The night is still young for BIG GIGANTIC, one of the most celebrated acts in live music right now. They have announced they will return to the road on their “Touch The Sky Tour,” their next headlining road trek in 2014 in support of their fifth studio album THE NIGHT IS YOUNG out now.

The month-long tour launches on October 8 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, OH right after BIG GIGANTIC performs with Bassnectar at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City. The pair mostly keeps east of the Mississippi, making stops in such markets as Grand Rapids, St. Louis, Kansas City, Urbana, IL, Little Rock, Memphis, Birmingham, Chattanooga, Philadelphia, Detroit, Atlanta and more. Named after The Night Is Young album cut “Touch the Sky”—an electro-leaning dance track drizzled with jazzy sax tones courtesy of BIG GIGANTIC’s Dominic Lalli and live drums per Jeremy Salken—the tour will capture BIG GIGANTIC’s explosive live show at every stop. Sandwiched between their headlining dates will also be four shows featuring BIG GIGANTIC supporting their good friend and recent Bonnaroo Superjam collaborator Skrillex in Columbus, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Amherst, MA.

Prior to the “Touch The Sky Tour,” BIG GIGANTIC will host “ROWDYTOWN III,” their third annual hometown show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado.  Set for Friday, September 26 and Saturday, September 27, “ROWDYTOWN III” will feature different support lineups for each night, offering fans an even bigger party this year with its expansion to two days. Supporting BIG GIGANTIC on Friday, September 26 will be Brooklyn-based electro-house trio Savoy, Canadian electronic music duo DVBBS, Kansas-based brother duo The Floozies and two tweener sets from producer/DJ Trippy Turtle; Saturday’s lineup will feature the newly reunited Toronto trio The New Deal, hip-hop duo Caked Up, Atlanta-based electronic producer He Robust and another two tweener sets from Trippy Turtle. Members of THE MOTET, the band that Dominic Lalli started in and is considered Colorado “family,” will join BIG GIGANTIC both nights to create a full live band and special experience.

@MFWERadio Interview: Tiara Thomas Discuss New Single | Teases Debut Album | & More

A quick click online yields this succinct definition of the word original: “Not dependent on other people’s ideas; inventive and unusual.” For those seeking the musical equivalent of that, you need look no further than Tiara Thomas. Thomas first vaulted into national consciousness in 2013 when she co-wrote, co-produced and appeared on Wale’s hit single “Bad.” Now the multi-talented newcomer—singer, rapper, songwriter, musician, producer—brings that formidable skill set to the forefront on her Division 1/Interscope Geffen A&M debut album The Bad Influence. Leading the charge: the project’s feisty first single “One Night.” Checkout David Duane’s latest – new interview with Tiara to discuss Tiara’s new single and more:

@MFWERadio Interview: Luke James Chats Debut Album | Creative Direction | & More

Luke-James-Grey-Henley-Shadow

 

And just who is Luke James?

He’s a singer/songwriter who truly embodies the honesty and fresh, organic soulfulness that’s been in relatively short supply of late in contemporary music. Now that sounds like a pretty tall order for a newcomer to fulfill. However, the New Orleans native is very much up to the task. In fact, you’ve no doubt heard his work: he co-wrote Chris Brown’s “Crawl” and has penned songs for Justin Bieber (“That Should Be Me”) and Britney Spears (“Kill The Lights”), among others. And his growing fan base includes none other than Beyoncé, who selected James to appear in her “Run the World” video. James’ real-deal approach to music and—more important—the craft of singing are the main attractions on his upcoming pre album and album of the same name: “Made to Love.” Both mark the singer/songwriter’s debut on Mercury/Island Def Jam via New Age Rock Star Records (NARS), the label helmed by award-winning producer Danja (Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake, Keri Hilson) and long-time collaborator / mixing engineer Marcella “Ms Lago” Araica (Madonna, Pink, Timbaland). Now Luke James has released his debut-self titled album, “Luke” and currently touring to promote the album. In this recent interview with David Duane, James talks about his success as a recording artist and what’s next with him.

@MFWERadio #FaceTimeWithTheStars: Sebastian Mikael (Premiere Show)

Welcome to #FaceTimeWithTheStars we welcome R&B/Soul Recording Artist, Sebastian Mikael. His best known for his hit single “Last Night” featuring Wale. Having released his debut album, “Speechless”, Sebastian has been touring and promoting the album non-stop. Now wrapping up his new album set later this year – David Duane got a chance to discuss the success of the first album and more. Check It Out !

Sebastian Mikael

Before long, Sebastian Mikael’s newfound passion led him to clocking long hours at Swedish recording studios, singing hooks for rappers and teaming up with a local producer to form a production team. But while the duo’s initial recordings generated a lot of online buzz, Sebastian Mikael was eager to strike out on his own. “I saw the initial potential of the work we were doing,” he says, “but I wasn’t getting a shot at doing my own songs. Plus, they are not as open-minded about music in Sweden as they are in the U.S.”

Feeling a glass ceiling approaching in Sweden, Sebastian Mikael set his sights on America and enrolled at California’s Musicians Institute to study audio engineering in 2008. After living in California for two years, he relocated to Boston in 2010 to attend Berklee College of Music. While a student at Berklee, Sebastian was signed by Slip-N-Slide Records CEO Ted Lucas and in late 2011 he released his first mixtape, J’Adore. As Sebastian stays on the road to promote the new single, he is also putting the final touches to his hotly anticipated forthcoming full-length debut album “Speechless” due out in late 2013 in a joint venture between Slip-N-Slide Records and Caroline/Capitol Records. During the recording process, he has collaborated with some of the finest producers and songwriters in the business, including Jim Jonsin and Rico Love.
