From the album Mother Road
The follow-up to 2019’s Daylight—a release that earned acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Grace Potter two Grammy nominations—Mother Road, due August 18, via Fantasy Records, fuses elements of soul, blues, country and rock-and-roll with masterful abandon.
“It’s a Saturday Night”
OD Soul, Inc.
“It’s a Saturday Night” is a love letter to the music community. For the hard-working entertainers (their band, roadies, sound and light engineers, local venue owners and service staff). They show up their best, regardless of what night of the week it is, and because of them, I’m never alone.
Orchid in the Ivy
“Suck It Up”
From the EP Cross My Heart
Orchid in the Ivy has been a rock band for 13 years out of Northern Kentucky. Influences range from Bayside, Rise Against and Alkaline Trio. Orchid has been gaining ground in Cincinnati by selling out all their recent shows. Their new EP Cross My Heart has been getting rave reviews.
Isaac Hadden Organ Trio
“Dirty Lies” (Ft. Nate Werth & Rebekah Todd)
From the album The Glue
Isaac Hadden Organ Trio is a heavy-hitting, improvisational, cosmic groove ensemble, carving out a distinct voice in the world of funk, jazz, rock and R&B. Bridging the gap between deep improvisation and airtight song craft, IHOT serves up powerful, dynamic music guaranteed to rock mind, body and soul.
Dave Buker and the Historians
From the album Heirlooms
Based in Columbus, Ohio, Dave Buker and the Historians have been spreading their brand of Americana since 2010. In June 2023, the band released Heirlooms, a new album that emphasizes the lyrical textures and vocal harmonies that have come to define their sound.
“Flowers for Free”
From the album The Other Side
Rachael Sage’s ‘60s-influenced “Flowers for Free” is poetic pop-rock at its most adventurous. Beatles-esque wah guitar, with guest guitarists James Mastro (Ian Hunter) and Jack Petruzzelli (Rufus Wainwright) bringing the retro vibes. Produced by Sage with Grammy winner Andy Zulla.
The shambolic yet tunefully glamorous rock-and-roll duo CrashMonkeys broadcast their funky junk from Santa Cruz, Calif. The band’s second EP, LA Trash, is released scheduled for mid-September, and evokes the scuzzy, angsty and arty sounds of Pavement and Sonic Youth, with a bit of Foo-Fighters thrown in.
“Insane for a Moment”
Melbourne, Australia-based artist, Karen Harding pushes the boundaries of creativity. Versatile vocals and captivating collaborations have earned her recognition worldwide, connecting deeply with audiences through her deeply personal and relatable music and expression of human emotion.
Jonny Lyons & the Pride
From the album A Little Somethin’ Somethin’
Fueled by a passion for old-time rock-and-roll and soul, Jonny Lyons & the Pride draws off of the electrifying energy from ‘50s sock hops and the soulful sounds of ‘60s and ‘70s R&B and Motown. With show-stopping vocals, tight harmonies, a ripping sax and swinging grooves, JLP leaves nothing on the table!
ReverbNation Winner: LoveSick Radio
LoveSick Radio (LSR) plays unapologetic, blue-collar rock-and-roll on steroids, blending big vocals, bigger guitars and catchy hooks with punk and blues-infused swagger to create a fresh sound all their own.
Editor’s Pick: Oteil Burbridge
From the album Lovely View of Heaven
Two-time Grammy-winning bassist Oteil Burbridge has been in the music business touring and recording for over three decades.
