LOUISIANA RED HOT RECORDS

Posts in the UPCOMING category

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

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.

Corey Henry - Lapeitah“The Next Funk Superstar from New Orleans”

The former leader of the Little Rascals Brass band turned favorite lead player for New Orleans jam band phenom Galactic, Corey Henry stepping out with Lapeitah, his national debut release from Louisiana Red Hot Records. Another outstanding Treme trombonist in the tradition of Trombone Shorty and Glen David Andrews, the Treme Funktet frontman is himself a brass band funk master with a rich pedigree that reads like a New Orleans royal coat of arms. While Corey’s original bands have created many of the most popular songs on the second line scene, on Lapeitah, Henry teams up with Brooklyn based Pimps of Joytime producer Brian J to breathe new life into the notoriously infectious brass/funk sound.

With guest appearances from heavy hitters like Corey Glover from Living Colour and Greg Thomas from George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, the album’s thrust lies in its ability to sweep from the broad, epic rock of Jimi Hendrix’s “If 6 Was 9,” to the timeless whoop and holler of the absolute new standard in second-line pride song found in “Baby C’mon,” with push-to- the-edge vocal from Cole Williams. Featuring one of the last known recordings of the late Trumpet Black and a keep-it- in-the- family collaboration with Henry’s daughter Jazz, the album plays like a 6th Ward block party, complete with youthful wit and the aged wisdom of the old guard porch stoopers. Equal parts anthemic and soulful, Lapeitah is most importantly, unbelievably funky.

Gregg Martinez: Soul of the Bayou

One of the most powerful, knock-the-paint-of-the-wall vocalists South Louisiana has ever produced” – Offbeat Magazine

A premier, powerhouse vocalist from the Spanish Creoles of Bayou Lafourche of Louisiana, the sensationally soulful Gregg Martinez was recognized early on in local churches and bars with comparisons to Sam Cooke and Luther Vandross. The young Martinez rapidly ascended all the way to an exclusive contract with billionaire Donald Trump in Atlantic City, and a seven- figure recording deal with multi-platinum Philly producers Victor Carstarphen and Keith Benson. When the bubble burst on the brink of stardom, Martinez found himself returning to his native Bayou, crooning the Blues and Soul of his roots, ultimately bringing him the recent incredible honor of singing for the funeral of the great Percy Sledge.

On his latest collection, Soul of the Bayou, Gregg Martinez delivers the deep, healing kind of soul that only this veteran baritone knows how to conjure. Produced and engineered by Grammy award-winning Tony Daigle (Hunter Hayes, John Cleary), Martinez’s 11th studio album showcases his astounding versatility as a vocalist and performer. While the blues-driven grooves of “I Can’t Stand the Rain” and “If You Want Me to Stay” prove that Martinez can still pack the dance floor, the mournfully piercing ballads of “Who’s Loving You” and “You’ve Got to Hurt Before You Heal” remind listeners that this is a voice of a man who has lived through it all. With stellar, standout performances from Charles Ventre on keyboards, Gregg Kingston on slide guitar, and Pat Breaux on sax, not to mention all the grit guitar titan Sonny Landreth offers on “That Old Wind,” Soul of the Bayou soars out of the swamps and onto a plain untouchable by time.
