The Continuum Project CD review - The Continuum Project
"The Continuum Project" is Lindsay Ell's cover of, not a John Mayer song, but a full John Mayer album. As good as it is, though, one must wonder about the necessity.. With Ell working towards finding her niche in mainstream country, how would reimagining the work of a distinctly non-country artist's album (and not even attempting to make these songs sound country) help her cause? Ell, who also recently collaborated with Keith Urban on the song "Horses" for his »»»
The Project CD review - The Project
It's odd, when you consider how many singer/songwriters play guitar, how few of them are consummate guitar players. And even fewer of those are ladies. Lindsay Ell knows this all too well, and for years has been applying for a job that is only starting to exist. She's the pretty lady crooning up front and the bandleader. Ell mastered most anything with strings as a teen. The Calgary, Canada native was discovered by fellow Canuck Randy Bachman, who ushered in her earliest recordings while »»»
Shine on Rainy Day CD review - Shine on Rainy Day
Brent Cobb is an unpretentious sort of guy, and that in itself makes him an unusual entity in an entertainment arena built on flash and sparkle. That at least is the attitude he purveys on "Shine on Rainy Day," an album that takes its cues from everyday aspirations. The songs center on the simpler things that affect us all, whether the solace of living life in the country or the everyday challenges that all too often take a toll. It's that ying and yang that that's most »»»
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: Mumford and Sons up to snuff, for the most part – Mumford and Sons have always played it smart when it has come to career moves. They have not overtoured by becoming regular fixtures on the touring circuit. Their M.O. is to tour just enough upon an album release and then disappear for a stretch. Ditto for releasing new music ("Delta" just came out last month, Mumford's first release... »»»
Concert Review: Finally back, Kodaline brings the optimism – Kodaline may have taken a long layoff in playing Beantown - a good 3 1/2 years - but in this fickle musical world, that did not mean their fans abandoned them for a brand new thing. In fact, the venue sold out weeks ago. No surprise because, once again, the Irish rock band admirably combined old and new. Kodaline was a bit of a musical potpourri of... »»»
