REVEREND HORTON HEAT
REVEREND HORTON HEAT
Loaded .38s, space heaters, and big skies. Welcome to the lethal, littered landscape of Jim Heath's imagination. True to his high evangelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing & reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of American music. He's a time-travelling space-cowboy on an endless interstellar musical tour, and we are all the richer and "psychobillier" for getting to tag along.

Seeing REVEREND HORTON HEAT live is a transformative experience. Flames come off the guitars. Heat singes your skin. There's nothing like the primal tribal rock 'n roll transfiguration of a Reverend Horton Heat show. Jim becomes a slicked-back 1950's rock 'n roll shaman channeling Screamin' Jay Hawkins through Buddy Holly, while Jimbo incinerates the Stand-Up Bass. And then there are the "Heatettes". Those foxy rockabilly chicks dressed in poodle-skirts and cowboy boots slamming the night away. It's like being magically transported into a Teen Exploitation picture from the 1950s that's currently taking place in the future.

Listening to the REVEREND HORTON HEAT is tantamount to injecting pure musical nitrous into the hot-rod engine of your heart. The Reverend's commandants are simple. Rock hard, drive fast, and live true. And no band on this, or any other, planet rocks harder, drives faster, or lives truer than the Reverend Horton Heat. These itinerant preachers actually practice what they preach. They live their lives by the Gospel of Rock 'n Roll.

From the High-Octane Spaghetti-Western Wall of Sound in "Big Sky" to the dark driving frenetic paranoia of "400 Bucks" to the brain-melting Western Psychedelic Garage purity of "Psychobilly Freakout" The Rev's music is the perfect soundtrack to the Drive-In Movie of your life.

Jim Heath and Jimbo Wallace have chewed up more road than the Google Maps drivers. For twenty-five Psychobilly years, they have blazed an indelible, unforgettable, and meteoric trail across the globe with their unique blend of musical virtuosity, legendary showmanship, and mythic imagery.
DALE WATSON
DALE WATSON
Dale Watson isn't one to uphold the music industry's status quo. He's moving forward on his own terms and true to his own convictions. Even with frequent proclamations declaring him one of country music's last authentic voices (like that in Crazy Again--a recent documentary on Watson's life--when a fan declares, "son, you play country like country was when country was country"), Watson is done with the "C" word and what it's come to represent in modern times. So much so that he's created his own genre, simply called Ameripolitan.
ROSIE FLORES
ROSIE FLORES
Award-winning "Girl of the Century", "Working Girl with Guitar" Rosie Flores has gone surfing, knifing her turquoise axe through some new uncharted musical waters.

These past few years have found her nabbing two fan voted Ameripolitan Awards in 2014 - taking one for Best Female Honky Tonk and the other for Best Female Rockabilly; a Peabody Award that she accepted onstage at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City for her narration of the documentary Whole Lotta Shakin; producing Janis Martin's 2012 CD The Blanco Session" which tied at number one with Rosie's Working Girls Guitar on the FAR chart; and a multimedia Janis Martin Tribute that she created and performed at the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame in 2012.

All these accolades propelled her into performing at the Chuck Berry Tribute at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with other great musicians including Vernon Reid and David Johansen, which led Rolling Stone Magazine to proclaim that she was "one of the most impressive acts of the evening… and the only performer brave enough to playfully attempt a duck walk."

Her current records are Girl Of The Century (2010 Bloodshot Records) , and Working Girls Guitar (2012 Bloodshot Records). The latest record marks a first for Rosie as she is not only the producer but is the only guitar player, which garnered feature stories in Guitar World, Premiere Guitar and Guitar Player. She penned some new tunes that ride some new waves. Twanging between a rock and a surf place, Rosie fires up the big chord guns on songs that tell some hard earned tales.

Rosie's solos recordings have found homes on both the Billboard and Gavin charts and are featured in seven motion pictures. Her revved-up performances from California to New York have won legions of fans and earned appearances on such nationally broadcast television programs as "Austin City Limits" and "Late Night with Conan O'Brien."

"Flores, a guitar-toting rockabilly singer from Texas, has long been the darling of the country circuits in L.A. and Austin (where August 31 was declared Rosie Flores Day, in 2006). She has a voice that, like Gram Parsons's, cracks in all the right places and an untempered approach to guitar picking that's a wonder to behold." - The New Yorker 'Night Life'

"Rosie Flores is an ambassador of 'Ameripolitan.' She brings rockabilly, honky-tonk and Western swing." - Paul Cambra, Auburn Journal
