The Satellite & The Bluegrass Situation Present
CHARLIE PARR is the eponymous new album by the Minnesota-based folk blues artist the same name. The album is a collection of new songs and new studio versions of classics/audience favorites from throughout Charlie’s career and will be released August 30 (UK/EU/AUS) and September 27 (North America, rest of the world) on Red House Records. Recorded at the legendary Pachyderm Studio in Canon Falls, MN, CHARLIE PARR features Charlie’s trademark resonator guitar and 12-string with co-producer Liz Draper on bass, longtime collaborator Mikkel Beckmen on percussion, Jeff Mitchell on electric guitar, accordion, organ, backing vocals, and Dave Hundrieser on harmonica. The album is an honest and raw recording of Charlie reflecting on himself and his career up to this point. It’s a musical reckoning that came after a freak accident less than a year ago that forced him to relearn how to play guitar, causing him to take stock of the songs he’s written over his lifetime. CHARLIE PARR is a stunning folk record that will surely stand the test of time, just like the man himself.
Concrete and Mud. Since kicking off his career with 2014's Ephemeral, Sam Morrow has seen plenty of both. With his career-defining third record, Morrow should cement his place as a member of Los Angeles' country elite. Concrete and Mud is a confident album, rooted in Texas twang, southern stomp, and old-school funky-tonk. Recorded largely live in the studio on a vintage Neve 8068 console with producer/engineer Eric Corne at the helm, it also shines a light on Morrow's strength as a songwriter, front-man, and bandleader. At 27 years old, Morrow's found his footing as an artist and appears poised to join the ranks of West Coast heavyweights like Sam Outlaw, Jade Jackson, and Morrow's friend and label mate, Jaime Wyatt whose vocals can be heard on three songs here.
Folk-rock singer-songwriter Mara Connor arrived on the scene with her first single "No Fun," which garnered praise from the likes of Rolling Stone (as a "Song You Need to Know" and playlisted with Neil Young and St. Vincent) and was named Buzzbands’ “No. 1 Favorite Song of 2018.’ Her follow-up single "Someone New," a duet featuring Langhorne Slim, was also named one of Rolling Stone’s "10 Best Country and Americana Songs to Hear Now" (along with Mavis Staples and Lukas Nelson). This year the LA native made her SXSW debut and was called one of the "12 Best Up-and-Coming Artists at SXSW" by The Chicago Tribune. Debut EP coming in 2020.
