CD reviews for Nikki Lane

Highway Queen CD review - Highway Queen
It's lonely out there for listeners these days - a lot of country music wants to be pop, while Americana's gone alternative. Is there anybody out there who still wants to write accessible songs with real instruments, ideally without boring or depressing us? Fortunately, Nikki Lane has been applying for this job for some time. "Highway Queen" is her third release following "All or Nothin'," produced by Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and a high watermark that »»»
All Or Nothin' CD review - All Or Nothin'
"Any day or night time, it's always the right time/It's always the right time to do the wrong thing." Those are the first words that greet listeners who are brave enough and smart enough to cue up Nikki Lane's ruggedly perfect "All or Nothin'" and press "play." Part of Lane's appeal is that she's a throwback to the country women of old, a tough, no-nonsense, straight-shooting honky tonk girl who knows when to get dressed up and when to get messed up. »»»
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: Turnpike Troubadours are winners – The Turnpike Troubadours had a lot of competition when playing Beantown - the Red Sox playoff game first and foremost. No matter though because the country band put on their own winning show. That was no surprise given the individual abilities of the band, not to mention a plethora of worthy songs to choose from. It all starts with lead singer Evan Felker.... »»»
Concert Review: The Killer lives on with Low Cut Connie – Jerry Lee Lewis isn't exactly out and about hitting the clubs these days. But if he was searching for someone who was carrying on his torch, he would do well to check out Adam Weiner, the force behind Low Cut Connie. The Philly band was highly entertaining with Weiner a true force of nature. Think Lewis merged with Springsteen (although The Boss is The Boss).... »»»

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.... »»»

Not one to rest on his laurels, Willie Nelson's second studio release of the calendar year finds the artist dipping back into the Great American Songbook. Previous collections, including 1978's stellar Stardust, 2009's "American Classic" and 2016's "Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin," established Nelson as one of the finest modern interpreters of American standards.  »»»
