Patrick Kinsley is a pretty lousy guitar player and sings just well enough to carry a tune. Nevertheless, he's somehow able to write with a voice that makes the characters in his songs come alive - makes them drink, screw, curse and spit. Profusely.

“They're usually of the Tom T. Hall variety- light on choruses, heavy on image. Like, y’know, the whole story-song thing,” says Kinsley. 

Kinsley cut his teeth on the sometimes hospitable, sometimes hellish New Orleans club circuit. After two years of hard work and dumb luck, Patrick found he was ready to put it all on the line and make the move to Nashville.   Currently recording his debut, For A Thousand Miles, with his ass-kicking band A Fistful Of Dollars, Patrick Kinsley will return to the dives and ditches of America to support Miles this summer.

Southern-rock outfit Sweettalker is hitting the stage this fall with their debut Extended Play titled, “TBD.” The melodic, yet almost innately rambunctious effort showcases the group’s young gun persona as it sweetly bleeds through an overall warm vintage sound. Building and refining this project has been a long process but we’re stoked on how it turned out and even more thrilled to finally be hitting the road, doing what we love.” says frontman David Brown. “We took our time to be sure this music is as honest and genuine as possible.” added guitar player and vocalist Ryan Pattengale - “We’re not interested in promoting gimmicks or sucking up. This band is about challenging the common way and chasing a dream with your friends. That’s what we wanted to shine through, and that’s what we hope our listeners will connect with.”

Their first single, “Jenny” is slated for release in August with the EP dropping in mid September. Nashville based Sweettalker spent the early summer weeks in Atlanta, Georgia recording at Glow In The Dark."Matt [McClellan] has been a good friend of ours for a some time. He always creates a very polished sound without compromising the integrity of the live tracking," says frontman. Details for their upcoming CD release, pictures, tour dates, music and more can be found on their website.

Blake Rainey has been recognized by The Atlanta Journal Constitution, music magazines Flagpole and Stomp & Stammer, and The Creative Loafing as one of Georgia's finest songwriters. His most recent LP effort, A Man, Not A Biography (Spin Magazine - 7 out of 10 stars) might just signal the swan song of his longtime group, The Young Antiques, but after last year's live-in-the-studio EP Ambulance Alley Sessions, the Atlanta rocker/singer-songwriter is back with a full length studio album with his current outfit, Blake Rainey and His Demons (which consists of Joe Foy on bass and Eric Young on drums - a dazzling combination of talent that make them one of the music scene's best rhythm sections). The result is Love Don't Cross Me, a stoic and stylistically schizophrenic meditation on the prizes and perils of love—nine concise tunes that lay bare the puzzle pieces of those epic, classic human relationships we all know too well.

From indie-pop to country rock, punk to noise to folk, Love Don't Cross Me is a return to the character studies Rainey does so well, with songs that swing from naive young lovers to the hopelessly lost and alone, to forgotten losers who spit in love's face, to long-time lovers reflecting on their lives together. All in roughly 35 minutes.
