Burnell Pines excellent new LP ‘Till The Day I Die’ is available on Vinyl/CD right now (and at the show) via The Royal Potato Family!


A bearded man with a guitar slung on his back and a hard-drive tucked under his arm ambles along the two lane blacktops of the maple-thick Catskills. He drops in on musician friends, singing songs of love, longing, and full-hearted passion, tunes drawing on folk, funk and the enduring rock ’n’ roll spirit of the region. These friends–-stage and studio vets all–-help craft an album that’s warm as a wood stove, cool as a mountain stream, and rocking as a hailstorm on a tin roof. The man is Burnell Pines, aka singer-songwriter Jeremy Bernstein, and the album is Till the Day I Die, a valentine to life in the land where The Band, Van Morrison, and Bob Dylan once made seminal music. Burnell taps directly into that tradition with co-producer/drummer Justin Guip, Levon Helm’s three-time Grammy winning producer and right hand man. Other musical compadres include acclaimed keyboardist Marco Benevento, hitmaker Rachael Yamagata, and drummers Joe Magistro (The Black Crowes) and Robert Burke (Toshi Reagon).

The Sweet Clementines are ALSO on the heels of an excellent new release (sorry to make you choose) ‘Lake Victoria’ which is avail now: https://thesweetclementines.bandcamp.com/

The Sweet Clementines have been trying for years to describe their literate, musically complex sound: “Earthy (sm)art pop,” “Quaint, Repressed Victorian Jam Rock.” “Bubblegum and borscht,” said the Chronogram. “Smart fun for smart people,” Said Sirius Disorder. “Songs and instrumentation sparkling with light bending lustre and charm,” said WKZE, 98.1 FM.
