  • Gretchen Peters – Interview and Gig Review

    I begin my interview with Gretchen Peters on a congratulatory note. She has just scooped International Album and Song of the year (2015) at the inaugural UK Americana Awards in London. Back in 1995 she won best song of the year at the Country Music Associations with “Independence Day”. So twenty years on with 10 albums to...

  • Debbie Bond – Enjoy The Ride

    Often likened to Bonnie Raitt, Alabama blues-lady Debbie Bond’s latest release, ‘Enjoy The Ride’, kicks off strongly with an upbeat, optimistic surge of soul and passion on the title track before shifting a few gears with introspective inner searching reaching out in tracks ‘Start With Love’, the dizzying despair and combative edge of ‘Left Me In The Dark’, and the reflective beauty of...

  • Josh Goodlett – I Don’t Usually Do This

    With an instantly-recognizable tenor that merges a Northern Kentucky twang with the gritty tone of a Southern Rock star, Country artist Josh Goodlett sounds like he’s lived what he’s singing on his poignant new single, “I Don’t Usually Do This.” In telling a woman that he normally doesn’t let anyone touch his heart, he puts a new twist on an old cliché with both passion and...

  • Six Tips for Improving Songwriting Motivation

    As passionate as we are about our songwriting, the reality is that sometimes it’s difficult to motivate ourselves to write. Whether it’s the fear of plumbing our emotional depths or just good old fatigue after a long day, there are often obstacles to overcome when it’s time to write. While flashes of inspiration are great, we can’t always count on the muse showing up on our schedule. Instead, we’ve...

  • Eric Bibb – The World of Blues

    Eric Bibb is an internationally acclaimed bluesman who just can't seem to break the habit of life in the Nordic states. Since moving to Sweden from his native New York in around 1970, Bibb has travelled the world playing, touring, recording and generally making a name for himself while always scratching the itch that is Sweden. Again based in Sweden, near Nykoping, he laughs...

  • Swimwear – High Summer

    Thinking about tracks like the Scissor Sister’s I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’, Foster the People’s Pumped Up Kicks and the Friendly Fires’ Hawwiian Air you can’t help but feel that some of that infectiously feel-good dance pop pulse slowly has drifted from the periphery of contemporary music. Whatever People Say That I Am, I’m Not, The Streets, The Strokes and Lily Allen’s Alright Still; a decade...

  • Mangelwurzel Exploded Over a Frenzied Crowd at Newtown Social Club

    It was quiet for a Saturday night in Newtown, aside from the occasional inebriated Kings Cross dropout, bringing his lifeless irritation elsewhere due to recent legislative force. Upon entering Newtown Social Club, the scene was similar but with an air of possibility and anticipation for the events to take place. The fabled, self-confessed weirdos Mangelwurzel were to ply lucky attendees with...

  • Beck Impresses Mightily in Las Vegas

    When I had last caught Beck at Coachella in April 2014, the ageless singer-songwriter-guitarist was performing on the main stage in front of 100,000 music fans in Indio, California, fresh on the heels of the recent release of his stunning disc "Morning Phase" (released in February 2014, the disc would go on to win Album of the Year and Best Rock ...

  • Kathy Sledge Talks About Solos and Sisters

    The disco era. Some want to toss it out as a mulligan in music history. Children of the era defend it with a Dangerfield-esque “don’t get no respect” stance. Nonetheless it produced some of the most iconic music of all time and was not just a fad; it was a cultural phenomenon that defined a generation and paved the way for modern dance music. Kathy Sledge was at the forefront...

  • What Would You Do If You Found Your Fiancé’s Porno?

    As they traverse the country on the back of their latest single My Heart, Nick and Toby from High-tails put their hearts on their sleeves as they tackle some big romance issues and give wise advice to five lonely people. Since this is the My Heart tour we’ve decided to keep things romantic. We did something similar with Donny Benet, so we had to try it again with you guys. We have...

  • DMA’S – Hills End

    The words Brit-Pop have been thrown around their fair share ever since Sydney’s lively trio DMA’S broke onto the scene throughout in 2014 – with their spontaneous release of their debut EP along with their signing to I OH YOU. Shortly after their debut release alongside the mass praise of their single Delete, claims of “Brit-Pop revival” flooded the airwaves...

  • Doprah – Wasting

    Although some Aussie listeners may be unfamiliar with Doprah, there’s been a growing buzz surrounding the Christchurch six-piece following the release of their self-titled EP in 2014. Under a veneer of Kawaii visuals the group draws from studio experimentation of Radiohead, Portishead and Massive Attack to create their own unique signature sound. It’s easy to draw some analogy to the music...

  • Fender Deluxe Reverb – The Most Played, Recorded & Sought After Amp in Music History

    Fender have spawned countless classic pieces of musical equipment since the company’s inception in 1946. Many have been innovative, some genre-defining while other have been flops (wrong for their time or just plain weird). Then there’s another category, one that sits above the others on a plane of untouchability. Few pieces of musical equipment can boast such ...

  • The Jezabels – Synthia

    With two well received LPs behind them already, The Jezabels smash it out of the ballpark with their third studio album, Synthia. This time round they set out to create an 80s synth-pop influenced epic that explores, criticises and celebrates concepts of women and femininity in the music industry. With this album the band seems to have strayed form their usual approach, utilising synths and...

  • Music for Your Health

    Human beings are innately musical. Our biology demands it. Every human heart beats in its own unique rhythm. The accent patterns of our speech identify us city folk from South Boston or Midwestern farmers from South Dakota. Scientists are convinced that the recognition of specific “danger” sounds (a baby’s cry, a woman’s scream, a saber-toothed tiger’s growl) has had...

  • How Much Does A Songwriter Need To Know About Music?

    It’s a reasonable question, especially for a writer that doesn’t have aspirations to be a performer. If you’ve got a basic level of skill on your instrument and you’re writing your songs, haven’t you got what you need? After all, you don’t have to be a great singer to write a great melody....so do you have to be a great musician to write a great song? The short answer is, no, you...

  • Roy Irwin – S.O.D.A

    Despite already having three albums under his belt, plus a staggering eleven EPs and a compilation tacked onto the list, Roy Irwin isn’t down with being described as prolific. Identifying more with artists like Jay Reatard, who’s extensive catalogue included demos and outtakes, Irwin prefers to simply get it out there. His latest creative effort is his fourth LP, S.O.D.A, which is due for release next month.

  • Three Tips for Writing Better Song Intros

    In an era of significantly shorter attention spans and increasingly distracted listeners, you, as songwriters, have an even greater responsibility to grab your audience as quickly as possible. The first and best place to do this is in your song’s intro. This can be done partly in your songwriting and partly in the production of the song demo. By writing better song intros, you'll stand...

  • Four Reasons Songwriting Talent Isn’t Enough

    I’d like to begin this article by saying that I’m not a cynic. On the contrary, I’m a big believer that if your dream is to have success with your music, then, in time, you will find that success. However, I am a realist. There are rarely shortcuts in our line of work and being a talented songwriter, in my experience, simply isn’t enough to guarantee success. It takes a combination...

  • Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, Scotland

    Celtic Connections is easily one of - if not The - most important roots music festivals in Europe, and maybe even the planet. With around 2000 artists, most tastes are catered for, though Americana and folk material tends to dominate these days. A few years back blues had a more prominent place but this seems to be slipping at times from the frontline thinking.
