Mindi Abair Performs "No Good Deed" & Chuck Mead Brings Us "Close To Home"

Newcomer Mindi Abair is preparing to release her new studio album titled "No Good Deed" on June 28th through Abair's own Pretty Good For A Girl record label. The album was produced by Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith), who returned to control desk after also producing Mindi's debut album. The new ten track release is a mix of originals and re-worked covers, as Mindi makes the music all her own, along with her amazing backing band, The Boneshakers.

She starts off with the blazing guitar shuffle of "Seven Day Fool," as Mindi Abair gets the energy flowing early. The album continues with the arena-built rockers "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished" and her re-imaged cover of the Young Rascals' "You Better Run," before reaching for the blues of "Sweetest Lies." After the swampy swagger of "Bad News," Mindi Abair and The Boneshakers pick the energy up once again with the in-your-face rocker "Movin' On." The album closes with a duet of Abair and drummer Third Richardson on their explosive cover of Ike and Tina Turner's "Baby Get It On." Mindi Abair and The Boneshakers have shows lined-up in June and August all over the U.S. For a complete list of tour dates and to find out more about their new album "No Good Deed," please visit mindiabair.com.

Nashville-artist Chuck Mead is preparing the release of this new studio album "Close To Home," arriving June 28th through Plowboy Records. It features eleven tracks, recorded at Sam Phillips' historic recording studio in Memphis, TN. Mead delivers the music on this album with a new sense of inspiration and energy. The set begins with the classic rockabilly swing of "Big Bear" and the nostalgic sixties country vibe of "I'm Not The Man For The Job." As you listen to this new album, you'd think that it was from another era, as the songs "Better Thank I Was" and "Close To Home" have that old-fashion vibe that is certainly hard to capture in today technical world. Chuck Mead can still get you up to dance with the energetic blast of "The Man Who Shook The World" and the swagger of "Shake." Chuck Mead will be hitting the road this summer.
