Apr-01-17 08:00 PM Chevonne and The Fuzz with 21 Kings, Break Out Day, Thrilldriver
New Jersey natives Chevonne and The Fuzz are bringing their powerhouse rock sound to the masses with their debut LP Chevonne and The Fuzz. The 12-track album features larger-than-life guitar riffs (and dueling guitarmonies), raucous hooks, sly lyrics, and the mischievous and electric interplay between married vocalists Chevonne Ricci and Chris Cree Ricci.Before starting the band in 2012, Chevonne toured the world singing backup vocals for award-winning UK artist Estelle, then went on to sing and perform in Lady Gagas Monsterball world arena tour and HBO special; she also dazzled prime-time TV viewers on Season 3 of NBCs The Voice, where she received coaching and high praises from both Cee-Lo Green and Christina Aguilera. After her time on The Voice, she took to Kickstarter to successfully crowd-fund Chevonne and The Fuzzs 2013 eclectic pop-rock EP Fire At Will (check it out here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/chevonne-and-the-fuzz/id703813305). The EP was critically acclaimed, and obtained exclusive streams from ARTISTDirect and MSN Music, as well as single releases on Zimbio and GuitarWorld.On the merit of Fire At Will, Chevonne and The Fuzzwhose additional members include Chris Bookstaver (guitar,vocals), Doug Hoekstra (bass), and Nick Potters (drums,vocals)were invited to kick off Milwaukees Summerfest, one of the largest and most attended music festivals in the country, and were met with a throng of supportive new fans. It was at Summerfest where C&TF began testing the waters with harder, riff-based songs that would eventually end up on the LP. They returned to the east coast to wow the crowd of North Jersey Pride 2013 in Maplewood with their powerful, large-scale outdoor performance stage presence. During the subsequent year and a half, as they curated hard rock nights at Mexicali and Maxwells Tavern in Hoboken, and developed a cult following at the revamped Court Tavern in New Brunswick, an organic shift took place from their previous kitschy pop-rock sound to a more complex, heavy sonic landscape that can only be described as authentic New Jersey rocknroll.Chevonne and The Fuzz knew they had to pay tribute to their home state and home-grown musical identity by recording the album at local up-and-coming Architekt Studios in Butler, NJ. They co-produced the tracks with renowned producer/engineer Mike Ferretti, who most notably produced Atlanta rock band Sevendusts newest LP Kill The Flaw, which includes the single Thank You that received a 2016 Grammy nomination. C&TF commissioned NJ-based graphic artist Anthony Rubolotta to design a high-concept album package, which features a fluid front-to-back cover image of a mystical woman whose wild hair is entangled with the fur of a howling wolf; this image is harmonious with the bands rugged sex appeal and visceral approach to playing & writing. Although the band is independent and unsigned, they are passionate about creating a fully immersive experience for this album cycle through moody, original imagery and cutting-edge merch.Complete with a spirited, rough-and-tumble stage presence similar to No Doubt, the timeless rock grit and vocal power of Heart, and the steadfast pocket and face-melting crunch of The Foo Fighters, youll want to keep an eye on Chevonne and The Fuzz.

Apr-07-17 08:30 PM Kalie Shorr with SPINN, Chelsea Carlson
As one Taste Of Country reviewer said, Fight Like A Girl is a song that needs to be heard now, tomorrow and in the months and years to come. Shorr owns it like Martina McBride owns Independence Day.For Kalie Shorr, hard work and music have always gone hand-in-hand. Even when envisioning her own success, she never even bothered to dream it would happen overnight. I remember I was having lunch with my future manager when I first got to Nashville, says Kalie. And he was like, How do you see the path of your career? So I kind of nodded and said, So, heres my ten year plan. His eyebrows kind of raised, and he was like, Okay.In the days of get-famous-quick and figure it out later, Kalies steady rise has elements that harken back to another era: growing up in Maine the youngest of six children raised by a single parent; falling in love with music watching her mother sing church hymns and national anthems; winning over rowdy Portland crowds as a country inspired teenager opening up for pop punk music bands. Yet, there are also moments that could only have happened in the digital age of the here and now. I knew I had to do something to get beyond Portland, remembers Kalie. So I posted a video on YouTube of me covering Rebecca Blacks Friday. And it quickly got a few thousand views. Well then one day I got this email that said Hey, I work with Perez Hilton. Are you over 18? And I was like what a sketchy email! So I showed it to Mom and said someones pretending to be Perez Hilton. Theyre going to kidnap me. She was like, I dont know Kalie. I feel like that might be Perez Hilton.It was Perez Hilton, and he was a fan. Over the years Perez has given me a lot of encouragement, says Kalie. It can be midnight, and hell listen to new songs and let me know what he thinks right away. He even invited me to open up for the Backstreet Boys at his birthday party. I met Kim Kardashian. And then I went back to high school the next day. I was only in LA for 18 hours. It was surreal.After a glimpse of the opportunities beyond Portland, Kalie knew it was time to make a move. And once her heart was set on Nashville, she did what she does best: made a plan and put in the work. Kalie took extra classes to graduate from high school early, juggled two jobs to save up money for the move and even moved into a small in-law apartment down the street from her mother just so she could get used to paying her own bills.I had friends going to football games and parties, remembers Kalie. And Im writing and working and playing shows. So my life was structured so differently. I think that was the moment where I got the drive to make music my life.That drive would need to find another gear in Nashville. To get her first gigs, she walked that fine line between persistence and harassment. To pay the bills and leave her mornings free to write songs, she landed a job in one of Nashvilles famed Lower Broadway honky tonks selling hot dogs and cigarettes. To make connections, she had to go out on a limb. Kalie admits, I didnt know where to start. I had no idea. I would just walk up to people and give them my business card and be like, do you want to write with me? And they were like, No. Nashville is friendly but its hard.The new girl in town would eventually find a home at a new Nashville tradition. In 2014 she was part of the first show of the Song Suffragettes, a weekly live show featuring a rotating group of all female singer-songwriters. The second show even featured Kelsea Ballerini before her first #1 single was released.. It is such a great community, says Kalie. When youre on stage, you might feel a little more equal than you might actually be. I dont know where I would have been without it. It was during a Song Suffragettes set that an intern for SiriusXM first heard a performance of Fight Like A Girl, a song written with fellow performers Hailey Steele and Lena Stone. One pitch meeting later, Kalies first radio single was added to The Highways weekend show On The Horizon as the "YouTube Country Spotlight." A few weeks after that, it was chosen as a Highway Find, starting Kalie down the same breakout path of signed artists like Sam Hunt, Cole Swindell, Clare Dunn and Florida Georgia Line. When they told me about becoming a Highway Find, I just started crying, says Kalie. We call it the little song that could. For a song that will introduce me, I dont think there could be a better choice.

Apr-09-17 07:00 PM Carolyn Wonderland with James Calleo & Ty Tuschen
A musical force equipped with the soulful vocals of Janis and the guitar slinging skills of Stevie Ray, Carolyn Wonderland reaches into the depths of the Texas blues tradition with the wit of a poet. She hits the stage with unmatched presence, a true legend in her time.Shed grown up the child of a singer in a band and began playing her mothers vintage Martin guitar when other girls were dressing dolls. Shed gone from being the teenage toast of her hometown Houston to sleeping in her van in Austin amid heaps of critical acclaim for fine recordings Alcohol & Salvation, Bloodless Revolution, and most recently, Miss Understood.Along with the guitar and the multitude of other instruments she learned to play trumpet, accordion, piano, mandolin, lap steel Wonderlands ability to whistle remains most unusual. Whistling is a uniquely vocal art seldom invoked in modern music, yet its among the most spectacular talents the human voice possesses.That vocal proficiency was well-established in the singers midteens, landing her gigs at Fitzgeralds by age 15. She absorbed Houston influences like Little Screamin Kenny and soaked up the Mad Hatter of Texas music, Doug Sahm. The Lone Star State was as credible and fertile a proving ground for blues in the 1980s as existed, especially in Austin with Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Angela Strehli, Omar & the Howlers, and Lou Ann Barton all in their prime. By the following decade, Austins blues luster thinned, but Houston, always a bastion of soul and R&B, boasted the Imperial Monkeys with the effervescent Carolyn Wonderland as ruler of the jungle.In the early 1990s Wonderland & the Imperial Monkeys were invited to the Guadalupe Street Antones in Austin. There, they were treated like royalty with the singer as the queen of hearts in the clubs post-Stevie Ray Vaughan stable, which included Toni Price, Johnny and Jay Moeller, Sue Foley, Mike and Corey Keller, and the Ugly Americans. It was a good bar for the Monkeys to hang, and Austin felt so comfortable that when the band called it quits a few years later, she set her sights on Austin at the start of the millennium.Living in Austin renewed Carolyn Wonderlands focus on her multiple talents, underlining luxurious vocals with fine guitar work, trumpet, and piano, as well as that remarkable ability to whistle on key. A series of each-better-than-the-next discs began with Alcohol & Salvation in 2003 (songs about booze and God; records are a time capsule of what happened that year). Her music played in television series such as Time of Your Life and Homicide.Her circle of musician friends and admirers broadened to include not only Ray [Benson, who produced Miss Understood] but also the late Eddy Shaver, Shelley King, and yes, Bob Dylan, who likened her composition Bloodless Revolution to a mystery movie theme. She began co-writing with locals Sarah Brown, Ruthie Foster, Cindy Cashdollar, and Guy Forsyth; sat in with Los Lobos, Robert Earl Keen, and Ray Wylie Hubbard; recorded with Jerry Lightfoot; and toured with Buddy Guy and Johnny Winter. She also claims membership in the all-girl Sis Deville, the gospel-infused Imperial Crown Golden Harmonizers, and takes aw-shucks credit for inspiring Amsterdams annual WonderJam.It was magic in the studio, too, as Miss Understood came to life, a canny mix of Bensons production, Wonderlands compositions, and select covers of Terri Hendrix, J.J. Cale, and Rick Derringer that punched her sound up a notch. As soon as the album roared to life, it was clear the singer-songwriter-guitarist-whistler had delivered on her long-awaited promise.
