The Gary Douglas Band has unveiled a powerful new lyric video heralding their hugely anticipated new album, DEEP IN THE WATER. “Nothing Ever Goes As Planned” is streaming now at the official Gary Douglas YouTube channel. DEEP IN THE WATER is also available now on all digital stores and streaming platforms.

Gary Douglas has long been waging battle with the forces of greed and injustice, both as rebel rocker and as a Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame attorney who spends each and every day fighting for workers rights and the victims of corporate greed. The “Nothing Ever Goes As Planned” lyric visual touches upon Douglas’ unstinting belief that people have the power, weaving striking footage of recent protests and political rallies with an optimistic – but by no means rose-colored – view that still holds the American ideal as a promised land of equality, compassion, and opportunity.

Vents Magazine recently declared the track to be “a thoughtful and relevant reflection on modern American society…Douglas has a message he wants to get across and it isn’t a particularly cheerful one, but there’s a spirit of community spicing up this song that gives listeners a sense that, no matter how bad things are or get, we’re all in this together. It’s a wise antidote to his unsparing depiction of the current world where we live.”

Indeed, “Nothing Ever Goes As Planned” also reflects Douglas’ recent legal efforts on behalf of multiple plaintiffs battling DuPont for injuries sustained by the chemical giant’s illegal dumping of the dangerous chemical C8 into the Ohio River – a landmark lawsuit soon to be dramatized in a new film from award-winning director Todd Haynes (I’m Not ThereCarol). Douglas spearheaded the milestone litigation, representing the unsuspecting communities along the Ohio River Valley to whom DuPont referred in internal documents to as “‘human receptors.”‘ Much like the recent ruling against Monsanto in California, Douglas won a series of record-shattering settlements in the multi-district litigation, earning more than $700 million in punitive damages after juries agreed DuPont had acted with a “‘conscious disregard”‘ for the health and well-being of the families living along the river in Ohio and West Virginia.

One of American music’s most urgent and uplifting live outfits, known for sold out headline dates and tours supporting such artists as Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Paul Thorn, and John Eddie, the Gary Douglas Band has slated a number of upcoming live dates surrounding the release of DEEP IN THE WATER. First up, the New York City-based band will rock their hometown with an intimate showcase performance at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall – Stage 2, slated for Saturday, October 20th at 7 pm. The Gary Douglas Band will then team with Cowboy Mouth for a pair of eagerly awaited double bills at Pensacola, FL’s Vinyl Music Hall, set for Friday, October 26th (TICKETS) and Rocky Mount, VA’s Harvester Performance Center on Friday, November 2nd (TICKETS). Additional dates will be announced soon.

“‘I always feel best at these clubs where the whole place is jumping,”‘ Douglas says. “When the place is packed and rocking, that’s it. That’s all I want. That’s what it’s about for me.”‘

Along with landmark legal victories against such monolithic foes as Big Pharma and the tobacco industry, Douglas – who was inducted into the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame earlier this year, joining such legal giants as Thurgood Marshall, Morris Dees, and William Kuntsler – has somehow found equal time to lead his Gary Douglas Band for more than four years, lighting it up night after night with blazing guitars, anthemic hooks, and a potent lyricism that rings out with its craft, confidence, and striking conviction.

DEEP IN THE WATER fully catapults The Gary Douglas Band to the forefront of Americana and heartland rock ‘n’ roll, its powerful themes and searing truths perhaps more relevant now than ever before. Produced and mixed by Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon) and co-produced by chart-topping songwriter/producer Darrell Brown (Keith Urban, Radney Foster), DEEP IN THE WATER sees the Brooklyn-born singer-songwriter backed by an all-star lineup of friends and fans that includes Southside Johnny and his Asbury Jukes keyboardist Jeff Kazee, The Mavericks’ Raul Malo and Paul Deakin, The Jayhawks’ Jennifer Gunderman, guitarist Josh Leo, saxophonist Nicholas Biello, and a host of Nashville’s finest session players. Songs such as “‘Nothing Ever Goes As Planned”‘ and “‘Devil In Her Soul”‘ reflect the deep rift in the very fabric of our society, a division and dysfunction that threatens to tear us apart without some unifying rallying cry to bring us together.

 

Upcoming Tour Dates

October 26, 2018 – Vinyl Music Hall – Pensacola, FL

Amilia K Spicer Releases New Single And Music Video “Harlan”!

Amilia K Spicer Releases New Single And Music Video “Harlan”!

After a whirlwind year of touring around the United States, Americana songwriter Amilia K Spicer is thrilled to officially release “Harlan” as her third single from “Wow and Flutter.”

“Harlan” marks Spicer’s third foray into directing music videos for this album, once again producing and filming it with production partner, Edward Romero. Using footage from Harlan and rural Pennsylvania (Spicer’s childhood state), the video follows Spicer’s personal journey to the birthplace of her father. It merges landscapes from both, with vacant lots and abandoned buildings becoming farm landscapes with a golden hue.

I know what I cannot see,” she sings. “Dove tailed swallow been followin’ me. I cannot reach it, I can’t outrun – take these halves and make them one.”

Spicer’s lyrics are full of vivid imagery, and sensual confessions. As she sings of her dreams “filled with waltzes,” describes the whisky running through her “like Mississippi mud,” and remembers the sound of “a fiddle playing in a child’s room,” the scenes evoke a crystal-clear glimpse into her nostalgia.

When Spicer traveled to Harlan to film the music video, she searched for her Father’s home, only to find a mostly barren lot at the address. “I wandered around,” Spicer recalls, “and noticed something shiny in the dirt. Turned out to be several pieces of coal, which I now have. Sometimes a lump of coal is a beautiful gift.”

In “Harlan,” what American Songwriter Magazine said of “Wow and Flutter” rings true: It’s “a timeless brand-new Americana classic.” “Harlan” debuted September 7th.

 

About Amilia K Spicer:
Amilia K Spicer’s latest album is the triumph Wow and Flutter, which is Spicer’s third release. It landed on many year-end best-of lists for 2017. Despite the acclaim, Spicer retains an underground mystique to her, perhaps due to her “don’t fence me in” attitude (also the name of her record label). In addition to performing, Spicer spends time traveling (recently to Tibet and Bhutan), showcasing her photography, and directing/producing indie films.

Throughout 2018, Spicer performed frequently in the Americana festival circuit. She wowed fans with a full band set at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, as well as the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in Oklahoma. Furthermore, she’s performed more intimately at venues across the US, including 30A Songwriters Festival in January.

Ashley J, Dance Pop Sensation Releases Anticipated Debut EP ‘Satisfied’

Ashley J, Dance Pop Sensation Releases Anticipated Debut EP ‘Satisfied’

On March 23, 2018, dance pop sensation Ashley J released her debut EP, Satisfied. On the EP, Ashley combines her hit singles with unheard releases that she’s sure her fans will love. Ashley’s vocals swirl amidst innovative hooks and slick dance beats. Satisfied is fresh, modern, addictive, and meant to be devoured in one sitting – but it will stick in your head for the rest of the day.

Ashley’s talents for songwriting shine on Satisfied. She’s come a long way since the days of writing lyrics on her parents’ bathroom walls. In those days, the words would be painted over. Now, they linger in your mind. They’re thoughtful, resonant, and get stuck in your head just as much as the earworm hooks. From the triumphant “Unbreakable,” in which Ashley finds the courage to pursue her inner strength following heartbreak, to the soaring love song, “Satisfied” – the EP covers a vast array of human emotions. It’s mostly explosive, but when Ashley wants you to feel something quietly, just for a moment, she draws you in – then drops the beat.

Satisfied is almost constant energy, filled with dance anthems, and its premiere track in particular, “Trapped,” enjoyed four consecutive weeks at #1 on the European Independent Music Charts. Previous releases made it on the Billboard Top 10 Dance Charts, and given the sheer triumph that is Satisfied, a similar destiny awaits this new music from Ashley J, the Orlando native who started her own production company, then steadily conquered the world.

The five-track Satisfied starts with the already massively successful “Trapped,” and also includes “Unbreakable,” “Satisfied,” “Like You Used To,” and “When I Come Home To You.” Though the songs may differ in the level of party they bring (particularly the bookend tracks), throughout the entire EP, Ashley J’s powerhouse voice dazzles. She is a true talent, from the pen to the page, to her voice in the studio.

About Ashley J
Three-time Billboard charting artist Ashley J has a fascinatingly diverse background: artistically and musically. She packs a wallop of a voice that fuses an infectious blend of vocal dexterity, moods and range. Ashley tempers her vocal prowess with poignant lyrics and a kindred soul as an emerging songwriter/singer. And it’s all aptly and full exposed on her new pop EP, Satisfied, released through her own production company imprint, Bombshell Music, Inc. The EP features five tracks self-penned by the emergent Ashley J, in collaboration with many established producers, including Lucas & Adrian Rezza, Jamie Sellers, and Warwick Matthews.

On the title track “Satisfied,” Ashley worked with the multi-platinum, Grammy & Emmy-winning Narada Michael Walde, who called Ashley “a real American sweetheart with a big voice and lots of energy! She has soul and her beautiful smile lights up the room.”

Multiple singles off the EP have topped the European Independent Music Charts, particularly “Trapped,” which nabbed #1 for four weeks in a row. Her remixed singles of “One and One,” “Cali” and “Dare Ya” each made it to Billboard’s Top 10 Dance Charts in 2014 – 2016. The jubilant pop queen enjoys broad global appeal, with many drawn to her stellar, buoyant music. Step by step, Ashley continues her journey to become a revered figure in the world of pop music.

Ashley J Releases Third Single “Satisfied” Jan 26

Ashley J Releases Third Single “Satisfied” Jan 26

(Orlando, FL) 1/12/17-Singer-songwriter Ashley J is getting ready to release her title-track “Satisfied” January 26thfrom her upcoming Spring EP. “Satisfied” follows the lead of two incredible singles already released, “Trapped” and “Unbreakable.” With the success of these two singles, being released through her label Bombshell Music, Inc., “Satisfied” is slated to live up to its name.

 

“Satisfied” marks the most experimental track on the forthcoming EP release thus far. Recorded in Canada with producers Adrian and Lucas Rezza, the track is much more geared toward her growing dance and electronic music fans. The track itself continues to showcase Ashley’s powerhouse vocals, and her songwriting variety. Ashley herself describes the single as “…the point in any relationship where everything is perfect and being on cloud nine. Almost like a euphoric state of mind.”

The new single adds to the narrative created by already released tracks “Unbreakable” and “Trapped” as the explorative follow up to the narrative of a young woman realizing her potential in all aspects of life. As she said in a recent interview with Celebmix, “Be yourself. Show people who you are and what you want to represent. And if you don’t have it figured out, don’t worry. No one else does.”

 

“Satisfied” is a poppy domineering and captivating number that liberates her in an entirely new way. Fitting nicely with her already released singles, it’s another step on her journey of empowerment. Her vocals shine euphorically over a glitch synth pop beat in the breathtaking chorus.

 

The 3-time Billboard charging artist is no stranger to the attention as her most recent single “Unbreakable” charted at #2 and “Trapped” had its incredible 5-week #1 long run on the European Independent Chart. Ashley J. has been cranking out impressive feats as a new independent pop music artist.

 

About Ashley J:

Growing up in Orlando, the multi-talented songwriter/singer was influenced by Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and her all time musical hero, Dolly Parton, Ashley J started songwriting and singing at a very early age. Her musical style intertwines unapologetic pop with enticing electronic melodies. She earned a BA degree in Business Law from the University of North Texas and attended the Dr. Phillips High School of Performing Arts in Orlando, where she scored leading roles in theatre, dance and musical productions.
