THE LONE BELLOW, a rustic Brooklyn trio with bluesy gospel influences, discover the age-old wisdom behind “nice guys finish last” in their video for “You Never Need Nobody.” Soulful vocalist Zach Williams can’t catch his girl’s attention, probably because she’s never known what it’s like to be lonely. Along with Kanene Pipkin (mandolin, vocals) and […]

5GB With Rachel Yamagata; Playing Vinyl, Dec. 12th

Rachael Yamagata has been called ‘the troubadour of heartbreak’ by the press and fans are drawn to her ability to ‘turn emotion into song’.   She’s got the old soul singer songwriter essence that calls upon Todd Rundgren, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, The Carpenters and Elton John and sonically gravitates towards the darker stylings of Nick […]

5GB With John Doyle; Playing Steve’s Live Music, Dec. 5th

The resurgence of traditional Irish music has been called a renaissance — awakening a yearning for identity with a deeply rooted culture of oppression, war, courtship and love, liquor worship and emigration stories honored through song. Dublin-born guitarist and singer-songwriter John Doyle has honored this tradition even as he cultivates it on his latest release […]

Q & A With Andrew Combs; Playing The Earl W/ Duquette Johnson, Dec .7
