Nations Largest Country Music Talent Competition Names Olson Brothers Best Songwriters


Olympia, WA (PRWEB) January 02, 2014

The largest and longest-running country music talent search in the nation, the Texaco Country Showdown, has named the Olson Brothers of Olympia, WA, the Grand Prize Winners in a songwriting competition to find the best independent country music songwriter in the United States. Hundreds of musicians competed, tens of thousands of votes were counted and a panel of country music experts made the final decision to name the Olson Brothers song, Sunrise, as the Grand Champion. Brothers Luke Olson, 20, and Isaac Olson, 22, have earned $ 5,000 as well as a trip to be introduced at the Nashvilles 32nd annual Texaco Country Showdown and consult with professionals in the music industry.

We have grown up doing everything together and are very passionate about music, said Luke Olson. We are thrilled to bring the national award to Washington.

The Texaco Country Showdown is America’s largest Country music talent show. It’s designed to find the most promising country music talent in the nation and to give these performers a chance to launch their professional music careers. Songwriting competitors submit a recording of their song to the Showdown website, and the top five songs chosen by the public are evaluated by a panel of Nashville music professionals, and they choose a monthly winner. Those winning songs advance to a final competition round each November, where an esteemed panel of songwriting greats chooses the Grand Prize Winner.

Luke a business and music major at Pacific Lutheran University (PLU) in Tacoma, is the bands lead singer and plays the acoustic guitar, electric guitar, piano, and records the bands music. Isaac is an engineering major at Washington State University in Pullman, plays the mandolin, acoustic guitar, and writes songs, also sings lead vocals, and promotes for the band. They began writing songs together and performing as The Olson Brothers in 2011. After adding Nate Collins on Bass and James Blackburn on drums, the Olson Bros Band began playing live shows across the state in 2013.

The Olsons winning song, Sunrise, was inspired by views of Mt. Rainier from the highway during Lukes 6 a.m. commute to Tacoma from Olympia each morning. One morning as I was getting so bogged down by my classes and homework, and I was just in a terrible mood and way behind. I looked outside my car and saw the most beautiful sunrise I had ever seen in my life, with Mt. Rainier in the background. The sight was the most breathtaking thing I had ever beheld, and it was one of those moments where it puts thing in perspective. I was so inspired by the sight that I skipped class that morning to watch the rest of the sunrise, and thats where came up with the idea and wrote a chunk of the song.

Sunrise helped The Olson Brothers to win the Battle of the Bands at Capital Lakefair in 2013, and the song went on to win the Texaco Country Showdown for the month of July, and the national songwriting championship at years end.

The Olson Brothers Band will continue to play shows all over Washington State, including one at The Brick in Roslyn, WA on Jan. 3. Registration for the free admission event is available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/539159. They and plan to record songs at a professional studio while they are in Nashville for the Texaco Country Showdown Jan. 16, and they hope to release their first professionally-recorded album in 2014.

Wed like to thank our family, friends, and fans for taking the time to vote for our song, and for always believing in us, said Isaac Olson. For now, we are gonna celebrate. Were goin to Nashville! said Luke.

King Baldwin Drops First Album, Music for Unsafe Sex


(Vocus/PRWEB) May 20, 2011

King Baldwin, an indie rock band based in San Francisco, has just put out their first album, Music for Unsafe Sex. The title reflects how the tracks feel: funky, dark and naughty. Its now available for listening pleasure on iTunes, Amazon, or through links on the bands website at http://www.kingbaldwin.com/.

King Baldwins core members include Alexander Eccles, lead singer, and Gabe Turow, Afro-beat percussionist and maker of ceramic instruments. Eccles and Turow wanted to make an album that was fresh, creative, and (lacking anything resembling a budget) cheap.

Music for Unsafe Sex includes songs like Ron Jeremy, a minimalist exploration of the special education teacher and classical pianist who repeatedly rose to become the legendary adult film superstar. There is also a song about being cryogenically frozen, a morality piece about a naughty secretary, and a mantra-like tune named In the Evening that features Turow playing an electric, ceramic kalimba he made himself.

The album also contains “Mega Man” (a song about the video game hero with lyrics the band says they struggled with to make “not too stupid”), an Ethiopian horror-funk tribute to Dawn of the Dead, an experimental tune called Muted-Low Lullaby and a bluesy closing number named Muse, which Eccles said lyrically addresses the consternation of what-the-hell genre I should write in.

Picking a genre is always tricky for King Baldwin. It is the most cohesive album Ive ever made, said Eccles. But its still all over the place.

In line with their zero-cost approach, they didnt use an expensive studio. Instead, they just used their crappy microphones in a homegrown studio in their Ocean Beach apartment. They also passed files through email. They sent their tracks to various musicians, like bassist Jared Milos, who would track over them and return their tracks in email.

Something that bears a true imprint is usually made by an amateur. Its a labor of love, not whatever a label wants you do, said Eccles. Besides, unless youre Radiohead, people arent going to be listening for the fidelity of the high hat or anything.

Tackling the album design was challenging, as Eccles and Turow wanted something that referenced the glaring title while remaining somehow classy and subtle. The final image, created by Pixar’s Liz Seibert, features the iconic “King Baldwin” figure, this time in silhouette and holding a cartoonish lit bomb.
