Concert Gallery: Holly Williams at Joe’s Pub in NYC, NY

January 28, 2013 by  
Filed under Latest Photo Galleries

The last few years have been busy ones for Holly Williams. She has lent her talent to various musical projects including a Bob Dylan lead album of unfinished Hank Williams songs and more recently she recorded a cover of Paul McCartney’s  “My Love” for an album in tribute to Linda McCartney. She also opened a successful clothing store in Nashville  but something was missing. Her rambling spirit started to miss the road. So being the intrepid artist that she is she started her own label and recorded her latest record.  

Kicking off the tour in support of her third record The Highway (February 5th release date) Holly Williams played a sold out performance at Joe’s Pub in New York City. The crowd, rich with “industry folk” was treated to the material off of The Highway as well as a few from her last release Here with Me.
Williams will  perform on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on January 30th and from there she will embark on several months of touring including some tour dates with Sheryl Crow and then Jewel. For the complete list of tour dates and to order The Highway  visit her official website

Blue October’s Justin Furstenfeld Plots Solo Tour Run

January 24, 2013 by  
Filed under Daily Music News, Tour Dates & News

Blue October headlines the "Pick Up The Phone Tour" for sucide prevention at the House of Blues in Boston, Massachusetts on April 14, 2010.Justin Furstenfeld, vocalist/songwriter/guitarist for Blue October, will kick off a 24-date solo/acoustic tour “An Open Book: An Evening With Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October” on April 4 at Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, CA.

The shows, all presented in intimate settings, will consist of spoken word, a Q&A session, and an acoustic set of songs never before heard, as well as stripped down and softer versions of Blue October fan-favorites.

Justin on the tour: “I always look forward to the spoken word/solo shows,” said Furstenfeld. “The fact that I’m sitting just a few feet away from the audience, that there are no rules as to what they ask me, or that I don’t have boundaries on my answers, is what is exciting to me. I’m hoping that the evening will give everyone a chance to dig deep, connect, and explore the dark corners of why honesty, no matter how brutal, remains one of the most beautiful aspects of being human. Through poetry, music, and conversation, we heal. Why not do it together.”

“An Open Book: An Evening With Justin Furstenfeld” will support the release of “Crazy Making,” the expanded third edition of Furstenfeld’s book of lyrics, hand-written notes and personal photographs. The book, featuring more than 80 new pages, includes all lyrics from Blue October’s albums and EPs, from 1998’s The Answers through to 2011’s Any Man In America, as well as lyrics from a dozen unreleased songs. The new edition also includes some very personal insights into Furstenfeld’s creative thought process through the past few albums, not published in previous editions. “Crazy Making” will be available at all of the “Open Book” shows, as well as, for the first time, at and other online retail outlets on April 1.
