SOJA Releases New Music Video “Shadow”, Raises Awareness For Out-Of-School Children in Ethiopia

SOJA Releases New Music Video “Shadow”, Raises Awareness For Out-Of-School Children in Ethiopia

Watch + Share

The Video Is Part Of UNICEF’s “Out-of-School” Children Initiative; 3 Million Children Remain Out Of School In The East African Nation

SOJA, in collaboration with UNICEF, are helping to highlight the problem of out-of-school children in Ethiopia through their new music video, “Shadow,” which was filmed in Jigiga, Ethiopia. An estimated 3 million primary school-aged children remain out of school in the East African nation. For more information, visit: http://www.AllInSchool.org/ You can watch + share the video HERE.

The global initiative calls for a greater investment in better data and demonstrates that reaching the most marginalized children may initially cost more but also yields greater benefits. Visit the UNICEF website for more information about the initiative: http://www.unicef.org/education/bege_61659.html 

“Shadow is a song for people as a whole everywhere in the world,” explains SOJA lead guitarist and vocalist Trevor Young. “It’s about realizing that we are all equals and should be treated that way. Education should be a basic human right for all people. We are excited to be releasing a music video that will spotlight the power of education and the severe lack of access to schools in Ethiopia.”

The song “Shadow” is featured on the band’s new album Amid The Noise And Haste (ATO Records) which was recently nominated for a GRAMMY in the “Best Reggae Album” category. The album originally debuted at #20 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart and #3 on iTunes Top Albums Chart. Rolling Stone said: “This new album will likely win friends, influence people, and make the country a better place.” USA Today gave the album 3 1/2 out of 4 stars, saying, “This band’s bouncy rhythms and soulful melodies carry potent messages of social justice.”

Amid The Noise And Haste was produced by multiple GRAMMY award winning Jamaican producer Supa Dups (Bruno Mars, Eminem, Rihanna, John Legend). Amid The Noise And Haste features special guests including Michael Franti, Damian Marley, and Collie Buddz.

GRAMMY winners Old Crow Medicine Show Release The Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer EP; Out Now

Get the EP at iTunes // Amazon

Today, Old Crow Medicine Show releases The Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer EP. The release contains the latest single from The Crow – “Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer.” This special 4 track EP also includes two tracks which were previously unavailable to fans – “Mother Church,” written in honor of Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and former long time home to the Grand Ole Opry, a live version of “The Warden”, and “I Done Wrong Blues” which was previously released on a limited edition 7″. A physical version of the EP will be available this spring.

Celebrated roots string band Old Crow Medicine Show won the GRAMMY for BEST FOLK ALBUM for their highly praised album Remedy on ATO Records. Remedy marked the highest Billboard debut in the band’s 18 year career and was praised by the press with coverage that included NPR Music, NPR Morning Edition, Garden & Gun, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Huffington Post, Associated Press and many more. Old Crow Medicine Show also performed on CONAN, headlined their biggest tour ever and most recently was the subject of an extensive profile on CBS This Morning.

Old Crow Medicine Show recently shot a video for their new single “Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer”, at Nashville’s famed Tennessee State Penitentiary, which was also the location for the acclaimed Tom Hanks film, The Green Mile. CMT will debut the video via a 48 Hour Exclusive Premiere on the CMT Hot 20 Countdown, CMT, and CMT.com on February 21st and 22nd.

With fans ranging from hipsters to college students to music purists young and old, Old Crow Medicine Show have remained an unwavering force in roots music. Now being recognized as the torch-bearers of traditional old-time string music, or Country Music as they like to refer to it, they proudly and successfully are doing their part to celebrate the integrity of the genre in the modern era. The EP is available now on iTunes and Amazon.

Listen to new Rayland Baxter song “Yellow Eyes” on NPR; New Album Out Aug 14

Yellow Eyes,” the new single from acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Rayland Baxter, premiered today at NPR Music and can now be purchased at iTunes. You can pre-order his upcoming album Imaginary Man (Out Aug. 14) NOW.

Of the song, NPR Music’s Ann Powers praises, “Many musicians can craft about one-third of an excellent pop song. Some write beautiful bare melodies that drip into your head like honey into cake. Others are masters of tone, using genius arrangements and technical wizardry to craft a sound that transports, no matter the shape of the tune. Still others employ wit to craft characters that feel like friends. Rarely, a musician manages to do all three. On the new ‘Yellow Eyes,’ Rayland Baxter comes pretty darn close to such perfection.”

The song is from Baxter’s anticipated new full-length album, Imaginary Man, which will be released August 14 and is now available for pre-order.

Recorded in Nashville, the 11-track album was produced by Adam Landry (Deer Tick, Diamond Rugs) and Eric Masse (Andrew Combs, Robert Ellis) and features Bucky Baxter on pedal steel as well as Jessie Baylin, Isaaca Byrd (MYZICA), Mikky Ekko, Jordan Lehning (Caitlin Rose, Steelism) and Matt Vazquez (Delta Sprit) on background vocals.

Of the album, Baxter comments, “To me, Imaginary Man is an audible record of my journey down the bright blue river of imagination. It is a multicolored dream of song, a sonic birdbath if you may. The sounds and songs are as visual as they are tactile and it shows a bit more of who I have become as an artist, as continual and never ending as that process is.”

Imaginary Man follows Baxter’s highly praised debut feathers & fishHooks, which was released in 2012. Since then, Baxter has toured alongside Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Kacey Musgraves, The Head and the Heart, Shakey Graves, Boz Scaggs and Tedeschi Trucks Band, among many others. In celebration of the new album, Baxter will embark on a series of tour dates this summer and fall, including an appearance at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. See below for more details. Additional dates to be announced shortly.
