Josh Nolan - Fair City Lights (Album Review)

It may appear I’ve been a little fixated on Kentucky’s music scene as of late but, as the hotbed of brimming talent keeps on pooling, I am more than delighted to introduce another one.  Lexington-based singer-songwriter Josh Nolan recently released an impressive debut record, Fair City Lights, a few months back. It's an effort put out independently by Nolan himself that originally began as a fan-funded project. His confidence in his material provoked him to follow through…

Josh Farrow's Dreams Come True at Hangout Music Festival

The Hangout Music Festival is more than a weekend of music at the beach for Nashville singer-songwriter Josh Farrow. He has been to every Hangout festival, most of them as a fan, and calls it the best music festival in the country. Last year his band played on the shuttle bus in one of the best sets that most of the crowd never saw, and he proposed to his girlfriend at the festival. This year he was picked by MTV to play on…

Mick's Birthday Bash - June 21, 2013 - Ground Zero with Jesco White, Roger Alan Wade, Dan Deel and more

June 21, 2013 is a perfect example of folks working together to make something very special.  The venue was Groundzero in Spartanburg SC which is a place where I have seen many diverse acts from Man or Astroman?! to Ted Nugent to Wesley Willis to Misfits to Vanilla Ice  to Doug Stanhope. It's been called the CBJB's of the south and thru the years have survived a few decades where many have came and gone the mighty Groundzero is still providing a haven for many. I am not sure where…

Can musicians get fans to put down their cameras?

“At the request of Matt and Zooey, we ask that people not use their cell phones to take pictures and video, but instead enjoy the show they have put together in 3D.”

This is a sign posted at recent concerts of She & Him – the duo of M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel. The pair is among a recent group of musicians attempting to gently tell fans to put down…

Rising Group PC & The Angels Of Death Getting Noticed

PC & The Angels of Death are an alt. country rock group from California headed by singer/songwriter Patrick Coleman.

Prescription Bluegrass Reviews Josh Graves Book!

JOSH GRAVES - “Bluegrass Bluesman, Josh Graves, A Memoir,”

In my humble opinion, the 1960’s was the most pivotal decade in the post WWII era. Yes, that was fifty plus years ago, but, those times had a profound affect on the United States, on me and the way I’ve lived my life since. The ‘60’s still bring…

Review: Punching Bag, by Josh Turner. (MCA Nashville)

Long removed from the promise of the truly stirring Long Black Train, Josh Turner's new album, Punching Bag, proves that Music Row, Nashville has elevated cliche to art.

This album is about as involving as a slice of store brand cheese product.But you know, there's always some sort of low reached every time a slice of product is presented from God's point of view, such as this album's I Was There.…

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

Ryan Adams

iTunes Session


 He may not be releasing new albums at the fast and furious pace he did just a few years ago, but that doesn’t allay the suspicion that Ryan Adams may be the most prolific artist of this generation bar none. So instead of getting a new LP every six months, our man Adams has resorted to other mediums to get his music out, among them iTunes, which released this gem of a collection as an exclusive offering a short time back. Those that…

Josh Harty Nowhere


I reckon this'll be the third album for Wisconsin native Josh Harty. Coming from an intensely musical background, he seems to have been playing and performing most of his 30-odd years and his fluency on the acoustic guitar is testament to all those years of playing. As a songwriter, I would say he's striving to be as honest, as true to an emotion, as he can possibly get, and I guess he has a perfectionist streak that prevents him being more…

"That Just Happened" - Mountain Heart - A Review

Mountain Heart has created a very creative acoustic rock recording with lots of influences. Josh's vocals are very rich, and can be easily mistaken for Vince Gill on a slow ballad. This recording sounds a lot like a live album, though I know there are several overdubs.

The cookin' "That Just Happened" starts the disc out , with several people helping out, especially on vocals. sounds a bit like Seatrain on Steroids, like it rocks, in it's… Continue

Mountain Heart has finished it's new EP- "That Just Happened"

This latest EP by the group shows their passion for music, both their own and the music of others , There are 4 original songs and 3 cover tunes like "Whipping Post" and "The Ride." Jim Van Cleve spent lots of time with it, so it is quite a quality recording, with Eddie Bayers on drums and additional guitarist Bryan Sutton(always, one of my faves) Here is where you can preorder
