Stevie Redstone’s never been one to slow things down, but taking a break from the road proved to be just what the hard-touring L.A. songwriter needed. The change of pace offered a chance to recharge and reflect, to experiment and explore, and it resulted in the creative windfall that led him to his spectacular debut, ‘Shot In The Dark.’ Recorded at Los Angeles’ Valentine Studios with producer Nic Jodoin (BlackRebel Motorcycle Club, Allah-Las), the album is an infectious slice of vintage gold, a retro-tinged collection that feels both classic and modern at once as it draws on everything from Motown and Stax to Britpop and Laurel Canyon. Redstone’s songs burst with larger-than-life horns, cinematic strings, and wall-of-sound production, tipping their cap to George Martin and Phil Spector in their outsized ambition while still managing to remain profoundly dynamic and intimate.
Obsessed with music from an early age, singer/songwriter Jackie Venson immersed herself in its study, attending the Berklee College of Music to practice classical piano. However, it wasn’t until she switched to the electric guitar, that her long-simmering passion for emotive live performance was realized. Abandoning the straight-laced world of classical for the raw power of blues and soul, Venson has since been tirelessly honing her skills into an intoxicating amalgam of Blues, Rock, R&B and Soul with deeply heartfelt lyrics. Having just released her latest studio album “Joy”, Venson is in the midst of her global “Joy to the World” tour, which will see her playing shows all the way from Alaska to Austria and back!
