Sugarcane Jane

Friday, May. 29, 2015

When Sugarcane Jane makes music, heads bob, feet tap, smiles spread, and hearts beat just a little faster.  Truly, the musical sugar the band produces is indeed so fine.  The alchemy of Alabama’s own Anthony Crawford and Savana Lee Crawford yields mystically sweet, organic harmonies which are both accessible and familiar, while at the same time intuitive and distinctly their own.  Whether singing original works (like Louisiana, Butterfly, and Sugar) or putting their down home sound on familiar classics (ranging from an incredibly playful and fun Hot Rod Lincoln to a spontaneous rendition of Roger Miller’s Dang Me or a dreamily mellow and psychedelic Midnight Rider), Sugarcane Jane’s appeal cuts across generations and appeals to a wide audience.  If it’s your first time to hear Sugarcane Jane, you’ll find yourself saying, “Wow, who are these guys? They’re good.” If you are familiar with their work, you’ll overhear such comments and smile knowingly as you remember the exact time and place you first stumbled onto the band.

Alvarado Road Show

Saturday, May. 30, 2015

 

The Nashville-by-way-of-Texas-based, brother duo Alvarado Road Show are led by singer/ bass player/guitarist, Cleve Clark and feature A.J. Clark, singer/guitarist. The brothers create and perform rootsy American music about life, love and relationships. When you witness one of their performances, they will paint a colorful picture with words, notes and heart through warm blends of harmony that will move and forever change the way you experience music. They are brothers, singers, performers, musicians, producers & songwriters.
 
The guys frequently tell stories of the days they played in a chicken coop and in front of a laundry mat from years ago, and of the road that led them to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. “Some of those early shows at the time, might not have been the coolest, but they are some of the most memorable. We count them just as important as the big stages.” A.J. says. Cleve continues, “Without those shows, we wouldn’t be who we are today!”
 
The two are known for their ability to deliver the songs that they themselves have tailored to bare their souls. “We try not to be afraid to open up and be real. That’s where our songs come from. Our lives, our experiences, our families and understanding we live in a world of extreme joy and sorrow” states Cleve, who is the younger of the brothers. Some of the guy’s works have been showcased on the recent release by Joey + Rory, “His & Hers” on Sugar Hill Records; Ty Herndon’s forthcoming country project; the legendary songwriter Mentor Williams’ “Just Another Songwriter” project which was also produced by the brothers and features Williams’ rock classic “Drift Away”; & the new Universal Records artists, The Elderlin Chicks. Kim Williams, Mentor Williams, David Z, Tom Douglas, Stan Lynch, Rick Carnes… these are a list of a few hit songwriter legends who Cleve and AJ share catalogs with.
 
“People can count on us being around forever!” A.J. states.

Brent Burns

Monday, Jun. 01, 2015

 Brent Burns was born in Seminole, Oklahoma, and moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1958. While attending high school and Community college sports were important, but music was in his blood. Brent soon strapped on an electric guitar and was fronting a rock-n-roll band.

Life soon changed when he volunteered for service in Vietnam. Several months after entering combat, Brent was wounded and received the Purple Heart. After a three year recuperation in and out of military hospitals, he returned to his love of music and hit the road performing all over the United States. Later on he felt compelled to take a year off from music and hit the college lecture circuit. Offering honest, insightful, and a humorous look at life as a combat soldier, Brent was able to help others troubled with the effect of the war on their day to day lives.

Brent Burns is no stranger to notoriety.  In response to the oil shortages of the 1980s, Burns wrote the hit song, “Cheaper Crude or No More Food,” which sold 200,000 copies the first day it was released.   Paul Harvey played the song three times; the first and only song ever played in the program’s 35-year history.  Burns’ fame has continued with guest appearances on all three major networks, interviews on the BBC, and featured articles in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune andBillboard Magazine.

Brent also has the distinction of being the first entertainer to sing for American troops overseas since the tragedy of September 11th, 2001.  Besides his busy performance schedule, he continues to perform at benefits around the world, including for the National Underwater Marine Agency (NUMA) of Australia, the Phoenix Suns Night Hoops Program, American Cancer Society, and Habitat for Humanity, where Brent is building a house with proceeds from his latest CD, “Margarita Smile.”
