Hannah Thomas Launches Kickstarter

Hannah Thomas Described by Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls as having “the soul of old country [but a] die hard rocker with some punk thrown in the mix,” Georgia-based Hannah Thomas isn’t afraid to play around with genres. Having released her latest album over a year ago, Thomas has been busy traveling the country, playing shows, and writing new material— but in order to help that last one come to fruition, she’ll need your help. Thomas has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund her latest album, and is seeking $10,500. Though the album title is still in the works, she hopes to record the album in late spring/early summer for a fall release. You can pledge here and watch her video below. You can also catch Thomas on tour this March and April across the U.S.  Continue reading ‘Hannah Thomas Launches Kickstarter’

Paper Bird Announce West Coast Tour

Paper BirdDespite their name, there’s something absolutely grounding about Paper Bird‘s music. Their sound is easygoing and direct, with a folksy vibe that only a banjo and harmonica can create. And with seven members, one can imagine that touring is no easy task, making it all the more exciting when this Colorado band hits the road. Luckily for those of you on the West Coast, Paper Bird will be in your neck of the woods in no time, with dates in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho this March 18th-23rd with support from The Americans and Head For The Hills. Check out the full list of dates below. Continue reading ‘Paper Bird Announce West Coast Tour’

Matt Bailie Launches Kickstarter

Matt BailieI always get really excited when I hear about an artist launching a Kickstarter. There’s nothing that quite compares to a fan’s dedication to their favorite artist, and Matt Bailie is about to prove that all over again. After all, he did take home the country prize for our 2010 Intel Superstars competition, and then emerge as the big winner of our 2011 OurStage Panel—there’s no doubt this artist has talent and a surging fan base to back him up.

With a dream to fund his sophomore release, I Wanna Live Like That, along with the music video for “Dress Down,” Bailie has launched a 30-day Kickstarter. Having worked with ACM and CMA award winning producer Darran Smith on the album, Bailie is seeking funds to cover the cost of everything from manufacturing to promotion, with the aim of getting the attention of industry giants CMT and GAC. Some of the pledge prizes include the new album, handwritten lyrics, recording session, cover video, and a full band house show. Check out the Kickstarter video below, and pledge right here to be a part of Bailie Nation. Continue reading ‘Matt Bailie Launches Kickstarter’

Annalise Emerick Announces Tour Dates & Giveaway

Annalise EmerickWe’re suckers for simple, beautiful melodies and songs. That’s why when we read that New England native, Annalise Emerick - a favorite from our recent Intel Superstars Competition – had announced a string of late-winter tour dates around Georgia and Tennessee, we couldn’t help but feel a sting of pain that we in New England lost such a talent to the Nashville area. Running from February 21st to March 27th, Emerick has scheduled five dates, including the A-Town Get Down Festival. Emerick is also working on her next album, and giving away a free copy to whoever can correctly guess the cover song she’s adding.

SXSW Announces The 1975, Against Me!, And More

sxsw_2012-300x118Hard to believe, but SXSW has announced yet another round of new artists, bringing the total to an amazing 2,000-plus acts. But after seeing that the new additions include The 1975, Against Me!, and St. Vincent we have to admit it’s worth expanding an already enormous lineup.

You can view the full lineup here (warning: it’s going to take you a while to sift through), and catch SXSW from March 7-16 in Austin, TX.
