Listen to “Bring The Thunder” via All Things Go, here: https://goo.gl/rTZmozIn 2006, Ishi was born as an experiment between friends in Dallas, TX. JT Mudd (lead singer, producer, writer) & Brad Dale (producer, writer, synth, guitar, bass) set out to create a sound that would redefine their own voice in modern day music. Their vision was to blend the classic, soulful story-telling and organic instrumentation of traditional folk music, with the infinite sonic possibilities offered through electronic production. Experimentation quickly evolved into a journey of sound that would ultimately lead to Ishi’s debut, Through the Trees (May 2010) and Digital Wounds (April 2013), along with the addition of Jonathan Merla (drums, percussion), Rocky Ottley (guitar) and Paul Escalante (guitar) to the band.Ishi’s ability to successfully walk the line between an ambitious studio act and a multi-sensory live experience allows them to engage their audiences in an uplifting celebration of life. Their subtle undertones of inner-exploration combine to create a concert experience that is unequivocally one-of-a-kind. Each night, Ishi intends to create an entirely unique environment of mysticism, awareness, love and acceptance. Adored by fans and critics alike, there is no denying that Ishi is an immersive experience that everyone should discover.As musicians who consistently use their music and live shows to uplift and inspire their fans, Ishi has decided to be leaders in the music industry by using their voice to improve the quality of life for those suffering from various cognitive diseases. 50% of all digital sales raised by the EP will go directly to Music Is Our Weapon‘s ongoing effort to provide personal music programs for those battling Alzheimer’s and dementia, PTSD, Autism, Parkinson’s and various other cognitive disorders. By providing caregivers with the tools and support necessary to serve those in need with access to the music they love, they will be able to simultaneously collect data to further understand the power of music as medicine.Ishi is gearing up to release their new EP Juno on September 16, 2016.

September 6, 2016 – Atlanta, GA – Sister rock ‘n’ roll duo Larkin Poe have just released a brand new live video for their single, “Blunt”. Watch HERE. Directed by Raja Virdi, the video shows the band performing the soulful song to a sold out crowd at London’s Borderline venue. She Shreds Magazine premiered the visuals last week, remarking, “Larkin Poe’s latest video, for the track ‘Blunt’ illustrates the raw power of the still emerging band.”
“Blunt” is taken from Larkin Poe’s critically acclaimed sophomore album, RESKINNED, which was released back in April. A fresh version of the original album, KIN, RESKINNED includes new re-mastered tracks as well as productions by Chris Seefried (Fitz and the Tantrums, Lana Del Rey), Justin Warfield (She Wants Revenge, Nico Vega) and Wax LTD (Muse, Bon Iver, Miley Cyrus, Maroon 5).
This October, Larkin Poe will be hitting the road for another tour supporting rock ‘n’ roll icon, Elvis Costello. The tour will include stops in New York City, Oklahoma City, Dallas and Nashville, among others. For more information, please visit http://larkinpoe.com/tour.
Larkin Poe is a sister duo comprised of Rebecca Lovell and Megan Lovell – descendants of tortured artist and creative genius, Edgar Allen Poe. At a young age, the girls were classically trained on violin and piano while being exposed to classic rock icons including Fleetwood Mac and Pink Floyd. Rebecca (lead singer) plays guitar, mandolin as well as violin and Megan (harmony vocals) contributes on slide guitar, lapsteel as well as dobro. After experimenting with an array of musical styles, they found a way to blend together a sound that channels their distinct voice.
The duo has previously hit the road as opening and backing bands for Conor Oberst, Kristian Bush (Sugarland), Dawes and Elvis Costello who praises that “they have a head start on the rest of us with the unique power and beauty of sibling harmony”. With years of domestic and international touring under their belts, and a large and loyal fan base already in place, the sisters want their fans to know that their new album RESKINNED is truly their coming of age project.

Premiere Behind-The-Scenes Look
Into The Making Of “Fake My Own Death”
Pre-Order New Album 13 Voices Here:
iTunes Pre-Order with “Fake My Own Death” Download Here:
July 26th, 2016 – Los Angeles, CA – Pop punk veterans SUM 41 are giving fans a sneak peek into the making of their hit single/video “Fake My Own Death”, with a behind-the-scenes video, premiering exclusively today on Billboard. Watch it here. With over 2.5 million views on the original video and praise from Billboard, MTV, Alternative Press, Huffington Post, Mashable, Entertainment Weekly, Loudwire, Bustle and more, “Fake My Own Death” is the first taste of the return of SUM 41 and they did it in a big way. SUM 41 proves that they are back and better than ever.
Directed by Marc Klasfeld, who previously worked with SUM 41 on their videos for “Fat Lip”, “In Too Deep” and “The Hell Song,” “Fake My Own Death” depicts the band performing on a rooftop in downtown Los Angeles, where all their worst nightmares –including Kim Kardashian, Michael Jordan and Donald Trump– come to attack them. Singer Deryck Whibley states, “The song is about leaving the past behind and moving on. With the video we’re making fun of pop culture in a similar tone to some of our past videos like “Hell Song” and “Still Waiting”. We’re basically saying, that in the middle of all this bullshit we’re just a rock band doing our thing.” Fans can watch the video now, here.
“Fake My Own Death” is the first listen off SUM 41’s forthcoming new album, 13 Voices, due out October 7th via Hopeless Records. The ten-track album marks the band’s first LP in five years, following up 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder, which featured the Grammy Nominated song “Blood In My Eyes.”
With the upcoming release of this album we see SUM 41 as an impenetrable unit putting everything they’ve got out into 13 Voices. The result is a dynamic, impassioned collection of melodic, guitar wielding, rock songs. “I can’t say whether this is our best record or not, as I don’t know if it is,” states Whibley. “All I can say is I did the best I possibly could during the toughest period of my life”.
Whibley began writing for 13 Voices immediately following his four-month stint in the hospital. The frontman recalls, “I had to learn how to do everything again-my motor skills, learning how to play guitar again… I couldn’t even walk at the time. It was really difficult, but at the same time if I didn’t have a record to make, I don’t think I would have recovered as quickly, or even at all. Writing music gave me a purpose. I had to get better.” As Whibley’s health improved, so did his ability to write songs, and 13 Voices soon began to take shape being recorded, produced and engineered by Deryck Whibley at his home in Los Angeles.
SUM 41 just kicked off their summer run on the Vans Warped Tour. Tickets can be purchased, here: http://vanswarpedtour.com/dates/.
SUM 41 consists of five members including Deryck Whibley, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Dave Brownsound, co-lead guitarist/backing vocalist Tom Thacker, bassist/backing vocalist Cone McCaslin and drummer Frank Zummo.

Specifically, Green says, “This song represents a time when in our relationship where we fought a lot and these moments in time didn’t feel good. It was difficult for us to spend any quality time together and having three kids, we were tired all the time. You go through these phases where you don’t see like yourself anymore.” The song is about working out all of those elements to stay in a happy and healthy relationship.
Produced by Will Yip and featuring contributions from Good Old War’s Tim Arnold and Keith Goodwin, Pixie Queen, a follow-up to 2013’s Young Legs, is an intimate and stripped-down effort, featuring raw lyricism and musical execution. Earlier this month, Green released “You’ll Be Fine”, the first taste of the album, which can be watched HERE. Fans can now pre-order Pixie Queen HERE.
This September, Green will be heading out on a month-long solo tour in support of Pixie Queen. Kicking off on September 2nd in Boston, MA and wrapping on October 1st in Green’s home-base of Philadelphia, PA, the “Pixie Queen Tour” will include 22 shows across the United States, with special guests Mat Kerekes and Secret Space.

Anthony Green first began his solo career in 2008 with the release of his debut LP, Avalon. Since then, he has gone on to release a handful of acclaimed albums, including 2012’s Beautiful Things, which peaked at No. 27 on the Billboard 200 chart, and 2013’s Young Legs, which charted at No. 67. This September, the Pixie Queen Tour will usher in a brand new era for the prolific musician.
Pennsylvania natives Green and Yip have been working together for years on music, so it made perfect sense for them to partner for the release of Pixie Queen. Yip had the vision of keeping everything under one roof, harkening back to the days of Motown, where the album was written, produced, mixed, mastered and released all within the same team. Memory Music is home to releases created in the legendary Philadelphia-area recording house, Studio 4. Yip, who has produced and engineered albums for Lauryn Hill, Title Fight, Circa Survive, Balance + Composure, La Dispute and Pianos Become the Teeth, launched the label in 2015 to highlight the community of artists he’s built around his studio and the overall vibe generated by the studio space. Each release reflects the uniqueness of Studio 4’s room and the way each artist uses it differently, creating varied albums that all carry a cohesive thread of their creative environment and Yip’s touch.
