Welcome, April Wolfe!

Common Folk Music  is a blog about music, not just folk music, but all music ranging from indie to alt-country to bluegrass, because music is for the "Common Folk". And, my mission as sole founder and writer is to provide fair and balanced reviews and artist features to open the door and make the way smoother for independent musicians, as well as, changing America's musical preference one person at a time. Music is the opiate of the masses, and I'm its pusher.

Coleman Lantern & A Radio: My Tribute To Jason Molina

It has taken me a long time to pay tribute to Jason in a way I feel appropriate. Of course, the tribute album Farewell Transmission: The Music of Jason Molina is coming out on April 22, 2014 via Rock The Cause, and the album is a great homage to Jason and his music. However, I still feel compelled to do more, so I offer the following.First, here is a little…See More

Q&A with Lydia Loveless

Two years after the critical success of her breakout second album, Indestructible Machine, Lydia Loveless comes out rockin' and swingin' with her fourth album, Somewhere Else, which is by far my favorite release of 2014. I have a feeling Somewhere Else will be a strong contender standing its ground firmly in the pantheon of many end-of-the-year-best-of lists. And, I'm willing to put good money on it. Somewhere Else is a damn good album showcasing Lydia's more mature writing ("Verlaine Shot…See More

Q&A With Scott H Biram

Grit, dirt, booze, and 18-wheelers are often associated with country-blues-punk rock foot-stomper, Scott H. Biram. Not often do you link him with a baptism, but you'll find Biram emerging from a crimson river in some state of ecstasy, guilt, or deliverance on the cover of his new album, Nothing But Blood. Recorded at his home in Austin, TX, Nothing But Blood is a catalog of hardcore stories of wrongdoings and redemption with a shit-ton of soul and spirit. Although no one knows whose blood is in…See More

Ben Fisher - Charleston (Album Review)

So, this is my first "real" post of 2014 and I can't think of a better album to start with than Ben Fisher's Charleston. Since his first album, Heavy Boots & Underwoods, Ben has been a favorite here at CFM headquarters for his ability to spin stories through song and his strong voice from years of busking in the streets of Seattle. But, since his first album, Ben has grown from great to greatness with Charleston.Charleston is an impressive collection of engaging folk-rock songs like "Mason…See More

"Wow I loved this write-up!! I went to school in Montgomery and much of my heart was left along the Kanawha and Rt 60. This album sounds great from the clips.. this Ohio girl just might make her own trip one day through the valley listening to this…"

Red Tail Ring - The Heart's Swift Foot

The other day while driving deep into the Kanawha River Valley where the ancient Appalachian mountains hug the Kanawha River on my way to Montgomery, West Virginia, I plugged in my iPod and pushed "play" on The Heart's Swift Foot. To my delight it was the perfect album for the trip. It had just finished raining, so the Valley was washed clean of the coal dust and the mist was rising from the mountains like primitive ghosts rising from the ground bringing to the surface the region's past. And,…See More
