“Bluebird” – Dawn Landes

“Bluebird” – Dawn Landes

Dawn Landes’ lastest album, Bluebird, is the most gorgeous album I’ve heard in a long time. Every song is a subtle, smart, heartfelt gem. The video for the title song features the dancer Storyboard P and was directed by Christina Ladwig, produced by Ghost Robot. Warning: the minor chord changes at the bridge will tug […]

Daniel Ellsworth and the Great Lakes Bring Joy to Live Music

Sometimes a band comes along that reminds me of the sheer joy live music should bring. That band, most recently, is Daniel Ellsworth and the Great Lakes. I had the great privilege of seeing them last Thursday, November 1, at The Basement’s Communion show. Though they only had time for six amazing songs, the band […]

A Talk with Bobby Long – Part One

A Talk with Bobby Long – Part One

Bobby Long is one of the most dynamic singer-songwriters of the last five years, and as his world gets bigger, so does his music. He puts everything he has into each song, giving very personal experiences in veiled, metaphorical phrases. Hearing his lyrics or reading his poetry is like having a conversation with the man, […]

Justin Townes Earle “Nothing’s Gonna Change the Way You Feel about Me Now” – (Bloodshot)

Justin Townes Earle “Nothing’s Gonna Change the Way You Feel about Me Now” – (Bloodshot)

In the midst of strong reviews of his last album, Harlem River Blues, Justin Townes Earle made the kind of splash he undoubtedly did not want to make.  For various reasons, Earle entered re-hab (again) for drug addiction.  I mention this mainly as a reference point for the songwriting on the album.  While there are […]

Album Review: Cheyenne Marie Mize – “Before Lately” – (sonaBLAST!)

By Melissa Haklitch Cheyenne Marie Mize’s debut solo album is anything but amateur. Channeling vocals similar to that of Cat Power’s Chan Marshall and Julie Sokolow, Mize challenges the best women singer/songwriters of the indie/folk scene. While Mize has performed with numerous known musical artists including Arnett Hollow and the Carter Family, Before Lately is […]

Interview: Stephen Kellogg

Interview: Stephen Kellogg

Intro: Forget G.I. Joe when looking at this summer’s Real American Hero. Look no further than singer-songwriter Stephen Kellogg, who fights villainous poison ivy plants and performs his tunes for soldiers and foreign heads of state alike. Kellogg even takes on bears, at least in metaphorical terms, with his band The Sixers’ new album, The […]
