Tom Freund - Two Moons (Album Review)

Former Silos bassist extends his catalog as a singer-songwriter

Tom Freund is a songwriter who's something of a musical chameleon. His latest release opens with "Angel Eyes," a tune whose sharp edged lyric, "funny how when you leave L.A. you gotta drive into the desert / out of the frying pan and into the fire," is worthy of Randy Newman. Freund's lap steel further echoes Los Angeles with its David-Lindley-esque tone, and his guitar…

A terrific Dave Edmunds-helmed soundtrack to a forgettable film

Americana Rock Mix: Episode 231 – 6 Years And Running

Wow! Wow wow wow. Honestly, I never thought I’d be doing this for 6 years. And up until a few days ago, this was going to be another typical episode. But then my buddy Matt Burke decided that it’s the perfect opportunity to stop by, play some songs, listen to some music, and just shoot the breeze. Enjoy!

Old 97’s Celebrate 20 Years with New Record Release and Tour

Twenty years is quite the accomplishment for a rock and roll band.  Think about it. There aren't that many that have continued to make relevant music for two decades, let alone stayed together. With the release of their tenth studio album, Most Messed Up, the Old 97’s have crafted another alt-country, twangy pop rock record that should satisfy the taste buds of long-time admirers as well as garner new fans not familiar with the quartet.

Originating out of Dallas,…

The Everly Brothers - Songs Our Daddy Taught Us (Album Review)

2014 expanded reissue of the Everlys' deepest roots

The Everly Brothers second full-length album is extraordinary in many different ways. In addition to its basic triumph as roots music, its exposition of traditional folk and country songs was a nervy artistic statement by a duo that was helping build the foundations of rock 'n' roll. A string…

Moot Davis - Goin' in Hot (Album Review)

Fine Nashville twang born of a broken heart

Davis' fourth album, his second in partnership with producer Kenny Vaughan, expands upon the Nashville twang of 2012's Man About Town. The influences are similar - Dwight Yoakam, Big Sandy and Raul Malo - but there's also a helping of…

Striking collaboration between Irish and Canadian singer-songwriters

Singer-songwriters Stephen Fearing and Andy White have released numerous albums under their own names and in groups (notably Blackie and the Rodeo, and ALT), but this turns out to be only their second as a pair. Now living on opposite sides of the globe (Fearing in Halifax, White…

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…
