North Of Nine Release New Album “IM@GINE”

Jackson Guthy’s project North of Nine just released a new album called “IM@GINE” as a New Years present for eager fans.   As Jackson wrote on Facebook, “This album brought me back to the beginning.  Me at my piano making music I love.”  The album is very much in Jackson’s style – think piano driven pop with some jazzy horns and funky beats alongside his unique, raspy vocals.

The album will be available on iTunes and Spotify January 8th but for now, you can listen to the entire collection of songs on SoundCloud below!  Jackson  also enlisted artists to design special album artwork to go along with each track.  Learn more about each artist and the track that inspired them at NorthOfNine.com!

North of Nine Rock Piano’s in NYC

North of Nine recently made their New York debut with an intimate showcase at Piano’s.   The band played tracks off of their new EP, “Alive,” along with a solid cover of “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers.  Highlights of the set included the band’s current single, “Can It Be You?” and a jazzy, piano driven track, “Alive,” that will hopefully make it to the album.   We love North of Nine’s sound – pop rock that’s a little bit funky, infused with soulful keyboards.  “Alive” is a perfect way to describe their energetic performance.

Lead singer Jackson Guthy was a solo artist before forming the band with friends from LA: Michael O’Grady (guitar), Edison Lo (bass), Nolan Frank (keyboards), and Rob Ketchum (drums).   Each member of the band brings their own unique style.  If you’re a fan of Jackson’s solo material (“Pretty Lady” was our JAM a couple of summers ago), you’ll love the rock-infused North of Nine.

Pickup a copy of the “Alive” EP on iTunes now and watch the video for “Can It Be You?” below.  The single recently went to radio, and we’d love to see them charting north of #9 on the charts!   The band, who is managed by Randy Jackson, made their debut at SXSW this year.  They are definitely an artist to watch in 2015, and we can’t wait to hear more from this talented band.

The Friday Five: Our Favorite Tour Lineups

There is nothing better than seeing your favorite artist on tour.   Except when two or more of your favorites team up – then it’s pretty much guaranteed to fall into the best concert EVER category. Or as NKOTBSB billed it:  One Night.  One Stage.  Once in a Lifetime. (or in our case, 3 times.)  Here are some of our favorite tour lineups!

1.  NKOTBSB (New Kids on the Block & Backstreet Boys)
Basically the greatest tour of all time.   Sure anything with these two acts would be amazing.  But the way the show was arranged, with alternate medleys of songs from each group, kept the audience thrilled from start to finish. And they played every song you’d ever want to hear – just giving the fans what they want.  If you’ve never seen Backstreet Boys perform “Everybody” live, you’re missing out! The choreography, set list, stage, everything about this tour was amazing.  It took everyone back in time , be it 1989 or 1999.

2.  The Best of Both Worlds Tour (Jonas Brothers, Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus)
It’s been years and we still aren’t sure how we managed to snag tickets to this one (as we say in our Fangirl Handbook, we refuse to buy resale tickets!)  But we were there, on the floor, and it was even 10 times more awesome than it looked in the 3D movie. We’d seen Jonas Brothers a couple of times before, but this tour was when they really hit their stride and exploded. And this tour was truly a once in a lifetime event.  Especially now that Hannah Montana is dead.

3. The Package Tour (New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees & Boyz II Men)
We love NKOTB and their boy band posse. They recruited newly reunited 98 degrees and Boyz II Men for the appropriately titled “Package Tour.” Once again, NKOTB nailed the set, stage, choreography, etc. They’re older now, as are their fans, so they’re at a point when everyone can just relax, have fun and have the time of their lives.  It’s a beautiful thing.  We’re so glad NKOTB reunited and are better than ever!

4. Summer Break Tour (Big Time Rush, Victoria Justice, Jackson Guthy & Olivia Somerlyn)
The perfect name for the perfect summer tour.   We’re huge Victoria and BTR fans so we were thrilled to see them team up!  Openers Jackson Guthy and Olivia Somerlyn were fun opening acts who had us singing and dancing along by the third go round.  BTR doesn’t get enough credit for being a legit boy band, and for bringing back the genre. We’re convinced NKOTBSB and all these amazing things wouldn’t have happened without BTR.  These guys are talented singers and dancers and totally bring it each night. It doesn’t hurt that they share a choreographer with NKOTB – boy band master Kevin Maher.  Now if the New Kids could just recruit Big Time Rush for their boy band posse…

5. Matchbox Twenty & Goo Goo Dolls
We’re 90s fan girls so when we heard Matchbox Twenty and Goo Goo Dolls, two of our favorite bands ever, would be touring together we HAD to go. Mostly because if you had told us 15 years ago we would have the chance to go and didn’t, we would have been very upset with ourselves. Luckily we decided to go and it was more than worth it. Both acts played very solid sets including all of their old material.   It was just as great in 2013 as it would have been in 1996. If you are/were a fan of either group, we highly suggest seeing them live at least once.

You can see New Kids on the Block, Backstreet Boys, and Goo Goo Dolls on tour this summer!
