Music News & Notes: Bear Bones Project, Swamp Baby, the 5 Browns, More…

The Bear Bones Project – featuring singer-songwriter Carey Ahner (guitar, vocals), Pete O’Hearn (guitar, vocals), Sandy Decker (flute, accordion, vocals), Bill Decker (bass) and Eric Johnson (drums) – hosts a CD release party for their debut disc on Friday night (January 24). Live at the Rustic Barn was recorded and mixed by the Chronicles’ Bryan Brundige, and it should come as no surprise that the celebration will take place at the Rustic Barn Pub in Troy at 8pm on Friday. Admission is $5.

At 10pm of Friday (January 24), WMHT-TV will broadcast the 5 Browns’ five-piano performance of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, recorded in concert at Skidmore College’s Zankel Music Center in Saratoga Springs on May 29, 2013, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Paris premiere of the composition.

Swamp Baby slipped into Black Dog Studio in Stillwater back in November to begin work on their upcoming album, which is currently tentatively titled Graffiti on the Horizon. Expect to hear a sampling of the new tunes in concert when Swamp Baby shares the stage with Ryder & Hazel with the Dust Bowl Faeries at the Steamer No. 10 Theatre in Albany on Saturday, March 1.

Who is No. 1 with internet thieves? Well, according to a study prepared by Musicmetric, the musician whose work was illegally downloaded the most during 2013 was Bruno Mars with 5,783,556 downloads.
