Ray LaMontagne at the Woods at Fontanel (Nashville, Tenn. – July 25, 2014)

Ray LaMontagne writes great songs and makes great records. And that's certainly no small feat. His live shows, though, while being technically and musically superlative, really don't leave the audience with a whole lot to hang on to other than the technique and the music. There's no personal engagement on LaMontagne's part. It's as if the whole thing is an absolute imposition, start to finish. Last time I saw him, he cussed a woman out for talking down near the stage. He,…

Getting to Know Russell Kaback - Falcon Ridge Emerging Aritst

The great thing about music is that there are so many different influences. When you mix a bunch of them together, you get a totally new sound. A little bit of soul vocals, a dash of jazzy instrumentation, a heap of reggae beats, and a sprinkling of folky lyrics, combined together, equals the music of Russell Kaback. He’s got a unique sound going down, that’s for sure.

Kaback is one of 24 emerging artists chosen for this year’s …

Vancouver International Folk Festival Day Two (Jericho Beach, Vancouver, BC - July 19th, 2014)

While Friday night at the Vancouver Folk Festival focuses on main stage performances, the rest of the weekend on the sprawling festival grounds of Jericho Beach is as notable for its smaller workshop performances. This was especially true this year. This particular Saturday started with the official public announcement of Joan Baez's cancellation. Perhaps in some kind of karmic sympathy, the day's weather forecast -- originally a bit ominous -- took a turn for the…

Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery - Man Is Born for Trouble (Album Review)

The origin story of Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery is pivotal for an appreciation of Powell’s music. The name, inspired by the 1903 film The Great Train Robbery, the first silent western committed to celluloid, evokes Powell’s affinity for history, American aestheticism, and art that has passed through generations and endured technological revolutions. Hence the triptych of songs titled “Jack Kerouac,” “Leo Tolstoy” and “Walt Whitman,” on Joshua Powell & the…
