Willie Nile is currently in the midst of a creative renaissance that’s produced some of the most compelling music of his 35-year career. The tradition continues with his CD American Ride.The CD is being released on Loud and Proud Records, where Nile becomes the first artist released under the label’s new deal with RED Distribution.“It’s pretty rockin’ over all, but there are some left turns and right turns along the way,” Nile says of the album, which was fan-funded through Pledgemusic.com. “There are songs about the rights of man, songs about freedom, songs about love and hate, songs about loss, songs about God and the absence of God, and songs about standing up for your fellow man. It’s upbeat and full of life. I’m thrilled with how it came out.”American Ride offers a bracing set of 11 original compositions, and one well-chosen cover, that rank with the catchiest and most vivid music that Nile’s ever delivered. From the everyday wisdom of “Life on Bleecker Street” and “Sunrise in New York City” to the broader observations of “This Is Our Time” and “Holy War” to the rock ’n’ roll abandon of “Say Hey” and the road-tripping title track. Several of American Ride’s recurring themes come into focus on the last two songs, “The Crossing” and “There’s No Place Like Home,” which end the album on a note of humanistic uplift. Another highlight is a fiery reading of Jim Carroll’s “People Who Died,” recorded as a tribute to both Carroll, who passed away in 2009, and to Nile’s late brother John. American Ride features backup from Nile’s live band guitarist Matt Hogan, bassist Johnny Pisano, drummer Alex Alexander, and Nile on guitar & piano guest appearances by Eagles’ guitarist Steuart and New York singer-songwriters James Maddock & Leslie Mendelson.

Enid Shomer won the Iowa Short Fiction Award for her first collection of stories, "Imaginary Men", and the Florida Book Awards Gold Medal for her second, "Tourist Season". She is also the author of four books of poetry.
Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The Paris Review, and many other publications. "The Twelve Rooms of the Nile" (Simon & Schuster, 2012), is her first novel.
Ms. Shomer's work has been collected in more than fifty anthologies and textbooks, including "POETRY: A Harper Collins Pocket Anthology", "Best American Poetry", and "New Stories from the South: The Year’s Best".
"The Twelve Rooms of the Nile" is a fascinating account of the fictional (and intellectually and emotionally intense) meeting in Egypt of a young Florence Nightingale and the French writer Gustave Flaubert.
Shomer conducted extensive research about the concurrent Egyptian travels of Nightingale and Flaubert, and she has great insight into the early years of Nightingale's life.
This will be an edifying and exciting interview in which the myth and story of Florence Nightingale will play a central role.
In 2013, Shomer received the Lifetime Achievement Award in Writing from the Florida Humanities Council.
The author lives in Tampa, Florida.

In the Inland Empire, West Nile Virus has been detected in numerous locations. The disease is spread by mosquitos, and is most dangerous for the young and the elderly.
What an amazing summer this has been for Nile Rodgers, master of the grittiest, bad-ass funk guitar on the airwaves ever since the Disco era. Nile has survived decades of toiling as a studio musician and producer in the shadow of superstars like Madonna, David Bowie, Duran Duran and Big Bird (yes, Nile played on Sesame Street), as well as the hard-driving leader of Chic, and finally is enjoying his moment in the limelight. Today club dance music is back stronger than ever, and Nile has an international hit with "Get Lucky", his collaboration with Daft Punk.
After being diagnosed with a life-threatening cancer diagnosis, Nile threw himself into work with the energy of ten mortals, writing his best-selling memoir "Le Freak: An Upside Down Story of Family, Disco, and Destiny", embracing new technology with his blog and Twitter account, and reaching out to work with artists like Adam Lambert and Sam Sparro ("Shady"), Daft Punk and current EDM phenom Avicii ("Lay Me Down", with Adam Lambert). What's not to love about this man? His openness, resilience and sheer joy in making and sharing music are winning a new generation of fans.
