Keller Williams


Unbelievable!! It's so hard for me to believe that VAPE is Keller Williams 20th official release. Vape finds the prolific singer/songwriter/guitarist offering 10 original tracks, some road

tested and some brand new.

Vape finds Keller at his best delivering his signature, off the wall story telling. Backed by a variety of fellow musicians including Samson Grisman/Bass, John Kadlecik/Guitar, Ronnie McCoury/Mandolin, Rob McCoury/Banjo, Alan Bartram/Bass, Jason Carter/Fiddle and others.

Keller's playing has never been more precise and versatile. No matter what the configuration, Keller always reveals himself as an artist of great stylistic breadth and infinite imagination on

a continuous quest for the new.

As Keller "This record was made as a VirginiA Psychedelic Excursion." So now the CD title is

revealed....VAPE. Keller states " It's like taking all of my favorite songs that I have been

playing live lately and smashing them all together!"



Bill Kurzenberger hails from Columbus Ohio and is one of Ohio's hottest singer/songwriters in the Mid-West! This new project features nine Songs all written & composed by Bill. Bill reached out to some of the musicians (fourteen in all) that he has or is currently performing with. RESONATE takes you on a musical journey that features all the sides of this talented musician/singer/songwriter.

I am a huge fan of Dr. John & Bruce Hornsby and Bill fills that soulful sound as he casts his spell that leaves you wanting more!

RESONATE is a well produced CD and with the layering of great musicianship that you can tell comes loyal support of Members of the Bug Hounds, KrisB's Midnight Railroad (two of the bands that Bill currently performs in), Ian Carroll, Travis Gates, Scott Marruskin, Lou Schocken and Eric Ran-mom all friends of this tale talented performer. They set the stage to let Bill shine with his soulful keys and vocals. For all of you Upstage NY fans that remember the days of The Homel-Alaniz Band. Bill has hooked up with David Homel and they have assembled a NEW seasoned All-Star band with some of the finest players of the Mid West. They will begin touring in August as they unveil this new excit-ing project! Keep you eye out for WHAT GOES AROUND!



The Will McBride Group is well known from Raleigh, NC up & down the East Coast! ALL IN is their fourth release and contains 5 new original songs and a twist on Billy Joel's "Just The Way You Are. This project is well produced & Engineered John Plymale (Squirrel Nut Zippers, Tift Merritt, Connells).

Will McBride not only wrote the songs, he performed lead & backing vocals, played all of the guitar parts and he was the Associate Producer. Any fan of the good old Blues and Soulful Funk sounds will be right at home with ALL IN!

Morgan Roots is a collaboration of members from Brooklyn, Springfield, MA and Jamaica. The Royal Fam-ily of Reggae's release is released on their own label CTBC (Cool To Be Conscious). Strictly Roots grabs you from the fist note and the Jai Mon begins! Morgan Heritage gives you 12 great tracks that will have you up and dancing! Strictly Roots incorporates R&B and a hint of Dancehall, but it goes a step further with this

synergy and almost effortless fuses of Roots, Dubstep, Pop & Dancehall.
