Lewis & Leigh

Wales and Mississippi’s Lewis & Leigh, respectively, released their sophomore EP, Missing Years, a month ago to the day. A four song set of 3 originals and a Coldplay cover that almost made me enjoy the band, almost. If Coldplay consistently sounded like Lewis & Leigh, they’d have a fan in me. Ironically connecting through […]

Hayes Carll

Failure has always been a favorite topic of Texas troubadour Hayes Carll. Much of the songwriting catalog he’s built up over the last dozen-plus years revolves around dashed dreams, doomed romance and drunken predicaments. Very often, though, he’s leavened the losing with cleverly deployed gallows humor, self-deprecation and yarn spinning, linking his work to his […]

The Weather Station

Ryley Walker

On first listen, it’s easy to mistake Ryley Walker’s sophomore album as the forgotten effort of a heralded ’60s British folk-jazz quartet. Opening with its earthy title track, Primrose Green whisks listeners back several decades. The Chicago songwriter wields his guitar with masterful ease. It’s more than an extension of his body — it’s an extension of […]

Barna Howard

Barna Howard was born and raised in a quintessential Midwest town. His youth in Eureka, Missouri was pure Americana – the sort of childhood that inspired E.T.-era Spielberg – baseball cards in his bicycle spokes, flying freely down Main Street and through neighbors’ backyards. However, much of Barna’s story is not unique to his hometown, […]
