New fan-financed album by veteran rocker
and “songwriter’s songwriter”
coming on April 30 — with or without a label!

NEW YORK, N.Y. — When Willie Nile recently sought help in underwriting his new album American Ride — out on April 30, 2013 on his own River House Records — with a fundraising campaign on pledgemusic.com, his fans turned out in huge numbers, reaching his goal amount in a mere four days and ultimately exceeding it.

Anyone who’s familiar with the New York-bred singer-songwriter’s large and impressive body of work will have no trouble understanding why he commands such devotion and loyalty from his fan base. And anyone who’s paid attention to his recent output knows that Nile is currently in the midst of a creative renaissance that’s produced some of the most compelling music he’s ever made.

Gospel Jazz Artist & Label Owner Terrence Richburg Celebrates The Holidays With New Track ‘In One Night’

New York, NY – Christmas time is the perfect time to sit around the tree and ring in the holiday season. Gospel Jazz artist, producer and songwriter Terrence Richburg has penned a new Christmas tune called “In One Night”.

The original track, written by the owner of the Stellar Award-nominated, RichEscape Music, LLC, is a jazzy yet classically-infused ballad about the Savior’s birth. The single is available in four versions: the original track with vocals, an instrumental version (showcasing an exceptional acoustic guitar and 7-string bass performance by Richburg) and a radio edit for each. Richburg’s first release in several years not only features the smooth styling his fans are accustomed to, but it introduces the vocal talents of Gospel Jazz singer Kathy Rowley Olatunde. The vocalist is already receiving kudos for her performance on “In One Night”.
