Girls Guns & Glory
Girls Guns & Glory
For the past eight years, Boston’s rising stars Girls Guns and Glory have been making a name for themselves through relentless touring (about 200 gigs a year worldwide), the release of four critically acclaimed records, a slew of local awards, including being the Boston Music Awards first act of its genre to win Act of the Year, and international awards (Independent Artist of the Year at the French Country Music Awards). And, now, the hard-working band is refining their focus to the roots of rock ‘n’ roll with a twist of country on their fifth album, “Good Luck,” due on February 4, 2014 on Lonesome Day Records.

The foursome (Ward Hayden on vocals/guitar, Paul Dilley on electric and upright bass/piano, Josh Kiggans on drums/percussion, and Chris Hersch on lead guitar/banjo) found inspiration for this record from early ’50s rock ‘n’ roll icons such as Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, and Buddy Holly, as well as country greats like Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.
Kelly Ravin & Lowell Thompson
Music found under blue collars. Kelly Ravin is a musician hailing from the Green Mountain State of Vermont. He writes songs about real life. Kelly's latest album, "Leathered, Weathered, Worn, and Wiser", was recorded live in a tattoo shop in Belfast, ME with shotgun shell mics, and a room full of friends and family. Scratchy vocals, and gritty guitars seem to explain it all. So now, the vans packed, the road is clear, and there isn't an end in sight.

"I first heard Lowell at a private party in Washington, D.C. I immediately stopped talking to people and listened, really getting into his superb guitar playing, excellent voice and songs.

Then I got him as opener for some gigs with my band the Rumour, who were equally impressed. Listen to him."
