Joey's Song 2013 Benefit Concert
Joey’s Song is a series of compilation CDs featuring rare and unreleased music from nationally and internationally known, award winning artists. The CDs are named in honor of Joey Gomoll, who passed away in March of 2010.
Rhett Miller is the front man and main songwriter of the hard-charging rock 'n' roll quartet the Old 97's, as well as an accomplished solo artist. In addition to his nine studio albums with the 97's (most recently The Grand Theatre Volume One and The Grand Theatre Vol. 2 in 2011), he has released four solo albums; 1989's Mythologies, 2002's The Instigator, 2006's The Believer, and 2009's Rhett Miller. Miller is set to release his first live covers album, The Interpreter Live at Largo, on November 22, 2011 on his own recently established label Maximum Sunshine Records.
In addition to his music being featured in countless films and television shows, Rhett has appeared in an episode of the NBC hit series 30 Rock and the Old 97's were prominently featured in the Vince Vaughn/Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy, The Break Up. Primarily known for his songwriting and awe-inspiring live performances, Rhett is also a critically-acclaimed author whose work has appeared in several books and such well-known periodicals as Rolling Stone, McSweeney's, and The Atlantic.
Born in Texas, Rhett currently resides in New York's Hudson River Valley with his wife and two children. He is hard at work on a new solo album currently slated for a 2012 release.
Miles Nielsen & The Rusted Hearts
Songs are the key.
Miles Nielsen has been writing them for as long as he can remember. Good, bad, great- yeah he's covered all those bases.
For some, music is something in the background, or in the corner of the bar, or merely something that lives on the other side of the dial- a magic diversion created to pass the time in the car. For Miles Nielsen, music is as much a part of his life as the act of taking a breath, every experience, every conversation, every dream is a potential song in the making.
There are millions of people writing, recording and releasing music in today's world of immediate return. Learn three chords, turn on the computer and you have a worldwide release. There are very few, however, who are writing music that makes you immediately wish there was "more"- another song to make you turn up the volume , another nugget of melody or lyric that you can find some part of to make your own.
Miles's songs provide that sense of yearning and ownership. You want to have another record, another song- you want to hit rewind...you want to know more about this world created in song by Mr. Nielsen. A captivating wordsmith, instrumentalist, and creator of hooks- rare indeed, but present in the person of Miles Nielsen.
It would be hard to imagine that the years spent honing his craft throughout the bars and music halls of the Midwest, were not leading to something bigger, something permanent. His latest release, Miles Nielsen presents the Rusted Hearts certainly occupies a space of permanence- these songs are not mere throwaway pop songs- but, rather explorations and declarations of a mastery of style and substance, destined to fall into regular rotation on the turntables of fans new and old for years to come.
What is next? Like with any other prediction- no one can say. Gifts like Miles's come along very infrequently, and one can only hope that his ability to be so "in the now" -listening for the songs spoken in the everyday world will continue to grow.
Then maybe that "more" we are looking for, will be given to us via that very key we yearn for-
Wynn Taylor is a native of Lexington, Kentucky. Like many in his profession, he is the son of a preacher and of course it goes without saying, that is how this life long musician got his start.
Wynn is a soulful artist who has developed his own interesting style of Americana music. With this sound, Wynn has been wowing audiences in Austin for the past five years. For the past 3 years, he has been the featured act at the Hickory Street Bar & Grill on the infamous Congress Ave, as well as performing at many other central TX venues.
A traveling troubadour by heart, Wynn has landed in Tampa, Florida. He looks forward to many new shows at great new venues.
A one of a kind artist with a rich sound that is sure to please young and old alike.
