<![CDATA[T. Hardy Morris Featured on Paste Magazine]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/t-hardy-morris-featured-on-paste-magazine T. Hardy Morris is featured in a fantastic article published today on Paste Magazine. The feature explores Hardy’s process on writing and recording this new album, his grunge and southern influences, and includes flattering quotes from a few of Hardy’s peers and fellow songwriters.

“What I like most about Hardy’s songwriting is his uncanny ability to simultaneously channel Neil Young, Merle Haggard and Jagger/Richards, yet it’s always subtle and never overt.” – Steve Berlin (Diamond Rugs/Los Lobos)

“I don’t know anything about Hardy’s actual writing process but he makes it sound as if it just flows out of him very naturally. It never sounds labored or forced. There’s an almost conversational aspect to his lyrics that I love, and they sound very unified with his excellent sense of melody and his gorgeous voice. Plus he’s a great live performer with a smoking band.” – Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers)

Preorder his upcoming album Drownin On A Mountaintop (out June 23rd) on iTunes or Bandcamp for only $8.99, or get the album on limited edition white vinyl or CD from the Dangerbird Records webstore.

<![CDATA[T. Hardy Morris announces new album <i>Hardy & The Hardknocks: Drownin On A Mountaintop</i> Coming June 23rd]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/t-hardy-morris-announces-new-album-ihardy--the-har

T. Hardy Morris is proud to announce the upcoming release of his new album Hardy & The Hardknocks: Drownin On A Mountain Top, out June 23rd via Dangerbird Records. The Athens, GA based songwriter, who also also lends his talent to Diamond Rugs and Dead Confederate, has spent the past year writing and recording the new album, the follow up to his critically acclaimed 2013 solo debut Audition Tapes. Vinyl fans can also get their hands on a recording of “Too Little, Too Late”, featured on the upcoming Record Store Day split 7” with Futurebirds, out April 18th.

“If Audition Tapes was a high and lonesome mellow-roast with musical touchstones like Harvest era Neil and driving down a windy backroad alone,” writes Patterson Hood of Drive By Truckers, “Drownin On A Mountaintop blasts out of the garage like some high-octane muscle car full of friends, blasting Mott The Hoople on the way to the last-call dive bar.”

You can hear that shift in gears in the single “Painted On Attitude”, A strangely complimentary mix of rollicking lo-fi southern rock pedal steel twang, run through a grunge punk buzzsaw with Morris’ snarling yet tuneful vocals serving as the sharp end of the blade. The album as a whole is a melding of these competing forces, as Hardy toes the line between his southern rock heritage and his coming of age during the heyday of alt-rock’s slacker generation. The result is a record that would be just as much at home in a Macon, GA dive bar as it would a parents-out-of-town ’90s house party in Olympia, WA.

“Like a lot of people, me and my friends growing up did a lot of crazy stuff and somehow learned how to play rock and roll in the process,” says Morris. “There was an old trailer behind my friends house and we ran an extension cord out to it and slowly bought pawn shop guitars and amps and got our hands on stuff people didn’t want anymore. We had drums and we built a guitar amp out of an old bass head and 2 car speakers. The speakers blew out immediately and it had this crazy fuzz tone. We called it The Fogerty cause it sounded like CCR.”

The rebel spirit bursting through the speakers on this album is as much about drawing from a youthful past as it is driven by the future. A lot has changed in Morris’ life since the release of Audition Tapes in 2013, which at the time was lauded by Stereogum for its “calming beauty,” and praised by Paste for its “wildly passionate” songwriting. Of all recent life events however, none is likely more significant than the birth of his daughter. Much of …Drownin On A Mountain Top was written and recorded in the run up to her birth, adding an element of urgency that pulses throughout the record.

“I wanted this record to be a kind of end-of-an-era for me,” Morris relates. “It was a very deliberate thing to record these songs before the birth of my first child. I was in a headspace and I wanted to capture it before I became a dear old dad”

On a less psychoanalytical level, …Drownin On A Mountain Top‘s ultimate sound also stems from Morris’ preoccupation with two of his former songs in particular. “Share The Needle”, from Audition Tapes, and “Country Mile”, a song he’d contributed to Diamond Rugs’ self-titled debut. Each of those tracks featured a distinct push-and-pull dynamic that ended up bridging the gap between the quieter country leanings of Audition Tapes, and the more aggressive grunge of Morris’ other band Dead Confederate.

“There is something about that push / pull that really works for my songwriting and feels right to me,” says Morris of the new direction. “People are like, ‘that’s a crazy song’, but I didn’t think of it that way. I decided to really embrace it on this record and I love the result. It’s my writing, but the playing is what makes it truly work. I knew I wanted Nick Sterchi (from Dead Confederate) to play drums on this one because he plays exactly how me and my friends tried to play when we were kids: heavy and loud. Vaughan Lamb has a really unique and noodle-y kind of hippy-punk bass style that I love.

And it goes without saying that the album couldn’t even exist without the pedal steel. Pistol (Matt Stoessel) is an incredible player and we both grew up with an affinity for a lot of the same southern rock. He knows just where to play in the songs and really bring them to life.”

…Drownin On A Mountain Top was recorded at Chase Park studios in Athens with Adam Landry & Justin Collins (Cosmic Thug Production). “We had done some demos and a lot of talking before we recorded,” Morris recounts. “We knew what we were going for and we got it. Landry & Collins helped me dial in the dynamic on a lot of the songs. They can come off the rails if the right thing doesn’t happen at the right time. It was a lot of fun to make.”

T. Hardy Morris and his band (The Hardknocks) will hit the road this spring and summer as they tour in support of Hardy & The Hardknocks: Drownin On A Mountain Top. Keep posted for further album information and singles to be released in the coming weeks.

<![CDATA[Holly Miranda signs with Dangerbird Records // Sophomore Album Coming May 19th]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/holly-miranda-signs-with-dangerbird-records Dangerbird is proud to announce the signing of Holly Miranda and the release of her upcoming sophomore album on May 19th.

“Holly is one of those true, real artists who is infectious to be around,” says Dangerbird founder Peter Walker. “Her passion is so deep it comes through in every note she sings.”

“It’s been a long time coming and I’m so beyond thrilled to be releasing my new record with Dangerbird!” says Miranda. “I love Danger and I love Birds, so I think this is going to be a perfect fit.”

See Holly Miranda on tour with Andrea Gibson in March. Follow her on Twitter and on Facebook, and read below for more information on her upcoming album.

On a trip intended to jumpstart the creative process for new material, Holly Miranda reflects, “I had a dream that I was going to rent a house in Joshua Tree and go write by myself for a month. I’d never been there before, but I woke up the next day and booked the first house I found and left a few days later. It was about getting away from the chatter of Los Angeles and reconnecting with myself and nature. I had a bit of writer’s block after the last record, I wasn’t having fun anymore and I really needed to get back the core of why I started making music 17 years ago.” she says.

Whatever it was Miranda needed from her time in desert, she seems to have found it. On her self-titled sophomore release Miranda nods at her singer-songwriter roots but also pushes herself in new directions. She co-produced the album with Florent Barbier, and tracks like “Desert Call” and “Everlasting,” show off straightforward songwriting, soulful delivery and a lighters-in-the-air orchestration that places Miranda alongside the pantheon of songwriters who can make heartache sound beautiful. After half of her life spent on stage or in a recording studio—with her former rock band The Jealous Girlfriends and more recently as a solo artist— Miranda is still experimenting and diving for deeper truths.

“This is the most honest thing I’ve ever made; it’s very raw and is a contrast to what I’ve done in the past,” she says. After writing in Joshua Tree, she headed to Brooklyn, New York in the winter of 2012 to record most of the album, enlisting the help of bandmates Timmy Mislock, Maria Eisen and David Jack Daniels, while taking turns herself on piano, drums, guitar and bass. “There’s a Motown vibe to some of the songs” she notes of the recordings. “I wanted it to feel like the band was playing the songs live. There’s also a few that are more electronic and ethereal,” like the song “Come On.” She recorded that track in Los Angeles with David Andrew Sitek, producer of her 2010 release The Magicians Private Library.

Outside of recording, Miranda’s kept plenty busy. She recently toured the globe playing guitar for Karen O in support of her solo debut Crush Songs, she toured Spain for the annual Voces Femininas festival and is currently working on a graphic novel with Portland based artist Catherine Lazar Odell.

“I can’t remember a time I wasn’t singing. When I was little my older sisters used to make me lay on the floorboard of the car if I was going to sing, because my voice was so loud they said it felt like it was ‘inside of their heads.’ I’ll never stop making music. It’s the best therapy I’ve found.”

Listening to her new record, one certainly hopes she never stops.

<![CDATA[Grammy Award-Winning Jesse Harris to release <i>No Wrong No Right</i> on February 10th 2015]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/jesse-harris-no-wrong-no-right-coming-february-10

Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Jesse Harris will release his upcoming album No Wrong No Right on February 10th 2015 on Los Angeles-based indie label Dangerbird Records.

Harris had his breakthrough in 2003, having written Norah Jones’ first and biggest hit “Don’t Know Why.” He subsequently has had a vibrant solo career of his own, along the way writing for and collaborating with renowned artists such as Bright Eyes, Cat Power, Feist, M. Ward, Mike Patton, John Zorn, Solomon Burke, Willie Nelson, Melody Gardot, and Emmylou Harris.

Visit Paste Magazine for the exclusive premiere of the title track “No Wrong No Right.”

On No Wrong No Right – Harris’ 13th album—he drew inspiration from Neil Young’s approach to After the Goldrush. “Some of that record was done with Crazy Horse, and it’s a rock record,” Harris explains, “but then you also have these hushed acoustic folk songs, and it keeps shifting back and forth between these two distinct moods. I always loved the way that worked, so I started there, but with No Wrong No Right, I also added a third element.”

The three elements Harris speaks of here are a set of full-band tunes recorded with guitarist Will Graefe and drummer Jeremy Gustin of experimental duo Star Rover; a more subdued, acoustic-anchored series of duets with guitar virtuoso Julian Lage; and a trio of evocative instrumental tracks.

The album initially grew out of Harris’ discovery of Star Rover and the friendship and musical chemistry that developed between them last winter. “I fell in love with their band,” Harris says. “I was sort of a groupie, checking out their gigs all the time. One day they invited me over to their loft to play, and it felt great from the first song. Which inspired me to write a bunch more songs.

“Will and Jeremy, musically, are adventurous and free, and at the same time completely supportive of the song. They love to work out arrangements, but they play with a lot of looseness and expression. It’s so hard to find that perfect combination—either people don’t want to rehearse, and just play all over the songs, or they’re too rehearsed and there’s no spontaneity. As a singer and songwriter, I feel like they support the music, but at the same time completely challenge it.”

The duos with Lage – “I Probably Won’t See You For A While,” “Don’t Let Me Pass By” and John Zorn co-write “Kafiristan” – are sparse and disarmingly intimate, offering a refreshing contrast to the record’s more fleshed-out tracks. Harris raves about the musical abilities of Lage, who also plays in duos with Wilco’s Nels Cline and Chris Eldridge of The Punch Brothers. “Julian is a remarkable young musician,” Harris says. He’s a jazz guitarist, but he’s equally interested in songcraft and experimental music. Playing with him is always exciting – he’s extremely sensitive, and has such a beautiful tone. I really wanted to capture our duo on this record.”

The album’s three instrumentals—also backed by Star Rover – continue Harris’ tradition of including a few sans-vocals tracks on every release. The aptly named “Staring Contest” features a loping, repetitive and extremely hummable guitar figure. “Pandora’s Box” is a dreamy meditation on the modern rabbit hole of social media, and “Miyazaki” is a tribute to the legendary Japanese anime director.

No Wrong No Right also features a mysterious and gorgeously wintery rendition of Rodgers & Hart standard “Where or When” bolstered by the organ playing of Larry Goldings (James Taylor). Other notable guests on the record include CJ Camerieri (Bon Iver, Paul Simon, yMusic) on horns and horn arrangements, frequent Harris collaborator Margaret Glaspy on vocals, Mauro Refosco (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Atoms for Peace) on percussion, marimba and electronics, and Sofia Rei – who also performs with Harris in the John Zorn-led Song Project—on vocals.

<![CDATA[New T. Hardy Morris Song "Painted On Attitude" Premiering at Consequence of Sound + Tour with Jessica Lea Mayfield]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/t-hardy-morris-painted-on-attitude-consequence-of- T. Hardy Morris will close out 2014 with a string of tour dates, including a run with fellow traveller Jessica Lea Mayfield this November, and a special appearance with Deer Tick to ring in the New Year on Dec 31 at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY.

Morris is also releasing a new single, Painted on Attitude, giving fans a taste of the fierce rock band hitting the road and a sneak peek at what is to come sonically from the Athens, GA based musician as he completes work on his sophomore solo album, due in 2015 from Dangerbird Records.

Listen to “Painted On Attitude” at Consequence of Sound and purchase the song & bonus track “Without Fail” direct from Dangerbird Records.

A strangely complimentary mix of rollicking lo-fi southern rock pedal steel twang run through a grunge punk buzzsaw, “Painted On Attitude” showcases Morris’ snarling yet tuneful vocals on the sharp end of the blade. The single is a wry commentary on the lengths to which some go to “do something, oh so unique” by moving to big cities, only to “blend-in and pretend to be busy” while predictably getting swept up in whatever inescapable trend is currently affecting Brooklyn or Portland.

Morris’ sound is a departure as well as a continuation of the blissfully languid approach taken on much of his debut. Morris’ unique sonic lean is a product of his youthful affinity for “good” 90s rock, slamming head-first into his coveted Neil Young records and love of 70s Outlaw Country.

When Morris sat down to write for this new release, he drew upon two former songs in particular. “Share The Needle”, from Audition Tapes, and “Country Mile”, a song he’d contributed to Diamond Rugs’ self-titled debut. Each of those tracks featured a distinct push-and-pull dynamic that ended up bridging the gap between the quieter country leanings of Audition Tapes, and the more aggressive grunge of Morris’ other band Dead Confederate.

To achieve the sound found on the new record, Hardy amassed a contingent of players comprised of the ever trusty Matt “Pistol” Stoessel on pedal steel, Vaughan Lamb on bass, and Dead Confederate drummer Nick Sterchi.
