New Music From Canadian Artist David Myles

One of the things I love most about owning this website (although I honestly love EVERYTHING about owning it) is that I am introduced to artists I might never come across.  Canadian David Myles is one of those artists.

We All Need To Know Eric Erdman

Some friends are big supporters of Alabama-based singer-songwriter Eric Erdman; since we have similar taste in music (we met at AmericanaFest), they suggested I would enjoy his recent release, It’s Not Like You Don’t Know Me. They were right!!!

I have had the privilege to see Dan Whitener, the terrific banjo player with hip-hop bluegrass band Gangstagrass as well as with the newgrass band Man About a Horse, a number of times (only with Gangstagrass) and thoroughly enjoy his style and versatility.

Kingsley Flood Will Rock You

I have been a fan of Kingsley Flood since I first saw them perform at the Lowell Summer Music Series at least six years ago, and the love continues.

Another Other

Another Other

They recently released a new album – Another Other – which is their most personal album to date, and it will be featured at their upcoming show at The Sinclair on Friday, November 18th. Tickets are still available here and you need to be at the show! Both openers – Leland Sundries and Jenny Dee and the Deelinquents – are killer and you should catch them too.

Americana/Roots Rocker You Want To Know

I was lucky enough to see The Texas Gentlemen and Friends at Newport Folk Festival this year; they delivered one of my favorite sets of the Festival. The Gentlemen are a collaborative of Texas musicians, one of whom is guitarist Kirby Brown.

I spoke with Kirby later that day and then ran into him and several other Gentlemen at the Americana Music Association Festival and Conference a couple of months later. I am now the lucky recipient of his new EP Out of Exile 1 and I love it!
