About Mavis Staples (www.mavisstaples.com)
“American Treasure” Mavis Staples Delivers Raw Joy on New Album You Are Not Alone, Produced by Jeff Tweedy
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and soul/gospel legend Mavis Staples delivers more wall-to-wall joy on her triumphant new album, You Are Not Alone (released September 14) than any other release you're likely to hear this year. Read more here on Mavis Staples here…
About Billy Bragg (www.billybragg.co.uk)
He was born Steven William Bragg in Essex around the time Tommy Steele was climbing the singles charts with Happy Guitar and the Soviet Union was launching Sputnik 2 into space. Today, on the verge of the release of his eleventh and best album, Mr. Love & Justice, he is known as Billy Bragg by his loyalists worldwide yet he is still called Steven by his mother and still referred to as the Bard of Barking by the press.
He has worked, and worked is the operative verb here, alongside British parliamentarians, unskilled unemployed workers, members of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, young music hopefuls, unsung buskers in the street, incarcerated convicts, newly liberated refugees, punk rockers and striking dockers.
