LMN has existed for twenty-four-plus years to trumpet the musical talent that has long defined Louisville as a wellspring of artists, some of whom have gained national recognition, so it’s good to see other media outlets taking up the challenge – and it is a challenge – of convincing Louisvillians of this fact. Over at, music writer Michael Tierney notes and promotes the three latest, most famous acts from the Bluegrass State, My Morning Jacket, Ben Sollee and Houndmouth. Of course, it’s always the case that it requires outside-the-area validation to get the message across, but then, that’s Louisville.

As has been noted before, one of the benefits of being on the SonaBLAST! label is the increased opportunity to get various synchronization (movies, TV) deals. Ben Sollee has added a soundtrack to a movie, Maidentrip, about 14-year-old Laura Dekker’s effort, in the face of resistence from the Dutch government, to be the youngest person to sail solo around the world. The film will be shown at SXSW in March.
