Pink Martini is a rollicking around-the-world musical adventure... if the United Nations had a house band in 1962, hopefully wed be that band. Thomas Lauderdale, bandleader/pianist In 1994 in his hometown of Portland, Oregon, Thomas Lauderdale was working in politics, thinking that one day he would run for mayor. Like other eager politicians-in-training, he went to every political fundraiser under the sun... but was dismayed to find the music at these events underwhelming, lackluster, loud and un-neighborly. Drawing inspiration from music from all over the world crossing genres of classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop and hoping to appeal to conservatives and liberals alike, he founded the little orchestra Pink Martini in 1994 to provide more beautiful and inclusive musical soundtracks for political fundraisers for causes such as civil rights, affordable housing, the environment, libraries, public broadcasting, education and parks. One year later, Lauderdale called China Forbes, a Harvard classmate who was living in New York City, and asked her to join Pink Martini. They began to write songs together. Their first song Sympathiquebecame an overnight sensation in France, was nominated for Song of the Year at Frances Victoires de la Musique Awards, and to this day remains a mantra (Je ne veux pas travailler or I dont want to work) for striking French workers. Says Lauderdale, Were very much an American band, but we spend a lot of time abroad and therefore have the incredible diplomatic opportunity to represent a broader, more inclusive America... the America which remains the most heterogeneously populated country in the world...composed of people of every country, every language, every religion.Featuring a dozen musicians, Pink Martini performs its multilingual repertoire on concert stages and with symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia, Greece, Turkey, the Middle East, Northern Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South America and North America. Pink Martini made its European debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997 and its orchestral debut with the Oregon Symphony in 1998 under the direction of Norman Leyden. Since then, the band has gone on to play with more than 50 orchestras around the world, including multiple engagements with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, the Boston Pops, the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center, the San Francisco Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra, and the BBC Concert Orchestra at Royal Albert Hall in London. Other appearances include the grand opening of the Los Angeles Philharmonics Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall, with return sold-out engagements for New Years Eve 2003, 2004, 2008 and 2011; four sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall; the opening party of the remodeled Museum of Modern Art in New York City; the Governors Ball at the 80th Annual Academy Awards in 2008; the opening of the 2008 Sydney Festival in Australia; multiple sold-out appearances, and a festival opening, at the Montreal Jazz Festival, two sold-out concerts at Paris legendary LOlympia Theatre in 2011; and Paris fashion house Lanvins 10-year anniversary celebration for designer Alber Elbaz in 2012. In its twentieth year, Pink Martini was inducted into both the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame and the Oregon Music Hall of Fame. Pink Martinis debut album Sympathique was released independently in 1997 on the bands own label Heinz Records (named after Lauderdales dog), and quickly became an international phenomenon, garnering the group nominations for Song of the Year and Best New Artist in Frances Victoires de la Musique Awards in 2000. Pink Martini released Hang On Little Tomato in 2004, Hey Eugene! in 2007 and Splendor In The Grass in 2009. In November 2010 the band released Joy To The Worlda festive, multi-denominational holiday album featuring songs from around the globe. Joy To The World received glowing reviews and was carried in Starbucks stores during the 2010 and 2011 holiday seasons. All five albums have gone gold in France, Canada, Greece and Turkey. In Fall 2011 the band released two albums A Retrospective, a collection of the bands most beloved songs spanning their 18-year career, which includes eight previously unreleased tracks, and 1969, an album of collaborations with legendary Japanese singer Saori Yuki. 1969 has been certified platinum in Japan, reaching #2 on the Japanese charts, with the Japan Times raving the love and respect Saori Yuki and Pink Martini have for the pop tradition shines through on every track.The release of 1969 marked the first time a Japanese artist hit the American Billboard charts since Kyu Sakamoto released Sukiyaki in 1963. Pink Martini albums have sold over 3 million copies worldwide. The band has collaborated and performed with numerous artists, including Jimmy Scott, Carol Channing, Jane Powell, Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, Henri Salvador, Chavela Vargas, New York performer Joey Arias, puppeteer Basil Twist, Georges Moustaki, Michael Feinstein, filmmaker Gus Van Sant, Courtney Taylor Taylor of The Dandy Warhols, clarinetist and conductor Norman Leyden, Japanese legend Hiroshi Wada, Italian actress and songwriter Alba Clemente, DJ Johnny Dynell and Chi Chi Valenti, Faith Prince, Mamie Van Doren, the original cast of Sesame Street, the Bonita Vista High School Marching Band of Chula Vista, California, the Portland Youth Philharmonic, and the Pacific Youth Choir of Portland, Oregon. Singer Storm Large began performing with Pink Martini in March 2011, when China Forbes took a leave of absence to undergo surgery on her vocal cords. Forbes made full recovery and now both she and Large continue performing with Pink Martini. Pink Martini has an illustrious roster of regular guest artists: NPRs All Things Considered host, Ari Shapiro, Cantor Ida Rae Cahana (who was cantor at the Central Synagogue in NYC for five years), koto player Masumi Timson, harpist Maureen Love, and Kim Hastreiter (the publisher/editor-in-chief of Papermagazine). In January 2012 bandleader Thomas Lauderdale began work on Pink Martinis seventh studio album when he recorded the Charlie Chaplin song Smile with the legendary Phyllis Diller. The album, titled Get Happy, was released on September 24, 2013 and features 16 globe-spanning songs in nine languages. The bands beloved vocalist China Forbes anchors the recording, and she is joined by her new co-lead singer Storm Large, recording with Pink Martini for the first time, along with a cavalcade of special guests including Rufus Wainwright, Philippe Katerine, Meow Meow, The von Trapps & Ari Shapiro. And while still in the studio for Get Happy, Lauderdale simultaneously began work on the band's eighth studio album, Dream a Little Dream, featuring Sofia, Melanie, Amanda and August von Trapp, the actual great-grandchildren of Captain and Maria von Trapp, made famous by the movie TheSound of Music. These siblings have been singing together for 12 years and have toured all over the world in concert. Drawn into the magical orbit of Thomas Lauderdale, they now live together in a house in Portland, Oregon and have been frequent guest performers with Pink Martini for the past two years. The album, released in March 2014, traverses the world, from Sweden to Rwanda to China to Bavaria, and features guest appearances by The Chieftains, Wayne Newton, "Jungle" Jack Hanna, and Charmian Carr (who played Liesl in the original Sound of Music).

Tomorrow Forever, Matthew Sweets fifth album of new material in this century, the first since 2011s Modern Art and 14th overall in a recording career spanning more than three decades, is teeming with his signature sounds and ongoing preoccupations. But the expansive 17-song workavailable June 16, 2017 in CD, double 180-gram-vinyl LP, CD and digital configurations via Sweets own newly launched Honeycomb Hideout imprint through Sonys RED Distributiontakes these familiar elements into previously unexplored territory, reflecting profound changes in his life. Essentially, Tomorrow Forever contemplates a knotty epistemological question: Does what is real extend beyond what the consciousness can readily grasp?In early 2014, Sweet, his wife Lisa and their cats moved from their longtime home in the Hollywood Hills to their native Nebraska. They bought a house on the outskirts of Omaha, 40 miles from Matthews hometown of Lincoln, where his elderly parents still lived. The 80-year-old house was spacious enough to accommodate Matthews high-end studioformerly Lolina Lane, now Black Squirrel Submarineand vast array of instruments, as well the Sweets collection of big-eyed art and Matthews pottery-making tools.Soon after relocating to Nebraska, Matthews team launched a Kickstarter fund in order to crowd-fund his next album, but before hed even gotten the project started, life happened. As he was getting acclimated to his old/new surroundings, his mother passed away, spending her difficult final days surrounded by her family. Never before had Matthew experienced the loss of someone near to him, and it stopped him in his tracks. But an extended period of grieving was followed by one of the most fruitful sustained bursts of inspiration in his prolific career.When I started cranking out stuff, I did as many as I needed for that time, Matthew recalls. Before Ric [Menck] showed up to play drums, I got 10 or 15 ideas going, and then we played those. I eventually recorded 38 songs, and all of them are as pro as the ones on the record. There are things that for one reason or another didnt make it, but a lot of them go beyond what I wound up using. So in a way I was trying to bottle the essence of something that was even more sprawling and full of moodiness. The record is actually pretty simple compared to what went through my head while I was making it.With Matthew, the creative process is never calculated; ideas fly into his headspace, he grabs them as they come and takes a ride, not knowing the destination. In this flurry, they multiplied like Star Trek tribbles, eventually taking a coherent form in his mind.Purely in terms of its guitar payload, the new album is a breathtaking Fourth of July fireworks show, with axes trading volleys from the left and right channels in old-school-stereo fashion, as Sweet breaks out a lineup of killer players, each sporting a distinct style, like a modern-day Moby Grape or Buffalo Springfield. They shine on incandescent tracks like Trick of the Light, the power-pop instant classic that opens the album, the bristling, Zuma-esque midtempo churner Bittersweet and the glorious four-guitar jangle fest Music for Love.Guitarists Jason Victor (Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3, Dream Syndicate), Val McCallum (Jackson Browne), John Moremen (The Orange Peels), Gary Louris (The Jayhawks) and Paul Chastain (Velvet Crush) blaze away in various combinations alongside the rhythm section of Menck (Chastains partner in Velvet Crush) and Sweet on bass and guitar; from song to song, he adds keys and Mellotron to his lead vocals and backing harmonies. The Bangles Debbi Peterson drums on four tracks, and The Zombies Rod Argent brings his elegant piano touch to Haunted, which unfurls with a Layla-like majesty, and Hello, in which Matthew straps himself into his time capsule for another journey to and from the future.On the second song, Entangled, he ruminates on the nature of time, a metaphysical notion hes tackled throughout his discography, the rock & roll equivalent of Kurt Vonneguts celebrated novel Slaughterhouse Five. Follow time as it flows both ways, the chorus begins, Dreaming in another direction/In universes all around/Were meeting in another dimension/Each one unaware. The song was inspired in part by Matthews monitoring of physics courses online. Entanglement is a physics term, he points out. Einstein defined it as spooky action at a distance. Its a hard-to-understand concept, where, if you change an electron on one end, the electron its paired with changes on the other end. They dont have to be in the same place. Because you do one thing on this end, you know another thing happens on that end.This interactive relationship could serve as a metaphor for the way Tomorrow Forever came together: Much of this interaction was done long-distance, 21st-century-style, as song files flew back and forth between Matthew and his collaborators over the Internet. After he and Menck finished a basic track, typically consisting of drums, bass, rhythm guitar and a scratch vocal, he sent it to each musician hed asked to contribute to the song in question, with the open-ended instruction, Play whatever you want. When the finished part arrived, Matthew experienced the cyberspace equivalent of Look what came in the mail today. He then wove the part into the track, building it piece by piece, while adding his multitracked backing vocals, any additional instrumentation he felt was needed and a lead vocalalthough in several cases he wound up sticking with the original scratch vocal.As the ideas swarming in his head were coalescing into batches of songs, Matthews fans were coming through big time. In the end, their donations to the Kickstarter fund would enable him to optimize every aspect of the project, from the elaborate gatefold packaging featuring harlequin cover girls painted in the early 60s by Maio from his own collection to the album mastering by Abbey Roads Sean Magee, best known for his nuanced remastering of The Beatles and John Lennons catalogs.Because of the generosity of the people who contributed, I wanted to make sure that everything on the record was really good and solid, Matthew says. Theyve been waiting for it for a long time, and I feel like I owe it to them.Matthews reward to those donors who were originally promised a set of demos (as it turned out, he didnt cut any) is Tomorrows Daughter, a 12-song LP culled from the sessions; longtime fans will draw parallels between this limited-edition satellite record, as he describes it, and the previous companion pieces Goodfriend and Son of Altered Beast. When that one arrives, 29 of the 38 songs will be in circulation.Matthew doesnt know where this flood of inspiration came from, but he has an inkling. Maybe it came from being in a new place, getting to recreate my studio here, he speculates. Also, I feel connected to being here in a way that I havent felt beforethe feeling of having two feet on solid ground. But having said all that, after my mother died, I couldnt even think about writing songs or starting to record for months and months. And in the end, Im pleased, because I feel like I do get close to dealing with my feelings about her death at certain spots on the record. So that does inform it, but at the same time it doesnt completely overtake it being a rock & roll record, or enjoyable rather than purely depressing. I had a lot of feelings about her death, and dying, but then I just sat down and wrote a bunch of songs. Some of them are connected to emotional stuff for me, obviously, because the songs arent devoid of feeling.Thats an understatement. Haunted is laced with mortal dread, while You Knew Me digs deep into the complicated nature of blood ties, concluding with a hard-earned epiphany: You knew me/I knew you too/Afraid of yourself/Afraid of me/Afraid of myself/Afraid of you. The penultimate Hello ponders the possible existence of multiple universes and parallel dimensions, opening into the climactic End Is Near, which closes the album on a note of unvarnished directness and gut-punch poignancy. A thorny contemplation of the finality of life, the song burrows down to the raw nub of the human condition.I had a lot of different feelings, but I didnt necessarily sit down to write a song about this feeling and that feeling, Matthew recalls. I just wrote batches of songs, and then it became clear what they might be about. For as long as it took to make the record, I didnt agonize over writing, or rewrite songs; it was all quick and mysterious, like always. Its just that I was dealing with moving for the first time in 20 years, and dealing with my momjust the shock of it all in general was what made it take as long as it did. What I mean is, I dont think any of it was overwrought; most everything is just the first thing anyone played.When an uncommonly gifted artist trusts and follows the lead of his intuition, the results can be magical. In terms of its musical density, thematic depth, emotional immediacy and sheer scale, Tomorrow Forever could be described as Matthew Sweets All Things Must Pass. That wasnt the planthere was no plan. It just turned out that way.Right after we moved here, says Matthew, I made this video for Kickstarter, and in it, if anything, I was promising myself that I was going to make a really heartfelt record.Mission accomplished.Bud Scoppa April 2017

RT66CASINO.COM A popular country band of the '80s and '90s, Shenandoah combined a tuneful, radio-friendly sound with melodies and arrangements that harked back to a more traditional style. Shenandoah were formed in 1984 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Guitarist Jim Seales and drummer Mike McGuire, both session musicians, assembled the group, bringing aboard bassist Ralph Ezell and keyboard man Stan Thorn, both of whom were also studio players. With the addition of lead singer Marty Raybon, the lineup was complete, and they began playing as the MGM Band. After McGuire brought songwriter Robert Byrne out to see the new group, Byrne arranged for them to cut a demo tape, which won the group a deal with Columbia Records. The deal with Columbia came with a small catch: the label believed the name the MGM Band could cause legal problems, so the group adopted the new handle Shenandoah, suggested to them by Columbia. The group's self-titled debut album, released in 1987, was a more polished and pop-oriented effort than their best-known work, though they reached the country Top 30 early in 1988 with "Stop the Rain." The following year, The Road Not Taken outlined the group's trademark approach to traditional country and it became their most successful album; six singles reached the country Top Ten, led by the number ones "The Church on Cumberland Road," "Sunday in the South," and "Two Dozen Roses." The Road Not Taken reached gold status by 1991, and earned Shenandoah the Favorite Newcomer award from Music City News. Extra Mile The first single from Shenandoah's third album, 1990's Extra Mile, built on the band's winning streak. "Next to You, Next to Me" became the band's biggest hit, topping the country charts for three weeks. It was followed into the Top Ten during 1990-1991 by the songs "Ghost in This House," "I Got You," and "The Moon Over Georgia." The group's streak of hit singles ended with "When You Were Mine" tiptoeing into the Top 40 in September 1991. Long Time Comin' Despite the success, trouble was brewing. Three other bands came forward in 1991 claiming rights to the name Shenandoah, and the resulting court costs and legal fees bankrupted the group by the end of the year. To make it even worse, Columbia -- who had named Shenandoah in the first place -- dropped the group from its roster. The band settled the differences by 1992 and returned to country music with a contract from RCA and the number two hit "Rock My Baby" in April of that year. Shenandoah's fourth album, 1992's Long Time Comin', also featured the Top 15 "Leavin's Been a Long Time Comin'." Under the Kudzu The group's fifth album, 1993's Under the Kudzu, continued Shenandoah's popularity, featuring the Top Five single "I Want to Be Loved Like That" and the group's fifth country chart-topper in early 1994, "If Bubba Can Dance (I Can Too)." Shenandoah moved to Liberty/Capitol in late 1994 to record their sixth album, In the Vicinity of the Heart. The album was released in January 1995, and featured the Top Tens "Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart" (a duet with Alison Krauss that won them a Grammy) and "Darned If I Don't (Danged If I Do)." By early 1996, Stan Thorn and Ralph Ezell had both left the band; Rocky Thacker became their new bassist, and Stan Munsey came aboard on keyboards. For 1996's Now and Then, the new lineup re-recorded many of Shenandoah's biggest hits from their time with Columbia, as well as cutting four new tunes. September 1996 brought another album, Shenandoah Christmas, which was their first holiday-themed release. Raybon Brothers In 1995, Raybon cut his first solo album, a gospel set for Sparrow Records, and in 1997 he teamed with his brother Tim Raybon for an album titled The Raybon Brothers, released by MCA Nashville. Their cover of Bob Carlisle's "Butterfly Kisses" reached the Top 40 of the country chart, and at the end of 1997, Raybon announced he was leaving Shenandoah. The group opted to disband following the loss of its singer, but the split didn't last. In 2000, Jim Seales, Mike McGuire, Stan Munsey, and Rocky Thacker re-formed as Shenandoah, with new vocalist Brent Lamb and additional guitarist Curtis Wright. This lineup cut an album named for the year it was released, 2000, and it produced one minor hit, "What Children Believe." Journeys Brent Lamb left the group in 2002, and Wright moved over to the lead vocal spot. Ralph Ezell returned to the group on bass. In 2006, Shenandoah partnered with the independent Cumberland Road label to release Journeys. It was a last hurrah for Ezell, who died on November 30, 2007, claimed by a heart attack. The band soldiered on, with Mike Folsom becoming their new bassist and Jimmy Yeary joining as lead singer. Doug Stokes took over for Yeary in 2011, and Chris Lucas became their new bassist. In August 2014, longtime fans welcomed the news that Marty Raybon had returned as lead singer of Shenandoah. With Raybon at center stage, the band's latest lineup -- Raybon, Mike McGuire, Stan Munsey, guitarist Jamie Michael, and bassist Paul Sanders -- released a new album, the gospel-themed Good News Travels Fast.

It all began a few weeks after Christmas, about 15 years ago. My dear dad had politely abandoned the electric guitar he had been bought by Santa/Mum as a “relax and unwind” gift.I, on the other hand, saw it as my opportunity to swoop in and become the family rock star…well, something like that. At the very least, I figured life looked better and attracted more boys to the yard if I walked around with a black Fender guitar in my arms. So, I quickly embarked on learning all the big hits, Oh Danny Boy and Stairway to Heaven being on high “MUST LEARN!” rotation. My dad’s “How To Play The Guitar” book from the 70’s that I had dug out from the variety of dusty music paraphernalia crammed into the piano chair seat at our family home was what you would call limited in the world of popular music circa 1999. However, I seemed to make it work. My angst filled teenage diary was now coming alive to the simple G, C & D chords I had now mastered, and my regular bathroom series concerts (audience in attendance maxing out at 2) were in full swing. For me to show any kind of interest in something for longer than at least 6 months had my parents kissing the ground and sky, agreeing that I may truly be invested in music and this might not just be another “phase” I was going through. Putting “Recording Budget” at the top of my Christmas wish list that year, my parents/Santa came through with the goods by way of $150 to spend at the local recording depot to track two of my most current musical creations. I was 15 and the world truly was my oyster. I had 2 “hits” in my back pocket, the teenage acne was fading fast, my first underage tattoo was ill fittingly inked across my lower back and my local digs of Devonport never looked brighter. And just as life dishes up sweet cake, it humbly throws you a truck of lemons right after. My dad got sick, real sick. He passed away not long after and my world quickly fell down around me. At 16 years old, I never understood the weight of his passing, the hole it would create in my life and the way it would shape the years to come. It was songwriting and that enchanting attraction of music that would catch my fall that year, and it did, in a big way. I wrote a song called, Hallelujah. A song that pieced together all the sentiments, all the loss, all the sadness in losing a parent. It truly was the only way I could pry open my feelings at the time to relieve the pressure valve on my heart. After a year in Argentina, a failed relationship, and a move to Australia, I was back in the swing of life. Age 21, working 3 waitressing jobs in Sydney and saying yes to every shitty gig I could hustle, I felt like I was on top of the world again. I later signed to Island Records, ditched 2 of the waitressing jobs and began work on my first E.P. with Tony Buchen. This is when I started really tasting the musician dream. Following the somewhat underground success of Extended Play, I quickly learned that the U.S. was where I needed to be. My A&R at the label agreed and next minute I found myself making my first full length album Holy Smoke at prestigious Capitol Studios with Mike Elizondo at the helm and The Cardinals as my band. It truly was a whirlwind time in my life. I mean, I even had kittens brought to an interview with Rolling Stone one time to just “set the vibe” for the interview. Were Unicorns going to show up for breakfast with me tomorrow? Quite possibly. For a little gal from New Zealand, this all seemed like some definite pie in the sky shit, but I was blissfully taking it all in my stride at the time. My slight obsession with a band called Shovels & Rope quickly became full blown, and I tracked down anyone associated to help me write and produce the next album. Enter, Butch Walker & Jake Sinclair. These two gents were pivotal in my career, setting the tone of a “fuck you, I got this” attitude and more importantly, a careless abandon when it came to red wine. We all got on splendidly and spent a glorious summer in Santa Monica writing and recording, Gravel & Wine. That album went on to do some great things. Not only did it swipe a few Tui Awards in NZ (very proud moment indeed!), it helped kick of the sync career I now have. Placements with Heineken, Grey’s Anatomy and Nissan began rolling in and my desire to make the USA home was getting stronger. I was heavily touring at this point, I think a mixture of escapism and a decent excuse for unwashed hair seemed a big draw at the time. In the summer of 2013 I was invited to play The Vans Warped Tour. Without a doubt, I was the most obvious fishy out of water that summer.  Entering the stage with my rockabilly/western attired band, amongst a sea of death metal and punk music we were definitely a band for the parents that accompanied their young children that summer. However, it was there that I almost stumbled into my future by finding my greatest love and now husband Jason Butler. A catalyst in every sense of the word, he was the man that helped pack my bags and make the hop over the pacific to the city of Los Angeles a reality. Ready for album number 3, Blood To Bone consumed 2015 with writing and recording. I felt a larger than usual dose of self-deprecation that year and decided the only way to quell that feeling of inadequacy was to try producing an album. So, I did. A quick surprise marriage to Jason in Hawaii rounded out 2015 and with my tanks full of love I was ready to take a break from music for a while, or at least I thought I was. Like everything in life, well, particularly with music, when I make these bold statements to myself about packing it all in, the music universe always finds an uncanny way to show me the juiciest of carrots to lure me back. I was convinced that 2016 would be a year of honing in on myself as a writer for others, hanging up my boots on being an artist for a minute. Little did I know, the “artist carrot” would be especially juicy that year. It began with Nashville. A trip down there during a hot summer is like playing out a scene from a classic romance film…think The Notebook. My friend (NOT Ryan Gosling, but wished it was) and I sat on the porch after a day’s writing, Thai food take out and homemade old fashioned in hand, reflecting on the glory of the day as the warm air whipped around us, I kept thinking all these songs we were writing would be better if I tucked them away for one of my albums. After 11 “tuck away tracks” I found myself looking at a very decent body of work. And that will be an album called Ivory, releasing March 2018. So there you have it, a bio of sorts, but rather a peek into the last 15 years of my careers’ twists and turns and how it got me to here.
