News and Notes: Records in the Pipeline

September 12, 2014

Chuck Prophet Night Surfer

Night Surfer is coming out later this month from Chuck Prophet.  Tracks from that record have been trickling out since the summer, and Now I’ve Heard Everything has previously featured the song Wish Me Luck (click here to check it out).

Amy Speace 2014

Amy Speace has completed a new album, That Kind of Girl, which will be released in March.  She’ll no doubt unveil some songs from it at her show at The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3 coming up on September 18 (next Thursday).  That night, Amy will be sharing the bill with Peter Case.

Charlie Faye Undertow

Charlie Faye is currently working on a record that is inspired by the girl groups of the 60s. That’s not a huge surprise, as there have been 60s pop influences in Charlie’s music in the past.  Folks in the Austin area have already had the opportunity to see some of those new songs played live.

Ronys Insomnia Rockwood 5-7-14

Rony’s Insomnia, the band led by Rony Corcos, is finishing up a new record.  I have no details on it other than it should be released in 2015.  You can catch the band tonight at The Rockwood Music Hall at 9pm.


Music Video: Charlie Faye – Stone in the Road (Live)

September 7, 2014

Charlie Faye Rockwood 3 fixed

When she was in town last May, Charlie Faye played an acoustic full band show at Rockwood Stage 3.  I had a good seat, so I tried taking a video of one of my favorite songs from Charlie’s last album, You Were Fine, You Weren’t Even Lonely.  That song is titled Stone in the Road. I had forgotten about the video until I was cleaning up my cell phone a few days ago.  This is a fine performance and I think the video came out decently.  If it looks a little dark to you, just play it full screen.

Tonight: Second Dan at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

September 5, 2014

Second Dan at Rockwood

Second Dan been called Oasis without the posturing.  Back in 2010, they had released a pretty good album, Angeline, with one of my favorite songs for that year, Today, and a couple of creative videos.  Then they took a break, got back together for a bit in 2012 and have been on hiatus since then.

There is, of course, a story behind that.  Their front man, Dan Rosen, is from Australia, and he and the rest of the band were based in New York City.  A few years ago, Dan moved back to Australia to become the CEO of the Australian Recording Industry Association, a position he continues to hold.

So take advantage of this rare appearance of Second Dan.  Get yourself down to the Lower East Side tonight for a bracing dose of rock and power pop.

Second Dan, Rockwood Stage 2, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 10pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the band is highly encouraged)

Photo Recap: Misty Boyce at The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 (With Set List)

September 4, 2014

Last night, Misty Boyce played a packed Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 with a band consisting of Misty (guitar, keys, lead vocals) Kirk Schoenherr (guitar), Chris Kuffner (bass and keys), Elliot Jacobson (drums), Daniel Mintseris (keys), and Christina Courtin (backing vocals, tambourine).  The set celebrated Misty’s completed CD, The Life, and was the record played in order.  The Life was previously sent to Misty’s Pledge Music supporters and for the time being is available only at Misty’s live gigs.  Here are photos from the show, along with a set list which follows them.

Tonight: Misty Boyce Celebrates Her Forthcoming CD at The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

September 3, 2014

Misty Boyce Coast Crop

From the first time I saw Misty Boyce (a check back in Now I’ve Heard Everything shows that to have been exactly 4 1/2 years ago), I knew I had seen someone with an incredible amount of raw talent.  And nothing that’s happen since has done anything than convince me that I was right.

Misty hasn’t been around her home base at The Rockwood Music Hall as much as she had been over the last two years, having first moved to LA and then playing keys on several tours with Sara Bareilles (she has yet another tour with Sara coming up shortly).

But tonight, Misty comes back to The Rockwood.  This full band show celebrates Misty’s forthcoming CD, The Life (the official release date is still up in the air but supporters of Misty’s Pledge Music campaign have already received their copies of the record).  I’ve had a chance to hear The Life and can tell you that its blend of ballads, rock and pop makes it the strongest work that Misty has produced up to this point.

With all the friends and fans Misty has in New York, and the fans she’s made on the road who are coming into town just to see this show, there’s a good chance it will sell out.  Getting a ticket in advance would be the smart thing to do.
