We are coming in to one of the best times of year for music fans—the summer touring season. There is no shortage of outdoor music festivals; amphitheater double and triple bills; food festivals that feature music; block parties; and even great music at restaurants/bars with outdoor seating. It has already started to some degree, but really picks up steam from Memorial Day through Labor Day. There are just so many opportunities these days to enjoy live music outdoors, you just have to keep your eyes and ears open.

And with that, happy May everyone. Now let’s get to the good stuff.....

New clients/Upcoming releases

Jared Hard—Nashville based singer/songwriter’s debut solo EP, 10,000 Hydrogen Bombs, is a showcase of rich, smoky, and layered Americana combining elements of rock, blues, and folk with lyrical poetry. The six-song collection explores moments in life, big or small, that serve to shape, destroy, rebuild, and change. Hard takes full advantage of his considerable storytelling talent, leading listeners on a journey through various scenarios: Strangers meeting at a bus stop, soldiers returning from conflict, a road musician's experiences touring the Midwest, and more.

Dale and the Z-Dubs—Maryland based rock/reggae hybrid band returns with their third album, TUNA, in June. For this album, Dale and the ZDubs worked with producers Jason 'Jocko' Randall (John Brown's Body, Dopapod, Turkuaz), and Jim Ebert (Everclear, Ice Cube, All Time Low, Everything's "The Hooch"), and audio engineer Sean Russell (Bruno Mars, Damian Marley, The Pietatsers). A tour is planned to support TUNA, beginning with a week of shows opening for Badfish, a tribute to Sublime the week of release.
