After many years playing in front of the Guilty Men that featured Dave long time friend, the recently deceased Chris Gaffney he found the old memories too hard to shake, hence he has changed direction a little and formed an all-woman band.…

JESSE WINCHESTER LOVE FILLING STATION (Appleseed Recordings)

Oh, what have I done to deserve a ‘new’ record from Jesse Winchester? Love Filling Station is Winchester’s first album since ‘Gentlemen Of Leisure’ (1999) on Sugar Hill and only his third studio recording since 1981 and from the first note it sounds like it is something he does everyday and never tires off.… Continue

JEFFREY FOUCAULT SHOOT THE MOON RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES (Continental Song City )





Signature Sounds / Continental Song City



In recent times few acts have come to my attention any finer as all round acts than singer-songwriter, Jeffrey Foucault, and who not only writes a fine song but can play a bit too! Also, as this album with a sub-title of A Collection —Jeffrey Foucault Sings The Songs Of John Prine he is likewise a fine interpreter. John Prine fans would argue, and quite rightly, that no one can better or in most cases come near the… Continue

THE FLATLANDERS. HILLS AND VALLEYS (New West Records)



Made up of old friends, Texans Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely and Butch Hancock with the help of among others, producer / multi-talented musician Lloyd Maines they once again come through with a fine album. Each act has a unique rough-hewn vocal style and a cutting edge that has remained strong. Added to this is their ability to tell a story in song in such a fashion to rank with the best —today or yesterday.

Since reforming a decade ago the boys have continued to plough… Continue

Gurf Morlix —Last Exit Happyland

GURF MORLIX

LAST EXIT HAPPYLAND
www.gurfmorlix.com

When it comes to hard, gritty and richly coloured Americana few people create it better than Gurf Morlix, whether as a producer (Lucinda Williams, Slaid Cleaves, Ray Wylie Hubbard etc) or as a recording act.

Strong and uncompromising both as a musician and vocalist he obtains the most from the image strewn lyrics that other than two co-writes with George Carver (I Got… Continue
