Baby Mama, and many more.
 
Since co-founding the Runaways, the pioneering all-girl punk quintet, at age 15, Jett’s determination and drive have kept her in the public eye. Jett was able to see her story told in The Runaways, the film based on (lead singer of The Runaways) Cherie Currie’s book Neon Angel starring Kristen Stewart as Jett, and her fellow A-lister Dakota Fanning as Currie. Jett was close to the project: She served as an executive producer. Jett and the Blackhearts released their latest record, ‘Unvarnished,’ in 2013 and continue touring the globe to throngs of adoring fans.
 
Joan Jett has spent her lifetime breaking barriers and challenging expectations – this is, after all, a woman who is both a spokesperson for PETA and a devoted supporter of the US Military. She’s fought hard for all of her historic accomplishments, yet she remains humble and appreciative.
 
“I’ve had a blessed career,” she says. “I consider myself so lucky to have been able to do things my own way.”

RICKIE LEE JONES Releases Video For “Nagasaki,” From Her ‘Kicks’ Album Out Today

DATE:        JUNE 7, 2019
 
FROM:       MARCEE RONDAN/MITCH SCHNEIDER
 
 
RICKIE LEE JONES
RELEASES VIDEO FOR
“NAGASAKI,”
THE SECOND TRACK FROM HER
‘KICKS’ ALBUM
OUT TODAY (JUNE 7)
 
U.S. TOUR DATES IN PROGRESS NOW
 

With her new album KICKS out today (June 7), singer, songwriter and musician RICKIE LEE JONES has released a video for “Nagasaki,” the album’s second single. For her version of the song–which was first performed by the Ipana Troubadours in 1928 and was most famously recorded by the Benny Goodman Quartet in 1952–JONES gives the track a traditional jazz offering of tight three-part harmonies.
 

For the clip, RICKIE LEE teamed with award-winning animator/film maker Ben Clarkson to create an anime clip with cameos from Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un plus the superhero on the KICKS album cover who defeats the monsters and saves the world. Watch the “Nagasaki” video here.

 
KICKS spans two decades (50s-70s) of pop, rock and jazz,presenting her unique and sophisticated interpretations of these songs. JONES is that rare musician who has transcended the singer/songwriter mantle by incorporating different radio genres from the get-go and she continues that tradition on the forthcoming album. It is fitting that one of the American treasures of songwriters should be comfortable with this diverse collection of the great songwriters of the 20th century. KICKS was created entirely in New Orleans,using local musicians,mixers and studios. Produced by RICKIE LEE JONES with her band-mate,vibraphonist Mike Dillionit features 10 songs of a highly infectious nature.
 
Here’s some early critical feedback for KICKS:
 
The album, “seems to sit more snugly alongside Jones’ own material,” says GLIDE MAGAZINE in their review. “Rarely has a singer-songwriter inhabited other people’s work so completely, but Jones proves herself, again, as one of the most inventive and imaginative interpreters operating today – it’s to her credit that she can, as ever, make 70s radio mainstays make perfect sense alongside jazz jewels from the 40s. These supposedly disparate threads are tied up in an Americana wash of guitars, vibes, and pedal steel…Kicks succeeds in introducing fresh perspectives to songs that are decades old, some of them well-worn, some of them hidden gems…Alongside co-producer and vibraphonist Mike Dillion, she has crafted an album that feels of a piece: warm, welcoming, and infectious, sitting comfortably in her catalog.”
 
COACHELLA VALLEY WEEKLY says, “Even when she’s covering songs by Rock N’ Roll stalwarts, she manages to subvert expectations. Tackling tracks by America, Steve Miller Band and Elton John…Rickie Lee doesn’t really interpret other people’s songs, she re-interprets, recalibrates and reconfigures music that speaks to her, rendering it a deeply felt and personal experience. That’s her gift. This album mirrors the musical education she began with her father, effortlessly blending genres and blurring boundaries. 40 years on, she remains a sui generis talent, who isn’t afraid to color outside the lines.”
 
 
 
The album cover, by artist Peregrine Honigis a super-hero woman in boxing gloves. Sound like anyone we know? RICKIE LEE JONES, superhero, with a super weapon smile! “In times like these,”Miss Jones smiles,a smile can be subversive. Here is Rickie Lee‘s musical smile.”
 

Miss Jones’ own label, OSOD (other side of desire), released KICKS with Thirty Tigers distributing. The album is available here, along with a variety of official KICKS merchandise including t-shirts, posters, totes and other items. In addition, fans can pre-order the album via traditional sites: All Retail; Spotify; iTunes, Apple and Amazon; all pre-orders receive the “Lonely People” instant grat track with the purchase of the pre-release of the album.

 
The KICKS track listing is as follows:

  1. “Bad Company” (Bad Company, 1974)
  2. “My Fathers Gun” (Elton John, 1970)
  3. “Lonely People” (America, 1974)
  4. “Houston” (Sanford Clark, 1964; made famous by Dean Martin, 1965)
  5. “You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Loves You” (Russ Morgan, 1944; made famous by Dean Martin, 1960/1964)
  6. “Nagasaki” (Ipana Troubadours, 1928; most famous by Benny Goodman Quartet, 1952)
  7. “Mack The Knife” (Louis Armstrong, 1956; made famous by Bobby Darin, 1958)
  8. “Quicksilver Girl” (Steve Miller Band, 1968)
  9. “End Of The World” (Skeeter Davis, 1962)
  10. “Cry” (Ruth Casey, 1951; made famous by Johnnie Ray and the Four Lads, 1951)

“As a long-standing fan of the band, following Yes on the road this year and last on their momentous 50th tour was a dream come true,” says Gosling. “Thank you to Steve Howe, Alan White and the band, Roger Dean, Tony Kaye and Trevor Horn for their co-operation in making this film.”

 

 
Roger Dean–whose masterful artwork has graced classic album covers and posters, most prominently by YES and Asia–is a special guest on The Royal Affair Tour.” Headlined by prog rock pioneers and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees YES, the trek launches Wednesday, June 12 in Bethlehem, PA and wraps Sunday, July 28 in Saratoga, CA.

SRO Is The New MSO, Reflecting New Schneider/Rondan Partnership

DATE:            JUNE 5, 2019
 
FROM:           MITCH SCHNEIDER

 

MSO PR TO NOW BE KNOWN AS SRO PR
TO REFLECT THE PROMOTION OF MARCEE RONDAN TO PARTNER
AT THE LONG-RUNNING PUBLICITY COMPANY
WITH OFFICES IN LOS ANGELES AND NASHVILLE
 
 
 
 What a difference a letter makes.
 
As it gets ready to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary in early 2020, the MITCH SCHNEIDER ORGANIZATION (MSO PR) becomes the SCHNEIDER/RONDAN ORGANIZATION (SRO PR) today, June 5, to reflect the promotion of Marcee Rondan from Executive Vice President to Partner, it was announced by the company’s founder, Mitch Schneider. The company will transition all its properties (website, social media platforms, email, etc.) in the coming weeks to SRO PR.
 
“Marcee has been a guiding light at MSO since the company’s inception in 1995, and I’m truly excited to officially welcome her as Partner,” says Schneider. “She’s been involved in key decisions about the company and its clients as well as overseeing employee policies that have strengthened us. This is all on top of Marcee being a terrific publicist who builds dynamic campaigns for our clients and expertly manages their best interests through the unpredictable scenarios that emerge in this 24/7 business. Her promotion opens a whole new chapter for the company.”
 
“So very proud to call Mitch ‘partner,’” Rondan says. “He’s been an inspiration to me and our entire staff, past and present, for years and I look forward to working alongside him as we continue to grow our business. It’s been an amazing experience so far and I’m happy to take on this role in an office in my beloved San Fernando Valley, where I grew up.”
 
Marcee will continue to work with America, Brian Setzer Orchestra, The Cult, Godsmack, Heart, Ozzy Osbourne, Rickie Lee Jones, the Stray Cats, and the Zappa Family Trust, along with such festivals as Made In America (Philadelphia), Ohana (Dana Point, CA) and Exit 111 (Manchester, TN).
 
Rondan first began working with Schneider at Levine/Schneider Public Relations as an intern in 1989 after graduating from the University of California at Irvine. At MSO, she became a Vice President in 1997, a Senior Vice President in 2000 and Executive Vice President in 2014.
 
SRO PR maintains offices in Los Angeles and Nashville, the latter of which is headed by Lyndie Wenner. With its iconic and cutting-edge artist roster–and its representation of internationally heralded music festivals, tours, events and companies–the company has the eyes and ears of America’s exuberant music fans. It has been hailed as a “bonafide taste maker” (L.A. Weekly, 2010) and by Music Connection (May 2019) as “one of the world’s premier public relations firms. The MSO roster is eclectic and encompassing. It includes various styles and genres, superstars, musical legends, festivals, award shows and emerging artists. That diversity enables MSO to obtain coverage in multiple outlets and mediums, from underground to mainstream.”

RICKIE LEE JONES Debuts “Lonely People” Video; First Track From Upcoming ‘Kicks’ Album Due June 7

RICKIE LEE JONES

UPCOMING ‘KICKS’ ALBUM

Rickie Lee Jones - Lonely People
Rickie Lee Jones – Lonely People

 

With the first single from her forthcoming album KICKS already spinning at radio, RICKIE LEE JONES has now released a video for her unique interpretation of the 1970s America hit “Lonely People.” The singer, songwriter and musician directed the video–filmed in her adopted hometown of New Orleans–in which she presents various incarnations of herself in an array of costumes amid multiple backdrops.
 
“The video for ‘Lonely People’ reflects the humor and strength of a singer who entered the fun house through the 1979 superstar door and came out 40 years later with a far less serious view of Rickie Lee,” she explains.
 
With the clip, she says, everyone needs to “make peace with the past incarnations of yourself. Don’t live ashamed of who you were…celebrate who you are. That is me now. That is Kicks. The subversive smile in a time when anger is the mantra of the masses.”
 

RICKIE LEE JONES on the set of the video for Lonely People.”
 
KICKS, due out June 7, album spans two decades (50s-70s) of pop, rock and jazz, presenting her unique and sophisticated interpretations of these songs. JONES’ is that rare musician who has transcended the singer/songwriter mantle by incorporating different radio genres from the get-go and she continues that tradition on the forthcoming album. It is fitting that one of the American treasures of songwriters should be comfortable with this diverse collection of the great songwriters of the 20th century.
 
In an interview last week with BILLBOARDwhich noted that “Rickie Lee Jones is a master of taking apart popular songs to see how they tick”–RICKIE LEE talked about the inception of the album. “Those threads exist in my mind side-by-side,’ she tells Billboard about the unlikely connection between genres and decades on Kicks. ‘I heard those songs at [the same] time in my life, and they’re all planted in the same garden.'”
 
At radio, “Lonely People” is already garnering cross-country airplay with adds at KFMG–Des Moines, IA; KNBA–Anchorage, AK; KRCL–Salt Lake City, UT; KSUT–Durango, CO; KTBG–Kansas City, MO; WHRV–Norfolk, VA; WKZE–Red Hook NY; WUKY–Lexington, KY; WYCE–Grand Rapids, MI; WSGE–Dallas, NC ( Charlotte); WCLX–Burlington, VT; and WMVY–Martha’s Vineyard, MA; and spins from KCSN–Los Angeles, CA; KRCB–Santa Rosa, CA; KRCL–Salt Lake City, UT; KUSH–Cushing, OK; KVMR–Nevada City CA; KXCI–Tucson, AZ; WDST–Woodstock NY; WFPK–Louisville, KY; WHRV–Norfolk, VA; WOUB–Athens, OH; WPYA–Birmingham, AL; WQKL–Ann Arbor, MI; WUKY–Lexington KY; WYEP–Pittsburgh, PA; and Americana Boogie Radio (internet station).
 
KICKS was created entirely in New Orleans, using local musicians, mixers and studios. Produced by RICKIE LEE JONES with her band-mate, vibraphonist Mike Dillion, it features 10 songs of a highly infectious nature. Check out “Nagasaki,” her traditional jazz offering of tight three-part harmonies, and “Bad Company,” where JONES cuts loose on electric guitar.
 
The album cover, by artist Peregrine Honigis a super-hero woman in boxing gloves. Sound like anyone we know? RICKIE LEE JONES, superhero, with a super weapon smile! “In times like these, “Miss Jones smiles,a smile can be subversive. Here is Rickie Lee‘s musical smile.”
 
Miss Jones’ own label, OSOD (other side of desire), will release KICKS with Thirty Tigers distributing. A pre-order of the self-released album is available here, along with a variety of official KICKS merchandise including t-shirts, posters, totes and other items. In addition, fans can pre-order the album via traditional sites: All Retail; Spotify; iTunes, Apple and Amazon; all pre-orders receive the “Lonely People” instant grat track with the purchase of the pre-release of the album.

About Rise Above
 
“I started this cause as a tribute to anyone who has lost someone. If Rise Above does something to help one person reconsider the tragic choice of suicide, then it will be the greatest success of my career.”
–Shaun Morgan
Shaun Morgan, founder and frontman of the multi-platinum selling rock band Seether, founded Rise Above in 2012 in honor of his brother who died by suicide. The Rise Above Festival which ran for 5 years in Bangor, ME was the largest suicide prevention event in the world. Morgan was honored in 2016 with the “Artistic Expression” Award from the National Council for Behavioral Health at the Awards of Excellence in Las Vegas.

About SAVE
SAVE is the leading national nonprofit suicide prevention organization working to prevent suicide through public awareness, education and training. They develop best-practice-endorsed materials used around the world and are the only national suicide prevention organization to have developed an evidence-based program for schools. They also work with suicide survivors left behind after a suicide. Led by Executive Director Dr. Dan Reidenberg, SAVE has been certified by Best Charities of America as meeting the highest standards of accountability and responsibility for nonprofits. Of the 1 million charities in the country, only 5% meet the standards and less than 2,000 have been awarded the certification seal. Shaun Morgan’s dear brother Eugene lost his life to suicide in 2007. This cause means the world to him.
