Tyler and The Tribe on Live From the Backroom

TNTT

He’s one of those “Good ol’ Boys” that likes to Rock ‘n’ Roll!  That’s what people could say about every member of the Tribe.  From counties that have a higher population of cows than people, members Heath Robinson, Jordan Owens, Tyler Jones and Colton Joe Smith lived the slow sizzle of life in the country growing up.  “You learn that throwing rocks at signs with a couple of buddies can be fun and sitting on a tailgate at night talking with a friend can’t be beat,” says Jones.  Or in the case of Tyler and the Tribe, sitting in a studio late at night.  This fantastic foursome found themselves recording on a project deep into East Texas nights at Jones’ house soon after they met.  After becoming friends, the rest is history and history looks a lot like good music.

The 2012 release “Rock On” took months to record but the band found it’s chemistry in the process.  “For Heath and I, the chemistry was there.  We’ve been in lots of bands and projects together so everything is just very natural.” Owens says of his friend.  Robinson claims, “It took a few jam-sessions to learn where everybody wanted to go as a whole.”  The album speaks for itself though and shows that the band definitely found it’s groove.   Late night recording sessions turned into late night show rehearsals as the guys quickly hit the road to play live all across multiple states in the region.

Fast forward less than thirteen months and the guys have re-entered the studio with a dozen new songs.  “It spans the boundaries of rock all the way to country music and everything in between.”  Says Smith.  World-class producer CJ Eiriksson led the month-long charge of capturing the Tribe’s electric vibes between the band’s touring schedule.   Smith continues, “We want people to feel love from this album.  We want it to be a positive influence everyday for our fans.”

The band still enjoys coming off of the road to the country life to unwind from time to time.  Back to the place where they learned hard work can pay off.  The place where good people become friends.  The place that Tyler and the Tribe was “BORN”.

SUNNY SWEENEY RETURNS WITH A VENGEANCE ON NEW ALBUM, PROVOKED
Sunny
Third Studio Album Hit The Shelves on August 5
NASHVILLE, Tenn.  – Sunny Sweeney is ready to talk, or rather sing, about it all – the good, the bad, and the ugly—on her new album PROVOKED, a 13-song sampling from the songstress American Songwriter raves as “a modern country music singer with a retro streak.” After her first two albums, Heartbreaker’s Hall of Fame and Concrete, this critically acclaimed Texas honky-tonker isn’t about to play coy now. Sweeney has teamed up with Thirty Tigers to release her third album on August 5, 2014.
“The album is a journey from nearly hitting bottom and losing everything personally to regaining my footing and being able to find not only my true self again, but real happiness,” Sweeney reveals.
The Texas native who is known for her honest, first-hand accounts comes to this album with new perspectives yet the same honest grit, resulting in new refreshing and vulnerable stories to tell.  “My fans recognize that this is something different, and they recognize that I’m writing about the truth. They’ve been through a lot with me, and they’ve seen me in both good places and bad, and the feedback I’m getting from them now is that they feel like this is the real me again.
The album embodies the same mix of toughness and vulnerability that appealed to so many fans of Sweeney’s first two albums, but with an added level of tested-by-fire resilience that deepens the music’s emotional resonance. The songs range from the heart-on-sleeve honesty of “My Bed,” “Uninvited” and “Sunday Dress” to the raucous barroom rave-ups of “You Don’t Know Your Husband” and “Everybody Else Can,” and follow Sweeney’s turbulent and unabashedly personal roller coaster ride from reckless abandon (“Bad Girl Phase”; co-written by Brandy Clark) to yearning (“Find Me”) to candid self-reflection (“Second Guessing”) to the bittersweet defeat (“Carolina on the Line”) to, finally, the healing embrace of happiness (“Used Cars”).
“I have been unbelievably blessed in my life, and I know that I owe a lot of that to my upbringing to the Northeast Texas community—a place I’m proud to call home. I hope that others will be inspired, or rather invoked, to also pay it forward.”
