After a successful solo outing, Aussie country singer Lachlan Bryan got his old band back into the studio and came up with this cracker of an album. It was released in the autumn of last year in Australia and subsequently picked up a major award as “Alternative Country” album of the year. Such acclaim means any belated praise from me is superfluous, but I’m keen to point out to Flyin’Shoes readers just how good this is.

Robby Hecht is as gentle a singer-songwriter as I can think of on the Americana scene.

Fleetwood Mac produced the first high-profile rock album about mid-life break-ups and it has proved a rich vein of inspiration ever…Continue

Just coming to the end of their latest British tour (Colston Hall, Hammersmith Apollo – the venues are getting bigger) The O’s are back with their third album, recorded at the Sonic Ranch Studio in Texas. It’s more of the same, really, from lovable scamps John Pedigo and Taylor Young as they wreak their own particular brand of roots music mayhem across twelve new songs. Both these boys take a turn at singing and, between them, they play most instruments. Can’t say I noticed any…Continue
