Red Beard's Revenge
Cincinnati songwriter, James Funk, breaks through with a new band, ‘Red Beards Revenge’, and a new LP ‘Jim Jimmy James’, recorded at Sol Records in Bright, Ind. Since forming RBR in 2011, James has honed in the sounds of older songs he has written and the newer sounds he has been performing. RBR spent the next year developing their sound and vision, and were eager to capture the change in the studio.
RBR CD Cover‘Jim Jimmy James’ is an 11 track LP that captures the raw and honest energy of Red Beards Revenge. These 11 tracks are united by a common theme: Jim Jimmy James interpreted as child, boy, man. Members are James Funk, Jason Wilcoxon, Dan Baechle, and Jason Gay. Red Beard’s Revenge is a member of the SOL Record family along with Dallas Moore and Pure Grain.
Shoot Out The Lights
Shoot Out the Lights is everything the band's name suggests and much more. Armed with loads of enthusiasm and never forgetting to Roll along with the Rock, the influences and efforts of this Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky based quintet are apparent on their newly released, self titled album. The band's songs range from heartfelt love songs to more up-front sexual notions, and get-after-it rock n' roll party songs.
With the help of producer Mike Tekulve, the band created nine highly polished jewels and released the LP in March 2011. Highlights of the album include “Stay Beautiful”, which is a trippy electric journey, with precision lyrics and haunting background vocals that take us inside what could be love and devotion. “Kiss You So Hard” moves us to the all or nothing ultimatum of a relationship teetering on the brink of success or failure. With the song “You & Me,” Josh Muddiman and Elaina Brown share the vocals in a fitting country rock song that tips a cap to classic country duets. Toward the end of the album the song “Hello My Love” is a boot stomping, beer drinking, howl at the moon type song that will have audiences and fans singing along.
The band is working hard to gain regional recognition and performances include songs from the new album, a mix of other new and old originals, and occasional select cover songs. Live, the vocal blending and wholehearted performances of Josh and Elaina is something music fans need to experience. According to Cincinnati journalist Danielle Custentino of Cincinnati Metromix Magazine, "Move over, Rhett Miller, Cincinnati has its own upbeat, Americana infused rock band that surpasses your Old 97s. Yes, you heard me correctly. I went there." Mike Breen of City Beat had this to say; "While the songs...have a Roots aftertaste, this is more soulful, melodic Rock than AltCountry. Singer Josh Muddiman has a perfect Rock & Roll voice, which is bathed in a smoky rasp, giving the melodies and lyrics an extra "lived-in" depth."
Frontier Folk Nebraska
we roll like the wind, traveling in despirations as the winds flare like a mid summers drive. destinations, luminations, restless hearts, and open minds. lost chords on a wooden box, mindless thoughts with an electric guitar. holy like the rollers and devilish becomes my sin. headed for nowhere looking for road map.....
