              Michele and John Law are a husband and wife duo from Ontario, writing and singing their own brand of modern acoustic country.

www.reverbnation.com/davidlatto

          David Latto comes from Fife but I think his heart is somewhere in the wide open spaces of the American West. He played in a band for a long while but is currently re-orientating his musical career to answer the call of his cowboy heart and this four track cd is…

HANK WOJI —THERE WAS A TIME (K Z Records)

www.hankwoji.com

Adopted Texans are common today among the singer-songwriting community…. it could be something to do about the water. So receptive being the area to people of their trade and in Hank Woji.

Wisely, he has borrowed four standards to go with seven songs of his own and though ‘Loretta’ (one of the first songs from the Texas master Townes Van Zandt I became…

Malcolm Holcombe "To Drink The Rain" (Music Road Records 2011)





This album feels so effortless, the skill of the performer using a musical sleight of hand that lulls the senses with the beauty of it’s simplicity, this is Holcombe’s eighth album and has been produced by long-time sideman Jared Tyler – they know each other well and To Drink The Rain reflects… Continue

ROBYN LUDWICK —OUT OF THESE BLUES (Continental Song City)

www.robynludwick.co

 

Produced and recorded by Gurf Morlix at his Rootball Studio in Austin, Texas Out Of The Blues is fine testament of both the artist, Robyn Ludwick and himself. For it is strong in every department and with Ludwick possessing similar all round traits, vocally and otherwise to Lucinda Williams, Kelly Wills and there are also hints of Mary Gauthier to her music Ludwick strikes a mighty blow. As blues, country and blues…

www.redhouserecords.com

What a beautiful and peaceful piece of music from the Ukrainian-born and American raised mandolin and fiddle instrumentalist, Peter Ostroushko a man who is truly of all seasons so broad are his musical influences. With a foot in folk, bluegrass, blues, country, jazz and his latest addition, classical Ostroushko could if he weren’t the man he is spread himself thin.

Carrie Elkin: Call It My Garden

 

www.carrieelkin.com

There's been a lot of good new music in 2011 already, but I think Carrie Elkin's new one is my album of the year so far. Her first release for Red House Records, there is something very special in the fact that Call It My Garden is all but formally a twin release with Danny Schmidt's Man Of Many Moons. Danny Schmidt is Carrie Elkin's partner and…

HEATHER MYLES —LIVE IN LONDON AND TEXAS (Floating World)

www.myspace.com/floatingworld.music 

West coast gal, Heather Myles has long championed the values of traditional country music, especially the west coast Bakersfield sound through her work. Like a breath of fresh air she came on to the scene in 1992 and remained so for over ten years, but sadly her career and music has since become stale. It is as if after playing the music, influenced by Merle Haggard, Buck…

Bow Thayer and Perfect Trainwreck: Bottom Of The Sky

As a fuzzy guitar riff spins you into the opening song, there's something about the raucous energy and apocalyptic tone that sounds very familiar; it took me a while but Bow Thayer has…

TOM T HALL —50 GREATEST HITS (Humphead)

Yes, a bumper 50 hit songs spread over two cds. What amazing value this album is, as most all collections on Humphead are. As country music’s famed Storyteller’s music from the most prolific period in his recording career is jammed tighter than sardines in a can.

Starting with his 1967 hit ‘I Washed My Face In The Morning Dew’ right on through the…

ABIGAIL WASHBURN —CITY OF RUFUGE (Foreign Children Records / Rounder)

www.abigailwashburn.com

www.rounder.com

On first listen I had my reservation about City Of Refuge; and not unlike her last album (Abigail Washburn & The Sparrow Quartet) I was about to make too hasty a judgement of the music of innovative banjo playing singer-songwriter Abigail Washburn. Now that would have been to my great loss. Reason being her music grows on you and it…
