Adam Puddington

Lovely record a bit Ron Sexsmith in tone...superb..friend of The Guthries...or Minnikins as now are...

http://www.adampuddington.com/



Adam Puddington is one of Almonte, Ontario's golden sons, and he wears the legacy proudly. Rural Canadiana seeps into his songs, bringing the curious beauty of rivers, wildlife, rosaries and trains. Especially rivers and trains,… Continue

Micah B. Smaldone



Red River Rough Cut





Red River Rough Cut is intended as a sampler for a new album that Micah is working on. The 5 untitled pieces on the CDR are simply great songs and remind me of the best work of Jimmy Webb or Townes Van Zandt while sounding nothing like either. The songs are stripped bare and every note and word is neccesary with nothing out of place.





Currently Micah is touring in the UK and Europe. Below are… Continue

John Train - Leachman's Ghost

At the Triumph Leader Museum, which houses a collection of gifts given to Saddam Hussein over the years, curators had removed things from the display cases and squirrelled them away for safekeeping, although it was doubtful how safe anything would be anywhere in Baghdad once the bombs began to fall. I went to the museum to take another look at the gun that had been used in 1920 to assassinate Colonel Gerard Leachman, a British officer who spent the First World War in the deserts of what was… Continue

Lou Vargo - American Disaster





Received this E.P. through the mail and despite the usual huff n' puff it had some quality graphics and so I gave it a spin. Frank and honest recordings with an amiable straightforwardness that refreshing. Jack Hale ( erstwhile J.Cash producer) says..



"It is Lou Vargo...the look, the person, the song, the voice, the guitar, it is his persona. He wakes up and goes to sleep being this person...it is something you have or don't have...very hard to fake it in… Continue

A.J.Downing - River of Life

Great record....guy who met Earle in Copperhead Road days and it filtered through twenty years of being a electrician...real songs, real playing, real sweet....

David Childers - 20 Questions and featured song (New!! see player on side bar)



1.. WHERE WERE YOU BORN, WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?



I was born in Charlotte, North Carolina; and grew up in the small textile

town of Mount Holly, North Carolina, 10 miles from Charlotte. I went off to

Military School and college after that when I was fifteen, then graduate

school and different jobs; wound up back in Mount Holly with my wife Linda,

and our two kids, Robert (my drummer now), and Meghan (my sweetheart and… Continue

Thad Cockerell & Danny Barnes: Maze Nottingham 26th April 2004



A double bill at the Maze on a blustery english day of april showers but a brighter climate in the end when these artists started to shine. I had followed some of Danny Barnes's convoluted and mightily impressive musical journey from The Bad Livers through to Bill Frisell and Jim ( Basketball Diaries) Carrol. What I wasn't prepared for was the sheer punk energy of attack of his banjo playing as everything but the kitchen sink seemed to be hinted… Continue

Jeff Talmadge: Kind Of Everything

        About eleven months ago I posted a "catch-up" review, still available on this blog, of Jeff Talmadge's previous two albums and mentioned that there was a new one in the pipeline. Well, here it is,  and pretty much everything that I wrote last time round applies to this new work.  Jeff is a Texan singer/songwriter very much in the tradition of Guy Clark and in a career that spans more than a decade now he has been producing a steady stream of new material that has a consistently high…

Yvette Landry: Should Have Known

From deepest Louisiana comes Yvette Landry and her own high quality take on honky tonk music. All the familiar elements are here: the fast and raucous numbers to dance your socks off to are interlaced with the slower numbers that give the chance for a slow smooch, a breather or to get the drinks in. Yvette herself has played a variety of instruments for a whole bunch of other performers but here she's very much the front woman, concentrating on the vocal performance and calling on a host of… Continue
