On the eve of the release of his third solo album, Rich Robinson, best known as the guitarist, songwriter, and founder of The Black Crowes, stands ready to complete the solo artist evolution that he began ten years earlier. The Ceaseless Sight, due out in June 2014, is an album that represents the full maturation of Rich as a songwriter, a vocalist, and a solo artist.

 

Robinson was born in 1969 and formed the The Black Crowes with his older brother Chris in Atlanta in the 1980’s. At the age of 17, Robinson began writing the music for the songs that would land on the band’s 1990 debut album, Shake Your Money Maker, which sold 7 million copies. Over the next 10 years, Rich’s songwriting evolved into the musical engine that powered the band to sales of more than 25 million albums. Before taking a hiatus in 2001, the Crowes catalog included classics like The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, Amorica, By Your Side, and Live at the Greek: Excess All Areas, a double album that captured the teaming of Jimmy Page and The Black Crowes for performances of Led Zeppelin, Crowes and blues and rock standards.

 

The Crowes went on hiatus in 2001 and in 2004 Rich began his solo journey with the release of his first album, Paper. The record was largely an extension of Rich’s musicianship as a Black Crowe showcasing his stellar and under-rated guitar playing and, for the first time, Rich took on the role of lyricist and lead vocalist. Paste Magazine: “Rich Robinson brings back not only roots-rock accessibility, but the complexity and originality that transformed the Black Crowes into a band that mattered. Paper is filled with beautiful melodies and harmonies, creative guitar work, fitting instrumentation and, most of all, excellent songwriting.”

 

It would be seven years before his second solo album, Through A Crooked Sun, and an accompanying EP, Llama Blues, were released as the Crowes reunited in 2005 and were actively recording and touring until their second hiatus in 2010. Crooked Sun, a far more personal album than his first, was a collection of 12 songs that expressed the increasing spiritual and political awareness that Rich’s life had taken. Recorded in Woodstock in 2011, the album featured Joe Magistro, Steve Molitz and guest performances by Warren Haynes, Larry Campbell, Karl Berger, John Lindberg, and John Medeski. PopMatters: “A solo artist worth taking seriously…It’s why this is such a significant solo album—even at their most melodic, the Crowes are simply too brash and energetic to ever be this delicate. By stepping out of the Crowes’ comfort zone, Robinson proves that he’s more than a gifted instrumentalist. Robinson has developed a writing style that is indeed reminiscent of the Crowes but also encompasses levels of emotional intricacy that the Crowes, for all their power, are sometimes incapable of reaching.”

 

A worldwide Black Crowes tour kept Robinson busy in 2013, but he found the time to return to Woodstock to record The Ceaseless Sight. The album finds Robinson stepping solidly into his own as a solo artist as he adds confident vocalist and lyricist to his accomplished musical resume. The Ceaseless Sight will be released on June 3rd 2014 and the Rich Robinson Band will tour through the year in support of its new Album “Ceaseless Sight”

 

 

  of Rolling Stone Magazine
June 16, 2014

 

As a solo artist, Rich Robinson, the guitar-playing brother in the Black Crowes, has been a gathering storm, closing in on a lyrically spiritual, musically earthy balance of electric-blues bravado, psychedelic-country exploration and almost courtly vocal cool. The Ceaseless Sight, his third effort, is the bull’s-eye, so rich in textures and assured in the writing that it sounds like a true debut. As the sole guitarist, Robinson scores the layered grind of “I Know You” and “The Unfortunate Show” as if Ry Cooder, Ron Wood and Fleetwood Mac‘s Danny Kirwan all walked into the same song. But Robinson’s wild card is his singing, a clear, earnest vigor that counters the dark brawn of “In Comes the Night” with hopeful light.

According to Billboard, this is Robinson’s first release on the independent label, which already features an eclectic array of artists: indie-rockers Art Brut, metal band Cradle of Filth and more.

“[The End founder] Andreas Katsambas is a longtime music fan and has some very forward ideas on how to get music out there, but more importantly for me, how to allow the artist to create pure music without the inevitable commercial vs. art clash that comes from a more traditional approach,” Robinson told Billboard. “All of Andreas’ team shares these qualities. It’s going to be great.”

Robinson co-founded the Black Crowes in Atlanta, Georgia back in 1989. In 2010, the band released their most recent album, Croweology, a double-disc set of rerecorded acoustic tracks; after that, then entered an “indefinite hiatus” until this year’s world tour, dubbed “Lay Down With Number 13,” which will wrap up on December 14th with a show in San Francisco, California. Robinson will hit the road again in 2014 with a national tour to promote The Ceaseless Sight.

Hollis Brown

 

Hollis Brown was started in Queens, New York City in 2009 by college friends and songwriting partners Jon Bonilla and Mike Montali. Upon writing over fifty songs together, they decided to take things to the next level and form a band. After a self-released demo, they were signed to Alive Natural Sound, releasing their debut “Ride On The Train” in March 2013. Critical acclaim soon followed as Rolling Stone, Spin, and American Songwriter all premiered material from the album. On April 19, 2014, they released an exclusive Record Store Day tribute to The Velvet Underground.

PRESS:
Hollis Brown make music that sounds just as alive today as it would’ve in 1966 and will 40 years from now. – SPIN

Through this consistently impressive first long player, Hollis Brown have carved out their own space with a set of timeless, rustic and eminently tuneful and soulful sounds. – SHINDIG!

It’s easy to see how Hollis Brown’s sound could be as relevant years down the road as it is today. – PASTE

Packed to the brim with sterling songs that measure up to those covers they’re so fond of playing live. – KUT RADIO /AUSTIN

Their well-crafted songs are rooted in the blues and feature pop hooks that sink in and don’t let go. – CMT

“Ride On The Train” is the group’s debut full-length album, and it’s a gem, full of memorable songs and a sharp, taut sound that only includes what is necessary to put the song over. – ALL MUSIC

Everything you’d expect from a band named after a Bob Dylan tune, mixing Americana and Bible Belt blues with a heavy dose of no-frills Southern rock. – AMERICAN SONGWRITER

A bracing mixture of something akin to blues-based Southern rock and pure British Invasion-influenced pop. – WHEN YOU MOTOR AWAY

Like a refined version of the late ’60s era rock and roll that sort of trembles into ’70s rock / folk /country territory. – MUSIC SAVAGE

“Ride On The Train” is an album that a lot of people are going to love for its multi-generational appeal. But besides that, it’s just good rock music. It’s hard to peg a specific sound on it. There are no “skip” songs on this album though. Be prepared to keep it in your player, on repeat, for a long time. – EAR TO THE GROUND

A remarkable debut from a band that shows a lot of promise. – PENNY BLACK MUSIC

Their debut is something to behold. – HEAR YA

Hollis Brown conjures a dozen things I’ve liked or loved from the last 30 years. But it sounds exactly like no one else. – BLURT

A band that’s a little bit classic pop, a little bit Americana and a whole lot of sweet rock n’ roll. – PULSE MAGAZINE

One of the most promising bands in the region “Ordinary Fools” opens the night fueled by their love of the Blues,Jazz,and Modern Rock “Ordinary Fools” has become one of the next great Kentucky Bands.

The Whigs return to Summit City on August-9th!

July 6th, 2014

For their fifth album, the Athens-bred/Nashville-based power trio the Whigs wanted to find the exact midpoint between raw and rehearsed. After more than a decade together—during which they’ve released four critically lauded studio albums and toured constantly as either headliners or openers for the likes of the Drive-By Truckers, Kings of Leon, and MGMT—the three members all agreed that they wanted to flex their muscles a bit: write some good songs, get them down as tight as possible, hit <RECORD>

My new record follows the path of my musical journey I’ve been on for 25 years. I feel a strong connection to where I’ve been musically, but more importantly where I’m going.”

Hello friends, neighbors…, Summit Citizens

December 18th, 2012
I hope this message finds you well during this holiday season.

We are making some exciting changes here at Summit City and we just wanted to feel everyone in on the changes as we move toward this transition. A brief overview…

As many of you know, our new kitchen is almost complete and we are excited about the increased food options this will allow us to prepare. Along with the new kitchen we will be adding a full time cook. This will allow us more options on the type of food we can prepare and also allow food to be served more quickly and efficiently.
An Anna Bogle enhanced menu! Anna has been working on updating the menu and it should be out by the first of the year. Included in this upgrade will be a Saturday brunch menu with exciting food and drink options. Mmmm…. bloody mary…!
In addition to enhancing the menu at Summit City Anna will also be taking over the leadership role as manager of operations. Our wonderful friend Heather Bates is taking on a new role at another company in downtown (yay!) and we are excited for her to move on to greener pastures. We are also so excited about the prospects of Anna’s leadership and the vision she will have for Summit City.
We will begin table service in the New Year. Along with the full time cook we will also have a full time server at all times. Table service will apply to all seating areas (inside and on the deck). Less time chasing food and drinks, more time relaxing!
Tap beer! Now doesn’t that just sound (taste) great! That’s right, it’s in, and we have eight options of fresh beer. One for each day of the week (just trust me on that). Come early and often to see the rotating options!
As of today (December 11, 2012), we will begin opening at 4pm, Tuesday through Friday and 11am on Saturdays (for Brunch). The reason for this is two-fold. One, we want to concentrate our efforts on our evening and brunch dining experience and to perfect these to the nth degree. Summit City has always been and will always be a place for gathering together and celebrating our community. We will still have great times. We will still have great food, amazing drinks and outstanding music and art. We want everything to be perfect and we feel by becoming more specialized we can better achieve this. The second reason is that we are welcoming a new business into downtown Whitesburg! A bakery, Here Comes the Bun, is set to open in the coming weeks and we are very, very excited to have them as partners here in Whitesburg. Here Comes the Bun has created a beautiful space and is set to serve both breakfast and lunch. So along with allowing us to become more specialized, our move will also help ensure the vitality of another business in our downtown. We feel it’s a win-win!
So yes, new and exciting things! We are very excited about the future of not only Summit City, but Whitesburg. We feel that town is moving in a very positive direction and we’re very excited to be a part of it. We hope you are also!

Onward and Upward!

Team Summit City
