JC Brooks makes soul-infused, genre-bending music that is energetic and kinetically charged. The grab-the- listener-at- all-costs mashup manifesto has been captured to a T on the band's new joint, The Neon Jungle, which is set for an April 7, 2017 release via Rock Ridge Music. Their soul mashup version of Wilco's "I'm Trying to Break Your Heart" was a nationwide jam released by Bloodshot Records as JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound, but with the new album The Neon Jungle, they have dropped "the Uptown Sound" but continue as one powerful live band. Brooks himself describes The Neon Jungle as an album-length depiction of "one crazy, incredible night out." JC Brooks has made a career out of delivering the goods, from club stages to the biggest festivals in US and Europe. The live version of the The Neon Jungle will be flowing from a stage near you.
There are only so many times you can take back that cheating lover or accept excuses from a lazy scrub. It's easier said than done, but one soul band is taking a stand. The Right Now isn't going to take it anymore. The Right Now is fed up. And on their second record, The Right Now Gets Over You.
The challenging title is a reality check, but delivered with a smile from singer Stefanie Berecz. "It's just a representation of the stories in the songs. Nearly every track has a cheating character, or someone who's had enough of their lover. It's a mixed bag of empowerment and regret." Gets Over You continues the "it's complicated" theme of 2010′s Carry Me Home, although this outing shows Berecz in a darker, seedier role. read more... www.shankhall.com
