Representing the best music from the birthplace of modern American Music, Louisiana Red Hot Records is the “for us, by us” indie record label that serves as the home for the next generation of Louisiana legends.

In our 22nd year, Red Hot is experiencing a rebirth and celebrating our new team’s first full year of releases with a “Best of 2018” compilation. The compilation includes tracks from legendary Grammy winners Cyril Neville and Dr. John, as well as selections from the soundtrack of the powerful documentary One Note At A Time, which tells the story of the New Orleans Musician’s Clinic, founded to heal the musical community after Hurricane Katrina. Also featuring a broad range of emerging artists like New Orleans’ Queen of Neo-Soul Erica Falls, two-time Grammy nominee Sean Ardoin, “Future Funk” phenom Water Seed, hard-hitting funk/rock outfit Noisewater, and poignant singer/songwriter Lilli Lewis, the release will be available on all digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon.com, Google Play and Spotify starting on Friday, December 14th, 2018.

“He has no competition in his genres, he’s the Jimmy Hendrix of the accordion.” – Rolling Stone magazine

Born March 3, 1979 in Lafayette, Louisiana, was the last of eight children of Rockin’ Dopsie, Sr., a pioneer of Zydeco music. To this day, Dwayne attributes his passion and prodigious abilities to his father, but the truth is he was simply born to play this music. “This is my calling – Zydeco music is in my blood and it is my heart and soul.”

A virtuoso tradition holder with a high power style of his own, Dwayne Dopsie and his band, the genre defying Zydeco Hellraisers have thrilled audiences over 40 countries and hundreds of cities since his debut at age 19. Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers have enjoyed National exposure with outlets like Rolling Stone Magazine, Good morning America, CBS this morning, Food Network, and The Jamie Kennedy experiment, and his latest release was nominated for a Grammy in 2018. Louisiana Red Hot looks forward to releasing his national debut followup in early 2019.

“Cyril Neville releases the new box set Endangered Species: The Complete Recordings, a five-disc collection that brings together all of Neville’s recordings on Endangered Species Records, as well as an Essential Recordings compilation taken from the collection.

“…we’re premiering the new video for a previously unreleased track that leads off both sets, “Love Has Got To Win.”

Louisiana Red Hot Records is proud to welcome Offbeat Magazine’s 2017 Best Female Vocalist, Erica Falls to its roster.

Erica has recorded and performed with the likes of Grammy Award Winning Allen Toussaint, Joe Sample, Dr. John, Sting, No Doubt, Jennifer Hudson and John Fogerty. On her debut CD “ME, MYSELF AND MUSIC” her singing, arrangements, and songwriting are on full display. She was also handpicked by Lee Daniels himself for the lead singing role in his critically acclaimed feature film “The Butler.”

While touring with the nationally known funk band Galactic, Falls is writing and recording her sophomore project titled “Vintage Soul”. “Music is a universal healer no matter the language barrier and I am privileged to be one of its messengers.”

Already a hometown triumph, her latest release “HomeGrown” will be re-introduced to national markets by Louisiana Red Hot Records in the summer of 2018 in anticipation of a new studio release.
