Brittany Howard’s Debut Solo

Brittany Howard ߝ lead vocalist/guitarist for the chart-topping, GRAMMY winning bandAlabama Shakes will release her debut solo album, Jaime, on September 20 via ATO Records. Today, she shared the lead off track, History Repeats. Download History Repeats HERE and listen HERE. Pre-order Jaime HERE.

History Repeats is as much a personal song as it is a song about us as a human species. Our times of success may propel us forward, but our repeating failures hold us back from evolving into harmony,Éd; says Brittany Howard, who posted her mission statement for the album earlier today. See below for links to her social media.

Howard will support the album with a North American tour, which includes two-night stands at intimate venues in Asheville, NC, Washington, DC and Los Angeles. The headline run will also include shows at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville (August 19) and New York City’s Beacon Theatre (September 24). See below for full itinerary. Howard and her band made their live debut last week at the prestigious Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

The fan ticket pre-sale begins today at 10:00 AM local time. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, June 28, at 10:00 AM local time unless otherwise noted below. Every online ticket purchased for U.S. dates on the fall tour will include a CD of the new album, Jaime.

Citi is the official pre-sale credit card of the Brittany Howard 2019 North American tour. As such, Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase pre-sale tickets beginning today at 10:00 AM through Thursday, June 27, at 10:00 PM local time through Citi EntertainmentSM. For complete pre-sale details visit www.citientertainment.com.

Howard recorded Jaime after a cross country drive that took her from Nashville to a small house in Topanga, CA a rustic Los Angeles county town wedged between the mountains and the beach. She titled the album after her sister, who taught her to play the piano and write poetry, and who died of cancer when they were still teenagers.

The title is in memoriam, and she definitely did shape me as a human being, saysBrittany Howard. But, the record is not about her. It’s about me. I’m pretty candid about myself and who I am and what I believe. Which is why I needed to do it on my own.

While Howard admits it was daunting, stepping out alone from her work with Alabama Shakes and revealing so much of herself, it was a necessary step. I turned 30 and I was like, What do I want the rest of my life to look like? she recalls. Do I want to play the same songs until I’m 50 and then retire, or do I do something that’s scarier for me? Do I want people to understand me and know me, do I want to tell them my story? I’m very private, but my favorite work is when people are being honest and really doing themselves.

She brought a handful of finished songs into engineer Shawn Everett’s L.A. studio. Once she started working with the band she had assembled a core group of Alabama Shake’s bassist Zac Cockrell, innovative jazz-based keyboard player Robert Glasper and drummer Nate Smith the music started to take shape. Different sounds and approaches began to emerge. Howard examines spiritual ritual on He Loves Me and celebrates love with Georgia. Goat Head is informed by the experience of growing up as a mixed-race child in the South while 13th Century Metal grew out of Glasper and Smith jamming in the studio. See below for track listing.

As the front woman and guitarist for Alabama Shakes, Howard has become one of music’s most celebrated figures. The band has won four GRAMMY Awards and topped the Billboard 200 with the Gold-certified Sound & Color, the follow-up to its Platinum debut album, Boys & Girls. Howard has performed everywhere from the Obama White House to the main stage at Lollapalooza, where she sang with Paul McCartney at his invitation. In between albums and tours with Alabama Shakes, Howard grows restless. To me, there is no time off  I’m a creative person and I need to create, or I just feel weird, not fully human, she says. She’s channeled that relentless creativity into Jaime, her most revelatory work yet.

With the North American leg of her first-ever headline tour selling out during pre-sale and her European leg selling out during on-sale, Kim has moved many of her Broken Tour performances to larger venues, including all European dates. The tour, which kicks off in Nashville on June 11, will see Kim hit major cities in the U.S. and Europe including New York, London, Paris, Los Angeles, and Berlin. Following a performance at the sold-out World Pride NYC this June 29, the European leg will begin in August with appearances at Leeds Festival and Manchester Pride. PRESS HERE for live updates and tickets, available now.

“All I Do Is Cry” follows on the heels of “Broken” (PRESS HERE to listen), which catapulted into the Top 10 on the iTunes Pop Chart and introduced a more grounded, personal sound for Kim, blending her trademark pop with trap beats and elements of hip-hop. Kim also recently released singles “Blow It All,” “Got My Number,” and “Sweet Spot.”

Kim is set to continue a trajectory that saw her recognized as one of music’s most promising new artists, Kim has accumulated over 140 million global streams, broke into Top 40 radio with her pop hit “Heart to Break,” and opened for Troye Sivan‘s nationwide tour. 

Earlier this year, Kim headlined Sydney Mardi Gras and sold out her first headline shows in New York City, Los Angeles, Sydney, and Melbourne. While in Australia, she also made a pop-up appearance to perform alongside Rita Ora on her Phoenix World Tour. She was also recently nominated for GLAAD’s Outstanding Music Artist award. 

From her #1 Spotify Global Viral 50 bop “I Don’t Want It At All” to her Top 40 radio hitHeart to Break,” Kim‘s undeniable voice and string of irresistible singles have earned her recognition as one to watch by the likes of NY Times, Billboard, Paper, V Magazine, Noisey, Out, I-D, Refinery29, Popcrush and many more. Chosen as a Spotify RISE artist, Kim became one of New York Fashion Week’s most buzzed-about names, released her critically-acclaimed, Halloween-inspired mixtape TURN OFF THE LIGHT, VOL. 1 featuring Elvira, and joined Charli XCX on her Pop 2mixtape before collaborating with Cheat Codes on “Feeling of Falling.”

Billy Raffoul Releases “Lovely”

Emerging singer/songwriter Billy Raffoul releases new song “Lovely” today on Interscope Records. “Lovely” was written by Raffoul and produced by Greg Kurstin and Raffoul.  “Lovely” is available now at all digital retailers and will appear on Raffoul’s forthcoming debut album which will be released later this year. 

Lovely is a sad happy song about missed opportunity,” says Raffoul.

Raffoul will hit the road this spring first heading out on a handful of dates opening for Julia Michaels, then supporting Parachute on their North American tour.  The extensive run of dates with Parachute will bring Raffoul to New York’s Gramercy Theater, Nashville’s Cannery Ballroom, D.C.’s 9:30 Club, Boston’s Royale as well as two dates at Los Angeles’ Troubadour.   With his debut album due out soon, he’s looking forward to widening the reach of his live show, a stripped-back performance currently featuring only Raffoul, his guitar, and his drum pedals.

Growing up in the small farming town of Leamington, Ontario, Raffoul first started writing songs at age 10, thanks in no small part to the influence of his father—a musician who’s opened for everyone from Joe Cocker to Bon Jovi. After landing his first paying gig—playing to long-haul drivers at a local truck stop—Raffoul began playing at nearby bars and clubs at age 16, often driving into Detroit for shows. He eventually connected with a manager and moved down to Nashville to push forward with his music career. Soon after scoring a deal with Interscope Records, Raffoul released the critically hailed song “Driver” and followed that with his debut EP 1975 in June 2018.  Critical praise followed with NPR raving, “Billy Raffoul has stepped into the spotlight.” Over the past few years, Raffoul has opened for heavyweight artists like, Kings of Leon, X Ambassadors, NEEDTOBREATHE and Kaleo, captivating crowds with his understated yet intensely passionate stage presence.

Maggie Rogers Announces North American Tour Dates

 Just before launching her sold-out spring tour tonight, Maggie Rogers announced a new series of North American dates. The Heard It In A Past Life tour will kick off on July 26 at Thompson’s Point in Portland, ME. The outing will include a two-night stand at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall (October 1 & 2) and shows at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA (September 20), Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (October 15) and ACL Live at The Moody Theater in Austin (October 19).  Empress Of and Jacob Banks will join Rogers as support. Visit https://www.maggierogers.com/live/ for itinerary. The acclaimed producer/songwriter/performer will also play numerous festivals, including Coachella. 

 

Pre-sale tickets for the summer/fall shows go on sale to members of Rogers’ fan club on Monday, March 25th.  The AMEX pre-sale begins on Monday, March 25thand the Spotify pre-sale starts on Wednesday, March 27th.  Tickets go on sale to the general public here on Friday, March 29th, at 10:00 AM local time. AEG Presents will present the majority of Rogers’ fall tour. The remaining dates will be presented by independent promoters. Rogers recently wrapped up a tour of the U.K., Ireland and Europe. At London’s O2 Academy Brixton, Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine joined her onstage for a performance of “Light On.”

 

Rogers is touring in support of her Capitol Records debut album, Heard It In A Past Life, which entered Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart at No. 1 and charted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. It has sold nearly 200,000 album adjusted units to date with cumulative streams across all tracks exceeding 400 million. Her current single, “Light On,” topped Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart for two consecutive weeks. Rogers recently performed “Burning,” another track from the album, on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” View here.

 

In this feature, The New York Times said, “‘Heard It in a Past Life’ is a collection of buoyant electronic pop songs, but the lyrics are unmistakably the work of an introvert struggling to recalibrate.” Rolling Stone awarded the album four stars and hailed it as “a laser focused statement with nary a wasted lyric or synth line.”TIME said, “The album confirms Rogers as a tender but powerful musical force, putting her in the company of a group of solo female artists claiming space outside of the typical machines of pop, country or R&B.” NPR Music noted, “’Heard It In A Past Life’ (is) smart sparkling pop.”

 

Maggie Rogers grew up in Easton, Maryland. After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her critically acclaimed debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading. The BBC, Tidal, Google Play, Vevo, Pandora and numerous publications – including Rolling StoneNYLON, SPINBillboard and more – have tipped her as an artist to watch. NPR named her one of its Favorite Musicians and The New Yorker declares, “Maggie Rogers is an artist of her time.”  Rogers’ television performances include “Saturday Night Live,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Named as the first YouTube Artist On The Rise (AOTR) of 2019, she has also been included in Twitter Music’s #ArtistToFollow, Amazon’s First And Last and Pandora’s Drumbeats programs.

“Death Race For Love” Debut #1 on Billboard 200

Death Race For Love, the second studio album by Chicago artist Juice WRLD, has debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, with 165K equivalent units. Additionally, Death Race For Love marked the second-biggest streaming week of any album released this year, with over 200 million global streams. The album was released March 8 on Grade A Productions/ Interscope Records.

Death Race For Love includes the single “Robbery,” released February 13, which debuted at #27 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and peaked at #2 on the Soundcloud chart. “Robbery” accumulated over 21 million global streams in its first week of release. The album also features the single “Hear Me Calling,” which hit 6.7 million global streams within the first 3 days of its release.

Death Race For Love arrives as the follow-up to Goodbye & Good Riddance, Juice WRLD’s massively successful 2018 debut. Along with his double-platinum single “All Girls Are the Same,” the platinum-certified album features his biggest hit to date: the four-times-platinum “Lucid Dreams,” which earned over a billion total video and audio streams last year. In addition, Goodbye & Good Riddance includes Juice WRLD’s chart-climbing single “Armed and Dangerous.”

Juice WRLD will be performing at this year’s Coachella festival. He will then begin his headlining North American tour on April 25 at the PNE Forum in Vancouver, BC and wrap the tour June 8 at The Bomb Factory in Dallas, TX, with support from Ski Mask The Slump God and The Lyrical Lemonade All-Stars.

ILLENIUM North American Tour

Reaffirming his status as an unprecedented live performer, Denver-based artist Nick Miller—known professionally as ILLENIUM—will grace the stages at two of North America’s most hallowed venues in 2019. He hosts his biggest continental headline show to date at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY on September 21 and launches a two-night stand at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater October 11and 12. A special pre-sale begins tomorrow, March 13, while general on-sale commences March 15. Tickets will be available here: http://illenium.com/tour/. 

In other big news, the critically acclaimed force will unveil an official remix package for his latest single, “Crashing” Featuring Bahari, this Friday March 15. The original version has garnered over 4.3 million Spotify streams and emerged as an emotionally charged fan favorite.

For the remix package, he recruited the talents of a diverse array of producers, including DROELOE, KLOUD, and Rock Mafia. Additionally, the tracklisting showcases a shuddering and stunning stripped take on the song, highlighting the angelic and airy vocal over gorgeous piano. The remixes add a whole new dimension to the tune, which EDM.com dubbed, “yet another instant classic.”

ILLENIUM has ignited some of the biggest stages across the country. His 2018 Awake 2.0 Tour sold out every single date, including three nights at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Auditorium and NYC’s Terminal 5 respectively, and two nights at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. ILLENIUM looks to 2019 with performances at ULTRA Music Festival in Miami, FL on March 30, and Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN on June 16, while his Hakkasan Las Vegas residency continues through August. 

With more music on the way, ILLENIUM stands on the precipice of an historic 2019. Get ready!

ILLENIUM creates immersive emotional experiences, displaying an adeptness for crafting aural arrangements that vary in style, beauty, complexity and depth. With two full-length albums to his credit and sundry singles and remixes, he has surpassed the one billion stream mark across his discography.

His debut album, Ashes, was released to critical acclaim in early 2016. Awake followed in 2017 and hit #1 on in the iTunes Electronic Dance Charts in 12 countries. Named one of the “10 Best Dance/Electronic Albums of 2017” by Billboard, it included such singles as “Feel Good” (with Gryffin featuring Daya) and “Crawl Outta Love.” Praising the album as “a gorgeous collection of future bass, piercing vocals, and barefaced lyrics,” Dancing Astronaut said, “While it might seem premature to call an album a ‘masterpiece,’ no other title would fit Awake so well.” Billboard observed, “The phoenix is ILLENIUM ‘s mascot, and Awake is the emergent moment of that story.”

ILLENIUM’s Awake Live headline tour captivated audiences across the country, and sold out such renowned venues as The Shrine, Terminal 5, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Aragon Ballroom and Red Rocks. His remix of Flume’s “Say It” earned him an Electronic Music Award for “Best Remix” in 2017. ILLENIUM’s recent collaborations include “Don’t Give Up On Me” with Kill The Noise ft. Mako and “Gold (Stupid Love)” with Excision ft. Shallows.

Kevin Garrett Announces North American Tour

Pittsburgh-born and GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Kevin Garrett announces an 18 city headlining North American tour. The run will kick off on April 30th in Philadelphia, PA at The Foundry and wrap on May 31st in Atlanta, GA at Vinyl ATL. Full tour routing below and tickets are on-sale today HERE!

In conjunction with the tour announce, Kevin also drops track “Running From.” The song is the last to be released prior to the release of his debut album HOAX, out next Friday, March 22nd via AWAL. The album is available for pre-order HERE! 

BUY/ STREAM “RUNNING FROM”

Kevin said about the song, “My friend Sean made the initial track with which I wrote this song. Running From at face value is about being taken advantage of, but it’s more an inward reflection on why we back off from time to time and how we hold back with walls we don’t even know we’re building.

Kevin introduced HOAX with the stark and simmering 2018 release of his single In Case I Don’t Feel. Backed by delicately plucked acoustic guitar and plaintive piano, he relays an unfiltered message. He has also recently unveiled tracks “Faith You Might” and “Don’t Rush.”

Noah Kahan New Single

NOAH KAHAN UNVEILS VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “MESS”

TOURING WITH JAMES BAY IN NORTH AMERICA THROUGH MARCH AND WITH DEAN LEWIS IN EUROPE AND THE U.K. IN APRIL

WATCH HERE

Today, Noah Kahan releases the video for his new single, “Mess.” Watch it HERE! Produced by Kahan’s frequent collaborator Joel Little (Lorde, Khalid), the song has already received praise from Billboard, NYLON, Idolator, EARMILK, Baeble, Ones To Watch and more.

Of the inspiration behind the video, Noah says, “I initially called ‘Mess’ ‘Feed the Dogs’ because my pups were a huge part of the inspiration for the tune. When I was in Vermont after high school, they were my only company during what was a lonesome time. With that in mind, I knew I had to make the music video be centered around dogs. Despite my dogs’ jealousy, we got 11 trained professional dogs (who were way more famous than me) for the shoot in LA and shot a video I really loved. Hope you guys like it too!”

“Mess” follows the global success of Kahan’s breakout singles, “Hurt Somebody” and “False Confidence.” With over 200 million global streams to date, “Hurt Somebody” is triple platinum in Australia and gold in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland and New Zealand; and it peaked at #1 on the Top 40 radio charts in Australia for three weeks, making it the third most played song on the Australian airwaves in all of 2018 where Noah has become one of the most buzzworthy new acts. “False Confidence” continues to grow with over 16 million streams to date and peaked in the top 5 at Triple A radio in the U.S.

Noah Kahan is currently on the road with James Bay this month on his North American tour. He will also be joining Dean Lewis on his headline tour in Europe and the U.K. in April. See the full list of upcoming dates below. Tickets are available here

In two short years, music quite literally carried 22-year-old singer, songwriter and artist Noah Kahan around the world—a long way from his native Strafford, VT (pop. 1,045) and the 133-acre tree farm where he resides. On the trip, the alternative troubadour notched an international hit in the form of “Hurt Somebody” [feat. Julia Michaels], while his singles “Young Blood” and “False Confidence” also racked up millions of streams and he sold out headline tours in North America, Europe, and the UK and hit the road with artists like George Ezra and Leon Bridges. Not to mention, he has garnered critical acclaim from Billboard, Stereogum, Clash, Idolator, and more. In the midst of this whirlwind, he assembled his upcoming full-length debut album. The first single “Mess” illuminates his marked growth as a songwriter and storyteller by way of its biting lyrics and undeniable sing-a-long, underscoring a heartwarming and often hilarious portrait of hometown longing.
