  • PRESENTING… OLIVIA JEAN BATHTUB LOVE KILLINGS

    Posted by Third Man on 21 August 2014

    Third Man Records is proud to present an exciting new full length album from our favorite Third Man chanteuse… Olivia Jean!

    Bathtub Love Killings  is the debut solo LP from Olivia Jean, the multi-instrumentalist who cut her teeth in the Third Man stable backing folks as varied as Karen Elson, Wanda Jackson and Jack White in addition to fronting the much-loved Black Belles. Jean has accrued a lifetime of experience in a few short years, from highlight performances on The Colbert Report, Conan, Late Show With David Letterman and The Grand Old Opry stage to having one of her songs used as the theme for the television series Elvira’s Movie Macabre. 

    Produced by Jack White, Bathtub Love Killings showcases Jean as a songwriting force to be reckoned with. Playing damn-near every instrument she could get her hands on, the result is a well-rounded, catchy record that’s chock-a-block full of ear worm moments. 

    Bathtub Love Killings will be available everywhere on LP, CD and digital on October 14th. A limited edition lavender colored vinyl version will also be available via Third Man Records.

    For more about Olivia Jean and Bathtub Love Killings check out this humdinger of a video, listen to this song sampler, and make sure you follow Olivia on Tumblr & Instagram!

  • Tintype Portraits at Third Man

    Posted by Third Man on 19 August 2014

    Photographer Giles Clement will be setting up shop in our Blue Room this Friday and Saturday shooting tintype portraits. This is open to the public, and any interested parties should head to www.gilesclement.com to schedule a session.

    In the tradition of artists and tradesmen of generations past, portrait photographer Giles Clement has taken his studio on the road. Clement uses the tintype method of photography to create unique silver images on sheets of black metal. Tintyping was popular in the late 1800’s, but was quickly abandoned as less difficult and more reliable methods of portraiture were invented. Clement’s camera equipment is antique – some of it more than 160 years old. In harmony with old methods and equipment, he uses modern lighting and technologies to capture the faces, and often the souls, of a new generation of artists, inventors and pioneers.

    Giles Clement
    Tintype Portraits at Third Man Records
    August 22nd & 23rd
    in the Blue Room
    10am - 6pm
    4 x 5 - $50
    8 x 10 - $160

  • Otis James Nashville

    Posted by Third Man on 18 August 2014

    While questions regarding the origin of our uniforms used to be posed mainly to the ladies of TMR, ever since we upgraded the Third Man menswear to include an Otis James necktie, our fine gentlemen staff members are getting the same frequent inquiries. So, why not introduce you to the man behind the tie? Otis James is a former tuxedo-shop-workin', cross-country-bicyclin', good old fashioned hard worker. His neckties and bowties are handmade one-by-one by Otis and his small staff just 5 minutes down the road from TMR headquarters. What luck! Check out Otis' wares here.
