CD Review: Brendan James – The Day Is Brave

Brendan James The Day is Brave Decca Records     by Noel Wurst        Brendan James doesn’t really care about gaining your daughter’s attention, but he certainly wants yours.  While certainly appearing/sounding young, the melancholy nature of nearly all of his songs is going to fly over the heads (and cares) of all the […]

CD Review: Paula Nelson Band — Lucky 13

Paula Nelson BandLucky 13Justice Records by Al Kaufman It must be a blessing and a curse to be the daughter of outlaw country legend Willie Nelson. Paula Nelson grew up around some of the greatest musicians ever, Kris Kristofferson, Rita Coolidge, Waylon Jennings, and, of course, Johnny Cash. If just a quarter of all that […]

CD Review: Reckless Kelly — Bulletproof

Reckless KellyBulletproofYep Roc Records by Al Kaufman Austin's Reckless Kelly, named after Australian outlaw Ned "Reckless" Kelly, have never quite been able to live up to their image. While they try to convey themselves as renegade country-rockers, they often come across as Steve Earle with the rough edges rubbed clean. While Bulletproof offers a glimpse […]

Tyler Ramsey CD Review

Tyler Ramsey A Long Dream about Swimming across the Sea Echo Mountain Records By Al Kaufman Talk about your apt titles. Tyler Ramsey’s A Long Dream about Swimming across the Sea sounds just like what one thinks it should sound. It’s moody and atmospheric, ethereal and melancholy, pretty and delicate.
