8/08/14 No Good Sister, Christopher Davis-Shannon, Terry Rivel & Lost Highway

 


No Good Sister:
http://www.reverbnation.com/nogoodsister

No Good Sister is a female vocal trio out of Philadelphia, PA, singing Western Swing/Blues/Honky Tonk. In the Fall of 2012, a mom, a teacher, and a waitress, decided to turn their mutual admiration for each other’s music, writing and voices into a musical project that would both showcase them as individuals, but especially highlight their deep affinity for tight 3-part harmonies.

Since the formation of No Good Sister, just over a year ago, they have performed at World Cafe Live, both in Philadelphia and Wilmington, The Tin Angel, Fergie’s Pub, The Fire, Underground Arts, Milkboy Philly, Ortliebs, Silk City to name a few, and appear regularly in the Four Seasons Lounge. In January of 2014, they were selected by World Cafe Live at The Queen as the Unsung Hearo Standout Performer of 2013, and won a slot in Hearo.fm’s 2014 SXSW showcase. They are currently recording their original music and will be releasing their first album by year’s end.

Christopher Davis-Shannon:
www.cdavisshannon.com

Christopher Davis-Shannon’s music is the essence of honest simplicity.  Steeped strongly in the piedmont and delta fingerstyle blues traditions,   his performances bring you back to a time of juke joints and smoky blues clubs of the early 20th century south.  A modern vagabond he has toured the country as a performer the past 3 years, performing from Las Vegas to New Orleans and throughout the South.

Davis-Shannon performs a mix of blues and jazz standards, traditional spirituals and his own originals which are steeped in the age old styles he holds close to his heart. His intricate guitar work and plaintive vocals are infused with soulfulness which cannot be faked, and a respect for his predecessors which is rarely equaled.

9/26/14 – Iain Matthews


Iain Matthews

In 1967 Matthews became a founder member of the British folk rock band, Fairport Convention.

In order to facilitate and develop his growing fascination with American singer/songwriters, in 1969 he formed his own band, Matthews Southern Comfort, This group spawned a massive European hit with the Joni Mitchell song “Woodstock”. However, within a year, Matthews felt restricted and began his solo career, signing with the Vertigo label and a new era began. After 2 albums for the company, once again, he felt the need for newer pastures and in 1972 Plainsong, a quartet, was formed with friend Andy Roberts, where together and to high critical acclaim, they chronicled the exploits of American aviator, Amelia Earhart.

Within a year Matthews was again on the move, this time changing continents in a move to Los Angeles, where he established an artist, producer relationship with ex Monkee, Michael Nesmith.

Intending to make the one album, stay for a year and return to Britain, Matthews eventually became a US resident, staying for the next 28 years. Along the way, recording a further 15 solo albums, plus several more with Plainsong and a couple with former Pavlov’s Dog founder, David Surkamp, in the short lived Hi-Fi.
In 2000 he returned to Europe and for the next 4 years worked closely with Dutch singer/songwriter, Ad Vanderveen and together with Eliza Gilkyson, they formed the trio More Than a song, recording and releasing 2 albums.

In this decade Matthews has been recording and releasing as prolifically as ever, gifting us almost an entire shelf of new albums, including, “ Joy Mining” & “ In the now”, with his current songwriting and performing partner, Egbert Derix. 2010, saw a new Matthews Southern Comfort album, “ Kind of new”. Followed in 2012 by a final Plainsong live album, “ Fat lady singing”.
In January 2014, the American label, Omnivore Recordings, released Matthews 20th and final solo album, “ The Art of Obscurity”.
