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.

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.
