Jeremiah Birnbaum's Righteous Devils, everyBoy, Band of Outsiders, The Rebel Factory Jeremiah Birnbaum's Righteous Devils, everyBoy, Band of Outsiders, The Rebel Factory Spike Hill 03/13/2013 08:00 PM EDT Jeremiah Birnbaum's Righteous Devils A Jersey boy with a Southern heart, Jeremiah Birnbaum is a “rootsy, soulful troubadour” (Time Out, London) whose sweet, gritty voice and skillful, effortless guitar work makes you believe every word he sings, whether about sunshine or blood. The son of a rabbi and an architect, Jeremiah grew up in the all-American town of Maplewood, New Jersey, with his parents' LP records at hand and a great encouragement to be who he wanted to be. Thusly armed, by age 17, he was working in New York City recording studios and making his own music by any means necessary. Since then, traveling well beyond his home turf, Jeremiah has created music and (mis)adventure along the way, gathering ample fuel for stories told with voice and expressive picking. A dedicated songsmith, Jeremiah writes new tunes weekly, a practice honed through longtime attendance at the storied Jack Hardy Songwriters' Exchange in New York. When not alone onstage with his acoustic, Jeremiah fronts several New York rock and roll bands, and accompanies many other artists with his trademark searing Telecaster and bottleneck slide, as well as on banjo, mandolin and ukulele. Jeremiah plays regularly at such Manhattan venues as The Living Room, Mercury Lounge, Rockwood Music Hall, and Joe's Pub. He's appeared at major music festivals including CMJ and SXSW, and is often sighted onstage in Austin, Texas. Jeremiah has also garnered opening slots for many acclaimed acts, including Suzanne Vega, Heartless Bastards, Greensky Bluegrass, Will Kimbrough, Umphrey's McGee, and the late Levon Helm. "Birnbaum's music, painted with melodic vocals, rolling beats, chiming guitar and lush piano, recalls the sound of The Band as well as more contemporary alt. country artists like the seminal Uncle Tupelo and always-stellar Lucinda Williams." Nate Schweber, Patch.com everyBoy Less than a year since the national release of his debut The Last La-La's, NYC's Bruce Nathan, performing as everyBoy, returns with his second record Parachute Mind, due from Catlick Records on July 5th, 2011. Recorded in a year that marked his first period of uninterrupted dedication to music, Parachute Mind echoes the messages of George Harrison with themes of compassion, hope, and light overcoming darkness coupled with vocals that iTunes noted "bring early Neil Young and Jeff Tweedy to mind." Band of Outsiders Formed in NYC's East Village in 1980, Band of Outsiders was active on the NYC club scene and played throughout the northeast for most of the decade. Tracks produced by Ivan Kral resulted in UK and France releases, and the band toured and/or recorded in UK/Europe in '84, '85. '87. The group's November 1988 farewell show at CBGB, with Nikki Sudden sitting in, became the live album "Armistice Day". Except for a one-off set in 1999 (for a CBGB 25th anniversary date with Fleshtones and Certain General), the band was dormant for 20 years, until an October 2008 benefit event inspired a reunion. Since then the band has stayed together, playing, writing and recording. Member chronology: Marc Jeffrey (guitar, vocals) 1980-88, 1999, 2008-present.

“EVERYBOY, “Parachute Mind” (Catlick) ✰✰✰1⁄2 — There’s something both uplifting and soothing about the 13 tracks that comprise “Parachute,” the excellent sophomore full-length from everyBoy (aka Bruce Nathan). These songs resonate with optimistic themes like compassion and hope, which can’t help but make you feel better about life, yet are presented in a smooth, ear-pleasing manner that’ll calm you down after a hectic day at the office. Nathan gets all metaphysical on opener “To Arjun,” which tells the tale of the warrior hero Arjun and the Hindu god Krisna, but it’s served up in pop packaging. Clever, everyBoy. Additional keepers include “Change,” the title track, “Bully Me,” “L.U.V.” and “Ego Solo.” Less effective are “Don’t You Know” and “Barks Too Much,” but they don’t take away from this first-rate record.”
