-------------------------------------------------

About Rocky & The Wranglers:

When Barbara Carr received her Lifetime Achievement Award from the Blues Society,  Roy St. John accepted on her behalf. While Roy was playing pubs in England and recording for Virgin Records, Barbara was playing with the Oliver Sain Revue in St. Louis and recording for Chess Records in Chicago. Their paths crossed when Roy interviewed Barbara on his award-winning morning radio show and they hit it off musically – and soon became the best of friends, with Barbara joining Oliver Sain and Johnnie Johnson at Roy’s memorable Mardi Gras benefits. This year, Barbara will be honored by the National Blues Museum.

​Barbara Carr began singing with her sisters in St. Louis and eventually replaced Fontella Bass in Oliver Sain’s Revue, later building a solid and haunting backlog of soulful recordings from various labels before forming her own label and accepting annual tours of Europe. Barbara is currently recording a new album with Roy Roberts in South Carolina, where Barbara continues to entertain huge audiences at festivals. Roy St. John’s new album Rocky & the Wranglers – named for his St. Louis band – combines Blues, R&B, and Americana, garnering British reviews of enviable comparisons with Randy Newman and John Hiatt. He left England in the 80s and was soon hosting and producing a daily morning radio show in St. Louis, where he met Barbara. Recently, they agreed to extend their occasional duets to a full-scale program of individual songs and duets backed by Roy’s crack band of  seasoned musicians. Barbara Carr, Roy St. John, and Rocky & the Wranglers are a five-piece blues band.

-------------------------------------------

About the Joe Metzka Band:

Joe Metzka is not your average blues man. He moved to the sacred ground of St. Louis and assembled a world class band that delivers a full package of blues, soul, funk and jazz seamlessly. 

"The charismatic vocals, confident solos and killer grooves of this group will take you to the next level of appreciation for a live music experience you deserve." 

- John May, St. Louis Blues Society

Andrew Foshee is a songwriter from Kansas City, Missouri. His early cinematic home recordings have been featured in various tv shows and indie films. Earlier this year Foshee teamed up with Andrija Tokic and a high clergy of guest musicians at his Nashville studio, The Bomb Shelter, to fully realize Strange Relations, an ethereal song cycle on the human condition that takes the listener on a voyage through saloon style honky-tonk, psychedelic folk rock and lush, luminous baroque pop. It tells the story of an underachieving anti-hero coming to grips with his mortality while embracing the humbling experiences of his imperfect existence. Cowboys befriend aliens and together they join forces to abolish our age-old fetish with victimhood. Strange Relations was nominated as a Top Album by indie music blog Divide and Conquer and received a 4.5 out of 5 star rating.

DOROTHY RELEASES NEW SINGLE "FLAWLESS"

PRE-ORDER 28 DAYS IN THE VALLEY TODAY
AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE MARCH 9TH

NOW ON THE FREEDOM TOUR

Los Angeles-based alternative rock band Dorothy have released the new track "Flawless", the first single from their forthcoming sophomore album 28 Days in the Valley, out March 9th. It's a vulnerable message that begins with heartbreak and ends as a vindicated feel good anthem of self-love.

"It's about an ex who really did a number on me," reveals namesake and frontwoman Dorothy Martin. "This one came fast to me. It was very subconscious... like I'm channeling them. Linda Perry pulled the lightness out of me, both personally and musically. This record is definitely still bold, but it's happier. It's kind of like the butterfly coming out of the cocoon."

"Flawless is the best song ever and if you don't think so, you can fuck off," says Perry.

The new album has the in-your-face bluesy, gritty rock and roll fans loved on 2016's ROCKISDEAD, and their recent standalone single, "Down To the Bottom", which debuted at #1 on Billboard's Heatseeker's chart and Rolling Stone called the "perfect mix of blues thunder and alt-rock guitar crunch." But, added to that thunder this time around are more layers of emotion fueled by less metal, more California desert rock vibes.

"This was a spiritual journey and very healing, and because of that it's an unapologetically honest record," says Martin of the new album. "Somehow Linda [Perry] knew I had more to give as a singer and writer. I used to hide behind the tough girl sound, but she taught me that there is power in my vulnerability and that's what you get on this record."
