New York Rock Band FEVERSEED Release Debut LET YOURSELF DOWN EP Through Hice Records

Click here to listen!

For Immediate Release – New York, NY – FEVERSEED is a New York rock quartet founded by singer/lyricist George Panagakos and bass player Chris Crosby. With their new LET YOURSELF DOWN EP, the band delivers a powerful and soulful debut that is sure to please fans of guitar-driven rock the world over. LET YOURSELF DOWN features three remarkable songs, each with its own personality. The title track is an anthem of loss and redemption, “Beat Me” is a fast and sexy powerhouse and “Imprint” is an intimate epic of love and longing. LET YOURSELF DOWN releases worldwide on February 1st, 2021 through Hice Records.

Chris and George, both multi-instrumentalists, have been writing and recording together for years. They’ve explored many musical genres, but the common threads of their memorable and melodic compositions and George’s versatile, unique and powerful voice are always present. In 2019 they decided to quench their thirst for rock and FEVERSEED was born.

The two best friends worked on the material for their new band from November 2019 through August 2020, and by September 2020 they had chosen the three songs that best represented the scope of Feverseed’s sound. With George producing, singing and playing rhythm guitar & piano and Chris playing bass & guitar, they were ready to hit the studio and record their debut. To complete the band’s lineup, they were joined by lead guitarist Wibbus and drummer Drew Bertrand shortly before recording commenced.

LET YOURSELF DOWN was recorded in October 2020 at Suffolk Recording Studios, mixed by Chris Laybourne at Coop Studios and mastered by Roger Lian. The recording and mixing process was very much a group effort. As George puts it, “While I did serve as producer of this EP and had a clear idea of what I wanted these songs to sound like, it was a very collaborative experience. I’m just a piano player who decided to pick up a guitar and rock. Chris and Wibbus are very much responsible for the guitar sound we achieved on the EP. Same goes for the drums. I told Drew what I was looking for, and he chose the right drum kit and set up the microphones perfectly to get me just what I needed. As far as the mix, Chris Laybourne was invaluable at taking my rough mixes and bringing them to life so beautifully, achieving the sound for these songs that I had envisioned from the very beginning.”

The new FEVERSEED debut LET YOURSELF DOWN EP releases worldwide on February 1st, 2021 through Hice Records. The band is currently preparing a North American tour in support of their debut release when live performance restrictions are lifted.

US Review: EVAN WARDELL “IN LIKE A LION // OUT LIKE A LIGHT”

Click here to listen!

Click here to read more!

“Evan Wardell’s debut In Like a Lion // Out Like a Light via Moo Moo Records glows with San Francisco’s surreal sonic luminescence, a perfect soundtrack for this bizarre year. Wardell’s self-produced songwriting wraps his Martha’s Vineyard roots into an indie-rock palette that feels like something completely new.

What makes this record so good is its relatability. The tempo changes of the acoustic-guitar-driven “Get By” set it among the best songs of the year. Angry, pensive, fearful, depressed; 2020 has helped us get in touch with our humanity. So thank you, Evan Wardell, for putting words and music to the crazy. Clearly following his passion, Evan Wardell’s In Like a Lion // Out Like a Light is my favorite album this year.

-Lisa Whealy, IndependentClauses.com

An export from the island of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, EVAN WARDELL is a musician, producer, and audio engineer now based in San Francisco. Written, performed, produced, recorded, and mixed entirely by EVAN WARDELL (he even created the cover art), the new album IN LIKE A LION // OUT LIKE A LIGHT is a hook-laden indie rock masterpiece that illustrates the pain of addiction, heartbreak, and the all too common struggle just to get out of bed in the morning. Released online everywhere music is streamed and sold on October 30, 2020, IN LIKE A LION // OUT LIKE A LIGHT is the debut solo full-length album from EVAN WARDELL.

EVAN WARDELL moved to San Francisco in 2009 to study audio engineering and immerse himself in city life. Since then he has gone from recording in his bedroom to becoming the musical manager at Pianofight (the coolest indie venue in San Francisco), engineering at the historic and renowned Hyde Street Studios, and mixing front of house for audiences of hundreds of people. IN LIKE A LION // OUT LIKE A LIGHT represents at least seven years of songwriting and recording, and as a result offers a chronicle of how EVAN WARDELL has changed over that time as a person, as a songwriter, and even as an audio engineer. Evan says, “To me the album feels like the culmination of everything I’ve ever learned, and the beginning of something bigger and better.”

A fixture in the San Francisco music scene, you can find EVAN WARDELL rocking out with the psychedelic Western outfit The Green Door (new album Wolf In The Fold out now!), or in normal times playing his saddest tunes for his bi-weekly live show Sadurday Happy Hour at Pianofight, the city’s coolest hub for performing artists, where he also acts as Musical Technical Manager. EVAN WARDELL was also a member of the SF band Biv and the Mnemonics, whose album The Pace was released to critical acclaim in 2013.

Singing Star JENNIFER SARAN Looks to Better Days with Her Song and Video “(DON’T LET IT BE) A SAD OL’ CHRISTMAS”

Watch the video HERE.

The swinging track and heartwarming video serve as the perfect coda to 2020: We can get through this together

For the world at large, 2020 hasn’t been the best of times. Still, there is light in the darkness, and what better way to celebrate better days ahead than with a fun and frolicking holiday song? That’s just what internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Jennifer Saran has done with her smashing single, “(Don’t Let It Be) a Sad Ol’ Christmas.”

Saran’s irresistibly hooky jingle-jangle gem, co-written and produced by superstar producer Narada Michael Walden (Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey), is accompanied by an exuberant and heartwarming video – complete with cozy holiday revelers, a smiling pooch and even a piano-playing cat – produced by filmmaker Andrew Thomas. For “ring out the old (thank goodness) and ring in the new” holiday cheer, it hits all the marks.

“We can be honest – it’s been a terribly exhausting year in many ways,” says Saran. “We’re all feeling a level of PTSD, but I also think we have a lot of positives to close the 2020 on, and that really comes through in the video. We’ve gone through hardships and struggles remain, but we’ve already overcome so much. Millions of people are looking forward to a fresh start in 2021. We’ve been tested tremendously, but there’s a feeling of relief – we’re going to get through this.”

Director Thomas agrees, saying, “Americans have a remarkable ability to embrace joy in even the darkest times ­– not as a denial of pain, but as reassurance that love is stronger than suffering. In that sense, ‘(Don’t Let It Be) a Sad Ol’ Christmas’ is a declaration of common cheer in a landscape of loss. Especially in 2020, this resilience has never been more critical to the nation’s emotional health.”

For Saran, the hopeful message of the song and video carries particular resonance. A North American artist who lives in Hong Kong, she came down with COVID earlier this year and spent a month in hospital isolation. “It was a while before I could get my double negative test – they’re very strict about that in Hong Kong,” she says. “What’s amazing is how you appreciate the little things in life once you go through something like that. Everything you took for granted feels better and more meaningful.”

Screen Shot 2020-12-24 at 1.50.53 PM

“(Don’t Let It Be) a Sad Ol’ Christmas” isn’t Saran’s first trip down holiday lane. In 2015 she turned critics’ heads with Merry Christmas, You Are Loved, also produced by Walden, and two years later she re-teamed with the veteran hitmaker for Souful Christmas, a delightful set of gems which saw her joined by the Temptations on the single, “Christmas Lover.”

Saran and Walden wrote “(Don’t Let It Be a) Sad Ol’ Christmas” right after the two finished Saran’s breakthrough jazz EP Smoky Nights. “There was a fair share of melancholy tunes on that record, so when I talked to Narada about doing a Christmas song, I said, ‘I don’t want anything sad, not this year.’ Narada recalled how his grandmother, whenever something went wrong, used to say, ‘It’s going to be a sad ol’ Christmas.’ The two of us laughed and said, ‘Well, that’s it then. We’re not going to have a sad ol’ Christmas.’ We had our title.”

Saran also notes that the song was written in the days following her mother’s passing. “I felt it was important to say, ‘Let’s try to be happy’ for the rest of my family, because we still had one another,” she says. “Tragically, many families are experiencing their own losses because of COVID. I would never minimize their pain; I fully acknowledge it. At the same time, it’s vital that we try to look for joy wherever we can and be grateful for what we do have.”

Musically, “(Don’t Let It Be) a Sad Ol’ Christmas” is a masterstroke – it’s kitschy, tongue-in-cheek jazz set in a smoke-filled nightspot, full of swanky horn pizzazz and the familiar jingling bells befitting any holiday standard. Saran’s performance is bravura stuff. Singing in a rich and radiant style, she draws listeners in: “Now we all wanna celebrate/ though we can’t always get a break/ but we all have to try and make – Christmas a Thing.”

“I think it’s a great message for any year, but it’s especially important this year,” Saran says. “The video speaks to that notion: We’ve been through so much together and we do have troubled times ahead, but we have the ability to choose to be positive, and that’s always what works.”

Belgium Review: THE WALK-A-BOUT “20/20”

Click here to listen!

Click here to read more at MusicInBelgium.net!

Translated from French: “I must admit that it was a pleasure to discover this very coherent album from the point of view of sound and instrumental mastery, seduced by its variety of styles, the warmth of the voice and the expertise of the arrangements. The boys of The Walk-A-Bout display here a great musical experience that puts them at ease in all genres, whether it is Americana (ʺVictory Parade,” ʺTale of the Vibe Riderʺ), blues (ʺDate Nut Porridgeʺ), funk (ʺTimelessʺ), ballad (ʺI Amʺ), Santana-esque afro-rock (ʺGet Me to the Stationʺ), power folk (ʺHeroʺ) or progressive rock (ʺDark Roadsʺ), and even a little heavier (ʺTrash Talkin’ʺ).

Offering an anthology of classic songs in classic genres (between Steely Dan and the Dave Matthews Band, let’s say), The Walk-A-Bout nevertheless manages to assert its own personality thanks to the technical touch and the feeling of its members. This is undoubtedly what is called talent.”

-MusicInBelgium.net

𝐔𝐍𝐏𝐑𝐄𝐂𝐄𝐃𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐄𝐃 𝐂𝐇𝐀𝐑𝐓 𝐏𝐄𝐑𝐅𝐎𝐑𝐌𝐀𝐍𝐂𝐄!

With an unprecedented SEVEN SINGLES on the ROOTS MUSIC REPORT radio charts at once, the album made it up to #3 on the RMR Alt-Rock chart and #16 on the Rock chart!

Congratulations to Independent Distribution Collective band The Walk-A-Bout for charting #3 on the RMR Alternative Rock charts and #13 on the RMR Rock charts! Nice to see their album still getting great exposure and attention for one of the best albums of 2020 with an unprecedented seven singles on the Roots Music Report radio charts at once.

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 Lian20/20 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” SullivanKevin AndersonDrew 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!

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!
