Bob Cheevers : Smoke and Mirrors

          

  The idea of marketing some music as “Americana” came about to rescue people like Bob Cheevers from falling between the cracks. After many years in music, primarily as a writer for hire, he concluded that he was too country for LA but not country enough for Nashville. The last decade or so has seen him producing a steady stream of albums that fall in his own,…

Cody McCarver : Just Might Live Forever

            A wee mention on a Scottish website for Cody McCarver, ex major league country band Confederate Railroad, is not going to make any difference to his life, so this review of his new album is for the benefit of Flyinshoes readers who might overlook a mainstream redneck country act like Mr McCarver. We’re rooting for independent artists on this site, musicians of…

Ben Bedford What We Lost

Ben Bedford is a folk singer who hails from the broad lands of the American Midwest and this is his third album, a rich collection of American tales sung in a strong authoritative voice and set to some stirring arrangements. He reminds me in his writing of some of the greats from the 60s folk revival; he picks a story that interests him and tries to get inside the heads of the…

Sam Baker, The Slaughtered Lamb, London. October 24th 2012

And so to the final date of the UK tour where the show signage indicated another sell out. We Brits have taken Sam Baker to our hearts since Bob Harris first played him on BBC Radio 2 back in April 2005; such was the response to Iron that sales of MERCY spiked incredibly and consequently set Baker on a full time career as a singer songwriter. 

Known for his keenly observational style, Baker’s writing is sparse, poetic, tender and visual. I don’t think that I can recall a writer…

Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin, Royal Festival Hall, London. October 22nd 2012

Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin have been friends for many years and I recall seeing them way back when, when Colvin was the opener for Carpenter. Since that time their friendship has developed through a shared love of music and opportunities to sing and play together, sometimes on each other’s albums but mostly privately. It was this that helped cement thoughts that perhaps they should go out on the road jointly and play the songs they adore, to their fans - and so it was that this…

Sam Baker, The Basement, Brighton. October 18th 2012

Thursday morning and I posted a new status on my Facebook page: 

Q: What's better than going to a Sam Baker show today?

A: Going to two Sam Baker shows today!!!!!

Amongst the replies were comments such as ‘how lucky are you!’ ‘lucky, lucky’ and ‘what fun, enjoy!’

Perhaps I should take a moment to clarify the ‘two Sam Baker shows today’ comment - well the first was an afternoon in-store at Union Music in Lewes…
