Grizfolk Is In The House

The Bicycle Music Company is pleased to announce it has entered into a worldwide publishing agreement with emerging Virgin/Capitol recording artists Grizfolk. The cross-continental collective (Stockholm - Los Angeles) consists of multi-instrumentalist/producer-songwriters Adam Roth, Fredrik Eriksson, Sebastian Fritze, Bill Delia and Brendan Willing James, whose sound can be described as next-thing folktronic (electro-inflected folk-rock). The band's ultra-hooky organic pop songs touch on themes of haunting, dreamlike blue-collar romanticism from both the futurist and revivalist perspectives where tumbleweeds meet turntables. Having previously toured the globe with Bastille, the band are currently touring nationally with Wild Cub before they hit the road again with Bastille in the fall. Currently released is the band's popular "From The Spark" EP, as they finish work on a highly anticipated full album debut.

Lady Day Takes The Tonys

The 1959-set play, which centers on one of the legendary Billie Holiday's final public appearances, Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, gets its second extended run at Circle In The Square on Broadway, as Audra McDonald walks away with her sixth (record-breaking) Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role, for her portrayal of one of the greatest jazz singers of all-time. The story takes place in Philadelphia in the months before Holiday's death and poignantly recounts her life story through the songs that made her famous, including "God Bless the Child," "Strange Fruit," "What a Little Moonlight Can Do," "When a Woman Loves a Man," "Foolin' Myself," "Don't Explain," "Somebody's On My Mind," "Taint Nobody's Bizness," and "Baby Doll" among others.  The Lonny Price directed production earned a second Tony Award for Best Sound Design of a Musical for Steven Canyon Kennedy. A cast album of the play was recorded live by PS Classics and will be released July 15, 2014.

New Releases

  • Kat Edmonson - The Big Picture

    September 30, 2014 (Sony Masterworks) The Texas to Brooklyn transplant brings her oddly beautiful sultry voice and unique blend of breezily evocative, jazz fused, cinematic pop-noir to the grooves of her first major label release with the help of Grammy award winning producer-extraordinaire Mitchell Froom and frequent songwriter/collaborator Miles Zuniga (Fastball, Spoon, Dandy Warhols), in songs such as the surreal and dreamy "Avion" and a sombre yet riveting cover of Zuniga's own "You Can't Break My Heart".
  • Motionless In White - Reincarnate

    September 16, 2014 (Fearless) Produced and co-written largely by Tim Skold (Marilyn Manson, KMFDM), MIW's third album, Reincarnate, has a huge first week debut as #1 Rock Album and #9 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. A dark cohesion of sonically diverse, pulse-pounding, no holds barred, EDM laced industrial-metal, makes this follow up to their 2012 Skold produced Infamous, the compelling goth-metal soundtrack MIW fans have been anticipating. Key tracks include "Final Dictvm", "Comtemptress", "Wasp" and a bonus acoustic version of "Sinematic" (first released electrically on Infamous).
  • Wish I Was Here - OST

    July 15, 2014 (Columbia Records)  The soundtrack to Zach Braff's much anticipated follow-up to his indie outbreak hit Garden State features music hand-picked by Braff, including Radical Face's indie-folk heartstring puller "The Mute".  Previously released on Radical Face's album The Family Tree: The Branches, the song is In the company of new songs by other indie-sensations Bon Ivar, Hozier, Cat Power, The Shins and Coldplay. It's also featured nicely in the film as well as being an integral part of the film's marketing campaign, in the theatrical trailer and related press.
