Tearing by Peter Searcy

We are obviously big Peter Searcy fans here. Peter has released a new tune very topical for our current world situation. For those who know Peter for his ear catching guitar hooks, you may not realize how accomplished he is on his first instrument, cello. You can hear a taste of that in this song. Watch and listen to the video for the poignancy of the lyrics.

RAH

Check out this video clip from jazz/funk improvisation trio RAH - Mark Ross on keys, William Hollifield on sax, and Kent Aberle on drums. The tune, "fish'er price", is from their live album "Live From The Roof" recorded on the roof of Hotel Clermont in Atlanta, GA on 8.11.2019. The entire thing is improvised from start to finish!

We had a great conversation with Kent about RAH that we will update and get out soon. In the meantime, put on some headphones and watch this!

Hop on stage with RAH! Immerse yourself in this 360 video of our tune "fish'er price" from the live album "Live From The Roof" recorded on the roof of Hotel Clermont in Atlanta, GA on 8.11.2019. We know many of us are stuck inside right now. Please be safe and use this time to create. We look forward to performing live for you again soon. Enjoy!

Hey folks –

The Grapevine has been on an unintentional hiatus. We have some stories half in the can and a backlog of many more.

Our thoughts go out to our many Atlanta area musician and music business friends who have had their livelihoods impacted by the current quarantine. We are also impressed with the immediate resiliency of these folks in seeking creative ways to stay connected to their fans and music friends. This has been an inspiration for us to get back into action.

While we all try out new methods to experience music, Atlanta Music Grapevine would like to help you get out the word. Just yesterday we luckily stumbled upon an impromptu Instagram “couch show.” There are many other such performances that are popping up spontaneously. Let’s not miss out on them!

If you are planning a live stream event, let us be a part of spreading the news. Share the date and time, the social media platform, and importantly – your method by which fans can send contributions and tips, e.g. Venmo, PayPal, Cash App, and the like.

Are you selling and shipping merch -albums, CDs, t-shirts, stickers, signed glossies, etc? Give us the information on how people can order and pay for items.

If you or your music business are working on other novel services and offerings, let us know. Our purpose is to support local music, please let us know how we can help.

Stay safe and thank you for your art.

Some shots of the good time we had at week 1 of The Original Series at Rock-N-Taco in Roswell. Week 2 is Tuesday Feb 11 at 7:00PM. Going to be awesome to hear a wide variety of performers sharing their original songs!

Had the pleasure to catch up over coffee with Papa Jack Couch as he was hand delivering new vinyl copies of his latest record 'Witness Tree'. Papa Jack has a show at Eddie's Attic December 27 where he also hosts a farewell for singer Lexi Street, who is moving out of Atlanta. December 27 - post Christmas and pre New Year's - is a great time to check him out with his full band. Also listen to 'Witness Tree' via your favorite music service - OR ON VINYL - and read about it in Atlanta Music Grapevine.

Mike Killeen’s ‘Ghost’: No Busters Needed Here - Atlanta Music Grapevine

Mike Killeen’s ‘Ghost’ is one of our favorite Atlanta artist releases of this year. When it was released some months ago, it caught us off guard that so many catchy tunes were packed into one album! As Mike is now playing several shows across the metro area, we thought it a good time to shine some more light on this delightful, deserving record. Read about it in Atlanta Music Grapevine then follow the link below to stream ‘Ghost’ via your favorite music service.

Finally got to check out the new Rock n Taco Roswell in historic Roswell. What a great vibe! Plus, our favorite inventive tacos are now bolstered by new mobile ordering tech that makes service super fast and efficient. So glad our good friend Shane Denmark, the heart and soul behind The Original Series (@originalseriesatl), is part of the team growing the concept and vision. We are looking forward to catching some original live music there very soon! Check them out when you are in Roswell!

John Driskell Hopkins, Mike Rizzi and the Strong Personalities, & Navajo Joe Tickets - Dixie Tavern - Marietta, GA - Saturday, November 16, 2019 — 8:00 pm

We have had the honor and pleasure to feature both John Driskell Hopkins and Mike Rizzi in our pages. We love what they do and consider them Grapevine family. So, of course, we must shout out that both are performing together with their respective full bands: The John Driskell Hopkins Band and Mike Rizzi & The Strong Personalities!! NOVEMBER 16!

As both have spent much time out on the road as of late, it is a rare treat to get either one of the groups in town, much less both! Plus, it is at Dixie Tavern, one of the best places locally to see music, with its stage that puts the music first. And it is a(n) S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y night! Click below for tickets.

Artist To Artist: Andy Browne & James Hall - Atlanta Music Grapevine

Have you ever wondered what musicians talk about when they are just chatting? Or the burning questions one artist might have for one of their favorite artists? We have too, and so are happy to introduce our new feature called “Artist To Artist.” We will be featuring local Atlanta music scene insiders – artist, producers, music service people, and more – having conversations with other Atlanta music people they admire and enjoy. This “fly on the wall” perspective presents an exchange that is congenial and interesting with minimal editing. As we were considering this feature, Andy Browne, of the Andy Browne Troupe had a similar idea and so we asked him to kick off the series. Andy, who is garnering fans and acclaim for his inventive, often eclectic storytelling and musical arrangements is speaking with James Hall.

Artist Spotlight: Papa Jack Couch - More Than Once Bitten, Not Shy - Atlanta Music Grapevine

After a very long hiatus, Atlanta Music Grapevine is back with an Artist Spotlight story featuring Papa Jack Couch. Papa Jack’s music career makes for a great tale. He also has a new record, 'Witness Tree', full of open, honest, heartfelt tunes, recorded with many of the same players as on his 2018 release, 'Meriwether'. Papa Jack & The Standard Electric Irregulars host a listening party tomorrow August 15 at Eddie's Attic where they will share some of the new songs in advance of the record's release in September. Link for tickets is in the story. Check it out!

East Atlanta is an enclave for diverse food and live music. Can the neighborhood stay true to itself in the face of gentrification and condo-culture?

We have mentioned the uber-multitalented @johndriskellhopkins, who may be sharing some upcoming catchy new tunes tonight at @citywineryatl joined by his musical ace friends @rizzidrum and @bbisky. But do yourself a huge favor and be in your seats to see Peter Searcy. Peter alone - solo, with a band,...even Peter singing karaoke - is worth your getting to Ponce City Market tonight. Great venue to hear and appreciate the nuanced talent of all these guys tonight. Mondays are easy. Start the week right tonight.

Hello everyone. I'm new to the Atlanta area and I'm looking for music gigs. I play guitar and sing. I do mostly covers but also have some original music. I had some gigs back in my hometown but I'm having a hard time getting information on good places to perform here in Atlanta. Any information to help get me started here would be greatly appreciated.
This is Great, I think there is nothing like HOME GROWN TALENT!!!
