Sass & Brass

Andrea Marr - Sass & Brass
Style: Soul

Andrea Marr, considered the queen of Australian Blues for her high energy, joyous performances, and clever tongue-in-cheek lyrical content, is proud to announce the release of her first official soul album – the EP “Sass & Brass.” The sound is a combination of soul and blues, filled with the genuine passion of someone who has truly loved and lived this music. It’s a powerfully energetic, brassy, big sound, reminiscent of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Ike & Tina Turner, and the JBs. The album is the result of a second collaboration with co-producer Cam Scott, also Andrea’s keyboard player and arranger for several years. It’s a follow up to her last CD “Little Sister Got Soul,” which peaked at #18 on the Living Blues Radio Charts, and garnered many recognitions and rave reviews, including 2009 Australian Female Blues Artist of the Year. Although short and sweet, Andrea’s new EP serves up a heaping helping of steamy, sultry soul to shake your booty to.

Stevie J - The Diversity Project Stevie J - The Diversity Project
Style: Blues/Soul

“The Diversity Project” by Stevie J is two separate albums recorded during the same period of time. The first disc is a Blues CD, “Standin’ At The Station,” inspired by Stevie’s first appearance on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise, where jamming with scores of other respected musicians inspired him to get some of his own blues music recorded. The second disc, “Soul Sessions,” represents Stevie’s work in Mississippi as a southern soul artist, and includes exceptional covers of Mayer’s “Gravity,” and Clinton’s “Cosmic Slop.” Stevie’s love for blues, soul, hip-hop, gospel and more are abundantly clear in every song from these albums, and together they make for a soulful and uplifting blues experience.

Little Sister Got Soul Andrea Marr - Little Sister Got Soul
Style: Blues

“Little Sister Got Soul’” is Andrea Marr’s second commercial release, and showcases her trademark sultry, sassy and soulful vocals that have earned her the nickname “The Pint Sized Powerhouse of the Blues,” and made her one of the most popular acts in the Australian Blues scene. The album also showcases Andrea’s songwriting, arranging, and producing abilities for the first time. Seven of the ten songs on the album were penned by Andrea and show her deep love of soul music as well as her lifelong love of blues greats such as Etta James and Freddie King. Andrea comments, “This big soul sound, reminiscent of that STAX sound is what I always wanted to create!” In 2009 the album was nominated for three Australian Blues Music Awards and won the award for 2009 Australian Female Vocalist of the Year.

4518 Ron Hacker - Burnin'
Style: Blues

Ron Hacker, slide guitar master, and staple of the San Francisco and bay area blues scene brings us his strongest album, Burnin', featuring a mixture of lesser known blues standards, and heartfelt and scorching originals. From start to finish, the album burns through blues conventions with smokin' guitar work and a stellar backing band. Waiting until the age of 27 to take up the guitar, Ron gained his influences from artists like Fred McDowell, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Elmore James, and Yank Rachell, along with usual suspect Robert Johnson and his most modern influence, R.L. Burnside. Burnin’ features many of Ron’s favorite songs, including many songs he’s been playing since the beginning of his career, and originals that take you through Ron Hacker’s life story.  Ron’s approach to blues is similar to that of artists from the blues classic era, playing old-time blues, rough and raw.

Rusty Evans Burning Man Rusty Evans - Burning Man
Style: Americana/Alt. Country/Folk

Rusty Evans, considered by many to be the reincarnation of Johnny Cash, offers up 13 originals on his latest release “Burning Man.” This traditionally based album covers the broad spectrum of roots music from Folk to Alternative Country to Rockabilly. Rusty is known foremost for his long tenure in New York’s Greenwich Village and his induction into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. However, he was also once a writer in the Brill Building, has appeared on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, and has shared the stage with everyone from Buddy Holly to Bob Dylan. His experiences have presented him with countless influences, and he displays many of them within. Comprised of largely topical songs, “Burning Man” speaks of Rusty’s experiences in rambling from Greenwich Village in New York to San Francisco and every stop along the way; including the people he met, the places he went and the lessons and stories he acquired along the way.

I Got It Bad Marc Benno - I Got It Bad
Style: Blues

From his work with Leon Russell on the Asylum Choir albums to his appearance on the Doors LA Woman, to his work as a second guitarist for Lightnin’ Hopkins, Marc Benno has been an important part of the music scene for over 40 years. This veteran songwriter and musician returns with an album of original blues tunes featuring the West Side Horns from San Antonio and including Jimmie Vaughan's drummer George Rains and Sir Douglas Quintet bassist Jack Barber. A strong and powerful return to the blues!

Catalog #4510 (Released Jun 16, 2009)
No Longer Available Here Crawlin Marc Benno - Crawlin
Style: Blues/Rock

The original recordings of the infamous Texas blues-rock band featuring Stevie Ray Vaughan on lead guitar (this is the first recorded appearance by Stevie), Doyle Bramhall on drums, Tommy McClure on bass guitar and Billy Etheridge on keyboards, performing classics written by Marc Benno and the band. Concentrating on Benno’s songwriting talents, the band took on a sound of their own and became underground legends in the Austin music scene of the 70’s. The album, which also features Stevie’s first instrumental, was recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood right before the Nightcrawlers went off on tour with J. Geils and Humble Pie. They returned from tour to find their label wasn’t looking for another blues based project, and the album has sat unreleased until now!

Steve Rowe - Five
Style: Blues

Master blues guitarist Steve Rowe has gained his solid reputation and is acknowledged by the press and fans as a Guitar Hero. His latest release, FIVE, delivers the blues with rare intensity, buckets full of emotion, and a six-string style that draws flattering comparisons with the British Guitar Gods of the '60s.

From early Blue Note jazz, FIVE detours to New Orleans' Mardi Gras, back in time for some 30s jump blues, and ending with a side trip to Memphis for a nice Stax groove. Steve and the band remain true to the powerful sound of the blues that leaves plenty of room to let loose.

Bill Abel - One-Man Band
Style: Blues

In his latest release “One-Man Band,” Bill brings you into the world of the Delta blues as a solo act, playing as many instruments as possible in a “live” setting. He accomplishes this by playing both lead and rhythm on a multitude of guitar setups, switching between electric guitar, dobro, and his own homemade cigar-box guitars while playing hi-hat and snare with one foot and bass drum with another, all the while accompanying himself vocally with his signature coarse growl. The end result is a raw, undiluted adaptation of largely electric blues rooted deep in the Mississippi delta tradition.
