Erin Sax, the “Country Time Lemonade Girl” at the age of 10, hits the road this Spring to promote the release of her solo album MERCY, produced by Clay Holley (Adele, Amy Winehouse), as well as to promote her single “Happy”, the title track for the new JUDD HIRSCH movie RED ROBIN and the premiere of her music video “Ridin” of “Dark Lover” on Peter Ulrich’s new release PAINTED CARAVAN.” She will be kicking off this tour in NYC May 2nd at the infamous Cutting Room with the world premiere of her new music video “Ridin”.

MERCY, produced by Clay Holley, who has also worked with Amy Winehouse, Adele and John Legend, is an homage to the 1970’s L.A. music scene that Sax was raised in. Growing up down the street from George Harrison, next door to the drug dealer for the Rolling Stones, and baby sat by the pianist for Jean Luc Ponty, set a tone for Sax’s life and MERCY is the theme music for it - melancholy, lyrical and yet redemptive. And in true 70’s fashion, the Vinyl Edition for the album will be released as well.

Also know as the lead singer of the NYC based band "Hands off My Sister", Sax has been called “bluesy and ornery”. Her music lives “somewhere between Bonnie Raitt and Merle Haggard (if there were such a love child)”. Her live performances have often been compared to a young Patty Smith. Her first album, GOOD GIRL garnered her opening slots on the road for country bad boy Robert Earl Keen, Marshall Crenshaw, and The Samples and Nathan Angelo.

This show is a fundraiser for The Diamond Collar/Keno's Rescue as featured on the TV show The Diamond Collar.

Chicago native Brad Cole moves his next NYC appearance to infamous Cutting Room for a very special show with full horn section and a slate of predominately new material “I’ve always wanted to get on stage with horns, so this will be a totally different experience for me and my fans.” It will be funky and fun and The Cutting Room is the perfect place for this.”
The songbook of acclaimed singer songwriter Brad Cole addresses the ups and downs of the human condition with both wit and raw insights. Stylistic comparisons put Cole somewhere between John Hiatt and John Mayer, but as a performer, Cole has uniquely fused a rootsy folk sensibility with old school Bossa and R&B. With Cole’s passionate delivery the sound is moving, unexpected and yet familiar.
The last 18 months have been fruitful for Cole, releasing his 3rd album Down The Line, playing over 100 shows and sharing the stage with great artists like Shovels and Rope, Dan Navarro, Ellis Paul, Chris Stapleton and Muriel Anderson.
Down The Line was recorded in Nashville and captures a soulful Americana sound. Compared to Cole’s previous albums, Exile (2010) and Highway 200 (2008), Down The Line is a quiet record, abundant with space. “I think it’s a reflection of being able to empty a lot of the noise from my head and run directly with what my muse was giving me,” says Cole. “It addresses the emotions of being uprooted and unstable, but somehow a message of hope prevails.” Roots Music Reports charted “Down The Line” as one of the “Top 20 Roots/Country Americana albums for 2013.
