Patrick Sweany Wears the Colors Traveling the World

Born in Massillon, Ohio where every newborn boy has a football with the high school colors placed in their bassinet, Patrick Sweany was instead drawn to an electric guitar and rock and roll. He went to Kent State University and played clubs; continuing to live in the area until leaving for Nashville in 2009. Like many others, there was only so much you could do singing the Rust Belt blues around Cleveland, Akron, Canton, and Youngstown.  Nashville was calling and folks like…

"Jackson" from Wyoming Territory by Kristina Stykos

Some musicians are searchers but many give up after awhile. Some morph into other avenues of their art: writing, teaching, recording or producing. Others simply find other careers. Still, there are those who acknowledge it as their true calling and let the flow from the Source guide them on.…

New Releases Pay Tribute to Bob Dylan and Jackson Browne

Rarely do I go in depth on a record release that is a reissue, live, or tribute album.  But two such albums featuring Bob Dylan and Jackson Browne are getting special treatment this week.

Originally aired as a live pay-per-view event on October 16, 1992, Columbia Records threw Bob Dylan a 30th anniversary bash at Madison Square Garden with one of the most impressive lineups in the history of rock and roll.  My VHS tape has long worn out and trying to locate a copy…

David Serby - David Serby and the Latest Scam (Album Review)

L.A. honky-tonker goes power-pop

David Serby's Honkytonk and Vine revisited 1980s Los Angeles' honky-tonk with its cowboy-booted country twang. Serby's follow-up, Poor Man's Poem, turned from honky-tonk to folk-flavors, but still kept its roots in…

Riding That Train - The Awesome Array of Artists That Made the Sail Across the Sun Cruise an Awesome Adventure

I’m a big fan of music cruises. For me they are ideal entertainment. You get a bunch of great bands onboard, all the food you care to gorge yourself on, nice accommodations, a friendly service staff and a party atmosphere like no other. Suffice it to say, these excursions are like traveling seaworthy festivals, except at the end of the day when you’ve burnt yourself to a crisp you don’t have to go back to a tent and flounder in the mud. Instead, you can beat a retreat to your…

Paul Simon - Over the Bridge of Time (Album Review)

A too-small helping of singer-songwriter brilliance

Given the wealth of Paul Simon's catalog, both in concert with Art Garfunkel and solo, and given the many reconfigurations and reiterations of this material issued on vinyl, 8-track, cassette, CD and digital download, it's difficult to place the specific utility of this new 20-track collection. Six essential tracks from Simon & Garfunkel and fourteen stretching across Simon's solo…

The Band of Heathens - Sunday Morning Record (Album Review)

Band of Heathens refine and expand their sound

The Band of Heathens continues to surprise. While their new album offers up the Americana and Little Feat-styled funk fans have come to expect, there's a thread of late 1960s production pop that's a welcome addition. This opening track, "Shotgun," tips the album's surprise with its nod to "Everybody's…
