This week our featured artist is Canadian singer-songwriter Brooke Miller (left), who mixes sultry vocals with solid songs and highly skilled guitar work.
Lyle Lovett and Keb Mo, singing alone and together. James Taylor singing duets with Allison Kraus, JD Souther and Natalie Cole.
Plus some great artists you've probably never heard like The Subdudes, Drew Nelson and The Avett Brothers.
Not to mention songs by Bill Kirchen, Nickel Creek, Eric Clapton, Pieta Brown, The Jayhawks, Shawn Colvin and Shelby Lynne. Wow!
A new KRUU feature for you. Since March 2010, DJ Underground Man (a.k.a., Andy Bargerstock) has been writing a monthly music review column for the Iowa Source Magazine. Now, DJ-UM has recorded these reviews and enhanced them with music samples. We encourage you to explore this new URL at: http://www.kruufm.com/station/archives/47.
When you go to this link, you can choose to "listen" or "download" the MP3 files of each of the 6-8 minute reviews. Exception: Erick Hovey's 18-minute interview includes three complete tracks (approved by him). Share with your friends and return each month to hear the latest reviews of artists/groups from the outer edges of the music scene.
