Proof positive the future of rock & roll is alive and well in a brilliant 5-foot tall spitfire from Columbus, Ohio. Lydia Loveless documentary and limited-edition live vinyl-only EP from Color Me Obsessed director Gorman Bechard .
Filmmaker Gorman Bechard, who has chronicled three of the most influential bands in the history of rock and roll with documentaries about The Replacements, Archers of Loaf, and Hüsker Dü’s Grant Hart is turning his camera towards the future with his new film, Who is Lydia Loveless?
The feature-length documentary follows Lydia Loveless and her band into the studio as they record their album Real. Along with a chaotic super-charged home-town live performance shot specifically for the film and extensive interviews with Loveless and her band, the rock-doc will delve into the realities, financial and otherwise, of a working musician on the brink of major success. It will examine what it’s like to be a woman in the mostly sexist rock & roll world, dealing with cellphones in your face as you sing a heartbreaking tune, piracy, streaming services, and of course answer the question: Who Is Lydia Loveless?
“Lydia is the future of rock and roll,” director Bechard explains. “She straps you onto an emotional roller coaster of love, lust, drunken mistakes, a little stalking, a lot of heartbreak, an you’re left breathless, stunned, happy to have taken the ride.”
Music journalists from SPIN to Rolling Stone have likewise raved, with her albums always finding their way onto many year-end Best Album lists.
“I’m excited to work with Gorman,” says Loveless. “He’s very passionate about music and about the true meaning and spirit of rock and roll.”
The vinyl release, Live From the Documentary Who is Lydia Loveless?, is an exclusive Record Store Day release featuring 6 tracks recorded at a hometown performance in Columbus, Ohio.
Bechard’s three previous music docs have all won critical praise. Rolling Stone called Color Me Obsessed, A Film About The Replacements one of “The Seven Best New Music Documentaries of the Year.”
The Seattle Times raved about the “raw power and mesmerizing hooks” in his Archers of Loaf concert film What Did You Expect? While Every Everything: The Music, Life & Times Of Grant Hart was labeled “beautifully sad” by The Village Voice.
He is currently in post production on documentaries about Wilco’s Jay Bennett, as well as newly-signed Bloodshot Records recording artist Sarah Shook and the Disarmers. Bechard is also the filmmaker behind the ASPCA-award-winning animal welfare documentary A Dog Named Gucci.
Who is Lydia Loveless? will be released on an extra-filled DVD and streaming services from MVD Entertainment Group on Friday, November 24th, 2017. Live From the Documentary Who is Lydia Loveless? (which includes a copy of the DVD) will be available as a Record Store Day exclusive on that same day.
CINDERELLA frontman Tom Keifer has released the official music video for the title track of his critically acclaimed solo debut album, “The Way Life Goes”. The clip, was directed by Vicente Cordero.
“The Way Life Goes – Deluxe Edition”, an expanded compilation of “The Way Life Goes”, chock full of bonus content and special artwork, is finally set for release October 20 via Cleopatra Records. The package will include the original album that has been remastered by Richard Dodd (KINGS OF LEON, JASON ALDEAN, LADY ANTEBELLUM). It also has two brand new studio tracks recorded in Nashville by three-time Grammy Award winner Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton) with Keifer and his bandmates (Tony Higbee, Billy Mercer, Paul Simmons, Paul Taylor, Savannah Keifer and Kendra Chantelle). Fans will finally get to hear the long-awaited studio recording of THE BEATLES’ “With A Little Help From My Friends”, which Keifer performs at all of his concerts, plus a powerful new take on the CINDERELLA classic “Nobody’s Fool”, newly recorded as a duet with Lzzy Hale of HALESTORM.
“The reason that I picked up guitar, the reason that I sing the way I do was all because of that guy,” said Hale of Keifer’s influence on her at a young age. The two first performed “Nobody’s Fool” live together in Atlantic City, New Jersey in September 2013.
“I remember the first time seeing Lzzy perform live at the House of Blues show in Atlantic City and being absolutely floored by the power of her voice and performance,” Keifer says. “She’s an amazing artist and has been a great inspiration to me as well.”
There will also be a bonus DVD with music videos, tour clips, and “The Way Life’s Goin'”, a 30-minute documentary produced by Tammy Vega (Keifer’s longtime official photographer) about the creation of the bonus tracks, exclusive interviews with the band filmed during the new recording sessions, and live footage.
“The Way Life Goes – Deluxe Edition” will be wrapped in an all new six-panel digipak designed by artist David Calcano (creator of the Fantoons comic strip series) with 20 pages of one-of-a-kind unique illustrations depicting each song.
As Keifer explains: “Everything from the new artwork, documentary, videos and bonus tracks contained in the deluxe edition is a sum of all the amazingly talented people who came into our world as a result of the initial release. The two bonus tracks were specifically chosen and recorded as we felt them both to be special collaborations that came about while touring for ‘The Way Life Goes’.”
New band members Jarred Pope (drums) and Kory Myers (keyboards/vocals) join Keifer’s solo band in 2017. Writing has begun for a follow-up to “The Way Life Goes”, with recording slated for fall 2018.
