Ready for the new song to drop?!

IK Multimedia is proud to unveil “Joe Satriani’s AmpliTube Shifting Song,” an original song written and recorded by Joe that offers a unique retrospective of the many aspirational tones that span his full career. To listen, visit: https://www.ikmultimedia.com/news/?id=joesatrianiexclusivesong.

“I had so much fun exploring my legacy tones and techniques on this musical trip down memory lane. It was all done with IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube Joe Satriani Collection software suite!

I dug deep into my collection’s presets as well as AmpliTube’s enormous selection of sonic options to create a series of musical vignettes, all tied together with a deep groove and a decided nod to a few of my well-known songs."

Posted @withregram • @nivassoc It's paralyzing. It's gut-wrenching. It's devestating. Without federal funding, in 13 weeks there may be only one independent music venue left standing in Nashville. This is an extinction level event. We need Congress to take action and we need it NOW. #SaveOurStage #RESTARTact #DoNotAbandonUS

Posted @withregram • @nito_live To our amazing supporters: Thousands of you have spoken out to help the passage of #SaveOurStages and #RESTARTAmerica Acts. You’ve also been vocal about #HITSAct and #ExtendPUA and used your collective voice to make sure our elected officials #DoNotAbandonUs - and Congress IS listening.

Now, we want to make sure you can use that powerful voice to speak out at the voting booth. While we reflect on the life and activism of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, we are reminded that tomorrow - Tuesday, September 22nd - is #NationalVoterRegistrationDay. Please check your voter registration status and, if you’re not currently registered, please register to vote. We've teamed up with @HeadCountOrg to provide all the resources you need.

Make sure you're #VoteReady at headcount.org/NITO

The politicians will only listen if our communities demand to be heard by our votes. Let’s make it known that we can’t be ignored, and will not be abandoned... We WILL vote!

We have refined and communicated to our representatives our individual needs, but we recognize the interconnectedness of our industries and the need for legislative help. Together, we urgently demand action by way of a comprehensive pandemic relief bill. Congress, please #DoNotAbandonUS.

🎤🔊Posted @withregram • @nito_live "The existence of independent venues is vital to the continued growth of multi-genre musical diversity. Local underground music scenes flourish in the independent venues. These artists and their fans found their first home in the independent venues, who are seemingly more willing to take risks when it comes to booking young, boundary-pushing artists. They are also the first to take calls from independent agents who represent many of these artists, forming a very integral symbiotic relationship in the realm of live touring." —NITO founding member Stormy Shepherd of @LeaveHomeBooking.

We'd like to thank @MarissaRMoss and @NPR for keeping their foot on the gas and highlighting the situation that our country's most treasured music venues -- and all of those who rely on them -- find themselves in due to the pandemic.

Join us in continuing to ask Congress to include #RESTARTAmerica, #SaveOurStages, and #HITSAct in upcoming COVID-19 relief bills - link in bio. 📣

Posted @withregram • @nito_live “It takes time to ramp up. Even if venues open in May or June next year, managers and agencies may not see any income until mid-summer, and that’s optimistic.” —NITO founding member Stormy Shepherd of @LeaveHomeBooking.

“There’s a whole ecosystem of jobs and titles and people who are affected by this. Touring doesn’t work until venues are at capacity, which is going to take months. If venues start to leave, it will be a disaster.” —NITO founding member Tom Chauncey of @PartisanArts.

“This is a genuine threat to the existence of independent music. Not just venues, but everyone. You take that out, and you lose a whole generation of music.” —NITO founding member Frank Riley of @HighRoadTouring.

Sending a big thank you to August Brown of @LATimes / @LATimes_Entertainment for keeping the spotlight on how hard independent venues and talent agencies have been hit during the pandemic, and the long road we face in returning safely and profitably.
