After winning the grand prize on Star Search in 1993, Beth Hart’s career began to take flight. She went on to be the lead in an off Broadway musical, record with icons like Les Paul and Slash and more importantly, earn the respect of the great blues/rockers that came before her.

Buzz Media Presented The Greenhorns and The Dandy Warhols Live @ The Village

The Greenhorns

The Greenhorns

After taking a small break in 2002, The Greenhornes are back and better than ever. Buzz Media brought the guys in for a live session on December 6th to highlight Four Stars, the newest album from this Cincinnati based band. But the boys have been busy since their hiatus. Collaborating with friends Jack White and Brendan Benson, Lawrence and Keeler formed The Raconteurs who have been selling out venues all across America.

The Dandy Warhols

In addition to The Greenhornes, The Dandy Warhols joined The Buzz Media roster later in the week, and don’t be fooled into thinking that a clever name is all that sets these musicians apart from the crowd. This group of Portland natives has plenty of pizzazz to stand out amongst a sea of wannabes. Founded in the early 90’s, The Warhols first gained momentum in Europe and after a brilliant video directed by David LaChapelle, the band gained the favor of the American listener. Nic Harcourt produced while Ghian Wright engineered and Scott Smith and Nelson Lugo assisted.

“Stand Up” to Sugarland

Ever since they hit the music scene in 2004, country duo Sugarland has been speedily gaining fans due to their beautiful vocals, moving lyrics and unparalleled melodies. The group was asked to sing their new song “Stand Up” as a tribute on the “CNN Heroes” special which aired Thanksgiving night. Producer/engineer Chip Matthews mixed the song with assistant Nelson Lugo in Studio B.

Underworld Live @ The Village – KCRW Eclectic Morning

On November 1st, Studio A was occupied by British electro band, Underworld who rocked the airwaves on Morning Becomes Eclectic. In addition to welcoming the usual array of talented indie bands brought to us by KCRW, listeners were treated to a live performance from Joe Frank in Studio D. This American radio icon is best known for his zany, philosophical monologues and musings, but Joe’s first paying job was with NPR’s “All Things Considered”. He then relocated to the West Coast in 1986 to begin, “Joe Frank: Work in Progress”. Fans and familiars alike were touched by this sold out performance hosted by KCRW.

Music Gets Personal with The Live Buzz (Today Pure Volume)

This month, The Village had the pleasure of hosting over 6 sessions with “The Live Buzz”, a newly launched music video site through Buzz Media. Nic Harcourt, formerly of KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, joined forces with Buzz to breathe new life into the way music lovers watch internet videos. When asked how Live Buzz is different than similar sites, Harcourt says, “we’re getting up close in personal in the way we’re shooting sessions. You’re feeling like you’re closer to the music, and I haven’t felt that in anything that I’ve seen before.” In November alone, Buzz recorded and documented performances by Darker My Love, Starz, Banda De Touristas, Sean Lennon, Bear Hands and Black Angels in various studios around The Village. We are looking forward to many more.
