The Avett Brothers ~ "Clay Pigeons"

"Every once in a while the camera's rolling at the right time. Extraordinary cover of Mr. Foley's song. Good on 'em for spreading the word on a number of oft overlooked/forgotten songwriters."

"Welcome to the other side Mr. Ellis  :)  I've been a big fan of Bill since his early VOL days and I have no idea why he's so far below the radar. I thought "Amber Waves" , 2012, was one of the best that year. With his…"

Daniel T replied to T Hanssen's discussion 'The No Depression Confession Booth'
"Karen Carpenter had the best voice ever recorded. Seriously, I'll debate the point till dawn. Pure gold, spun like silk, woven into a honey covered security blanket. Karen Carpenter had the best voice EVER recorded."

"I can understand Frampton. "Live" was THE LP of that year. But I don't understand how you can go with Peter AND Donna and KC!?!?   Polar opposites."

Daniel T replied to T Hanssen's discussion 'The No Depression Confession Booth'
"Don't see why you would consider any of these "guilty" pleasures. They're all great bands, from the era of my misspent youth. "Dark Side of the Moon" was the 1st LP I bought with my own money."

Stevie Tombstone with guest Loren Barrigar at Creekside Books and Coffee, Skaneateles, NY (1/5/2013)

Central New York is  in the middle of a cold snap. Mother Nature has also blessed/cursed us with 2 feet of snow. A night housebound, curled up with a good book, was an attractive option. Add the temptation of the Packers-Vikings rematch and venturing out 40 miles from home was less likely as the time to leave approached. I am very glad I braved the cold, dark drive through back country roads to catch Mr. Tombstone "Live".

His latest release "Greenwood" is an excellent…

Just a Funny Conversation

Merelfest's newsletter came in the e-mail today, with a story from long time volunteer Amos Perrine about a conversation he overheard at the Austin Stage one day, during a break in the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest. It involves a fifty-something male FSM, a twenty-something male TSM and a twenty-something woman TSW.

TSM:(Looking at the No Depression sponsor's banner over the stage) What's that?

FSM: It's a banner for the magazine No Depression that co-sponsors this…

CD Review - Bill Mallonee "Amber Waves"

"Amber Waves" is Bill Mallonee's 50th Album. Surprised me, and I've been a fan since the 1992 Vigilante's of Love release "Killing Floor". Prolific could have been coined specifically for Bill. I've been told he writes more than a hundred songs a year.

His WPA series, (11 EP's in 4 years) were satisfying for his fans but seemed not quite fully realized. Rough around the edges, workmanlike, raw.

"Amber Waves" comes to us…

Larkin Poe, "Summer" an EP

This second installment in the ambitious "seasonal" series is another remarkable effort. Shorter than "Spring", but I'm not surprised, or disappointed in any way. 9 songs and 30 minutes of music is some bands annual output. And rarely as high quality. "Summer" clocks in at 6 songs and 19 minutes, each moment a pleasure. These young ladies do need to pace themselves after all. It is an EP, and there are 2 more to go.

"Praying For The… Continue

Nice to meet you.  Ain't this a great neighborhood? I've been playing music onstage since 1964 and every time I come on here I'm blown away by the new stuff coming along. See you here and there...

Thanks so much. We're gald you like our songs, and we appreciate your input. We've been writing for many years, and this is our first attempt to write for a specific group of people. So far, it's working better than we anticipated. The album should be finished by the end of June, and will be for sale on iTunes, as well as other online sites and available on CD. Again, thanks. Please feel free to post your thoughts anytime, and help us spread the word. We can use all the fans we can get.
