Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band have returned with a new studio album "Dance Songs For Hard Times." The album was produced by Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton) and was recorded using cutting edge technology from the 1950s. During these recent hard times, Rev. Peyton wrote us a set of song to help ease the suffering and give us hope. The new eleven song release begins with the rockabilly guitar swagger and preacher-style vocals of "Ways And Means," along with the swift, psychobilly punk-infused "Rattle Can." You can feel the emotion in his voice during the blues of "Dirty Hustlin'," while "I'll Pick Your Up" carries a nostalgic rock and roll sound that is driven by some stellar, raw steel guitar work. The Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band blast through the tears of "Sad Songs," with their gospel-like, Americana music style. The album finishes with the country rock blast of "'Til We Die" and the swampy, southern blues redemption of "Come Down Angels."

Fellow Americana artists Cole Quest and The City Pickers are also preparing to release a set of new songs titled "Self (En) Titled." Cole is grandson of legendary folk artist Woody Guthrie and his latest batch of music aims right at your musical soul, with a simple, classic sound for all to enjoy. The new six-song EP begins with the up-tempo strumming of "Ostrich Therapy," as you can hear that iconic Guthrie tone in Cole's vocals. The album continues with the story-telling lyrics of "The Bitcoin Gambler" and a cover of his grandfather's "Way Over Yonder In The Minor Key," using the music Billy Bragg originally created for the song. Cole Quest and The City Pickers wrap up their latest release with the soft, beautiful emotions of "My Sweet Little Girl" and the bluegrass strumming of "If I Still Had You."
