Ellie Goulding Brightest Blue Tour

Elle Goulding is an Artist I want to produce a record with. Here is a one for my UK Friends I don’t want you to miss this tour. If you need inspiration watch “Fifty Shades of Gray” haha

Ellie Goulding put the climate crisis center stage last night as she triumphantly returned to the stage to kick off her UK tour in Glasgow.  “The Brightest Blue UK Tour” – named after Ellie’s latest critically acclaimed album – breaks new ground in “greening” the live music industry, paving the way for other artists to make the same demands on promoters and venues to address the impact of the industry. Tickets for “The Brightest Blue UK Tour” are available now here.

The intimate tour, which continues to visit London, Birmingham, Manchester, Bournemouth and Newcastle sees Ellie perform a career spanning setlist, performing many tracks from Brightest Blue for the first time, set among urgent, vital messages – adding extra meaning to many of Goulding’s most famous hits.

Lighting designer, Cate Carter has also brought Ellie’s thoughts and feelings on the climate and nature emergency to a stunning backdrop. Last night’s show closed with a roll call of names of global youth climate leaders working tirelessly to hold global leaders to account. “Today’s youth climate leaders are my heroes. Without them and their actions I don’t think we would have a chance of success at COP26. We need to listen to them. I want to take every opportunity to amplify what they are doing,” says Ellie.

As a UN environment ambassador and official COP26 advocate, Ellie is known speaking up for the planet. Ellie’s tour tackles the industry’s notoriously large carbon footprint and high impact and scaling down to levels compatible with the Paris Treaty.

“My young fans in particular are very worried about the climate crisis and this about me stepping up for them and their collective future,” says Ellie Goulding, “Backstage my team has worked tirelessly to address all our impacts and I hope others will follow. There’s such an opportunity to move my industry towards net zero because we touch on so many different areas. We should be doing every damned thing to transition to a clean, green industry and we have to do it right now when we have a tiny window to keep 1.5 degrees (of global temperature rise) alive.”

While the singer delighted fans with her high energy performance, behind the scenes at the Glasgow O2 Academy the whole tour had been engineered to be as low impact as possible but still deliver a stunning visual and sonic performance.

Jane Deady one of the UK’s most experienced tour managers described the protocols rolled out at Ellie Goulding’s Glasgow gig – which range from powering the whole show on renewables to a plastic free backstage as a “gamechanger.” “Most of the green riders so far are directed towards massive stadium setups, but we want to support quirky UK venues coming out of the pandemic, so we’ve had to create New green plan and that needed collaboration and fresh thinking,” says Jane Deady.

Ellie and her tour team have worked with Lucy Augusta Perna, global sustainability director for Live Nation Entertainment, to adapt the organization’s Green Nation Touring Program for the Ellie Goulding tour. 

Alongside Sir David Attenborough and Jane Goodall, UN environment ambassador, Ellie is an official advocate for COP26. At COP26 Ellie will return to Glasgow in order to take part in a number of official events for the UNFCCC and fringe events along with Arctic Basecamp and One Young World. “We need to be the generation to halt the climate crisis and restore nature. The only way to do that is to start right now,” she says.

Worst Music Video of the Year

Published

The Lumineers share video for “BIG SHOT,” fourth studio album ‘BRIGHTSIDE’ arrives on 1/14/22

“Big Shot” has to be the worst music video I have seen in years. You have a beautiful “Big Shot” that is destroyed by going into a liquor store and kids stealing stuff and the finale of robbery. WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING GUYS?

The Lumineers have announced the release of their second single “BIG SHOT,” featured on their eagerly awaited new album, BRIGHTSIDE. The track is joined by an official music video, streaming now at YouTube. BRIGHTSIDE arrives Friday, January 14, 2022, via Dualtone in the U.S. & Canada and Decca Records for the rest of the world; pre-orders are available now HERE. “We are all big shots in our own story,” says The Lumineers singer-guitarist and co-founder Wesley Schultz, “and, now, we’ve all been humbled over the last 18 months. The video was inspired by the 90s, and the storytelling music videos we grew up watching on MTV.

LAUNDRY DAY makes Warner debut with new single “Connect 5”

Connect 5 on Warner Brothers

Well I am backed up with laundry and need soap, quarters and hit single from Connect 5 – Laundry Day.

LAUNDRY DAY shares its brand new single “Connect 5.” Arriving just one year after the band’s high school graduation and following standout festival performances at Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, and Firefly Music Festival this past summer, the new track marks their official debut on Warner Records.

About the single, the band commented, “‘Connect 5’ was a song that kind of came right in the middle of the album writing process. This had been the longest time we’d ever spent making an album, and we still had a long way to go. It came at a time where we needed to be reminded to rely on each other and support one another. I think this is reflected in the lyrics and production work throughout the song. It feels like every member gave a piece of themselves to the track in order to ‘make this work’.”

All before even graduating from Beacon High School in Manhattan during June 2020, LAUNDRY DAY sold out shows at iconic venues such as The Bowery Ballroom and The Roxy, canvassed the U.S. and Europe on tour – including runs with The 1975 and Clairo – and earned support from the likes of The FADER, NME, Pigeons & Planes, and i-D who raved, “LAUNDRY DAY is reinventing the teen boy band,”as well as HYPEBEAST who named them among Best Music Artists on the Come Up.” They recorded their 2019 album HOMESICK with producer Romil Hemnani [BROCKHAMPTON] at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La Studios in Malibu. Of the latter, Lyrical Lemonade attested, “HOMESICK illustrates the galvanizing energy of a young group with the prowess and skill, both technical and intuitively, of a bunch of veterans, all without skipping a beat.” In 2021, they reteamed with Romil and BROCKHAMPTON’s Kevin Abstract, the production duo Video Store, to cultivate their next evolution in the studio. Additionally, they welcomed legendary producer Brendan O’Brien [Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers] into the fold to truly shock their vision to life. Listen to “Connect 5” above and stay tuned for more from LAUNDRY DAY coming soon.

A Former Member Of Lynyrd Skynyrd Mark The 44th Anniversary Of The Tragic Plane Crash

ormer Member Of Lynyrd Skynyrd Mark The 44th Anniversary Of The Tragic Plane Crash

While I was a young kid working in radio I remember the day the music died when Ronnie Van Zant died. All you could hear on the radio was Sweet Home Alabama.

Los Angeles, CA – 44 years ago this month, the music world endured one of the greatest tragedies in its history when a Convair CV-240 passenger plane carrying several members of Southern Rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, including founding member and vocalist Ronnie Van Zant, crashed into the woods near Gillsburg, MS, killing 6 including Van Zant. The event has been memorialized in both songs as well as in the hearts and minds of music fans the world over. Most recently, this singularly devastating accident was dramatized on film in a full-length feature Street Survivors: The True Story Of The Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash. Told from the perspective of Skynyrd drummer, Artimus Pyle, who not only survived the crash but helped rescue other members from the wreckage, the movie is a powerful testament to the enduring legacy of Lynyrd Skynyrd and all that the band had to overcome in its incredible career. The accompanying soundtrack to the film converts the inspiring true story into musical form, taking selections of the film’s orchestral score and blending it with original music inspired by Skynyrd with guest appearances by Pyle as well as blues rock legend Pat Travers.

Pyle had this to say on the anniversary of the tragedy: “We all live, and we all die. It’s how you live your life that matters. Ronnie lived a large life in a small amount of time. I am happy to be included in his legacy. Everyone that participated in the making of the film, including director Jared Cohn and the cast, should be applauded. My sons, our band, the APB band and our friends who wrote the movie soundtrack; I think it’s an award-winning effort. Check it out. On October 20, don’t be sad…be happy and revel in Ronnie Van Zant’s Lynyrd Skynyrd music that will live forever! Peace and Love!”
