Tyler Childers - Universal Sound Tyler Childers - "Feathered Indian" Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Kentucky is a little town called, Paintsville, where the economy is dependent on the dying coal industry and a tradition of music thrives with the US 23 Country Music Highway Museum and Butcher Hollow. Carrying on the music tradition is native son and current Lexington, Kentucky resident, Tyler Childers.

Paintsville is located in the Big Sandy River Valley of Johnson County in Eastern Kentucky made famous for its lawlessness, religion, and booze, and a song about a horse thief, a rambling man, and an attempt to gain some good ol' Appalachian self-justice is what "William Hill" is all about. Following his "Papaw" around to the Kentucky social institutions – church events and barber shops to name a few– as well as a lot of coon hunting with his dad, Tyler has heard a tale or two about the misadventures of a few good ol' boys and he gives his own spin of these accounts behind a whisky-soaked voice well beyond his age of 22.

A Memphis Music Revue with Amy Black

LinksJoin The Amy Black Band for a soulful evening of music originally recorded in Memphis by artists including Ann Peebles, Otis Redding, Carla Thomas, Bobby Blue Bland, O.V. Wright, Al Green, Otis Clay and others.

Take a musical journey through time with songs recorded on the Hi Records, Stax Records and Sun Records labels, along with new original songs that capture the soul and grit of Memphis music.

ABOUT AMY BLACK

Amy Black’s fourth solo release, “Memphis” (June 2017) was recorded in Memphis, TN with Scott Bomar, a grammy-nominated producer and leader of the band The Bo-Keys, at the helm. This powerful 10-song album includes seven originals and three classic covers, featuring three members of the Hi Rhythm section who played on Al Green's classics -- The Rev. Charles Hodges on the Hammond and piano, his brother Leroy “Flick” Hodges on bass, and Howard Grimes on drums, along with former Stax guitarist Bobby Manuel - all architects of the Memphis sound.

Devising and creating the “Memphis” album was an obvious next step for Black on the heels of her third release, “The Muscle Shoals Sessions" (June 20015), a project of mostly Muscle Shoals classics, featuring the legendary keyboardist and “Swamper” Spooner Oldham. The album was recorded at the historic FAME Studios in Black's family homeland of Muscle Shoals, Alabama.

With the “Muscle Shoals Sessions,” Black established her “true potential as a bluesy, R&B heavy hitter” according to Elmore Magazine. Blues in Britain wrote, “Black Is blessed with a deeply soulful voice that melds elements of Dusty Springfield, Mavis Staples and Alberta Hunter.” And Relix Magazine described her sound as, "a blend of sultry desire and ardent passion...that’s both tough and tender.”

According to Black, “Recording in Muscle Shoals and doing 100+ shows where I sang some of the most soulful music that exists, brought something out in me I definitely didn't know was there. It developed me as an artist, helped me find my true sound and prepared me for the Memphis project. I've never been happier with the music I'm making and performing than I am right now.”

With the album, “Memphis,” Black has made a powerful connection with her musical passion, a passion she and her band joyfully share with audiences in her live performance of A Memphis Music Revue.

Born in New Orleans but conceived in Atlanta, it’s a collaboration that just HAD to happen.

The catalyst though was the legendary band 311. Every March these NOLA natives bring the music back to the home folks with “311 Days Bourbon Street Takeover”. Headlining two nights of music and debauchery, 311 brings in the highest energy tribute acts they can find to carry the party on into the wee hours and thus they reached out to ATL for ILL Communication and Behind the Sun.
Rockin’ the best of the Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers like only ILL Comm and BTS can, playing back-to-back on consecutive nights was not only a perfectly spiced-up recipe for a party, it was also a natural thang for the bands to team up on stage for a Big Finale… and Bourbon Street’s been bouncin’ ever since!

Now the guys are fixin’ to take this bill on the road, but not before they stage this preview show and party for the home folks in the ATL. The bands will be shooting live video and pulling out all the stops, so come out in force and be part of the show!

ILL Communication – Fronted by 3 of ATL’s most versatile performers, ILL COMM brings back the glory days and one-of-a-kind party vibe of Ad-Rock, MCA and Mike D with their high energy tribute to the Beastie Boys.

Behind the Sun – Touring with their new frontman, who just happens to be a dead ringer for Anthony Kiedis, and nailing the legendary musical chops of Flea, Frusciante and Smith, BTS has asserted themselves as the nation’s ultimate Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute act.

In late 1966, at age 24, came the opportunity of a lifetime to join the Muddy Waters Band and help shape the electric blues sound that inspired the rock and roll movement of the late 60s and early 70s. Regular guests of the band included Eric Clapton, Paul Butterfield, Mike Bloomfield, and Elvin Bishop. The Muddy Waters Band (as a unit) shared the stage with the likes of Howlin Wolf, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, Junior Wells, Big Joe Williams, and Big Mama Thornton just to name a few. During this time, Mac played on John Lee Hookers live album, Live at the Caf Au Go-Go, as well as Otis Spanns classic recording The Blues is Where Its At.Here is how he met Muddy Waters...In 1965, having already established himself back home as a bass player, playing with J Floyd & the Shamrocks including James Brown on keyboard , Mac Arnold decided to take a trip to Chicago to check out the Blues scene. He was obviously impressed because 3 months later 24 year old Mac packed up and moved to the Windy City to expand his music career.There was a club called the Green Bunny Club on 77 & Halstead St. where Mac first met his sax man A. C. Reed who at the time needed a bass player. Mac was the right man for the job. He played with A. C. for only a short time when he got a chance to play with Muddy Waters. He was asked to come out to Big Johns Grill on the North side to sit in with the band. Muddy asked him where he was from, he replied Greenville, South Carolina. Muddy said, son, if youre from the South, then you can play, and so he did for over a year. His first gig with Muddy was the Mother Blues Club. The bands line up was Luther Johnson on guitar, Sammy Lawhorn on guitar, Frances Clay on drums, Otis Spann on piano, Mac Arnold on bass, and Muddy on guitar and vocals. The band would play most of the show and Muddy would play the end of the set. On occasions he would play every other set. This gave the guys a chance to show their stuff. Mac had an edge because hed been working with James Brown in the past. A lot of people had yet to of heard of James Brown, so when Mac would play that funky stuff, it got a lot of peoples attention. Mac is a left handed bass player, and if you listen to some of his early recordings, you will hear he was way ahead of his time.The band would tour from the East to West Coast and all points in between. Cruisin in a 1965 Fleetwood Cadillac, all 7 band members and the driver (Bo) at the wheel. Bo could drive almost non-stop from St. Louis to San Francisco with no sleep. One time they were passing through Mississippi, they stopped in to see some of Muddys relatives and wound up doing a show. Mac stayed at Muddys cousins house, and when L. A. he would stay with George Smith and his family of 6 kids. While touring the West Coast, Mac fell in love with the California weather. When he returned to Chicago he told his wife were moving.Mac talked to Muddy and told him he would give him time to find another bass player. Muddy wished him luck and said he would have him back any time, and that was it. Mac is one of the last surviving members of the Muddy Waters era, and so Mac Arnold & Plate Full O Blues begins.Mac now resides in Pelzer, SC, where at the age of ten he got his first taste of the blues when he learned to play his brother Leroys home-made guitar. Going back to his roots, Mac is serving up a mess of Blues with his own band, Mac Arnold & Plate Full O Blues. The band consists of Austin Brashier on lead guitar and vocals, Max Hightower on keyboards, harmonica, rhythm guitar, bass and vocals, Scotty Hawkins on drums, and Mac Arnold on Slide and Rhythm Gas Can Guitars, vocals and bass. Mac is also an organic farmer and opened the Mac Arnold Plate Full O Blues Restaurant in Greenville, SC.The Blues Music Awards have taken notice of Mac Arnold over the past few years. Mac was on hand for the 31st annual Blues Music Awards held May 6, 2010 in Memphis. Mac accepted the award for Best Historical Album for his participation on the 1966 recording Muddy Waters - Authorized Bootleg: Live at the Fillmore Auditorium (Geffen Records) The recording was released in 2009.

The Cactus Blossoms | Adios Maria | The Lowertown Line The Cactus Blossoms - Stoplight Kisses The Cactus Blossoms - Change Your Ways or Die (Live on 89.3 The Current) The Cactus Blossoms - A Sad Day To Be You (Live @ Rhythm & Roots 2013) Our new album, You’re Dreaming, didn’t happen overnight. It is the culmination of several years of songwriting and the kindness of thousands of miles and friends. A cast of characters, experiences, and personal perspectives set in simple rhymes and sung in harmony to paint a picture in your mind.

When my brother and I started making music as The Cactus Blossoms there wasn’t a big plan. We cut our teeth performing some well known and obscure country songs that were popular or unpopular pre-1960, partly out of curiosity and deep appreciation, but mostly because it was fun. Early on, we were offered a residency at the Turf Club in St. Paul, Minnesota, so we got a band together and it became our weekly “practice-in-public” where we would pull out every song we could think of, no matter how well we knew it. It was our first chance to play all night and do whatever we wanted. Over the course of our year and a half at the Turf Club our repertoire had snowballed into an amalgam of original songs and a bunch of gut wrenching, “tongue-in-cheek” heartbreakers, that were 30 years older than us. Not everyone could tell what was new and what was old, and it didn’t really matter. They just seemed to enjoy it. That’s how the wheel got going and gave the illusion of spin
ning backwards. We weren’t born in the wrong era. We just got into some music from a different era and happened to make it our own.

Every step of the way we’ve had the good fortune of being offered an opportunity that seems just beyond what we’re ready for. It always stretches us out and makes us feel lucky as hell. When JD McPherson called us up and said he was interested in producing our record it was the latest in a series of serendipitous events that have brought us to where we are today. We had opened for him at a hometown gig in Minneapolis a few months earlier and had met him briefly, but could never have imagined then that within a year we would be recording a new album with his help and criss-crossing America on tour with his band. He’s got the singing voice of an angel, a connoisseur’s taste, the boundless creative energy of a child, a scholar’s mind, and he can hear like a wolf. This guy was the guy. He wanted to do something sparse and rhythmic with simple melodic arrangements and it lined up perfectly with the direction our new songs were leading us.

We wanted to record live with the best rhythm section we could find, which led us to Chicago where JD enlisted the amazing talents of drummer/engineer Alex Hall, guitarist Joel Paterson, and Beau Sample on upright bass. Three musicians who practice their respective crafts to genius proportions and bring it all to the studio. At the start of our first recording session we barely knew these guys and they barely knew our music. Alex was setting up microphones and running cables while the rest of us were drinking coffee and cracking jokes to wake up. Within a couple hours we had cut the first song for the album, “Queen Of Them All”, and we knew we were in the right place at the right time.

with Travis Linville
The replay of John Moreland's network television debut isglorious and affirming and a sucker punch. He is announced by Stephen Colbert, lights dissolve, and the camera slowly focuses on the person midway across the unadorned stage, revealing him beneath muted blue lights.He is a big man.Seated, alone, cradling his acoustic guitar.He looks like nobody who is famous.Then he begins to sing, to caress the song Break My Heart Sweetly, and all that remains is to whisper, Oh, my god.In Colbert's studio everybody stood, like they were in church.Big Bad Luv is the record John Moreland made after, after everything in his life changed. For the better.He sings in one of those accents from flyover country that's impossible to locate and implausible to mimic. (Texas, by way of Northern Kentucky, but mostly Tulsa, as it happens.) He sings directly from his heart, with none of the restraint and filters and caution the rest of us would apply for public protection. He sings with resolute courage.He sings.And writes. Writes with simple eloquence about love and faith and isolation; the human condition; what every song and poem and novel is about, at the core: Life.Break My Heart Sweetly came from his second solo album, released in 2013 and titled In the Throes. High on Tulsa Heat, released through Thirty Tigers, landed him on Colbert's stage (that's the LP Colbert held up). Song placements on Sons of Anarchy, an emerging artist nomination from the Americana Music Association.Enough sales to compel Moreland to give up his DIY label operation, and sign with 4AD. It grew to the point where I couldn't really handle everything myself, he says. Even with a manager and a small team, I came to the conclusion that I'd like to play music and not worry about the other stuff.Enough success to buy a measure of peace, and not more pain. I expected to just play in the corner of the bar and have people not really pay attention, make $100, go home and go to work the next morning, doing something I didn't like, Moreland says. So, yeah, I didn't really expect to be here. But, then, on the other hand, I did. I feel like I'm good enough to be here. And I've always been confident, even when I probably shouldn't have been. I knew I was an outsider. I didn't have a lot of faith in the music industry to let me in. But I guess they have. To some extent. That's what I hoped for, but I wasn't sure that would be how it worked.In churches learning how to hate yourself/Ain't grace a wretched old thing he sings, the song called Ain't We Gold. Big Bad Luv is unmistakably a rock 'n' roll record. If, that is, one understands the term to include Ray Wylie Hubbard, John Hiatt, and Lucero. Or The Band, maybe. Insistent songs, coming from a voice as elegant as unfinished barn wood, songs which insist upon their words being heard.His fourth solo album, not discounting two records with the Black Gold Band and a third with the Dust Bowl Souls. Nor discounting early excursions into hardcore which were not youthful indiscretions but crucial training in the emotional honesty of confessional songwriting. A rock album, to be performed by a rock band. A partial break with the solitude of solo touring.Two or three years ago, Moreland says, it would have been impossible to picture touring with a band. Now that's changed. I think I'll still do some solo or stripped down shows, but I have the option to bring a band with me if I want. Ultimately it's just what the songs felt like they should be.Big Bad Luv was recorded down in Little Rock, mostly with a crew of Tulsa friends: John Calvin Abney on piano and guitar, back from Tulsa Heat; Aaron Boehler on bass; Paddy Ryan on drums; Jared Tyler on dobro. And then Lucero's Rick Steff on piano, which ended up being the catalyst for completion.I always start off writing whatever comes naturally, Moreland says. Once I've got seven or eight of those, then I'll take stock and look at what I've got, figure out what belongs on a record together, and what might not. Then I'll figure out what kind of songs I need.Three sessions over ten months, sandwiched between touring dates and life. The final sequence roughly approximating the order in which songs were written. I chose the sequence for what I thought worked best musically, he says, untroubled.Quick bursts of recording, Moreland goes on. Gives off a quick laugh. It's not like we're sitting there over-thinking the performances, I'm definitely a fan of just hit record and play it. But then there's long stretches where I'm not in the studio, when I'm listening to what I did, asking how do I turn this into a record?The key turned out to be Rick Steff's promise to record next week, even though Moreland didn't have songs, not a one. I went home and wrote five songs in four days and finished up, Moreland says. Another deep, wry laugh.Big Bad Luv is, at least by comparisonmaybea happier record? I don't think I'm writing songs that are that much different, Moreland says. It's always been a positive thing at heart, even if a song isn't sunshine and rainbows. At the very least my songs have been a way to exorcise negative feelings so that I can move on. And hopefully they provide that same experience to listeners. So that's what I'm still doing. I think it's a positive thing. I think this record, there's definitely a change in attitude, but it's the same point of view.Oh, yeah. And Tchad Blake mixed it. He's also the only person I've ever worked with on a record whose name I can drop.Slow down easy, I've been hauling a heavy soul, he sings, this song titled Slow Down Easy. Carrying it for all of us, but no longer alone.

Steel City Jug Slammers- Mobile Shake (Tiny Desk Contest Submission 2016) Steel City Jug Slammers - Trouble Always Follows Me Steel City Jug Slammers - She's Long Gone (Official Video) Steel City Jug Slammers is a modern jug band performing Pre- WWII and original material. The band was started by Nicholas "Ramblin' Ricky Tate" Bate with Jerrod Atkins & friends in 2012. The band consists of Ramblin' Ricky Tate, Washtub Jay, & Maxwell Honeycup. Since forming the band has has become known for their jug band antics. Performing a catalog of classics and originals, the Steel City Jug Slammers brings the sounds on the 78 RPM era to life.

The band continues a tradition of jug band music that is highly influenced by the sounds of early Memphis string band and blues. Instrumentation in the band varies. While the guitar provides the pallet for the songs, it is carried by the back bone of the washtub bass and jug. On top of that you will hear anything from banjo- mandolin to banjo- guitar and maybe even a little kazoo.

"Birmingham’s Steel City Jugs Slammers provide audiences with a one of kind experience. From the moment that they take the stage, spectators will immediately take a step back in time. From their appearance, to their instruments, to the old southern banter, this group has all the charm of a century-old traveling music show fresh off the train, and will keep your attention captive from the first time you hear the blow of the jug and pluck of the tub bass."
