Album of the Week: Connie Smith - Long Line of Heartaches

I can't pretend: I don't actually like what Connie Smith calls "traditional country music".  I have a passing acquaintance with some of the music from the 50s, 60s and 70s but whilst I can have some admiration for the likes of Patsy Cline and George Jones, it's never been music that I've really liked.…

Kirsten Thien: Delicious

www.kirstenthien .com

Blessed with a great voice - a bit of Janis, a bit of Aretha -  New York-based Kirsten Thien has been honing her style for some years now, gigging hard and making plenty of friends along the way. Delicious is her third album and producer/co-writer Erik Boyd has pushed the boat out in terms of guest…

1950s – 1960s honky tonk singer Webb Pierce who enjoyed a succession of hits on the country music charts both solo and by way of duets with Kitty Wells and Red Sovine was a crucial part of country music for the best part of twenty-five years. Still a force when the two listed albums were made, Pierce is heard here doing justice to a parcel of…

Record of the Week: Girls, Guns and Glory - Sweet Nothings


Find Gigs

This is one of those where you turn the volume up and hang on for the ride: this band bring you hard-driving rhythms, fast fingered guitar work and a collective drive that could leave you breathless in their wake if Girls, Guns and Glory didn't pause occasionally for a slower number in best honky-tonk tradition. These guys are based in New England…

Robert Brown: Road Dog

Just six tracks here, including two versions of the title song, so I guess this is more of a taster for what the man can do than a full-on career statement.  Clearly a man lost in music,  Robert has been a touring musician since his teens, developing a formidable finger picking style on his guitar over…
