Carly Rae Jepsen Performs on Fallon

Posted:

By Hilary Brown

Carly Rae Jepsen recently stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and treated fans to “Run Away With Me,” the opening track off the pop star’s newly released, critically acclaimed sophomore album, Emotion.

The shamelessly addictive song and appearance, which aired last Wednesday, featured a Gretsch cameo as well—an equally tantalizing black G5655T-CB Electromatic® Center-Block guitar played by Tavish Crowe.

Watch the performance below.

Watch the Lone Bellow Perform ‘Take My Love’ on Conan

Posted:

The Lone BellowCelebrating the release of latest album Then Came the Morning, the Lone Bellow recently appeared on Conan to perform the single “Take My Love.”

The electrified song shows the band at their most heartfelt, with frontman Zach Williams putting his all into the vocals and guitarist Brian Elmquist getting killer tone out of his Gretsch Black Falcon.

The sophomore effort was produced by the National’s Aaron Dessner, who helped craft a record that is moodier and even more lush than Lone Bellow’s 2013 self-titled debut, and “Take My Love” is a great example of that direction.

Watch the Lone Bellow in action below.
