”The Well” is the 4th single from Love On Drugs upcoming album ”meLODies”.

Musikalen "Richard Rocks" var tänkt att sättas upp i Sverige från början, och då finns i dag de flesta låtar med svensk text.

Så, goda vänner, tomten kommer redan den 23:e november i år.

Tawny Ellis - Love Life


A glance at the song titles on Tawny Ellis’ new album "Love Life" reveals a clear, unifying theme. “Pretend Love”, “Deep End Of Love”, “Spark Of Love”. “This record took about 3 years to finish”, Ellis says. “I can’t tell you why, it was just the natural progression of it. The songs for the most part are very personal stories or perhaps stories I tell about what I have observed in relationships. I built these songs mostly with three different people, Gio Loria, my husband, Jesse Siebenberg and Ted Russell Kamp. I was lucky to have all of their extraordinary talent and input on board”.

Lazy Afternoon - Wild


Americana and folk rock band Lazy Afternoon releases the 1st single out of 8. "Wild" bears clear traces of Bertold Brecht and "Bei Mir Bist Du Schön", Yiddish and German 1930's, where Jörgen's melodeon makes the big impression. "Wild" is a wild swinging song written by Bo Ahlbertz and Ken Donner, and takes up the realization that you do not have the strength to party as much when you get older.

The Gothic Cowboy - Bare Bones


“These songs, just vocal and guitar recorded, in 1978, 1979, 1981 and 1984, on a portable cassette, are remnants and revenants from my roaring 20's and dirty 30's, when it finally dawned on me that singin’ in bars would not feed my family and I’d need to hammer nails the rest of my days." ~ Melvin Litton

Råttorna - Utan Titel (vinyl)


Det tog drygt fyrtio år, men nu är den här. Boråspunkbandet Råttornas första fullängdare. ”Vi var helt enkelt inte färdiga med punken”, menar en påtagligt nöjd Fou Parlé, gitarr, sång, låtskrivare, och svarar samtidigt de som anser att en återförening av ett band få kommer ihåg är något patetiskt. ”Det ger vi högaktningsfullt fan i”.

West Of Eden - Cabin Songs


“We decided to embrace this simplicity this time, and we ditched the drums and the electric guitars. Instead we spent a weekend in a cabin on the Swedish Bohuslän coast, courtesy of our guitarist Henning’s grandmother.

Han anklagades för morden på de två prinsarna i Towern. Men förmodligen är historien en helt annan, d.v.s. att han vägrade utföra detta dåd och blev då anklagad för förräderi. Så hur det än var så blev han avrättad vare sig han utförde dådet eller inte. Ett slags 'moment 22' även på denna tid. Här sjunger Buckingham ut sin förtvivlan på väg till livets slutskede."

Kerry Patrick Clark - What A Show


Kerry Patrick Clark has reached into his childhood memories to find juggling clowns, flying trapeze artists, dazzling plate spinners, death defying tightrope walkers and red coated lion tamers, among them. This larger than life cast of characters winked at him as he sat rapt in the bleachers, their smiles an invitation to run away with them and join the circus. It was such a tempting idea that his first song, "Circus Town", written when he was 11, gave voice to that dream. And now he revisits the fantasy from the distance of decades to release his 9th studio album.

Hat Check Girl - Kiss Me Quick


"The songs on 'Kiss Me Quick' were written as duets. Unison, harmony, trading lines, swapping verses, interplay, interweaving. Over the decade we’ve been recording together as Hat Check Girl our harmonies have grown closer, and our blend more personal, this project explores the intrinsic possibilities in working as a duo, a different way of thinking than in the recordings we each make on our own." ~ Annie Gallup & Peter Gallway

Su Andersson - Train Stories


Inspiring wanderlust and a spirit of adventure regardless of age or circumstance, Su Andersson's "Train Stories" is a music book of stories and Americana nostalgia through the eyes of a lifelong European, yet it is also much more besides, for this album serves notice to everyone to have the courage to embrace lifelong fantasies and embark upon their very own voyage of exploration.

Ulrik Arturén - Prayer


Ulrik Arturens andra single för 2020 heter "Prayer" och Ulrik berättar, "På kvällen den 21:a augusti 1485 samlar kung Richard III sina män för att be en stilla bön för vad som komma skall. Dagen därpå inleddes slaget vid Bosworth, vilket skulle leda till slutet på Rosornas Krig och Richard III:s död". Ulrik fortsätter att gräva fritt i Peters låtskatt. Och tanken är att med både text och musik förflytta sig tillbaka dryga 500 år och till Bosworth Field. Tillsammans med Ulrik och hans musikanter beger vi oss ut på slagfältet. Och som Richard säger, "This night, is alright for praying".....

"As promised, here is the new Long Ryders single! 'Down To The Well' was cut in Richmond, Virginia, near guitarist Stephen McCarthy's bohemian love pad, with a few overdubs added down the phone line later on.

'If You Want To See Me Cry' is the b-side and an acoustic version, not the version found on our last album 'Psychedelic Country Soul'." ~ Sid Griffin

TRUCK - En Doft Av År


TRUCK är en svensk trio med tydliga rötter i sent 60-tal och tidigt 70-tal, och musiken är en tung rock- och blues-baserad kompott som stundtals även kan dofta progg. Repertoaren består huvudsakligen av egna alster som live gärna framförs på hög volym med en våldsam elektrisk frenesi.

Enjoy, dear friends." ~ Judith Owen

The Refusers - Freedom Fighter


You can’t say Michael Belkin and his wildly defiant powerhouse band The Refusers didn’t warn us. Maybe our collective complacency allowed us to take those previous messages with a grain of salt the last few years, but in this shitstorm of 2020, that’s no longer an option. Perhaps our fear, anxiety and vulnerability in the wake of COVID-19, and the George Floyd murder protests, will wake us up so we can hear Belkin and the boys as they meet the moment head on with their latest brainwave blast "Freedom Fighter".

Calle Karlsson - På Kanten


”På Kanten” är en välproducerad, luftig countrydoftande visa, med en begrundande, nästan filosofisk text. Det är också texten som står i centrum i ett annars minimalistiskt, om än smakfullt, arrangemang, och den sparsmakade känslan gifter sig bra med texten som lyckas vara upplyftande och melankolisk samtidigt. ”Jag tänker att på andra sidan molnen finns en sol, som skiner starkt, men som jag inte ser. Mitt i min tvekan finns ju allting som jag gjort, jag tänker kanske blir det inget mer”, skaldar Calle Karlsson.

Deborah Henriksson - Breakers' Roar


The new bundle of Deborah Henriksson's "Breakers' Roar" includes the original version, released in 2017, a new, more acoustic version, and an instrumental version.

The sentiment is so fitting for how we’re all feeling right now, needing others, knowing we can’t get through this alone, I’m so proud of how poignant, deeply moving, and totally different it is! Many thanks as always to my incredible collaborators. Leland Sklar, Pedro Segundo, Christian Lohr, John Fischbach, Jesse Snider and Steve Lee.

Parker Gray is the collaboration between singer, songwriter, multi instrumentalist, engineer and producer Peter Gallway, and keyboardist, synthesist, producer and composer Harvey Jones. It sprang from Gallway’s desire to expand his work into the realm of atmospheric and emotional landscapes and who better to help create this vision than his friend Harvey Jones, who has performed on recordings with Robert Fripp, Sting, Paul Buchanen, Jerry Marotta, Tony Levin and Carla Bley. The spoken element of these recordings derives from the poetry collection, "Big Mercy", by Peter Gallway on Gallway Bay Press.

Coco O'Connor - When I Was Your World


Returning to the studio in early 2019, Coco O'Connor was more determined than ever to return to her musical beginnings. “It has a lot to do with going back to my roots where I grew up”, says Coco.

After forming a band for a music festival in 2018, Coco took that inspiration to a whole new peak by bringing the full band in to the studio to record on her latest release, "When I Was Your World".

Michael Johnathon - Legacy


It’s a 9 minute folk rock monster, a journey of the modern age of songwriters in a collapsing record industry. It’s being played on rock stations and bluegrass programs, public radio and commercial radio.

Råttorna - Utan Titel


Det tog drygt fyrtio år, men nu är den här. Boråspunkbandet Råttornas första fullängdare. ”Vi var helt enkelt inte färdiga med punken”, menar en påtagligt nöjd Fou Parlé, gitarr, sång låtskrivare, och svarar samtidigt de som anser att en återförening av ett band få kommer ihåg är något patetiskt. ”Det ger vi högaktningsfullt fan i”.

Mannish Boy - Who Are They Fighting For


"This is a song we started to write years ago about meaningless war, fucked up politicians, religious fanatics and so on.

Lawson Vallery Band - Texiana


Lawson Vallery was born in the southern US state of Louisiana, but soon after his family moved to Texas, that is where he grew up, always moving from town to town as the family followed the great Texas oil boom of the 40’s and 50’s. Beginning in the early 50’s most of his entertainment came from listening to the Grand Old Opry and Louisiana Hayride on the radio or going to movies featuring singing cowboys like Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and Tex Ridder. It seems that he knew from an early age that a singing cowboy was what he really wanted to be, so he began to document his young life in the form of poems and lyrics.

Ruby Lovett - It's A Hard Life


Ruby Lovett is pure country. She is heir to a tradition of women with drawls and spunk. She is funny, unaffected, and unabashedly traditional in outlook. The combination makes both her singing and her presence extraordinarily appealing. The fact that such appeal is tied to a beautifully one of a kind voice is all the better. Her music is as real as she is, full of honest emotion and real life situations, sung with unaffected grace and power. To hear her sing is to witness the flowering of a life and musical approach that began with a childhood in Laurel, Mississippi.

Deborah Henriksson - Face Your Fears


"The legend of King Arthur inspired me when writing the lyrics. I like the idea that ordinary people face fears and struggles with as much bravery as heroes of legends do. The chorus, 'face your fears, seek new beginnings', was clearly prophetic for me in my personal life as well. Many listeners tell me that they also like to repeat those words in tough times. The music catches you from the start and pulls you in with energy, but also with a timeless celtic vibe." ~ Deborah Henriksson

Lynne Hanson - True Blue Moon


"'True Blue Moon', the 1st single from my forthcoming album 'Just Words', was written in response to the Jacques Brel song 'Ne Me Quitte Pas'. I read in an interview that he didn’t consider it to be a love song, but instead an example of how far a man would go because of love. This song was from the point of view of the woman who sees the romantic poet for a temporary lover and not capable of longer lasting love. It’s supposed to be a tongue in cheek song about that out of control feeling that we can sometimes have when we fall head over heels in love, and at the impossibility of that romantic fairy tale feeling actually being something that can be maintained over time." ~ Lynne Hanson

Bobbo Byrnes - The Red Wheelbarrow


”The Red Wheelbarrow” was mostly recorded while touring across the US and I was influenced by modern radio in a counter intuitive way, I didn’t want to sound like modern radio. I wanted to sound like people in a room making music and less like a computer. It’s not discounting what others do, it’s just reacting to it.

Annie Gallup - Bookish


“My new album ’Bookish’ was written and recorded last winter, my first winter living on the coast of Maine. It was bitterly cold outside and there was ice and blowing snow, and I hibernated upstairs in my writing alcove and downstairs in Peter Gallway’s Gallway Bay Studio to work on this record, solo, live in the studio, unguarded, focused. I’ve been unable to travel for several years because I have chronic Lyme Disease. It has turned my world upside down and made it very small. Touring and performing are out of the question. But I’m writing, constantly, and I’ve recorded these new songs to sound the way I would play them on stage if I were able to bring them to you in person”.

Paul Messinger - The Reckoning


Paul Messinger's 2019 release, "The Reckoning", is a song cycle constructed to challenge the growing notion of 'otherness'.
