CD reviews for Scott H. Biram

The Bad Testament CD review - The Bad Testament
Country is a relative term to Scott H. Biram. Over his 20-plus year career, the famously self-proclaimed Dirty Old One Man Band has opened for a dizzying array of artists across the musical spectrum - Willie Nelson, G. Love and Special Sauce, Pinetop Perkins, Social Distortion, The Dwarves and Clutch, among others - and been an appropriate fit for every one of the them. Biram doesn't acknowledge genre; he just goes where the next song takes him and inhabits it instinctively, like water taking »»»
Nothin' But Blood CD review - Nothin' But Blood
Scott Biram has been described as raucous, a bit psychotic and earned the title "The Dirty Old One Man Band." One thing missing from all these descriptions is talented. All these are on full display on Biram's new release. As the title suggests, Biram leaves no stone unturned, his music and style is unrelenting and dripping with emotion. Be warned, however, Biram is not for the timid. He cuts loose openly and freely. Case in point is his own version of Mance Lipscomb's "Alcohol Blues. »»»
Graveyard Shift CD review - Graveyard Shift
Shortly into this CD, Scott H. Biram confesses, "I gotta keep singin' these Goddamn songs." While others laugh to keep from crying, Biram sings non-stop, presumably, to prevent a nervous breakdown. He's also a control freak about making his music and is credited with singing all lead and harmony vocals, playing various keyboards and guitars, as well as incorporating CB radio, Bible thump, and breathing - whatever all these listings mean. Yep, this is all Biram, all the time, »»»
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: Lambert refuses to rest on laurels – Watching this stop on Miranda Lambert's "Livin' Like Hippies Tour," one is struck by just how many great songs the country singer/songwriter already has in her repertoire. With most artists, it's relatively easy to guess which song a performer will choose to close a show. But Lambert has so many winners to pick from, many... »»»
Concert Review: DBT rocks on – Drive-By Truckers still sometimes get miscategorized as alt.-country, but who's kidding whom? With three electric guitarists upfront exchanging hard rock licks all night, this is a blistering Southern rock band. Hitting the stage just before 10, the band played a satisfying 2-hour-plus set. At 11:40, Patterson Hood announced the band would be... »»»

Tyminski goes dark Dan Tyminski (known simply as "Tyminski" on his 2017 release "Southern Gothic") has traditional music roots and unassailable bluegrass street cred especially given his membership in Alison Krauss' Union Station.

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno. Their new release, "Echoes In The Valley" features mostly songs written by Fleck and Washburn, banjos, Washburn's strong vocals and very little else.... »»»

Staggered CD review - Staggered
East Nashville may be known as "the" Americana hotbed these days, but some of the talent there is very much verging on rock 'n roll. This is the case with Lynn Taylor & the BarFlies on their third release, a collection of personal tunes by the front man. »»»

The soundtrack for the independent film, "American Folk," stars two real-life singer-songwriters played by Joe Purdy and Amber Rubarth, who also contribute the bulk of the material on the soundtrack.
