94.9 FM THE RIVER PRESENTS ANDERSON EAST LIVE AT THE RECORD EXCHANGE OCT. 13 – HIS ONLY SHOW IN TOWN!

anderson-east_wide-e8ec26366e230e965cac4f191c80f2e2037da1ef-s900-c8594.9 FM The River presents Anderson East live at The Record Exchange (1105 W. Idaho St. in Downtown Boise) at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13. This is East’s only show in town! As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages.

ABOUT ANDERSON EAST

anderson_east_cover“…Eclectic, fully formed debut album.” —NPR Music

“With an earthy rasp beyond his years, he draws inspiration from Tom Jones and the soul-rock songwriter George Jackson.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

“These are Sam Cooke-caliber love songs…He is a spectacular talent, and releases like this one are as thrilling as they come.”— Daytrotter

“His voice is full of gravely soul, easily tackling both piano ballads and foot-stompers, going head-to-head with a gospel chorus thanks to a killer range and often heartbreaking lyrics.” —Rolling Stone Country, “20 Reasons to Love This Year”

Anderson East’s full-length debut, Delilah, is out now to widespread acclaim on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records—the first release on producer Dave Cobb’s new imprint. In celebration of the release, East recently made his network television debut on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” performing his new single “Satisfy Me.” Watch the full performance here: http://tinyurl.com/AndersonSethMeyers.

In support of the album, East is performing nationwide throughout the fall, including dates alongside The Lone Bellow and Jason Isbell. Of his recent performance at Triple A Radio’s NON-COMMvention, Dan DeLuca of the Philadelphia Inquirer praises, “Anderson East was an eye opener. I assumed the Alabama singer was a roots-rock-country singer, from bills I’d seen his name on. But he is in fact a wicked soul wailer with a huge voice, a skinny white guy with a raspy, weathered sound coming out his body that defied expectation. Definitely worthy of further investigation.” Additionally, Entertainment Weekly asserts, “Anderson East likes to groove. Live, his shoofly pie-sweet drawl and blues-influenced backing is simultaneously euphoric and mommy-and-daddy-need-some-time-alone sexy.”

Released to widespread acclaim, NPR Music’s Ann Powers calls Delilah “…a homecoming of sorts for this Athens, Ala., native, whose shoofly pie-sweet drawl and fondness for Wilson Pickett-style shouts fit perfectly within the classic soul settings he and Cobb create…East has a gruff way with phrasing and a lot of youthful enthusiasm, but he’s learning his way into mastery. There’s thought behind every rhythmic push and melismatic twist,” while Yahoo Music declares, “It’s hard to not get excited by this authentic-sounding slice of southern R&B courtesy of Nashville’s Anderson East…No excess, expressive stuff, and the sort of sincere musical statement 2015 sorely needs.”

In addition to this critical praise, “Satisfy Me” recently debuted at #28 on the AAA Radio chart with rotation at various tastemaker stations, including L.A.’s KCSN, Philadelphia’s WXPN, Nashville’s WRLT and Kansas City’s KTBG. A live video of the song, which was shot at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Ala., premiered at NPR Music and can now be viewed here: http://tinyurl.com/AndersonSatisfyMe.

Of Anderson, producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) comments, “You don’t hear voices like that everyday. The first time I saw him was at the Bluebird in Nashville—he started to sing and shut the place down. And he had the charm and wit to completely hold the audience in the palm of his hand. When I got the chance to have my imprint LCS, he was the first person I wanted to sign. When he sings you can hear the soil and landscape of great southern soul in his voice and he’s an amazing writer as well.”

The festival is currently accepting films in five categories: Feature Length, Animated, Shorts, Foreign and the “locals only” classification of Spud and Guts. Spud and Guts is a no-fee contest designed to promote our native filmmakers. The Idaho Horror Film Festival is the launch pad for Idaho filmmakers.

ABOUT JOSH RITTER AND ‘SERMON ON THE ROCKS’

JR_Sermon_Album_Cover_itunes“…I wanted to make something grand. I wanted it to swing hard. I wanted to peek through death’s keyhole. I wanted my monster to run …” – Josh Ritter

Sermon on the Rocks, the new album from critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Josh Ritter, will be released October 16 on Pytheas Recordings/Thirty Tigers. In advance of the release, the first single, “Getting Ready To Get Down,” premiered last month at NPR Music.

Produced by Ritter and Trina Shoemaker (Queens of the Stone Age, Emmylou Harris), the 12-song album was recorded over two weeks at New Orleans’ The Parlor Recording Studio and features Matt Barrick from The Walkmen on drums, Zachariah Hickman on bass, Josh Kaufman on guitar and Sam Kassirer on piano.

Of his inspiration behind Sermon on the Rocks, Ritter comments, “I wanted to play messianic oracular honky-tonk.”

Over the course of his acclaimed career, Ritter has released seven full-length albums, including his most recent, 2013’s The Beast In Its Tracks, which debuted at #22 on the Billboard 200 and #8 on the Top Rock Albums chart. The record also received widespread critical praise—NPR Music called it “…gorgeous and glorious,” while Pitchfork asserted, “Beast is contemplative and forgiving, a means of burying one relationship to commit to another, and Ritter nicely evokes the excitement and resignation of such a transition.” Additionally, in 2011, Ritter made is debut as a published author with his New York Times best-selling novel, Bright’s Passage (Dial Press/Random House). Of the work, Stephen King writes in The New York Times Book Review, “Shines with a compressed lyricism that recalls Ray Bradbury in his prime…This is the work of a gifted novelist.”

FIRST THURSDAY, OCT. 1: LED MUSIC/DANCE PERFORMANCE

_Q2A8868retBridgeJoin us on First Thursday, Oct. 1, for a special music/dance performance by LED at 6 p.m. As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages.
