katieknipppromopic

Northern California Blues Americana Singer / Songwriter KATIE KNIPP has announced the release of her long anticipated, 5th album, Take it With You. Due out November 7, Take it With You features Neil Campisano on drums, Zack Proteau on bass, and Brett Vaughn Rechtfertig on guitar while Katie sings and plays various instruments including piano, slide dobro guitar, and harmonica.

Player

“After focusing 20 years of my life on my music, it took the births of my two sons and associated sacrifices of motherhood testing my commitment for me to truly appreciate what that means. Some of these lyrics to the songs were typed into my phone at 3am while breastfeeding. With the support of my family, I was able to return as a solo act, and my attitude has completely changed. My love for music had been tested and I couldn’t be more grateful now for ANY time I get to play, especially after the pregnancy carpal tunnel healed. I started writing songs from a more natural state of just pure love and they come easily to me now. I’m no longer trying to prove myself because there’s only one me out there.” – Katie Knipp

LULLWATER Releases Stunning Cover of PEARL JAM’s “Release”

Lullwater Poster Nirvana Style 2

Athens, GA based alternative rock band LULLWATER has released the official music video for their cover of PEARL JAM’s “Release,” off of the 1991 hit album TEN. Originally premiered on Loudwire, “Release” features live Footage with Dave Krusen (Pearl Jam, Candlebox) and Kevin Martin (Candlebox), and was recorded at London Bridge Studios in Seattle, WA, where TEN was originally recorded, with engineering and mixing by Justin Davis.

Player

“The entire experience of recording Pearl Jam’s ‘Release’ in London Bridge Studios was so surreal. Pearl Jam is one of my favorite bands and to cover that song in the same room as they did, was very emotional for me. I had no idea that a couple of years later we would be performing it live with Dave Krusen and Kevin Martin on the Candlebox tour; it’s such an odd and incredible feeling of living and experiencing the moments we’ve made because of ‘Release.’ It’s by far the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me as a musician. Thinking back to when I was in my adolescent years playing that song over and over and then one day to be performing it live with the original drummer, is simply crazy for me. ‘Release’ has a special place in my heart and is one of my favorite songs to play live.” – John Strickland (Vocals/Guitar)

lullwater-album-cover

For more than a decade, alt rockers Lullwater have been blazing their way to the top of the industry thanks to their gritty, Southern-infused sound and straight-up, raw performances.

Formed in 2007 in Athens, GA, the foursome was born from the indelible mark that the godfathers of grunge left on music. The convergence of this inspiration, mixed with a healthy helping of swagger, defines this critically acclaimed alternative rock band.

The group released its debut, self-titled album in 2012 to solid reviews and were immediately invited to join some of the biggest tours that same year, as well as had the single “Albatross” featured on Sirius XM Octane Radio. Since that time, Lullwater has spent the majority of their career on the road sharing the stage with such A-list acts as Candlebox, Theory of a Deadman, Flyleaf, Passafire, Amaranthe, Butcher Babies, and more. The band released their critically acclaimed sophomore album, Revival, in 2015, followed by a live EP, The Seattle Sessions, in 2017.

Voodoo, their latest effort and arguably their best work to date, was recorded at the end of 2017 in New Orleans at Marigny Studios by Swedish producer and engineer Jakob Herrmann, co-produced/engineered by Justin Davis, and mixed by Jakob Herrmann at top floor studios, is scheduled for a Winter 2018 release; this record promises an even bigger, more explosive sound that will shake you to your core.

3 YEARS HOLLOW Release Official Lyric Video for “You and I”

Quad Cities heavy rock band 3 Years Hollow has released the official lyric video for their newest single, “You and I.”

“For us, ‘You and I’ was more or less a Thank You to our fans that have supported us over the years. This band has a new attitude and our past experiences have become the writing fuel for a new album that will break all the previous molds of what 3YH was. The break we took the last few years was much needed but we’re incredibly excited to be writing together again.” – Jose Urquiza (Vocals)

Player

Click HERE to Download “You and I” on iTunes

3 Years Hollow is a 5-piece band from the Quad Cities, a group of cities located along the Mississippi River in Iowa and Illinois. Jose Urquiza [vocals], Tony Reeves [guitar], Neil Kuhlman [guitar], Dex Digga [bass], and Chris Cushman [drums]—dispense honest hard rock that’s equally hypnotic and heavy.

Over the past decade, the group has solidified itself as one of the Midwest’s most incendiary and infectious young acts. Their breakout independent single “Remember” charted at #1 on Octane, while “Chemical Ride” is closing in on 1 million YouTube views. In 2012, they emerged as regional victors during the Ernie Ball-sponsored Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival “Battle of the Bands”.

Playing the Tinley Park, IL date of UPROAR, they caught the attention of Imagen Records who proceeded to offer them a deal soon after. Now, with production by none other than Clint Lowery of Sevendust, their latest album bristles with irresistible intensity and magnetic melodies.
Becoming a local stalwart, 3 Years Hollow shared the stage with everybody from Papa Roach to Buckcherry, and they’ve siphoned their live energy into a kinetic anthems.

About the sound, Jose explains, “We want to play melodic hard rock. That’s the music that brought us together. At the same time, we all have drastically different influences from progressive rock to hair metal to pop punk. All of these other influences will begin to shine through as our albums progress hopefully.”

That cohesion comes across on the likes of “For Life”. Coupling a fret-burning solo and chorus from Lowery with Jose’s dynamic delivery, it practically explodes on impact.

“It’s about a person who is struggling and has fallen away from the world alone,” says the vocalist. “You can see the damage and the demons the person deals with on a daily basis. However, all of a sudden, there is hope instead of despair. The final message is to pull away from the demons, stand strong against them, and keep them out for the rest of your life. It was such an honor to bring that track to life with Clint.”

Then, there’s “Hungry”, which bares its teeth via a bombastic beat and arena-size hook. It taps into their on-stage intensity. “We wrote that in the jam space,” recalls Jose. “We want people to get close to the music. We give everything we can so fans forget about everything else.”
3 Years Hollow supported The Cracks with three (3) singles, all which cracked the Active Rock Top 40 chart and the Billboard Mainstream Rock Top 40 chart.

Ultimately, 3 Years Hollow constantly keeps the listeners in mind with that honesty. “Everything I write about is a completely personal experience or something I’ve witnessed or experienced myself,” he concludes. “I want to give everybody something real.”
