Noah Kahan via Littky for Republic Records for use by 360 Magazine

Noah Kahan – Part of Me

Vermont singer and songwriter Noah Kahan returns with his new single entitled “Part of Me” out now via Republic Records. Listen HERE.

The introspective anthem reflects a natural progression for the artist. Noah’s signature storytelling and evocative lyrics shine over upbeat guitar and production by his frequent collaborator and Grammy Award-winning producer Joel Little (Taylor Swift, Lorde, Shawn Mendes, Jonas Brothers, Khalid). The momentum of the verses crashes right into the relatable hook as he confesses, “I don’t miss you. I miss the way you made me feel.” Similar to Ed Sheeran, Kahan writes engaging lyrics over a soothing beat, and allows for a relaxing listen.

Of the song, Noah says, “‘Part of Me’ is a song about someone looking back on an almost-romance and realizing that what felt like simply a passing moment of connection between two people was actually far more significant and represented a larger loneliness within. Drifting through life and avoiding feelings for anyone or anything is something I’m far too familiar with, and sometimes one experience with somebody can open somebody’s heart and force them to be vulnerable again. ‘Part of Me’ is about the realization that a seemingly insignificant moment can be far more important that you knew.”

Noah Kahan has quietly emerged as a small town musician with a combination of vivid songwriting and powerful performances (as well as a razor-sharp sense of humor on social media). He’s racked up over half-a-billion streams across his catalogue, picked up a Gold Certification for “Hurt Somebody” (feat. Julia Michaels) and performed on television shows such as The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers and TODAY. His 2020 Cape Elizabeth EP garnered praise from L’Officiel, Atwood Magazine, Variance Magazine, Idolator and more. Not to mention, he’s collaborated with a slew of artists, from Chelsea Cutler to mxmtoon to Quinn XCII to Gryffin. 

“Part of Me” heralds Noah Kahan’s anxiously awaited sophomore album, due for release later this year.

About Noah Kahan

Stepping out of his childhood home located on a 133-acre tree farm in Strafford, VT, which has a population of a little over 1,000, and onto stages worldwide, Noah Kahan introduced one side of himself. Since 2017, he has generated half-a-billion combined streams and views, garnered a Gold plaque for “Hurt Somebody” with Julia Michaels, and launched sold-out headline tours in North America, Europe and the UK. His 2019 full-length debut, Busyhead, attracted acclaim from Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, NYLON, Idolator, Ones To Watch and more. He performed on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Late Night With Seth Meyers and TODAY. As he breached radio airwaves and infiltrated popular playlists, he quietly penned songs at a feverish pace. Favoring storytelling, he unveiled another side of himself on 2020’s Cape Elizabeth EP [Republic Records] led by the single “A Troubled Mind.” Following widespread tastemaker praise, he capped off the year with “Pride” feat. mxmtoon and gears up for his sophomore album, set for release in 2021.

BUNT. – Unbreakable

Today, German duo BUNT. release their brand-new single entitled “Unbreakable” Featuring Grammy nominated songwriter, Clarence Coffee Jr. (Halsey, Maroon 5, Dua Lipa). The exuberant new track, which has been 5 years in the making, is Clarence Coffee Jr.’s first vocal feature and it is also the first release off of BUNT.’s upcoming EP due out later this year. “Unbreakable” Feat. Clarence Coffee Jr. is available now at all digital retail providers via Interscope Records.

Click HERE to listen.

BUNT. says about the track, “Unbreakable is a song we’ve been working on tirelessly for over 5 years now. This song is a foundational song for us. Coffee’s performance captures the brilliance we love about the Folk/Americana world. There’s so much character in his voice. The lyrics are so powerful. It even reminds us a little bit of a poem, the wording and in the way it is written. It’s about staying strong, no matter what situation you’re in—being unbreakable. After more than 50 different versions (and this is not just a random number), we feel like we have it.”

Clarence Coffee Jr. states, “Our fragility as human beings makes us vulnerable, yet our vulnerability can be our strength. Our brittle bones and body can be worn down and broken, but our spirit, our spirit is Unbreakable. That’s what this song means to me. The immortality of the human spirit.”

Ray LaMontagne – MONOVISION

Grammy Award winning artist Ray LaMontagne releases his eighth studio album MONOVISION today via RCA Records. The 10-track album sees Ray not only writing and producing the album once again but also includes added duties of engineering as well as performing all the instruments for the tracks. Already receiving praise from the critics, The Associated Press called the album, “stunningly refreshing,” while No Depression said MONOVISION is “one that best represents his artistic core,” and American Songwriter states, “Both LaMontagne’s craftsmanship in the composition of these songs and his easygoing, unaccompanied playing will come as comfort food to established followers who should welcome this most organic return to his roots.”  Internationally, MOJO’s 4 star review claimed MONOVISION is “further proof LaMontagne is among the finest singers of his generation” while Uncut Magazine gave the album 7 out of 10 rating.

Strong Enough ” is currently soaring up the AAA chart having already closed the panel. The track is the #1 greatest gainer at the format and just about to reach the Top 10. Ray LaMontagne has released 8 studio albums, 6 of which have reached Top 10 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart and Billboard’s Digital Albums chart.  Additionally, his 2010 album God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise won the Grammy for Best Folk Album and was nominated in the coveted Song of The Year category for “Beg Steal or Borrow.” Each release from his catalogue over the last 16 years carries its own character and feel. Having worked with producers Ethan Johns, Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys and Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Ray’s vast sonic catalogue has been called everything from “a perfect throwback to the lost art of the album-length format,” from Entertainment Weekly to “epic and magical,” from Rolling Stone and “gorgeous and ambitious,” from Esquire.  NPR’s All Things Considered said that Ray throughout the course of his career “has continued to push himself in different directions,” while People called Ray a “marvel of nature.”

NYC-Based Band “All Types of Kinds”

Mixing A Unique Blend of Influences From Rock to Blues, Folk, and Hip-Hop – The Bands Unique Multi-Genre Approach Lends A New Perspective to Alternative Music

 

In a city often oversaturated with musicians of every genre constantly performing and creating, it takes a special group of artists to truly stand out amongst the crowd that produce a truly unique sound, and New York City’s All Types of Kinds truly live up to the namesake.

All Types of Kinds (or ATOK) plays a wide variety of music ranging from rock to pop, folk, punk, funk, hip-hop, blues, jazz, and country – even sometimes all at once. The members come from diverse backgrounds that make for an amalgamation of musical textures and vibes. Their EP, “Love Songs (Or Songs For Your Ex)” debuted on Valentine’s Day 2018 and they are currently gearing for dates all over the country.

The band consist of Ray Rubio (Guitar), Billy Conahan (Guitar), Berk 0 (Percussion), and Rocco Stroker (Guitar) – all of whom have unique musical backgrounds.

With the goal of becoming a full-time, self-sufficient, self-produced band, able to tour and create their own audio and video products on a regular basis, they plan to soon follow up their debut with a sophomore effort in late 2018. Unlike other bands who strive for major-label greatness, ATOK shys away from fitting into an industry mold, and often scoff at the idea of being referred to as a ‘boy band’.

Believers in finding a way to share their music while remaining firmly in the driver’s seat, they continue to write, practice, and enjoy playing their music for any crowd that will have them. Making friends from all over the world by busking on the NYC streets has even allowed them to meet and collaborate with like-minded musicians.

These recent “Your Big Break” contest winners who’ve been praised for their “polished precision, sweet harmony, musicianship, artistry, versatility and originality in their smart lyrics” are ready for the big time. That time is now.

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

AMERICANA ICONS THE NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND CELEBRATE 50-YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH NEW CAREER RETROSPECTIVE, ANTHOLOGY, SUPERVISED BY FOUNDING MEMBER JEFF HANNA

2CD & DIGITAL COLLECTION AVAILABLE ON SEPTEMBER 29 VIA CAPITOL RECORDS NASHVILLE/UMe

Preorder Anthology here: http://UMe.lnk.to/NGDBAnthology

Continuing the celebration of the legendary Americana band’s 50 years of making music together, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s extraordinary career is encapsulated in the new retrospective two-disc set, Anthology, due September 29 via Capitol Nashville/UMe. Beginning with “Buy For Me The Rain,” their first track from their 1967 self-titled Capitol records debut, and culminating with “The Resurrection” from their most recent studio release, 2009’S Speed of Life, the all-encompassing collection is an extensive 39-track career overview, which includes illuminating liner notes from renowned journalist and author Holly Gleason. Hanna says, “We really wanted this collection to historically reflect our band’s timeline, but in addition to that, felt like it was important to include deeper cuts (“Fish Song,” “Cosmic Cowboy”) and instrumentals (“Randy Lynn Rag,” “Midnight at Woody Creek”), and fan favorites (“Ripplin’ Waters,” “Bayou Jubilee”). Anthology is available for preorder now: http://UMe.lnk.to/NGDBAnthology

Long before Americana music had a name, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, helped lead the charge, mixing elements of country, bluegrass, folk, mountain music, and rock & roll into a sound that celebrated the full range of American music. Formed in Long Beach, Calif. in 1966, the guys were traditionalists and trendsetters, performing songs that nodded to the past while still pushing toward the future.

From their ubiquitous 1970’s Top 10 hit of Jerry Jeff Walker’s “Mr. Bojangles,” to “An American Dream” – featuring Troubadour pal Linda Ronstadt – and “Make a Little Magic,” with Nicolette Larson, to their #1 country songs, 1984’s “Long Hard Road (Sharecropper’s Dream),” penned by Rodney Crowell and featuring Ricky Skaggs on fiddle and a young Jerry Douglas on dobro, to 1987’s platinum-certified “Fishin’ In The Dark” and many many more, Anthology collects all their best known songs in chronological order of release showcasing the band’s thrilling evolution and numerous highlights.

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Bandare perhaps best known for their landmark album, Will The Circle Be Unbroken, and this groundbreaking achievement and its sequels are ably represented throughout Anthology with a dozen cuts from the three volumes. Released in 1972, Volume 1 saw the band pairing with bluegrass and country legends of the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s such as Roy Acuff, “Mother” Maybelle Carter, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, Merle Travis, and Pete “Oswald” Kirby, for an inspired and influential 38-song double album that healed generational and cultural rifts by bringing the new and old guard together. Will The Circle Be Unbroken has been inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress as well as the GRAMMY®: Hall of Fame.

Twelve years after the original, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band revisited their unique experiment for Volume 2. With fellow folk-rock vets Chris Hillman and Roger McGuinn, they took on Bob Dylan’s “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere,” a song their guests had popularized in The Byrds. Produced by Randy Scruggs, some of the many collaborators this time included The Band’s Levon Helm, John Prine, John Denver, Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash and John Hiatt. The album won the Country Music Association’s “Album of the Year,” and three GRAMMYs®: Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group, Best Country Instrumental and Best Bluegrass Recording for “The Valley Road” with Bruce Hornsby. Again, merging moments, movements and cultures, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band captured a state of roots music long before it was called Americana.

The third volume, released in 2002, brought Dwight Yoakam, Willie Nelson, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Del McCoury and Taj Mahal into the fold and took home another GRAMM Y®. To hear Johnny Cash’s weathered dedication of “Tears in the Holsten River” to his mother-in-law Maybelle Carter and her sister Sara is to have the forebears made real, while the next generation appeared as sons Jaime Hanna and Jonathan McEuen brought the circle forward with “The Lowlands.” Alison Krauss joined the band for a sparkling take on Bob McDill’s “Catfish John,” a Johnny Russell hit that became a Jerry Garcia favorite.

For five decades, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band has remained one of the most iconic names in American music. With one foot planted in the traditions of country-folk and the other pointing toward something new and unexpected, the group continues to tour and release music, influencing multiple generations of audiences and artists along the way. Anthology is both a perfect primer for those who want to explore the band’s remarkable career and a lovingly compiled collection for the band’s fans that span generations and genres, keeping the circle ever going.
