Emmitt-Nershi Band: New Country Blues - September 29, 2009

The idea for the Emmitt-Nershi Band has been in the works for a long time. As founders of popular touring bands, both Drew Emmitt (Leftover Salmon) and Bill Nershi (The String Cheese Incident) have traveled the world and played in front of hundreds of thousands of people. Over the years, as they would cross musical paths at various shows & festivals, a strong friendship was forged.

With Emmitt on mandolin & vocals, Nershi on acoustic guitar and vocals, Andy Thorn on banjo (Larry Keel, Drew Emmitt Band), and Tyler Grant on bass (Drew Emmitt Band), ENB delivers a dynamic blend of bluegrass, newgrass, country and Americana that is sure to excite fans of all those genres and more!

Read the Mantis reviews from Entertainment Weekly
and Rolling Stone the New York Times

Here’s what critics are saying:
“Umphrey's McGee stand revealed as consummate musical alchemists, deftly reconfiguring sounds from rock's vast panoply of styles, and evoking bands as diverse as Steely Dan, Metallica, XTC, Rush, and the Beach Boys without sounding like copycats.” – Entertainment Weekly

“…the sleekly constructed tunes (no noodling here) sparkle with a sweetness and soul that's more than the sum of their influences.” - Entertainment Weekly

“…meticulous…the cohesive strength of the band…rarely falters.” – New York Times

“If complexity is the standard by which it should be judged, Mantis warranted the buildup [of its release].” – New York Times

“[The Mantis pre-order campaign is] a likely template for emerging and established acts [looking to] kick-start interest in a new release.” – Billboard Magazine

“…razor sharp compositions… surgical precision, stop-start build-ups, hair metal riffs, and anthemic crescendos…not to mention some of the most technical and inspired guitar soloing you’ll hear on an album…” – Relix Magazine

“Mantis emerges as a cohesive, flowing song-set, strong in structure, and dotted with stylistic and genre-bending excursions… the album [is] great.” - Honest Tune

“A beautiful music gumbo… The band pulls off the trans-genre trick without a hitch.” - Associated Press

"…some of their slickest and most ambitious tunes yet.” – Rolling Stone

Bloodkin - Baby, They Told Us We Would Rise Again
New Studio Album Available Online February 17, 2009

Bloodkin’s new album, Baby, They Told Us We Would Rise Again, was produced by David Barbe (Bettye LaVette, Drive-By Truckers, Sugar). This collection of songs is a stripped down rock & roll record that harkens back to the days where songs were recorded in a single take and relied on the raw energy of 5 guys playing together in a room. Baby, They Told Us We Would Rise Again will be released digitally on February 17, 2009 on SCI Fidelity Records. A wider release is expected in late spring. 

An excerpt from Patterson Hood’s (Drive-By Truckers) liner notes:
“Bloodkin has been through the fire and persevered and come out the other side better and stronger than I ever thought they’d be. They have landed on the best line up of players they’ve ever had and seem to have gained a control of their demons that two years ago would have seemed beyond impossible. Instead of packing it in and going home (or dying) they pulled themselves up and made their greatest album in a quarter of a century.
Life affirming Rock and Roll in the grandest tradition. This is music to LIVE with and it don’t get any better than that.”

The latest studio album from LotusHammerstrike – finds the band reaching back in order to move forward.  Primarily recorded live in one room to analog tape by Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man), the band captures a sound that harkens back to the 70's but never slips into nostalgic retreads. 

The compositions are focused and melodic, filled out with orchestration including swelling violins and cellos, banjo, wordless choirs, and electronic noises.  Though the tracks range from dance floor ready rockers to soaring post-rock instrumentals the album is held together by a sanguine spirit that pervades each track.  The big guitars, feedback, and distortion serve an optimistic purpose.  It is a decidedly American feel that invokes big skies, open roads, and a zealous yet naïve pursuit of the idea that defeat will never be conceded. 




Keller Williams with Moseley, Droll & Sipe - LIVE
(Double Live Album with Live Concert DVD)

Keller Williams has built a career on his uncanny ability to captivate a packed house—all by himself.  So why now, after 15 years as a solo artist, is he releasing a live album — simply titled, Live — with three other names on the cover? It turns out that since he first picked up a guitar, this troubadour has wanted to front a band. 

On Live, Keller taps into the world-class talent of Keith Moseley (bass – The String Cheese Incident), Gibb Droll (guitar – Marc Broussard, Brandi Carlile), and Jeff Sipe (drums – Aquarium Rescue Unit, Leftover Salmon). The musical horsepower of four friends playing together on stage proves stronger than even Keller had dreamed. Recorded at select live shows during a winter 2007-2008 tour, and featuring 17 tracks that span Keller's career, Live is a testament to how a band, with the right chemistry and chops, can take a song to places even the writer couldn't have imagined.

Railroad Earth's new studio release, Amen Corner, was written and recorded at Lone Croft: an empty, 300 year-old house in New Jersey 's rural countryside. What happened inside the building was the experience of a lifetime for the band's members, resulting in an early creative pinnacle of a gifted young band, and an album that is an instant Americana classic. Amen Corner is a collection of crisp and crafted roots, bluegrass, and acoustic sides that resonates in all the right places. The tunes breathe both on and between the notes. They hit you immediately, but then linger like a good buzz.

Stay tuned for the Amen Corner website, featuring audio, video, news about the new release and more!



On February 8, 2006, Keller Williams hit the stage at Denver's  Fillmore with a project he calls Grateful Grass.   Grateful Grass -  which featured Williams, Keith Moseley (The String Cheese Incident),  and Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band) - performed not-so- traditional bluegrass versions of Grateful Dead favorites.  The vibe  in the packed house was thick and sweet; and the crowd was whisper  quiet, when they weren't singing along.

On April 29, 2008, this very special evening of music will be  available for digital download at iTunes and at other digital  retailers. 100% of the proceeds of REX: Live at the Fillmore will go  to benefit The Rex Foundation, an organization of the Grateful Dead  family which gives grants to worthwhile causes. Since its inception in 1983, The Rex Foundation has provided $8.3  million in grants to over 1,000 grassroots programs across the U.S. and internationally. Check out



Though still in its infancy, American Babies has already begun to prove itself. After scoring marquee spots in 2007 at New York 's Bowery Ballroom, Philadelphia 's World Café Live and influential gatherings like Manchester , TN 's Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and Chicago 's Wicker Park Fest, the band stepped into the studio with veteran producer Jon Altschiller (Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer).  The result:  their emotionally-charged self-tiled debut, American Babies. The album's 11 original compositions vividly display the raw talent of singer/songwriter Tom Hamilton. While still only in his twenties, Hamilton 's lyrics channel the worldly knowledge of songwriting chameleons like Neil Young and Ryan Adams, with a hint of Gram Parsons thrown in for good measure.  The collection is held together by elegant swings and swaggers of Joe Russo, an award-winning drummer with his feet firmly planted in both the jazz and rock worlds.




In this new year, looking back on the last decade of Incidents we decided to honor the memory of a classic.

Complete with a countdown to kick off the Incident, SCI launches into blistering versions of Rollover, Black Clouds, and rarities like Eleanor Rigby, Across The Universe, and I Wish.

You can check out this archived session on the NPR Web Site. May 21, 2007

"Technically, it doesn't constitute a mash-up, but this cover of Nancy Wilson's "How Glad I Am" plays to the concept wonderfully. In a sparkling case study in contrasting and complementary beauty, gritty funk bolsters the bottom end while dreamy, vaguely Appalachian three-part vocals enliven the top. The music conjures images of the back woods, but the song's witty concept resides firmly in DJ culture."

Check out the entire review on the NPR Song Of The Day page.


Jason Hann and Michael Travis (percussionist and drummer from The String Cheese Incident) compose this brand new 100% improvised live breakbeat, trip-hop, house, and drum n' bass project.

On Friday January 26th The World Cafe broadcast a recent session and interview with
The Radiators. This recent performance took at the World Cafe studios in Philadelphia.

This special performance, which aired on the nationally-syndicated program, is now featured archivally on the National Public Radio Web Site.



January 20, 2007 - Casey Dolan, LA Times
"play this" - Keller Williams

"This might be written off as a sour-grapes tirade about the state of the music business if it weren't so catchy and well-played. Williams, a.k.a. K-Dub or Jam Man, may be mocking every new band that's coming up these days,but they all probably wish they could play as well as he does. It's an old theme -- the Byrds wrote a template with "So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star" in 1966 -- but one that hardly goes out of fashion for an industry built on fashion. Williams plays every last variant of pop musician, but the hooded-parka band in the basement (how many punk-emo bands look like this?) is especially funny. The only weak moment is the "psychedelic" wah-wah half-time section that diverts the energy for a few seconds."

" With full throttle beats, pulsating bass lines and a captain-less ship; Zilla offers up mind-melting grooves that warp from one song to the next."

You can check out the entire review on the Honest Tune web site.



The Disco Biscuits and Diamond Riggs Records newest live release, Rocket 3, is the entire third set of the Biscuits' 2004 New Year's performance in New York. Regarded as one of the best sets of music the band has played in years, this limited-edition three song collection is as much a nod to the past as it is a glimpse into the future.
The tracks, originally considered for release on The Wind at Four to Fly, were moved to the cutting room floor when it was decided that a 70 minute 2 1/2 song CD would not be well received at retail. However, the CD has received new life as a result of the many requests from Disco Biscuits fans that this be released in the crystal clear quality that can be expected of all Diamond Riggs live CD's. Rocket 3 is in stores nationwide, starting November 14th.



The press has been loving the debut album from Honkytonk Homeslice:
"completely saturated in goodness, with great harmonies, phenomenal picking, and a healthy dose of blue sky" - HONEST TUNE

"This record is so wonderfully relaxing that it's downright enchanting. You get pulled into the music, and suddenly, you don't have a care in the world. All that's important is the sound resonating from the speakers, and all focus and attention turn towards the music." - JAMBASE

"well-crafted harmonies and acoustic guitar arrangements" - EARVOLUTION

"great songwriting and blistering flat-picking...will make you wish Honkytonk Homeslice was more than just a 'side' project" - GLIDE MAGAZINE

"has a sound of its own " - BILLBOARD

"impressive picking from guitarists Nershi (Dobro, lap steel) and Law (mandolin), as well as pleasant vocals from Jilian Nershi, this is a thoroughly enjoyable project" - COUNTRY STANDARD TIME



A message from The String Cheese Incident:  "We are all looking forward to kicking off fall tour next weekend in Austin.  As a special treat, we will be exclusively offering a new SCI DVD, "Live From Austin, Texas - Austin City Limits" at the Waterloo Records Tent throughout the ACL Festival.  The DVD features the band's entire Austin City Limits television appearance from July 2001.  The show has been re-edited and the music remixed in stereo and surround sound.  We will be doing a signing at the Waterloo Tent at 3:00 PM on Saturday, September 16th.  On October 3rd, the DVD will be available in stores and through the website and SCI Gear."

“Making Rock and Roll is an art form best performed with an understanding of its tradition.”

Such are the words of Tea Leaf Green's guitarist Josh Clark, as he discusses their musical approach during the creation of their SCI Fidelity Records debut, a live DVD and companion CD, entitled Rock 'N' Roll Band, available in stores October 31st.

SCI Fidelity is excited to welcome this band of youthful San Francisco gypsies who put their own original spin on rock & soul.



SCI Fidelity Records, in conjunction with Radz Records welcomes legendary New Orleans band The Radiators to our family of artists.

On October 3rd, The Radiators will release their 14th album, Dreaming Out Loud. With the original lineup intact (it has remained for 28 years and counting) the Rads bring new insight and a fresh new perspective to their already branded "Fishhead Music."



Bill Nershi, guitarist/singer/songwriter from The String Cheese Incident, proudly presents Honkytonk Homeslice - a mostly-acoustic collaboration with his wife, singer/songwriter Jilian Nershi, and accomplished multi-instrumentalist / singer / songwriter Scott Law (of the Scott Law Band, Tough Mama, Hanuman & Melvin Seals‘ Melting Pot).

“This band takes the music back to its roots; back to the kind of shows String Cheese did when it began,” Bill explains.
“Honkytonk Homeslice invites listeners into our living room (not literally) for an intimate performance that everyone can participate in.” These songs were recorded the old time way. The trio sat in one room around open mics with no separation between their voices and instruments. All three members of Honkytonk Homeslice contribute original songs to the album.

The self titled debut from HTHS, to be released September 5, 2006, delivers 13 songs of down-home Americana music.



Colorado trio ZILLA (Michael Travis of SCI , Jamie Janover and Aaron Holstein) always keep the live musical experience in mind. Each ZILLA concert proves to be a completely unique occurrence, with even the band members having no idea where the music will take them night after night. Relying on their uncanny ability to listen and incorporate their individual talents into a group focused brand of live electronic dance music, ZILLA is sweeping the country with their rare breed of beats, bass and uncontrollable musical fury.

all iZ, the band’s first studio release, which is due to hit streets on September 5, 2006, offers two full discs of musical spontaneity, flow, grooves and a damn good dance party!

The May 2007 issue of Keyboard magazine weighs in on The Disco Biscuits' new album The Wind at Four to Fly:

"After a decade of touring, the Disco Biscuits have solidified their reputation as one of the kings of the jam band scene. For those who are uninitiated, this new live double album is a great place to start. Released as a farewell to departing drummer Sam Altman, The Wind at Four to Fly is one of the most cohesive representations of the Biscuits music., known to fans worldwide as "Bisco." The audience reactions to live cuts like "Kitchen Mitts" and the trippy "Morph Dusseldorph" add to the excitement, while killer keyboardist Aron Magner creates melodic soundscapes amongst the band's tight rhythms and intricate chord changes. Magner's piano work on the epic "Spy" is some of his best yet, showcasing his seasoned and tasteful chops. The band's influences range from classical to electronica and far beyond, but when the Biscuits are on, they sound like no other band on the planet."
