Brigitte DeMeyer - Savannah Road (Album Review)

Southern Gothic Country to make your spine tingle

I first encountered Brigitte DeMeyer a couple of years ago when she shared a stage with legendary guitarist Will Kimbrough (who co-wrote 10 of the 13 tracks here alongside Ms. DeMeyer); and while I remember enjoying her performance; sadly she was over shadowed by Kimbrough who the majority of the audience had come to see, and salivated every time he touched his guitar.

Subsequently I’ve bought a couple of her…

Jo Bartlett - Highway Found (Album Review)

4 track sampler of Modern Folk with a 70's twist

As there wasn’t a Press Release with this CD I’ve had to do my own research and I find that Jo Bartlett has been around the music industry in a variety of guises for more years than her photograph would have us believe; (she must have begun as a schoolgirl) recording intermittently and releasing her own solo album in 2010.

What goes on to be a reasonably impressive quartet of songs gets off to a God-awful start…

Dan Amor - Rainhill Trials (Album Review)

Subtle and Sweet folk music from Wales             

Most people reading this review will probably be of an age where they have pretty defined music tastes and don’t have the time or inclination to readily discover anything too radically new. I too am a bit like that; but as a music reviewer I can still discover new genres that can spin my preconceptions 359 degrees. This album by Dan Amor has just done that for me.

I was intrigued by the opening song,…

Jessica Rae - Freedom Avenue (Album Review)

Darn pretty Country music from a darn pretty lady

Jessica Rae took me by surprise on this; her second album; judging by her portrait on the cover; I was anticipating something twee and antiseptic; but right from the start with Holes in Your Shoes; she couples the gritty edge of her home town Chicago with the classic Country licks of her adoptive home Nashville to…

Hello Alan, 

I have been a long  time reader of ND and have been on the site for over a year now I guess,,,,, I still miss the HELL out of the ND magazine, by far the best Americana rag ever! 

I thoroughly enjoyed the review of Jarrod's EP that you did; it boggles my mind how a talent like JD doesn't get more attention.... he sure deserves it!

I presume that you are aware that he is currently on tour with David Ford, they are playing the Cactus Club this evening, I wish that I lived close enough to take that show in! 

David Ford is another talent that is extremely unappreciated, a brilliant writer and a skilled multi instrumentalist, he is not to be missed if the opportunity presents itself.

Hi Al, very interesting Top 10 etc. although I haven't heard of half of them. Which just means I'll have to check them out. Cheers

Howdy Alan, I got your friend request but don't know where to respond!

Hi Alan,

Nice to make contact - thanks. Music photography (almost exclusively 'americana') is a hobby - I have hundreds of photos but only started posting to No Depression in the last year. At the moment they are only on No Depression, so really only a few. I also have a YouTube channel (MissOhio1000) where I post videos of the bands that I photograph.
