Bluegrass Band Rock Hearts Releases Starry Southern Nights 

Written by on 10 November 2020

Thrusting forward with an intensity unparalleled in other genres in “Stagger Lee” while crushing us with more modest rhythms in “Don’t Take It Too Bad.” Manipulating a mild country melody in the title cut from Starry Southern Nights only to turn around and give us a drunken swing as enticing as an old fashioned country breakfast in […]

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”. Disguised as a politically-charged tune, Abernathy smuggles in his own mesmerizing electric guitar fused with folk/Americana storytelling. The unforgettable percussion beats are another section in this must-listen. “More Than Meets The Eye”, in my eyes, is more than a […]

Bluegrass Band Carolina Blue Releases LP

Written by on 5 November 2020

“Well Virginia’s for lovers, and lord knows you’ve had a-plenty / But you weren’t supposed to love them while you was a-lovin’ me” declares a confident but battered lead vocal in “Raining in Roanoke,” the tone of the lyrics skewing that of the singing with an emotionality the audience can’t help but embrace.

Les Fradkin’s “System Crash”

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. The production is top notch on each of its ten songs and this approach to the material helps frame it in a modern sonic light rather than sounding like music from out of another time. There are such qualities […]

Project Grand Slam Founder Robert Miller Releases Solo Album 

Written by on 14 October 2020

For a man who is just now making his solo debut, it would be an understatement of immense proportions to say that Robert Miller doesn’t already have a gold-standard reputation in indie fusion circles. Miller’s first record away from the Project Grand Slam moniker, Summer of Love, builds on that reputation by expanding on the funk, […]
