Veteran rocker, podcast host, songwriter, and Foo Fighters guitar slinger Chris Shiflett is releasing more new solo work this spring, starting today with an inspired country-fied cover of Thin Lizzy’s “Cowboy Song” complete with twanged up twin leads and pedal steel guitar. The track is taken from the forthcoming EP Starry Nights & Campfire Lights, which will be released digitally on March 15.
2024 is already shaping up to be a banner year for Jesse Dayton, who just released "Night Brain" — his blues-rock follow-up to last month's "Baby's Long Gone." Available as both a single and cinematic music video, "Night Brain" arrives weeks before the 66th Grammy Awards, where Death Wish Blues — Dayton's chart-topping collaboration with fellow songwriter and modern-day guitar hero Samantha Fish — has been nominated for Best Contemporary Blues Album. The momentum will continue this spring with the release of Dayton's upcoming solo record, as well as the final leg of the Death Wish Blues world tour.
Today, Nashville’s favorite shapeshifting singularity Aaron Lee Tasjan announced the release of his landmark new album, Stellar Evolution, landing on earth April 12. A celestial collection of sonically expansive anthems, connecting the far away universes of slacker indie rock, hyper-pop and new wave. Produced by Tasjan and Gregory Lattimer, the album showcases an innovative array of shimmering synth, club ready drums and angular guitar, and is undeniably his most realized sonic vision to date. Tasjan has cultivated a storied and outstanding career already, but his forthcoming album Stellar Evolution is just what the title says. A culmination of his fluid artistic expression and his diverse accomplishments, while clearly heading in a brand-new and innovative musical direction. Tasjan also announced his upcoming 2024 headline tour, including dates in New York City, Nashville and Los Angeles.
