CD Giveaway Contest: Tim Mahoney, "Peace of Winter"

Tim Mahoney, "Peace of Winter"

Tim Mahoney was a contestant on Adam Levine’s team during the inaugural season of NBC’s The Voice. However, the musician is branching off into an unexpected direction this holiday season, with an instrumental-only EP, Peace of Winter: Live at MacPhail.

“I've always wanted to make something like this. I've been playing piano for years; I learned by ear,” Mahoney explains of his foray into an instrumental direction. “I don't even really think of myself as a player, I just really love the raw simplistic sound of the piano.“

The six-song EP was recorded live for an intimate audience, using a nine-foot Steinway Grand at Antonello Hall located in the MacPhail Center for Music. Mahoney, who teaches rock camps at MacPhail, describes the locale as “Just a very cool space overlooking Minneapolis…It was inspiring.”

CD Giveaway Contest: Jacob & the Good People, "Rotten"

Jacob & the Good People, "Rotten"

Jacob & the Good People create a velvety mixture of hip-hop and electronica on their newest EP, Rotten.

Recorded in Charlotte, NC at 3in1 studios, this EP brings to life what it means to live in Atlanta. “This disc has a faux urban/electronic vice that the previous EP didn’t have,” singer Blazer, says. “It’s a little goofy and intentional.” After moving to Atlanta and spending countless days and nights touring and playing the city, Blazer came to realize that the city had changed him and consequently, his music as well. “This EP in comparison to the last has a very ‘I moved to Atlanta’ vibe,” he says.

CD Giveaway Contest: Sarah Lou Richards, "The Woman Behind the Curtain"

Sarah Lou Richards, "The Woman Behind the Curtain"

Americana artist Sarah Lou Richards released her third album, The Woman Behind the Curtain, on November 18th. It marks her first time recording with a full band. The basic elements of her 2010 debut (produced by Henry Paul, frontman for the '90s multi-platinum country band BlackHawk), Ruby Red Shoes — an album that combined sharp, observational songwriting with the hooks of pop music and the twang of country — are still intact, but they've become part of a larger, louder puzzle.

"One of my favorite songs here is a track called 'Nothing Left,' which is about giving all you have until there's nothing left to give," says Richards, a road warrior who's spent the past four years touring. "That's where I'm at in my career right now. I'm stretching the rubber band as far as it'll go. With this new album, I knew it was time to make a bigger sound."
