“Official Soundtrack from the Award-Winning Documentary”

This star-studded soundtrack from the multi-award-winning documentary “One Note At a Time” features Grammy winners Dr. John and “the Soul Queen of New Orleans” Irma Thomas, Damion and Charmaine Neville, British jazz drummer Barry Martyn, jazz trumpeter Kermit Ruffins, Al “Carnival Time” Johnson, Walter Payton, Jr., The Cliff Hines Quintet, Ben Jaffe of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and poet Shelton “Shakespear” Alexander, among others with original score by Ray Russell.

The feature film from UK director Renee Edwards focuses on the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic and its invaluable role in supporting musicians returning to New Orleans after the destruction of Hurricane Katrina. The live and pre-recorded cuts include original takes on popular favorites from “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” to “This Little Light of Mine” and Al “Carnival Time” Johnson’s New Orleans classic “Carnival Time.” With proceeds from album sales returning to the source that inspired the film, the “One Note At A Time Official Soundtrack” is heartfelt and joyful in a way only New Orleans can deliver.

NOISEWATER is a New Orleans funk outfit that re-ignites the genre by fusing rock, jazz, reggae, and metal with one question in mind: “Will it FUNK?”

Throwing down where others are phoning it in, NOISEWATER’s hard rocking edge harnesses the New Orleans culture that inspires them while setting stages ablaze with the sheer power of their sound. NOISEWATER is fronted by Norwegian born Ole, Oddlokken, whose psychedelic tenor sax blazes over, under and through a taut, throbbing rhythm section with Brandon Hotard, guitar; former bass player John Meunier, Jr., Cody Fahnestock, drums, Chad Toups, percussion, and the searing Chad Carlile on keyboard and harmonica. The tongue in cheek titles found on their eponymous Louisiana Red Hot Records debut (Smacka Pitch, Boose Looty, Funkoteque) remind you at once that this band will always bring the party. Singles like the aforementioned “Funkoteque,” “Whatcha Know,” and “Funk as Prescribed” are no-holds-barred jams that make the body move and never let up.

NOISEWATER is a local favorite at New Orleans’ favorite venue, the world renowned Tipitina’s, and has supported some of New Orleans’ most potent exports (New Orleans Suspects, Soul Rebels, Billy Iuso and the Restless Natives and Bo Dollis Jr. and the Wild Magnolias to name a few) in concert halls and festival stages all over the Gulf Region. NOISEWATER proves time and again that funk is as commanding and explosive as it ever was, and in New Orleans, they’re leading the charge with “Bro-Funk” at its finest. www.noisewatermusic.com

“Cyril Neville has long been one of our most soulful voices. That, along with his writing and production talents, are on vital display in this stirring collection.” – Jim Hynes, Elmore Magazine

On Saturday, July 14 The Recording Academy™ will honor its 2018 Special Merit Awards recipients with “GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends®.” Among those honored will be the likes of Neil Diamond, Emmylou Harris, Tina Turner, and Uptown Ruler himself, Cyril Neville, being celebrated for his work with The Meters. All will occur the day after Neville’s 5-disc box set of his independently produced “Endangered Species” catalog will be released on his son Omari Neville’s nascent label World Order Records, distributed by Louisiana Red Hot.

2018 has proven to be a banner year for the youngest among the Neville Brothers which started with Cyril being awarded OffBeat Magazine’s “Best Male Vocalist” prize. The release represents Cyril and his progeny taking back full control of his career and music, which is plenty to celebrate. The box set includes sought after titles produced by Cyril that were previously unavailable, and which feature a host of Louisiana legends on record. The companion compilation of “Essential Recordings,” curated by LRHR, has already charted on Amazon’s Top 20 Blues releases and is receiving stellar reviews and features the brand new single “Love Has Got To Win” whose exclusive debut will appear on www.relix.com on the day of the album release.

Louisiana Red Hot Records is the proud distributor for New Orleans’ Future Funk super group Water Seed whose latest release “Say Yeah!! Live at the Blue Nile” debuted on the Billboard Charts in four different categories.

Billboard Top 40 Recording Artist, Water Seed is a progressive innovative band that dares to bring musicianship, dexterity and creativity to Funk, Soul, R&B, Fusion, and Future Funk. Spearheading the progressive R&B movement, Water Seed is reminiscent of the funkier side of the R&B genre. Mixing the sounds of James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, Prince and Earth Wind and Fire, Water Seed captures a modern sound that bridges the musical gap a la Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson and Childish Gambino.

Key appearances include the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Essence Festival, Trombone Shorty’s Shorty Fest, and headlining at the Apollo Theater with a sold out show. Beyond their weekly residency at New Orleans’ esteemed Blue Nile, Water Seed maintains an aggressive touring schedule, sharing stages with Janelle Monae, Tank and the Bangas, Lalah Hathaway, Tisha Campbell-Martin, and Cyril Neville. Their self-released studio album “We Are Stars” climbed to #27 in the R&B album charts. The follow-up live album “Say Yeah!!” is a love letter to the worldwide fans who have fueled their steady climb. The Deluxe edition includes live concert footage for all songs included on this one of a kind recording.
