Actually, they originally went by the name Beck and Cauthen until another, more famous <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15333650/beck" target="_blank">Beck</a> took notice.<p>Their revised band name makes sense, because both men have musicians in their families. In Cauthen's case, his father was a touring musician, while his grandfather was a gospel player who taught him to play guitar.

Her record company told her to "get a hot band." So she got The Hot Band with James Burton on lead, as well as a newcomer, <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/14957279/rodney-crowell" target="_blank">Rodney Crowell</a>, on rhythm guitar and, more importantly, songwriting.

A new rock band, Leagues was formed by an amazing singer, Thad Cockrell, who'd been so disenchanted with his alt-country career that he was ready to leave the music business altogether.<p>Instead, he posed his idea for a band — one that would make audiences move and be happy — to guitarist Tyler Burkham and drummer Jeremy Lutito, Good things happened, albeit slowly, leading to Leagues' debut album, <em>You Belong Here</em>.

Hailing from different musical generations, the L.A. band's members craft a unique style which blends hip-hop and reggae with electrifying dub rhythms. Although the lineup has changed since The Lions' beginnings, the music has remained explosive and alluring.<p>The Lions' new album, <em>This Generation</em>, came out last month on the hip-hop label Stones Throw Records.

Gean West and Tommie West, The Relatives first surfaced in the 1970s with the single "Walking On." With its rhythmic fusion of traditional gospel and psychedelic funk, the quintet became known for its energetic live performances. However, the group disbanded in 1980, disappearing from the music world without so much as a full studio album to its name — until now.<p>Forty years after forming, the band released its first record, <em>The Electric Word</em>, last week; its soulful gospel songs address issues like war, poverty and inequality.
