OUTLAW ROADSHOW VIDEO Toy Soldiers - Love Ya Like I Love Ya

OUTLAW ROADSHOW 
PRIVATE SESSIONS 




Billed by USA Today as a “Top Band to Watch in 2013,” the accolades are continuing to stack up for Toy Soldiers. We saw them perform the songs from their new album, The Maybe Boys, at The Bowery Electric for a capacity room. We had the bright idea of having the band come and perform for us in private session so they could show us a side of their music lost in the manic energy of the night before..

Check out this really sweet jam by the band in our garden. Subdued but still bawdy, the band kicks it in with this jam. (showing why exactly this is such a great live show!) ..




ABOUT THESE VIDEOS - All recorded material in this series features top artists (acts that played The Outlaw Roadshow this year, our friends and unique combinations of artists that you will find nowhere else) recorded between the dates of 10/17/13 and 10/20/13. We've got a lot more stuff ahead that you're going to want to see! This is going to be really good.

OUTLAW ROADSHOW VIDEO Nakia - Dream Big

OUTLAW ROADSHOW 
PRIVATE SESSIONS 



TIMELESS MOMENTS - I'm not sure when Nakia went from a singer who I respected and was excited to have in a lineup to being a great, great friend to us all in The Outlaw Roadshow family (who still impresses us musically at nearly every turn) but that is exactly what happened. His stories, his gregarious, open-nature are all reflections of a beautiful soul (you will find evidence of this threaded throughout his music.)

Nakia played a hugely powerful live set at The Outlaw Roadshow in New York (first ever weekend playing NY!) The results (perhaps predictably) were amazing. Some of that magic is captured here in this Outlaw One on One Session. What a beautiful moment, excited as hell we captured this on film! Even more from his session and his live stage performance was captured. Stay tuned for more.

OUTLAW ROADSHOW VIDEO Matt Sucich - The Lonely Dreamer

OUTLAW ROADSHOW 
PRIVATE SESSIONS 



MATT SUCICH was already on his road to winning when he became an Outlaw Roadshow success story.. But that doesn't make us any less proud. He came to us, introducing himself at an Outlaw Roadshow. He watched all the bands played and then handed us a record. And when we heard him play, we knew it was magic. Matt played a huge set for us in Austin, TX. The room was jammed and he left having won tons of appreciation from our crowd in Show 1. During Austin Show 2, he again attended the program, this time to watch the other artists perform. We spotted him in the crowd and called him up for the grand finale to end all grand finales at the end of the night. [the photos].

And we just hosted Matt again in New York (click for a new song!) where he transcended his stage and again proved he is one of the best new acts in America. Such strong vocals! Since that time, Adam and I check Matt out on tour whenever we can and recommend him to whoever will listen.

Here for the very first time ever is the private session video we recorded with Matt. More from this set and his on-stage performance ahead!

OUTLAW ROADSHOW VIDEO Black Books - In My Arms

OUTLAW ROADSHOW 
PRIVATE SESSIONS 

One of the big stories out of The Outlaw Roadshow New York for me will be the play of Black Books. The Austin band on the rise were one of the last acts to join the fold and put on one of the most memorable sets, performing songs from their two new records from this year. They played a number of sets in New York this year, each performance mesmerizing and calming, yet challenging and transformative. I was really anxious to see how the band's private set would work out. Lord, are we all lucky that it turned out this good..

OUTLAW ROADSHOW VIDEO Tallahassee - I Try

OUTLAW ROADSHOW 
PRIVATE SESSIONS 


Tallahassee are so quietly amazing and practically sheepish about their playing abilities that it's impossible not to fall for them in a really big way. Having enjoyed their unbelievable sets for the last three years now, imagine my surprise to find that the band are even better people than musicians (which is certainly very telling because they are very, very good at plucking heartstrings from stage.) For this very special private session recording a this year's Outlaw Roadshow, we asked the band to channel the past and create something to remember. We think they succeeded..

OUTLAW ROADSHOW VIDEO Golden Bloom - White Whale

OUTLAW ROADSHOW 
PRIVATE SESSIONS 

Golden Bloom have been one of the best songwriting outfits in the Northeast for years now and have earned a place in the hearts of music lovers (an irreplaceable part) at The Outlaw Roadshow the last few years. In this very special One on One private session we get to see Golden Bloom's Shawn Fogel and Josh Cohen go head-to-head performing their latest single, "White Whale." Listen to those lyrics and enjoy this masterful, insider moment from New York.

There is much, much more to come - a hint of it lies in the photo below..

The Greatest Outlaw Roadshow ever!


A GREAT BIG THANK YOU - With music fans and devotees flying in from the four corners, and 30 bands playing in a festival-like free music lineup - it's easy to conclude that The Outlaw Roadshow NY was the finest event in our music history.


photo from Friday Night in NYC by Jay Hagenbuch



Outlaw Roadshow Partners Squarespace, The Bowery Electric, Deliradio, KIND, and Standing Sun treated our people right and ensured that truly exceptional people and music were at the center stage. A big shout-out and more thanks to ABC NEWS for featuring Adam & I (whoa, right?), helping expose our work to new fans and even more great bands...

We have a lot more coming for you out of this three-day event over the next few weeks and even more after that... MUCH MUCH MORE! Who wouldn't want to be an Outlaw!?

BLUE COLLAR & CLEVELAND - Cleveland's oldboy have found a winning recipe. Started by Shawn Brewster (vocals), the band's growing numbers have swollen to four in this latest incarnation. Backing Shawn in vocals and playing his "2 string bass guitar" is Michael Kinsella. On guitar is Pete Simon, a longtime friend of Shawn and what one would call a "gear head". Pete's vintage collection of guitars and amps could have its own museum exhibit. Rounding out the band on drums is Greg Hyland. A seasoned drummer in the Cleveland music scene, Greg has also known Shawn for years. Oldboy just released their debut full length album Covered in Sound. This is the band's very first Outlaw Roadshow and we're glad to have them. Guys, we are so excited to see you shine!

JESSE MALIN will headline The Outlaw Roadshow 10/18 !!!


Confirmed to Play - Oct 18th
THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW
NEW YORK CITY




ONE OF OUR MUSIC HEROES - Born in Queens, New York, JESSE MALIN's passion for music began at an early age. Upon receiving his first nylon stringed acoustic guitar, Jesse taped an old 1950’s reel-to-reel recorder with a beat-up attached microphone to its body and the soon-to-be songwriter began his musical career.

Malin began playing live the age of twelve years old in the seminal hardcore band Heart Attack. After the group’s disbandment in 1984, Jesse and his childhood pals formed the rock and roll band D Generation and released three albums, touring the globe several times over before parting ways in 1999. Following several in-between bridge bands, including PCP Highway and Bellvue, Jesse Malin embarked on a solo career and has released five acclaimed records. Over the years Malin has also worked in both film and radio and is now completing production on a new album set to be released in early 2014.

A SET with OLD JACK'S DAN NICKLIN & FRIENDS!!!  

JUST ABOUT PERFECT - For the last three years, Boston's OldJack has been the best rock & soul band in the Northeast, offering soul-stirring live performances punctuated by as many as seven players. The big sound and even bigger set with multiple guitars and back-up singers truly lifts off. (Photos of the band playing our huge show in Austin last year.) At the center of it all has been the songwriting and artistic vision of singer/frontman Dan Nicklin. We have invited Dan back to The Outlaw Roadshow where the band will play stripped-down performances on our stage. Those who attend will be the very first to hear the songs from OldJack's new album. Even we can't wait for that!

DEBUTING at THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW 

Two of our big-time objectives with The Outlaw Roadshow is to put together the shows we (as music fans) would love to attend + working with our friends. That's what we have here..  About 18 months ago we festival-debuted FIELD REPORT on our stage in Austin. Within the year, they were a name that every music magazine writer and critic knew about...

IT'S TIME TO MEET SACCO - John and Andy have been playing in other people's bands for the last 7 years, but SACCO is their own. recorded in a tiny New York City apartment and a borrowed vacation rental, their first release sounds like a mix of everything they've learned along the way. Andy's attention to detail balances out john's soulful sloppiness, and john's love for grammar and verbiage helps andy when he's having a difficult time completing a thought. chris (also a california transplant) plays drums and fits right in. SACCO sings about alcoholic preachers and homeless teens; about human relationships and sleeping in late. parts of their record were made outdoors; listen closely and you may hear a beer spilling, a bird cawing or the neighbors yelling.

MATT SUCICH is added to the Outlaw Roadshow


Confirmed to Play - Oct 17th
THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW
NEW YORK CITY

MATT SUCICH (pron: Sue-Sitch) has made a name for himself performing in Newport, RI (NPR radio Newport Folk after-parties with The Lone Bellow), Austin, TX (The Outlaw Roadshow hosted by Counting Crows and music blog Ryan's Smashing Life) and then there's the live shows... It's just becoming overwhelmingly, obviously clear that Matt Sucich is supposed to be making music and (just maybe) change the world.

WORLD PREMIERE - NEW MUSIC VIDEO  (FIRST TIME ANYWHERE!!!!) 


ARTIST HISTORY - 2012 was a banner year of Sucich but it got much better in November, as Sucich released his 2nd full-length album, Layers, to a capacity crowd at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall.Then came The Outlaw Roadshow. We selected Matt to play for our audiences and he never looked back, delivering a masterful set for our massive crowd. Matt's set was so amazing that producers Adam (Counting Crows) and Ryan (rslblog.com) invited Matt back for the week's grande finale, in which Matt and alls-stars performed a cover by The Band in front of an online audience of thousands! During Newport Folk, Matt was invited to open the NPR showcase for The Lone Bellow - playing a set that in many ways overshadowed events occurring elsewhere in town!




The impacts of the last two years are just starting to ring true. New opportunities are unfolding and with good reason. Matt Sucich is one of the best voices emerging on the east coast today. "My Only Problem With You" is a song Matt wrote and recorded during the Layers sessions that is only just emerging now. Just like the man himself, the time invested is well rewarded.

The Outlaw Roadshow welcomes back GOLDEN BLOOM!


Confirmed to Play - Oct 17th & 19th
THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW
NEW YORK CITY



Sandlin Gaither photo

MEET THE BAND //  GOLDEN BLOOM have become a pop tradition in the Northeast and THE OUTLAW just wouldn't be the same without them. At the core of the band is Shawn Fogel - one of the great contemporary songwriters. Fogel launched Golden Bloom as a solo project and actually played all the instruments in Golden Bloom's 2009 debut: "Fan the Flames" and again in 2011's "March to the Drums."  A cast of multi-instrumentalists joined Golden Bloom on tour, and in the process, they started becoming a sensational live band.

In June of 2012, Golden Bloom live band members Jeff Patlingrao and Josh Cohen travelled to Shawn’s longtime vacation destination of Southwest Harbor, ME where they holed up in a cabin in the woods to work on a new batch of songs. Joined by newly added drummer Justin Hofmann, the quartet retreated to Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, CT, a facility run by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Frightened Rabbit). They produced the sessions themselves with the help of engineer Greg Giorgio.“Many of the songs were arranged collaboratively in the studio,” Fogel says. “The spontaneous energy we generated carried over to the music.”




TWO SETS OF GOLDEN BLOOM!  Last year, Golden Bloom played and were asked to play a second show (at the last second) when one of our bands could not extricate themselves from the city traffic. It ended up being a magical experience - having two different sets from this great band.. So much so, we decided to do it again! This year Golden Bloom plays two sets (by design!): one on Thursday 10/17 and another on Saturday 10/19.

EAST COAST BUZZ!



MUCH TALKED-ABOUT and from BOSTON - Perhaps New England's hottest band as of late, THE FIELD EFFECT seemed to be an endless fountain of energy that's contagious with fans. Their modern rock ballads have won over lyricists but it's often the live shows: where ballads and guitar-rock jams intersect that the real magic is made. Their latest songs, from the Cartography album, most-assuredly fueled a series of passionate love affairs this summer in Boston. Vibrant and New - this appearance in New York will give Outlaw Roadshow fans a chance to see for themselves what all the buzz is about!

CHRISTOPHER PAUL STELLING is a workhorse. A year after releasing the beautiful "Songs of Praise and Scorn" (Best Albums of 2012) and touring extensively on both sides of the Atlantic, Stelling returned home and immediately began working on his new record. His latest, False Cities - is certainly a creative match for it's predecessor in terms of intensity and focus. Brimming with story-telling glory and stage bravado Stelling is a masterful player and a most worthy addition to The Outlaw Roadshow. This will be the journeyman player's first ever appearance with us and it absolutely should not be missed!

THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW

READY TO PLAY!

THE BEST LIVE ACTS - Somewhere along the way Chadley Kolb and his band didn't get the memo that bands from Boston aren't supposed to be able to get down like southern swamp rockers steeped in the blues... My lord this is living music! Regardless of the setting, COYOTE KOLB makes every stage their own. "United State" their breakout second record was #11 of the year on our Best of List. (Editor's Note: link to the full list is below.)

This key New England record was recorded and mixed by Eric Welch at Chillhouse Studios in Boston. The notes on this soul-stirring record churned up a lot of emotions last year and the band, appropriately won their way on to our stage in Austin where they completely tore the roof off the joint! We decided right there and then that we needed to bring these boys with us to New York!

Coyote Kolb are singer and guitar player Chadley Kolb, Owen Beane on the bass guitar, James Clifford on slide guitar and harmonica, and percussionist Matty Maybruck.

Dan Blakeslee is a new England music-scene legend!

His band, The Calabash Club, is shelved for the month of October each year as Blakeslee slides back the coffin lid on his sinister Halloween side project, DOCTOR GASP. A wicked teller of stories who loves to give an evil laugh, this dramatic storytelling mantle of Doctor Gasp, has delighted music fans of all ages as songs of love and murder in the North Woods are spilled on stage.

Wisconsin's emerging as one of the most influential scenes today. Music that drives and inspires other artists. Boom Forest's contemporaries include: PHOX, Foreign Fields, Daniel & The Lion, Field Report and Bon Iver (amongst many, many others.)

CATCHY-AS-HELL FEEL-GOOD MUSIC - The Story for Brooklyn's THE SPRING STANDARDS actually opens up in the Delware Valley, where they got their start. Comprised of a lass (Heather Robb) and two Jameses: James Cleare & James Smith, the Standards craft superior folk pop and indie rock that makes people feel good. Brought up on the music of their elders, they drew much of their inspiration from those times, learning the power of song from artists you all know, The Beatles, James Taylor, Crosby, Stills and the other one. The Spring Standards sing of Life’s great joys, found, lost, found again and lost once more. The things we wanted and what we found instead.. Coming to us from a friend's recommendation makes this already one of the great success stories out of this Roadshow. (The best music comes from your friends.)

Evolfo Doofeht add Gypsy-Funk to The Outlaw Roadshow!

Confirmed to Play - Oct 17th
THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW
NEW YORK CITY





GYPSY FUNK COMES TO THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW! - I think I was only surprised by bands a dozen times last year and this band was responsible for two of those moments. EVOLFO DOOFEHT plays a unique style of music that bares influence from American funk, eastern European gypsy jazz, and garage soul. It is this combination of influences and the fact that they hail from all corners of the United States that they’ve coined the genre “Gypsy-funk”.

Formed in 2009 as the house band for a contemporary production of Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night”, Evolfo Doofeht has spent the last few years performing at colleges, festivals, and nightclubs all over the United States most recently playing a Sunday afternoon time slot at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco. It was during “Twelfth Night” that their interesting name was forged. The director deemed the band “The Food of Love”. Being mischievous as they are they reversed this charge. The first night of the play they introduced themselves as “Evolfo Doofeht”, the food of love spelled backwards.

Everywhere we turn in our lineup is an original story and a skilled singer-songwriter, a gifted guitarist or perhaps a number of friends who just love playing great music together. The Outlaw Roadshow offers many stories - each pulled from the lives of the artists who make the music. New York's Jamie Frankel is at the heart of VOX POP. An exceptional creator of song and melody, he is responsible for much of what you hear on the new Vox Pop record, FRENCH / FUNERAL. The record has a really beautiful sound and the songs lift off the page, like some indie rock fairy tale.

We hosted Vox Pop in Austin and are delighted to have them with us here in New York in the same year. Have a listen to these two songs and then pick up the record... And come out this Thursday night to see this band work it's magic. You will need to arrive early, but it will be worth it.. This is the kind of thing you don't want to regret later!

BEST OF 2013 - BLACK BOOKS


The next Outlaw Roadshow band is Austin's BLACK BOOKS, a favorite underground sound in the midst of a very productive year - a burst of creative energy that's resulted in two remarkable albums (the second of which will be released just next week). Black Books are: Kevin Butyler (guitar, recording engineer and producer), Clark Curtis - keyboards, Meg Gilfillan (keys and lead vocals), and Mike Parker on bass.

AUDIO SPOTLIGHT - Back in January, Black Books released, Aquarena, a ridiculously wickid record that's proven to be one of the best EPs of 2013. (This one really put me on the hook) This is a key moment for this exciting sound.. Black Books are releasing a new record, set to coincide with New York City appearances at the CMJ Music Festival.


NEW MUSIC NEXT WEEK FROM BLACK BOOKS

JAY NASH has signed on to The Outlaw Roadshow

Confirmed to Play - Oct 18th
THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW
NEW YORK CITY



BEST OF 2013:  JAY NASH 


After a solid year of touring, LA's JAY NASH spent most of 2012 hunkered down in a Vermont studio, crafting what would become Letters from the Lost (produced by Bill Lefler & Jay Nash). The last year has been a time for stepping out and (apparently) remarkable growth in music. That ascension brought him to our attention and we invited Jay to play The Outlaw Roadshow in Austin - a two day event which drew thousands of fans from all over the world. Jay's set earned him thunderous applause and we knew we wanted to have him back.





This is the first album he has recorded outside of LA in many years. Throughout his career Nash has shared the stage with numerous acclaimed artists including Counting Crows, Maroon 5, Ingrid Michaelson, Zac Brown, Lucinda Williams, The Low Stars, and Katy Perry. Jay's albums have featured a luminary cast of musical characters: Don Heffington (drummer for Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Ricki Lee Jones) Rob Wasserman (bass for Bob Weir, Ratdog) Chris Joyner (keys for Ray Lamontagne, Jason Mraz) and Jamie Wollam (drums for Jackson Browne).




OUR GRADE:  A-  Change was in the air for this record - and it's reflected in the music. Behind Nash's distinct vocals this time are a far more layered soul. And in support: mandolin, baritone electric guitar, and ukulele. These robust new songs are charged with energy. It was a challenge to Nash to take so many chances and head off into the unkown... These challenges are being rewarded as Letters from the Lost contains both songs that are immediately classic (like Sailor) and quietly important and immediately relevant (Wander). The full breadth of human emotion are captured here. This is career-level work from Jay Nash! This is a record you need to own. BUY IT!

MEAN CREEK will play the Outlaw Roadshow


Confirmed to Play - Oct 18th
THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW
NEW YORK CITY

STORY OF A BAND - Over the last four years, it would be hard to argue there have been more impressive young rock bands in America than this oneMEAN CREEK have quickly gone from Friday night standouts, to Boston rock heroes, to national touring mates for a number of acts - including playing with Counting Crows on last summer's Outlaw Roadshow national tour. They have a breakout album poised to continue the growth which drops on Jan 28 Feb 18 (on Old Flame). It's name alludes to the changes of the last year: Local Losers. This one promises to reach a far larger audience - possibly taking Mean Creek to an entirely new level.





What is it about the band that people get so excited about?  Their sets are eye-openers for sure. Fans do not forget Mean Creek and some even fall in love with their sound.  They are rugged, blue-collar and full of emotion, but beautiful artists, songwriters and human beings*. All these qualities shine through in the music. (*We enjoyed cheap beer and tour food with them all. And drummer Mikey Holland has even written a little for rslblog.com during the band's tours out on the road.)

They also have a wicked sense of humor.. Case in point, the music video for their advanced single from Local Losers, it's called Cool Town and it's clever if not subtle "riff" on Alanis Morissette's Ironic music video

EDDIE JAPAN set to light up The Outlaw Roadshow

Confirmed to Play - Oct 19th
THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW
NEW YORK CITY


CINEMATIC ROCK & HIGH DRAMA!


OUTSTANDING STUFF - When I think about EDDIE JAPAN, I actually think about movies as much as I do music. The reason?? As a boy, I grew up watching obscure films, black and white classics on television and imported and cult films that other kids didn't even know about. I remember.. Seeing this band for the first time immediately reminded me about what I love about obscure films: regardless of whether or not they were unrealistic, these moves had the coolest characters and memorable soundtracks..

An Eddie Japan concert is like that. The band combines 60's baroque pop and mod influences with the less restrained tendencies of ‘80s alternative guitar bands to create a soaring, dramatic sound that stands apart from the beats and banjos of today’s indie scene.

The band was recently described by the Boston Herald as “...a circus of jazzy horn lines and girl group cooing, of swinging ‘60s cool and odd ‘80s new wave.” And it was no small feat for this band to win the 2013 Rock ‘n’ Roll Rumble (a legendary battle of the bands that continues to foster community between artists and fans in New England.) This is a band playing better than they ever had - right at this moment. Their music is completely different and that's what makes them awesome - and the best at what it is that they do.


Eddie Japan took the crown at this year's Rock 'n' Roll Rumble 

Eddie Japan is: Chris Barrett - trumpet, keyboards Eric Brosius - guitar Bart LoPiccolo - guitar Chuck Ferreira - drums and percussion Chuck Membrino - bass, backing vocals, Kate Connell - vocals, Emily Belastock - vocals, David Santos - lead vocals.

Tallahassee have joined The Outlaw Roadshow


Confirmed to Play - Oct 18th
THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW
NEW YORK CITY


TALLAHASSEE - MUSIC THAT'LL PLEASE YOUR SOUL 


WILD, AMERICAN HEARTS - Touring these days behind their brand new record "Old Ways," TALLAHASSEE are one of the very best live acts in the Northeast. The perfect mix of what's old and right from the past with a heavy dose of modern rock on stage, this is feel-good fusion! Whiskey-in-hand, it's a delight to watch a band that can do Americana Rock. Fans of Delta Spirit and Deer Tick will absolutely go nuts for this band - whose name is a Native American word meaning "old town."




At the center of the fray is the hard-to-miss, former New England Patriots prospect Brian Barthelmes (guitar and vocals) a giant of a man with a big creative heart. To his right is the diminutive guitar technician Scott Thompson, who has left me stunned with his wailing and shredding.Matt Raskopf (drums) and Shawn Carney (bass) round out this truly exceptional live act. Expect the unexpected!
