Rumours: Philly Artists Pay Tribute To Fleetwood Mac
Rumours: Philly Artists Pay Tribute To Fleetwood Mac
Rumours is the eleventh studio album by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac. Largely recorded in California during 1976, it was produced by the band with Ken Caillat and Richard Dashut and was released on 4 February 1977 by Warner Bros. Records. The record reached the top of both the United States Billboard chart and the United Kingdom Albums Chart. The songs "Go Your Own Way", "Dreams", "Don't Stop", and "You Make Loving Fun" were released as singles. Rumours is Fleetwood Mac's most successful release; along with winning the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1978, the album has sold over 40 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time. Rumours has received diamond certifications in several countries, including the US, Canada, and Australia.

The band wanted to expand on the commercial success of the 1975 album Fleetwood Mac, but struggled with relationship breakups before recording started. The Rumours studio sessions were marked by hedonistic behaviour and interpersonal strife among Fleetwood Mac members; these experiences shaped the album's lyrics. Influenced by pop music, the record's tracks were recorded using a combination of acoustic and electric instruments. The mixing process delayed the completion of Rumours, but was finished by the end of 1976. Following the album's release in 1977, Fleetwood Mac undertook worldwide promotional tours.

Rumours garnered widespread critical acclaim. Praise centred on its production quality and harmonies, which frequently relied on the interplay among three vocalists. The record has inspired the work of musical acts in different genres. Often considered Fleetwood Mac's best release, it has featured in several publications' lists of the best albums of the 1970s and the best albums of all time. In 2004, Rumours was remastered and reissued with the addition of an extra track and a bonus CD of outtakes from the recording sessions. A three-CD reissue of the album was released by Warner Bros. on 29 January 2013. The set included outtakes of songs and concert tracks the band played while on tour in 1977.[1] In 2018, the album was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry, being deemed "culturally, historically, or artistically significant" by the Library of Congress.
Primitive Heart & Dwight Remington
Meaghan Kyle (No Good Sister)
Meaghan Kyle, originally from Maryland, started performing professionally in her teens as a musical theatre actress, and pursued that career through her young adult years. Life landed her in Philadelphia where performing in theatre tapered off and singing harmony with local songwriters (Shane Dodd, Christie Lenée) took center stage.
Black Horse Motel
Black Horse Motel
Philadelphia's Black Horse Motel draws on traditional folk and Americana roots, blends in rock, country, and other influences, and ties it together with rich vocal harmonies. Songs are built on the foundations of folk instrumentation and lyrics, and are elevated by an infectious blend of guitars, strings, drums and voices. The resulting sound is heart-breaking, foot-stomping modern folk. The band will be releasing a new 5-song EP in autumn of 2016.
Grady Hoss & The Sidewinders
Vessna Scheff
Vessna Scheff is a self-taught wielder of the uke and vocal chords. Beginning her career in San Francisco performing at venues such as The Bazaar Café, The Lost Church and The Fillmore, she is now an active performer in the Philly music scene. Pairing jazzy tones with soulful resonance atop the delicate sounds of the uke, she memorizes ears with each note. The subtly and power of her performance are not to be missed.

Adrien Reju
Adrien Reju
With years of sharing the stage with artists like Neko Case, Rachael Yamagata, Nicole Atkins, Gillian Welch, Linda Rondstadt, and Amos Lee, Woodstock, New York singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Adrien Reju continues to build an evolving and impressive career in music. Now she's expanding her art into new realms with the release of her latest studio project, Strange Love & the Secret Language. an album being billed as "a collection of unconventional love songs," released on Zip Records, August 7th, 2015. The album was recorded in Woodstock with the production duo The Elegant Too (P. Diddy, Yoko Ono, John Cale) and offers listeners a lush, deeply textured indie pop record, with comparisons to Fleetwood Mac and Feist, that has caught the attention of Triple A radio stations including WDST (Woodstock) and WXPN (Philadelphia), and finds Reju in the company of fellow Woodstock artists A.C. Newman (The New Pornographers) and Marco Benevento. In addition to her striking original songs, Reju also covers tunes by David Bowie, Elliot Smith, and Prince. Glide Magazine says, "Here Reju has collaborated with her musical contemporaries, recorded choice covers and delivered a lucid album that resonates on first listen – pretty much an ideal album concept."
