JASON MRAZ announces album YES! out 14th July

Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Jason Mraz has announced details of his much-anticipated new album. YES! will be released via Atlantic Records on the 14th July.

One of the world’s hardest working and most beloved artists, Jason Mraz’s journey has propelled him from the San Diego coffee house scene to arenas, amphitheaters, and stadiums all over the world.

Jason Mraz’s fifth studio release, YES! sees the San Diego-based troubadour teaming up with his longtime friends and collaborators, Raining Jane, for a purely acoustic and more intimate sound than heard on his previous releases.

The lead single “Love Someone” which is out on the 30th June can be listened to in the video below.

Additionally, Jason will be releasing live video performances, “Live from the Om Studio at Mraz Organics’ Avocado Ranch,” directly on his Facebook page to accompany tracks that will be unveiled every Monday.

While somewhat intimate and esoteric, YES! still remains a Mraz-like pop album and  features classical instruments, cello, sitar and vintage guitars and sings about universal themes of love, faith, healing, environmental stewardship and inner peace.

Jason will be announcing his YES! world tour dates in June.  The tour will kick off the U.S. in August with Europe planned for September, Asia and Australia later in 2014 and South America in 2015.

LED ZEPPELIN – Celebration Day

(Los Angeles, Date, 2012) – On December 10, 2007,  Led Zeppelin took the stage at London’s O2 Arena to headline a tribute concert for dear friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. What followed was a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues-infused rock ’n’ roll that instantly became part of the legend of Led Zeppelin. Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, to perform 16 songs from their celebrated catalog including landmark tracks “Whole Lotta Love,” “Rock And Roll,” “Kashmir,” and “Stairway To Heaven.”

Although 20 million people applied for tickets, the band’s first headline show in 27 years was seen only by the 18,000 ticket holders who were fortunate enough to have secured seats through the worldwide lottery.

LED ZEPPELIN PRESS CONFERENCE – 21 September 2012

“Last memory? Getting through it all. It was pretty good I think it worked out really well but it was a relief come the end of it I have to say” John Paul Jones

“To get back in the middle of that music was a spectacular experience. I was approaching it from a different angle so to get through it and out the other side was not much short of miraculous but great fun” Robert Plant

“I remember walking up the steps onto the stage and then the moment right at the very end of it. The rest of it has past very very quickly but I knew that what we had intended to do which was to go out there and stand up and be counted and that people who didn’t know Led Zeppelin but had heard a lot about it to show why we were what we were…” Jimmy Page

“Five years is like five minutes in Zeppelin time I am surprised we got it out so quickly” John Paul Jones

“There was a willingness to do this” Jimmy Page

“The whole concert was a fantasy sequence really.” Jimmy Page

[when asked about the emotions that were in the room with regards to Jason Bonham representing his dad on the drums] “His vigour was so fantastic… he drove us… Jason would blast through the whole thing… It was peculiar and strange at times but at the same time it was very rewarding for all of us and it really did work as a performance, him driving us on.” Robert Plant

“There was a real feeling of camaraderie, and actually, successful adventure.” Robert Plant

“I wasn’t aware of anybody being there apart from us on the stage and communicating with an audience. I heard there were like three generations of Presley’s there which was quite something.” Jimmy Page

“The idea of going to play the O2 wasn’t to make a DVD or a film or anything like that at all. It just so happened that we had all of this material going on behind us… it just made sense to record it at least to record it for our own collection and our own amusement. It is what it is now though and I’m really pleased you are all enjoying it, because it’s great.“ Jimmy Page

“The concert was what it was, there was very little that needed to be messed about with because we really did it well in the first place.” Jimmy Page

when asked about what rock ‘n’ roll means to you now compared to 30 or 40 years ago] “That music that I heard when I was 12 or 13 really seduced me and still does.” Jimmy Page

“The blues and rock ‘n’ roll for me is still part of the pulse of my life.” Robert Plant

 

Graham Robins – THE SHIPPING NEWS

THE SHIPPING NEWS is the brand new album release on The Global Sessions Label by singer songwriter Graham Robins emphasising his love of soul, blues, country and Gospel music along with the occasional dip into Celtic and Folk; all delivered in his signature rich deep voice. The album takes the listener on a journey into the heart and soul of a singer songwriter who has composed a well crafted collection of songs that underpins an experience and love of roots music in all its many forms.

Stand out cuts include the stunning title track The Shipping News, where Graham’s vocal delivery teases every emotion, guaranteed to move the listener, the pedal steel led Now All Of The Heartache’s Gone, the soulful Snow Blindand emotionally charged Roll Back The Years, but special mention must be made of the stunning Drown In Your Eyes which really shows a songwriter at the top of his game. This is an album of twelve killer songs, no fillers here.

Graham Robins truly is an outstanding singer songwriter and live performer, with two previous albums under his belt, SPIRIT WITHIN and ROLL BACK THE YEARS but with THE SHIPPING NEWS he has taken his recorded output to another level. Graham’s soulful voice and unique guitar style knit together perfectly wrapped around lyrics gathered from a lifetime of experience. Whether performed live or on record, his delivery becomes a passionate embrace of his heartfelt songs, revealing great depth and sincerity.

The album was recorded at the Echo Studios in Buckingham and was produced by Graham himself. Graham, who plays electric and acoustic guitars, harmonica and supplies lead vocals, is joined by guest musicians Stuart Buckle on Dobro and guitar, Dave Baldwin on keyboards (Van Morrison, Chris Farlowe, James Hunter, Larry Garner, The Norman Beaker Band), John Devine who supplies Uillean pipes (Wild Willy Barratt, Sleeping Dogs), Olly Dowlen on upright bass (Don Mescal, writer for Ronan Keating), Mark Burr on drums, Rol Walker on percussion, Cliff Weston gives us pedal steel, Cliff Ward on violin and not forgetting Jade Rhiannon Ward on backing vocals.

Graham Robins has been performing live and recording music since the mid 1960’s and has played at The Edinburgh Festival, The North Devon Music Festival, The Castlebar International Blues Festival and The Westport Arts Festival. He has shared the stage with numerous artists including The Waterboys, Seth Lakeman, Glen Tilbrook, Georgie Fame and Chris Farlowe. He was a 2008 Indie Award Nominee and tours the U.K. and Ireland regularly either solo or with his band and also with virtuoso guitarist and former Van Morrison sideman Ronnie Johnson. At London’s Borderline as part of Shana Morrison’s 2007 UK tour they performed together on Van Morrison’s Sometimes We Cry to great acclaim.

With influences that are vast and eclectic that go way back to the days of tuning into Radio Luxembourg and Radio Caroline, listening to Stax, Motown and Atlantic Records and with a love of artists with cross border musical links, it comes as no surprise that THE SHIPPING NEWS is an album covering many musical genres.

Graham Robins is constantly playing live shows up and down the UK and to support the release of THE SHIPPING NEWS will be touring the UK over the winter of 2011/2012.

Release date – November 7th 2011 on the Global Sessions label…

“Magical rootsy stuff, gloriously uplifting and with atmosphere by the spadefull!”
