BEAR FAMILY RECORDS CELEBRATES 40TH ANNIVERSARY WITH AN HISTORIC BOXED-SET RELEASE

Bear Family Records – the German-based independent record label that has served music fans around the world with some of the most comprehensive collections in all of music – is celebrating its’ 40thanniversary this fall.

Founded by music historian Richard Weize, the company’s first release was 1975’s Going Back to Dixie by Bill Clifton. Since then, the company has issued multi-CD packages and box sets of a wide array of artists and genres, ranging from R&B acts like Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and Eartha Kitt to Pop legends Dean Martin and Doris Day to and Country icons, such as Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton.

Country Music Hall of Fame member Bill Anderson has nothing but the utmost respect for the care that Bear Family puts into their work. The Grand Ole Opry star was the subject of a 2011 set issued by the label – Bill Anderson: The First Ten Years, and says he was thoroughly impressed with the attention paid to his music.

“They have the reputation of doing the best box sets of anyone in the business,” he said. “I had wanted a box set for the past few years, and wanted Bear Family to be the ones to do it. When I listened to the music, there was a lot of it that I hadn’t heard in a long time.”

Through the work of Bear Family Records, it is possible to secure the entire recorded catalog of iconic artists such as Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Snow, and Bill Monroe. Perhaps two of their most-extensive collections are In The Shadow Of Clinch Mountain – an incredible 12-CD collection of the complete recordings by the Original Carter Family, as well as The Honky Tonk Years, a 10-disc collection containing the complete recordings of Ray Price through 1966.

The label also has delved into the obscure with their collections. Perhaps one of the most interesting releases by the label was a four-CD collection of songs related to the legendary television favoriteBonanza – including Christmas On The Ponderosa, a rare 1963 Yuletide platter that features recordings from all four of the Cartwright family – Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Pernell Roberts, and Michael Landon. Bear Family has also released several single disc sets, focusing on hit recordings by acts such as Don Gibson or And the Answer Is – a collection of three single discs containing many of the greatest answer songs in Country Music history – including “He’ll Have To Stay” by Jeannie Black, and Jean Shepard’s rarity “The Only Mama That’ll Walk The Line.”

The label is also well-respected for their lavishly-researched books that go along with each of their box sets. Whether it be Barry Mazor’s explanation of the music and life of Connie Smith or Rich Kienzle’s in-depth account of Buck Owens and the Bakersfield Sound, music fans get not only an audio delight for the ears, but also get to learn about the history of the music. Each set also includes a detailed discography of the recordings involved, including the dates, the times, and the instrumentalists on each track. That’s worth the price of sets alone, says Billboard’s Chuck Dauphin, who has written articles on many of the individual packages the label has released.

“The music is the drawing power, of course, but when you read a Buck Owens discography, and see the name James Burton involved on several tracks – it gives you a unique spin on the history of the music, which is priceless,” he said.

And, from that first release four decades ago, the company’s inventory continues to grow, with the label’s catalog containing approximately 1,500 in-print releases including 300 CD boxed sets w/ comprehensive books (LP-size), a wide assortment of historical music DVDs, a selection of high-profile 180-gram vinyl LPs, and even several 45s to round things out.

Bear Family Records continues to plow new musical ground. For a detailed listing of all of their releases, go to www.bear-family.com

Popular Country Newcomer Alexandra Demetree’s Acoustic Music Video: “Outta My Head”
Alexandra Demetree
“Delivering a passionate and aching vocal somewhere between LeAnn Rimes and Kelly Clarkson, Demetree fits right in with today’s country radio.” – Music News Miami

“She is an angelic songbird who has mastered her craft … finding a gem like this is a rarity in any genre.”

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October  2015– Popular Country newcomer Alexandra Demetree’s new acoustic music video, Outta My Head, premieres today on THE BOOT. Filmed at a vast, aged warehouse in Nashville’s historic Germantown district, the video is stunning in its stark simplicity. Demetree’s emotionally-charged vocal and the song’s high-impact lyrics take center stage, while abundant natural daylight, a sense of space and timelessness play supporting roles. Producer/director Brian Harstine’s (Dolly Parton, Ke$ha) minimalistic approach kept the camera focused on Demetree, three supporting musicians (Josh O’Keefe, Jason Roller and Jaran Sorenson), and a few quirky “abandoned” props.

“It was a very straightforward concept,” explains Alexandra. “The entire focus was on showcasing the emotion and musical validity of the song in an organic way.” For Demetree, returning to the basics was an exciting challenge. “To go back to square one and make an acoustic version of this dynamic, mid-tempo power ballad was just a fantastic experience.” The single, produced by Bobby Huff (Reba, 3 Doors Down, Journey, Heart) and written by Mark and Cherie Oakley, is rising on the MusicRow CountryBreakout™ Chart, currently sitting at # 60. “Outta My Head” delves into the reminders left behind when a relationship ends: the photos, the empty space beside the bed and more. It’s a tale that most listeners can relate to, and it follows the petite brunette’s three previous successful Country radio releases, including the popular single/video duet of her own composition, “Lay It On Me,” with The Bachelorette’s Wes Hayden.

Demetree wraps a four-day radio promotion tour of Oklahoma today; the tour will resume in a few weeks. She continues to work on her upcoming EP. Fans can learn more about Alexandra from recent features at The Daily CountryMusic News San Francisco,Digital Rodeo and One Stop Country.

THE OAK RIDGE BOYS INDUCTED INTO THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME
The Oak Ridge Boys
GARTH BROOKS, TRISHA YEARWOOD, KENNY ROGERS, DIERKS BENTLEY, VINCE GILL AMONG ALL-STAR CAST PAYING TRIBUTE TO INDUCTEES

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 2015) – Groundbreaking vocal group, The Oak Ridge Boys, became one of the newest inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame during a star-studded emotionalMedallion Ceremony on October 25, 2015. Considered country music’s most prestigious event, the ceremony is the official induction of new Hall of Fame members.

Alongside fellow 2015 Inductees Jim Ed Brown and The Browns, and studio session great Grady Martin, The Oak Ridge Boys were feted with heartfelt testimonials and memorable performances of songs they made famous. The artists paying tribute varied widely in ages, backgrounds, and styles, which underscored the eclectic nature and crossover appeal of the musical contributions of the artists being honored.

“These men and women distinguished themselves through virtuosity, harmony and heart,” said Jody Williams, BMI executive and trustee on the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Board of Officers and Trustees. Williams filled in for the ceremony’s usual host, museum CEO Kyle Young, whose mother died on October 13.

“They have made music that endures through decades,” Williams continued. “Tonight, we honor them—respectfully, formally, and enthusiastically—as country music masters.”

The inductions focus on paying tribute to the inductees, celebrating their stories with spoken and musical tributes and original videos that draw on photos, interviews and performances found in materials lovingly collected in the museum’s Frist Library and Archive. The result conveys the special talents, personalities and unique stories of each new Hall of Fame member and underscores why each inductee deserves the prestigious honor.

For the musical portion of the tribute for The Oak Ridge Boys Jeff Hanna of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, an emergency replacement for Chris and Morgane Stapleton, whose travel plans were interrupted by flooding in Texas, performed “Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight.” The Rodney Crowell song had been a #1 hit in 1980 for the Oak Ridge Boys.

Next, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood performed a delicate, touching version of the love song “I’ll Be True to You,” The Oak Ridge Boys’ first #1 hit, in 1978. With Brooks on acoustic guitar as the only musical accompaniment, Yearwood sang two verses, with her husband on harmony. Brooks took the last verse, and Yearwood joined in for the final chorus.

In a surprise to The Oak Ridge Boys, the Martin Family Circusbounded onstage. Featuring Duane Allen’s daughter Jamie Allen on vocals with support from her husband, Paul Martin, and their four children, the group delighted Allen, his vocal partners and the rest of the audience with an animated version of “Elvira.” The children—March, 17; Kell, 14; Texas, 10; and Tallant, 8—proved to be experienced stage performers as they drew out the celebratory, whimsical nature of the singalong hit.

Kenny Rogers, a 2013 Hall of Fame inductee, inducted the Oak Ridge Boys, saying, “There’s nowhere I’d rather be than right here tonight.” Rogers and the vocal group often toured together in the 1970s. Each member of the band spoke about what the induction meant to him.

The audience at the private celebration was packed with Hall of Fame members, who welcomed the new inductees into their exclusive club. Hall of Famers in attendance were Bobby Bare, Harold Bradley, Garth Brooks, Roy Clark, Ralph Emery, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Ray Walker of The Jordanaires, Brenda Lee, Charlie McCoy, Randy Owen of Alabama, Kenny Rogers, Connie Smith, and E.W. “Bud” Wendell.

The evening ended, as always, with a performance of “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.” Museum employee and ace guitarist Ben Hall, started the song off, performing an instrumental verse and chorus as the Hall of Fame members gathered at the front of the stage. The Oak Ridge Boys took turns singing the verses, with all the Hall of Famers present—and the theater audience—joining in on the choruses.

VETERAN ROCK BAND HITS THE ROAD WITH LEAD VOCALIST CAMERON BARTON

Survivor

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 2015) – Legendary rock band Survivor is embarking on their next chapter in 2016 with a new member who has seemingly given new life to one of rock ‘n’ roll’s preeminent bands. With 21-year-old Nashville resident Cameron Barton assuming lead vocalist duties, the group will take their trademark arena rock sound to their loyal and devoted fan base.

Barton steps into the role of Jimi Jamison, who passed away in September 2014. Survivor is excited to have Cameron bring his powerhouse vocal style to the band’s live shows. “He’s great,” says the band’s Frankie Sullivan. “After hearing him, I was in Nashville within twenty four hours. I was in the studio with him about a day later. I stayed with him for about four days, and put him through the ringer. He just kept getting better and kept delivering.” Barton’s commitment to getting the job done is something that impresses his bandmate. “He’s a very focused guy. Most musicians aren’t that focused when they are that young. He learned twenty songs in about eight days.”

Sullivan noted that there might be pressure of taking on the role of lead singer in a group with such a historic pedigree, but he says Barton doesn’t seem to be affected by the pressure. “He just wants to do what he does. You get new people in with new ideas, and usually that comes with a different vibe.”

All in all, the band is hoping that 2016 brings more success with their impending tour and planned album, slated for later in the year. “I think it could be a year to remember. He has a great work ethic.”

Survivor released their first album in 1980 on Scotti Brothers Their first Top-40 on the Hot 100 came the next year with “Poor Man’s Son.” Their big break would come in 1982 when the band was asked by Sylvester Stallone to provide the theme song for Rocky III. That single, “Eye Of The Tiger,” hit # 1 – staying there for seven weeks, winning a Grammy for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal, a People’s Choice Award, and an Academy Award nomination. The song came in at #18 on the “Top 100 Singles” chart in Billboard‘s 100th Anniversary issue and it’s well over the 300,000 mark on iTunes, where it’s currently holding strong at #9 on their “Top Soundtrack” chart. The band also struck paydirt as a result of a Stallone movie when “Burning Heart” appeared on the soundtrack of Rocky IV in 1985, hitting # 2 on the singles chart.

The band’s VITAL SIGNS, was another huge success for the band, peaking at #16 on Billboard‘s “Top 200 Albums” chart thanks to the Billboard Top-20 hits “I Can’t Hold Back” (#13), “High On You” (#8) and “The Search Is Over” (#4).

Dates for 2016 will be announced soon. For more information about Survivor, log on to their www.SurvivorBand.com

@FELIXXMUSIC

https://soundcloud.com/felixxmusic/keep-calm

To understand Felixx, one must know that he marches to the beat of his own rhythmic drum. Groomed from an early age to be a southern gentleman, the Monroe, Georgia-native has mastered the art of distinction. An impressive hybrid of sophistication and warmth, Felixx’s disposition parallels his approach to music as well. A classically trained singer with influential energy from Mozart, John Mayer, Calvin Richardson, Prince, Justin Timberlake and Miguel, the R&B crooner is one of the few artists today to make records incorporating live instrumentation and does so with convincing passion. His moniker, taken from his birth name Felix Thompson with the addition of an “x,” refers to his “Clark Kent” ability to effortlessly transition from one genre to another while remaining GQ smooth.

Felixx’s self-titled debut EP features the lead single he co-wrote, “Keep Calm.” The instrument-laden, Hip-Hop flavored track boasts brilliant harmonies and catchy melodies, and was recently featured in the 5 o’clock mix on Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5. Other standout records include “Applause,” “Crazy,” and “Give It to Me,” a slick, funky and sexy throwback-flavored offering that flirts on the border of Pop and Rock. With the release of Felixx’s debut project in February of 2015, fans have been patiently waiting for some new heat. Recently collaborating with DJ Blak from Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5 and a few other industry heavy hitters, Felixx has begun working on new project expected to be released later this year, featuring the HOT new single “All Night”.  Showing musical diversity and seamlessly tying together R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop, Pop and Rock, Felixx truly is a unique example of contemporary art set to music.
