This past weekend, Grammy award winning guitarist Eric Krasno set out on a coast-to-coast, two-week tour to promote his latest creation Always. Released on February 4th, this second solo endeavor is packed full of the quality compositions and visceral voyages that Krasno is recognized for in the studio as well as the live setting.

The idea of “losing yourself” may seem negative, but to Grammy-award winning guitarist Eric Krasno, the phrase has a deeper meaning. “It’s about losing your ego when you find someone who works for you,” he explains.

On his fourth full-length solo album, ‘Always,’ songwriter-producer Eric Krasno celebrates the permanence of family, in a time when the world seems especially unstable. The album’s third single, “Alone Together,” released today, is about the beauty that can be created between two people in solitude. “You and I, alone together now,” Krasno sings. “I didn’t know we could create something divine an innocent in a time so cold.”
 

On “Silence,” the new single from songwriter-producer Eric Krasno’s forthcoming solo album ‘Always’ (2/4, Mascot Label Group), Krasno explores the emotional havoc that a lack of communication can wreak on the human psyche. “Silence is a song I wrote a number of years ago about the torture of not knowing,” he explains.

It’s been a LONG time coming…

Out on all major digital music outlets January 15th, 2021, Organ Fairchild's Seepin’ is a song almost forty years in the making.

The single, mastered by Alan Evans of Soulive, marks the very first original music output from three long-time veterans of the jam band scene.

Last week, Alan Evans' latest musical project, Crushed Velvet and the Velveteers released a powerful new single via Vintage League Music, "As Far As We Know," featuring the vocal stylings of D.C.-based musician, Brother GoodLove, as well as a cast of VLM-affiliated artists including, pianist Darby Wolf, Alex Lee-Clark and Brian Thomas of BT ALC Big Band, baritone guitarist Ryan Hommel, and string player Cynthia Tolson.

An upbeat fusion of soul and funk, featuring live instrumentation, is on full display in Crushed Velvet and the Velveteers' new single, "Good Thang." Founded by multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, sound engineer and producer, Alan Evans—who is also the co-founder of acclaimed jazz fusion trio, Soulive—Crushed Velvet and the Velveteers the self-proclaimed guitar player "alter ego" for Evans.

Alan Evans' label, Vintage League Music, shares the latest single from BT ALC Big Band, marking the group's first release on the imprint, with a full album promised later this year. With 18 musicians credited to the track, "Bring Forth Change" was amazingly captured completely remotely in the midst of the current global pandemic.

“Guitarmeggedon!” That is one of the words used by Devon Allman to describe the sheer volume of talent and amplitude displayed at Denver’s Mission Ballroom on December 8th. The metropolitan’s newest venue played host to the Allman Family Revival, a conglomerate of the Allman Betts Band and a rotating stage of support that included 17 faces from the music world, including both well-known veterans and some new faces on the scene.

Hailing from London, UK comes Crowd Company, a dynamic octet evoking a modern take on vintage soul-funk. Fittingly, Crowd Company releases their latest record, Lowdown, on January 31st, 2020 via the Alan Evans (Soulive, Ae3) founded label, Vintage League Music. In advance of the release, Crowd Company has shared instrumental single, "Express 76," and female vocal-led title track, "Lowdown."
