Jimmy Webb has been a force in music since 1965. He’s the only artist to have won Grammy Awards in music, lyrics and orchestration. Webb is also the youngest member to have been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and he has worked with artists spanning Art Garfunkel to Linda Ronstadt to Barbra Streisand to Kanye West.
Following in the footsteps of songwriter-storytellers like Bob Dylan or Johnny Cash, Josh Ritter doesn’t just sing songs of clichés or wandering words. He tells stories through the characters in his tunes, weaving tales both real and imagined to teach lessons and connect listeners. He’ll bring his tuneful show to Ithaca’s Hangar Theatre, 801 Taughannock Blvd., on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 8 p.m., where he’ll perform songs from his latest album, Gathering, released in September, with the Royal City Band.
Irv Lyons has been a component of the Syracuse music scene for several decades. For 15 years he’s been part of the searing blues rock of The Ripcords, with Lyons, a left-handed player, ripping his right-handed guitar upside-down. Now Lyons is hopeful that his recent nomination for the Native American Music Awards (Nammys) will help show the community that he’s more than a lead player and singer: He’s a songwriter, too.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
