Peavey Teams Up with Pedal Steel Icon Robert Randolph
Robert Randolph with his Signature Peavey PowerSlide®
Peavey is proud to announce the release of the Robert Randolph Signature PowerSlide®. Incorporating all of the features of the original Peavey PowerSlide, the Robert Randolph signature model includes an adjustable belly rest, allowing users to adjust the distance between the instrument and themselves, an added single-coil pickup, and upgraded hardware.
The Peavey PowerSlide is a revolutionary approach to playing slide guitar. Not a traditional lap steel, not a resonator, and not a conventional steel guitar, the ergonomically designed PowerSlide combines the best of all three in a unique instrument that can be played in multiple vertical and horizontal orientations, thanks to its four-point suspension and patented multipoint “Y” strap system. Designed to position the fingerboard to the left of the player’s body, the shape allows total access to the playing surface.
The Robert Randolph Signature PowerSlide is available in a metallic silver finish. Features include volume control, “sail” patterns to help easily identify octaves while playing, and a unique magnet-loaded pickup with exclusive variable-coil mode control. The PowerSlide ships with Robert Randolph signature DR .013-.056 nickel wound strings, “Y” strap, padded bag, and polished-finish steel slide.

Pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph is best known as the founder of the funk/blues/rock/soul group Robert Randolph and the Family Band. Rolling Stone listed him as one of their “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” As to why he went to the efforts of creating a signature model, Randolph commented: “ I’ve been wanting something with more versatility, mobility, and comfort.  Something I could really get into while performing live.  With four different pickup sounds and more sustain than any other lap steel ever made, the Peavey PowerSlide gives me everything I want!”

Riff Propelled Power Trio FUZZ EVIL Release Debut Full Length

fuzzevilmastercover_smThis Fall will see the release of the debut studio full-length from Arizona’sFUZZ EVIL. Formed in Sierra Vista in 2014, FUZZ EVIL is a riff propelled power trio founded by brothers Wayne and Joseph Rudell, also of heavy desert stoners Powered Wig Machine. With two singles currently to their name – last year’s Born Of Iron and 2014’s 7” split with fellow Arizonans, Chiefs – this September sees the official release of their self-titled debut on Washington-based label Battleground Records.

Joined by newest member and fellow Powered Wig Machinist Daniel Graves on drums, FUZZ EVIL serves up a thunderous blast of rock and roll reverie indebted to the likes of MC5, The Stooges, Black Sabbath and Clutch. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Primrose Studio by Brian Gold, from the opening crunch of “Good Medicine,” which features Unida/House Of Broken Promises’ Arthur Seay, to the progressively harbingered “Black Dread,” Fuzz Evil flows like the diaries of a cosmic nomad. Swirling and psychedelically enhanced with storylines spun from the mind’s eye of vocalist Wayne Rudell and his obsession with comic books, science fiction and cult cinema. The psychedelic cover artwork was handled by Rudell’s co-owned GhostTown Graphic Art.

Fuzz Evil embarks on US West Coast Tour this October in support of the new album, which will be released on CD, LP, and digital formatsSeptember 30th.

FUZZ EVIL Tour Dates:
10/01/2016 Silver Dollar Saloon – El Monte, CA

STEVIE NICKS TO RELEASE ‘IN YOUR DREAMS’ DVD DOCUMENTARY ON DECEMBER 3ND

Highly Acclaimed Film Reveals Portrait of Nicks As She Collaborates with Dave Stewart on the Fascinating Journey of Creating Her First Album in a Decade

 

Nicks To Appear at DVD Signing at Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Hollywood onDecember 4th 7:00 pm.

 

November 18, 2013 – Los Angeles, California – Rock legend Stevie Nicks, fresh off of Fleetwood Mac’s sold out worldwide tour, will be releasing her intimate DVD  documentary  “In Your Dreams,” it was confirmed today by Warner Bros. Records.

 

“In Your Dreams” is a portrait of the illusive Nicks as she and Stewart embark on a musical journey to write and record the critically acclaimed “In Your Dreams” CD , Nicks’ first studio album in over a decade.  Nicks called this “the greatest year of my life” and felt compelled to share the joyful experience with her fans.

 

The DVD is currently available for pre orders. The limited edition deluxe dvd bundle that included a DVD personally signed by Nicks, a handwritten individually numbered limited edition of a letter by Nicks and never-before seen photos has already sold out its 1000copy limit.

 

Co-produced and co-directed by musical wizard Dave Stewart, “In Your Dreams” was shown at The Hamptons International Film Festival, Mill Valley Film Festival, SXSW and Toronto Film Festival, and had a theatrical release in 53 cities.

 

The inner life of the legendary Nicks has by her design long been kept at a distance from the public.. We learn in “Dreams” that her world features costume parties, elaborate dinner feasts, tap dancing, fantasy creations and revealing songwriting and recording sessions all of which are captured on film.  Fans will also get to see cameo appearances by Edgar Alllan Poe, Mick Fleetwood, Reese Witherspoon, a massive white stallion in the backyard, owls and naturally a few vampires who appear in several “home movie” style music videos.

 

Along with tracking the Nicks/Stewart creative partnership, “In Your Dreams” has plenty of other cinematic payoffs including rare never before seen personal scrapbook stills from Nicks’ childhood and a wealth of candid backstage and performance shots taken over the last 35 years.

 

The documentary was produced by Dave Stewart’s Weapons of Mass Entertainment.

 

Stevie is scheduled to appear at a DVD signing in Los Angeles on December 4th at Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Hollywood at 7:00 pm.

KATE EARL’S Rendition of The Black Keys Song ‘Little Black Submarine’

Kate Earl’s remarkable new album, Stronger, is out today via Downtown Records. Featuring a rootsy brand of all-American 70’s pop-rock, the album echoes the timeless era of west coast singers like Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstadt, and Joni Mitchell.

To make for an extra special release week, Paste.com is featuring a rare cover of ‘Little Black Submarine’ by The Black Keys. Fans can also stream Stronger in full this week on AOL’s Spinner.com and download the album track ‘Loyalty’ on Rollingstone.com.

Stronger is available on iTunes, Amazon and stores nationwide in CD and vinyl formats.

Written and recorded with an expansive crew of well-respected Californians-including Brett Dennen and Blake Mills- Kate’s new collection shows off the careful development of a singular voice. Stronger also introduces a deeply thoughtful songwriter coming into her own. “Maybe I’m a late bloomer,” Kate admits with an infectious chuckle, “but I think I’ve reached such a place of honesty with this album. It’s me coming out and telling my stories. This is where I came from.”

KATE EARL ANNOUNCES TOUR DATES WITH PASSENGER

To celebrate the release of Stronger on November 19th, Kate Earl is performing a residency at The Hotel Café in Los Angeles all month and has just announced a run of dates this December with UK-based singer-songwriter Passenger. The Wall Street Journal named Kate an “Act to Watch” at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon in NYC, and praised her “warm, sometimes-smoky voice and acute pop sensibility.”

It’s also no surprise that Alaska born singer-songwriter Kate Earl was recently named Glamour.com’s “New Indie Obsession.” With her rootsy brand of all-American 70’s pop-rock, Stronger echoes the timeless era of west coast singers like Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstadt and Joni Mitchell and features collaborators Brett Dennen and former Dawes member Blake Mills.

Kate’s new collection showcases the careful development of a singular voice, re-emerging as a deeply thoughtful songwriter coming into her own. “Maybe I’m a late bloomer,” Kate admits with an infectious chuckle, “but I think I’ve reached such a place of honesty with this album. It’s me coming out and telling my stories. This is where I came from.”
