LOUISIANA RED HOT RECORDS

Posts in the ROCK category

Imagine a child of the 80s/90s underground scene falling in with a 70s prog, classically-trained cellist. What do ya get? A refreshing and often unexpected sound. The Two’s are hitting the road this summer with their new release Push On.

The Two’s new EP release Push On showcases the duo’s musical styles covering rock, roots, bluegrass, and classical. The writing and arrangements intentionally work the interplay between the vocal and the cello supported by a rhythmic foundation of guitar and percussion. Recorded in New Orleans by Adam Keil, the five-track EP was mixed by Ben Lorio and Grammy winner Sylvia Massy. The Two’s have opened for such acts as rock legend Heart, international pop Star Zucchero, Dave Matthew’s side man Tim Reynolds, and have placed music on the Emmy award-winning show “Nip/Tuck.”

About Ruby Rendrag
Ruby – the band octopus – delivers a sultry vocal and sets the groove with her guitar and foot-drum kit. She was born to a Houma Indian Mother and a banjo playing, West Virginian Father. Ruby has been a part of the New Orleans music scene for over 18 years performing as a solo artist, and as a side woman with many local acts. She lives a life immersed in music. As owner and manager of NOLA Muse, she helps local, national, and international artists plan and execute their recording projects. She infuses The Two’s with her bluegrass-Led Zeppelin-80’s underground influences.

About Suki Kuehn
Cellist Suki Kuehn was made in Japan (a Navy brat). Growing up he was exposed by his parents to every kind of classical and theatrical music. Although he became an nuclear engineer, Suki has studied cello “on the side” from the fifth grade on. He has lived throughout the US, finally settling in New Orleans after a stint driving subs for the Navy. He plays either an old French cello that for who-knows-how-long lived in a barn south of Paris, or a battered German cello bought from an ancient woman in a dark French Quarter alley. Using a few tasteful effects, Suki weaves texture and force into every song, hinting at rock, folk, jazz, and classical styles.

Jonathon Boogie Long - Trying To Get There“Long plays with intensity and fire, as if the riffs come directly from his soul.” Kim Welsh, OffBeat Magazine

Young blues phenom Jonathon “Boogie” Long used the crown he earned as Guitar Center’s “King Of The Blues” as a push to discover himself as the complete artist we meet on his national debut release Trying To Get There. His defining sense of confidence thrusts the album out the gate with the heavy hitting “Head Over Heels,” leading the listener across the varied terrain of Blues, R&B and Country that only an authentic Louisiana slinger could. As the “Boogie” name has filtered its way around blues, Jonathon has found himself on stage with a host of legends including Greg Allman and ZZ Top.

Revealing both his fire and awe inspiring facility, Long delivers a merciless and striking album that nods a head to his roots while driving deliberately into the future. Capturing the high energy and signature confidence of his live show, Trying to Get There is the perfect introduction to the true talent of Jonathon Boogie Long.

722512394971​​”Lilli Lewis has Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s virtuoso commitment to her instrument and Odetta’s vocal power, creating a show that is a force of nature.” Eric Cager, Cutting Edge CE

Emerging Psychedelic folk-rock and soul diva Lilli Lewis unleashes her national debut on Louisiana Red Hot with her latest single “O, Let Your Light Shine Bright.” Lewis is an award-winning pianist, composer, and songstress of rare grace and grit who conjures the likes of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Big Mama Thornton, Odetta, and Janis Joplin when in full gear. The Athens, Georgia native first made her presence known in New Orleans through “The Shiz,” her indie rock and soul band known as the Alabama Shakes of the Northshore. Lewis made her home here in New Orleans in 2014, and immediately began performing with some of the city’s favorites including Betty Shirley, Sharon Martin, and sousaphone maestro Kirk Joseph’s Backyard Groove.

In 2016, following an independent release of a new EP Orange Music, Vol. 1, Lewis teamed up with Louisiana Red Hot Records for national debut release with her latest single “O, Let Your Light Shine Bright,” making her the only woman currently represented among Louisiana Red Hot’s esteemed roster. Co-produced by Lewis with TJ Barends, the single is a warm and unassuming invitation that sinks easily beneath the skin while its B side “Walk Upon Water” is an all-out festival style jam complete with a saxophone chorus and searing guitar work.

With vocals said to have “enough energy to power a large city,” Lewis brings her songs of empowerment and personal responsibility to ever widening audiences, never failing to deliver “innovative, soulful music that will never go out of style.” www.lillilewis.com

Colin Lake - One Thing Album Cover“Songs as sturdy as his fleet-fingered, blues-based guitar skills”
– Keith Spera, Times Picayune

While scores of talented young musicians have flocked to New Orleans in the years following Hurricane Katrina, among the most outstanding is Pacific Northwest native Colin Lake, whose passion for life and innate feel for roots music makes him perfectly suited to the culture of the Crescent City.

His soulful vocals and searing touch on the lap steel reveal an affinity for the works of countless blues greats, but his knack for original song craft truly sets him apart.

Lake shines in his Louisiana Red Hot debut, One Thing That’s For Sure. Produced by Eric Heigle (Arcade Fire, Lost Bayou Ramblers, Givers, Dr. John).He is joined by the cream of the young crop of southern musicians; including Luther Dickenson (North Mississippi All Stars), Maggie Koerner (Galactic), jazz vocalist Sasha Masakowski and actress/singer Topsy Chapman (12 Years a Slave). Paired with a band that includes veteran keyboardist Marc Adams (Eric Lindell, Tab Benoit, Marva Wright), bassist Bill Richard, and drummer Erik Golson, Lake delivers an album that moves from sunny summer jams to powerful love songs, haunting instrumentals and dark, scorching rockers. Fans of roots music, blues, soul and jam bands will find much to love here.
