PARLOUR PICK’NS #13 - Rebelle Road in Nashville, TN at AmericanaFest!! - In their 9th year of touring, The Black Lillies stopped by our Rebelle 'on the road' House to play a tune called “Out Of The Blue” from their 5th album “Stranger To Me”. “Last year when we were getting ready to make a new record, one of our favorite bars in Bellingham, WA, The Green Frog Tavern was closing down. I was just thinking about the stories that get tied up in the life of a bar and the stories that are connected to it and the people and things that pass and things that go on."
Parlour Pick’ns is a video spotlight series of intimate couch concerts featuring local and touring bands recorded live in the Rebelle Road lo-fi listening den. Follow us on YouTube
Connecting the Vibrant Present & Past of California Country
By Nikki O'Neill - Guitar Girl Magazine
‘‘We need a community. We need our own festivals. We need a touring road. We need to have a place.’’
These are the words of Adrienne Isom, KP Hawthorn and Karen Rappaport McHugh
who make up Rebelle Road, a powerhouse entity dedicated to championing and
showcasing California country and Americana artists, especially women. They are
combining their longtime experiences in music marketing, festival production, visual
presentation and life as touring artists and record label owners. Through artist
showcases, boutique festivals, industry panels and an upcoming record label, podcast
and documentary, they’re making their presence known at Americana Fest, SXSW and
the music scene in their hometown of Los Angeles.
California is one of the epicenters of country music, and casual fans might know of the
50's Bakersfield sound and the 70's country rock artists coming out of Laurel Canyon.
But the twang of the sunshine state has a rich and fascinating history that goes further
back. Among its pioneers you’ll find female artists like Rose Maddox, a charismatic
singer-songwriter/fiddle player who was a leading figure of the west coast scene in the
40's. Also, Hollywood created the singing cowboy and the outfits through its movies.
As we meet up with Rebelle Road in LA, their passion for Cali country's colorful, eclectic
and rebellious present and past is unmistakable.
THE PALOMINO RIDES AGAIN BENEFIT CONCERT —
The amazing reviews from Variety, Los Angeles Times, LA Daily News, No Depression and Pollstar have captured this magical night perfectly!
The spirit of community, the joyous reunion of friends, and the jaw-dropping California country music was overwhelming. It has been an honor to work beside so many people who selflessly gave their time and energy to raise money for the Valley Relics Museum to ensure that this part of music history isn’t forgotten.
So much gratitude to Jed hilly and Danna Strong for giving us a platform to kick it off right during AmericanaFest.
