Keep Your Eyes Peeled for: Sam Pinkerton

Nashville-based singer/songwriter Sam Pinkerton has released three songs, all of which are available to download from her website. Her formula is simple: guitar, voice, feeling. It is amazing how much the pick of guitar can make you feel, especially when it is paired with a perplexingly calming voice – a voice with such a peculiar… Read More ›

What About Me: 12 Richie Havens Tunes You Should Hear

I know I usually write about prog, but please indulge a momentary lapse so that I might introduce you to (or remind you of, if you are a fellow listener) Mr. Richie Havens. There are few artists out there whose work I have collected over the years who possess an amount of raw soul even close to… Read More ›

Introducing singer-songwriter, Justin Tracy

My faith in singer-songwriters has been restored and kept alive. Now, I know that there are a lot of people out there who will moan and sigh at the thought of a new singer-songwriter, but Justin Tracy is one who stands out among the rest. Born in London, Justin’s musical career started at the young… Read More ›

Cri de Coeur: The Wooden Sky’s “Every Child a Daughter, Every Moon a Sun”

Drag a simple hand-carved chair across the floor, and join the silence that is collecting in front of the stage.  Hush. Everyone is listening to the band. Notes fall from the air like paper airplanes and land in our laps.  The surrounding world dims in the fading light; the sun setting over the West End. … Read More ›

ALBUM REVIEW: Sugar & The Hi Lows – Sugar & The Hi Lows, 2012

Sugar & The Hi Lows’ 2012 self-titled EP is a debut, of sorts.  Success is common for Nashville-based songwriters Trent Dabbs and Amy Stroup, having more than 100 television appearances between the two of them.  But Sugar & The Hi Lows is something old made new. Stepping out from the world of singer-songwriters, Sugar &… Read More ›

Neil Young & Crazy Horse @ The Air Canada Centre (November 19, 2012)

For those of you who have never seen Neil Young live, don’t be fooled by the silver hair and the 67 years that he’s lived. Based on what I had witnessed at his concert last night, it seems that the years have done absolutely nothing to weaken Young’s energy and passion for his music and… Read More ›

ALBUM REVIEW: Scott Rudd’s “Demos” EP

The cover says it all: an unattended grassy expanse beneath the fading light of a dusky sky, and a background blurred to the point of inscrutability. This is mellow music that, in the rawest and most honest of manners, captures and explores the emotional terrain and fallout of a broken-hearted, aching soul. NYC photographer/folkie Scott… Read More ›

Keep Your Eyes Peeled for: Matthew de Zoete

I don’t know about you, but ever so often, I crave to be totally immersed in a good story. So, when I stumbled upon Matthew de Zoete’s latest album, Colour Film, I prepared myself for a good storytelling as he suggested I should: I dimmed the lights, put on a good pair of headphones, and sat… Read More ›

Keep Your Eyes Peeled for: Sunsplitter

You can call it the antithesis to some of today’s boneless music. Folk is witnessing a revival in the indie scene, and those who are nostalgic for rooted music are excited, including myself. Perhaps it’s the honesty of homegrown music that listeners crave nowadays or that people simply want to hear a good story. Regardless,… Read More ›
