For Ian Hunter's second album, All American Alien Boy, he surrounded himself with top-notch session players as well as some impressive rock royalty that included everyone from journeyman drummer Aynsley Dunbar to jazz bass wizard Jaco Pastorius.
The Long Night, features vocal and writing collaborations with the celebrated Welsh singer Jem (her first new recording in six years), Ko (a Canadian street poet, has enjoyed international success with his mix of urban beats and world-weary life observations), Big B (an extended member of the Suburban Noize crew, and has had hits at alternative radio), as well as jam-band mainstay Samantha Stollenwerck and EDM chanteuse Liz Primo. It is an album influenced equally by the dark tension of Massive attack, the psychedelia of Pink Floyd and the soul of Curtis Mayfield.
Featuring: Dave Edmunds, Jeff Beck, George Harrison, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Carl Perkins with Slim Jim Phantom & Lee Rocker, Clarence Clemons, Willie Nelson, and The Crawling King Snakes (Robert Plant, Paul Martinez, Phil Collins with Dave Edmunds)
Saville Row began in 2011 when Troy Luccketta (drummer for the legendary band, Tesla) introduced Mika Greiner (former lead singer of the West Coast band, Redline 5) to Marc Bonilla (Toy Matinee, Keith Emerson Band), a prominent guitarist and composer in the L.A. Music scene.
Pure, haunting, meditative, somber, simple and classic: The Everly Brothers’ 1958 Songs Our Daddy Taught Us made a seminal artistic statement without pretension. A concept album before there was such thing; a return to basics before rock music had even matured. It all came naturally to Don and Phil Everly, the chart-topping brothers, recording stars aged just 21 and 19 respectively.
