Sam Riggs and the Night People
Outrun the Sun
2013 debut album from the Country singer/songwriter and his band. Produced by Erik Herbst (Eli Young Band, Bowling For Soup, Josh Abbott Band), Outrun The Sun signals a lyrical comprehension that reaches far beyond Sam’s years, and musical compositions that are both brave and progressive. The driving will in ‘Longshot; the matter of abuse in ‘The Change’; the perfect vocal accompaniment by Hubbard himself on ‘Angola’s Lament’; and the love-provoked courage in ‘Lighthouse’ are just a few of the towering giants included in this release.












Lincoln Durham
Exodus of the Deemed Unrighteous
Making a big impression with his white hot debut The Shovel vs. The Howling Bones in 2012, and his debut UK tour last autumn, Lincoln Durham will be previewing his eagerly anticipated second album Exodus of The Deemed Unrighteous on his second UK tour from the end of August. Lincoln Durham‘s second record Exodus Of The Deemed Unrighteous is an edgier, more raw and angst-filled big brother to its predecessor The Shovel vs. The Howling Bones. Produced by George Reiff, who co-produced Lincoln’s debut record, and recorded at The Finishing School with percussionist, Rick Richards, Exodus has a biting tale to tell.












Brandy Clark
12 Stories
2013 debut from the Country singer/songwriter. The album is full of diverse characters and stays true to Brandy’s self-proclaimed dark comedy theme. The woman in the first single, ‘Stripes,’ fantasizes about killing her cheating husband but doesn’t want to be caught dead in an orange jumpsuit. ‘Pray to Jesus’ describes a woman asking Jesus for help but plays the lottery, just in case. The bored housewife in ‘Get High’ escapes daily drudgery by rolling joints at the kitchen table. Prior to 12 Stories, Brandy penned songs for other artists. Reba McEntire and Kenny Rogers have both recorded her songs. Darius Rucker, Sheryl Crow and Kacey Musgraves have Brandy compositions on their albums. The Band Perry gave Brandy her first #1 single with ‘Better Dig Two,’ followed shortly after by another #1 in ‘Mama’s Broken Heart,’ cut by Miranda Lambert.
