Tour-re-force and one of our favorite singer/songwriters, Amanda Ducorbier has released her latest single “Hold On”. Soulful and melodic, “Hold On” puts Amanda’s talent on a pedestal, and it oozes groove. After nearly 3 minutes, I can’t wait to hear more. Check out the single below and swing by the Orpheum Theater’s Ice Pit Lounge to here her perform “Hold On” in person tonight at her official single launch party.
Earlier this year, alt blues powerhouse Blonde Roses released their stellar EP “Hell or High Water”. The moment it was released I made sure to add it to my Apple Music library to swing back to and give it a listen. Life happened, and as other tracks and bands entered the fold, the EP kind of tumbled a bit. I never got a chance to feature it and just lost track of time. Singer/guitarist Molly Portier (who I’ve known since the days of her previous project Wooden Wings) recently reached out to share with me the band’s latest un-released track, “One Ways”.
Alexis Marceaux and Sam Craft, the duo that make up Alexis & The Samurai have recently released their most bombastic record to date in “Move Into View”. Melodic and stereophonic, “Move Into View” truly shows off the range and confidence both Alexis and Sam have in their ability to create their own unique and intoxicating music.
Friends of the program, Tysson have recently released their long-awaited and bombastic soundscape EP this week. The 4 song release shows the duo's evolution over the last few years as well as their ability to refine and perfect their sound in an authentic way.
I have had the distinct pleasure of watching & photographing singer/songwriter, and pal Robin Barnes, grow and morph into the artist we have all come to love and respect. Several years ago we met over coffee and she posed for one of my first of many street style profiles along Oak St. Always beaming and the consummate professional, Robin has since released her first EP, toured the world, and has finally found her true groove in her latest and most ambitious EP yet, Songbird Sessions. I’ve only heard a little bit of her latest jazz infused grooves, but the musical path she’s heading down is one of sultry maturity, and…
The Music Box Village is one of the coolest and most unique events/community/dreams in New Orleans to date. Started in 2011 while resting in place in a Bywater backyard, The Music Box, produced by the not-for-profit collective New Orleans Airlift, was the most talked about event/experience of last year. Hosted inside City Park in 2015, The Music Village have finally found a permanent place they can call home. Now with over 55,000 square feet to work with and the space and tools etc to make it all come to fruition, they need our help to continue making magic. With that said, it takes a village (punny huh?) to make the magic…
Legitimately one of the most exciting singer/songwriters to come out of New Orleans in a long time, Kristin Diable has crafted a soulful and sophisticated sound all her own.
Last weekend, on the second and final weekend of Jazz Fest 2016, I checked off longstanding item off the bucket list...see The Roots play live. Last Saturday morning I did just that.
Actor/Comedian David Cross took the stage at the storied Orpheum Theater this week.
