CD reviews for Jakob Dylan

Women and Country CD review - Women and Country
charging out of the gate sporting the charisma and sound of a budding young rock star, which distinctly contrasted with his famous father's folk music genesis.

First and foremost, Underwood remains one tremendous... »»»

Sunshine is Free CD review - Sunshine is Free
Monica Rizzio's second album, "Sunshine Is Free," emblematic of its title, ushers in bright country music, with roots touches but generally gliding in melodic, uplifting country territory. Put this in your player when you need a smile or two. »»»
