Davis, High Valley dish out new sounds

Friday, March 23, 2018 – Jordan Davis of "Singles You Up" fame and High Valley are out with new discs today.

For the Louisiana-native Davis, this marks his debut. "Singles You Up" was the first single from his disc, "Home State," out today on MCA Nashville. Davis helped write the song. He has described his interests as ranging from John Prine to Sam Hunt, but adapts a more of a Hunt and Thomas-Rhett type vibe to his music.

High Valley, the Canadian duo of Brad and Curtis Rempel, is out with the seven-song EP, "High Valley: Farmhouse Sessions." They released four albums in Canada before making their U.S. debut with "Dear Life" in November 2016. The new disc, recorded in their farmhouse outside of Nashville, contains material from their U.S. debut done acoustically and has a more down home, traditional country flavor.

After not knowing whether the group would even continue following the departure of half of the band a few years ago, The Felice Brothers continued with a new rhythm section and a new album, "Undressed," that is heavily political.... »»»
Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home – Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why. Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
