1 - NILE, WILLIE - CHILDREN OF PARADISE - (CD) 
RIVER HOUSE


Willie Nile's 12th studio release 'Children of Paradise' is an album of bracing new originals, following up from his acclaimed 2017 release of Bob Dylan covers, "Positively Bob". With an immediate sound that reflects Nile's deep affinity for rock 'n' roll's gritty roots, 'Children of Paradise' ranks with his most distinctive and resonant work, and was made as a 'pick-me-up from the blues that's all around us in 2018'. It's a fast paced and uplifting album from the man Uncut magazine called 'the unofficial poet laureate of New York City', and at 70 years old Nile shows no signs of rest. Co-produced by Nile and Grammy-winner and longtime collaborator Stewart Lerman (Elvis Costello/Patti Smith/Norah Jones), the album features such timely compositions as "Seeds of A Revolution," "All Dressed Up and No Place to Go," "Don't," "Earth Blues" and "Gettin' Ugly Out There." The heartfelt "Lookin' for Someone" was co-written with his longtime friend and country songwriting pro, the late Andrew Dorff. The record features his longstanding live band, with special guests guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Steuart Smith (Eagles/Rosanne Cash/Rodney Crowell) and keyboardist Andy Burton (John Mayer/Rufus Wainwright/Ian Hunter).

3 - NILE, WILLIE - NEW YORK AT NIGHT - (CD) 
RIVER HOUSE


New York at Night is the 13th studio album from veteran rock 'n' roll troubadour Willie Nile, and the strongest manifestation to date of his deep affinity for the city. The album's 12 new originals exemplify the artist's trademark mix of romance, idealism, humour, emotional urgency and a true believer's passionate embrace of all things rock 'n' roll. New Yorker Magazine has described Willie as "One of the most brilliant singer-songwriters of the past 30 years", and Uncut Magazine dubbed him the unofficial poet laureate of New York City. Nile's abiding passion for his town animates such tunes as "New York Is Rockin'" and the album's title track. "New York City has always inspired me," states Willie. "I've lived in Greenwich Village for many years now, and I still love being there. The energy, the grit, and the mystery of it all fills my heart with wonder. Most of these songs were written in New York or were inspired by it in one way or another." Nile recorded New York at Night just across the river, at Weehawken, N.J.'s Hobo Sound, co-producing with longtime collaborator Stewart Lerman (Elvis Costello, Neko Case, Patti Smith) and backed by his longtime live band - along with renowned guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Steuart Smith (Eagles, Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell), pianist Brian Mitchell (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, B.B. King), and an assortment of backing vocalists including singer-songwriters Frankie Lee and James Maddock, and veteran singers Tawatha Agee and Vaneese Thomas.

5 - NILE, WILLIE - THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL - (CD) 
RIVER HOUSE


Brand new from Willie Nile, with a guest appearance from Steve Earle. Vinyl release to follow later in he year.While many of us have struggled to salvage a sense of purpose from a year's worth of isolation, veteran New York rocker Willie Nile has tapped into his own lockdown experience as a source of inspiration for the set of haunting new songs that comprise his emotion-charged new release, The Day the Earth Stood Still. Although the veteran singer-songwriter borrowed its title from the beloved 1951 science-fiction movie classic, the album was actually inspired by the sight of Nile's beloved hometown temporarily turned into a desolate ghost town. "It came from seeing the deserted streets of downtown Manhattan, with all the shops and stores boarded up and all these beautiful buildings looking down on everything," Nile recalls, "But one Friday night last June, crossing Varick Street, I realized that there wasn't a car in sight, and that I could have laid down in the middle of the street without anyone noticing. The title The Day the Earth Stood Still hit me, and I carried it around in my head for awhile, and eventually it sparked this set of songs." The title became the jumping-off point for one of the most powerful and personal albums of Nile's long and prolific career. Indeed, The Day the Earth Stood Still - his 14th studio effort - features 11 new original compositions that exemplify the artist's trademark mix of romance, idealism and humor, channeling a true believer's passionate affirmation of life, love and rock 'n' roll. Such new Nile originals as "Sanctuary," "Expect Change" and "Way of the Heart" underline Nile's abiding passions, while the more out-there "Off My Medication" and "Where There's a Willie There's a Way" (co-written by fellow musical veteran Michael Des Barres) display his self-effacing sense of humor. Nile's hard-wired social conscience drives the heartfelt "Blood on Your Hands," recorded as a duet with Nile's West Village neighbor Steve Earle, and the impassioned "The Justice Bell," inspired by Nile's encounter with civil rights icon and U.S. Congressman John Lewis.

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Day The Earth Stood Still 02. Sanctuary 03. Where There's A Willie There's A Way 04. Blood On Your Hands 05. The Justice Bell (for John Lewis) 06. Expect Change 07. Don't Remember You 08. Off My Medication 09. I Will Stand 10. Time To Be Great 11. Way Of Heart
