Portugal The Man – Chris Black Changed My Life (Indie Exclusive)
Portugal the Man are back after a brief hiatus with a new record titled Chris Black Changed My Life, the follow up to their global hit record Woodstock. Chris Black Changed My Life is a personal story about the loss of a friend and the struggle that comes with it and ultimately ends with power and endless influence those people will have on your life.
Albert Hammond Jr. – Melodies On Hiatus
Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. is the lead & rhythm guitarist and songwriting member The Strokes. Albert teamed up with his writing partner, Canadian songwriter, and poet Simon Wilcox (whom he never met during the process) and had lengthy conversations via the telephone; Simon would jot down notes from Albert’s stream of consciousness, and draft the lyrics on her typewriter.
See you soon!
