Now that I’ve finally put 2014 to rest, it’s time to start talking about my 2015 releases!! My first add this year was the ripping KINGSBOROUGH. I met these Napa Valley dudes via their producer Jason Carmer (who’d also worked with my Animal Hours record from last fall). These guys are a straight-ahead Real Authentic Rock And Roll band, with the kind of bluesy influences that fans of Alabama Shakes and Black Keys will appreciate. Make that DID and DO appreciate, I guess, because this band has already KILLED IT on the charts!! After clocking in at #16 Most Added on CMJ’s Top 20 Adds chart back in January, this album has already gone on to chart on the Top 200 for SEVEN WEEKS IN A ROW, including a peak at #73. One of the strongest showings I’ve seen in a while – you people love this band!! YES!!
THE NIGHT, THE GRIND, AND THE WOES
Fresh off of their festival debut at BottleRock Napa Valley 2014, Kingsborough has been creating an electric buzz as a new modern classic, spinning out soulful rock n’ roll. BAM Magazine describes their BottleRock performance as “rocking it like the big boys used to…in the same way that Springsteen has always done.”
From stage to studio, this independent group of four Santa Rosa, CA musicians embodies the old school “working band” mentality with a heavy focus on raw performance. Their vast array of influences, ranging from Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Doobie Brothers to Jack White and The Kings of Leon, creates a sound that is familiar yet indefinable. Their debut full-length album, The Night, The Grind and The Woes, was produced by Grammy Award winner Jason Carmer (Third Eye Blind, Run-DMC, Kimya Dawson, Chuck Prophet, The Donnas).
