"I've been a Richard Thompson fan since the early '80s. I lived in England for a couple of years, heard his music and was amazed. I've been following him since. I even got a chance to see him live in my native Seattle about 20 years…"

Nick Lowe ~ "Cracking Up" & "Raging Eyes"

"I'm fascinated by the guitars in "Raging Eyes." I see a Danelectro bass and a National Newport for the lead guitar. Since this is 1983, they clearly aren't reissues but the real things. But what is Nick playing? It has a…"

Kent Kangley commented on Easy Ed's blog post 'Seattle gets Holly Pulliam. California gets expensive coffee.'
"I live south of Seattle. If I trust my 300k+ mile, 30 year old Subaru to make the 20 mile trip to town, I'll make sure to see her sing and buy a CD."

Kent Kangley replied to T Hanssen's discussion 'What is your favorite album this week?'
"This has happened to me more times than I care to mention. I'd buy an album, discover there are only a couple songs I liked (or even discover I hated the entire album), but on subsequent relistens ("Was it really that bad?") I'd…"

Kent Kangley replied to T Hanssen's discussion 'What is your favorite album this week?'
"I've been listening to Danny O'Keefe's "O'Keefe" for a few days now. "Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues" is such an amazing song, but there are plenty of other great gems in here, too. Well worth it if…"

Kent Kangley commented on Erwin Bosman's blog post '“Ragtime Texas”: a hobo songster goin’ up the country… A tribute to Henry Thomas'
"What a great article. I've been fascinated with early blues for a long time now, but I had never heard of Henry Thomas until now. He's immediately moving to the top of my "to buy" list. Thanks."

Kent Kangley replied to Randy Brown's discussion 'You Are Given Your Own Radio Show; What Are The First Ten Songs You Would Play?'

Kent Kangley replied to Randy Brown's discussion 'Your Own Personal MOUNT RUSHMORE Of Singer-Songwriters!'
"I especially like your choice of Bruce Cockburn for the Canadians. I've been listening to him for over 30 years now. His songwriting, like his guitar playing, has extraordinary depth and he's always ready to surprise you with his…"

Kent Kangley replied to Diana Price's discussion '10 Essential Albums for Your Americana Collection'
"I know exactly what you mean about singing along to his songs. They're surprisingly catchy and hook-laden, but still with plenty of depth and substance. It's a wonder he's not more successful. As for my singing voice, well, if you…"

"What's embarrassing is that I looked it up on my iPod and noticed it was "Gram" but still wrote "Graham" out of habit."

Kent Kangley commented on Mando Lines's blog post 'Cayamo Conversations: Glen Phillips'
"I was aware of Toad back in the day. I owned a few of their albums and even saw them live in a small club in Portland around 1994 or so. "Walk On The Water" is still a gorgeous song, a rare waltz from a rock band. I haven't kept up…"

Kent Kangley replied to T Hanssen's discussion 'What is your favorite album this week?'
"It's not Americana, but I've been listening to Gypsy Jazz all this week, a 4-CD set from Proper Records. It's mostly French jazz artists from the 1920s to 1940s, and it's fantastic. If you love Django Reinhardt, you'll love…"
