SUN RISES IN MEMPHIS
Sun Studio Showcases New Artists in Web Video Show
The Legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee is announcing the launch of SUN STUDIO SESSIONS, a web video series featuring today's rising stars in the music world, performing live in the historic studio where Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and many other greats recorded their first hits.
New artists and songs will be introduced every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, beginning Monday, April 7, and continuing throughout the year.
Sun Studio Sessions are produced by music blogger Jeff Davidson (of Earvolution/BlogCritics) who says: "This is just so different and... well, cool! The artists coming here get goosebumps from all the history in this room, and you can feel the juice in their performances. And it's the same raw and pure sound Sun Studio made epic in the 1950's."
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals will kick off the first Session, with performances scheduled in the coming days and weeks by Amber Rubarth, Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles, Amy LaVere, David Ford, Five Times August, and Backyard Tire Fire. You can view Sun Studio Sessions on SunStudioSessions.com with new webisodes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
