“Gratitude and joy, gruffness and beauty balance each other perfectly in singing that has grown more rhythmically acute with each passing year.” (The New York Times) His initial successes came via a string of Columbia singles in the early 1950's, including such chart-toppers as "Because of You," "Rags to Riches," and a remake of Hank Williams' "Cold, Cold Heart." He had 24 songs in the Top 40, including: "I Wanna Be Around," "The Good Life," "Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)?” and his signature song, "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," which garnered him the first two of his 17 Grammy Awards. Tony Bennett is one of only a handful of artists to have new albums charting in the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's and 10’s. He introduced a multitude of songs into the great American Songbook that have since become pop music classics.

Music: Tim McGraw To Perform In Bangor, Maine

02/24/14 - TIM MCGRAW with Kip Moore and Cassadee Pope. McGraw Unveils Details For The SUNDOWN HEAVEN TOWN 2014 TOUR.

Coming on the heels of three consecutive Number One smash hits and a sold out tour in 2013, Superstar Tim McGraw is riding major momentum into the new year with brand new music and plans for an even bigger summer ahead. The SUNDOWN HEAVEN TOWN 2014 TOUR will kick off in May on the West Coast. McGraw's "characteristically high-octane" (Billboard) show will hit 30 cities over the course of the summer and make a stop in Bangor, ME at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion on Thursday, May 29 as part of the Machias Savings Bank Concert Series.

"This last year was unbelievable, and I don't have any plans to let off the gas now. We didn't want to waste any time getting new music out," said McGraw. "With every album, my approach is to push a few of my own boundaries and try things I've never done before. It was hard to choose a lead single off this project because I really felt like we had six or seven good options. I kept coming back to 'That Girl' because even though it may be a little different for me sonically, I couldn't get it out of my head!"

McGraw was nominated for two Grammy awards for his Big Machine Records debut, Two Lanes Of Freedom, which spawned three back to back No. one songs including the Platinum- selling smash hit "Highway Don't Care" with Taylor Swift, featuring Keith Urban on guitar. Over his career, McGraw has sold over 40 million albums, won three Grammy’s, 15 ACM Awards, 14 CMA Awards and 10 AMA’s, while simultaneously maintaining a parallel career as a successful actor in such films as the Oscar nominated The Blind Side, Country Strong, Friday Night Lights and the upcoming Disney production, Tomorrowland.

General Public ticket sale begins FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28th AT 10:00AM $28.25 to $102.25 Reserved Seating & General Admission - PLUS ANY APPLICABLE FEES DEPENDING ON PURCHASE OUTLET - Tickets available via waterfrontconcerts.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000 or the venue box office located at Mark’s Music in Brewer.

Music: Aan Premieres Single "Daylight"


02/20/14 - More From The Publicist:

Currently one of the most talked-about bands in their home city of Portland, OR, Aan began as a bedroom pop project of singer and primary songwriter Bud Wilson. Over time, as his songs began to evolve and twist convention, it became clear that they demanded more sonic oomph than could be delivered by just one guitar, and a band began to coalesce. Long-time collaborator Reese Lawhon and drummer Jon Lewis came on board first, followed by producer Jeff Bond and most recently Brainstorm’s Patrick Phillips on guitar.

The band's debut record, Amor Ad Nauseum, released by Portland imprint Party Damage on February 4, was recorded over two years in various studios and a cabin on the Oregon coast. Lyrically and sonically, the album explores themes of the devotion, desire, complacency, loneliness, and desperation. Though the locations vary, a thick thread runs track to track through the release's nine songs. More confident than most debut albums and more urgent than albums from most of Aan’s peers, Amor Ad Nauseum is a sticky, lush labor of love and lust.

Tastemakers are taking note. Stereogum says Aan "feels like rock music in 3d", KEXP has them on rotation and recently posted a live in-studio session, and Noisey debuted the video for the track "Somewhere's Sunshine"

Aan tours and performs as a four piece, often turning versions of their recordings upside down. Frontman Bud Wilson reaches octaves of the late Jeff Buckley, while rooted in a grittier timbre. Lawhon, Lewis and Phillips match Wilson's caterwaul with cooing harmonies and a measured rhythmic pulse.

Their blend of discordance and harmony has earned Aan touring support with alt rock juggernauts like The Smashing Pumpkins and indie legends Built to Spill, and they’ve shared bills with indie stalwarts like Wye Oak, Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Red Fang, Gardens & Villa, Bosnian rainbows and many others.

Already having performed at SXSW, Noise Pop, MusicFestNW, and countless dates across the United States, Aan is setting out on a month-long tour in February and March that will take them again to Noise Pop and SXSW as an official showcasing artist, as well as festival dates at Valley of the Vapors and Treefort, and club dates in most of the western United States.
