Blame Sally: Speeding Ticket and a Valentine

         Blame Sally are an all-woman band from California who've been on the go for ten years, building quite a following over that time. The four band members came into this band from various musical backgrounds and accidentally discovered they'd hit on something successful. Easy to see why they've been successful; each of them has multiple strengths as musicians, writers and singers and they blend their talents so successfully that you couldn't identify any of them as the one the others…

Jon Byrd: Down at the Well of Wishes

 http://www.jonbyrd.com/

It's a little confusing that there is a Jon Byrd and also a Jonathan Byrd who are enjoying notable careers in country music. Well, Jon Byrd hails from Alabama but has been based in Nashville for a while, making a name for himself as both guitarist and songwriter. He appears to be good pals with Eric Brace and Peter Cooper, two guys much lauded on Flyinshoes in…

Joe West: "Aberdeen, SD"

   www.joewestmusic.com     

A little while ago Joe West made a trio of albums over a five year period that remain essential listening as far as I'm concerned. Using country music as his background (always played in the finest loose-but-together style) he brought to life a succession of tales of the world around him, singing about lovers and friends and…

My album of the week: Slaid Cleaves - Sorrow and Smoke (Live at the Horseshoe Lounge)

 

Call me naive, but I'd have thought that a songwriter and performer of Slaid Cleaves' stature would be able to make his living from music. I've just discovered from his website that he works as a subject in drugs trials to cover the bills in between tours, and somehow that saddens me. It's not so  much that he has to do that sort of stuff, it's more to do with the strange scale of rewards in the music business. Slaid…

Anna Coogan: The Wasted Ocean

www.annacoogan.com  

The sea offers so much inspiration to the imagination: it can be a blank canvas, a means of escape to fresh pastures, an opportunity for adventure or a passageway to the world beyond this one – as it is in many folk legends. More prosaically, living in a coastal community gives you an appreciation of the wealth to be…

Donal Hinely: The Famous Rocket Cage

 www.donalhinely.com      

This album may well have been recorded pretty much at the same time as Tori Sparks' album, subject of my previous post. It certainly features some of the same personnel gathered in the studio with producer David Henry - Viktor Krauss on bass, Will Kimbrough on guitars and David Mead popping in as a guest vocalist.  Texan Donal Hinely has been based in…

Tori Sparks: Until Morning/Come Out Of The Dark

www.torisparks .com

There seems to be a bit of a retro fashion at the moment to issue music as if on a piece of vinyl, with nominated “sides”. Tori Sparks has gone a step further than most by issuing these thirteen new songs as a double cd package. I’m sure they could all have fitted on one disc but, wishing to distinguish between…

Case Hardin: Every Dirty Mirror

       

http://www.clubhouserecords.co.uk/artists/case-hardin/

 This is probably the most interesting UK Americana album I’ve heard this year and almost certainly the most American sounding that I’ve ever heard from a UK act. Self-confident and unafraid to experiment, Every Dirty Mirror touches base with a…

My album of the week: Mike Ferrio - Good Luck Mountain (UK dates announced)

www.goodluckmountain.com

Mike Ferrio's previous band, the much-feted Tandy, came to an end with the untimely death of his musical partner Drew Glackin. Good Luck Mountain is Mike Ferrio's response to the shock and grief of that event, and also a fresh start in a new direction. Good Luck Mountain is the name he's adopted for his…
