    McGonigel's Mucky Duck presents Mike Stinson  "Virginian Mike Stinson's vibrant take on old-school honky tonk music has made him perhaps the leading LA light of the momenthe's a formidable songsmith" Chris Morris -- Billboard Magazine Mike Stinson's style of music will never fade away or become passe because the truth is never out-of-date Mike writes memorable heart-bleeding tales laced with pain, humor and regret, describing his straightforward sound as "Tear-in-your-beer honky-tonk and barnyard rock and roll" He's the rare artist who doesn't know how to be anything but true to himself There is no pretense, no bullshit, not a damn thing between you and what's in Mike's heart His distinctive voice isn't like anything you've ever heard before, and that's a good thing He means what he sings Mike delivers the message in such a uniquely authentic way, you're not gonna forget what he has to say anytime soon Mike's lyrics touch torn-up heartstrings and you know he understands "Everybody's got their own shit to worry about, and they don't have to deal with the black cloud you're carryin' around So I try not to do that with peoplebut I do it in my songs"

    House of Blues presents Ingrid Michaelson, with Sugar & the Hi-Lows and Storyman In the past two years, Ingrid Michaelson (pictured, right) has vaulted from overachieving indie-pop sweetheart to a bona-fide pop star Her last release, Human Again, debuted at No 5 on the Billboard album chart (plus No1 on iTunes) This achievement merely crowned the considerable success Ingrid had already earned with her previous compositions: beautiful, idiosyncratic songs that have been prominently featured in popular films, television and on regular rotation in commercials Her DIY approach to making music — composing her own songs, co-releasing albums on her Cabin 24 imprint, building an organic following through music-licensing, and back in her MySpace days (where she was discovered in 2006), promoting herself — was a slam-dunk Now, it had evolved into a well-oiled machine, The New York Times even weighed in, declaring her songwriting “smart,” her tunes “irresistible” and her live show “seamless” Her fifth studio album, Lights Out, was released in April 2014 Technically, Lights Out refers to the two words uttered on Ingrid’s tour bus when everyone’s ready to call it a night But it’s also a metaphor for contemplating mortality and letting go — themes more thoughtful than they are dark Lights Out also marks Ingrid’s entry into a brave new world of songwriting Recorded in New York, Los Angeles, and Nashville, the album features six producers and ten co-writers, including singer-songwriters Katie Herzig, Mat Kearney, Trent Dabbs, as well as the very in-demand Busbee (Pink, Katy Perry, Lady Antebellum) and A Great Big World “With every other record, I’ve always written all of the songs I’ve worked with one producer And we’ve stayed in one room,” she says “I’ve been such a control freak about my songs! But if you can get with the right person, there are ideas you could never come up with It totally opens doors” And with opportunity comes meaningful change “It’s funny It doesn’t even feel like I wrote ‘The Way I Am,’” Ingrid says of her platinum break-out single, recorded seven years ago “It’s a memory” She’ll continue to perform it live as she tours Lights Out — just stripped-down, recasting the flittering ditty into something weightier “It feels like a little girl wrote that song So much has happened to me since then” Sugar & The Hi Lows (pictured, below) know that popular music isn’t a mirror, that melodies and lyrics aren’t tethered to the cultural landscapes of their day Breathing a new sound into music with an old soul, this rootsy, vintage duo reminds us why people dance, especially in the midst of hard times Ringing in their new sound, Sugar & The Hi Lows are bringing back the era of feel good music, the days when one take was enough and an auto-tune was a thing you did to your ’55 Chevy Brought to life by experienced songwriter/performers Trent Dabbs and Amy Stroup, Sugar & The Hi Lows is a bit of a nostalgic love offering, a style of music to evoke a feeling you just can’t get anywhere else Storyman (pictured, below) is the songwriting partnership of Kevin May and Mick Lynch  Former members of The Guggenheim Grotto, May and Lynch realized early on when faced with the concept of career that that they had only one choice: Art Their art of choice was music  They set out developing their multi instrumental sound to support what has become one of the most unique, identifiable and chilling vocal marriages It’s not by chance that they have been compared over the years to the Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel with a dash of Leonard Cohen and a few drops of Radiohead, add some of Ireland's most poignant crooners and you might have a hint of their pedigree Most recently they have been likened to Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes, but they always remain outside the trends of the day retaining an aura of permanence along with deep wisdom Yes, they were born and bred Irish lads but their music has always been universal with a signature debt to Irish melancholy, the sad sweet fragrance and elixir of pain that only the Irish can inject into a beautiful melody and lyric

    McGonigel's Mucky Duck presents Sister C It's not unusual to hear female vocalists say they have been influenced musically by Etta James and Billie Holiday … it's also safe to say that it's not unusual to hear female vocalists say they have been influenced by such legends as Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard It is, however, unusual when those female vocalists are as young as Cirby, Carli and Celbi Manchaca, the three sisters who are Sister C But they are not your “usual” female vocalists Although they have also been influenced and inspired by current stars like Norah Jones, Corrine Bailey Rae, Ingrid Michaelson, Sara Bareilles, Adele and singer/songwriters like Toni Price, Patti Griffin and Kelly Willis, these sisters grew up in a household where recordings by Willie, Merle and George (both Jones AND Strait) were often followed with recordings by Ray Charles, Patsy Cline and Harry Connick, Jr, with a healthy seasoning of blues, jazz and zydeco sprinkled in That interesting mix of music genres and vocal styles is evident in the girls’ song choices for both performing and recording – classic rock to traditional country, sultry blues to contemporary pop, it’s all there and they are surprisingly comfortable with all of them Also evident is the influence of family and a hometown full of lifelong friends Growing up in a relatively small Texas town in a family that hits the ground running every day, whether hunting, mudding, riding horses, fishing, dancing, playing basketball or singing, the girls were always somewhere in the mix with one or both their parents – and a slew of friends and extended family – not far away Cirby, Carli and Celbi all agree: "We don't have to look any further than our own home to find all the support we need for whatever we try to do We know we can count on our family to be there for us and we can turn to our parents for anything - they are our heroes and our biggest fans We realize how lucky we are to have a loving family to come home to and a bunch of amazing friends to hang out with Not everyone is that fortunate and we are grateful every day" All three girls have lofty goals in life, not all of which are music related but where music is concerned their goal is clear In Cirby’s words: "I believe that when we hear a song that touches us, it probably also touches other people That's what we want to do – find or write and record a song that other people will hear us sing and maybe it would follow them around for a while That would be awesome" Awesome, indeed

    It's McGonigel's Lisa Morales The best music knows no boundaries, transcends borders and genres, and mixes, matches and melds styles into something all an artist’s own And doing just that comes naturally to Lisa Morales "This is one of the most beautiful records that will be released all year An absolutely flat-out devastating and stunning work of art" --Richard Skanse Lone Star Music Magazine As one half of 1990s Tex-Mex favorites Sisters Morales, Lisa Morales trekked from her native Tucson, Ariz, to Texas, shunning Nashville, Tenn, for an indie path Beautiful Mistake reveals her unerring ear and compelling voice amid patchwork originals of wistful country ("Looking for Something Beautiful"), tender balladry ("I Can't Stop Thinking"), and all-out rock ("Drivin and Cryin") Yet it's the dirty backseat allure of "I Wanna Be in Love" that makes Morales memorable: "I wanna hold your hand/I wanna wear your shirt/I wanna smell your smell/Baby take off my skirt"
