Nicole Atkins

To borrow a phrase from heavens new poet laureate, Leonard Cohen, Nicole Atkins was born with the gift of a golden voice. But somewhere along the way she misplaced it. Goodnight Rhonda Lee is the story of Nicole finding her voice, and how, in doing so, she went a little crazy.

Great Art is a journey and Nicole Atkins traveled quite a distance to bring us Goodnight Rhonda Lee. As Nicole explains it, This record came to me at a time of deep transition. Some days were good, some not so good. What I did gain, though, from starting to make some changes and going inward, and putting it out on the table, was a joy in what I do again. Joy in the process and a newfound confidence that I dont think Ive ever had until now. The album title, Goodnight Rhonda Lee, also came from those feelings. Rhonda Lee was kind of my alias for bad behavior, and it was time to put that persona to bed.

Indianola

Owen Beverly is INDIANOLA, the culmination of this rare upbringing and a career of performing and writing music all over the world in a variety of endeavors. With a multi-year stopover in Charleston, South Carolina behind him, Beverly moved to New York City and spent years as a touring member of Danish indie-pop act, Oh Land. After six years living in Brooklyn, Owen found himself called back to the South and his roots. The love of the land, the old stories of love and heartbreak, the fierce tenacity of life in the midst of hardship, sorrow, and joy break out in INDIANOLAS music. The debut INDIANOLA record, produced by Michael Trent (Shovels & Rope) and recorded within the swampy confines of Johns Island, SC is an aggressive stomp through the southern gothic: part old-school rock n roll, part singer-songwriter. Not unlike the Mississippi delta itself, known for its mythic crossroads, INDIANOLA finds itself at the intersection of heritage and innovation, with a firm and enduring grasp on the traditions from which it was born.
