Soil &"Pimp" Sessions

Soil & "Pimp" Sessions (stylised as SOIL&"PIMP"SESSIONS) is a Japanese club jazz sextet who formed in Tokyo, Japan, in 2001. They are known for their energetic live performances, having coined the term "death jazz" to describe their music.



Dave Davies & Russ Davies

Open Road is an album by Dave Davies & Russ Davies, two musicians coming from different eras and backgrounds in music fusing their collective experience into a deeply honest and inspiring LP. Together they have crafted a beautiful pop rock album, bringing together their own personal history and experience into a molten expression of sentimental acoustic songs and anthemic rock hits; telling stories of love, memories, and freedom for the human spirit.



Dee Snider

Produced by Grammy®, Emmy® and Oscar® winning song writer, Damon Ranger, We Are the Ones crackles with modern energy, from the call-to-arms manifesto of “Rule the World,” to the anthemic bonding of “So What” to the intensely synth driven “Close to You,” to the thematically soaring “Superhero”. Another significant highlight of the album is a newly re-recorded acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” which has also been tapped as the official anthem for The Recording Academy’s advocacy efforts, including the “Fair Play Fair Pay” Act. Recently performed in Washington D.C. at the annual GRAMMYs On the Hill event, a video of the song premiered earlier this year on Entertainment Weekly’s website. Also featured on the album is an explosive cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like A Hole.” “I always thought it was a great song, a powerful song,” DEE explains, “I can’t wait to do that one live. Like ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ is iconic, ‘Head Like a Hole’ is iconic for that era.”



Dale Watson

Dale Watson, keeper of the true country music flame, latest album Under The Influence, was recorded in Austin with his band The Lone Stars. The Austin-based honky-tonker carries on in the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson with his “Ameripolitan” brand of American roots music. Dale describes the new project as “an album dedicated to all of my influences, from Elvis Presley and Ray Price, whose songs are not included here but have had as much or more of an influence, on my music, to Merle and Lefty and Johnny whom have had an obvious influence. I feel blessed to have grown up exposed to their music and around to have heard most of them Live. I feel very sad for the artist to come that have and likely will never hear of these legends and their songs. Country music of their time is gone, but luckily it lives in Ameripolitan Music, and that my friends is where you will find artists that still carry the torch that these influences lit. It will never go out!”

Dale has flown the flag for classic honky-tonk for over two decades. He’s christened his brand of American roots “Ameripolitan” to differentiate it from current crop of Nashville-based pop country. The Alabama-born, Texas-raised Watson may be the hardest working entertainer today and is rapidly approaching legendary status. He is a country music maverick, a true outlaw who stands alongside Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State. 


Bob Baldwin

The Brazilian-American Soundtrack is Baldwin’s second foray into Brazil expanding on the territory he mined on his 2004 album, Brazil Chill. This time out, he purposely incorporated more American nuances into the mix. Supplementing his own compositions, he elected to honor a few of the iconic artists who influenced his artistic muse including Antonio Carlos Jobim (“Corcovado”), Ivan Lins (“Anjo De Mim,” “The Island” and “Love Dance”) and Djavan (“Eu Te Devoro”). Another formative inspiration was Maurice White, the late Earth, Wind & Fire creator and leader who Baldwin remembers with a heartfelt spoken word tribute that closes the album, The Message, and on two musical numbers, “Maurice (The Sound Of His Voice)” and “The Greatest Lover,” the latter of which was recorded in the spirit of White’s hall of fame band. Meticulously produced, performed, composed and arranged, most of the tracks on The Brazilian-American Soundtrack are tightly segued, maintaining a smooth flow and graceful transition from cut to cut through more than two hours of music.   



Trashcan Sinatras

Wild Pendulum is Trashcan Sinatras at their mellifluous best. Recorded in Omaha, Nebraska with Bright Eyes' member/producer extraordinaire Mike Mogis, it's an album bursting with swooning melodies, precise arrangements and all of the wise, magnanimous lyrics for which they’re renowned. The much beloved Scottish band, who first garnered international attention with their critically acclaimed debut, Cake, in 1990, will be touring North America in May and June and the UK in the fall.



Marshall Crenshaw

His sixth EP, Grab The Next Train, features the great new title song as well as a cover of The Easybeats' 1960s rock classic "Made My Bed Gonna Lie In It" and a 1981 apartment recorded demo of one of his first name making cuts "Something's Gonna Happen." All three tracks were mastered for maximum sound fidelity by veteran engineer Greg Calbi, who has handled mastering duties on the entire EP series. 





Dave Davies 

As lead guitarist and founder of The Kinks, Dave Davies is one of the most unpredictable and original forces in rock, without whom guitar-rock styles including heavy metal and punk would have been inconceivable. A member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Dave's massive guitar sounds have inspired bands from Van Halen to Green Day. In addition to his dozens of albums with The Kinks, Dave has released several solo albums, while touring to rave reviews. In 2015, Davies released a new live album - Rippin Up New York City - Live at City Winery through Red River Entertainment. The album is a great mix of  Dave's solo work ("Rippin' Up Time", "Flowers In The Rain", "Front Room", and "King of Karaoke") and Kinks classics. 









Red River Entertainment was formed in 2012 as the record label arm of BFE and is distributed by The Orchard globally. Red River has released over one hundred projects over the last six years including albums from former gold and platinum artists Lee Roy Parnell, Dee Snider, Bobby Bare, Dave Davies and the Grammy nominated Ralph Stanley album in 2015.
