CD reviews for Ruston Kelly

Dying Star CD review - Dying Star
There is a certain joy that comes from listening to a debut album and discovering, track by track, the arrival of a bright new talent. It's not a wet-behind-the-ears singer with a batch of anonymous songs, hoping to get radio airplay. Rather, it's someone with an already-established vision and a clear voice. Ruston Kelly's "Dying Star" may have a few too many cuss words to get the airplay it deserves, but it should be considered as one of the best debuts of the year. »»»

Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time. That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
