Acclaimed country band Old Dominion announce that their highly-anticipated sophomore album Happy Endings is set to debut on August 25th via RCA Nashville.

Lead singer Matthew Ramsey says of the new album, “We are so excited to release our second album! We’ve grown so much as a band and as songwriters over the last 2 years, and we think the songs on Happy Endings really showcase that.  We cannot wait to share these new stories. August 25 cannot come fast enough!”

 

Proving that they are not your average country band, Old Dominion blends old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into radio-friendly, hook-heavy pop nuggets. The band has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound. The band released their first full length album Meat and Candy, which was recently named RIAA-certified GOLD and called a “deceptively smart, occasionally cheeky, stellar debut,” by Entertainment Weekly. The debut album produced their PLATINUM tracks “Break Up With Him” and “Snapback.”  The tracks were both the #1 country song of the year in 2016 in Canada: “Break Up With Him” on the BDS chart and “Snapback” on the Mediabase chart. Their single “Song For Another Time” also hit No. 1 the on U.S. Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts.

 

In 2016, the band was notably named ACM New Group of the Year, ACCA Breakthrough Group of the Year, AIMP Songwriter Artist of the Year and Music Row Breakthrough Artist of the Year. Old Dominion consists of lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers.

LUKE COMBS’ “HURRICANE” SOARS INTO NO.1

LUKE COMBS’ “HURRICANE” SOARS INTO NO.1

AT U.S. COUNTRY RADIO & NO. 3 AT CANADIAN COUNTRY RADIO TODAY

Fastest debut artist to No. 1 at U.S. Country radio since 2015

 Combs receives 2017 CMT MUSIC AWARD nomination

for BREAKTHROUGH VIDEO OF THE YEAR

LUKE COMBS

Nashville, Tenn. – River House Artists/Columbia Nashville singer/songwriter Luke Combs’ GOLD-certified smash debut single “Hurricane” stormed into the No. 1 spot at Country radio today in a record-breaking 24 weeks on the Mediabase chart and 30 weeks on the Billboard Country Charts rendering Combs the fastest debut artist to No. 1 at Country radio since 2015.  “Hurricane” jumped to No. 3 at Canadian Country radio from the number 14 position last week. Achieving more than 58 million streams, “Hurricane” marks the first single off the 27 year-old Asheville, North Carolina native’s debut album This One’s For You releasing on June 2 which has been dubbed “one of the year’s most anticipated albums” by Rolling Stone Country.

While in Key West performing as a part of BMI’s Songwriters Festival this weekend, Combs received the No. 1 news. “It’s surreal to celebrate my first No. 1 down here at the BMI Songwriter’s Festival surrounded by my very own songwriting heroes and friends. Much like the stories of many artists before me, I gambled it all in the name of these songs – dropping out of college to write, playing those songs in three-hour acoustic sets at an empty bar to some rowdy club nights filled with fans and then moving to Nashville to be a part of this incredible songwriting community,” shares Combs. “Songs carried me here and today is a wild dream come true. To my friends at country radio, thank you for believing and spinning. To the fans, you loved ‘Hurricane’ first and most – this one’s for ya’ll.”

As a CMT Listen Up Artist, Combs’ No. 1 chart-topper comes on the heels of his 2017 CMT Award nomination for BREAKTHROUGH VIDEO OF THE YEAR for the “Hurricane” music video which first premiered on CMT.  The storm of “Hurricane” proved to be a multi-faceted force when the official music video crossed more than 25 million views on VEVO last week, making it the No. 7 most-viewed country song of 2017 in the US.

Combs crafted This One’s For You from the mountains of his home state of North Carolina, bringing the songs alive on the road with fans and back in the writer’s rooms of Nashville – creating twelve-tracks that are the culmination of his musicianship and career groundswell the last five years. This One’s For You is available now for pre-order; fans instantly receive five tracks early: “Hurricane,” “Out There,” “Memories Are Made Of,” “Beer Can,” and title track “This One’s For You.” On Friday May 19, fans will receive previously unreleased smoky, groove track “One Number Away.”

Continuing to take his songs to fans, Combs joins line-ups for CMA Music Fest, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and Brantley Gilbert on The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour through September.

LEGENDARY 1980 DIANA ROSS ALBUM, DIANA – THE ORIGINAL CHIC MIX, DEBUTS ON VINYL TODAY

DIANA ROSS

FIRST-EVER VINYL RELEASE ON TWO 45RPM DISCS

Rare Tracks Previously Appeared On 2003 diana: deluxe edition CD Release

21 APRIL 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Sought after by collectors and considered the rarest of Motown’s rare grooves, Diana Ross’ diana – the original CHIC mix, will make its long-awaited debut on vinyl today, April 21, via Motown/UMe/UMGI/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, with a twist: it will be a double-LP set on pink vinyl at 45rpm for maximum fidelity. This edition of diana includes alternate-mix versions of such classics as Upside Down and I’m Coming Out, as envisioned by Chic’s Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame member Nile Rodgers and the late Bernard Edwards.

Following 1979’s collaboration with Ashford & Simpson, which produced her hit The Boss, Diana Ross sought a new sound and hired the hot Chic team of Rodgers and Edwards to compose, play on, and produce her next release. But she and Motown were dissatisfied with the too-Chic-like results, a feeling supported by influential disc jockey Frankie Crocker, who warned Ross the record might fall prey to the disco backlash at the time. Ross turned to Motown’s house engineer, Russ Terrana, the man behind her Supremes and solo hits and much more, and he proceeded to remix the entire album, using alternate vocals or placing her vocals more upfront, creating overall a smoother, “commercial” mix. “Our concept was to make it more avant-garde,” Nile Rodgers later told writer Brian Chin, “and their concept was to make it a little bit more accessible.” The revised diana, her tenth studio album, was released – with a striking, now iconic cover image – on May 22, 1980.

Rodgers and Edwards were not informed and, protesting publicly, wished to take their names off the record. But they cooled off and saw Upside Down – Ross’ own description to Rodgers and Edwards as to what she wanted to do to her career – emerge a #1 smash hit.

Subsequent singles included I’m Coming Out, which went to #5 in the U.S. and became a LGBTQ anthem, while My Old Piano, was a Top 5 hit in the U.K. The album peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200, selling nine million albums worldwide. Soon after Ross moved on to RCA Records in a then-record $20 million deal before returning to Motown in 1989.

Fans now get to hear for the first time on vinyl those original Chic mixes of diana, one of four albums the duo of Rodgers and Edwards produced that year, including Sister Sledge’s Love Somebody Today, Sheila and B. Devotion’s King of the World and their own studio album, Real People. Available on two pink vinyl 45rpm discs, diana – the original CHIC mix, incorporates tracks first heard on diana: deluxe edition, originally issued July 29, 2003.

NORAH JONES RELEASES POWERFUL NEW VIDEO FOR “FLIPSIDE”

Nora Jones

17 APRIL 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Norah Jones has released a powerful new video for “Flipside” from her acclaimed album Day Break, which was released last fall via Blue Note Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.

The video was directed by Sam Kuhn and pays homage to the vital role of protest throughout American history. The most rhythmically charged song on the album it also has a pointed socio-political charge to it. Norah sets a driving bass line with her left hand and Dr. Lonnie Smith’s organ swirls overhead while her vocal builds to a shout at the chorus: “I can’t stand when you tell me to get back / If we’re all free, then why does it seem / We can’t just be

“I was really inspired by the news and the stuff that’s been going on in the world and in this country the last couple years,” Norah says. “It’s been really volatile and crazy, and I was listening to that Les McCann song ‘Compared to What’ and very much influenced by how just grooving and amazing it is but it’s also very political and it’s just from the gut.”

Norah Jones returns to the piano and her jazz roots on her remarkable new album Day Breaks, which once again proves Jones to be her generation’s quintessential American artist, the purveyor of an unmistakably unique sound that weaves together the threads of several bedrock styles of American music: country, folk, rock, soul, jazz. Day Breaks is a kindred spirit to Come Away With Me, though it is unquestionably the work of a mature artist who has lived life and grown immensely in her craft. The album features jazz luminaries including her Blue Note label mates saxophonist Wayne Shorter, organist Dr. Lonnie Smith, and drummer Brian Blade on a 12-song set that presents 9 new originals alongside covers of songs by Horace Silver, Duke Ellington and Neil Young.

NORAH JONES – 2017 CANADIAN TOUR DATES:
5/26/17 – Massey Hall – Toronto, ON
5/27/17 – Massey Hall – Toronto, ON
5/28/17 – Place des Arts – Montreal, QC
