12.6 Takuya Kuroda at 8:30pm ET

Whether moving from Japan to the U.S. or navigating between the influences of jazz, soul, hip-hop, Afrobeat and electronica, trumpeter/composer Takuya Kuroda has never followed a straight path. On his fifth studio album and Concord Records debut, the aptly named Zigzagger, Kuroda darts between those wide-ranging interests with a funky swagger and an intensely swinging vigor. The deeply infectious album, due out October 7, 2016, finds the trumpeter snaking his way around the opposing poles of acoustic and electric, bristling grooves and blissed-out vibes, punchy brass and fluid synths, carving his own distinctive sonic path along the way.

“Life is sometimes not that easy, sometimes not so difficult, and it should never go straight,” Kuroda says. “It’s always zigzagging. So I put my soul and spirit into that word.”

Back in January 2011, worn out from having spent a year on tour and facing a new album’s release and another year spent mostly on a bus, away from the comforts of home and family, I decided to try to write a book. I had made a couple of stabs in that direction before (as well as a couple of screenplays) but had so far failed to complete one. The thing is, I love to write on the road. I write most every day out there. It’s usually not songs, as completing a song amid all of the noise, distractions and music blasting on the bus is very difficult (I do often start songs there that get finished later) but writing non-musical compositions comes pretty easy for me out here and it sure passes the time. Beside, I had an idea for a story I wanted to write and it started coming very easily. By our third month on the road I already had a pretty firm outline of what I wanted and several chapters that I felt really good about.

FutureType is the brainchild of producer Miles Felix, singer Chris Bruffee, and rapper DJC. Stumbling across a buried cadre of beats produced by Miles years ago, the longtime friends from Montpelier, VT, and Brooklyn were inspired to bring the music to life. Assembling a crew of talented NYC-based musicians, they sought to bridge the gap between dance-inducing DJ-Electronica and animated full band performances. Now, FutureType's potent sound comes from driving beats laid down by live drums; sharp horn lines; funktastic guitar; soulful vocals; and crisp rapping. Notable gigs include Mercury Lounge, Brooklyn Bowl, DROM, Brooklyn Bazaar, Friends and Lovers, and the legendary underground institution Rubulad.

Members of FutureType have played with, opened for, and recorded with such artists as Snoop Dogg, Talib Kweli, Method Man, Drake, Juvenile, Lil Wayne Melanie Fiona, Common, GURU's Jazzamataz, Femi Kuti, Capital Cities, Lee Scratch Perry, Stephen Marley, Medeski Martin and Wood, Antibalas, and more.

The 10-track collection will release on October 27.

Wry Observer was recorded over four days at Nashville’s Sputnik Sound with producer Brad Lindsay. Filled with mystery and humor, the album offers insight on what Aaron has learned about life in the past 15 years – after overcoming several obstacles both personally and professionally, he’s arrived at a place where his songs tell his stories the way he wants them to be told, with his unique wit weaved in.

IMUNURI is a collection of musicians based in Brooklyn, NY and Bloomington, IN. They began as strangers, each desperate for a new music project, who found each other on Craigslist – as desperate people are wont to do. But they soon became close friends and have now been making music together for over two and a half years, even despite job relocations! They call their music “eclectic rock” because it’s a smorgasbord of different genres from rock, to funk, to reggae, with a smattering of social angst. They released their debut EP – Euphoric State – in March of 2016, and they are preparing to release their first full-length album – Elephant Shaped Trees – in early 2018.  For more info on the band, visit imunuri.com.

Finding happiness daily is not an easy thing.”

Friends for over a decade actor/director Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother, Mercy Street, Liberal Arts) and indie-troubadour Ben Lee have formed a new indie-pop duo by the name of Radnor & Lee. 

Combining their shared interest in spirituality and philosophy, the two sat down to write a song together, which subsequently turned into ten, and their musical partnership was born. 

Their debut single “Be Like The Being” is a dynamically uplifting, spiritual folk-pop tune that instills the feeling of pure joy in the listener’s core via the infectious melody, sweet violin, heavenly harmonies, and foot-stomping chorus. It's enlightening, charming and perfectly delightful.

10.28 Umphrey's McGee 8:00pm CST

After 19-plus years of performing more than 100 concerts annually, releasing nine studio albums and selling more than 4.2+ million tracks online, Umphrey’s McGee might be forgiven if they chose to rest on their laurels. But then that wouldn’t be consistent with the work ethic demonstrated by the band, which consistently attempts to raise the bar, setting and achieving new goals since forming on the Notre Dame campus in South Bend, Indiana, in 1997. After releasing their eighth studio album, Similar Skin, the first for their own indie label, Nothing Too Fancy (N2F) Music (distributed by RED), the group continues to push the envelope and test the limits. Their latest studio album, The London Session, was a dream come true for the members having been recorded at the legendary Studio Two at historic Abbey Road. The stealth recording session yielded 10 tracks in a single day, proving once again, the prolific UM waits for no one.

As a follow up to The London Session, the envelope pushing continues with the November 11th release of ZONKEY. Umphrey’s McGee has been arranging and performing original mashups live for over eight years. It was only a matter of when, not if, some of those innovative concoctions would find their way into a studio. An album of 12 unique mashups, conceived and arranged by the band, ZONKEY is as seamless as it bizarre, playful as it is razor sharp. Bits and pieces of classic songs are culled from 40-plus years of popular music from 70s Reggae to 80s Pop to 90s Metal and everywhere in between. From Radiohead mashed with Beck, The Weeknd with Fleetwood Mac, Talking Heads with Bob Marley, Metallica with Gorillaz . . . nothing is off limits.

The original Umphrey’s McGee played a mix of originals and cover songs, waiting just eight months to release their debut album, the cheekily titled Greatest Hits Volume III. Their initial “proper” recording, Local Band Does OK, came out in 2002, followed shortly afterward by an appearance at the first-ever Bonnaroo in Tennessee, selling more albums than any other band on the bill. The 2007 double album, Live at the Murat, earned a four-star review in Rolling Stone and a Jammy for Best Live Album.

There’s a push-pull in everything Phil Pickens says and doesn’t say, in what he sings and doesn’t sing. “The words I do not say speak louder than I want them to,” he sings in “Fool’s Gold.” Born and raised in Georgia, his crooked smile and royal blue eyes perfectly embody the double edge of kindness and menace in southern hospitality. Pickens has a bracing, expressive voice and a style that blends folk sensibilities and contemporary indie rock

ADDED COLOR is a Brazilian/American rock band formed in Brooklyn, NY in 2014, and is comprised of brothers Daniel and Kiko Freiberg (São Paulo), Tim Haggerty (Boston), and Danny Dahan (Washington DC). The group has played over 200 shows in over 20 states in the USA, and toured internationally playing a mini-tour in Canada and major festivals in Brazil such as Porão do Rock, which has featured Muse, Eagles of Death Metal, amongst others. The Monsters of Rock Festival officially nominated them as one of five of Brazil’s upcoming rock bands. Added Color has received critical praise from significant press outlets such as PureVolume, Red Bull Music, The Huffington Post, AOL Noisecreep, and The Village Voice.

Added Color first met in Brooklyn, after brothers Dan and Kiko Freiberg moved back from São Paulo, Brazil with only one goal in mind: start a hard hitting and unique sounding band that had the attitude and realness they hadn’t seen in rock music in a while. Through Craiglist ads and jam sessions, they found Tim and Danny. Their musical compatibility quickly developed into a strong friendship, where musical influences ranging from funk to rock blended into what the band states “is simply original sounding music that sums up who we are.” Dan Freiberg elaborates, “Don’t try to put a bunch of names in front of it to categorize it and put it in a box. That’s exactly what we are sick of.”

Added Color made their debut release on May 9, 2017. The 5-song EP is entitled “Psycho”, and was backed by an international tour, which began in Morocco and was followed by a 6-week tour in the USA. “We wrote about 20 songs and played them live in many different cities. The songs that made it to the EP were the ones that translated the best into a live scenario and that we felt represented us the most”, says Kiko Freiberg on the EP.

Added Color brings a high energy and exciting show, whether they’re playing big stages in Brazilian festivals or more intimate venues. Their message: be yourself no matter what, and don’t play into people’s expectations of who you should be.

She participated in music events all over town and created a buzz among metro Atlanta through the years. Upon graduating, she found her place to be in singing and songwriting. Around the same time, she obtained a significant following on social media. She then made her way to Nashville, TN where she studied audio engineering and music production for a short period of time.

The unsigned, unmanaged artist's debut made waves on British charts when it hit the shops, and has now taken off on Spotify with over 40,000 streams. Suzy continues to grow as an artist by playing shows, promoting her music, and working on new material. Tailored to elements of blue-eyed soul music and the classic roots of Motown, Suzy Jones is an artist well beyond her years.

"From a very young age, I just knew that I was gonna spend my life making music," Sean McConnell states.  "I never really questioned it, so I just forged ahead and didn't let anything stop me."

Although his self-titled new Rounder album will serve as his introduction to many listeners, the personable young artist is actually a seasoned, distinctive songwriter and an experienced performer with a quartet of D.I.Y. indie releases to his credit.  Having built a substantial grass-roots fan base through tireless touring and old-fashioned hard work, McConnell is primed for a mainstream breakthrough.

Sean McConnell demonstrates exactly why McConnell has already won such a devoted audience.  He writes vivid, forthright, effortlessly catchy songs whose incisive melodic craft is matched by their resonant emotional insight.  Such instantly memorable tunes as "Holy Days," "Beautiful Rose," "Bottom of the Sea" and "Best We've Ever Been" are both catchy and personally charged, conveying an unmistakable sense of personal experience while exploring universal truths.

"This record's a bit of a step for me," McConnell asserts.  "It's a real storyteller record, and it's pretty autobiographical.  I'm learning how to be more honest and understated in my writing, and I wanted to match that sonically and vocally.  When I look at this collection of songs, I see a lot of nostalgia, and looking back on sacred moments.  I'm kind of nostalgic and reflective by nature."

When The Rad Trads formed in the Spring of 2012, they were meeting each other in New York City's East Village for the first time… transplants from Chicago, Portland, and Washington D.C. looking to play with the best musicians they could find. Their horns, guitars, drums and love for the classics like The Band, Allen Toussaint and Dr. John brought them together. And of course, beer. 

Making rent playing 4 hour gigs in every bar and beer hall that would have them, the guys dominated New York City and Brooklyn with their punk-rock energy and showmanship, so they decided to take their show on the road. 

Almost 5 years later, the Rad Trads have played on 4 Continents, headlining tours and opening for acts such as Tom Jones, Lake Street Dive, Charles Bradley, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal, Margaret Glaspy, The Lone Bellow, and Con Brio.  They have toured Europe seven times, and played in 15 countries and 32 U.S. States. 

Following the release of their first full length album (Must We Call Them Rad Trads - Dala Records) in May 2016, the band is slated to release their second LP of original music soon.

Members of The Rad Trads have performed or recorded with St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Deer Tick, Lee Fields & The Expressions, Jon Batiste & Stay Human, Sarah Jarosz, Christopher Paul Stelling, David Duchovny,  Lenny Pickett, Red Baraat & even Paul McCartney as well as leading their own bands.
