Carolina Story – Chapter Two (Album Review)

Strong country duets from Nashville husband and wife

The empathy shared by great duet singers can take your breath away. The ways in which a duo's voices complement, compete and provoke one another, the weaving of a harmony line above, below and around a melody, and the connection of two voices as they race around banked curves make listeners eavesdroppers as much audience. The Nashville-based Carolina Story, Ben and Emily Roberts, is…

Waylon, John Prine, Kinky, Gram Parsons ... Come Together

Preface: This began as a foreword for a small collection of pictures and articles I am assembling for a book I plan to self-publish. As the memories piled on, the words accumulated into a short memoir and loose chronology of what happened in my life and on paper between 1967 and 1979. All of my No Depression offerings are referenced throughout this brief biography.

Stoney Burns, editor of Buddy Magazine (Dallas, Texas) was kind enough to let me use the…

Getting to Know the Levins - Falcon Ridge Emerging Artists

Huey Lewis and the News have been known to sing about “The Power of Love,” but it was “the power of music” that brought Julia and Ira Levin together.  Their collaboration is a mighty one and it sure feels like it was a union that was truly meant to be. As they state in the interview below, they are committed to making the world a happier place through their music. There’s no doubt that they are achieving their goal.

 The Levins are one of 24 emerging artists…

Dave & Phil Alvin & the Guilty Ones – Dakota Jazz Club (Minneapolis, Minn. – July 26, 2014)

“My brother Dave is a triple threat and I’m so proud of him – singer, songwriter, and guitar player.” That’s what Phil Alvin told a July 26 sellout crowd at the Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis, Minn. The show was winding down but fans were totally pumped as the Alvin brothers exchanged pleasantries and showed no sign of their famed sibling rivalry after Dave split from the Blasters. If anything, the duo was good-natured and philosophical; especially Dave, who mentioned Phil’s brush…

Celebrating 40 Years of Schoolkids Records: An Interview with Owner Stephen Judge

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Watergate. That's not really anything to celebrate, it's not an accomplishment, and what's that got to do with music? Nothing. It simply marks the inevitable passage of time. But, 2014 also marks the 40th anniversary of Raleigh, N.C.'s Schoolkids Records, which is an accomplishment and is definitely something worth celebrating.

iTunes and streaming have cut into record…

The Post-Newport Earthquake: Watkins Family Hour

Did you feel it? That's what everybody in Los Angeles asks each other whenever a shake or quake rattles and rolls through the valleys and flatlands. Sometimes there's just a release of pressure beneath the crust, and other times it's an up and down jolt that lasts only a second. And then you forget about it. Until the next time. 

Sunday night there was a seismic shift. A movement of the tectonic plates. A tilting of the axis. Not in…
