NEW YORK, N.Y. — Paradiddle Records announces the release of Willie Nile Uncovered (Celebrating 40 Years of Music) on August 21, 2020. This two-CD collection features 26 songs from the New York rocker’s entire recording history performed by an array of both veteran and emerging artists, each putting their unique stamp on his songs.

The set celebrates the brilliant songwriting of one of rock ’n’ roll’s unsung heroes, an artist whose diehard fan base has included Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, and Little Steven.

Paying tribute to Nile on Uncovered are Nils Lofgren, Graham Parker, Richard Barone, Richard Shindell, Elliott Murphy, John Gorka, Slaid Cleaves, James Maddock, Dan Bern, Kenny White, Rod Picott, Jen Chapin, Caroline Doctorow, Emily Duff, Pete Mancini and Iridesense among others, interpreting Willie’s songs in a range of styles -— rock, Americana, country, roots, folk and more.

Nile’s album New York at Night, released this past May 15. An earlier album, also a paean to New York, The Streets of New York, was hailed as “a platter for the ages” by Uncut magazine. Rolling Stone listed The Innocent Ones as one of the “Top Ten Best Under-the-Radar Albums of 2011,” and BBC Radio called it “THE rock ’n’ roll album of the year.” 

“I’m humbled and deeply grateful to all the artists involved in this project for taking the time to record such beautiful versions of these songs,” says Nile. “When I first heard there was going to be a tribute album I was a little embarrassed as I don’t feel I’m any more deserving than anyone else for an album like this but after a few glasses of red wine and hearing the album I was elated. It was startling to hear such unique, different and poignant interpretations of my songs. Heartfelt thanks to all involved for making this songwriter’s journey through the back roads of a soul more than worth the effort.” 

About Willie Nile:

“One of the most brilliant singer-songwriters of the past thirty years” —The New Yorker

“One of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene …” —The New York Times

“Willie Nile’s artistic renaissance continues unabated.” —No Depression

About Willie Nile Uncovered:

“I couldn’t be happier.  Everybody did great versions!” —Willie Nile

“Many artist tribute albums miss the mark and fall short in capturing the spirit of the artist they are honoring. This is definitely not the case with Willie Nile Uncovered … Paradiddle assembled a who’s who of contemporary singer-songwriters who are exceptional message makers and tunesmiths in their own right …It’s an extraordinary tribute that gives justice to the brilliant Willie Nile catalog.” —Norm Prusslin, co-founder of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, President/Chair Emeritus Intercollegiate Broadcasting System, and founding GM, WUSB, Stony Brook, NY

Tommy Botz’ Story of Loss and Redemption Helps Others Heal Through Music

Tommy Botz’ Story of Loss and Redemption Helps Others Heal Through Music

Fighting the Demon of Substance Abuse, Songwriter Inspires Change Through the Power of Words and Melody

 

 

May, 2020 (Cleveland, OH) — From a decades long battle with alcoholism,  which led him down the dark path of incarceration and homelessness, to finding sobriety and accomplishing his lifelong dream to professionally record his music, Songwriter Tommy Botz’s story is both a cautionary tale and an uplifting journey of redemption.

 

With much of today’s modern country music often glamorizing cold beers and heartache in an ever-continuous chain as a way to deal with pain, Tommy Botz is instead bringing his true-to-life struggle and its consequences to life through his music. 

 

Though prominent in many of the songs off his latest release “Family & Friends”, a powerful light is shined on his struggle with the bottle and the lives it can impact in his single “Maggie”.

 

LISTEN TO “MAGGIE” HERE:

MAGGIE 

 

Botz has also penned a heartbreaking yet beautiful ballad in “Teddy Bear”, a song written for a fellow inmate while locked up in an Ohio penitentiary. “He knew that I wrote songs and came to my cell in tears one night because he just found out that his little girl had passed away” Says Botz, “His wife was losing her mind questioning her faith and he asked if i could write something for his daughter’s memory.

 

LISTEN TO “TEDDY BEAR” HERE:

TEDDY BEAR 

 

Additionally, Singer Rose Marie, Tommy’s fiancé who has stood by his side for 30 years, sings on the powerful gospel song “He’s Coming Back”.

 

LISTEN TO “HE’S COMING BACK” HERE:

HE’S COMIN BACK 

 

Now sober for over 16 years, you can see Tommy has truly come a long way. Since finishing his incarceration, he’s been off the streets for good – living quietly at The Ed Keating Center, a halfway house in Ohio, after having “crawled through the doors” on May 3rd, 2004 as a “homeless drunk with nowhere to go”. 

 

There he met a kind old man named Jack Mulhall who told him that if he followed some direction he would never have to live like that again. “I wasn’t always a homeless drunk. I had dreams and goals like every young man has. I always loved country and gospel music.” says Botz, whose early interest led him to become the lead singer in two bands – The Chevells and The Caesars 5 early in his music career, winning a Battle of the Bands and winding up with an RCA recording contract. But after the loss of their guitar player and their contract being pulled, Botz’s drinking got worse and soon penitentiaries became a way of life.

 

From broken marriages to lost jobs, no car, and no license – living to drink and drinking to live became his routine. Finally, with several years of sobriety and working under his belt  – he made the decision to go for his dream and finally record some of the over 200+ songs he had written over the years.

 

“One night while I was praying I heard in my heart – go for your dream and I will put someone in your life who believes in your music”, and after contacting Ante Up Studios owner Michael Seifert, the two began a collaboration that would ultimately become his 6-song EP “Family and Friends”.

Mark Newman Releases Brand New LP “Empirical Truth”

Mark Newman  Releases Brand New LP “Empirical Truth”

July, 2019 (New York, NY) — It can certainly be said that a labor of love is not much of a labor at all, and with singer/songwriter and guitarist Mark Newman’s latest release “Empirical Truth” (via Danal Music) this is very much the case, as he’s proven once again his power of true musicianship.

 

Packed with Newman’s usual penchant for dynamic storytelling and political commentary throughout his lyrics, Empirical Truth certainly lives up to its name. With songs ranging in topic from the state of gun control in the U.S. to the Dakota Access Pipeline, an innocent man blamed for murder, love and loss and even a few covers from Little Feat, John Oates, and more – the album is brimming with a dynamic mix of Americana/Blues/Pop and slide-guitar work from start to finish. Newman is joined on the LP by Drummers Shawn Murray and John Michel, Keyboardists Kevin McKendree, James Dower and Mark Bonder, Bassist Craig Privett and Vocalists Naomi Margolin, Janet Montalbo, Maag Stanley, Steve Bluth, Jeff Lubin, Jacob Koch, and Norm Madnick.

 

GET “EMPIRICAL TRUTH” ON SPOTIFY !

 

GET “EMPIRICAL TRUTH” ON APPLE MUSIC !

 

A New York native, Mark Newman’s musical prowess has taken him around the world several times over, playing with an eclectic mix of noted musical talents from Sting to Elvis Costello, and Travis Tritt as well as his own solo work. A multi stringsman, Mark has mastered electric/acoustic/lap steel guitar as well as the mandolin and dobro, and with a voice reminiscent of many rock and blues men before him- it has the familiarity of an old friend yet the power and soul of many of today’s rock, soul, folk and R&B icons. For over five years, Newman and fellow songwriter Naomi Margolin have run the “Music From the Hive”  Singer/Songwriter Series, and for the past three years- “The Original Music Series” for bands, in an attempt to keep original music alive on Long Island. 

 

Although Newman has played a ton of exciting solo and full-band showcases–notably Delbert McClinton at Highline Ballroom just last month and Les Dudek at My Father’s Place at the Roslyn Hotel, The Paramount in Huntington opening for The Doobie Brothers, The Space at Westbury opening for the one and only Don Felder and David Bromberg on separate occasions, The Blue Note in Tokyo, Japan, and NYC’s Legendary Bitter End–he has also worked alongside so many soul, blues, and rock greats of our time including John Oates (Hall and Oates), Jim McCarty (The Yardbirds), Willy DeVille (Mink DeVille), Sam The Sham, Bobby Whitlock (Derek and the Dominos) and Sam Moore (Sam & Dave)!

 

Past releases include 2010’s “Walls of Jericho” filled with intricate guitar work and mixed with a plethora of sounds from hard rock to a lighter more Dylanesque folk tinge, and 2015’s  “Brussels” – a live acoustic-driven EP that packs a bluesy punch reminiscent of Clapton’s “Unplugged” album through both the guitar work and raw vocal power. His latest LP “Empirical Truth” is due later this year.

 

Empirical Truth Track Listing:

 

  1. Scapegoat 
  2. Life Without You
  3. Mississippi Mile
  4. When I Aim My Gun
  5. Seven Days
  6. One More Song About A Highway
  7. Sharin’ The Blues
  8. Pipeline
  9. Are You Lonely For Me
  10. Everything You Know
  11. Roll Um Easy
  12. Lycanthropy

Other powerful tunes include the gospel inspired “We Will Not Be Forgotten“, sure to be the new anthem for 2019 with inspiring and empowering lyrics that will have you singing them over and over again.

GuitarExpo1

The NY Guitar Show & Exposition proudly announces Taylor Guitars will again display in the lobby of the 8th Annual NY Guitar Show and retain Taylor’s Silver Sponsorship for 2019.

David Kaye, Taylor’s trade show manager, notes “We worked with founder Rich Johnson in 2018 to take over the building’s lobby, and it worked out so well for us we did it again this year for 2019. We will have an even larger display of new Taylor Guitars including a NEW round-shouldered dreadnought!”

Established in 1974 by Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug, Taylor Guitars has evolved into one of the world’s leading manufacturers of premium acoustic and electric guitars and through the NY Guitar Show partnership has seen a dramatic rise in the survey responses of those owning and enjoying Taylor Guitars in the NY Metro region.

Again I can’t thank David & Taylor Guitars enough for working with us the last couple of years in the sometimes trying ambience that goes with a full blown guitar show. After some rethinking we were able to come to a new display pattern & set up that will allow Taylor’s Guitars to be heard as they are intended to be, with the full nuance, clarity and complex tones Taylor Guitars offer.” said NY Guitar Expo founder Richard Johnson.
