"Thank you, denton fabrics. I was able to see Leyla perform recently in New Haven, and she was wonderful. Despite the recent album release, she has already added new original work to her set. Very talented!"

Amy Black Soars with "This Is Home" (Album Review)

Amy Black opened for Rodney Crowell at several of his northeast tour dates last fall, then joined the Grammy winner on stage.  There she charmed the audience by performing one of his original songs, backed by Crowell on harmony vocals.  The two kept in touch after the run of shows ended, and Amy gratefully accepted Rodney’s input and advice on some of her own new music.  He was among those to receive an early listen to the freshly recorded tracks and had a reaction that did not strictly follow…See More

Blue Sky Riders: Rockin’ the Stage and the Social Network

The discussion didn’t last long.  I insisted earnestly that permission had been given; the usher ultimately relented.  Photography was allowed for the band’s first few songs, then the cap covered the lens.  It was only after Kenny Loggins addressed the crowd that the camera came out to stay. “I don’t know what they told you here,” said Kenny to the audience, “but we want you to take pictures.” “Take lots of pictures,” he encouraged.   “Do you tweet?  Tweet one now!”  Hundreds of us did; held…See More

CD Review - Ellis Paul "City of Silver Dreams"

It seems fitting that the first and title track on Ellis Paul’s new holiday album celebrates the spirit of New York, a city that survives and thrives, transformed each year by the sights and sounds of the season.  The “City of Silver Dreams” (2012 Black Wolf Records) peers through the ribbon draped windows, rejoices…See More
