New solo release from Coyle Girelli, previously of ‘Your Vegas’, and frontman for ‘The Chevin’. * (check these bold and powerful albums out too – “A Town and Two Cities” , Your Vegas , and “Borderland” , The Chevin )*
This is the first single from his debut solo album, “Love Kills” to be released this summer on Honey Lemon records. Girelli spent time in songwriting sessions with music legend Mac Davis, which he states were pivotal in the evolution of the songs in the new album. Stating huge influences from the likes of Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash, Girelli emotes his own unique moody, romantic spirit to his music, which he labels as “Modern Noir”.
This velvety smooth crooner does what he does best —creating an intriguing, vintage sounding ballad across a lush guitar soundscape.
“Where’s My Girl ?
J’ adore !
Looking forward to more gems like this on the album.
Mike McCready of Pearl Jam will be honored at the 2018 MusiCares Concert For Recovery at The Shadowbox in Seattle on May 10th receiving the ‘Stevie Ray Vaughan Award’ in recognition of his significant work with MusiCares and his commitment to helping others in the addiction recovery process.
“Recovery is a journey that you take each day, and mine has been affirming from a musical standpoint and a community perspective,” said McCready. “To be able to raise funds for MusiCares and the critical addiction recovery work they do for music people across the country all year long is humbling, and it speaks to the way we can come together to help those in need.”
The benefit concert will support MusiCares’ addiction recovery programs with performances by Barrett Martin, Slash, Chad Smith; and artists Duff McKagan, Mike Ness, and Heart’s Nancy Wilson. The evening will close with a special performance by McCready and friends.
McCready is also involved in Treehouse, a supportive program for kids in foster care that help them find their dreams and express themselves through music. He is also very active in the Chrohn’s and Colitis Foundation. McCready plays with friends in Flight To Mars, a UFO tribute band that hosts charity events for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation’s ‘Camp Oasis’ program, helping send kids who suffer from these diseases to camp.
Happy New Year, Music lovers! Lots of new music set to be released by artists far and wide. Fired up to kick off the New Year with this much anticipated, long awaited release. 5 years in the making BRMC deliver on poetic truths, painting these tracks across the landscape of time and experience in a meaningful, sobering journey .
