ZIPPA DEEDOO What Is/Was/That/This?
The title comes from the chorus of “Song Of Life” . It is a classic rock’n’roll album. Classic if you lived through what has become known as ”the classic rock era” as it rolled out new and even broke onto the beachhead and morphed into punk. That’s the direction Dave Graney and Clare Moore have always been coming from. They have spent their lives schooled by and immersed in rock ‘n’ roll culture. They dived in deep and kept swimming. From the Moodists through the Coral Snakes /White Buffaloes to the mistLY
This is an album with their band, Dave Graney and the mistLY. Stuart Perera has played guitar with them since 1998 and Stu Thomas on bass since 2004.

LIL SKIES DEBUT ALBUM SHELBY

Lil Skies, who recently made waves as he walked in Philipp Plein’s show during New York Fashion Week, joined forces with Lil Pump earlier this week to announce the dates for their 2019 US co-headline tour. 

With over 2 billion streams under his belt, 20-year-old rapper on the rise Lil Skies, who is managed by The Stokey Project which entered into a partnership with Roc Nation this year for management, has been building a massive storm of fans and followers with his angsty brand of high-energy hip hop. Released last January, his critically-acclaimed major label debut mixtape Life Of A Dark Rose was certified Gold by the US RIAA and quickly spawned three singles including Red Roses, Nowadays and Lust . Skies has continued to release a nonstop stream of new music and visuals, most recently holding over his ravenous fans with Real Ties and Name in the Sand, both of which have collectively amassed an extremely impressive 30 million streams in just the past few weeks. Skies hasn’t slowed down in 2019, continuing to release new music including I Know You (feat. Young Pinch)Opps Want Me DeadNo Rest and World Rage, which have collectively been streamed over 200 million times worldwide. Hailed by Rolling StoneBillboardComplexPandora and more as an artist to watch, Lil Skies has an extremely promising year ahead.

Grammy Award winner Gary Clark Jr. releases This Land

TICKETS FOR AUSTRALIAN TOUR ON SALE NOW 

Grammy Award winner Gary Clark Jr. releases his highly anticipated, third full-length studio album This Land. Recorded in Clark’s hometown of Austin, Texas and produced by Clark and Jacob Sciba, This Land finds Clark revealing his most lyrically expressive and musically eclectic body of work to date that harnesses his explosive live energy into every song. Critics have instantly taken This Land to heart. Click HERE to purchase or stream the album.

 

In 2019, Clark is an exceedingly rare figure, a bluesman who has a major-label recording contract and a worldwide audience, one he has built by tearing up stage after stage, show after show. On This Land, his third major-label studio album, his songwriting has caught up with his playing. It has something to do with experience; and it has a lot to do with America in 2019, where division, frustration and seething anger can use an outlet with the historical resonance and emotional depth of the blues.” – Jon Pareles / The New York Times

 

“This Land is something new. The man’s prolific gifts now attached to the material with a far greater purpose than ever before. It’s the great rock-and- roll record you’ve been waiting for.” – Hits Daily Double

 

“Gary Clark Jr. is both of the past and the future…hard-driving riffs mixed with unexpected restraint. And when he sings...light, sweet and resonant.” – Time Magazine

 

“’This Land’… the most important song Clark has ever written. This Land [the album] ranges from Delta blues to dub reggae, Stax-style soul anthems and Prince-like epics, capturing Clark’s promise at a mind-blowing level.” – Rolling Stone

 

Clark recently dazzled during his debut performance on Saturday Night Live, blazing his way through Pearl Cadillac and This Land. Click the links to view and share. The official video for This Land (directed by Savanah Leaf) has almost two million views. Click here to view and share. Leaf has also directed the brand new Clark video for the album track What About Us.  Watch it here.

 

This week, Clark will be the featured guest on SiriusXM’s Howard Stern Show in performance and conversation and will perform live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Gary Clark Jr. will also head over to Comedy Central for his debut appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah for an interview and live performance.
