Nordista Freeze – Slow It Down

NORDISTA FREEZE RELEASES NEW SONG SLOW IT DOWN

ALBUM BIG SKY PIPE DREAM OUT SEPTEMBER 10

ANNOUNCES ANNUAL SPACE PROM 4 HOSTED BY NORDISTA FREEZE AND FRIENDS AND PRESENTED BY LIGHNING 100 IN NASHVILLE TO BE HELD ON DECEMBER 3

LISTEN TO SLOW IT DOWN HERE

Nashville-based psych-pop singer-songwriter and showman extraordinaire Nordista Freeze has announced today’s premiere of a captivating new song Slow It Down which is available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Slow It Down is the third song from Nordista Freeze’s eagerly awaited new album, BIG SKY PIPE DREAM, out everywhere on Friday, September 10. Listen to Slow It Down and pre-order Big Sky Pipe Dream here.

The album is a sonic love letter to the warmth of 60’s pop marking a departure from his previous album Cosmic Haus, eschewing that album’s heavy conceptuality for a collection of 21st-century nuggets spanning the breezy, organ-driven Wysteria to the perfect pop of First Time, the latter hailed by NPR for being as good-natured as it is brightly infectious, an unseasonably pleasant spring Saturday in song form.

Slow It Down is country song for those who wear their heart on their sleeve. It’s about trying to take a step back from those moments of instant infatuation. Tracked to tape, we were able to really let the track wind down at the end. -Nordista Freeze

Nordista Freeze, known as the king of Nashville’s DIY scene is also pleased to announce this year’s Space Prom, an annual event that he organizes with other local Nashville talent. An homage to the past and a celebration of the present, Space Prom 4 will be presented by Nashville radio station giants Lightning 100. Those in attendance are encouraged to dress their cosmic best and dance the night away with a magical cover set featuring an all-star lineup featuring some of Nashville’s finest musicians. Past Space Proms have included Briston Maroney, Arlie, Dreamer Boy, Savannah Conley, and many more covering songs of the disco era. With the past three iterations of Space Prom selling out, Space Prom 4 promises to excite those in the Nashville community and beyond.

Having performed over 500 shows since 2016, Nordista Freeze is no stranger to the road and he will be backing BIG SKY PIPE DREAM with tour dates around the country. Additional dates will be announced – for updates and ticket information, please see the website.

Big Sean Hosts 3rd D.O.N. Weekend

Big Sean & Sean Anderson Foundation to Unveil Music Production Studio Inside Boys & Girls Clubs of SE Michigan During 3rd Annual D.O.N. Weekend

President Pro-Tem Mary Sheffield will add Occupy the Corner-Detroit to D.O.N. Weekend activities, will offer vaccines, expungement of records services, unemployment support and more.

Celebrity Kickball game of Team Big Sean vs. Team Sheffield to take place for youth, will feature Michigan’s Lieutenant Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, WJLB’s Dr Darrius, and surprise celebrity guests.

Sunday’s activities will focus on mental health and include Yoga on the Beach and Industry Club Fashion Show.

Multi-platinum artist, philanthropist and BGCSM Alumni Big Sean is excited to return to Detroit for his 3rd Annual Detroit’s On Now (D.O.N.) Weekend Saturday, August 28 – Sunday, August 29. The weekend is presented by the Sean Anderson Foundation (SAF) and hosted by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan (BGCSM) and City Council President Pro-Tem Mary Sheffield and will offer free activities for all ages. COVID-19 protocols will be enforced, and attendance is limited. 

This past year and a half has been challenging for everyone. I’m glad we can bring D.O.N. Weekend back and celebrate the people who make this city great, said Big Sean. With all the hurdles Detroit has faced during the pandemic, it’s so important to bring the city together in a positive way.

The new Reimagined Club is another strategic step to ensure Detroit youth have the tools and skills to become career, start-up and homeowner ready before leaving the Clubs at 18. The facility includes not only the new fully functional SAF content and production studio, but updated buildouts of the Ponyride co-working space for area entrepreneurs, computer lab, art gallery, 3D and laser printers, and a retail pop-up shop, similar to BGCSM’s Dauch Club on Tireman, which unveiled its Reimagined space with Big Sean in 2019. 

Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan is proud to be the anchor partner bringing DON Weekend to Detroit neighborhoods, said Shawn H. Wilson, president & CEO BGCSM. On behalf of the youth and families of Detroit, we want to thank Myra and Sean for their continued support and love for the city.

The special weekend celebrates the Detroit artists, creatives, entrepreneurs, families and long-standing institutions that are the backbone of the city. Along with the special unveiling of the SAF Studio, there will be a community block party and Occupy the Corner led by President Pro-Tem Mary Sheffield. Activities include live DJ, free food, live performances, COVID-19 vaccines, free haircuts and braiding, workforce one jobs, felony expungement, apprenticeship opportunities, carnival rides, gaming stations and a celebrity kickball game.

During these difficult times it’s more important than ever to stay consistent in our service to others. Combining forces with the Sean Anderson Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club of Southeastern for the D.O.N. Weekend and Occupy the Corner – Detroit collaboration is a perfect way to show the community, especially those in need, that there are people who care and resources available, exclaimed Detroit City Council President Pro Tempore Mary Sheffield. Additionally with the new reality resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s nice to help the community we serve and love to get a little slice of normalcy, interaction, and fun.

On Sunday, to continue strong focus on mental and physical wellness, BGCSM will be hosting Yoga on the Beach with Jamel Randall, owner of the Trap Yoga and Massage Studio Detroit and an Industry Club Fashion Show.

The weekend’s events were made possible by presenting sponsors Duo, Detroit Pistons, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Mercy Primary Care Center, Foot Locker, Fratarcangeli Wealth Management, The Mullick Foundation and TKG Business Management LLC.

Event tickets are limited due to COVID precautions but free to the public. BGCSM continues to be a safe space for youth, families and the community amid the current pandemic. Strict safety measures will be actively enforced during weekend activities.

About Big Sean 

Big Sean consistently asserts himself as an elite rapper and a vital voice for the culture, at large, since he emerged in 2011, with his debut album Finally Famous on Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music / Def Jam imprint. The album spun off consecutive top-charted pop/R&B/rap crossover smashes with My Last featuring Chris Brown (platinum), Marvin & Chardonnay featuring Kanye West and Roscoe Dash (platinum), and Dance (A$$) featuring Nicki Minaj (4x-platinum). Sean was a major collaborator on Kanye’s groundbreaking Cruel Summer album in 2012, and shared multi-platinum success with Kanye on the Grammy-nominated Mercy (also featuring Pusha T and 2 Chainz), and Clique (with Jay-Z). Sean’s Hall Of Fame album followed in 2013, including Guap (platinum) and Beware featuring Lil Wayne and Jhené Aiko (2x-platinum). Dark Sky Paradise (2015) was Sean’s first platinum and first album to debut #1 on Soundscan. It reigned on the charts with the #1 IDFWU featuring E-40 (6x-platinum), Blessings featuring Drake and Kanye West (3x-platinum), and One Man Can Change the World featuring Kanye West and John Legend (platinum). I Decided. (released Feb 2017, platinum) debuted at #1 on the momentum of the two pre-order instant great tracks that turned into smash singles, Bounce Back (5x-platinum with over 300 million streams globally), and Moves (2x-platinum). In 2020, he logged his third consecutive #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200 and fifth straight #1 entry on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart with the critically acclaimed Detroit 2.  

Beyond selling out worldwide tours, the Detroit native was recently appointed Creative Director of Innovation for the Detroit Pistons.

Attracting an audience of nearly 50 million across channels, Sean leverages his platform to give back. He runs his own 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Sean Anderson Foundation, which assists in the education, health, safety and well-being of school aged youth in underserved communities across the country.

This will be Tilian’s first tour since April 2021 release of his new album Factory Reset via Rise Records.

L’Freaq – Showgirl EP

L’FREAQ SHARES OF BATTLE CRY TITLE TRACK FROM UPCOMING EP SHOWGIRL OUT NOW

WATCH SHOWGIRL (LIVE & UNPLUGGED) HERE

WATCH LYRIC VIDEO HERE | LISTEN HERE

NEW DARK SYNTH-POP EP SHOWGIRL DUE OUT SEPTEMBER 23, 2021 VIA POSITION MUSIC

PRE-SAVE HERE

Fans of FKA Twigs and Banks would be remiss not to check out synth-pop enchantress L’Freaq – Billboard

L’FREAQ’s blend of gothic sensibilities and sultry soulfulness manages to continually hit the marks of bona de pop bangers. – NYLON

LA-based dark-synth pop artist, L’FREAQ, shares her live and unplugged version of her battle cry title track, Showgirl, from her sophomore EP, Showgirl, due out on September 23, 2021 via Position Music. She also recently shared a lyric video of the single. The word power stands boldly takes its place in front of the red curtain in the lyric video, and in the new live version — L’FREAQ’s voice alone is full of potent, passionate energy. Her raw performance, only accompanied by an acoustic guitar, proves every lyric’s realness in every note. On the new video, she says:

A big goal of mine with the singles from this EP was to show that they could sound great stripped back with just guitar and vocal. Sometimes I want to hear what something sounds like at its bare bones. I am grateful for the guitar stylings of Alejandro Amezquita and the directing and editing skills of Kevin Erickson, who also worked on the other two videos from this series.

Furthering the story from the debut single and music video for Gimmick, it’s clear that the upcoming EP is absolutely stacked with metaphor, all-star fashion, witchy babe vibes and an important message about the role media plays with children — especially young women. L’FREAQ is turning trauma into triumph, tapping into her heart and getting out of her head.

From puppet to powerhouse (just like in The Gimmick video), L’FREAQ breaks free of the monotony and shreds through the brainwashed stereotypes, as she literally shreds on a guitar. Gimmick showed L’FREAQ embodying themes of resiliency in a time of self-doubt, combining heart-pounding beats with passionate lyrics about believing in the power that everyone inherently owns and nobody else can take away. It also emphasizes L’FREAQ’s expansive robust range (Refinery29), which is also on full display in her recent live and unplugged version of Gimmick. This new track follows in those footsteps and takes it further into a deeper love of music, family and personal freedom.

Having recently performed for Backline’s Set Break live stream alongside Alanis Morissette, Tom Morello, Ben Folds, Sara Bareilles and more to raise funds and awareness for mental health services to be distributed to music industry for free, L’FREAQ has been a champion for her community. This song is another chapter of that consistent commitment to rise up and bring people with her.

L’FREAQ, continues to remain an open book of emotions for fans as she lays out her own experience with rejection and struggles with mental health. L’FREAQ belts, Got the courage to be vulnerable, got the guts to wear the crown, cause I dare to bare it all, I refuse to water down, as a testament of truthfulness and self-confidence even when it’s hard. Intimacy on this level allows L’FREAQ to push the storyline forward when it comes to believing in dreams as a reality, especially in the face of adversity. NYLON says, Look at L’FREAQ, draped in jewels and Cleopatra-esque eye makeup; then look a little harder. Behind the artifice, integrity abounds.

L’FREAQ is all about being inclusive, and she is outspoken when it comes to defending the underdog. As an ally of everyone on the spectrum of gender and sexuality, bullies, racists and sexists are not allowed in L’FREAQ’s kingdom. She also shows her love for those closest to her, by highlighting their work: namely her fashion photographer mom, Kelly Cappelli (as seen in Vogue), who does all the photography and artwork for L’FREAQ.

The new release follows L’FREAQ’s debut EP, Weird Awakenings, which played with themes of self-discovery, as well as her 2021 single Make Me Move. Armed with a full book of poetry, L’FREAQ took pieces of her work and composed songs with Mike Irish, who also produced and mixed the EP at Shifted Recording Studios. The EP was mastered by Stuart Hawkes at Metropolis London Music. They took their time in discovering a sound that felt genuine, one that explored all the raw places she had been longing to find. Together, they created a modern amalgamation of L’FREAQ’s dark, thoughtful poetry and her raw musical instincts, which inevitably alchemized into songs that are all at once aggressive, sensual and moving.

Having shared a stage with ABBA, India.Arie and Jakob Dylan, it’s important to note her live performance prowess, even without tour dates on the books (speaking of longing). L’FREAQ played a packed NYC performance debut at SoHo House, and channeled Britney Spears (especially during her ferocious Toxic cover), Nick Cave and Beats Antique vibes. The Deli Magazine later dubbed her NYC’s Favorite Emerging Artist. She’s also currently playing Amy Winehouse in Las Vegas show 27, and has been featured on the news several times for her iconic portrayal of Winehouse, who inspired her to sing in the first place, leaving audiences moved to tears from the experience.

With over 500k streams, 240K plays on YouTube, and songs featured in Riverdale, Playboy, Netflix’s Dating Around, Good Trouble, FBI, The Voice, City on a Hill and more, all born from her 5-song debut EP, it’s safe to say this follow-up EP is highly anticipated. Stay tuned for more visual components to follow, along with brand new singles. Showgirl is on the way.

  1. Gimmick

Some highlights of her career include performing privately for Muhammad Ali, sharing the stage with Jakob Dylan, and performing with Grammy-winning artist India.Arie.

L’FREAQ released her EP, Weird Awakenings, to critical acclaim in October 2018 and was voted one of NYLON’s 20 Best Releases. The EP has also garnered radio play and enthusiastic reviews in the US, UK, Europe, and Australia. Her second music video was premiered by Billboard while her most recent music video, New Skin, was released exclusively through NYLON which noted integrity abounds throughout.

Playboy recently used the title track Weird Awakenings in its groundbreaking video of actor Ezra Miller, while another song from the EP, I’ve Become a Thief has been featured in the trailer for the CW’s hit show Riverdale. L’FREAQ was recently voted NYC’s Favorite Emerging Artist in an open poll sponsored by The Deli Magazine, and can be seen this fall on her upcoming west coast tour in support of the Weird Awakenings EP.

Joyce Manor Play SummerStage

Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage Announces New Benefit Show

Joyce Manor with Turnover, Tigers Jaw, and Prince Daddy & The Hyena

September 23, 2021 in Central Park

Tickets On Sale Now

Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage is excited to announce Southern California-based punk rockers Joyce Manor will perform a ticketed benefit show in Central Park on Thursday, September 23, 2021 with Tigers Jaw, Turnover and Prince Daddy & The Hyena. Tickets are available for purchase ($25 advance / $35 day of) now at City Parks Foundation. Please note that proof of full vaccination must be shown at the door for entry to the show.

Songs From Northern Torrance, the latest album from acclaimed California-based four-piece Joyce Manor is available now. The 10-track compilation is a collection of early material that offers a glimpse into the band’s humble beginnings as an acoustic two-piece. Originally recorded between 2008-2010, many of the tracks have become fan favorites over the years previously existing in a live setting, or on rare CD-Rs sold by the band during their early days on the road.

I Won’t Care How You Remember Me, by the Scranton, Pennsylvania-based band Tigers Jaw, is an ode to living in the present. Tigers Jaw’s sixth albumߞand first for new label home Hopeless Records, finds members Ben Walsh (vocals/guitar), Brianna Collins (vocals/keyboards), Teddy Roberts (drums), and Colin Gorman (bass) at the height of their powers, fusing their collective skills with the synchronicity and energy the band honed over several years of non-stop touring. The result is a back-to-the-basement approach elevated by the unmistakable production of their longtime friend and collaborator Will Yip.

Turnover’s aptly titled new album, Altogether is the first collection the trio has written while living on opposite coasts. The record represents the group’s most collaborative and connected work to date, showcasing the intuitive, near-telepathic relationship frontman Austin Getz has developed over the years with his bandmates. Pop sensibilities inform the writing for the first time, with elements of funk, jazz, lounge, and disco mingling alongside the band’s trademark indie grit and punk energy.

Cosmic Thrill Seekers, the new record from Albany punk rock band Prince Daddy & the Hyena is an odyssey of epic punk, pop, indie, garage rock, and orchestral theatrics. It is a candid, acute documentation of front person Kory Gregory’s cyclical mental health states as told through three acts and 14 songs/chapters.

For the safety of all visitors, staff and artists, SummerStage in Central Park requires all guests to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination in order to enter the shows at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park. Those who are not able to be vaccinated because of a disability will be provided reasonable accommodation and will be required to wear masks at all times. Children under the age of 12 who are not able to receive the vaccination may accompany their fully vaccinated parent or guardian. All children between the ages of 2 and 12 will be asked to wear masks at all times if they are physically able. Venue capacity may be limited at staff discretion.

SummerStage will accept proof of final Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Moderna or WHO-approved vaccination using the CLEAR app, the NYS Excelsior Pass, NYC Covid Safe app, a physical/photo of CDC vaccination card, or EU digital pass, accompanied by a government-issued photo identification. Guests must show that their final dose of vaccine was received at least 14 days prior to the show date. In addition, masks are required upon entry to the venue and strongly encouraged for all guests for the duration of the performance, as is physical distance. Learn more about acceptable documentation, mask guidelines, and other safety protocols here.

All SummerStage staff will continue to wear masks at all times and enhanced cleaning protocols will remain in place throughout the venue In Central Park, while pre-packaged food and beverage purchases will remain contactless through QR code. We encourage all guests to arrive early in order to prevent lines and crowding at venue entrances. For free SummerStage performances, most shows will be available to livestream at Summerstage’s website, free of charge, if guests are unable to attend in person.

A full list of upcoming SummerStage shows and a digital brochure is available now.

Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage is a proud member of the NYS Outdoor Performing Arts Coalition and the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA).

Ronnie Wood Shares Two New Singles

RONNIE WOOD SHARES TRACKS SHAME, SHAME, SHAME + ROLL AND RHUMBA

FROM THE RONNIE WOOD BAND MR LUCK, A TRIBUTE TO JIMMY REED: LIVE AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL SEPTEMBER 17TH 2021

PRE-ORDER THE ALBUM HERE

The Ronnie Wood Band today released two more tracks from the second installment of the live album trilogy – Mr. Luck – A Tribute to Jimmy Reed: Live at the Royal Albert Hall.

Ronnie and friends cover Jimmy Reed’s track Shame, Shame, Shame, originally released in 1963. Keeping true to Reed’s sound in their interpretation, the listener can sense their adoration for the late musician. The Rolling Stones previously included this song in their early setlists, along with others by one of their key influences Jimmy Reed. The B-Side of the Stones February 1964 UK hit single Not Fade Away is thought to have been a pastiche of Shame, Shame, Shame. Paul Weller features on the track, an incredible musician who shot to fame with The Jam and is colloquially known as The Modfather for his influence on the 80s Mod Revival. With its relatable lyrics and lively rhythm, this song has easy listening energy and has been covered many times before by a plethora of musicians.

The Ronnie Wood band also offers their high-energy interpretation of Reed’s instrumental song Roll and Rhumba, a perfect one for any true blues fan. Without the distraction of lyrics, the instruments take center stage and Wood’s incredible musicality comes to the fore.

Released by BMG on 17th September 2021, Mr. Luck – A Tribute to Jimmy Reed: Live at the Royal Albert Hall’ is the 18-track album featuring The Ronnie Wood Band including Mick Taylor with incredible special guests, Bobby Womack, Mick Hucknall, and Paul Weller and pays tribute to one of Ronnie’s musical heroes and major influences, the Mississippi electric blues pioneer Jimmy Reed.

The album is recorded live on a memorable night at the Royal Albert Hall on November 1, 2013. With unique album artwork specially created by Ronnie, Mr. Luck will be available digitally, on CD, as a vinyl release, and as a beautiful limited-edition dual-tone smoky blue vinyl.

A ‘Tayle’ of Two Sidemen

When self-taught guitarist Eddie Taylor imparted his skills onto his friend Jimmy Reed, he surely couldn’t have imagined the effect this was to have on the Chicago blues scene. Backing up such luminaries as John Lee Hooker, he is best remembered for his work with his former student.

Sweet coincidence, then, that in 1974 another Taylor, Mick, would make way for Ronnie Wood in the Rolling Stones, paving the way for these two friends and celebrated guitarists to work on projects ever since. The culmination of this to date is Taylor’s place in The Ronnie Wood Band at the Royal Albert Hall for 2013’s Bluesfest, where they played the now-legendary set that would come to birth to this recording.

In regard to Mr. Luck, Ronnie comments: Jimmy Reed was one of the premier influences on the Rolling Stones and all the bands that love American blues from that era until the present day. It is my honor to have the opportunity to celebrate his life and legacy with this tribute.

This album marks the second iteration in a trilogy of special and personal albums by Wood and the band, celebrating Ronnie’s musical heroes. The first album, Mad Lad explored the work of Chuck Berry as an emotional commemoration after Berry’s passing just over two years ago. Ronnie toured with Berry and was a lifelong fan.

Morray × Polo G – Trenches (Remix)

MORRAY RELEASES HIS NEW REMIX OF TRENCHES FEATURING POLO G

WATCH TRENCHES (REMIX) FT. POLO G: HERE

BUY/STREAM TRENCHES (REMIX) FT. POLO G: HERE

‘Trenches’, from an album due next week titled Street Sermons, rides the minor chords and trap beats that often accompany antisocial boasts. But while ‘Trenches’ doesn’t ignore gangs, drugs or poverty, Morray also recognizes a community that holds families, neighbors and friends – The New York Times

Few crooning rappers have his polish, resonance, and soul. – SPIN

With only four songs on streaming platforms—all released in 2020—Fayetteville, North Carolina rapper Morray has already proven he’s a hitmaker. His debut single ‘Quicksand’ is undeniable, anchored by the type of hook you get from a Roddy Ricch or Rod Wave song and infused with storytelling and charisma to paint a picture even if you’re unfamiliar with the newcomer. – Pigeons & Planes 

Fresh Off His First-Ever Performance at Rolling Loud, the 2021 XXL Freshman Recruits a Kindred Spirit to Add a Verse to a Street Sermons Highlight

Morray’s emotional singing and empathetic lyrics make him an ideal avatar for those struggling in the streets, and an excellent role model for those looking to make it out. His song Trenches is an ode to people who think they are out of options, urging them to stay positive through the pain. Today, the Fayetteville, NC native shares Trenches (Remix), which adds a verse from Polo G, another street storyteller whose lyrics speak for the less fortunate. The new remix juxtaposes Morray’s gospel-influenced passion with Polo’s plaintive and conversational melodies, the younger rapper spinning a succinct 16 about his rise from tragedy to triumph: Member I was f*cked up, now my foreign in the hood parked/You can beat the system if you street and booksmart, intones Polo G.

Directed by Justice Silvera, the video follows the story of a man who works hard every day to put food on his family’s plates, resisting the clarion call of street life so he can be present for his wife and young daughter. Morray and Polo G provide the perspective of those who’ve escaped their past hardship, but their lyrics prove that men like the video’s protagonist deserve just as much respect as any rap star. Trenches (Remix) is the latest in a long line of quality videos from Morray, most recently the video for Mistakes, a highlight from his debut album Street Sermons.

Debuting at  #41 on the Billboard 200 and propelling Morray to #1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart, Street Sermons taps into the spiritual uplift and church-trained singing that makes Morray’s brand of hip-hop so unique, taking unflinching looks at the Fayetteville native’s youthful struggles and indiscretions and examining his motivations to succeed. Home to his breakout single Quicksand, which recently earned a GOLD certification from the RIAA and surpassed the 100 million view milestone on YouTube, the project contains universal truths about the tragedies and triumphs of growing up in the hood, filtered through Morray’s experience as a neighborhood kid made good. Complex ranked Street Sermons at #10 on their list of Best Albums of 2021 So Far.

Earlier this summer, Morray earned a position on the coveted XXL Freshman list for 2021. The honor is the latest in a long line of accolades, including one to watch designations from Complex, Billboard, SPIN, Pigeons & Planes, and many more. An engaging live performer, as evidenced by his recent appearance on JImmy Kimmel Live, Morray was highlighted by Rolling Stone as the Best Debut performer at last weekend’s Rolling Loud Festival in Miami.

With Street Sermons and his newfound position as a XXL Freshman, Morray culminates his meteoric rise and proves that he’s ready to build an artistic legacy and a nest egg for his wife and kids. For an artist with Morray’s talent, the sky’s the limit.

Ronnie Wood – Mr. Luck Live Album

RONNIE WOOD and the RONNIE WOOD BAND MR. LUCK, A TRIBUTE TO JIMMY REED LIVE AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL, OUT SEPTEMBER 17, 2021

Ronnie Wood and the Ronnie Wood Band return to the blues with the second installment of his live album trilogy – Mr. Luck – A Tribute to Jimmy Reed: Live at the Royal Albert Hall.

New release date for Mr. Luck – A Tribute to Jimmy Reed: Live at the Royal Albert Hall will now be released by BMG on September 17, 2021. The 18-track album features The Ronnie Wood Band including Mick Taylor with incredible special guests, Bobby Womack, Mick Hucknall, Paul Weller, and pays tribute to one of Ronnie’s musical heroes and major influences, the Mississippi electric blues pioneer Jimmy Reed.

The album is recorded live on a memorable night at the Royal Albert Hall on November 1, 2013. It features stunning tracks including Good Lover and Ghost of A Man. With unique album artwork specially created by Ronnie, Mr. Luck will be available digitally, on CD, as a vinyl release, and as a beautiful limited-edition dual-tone smoky blue vinyl.

A Tayle of Two Sidemen

When self-taught guitarist Eddie Taylor imparted his skills onto his friend Jimmy Reed, he surely couldn’t have imagined the effect this was to have on the Chicago blues scene. Backing up such luminaries as John Lee Hooker, he is best remembered for his work with his former student.

Sweet coincidence, then, that in 1974 another Taylor, Mick, would make way for Ronnie Wood in the Rolling Stones, paving the way for these two friends and celebrated guitarists to work on projects ever since. The culmination of this to date is Taylor’s place in The Ronnie Wood Band at the Royal Albert Hall for 2013’s Blues fest, where they played the now-legendary set that would come to birth to this recording.

In regard to Mr. Luck, Ronnie comments, Jimmy Reed was one of the premier influences on the Rolling Stones and all the bands that love American blues from that era until the present day. It is my honor to have the opportunity to celebrate his life and legacy with this tribute.

This album marks the second iteration in a trilogy of special and personal albums by Wood and the band, celebrating Ronnie’s musical heroes. The first album, Mad Lad explored the work of Chuck Berry as an emotional commemoration after Berry’s passing just over two years ago. Ronnie toured with Berry and was a lifelong fan.

Q×A with Grandmother Edna 

By: Emily Bunn

Showcasing over a dozen quilts and pillow covers, Grandmother Edna weaves stories of her own life and chronicles American history into her fabric fashioning. The complex interweaving of Edna’s own life fluidly connects with the United States’ grappling with enslavement, civil justice, and the quest for freedom. Depicting familial relations, as well as Edna’s encounters with Maya Angelou and Harry Belafonte, Grandmother Edna brings history to life with her quilting and storytelling. 360 Magazine spoke with the artist about the success of “Pillow Talk”, what inspires her to create art, and her upcoming CD release.

When did you begin creating fabric art?

Really, I mentally began in the 1950’s [while] sitting on a stairway watching my grandmother quilting. Then, maybe somewhere around the late 80’s, I decided to pick my poems up from midnight brown paper bags writings to hand sewn quilting.

What first got you interested in American history?

Being Black in the 50’s going with my grandmother to be the help/maid. And, in the 60’s, attending an all white school.

If you were to create fabric art to express our current moment in time, what would that design look like?

I have a new quilt on exhibit titled: “There Was A Time When The Universe Was FREE.”

What inspired you to start selling your quilted creations, pillow covers, and fabric art?

First of all, my quilts will never be for sale. My pillow covers sales will I hope help fund my free educational mobile classroom called “A Grandmother’s Pilgrimage, INC.” and my Grace Wisher Reparation Recovery Youth Scholarship Fund, LLC. 

What inspired the name “pillow talk” for your exhibition?

I travel through the country as an invisible soul, no one seems to listen to anything I had to say. I decided to create a nightcap to relax the busy minds of everyone–and just maybe they would have time to hear me.

What has the reaction to “pillow talk” been like?

Amazing, fresh. It’s a newness in the art world.

What has working with the The Franklin County Visitors Bureau and The African American Historical Association of Western Maryland been like?

Exciting, cool and [represents] that change is coming, History being over-hauled. Janet and Ron have been great to partner with. I hope this [exhibit] will … improve that culture sock everyone keep avoiding in this America.

Your fabric art often reflects stories from your own life. What milestones from your life have you felt were most important to include in your artwork?

It’s that front door entry thing for me. The lost traditions of my people.

Are you currently working on any exciting fabric art projects that you can reveal to 360 Magazine’s readers?

Yes, I have my new CD on release. I have a file cabinet packed with poems to be quilted. I have faith the money will come. It’s appears to be easy, but it’s very hard to get paid for a job very well done. This is all fun and relaxing for me. I tell everyone to Just sew your emotions. Thanks 360 Magazine for this new media.
