Let me do it twice -- The second time for me - from Shadows On A DimeA song lasts as long as it takes to sing, it hovers in the air for a second and then it’s gone.  That’s the physical reduction - a dance and interchange of air, breath and heat, the transference of auditory information by vibration.…See More

"This is awesome, thanks Doug! One of the best shows I've seen these last few years was Ferron with Bitch at the Triple Door in Seattle. An engaging and surprising pair. So, I'm glad to learn that their collaboration continues.…"

Time Passes Quickly: Bob Dylan - The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration (CD/DVD Review)

By Douglas HeselgraveWhen the 30th anniversary concert was announced and advertised as a pay per view television special, the event seemed curious and as if it came out of nowhere. To be sure, the 30th anniversary of Bob Dylan’s arrival in New York and everything that grew out of the cultural conflagration that erupted in Greenwich Village was worthy of commemoration, but cultural values themselves have never usually been enough to inspire an event of this size.  It’s important to remember that…See More

"  This is the sort of review that makes you want to hear the music.  Bravo!  Many reviews are more about the critic and his/her tastes and history.  Thank you."

Kevin Finseth with Peggy Lee – The Wounded Quartet (Album Review)

by Douglas HeselgraveSometimes, it’s difficult to figure out why a particular piece of music affects us in the way it does.  On the surface there may be nothing especially remarkable about it, nothing to distinguish it from so many other recordings, but for some reason it catches us and won’t let go.  For the last four months, there haven’t been many days I haven’t listened to Kevin Finseth’s ‘The Wounded Quartet’ EP at least once, and on more occasions than I can recall, whole afternoons have…See More

Jordi Savall and Hesperion XXI – Orient-Occident II: Hommage a la Syrie (Album Review)

By Douglas HeselgraveIn purely visual terms, there has never been a better argument put forward for the continued existence of the physical CD format than ‘Orient-Occident II: Hommage a la Syrie’ provides. The idea that the packaging, artwork and accompanying materials that accompany the music are essential to the overall experience the artists create is a concept that other musicians and their labels should pay attention to. The aesthetics are so strikingly beautiful and lovingly produced that…See More

Glad Tidings and Great Joy – Reid Jamieson’s Christmas Miracle

Holiday music reviews by Douglas Heselgrave

Songs For A Winter’s Night – Reid Jamieson

I don’t know how I missed it, but somewhere between the release of his debut CD, ‘Staring Contest’ and what could be mistaken for a simple holiday album ‘Songs For A Winter’s Night,’ Reid Jamieson has become the greatest Canadian pop singer ever.  Forget about Celine Dion and Michael Buble or Paul Anka and Anne Murray in their primes.  When it comes to bring you down…

Hi Doug

 

      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?

Hey Doug thanks for being a friend. I'm a Touring Independent Austin Texas Outlaw Honkytonker that needs your support! I'm always looking for new places to play so please let me know if you know of any. I have a Critically Acclaimed CD "The Leaving Side Of Gone" available at www.cdbaby.com/cd/peeweemoore and my next tour kicks off February 2nd and hits locations in TX, NM, AZ, CA, NV. Be sure to spread the word if you know anybody in those states. My official website is www.peeweemoore.com I hope to see you around!

"If I were to trace the genealogy of the country music Outlaw, it would start with Bobby Bare, roll through Willie & Waylon and that whole gang, follow Cash through the late 90′s, and end up in the country music underground with people like Peewee Moore as possibly the perfect example of the Outlaw lineage in the present day"

Hi Doug!!!It's moi. I think of you sometimes and then there you are on this seemingly obscure website I don't even know how I got to it. Maybe it's not obscure...maybe just I am. I'm living in Maine teaching college, kayaking the rivers, living in damn paradise.
Studying Chinese sumi-e, still looking to the east for inspiration. My kids all grown up, an opera singer. Lives not too far away down in Boston. I'm a grateful soul. Glad to know you're still kickin'
