I AM A SONG AUTOGRAPHED BOOK BY AARON NEVILLE

Sweet Relief has a new item up on Charitybuzz. Please bid and help us raise money to assist career musicians facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.

Own this signed copy of I Am A Song book of poetry by Aaron Neville.

I Am A Song, Aaron’s latest work, is a collection of poetry authored by Aaron himself. Aaron said that he wrote about his connection with God and how He made him feel. Aaron would write from day to day, when he was down, and when he was up. Writing these poems, to Aaron, was therapeutic.

“These songs helped to mold me into who I am,” says Aaron Neville. “They’re all dear to my heart, and they rode with me, in my bones, through all these years.” With MY TRUE STORY, one of the world’s finest singers is revisiting the music he grew up with, and adding a few new spins along the way. Neville’s first release for Blue Note Records is a collection of twelve classic doo-wop numbers, performed in his utterly inimitable vocal style, and co-produced by Blue Note President Don Was and Keith Richards.

Sweet Relief has a new item up on Charitybuzz. Please bid and help us raise money to assist career musicians facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.

Own this a Fender Jaguar guitar that was signed by The National!

Formed in 1999, the Ohio-raised, Brooklyn-based band consists of vocalist Matt Berninger plus two pairs of brothers: Aaron Dessner (guitar, bass, piano) and Bryce Dessner (guitar), and Scott Devendorf (bass, guitar) and Bryan Devendorf (drums). Early albums The National and Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers preceded their signing to Beggars Banquet in 2004. Alligator (2005), including ‘Mr. November’ and ‘Daughters Of The Soho Riots’, raised their profile as the band grew into a compelling and incendiary live proposition. Boxer (2007), featuring songs like ‘Fake Empire’, ‘Mistaken For Strangers’ and ‘Start A War’, sold over three times as many copies as its predecessor and saw them gracing the likes of the Letterman show and touring with REM. Barack Obama later used ‘Fake Empire’ in his election campaign, on the soundtrack to the promotional video Signs Of Hope And Change. Trouble Will Find Me is The National’s sixth album, and has been released to huge critical and commercial success, cemented by the band’s celebrated live show.

MEET SARA EVANS & RECEIVE 2 TICKETS TO THE 2014 CONCERT OF YOUR CHOICE

Sweet Relief has a new item up on Charitybuzz. Please bid and help us raise money to assist career musicians facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.

You and a guest will meet Sara Evans when you attend the 2014 concert of your choice! To see tour dates, click HERE.

A female country traditionalist during a time when they were quite rare around Nashville, Sara Evans gained her RCA contract in 1996 after her rendition of Buck Owens’ perennial chestnut “I’ve Got a Tiger by the Tail” impressed its songwriter, Harlan Howard, so much that he considered himself duty-bound to help her. While growing up poor in rural Missouri, Evans performed with her family’s band — at the age of four — and even recorded in Nashville several years later.

She eventually married and moved to Oregon in 1992, but continued to perform as Sara Evans & North Santiam. The group opened for Willie Nelson and Tim McGraw, among others, but Evans eventually returned to Nashville to try to remake her career. There she impressed Howard enough that he recommended her to RCA executives, who connected her with producer Pete Anderson (a veteran of many albums by Dwight Yoakam). After her debut album, Three Chords & the Truth, was released in July 1997, Evans earned a special honor by being handpicked by George Jones to open a special show in Nashville. No Place That Far followed a year later, and in 2000 she resurfaced with Born to Fly. The title track was a big hit for Evans, and the album eventually peaked in the Top Ten of Billboard’s country charts.

She followed that up with 2003′s Restless, and returned in 2005 with the Top Ten hit Real Fine Place. Following some tumultuous developments in her personal life, Evans stayed out of recording studios for the latter half of the 2000s. Her label issued Greatest Hits in 2007. She returned to the popular arena with Stronger in early 2011. Reentering the studio in November 2012 with producer Mark Bright, Evans set about recording her seventh studio album, Slow Me Down. Preceded by the release of the title track in September 2013, the album appeared early in March 2014.

Take home a signed Gloriana CD and an autographed, foam core poster from their tour!

From the band’s earliest days, the members of Gloriana have always known that good things take time. The country trio first came together in 2008 when brothers Tom and Mike Gossin moved into Rachel Reinert’s Nashville apartment. Together they spent months in cramped quarters, surviving on Ramen Noodles while trying to shape their sound. “Gloriana are three people who have played music for their entire lives,” says Mike. “But we never really caught a break until coming together. Tom and I played in bars for 10 years, but it wasn’t until the three of us got together that we knew we had something special.”

It was a sound rooted deeply within the wild landscape of the Pacific North West – an atmosphere which still resonates strongly for Cornell. “The band is dripping with it”, he says. “that indescribable longing. It’s not about the society, it’s not about the people, it’s not about the city. It’s some other thing.

You and a guest will meet All Time Low when you attend the 2014 concert of your choice! To see tour dates, click HERE.

The members of All Time Low have always been very open about their formative musical influences: New Found Glory, Fall Out Boy, Green Day, Third Eye Blind and, of course, Blink-182. They’ve also been open about how their icons have inspired their previous albums—from the Saves The Day-esque pop-punk jams populating 2007’s So Wrong, It’s Right to the upbeat rockers on 2009’s Nothing Personaland the eclectic, ecstatic pop of 2011’s Dirty Work. But when it came time to make their fifth album, Don’t Panic, the band decided to look inward for inspiration.

For the band—which formed in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland, nearly a decade ago—making Don’t Panic was a much different experience than creating Dirty Work. First and foremost, the songs came together quicker: Gaskarth first brought musical ideas to his bandmates in fall 2011, and then put the finishing touches on them this past spring with Mike Green, who also produced multiple songs onDirty Work. Right away, the rest of All Time Low—lead guitarist Jack Barakat, bassist Zack Merrick and drummer Rian Dawson—could tell there was something special about this new music.

MEET COLT FORD & RECEIVE 2 ARTIST GUEST LIST TICKETS TO THE CONCERT OF YOUR CHOICE

Sweet Relief has a new item up on Charitybuzz. Please bid and help us raise money to assist career musicians facing illness, disability, or age-related problems

You and a guest will meet Colt Ford when you attend the concert of your choice! To see tour dates, click HERE.

The reason Colt Ford’s blending of country and rap feels so natural has everything to do with his background, both professional and personal. Just like his closest “hick-hop” competition, Cowboy Troy, Colt grew up listening to country — his first concert was Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton — along with R&B and hip-hop. When the Georgia native reached adulthood he began writing songs, eventually earning co-writing credits with Jamey Johnson, Jeremy Popoff, and the alternative rock band Lit. After a few years, the popular country music duo Montgomery Gentry became clients, then the urban side of Colt’s style was put to use when rapper Bone Crusher and urban superstar Jermaine Dupri came calling. He went from behind the scenes to up front in 2006 when he wrote “Buck ‘Em,” the theme for the Professional Bull Riders, Inc. In 2008 he released his debut album, Ride Through the Country, and went on tour with country music up-and-comer Brantley Gilbert. Chicken and Biscuits followed in 2010, with the impressive Every Chance I Get arriving in 2011. Ford by this time had created a larger than life hillbilly redneck public image, but he was also a sly, passionate, and multi-layered writer and businessman, and as a former drummer, he knew what to do in a recording studio. After starting his own label, Average Joe’s Records, Ford worked and toured outside the commercial Nashville umbrella, but he knew his way around the business, and he co-wrote songs with Nashville pros like Jeffrey Steele, Craig Wiseman, Rodney Clawson, and David Lee Murphy for his next project, Declaration of Independence, which appeared in 2012

You and a guest will meet The Beach Boys and receive 2 Artist Guest List tickets to an upcoming show of your choice! To see tour dates, click HERE.

You can capsulize most pop music acts by reciting how many hits they’ve had and how many millions of albums they’ve sold. But these conventional measurements fall short when you’re assessing the impact of The Beach Boys. To be sure, this band has birthed a torrent of hit singles and sold albums by the tens of millions. But its greater significance lies in the fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been in its debt.

Happily for us all, The Beach Boys continue to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that marked their explosive debut 50 years ago. In 2013, their 2003 Capitol Records release,Sounds of Summer (RIAA certified triple platinum with over two million in sales and climbing), and it’s 2007 companion The Warmth of the Sun marks a resurgence in Beach Boys interest that has again rocked the world.

In addition to founding Beach Boy Mike Love (lead vocals) and Beach Boy-vet Bruce Johnston (vocals/keyboards)–Christian Love (guitar/vocals), Randell Kirsch (bass/vocals), Tim Bonhomme (keyboards/vocals), John Cowsill of The Cowsills (percussion/vocals) and Scott Totten (guitar/vocals) round out the band.

You will also receive a Fender acoustic guitar signed to the name of your choice!

Folk-rock duo Tegan and Sara first burst onto the Canadian music scene in 1998, when they earned the highest score in history at Calgary’s “Garage Warz” competition; their quick rise didn’t stop, for their melodic acoustics and charming stage personas led to a slew of dates with Sarah McLachlan’s Lilith Fair that same year and a record deal with Neil Young’s Vapor Records in April 2000. Natives of Calgary, these twin sisters derived their music interests from their parents. Tegan and Sara began playing piano at age eight, and in their teens they were skanking around in their own punk bands. This Business of Art, which was produced by singer/songwriter Hawksley Workman, marked their debut in mid-2000, and a summer tour with Neil Young and the Pretenders followed in July. Two years later, Tegan and Sara released If It Was You, followed in 2004 by their commercial breakthrough, So Jealous. In 2005, the White Stripes released a popular cover of If It Was You’s “Walking with a Ghost.” That same year saw the duo touring the U.S. with the Killers and landing seven songs in the popular medical TV drama Grey’s Anatomy. In 2007, Tegan sang backup on a song on new Sire labelmate Against Me!’s album New Wave, and the twins, who had by then moved far from the singer/songwriter mold and were more interested in exploring pop, punk, and indie rock, came out with The Con, produced by Christopher Walla of Death Cab for Cutie. Working with Walla went well, and Tegan and Sara also utilized his production skills on their next album, 2009′s Sainthood. 2009 also found the duo collaborating with Tiësto on the song “Feel It in My Bones” for his album Kaleidoscope and with comedian Margaret Cho on the track “Intervention” from her Cho Dependent release. 2011′s live CD/DVD Get Along was paired with three short behind-the-scenes films called States, India, and For the Most Part. On their seventh studio album, the duo turned to producer Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, Kelly Clarkson, Ke$ha) for help in making an album that reflected the modern pop sound. The very slick, yet still emotionally powerful Heartthob was released in early 2013.

Sweet Relief has a new item up on Charitybuzz. Please bid and help us raise money to assist career musicians facing illness, disability, or age-related problems

Own this Celtic Football Club Soccer Ball that was signed by Rod Stewart!

Consequently this new collection from the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy Living Legend is a double landmark. It’s not just his first album of original material for nearly two decades; it also represents a concentrated burst of songwriting activity which is unprecedented in his five-decade career and signals the rediscovery of a gift that Stewart long since thought had deserted him.

The world knows Stewart to be a man of many facets: the fully paid-up, card-carrying rock star; the father of eight; the full-time curator of one of history’s most famous haircuts; the tireless Celtic fan; the extremely handy soccer player and provider, even now, of a devilishly in-swinging corner from the left-hand side.

The world also knows Stewart to be a songwriter – though not so much in recent years. True, in this area, Stewart has already logged more than his share of keepers – songs that will be around for as long as people listen to pop music. He is the lyricist and melodist behind such staples as ‘Tonight’s The Night’, ‘You Wear It Well’, ‘You’re In My Heart’, ‘The Killing of Georgie’ and the indelible ‘Maggie May’ – all of them miniature masterpieces of story-telling.

MEET PRIMUS & RECEIVE 2 ARTISTS GUEST LIST TICKETS TO A SHOW OF YOUR CHOICE PLUS BRING YOUR OWN BASS FOR LES CLAYPOOL TO SIGN

MEET PRIMUS & RECEIVE 2 ARTISTS GUEST LIST TICKETS TO A SHOW OF YOUR CHOICE PLUS BRING YOUR OWN BASS FOR LES CLAYPOOL TO SIGN

Sweet Relief has a new item up on Charitybuzz. Please bid and help us raise money to assist career musicians facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.

You and a guest will meet Primus and receive 2 Artist Guest List tickets to the show of your choice. You will also receive a signed poster and can bring your own bass guitar for Les Claypool to sign for you! To see tour dates, click HERE.

“Tommy the Cat.” “John the Fisherman.” “Jerry Was A Race Car Driver.” “My Name is Mud.” “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver.” Yessiree, Primus is responsible for some of the most cutting edge and original rock music of the 1990′s. And now, the definitive Primus line-up – singer/bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander – is back together and planning on getting the worldwide masses bobbing up and down in unison once more. Although originally formed in 1984, it was not until shortly before the end of the decade that the aforementioned classic line-up was solidified. With most hard rock/heavy metal acts at the time either neatly falling into either “thrash” or “glam” categories, Primus joined a variety of underground bands that refused to be pigeonholed (and by the early ’90s, had fully infiltrated the mainstream) – merging metal, funk, alternative, punk, country, roots rock, and experimental music, along with Claypool’s penchant for witty and often humorous storytelling lyrics.

Building a large and loyal following first in and around San Francisco (before eventually, going global), Primus kicked things off with a string of releases that are now considered classic alt-rock titles – 1989′s ‘Suck on This,’ 1990′s ‘Frizzle Fry,’ 1991′s ‘Sailing the Seas of Cheese,’ 1993′s ‘Pork Soda,’ and 1995′s ‘Tales from the Punchbowl.’ Along the way, Primus toured with some of rock’s biggest names (Jane’s Addiction, Public Enemy, Rush, U2, etc.), headlined the third-ever Lollapalooza Festival, and issued a variety of crafty music videos, which stood out in sharp contrast to the ultra-seriousness of most other video clips at the time.”
