Rebbecca Loebe On Tour (and new album)

Rebecca Loebe’s new album Blink was inspired by mix tapes and the IRS.

Blink was born one summer night on the way home from a gig in South Texas when a song that Loebe had put on about a million high school mix tapes came on the radio. She says, “Suddenly I was transported back in time…

LYNN MILES with Keith Glass —ROAD (Continental Song City)


Canadian-born, and much travelled, singer-songwriter Lynn Miles is one of the finest of her genre. Her beautiful vocals and lyrics coupled with the stellar playing of Keith Glass (acoustic, electric guitar, mandolin and harmony vocals) are a true delight. Miles works under the shadow of…

It is always a special day when a new album featuring the multi-talented Tim O’Brien comes along, and Where The River Meets The Road is one is no exception. O’Brien isn’t only a master of the fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo and bouzouki and a great songwriter (and fine producer) but…

JON ZEEMAN - Blue Room (Membrane Records)

Inline image 1
South Florida based singer and guitarist Jon Zeeman has here eight fine original compositions and covers of Jimi Hendrix's 'Still Rainin' Still Dreamin', and Robert Johnson's (via The Rolling Stones, I strongly suspect) 'Love In Vain'. Blue Room is a pleasingly straight-forward blues set, with the occasional rock tinges always kept in check and never over-done (the only non-blues based track is the instrumental title track, running to just under a minute). The…

SHORTSTUFF — BIG BLUE (Blonde On Blonde/ Digital (Records) Limited

Blues brothers Dave Thomas and Hugh Gregory debuted on the UK folk club circuit in 1974, and though they recorded a few tracks in 1975 the tapes were thought to be long, long gone. Before that is, the tapes reappeared in a Hackney attic. Now the best have been joined by some…

DANNY BARNES —STOVE UP (Wendell Records)


Banjo playing singer-songwriter and more, Danny Barnes is one of those acts overflowing with talent. Some of you will remember him from his days in the Bad Livers, here Barnes (banjo, vocals, 12-string guitar on “Get it While You Can”) revisits some traditional including a couple from Don Stover (the album in fact is a homage to the late banjo great), a…

Atlanta Georgia based band, husband and wife duo Lauren Staley and Jason Morrow and band mates throw a wide enough loop to ensure their brand of Americana country music remains sounding fresh throughout.

Bob Wootton dies

Sad to relatef the passing of Bob Wooton. Bob was Johnny Cash's guitarist for over 30 years, maintaining the signature boom chic a chic sound after the death of Luther Perkins in a house fire, and for many years after Johnny passed with the Tennesse Three and lately with Medicine Music family fold members Six Mile Grove (we worked with them on Bobs last record release "Guaranteed Cash".

Here is the moment Bob got the job. Cash was performing in Fayetteville Arkansas, at a campaign rally… Continue

DELTA MOON – Cabbagetown (Jumping Jack 12017)

This is the eighth studio album from this four-piece band out of Atlanta, Georgia, with nine original compositions and a throbbing cover of Mississippi Delta bluesman Son House’s classic ‘Death Letter’, more than a little different from other versions you may have heard. The band is more of a roots-rock outfit than a straight blues band, with an upbeat approach and an ability to consistently hit a seemingly effortless groove married to a memorable melody and…
