An Interview with Scott H. Biram
Scott H. Biram didn’t set out to achieve any radical breakthroughs (musically speaking, at least) with his latest studio LP, Nothin’ But Blood , but creative stability seems to suit him just fine. “Part of that has to do with how much I’m on the road these ...

Review: Priscilla Ahn - This is Where We Are
Priscilla Ahn sings with such gorgeous, unaffected grace that any extravagant or otherwise cluttered production would only undermine one of the loveliest voices to emerge in the past decade. That said, with her third and latest album, This is Where We Are (...

Suzy Bogguss knows a great song when she hears one, and in a career spanning three decades she’s recorded more than a few. As both a performer of her own compositions and an interpreter of works by such esteemed artists as Nanci Griffith (“Outbound Plane”), John Hiatt (“Drive South”), and Guy Clark (“Instant Coffee Blues”), she’s distinguished herself as one of country music’s most eclectic and versatile talents. 

All the while Bogguss gained invaluable insight to matters of craft and storytelling, knowledge which no doubt served her well in making her latest album, Lucky, on which she covers a dozen absolute classics written by the legendary Merle Haggard.

Boz Scaggs Commands New Dukes of September DVD
This is the sort of gig that looks promising on paper: three respected music veterans, each one as ostensibly integral to the lineup as the others, all of them playing together on a set of some mutually-loved old favorites (classic soul and R&B covers, most...
