McCabe's Show~New Album~August Tour!  Hot, Hot, Hot! August News

August 3, 2012

"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. ... No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others."  Martha Graham to Agnes De Mille

Dear Friends,

Lo_Res-CamSanders_120715_2723

The band and I had been planning for a rather slow July until the phone rang one wonderful afternoon in late June and it was McCabe's Guitar Shop offering us a show there on July 15. We excitedly kicked into high gear and ended up with a sell-out crowd and one of the finest nights we've ever had on stage. It was great to reconnect with a lot of our Los Angeles friends who hadn't seen the band in awhile and show them our new stuff! Big thanks go to Wayne Griffiths in the sound booth for giving us the best sound support we've ever had, and Lincoln Myerson at McCabe's for inviting us to play. It was an awesome night! Here are some photos from Cam Sanders Photography, and videos are on the way. We were asked back on the spot and will premier our new CD "White Swan" at a CD release concert there in March 2013.

Some audience comments:

"I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed the show, your sets, your selections and the SOUND! I came for the Sound and you guys and the mixer did not disappoint. Your voice and the band, not[e] for note, just rang effortlessly thru that hall. Everyone member of your crew had many moments to shine, but I always leave your shows with your voice in my ear. What a room. Your warmth and the room are a distinct match."

"...It was awesome. And what a great crowd you had. The place was packed...Again, what a great show. You were great and the band was just wonderful."

We have an amazing August coming up: first we welcome the great Lisa Burns on bass to our ensemble for a Northern California mini-tour the second weekend as we return to a favorite, the Good Old Fashioned Bluegrass Festival in Tres Pinos, California near San Jose. Later in the month we return to Brad Colerick's fine songwriter series at the Firefly in South Pasadena and that weekend the Coffee Gallery Backstage in Altadena. We're also starting on (drumroll!) at last! our NEW ALBUM "White Swan" working again with our dear friend Rick Cunha as engineer. We're all looking forward to returning to the beautiful and comfy Rainbow Garage here in Los Angeles.

We also get to stop in to record a show for Roz Larman's Folk Scene on KPFK here in Los Angeles mid-month. We'll keep you posted about when the show will be broadcast and available for online listening.

Until next month, please visit us on our Facebook page - Come on out to a show and bring your friends! We all send you love and blessings,

Susie and the Hilonesome Boys

More recent reviews:

"Susie Glaze has one of the most beautiful voices in bluegrass and folk music today.  She performs a song straight from her heart and soul."    KPFK's FolkScene


"With her band the Hilonesome, her strong heartfelt voice makes each song an engaging story worthy of listening and savoring.  This concert recording captures the intimacy and powerful connections that can be made when an audience is in synch with the artist .. The band weaves an intricate web around Susie's vocals and the powerful stories are matched with Rob's dobro and Mark's fiddle.  Rob Carlson's instrumental skills on guitar and dobro are powerful propellants in the band's sound but he is also a talented songwriter with an ability to capture vignettes of time and place.  Susie Glaze and The Hilonesome Band may be based in California, but this album shows they're ready to take over the country!" California Bluegrass Association


"…like a finger sweep aside a lover's temple.  The ethereal beauty of Susie Glaze's acappela vocal reaches out across time from an Appalachian hollow.  In less than 30 seconds with an empathy that speaks volumes is the warning of the frailty of love, possibly won or loss."  Noel Barr, Random Lengths
 

"...with people like this to trust, my music will go on living, and soaring. And so will I."     Jean Ritchie

Dear Friends,

We welcome new friends to this newsletter, and we hope you're having a great summer so far.  Ours is off to a terrific start ~ as I write today the band and I are still flying high from a wonderful time at the Father's Day Festival in Grass Valley.  We send big thanks to everyone at the California Bluegrass Association for a great festival experience and especially to Dave Gooding for the booking, Lisa Burns for loaning us her wonderful bass, Joe Weed for filming us, Mike Melnyk for the incredible photography, Bill Evans for sitting in, KVMR's Evangeline Elston and Eric Rice for the radio interview and live on the air mini-set, and Brian Walker for the great sound support.  This is festival done right, folks!

We're moving on into the summer with a short break in performing.  Family vacations and album prep work will take up the month.  We have great shows lined up in August, including a return to Roz Larman's Folk Scene on KPFK here in Los Angeles.  We'll keep you posted about when the show will be broadcast and available for online listening.

We should also have on the way some nice video from Grass Valley thanks to Joe Weed at Highland Studios.  Stay tuned for that as well.

And the biggest thing on tap for us is the recording of the new album, at last!  We're really excited to put down these new songs we've been playing out now for over a year.  We'll be debuting our new songs as well as our versions of Ernest Troost's "Evangeline" and James Taylor's "Mill Worker" along with Jean Ritchie's beautiful ballad, "The Soldier," and other surprises.

Until next month, please visit us on Facebook and our website!  And until we see you, happy summer!

We all send you love and blessings,

Susie and the Hilonesome Boys

Hi Friends!

February was an amazing month for the Hiloneome Band as we joyfully toured Northern California and shared some awesome shows with Houston Jones, Joe Craven and the Kathy Kallick band.  We also traveled to Memphis to the International Folk Alliance and enjoyed our time there immensely.

March finds us traveling just a bit at the beginning of the month and then we slow down a bit and start working on our new album project here at home.  As I wrote last month, thanks to our friend Pattie Van Over on the camera and our own Mark Indictor as editor, we have five brand new videos posted from our show in December at the Grand Annex with Fur Dixon and Steve Werner. One of them is above ~ see them all, including our awesome finale with Fur and Steve on Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land" on   Our YouTube Channel.  

Melnyk_2-13-12_on_stageWe're starting planning work on the new recording ~ we're excited and chomping at the bit to get started in the studio.  So stay tuned for more good news! Please visit our website, drop us a line on Facebook, and plan to join us at a show.  Go to our "Upcoming Shows" page to get the low down on what's ahead!
Below are some incredible photos from our show at the Freight & Salvage last February from the amazing Mike Melnyk.


Melnyk_2-13-12_on_stage_fred_and_steveBlessings and Love from all of us in the Hilonesome Band...Steve Rankin, Mark Indictor, Fred Sanders and Rob Carlson...

"Evangeline" is Ernest Troost's song about mistaken identity, crime and heartbreak.

Hey Friends!

February finds the band traveling a lot, running to and fro! We've spent the last month developing our show for the tours coming up and we're excited to be polishing our current work while working on some great new songs from Rob Carlson, Ernest Troost and Tom Waits.

 

Our first show of the new year is here in town with our good friend Ernest Troost at his “Juke Joint Gang” songwriter’s show at the Talking Stick in Venice. We then hightail it out of town to join the great band Houston Jones at the lovely Palms Playhouse in Winters, California (with a special surprise guest!). We toodle on down the road later that weekend to join the San Francisco Bluegrass & Old Time Festival (http://www.sfbluegrass.org/) for their first weekend of what looks like a great line up this year. Concerts at Studio 55 Marin and The Freight & Salvage are our part of this festival of concerts over a 10 day period throughout San Francisco area. We share the stage with some remarkable musicians for those shows, including the wonderful Kathy Kallick band at the Freight & Salvage. AND, excitingly, our show at the Freight will be streamed live over a webcast to anyone who would like to sign on! Wherever you are in the world, you can tune in! Purchase online tickets for $3 any time the day of the show at www.concertwindow.com/thefreight. The show will not be taped, but you can watch it live in HD. Payment can be made using PayPal or a credit/debit cards.

We're excited also to be attending the International Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis this month where we showcase with some of the greatest in the business. Check out the Folk Alliance at http://www.folk.org/.

Thanks to our friend Pattie Van Over on the camera and our own Mark Indictor as editor, we have five brand new videos on our YouTube channel from our show in December at the Grand Annex with Fur Dixon and Steve Werner. See them at Our YouTube Channel. In fact, thanks to Kim Grant of KG Music Press, find a great group sing video from that show posted on No Depression's Los Angeles Page.

Speaking of No Depression, our friend Carl Gage did a great review of our last release "Live At The Freight & Salvage" there last fall:  Review of "Live At The Freight & Salvage" on No Depression

Stay tuned for more good news! Please visit our website, drop us a line on Facebook, and plan to join us at a show.

Blessings and Love,

 

Susie and The Hilonesome Band

Winter

"It is the time so well we love,
The time of all the year;
When winter calls with chilling breath,
For fireside and good cheer."


From Jean Ritchie's Winter Grace

 

 

 

Happy New Year!

 

Wow, isn't it weird to write "2012" and have it actually be a number of a year that we're living in? Having been raised in the '60s and '70s (I'm dating myself here) this kind of over the 2000 mark year is a little unbelievable!

 

But here we are! The Los Angeles weather has been spring-like and even though the days are short and the sun is low in the sky, we've been enjoying the early winter blue skies. We've also revved up the machine once again from our holiday hiatus and hibernation and are now busy planning for the upcoming year. There are some exciting things going on! We begin the year with the trio playing at the NAMM music industry convention in Anaheim for our friends at Shubb Capos. The rest of January will be a wood-shedding month as we prepare new songs and polish the act for a busy wintertime. February will find us returning to Ernest Troost’s “Juke Joint Gang” songwriter’s show at the Talking Stick in Venice and on the bill once again at the San Francisco Bluegrass and Old Time Festival, this time sharing the stage at the Freight & Salvage with the wonderful Kathy Kallick band as well as sharing a bill at the Palms Playhouse and Studio 55 Marin earlier that weekend with Houston Jones. Later that month we scurry off to Memphis for the International Folk Alliance Conference and some site seeing to Graceland and awesome barbeque! I can't wait to see the ducks at the famous Peabody hotel and visit Sun Records!

 

Other great things coming for 2012 include a possible short tour for me and Steve to the UK in April (we're working on it!), as well as a new band album we'll record this summer. We'll be presenting 4 new songs from Rob Carlson, along with works from Ernest Troost, Steve Earle, James Taylor and Jean Ritchie. And for those of you who've been waiting patiently, we're finally going to record Fred's great song "Rockin' In Your Grand Daddy's Chair" along with other surprises. We hope for a new CD release right around this time next year.

 

Thanks to our friend Pattie Van Over on the camera and our own Mark Indictor as editor, we have five brand new videos on our YouTube channel from our show in December at the Grand Annex with Fur Dixon and Steve Werner. See them at www.youtube.com/susieglaze And also check out a very cool article published in late December in Pasadena's The Rose Magazine written by our friend Michelle Mills called "Fiddling Around in Space" about Mark.

 

And if you didn't catch it, our friend Carl Gage did a great review of our last release "Live At The Freight & Salvage" in No Depression in September: Check it out at No Depression Review of "Live" CD by Carl Gage

 

So please stay tuned for more good news! Make sure you visit our website, drop us a line on Facebook, and plan to come see us at a show.

 

We send you all love, and best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year. To that end I'd like to quote Mark's New Year prayer: "May we all know the joys and sorrows of all living things as our own, and may our 2012 be filled with love, kindness, compassion, health, abundance, peace and blessings. Amen."

 

I couldn't say it any better.

Susie and The Hilonesome Band
Rob Carlson, Steve Rankin, Mark Indictor and Fred Sanders

Happy Dog Days Friends ~   

Beagles

 

Hope Summer is treating you well and you're having a fun time with family and friends, whether traveling or staying around home, and that you're enjoying some great music along the way.


We had the good fortune to catch Ernest Troost live at Westside Music here in Los Angeles on July 23rd, with his fine band.  And we just published a review of his great new CD, Ernest Troost Live at McCabe's on Folkworks.  Read it Here:  http://www.folkworks.org/reviews/cd-reviews


There's new band photography coming up with Andy Sheng of Otis & Lucy Photography.  Andy is known mainly for great animal photography, but we like his work with musicians also, so we're headed in with our brushes and combs and powder for some new snapshots of the band.  Check out Andy's work Here:  http://www.otisandlucy.com/  I think it's probably safe to predict that our Megs will end up in the shots. 

NEWMAN-GUITAR
Our July tour was FANTASTIC, and we have lots of people to thank ~ Rick Nagle at the Westside Theatre in Newman, Alan Molho of Landfall House concerts in the lovely Watsonville, Houston Jones with whom we shared an awesome night at Don Quixote's in Felton near Santa Cruz, Mike Russell at KKUP in San Jose, Michael Hall of the Northern California Bluegrass Society for his great interview, Lois Kellerman for her great interview and playing our music at KZSU at Stanford University, Steve Baker and Brian Walker at the Freight & Salvage, the great Bill Evans for sharing an awesome night of music with us there, Evangeline Elston, Kim Rogers at KVMR in Nevada City, Steve and Donna Friedman at Mama Llama's in Weaverville and finally Don Murphy and Gene Bach for bringing us back to the Scott Valley Bluegrass Festival for the second year in a row.  We especially thank Don and Sandra Murphy for opening their lovely ranch house to us for bunking and rehearsals!  We send special thanks also to our photographers on the road, Pattie Van Over who traveled with us and took video as well as marvelous shots of the venues and us, Mike Melnyk in Berkeley, and Charles Nelson in Etna in Scott Valley.  Their great work will go with us on the road for years to come.  We also give a shout out to Devon Leger for his promo work for us on the tour, Lisa at the Daily Staple in Berkeley for the posters, and Kathy Pomianek for helping with the booking at Don Quixote's.  And last but definitely not least, we're so grateful to Lisa Burns and Rick Glaze for use of their homes in the Bay area.  Everyone helped us so much along the way ~ thank you to our friends, old and new!  It was a trip we won't ever forget!


Our August will take us on the road for only one weekend, on August 12th when we join the Good Old Fashioned Bluegrass Festival near Hollister, California.  We're looking forward to this one!  Later this month we're playing for our first time at the lovely Levitt Pavilion in Pasadena, and a show with Brad Colerick at his songwriter's concert series, also in Pasadena, called Wine & Song.  And we need EVERYONE to come out for our FAR-West fundraiser at the Coffee Gallery in Altadena on August 27th, on a great lineup with Merlin Snider and Border Radio.  All proceeds will go to benefit the Folk Alliance Regional (FAR-West), so plan to come out for a great evening of music on August 27th! and help this great music organization.


We hope you'll visit our Music page and check out the new album Live at the Freight & Salvage.  In the meantime, happy trails! and we want to see you at a show this month! 


Love,
Susie

Out and About - July Tour!

Patties_Hilonesomes_Marquee
As I write, the band and I are eagerly preparing to leave Los Angeles in just about a week's time for destinations North!  We have a marvelous Summer 2011 Hilonesome Band Tour planned, and we're "scratchin' gravel" to get goin'!  We're excited about seeing friends old and new, playing some of our favorite places from last summer, and just getting out on the road together and having adventures!


The whole tour schedule is below and we hope that if you are in the areas of our shows you will come out and see us, and if you're not, please let your friends and family in those areas know that we're on the way and we have fantastic new music!  This year we're debuting four new songs from our own Rob Carlson, and one each from our So. Cal. buds Ernest Troost and Steve Werner.  We've also dusted off some of our oldies from the first solo album "Home On The Hill," (including the title cut from that album by our good friend Dan Jenkins), songs from Jean Ritchie's brilliant catalogue of mountain ballads and original writing, along with songs from our faves Steve Earle, Gillian Welch and the late great Hazel Dickens.  I'm particularly excited to be working with the great Bay area banjoist Bill Evans on his guest feature with us at Berkeley's Freight & Salvage on July 13th.  We'll be doing some banjo/voice material that is profound and beautiful.  We hope you can join us there!  We'll also have our new album "Live at The Freight & Salvage" with us on the road from last year's concert there.  You've gotta get your copy!


Please see our schedule below, and we really want to see 'yall out on the road! 

Here's to a great summer, and thanks for reading!

With love,
Susie
