For the stunning new video Grace once again enlisted the help of director Alex Lightman and creative director Edwin Burdis [Arctic Monkeys, Wild Beasts, Franz Ferdinand, Alexis Taylor] who worked alongside Lightman to create the striking visual.

Elliott Murphy, legendary rock troubadour and a true pioneer of independent recording artists has finally published his long-awaited memoir, JUST A STORY FROM AMERICA. This rock and roll storyteller, who has been cited by artists as inspirational as Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and the late Lou Reed, and whose career now spans nearly five decades, was promoted by Columbia Records in 1977 with a full-page ad in Rolling Stone reading, “He could write a book, but he chose rock and roll instead.” The truth is that he has been doing both for years and in the process achieving international success and acclaim. Finally, his amazing story is told.

In 1973 posters were plastered all over New York City’s subway system proclaiming, “Elliott Murphy is going to be a monster,” when his critically-praised debut album, AQUASHOW, was first released. Perhaps his major label career didn’t take off as predicted, but his unique journey did include him becoming a rock star monster, before ultimately finding redemption in Paris, France with a thriving career, loving family and a trove of rock ‘n roll anecdotes and wisdom to fill this unforgettable and highly readable memoir.

Atlanta’s Holy Beach Share New Single “It’s The Fear”

When Atlanta-based rock band Holy Beach play, they send lightning bolts of energy hurtling through the ether to either fizzle or explode. Formed early this year, Holy Beach are not making any dainty debuts — they’re making an anthemic antithesis to the serpentine soundscape of post-rock, shooting out fast from the starting line. Their first full-length record, ​All That Matters Is This Matter​, releasing this summer and co-produced by platinum award winning engineer Jeff Leonard Jr. (who has worked with bands including Shinedown, Sleeper Agent, and Framing Hanley), is rich with the guzzled, cloudy waves of grunge interspersed with smashes of raging rock. The album marks the first official effort from Holy Beach, but its members are no strangers to the industry.
