While in the middle of an acoustic tour in support of live album Acoustic at the Ryman, Band of Horses also made time for an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show where they performed a stripped down version of one of their most popular songs, “No One’s Gonna Love You.”
The performance features guitarist Tyler Ramsey on his Guild Orpheum acoustic guitar.
Planning on releasing fourth solo album All I Do is Lie at some point this year, it was a real treat when Watkins stopped by the Guild Lounge to play its opening track “Since the Day That I was Born.”
In addition, he treated us to a solo version of the track “Wave as We Run,” which he originally wrote for a movie that unfortunately was never used.
Raitt has a new double-disc package available that is called Now & Then, which consists of her latest album Slipstream and an additional career-spanning 16-song compilation.
The 23 year old’s full-length debut album is set to be released in March 2014, but Croll offered a taste of the material with an intimate performance of the songs “In/Out” and “Home.” The tracks really showcase Croll’s layered, diverse sound, with hints of Paul Simon and James Taylor shining through.
And for both offerings during the session in Guitar Center, don’t miss bassist John Stark rocking a vintage Guild bass.

During a recent stop by the Guild Lounge, Australian singer/songwriter Damian Howard performed a new song that he had just finished, a heartfelt gem titled “Once in a While.”
In addition, Howard pulled out the title track to his beautiful 2010 album Out of My Hands, which is another great example of his skilled storytelling.

Doyle Dykes was recently the featured performer at St. Martin’s Church in Knebworth, England.
Dykes, who has a Christmas album of his own, performed several holiday standards, including a jaunty version of the song “Greensleeves.”
For those that weren’t able to make the show, video of the performance can be seen below. Enjoy the clip and visit Dykes’ official website for more information.
When Nashville-based troubadour Brian Wright stopped by the Guild Lounge, he recalled a childhood memory with one of his trademark heartfelt songs “Red Rooster Social Club.”
The track comes off his 2013 album Rattle Their Chains, and you can watch it below. Visit Wright’s official website for more information.
In mid-November, the Lumineers cover of Talking Heads’ “This Must Be the Place (Naïve Melody)” was named the No. 1 viral song of the week on Spotify. The band also played the track live on VH1′s You Oughta Know concert last month.
The Lumineers’ version stays true to the light groove of the original to start out, but it breaks into more of a high-paced jam towards the end.

Irish quartet Kodaline recently visited our London Artist Showroom, where they performed “All I Want.” The track appears on their debut studio album In a Perfect World.
