George Winston Releases New Track “Medley: Muskrat Ramble / I Feel Like I’m Fixin’ To Die Rag / Stop The Bleeding”

Chelou Shares ‘Out Of Sight’ LP Via Concrete Dog, Announces US Tour Dates

If the Chelou sound is a blissful brand of melancholy it’s rooted as much in the 21st century.

Lisa was amazing to work with and was so open to our ideas.” The admiration is clearly mutual. Loeb adds, “When Walk Off The Earth reached out to me about wanting to come up with their own version of ‘Stay (I Missed You),’ I was thrilled, as I’ve been a fan of the mind-blowing arrangements I’ve seen and heard from them. They came up with a take on the song that’s unlike anything I could have come up with on my own.”

new Anja Kotar remix

Quote from Anja Kotar: “I was so excited to connect with BEAUZ for this remix as I’ve been a fan of their music for quite some time now! It was really eye opening to give the song into someone else’s hands and let them present it with their own vision and style. I absolutely love the end product: I like to say it’s ‘Kids’, but if you played it on a beach at sunset. :) ”
