Five Questions: Bry Webb

After years of blasting it out as a member of the Constantines, singer/songwriter Bry Webb turned it all down a few notches for his new solo effort, Free Will. Written as a something of a meditation on his new role as a father to a son, the set is quieter, to be sure, but it's not without some edge. After all, you can take the boy out of the rock, but you can't take the rock out of the boy. The take-away, though, is that Webb takes on both music and parenthood seriously,…

Dan Blakeslee - Owed to the Tanglin’ Wind (Album Review)

Dan Blakeslee’s new record Owed to the Tanglin’ Wind was recorded in the eaves of an old, beautiful theatre in Providence, R.I. I don’t think any record could genuinely illustrate that fact quite as well as this one. The songs on this record bring you to that place. The environment that these songs were birthed from seeps through the sounds and textures, and the stories told on this record. It truthfully is a thing of…

The Pop Presidents: Nixon

One of the things that should prompt a thankful pride in all Americans is how our country’s presidents so often and so willingly reach for the hot handle of responsibility. In fact, a famous president once said, “The buck stops here.” This series, “The Pop Presidents,” seeks to honor an aspect of the last eleven president’s responsibilities that is often overlooked – presiding over the growth of pop music, specifically the genre known as rock and…

Getting to Know Roy Schneider -- Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist

Roy Schneider has presence.  It’s impossible to dismiss him when watching him on stage.  His music makes a powerful impact on the listener. As one music critic says “Roy Schneider fits in the same bag with such classic singer-songwriters as Guy Clark, John Prine, Steve Goodman and Townes van Zandt.” That’s some bag!  Add the keyboard and vocals contributed by Kim Mayfield (Roy’s wife) and you’ve got a winning combination.
