Live at the Down Home CD review - Live at the Down  Home
Live CDs can sometimes suffer from quality control issues. Not so here with the NewFound Road CD recorded in Johnson City, Tenn. on Dec. 4, 2010. The recording feels like the listener has a seat at the Down Home and yet the tracks have studio sonic quality. The crowd injects energy, but does not distract. The band has its roots in gospel music, but stretches out into other genres. There's a Jackson Browne number, These Days, bluegrass, (a high energy rendition of Reuben) and some smooth country, (Tom T. »»»
Same Old Place
The new album by Newfound Road might be called "Same Old Place," but the music doesn't find the band stalled out in the same old place. Their sophomore release for Rounder (and fifth overall) finds the band teaming with producer Jim VanCleve, of the award winning group Mountain Heart, to polish their sound and song selection. While the sound may be a little too polished for some bluegrass purists, the crisp, clean production brings out the sound of each instrument and harmony part. »»»
Life in a Song CD review - Life in a Song
Seldom does a bluegrass band of unknowns make an immediate impression. With most bands, the members have spent several years paying their dues as understudies in established bands or they've made a name for themselves as solo artists and joined together as some kind of supergroup. Not New Found Road. Relative unknowns from Ohio, Tim Shelton, Rob Baker, Jr. Williams and Randy Barnes ably share the vocal duties while weaving some fine harmonies. They write solid bluegrass tunes while selecting tasty covers. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»

Hillman bides his time Legends don't come any more legendary than Chris Hillman.

With Stanley and Watson, sound isn't elementary Those aware of the late Owsley "Bear" Stanley likely know him for one of two reasons - his pioneering work manufacturing lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) in San Francisco during the mid-to-late 1960s and his role as an innovative sound engineer. Most notably, Bear worked...... »»»
First Cigarette CD review - First Cigarette
The stunning vocal of Travis Meadows on the opening track, "Sideways," brims with honesty, pain and hard-earned wisdom as he offers a blend of confession and advice, stimulated by an experience at an adolescent addiction treatment center. Meadows, like many, is one of those Nashville songwriters ("Riser" for Dierks Bentley and "What We Ain't Got" for Jake Owen), but is finding his own voice relatively late in life. »»»
The Long Awaited Album CD review - The Long Awaited Album
When last we visited a new album from Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, 2011's "Rare Bird Alert," we found a cohesive, focused collection of bluegrass; it was an expansive, artistic creation that only benefited the bluegrass community. A subsequent live album (strikingly entitled "Live") presented a continued refinement of this pairing's chemistry.  »»»

Billy Strings. It takes a lot of nerve to adopt such a nom de plume (in this case nom de guerre might be more appropriate) in the bluegrass world, but Billy Strings is up to the challenge, and more. Strings (real name William Apostol) grew up in Michigan, surrounded by musicians. »»»
