Marc Broussard
Marc Broussard
Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of channeling the spirits of classic R&B, rock and soul into contemporary terms. This gift has been a matter of common knowledge since 2002, when Broussard released his debut album, Momentary Setback, which he recorded and released independently at age 20. It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt "Johnny B. Goode" onstage at age 5 while sitting in with his father's band - Louisiana Hall of Fame guitarist Ted Broussard’s - legendary The Boogie Kings.

In 2004, he released his major-label debut; Carencro, after the Louisiana town where he was born and raised, and its thematic centerpiece was a hickory-smoked slab of Bayou soul called “Home.” That album and the subsequent ones that followed revealed Broussard as an old-school Southern soul singer blessed with a rarefied talent and innate stylistic and emotional authenticity.

On April 5th, Marc Broussard will be releasing a live album Home (The Dockside Sessions). Broussard wanted to offer his fans something different prior to the release of his next studio album. Rather than a standard greatest hits package or a perfunctory live album, he had something different in mind. His upcoming release Home (The Dockside Sessions) accomplishes both, but in a unique way. It provides the audio tracks from the various videos Broussard has compiled over the course of his career, all of them recorded live at Dockside Studios near his Lafayette Louisiana home. The album includes a telling remake of Broussard’s signature song -- “Home.”


Although each of the 15 songs represents Broussard’s best known material and fan favorites from throughout his storied career, Home (The Dockside Sessions) is more than simply a reminder of past glories. The material has been retooled and reinterpreted in stripped down aural settings, the result of which provides an intimate opportunity to share the inherent emotion Broussard invested in each of these soulful sessions.

While all the songs resonate as essential additives in Broussard’s repertoire -- one informed by soul, blues, ballads and Americana – there is one song in particular that is of special significance to the artist himself. “Home,” the album’s title track, dates back to the dawn of his career. Once an anthem of hope and determination, it’s come to represent the tack and trajectory of both his life and career. Now, however, he sees the song in a different way, one that’s reflected in his earnest and emotive delivery.

“This song has given me a career,” Broussard remarks. “Without it, I don’t think I’d be where I am. However, when I hear the original, I hear a boy trying to sound like a big man. It needed a redo; something swampier and dirtier than before. Something that showed its age a little more honestly.”

Likewise, the connection with these videos is clear; these live performance videos have become an eagerly anticipated, ongoing endeavor. Collectively, they have garnered more than 30 million plays. His acoustic version of the classic “Cry to Me” has gained over 11 million views alone on YouTube.

Broussard is currently on his 2019 Winter/Spring Tour which includes a date at this year's New Orleans Jazz Fest on May 2nd. Tour dates below with more to be added soon. For more information visit www.marcbroussard.com.
Yoke Lore
Yoke Lore
“A ‘yoke’ is something that holds things together. ‘Lore’ means a set of stories or a collection of ideas about an event, time, or culture,” explains Adrian Galvin, when asked about the meaning behind his musical moniker Yoke Lore. New York indie pop project Yoke Lore is the solo musical venture of Adrian Galvin, previously of Yellerkin and Walk the Moon. Yoke Lore layers the harmonies of Panda Bear, the soulful beats of M83, and the modern pop of Blackbird to tell “the stories of how we are bound.” Galvin’s songs combine echoing waves of banjo, vocals, and percussion to create arresting pop music with tactile candor and conviction. Galvin continues, “I want to tell stories about how memories, relationships, apprehensions, and big dreams hold us together. I think that exploring universal experiences both emotional and spiritual are best conveyed through the potency of personal stories. And music wields a power to render the very personal, epic.”

After putting out three acclaimed EPs which gained him a loyal following -- Far Shore (2016), Goodpain(2017), and Absolutes (2018) -- 2019’s Meditations strips several of Galvin’s familiar songs to their core by trading the usual electronic elements for arrangements of piano, horns, and strings. “In re-interpreting it, I wanted to clear out everything but the song itself, so that people to whom it means something can glean a more refined experience of the song itself. Clear out the clutter, unburden yourself,” Galvin explains of “Beige (unburdened),” the reimagined version of his song “Beige” from the Goodpain EP. In addition to these re-interpretations, listeners will also find two new studio songs on the new Meditations EP.

2017, the year the Goodpain EP was released, was a turning point for Yoke Lore. His stand-out single “Goodpain” roused fans old and new -- including Spotify, who invited Galvin to their New York City studio to record an acoustic version of the track, as well as two covers for his Spotify Singles: “Last Christmas” by Wham! and “Truly Madly Deeply” by Savage Garden. His holiday song graced Spotify’s Holiday Singles playlist alongside covers by Demi Lovato, Sam Smith, and Miley Cyrus. Yoke Lore also found an unexpected new fan in popstar Taylor Swift, who added his cover of “Truly Madly Deeply” to her “Songs Taylor Loves” Spotify playlist in 2018.

Three years of non-stop touring (supporting acts like Bastille, LP, Frenship, Overcoats, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and Aquilo) and playing festivals worldwide (SXSW, The Great Escape, Field Trip, Billboard Hot 100) led to Yoke Lore’s first US headline tours, selling out shows all over the country. In 2019, Yoke Lore will make appearances at BottleRock Napa Valley and Firefly Festival, following an east coast headline run and some European dates as well.

The new acoustic EP, Meditations, is due out June 2019.
*repeat repeat
*repeat repeat
On their new album Glazed, *repeat repeat deliver a batch of songs entirely true to the album’s title: sugary and sticky and impossibly shiny, all glistening harmonies and candy-coated hooks. But beneath the gloss lies something more jarring and jagged, a raw vitality generated by the Nashville band’s buzzy rhythms and blistering guitar work. Fortified by the distinctly thoughtful songwriting of husband-and-wife duo Jared and Kristyn Corder, the result is an album that finds an unlikely power in irrepressible sweetness.
The follow-up to 2017’s Floral Canyon, Glazed marks a period of major growth for *repeat repeat, who’ve spent the better part of the last few years touring, highlighted by a 2018 debut at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts festival that saw them lavishly praised by Rolling Stone, who hailed them as “Most Enthusiastic Rockers”. In bringing the new album to life, *repeat repeat worked closely with producer Patrick Carney (drummer for The Black Keys and producer for such artists as Arctic Monkeys, Black Lips, and Tobias Jesso Jr.), immersing themselves in a more rigorous songwriting and recording process than they’d ever attempted before.

“Patrick was deeply involved in every aspect of the album, and it sparked this whole new level of creativity in all of us,” says Jared, who serves as lead vocalist, guitarist, and main songwriter for *repeat repeat. “He was adamant about pushing us and working on something until we got it exactly right. It was really challenging at times, but I think it taught us how to make the best song that we can possibly make.”

In another monumental shift, Kristyn expanded her role far beyond anchoring *repeat repeat’s bold harmonies, playing keyboards, and directing the band’s design aesthetic, moving on to writing guitar parts and lyrics for the band. On lead single “Hi, I’m Waiting,” the increased depth of their collaboration reveals itself in tender expressions of affection, unfolding in swinging melodies and crunchy guitar riffs and lyrics capturing a quiet sensitivity (e.g., “You say when you want me/I want you when you do”). “So many love songs come from a place of demanding love, or feeling like it’s owed to you,” Jared points out. “I liked the idea of conveying a different romantic sentiment, especially as a straight white male—I mean, the least we can do as dudes is wait.”

All throughout Glazed, *repeat repeat bring a certain defiance to their songs, a passionate refusal to let the world crush their optimism. With its dizzying textures and driving beat, “Head On” makes a glorious case for defining your own destiny. Darkly charged but no less exuberant, “Apocalyptic” finds the band facing a doomsday scenario with unabashed romanticism (“The idea behind that song is, ‘If this is the end of the world, let’s go down holding hands,’” notes Kristyn). And on “Pressure,” *repeat repeat lament the endless stresses of modern times, while their determined vocals and urgent guitar work speak to sheer indomitability.

At the heart of Glazed is the kinetic tension that’s fueled *repeat repeat since the band’s inception; the wildly differing sensibilities of Jared (a former punk-rock kid raised on Bad Religion and Black Flag) and Kristyn (a California girl who grew up on the Beach Boys and the Mamas and the Papas). “This band is truly a combination of Jared’s most authentic and creative self and my most authentic and creative self, and how those two things combine to make something new,” says Kristyn. But despite their undeniable chemistry, the two initially had no intentions of forming a band together. Meeting soon after Jared moved to Nashville, the couple got engaged several months later, as Jared first set about getting *repeat repeat off the ground. It wasn’t until Jared teamed up with producer Gregory Lattimer and set to work on the band’s first album that Kristyn made her way into the lineup.

“Gregory told me that the most punk-rock thing you can do is write a good love song, and I took that to heart and started writing all these songs about our relationship,” Jared recalls. “I knew I wanted a female singer in the band so I had Kristyn on a couple demos, and as soon as Gregory heard them he said, ‘I think you just found your girl singer.’ It all just took off from there.” Adds Kristyn: “ I have a performing arts degree, but being in a band isn’t an adventure I necessarily saw myself going on. Joining *repeat repeat has certainly made everything so much more fun, so maybe it’s something I was subconsciously moving toward the whole time.”

Through the years, the duo’s singular dynamic has manifested in *repeat repeat’s magnetic stage presence, with Jared bringing a joyfully rebellious spirit and Kristyn channeling a subtle effervescence. “The music we make is really an extension of our life together,” says Jared. “A day on the road is no different from a day on our honeymoon.” To that end, the title to Glazed partly nods to a greeting card Jared gave to Kristyn on a recent anniversary. “It was a picture of donuts and the message said, ‘You’re a rainbow sprinkle in a sea of glazed,’” Jared explains. “I thought that was a really sweet sentiment, but there’s also a double meaning to it: the world right now has such a frenetic energy, and it makes people kind of glaze over after a while. We wanted to create something that takes you out of that reality—music that makes you feel hopeful and positive and empowered, and just completely leads with love.”
Shelly Fairchild
Shelly Fairchild
Shelly Fairchild isn’t new to the industry – but she’s far from old news.

A staple in the Nashville music community, Fairchild hit the scene to much acclaim with her Columbia Records debut album Ride. The project introduced the young artist’s soulful, gospel-tinged brand of alternative country and spawned a Top 40 hit with “You Don’t Lie Here Anymore.” She toured with some of the biggest names in the format, including Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Tim McGraw, and began to dig her roots in the industry. She again found success in her second release, Ruby’s Money, which came steeped in a thick groove with elements of funk – but it was Buffalo, her crowd-funded 2017 release, that marks a milestone in her life and career.

“I’m sincerely grateful for both the good and bad things that have happened in my life. Everyone that I’ve met and worked with over the 20 years that I’ve lived in Nashville has made me who I am, and I will always carry that in my soul,” says Fairchild.
The Jackson, Miss. native started the project in May 2014, launching a PledgeMusic campaign in the hopes that she would find support of her endeavor – and after reaching her goal in just two days, she realized she had. Fairchild's 3rd full length studio record was fully funded and buoyed by the faith of her friends, family and fans.

The next two years saw Fairchild working with some of her most inspirational industry co-writers. “House on Fire,” an aching ballad reflecting on the weight of one’s past, was the first song that she remembers finishing and feeling confident that it deserved a spot on her record. Co-written by Fairchild along with Lisa Carver and Travis Meadows, the track features subtle but classic country instrumentation and the soft harmonies of one of her favorite bands, the Fairground Saints.

From there the singer/songwriter continued to pen songs that she felt carried an important message to either herself or the world around her. Guided by Jeremy Lister and Carey Ott, Fairchild recorded eight of her co-written tracks for the record that would become known to her fans as 'Buffalo'. Though she tackled some serious topics in her writing, Fairchild felt extremely uplifted by her own work and that of others.

“I love singers and songwriters,” she smiles. I love to have camaraderie and deep friendships with great singers and musicians. I feel like our community in Nashville is so rich and some of my favorite voices are my friends. I am so fortunate to have worked with so many great artists on Buffalo like Wendy Moten, Lucie Silvas, K.S. Rhoads, Fairground Saints, and of course Carey & Jeremy. My heart felt like it was going to explode by the end of the recording process."

Not only does Buffalo emphasize its diversity by featuring guest vocalists, but it also highlights a wide array of musical styles and influences.

“There are a lot of different elements to the music that I make,” says Fairchild. “How do you describe some of the best bands that you know? They ended up on pop radio or on country radio, but are they really that kind of act? I have so many influences and I love having them show up in my songs. It feels like that kind of music lasts longer, because it feels real.”
As for the name of her last full length album to date, Fairchild says, "In many Native American cultures, the buffalo is a symbol of gratitude and abundance. I am from Choctaw ancestry and I completely connect with the idea that though buffalo carry a lot on their shoulders, their horns are always pointing up to the sky. There’s always this hope that the weight will be lifted."

A longtime hidden gem in the trove of Nashville musicians, Fairchild continues to keep her head and her heart pointing up to the sky. Between singing background vocals for the likes of Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Martina McBride, Crystal Gayle (to name a few), appearing as a regular on The Grand Ole Opry, writing songs for film and television, touring across the country and continuously working on future projects, it is clear she is just getting started.

“At times I’ve gotten down about my own path, but when I really take a good look at it – it’s not just full of detours and dead ends,” she said. “It’s a wide path, and it’s full of so many spontaneous and amazing things.”
