I'm Glad Trouble Don't Last Always CD review - I'm Glad Trouble Don't Last Always
If Ray Lamontagne was a little less pretentious and a lot more hip he'd echo the multi-threat, blues-country-rock stylings of Luke Winslow-King. With a little gravel in his voice, some poison and playfulness in his pen and a mean slide guitar at his fingertips, the Delta blues influence he honed during his time in New Orleans is clearly evident. But a deeper peek is like a trip from the upper Midwest south to the Gulf of Mexico. Winslow-King crafts a tasty blend of his Cadillac, Mich. »»»
Everlasting Arms CD review - Everlasting Arms
Much like the way the Creole people of Southern Louisiana brought together a wide variety of flavors, ingredients and spices to create gumbo, which is now the signature dish of New Orleans cuisine, singer/songwriter Luke Winslow-King has borrowed from many of the Americana music traditions closely associated with The Crescent City to produce an album that immediately transports listeners to the French Quarter.

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: There's a lot to be said about The Felice Brothers – The Felice Brothers have soldiered on, occupying the fringes of the musical world with ups and downs. After not knowing whether the group would even continue following the departure of half of the band a few years ago, The Felice Brothers continued with a new rhythm section and a new album, "Undressed," that is heavily political.... »»»
Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home – Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why. Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
