Remember the end of the last millennium? Remember how the Lilith Fair sold out venues across the country? Remember how artists such as Abra Moore, Patti Rothberg, Jennifer Trynin, etc. broke into the…Continue

Rod Picotte might go under the "Americana" heading too, but this is pretty good stuff:

John Wicks of The Records (Remember Starry Eyes?) and Debbi Peterson (Remember The Bangles?) have been writing and doing the occasional acoustic show together. They were fantastic. They did a Songwriter's Square show near LA that I'm told might become a regular thing. Worth checking out. Here's a review of a recent show.

Langhorne Slim. A great talent with a mix of folk, soul, rock. He tours quite a bit-- check 'im out.

I think a lot of people attending the up coming Social Distortion tour this fall will walk away floored by the opening artist. Some will trade in their Social D. cd's for a copy of his. Frank Turner.

This is a song about her father, who had just lost two brothers, one twin within a short period. He was very stoic, according to Ms. Speace, when he told her about the deaths. When she gave an interview about this song earlier this year (2010), she said she had never told him the song was for him. Great, great song.

A review of The Allman Brothers Band -One Way Out-

This is one of the finest books that I have read in a long time. This book is fascinating and doesn’t let up.

Johnny Cash - The Sun Years -1954-1958

When the barriers that separated pop and country music began to crumble in the wake of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash was one the first young country artists to take a place in the pop charts. Ironically, as hillbilly music slicked itself up in search of a wider market. Johnny Cash, broke through with a sound that was so sparse and under -produced that it must have seemed anachronistic even to the more conservative elements of the Nashville establishments. Johnny Cash was born in the remote rural…See More
