Love. Ain't Love CD review - Love. Ain't Love
Yonder Mountain String Band has a preternatural fan following, courtesy of its live touring over two decades. Generally known as a jam-grass band, their record releases have been a mix of original recordings and live event presentations. Following the inevitable arc of a long-running band's narrative, Yonder's lineup has changed in the last couple of years.

Black Sheep CD review - Black Sheep
Anyone wondering if the 2014 departure of founding member and mandolinist Jeff Austin would alter the successful formula that Yonder Mountain String Band has used since their first album back in 1999 can rest easy after hearing what the new lineup has done with this new studio effort.

Concert Review: The Head and the Heart go beyond the nah nahs – "Nah nah," "la la" and "Wee oh" populated a number of songs from The Head and the Heart. Yes, the Seattle-based band does pen a good amount of sing-along songs that were clearly designed that way. And while that style can certainly engage and energize a crowd, there was more to that from the sextet.... »»»
Concert Review: Underwood leads a night of women in country – Carrie Underwood may have been off the road for three years, during which time she had two boys and did not release an album until "Cry Pretty" 13 months ago, but the most successful American Idol contestant has lost none of her vocal luster to say the least in her Cry Pretty 360 Tour. First and foremost, Underwood remains one tremendous... »»»
