Written by on 19 November 2020

Not a moment passes in the new song “Tomorrow Is Today” from singer/songwriter Ed Roman that you don’t feel the synergy between Roman’s lyrics and his exquisite guitar playing.

Sébastien Lacombe’s “Fly” LP

Written by on 12 November 2020

With rollicking string-led grooves, mighty folk melodies and a homespun Canadian lyricism coming together inside of nine tracks that could each act as a single on par with the starring “My Thousand Dollar Car,” Sébastien Lacombe’s Fly is undeniably the artist’s most mature collection of material so far.

Bill Abernathy  – “More Than Meets The Eye”

Written by on 10 November 2020

It’s happening around us, Bill Abernathy sings in his new song, “More Than Meets The Eye”.

Written by on 31 October 2020

Stepping out of the shadows with a gentle, flute-born melody, Les Fradkin’s “System Crash” doesn’t start off with a lot of fireworks, but don’t let this initially soft introduction fool you – what’s about to come pouring out of these speakers is as potent as anything the legendary player has put his name on thus […]

“Smile When You’re Wasted” from Marc Miner

Written by on 28 October 2020

With an easygoing groove behind a rustic set of strings, there’s nothing cosmetically experimental about the surface appeal of “Everything but Modest,” but upon closer inspection, this outlaw country balladry is anything but conventional structurally. Like the other ten songs we find on the new record Smile When You’re Wasted from Marc Miner, there’s a certain rock […]

Ten Penny Gypsy – “Fugitive Heart” (LP)

Written by on 23 October 2020

Ten Penny Gypsy’s Fugitive Heart, despite its faithful invocation of traditional Americana, is a thoroughly modern recording.
