Bruce Springsteen's Revival Show

The question came crossing the parking lot, barely out of Hampton Coliseum that January night in 1985.

Tedeschi Trucks Band: All in the Family

Susan Tedeschi says when she and Derek Trucks talked about uniting in a band after a decade of marriage they knew there were risks.

Tedeschi was a perennial Grammy nominee, both for rock and blues. Trucks had played with Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, and his uncle's band, The Allman Brothers, starting in his teens earning a reputation as one of the finest slide players on the planet.

They’d played with their own bands for a long time. So it wasn’t an easy choice. But…

My Favorite Music of 2013

There was a time when I spent hours thinking of clever ways to describe the music of the past year. There's not much need now. A brief description and a video and you can make up your mind whether my taste has soured or not.

So here's what I listened to the most this year, a year that I thought was the best for new music in a long, long time.

Jason Isbell - Southeastern.

This is the sound of a life falling apart and nearly ending and then trying to figure a way back from…

Hi Jim

 

      As a featured contributor to No Depression, I’m particularly keen on getting your feedback for the following – Please forgive the intrusion if you don’t have the time or inclination to reply.

 

      I’ve posted the following to the No Depression discussion board – you can either respond there or alternatively drop me a line at shatchsurvey1@yahoo.co.uk

 

Thanks very much for your time

Kind regards,

Steve

 

 

 

My name is Steve Hatch and I’m currently conducting research for my Master’s in Songwriting at Bath Spa University in Bath, England (though I happen to be an ex-pat Georgia boy).  I would be extremely grateful if you could find the time to listen to the track (link below) and answer the 2 accompanying questions.  The more detail, the better of course (more to say in my final analysis) – but all feedback will be useful and very much appreciated.

 

Sadly, as this is an academic pursuit, there is a deadline.  Please reply by May 20th if at all possible so that I can have time to chew over your response and include it in my final write-up.

 

            The track: http://soundcloud.com/stevehatch

 

1)     Which artist/band(s) would you say the track is most similar to and why?

 

2)     Which genre(s) would you say the track belongs to and why?

I don't always agree with you regarding what makes a songwriter exemplary, but your own writing is superb. The Lori McKenna review could be used as an example of concise, clear reporting in masters writing courses. You handled the Warner transition with insight and diplomacy. Your descriptions of her life and her writing are poetically brief.

Just saying.

Hi Jim, thanks for the add. Enjoyed the Caroline Herring review; actually I picked this up at Birdland after I read your rants and raves review a couple of weeks ago. Haven't had the opportunity to sit down and give it a good listen. Hope to do so shortly. Best, Marc
