William Bell – Walking On A Tightrope

(click song title above to listen)

One of our favorite albums of 2016, This Is Where I Live was William Bell’s triumphant return to Stax Records and his first major release in almost four decades. Released on June 3rd, 2016, This Is Where I Live was produced by John Leventhal, who co-wrote this week’s poignant top tune with Rosanne Cash.

The album is nominated for two 2017 GRAMMY Awards (Feb 12th) – Best Traditional R&B Performance & Best Americana Album. Bell was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting at the 15th Annual Americana Honors & Awards Show, and last month he was inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame.

William Bell signed to Stax in 1961 and delivered one of the iconic soul label’s earliest hits with “You Don’t Miss Your Water.” He also co-wrote, with Booker T. Jones, the classic “Born Under A Bad Sign” for Albert King, which was later famously covered by Cream, Jimi Hendrix and many others.

Coming soon to a city near you, don’t miss the amazing William Bell!

“A Memphis Legend is Back” – The New York Times
“It’s resonant, wise, and considered music, the kind of direct songwriting that helped Bell make his name” – Vice Noisey
“Still in excellent form…the most personal work Bell has ever created.” – Chicago Tribune

Rosanne Cash – A Feather’s Not A Bird

(click song title above to listen)

“The finest of her career” - USA Today
“Here it is- the best album of 2014 – Uncut
“The work of a lifetime” – Newsweek
“Superb” – New York Times
“One of 2014′s first great albums” – Boston Globe
“A timeless work” – NPR Fresh Air

It’s time to put the spotlight back on the killer lead off track from Rosanne Cash‘s multi-Grammy nominated album, The River & the Thread.

“When we were forming the idea for this record” says Cash, “it felt like it was going to be the third part of a trilogy – with Black Cadillac (2006) mapping out a territory of mourning and loss and then The List (2009), celebrating my family’s musical legacy. I feel this record ties past and present together through all those people and places in the South I knew and thought I had left behind.”

All three albums in that trilogy are soulful & inspiring American classics, each now having been nominated for Grammy awards. “A Feather’s Not a Bird” is up for two of its’ own this year, including Best American Roots Song and Best American Roots Performance while The River & the Thread is up for Best Americana Album. Cash wrote the 11 original songs for this album with her longtime collaborator and husband, John Leventhal who also served as producer, arranger, and guitarist. Tune in to the 57th Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday Feb 8th 8/7c on CBS.
