Upcoming Threadhead Records Releases
Camille Baudoin: Old Bayou Blues
 Old Bayou Blues


Camile Baudoin: For 33 years, Camile Baudoin has laid down the "law of the fish" as guitarist for the epic New Orleans rock band, The Radiators, thrilling audiences around the world with his funk-driven rhythms, scorching slide and incendiary solos that defined that lugubrious Crescent City groove known as Fishhead Music. In this first solo recording, set to be released on September 7, Camile unplugs and explores his roots with acoustic performances of the songs he grew up singing with his family and in his uncles' band, The Dufrene Brothers.

Jesse Moore

Jesse Moore: Later this month we are releasing the latest project from musician/actor Jesse Moore. The new CD, his second on Threadhead Records, initially projected to be an original work with a full band, has morphed into a live, solo recording comprised mostly of original songs, both old and new.   


Recording began at the Old Point Bar in July during Jesse's "Five Moore Years" celebration, marking five years of Sunday gigs for Moore at the bar and will include an appearance by Wilson & Moore partner and neighbor, Chip Wilson. Read more...

A Note from the New Orleans Nightcrawlers

Jason Mingledorff included a letter with the Nightcrawlers' check which said: "Enclosed is what I believe is our final payment back to the Threadheads for our album, Slither Slice. I can't tell you enough how grateful we all are to all of you for giving us the opportunity to make this record. Please know that what you are doing for our music community is cherished and appreciated."

When we emailed and asked permission to post this, he replied "Sure! We love you all."
