Singer-songwriter Jillian Edwards hails from Texas, but she now calls Nashville home. A graduate of Baylor University, her crystalline, breezy soprano and intelligent, heartfelt songwriting have been steadily attracting fans, including Fervent Records recording artist/producer Chris August, who produced her first album, Galaxies & Such. In November of 2011, Jillian released her sophomore effort, Headfirst, which was the No. 1 album on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart on release day and throughout that following week, in addition to peaking at #12 on the overall iTunes album chart on release day. Once again finding her teaming with August (and Jacob Schrodt) Headfirst finds Jillian exploring lyrical themes that resonate profound and universal simultaneously. Her engaging and delightfully unconventional melodic sense is also showcased, assuredly inviting listeners to dive Headfirst for more.
Air Review started writing songs in 2008 out of the converted garage of an unassuming suburban house outside of Dallas, Texas. Meeting once a week for nearly a year in a room without air conditioning or heating, the quintet carefully crafted a record that they later self-released in 2009. After a couple years of playing countless shows and receiving glowing reviews, the band still felt like something was missing. The group hibernated for another 12 months and re-invented themselves.
The first offering from their newly defined sound, America’s Son, became one of the most requested songs on north Texas’ 91.7 KXT who later included it in their “Best Songs of 2011” right next to Adele, Foster the People and Coldplay. America’s Son also caught the attention of The Huffington Post and CMJ who claimed it was “a very different sound from other folk-pop groups and considered the band one to watch in 2012”.
Air Review’s dynamic live shows have landed them support slots for acts such as Flaming Lips, Portugal. The Man, Grimes and School of Seven Bells. Their knack for engaging melodies has turned heads around the world securing licensing with the International Olympic Committee and Levi’s.
All of this paved the way for their upcoming masterfully composed full-length album, Low Wishes, to be released by Velvet Blue Music (Huntington Beach, CA) and Spune (DFW, Texas) January 29th, 2013. This self-produced and recorded, pop infused indie record gracefully combines folk influences with synthesizers, beats and noisy guitars. It is soft and subtle at times, yet unmistakably anthemic, complete with magnificent choruses.
Low Wishes is a nostalgic look at growing into adulthood and an affirmation of the belief that there is something more to life. Without hesitation, Air Review is clearly poised to stand out in a big way in 2013, simply by staying the course it has already set.
THE LONELY HUNTER
The Lonely Hunter is a rock band originally from College Station, TX. Despite the town’s profound country music background, The Lonely Hunter has developed an original sound that has drawn crowds all over Texas. Most of the guys hail from the Dallas area and have spent their younger years around the big city scene. Now that they are in Central Texas, these guys have been a driving force in the local scene, and have begun to branch out into the surrounding cities. Their sound can be defined by their beautiful melodic textures. In their latest self-titled release, The Lonely Hunter worked with Producer, MD Thompson, to create a 6-song EP that grabs you by the ear and holds you by the heart. The Lonely Hunter believes in music with a purpose and a meaning, and their on-stage performance shows nothing else.
