All About ROADSTARS

 

simo (1)

SIMO’s song, “Stranger Blues”, is the perfect introduction for the Nashville power trio’s vibrant new LP, Let Love Show the Way. The song is a blueprint for reinvigorating the fusion of jazz improvisation, down home blues and classic R&B, as well as these genres’ psychedelic Brit Invasion and countrified Southern-rock manifestations. The rest of the record follows suit, a souped-up vehicle transporting the band on a deeply satisfying, off-the-cuff musical journey.
The first album ever recorded at Macon, Ga.’s Big House—the communal home of the Allman Brothers Band during their late ‘60s/early ‘70s heyday—Let Love Show the Way finds SIMO not just revelling in the hallowed space’s unique mojo and history, but taking it to a fresh and inspired place. As a musical unit, Simo, his long-time drummer Adam Abrashoff and bassist Elad Shapiro have an undeniable chemistry, taken to even greater heights with JD playing Duane Allman’s 1957 gold-top Les Paul for every track on the record. This is the same six-string heard on the first two Allman Brothers LPs, the same storied guitar that delivered the unforgettable riff on Derek & the Dominoes’ “Layla.” JD is now part of an elite group of artists—including Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes and Wilco’s Nels Cline—who share the rare honour of having wielded this talismanic instrument.

aaron-keylock

Every now and then an artist comes along that blows you away and Aaron Keylock has fast been cementing his reputation as one of the most exciting and brightest young talent’s in the UK. A mesmerising live performer with over 200 shows to his name. In January 2016, Aaron flew to Santa Clarita, California to record his self-penned debut album with producer Fabrizio Grossi (Steve Vai, Alice Cooper, Joe Bonamassa,
ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons).

Whilst referencing Johnny Winter, Rory Gallagher, The Faces, T Rex and Blackfoot, Aaron writes all his own songs. Sporting clothes and hair straight out of 1974 (“I just like them”). Aaron references his heroes in a shockingly authentic yet millennial way. He explains, “It’s the music I grew up with, it’s what I like, but you can’t base yourself on someone else. You’ve got to be inventive and see what comes out.”

Aaron’s album campaign is scheduled to start in October 2016 with release in first quarter 2017.

federal-charm

“Federal Charm invest swaggering riffs, sleazy flourishes and cinder-raw vocals with a confidence that is utterly winning,” says Classic Rock.

The Manchester quartet released their second album, Across the Divide, on the Wire–Sound label in October 2015. Available via Cargo Distribution, the album was released on CD, digital download and 180gm vinyl. The band released their debut to critical acclaim in the summer of 2013. Classic Rock called the album “jaw-dropping.” High profile opening slots for, amongst others, Michael Schenker, UFO, Black Star Riders, Ian Hunter and Rich Robinson cemented the buzz and promptly realised an impressive 5,000 sales.

In September and October 2016, Federal Charm were special guests for the Planet Rock sponsored Joanne Shaw Taylor UK tour. 20 dates culminating in two sold-out shows at London’s The Jazz Café. Drawing from a deep well, spanning the classic rock curve from the Allman Brothers to Zeppelin with the indie blues of The Black Keys and the contemporary bluster of Rival Sons, Federal Charm are full of melodic twin-guitar twists and stop-start rhythms. Their fresh direction has turned many an industry head, describing the band as having the most cutting edge sound in recent years.
