Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis - Our Year (Album Review)

Sophomore set by this husband and wife leans heavily on cover songs.

Just over a year after releasing the thirteen-song album Cheater’s Game, this husband and wife duo deliver their sophomore set. The ten-song Our Year possesses numerous similarities to its predecessor. Considering its speedy arrival, the thought occurs that it was recorded in Nashville concurrent with Cheater’s Game.

Helmed, once again, by Brad Jones, Fred…

Hollis Brown and Dennis Ellsworth at Jumping Hot Club, The Cluny 2 (Newcastle, U.K. - June 4, 2014)

This was something of a first for me tonight. I went along solely to see the opening act, Dennis Ellsworth. Work commitments meant I hadn’t been able to research Hollis Brown.

I made my usual "fashionably late" entrance at 8:30. There were only 14 people in Cluny II and one of them was Mel on the door. When another six or seven arrived, Ellsworth made his way to the stage and -- God Bless him -- he performed as if he was at Wembley…

The Willy Collins Band - "Building Bridges" (Album Review)

Willy Collins has a gift for words. They can be subtly sharp, almost lost in the mellow country grooves of his band. There is pain conveyed on his new album Building Bridges, and the sorrow goes down so smoothly that it’s nearly undetected. “You left me shattered/Like a fallen light on the floor,” Collins sings on “Broken Dreams.” The anguished imagery in those lines recall Mark Eitzel of American Music Club at his most pointed and vivid. Nevertheless, the songs themselves…

Q and A with Elana James (Hot Club of Cowtown)

Hot Club of Cowtown is sizzling hot.  All three members of the band (Elana James on fiddle, Whit Smith on guitar, and Jake Ervin on stand-up bass) play their respective instruments impeccably and with a passion that is undeniable.  Their gypsy jazz infused music is infectious.  It’s nearly impossible to sit still in your seat when listening to them.  Their new CD Rendezvous with Rhythm harkens back to their roots and more than exemplifies their dedication to the musical…

Sage Gateshead/Jumping Hot Club Americana SummerTyne Festival 2012

SummerTyne Americana Festival

Sage Gateshead, UK

20-22 July

This was the seventh Annual Sage Americana Festival on the Southern banks of the Tyne and as usual, most of the acts on the Jumping Hot Club stage were virtually unknown to 99% of the audience at the beginning of each day; but judging by the noisy applause each act received at the end of their set everyone went home with at least one brand new favourite band.

    The Jumping Hot Club Hot…

Stackridge, Farncombe Music Club (UK, 5/18/12)

I first started going to live gigs in my early teens. I was underage. I lied about my date of birth so that I could become a member of Friars, a music club based in Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. Life membership was 25p. I still have my member’s card. Wild Turkey in June 1971 was the first live band I saw and some forty one years later I am still occupying live music venues but not pretending to be older than I am!

In my early concert going years one of the bands I saw was…

Lee's Listening Stack: The Best of the Rest for May

Yukon Blonde

Tiger Talk

(Dine Alone Records)

Put aside any notion of fair-haired babes in Eskimo garb… and key in on the idea that despite any frigid environs the name may suggest, Yukon Blonde is one hot combo. One of the real highlights of last year’s Mariposa Fest, this young Canadian outfit displays a seasoned savvy that finds them on quite a roll only two albums on. Tiger Talk is pure pop exuberance, from the one-two-three punch of the album’s first three…

Bruce Robison + Kelly Willis: Together Again, A Year Later - Continental Gallery, Post-SXSW 2012

She was the queen of post-modern cred-country. He was the aw-shucks singer/songwriter with the #1 records on George Strait, the Dixie Chicks, and Tim McGraw with Faith Hill. They were the first couple from Texas’ alt-country scene, and separate but equal propositions with their own careers to tend to.

Last South By Southwest, Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis did the unthinkable: they teamed up for the Americana Music Association’s show at Antone’s. More a merging of solo acts than a…

eMusic November

* Wolf Call! by Various Artists. Another fine Norton collection of greasy, sleazy rock 'n' roll and R&B from the late '50s and early '60s.


This isn't quite as diverse as other Norton compilations like Mad Mike's Monsters or the I Hate CDs series. But he'll, plaster a picture of a stripper on the cover and you probably could…

Lee's Listening Stack - Pajama Club - 'self-titled'

Pajama Club


Independent release


First, a word of warning. Abandon any expectations that might have been heightened by the knowledge that ex-Crowded House helmsman Neil Finn is behind this band. Pajama Club doesn’t resemble any of Finn’s previous projects in the slightest. An album that began on a whim during down time at home with Finn’s wife Sharon, the Pajama Club is strictly intended as a way to left off some steam and simply have fun. It certainly…

TERRELL'S TUNE-UP: Cessna, Morgan & Spaghetti

A version of this was published in The Santa Fe New Mexican

April 22, 2011

Here’s an innovative Denver band that’s been around for years and years. I should have been listening to these musicians for years and years, but somehow they escaped my attention until a couple of months ago.

Slim Cessna’s Auto Club is often billed as a “country gothic” band (whatever that is). Led by Cessna,… Continue

Slim of Slim Cessna's Auto Club talks about new album "Unentitled"

One can insert the band Slim Cessna's Auto Club into a number of different musical categories -- dark roots, rustic blues, apocalyptic gospel, and alt-country, to name a few -- and in doing so be partly correct in each case. But what it comes down to in the end is, they are American music in the truest sense of the term. And their 2011 release on Alternative Tentacles Records, Unentitled, is ongoing proof of that.

Slim Cessna's Auto Club's originated in Denver,… Continue

Big Head Blues Club celebrates 100 Years of Robert Johnson

But…being that May 8th of 2011 marks the 100-year anniversary of Johnson's birth, there are those who would not let it pass unacknowledged. Coming to… Continue

Hot Club of Cowtown 'What makes Bob Holler'

Hot Club of Cowtown

What Makes Bob Holler

Proper Records PRPCD071


Flawless Western Swing and Jazz fusion as the Hot Club return to their roots.


A new Hot Club of Cowtown release is a pretty big deal in these circles and as my detractors probably believe  I don’t know enough about Country music to do such a record justice (as if!) I invited two friends who are HCCT fans around for a listen on Sunday morning.


In fairness I learnt… Continue
