"Been listening to this nonstop since I got it, although its a testament to Chris Smither's catalog depth basically none of my personal favourite songs of his are on it."

Chris Smither - Still on the Levee, A Fifty Year Retrospective (Album Review)

I first heard Chris Smither in 1970. Not live, unfortunately, but on vinyl when picking up his first record I'm A Stranger Here Myself on the Poppy label, unheard, for the simple reason that it was Townes' label. I figured -- rightly so -- any label that knew what a talent he was could certainly be trusted. It did not disappoint. The album not only included a future staple that would be covered by many folks -- most famously Bonnie Raitt -- titled "Love You Like a Man,"…

Lewisburg Music Festival (Lewisburg, W.V. - July 26, 2014)

West Virginia has a long, rich history of music festivals. Most notably the Vandalia Gathering, The Augusta Heritage Festival and the Appalachian String Band Festival. Those three are centered around Appalachian traditions, music being a primary, but not necessarily only, focus. The Music in the Mountains Bluegrass Festival serves up, as its name implies, straight ahead bluegrass.

While there are also additional, more community-based…

New Lucinda Williams Album, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, to Be Released September 30, 2014

In a press release issued this afternoon, Lucinda Williams confirmed what she has been saying from the stage for the past several months: the new album, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, will released on September 30 on her own label Highway 20 Records, in conjunction with Thirty Tigers. It will be a double CD set and perhaps a triple (or quadruple?) LP set. It will be her first album since the 2011 Blessed. Her groundbreaking…

Joseph Arthur - Lou (Album Review)

There are some moments in a musical life that are magical. This morning is one of those unexpected moments. A light rain falls in central West Virginia as the blackberries begin to ripen early this year, turning from a brilliant red to that luscious, Mercedes-Benz black, and the mail belatedly brings the new Joseph Arthur album, Lou -- an acoustic tribute to a fellow New Yorker: Lou Reed.

I remember the last time I saw Lou Reed. It was at Birdland, not as a…

Lucinda Williams-"Car Wheels On A Gravel Road" To Be Issued On Vinyl. Or Not. Well, Maybe Yes After All.

To continue my never-ending posts about all things Lucinda Williams, it has just been announced that Car Wheels on a Gravel Road will be released on vinyl on June 23, 2014. But it will not be on an American label. Instead, the EU label Music on Vinyl which regularly releases audiophile quality recordings on 180 gram vinyl is doing it.

While both Tom Overby and Lu herself have long expressed commitments to vinyl, and to getting her entire catalog on LPs, this came as…

I try to be in contact with you. It's about the Michael Hurley's photo you took.
I organise an event in Nantes (France) where Michael  will play and I wish to use this photo as visual for the promotional book we will edit. Is it possible ?
Thanks in advance,
Kind regards,

Hi Amos


      As a featured contributor to No Depression, I’m particularly keen on getting your feedback for the following – Please forgive the intrusion if you don’t have the time or inclination to reply.


      I’ve posted the following to the No Depression discussion board – you can either respond there or alternatively drop me a line at


Thanks very much for your time

Kind regards,





My name is Steve Hatch and I’m currently conducting research for my Master’s in Songwriting at Bath Spa University in Bath, England (though I happen to be an ex-pat Georgia boy).  I would be extremely grateful if you could find the time to listen to the track (link below) and answer the 2 accompanying questions.  The more detail, the better of course (more to say in my final analysis) – but all feedback will be useful and very much appreciated.


Sadly, as this is an academic pursuit, there is a deadline.  Please reply by May 20th if at all possible so that I can have time to chew over your response and include it in my final write-up.


            The track:


1)     Which artist/band(s) would you say the track is most similar to and why?


2)     Which genre(s) would you say the track belongs to and why?

I haven't seen him play live since the early 90's but I always enjoyed his performances.
