Shelby Lynne: A True Revelation

Shelby Lynne has been making music since 1988 and she has seen the way the industry has changed, how making records has changed and how much she as a person and an artist has changed. One thing for certain is the same, her drive, honesty and voice.

“Many many things have changed, my hair for instance, you’ve seen all the facets of what I’ve done musically and otherwise. I was just telling a friend that what Taylor Swift has done, the way she’s handled herself and her…

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…

The Please Please Me Shake A Little Harder in 2013

By Tom Semioli

Stop, look and listen to Jessie Torrisi, the sultry, sexy, super-charged  singer / songwriter / guitarist / band leader of Austin trio Please Please Me and you’d think she was born and raised to be a roots rocker ala Shelby Lynne, Lucinda Williams, or Ryan Adams.   Now for the truth – she’s from Philadelphia, and made her bones playing drums in one of New York City’s most notorious glam / punk / shock-rock outfits in the 00’s– Unisex Salon.  “I woke up one day…

Shelby Lynne, Allison Moorer: Side by Side on the Road, Starting at Hardly Strictly Oct 3

Gay Does Not Ruin a Career

So Chely Wright is gay. Hmm, that’s not the one I thought it would be, I always figured it would turn out to be Terri Clark or Wynonna Judd. In any event, who cares? Do you like her music or not? If you do, fine, buy it, if not, then don’t. I’m not a fan of her music, though I do own one of her older CD’s.
