Thirty Tigers – November releases
Dan Reeder, Ned Ledoux, Son Volt, Bonnie Bishop andBombadil
Nobody wants to be you. marks Reeder’s fourth release on Oh Boy Records, a relationship formed after Reeder sent a burned CD to John Prine in the early 2000’s. Prine listened, signed Reeder to his label, toured with him four times, and released all three of Reeder’s previous records: Dan Reeder (2004), Sweetheart (2005), and This New Century (2009). The albums garnered glowing reviews; publications like No Depression deemed him “brilliant,” and NPR’s Fresh Air compared Reeder to Prine himself. The New Yorker’s Ben Greenman coined him as “one of the foremost outsider artists in modern folk” and he was featured on the Emmy award-winning show Weeds (“Work Song”).
Nobody wants to be you. is the precursor to his full-length (set for a 2018 release), the five-song EP isn’t lacking in tenacity. Distributed by Thirty Tigers and produced by Reeder himself, the album holds true to his distinct style: slightly quirky, painstakingly honest, and undeniably witty. But compared to its predecessors, his latest work delivers a brighter, more energized tone, full of what Reeder calls “easy piano”.

LeDoux is doing his part with his first full-length album, Sagebrush. All 12 tracks release paint pictures of a rancher’s life, play songs from taking the show on the road, and tell stories of growing up out west in the Western Underground family.
Growing up as the son of rodeo and country music legend, LeDoux is always going to tip his weathered hat to his dad Chris. It’s just that now, withSagebrush, he is doing country music his way.
He’s crafted a collection of songs that came from his own pen, with a little inspiration from an old boot box that was stashed away in his dad’s office for a decade. It was full of his father’s notes, thoughts, and lines. And the music sounds like father and son were on the exact same page, even after Chris died in 2005. Four of the songs on Sagebrush are father-son co-writes–“Never Change,” “Cowboy Life,” “We Ain’t Got It All,” and “Forever a Cowboy”–and they prove that there is no right or wrong way to collaborate. Even posthumously.

‘Ain’t Who I Was’ is 10 tracks of tender yet resilient soul that PopMatters says “reminds one of Dusty Springfield at her best.
“The cause of this reinvention came from Cobb, who after receiving demos from David Macias at Thirty Tigers wanted to work with Bishop on a new record. With guidance from Cobb, Bishop was able to overcome the anxieties that led to her exit from the industry to create this striking soundtrack to tales of heartbreak, resilience and reinvention.”You can hear Bonnie’s soul and heart in every note she sings,” says Cobb. “That’s what attracted me to Bonnie; the honesty and humility in her songwriting.”
