Carla Ulbrich – Joe’s Ex-Girlfriend

“Joe’s Ex-Girlfriends” – Carla Ulbrich I’m not sure if Carla Ulbrich should be classified as a comedian first and a musician second or the other way around. Her songs are relevant to the ironies of modern life and give a pause to stop and look at what kind of a mess we make of ourselves. …

Janiva – Love Wins Again

“I Won’t Cry” – Janiva Magness There hasn’t been a female Blues singer that has gone straight to my heart like Janiva since Janis Joplin teamed up with Big Brother and the Holding Company to make “Cheap Thrills” She is the best that this century has seen. Just WOW and more WOW. If you even …

Those WERE the Days My Friend

Circe lets loose the hounds It isn’t often that a pretty, talented lead singer lets her backups’s have a shot at the limelight. Rachel Wolf and Laura Drew are just perfect backing Circe up. Their harmonies capture all of the beauty and spunk of The Andrews Sisters with the overtones of Mary Ford. Then she …

Bird’s Amazing Odyssey & The Meaning of Tea

My mother used to sing to her children.  There were quite a few of us (I was number 9 of 13).  Singing was one of her tools for getting the herd to settle down at night and to give her a little peace and quiet. It wasn’t just nursery rhymes or lullabies, but just what ever …

Milk Crate #G1

Social Media Buttons Sometimes, sorting the albums in the milk crates was based on the album art.  This milk crate must have been loaded because of the beautiful women on the covers.  This set includes five gorgeous women with incredible songwriting skills and presence in their performances.  Give a listen to these impressive indie singer/songwriters.  …

Little River Band

Little River Band Maryland Live – 22 Jan, 2014 The first time Cindy and I saw the Little River Band in concert was in Colorado in 1984.  They put on a jaw dropping performance that became one of my reference points for what a concert should be.  This in mind there was more than a little reservation …

Blue Sky Riders

Generally, country music sets as well with me as white lightning (moonshine). It is harsh, tastes bad, and makes my head hurt. However, there are songs that are recorded by ‘country’ musicians that transcend the genre. Blue Sky Riders is a group that truly fits this transcendent country style. If it needed to be categorized …
