Apr 21, 2015 | Artist News

Kemosabe Records singer-songwriter, Christian Burghardt releases the music video for his debut single, “Safe Place To Land” today. The video stars pro-surfer Quincy Davis playing Christian’s opposite in the video as well a pro-surfer Bruna Schmitz.  Burghardt possesses all the qualities a fan of guitar driven pop could want: a rich, soulful voice with loads of texture; heartfelt, deeply personal lyrics; bright, nimble guitar playing, and a relatable, amiable presence to deliver it all. Writer-producer Dr. Luke saw this clearly when he signed Burghardt to his Sony Music imprint Kemosabe Records in partnership with RCA Records. Last fall, Burghardt released his EP Safe Place To Land and toured with American Idol winner Phillip Phillips and various dates with Gavin DeGraw and Matt Nathanson.  Burghardt is currently in the studio writing and recording his debut album which is set to be released later this year.

Photo credit: Andrew Wallach From AmericanSongwriter.com Guest Blog: Frank Viele On What The Road Has Taught Him Music, most art for that matter, is a reflection on the society and times in which it is created.  Hitting the road for over 200 performances in the last two years introduced me to the nuances of a changing world fueled by social media interaction, counter cultures, and a search not for a voice, but for understanding.  This realization was the groundwork for the finishing touches to the songs which make up my first full-length album, “Fall Your Way.” From my earliest days as an artist, I always looked at the live element of music and studio recordings as interdependent entities.  When approached by a veteran record producer to make my first full-length album as a “solo artist,” I charged into the recording studio the first day with almost 50 songs in various stages of completion.  He sat me in the live room with one microphone and said, “Play me everything you’ve got that...

Feb 27, 2015 | Artist News

Kutless' co-founder and frontman Jon Micah Sumrall has announced a personal side project, Faith & Family, that was released on BEC Recordings on February 24.  "This project has been a long time coming for me as writing is a form of expression where I can explain my feelings and what I'm thinking," shares Jon Micah Sumrall. "Over the years as we've written for Kutless albums, most of these personal songs just didn't fit what we were looking for so these particular songs began piling up. I’m excited to share these songs with everyone as they are a window into my heart and a reflection of who I am.” Faith & Family features a more mellow vibe than what Kutless fans have come to know and expect from the band. Jon Micah approached this album very differently with no rules and many acoustic elements. Some of the songs have been written years ago - such as a song he wrote for is wife on their wedding day, which was more than 13 years ago. Hear more about this project from Jon Micah in the video below. ...
