w/s/g Tauk

After 16 years of performing over 100 concerts annually, releasing seven studio albums and selling more than 3.3 million tracks online, Umphrey's McGee might be forgiven if they chose to rest on their laurels and attend to their lives as husbands and fathers. But you'd be wrong. With their eighth studio album, Similar Skin, and first for their own indie label, Nothing Too Fancy (N2F) Music (distributed by RED), the group - which formed on the Notre Dame campus outside of South Bend, Indiana in 1997 - has something to prove. And that's not just to their ever-loyal fan base, but to those who have never heard a note, or worse - dismiss them as "too sophisticated, too complex" or think they know what Umphrey's McGee is all about.

MoreEngelbert Humperdinck
4/19/2015
Engelbert Humperdinck
For decades, Engelbert Humperdinck has been billed as "the King of Romance," and for millions of fans around the world, he has more than lived up to that title. Born Arnold George Dorsey, and struggling to make it in music, Dorsey changed his name to the more arresting Engelbert Humperdinck, borrowed from the operatic composer. The change paid off when Humperdinck's pop version of "Release Me," scored a top ten on both sides of the Atlantic and number one in Britain. Humperdinck was the only artist to keep The Beatles' "Strawberry Fields Forever" from entering the top slot in the UK at the height of Beatlemania. "Release Me" spent 56 weeks in the Top 50 in a single chart run. Other classic hits such as "After The Lovin," "Spanish Eyes" and "The Last Waltz" have helped him sell over 150 million albums worldwide and earned him 59 gold records, 17 platinum albums, and a multitude of awards from Grammy Awards to Golden Globes.
