Jackie Greene
Jackie Greene
Jackie Greene began his career in his mid-teens working the bar and open mic circuit in and around his hometown of Sacramento. Since then, he has recorded seven albums and two EP’s, released a DVD, and published a book of lyrics. Upon witnessing his performance at Bonnaroo, Jon Pareles of The New York Times had this to say about the singer, songwriter, bandleader, multi-instrumentalist, “Jackie Greene could be the Prince of Americana. That's capital P, and not because Mr. Greene favors the color purple but for some musical parallels.”
Rich Robinson
Rich Robinson
Socrates said that a life unexamined was not worth living, but sometimes life is going so well that you could forgive one for just going with the flow. But life will catch up with you in time, as it did for Rich Robinson. Before he was 25, he had fame as the guitar player for the Black Crowes, fortune, a beautiful wife and home; seemingly, he had it all. But in the blink of an eye, much of it was gone. How he managed to make it through with graciousness and his sense of self-intact is examined on his new solo album, Through A Crooked Sun.
Prophet Omega
Prophet Omega
Before he was Prophet Omega, Joe Magistro was the drummer of the NYC
band Darlahood and a frequently requested musician in the New York rock
scene. At home in his Brooklyn apartment, however, he began
experimenting in his bedroom studio eventually gathering up enough
courage to play what he created for his friends. These recordings rapidly
spread around town and eventually led to a signing with Capitol Records.
The debut album 'The Natural World' (2006) was hailed as "a sophisticated
sonic triumph" by Vanity Fair and featured Magistro on nearly all
instruments and vocals. The collection was recorded both in Brooklyn and
in a cabin in the Catskills and had songs featured in several TV shows and
movies.
Since then he has filled the drum chair for the Rich Robinson Band (The
Black Crowes), done stints as percussionist for The Black Crowes as well
as occasional producing, composing and drumming for others.
The long anticipated follow-up to 'The Natural World' is the upcoming
'Going To Slab City' a DYI collection of songs written, recorded and
produced by Magistro at home in the Catskill Mountains. Slab City takes
the listener on a 'Fear And Loathing' style road trip across America towards
a desert land, an exuberant neo-Psych Rock, existential crisis on wheels,
highlighted by the signature beats and hooks that made the first Prophet
Omega album turn heads.
