Press Release

Patterson Hood - The co-founder and frontman of Georgia’s Drive By Truckers, Patterson Hood is the son of famed Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section bassist David Hood. Hood formed the Drive By Truckers in 1996 with Mike Cooley, a bandmate from their previous group Adam’s House Cat. The Truckers double-CD, “Southern Rock Opera,” was the first to garner the group its first national attention. Throughout his tenure with the Truckers, Hood was also penning a starker set of songs that was released in 2004 as “Killers and Stars” - on which his father played. That release and “Murdering Oscar (and other love songs)” which was released in 2009, showed a darker, more acoustic side to Hood’s writing.

 

Van Dyke Parks - For music fans who pay attention to album credits, the name Van Dyke Parks is nothing short of legendary. As a session musician, composer, arranger, lyricist, and singer, he's contributed significantly to several decades' worth of inimitable masterpieces credited to other artists, as well as releasing notable projects of his own. Working with a wide array of musicians, from The Byrds and Sonny and Cher to Ry Cooder and Vic Chesnutt, Parks is perhaps best known for collaborating with Brian Wilson on the storied classic “SmiLE.” In 2011, Parks released his first new music in more than 15 years, a series of singles that features the artwork of artists including Art Spiegelman and WV’s Billy Edd Wheeler. Parks has also released a compilation of some of his greatest arrangements including songs featuring Arlo Guthrie, Ry Cooder, Little Feat, Sal Valentino, Mojo Men, Bonnie Raitt, Dino Martin and Lowell George.

 

Randall Bramblett - Dubbed the “the William Faulkner of Southern music,” “Randall Bramblett came to prominence in the ‘70s as a member of the fusion band Sea Level. Since then, his credits include work with Steve Winwood, Gregg Allman, Levon Helm and Robbie Robertson. Called “one of Georgia’s musical treasures” by Widespread Panic’s Dave Schools, Bramblett is a multi-instrumentalist who excels on keyboards, saxophone and guitar, and a respected songwriter whose songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Widespread Panic, Jorma Kaukonen, Bonnie Bramlett and Delbert McClinton.

 

Teitur - Hailing from Denmark's Faroe Islands, a small, remote group of islands between Iceland and Scotland, Teitur Lassen issued his debut, “Poetry & Aeroplanes,” on Universal Records in 2003. Supporting the disc, he was featured on MTV’s “You Heard It First,” VH1 and CNN, and his songs were included on the soundtracks of the films “My Super Ex-Girlfriend” and “Aquamarine.” He also toured with Rufus Wainwright, Aimee Mann and John Mayer. In 2006, his CD “Stay Under The Stars” included the radio hit “Louis, Louis” and was certified Gold in Denmark while 2007's “Kata Hornid” was sung entirely in his native language. His latest is titled “Let the Dog Drive Home.”  

 

Caroline Aiken - Born and raised on the Georgia Sea island, St. Simons, Caroline Aiken’s first musical influence was Emma Lee Ramsey of the Georgia Sea Island Singers. She moved to NY in the late-‘60s and joined the rock band Father Time. From there, music took her to California during the early ‘70s, to South America, Seattle, east to Greenwich Village and, in the early ‘80s, back to Atlanta. It was then that she heard the Indigo Girls - still teenagers - singing a CSNY song in an alley behind the club Good Old Days. Aiken invited them onstage and sang on their first recording. She toured with the group in 1992, 1994, and 1997. Making her home in Atlanta since 1986, Aiken opened shows for Bonnie Raitt in 1985, and Raitt performed on Aiken’s 1988 debut “Line of Vision.” She has headlined the famed Kerrville Folk Festival numerous times since 1995 and, in 2010, released “Welcome Home.”
