Bonnie Bishop "Too Late"

Oh, so much to tell. People continue falling down the Music Fog rabbit hole, expanding the audience as we approach 38 million views and 47,000 subscribers on YouTube. So we said, us Foggers, we said ‘Let’s get together. We don’t need to have it be an event, festival or conference, we can just do it ourselves.” I enlisted the support of Ron Brice at 3rd & Lindsley, the venerable Nashville club that has some of the best sound in Music City. The Music Fog crew drove eleven hours to get here from DC, and we set up shop in the very cool Backstage. We booked 15 sessions, and filmed for three days. We can’t wait to bring you everything. We made new friends and filmed several folks who we have had the honor of working with before.

One of them, and our first video from the new crop, is Bonnie Bishop. We are so excited for the path Bonnie is walking. She has a brand new album, Ain’t Who I Was, coming out on Thirty Tigers Records on May 27th. It was produced by none other than Dave Cobb. His recent credits include the red hot Americana trio of Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, and Chris Stapleton. A couple of nights ago, I was flipping through the late nights on TV, and saw the blue eyed soul of Hall & Oates, followed by the big, Gospel infused sounds of Mavis Staples. As I was thinking about what to write, I thought this music juxtaposed is quite perfect to set the mood. If you get the opportunity to go to SXSW, make sure you see Bonnie, if not, listen to my radio station, Sun Radio, to hear live sets from legends, friends, and breakout artists the week of March 15th. We’ve been waiting for this moment for Bonnie Bishop. SXSW will be the launch of it. Here is a taste of what’s ahead, with the Music Fog recording of “Too Late.” Fasten your seatbelt, it is going to be a wild ride!

Henry Wagons "King Hit"

I get to do such cool stuff. I am ever appreciative! Here are a few highlights from my last week of music. Last Wednesday in Franklin, TN, the Music City Roots lineup rocked hard. It was a tribute to Sam Phillips of Sun Records, and Peter Cooper hosted. On hand were Billy Burnette and Shawn Camp, Luther Dickinson, Sleepy LaBeef, Colin Linden, and Bobby Rush. It was for sure one of my favorite nights of music in a long time, steeped in the Memphis stew of black meets white and gospel meets bad boy. You know, the stuff out of which Rock & Roll was born in the first place. Then, over the weekend, I got to witness performances from Webb Wilder, The Surreal McCoys, The Supersuckers, Drivin' N Cryin’, Dan Baird, Jesse Dayton, and Girls, Guns & Glory at the Shore Leave Showdown in Miami. It all was badass as can be.

One of Music Fog’s favorite badasses is about to put out a solo album. Henry Wagons hails from Australia, and yes, he channels the spirit of the abovementioned musical legacy. After What I Did Last Night was produced in Nashville under the watchful eye of Skylar Wilson who has worked with Justin Townes Earle, Caitlin Rose, and Andrew Combs. The album abounds in defiant twang. It chronicles Henry Wagons' journey, from misspent youth to road hard troubadour, to new father. It was several years ago, in 2011 that Henry Wagons first came to play for Music Fog at Threadgill’s. From the Fog Bank, here he is with the tune “Willie Nelson.” And here is a tease, an exclusive premiere of one of the songs from his new album, which comes out tomorrow. Rebelliousness abounds! Click above to listen to “King Hit.” Can you hear the Memphis echo?
