Singer-songwriter Bill Price has a fine eye for detail, and likewise an ear for a good melody. When you put them together as on With The Eye Of A Sceptic... alongside the help of a fine cast of musicians everything you could wish for falls into place, perfectly.
Price reminds me of another mighty fine acoustic musician, singer-songwriter by the name of Chuck Brodsky of whom I will speak of in detail at…

Another vintage 2-on-1 original albums from Hux and, who better than them who already have Gene Watson, Ed Bruce, Tom T Hall, Faron Young and Gene Vincent among the acts they have featured to now add the late country icon, Marty Robbins to their catalogue.
Sure, he had made more traditional and western styled collections but here we have Robbins the stylist and a whole lot more. Both albums are retrospective…

Kieran Goss’s music isn’t of the kind that knocks you sideways or hits you full in the face, but music that draws you in. The kind that has the listener do the leg work and go search for it’s deeper meaning. Hence, the likes of his songs ‘One Boy’s Treasure’ (that lists the brilliant Beth Nielsen Chapman as one of the writers) and sad-eyed…

Boy, oh boy, what a beautiful album this is! From the stunning opening a cappella piece ‘How Can I Keep From Singing?’ the benchmark for the album is set to never waver. Although the final track, ‘Sirens’ isn’t something I‘m too enamoured with. However, the music previous to it features a feast of good stuff that borders on…

www.joanbaez.com www.razorandtie.com Joan Baez and the word folk music could just as easily be found under the same listing, whether it were in the Oxford dictionary or annals of folk music. Since she is and always will be the queen of folk. An American icon, Baez unlike some was able to mix folk music and politics without doing unlimited damage to her career. Once you have heard what Joan has got to say…Continue

www.THEWIYOS.COM Hmmm now this is a mite interesting. The Wiyos play a brand of music you could soon become addicted to, and as far as I know there is no cure. Their music is varied, and difficult to place a finger on as various influences have been absorbed by the quartet and it could be argued they do try and cover too many. The Brooklyn-based ensemble started out in 2002 as a trio, and have since gone from strength to strength as they…Continue
