Katy Boyd: Paper Hearts

This album comes from last year but seemed to have slipped under my radar till now. She sounds pure Nashville but Katy Boyd is a native Californian who has spent a good part of her adult life in the UK. A stop-start musical career has revived in recent years with her return/debut album (Ain’t No Fairy Tale) getting quite a warm reception. This most recent album came about from Katy meeting guitarist/producer Thomm…

Here we have another country star that tragically died before his time. Like Patsy Cline and Hank Williams and you can also add Buddy Holly, Gram Parsons to the list) he was just hitting his stride when his life was taken in a fatal car crash in 1960.


As a budding performer Horton was actually taken under the wing of Hank when they were both playing on Shreveport's…

Two cds and 56 tracks no less come in this package of material by the late, never to be forgotten Patsy Cline. Made up of two albums featured in their entirety (Patsy Cline – 1957 and Showcase – 1962) plus a feast of singles that include such classics as ‘Crazy Dreams’, ‘Stop The World’, her stunning take of ‘Lovesick Blues’ and the song that swept me away (and still does) the first time I heard it. I am talking…

O’BRIEN PARTY OF 7 —REINCARNATION (The Songs Of Roger Miller) (Howdy Skies) 

Here is a tribute record of a difference. One thing, it is a family affair as the families of Tim O’Brien and his sister, Mollie who are no strangers of sharing a recording studio. Since they have made three duet albums together and long…

TUPELO —DIRTY MONEY (IRL / Crashed Records) 

Dublin-based, Tupelo is an exciting new combo who apply the energy of the Old Crow Medicine Show to their music. As a rich head swirling mix of guitars, 5-string banjo, double bass, mandolin, bodhran, piano, percussion, sax and fiddle aid the lead vocals of James Cramer (who writes all the tunes) in splendid fashion. Since I am a huge fan of the Old Crows, Tupelo is a…

Two 1970s albums plus five additional cuts, two of which are duets with Sherry Bryce make up another bumper package released by the Australian reissue label Raven.

Tillis was one of country music’s biggest sellers during the 1970s and though he never made much of an impression outside the States the Florida-born act who is also the father of Pam Tillis was a top performer. A big name…

Hearing the voice of Lera Lynn on the album was both a first and a delightful experience. All too many new fledgling acts are built up as being the best since sliced bread but in reality they are at best, average. Sadly more often than not I would go a step further and offer forgettable. Yet as already mentioned that wasn’t the case with Lera Lynn. Not only did one or two songs catch my attention…

The Low Anthem, Proud Brighton Ballroom. June 18th 2012

I’m used to seeing the stage for a Low Anthem show strewn with all manner of instruments but a couple of tins of paint? No, me neither! 

The indie-folk group, a quintet in its current incarnation, was making a welcome return to Brighton and it was somewhat of a surprise to learn that the choice of venue was the 200 capacity Proud Brighton Ballroom. Literally filled to the rafters, this intimate setting nevertheless augured well for their particular brand of melodious harmonies and…

KIMBERLEY MURRAY, BOB MANNING —ONE NIGHT ONLY! (Bourbon Haze Records / Heart Of Texas Records)


Boy, what a treat this is. Two traditional country performers who just happen to be man and wife sharing one record. Who rekindle the art of duet performances better than most of the originals. Fans of older country music will feel they have died and passed through St. Peter’s Gates once they hear the opening bars of this album and be like Oliver when it is finished hunger for…
