No Depression has been serving the Americana, alt-country and roots music community since 1995.
Over the nine years that Gilded Palace of Sin promoted gigs in Brighton, no band created a greater stir than Canada’s magnificent The Sadies. A truly exceptional group of musicians, brothers Travis and Dallas Good, Mike Belitsky and Sean Dean played many memorable and exciting shows for us. Few were more special than the night they performed with Travis/Dallas’ parents, Bruce and Margaret, at Concorde 2.

There’s a familiar comfortable feeling that comes over you when you listen to the music of Charlie Mosbrook. The guy has a rich, worldly voice that sounds like it was broken in slowly, like a well-loved instrument. Take a little Kris Kristofferson, a bit of Jim Croce, and perhaps a smidgen of Gordon Lightfoot, and you’ll start to get an idea of his sound. On his latest release, “Something To Believe,” Mosbrook delivers a dozen songs, almost all of which are beautifully rich in…Continue

We're back again with our annual guide to the hugely humongous Northwest Folklife Festival, this Memorial Day Weekend, May 24-27, 2013. This is the largest community music festival in the nation, with (last I checked) 800+ bands, 25+ stages, and so much music and dance that it's physically impossible to see even a small fraction of the things you'd like to see. Now, some people like to wander around the festival, a…Continue

SHININ’ LIVE is the DVD and the ass-kickin', hip-grinding and smile making soundtrack CD of the concert at Bootleggers Bar in Kendal, England is included as a free Extra.
I can remember the night, as if it was yesterday, when I was standing in front of a packed crowd who had come from all over the UK to see this special gig in a Bar that appeared to have been tele-ported direct from Nashville.
The album opens with Bar Owner Jonty…Continue

In the spring of 2012, two years since his move to Nashville from Detroit, Kurt Marschke connected with another Motor City transplant, JD Mack (formerly of Whitey Morgan & the 78s). After searching for new musical blood to make a new record with, Kurt and JD partnered up with Brad Pemberton (Ryan Adams & The Cardinals), Mike Webb (Poco), Pete Finney (Dixie Chicks, Hank Jr.), Kim Collins (Smoking…Continue

We/Or/Me is Bahhaj Taherzadeh, a Chicago-based, Irish-born artist whose music has quietly and gradually been attracting the attention of critics over recent years. Jon Martin calls it “the soundtrack to your most quiet moments”, Sean Michaels says, it's a salve and a peace, and Robin Hilton at NPR has been a consistent advocate of the “wise and slightly weary voice, strolling through delicate melodies and heartbreaking narratives.”…Continue

Cinematic and atmospheric Alt-Country
After nearly 50 years as a music fan and 15 as a reviewer I still get excited about discovering new bands and having my breath taken away by songs and tunes that I’ve not heard before.
I was aware of I See Hawks in L.A. but only owned 3 tracks on VA compilations when this album arrived, so was only mildly interested at the prospect of listening to it.
Well; it only took 15 seconds of a…Continue
