It’s Groundhog Day, and apparently we are going to have six weeks of winter, which, in most parts of the country, should be no surprise. It’s also the end of the NFL season, as we were treated to a well-played and exciting Super Bowl last night to close out a tumultuous year in football. But February, while it can be gray and dreary, is the kind of month that gives us hope that spring is right around the corner. And with spring comes a lot of new music and the start of touring season. So let’s get to what’s new here in February….

New Clients and New Releases

Jim Lauderdale Jim Lauderdale is a multiple Grammy® and Americana Music Association Award-winning musician and one of the most respected artists working the Americana, Bluegrass and Country music communities today. He continues to tour in support of his 2014 release, I’m A Song, Lauderdale’s 26th album to date which features an all-star cast of special guests, musicians, and co-writes. www.jimlauderdale.com

Dan Rodriguez Minneapolis based singer/songwriter Dan Rodriguez is creating quite a buzz in the Midwest with his groove-based, bluesy alt-pop, with a new album on the way this spring. Dan had a career boost in September 2014, when Budweiser released their "Friends Are Waiting" commercial featuring his performance of an original song "When You Come Home," which was written for the commercial and pitched through In The Groove Music. www.danrodriguezmusic.com

Brian Lisik Akron rocker Brian Lisik is gearing up for the release of his fourth studio album, Curtisinterruptedus, in late April. Lisik returns with another killer collection of literate, jangly power-pop‎ and folk rock that Maverick Magazine has said, "drives hard and dirty with great lyrical punch." www.brianlisik.com
