The Legendary Soul Man SAM MOORE, voted one of the 100 top pop voices of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine, joins bluegrass group Nu-Blu as a special guest on their upcoming single release "Jesus and Jones" - a song that pays tribute to the late George Jones.
Moore, who had been invited personally by George before he passed away, performed at what became Jones' tribute show Playin' Possum: The Final No Show in November of 2013. Sam took no time to agree to participate in recording this song. "I've been a fan of George's music for a long, long time and was fortunate enough that we called each other friends," says Moore. "This song honors him and says what we all have felt about him."
"We absolutely love this song and its message," says Nu-Blu's Carolyn Routh. "We played the demo for George's widow Nancy Jones and she loved it. With her encouragement we recorded it and just knew we wanted to add a guest vocalist to the recording. Then we thought back to the November tribute show and remembered it was Sam Moore who had just brought the house down. You could see the love he had for George."
Over the years, Sam has crossed over from soul, the genre his hit song "Soul Man" named, to rhythm & blues, jazz, big band, pop, and country. He was nominated for an ACM, and two CMAs for his collaboration with Conway Twitty on "Rainy Night In Georgia" on the Country, Rhythm & Blues album. Their video is considered a classic and one of the top country duets of all time.
Whitby, Ontario-based singer/songwriter BARBARA LYNN DORAN's new CD Love From All Sides finds her displaying even more depth as a vocalist and lyricist. “I’m heavily involved with the Nashville Songwriter’s Association so I’ve learned a lot through that. When I started writing, it was about what I was feeling at that time. I’d write and whatever came out was the way it was. I’m more particular with my lyrics now,” she says, adding that the contributions of longtime producer/co-writer/engineer Murray Daigle have been invaluable in her continuing progress in writing her best songs.
Recently, Barbara has qualified as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, a finalist in the Great American Songwriting Competition and landed a spot on the Nashville Songwriter’s Association 2014 ‘Ones To Watch’ list. Additionally, as a coordinator with the Nashville Songwriter’s Association, she runs songwriter’s workshops for Canadian-based artists, and regularly travels to Music City to meet and perform with a vast number of other songwriters at local open mic nights.
“I’ve been down to Nashville six or seven times in the last two years and it’s been such an eye-opening experience,” Barbara explains. “Sometimes when I’m there the ideas come so fast I have to step back and say, ‘I can’t possibly write all these songs.’ Still, I’ll often come back with two or three of my own songs. So the trips to Nashville really help me focus.”
Tune in for a conversation with this talented Canadian Country artist and hear a couple of the songs from her album.
TANYA MARIE HARRIS admits to being somewhat of a late bloomer as far as Country music goes. “Growing up, we listened to a lot of rock more than anything. My mom never listened to Country – unless it was Patsy Cline,” she recalled of her formative years in Ontario. However, a trip into the southern United States changed all of that. “A little later on, I went on a trip to South Carolina, and they had so many Country radio stations around, so I got my first taste of it then. I went home and started listening to it, and watching CMT. I fell in love with the fact that I could understand it. Country is straight-forward, taking a page out of someone’s life and putting it to song. It was always a story that was relatable and understandable.” Tanya is currently working on a seven song EP with several of the songs already available at iTunes including the current single - now released to US radio - called Second Hand Dreams.
WILDFLOWER brings a unique blend of folk-roots & rock to their own brand of Country music. As with most musical journeys, Wildflower started with a song. Singer–songwriters Jennie Clarke (vocals) and Dean Selby (vocals, guitar) first met in a Calgary recording studio in 2012, and an instant chemistry and creative connection emerged. It wasn’t long before the two began writing & performing together. Recently honoured with a nomination for 2013 Group/Duo of the Year by the Association of Country Music in Alberta, and Top 10 Regional finalists in the prestigious CBC Searchlight competition in 2014, Wildflower is ready to make their mark on the Canadian Country music scene. Their first full-length album will be released in August 2014. Entitled Long Road, the album name is fitting considering the journey these two have taken to get to this point in their musical careers.
