"...A group of Austin songwriters had flown to Denmark earlier in the week to meet and co-write with Danish musicians. Sequestered at Engelsholm Castle near Bredsten for three days, Troy Campbell, Scrappy Jud Newcomb, Danny Malone, Matt the Electrician, and Nathan Felix, who also performed as the Austin Five, communed and produced music with a Scandinavian collective that included Danish artists Anna Bell, Ida Wenoe Bach, and Vibeke Falden; Lara Runarsdottir and Johan Kristinsson from Iceland; Norway's Therese Aune; and Brandur Enni from the Faroe Islands...."

"...Although it was directed by Jollyville member Dano Johnson, "She Left Me for Jesus" is not a Jollyville Pictures production and instead flies under the banner of Collection Agency Films LLC, which Johnson formed with Austin musician cum jack-of-all-trades Troy Campbell back in 2004. Collection Agency Films functions as Johnson's day job – one that he loves, to be sure – and like the bill-paying gigs that his fellow Jollyville members also have taken on, at times it seems it might subsume their freewheeling, not-really-for-profit Jollyville collective...."
"...Loose Diamonds fans will be excited to hear that they are playing at the Continental Club tomorrow night, opening for Beaver Nelson and, of course, Newcomb will be doing double duty.

"...Manager Tammy Blevins says she'll have to wait and see what Universal does, but she's "not pessimistic, not optimistic" about the future, and figures the band is in a win-win situation: One way they've got a major label deal, the other way, well, "people already know who they are."
