With Toronto, Ian Moore, the Seattle-based, Austin, TX-born guitar player, singer and songwriter, offers a new record of bright, blazing rock-n-roll that combines his legendary guitar prowess with radio-friendly songs that showcase his elastic, soul-inflected vocals.

As always, Ian has his eyes on the challenges faced by musicians of every stripe, having experienced the spectrum of artist successes and tribulations over a nearly 30-year career. "It's a very different climate right now. When we hit a city, it doesn't matter that I have 14 records, radio hits, etc. The only thing that matters is if we can really show up and leave the people feeling they saw something amazing. It keeps me hungry, and I like the challenge," says Moore.

Moore's story is often told and probably familiar to most critics; his initial record on Capricorn propelled him to national tours with the Rolling Stones, ZZ Top and Bob Dylan, acting in the acclaimed indie feature "Sling Blade," and having Ice Cube direct the video for his track "Harlem." Moore deviated from his initial blues-oriented guitar sound on subsequent records, touching on graceful pop songs and the psychedelic as well as British pub rock and deep Americana. The Toronto record and its 6 tracks represents those influences in such a way that they have informed his songwriting, but is likely more recognizable as a strong collection of the kind of guitar rock his core fan base would respond to immediately.

Fort Worth's Quaker City Night Hawks—Sam Anderson and David Matsler on vocals and guitars, Pat Adams on bass, and Aaron Haynes on drums—are a Southern band, to be sure, but it's not the South we've come to expect from our rock and roll. Equally influenced by ZZ Top and science fiction, they write of landscape both familiar and foreign, of a people working to shed their past but still burdened with its repercussions even in the distant future.

"Dave and I both pull from older artists when we write," says Anderson, "but we're trying to put a new spin on it. We're harkening back to old Texas, but we're writing about a new southern culture, maintaining the past and moving it on into the future."

Paste has hailed the band's "blues-infused southern" sound, while the Dallas Observer dubbed the "relevant and timeless" rockers the Best Band of 2015, and several of their songs were featured in the hit FX series "Sons of Anarchy."
