Her Name Is Earl: Shelby Earl & the Desert Church of Doo-Wop

Shelby Earl insists she's not a country singer. Good luck with that. When you're name's Shelby Earl, you could perform nothing but Pointer Sisters covers and likely still get branded with a banjo; such a moniker earmarks you for a career spent evoking hay bales and wide-open spaces, whether you like it or not.

But, in truth, Shelby Earl is not a country artist, even if her rich, assertive voice is often--and accurately--compared to that of Neko Case. Yet Earl's…

Quick Q and A with Sharon Goldman

Sharon Goldman is one of the musicians who make up Chicks with Dip---a talented bunch of women who have been touring with their tribute to Joni Mitchell’s Blue album.  Sharon’s songs are honest and direct, guided by an impeccable voice that draws you in at the first note.

When did you first realize you had the singer-songwriter bug?  And how did you act upon that dream?

I realized I had the singer-songwriter bug -- or at least the dream of it -- in the…

Since Neko Case it’s been hard to find a woman on the country scene with such honesty and passion, that is until Lydia Loveless surfaced. Loveless was raised in a small Ohio…

How to Break Neko Case's Heart: Sing "Star Witness" Like Angels

Let's agree that most YouTube videos of cover songs by high-school students are meant to entertain a small circle of friends and earn derisive snorts much beyond the school grounds. Few are so pure in intention and strikingly beautiful in execution that they break the heart of the original artist.

Canadian students Kate Macdonald and Janelle Blanchard recorded a version of Neko Case's brooding "Star Witness" on a school…

Friend of Mine - The Bill Morrissey Tribute Concert - review

Friend of Mine  - The Bill Morrissey Tribute Concert

Somerville Theatre, Somerville, MA        November 17, 2011


The show was set to start at 7:00 pm , but at 6:45 the on stage video screen lit up with Bill’s infectious grin. The footage was of a performance at a small arts festival in Massachusetts from 1991 and included an interview with Acoustic Café host, Brad Paul. Bill was his usual witty self, joking that his then upcoming “new” album (“Inside” released in Jan.…

Lost Record of the Week: Neko Case, Furnace Room Lullaby

I think maybe I have an unfair advantage with this week’s album, and next week’s choice too (Corb Lund’s Horse Soldier Horse Soldier): I already know and love these artists.  But somehow, there are albums that I never got around to listening to, and I keep the rotation of the few that I know and love going without giving the other albums a chance.  I suppose my ultimate goal with this project is exactly that: listen to the records that are getting dusty on my shelf.  And knowing the…

Peter Case Still Out There

A few months back I interviewed Peter Case and was honored to be able to be in the audience at Claremont Folk Music Center and McCabe's in Claremont, Calf. as he kicked off his new tour following a year of recovery from heart surgery. Looking like an updated version of Dave Van Ronk, he's been steady on the road since June and the Americana tour circuit has been all the better for it. This YouTube is especially well-produced. I love this song....a great haunt of urban… Continue

What was Good this Year and Some Great Things to Look Forward to Next Year

In my opinion, 2009 was a great year for music. Not the mainstream stuff, mind you, or even much of the indie/underground stuff, but if you really knew what you were looking for, you could stumble onto a classic.

This is my first post here and in order for you to get better acquainted with my musical taste (which I describe as eclectic), here are my top 10 albums of this year:

1. Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers- The Live Anthology

2. Deer Tick-… Continue

Jay Sweet of Folk Festival 50 in Newport, RI: The Well-Rounded Radio Interview

As a series about music from every genre, Well-Rounded Radio is partly about music I like and love and want to share with others and partly about interviewing music industry "thought… Continue

Jenny Lewis Has Opened My Eyes

Oh Jenny Lewis, how do I love thee, let me count the ways? Your formative years as a child star, whose face has flickered across my television screen against the backdrop of so many of my favorite movies growing up. The brutally honest lyricism and vibrant poetic imagery your sweet voice brought toRilo Kiley during your days as an indie darling? The magnetic storytelling of Rabbit Fur Coat, your breakout as a (semi) solo artist that brought you back… Continue
