Here’s something refreshing: Ellis Delaney is a folk singer like no other, a woman with a mission to communicate love, joy, respect and trust to a world that is ever in need of healing. If that sounds a little sappy, then think again and give the woman a listen, because Ellis sings with a rare degree of open, unaffected honesty that you’d need a heart of stone to resist. This triple cd set offers one disc of new songs and two discs of the two halves of a set recorded at the White…Continue

Australian country man Lachlan Bryan has a day job as front man for the Wildes, but his debut solo effort sees him with a set of carefully crafted songs that have a strong feel for the mellow craft of classic country music.

Gram Parsons’ old road manager calls them The Neverly Brothers, a name which fits with their own self-deprecating humour whilst paying respect to the quite wonderful harmonies they produce when they sing together.
The Comeback Album is a title that typifies this wry humour – it’s not like they were…Continue

Most of the music I listen to is by independent artists, people working on a small budget and, almost without exception, with little hope of achieving mass market approval (though, of course, the dream always flickers on). Even within this world I marvel more and more at the skill of producers who work such magic with songs that probably arrive in the studio with little more than the melody and the guitar part. Lisa Richards’ new album is one of the…Continue
