His work as founder and frontman of the long running funk/roots band, Juice, landed the band a Best of the Beat award for Best Emerging Funk/Soul/R&B Band and nominations for Best Roots Rock Band and Best Roots Rock Album for 2000s Anders Osborne produced, All Lit Up. His song “Biggest Little Shrimp In Town” the title track of an award winning short film- was re-recorded by Art Neville and the Beverly Hills Short Film Festival created an award for Best Song to recognize their collaboration. His most recent work as a solo artist, has quickly become one of the most talked about roots rock acts in New Orleans including his most recent release “No Losers Tonight.”

The NIA is psyched to announce the new album, No Losers Tonight, 10 new tracks recorded in New Orleans and produced by Jeff Watkins (New Orleans Suspects).

Some early reviews are in and it’s receiving high praise, as well as furthering their reputation as a force of nature live act.

“…unshakable confidence that is musically refreshing.” – Live For Live Music

“Jordan is a dynamic songwriter, crafting tunes that run the gamut from uptempo rockers to mid tempo soul groovers and wistful ballads.

The songs really breathe on this recording, but the best way to hear them is live on stage when the band stretches out and feeds off their ever-increasing fan base.” – Vinyl District

“This album also shows a band that is not afraid to jam in the studio. Epic tracks such as “Pontchartrain” and “Boot To Your Neck” cross the five-minute mark, while keeping the listener’s attention with memorable lyrics and beautiful instrumentation.” – Lagnaippe Mobile (AL)

Dyrty Byrds spring tour 2016


Rocky Mountain Artists is very pleased to announce a spring 2016 tour for the
DYRTY BYRDS out of Denver, CO

Fresh off the release of their outstanding new album “Failure Is Feedback” the Dyrty Byrds will be taking their Rocky Mountain Rock and Roll to the southeast including dates in Texas and several other dates to the Atlantic coast.

You can check out the band at the following dates:

3/31 (Thu) – Sundown at Granada – Dallas, TX
4/1 (Fri) – Botticelli’s – Austin, TX
4/2 (Sat) – The Pigpen – San Antonio, TX
4/3 (Sun) – Bramble Crawfish Boil – Houston, TX
4/4 (Mon) – Blue Canoe – Tupelo, MS
4/5 (Tue) – The Nick, Birmingham, AL
4/6 (Wed) – Nowhere Bar – Athens, GA
4/7 (Thu) – Tiki Hut – Hilton Head, SC
4/8 (Fri) – Home Team BBQ – Charleston, SC
4/9 (Sat) – Clyde’s On Main – Chattanooga, TN



Leaving a trail of burned up bars and sweat soaked guitars since 2009, the Dyrty Byrds have shown no mercy in their pursuit of original guitar driven rock and roll. Tori Pater, Eric Martinez, Mike “Spanky” McCluer, and Andrew Clapp are a four-piece rock band from Denver, CO that would fit as easily into the 1970’s classic/southern rock scene as they do in modern day American music.

Playing on their love of songwriting and rock & roll, Tori Pater (Polytoxic) and Eric Martinez (Bloodkin) have been playing music together since 2004 and have eased into a prolific songwriting partnership which is deeply solidified on the new Dyrty Byrds release Failure is Feedback, due out Feb. 2016. The vast majority of the new songs were born and flushed out in Tori’s basement with just he and Eric and a couple of acoustic guitars.

Seeing a few different formations after their 2009 debut, Dyrty Byrds have worn the tried and true rock & roll recipe of two guitars, bass, and drums as a badge of honor for the better part of their existence. Mike “Spanky” McCluer (Larry) and Andrew Clapp (Forever In Blue Jeans) on Bass and drums (respectively) bring a “freight train through the Rockies” type sound to the band that only Spanky and Andy can produce.

Failure Is Feedback is the Dyrty Byrds’ third release and second album done with Chad “Chadzilla” Johnson at Silent Scream Studios in Denver, CO. Failure touches on outlaw country, a little punk rock, and funk with steady doses of rock & roll through out the record. It takes you to a place where guitars rule, truth is paramount, and the bar is always open.

It’s a boot stomp on a dusty bar floor. It’s the clang of a whiskey bottle at last call. It’s grit. It’s the sounds of the South. It’s Cranford Hollow, a blended mix of Southern Rock, Appalachian Fiddle Music and American Rock and Roll.

The Hilton Head Island quartet, comprised of vocalist and guitarist John Cranford, bass man Phillip Sirmans, drummer Randy Rockalotta, and fiddler and vocalist Eric Reid, have won over thousands of loyal fans with what they call Lowcountry Stomp, a sound that is at once eclectic but uniquely their own. Elements of Blues, Old-Time Country, and Southern Psychedelic Rock come together with ancient mountain melodies in an energetic, engaging musical root bag sprinkled with some Sea Island hoodoo. Since 2011 Cranford Hollow has been playing upwards of 200 shows a year, steadily expanding from the South Carolina Lowcountry to places as far afield as Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Livingston, Montana and Taos, New Mexico.

St. Telluride, Cranford Hollow’s fourth studio album, was released on August 18, 2015 and features ten new original tracks. The album was recorded over the first five months of 2015 on the Hastings Mesa just outside of Telluride, Colorado, and at Retrophonics Studios in St. Augustine Florida. St. Telluride was engineered by John Cranford, Preston Havill, and veteran producer Jim Devito and includes two songs featuring Telluride songstress Ellowyn Kane. Cranford Hollow is touring the South and Midwest this autumn promoting St. Telluride.

Karikatura makes life-affirming, body-shaking music that moves people around the world. While the band has toured everywhere from Japan to Brazil, New York City is home. With bright horns, socially conscious lyrics and booty-bouncing beats, Karikatura delivers real songs that transcend style and genre. An organic synthesis of all the music heard blasting out of car windows and shops onto the streets of NYC, Karikatura lives where cumbia meets hip-hop, reggae meets klezmer and indie-rock meets afrobeat. Neither purist nor revivalist, this is music of the present, for the future. In 2004 the band released its debut full-length album, Eyes Wide, on Ropeadope Records, following up two EPs and DIY tours of Europe, Asia and South America. Wherever Karikatura goes, they move people with honest songs, strong rhythms and creative horns. Karikatura brings the world to New York and New York to the world, capturing the present moment, with eyes and ears wide open. At the same time, the band faces the future, with bags packed for the next adventure.

Gravy has successfully “created their own very original sound with their latest album Get Busy Living – a bit of neo soul mixed with some indie rock smothered in a whole bunch of New Orleans funk” according to producer of Gravy’s latest album and founding member of Galactic, Robert Mercurio. Inspired by a cultural renaissance and new found clarity of vision; Gravy preaches the gospel of New Orleans funk while maintaining a creative voice steeped in the time–‐honored traditions of The Crescent City. Quickly making a name for themselves by paying homage to influences as varied and vast as the city they call home, the four members of Gravy came together as a band of experienced and working musicians hailing from different parts of the country with an unquenchable thirst to make it in the Big Easy.

The ability to express a mastery of style across–‐the–‐board is quite possibly the most alluring quality of Gravy. They took their unique blend of influences and artfully crafted an infectious style capable of blending genres and (in a word) “redefining” what is possible for the band, according to co–‐ producer and fellow Galactic member, Ben Ellman. On the heels of their most formative album to date, Gravy takes the helm on Get Busy Living and navigates within their respective terrain in innovative and exciting ways that make a bold statement about the future of this band. This latest album, now road tested with an added element of spontaneity encouraged by the live setting, has become an artistic achievement that serves as a testament to their hard–‐work, dedication, and unwavering devotion to their craft. Gravy has elevated their creative vision above the contemporary quagmire and gained a musical perspective that is inspired by ingenuity and fueled by a passionate presentation of their eclectic influences. Excited to pursue a fresh set of tour dates and festival spots, Gravy is on a mission to bring their message to music fans hungry for something that challenges, inspires, and satisfies the soul.Gravy winter 2016 tour

Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal’s combination of soul, funk and R&B is in a word, electric. Best displayed in their high-energy live show, the blend of Hoyer’s honest lyrics and his soulful (sometimes in-your-face) vocals merge with his top-notch band to create an undeniable chemistry.

The magic of their live show caught the attention of producer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo), who joined with the band to record their third full-length album. Their most ambitious project to date, Running From Love was recorded at Nashville’s historic Sound Emporium, and once again features Hoyer’s trademark vocals and the band’s signature groove. The album is set for release on April 8, 2016, on Silver Street Records, and will be released on vinyl, CD and digital formats.

“If James Brown and Otis Redding had a love child, it would be Josh Hoyer. The Lincoln, Nebraska, soul shouter, and his band of merry soulsters, Soul Colossal, deliver a sound so big, so funky, so wring-the-sweat-out-of-you energetic that it reaches through the speakers and shakes you until you start moving to its groove.” – No Depression

The hard working band completed several national tours in 2015, playing more than 150 shows in 32 states, including opening for R&B legends George Clinton/Funkadelic and Booker T Jones. During small breaks from relentless touring, Josh Hoyer and Soul Colossal also recorded two albums last year – Running From Love, and a live album, Cooked Raw, that was released in November on limited edition vinyl.

Hoyer formed Josh Hoyer and Soul Colossal in 2012 in famed blues town Lincoln, Nebraska. The award-winning six-piece band includes some of the area’s most revered and accomplished musicians. Inspired by Stax, Motown, New Orleans, Philly and San Francisco, the band continuously crosses musical boundaries both in style and era, and joins forces each show with a common goal – to have the crowd dancing so much they forget even their smallest troubles.

The band will support the release of the new album with a tour through the Midwest and Southern markets, including Omaha, Denver, Milwaukee, Madison, Minneapolis, Chicago, St Louis, Indianapolis, and Nashville, among others.

John Wesley Satterfield writes and performs his own brand of American music, blending elements of rock’n’roll, country, bluegrass, and folk, to create a unique sound that is reminiscent of his early influences. When John Wesley was just 12 years old, his father began teaching him how to play guitar and sing songs by legends such as Harry Chapin, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and Jim Croce. While he may constantly seek new inspiration, there’s always a hint of these amazing storytellers in his music. Satterfield tours relentlessly to present his music to audiences large and small across the country. In the summer of 2012, he released his fourth album Goodbye Whiskey, an autobiographical batch of tunes produced by Mike Gossip of the the country group, Gloriana. He is now working on his fifth studio release with longtime friend and fellow South Carolina native, Ryan Monroe, of the rock’n’roll outfit, Band of Horses. Stay tuned for more from this up and coming artist.

Have you ever had the feeling that music just isn’t what it used to be? Tired of the standard run of the mill bands? Have you ever felt like your life is lacking in luster, and needs a good, swift kick in the rear to reveal a new, yet familiar flavor of unique musical perspective, sound and energy? Well then, look no further… Discover, Jack and the Bear.

Jack and the Bear is a folk/roots act from lower east Michigan with vaudevillian tendencies (see the live show.) Conjoured up of three siblings and close friends, the group’s sound can be related to that of Tom Waits, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Felice Brothers, C.W. Stoneking, Bruce Springsteen, Randy Newman, and Disney Soundtracks.

Throughout their time as a self-managed (DIY) band, “Jack” have performed at noteworthy music festivals (Bristol Rhythm and Roots, The Frendly Gathering, Nashville PAW Fest…etc), recorded with Grammy award winning artists, engineers and producers (Oz fritz, Doug Sax, Mooka Rennick, Sam Bardfeld), had multiple works placed and aired on hit Viacom network programs such as MTV’s Catfish & Teen Mom, formed their own recording studio niche in their hometown of Monroe, MI and have enjoyed the past few years touring extensively across the U.S. anywhere they can to spread the word of “Jack” referring to themselves as “The greatest thing you’ll ever see, probably.”

Gravy is the culmination of four distinct views of musical appreciation, quickly climbing the ranks of the New Orleans music scene, providing a mix of styles and genres that satisfy the most sophisticated palette and has cemented the band’s place in New Orleans music scene.

You may have caught them on WWOZ, playing the French Quarter Festival and Wednesday At The Square, at late night shows during New Orleans Jazz Fest, or rocking out at any number of local clubs and bars, such as Tipitina’s, The Blue Nile, and The Maple Leaf.

Gravy is fresh out of the studio, having just recorded their sophomore album, “The Hard Way”. It features guest appearances from some of New Orleans’ finest musicians like Johnny Vidacovich and CR Gruver, and has further established Gravy as a staying force in the New Orleans scene.

Gravy’s debut album, “Said & Done”, was recorded at New Orleans’ own Piety Street Studios, and saw the band collaborate with such icons as producer Mark Bingham, saxophonist Ben Ellman of Galactic, and Corey Henry of The Rebirth Brass Band and Galactic on trombone. Along with praising reviews from local magazines, Said & Done has become a local favorite, seeing extended air play on radio station WWOZ, which is widely known for it’s loyalty to maintaining a rich musical scene in New Orleans.

Along with “The Hard Way” and “Said & Done”, Gravy can be found on the Southern Comfort “Start The Music Up” Compilation CD, a tribute to New Orleans Musicians, alongside artists such as Galactic, Cowboy Mouth, Professor Longhair, Jon Cleary, Theresa Andersson, The Rebirth Brass Band, and Johnny Sketch & The Dirty Notes.

Gravy has also been featured in Relix Magazine, in the regular “Listen Up” section.
