Secret Stash Records announced on Saturday, June 17, that soul singer Sonny Knight has died at age 69. Knight enjoyed a late-career revival, thanks to support from local record label and collective Secret Stash and his fiery horn-fueled band the Lakers. In 2013, Sonny Knight and the Lakers released the acclaimed album I'm Still Here, and followed that up with 2016's Sooner or Later.
In 2015, then-President Barack Obama released his summer playlist on Spotify. The playlist included such artists as Aretha Franklin, Sly and the Family Stone, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan — and Philadelphia band Low Cut Connie. "That was nuts," recalls Low Cut Connie frontman Adam Wiener. "The guy at The New York Times tweeted, 'I can't understand we live in a world where the President of the United States listens to Low Cut Connie.'"
There is not much I’d rather be doing this summer than spending the day running around in the woods, followed by some afternoon cocktails with friends and family. The hike gets the blood pumping, and the libations keep it moving. I find that the simple things are the best things. On Monday afternoons, my wife Julie and I have been going on hikes at various spots in Rhode Island while our kids are in school.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
