GLASSNOTE RECORDS ANNOUNCE SIGNING OF SON LUX 
SON LUX SCORES THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY OUT NOVEMBER 4th, 2014
New York, NY- Glassnote Entertainment Group is excited to introduce the newest addition to the independent label’s roster with the worldwide signing of New York City-based artist Son Lux. Son Lux is led by Ryan Lott. After his first record, At War With Walls and Mazes, NPR’s All Songs Considered declared him the “Best New Artist.” Son Lux has released two EPs and two LPs since, including 2011’s We Are Rising LP, ambitiously written and recorded in just 28 days. In 2013, Son Luxreleased Lanterns, to critical acclaim, which he most recently re-imagined as the Alternate Worlds EP. The Alternate Worlds EP reworks four songs from Lanterns and features Lorde. Son Lux, never one to keep to one project, as Pitchfork has keenly noticed, “works at the nexus of several rarely-overlapping Venn Diagrams.” As such, few artists have built a more impressive and varied array of collaborators; Pop icons Lorde, Beyoncé producer Boots and Richard Parry (Arcade Fire), indie darlings Sufjan Stevens (with whom he shares the side project Sisyphus) and Peter Silberman (The Antlers), composers Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw, rappers Serengeti, Busdriver and Beans (Antipop Consortium), and MacArthur Genius Grant recipient and Bluegrass legend Chris Thile are all among Son Lux’s recent collaborators. Son Lux has also made a name for himself composing music for film, theater and dance. Most recently,Son Lux has written and arranged the score for The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, starring James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain, in theaters now. Of the score, Ryan Lott states, “Jessica Chastain’s character in the film is like glass; She is both rigid and extremely fragile. This inspired me to explore the sonic potential of tuned wine glasses, which became the primary source of sound and texture for the score.” The score will be available on November 4th via Glassnote Records. Fans can preorder the score here and will instantly receive a download of “No Fate Awaits Me.”  Lott explains, “’No Fate Awaits Me” appears in the closing scene of two of the three versions of the film, and was fittingly the last piece I wrote for the score. It features Faux Fix, whose voice appears and fades like a ghost throughout the album.” Please check out “No Fate Awaits Me” here. Son Lux is working on a new album for release in 2015 and is about to kick off a full tour of Europe, including stops at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris on October 31st and the Iceland Airwaves Festival on November 8th, 2014. Full tracklisting for the score and all tour dates are below. Tracklisting:

ABOUT THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY With his unique vision, writer/director Ned Benson ambitiously captures a complete picture of a relationship in the beautifully relatable portrait of love, empathy and truth that is THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY: HIM/HER. Once happily married, Conor (McAvoy) and Eleanor (Chastain) suddenly find themselves as strangers longing to understand each other in the wake of tragedy. The film explores the couple’s story as they try to reclaim the life and love they once knew and pick up the pieces of a past that may be too far gone. This dual version, which premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, showcases two films side by side – titled HIM and HER – that examine each side’s perspective and take a further look into the subjectivity of relationships.

Aurora was listed as the #1 artist that Guest of a Guest suggests you should see at this year’s CMJ!
Traveling all the way from Bergen, Norway, Aurora started performing publicly at 17 around Norway. More recently, MTV Iggy has named Aurora as one of the “13 Artists that Norway Needs to Export Immediately,” stating, “Amidst the beat-based songs and nature-centric imagery so lush you could almost reach out and touch it, she’s not just the harbinger of musical quirk—she’s a queen.”

GLASSNOTE RECORDS ANNOUNCE SIGNING OF MADISEN WARD AND THE MAMA BEAR
New York, NY- Glassnote Entertainment Group is excited to introduce the newest addition to the independent label’s roster with the worldwide signing of Kansas City-based band, Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear. Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear, a mother-and-son duo, consists of singer/guitarist and songwriter  Madisen Ward and his mother, Ruth, also on vocals and guitar. The duo has been playing together in their hometown of Kansas City, building a small and under the radar following over the past few years. Recently, a trip to the Americana Music Festival in Nashville has found the band in the national spotlight, garnering critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, NPR, PASTE, CMT Edge and more for their mesmerizing songwriting, vocals and live dynamic. As Aquarium Drunkard states, “…there is unique, intangible magic about them that deepens the experience – a solemn, thoughtfulness in their delivery and a mysterious beauty flowing from their voices, their guitars and their bond.” Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear are currently working on their debut album, which is expected in early 2015 via Glassnote Records.  Watch Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear perform “Silent Movies” and “Live By the Water” here. Recent Praise: “…the duo’s raw, inscrutable chemistry was in full effect as they handily made a case as an inevitable force to be reckoned with in the days to come.” - Rolling Stone Country, 20 Best Things We Saw at Americana Music Fest 2014 "…the acoustic guitar duo of Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear… created a sensation." – Ann Powers, NPR MUSIC “There is NOTHING more beautiful raw and perfect as Madisen Ward & The Mama Bear in this entire country right now.”  — Sean Moeller, Paste Magazine “I was absolutely blown away by this unique mother-and-son duo and their homespun acoustic back porch blues. Their interactions with each other and with the intimate crowd were engaging, warm and welcoming…. it’s safe to say that Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear turned in my favorite surprise set of this year’s festivities.”  — Will Hodge, CMT EDGE "…there is unique, intangible magic about them that deepens the experience – a solemn, thoughtfulness in their delivery and a mysterious beauty flowing from their voices, their guitars and their bond."  — Chad Depasquale, Aquarium Drunkard “Ward’s voice has a strange texture; rich and dramatic as if it wants to bellow big enough for an opera house, yet strained with the shards of emotion that litter the generational voices of soul singers. Then there are the different vocal personalities he portrays… Ward throws his voice from falsetto yelps to low growls in an instant while retaining the same familiarity despite leaping across an emotional spectrum…”  — I Guess I’m Floating
