LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE IS BACK
 
BMG SECURES WORLDWIDE RIGHTS AND NEW PRODUCTION DEAL  
 
Los Angeles, CA – July 16, 2018 – BMG is proud to announce a new partnership with the acclaimed television music series Live From Daryl’s House. The agreement includes worldwide rights to the complete 82-episode collection filmed from 2007-2016. The show’s production, which is slated to begin this fall, is to be executive produced by Good Cop Bad Cop Productions’ Daryl Hall and Jonathan Wolfson, and Joe Thomas and Bob Frank for BMG. Sound Off Productions’ Domenic Cotter will continue as the show’s producer.
 
BMG administers a considerable portion of the legendary Daryl Hall & John Oates publishing catalogue, including hits ‘Maneater’, ‘I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)’, ‘You Make My Dreams (Come True)’, ‘Out Of Touch’, ‘Every Time You Go Away’, ‘One On One’, and ‘Say It Isn’t So’, among many others. Recently, BMG released the duo’s first new single, recorded with Train, in over a decade, ‘Philly Forget Me Not’. 
 
Created by Daryl Hall, Live From Daryl’s House began as a web series in late 2007. Filmed on location and at Hall’s former home in Millerton, NY and current venue Daryl’s House in Pawling, NY, the structure of the show evolved over the years before formalizing the format viewers have come to love featuring candid interviews, cooking segments, and Hall collaborating with guest artists – an eclectic mix of both established and rising musicians.
 
Wildly popular, the show aired on MTV Live until 2017. Past episodes have featured a mix of well-known performers including Smokey Robinson, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Dave Stewart, Toots and the Maytals, Joe Walsh, Sammy Hagar, Aaron Neville, alongside then-newcomers Fitz and the Tantrums, Mayer Hawthorne, Jason Mraz, Gavin DeGraw, Amos Lee, Brett Dennen, Elle King, Aloe Blacc, and many, many more.
 
Hall said, "I'm really excited to announce that LFDH is coming back! We have a new production partner with BMG, who are enthusiastic about taking this show to the next level with me. Fans have been asking me when we are returning, so I am pleased to say that we are headed into production in the fall."  
 
Wolfson said, "LFDH has had great partners in the past that have helped us grow, so I'm thrilled to be working with BMG’s team, moving forward. They're a perfect fit for us, as they have the global reach and personal touch that this show deserves."
 
Joe Thomas, SVP Audiovisual, BMG US, said, “This new joint venture with Live From Daryl’s House is yet another example of BMG’s growth in the audiovisual market. The show is an absolute television treasure full of musical landmarks. There is such a high-level of interest and demand for LFDH both here in the US and internationally – whether that’s with partners throughout Europe, Asia, Australia – we couldn’t be more excited to be working with the LFDH team to present the show to fans across the globe.”
 
This latest partnership further bolsters BMG’s growing Audiovisual interests including television and film.
 
Television assets include Soundstage, a legendary television music series broadcast on PBS. Soundstage captures intimate music events by iconic artists shot in some of the most impressive venues in cities such as Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Denver and Boston. BMG also produces Berlin Live, a live concert series created by BMG and Europe’s leading cultural broadcaster Arte, Europe’s highest rated arts and cultural broadcaster. Berlin Live hosts some of the world’s most accomplished musicians performing, reading, and storytelling. The concerts are broadcast to over 165 million households and licensed throughout the world.
 
BMG’s first move into film has already yielded the feature-length documentary Bad Reputation, a film on Joan Jett, making its world premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews. The film was recently acquired by Magnolia Pictures.
 
Currently in production is an upcoming documentary on the life and times of David Crosby, produced by acclaimed Academy Award winning filmmaker Cameron Crowe.
 
Additional BMG films coming soon include The Show’s The Thing – a documentary about the legendary promoters and agents who built the rock concert business in the ‘60s through the explosive business of the ‘90s; The Children of the Revolution – a documentary film celebrating the music of T. Rex; and Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records – a celebration of the music, history and cultural legacy of the pioneering British record label now owned by BMG.

JOHN OATES Heads To 'Arkansas' For New Solo Album

Artist: 
Friday, February 2, 2018
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member John Oates has teamed with an amazing group of accomplished and rising stars in the Americana music world to bring his new album, Arkansas, to life. Scheduled for release on February 2, the project is his first for Thirty Tigers.  Arkansas is available for advance order through e-retailers and a Pledge Music campaign including autographed vinyl, limited edition exclusives, hats, shirts, and more.
The project originally began as a tribute to Oates' idol, Mississippi John Hurt. During a series of Nashville recording sessions, it evolved organically to become a unique collection drawing from a wide range of Oates' musical influences. Asked about the style and sound of Arkansas, John says, "It's like Dixieland, dipped in bluegrass, and salted with Delta blues."
Media link to Preview Arkansas.
The album was recorded at Addiction Studios in Nashville and produced by Oates and David Kalmusky who also engineered and mixed it. The sonic glue that cements the project is "The Good Road Band". The impressive lineup consists of Sam Bush on mandolin, Russ Pahl on pedal steel, Guthrie Trapp on electric guitar, Steve Mackey on bass, Nathaniel Smith on cello, and Josh Day on drums and percussion.
With this incredible band, Oates shines a light on music from America's past long before the birth of rock 'n' roll. Fresh interpretations include the Emmett Miller classic "Anytime" from 1924 as well as the Jimmie Rodgers tune, "Miss the Mississippi and You," from 1932. Reimagined traditional Delta, country blues and ragtime selections salute legendary artists like Mississippi John Hurt and Blind Blake.
Two new original songs by Oates blend seamlessly with the traditional roots material, as well as John's deep catalog of Daryl Hall and John Oates hits. Taken together, Oates' music becomes a retrospective of American popular song.
 
Review copies of the album are available upon request. Arkansas will be available in digital, CD and 180 gram vinyl.  Oates is available for interviews.
