Six Market Blvd. Goes On Indefinite Hiatus

SIX MARKET BLVD. GOES ON INDEFINITE HIATUS IN 2014

SEND OFF PERFORMANCE TO TAKE PLACE IN HOMETOWN OF STEPHENVILLE

For immediate release:  Contact Brandy Reed (615) 830-3508

Nashville, TN-  Nationally recognized Six Market Blvd. announced today that the band will take an indefinite hiatus in 2014after a long successful five year run.  Fans will have a chance to see them off at their bon voyage performance at City Limits in their hometown of Stephenville, Texas on February 28th.

Six Market Blvd. formed at Tarleton University in Stephenville back in 2009 and went on to crest the upper echelon of the Texas music scene with their latest record SHAKE IT DOWN (May 2012) on Nashville-based Vision Entertainment with two Top 10 singles on the Texas Music Chart.  Quickly attracting a national following, the record instantly debuted at #42 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart, #22 on the HeatseekersChart, #1 on the Heatseekers Regional South Central Chart and #5 on the iTunes Country Chart.   Their eclectic mix of Americana roots combined with lead singer Clayton Landua’s soaring vocals gained them rave reviews in premier outlets including the Huffington Post, Country Weekly Magazine, Billboard’s The 615 Blog and Texas Music Magazine to name a few. The swelling attention caught the ears of Thirty Tigers via SONY RED Distribution who re-released the record nationally in November2012.

The shocking news of the hiatus is a great upset to the band’s widespread fan base, but cannot be helped. Lead singer Clayton Landua feels that his calling in life is taking a new direction and that he needs to explore some new opportunities.  “What an amazing run this has been for the past fiveyears. The will and determination from everyone that has been involved with Six Market Blvd. is unforgettable and will be remembered with thankfulness and gratitude. Everyone on our business team, and without a doubt the amazing fans and friends, all hold a tight connection to what has taken place for this music group from the start.  THANK YOU ALL. I am simply wanting to go in a different direction in my life and it is certain that the good Lord above is playing a major role in this. Many opportunities come to mind as far as turning my music to the direction of ministry and whatever can come from it. I’m looking forward to the changes to come and seeing my family more often who have been so supportive of Six Market Blvd. over the years.”

 

Ben Hussey, bass player, vocalist and one of the primary songwriters of the band is saddened by the sudden break, but is looking forward to a brand new year of brand new music from the remaining band members. “Iwould like to thank all of our friends, family and fans for the past five years of continuous support, and a very special ‘thank you’ to our manager Nick Hammond for dealing with our shit. We wouldn’t have been able to do this without all of you. We have always agreed to do whatever is necessary to keep each other happy in our pursuits, and if that means exploring other opportunities, then out of respect for each other so be it. Red, Josh, and myself are going to move forward playing music togetherand working on a new project. Exciting things are coming for and from us. Much love to you all and please keep supporting live music.”  www.sixmarketblvd.com

Six Market Blvd. Joins the Boot Campaign

We are incredibly honored and excited to announce that we are teaming up with the Boot Campaign.  We did the photo-shoot while we were in Steamboat, with Scott Wade.   SMB-1

Here is the official press release sent out yesterday:

Six Market Blvd. is a name that has been getting a steady flow of attention over the last year with the release of their latest record SHAKE IT DOWN.  Released independently in May of 2012 and re-released nationally in November of that same year, the record has spun a most powerful web that has captured debuting positions on the Billboard charts and the iTunes country chart, a Top 10 single on the Texas Music Chart and an entanglement of national acclaim in high profile outlets including the HuffingtonPost.com, Country Weekly Magazine, Texas Music Magazine and Billboard’s The 615 music blog.  These Stephenville, Texas-based boys sure have come a long way in a short time and they continue their march into expanding territories donning their newly acquired combat boots in honor of The Boot Campaign, a national patriotic movement that has welcomed the band into the fray earlier this year. Clayton Landau, Josh Serrato, Ben Hussey, Dallas Neal and new member Red Shahan will clock the miles in their boots along a touring path that boasts 150 plus shows a year…and counting. In their efforts to help spread awareness Six Market Blvd. will engage in fundraising opportunities and social interactions as they rally their fans around the uprising.  Keep tabs on their website for event information, promotions and tour dates.

The Boot Campaign is a national 501c3 non-profit based in Texas that is dedicated to showing tangible appreciation of our active military by encouraging Americans to “get their boots on”.  By lacing up a pair of the Boot Campaign’s signature combat boots, Americans are showing appreciation for troops, cultivating awareness of the challenges they face upon return and raising funds for military programs meeting the physical and emotional needs of our heroes.  Through the sale of its signature combat boots, general public donations, and corporate sponsorship, the Boot Campaign operates five distinct initiatives — Jobs, Housing, Family Support, Urgent Assistance and Wellness– that are caring for military personnel, past and present, healing from a variety of physical and emotional combat wounds, embodying the campaign motto that, “When They Come Back, We Give Back.”  The special edition compilation CD of the same name featuring Jack Ingram, Cory Morrow, Robert Earl Keen, Micky and the Motorcars, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Eli Young Band, Aaron Watson and No Justice (just to name a few) can be purchased via the Boot Campaign store along with boots, apparel and other accessories.  

The Boot Campaign is comprised of a strong and growing network of dedicated individuals and groups who volunteer countless hours of their time to ensure that the greatest impact is made in our military communities nationwide.  With national coverage on The View, Fox & Friends and Glenn Beck the network has grown to include a slew of the “star-studded” including Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman, Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, the Detroit Red Wings, the Jacksonville Jaguars, NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne, Texas Governor Rick Perry, James Carville (The Ragin’ Cajun), Dolly Parton, Gary Allen, George Jones, Kix Brooks, Randy Rogers Band, Reckless Kelly, Craig Morgan, Granger Smith, Gretchen Wilson and Charlie Daniels. Log on to their website and find out how you can get involved!

This is an organization that we are truly thrilled to be involved with, we want to encourage all of our friends and fans to get involved.  It is as simple as ordering a pair or boots, or if boots aren’t your thing they have some pretty cool tee’s available as well.  This is a great way to show appreciation to the men and women of our military and to help give back when they come back!

Here are some behind the scenes shots from our shoot, it was cold to say the least…IMG_9737
