An Evening With Gerald Albright

Genre: Jazz
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

One of the biggest stars of R&B, contemporary and straight-ahead jazz, Gerald Albright has earned his reputation as a ?musician?s musician.? Born in Los Angeles, he began piano lessons at an early age. Albright?s love of music picked up considerably when he was given a saxophone that had belonged to his piano teacher. By the time he enrolled at the University of Redlands, he was already a polished saxophonist. Albright decided to switch to bass guitar after he saw Louis Johnson in concert. A few months after graduating from college, he joined jazz pianist/R&B singer Patrice Rushen, who was in the process of forming her own band. Later, when the bass player left in the middle of a tour, Albright replaced him and finished the tour on bass guitar. During the ?80s, Albright became a highly requested session musician, playing on albums by a wide variety of artists ? including Anita Baker, Ray Parker, Lola Folana, Atlantic Starr, Olivia Newton-John, the Temptations and Maurice White. He also toured extensively with Les McCann, Jeff Lorber, Teena Marie, the Winans, Marlena Shaw, Quincy Jones, and Whitney Houston, among many others. Albright also went on to record numerous successful solo albums for Atlantic Records. Two albums hit the number one slot on Billboard?s Top Contemporary Jazz Chart, and were nominated for GRAMMY® Awards in 1989 and 1990. Phil Collins asked him to front a Big Band in 1998, and they toured together. The two of them also recorded one of Albright?s tunes, ?Chips N? Salsa? on Collins? Big Band Project, entitled A Hot Night In Paris. Later that year, Albright released Pleasures of the Night with Will Downing on Verve Forecast, which hit No. 1 on Billboard?s Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart as well. Albright moved to GRP in 2002 for the Groovology album, and continued to maintain his busy schedule as a session man. His second GRP album, Kickin? It Up, followed in 2004. Two years later, he signed with Peak Records, which released the 2008 GRAMMY® nominated New Beginnings, and the 2009 GRAMMY® nominated, Sax for Stax; both in the category of Best Pop Instrumental Album. Over the years, Albright has appeared on numerous TV shows such as A Different World, Melrose Place and BET Jazz segments, as well as piloting a show in Las Vegas with Designing Women star Meshach Taylor. Albright was selected to be one of 10 saxophonists to play at President Clinton?s inauguration ceremony. Along the way, he has sold over a million albums in the U.S. alone and has appeared on nearly 200 albums by other artists. Albright released Pushing The Envelope in June 2010 on Heads Up International, a division of Concord Music Group. Pushing The Envelope is a showcase for Albright?s remarkably fine balance of songcraft and musicianship, and features special guest appearances by Fred Wesley on trombone, Earl Klugh on acoustic guitar and George Duke on acoustic piano. In December 2010, Pushing The Envelope received a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Pop Instrumental Album. On June 19, 2012, Albright teamed up with GRAMMY®-winning guitarist Norman Brown for 24/7, their first album together. Featuring ten killer soul-jazz tracks, 24/7 includes updated versions of ?Tomorrow,? a Brothers Johnson classic from 1976, and ?Champagne Life,? from singer Ne-Yo?s album Libra Scale. 24/7 was nominated for a GRAMMY® Award in the category of Best Pop Instrumental Album. On August 5, 2014, Albright releases Slam Dunk and continues his reign supreme as the genre?s most compelling and consistent artist. Fans will hear his searing and soulful sax lines on this twelve-track recording. And, they?ll be in for a surprise, as Albright shows off his chops as a bassist, along with his ebullient tenor, baritone and soprano saxophone arrangements on his own compositions, and his super covers of classics by Phil Collins (?True Colors?) and James Brown (?It?s a Man?s, Man?s Man?s World?), with special guest vocalist Peabo Bryson. In December 2014, Slam Dunk received a GRAMMY® nomination in the Best Contemporary Instrumental Album category.

JoFoKe

Genre: Soul/R&B
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

It is rare to find a vocal artist who can maneuver between genres while maintaining a genuine authenticity of each and the integrity of her own voice. Spanning from classical to gospel to jazz through to rock, blues, pop, funk and soul, JoFoKe (bka Joslyn Ford-Keel) is such a vocalist who does this with ease. Fabled to have been born with microphone in-hand on a snowy Denver evening, she was raised engrossed in performing and worship artistry by her classically trained, jazz pianist father, choir director mother and all around artsy blended family. This eclectic artist grew up active in music, theater and dance but, perhaps the greatest impressions were left when she was given a chance to “sit-in” with her family and friends’ bands, vocal groups and orchestras. JoFoKe (pronounced: Joh-Foh-Kee) emerged on the professional Colorado music scene as a teen and, because of her sophisticated musical ear, attention to detail, and ability to effectively adapt her sound to most styles of music, she was quickly dubbed a “chameleon”. Having spent nearly 20 years as a session vocalist, artists consultant, clinician and in other support capacities within the music industry, JoFoKe is currently a highly sought after singer, songwriter, arranger and vocal producer. Not your average pop girl, JoFoKe earned her Bachelors of Arts degree in Music from Historically Black Ivy League college, Fisk University. Fisk, the “Harvard of the South”, is in Nashville, TN; Music City, USA. JoFoKe’s diverse musical upbringing and education afforded her the chance observe, study and perform a large range of artistic techniques including the priceless treasures of Negro spirituals. A former member of the legendary Fisk Jubilee Singers™, JoFoKe renders a unique, youthful artistry infused with spoken word, elements of her “old soul” and the many genres of music to which she has been privileged. As a songwriter, JoFoKe draws from her faith, experiences, observations and her education. As a result, her compositions and arrangements are an eclectic art form of their own. She calls her musical blend of storytelling “Life Music”, a term that has become popular among style-resistant music makers. “I just sing and write about what I do, see, feel or what I want to do, see and feel…” This realness is a strong part of JoFoKe’s appeal and is why she has materialized into an artist to watch. JoFoKe’s passionate delivery, personal testimonies, poetic styling and magnetic energy produce a distinct and refreshing experience for all “within reach”. Transcending music genre lines with a style all her own, it is JoFoKe’s time to step up from the background to emerge as the front woman she was born to be. We’ll close with her words, “Now, watch me work…!”

Howie Day

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Howie Day?s emotionally resonant lyrics and inventive melodies have earned him both critical praise and a legion of devoted fans. He is known for his energetic,heartfelt shows, where he connects with audiences through the strength of his songwriting and his quirky sense of humor. Day?s warm tenor voice ?soars into fluttering, high registers, but also grates with real, pleading grit,? as one critic put it. After sales of over a million albums and two Top 10 hits, Day is back on the road showcasing old favorites, as well a s new material from his upcoming studio release. A native of Bangor, Maine, Day began playing piano at age five and guitar at age 12. By 15, he was writing his own songs and performing across New England. Shortly after graduating high school, Day became a fixture at college coffeehouses across the U.S. He wrote, financed and released his first effort, Australia, which was named Best Debut Album at the 2001 Boston Music Awards. The Boston Globe called Day ?gorgeously seasoned, far beyond his years? with ?a brave, beautiful singing voice.? During his relentless touring schedule, Day began experimenting with effects pedals and loop-sampling techniques as he performed, layering live percussion with vocal harmonies and guitar parts to become a veritable one-man band. He went on to sell over 30,000 copies of Australia as he navigated the independent music scene and continued to hone his craft. After signing with Epic Records, Day released his major-label debut, Stop All The World Now, and hit the road to support it. The constant promotion paid off: Stop was certified gold in the U.S. and spawned two Top 10 radio hits: ?She Says? and the platinum single ?Collide.? After three subsequent years of intense worldwide touring, Day moved to Los Angeles and returned to the studio. His next release, Sound the Alarm, built on the emotionally complex spirit of its predecessor and delved into Day?s journey from indie wunderkind to platinum-selling artist. It?s lead single, ?Be There,? became a staple at modern AC radio. After parting ways with Epic and relocating to New York City in 2010, Day released the Ceasefire EP on his own label, Daze. New songs began to emerge and evolve at shows across North America and Australia. Day is currently immersed in the recording process of his fourth studio album, which he is crafting with the help of longtime friend and producer Mike Denneen. ?There is a sense of inherent creativity and imagination to these sessions,? Day says. ?Everything seems to be in perfect balance, and I want to capture that energy as it?s happening. Nothing is over or under thought, it?s just in the moment.?

Tim and Chitty of Medicine For The People All Ages Show!

Genre: Rock
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Tim Snider wanted to play violin from a very early age. An Itzhak Perlman performance on Sesame Street when he was just three-and-a-half years old was his earliest musical inspiration, and it was classical music that first provided the impetus to learn his instrument. Over the years other influences came into play, from exposure to rock music (he dropped the violin and picked up a guitar), a Ben Harper gig turned him onto songwriting, and sojourns in Spain and Cuba introduced flamenco, salsa and Afro-Cuban rhythms into his repertoire. Returning to college, he spent a year studying jazz, and rediscovering his love of classical music ? and went back to the violin. That?s a lot of music for one so young, but it?s experience that?s served him well. He?s shared bills with artists as diverse as Steel Pulse to Robert Randolph and the Family Band, as well as touring a large chunk of the world playing his own music, a world-folk-jazz-pop hybrid that?s aimed at the heart, the brain and the feet. On his album, Let Go, Jump In the River, recorded with the assistance of a large group of musical friends, Snider brings his influence together in ways that are vital and powerful. Songs are propelled by the rhythms of Southern Europe and the Americas, and his songs get under the skin in a most agreeable way. ?Hurricane? gets things going, pushed along by serious strings, and preparing the ground for the remarkable ?Jump In? ? the semi-official title track ? where his vision (and concept) truly comes together. It?s about letting go and grabbing life, and musically that?s just what Snider?s doing ? with side helpings of driving rhythm and radio friendly hooks.

Roger Clyne, Johnny Hickman, Jim Dalton

Genre: Rock/Acoustic
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

ROGER CLYNE
A third generation Arizonan, songwriter Roger Clyne regularly bares his soul in rock 'n' roll originals that are often tinted with Southwest influences: a verse in Spanish here or a line about a desert landscape there. However, ¡ Americano! takes Clyne's experiences a step further and combines his popular lyrical style with an energetic rage of an album, reaffirming years of blood, sweat and tours.

JOHNNY HICKMAN
Hickman is best known for co-founding the band Cracker. His fiery lead guitar sound and spirited co-writing give flavor to that band's alternative radio hits, including Teen Angst, Low, Get Off This, and Eurotrash Girl. Cracker, founded in 1991 with childhood friend David Lowery, has nine full-length releases to date. Kerosene Hat (1994) remains an alternative music collection staple. Lowery and Hickman together are seen as godfathers of the alternative music scene, who turned gently away from plaid-clad grunge in the 1990s with more countrified and bluesy stylings.

JIM DALTON
Jim Dalton is a Colorado-based singer, songwriter, and musician. Dalton is the lead guitarist for the Tempe, Arizona rock band, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, which formed after the break-up of The Refreshments in 1998. He also fronts the Denver-based alt-country band the Railbenders, and co-founded the Hickman-Dalton Gang with Johnny Hickman of Cracker fame. His live solo shows are known for their loose, fun, sometimes serious, and bawdy nature.

Emporium Presents Alex and Sierra

Genre: Pop
Doors: 6:30PM
Show: 7:30PM

*This event is standing room only*

Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton met on the beach in Florida when they were in high school, not realizing at the time that it was the fortuitous beginning of a musical journey. Alex was a musician, inspired by the infectious music and optimistic attitude of Jason Mraz, while Sierra was a competitive dancer with a love for all things artistic. The pair eventually moved from a friendship to a relationship, always singing together for fun in the car. Every week Sierra would drive over an hour to see Alex perform at venues around Daytona and New Smyrna Beach and it was only a matter of time before he began calling her up onstage to sing. As this continued for a year, the collaboration became more and more significant and eventually transitioned into Alex & Sierra. "We realized we could do more than just a song or two," Alex says. "It felt like more than that. I've always had confidence in music ? that's the only thing I could ever really see myself doing. And then when we started performing together I realized I would get more applause when Sierra was onstage. That made me feel even more confident in performing music. It really was something special." In early 2013, the duo filmed themselves singing the Civil Wars' "Barton Hollow" in front of a rubber ducky shower curtain in Alex's college dorm as an audition for The X Factor. Months passed and the group continued performing around Florida, including a show outside Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran's Amway Arena performance in Orlando in the spring of 2013 for top 40 station, XL 106.7 where Sierra was an intern. In May, news arrived that Alex & Sierra had scored a spot on The X Factor, which they eventually won in December. The experience quickly took the pair to the next level, expanding their musical skills as they offered fan-favorite renditions of songs like Taylor Swift "I Knew You Were Trouble" and Sheeran's "Give Me Love." Alex & Sierra's versions of A Great Big World's "Say Something" and Sara Bareilles' "Gravity" reached No. 1 on iTunes. Overall, their X Factor numbers have sold over one million copies and earned 69 million views on YouTube. "The thing we lived by on the show was making sure what we did represented us," Alex says. "It didn't matter if we made it one week or until the end, it all had to be what we would do after the fact. The show was amazing because it's a great platform for musicians who want to be musicians in the long run. It was a place to start our career." Only a few weeks after becoming the first group to win The X Factor, Alex & Sierra headed back to Los Angeles to start work on their debut album. The idea was to create original songs that reflected the duo's thoughtful, amiable aesthetic. Their first writing session yielded over 20 songs, eight of which appear on their debut album It's About Us. The lyrics were particularly important to the musicians, who wanted to thread the songs together with an overall idea. "We wanted to develop our own sound, rather than make other people's songs work for our voices, like we did in the past," Sierra says. "We knew what we liked and didn't like, and that helped guide the way. The lyrics have always been really important as well. We wanted them to make sense and be meaningful so that others could get lost in the songs and feel the messages. As we kept writing we eventually chose to call our album It's About Us because the thing that connects all of the songs is exactly that- us and our own experiences." Alex & Sierra worked with various musicians and producers, including Toby Gad, Sam Hollander, Julian Bunetta, John Ryan, John Shanks and Martin Johnson, over the spring of 2014 in Los Angeles and Orlando. The pair spent time writing with Mraz at his home in Southern California where Mraz played a song that eventually became the album's interlude, also titled "It's About Us." "All For You," a jazzy love song, is the first song Alex and Sierra ever wrote together. "Jazz is one of our favorite genres," Alex notes. "It's a really important song for us." The first single, "Scarecrow," is a rollicking folk pop stomper that perfectly melds the singers' voices. "We feel like there's something for everyone on the album," Sierra says. "The songs are all different ? some are pop songs, some are quieter ballads. But they all fit together like puzzle pieces that make up one piece of work." All these years later since their meeting on the beach, Alex and Sierra remain connected to Florida, where they still live with their families. The pair received the key to Daytona in December and the week of Christmas was dubbed "Alex & Sierra Week" in the city. The sunny sensibility of their hometowns resonates through both the music and the musicians' attitude around it. "It helps us mentally and emotionally to stay connected to Florida and our families," Sierra says. "Life is so good there that it makes it easy for us to remember that this world is beautiful and that we've gotta stay grateful for everything we have." "In the end, our ultimate goal is to have fun and show people that you can have a career having fun doing something you love," Alex adds. "We want to have fun and be as successful as possible just to show people that if you follow your passion and dedicate your time to it, it will pay off. You can do something you enjoy."

Renowned songwriter, singer, true believer, Alejandro Escovedo released Burn Something Beautiful on October 28th, 2016 via Fantasy Records. The new album, Escovedo?s first solo endeavor since 2012?s highly acclaimed Big Station, is in actuality, a highly collaborative affair. Teaming with Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5) to co-write the album?s songs, Escovedo also enlisted the pair to act as the project?s producers. Escovedo and company take some mighty big swings here. At once a celebration of the rock and roll life, a contemplation on mortality, and the healing power of love, Burn Something Beautiful connects repeatedly with Escovedo?s soulful heart and voice at its core. Recorded in April at Portland?s Type Foundry studio, the project coalesced with the help of an esteemed group of musicians who give the album a genuine band feel. They include guitarist Kurt Bloch (The Fastbacks), drummer John Moen (The Decemberists), vocalists Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) and Kelly Hogan (Neko Case, The Flat Fie) as well as saxophonist Steve Berlin (Los Lobos). In a trailblazing career that began with The Nuns, San Francisco?s famed punk innovators, to the Austin-based-based alt-country rock pioneers, Rank & File, to Texas bred darlings, True Believers, through countless all-star collaborations and tribute album appearances and finally a series of beloved solo albums beginning with 1992?s acclaimed Gravity, Escovedo has earned a surplus of distinctions: No Depression magazine?s Artist of the Decade Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association?s Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006, just to name two. ?You just do your good work, and people care,? Alejandro says. ?I always believed, when I was a kid, that if you worked hard, you would find fulfillment. I think I got a lot of that from my father and my brothers. A working musician is all I ever wanted to be. Hard work, stay true to what you want to do, and then eventually someone would notice for that very reason.?

Following a busy 2016 which included his first tour of Europe, two performances with a full symphony orchestra, and roughly 39,000 miles of travel within the US alone, Acoustic Double-Neck Guitarist and Candyrat Records artist Ian Ethan Case presents a new tour for 2017, previewing music from his upcoming album Earth Suite and featuring a never-before-seen custom instrument affectionately dubbed "The Beast". Incorporating newly developed "acoustic synthesis" technology from American inventor Paul Vo, the instrument was co-designed by Case and private luthier Wade Sylvester and took over 7 years to build. With an array of tuning levers allowing for accessing hundreds of tunings on the fly, along with sophisticated electromagnetic technology that physically manipulates the vibration of the 12 strings, be prepared to hear other-worldly sounds you've never imagined coming from a guitar, double-neck or otherwise. Joining Ian will be live looping and electronic effects specialist Stephanie Case, adding even more sonic and orchestrational variety to the mix.

GRAYSON ERHARD

Grayson Erhard is a singer / songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the small town of Del Norte, CO, USA known for songs showcasing vocals over a unique style of tap/slap guitar playing. He is the youngest guitarist to be featured on one of the world’s most prestigious guitar-focused record labels, CandyRat Records. Growing up outside of a town with a population of 1,800, Erhard experienced little distraction from developing his musicianship. His music communicates a message of self-sustainability, anxiety, love, and accomplishment. Early songs like “Tapestry” display a writing style where technical guitar performance is combined with metaphorical lyrics. However, after putting the guitar down to learn other instruments, a new love for simplicity and strong, direct messages developed in his music. His lyrics are a public journal spanning from positive, uplifting material to songs that reflect the challenges often faced by people in unhealthy relationships, dodgy living situations and the endless search for happiness. Erhard has an intense determination and D.I.Y mentality. In response to career obstacles, he began singing to become an independent songwriter and programmed computer software to build an online community. He has performed at venues ranging from 50,000 capacity stadiums to small, intimate clubs nationally and shared the stage or studio with artists such as Andy Mckee, Shakey Graves, American Authors, Keith Moseley / String Cheese Incident, The Meat Puppets, Soul Asylum, Tribal Seeds, The Flobots, and Passafire.

Blues, rock, roots and Americana all have a promising future in the talented hands of Davy Knowles. Just six years into his professional music career, Davy has an impressive record of accomplishments. He has been endorsed by some of the biggest names in the industry, and he has shared the stage and the recording studio with some of his heroes. Born and raised on the Isle of Man (a tiny country located between Ireland and England), Davy fell in love with music making at age 11 when, after hearing the Dire Straits' classic "Sultans of Swing" on his father's car stereo, he learned by ear to play it on his father's guitar. Along with Mark Knopfler, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, Peter Green, Eric Clapton/Cream and Rory Gallagher were early, significant influences, and they continue to color his playing and songwriting today. After a relentless tour schedule for the better part of four years in support of his first two albums ("Roll Away" and "Coming Up For Air"), 2013 has allowed Davy to spend more time writing new music and playing select live shows, including a number of intimate, solo/acoustic dates. He joined Peter Frampton, a mentor and the co-producer of his sophomore album, for an August date on Frampton's Guitar Circus Tour, which included a stirring take on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" that also featured the wizardry of Sonny Landreth (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z45ePUh4So0).

I?m a singer-songwriter. I think ?Lovers and Leavers? comes closer to reflecting that than any other record I?ve made. I didn?t worry about checking boxes, making sure there was something here for everybody, or getting on the radio. I just took some much needed deep breaths and let them out on tape. It?s been a while since my last album by some measurements of time. Not ?history of the universe time?, or ?getting a bill through congress time?, but in the lives of dogs and recording artists, five years and fifty-three days is only a little less than an eternity. I went through a divorce. I fell in love. Changes were made, realizations were realized, and life was lived. But, I kept on writing songs, on my own and with a cast of accomplished characters who combined their own stories and perspectives with mine. Songs about my friends. Songs about my son. Songs about beginnings and endings. Songs about songs. Songs about acceptance and regret. Songs about lovers and leavers. With these songs in hand, I needed a co-conspirator to help me get them to you. I called on Joe Henry, a gentleman poet and an elegant artist who seemed a trustworthy steward for my collection. We recorded this record live in five days, using just an acoustic guitar, a mix of bass, percussion, pianos and organs, and a touch of pedal steel. I didn?t have one song that I knew would be a sing along or would make people dance. I felt vulnerable in a way that I hadn?t in a long time. But I got what I wanted ? a record with space, nuance, and room to breathe. It felt right for my art. It felt right for my life. ?Lovers and Leavers? isn?t funny or raucous. There are very few hoots and almost no hollers. But it is joyous, and it makes me smile. No, it?s not my ?Blood on the Tracks,? nor is it any kind of opus. It?s my fifth record ? a reflection of a specific time and place. It is quiet, like I wanted it to be. Like I wanted to be.

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

On Thursday December 17, 2015, Vanessa Carlton took the stage in front of a packed audience at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville, TN for the final date of the year's "Liberman" Tour. She'll candidly admit that countless thoughts swirled around in her head, "I was feeling pretty emotional about how far I've come." Here, the singer and songwriter was back in her new home of Nashville, TN surrounded by family and fans, 15 years into an illustrious career, and supporting her most acclaimed work to date, Liberman. Just two months earlier, the album arrived to unanimous critical praise from Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Boston Globe, Nylon, Paste, Esquire, and many more in addition to Pitchfork who claimed, "A million years ago, Vanessa Carlton released "A Thousand Miles," the pop song that launched a generation of piano lessons. Now, she's releasing the raw, muted, refreshingly weird Liberman, a record that could share headspaces with Perfume Genius or Angel Olsen." The night marked a first for the artist as she recorded the show for 2016's Liberman Live [Dine Alone Records]. Now, the nine-song collection captures the evening's magic augmented by surprise performances from her husband Deer Tick frontman John McCauley, The Watson Twins, violinist Skye Steele and album producer Adam Landry. Moments such as "Operator," which featured all of the guests on stage, and an emotional rendition of "River" speak to Carlton's inimitable presence, passion, and power in person. "The whole message of the album is expressing a lot of philosophies about my life, peace, pain, and happiness over the past ten years," she says. "I wanted this record to not only be very personal to me, but an expression of these ideas. A performance is not just about the performer at all; it's about the connection between the audience and the artist. You're at your most vulnerable on stage, and you're singing songs that are an expression of yourself. That's when a performance works. That's when an album works. Liberman was special because it does that. I feel like the show does too." A victory lap and celebration, that evening begins and ends with the record. You could say an unusual light shines through Liberman, Vanessa Carlton's fifth album. Its ten songs, built on ethereal melodies and lush orchestration, seem to climb out of the shadows, each resonating with a sense of haunting positivity. The opening track, "Take It Easy," instantly sets the tone, inviting the listener into a sort of sonic euphoria: each note and lyric thereafter builds on that aesthetic, creating an ongoing narrative that unfurls over its classic side A and side B. "It's a calm record," Carlton says. "I didn't want any angst in there. I thought, "What would I want to hear back? What would make me feel better in my darker times?" Even a phrase like "take it easy," which is in a million songs, brings happiness. This album leans toward seeing the good in humans and in the world." Carlton began writing in the summer of 2012, beginning with "Unlock The Lock," an evocative piano-driven track that set the tone for the songs to come. She'd recently finished touring 2011's Rabbits On The Run, an album conceived through inspiration from Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time and Richard Adam's Watership Down. Carlton found herself in the desert and the song emerged, reflecting a newly revealing songwriting sensibility for the artist. "I imagined a group of people listening to it," she says. "It was the first time I ever wanted to make something like séance music " something that would make a human brain feel at ease, something that would feel right in an everyday ritual. I also realized I wanted the record to be really soothing lyrically and not so much a reveal of me." The musician followed that thread as she continued writing for the next year and a half, this time inspired by books like Joseph Campbell's The Power of Myth and Aldous Huxley's The Doors of Perception. Carlton's primary influence, however, was a colorful oil painting by her grandfather Alan J. Lee, who was originally named Liberman. The painting, created in 1963, hangs in Carlton's home and showcases three woman captured in swirling pastel colors. She wrote many songs while looking at the image, eventually deciding to call the album after her grandfather. "The swirly colors of that painting reminded me of the music and the music reminds me of those colors" Carlton notes. "Then I looked up what Liberman means and it's "honorable man" and "my beloved" " all these things that just felt right to me. It's a strong family name that, in a weird way, describes the music to me." At the end of 2013, Carlton gathered her songs and decamped to Real World Studio in Box, England to work with producer Steve Osborne, who'd helmed Rabbits On The Run. In the studio, Carlton and Osborne focused on the sound, on creating layers of instrumentation with classic gear that veer away from crisp pop production and reference artists like Air. For Carlton, who began her career with several albums at the mercy of prescribed aesthetics, emphasizing the art of space and sonic beauty felt like the next step. This shift is revealed particularly in the trippy ambience of "House of Seven Swords" and the moody "Ascension," which builds a soundscape outward from the piano at its center. Carlton rounded out the album in Nashville with Landry who worked on three tracks. McCauley played on several songs throughout the process, including "Take it Easy," "Ascension" and "Matter of Time." The latter is stripped of instrumentation and highlights Carlton's voice as it soars over McCauley's delicately plucked electric guitar, reminiscent of the old school vocal recordings of Dusty Springfield. Ultimately, Liberman feels like a new chapter in Carlton's storied career, revealing new facets of her musical skill and instigating fresh inspirations. Stagnancy, she knows, is the antithesis to creativity. "Martin Scorsese said sometimes your greatest challenge is not your failure but your success," Carlton says. "In a way I was able to persevere after having a success out of the gate and figure out a path that feels really pure to me. But I had to create this environment where I felt comfortable changing. When I was first doing records I was so young and I wanted to please everyone. But now I sort of feel ancient and I love it and I just want to make art for its own sake. Whether I fall on my face or not at least I know I did it. Everything I've done and everything I am is there in the songs."

Grammy®-nominated singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb started her career with the platinum-selling Number 1 hit song “Stay (I Missed You)” from the film Reality Bites. To this day, she is still the only artist to have a Number 1 single while not signed to a recording contract, a remarkable and unparalleled feat for an unsigned artist, though perhaps not a surprising one for the Brown grad girl with the cat-eye glasses, who at the time was already making her mark in New York’s burgeoning singer-songwriter scene. The story of Loeb’s early success is well known. A native of Dallas, Texas, Loeb earned her degree in comparative literature from Brown University, where she experienced her first taste of real musical success with the duo, Liz and Lisa. The pair built a substantial following on campus and often booked shows in New York on the weekends. Fellow singer/songwriter Duncan Sheik also played in the band during Lisa’s final year of college. When Loeb moved to NYC after graduation, she continued to develop her vision, this time as a solo artist, and hone her artistic talents while carefully managing the business side of her career. This led to Reality Bites and “Stay” in 1994, and the rest, as we say, is history. The fact that “Stay” became a Number 1 single in 1994 and still resonates with people today is a testament to Loeb’s gift as a songwriter and storyteller. Loeb has successfully parlayed her talents into a multi-dimensional career encompassing music, film, television, voice-over work and children’s recordings. Her acclaimed studio CDs include her major label debut, the Gold-selling Tails (Geffen, 1995) and its follow-up, the Grammy-nominated, Gold-selling Firecracker (Geffen, 1997). In 2002, Loeb distributed the album Cake And Pie through Interscope Records and the record was later re-released, complete with additional tracks, as Hello Lisa (Artemis, 2002). She reunited with her college music partner Elizabeth Mitchell on the award-winning children’s CD and companion book Catch The Moon in 2003 and released another solo album titled The Way It Really Is on Zoë/Rounder in 2004. The Very Best of Lisa Loeb was released through Universal in 2006, and during that year she captivated the hearts of a younger audience with three stellar children’s videos “Catch The Moon”, “Stop and Go” and “Jenny Jenkins” from Catch The Moon. In January 2008, Loeb released the long-awaited CD version of Purple Tape, an acoustic guitar and vocals album from her early New York days. Lisa Loeb’s foray into acting began in 1997 with cameos in television shows such as The Nanny and Cupid. She has since continued to perform and add additional television credits to her ever-expanding repertoire, including appearances on The Drew Carey Show, The Chris Isaak Show and Gossip Girl. In 2004, Loeb starred in the first of two television series, “Dweezil and Lisa,” a weekly culinary adventure for Food Network. Her second show, No. 1 Single, appeared on E! Entertainment Network in 2006 and featured Lisa’s inspiring journey to find love. The aspiring artist starred in her first feature film role, opposite Oscar-winning actor Geoffrey Rush, in the movie House On Haunted Hill in 1999. In 2011, she added to her big-screen credentials with a small role in the horror re-make Fright Night. The acclaimed artist has also gained recognition for her voice-over talent by appearing in several animated television shows and video games. In 2003 Loeb gave voice to Spiderman’s gal pal Mary Jane in MTV’s animated series Spider-Man. She also appeared as the voice of Milli the Microphone on the animated Disney show Doc McStuffins in 2011 and is currently the voice of Princess Winger on the animated series Jake and the Never Land Pirates that appears on Disney Junior. In 2008, Lisa also took her talents to the non-profit sector to launch The Camp Lisa Foundation, to help raise funds to send kids to camp. She enlisted her musician pals such as Kay Hanley, Jill Sobule, Nina Gordon and funnyman Steve Martin to record a companion CD, Camp Lisa, and released it via partnership with Barnes and Noble, with the proceeds all going to charity. Continuing her passion for children’s music, Loeb releasing her first children’s book “Lisa Loeb’s Silly Sing-Along: The Disappointing Pancake and Other Zany Songs” in October 2011. Known for her wit, wacky humor and creativity, the children’s songbook that featured a CD included four original silly songs plus six all-time kids’ favorites. Today, Loeb continues to grow as an artist and to push herself and her career forward with a creative zeal and an inner drive not often seen. While becoming a mom of two, she is also in the process of releasing a new eyewear line, in partnership with Classique Eyewear, Lisa Loeb Eyewear; her second children’s book “Lisa Loeb’s Songs for Moving and Shaking” out April 2, 2013; and another adult studio album, No Fairy Tale, out February 5, 2013. Forever the fearless performer, Lisa Loeb is constantly exploring her creativity and telling original stories; whether by writing a book, producing a TV show, or continuing to develop her acting career.

As 2015 began, I had somehow been on the road for the fastest, longest two years of my life. I had kicked the tires hard touring in support of my album Traveling Alone. I had recorded and toured with classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein. My friend Andrew Bird asked me to be in his old time band the Hands of Glory, so I pretended I was a member of the Carter family on guitar, and I watched him like a hawk to make sure he felt fully free; singing harmony with Andrew is not unlike flying. Suddenly, I was turning 40, getting divorced, and scared out of my mind. So I decided to take a year off the road to see what would happen to me if I just stopped touring? On a friend?s ranch in Marfa, Texas, in the middle of the high plains without a car headlight in sight, I did just that, and when I did, I started to do what I always do: the humble work of marking life by writing. On the ranch, I wrote about the long straight roads in west Texas: the ones that make sense, that make you feel like what is behind you is indeed behind you and that good things are up ahead. ?Wait For Me? is a wish that life would run like that. Watching the ranch hands keep their daily routine, I wrote about keeping my own head down, pressing on, and the way that love persists and pushes forward no matter what happens, ?Love Soldiers On.? I watched birds learning to fly and bathe in the driveway dust at dusk in the front yard and wrote ?Icarus? about what they taught me. In my California cabin, I wrote every morning and hiked every afternoon, up the mountains to the East and along the rocky coast, farther than I had ever hiked, one exhausted foot after the other. ?Heartache is an Uphill Climb? began in the red mud on one particularly impossible incline. Once, having hiked farther than I realized, dark fell on me. The white lilies in a meadow began to glow like evening dresses as the moon rose in the changing light. ?Proclamation Bones? is a tribute to that unexpected beauty, to nature?s secret nightlife. On return to NYC with Raymond Carver?s All of Us: The Collected Poems in hand, his poem ?My Boat? leapt up like lightning; it wanted to be sung. In a hungover moment of joy coming out of a subway, ?Something Came Over Me? seeded itself. And the heavy sadness of memory washing over me as I looked out at the East River became ?Eastern Light?. Look, everyone knows that album bios are usually full of crap. How about this: This album weathered no doubt, Marlon Brando?s ghost played bass and a fire-breathing dragon co-wrote the songs! Let?s be clear about something ? What made my time off special was that I had a regular writing routine. I was private. I followed my heart and my craft. The story of being a writer is the story of being devoted over a long time. What I hate most about bios is that they trade the small virtue of the writing life for pretending that artists and albums spring forth fully formed, trimming the tale to fit the spotlight. I?m more comfortable being real about things. I took my life and synthesized it through my writing with an intensity that no one but the birds saw but that hopefully you can feel. And life continued. Let the real story here be that there is love and beauty in the mess of dedication. And life did continue. In Fall, my friend MC Taylor asked me to be a part of his new Hiss Golden Messenger album. About the same time, to my delight and surprise, I realized my boyfriend and I were expecting a child. I performed with HGM just as I began to show; MC and his band talked on and on about how North Carolina was a place you could actually raise a child AND be a musician. My roots and my friends pulled. In an airport, I bumped into my friend Sam Beam. He said I could send him my songs, and when I did and he said, ?I can tell you?ve been working hard on your writing,? I was filled with the gratefulness which comes from being heard. I couldn?t believe he wanted in on the record making party, along with my favorite musicians, for four days because that was what I could afford. One long night before leaving for the studio, I stared at the ceiling of my NYC apartment. The leaves, the streetlights, and the sirens drew a shadow vine. I cried for dreams that were gone, and I gathered myself for those to come. I recorded in Los Angeles six months pregnant and then set off for home to figure out what a onesie was. I showed up back in my hometown knocked about a little by the world thinking maybe my life was a country song, but maybe it was a really good country song. What strikes me most when I am writing these days is the changing nature of things. Sometimes sex matters deeply, sometimes family eclipses all; sometimes aloneness is hell, sometimes it is a refuge. Sometimes hometowns are constricting; sometimes they are a sight for sore eyes. We do our damnedest. For all the times we are watered down and compromise, we can become rigid and impossible just as easily. We right ourselves as best we can and carry on. It is a loose thread that holds us best together in this life. Not too tight, not too planned, enough give to stand what tangles us but ties us nonetheless. Ties us to each other in some unseen pattern, to our actions, to the songs that come out of us, to the seasons that pass through us. We press on, love persists, and we must trust the unknowable pattern we are making. My little daughter is sleeping beside me now, and what I hope for her is what I will tell you now. May these threads be joyful; not heavy chains, but light like wings, like starlight, like laughter. Empty your pockets of stones, that light-hearted you may go (for you must go), with the stitch of the world, into the stitch of the world. Tift
