Eilen Jewell’s Sundown Over Ghost Town By Brian Rock The “Queen of the Minor Key,” Eilen Jewell, returns for her fifth album, Sundown Over Ghost Town. As the title implies, it’s a sparse, introspective musical nocturne. Gone are the jazz and country swing musical flourishes of her earlier work. Instead Eilen’s voice does the heavy […]

By Gerry Gomez They say that breaking up is hard to do. Some might choose to drink away their sorrows, others would get mad at the world and lash out in emotional rage. Still others might cocoon themselves up, lick their wounds and retreat from everyone. In the case of Los Angeleno and country troubadour […]

The Whiskey Charmers By Brian Rock If Eilen Jewell met The Far West on Some Velvet Evening, I’m pretty sure the result would be The Whiskey Charmers.  The Whiskey Charmers cleverly titled debut, The Whiskey Charmers, combines the best of all three artists to create a sound they aptly describe as Country Noir. The band […]

Stagecoach Day 3

Stagecoach Day 3

By Jake Tully Stagecoach Day 3: The third day of any music festival weekend marks an intrepid conclusion of debauchery or tom-foolery. In the case of Stagecoach, this was personified by way of cougars on the prowl after a few Lime-A-Ritas or fraternity brothers who beat their way into the crowds because they couldn’t cope […]

TJ West: LA Songsmith, Kip Boardman releases Boardman

By Kim Grant Kip Boardman isn’t given nearly enough credit for the amazing body of work that he has produced.  Adept at creating imagery with his lyrics, he also has a gift for melody and a unique tenor voice that quietly separates him from the crowded field of singer-songwriters.   With folk, pop, and a thread […]

Stagecoach Day 2

By Jake Tully Stagecoach Day 2: Day two greeted its patrons with a dark and portentous sky looming over the Empire Polo Fields. A sea change from Friday’s Santa Ana wind- riddled atmosphere, the dark clouds overhead proved some sort of hesitation for the day’s events – inciting a bawdiness not yet seen at 2015’s […]

Stagecoach Day 1

Stagecoach Day 1

By Jake Tully Stagecoach Day 1: Stagecoach, unlike Coachella, is specifically oriented for the older, rowdy, grits in their teeth, dust in their hair crowd. From the copious bales of hay for yer sittin’ plea-sure to the clearly demarcated signs leading to specific stages and booths, it’s slightly comforting to know that the festival has […]

Ron Sexsmit Carousel One By Jake Tully The oft-woebegone songsmith Ron Sexsmith appears to have some newfound jubilation on his latest record, Carousel One.

Carousel One is as sunny as the […]
