"I love Mark Olson and his vision for the band has always been distinctly different. I prefer it immensely to the direction these 3 albums took, but I didn't expect them to keep to his vision either.  I enjoy the albums on their own merits,…"

"I think that many Jayhawks fans will split between 'with vs without' Mark Olson and I respect both viewpoints. What has always surprised me is how when the Jayhawks play, they get big audiences but when Olson or Louris have toured solo (in…"

"Thanks for the review Jela but I must say I tend to agree with LA...I saw the band in Liverpool on Monday(21 July) and they were as good if not better than when I saw them with Mark in 2011. They seemed to be having a good time and the…"

"Good review but don't agree about Olson, his Creekdippers stuff was awful. Louris for me is the main Jayhawk."

The Jayhawks at Shepherd’s Bush Empire (London, U.K. - July 18, 2014)

A hot and steamy London night saw the Jayhawks' 1997 touring band play at this iconic venue in support of the recently released and remastered versions of the Sound of Lies (1997), Smile (2000) and Rainy Day Music (2003). The trilogy includes bonus tracks, alternative versions, demos, live takes, new liner notes and unreleased material from the band’s extensive collection of archives.

"Having been a long time fan of the Jayhawks and seen the band in different incarnations as well as Mark Olson, solo, and as a duo, I can't fathom why fans don't come out in numbers for the solo gigs. The band shows are always so well…"

John Fullbright at Islington Assembly Hall (London, U.K. - June 5, 2014)

“I’m a young man today, that’s got nothing left to say about tomorrow…” sang John Fullbright as he opened with "Daydreamer" at Islington’s Assembly Hall. Well, I for one, beg to differ…this young Oklahoman has plenty to say about tomorrow, given his growing reputation as one of the most talented singer-songwriters to emerge in the past few years. Just in his mid 20s, he’s been gaining much critical praise -- his studio debut From The Ground Up  (2012) received a Grammy nominationHis much…See More

Sam Baker at The All Saints Centre (Lewes, U.K. - June 1, 2014)

Introducing Sam Baker to the Lewes audience, promoter Jamie Freeman from Union Music called him "inimitable", and that word is a perfect description of the Texas-based singer-songwriter. Baker came late to music and live performance. He "picked up a pen" as a way of trying to come to terms with the horrific deaths of fellow passengers and his own life-threatening injuries as a result of a bomb exploding in the overhead luggage rack of the train they were travelling on to Machu…

Emmylou Harris – The Barbican (London – May 26th 2014)

In 1995, Emmylou Harris released Wrecking Ball, a ground-breaking album for her. Daniel Lanois, known for his work with U2, Bob Dylan and Robbie Robertson produced it – a daring choice and not a partnership that would have immediately sprung to mind. The album with its (trademark Lanois) haunting ambient reverb, split her audience. On the one hand you had traditionalists finding it a step too far, U.S. country music radio stations who had regularly featured Harris on their playlists…
