  • New Single: Adeem the Artist Releases "Socialite Blues"

    [American Songwriter] Adeem the Artist will release their upcoming full-length Anniversary on May 3rd. Watch the official video for “Socialite Blues” below. In “Socialite Blues,” Adeem the Artist combines a classic Piedmont Blues chord progression with a lively New Orleans-style horn section to create the kind of sound that is bound to make listeners sway along with the rhythm and tap their feet. Lyrically, this song celebrates the virtues of staying in, listening to good tunes, and recharging one’s social battery with someone special. Adeem’s smooth vocals combined with the bluesy backdrop make this song nearly perfect for just such an occasion. About the song, Adeem the Artist exclusively told American Songwriter that they “Found these Blind Boy Fuller records hidden under a loose floorboard in the back closet at my grandfather’s house.” They then used those records as the blueprint for this tune. “Took them chords and played ‘em like a 7 at 33 and wrote a song about pining for all the parties getting canceled,” they explained.

  • John McEuen's New Spoken Word Album Is Available Today!

    McEuen Adds Music To Stories With Each Composition On His New Album, Which Contains Poetry Spanning Over 200 Years “John McEuen’s new spoken word album 'The Newsman: A Man of Record' is a breath of fresh air. When you are listening to every track of the album, you become part of his storytelling. You can visualize yourself in the story or picture the story going through your mind. It makes me want to take a road trip, so John’s album can narrate my journeys in real time. It is a brilliant collection of stories, and it’s the best storytelling in the 21st century, and I want more!” – Ward W. Bond, PhD, host of The Dr. Ward Bond Show on CTN NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Country, bluegrass, and Americana legend John McEuen is excited to release his long-awaited album, The Newsman: A Man Of Record, today on Compass Records. In this project for McEuen, the album has ten spoken word tracks and one instrumental piece. Each one tells a special story in a way that's like a play, with John's own style of music in the background. The album starts with a story about a newspaper seller who had a big impact on John when he was getting started in Los Angeles and ends with "Jules' Theme," a song inspired by Jules Verne talking about his wife, who passed away in a French cemetery. Every part of the album is carefully put together to make it unforgettable. Outlets including The Bluegrass Situation, M Music & Musicians Magazine,, Center Stage Magazine, Bluegrass Today, My Kind of Country, Americana Highways, The Hollywood Times, and The Music Universepremiered each song. To listen/download The Newsman: A Man Of Record, visit “It was time to bring back the art form of spoken word, where there’s a story with music behind it,” shares McEuen. “The music does not have to reflect anything like a melody, so it’s supportive of the words. I chose some pieces that were not spoken words with music but made them so, and some pieces that were definite spoken words with music and tried to support them as well. These tracks span over 200 years to recent and have made an impact on me. In return, I hope they make an impact on you. I hope you enjoy it!.” The album features a mix of tracks from different eras and genres. The collection spans various literary themes from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Civil War-era poem "Killed at the Ford" to Robert Service's "The Cremation of Sam McGee" about a Yukon prospector. Other tracks include Stephen Vincent Benét's "The Mountain Whippoorwill," Hank Williams Sr.'s "Fly Trouble," and Walter Brennan's "Old Rivers." Thomas Monroe's Vietnam War reflection "Nui Ba Den" contrasts with more recent compositions like John Carter Cash's "The Guitar Of Pineapple John," Hans Olson's "I'll Be Glad (When They Run Out Of Gas)," and Thaddeus Bryant's "Red Clay."

  • The Avett Brothers Release New Single "Country Kid," Impersonate a Priest, Bear, Superhero & More in Accompanying Music Video

    First New Album in Five Years Out May 17th, Produced by Rick Rubin US Tour Extended From April Through November, Including Record Release Show at NYC's Forest Hills Stadium, Three Nights at Red Rocks, SoFi Stadium with Luke Combs, Beach Weekends & Beyond Today, The Avett Brothers are so happy to share the music video for their new single, “Country Kid,” directed by Adam Rothlein: WATCH Arriving on the heels of lead single “Love Of A Girl” – which is simultaneously climbing charts at Triple A, Americana and Alternative radio, and has helped push the band past 1.6 billion career streams – “Country Kid” is the second preview of The Avett Brothers’ first new album in five years. Out May 17th via Ramseur Records/American Recordings/Thirty Tigers, and produced by Rick Rubin, The Avett Brothers is as much untitled as it is self-titled: a collection of songs that revealed themselves naturally over time. Like “Country Kid,” The Avett Brothers is filled with music and lyrics that seek the sacred in the commonplace. Recorded in Malibu's Shangri-La Studios, as well as Nashville, Mar Vista, and the band's hometown of Concord, NC, it is an album interested in the divine unknowable, ultimately reveling in the fun and surrender of what we cannot understand. “It’s very raw and energetic and it sounds killer,” said The Needle Drop, on “Love Of A Girl,” which Consequence praised for its “hopeful, free, careless energy,” and Relix called “a hard reboot for the trailblazing Americana outfit and a studied, attentive return to its roots.” The Avett Brothers will begin performing music from The Avett Brothers on an expansive US tour this spring and summer, including their own five-day festival in Mexico, a headline show at NYC's Forest Hills Stadium on album release day, three nights at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, LA's SoFi Stadium with Luke Combs, and more that now extends through November.

Too Slim chimed in with “Our Ranger is one of the premier Western songwriters of the past 50 years. His work needs to be appreciated and celebrated and I’m just so darn happy the Wrangler is headed for his mantlepiece."

  • The Avett Brothers Announce First New Album in Five Years

    The Avett Brothers Out May 17th via Ramseur Records/American Recordings/Thirty Tigers Today, The Avett Brothers return with news of their first album in five years, out May 17th via Ramseur Records/American Recordings/Thirty Tigers. Produced by longtime collaborator, friend and early champion Rick Rubin, The Avett Brothers is as much untitled as it is self-titled, for as Thomas Keating said: “Silence is God’s first language – everything else is a poor translation.” From the album’s all-vocal opening to the sharp, scrappy and scorching rock n roll blast of lead single “Love Of A Girl,” to the novel strains of folk, roots, synth and strings that have landed The Avett Brothers numerous Billboard Top 5 and chart-topping albums, three GRAMMY nominations, five Americana Music Awards, a documentary co-directed by Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio, and so much more, this record is one that revealed itself naturally over time. Pre-Order The Avett Brothers, and listen to “Love Of A Girl” now: Recorded in Malibu’s Shangri-La Studios, as well as Nashville, Mar Vista, and the band’s hometown of Concord, NC, The Avett Brothers is a collection of songs seen through a lens of independently studied spirituality; questions and considerations in the interest of the divine unknowable. In an ongoing attempt to comprehend existence and our interpersonal connectedness, these songs seek the sacred in the commonplace: a cheap cup of coffee, the smallest movement of love, broken hearts and school bus lessons, a baby’s first and second steps, growing older and holding on to one’s roots, losing someone and accepting fate, rediscovering hope and finding sanctity in tragedy...ultimately reveling in the fun and surrender of what we cannot understand. As their first full-length release on Ramseur Records/Thirty Tigers since 2007’s Emotionalism, The Avett Brothers is both a cumulative opus and fresh start for the band’s future as a multifaceted and singular force. In the time that has passed since their last album, the band have also debuted Swept Away, a new musical inspired by and featuring their music, backed by a cast and crew that have earned a collective nine Tony Awards. Hailed as a “spellbinding tale” and “worthy of a broadway christening” (The Washington Post), the show has completed successful runs in Berkeley, CA and Washington, DC, with more news to be announced soon. Furthermore, the North Carolina Music Hall of Famers recently earned a Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance from the Americana Honors & Awards, while Seth Avett released a solo album celebrating his songwriting hero Greg Brown, Bob Crawford created a podcast about John Quincy Adams, and Scott Avett had multiple exhibits for his work as a figurative painter (while creating all the artwork and illustrations that will accompany The Avett Brothers LP). The Avett Brothers will begin performing music from The Avett Brothers on a far-reaching tour this spring and summer, including their own five-day festival in Mexico, a headline show at NYC’s Forest Hills Stadium on album release day, three nights at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, LA’s SoFi Stadium with Luke Combs, and more across the US.
