Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio

“A good time romp…raucous blues with high-energy soloing, mixtures of careening slide and razor- edged bursts, all delivered with unflagging enthusiasm and wit.” –ROLLING STONE “Rousing, down-home, feel-good music…spunky rhythms and razor-sharp slide…Bishop’s a superb guitarist of great strength and skill…a rockin’ good time.” –GUITAR WORLD On the title track of his new album, Can’t Even Do Wrong Right, legendary blues guitarist, songwriter and singer ELVIN BISHOP spins a tale of a not-too-smart criminal getting caught by his own foolish missteps. The shaggy dog story, fueled by Bishop’s down-home delivery and deep blues slide guitar, is an affirmation of the Chicago Sun-Times’ ebullient praise: “It’s impossible not to like Bishop. He’s always singing something lowbrow and uplifting.” With his buoyant and deceptively loose-sounding ensemble behind him, he’s also playing some of the most spirited and distinctive blues slide guitar today. Can’t Even Do Wrong Right, with hilariously spot-on cover artRead More

Dead Winter Carpenters

Hailing from North Lake Tahoe, CA, americana/roots rock band Dead Winter Carpenters has built a reputation for pouring their heart and soul into each performance. Over the past decade, the band has worked hard to position themselves, wrote Portland Metronome, “at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do.” That progressive nature shines through loud and clear on the band’s latest release “Sinners ‘n’ Freaks” which debuted on April 24th, 2020. The 5-song EP is DWC’s fifth studio effort and coincided with the band’s 10th anniversary. The release is a celebration of the hard roads previously traveled and the road that lies ahead. Recorded in January 2020 at Baxter’s Ranch in Auburn, CA, the band found a masterful ally with a keen ear and sensibility in studio owner/engineer Matt Baxter. Born of an organic, roots based approach, Sinners ‘n’ Freaks rings true to the Sierra Nevada foothills. TheRead More
