Rock ‘n’ roll is often hard to define, or even to find, in these fractured musical times. But to paraphrase an old saying, you know it when you hear it. And you always hear it with the Wallflowers. For the past 30 years, the Jakob Dylan-led act has stood as one of rock’s most dynamic and purposeful bands – a unit dedicated to and continually honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. That signature style has been present through the decades, baked into the grooves of smash hits like 1996’s “Bringing Down the Horse” as well as more recent and exploratory fare like 2012’s “Glad All Over.” Even so, in recent years, Dylan – the Wallflowers’ founding singer, songwriter and guitarist – has repeatedly stepped outside of his band, first with a pair of more acoustic and rootsy records, 2008’s Seeing Things and 2010’s Women + Country, and then with the 2018 film Echo in the Canyon and the accompanying soundtrack, which saw him collaborate with a host of artists classic and contemporary, from Neil Young and Eric Clapton to Beck and Fiona Apple. But while it’s been nine long years since we’ve heard from the group with whom he first made his mark, the Wallflowers are silent no more. And Dylan always knew they’d return. “The Wallflowers is much of my life’s work,” he says simply. Good band name aside, that life’s work continues with Exit Wounds, the brand-new Wallflowers studio offering. The collection marks the first new Wallflowers material since Glad All Over. And while the wait has been long, the much-anticipated record finds the band’s signature sound – lean, potent and eminently entrancing – intact, even as Dylan surrounds himself with a fresh cast of musicians.
Don McLean was born in New Rochelle, New York, in 1945. By the age of five, he had developed an interest in all forms of music and would spend hours listening to the radio and records that were around the house. His love of music allowed him to flourish and he would often perform shows for family and friends. He rose to international stardom in 1971 with the release of “American Pie.” Thirty years later, “American Pie” was voted number 5 in a poll of the 365 “Songs of the Century” compiled by the Recording Industry Association of America and the National Endowment for the Arts. In 2003, the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Other hits include “Crying,” “And I Love You So,” “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” and “Castles in the Air.” In 2004, he was inducted into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.

Forever Motown features Theo Peoples, Glenn Carl Leonard, and Traci Robinson-Greene. If you’ve ever heard Theo Peoples’ voice, it’s no secret why many regard him as one of the most ‘AUTHENTIC’ voices in the music industry and agree he has raised the bar high because of his soulful vocal style! For nearly two decades, Theo Peoples’ voice has been critical to the legacy of not just one but two of Motown’s iconic groups – the Temptations AND The Four Tops’! He has earned the singular honor of being the only man to be a member of both legendary groups, and his bona fide voice has been a ‘well received’ contribution in both cases! Glenn Carl Leonard started singing at the early age of 6 years old and by the time he reached 13 he began to earn a living performing. His first recording was with ‘The Chancellor’s On Cap City Records, a subsidiary of Scepter. He later recorded with True Reflection on Atlantic Records. In 1975, Glenn came to the attention of the world renowned and legendary the Temptations’. He had a long and illustrious career as the first tenor and lead singer of The Temptations from 1975 to 1983. He performed on 10 albums with The Temptations, singing lead on many songs including“I’m on Fire,” “Go For It,” “The Best of Both Worlds,” “Open Their Eyes,” “Ever Ready Love,” and the classic Christmas song“Silent Night” from TheTemptations’ Give Love At Christmas LP. One of the highlights of Glenn’s career was being a part of “The Temptations Reunion Tour” in 1982. After leaving The Temptations in 1983, Glenn entered into full time ministry. He founded and pastors a church in Houston, TX and is now doing concerts again with his new group, giving audiences all over the country a genuine Temptations experience. Traci-Robinson Greene is a New York born and educated artist who received dance training at Alvin Ailey Dance Center and Dance Theatre of Harlem. A triple threat, she has appeared in theatre, film and television including“School Daze,” “Malcolm X,” “The Cosby Show,” “David Letterman Show,”the Time WarnerSingers and the 8-time Tony-nominated Broadway hit, Sophisticated Ladies.
