Single | RISO – Closer

Matt and Rebekah Rolland are RISO, and ‘Closer’ is their new, forward-driving single. The Tucson-based artists are a power duo both in roots music and in love—they met as children in the Arizona Fiddle Contest and eventually became wed, with…

Album | Greenness – Sunrooms

“Sunrooms (in part) follows our personal story travelling across France and the UK on a quest for a place to call home, trying to find the spark of everyday magic and hoping for human progress.” The words of singer Cess…

Album – Mavis Staples and Levon Helm – Carry Me Home

Levon Helm and Mavis Staples were always a match made in heaven, from their first meeting at The Last Waltz in 1977, to their final performance in 2011, captured live on Carry Me Home. Despite that fact that she was born…

Album | Jenny Berkel – These Are the Sounds Left From Leaving

In some ways Jenny Berkel is wrapped in mystery – These Are the Sounds Left From Leaving is her first album in almost six years. Along the way she concentrated on her poetry while still performing live and creating a set of…

Premiere | AJ Haynes of Seratones – Freight Train

In 1904, Elizabeth Cotten wrote her popular folk song, ‘Freight Train’, at just 11-years-old. Throughout her 90 years on Earth, she helped to mould contemporary American roots music and, thusly, is a pioneering face of modern folk and blues. With…

Album | Dana Gavanski – When It Comes

Since the release of Yesterday Is Gone in 2020, Dana Gavanski has been through the wringer, making When It Comes virtually a new beginning, albeit one that almost didn’t happen. During the pandemic Gavanski lost her voice. With no tours, writing a new album…
