The Tarlatans Announce EP Release Show at Charleston Music Hall

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2014 by Lowcountry Boil

Charleston based Rock-Roots band The Tarlatans will be celebrating the release of their highly anticipated EP “Good Luck” at The Charleston Music Hall with a show including Charleston favorite Steven Fiore and Volcanoes in The Kitchen on Saturday August 16th at 8 PM.

NEW TARLATAN PROMO PICBeginning in February 2014, The Tarlatans recorded with acclaimed musician, composer, producer, Jay Clifford (Jump, Little Children) for a six-song EP.  The recording features four new songs as well as updated versions of older songs including the regional radio hit, “Been Dreaming.”  Clifford’s influence on The Tarlatans is similar to how most musicians feel about him, as they cite him and Jump Little Children as major influences. Says drummer Blake Shorter, ‘”Now that the process of recording the EP is over and we can actually sit back and listen to the final results, we’re so thrilled that we were able to have Jay Clifford as our producer. After working with Jay I think we all agree that the man is a musical genius, and some of the things musically that he guided us and inspired us to do worked out really well.” Lead guitar player and songwriter Ryan Williams continues, “We had a blast making the EP, working with Jay, and recording at Hello Telescope and Charleston Sound.  This record is quite a step up from our self-made album a while back. We couldn’t be more proud of the EP or more excited to have a great sounding product.”  In turn, Clifford was excited to be working with the band: “The Tarlatans have a sincerity in their songwriting that puts them in the same class as The Avett Brothers and The Lumineers.” 

Along with G. Love, the record has been blessed by the likes of Josh Kaler (Slow Runner / Butch Walker), and string work from local heavyweights, Micah Gangwer, Peter Kiral, and Norbert Lewandowski.

Over the past two years The Tarlatans have played every type of venue, bar, and club in the Southeast and always look forward to being in their adopted hometown of Charleston for shows.  Playing The Charleston Pour House with The Wild Feather, The Music Farm with Jars of Clay, and headlining The Windjammer have all been bucket list items for the band, and they are crossing another item off the list by performing their new tunes at The Charleston Music Hall.

Tickets for The Tarlatans EP Release show are available online at charlestonmusichall.com, at the Charleston Music Hall Box office, 37 John Street (Tues. – Fri. 10am – 6pm843-853-2252), at Monster Music and Movies or Cats Music or at the Etix Hotline: 1-800-514-3849. Tickets at the door Day Of Show will be $13.50.

 

Triple Album Release Show at Charleston Music Hall

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 7, 2013 by Lowcountry Boil

1274586_10201568259555662_1845057862_oCharleston Music Hall is proud to announce a triple album release show from three of Charleston’s hardest working musicians, Guilt Ridden Troubadour, Gaslight Street, and Ryan Bonner on October 12 at the Charleston Music Hall. Guilt Ridden Troubadour will be releasing “Gone,” Gaslight Street will be releasing “Heavy Wind,’ and Ryan Bonner will be releasing “Only When It’s Burning”. Everyone who buys a ticket online will receive a free song from each of the albums. Doors open at 7:00 pm and the concert will begin at 8:00. Advanced tickets are on sale at eTix.

Guilt Ridden Troubadour’s sound is more alt-country and Americana and the music is more lyrically-driven while still bringing the Southern rock edge. Gaslight Street’s soul music will never go out of style as it melds pure Southern rock with charismatic vocals, traipsing the boundaries of blues and funk. Ryan Bonner has a thoughtful-nuanced attention to detail as his most serious songs content wise have the most whimsical music attached to it and the songs where the melody is the most relaxed tend to be the most personal and in-depth.

Grass in the Hall

March 1st at the Charleston Music Hall

7:30 The BAREFOOT MOVEMENT
8:30 CUMBERLAND RIVER
10:00 TOWN MOUNTAIN

This is a kick off event for the Sweet Grass Music Festival on March 16 and The Charleston Bluegrass Festival on April 5 & 6.

Tickets $10 at eTix, $12 at door

TOWN MOUNTAIN: This Asheville, NC Bluegrass band finds themselves becoming one of the preeminent torchbearers of their craft, facing a promising future. “Centered around strong, soulful vocals, and poised to stay put,” says Woody Platt of the Steep Canyon Rangers, “Town Mountain are true to bluegrass in all the right ways and this new project keeps them firmly connected to the traditions of the genre, while also allowing them to reach out into the broad horizon of string band music. Leave the Bottle comes highly recommended.” Always contributing to the evolution of the bluegrass form, they toss influences as varied as surf-rock, gospel, and honky-tonk country into their field of play.

CUMBERLAND RIVER: This band’s roots have run deep in the Harlan County Kentucky hills for generations. Even with the band’s progressive sound, you can still hear the heritage of traditional bluegrass music in their songs. Watch FX Network’s TV show JUSTIFIED to hear their music.

THE BAREFOOT MOVEMENT: This quartet of immensely talented musicians are from North & South Carolina and Tennessee whose music successfully melds Americana influences with the invigoration of acoustic modern rock and jazz. Their sound simultaneously captures the rustic beauty of old Southern front porch Bluegrass improvisation while being immediately accessible to the modern era.
