VIDEO: “Heroes” By Brittany Campbell

Brittany CampbellBrittany Campbell, who for some reason is not yet one of the biggest names in pop music, has released an incredible animated video for her track “Heroes.” The song is the title track from the 2014 album, which we told you about here.

Great song, great performance, great production, and great video. What else could you possibly want?

Jesse Terry Bonnaroo Appearance, Italian and U.S. Tours

Jesse Terry is a man on the move. In the past couple of years, after extensive touring in the U.S., he’s made a few surgical strikes overseas, bringing his intimate style of Americana to the UK, eastern Europe, and New Zealand. Now he has set his sights on Italy and will play seven dates across the country starting April 10th (plus a quick stopover in Switzerland, where he will play a return gig at Basel). See the dates below.

And just this week, Terry announced the big news that he’s been added to the Club Stage at the Bonnaroo Festival, which takes place in Manchester, TN, in June. Check here for all the upcoming dates, including a U.S. tour this spring with Rebecca Loebe.

Delta Rae’s ‘After It All’ Out Now

callout-RevDelta Rae was a relatively new and still-evolving band when they joined OurStage and earned the opportunity to open for Hanson way back in 2010. Since then, they’ve blown up to headlining status, signed a record deal, and are now releasing their second full-length album, After It All. This LP showcases an increasingly rare thing – a band that came together organically, and was given time and room to grow into a unique hybrid of roots-pop, with their classic rock influences shining through a meticulously modern production. Click the album cover to order it now.

We chatted with Delta Rae about their experiences with OurStage a while back, and you can watch that here. The band is on tour now:

Face Dances

Pretty cool. West Coast Shaving shared this image that shows a composite of every member in some well-known bands. Click-bait? Maybe, but pretty good click-bait. Who would have guessed that Bill Wyman would finally turn out to be the dominant Rolling Stone?
