Today we want to introduce you to the first new releases in fall 2013 (see Featured Products).

ASHIA & The Bison Rouge – “Diesel vs. Lungs” (JARO 4314-2)
Ashia, the Polish-American singer-songwriter who grew up in Portland (USA), presented their show entitled Ashia & The Bison Rouge. In the U.S., Ashia already belongs to the now much-publicized league of young artists who make speeches by combining classical influences with pop like Joanna Newson, Regina Spector or Amanda Palmer.
The CD debuts, exclusively in Bremen on 25th September 2013, 20:00 h at Sendesaal.

Rachelle Garniez – “Greetings from Dreamsville“ (JARO 4315-2)
The New York Times described her as a female Tom Waits. This summer she became known to a wider audience in Europe as a new member of Hazmat Modine. As a “diva of a different kind,” a “certified free spirit” – the New York-born multi-instrumentalist Rachelle Garniez was called by Billboard Magazine and The New Yorker.

American Songbirds Festival
In spring (March 2014), we will conduct a singer / songwriter festival under the slogan AMERICAN SONG BIRDS FESTIVAL with a tour of 12 cities in Europe. Besides Ashia & The Bison Rouge and Rachelle Garniez will be seen on stage Stephanie Nilles from New Orleans and Kyrie Kristmanson from Ottawa.

The CD sampler with twelve tracks of the participating artists AMERCIAN SONG BIRDS (JARO 4318-2) will be released in November 2013. JARO will conduct a crowdfunding campaign at START NEXT to this project.

Oliver Rajamani – “Texas Gypsy Fire” feat. Willie Nelson (JARO 4317-2)
Oliver Rajamani heard as a child in India regularly Country & Western music, because his father was a big fan of this genre. Later, Oliver traveled to the home of this music, to Texas. He began intensively to love and play his native Indian instruments. On the CD “Texas Gypsy Fire” these influences merge into a great dynamic mix. On the CD, both Country & Western legends like Willie Nelson play but also Dotschy Reinhardt, a relative of the European jazz legend Django Reinhardt.
Only concert in Germany HEIDELBERG – Stadthalle – 31.10.2013 at 20:00 h.

Dieter Kropp – “Schöne Bescherung…” (SPR08)
The new CD by Dieter Kropp “Eine schoene Bescherung” is a very special Christmas CD.
Dieter Kropp has dug in the repertoire for appropriate pieces, picked out the best harmonicas and it started with a large group of musicians around him to play his favorite Christmas carols.
