Getting to Know Zak Smith -- Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist

Zak Smith is from New Jersey and proud of it. There’s an incredibly large musical legacy in that state and Zak works hard at maintaining his place within it. As one music critic pointed out, “Zak Smith proves his worth with passionate vocals and concisely written songs from the gut.” What more could you ask for?  Not much. 

Zak Smith is one of 24 emerging artists chosen for this year’s Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.  The Emerging Artist showcase is always one of the highlights…

Chris Isaak's Life Beyond the Sun

In 2011, Chris Isaak took the long overdue step of recording an album at Sun Studios in Memphis, Tenn. It wasn't just any album, it was faith interpretations of classic songs by his musical mentors and heroes: Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins. It didn’t take much of a leap of imagination to predict that the album would be something fine. It captures the spirit of those sessions from so long ago with respect, but also with…

Chris O’Connell - Be Right Back (Album Review)

The art of feeling a song’s essence  -- color, range, control, and style -- and giving it all to you is the domain of the great jazz singers, like Betty Carter, Abbey Lincoln, Carmen McRae, Sarah Vaughan; and the great pop singers, like Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt. Chris O’Connell has a voice that carries you up with her when it soars, soothes you with a mother’s loving croon, brings out the rockin’ rabble in you, and…

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 …
