The event will take place at the Gibson Brands Showroom located at 3601 S. Congress Ave. Suite G400, Austin, Texas 78704. There will be a VIP pre-show reception beginning at 5:30 p.m. for sponsors, press and VIPs. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and music will kick off at 7:15 p.m. with a performance by the Grounded in Music students. The event is open to the public. Tickets are $45 per person and include bites and beverages, as well as a silent auction. Sponsors for the event will be announced shortly. To purchase tickets, please go to: www.eventbrite.com/e/the-peterson-brothers-suzanna-choffel-special-guests- tickets-31146634422. For more information about Grounded in Music, please visit www.groundedinmusic.net.

The benefit will help raise needed funds for the organization, which has been a signature program of the Boys and Girls Club of Austin for the past 10 years as it strives to change the lives of kids through music. Event proceeds will be used to purchase musical instruments for underprivileged youth, provide education in musicianship and recording arts, teach music theory and offer music- related opportunities outside of performance.

“It is hard to believe we are in our tenth year,” said Joe Stallone, Grounded in Music Founder. “When we started, we agreed that we would continue programming for at least three years (at any cost). Now we are in our tenth year and there are no signs of slowing down. It has really been an incredible journey. We literally started with nothing. We even wrote personal checks to pay the instructors in the first year. Within a few years, we had an amazing group of instructors, we brought kids to Stubbs, Bass Concert Hall and the Irwin Center. Amazingly enough – with the support of some really great people like Patty Griffin, Jack Ingram and Gina Fant-Sanez – we built a music studio for our kids.”

Launched in 2007 in Austin, Texas, Grounded in Music is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation whose sole mission is to leverage the power of music to transform young lives by creating self-confidence, opportunity and hope through Austin’s Boys and Girls Club system. Grounded in Music was founded by Austin music industry professional Joe Stallone, Partner at Oaks, Hartline & Daly LLP and Jeff Krenik, VP of Live Entertainment at Street Team. The board and advisory committee currently consist of Austin Community College Department Chair, Music Business, Performance + Technology Geoffrey Schulman; Juice Consulting President and Founder, Heather Wagner Reed; Orb Recording Studio Owner and Blue October group member, Matt Noveskey; Attorney at Oaks, Hartline & Daly LLP, Andrea Villarreal; Internal Controls Manager at Holtzman Partners, Natalie Blahuta and Owner/Operator Doghouse Studio and sound-designer SAHAREM, Austin Hegarty.

“The transformation in these kids is really something to see,” said Stallone. “Kids that start with no music background literally end up cornering me and demanding that I shop them a record deal. This self-confidence is going to transfer to everything they do. It brings tears to my eyes.”

Grounded in Music is currently serving three Boys and Girls Club locations (and hopefully five by this Fall) throughout Austin including Bertha Saddler Means Young Women’s Leadership Academy, San Juan Diego and Chalmers Courts Housing Authority. The nonprofit provides services to 30 – 40 students per session and offers Fall, Spring and Summer sessions. The organization serves many more students through concerts, soundcheck programs, meet-and-greets and other strategic partnerships. The program has also provided services to other locations such as BCG-East-Booker T. Washington Housing Authority and the Meadowbrook Housing Authority, who with GIM’s partnership were able to acquire a $10,000 grant to purchase gear for their recording studio. Grounded in Music is also excited to expand its outreach in Summer 2017 with a new Studio Technology Program located in the Henry Flores Learning Center at the HACA Meadowbrook apartments.

“Grounded is offering seven teaching sessions per week where students have time individually to connect with some of Austin’s working professional musicians,” said Michael Longoria, Grounded in Music’s Program Director. “In these individual lessons kids receive positive mentorship and role models to also help anchor the children’s weekly routines. We have seen kids grow from having no previous relation to music to making it to All-Star Band students. We are serving as a feeder to middle school and high school band programs where kids will enter with previous skills acquired through time with GIM instructors.”

Emily Bell announces upcoming ‘Kali’ EP release on Friday, April 21 with release party at 3TEN on Saturday, April 29

3Ten Austin City Limits Live, Austin TX
04/29/2017 | 8:00 pm

Austin’s own rock ‘n’ roll songstress Emily Bell announces the upcoming release of her new EP “Kali” with her band, Emily Bell & The Talkbacks. Set to be released on Friday, April 21, the five-song EP speaks to all things that Emily represents: female empowerment, passion and raw honesty. “This EP is me being brutally honest and following my heart as a lyricist,” says Bell. Her fiery and transformative energy shines through on every track of “Kali.” Emily and her band will be celebrating the release of the EP on Saturday, April 29 at 3TEN Austin City Limits Live, located at 310 W Willie Nelson Blvd. #1a, Austin, Texas 78701. Please see www.emilybell.com for more information.

Over the past few years, alt-rock artist Emily Bell has been on a path of glorious destruction, moving away from industry artistic paradigms to follow the music yelling at her from within. The Austin-based artist’s latest EP is titled, “Kali,” in reference to the Hindu Goddess of Destruction. Like its moniker suggests, it’s a boldly expressive release. It melds the swagger of garage rock with the textural possibilities of synthetic sounds for an empowering artistic statement. Central to Emily’s path has been a formative moment when she walked away from the allure of a career as a soul/R&B artist. At the time, she felt stifled by the stodgy female artist stereotypes that still existed in the industry. She relocated from Los Angeles to Austin to free herself. There she assembled a band, The Talkbacks, and began writing songs with a defiant emotionality. Her new music combined the dizzying beauty of her soul-influenced singing and songwriting with the sass and snarl of 1990s alt-rock and garage rock. In 2014, Emily unleashed her debut, “In Technicolor.” It garnered rave reviews from press and radio. In Austin, she was awarded “Best New Artist” by the Austin Music Awards. Select highlights during that album cycle include performances at SXSW, CMJ, and Float Fest. “Kali” is a different beast from its predecessor. It favors a rugged bottom end crafted from burly live drums layered, in parts, with programmed beats, and it embraces expansive synth textures. It’s an artistic breakthrough rooted in loss (a tragic death in the family) and enlightenment gleaned from two months spent in India where Emily learned of Kali, the Goddess Of Destruction. Kali’s power resonated with Emily because of her own passion and commitment for embodying, and furthering, strong female archetypes.
