Country star Keith Urban’s new album Fuse edged out Weeknd’s Kiss Land to debut at no. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Prior to his album release, Urban dropped by WSJ Café for an acoustic performance of “Little Bit of Everything.” Watch Urban in action with his Guild Orpheum below, and click here to order his latest effort.
Denver folk rockers the Lumineers have been making the rounds of the summer festivals based on their intimate and passionate live performances and their heartfelt 2012 self-titled album.
That journey recently took the Lumineers overseas to the U.K.’s Reading Festival. Taking the Main Stage after a smattering of rain hit the site, the band went out into the crowd at times and generally led a giant singalong.
That was evident during their take on “Hey Ho,” which had the masses singing loud.
Born and raised in a small town in East Texas, singer/songwriter Dave Fenley grew up with country music before getting into classic R&B in his teens.
Those influences can be clearly heard in Fenley’s unmistakeable soulful voice and passionate stage presence, both of which have been on display to a national audience during his recent run on America’s Got Talent.
Fenley has fought all the way to the semifinals of the show, with his last two performances earning huge cheers from the audience. For those spots, Fenley decided to put his own spin on ”Trouble” by Ray LaMontagne and “Say You’ll Be There” by the Spice Girls.

Since the release of their pop-rock gem When It Was Now in early 2013, Australia’s Atlas Genius has garnered accolades around the world.
The band has made capacity crowds dance along with their catchy anthems in small clubs and big festivals. But when frontman Keith Jeffery stopped by the Guild Lounge to perform their latest single “If So,” it was not the fast-paced mover that they typically play live. Instead, Jeffery grabbed a Guild 12-string guitar and slowed down the tempo, creating a dreamy way to enjoy the song.
