In Memory of Chris Porter: Andrea Juarez #1704


Andrea Juarez never planned to release an album, but it seemed like the best way to honor her fiance, Chris Porter, who passed away on tour October 2016, when their van was rear-ended on the interstate. Mitchell Vandenburg also was killed, and Adam Nurre miraculously survived the horrific wreck. Porter was mostly finished with tracking his album, Don’t Go Baby It’s Gonna Get Weird Without You, which he had recorded in marathon sessions with Will Johnson (Centro-Matic) producing, and Shonna Tucker (Pegi Young, Drive By Truckers) and John Calvin Abney (Solo, John Moreland) with whom he had toured. Bonnie Whitmore hosted a memorial concert to raise the rest of the funds to finish the record, which will be released on the anniversary.

Sally Jaye #1703

Sally Jaye launched Cafe Rooster Records with a legendary guerrilla party at AmericanaFest 2016 in Nashville, TN. The cooperative record label began with friend and co-founder, Darrin Bradbury’s album, Elmwood Park, quickly adding a vinyl release of Jaye’s band, Ladies Gun Club, a vinyl re-issue of her solo album, Amarillo, and a digital release of fellow co-founder Brian Wright’s album, The Sneak Ups. Within the first year, Cafe Rooster also released their first two albums “outside” the family, Jon Latham’s acclaimed Lifers and a collaborative record, Strange Freedom: Songs of Love and Protest, to benefit Planned Parenthood. Keeping with the DIY ethos of the artists, the label promotes limited edition, hand-made art, rather than typical merch. With a revived touring schedule of her own (playing in Ojai, CA, and Los Angeles this week), Jaye may be the busiest record label executive in the business.

Boo Ray #1702


Boo Ray recently released Sea of Lights on vinyl, the debut release from Kindercore record pressing in Athens, GA. With a fresh mastering for vinyl and successful showcase at AmericanaFest 2017, Boo Ray and his band continue to tour the US with his distinct brand of Jerry Reed-inspired rock and roll. He’s a heckuva picker and performer and just as laid back and easy-going as you could imagine, laughing at his own jokes because they’re funny.
