AUSTIN BOOGIE CREW RECORDS (ABC) is an independent music label specializing in modern funk, a slightly underground genre that shares its DNA with a lot of big artists like Anderson .Paak, Bruno Mars, and Tuxedo. Founded in Texas in 2014, ABC RECORDS is on a mission to showcase the breadth of new music inspired by 1980’s boogie, the synth-heavy sound that has remained influential since its inception, and has reemerged in a big way over the last decade.

The artists highlighted on the ABC roster are known for their ability to intertwine classic funk sounds with a myriad of other genres, including R&B, electronic, hip-hop, and even indie. A new compilation CD showcasing the diverse talents of the ABC RECORDS crew, 5 YEARS OF MODERN FUNK, released on March 27, 2020. The CD is an impressive collection of amazing artists that bridge generations, from modern funk heavy hitters like XL Middleton, to legends of the first boogie wave such as B & The Family (whose front man Brian Morgan played guitar on “Rappers Delight” back in ‘79).

Since their official launch, ABC RECORDS has branched out across states and countries to create a diverse catalog of artists from Sweden, Canada, New Orleans, California, New Jersey, and of course Texas. They have released 15 projects from 14 different artists from around the world, and have moved 7,500 Vinyl records in the process.

The 5 YEARS OF MODERN FUNK compilation will appeal to fans of modern funk and electronic beats alike, and in addition to XL Middleton and B & The Family features tracks from an array of artists with their own distinct vibe including Diamond OrtizSolar ShieldRojaiTrailer LimonStarship ConnectionLowmacComputa GamesMoniqueaJonny Tobin, and Spence. Previously these tracks were all released separately; this is the first chance to get a great sampling of the ABC RECORDS catalog in physical form with this limited CD run.

For Immediate Release – Long Island, New York – Aussie-American alternative rock quintet THE WALK-A-BOUT hail from the artistic East End of Long Island, New York. On June 5th, 2020 THE WALK-A-BOUT released their full-length LP 20/20 worldwide in stores and online. Produced by Andrew Michael Bertrand and mastered by Roger Lian, 20/20 is an incredibly diverse record that explores many genres, expanding the scope of band’s classic sound. There is something on the album for everyone. Whether it’s alternative rock, world music, funk, or the influence of prog rock, THE WALK-A-BOUT’s music is visceral, emotional, fun and socially conscious.

THE WALK-A-BOUT began writing the material for 20/20 in March of 2019, right at the time when the band began to achieve massive radio success with their album THINGS ARE LOOKING UP, which consistently landed in Top 20 charts alongside such artists as Paul McCartney, Jeff Tweedy, Mumford & Sons and Death Cab for Cutie. The album reached #4 on Roots Music Radio Report, while the singles “Consequences,” “By My Side,” and “That’s Just The Way It Goes” ranked simultaneously in the Top 5 of the alternative rock singles chart. The album was also ranked #24 on Roots Music Radio Report’s “Best of 2019” chart. The video for “That’s Just The Way It Goes” had an online premiere hosted by Skope Entertainment and continuous play on over 75 broadcast outlets throughout the summer and early fall of 2018. THE WALK-A-BOUT also released a limited edition 180-Gram Red Splatter Vinyl of THINGS ARE LOOKING UP available exclusively through their website.

Band members Darren “Sully” Sullivan, Kevin Anderson, Drew Bertrand, and Dave Christian were joined by bass player Keenan Zach for the writing and recording of 20/20, and their collective vision has allowed THE WALK-A-BOUT to explore the outer reaches of music, soul and spirit. This dynamic new collection maintains the band’s depth and introspection, delivering a deep and entertaining album with pop appeal. 20/20 was recorded on 14 reels of two inch tape, a recording method that is reflected in the dynamic sound of this extraordinary release, which is destined to be a classic.

After years of composing beautiful compositions, fate brought acoustic guitar virtuoso Kevin Anderson together with Australian singer/songwriter, blues harpist and didgeridoo player Darren “Sully” Sullivan. Sully was the perfect songwriting partner to marry Kevin’s music with lyrical landscapes, and they began working together in the fall of 2015. The lineup moved closer to completion with a chance introduction to drummer and producer Drew Bertrand in December 2015. Drew quickly acknowledged the unique nature of Kevin and Sully’s writing and began sculpting arrangements for every song, carefully crafting the distinct identity of each piece. From there the band has since gathered Dave Christian on guitar and Keenan Zach on bass. The material for 20/20 was written between March and September of 2019. With a master’s degree in music theory, Keenan Zach was an invaluable resource in the studio while crafting the songs, bringing a new layer of thoughtfulness and quality control to the already exceptional songwriting.

Other musicians on the record include Michael Amendola on tenor sax, Mark Rechler on Hammond organ, and special guest vocalist Victoria Faiella. Roger Lian and Drew Bertrand worked closely on the final mixes and masters, the two having an integral and long-term working relationship that spans twenty-one years. The stunning album art and design for 20/20 was done by Drew’s good friend George Panagakos of 525 Media, and it makes the vinyl worth buying for just the artwork alone.

THE WALK-A-BOUT has toured along the East and West Coasts throughout 2018 and 2019. They are currently preparing a world tour in support of their new album release 20/20, and you can check out the lyric video for the first new single “Victory Parade” on their recently re-designed website!
