Show # 95 - Desert Rose Revealed
It's always great to check back in with artists and bands that I've had the pleasure of featuring on The Big Break Music Podcast. Back in November 2006 I was told about singer/songwriter Ruby James and shortly thereafter got to interview and feature songs from her first EP called Sweet As Sin (episode # 49). At that time she talked about a new album she was working on with Will and Charlie Sexton in Austin, Texas.
Recently I was contacted by Ruby's manager to review her new album and was surprised to find that this CD is the result of an entirely new project. She and band member/songwriter Rene Reyes put together an entire album's worth of material over a three day period and quickly hit the studio to record what would soon become her first full-length album called Desert Rose.
So on today's episode I have an interview that was recorded just before she was scheduled to fly back to California to film a music video for the new album.
Tracks from Desert Rose featured: Suicide Serenade Desert Rose Oh Mama Everything Good Goes Away When I'm Gone Mistress Of The Devil
I also produced Ruby James' first live internet video performance of the new album on Ustream.tv. Click here to visit view a portion of the live show.
Another artist that is represented by Ruby's management is Shane Alexander, whom has also been interviewed and featured on this podcast (episode # 57). Shane's new album The Sky Below is slated for release on February 2oth, with a CD release party to be held at the famous Troubadour club in Hollywood, CA. The first track from that album is called Amsterdam.
