Hans Chew

Hans currently lives in New York City and has completed his first full-length solo record, “Tennessee and Other Stories.” His most distinctive influences are those of New Orleans pianists James Booker, Professor Longhair, and Dr. John, and the post-punk singer/songwriter Nick Cave. “4 stars…rollicking, lascivious, honky-tonking…a terrific full-blooded singer-songwriter…a lost classic from 2010” Uncut (No […]

Frontier Ruckus

“…delicate, finger-picked banjos, aching, oaky violin and the haunting voice of frontman Matthew Milia, who conjures what might happen had Neutral Milk Hotel’s Jeff Mangum been raised in a log cabin. Their songs are full of rich, rural details: frozen lakes, swaying trees, highway lights glowing in the deep night. Add to the mix baleful […]

Little Miss Higgins

“Alberta girl Little Miss Higgins captured her rootsy rich country blues at not one but two stops on the road this year, one in Calgary and one in Saskatoon. Tunes like The Dirty Ol’ Tractor Song, Velvet Barley Bed and Broadcast Boogie just might make you wish you attended both gigs.” Calgary Herald – Best […]

Sam Amidon

Sam Amidon suspects the trad-folk revival may be a reaction to the clinical sound of downloads. “The rough sound is definitely part of its appeal,” he says. “None of us wants to make polished music. These days, it’s all about DIY, and we’re definitely doing things our own way.” “Beth Orton appears on Mr. Amidon’s […]

Beth Orton

Known for her “Folktronica” sound, BRIT award winning Beth Orton was originally known for her collaborations with William Orbit and The Chemical Brothers in the mid 90’s. Since her 2006 release, “Comfort of Strangers,” she has moved towards a more folk-based sound, with a definite 70s folk influence (Neil Young, Rickie Lee Jones and Joni […]

Wilko Johnson

The original Dr Feelgood guitarist, Johnson’s choppy guitar style and interesting dress sense kept pub-rock rocking the pubs during the 1970’s. Following a stint with Ian Dury and The Blockheads, the Wilko Johnson Band was formed with ex-Blockhead Norman Watt-Roy on bass and Dylan Howe on drums, adding up to one of the most exciting […]

Terry Reid

Terry Reid’s voice is extraordinary- the finest British blue-eyed soulman. Nicknamed ‘Superlungs’ his shows are known for intimacy, showmanship and his interpre­tive vocal style. Every once in a while his friends and peers drop by and pay their respects; Robert Plant, Keith Richards, Roger Daltrey have all looked Terry up to play when they were […]

Doug Paisley

There’s something sure-footed and ageless about Paisley’s simple, acoustic-and-piano songs, lent further authenticity by an old school voice that drifts easily between folk and country. At times he sings like ‘70’s JJ Cale, all husk and gentle intonation, at others with the earthy chill of Hoyt Axton or Will Oldham. No. 10 Album of the […]

Stacie Collins

Sporting a honky-tonk wail while backed by a slam-bang rock ‘n’ roll band, she weds Stones fried rock-n-roll, gut bucket blues and vintage honky-tonk. Based in Nashville, TN, she tours the US, Scandinavia and Europe regularly and has even spawned a Japanese “Stacie Col­lins” tribute band. “There’s a brash Bakersfield tinge to the country rock […]
