Brian Fallon & The Howling Weather
Brian Fallon first rose to commercial and critical acclaim as the singer/songwriter/guitarist of The Gaslight Anthem, in addition to other beloved acts including The Horrible Crowes and Molly & The Zombies.
Fallon released his first solo record, Painkillers, in 2016. The album received widespread critical applause, with Entertainment Weekly acclaiming Fallon as “a first-rate songwriter with a dozen tunes that wax philosophical about love and the human condition – the dude’s like a modern day Nietzsche with a sleeve tattoo.” “Painkillers suggests (Fallon) really was holding his best songs back,” noted MOJO while Kerrang! declared it “a straight-up fantastic return to Brian’s rock ‘n’ roll roots.” “(Fallon’s) version of the American Dream is tied not to anything abstract or political, but to songwriters like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Roy Orbison,” wrote Consequence of Sound, “and in some ways Fallon’s version is even more effective than those of his forebears.” “It feels a little like a new morning,” raved Rolling Stone. “For a guy whose songs have always traded in the pains and pleasures of nostalgia, the Fallon of Painkillers seems to have arrived at a newfound, forward-looking clarity.”
Brian Fallon will release a new solo album in 2018 on Island Records.
Nashville’s own, Caitlin Rose doesn’t like to categorize her music, but what she creates is beyond easy classification. Her lyrics – visceral, illustrative, witty, and wry – paired with timeless and tireless melody, easily put her in a category alongside some of the most revered songwriters of our time. “The Stand-In” released in 2013 on ATO records seamlessly melds pedal steel guitar with restless pop beats, creating lush instrumentals that build on the more spare construction of its precursor, “Own Side Now” (2010, ATO Records). Both albums have received praises from the likes of The Guardian for Rose’s undeniable strong suit, her talent for storytelling through song. “For me the intention behind any song is writing a good one,” Rose says “and to create something worthy enough to share with other people” Rose’s songs, however, are way beyond worthy. They’re downright necessary. She’ll be hitting the road in 2018 in advance of her forthcoming album, slated for a mid-year release via ATO Records.
