Elle King – Come Get Your Wife

Elle King goes with a country sound on her CD. King has enjoyed success on duets with Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert. “There’s something about how you put the pieces together,” King offers of her first true country project. “This whole album is a crazy quilt of all sorts of moments and things that might not seem to go together, but because they’re me, they do. It’s very Southern Ohio, very who we are – and very much a lot of people who are just like me, because I know they’re out there.”

Sykamore, Nashville’s breakout newcomer, to tour the UK at the end of Jan 2023

Sykamore, who was discovered by songwriting heavyweight Rhett Akins (Dustin Lynch, Rodney Atkins) released her debut studio album Pinto in August 2022. The album was produced by Michael Knox (Kelly Clarkson), and recorded over the course of three separate sessions at Nashville’s Treasure Isle studio. Sykamore cut basic tracks live with a full band lineup that mixed 80’s synthesiser with muscular electric guitar and larger-than-life drums. It was a sound Sykamore had in her head ever since she wrote the album’s title track, a soaring earworm that spins a used car into a clever metaphor for new love. Sykamore will be travelling to the UK at the end of January 2023, to [...]

DIETER VAN DER WESTEN BAND “Honesty Of The Hopeful”

Dieter Van Der Westen è cantante, autore, chitarrista, produttore di Amsterdam attivo in particolare in ambito americana e anche in quello legato a certa ‘world music’. Questo album con la sua band è naturalmente incentrato su un mix di roots music decisamente intrigante ed elegante.

La sezione ritmica nelle mani del [...]

La Storia della Country Music. Vol.1 -dalle origini al New Traditional Sound” di Stefano Frapolli

Un po’ di ricostruzione storica, un po’ di analisi dei diversi contesti di mercato, un po’ di profili artistici dei protagonisti di cento anni di storia di musica Country, un po’ di tendenze in atto in questi lunghi decenni di arte e mestiere. Un po’, anzi soprattutto, di canzoni, dischi, voci, suoni, ossia molto della parte emersa che ci ha fatto innamorare di questo “genere” così apparentemente distante, eppure così capace di farci sentire quasi come figli d’America. Frapolli non è facile da leggere, a tratti la sua prosa è legnosa, complicata; mette insieme profilature analitiche complesse, con [...]
