Wayne Kramer - Lexington (Album Review)

Wayne Kramer is someone who's life story I'd very much like to read. From lead guitar in the Mighty MC5 to prison inmate to social activist (he recently interviewed Pussy Riot, and is constantly active in speaking out against such injustices) to new father, Kramer's life has an interesting story in every chapter. His latest record release (and first jazz album), Lexington, (from Kramer's own label,…See More

Paul Chesne - Downright Up & Left

If you've ever gone out in Los Angeles, chances are you've seen Paul Chesne play. One of the - if not THE - hardest working musicians in L.A., Chesne has been listed in the L.A. Weekly or L.A. Times Calendar section, usually multiple times, every week for the past 15 years. That's playing out an average of three times a week, on top of a full-time (mercifully flexible) day job, handling everything himself. Because he's a musician that simply loves to…See More

"Wonderful story CJ! He's why I wanted to learn how to play guitar and write songs... Aged 9 I heard Suzanne on the radio and I was mesmerized and awestruck. I got to see him live for the first time just a few months ago in London it was a night…"

Mr. Harper's Opus - Ben Harper Plays The Walt Disney Concert Hall

In the final show of Ben Harper's fall solo acoustic tour, he single handedly brought down the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. One guy. A whole bunch of instruments. A completely rapt (and totally diverse, from race to age to gender) audience. You know it's going to be good when there's a standing ovation just because someone walks on stage.That Disney stage creates kind of an in-the-round experience, as they fill the seats behind the stage as well, and all the seats seem to be good.…See More
