City and Colour
City and Colour, aka world-renowned singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green, has trave
rsed the
globe on tour, collected scores of accolades and released numerous successful alb
ums. Most recently,
he released his acclaimed fifth studio record,
If I Should Go Before You
, which debuted at #16 on the
Billboard 200 Chart, #1 in Canada (his third consecutive #1 album) and
#5 in Australia. For the making of
the record, Dallas turned to his trusted touring band: Jack Lawrence (The Raco
nteurs, Dead Weather) on
bass, Dante Schwebel (Spanish Gold, Dan Auerbach) on guitar, Doug MacGrego
r (Constantines) on
drums and Matt Kelly on pedal steel guitar and keys. Of the album, Green c

Anybody who has
seen us play will understand that this is the best representation of what we do
live that we have ever
recorded.

Greyhounds
As Greyhounds, guitarist Andrew Trube and keyboardist Anthony Farrell have been making music and touring for 15 years, refining and developing a sound Trube calls "Hall and Oates meet ZZ Top." The band also has long ties to Memphis, home of the soul that inspires them.
Ardent Music, the independent record label based out of legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, expects to build on the fanbase the band has developed both on the road and as a staple of the Austin music scene. Label director Reed Turchi says, "We committed to three albums not only because we believe in these guys, not only because they're great musicians and songwriters, but because they've been incredibly prolific." "We're always writing," Trube says. "We've got songs for eight albums."

Ardent has had a long and productive relationship with Texas music: Studio C was designed for ZZ Top, which called Ardent Studios home for many years, and Stevie Ray and Jimmy Vaughan recorded Family Style in the famous brick building on Madison Avenue.

The first 'hounds out of the gate will be Accumulator, scheduled for a March 2014 release. The album will combine cream-of-the-crop tunes the band's devoted followers pass along to the uninitiated with new, previously-unreleased tracks.

When they aren't touring and recording as Greyhounds, Trube and Farrell keep busy as members of JJ Grey and Mofro, playing 200 dates a year, and writing songs for a variety of other musicians, including Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks.
