    Biography

    William Reese Owsley III was an American singer and songwriter. His two solo albums won critical acclaim and his debut album was nominated for a Grammy. He was a record producer, a recording engineer and the guitarist in Amy Grant’s touring band. Owsley began playing guitar at age 9 and was a fan off Kiss, Todd Rundgren and could play Eddie Van Halen and Steve Morse licks note for note. In his later years he became more influenced by the Beatles, Chet Atkins, Jimi Hendrix and Robert Johnson. Prior to developing his own band and solo work, Owsley was in the Judson Spence band and appeared in several of his MTV videos which landed him 14 label offers when living in Nashville in the mid-1980s. He declined an offer to become Amy Grant’s touring guitarist in the late 80s, encouraged by Nashville producer Scott Siman to pursue his own career at the time. Together with Millard Powers, he founded the power pop group, The Semantics with Jody Spence and Zac Starkey (Ringo’s son). The band could not find it’s footing in the US and were eventually dropped. Afterwards, Owsley agreed to tour with Amy Grant as her guitarist and did so for 16 years straight until his death. Through his work with Grant and producer Mutt Lange, he was introduced to Shania Twain. Over the years, he would tour with her as guitarist and harmony singer, with appearances on many national tv shows and awards programs. During the 1990s he also worked with Vince Gill, the Neville Brothers, Vanessa L. Williams and Wynonna to name a few. With the money he made on tour with Grant and Twain he installed a studio in his home in 1998 which led to the release of his self-titled solo album distributed by Not Lame Recordings. Doug Morris of Universal picked it up and proposed it be re-recorded but Owsley insisted it simply needed to be remixed by Tom Lord-Alge, Bob Clearmountain or Andy Wallace. Tom Lord-Alge signed on and the “Owsley” album got re-released on March 23, 1999 on Giant Records. Many of the songs on the album are about Anniston, Alabama, where he was born and lived until 21. The first single didn’t catch on, but “I’m Alright” later scored a minor hit. Recorded almost entirely on a vintage Studer A-80 (2-inch 16 track tape machine) in his home studio in Nashville, it garnered him a Grammy Award nomination for Best Engineered Album. The album would be labeled one of the best pop records of the 1990s. During the ensuing tour, he among others joined the Pat McGee Band, and Fountains of Wayne, whose bassist Adam Schlesinger Owsley recorded with in later years. The 2000s were dominated by session work as a backing guitarist, mandolin player, bassist and keyboardist. He among others recorded with Faith Hill, Michael McDonald, Natalie Grant, David Phelps, James Ingram, Rodney Crowell, and Kenny Loggins. Owsley tragically took his own life on April 30, 2010. In 2011 Vince Gill released the song, “Threaten Me With Heaven,” which was co-written by Owsley and Amy Grant. It was nominated for the 2012 Grammy Awards in the category of Best Country Song, which according to Gill is “a lasting tribute to Owsley” and was performed at his funeral.

    Biography

    The Dresden Dolls are an American musical duo from Boston. Formed in 2000 the band consists of Amanda Palmer (lead vocals, piano, keyboards, harmonica and ukulele) and Brian Viglione (drums, percussion, guitar, bass and backing vocals). The Dresden Dolls are a dark cabaret band. Their piano-and-drum focused rock music, incorporated into alternative rock song structures with piano replacing rhythm guitar has seen them be categorized as piano rock. Palmer has cited her influences as Laurie Anderson, Kate Bush, Bauhaus, The Cure, Robyn Hitchcock and Nick Cave to name a few. After forming in 2000, the duo gained a cult following as they would wear dramatic make-up and fancy clothing that pushed their cabaret/theater aesthetic. They encouraged fans to become involved in their shows in which performance art became integral to their performances. Palmer says the band name was “inspired by a combination of things,” including the firebombing of Dresden, Germany, and the porcelain dolls that were a hallmark of pre-war Dresden industry; an early song of the same name by The Fall; and a reference to the V.C. Andrews novel “Flowers In The Attic,” where the protagonists are called “the Dresden Dolls.” Their self-titled debut album was released in 2003, recorded and produced by Martin Bisi (Swans, Sonic Youth) at the Old American Can Factory in Brooklyn after the band were signed to Roadrunner Records by David Bason. Two sings of the album ranked in the Triple J Hottest 100 in 2004. In 2003 they were crowned the winners of Boston’s long running WBCN Rock & Roll Rumble. In 2005 the duo supported Nine Inch Nails on tour. Their second studio album, “Yes Virginia,” was released on April 18, 2006. Over the summer of that year, the duo performed at South By Southwest, Bonnaroo, Britain’s Reading and Leeds Festivals, and Lollapalooza, in addition to touring with Panic! At the Disco as their opening act. On her “There Will Be No Intermission” Tour in 2019, Palmer announced that the Dresden Dolls will be recording and releasing a new album in 2020.

    Biography

    Machine Head is an American heavy metal band from Oakland formed in 1991 by vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn and bassist Adam Duce. They are considered one of the pioneering bands in the new wave of American heavy metal and part of the second wave of thrash metal bands from the 1990s. Flynn and Duce recruited guitarist Logan Mader and drummer Tony Costanza to form the band. They recorded a demo in a friend’s bedroom for $800. An executive from Roadrunner listened to the demo and signed the band to the label. They entered Fantasy Studios in Berkeley to record their debut album, “Burn My Eyes,” which showcased a groove metal and thrash approach similar to bands like Pantera and Exhorder. Not long into production, Costanza left the band and was replaced by Chris Kontos. Most of the songs on the album were written by Flynn and Duce during the time Flynn was not in the band, about being “pissed off” from his previous struggles in the band Vio-lence, as well as both of their battles with drugs. Produced by Colin Richardson, the album was released on August 9, 1994. The album shipped 400,000 copies worldwide, becoming Roadrunner’s best-selling debut album. Allmusic reviewer John Franck stated, “Burn My Eyes is a bone-shattering exercise in brutality.” Not long after the debut was released, they started touring heavily in support of the album, opening for Slayer in Europe in the latter half of 1994, a tour which ended with their own headline show at the London Astoria. Following the success of the support tour, the band returned to Europe for a headline tour in early 1995, performing in the same venues they opened for Slayer. The band returned to Europe for the summer festival season but Kontos refused to tour so Walter Ryan was used for festival dates. Kontos was eventually fired and moved on to play with Testament, and was replaced by Dave McClain. The band’s first four albums earned them a growing fan base in Europe, however the band would not find success in the US until later releases. Machine Head has released nine studio albums, two live albums, one video album, 13 singles and 15 music videos. Four of the band’s studio albums have been certified silver in the UK, and the band’s highest peak on the Billboard 200 came with Bloodstone & Diamonds at number 21. As of 2013, the band has sold over three million records worldwide. The band’s current line up consists of Flynn, bassist Jared MacEachern, guitarist Wacław Kiełtyka and drummer Matt Alston. Duce, guitarists Logan Mader, Ahrue Luster, and Phil Demmel, and drummers Tony Costanza, Chris Kontos and Dave McClain are former members. Mader and Kontos are currently touring with the band as part of the 25th anniversary for it’s first album, “Burn My Eyes (1994).”
