The songs say “I hope you feel better, I love you, I’m glad we’re here on Earth.” Healing kinds of songs, inspired by the desire to help wounded bodies and hearts and to lift your spirits.

Kathryn Hallberg – “Nocturnal”

In Uncategorized on July 18, 2012 at 3:04 pm

Kathryn Hallberg has probably heard it all her life, or at least since the 2009 release of her first EP, when she was just 14 years old: so young but so mature. “I don’t have as much life experience as other writers. (But) I use my desire to go out and experience life as fuel and inspiration for writing,” she says. “I feel like my age is something of a double-edged sword. On one hand, I’m thankful to have this head start, and I’m sure people are intrigued by my youth. But at the same time, I want to be taken seriously. Just because I’m young doesn’t mean I don’t have something to say. I want people to focus on my music, not my age.” She’s 18 now, and her second effort, “Nocturnal,” is a lovely, layered affair. Wisps of folk and country peek out amid the pop framework. Hallberg’s voice is an unadorned, unaffected thing of beauty. And, yes, it’s all bracingly emotive and emotional, far beyond her age. “Nocturnal” was produced by Texas stalwart Kyle Hutton and features Grammy winner Lloyd Maines. (It’s early, but expect to see it on my year-end list of favorite albums.)

The Bigsbys – True Story

In Uncategorized on July 18, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Album Cover“The best songs seem to come from the people and stories you know best, from the things you’ve experienced.” – Alex Smith
True Story, the new album from The Bigsbys consists of stories that are all a little bit true. The Bigsbys are a hard group to fit into a genre, but easy to appreciate. Soul permeates the sound of the band. The Bigsbys music is a merging of Roots Rock, Alt Country, Blues and Soul. The band is comprised of four guys from Palestine, Texas. Alex Smith(Guitar/Lead Vocals) has been writing songs for the better part of a decade, and over the last few years has built a foundation for his words to be heard. Brad Hobson(Lead Guitar/Vocals) brings a bluesy/Indie Rock style to the group that gives the tunes a sound like no other. Russell McClendon(Bass) keeps the vibe funky and fresh from start to finish on every song, and at every show. Joey Tritico(Drums) certainly helps prepetuate the myth Rock N Roll belongs in Texas. The bands sound is unique, and their ability to play to any crowd seperates them from the pack of bands touring Texas. The bands first studio album “True Story” features 10 original compositions by the band recorded at Stormy Cooper’s Studios in Houston, Texas. The album is available now on ITunes, Amazon and Lonestar Music

Merchants Of Moonshine – More Than Whiskey

In Uncategorized on July 18, 2012 at 2:52 pm

To what to attribute Merchants of Moonshine’s quick success depends on who you ask. The fans (a.k.a. Moonshiners) will tell you it is the energetic live show and original songwriting. The band will tell you that it’s probably because they are a group of younger musicians exploring and revitalizing an older style of country. Thus, the music appeals to all ages. The younger crowd is relishing it for the first time as “Nashville”, via pop country radio, has been backing artists that sound more on the rock-n-roll side of country for the past 20 years. The older crowd is embracing M.o.M.’s modern translation of the country they grew up with. Or maybe it’s best described in the two most recurring compliments the band receives: “I ended up here tonight because of___________ (fill in the blank). Country music isn’t my thing, but I love this band!” “I enjoy watching your band because y’all truly enjoy playing music together. We can see it and feel it. Your energy pulls everyone in!”

Buzz Cason – Surf and Turf

In Uncategorized on July 18, 2012 at 2:42 pm

introducing his latest project, “Surf and Turf,” a hybrid between Americana-style music, country music, and 1960s beach music. The new project features “Sandy,” a hit for Ronny and the Daytonas, a surf/hot-rod music group whose hits included “GTO” as well as “Sandy.” The surf portion of the CD contains songs that are unique in that they focus on the Panhandle region of Fla. where so many Southeasterners vacation. Cason is accompanied on the beach portion of “Surf and Turf,” by dynamic duo Sugarcane Jane — Anthony and Savana Lee Crawford — who recorded the beach songs at their Gulf Coast studio
