“I Ain’t Been Lonely, Until I Met You” is a folk-rock tune. This track reminds of us Johnny Cash with some punk flavors mixed in. We think it would make a great soundtrack to a Bar Scene placed in the South. We can’t wait to hear the completed record! Stay tuned!

NED Records: A Collective with New Releases Every wedNEsDay

NED Records is a collaborative music collective based out of Bowling Green, KY.

RTP: Who is in the bands line-up?

NED Records: We’re not so much a band as a group of solo artists who write songs with each other and play on the recordings of those songs. We all write, separately and together.

Rick Korte – facebook.com/RickKorteMusic – guitar, bass, percussion, drums, production
Rick is our resident guitar god. His sound is a primarily acoustic blend of influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, and Eddie Van Halen to Tommy Emmanuel and Andy McKee. He has released 2 albums so far, Leaves…(2010) and Where I Am (2011), and is currently working on his third album, Invisible Influences.

Asher Austin – facebook.com/AsherAustinMusic – vocals, guitar, bass
Asher is the outstanding singer of the group. Our latest wNEDesday release is his cover of Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida”. An incredible pop-rock vocalist, he is currently working on a debut album Crumble that draws from such wide ranging influences as Coldplay, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks, Nirvana, and the Counting Crows. Think Savage Garden meets 3 Doors Down. His first single, “When It’s Raining”, can be heard here: http://asheraustinmusic.com/track/when-its-raining

St. James the Lonely – facebook.com/StJamesTheLonely – vocals, guitar, drums, synths, production
St James the Lonely is an man of mystery, preferring to allow his music to do the talking. Inspired by Nine Inch Nails, The Weeknd, Bill Withers, and an adolescence filled with classic rock like AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynrd, and Led Zeppelin, he’s managed to carve out a funky Industrial R(ock)&B sound all his own. An as-yet-untitled EP is in the works.

DJ Blak Yak – philosophy, production, live DJ
DJ Blak Yak prefers to listen to contemporary, gritty hip-hop such as Kanye West’s Yeezus or A$AP Ferg but he’ll spin whatever. When not producing his own wacked-out, trapped-out, soon-to-be-released bangers, he enjoys providing comic relief to everyday life.

Cash Wilson – facebook.com/CashWilsonMusic – vocals, guitar, bass, keys, drums, production
I’m a huge Prince fan and, as a result, kind of uncomfortable being confined by genre. I prefer to pick, choose, and blend. When asked, I described the sound of my last project (Far Enough III: The Regret) as a jam session featuring D’angelo, Steve Earle, and Peter Gabriel. I’ve released three EPs (Far Enough, Far Enough II: Detour & Far Enough III: The Regret) all for free download on CashWilsonMusic.com. My upcoming project, upLATE, is shaping up to sound like a combination of Far Enough II and III and the soundtrack to the Ten Commandments.

RTP: What genre do you consider your music?

NED: As a group, our music is obviously varied but I think there’s a common ground of what I’ll call Southern Pop. A blend of R&B, rock, and a slight twang from the mid-90’s country of our youth have all settled into an appreciation for individual musical identities spiced generously with great hooks above all.

RTP: You release music every Wednesday. What inspired this weekly release?

NED: While working on all of the above mentioned projects, we realized we had an abundance of music we loved that didn’t quite fit the overarching concept of those projects. Taking a cue from Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music, we decided to share a little bit at a time. We picked wNEDesdays kind of randomly. The (bad) pun was just a happy accident.

RTP: When did you project start?

NED: We released our first wNEDesday single “Hush (It’s Over)” on September 11th, 2013. We plan on continuing until we can’t anymore.

MIDLANDS FOLK POP ARTIST TO RELEASE ALBUM IN JULY

-LEAD SINGLE AVAILIBLE TO STREAM NOW

“This is the first time I’ve ever wrote songs for my self usually its much heavier and for a band. Its nice to differ from what is the norm for me and concentrate on something a little different,” says Jonny Wood, Songwriter and musician in Cowboys & Indigals, Talking about his influences for Forevermore, My favorite artists and bands have been passed down to me by my dad really, He’s an old folky and loves Bob Dylan, Donavan and stuff like that”

Forevermore offers a wide range of styles and influences, with the Dylan/Donavan guitar chord style mixes with catchy vocal patterns that as a listener will be singing all day- As Jonny Wood wrote and played all of the music and instrumentation in the release, he explains “Forevermore is like my baby, I knew I had a lot of time in the studio and wanted to experiment with instruments. Some of the tracks I had to cut down the instruments as I was adding for the sake of adding. Things like me stamping my feet and recordings of the wind. I know on my next release they might make it in”

Listen to the Lead single ‘High School Romance’ : https://soundcloud.com/owboysandndigals/high-school-romance

Set for release in July, Wood talks about his first show as a solo artist. “It was gnarly, I mean who gets to play their first show at a sold out venue supporting someone as big as Pete Doherty. People seemed to love it. It was a huge boost for me to continue playing live”

Wood finishes: “The perks of being in a band are that you can count on others. With this I know I have to count on myself.

‘Forevermore’ will be released mid July 2014
