Women's Cycling Documentary Half the Road, featuring Brother Dege tunes hits DVD today

PURCHASE HERE: http://firstrunfeatures.com/halftheroaddvd.html

Modern society has long believed that women hold up half the sky in terms of equality and progression. So when it comes to the sport of professional cycling, why aren't women receiving half the road? 

Directed by pro cyclist Kathryn Bertine, Half the Road explores the world of women's professional cycling, focusing on both the love of sport and the pressing issues of inequality that modern-day female athletes face in male dominated sports. With footage from some of the world's best races to interviews with Olympians, World Champions, rookies, coaches, officials, doctors and family members, Half the Road offers a unique insight to the drive, dedication, and passion it takes for a female cyclist to thrive. 

Included as well are notable women who have achieved inroads in other sports, such as Kathrine Switzer, the first woman to official register (as "K.V. Switzer") and run the all-male Boston Marathon in 1967; the iconic photo of her being attacked by a race official was listed by Time-Life as among its "100 Photographs that Changed the World."

PRESS RELEASE:

Grammy-nominated Brother Dege's (Django Unchained, 2013) Scorched Earth Policy is the slamming summertime mix tape of 2014. Inspired by the scorching heat and humidity of the Deep South and the mix tape culture surrounding it, Scorched Earth Policy is a massive double album (19 tracks) that radiates all things summer: the mountain-pounding heat, swimming in the river, blasting metal riffs, road trips, falling in love, throwing down, and above all sweating under the MILEWIDESUN. Scorched Earth Policy is a Riff circus of burn burning, slide-delta blues, rock and roll, psych, and southern folk - all of it laced with some black chowder distortion, eerie slide guitars, and MORE RIFFS. Summer is about Riffing. The album includes five new songs, two covers (Black Sabbath and Husker Du), tons of demos, field recordings, and a spoken word collage. As usual, all of these tracks were recorded by Legg in odd, nontraditional places: trailerparks, warehouses, sheds, open fields, and even a pond. This is the jam, people! Double album. MFing rock & roll. 19 tracks. And more riffs than you can fit in Riffelstiltskin rucksack.

Production: Tony Daigle & Dege Legg
Engineering: Tony Daigle & Dege Legg

Instrumentation:
Dege Legg: vocals, slide, resonators, electric guitar, bass, percussion, and sounds
Howie Wells: guitar on "Day I Was Born"
Danny Devillier: drums on "Yellabone" and "Day I Was Born"
Seth Rung: bass on "Yellabone" and "Day I Was Born"
Stephen Gardner: drums on "Tower of Babel"

Brother Dege (AKA Dege Legg) is one of the best kept secrets in the Deep South. Hailing from the Cajun swamplands of Lafayette, Louisiana, Dege Legg is a musician, writer,  and heir to a long line of southern freaks, doing cool stuff in the backwoods of America. Most recently his song "Too Old to Die Young" (from the album Folk Songs of the American Longhair) was featured in Quentin Tarantino's movie & soundtrack to Django Unchained. Like the mad lovechild of Son House, Faulkner, and Patti Smith, Legg has burned a crooked trail to the Promised Land. Avoiding traditional career paths, he has spent as much time exploring the backwoods weirdness of his home state as he has forging his own brand of incendiary, "psyouthern" roots music. The journeys are parallel. Since the late 90s, Legg has pushed slide, resonators, and the deep south, kicking and screaming into the 21st century, melding elements of folk, Delta blues, punk, rock, metal, hippie ragas, and outlaw county into one blasted, raw whole.

Full of raging, dirt-earth pounding slabs of swamp heat, haunted redemption, and bell towers of experimentation, Brother Dege's albums Folk Songs of the American Longhair  and How to Kill a Horse are tour de force artworks that rage from barn burners to ancient Delta blues meditations to whirlwind slide guitar hurricanes. Like the Delta masters, it is emotion-packed, imperfect, flawed, desperate, yet insanely alive and vibrating with an X-variable hidden deep in our human core.

Avoiding pricey studios, Legg recorded his previous two albums and the newly released Scorched Earth Policy in nontraditional spaces such as sheds, old houses, warehouses, trailerparks, and open fields. Much like the field recordings of Alan Lomax, Legg's music tunnels into the ancient mysteries of pre-war blues and its devil-obsessed masters. His last three albums are quickly being heralded as the Delta-slide, millennial reboot for generations to come.

Bro-Diddy to Kick-off Baton Rouge Blues Fest with Rent Party gig

http://www.nola.com/entertainment/baton-rouge/index.ssf/2014/03/brother_dege_to_perform_at_pre.html



From Nola.com
A “rent party” -- historically used to raise money for musicians to help pay their rent -- is being hosted by the Baton Rouge Blues Foundation on April 11.
The event, the evening before the Baton Rouge Blues Festival, features a performance by Brother Dege and The Brethren. Brother Dege is a Lafayette artist whose music is described as a “blend of 21st century trance-folk/Delta blues/punk/rock/metal/hippie ragas/avant outlaw country.” His song “Too Old to Die Young” was used in the movie Django Unchained.
The event is going to be hosted at the Prince Hall Masonic Temple, 1339 North Boulevard. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show runs from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
