Cathy Jewell-Please Blue Moon

There have been many songs and stories about the moon  in multiple genres. Earth’s perpetual and natural satellite has found especially found a home in country music, usually in shades of neon or blue. The latter is of course the case when it comes to Cathy Jewell’s latest offering and just like her lunar muse, this album shines brightly in the musical firmament. Flirting with the more classic side of traditional country from honky tonk style songs like “The Maybe Kind” and “Redneck Daddy”, to piano driven ballads very reminiscent of the Anne Murray or Ronnie Milsap era [...]

MG BOULTER “Clifftown”

Matthew Grahame Boulter è arrivato alla canzone d’autore di ispirazione folk ed acustica dopo essersi fatto le ossa nel circuito dei pub inglesi dove è cresciuto, nella cittadina di Southend-on-sea, affidandosi ad un corposo rock sulla falsariga di band come Dr. Feelgood e Eddie and the Hot Rods per poi abbracciare suoni più country-rock come leader dei Lucky Strikes. Personaggi come Ralph McTell e Allan Taylor ma anche credo Nick Drake e un po’ tutta la scena dei songwriters inglesi che guardano con attenzione all’America sono l’attuale fonte di ispirazione di MG Boulter e questo suo ultimo album [...]

Dr Friday-Re-Boot

Yes indeed folks, after a period of great anticipation , Canada’s favorite bad boys are back and they are doing so in style with a  Doctor Who like regeneration of their own, the re-recorded, revamped and revitalized compendium of some of their greatest songs. Re-Boot is very much the album any fan of Southern rock or blues worth the salt should have in either their physical or digital library. Groovy guitar riffs, rhythmic and bass lines that run like clockwork and all topped with the cutting edge vocals of recent addition, Michael Owens. From the opener “Those Were [...]

ASHLEIGH FLYNN & THE RIVERTERS TO RELEASE LIVE AT THE BLUE MOON

ALL-FEMALE AMERICANA OUTFIT, ASHLEIGH FLYNN & THE RIVETERS, RELEASES LIVE FROM THE BLUE MOON Recorded At The Oregon Country Fair   A pandemic can’t stop Ashleigh Flynn & The Riveters from sharing the magic of the Oregon Country Fair in the band’s second full-length release, Live from The Blue Moon. As originally broadcast from the annual mid-summer art and music festival in July 2019, the record captures a set for the ages with the six-piece lineup leaving it all on the stage.

BOB BRADSHAW “The Ghost Light”

Bob Bradshaw, irlandese di Cork trapiantato da anni a Boston, si è calato perfettamente nelle parte di ottimo ‘american troubadour’ senza naturalmente dimenticare le sue radici che, seppur poco manifestate stilisticamente nei suoi dischi, vengono esplicate attraverso una approccio spesso nostalgico e nitidamente descrittivo. Bob Bradshaw non ama parlare troppo di se nelle sue canzoni ma piuttosto costruire storie su personaggi diversi, narrare situazioni su piani affascinanti che lo pongono tra i credibili ‘storytellers’ della scena d’oltreoceano. Dopo il concept album intitolato “Queen Of The West” del 2019, ecco il suo ottavo lavoro che lo riporta all’ecclettismo dei [...]

Planetcountry’s exclusive interview with Jason Eady

Planetcountry’s exclusive interview with Jason Eady, one of the most important singers to the  music scene from Texas: 1 let's start from the end; during this crazy year you've been able to set this virtual guitar pull on FB named"sequestred songwriters" with an incredible number of talented performers. Who had the original idea? And why this instead of the usual on line live footage? J: When the quarantine first happened we were all scrambling to figure out the online shows. Then on April 6 it was Merle Haggard's birthday. It's a tradition in our scene that whenever we all [...]

LEGENDARY SONGWRITER ANDREW FARRISS RELEASES HIS DEBUT SOLO ALBUM

For Andrew Farriss, whose self-titled debut solo album is out worldwide today via BMG, it has never mattered what style of music he is writing. What is important is how the song makes you feel, the story it is telling and how the track lingers with you long after the music has finished playing. It was this ethos that the formidable songwriter took with him when it came to penning the tracks for what has become his debut solo album, a collection of songs that bring to life stories of outlaws, freedom, cowboys and love, and paint vivid imagery [...]

STEVE HILL “Desert Trip”

Il ‘viaggio nel deserto’ a cui si riferisce Steve Hill nel titolo del suo nuovo album è quello che lo ha portato a seguire uno dei maggiori appuntamenti musicali della stagione dei festival negli States, il Desert Trip Festival a Coachella in California appunto, nel deserto del Mojave. Fonte di ispirazione per suoni e luoghi, il deserto (e il conseguente lungo giro per le bellezze californiane, da Big Sur a Yosemite fino alla Death Valley)  ha stimolato fortemente il musicista canadese che ha qui ampliato ulteriormente i suoi orizzonti sonori e ci ha fornito quindi con “Desert Trip” [...]

MATT STELL – ‘THAT AIN’T ME NO MORE’

I’ve said it before but the thing that almost all of us in the music business have in common is a passion for the music [...]
