Joanne Shaw Taylor

June 24, 2019

Reckless Heart is Joanne Taylor Shaw's 6th in just a few years of recording and was produced in Detroit, Michigan a bit of a haul from Black Country in England where she grew up and indeed fell in love with the very native blues of that area, and of course soul music. So it should come as no surpri…

Cisco Adler

June 13, 2019

If you are initially shocked that this hip-hop producer has the chops to pull off a record called Hippieland, give your head a shake and think again. Adler's father, Lou Adler produced some of the greatest musicians we know of including The Mamas and The Papas and Carole King. In fact, this laid ba…

Ryan Zoidis

June 4, 2019

To describe Lettuce, in any specific genre would in itself be as silly as their name. They are a genre-busting six-member funk/jazz/soul/jam/psychedelic/hip-hop/art rock/ambient/avant-garde/experimental collective formed in 1992 by four alumni of the prestigious Berklee College of Music. But you pr…

Keb' Mo'

May 31, 2019

We've long admired Keb' Mo'. He is a crafty guitar playing bluesman, who is equally adept at both acoustic and electric blues guitar, but his real appeal is in his songwriting and storytelling. Oklahoma marks his 18th album, and it is likely his best yet, which is saying something given that he has…

Keller Williams

May 28, 2019

Keller Williams will release yet another record, "Add" due out May 31st. Keller is just about as prolific a singer-songwriter that there is in our scene these days. As you'll soon hear, Keller is always thinking about expanding his craft, and is constantly thinking about not only how he writes and …

Tal Wilkenfeld

May 24, 2019

Tal Wilkenfeld's sophomore record Love Remains has been out since mid March, and shame on you if you haven't heard it. Even more shameful probably is, is if you've never heard of this absolute prodigious woman who has played bass for the likes of Herbie Hancock and Jeff Beck. Her career has already…

Ori Naftaly of Southern Avenue

May 17, 2019

The record, the Memphis outfit's sophomore release is filled with great R&B, Blues, and Funk sounds, tightly wound in a great little package. There are outstanding vocal performances from lead singer Tierrini Jackson, not to mention awesome outstanding musicianship from the rest of the band includi…

Matt McDonald of Perpetual Groove

May 14, 2019

It's been a decade since Perpetual Groove put out a record, and in that time, they've had some line-up juggling, a tour year performance hiatus, and well just general music industry malaise and stuff. But they are back, and their self titled record due out May 17th is everything you'd expect from t…

Rob Chafin of The Werks

May 10, 2019

As we gear up for this summer’s 10th edition of the the Werkout Festival, being held back in Thornville, Ohio August 1st through 3rd 2019, we wanted to hear more about what the Werks are all about and indeed what they are up to for this event and overall. So we tracked down drummer Rob Chafin and o…

Andy Thorn

May 7, 2019

Andy Thorn is set to release a new solo record, Frontiers Like These, and I can tell you its pretty amazing. In case you aren't familiar with Andy's name or work, he is the banjo player for Leftover Salmon, after joining the Emmit-Nershi band in Colorado back in 2008. This transplanted North Caroli…

Steve Foltz of Trout Steak Revival

April 29, 2019

When you first hear Trout Steak Revival, you'll quickly fall in love with their terrific song writing, and beautiful vocal arrangements, to say nothing of their fantastic playing. They are, for all intents and purposes a Colorado Bluegrass band, but that classic sound doesn't do them justice. Trout…

All Americana/Singer-Songwriter ALL Interviews

Anders Osborne

April 26, 2019

Anders Osborne has been a long time favorite of ours, not only because he is an extremely talented writer and musician, but because of his wonderful spirit. This is a guy, who moved to the United States at a young age, and not only adopted New Orleans, Louisiana as his home, but became one with its…

Rob & Eli of Dopapod

April 22, 2019

It's an interesting time for Dopapod after a year long hiatus. They are set to get back at it, publicly, and on stage April 27th at the Capitol Theatre. We've been following them quite closely and are a fan of their electronic-ish, progrock-ish, jamband sound, so we were excited to hear that the bo…

Percy Hill

April 19, 2019

For those that don't know, or remember, Percy Hill were a band out of New Hampshire who met in 1991 at University studying jazz. They would in fact become part of that neo-jamband 2.0 scene of the 90s, and continued to tour through the oughts. They sort of fell out of the scene for a bit, but came …
