Introducing the Music of

Margaret Glaspy

Margaret Glaspy’s first album is a fabulous miniature, clocking in at just 34 minutes, that gets better every time you listen to it. It’s clearly a singer-songwriter record in that it’s the thoughts of one person, no matter how personal..... there’s plenty of space between the drums, bass, guitars and Glaspy’s voice, which is sometimes resigned, sometimes yearning.

The music of Kate Davis

Introducing Kate Davis


The music of multi-instrumentalist and singer Kate Davis has been lauded by MTV as one of 2014’s “15 Fresh Females Who Will Rule Pop,”  She's been turning heads in New York’s music scene since 2012. Whether she’s crooning rootsy ballads or plucking bright riffs from her bass, the gutsy songstress from Portland, Oregon, puts a fresh spin on the standards and brings a canonical sensibility to her own lush tracks.

If you put a mid-career Jenny Lewis album in a room with Regina Spektor’s coloring, Joanna Newsom’s lyric poetry, and a dose of Tina Fey’s sharp wit—then added a couple decades of rigorous musical education—Kate Davis might come strolling out.

This week's feature is:

Anderson East

Anderson East, a Nashvillian by way of Alabama, who can sing the blues with a sultry, countrified growl, is no exception to the rule. Evoking a twangier Ray LaMontagne or Amos Lee with notes of plaintive Ryan Adams, he's forming a sound all his own.  --- Rolling Stone

The Music of Brad Cole

This week's feature is Brad Cole!

"A fresh voice on the New York music scene, with a collection of well crafted songs and universal appeal" -- John Platt at 90.7 FM, NYC

 

The music of Liz Longely


Longley’s greatest strength is her ability to share her emotions while never conceding to whatever adversity comes her way. Both evocative and expressive, these songs reflect an independent individual who takes her cue from only her instincts, and, in turn, gives a performance that leaves an immediate impression. -- Pop Matters

The Music of Allen Stone

The music of Allen Stone

Allen Stone calls himself "a hippie with soul," and he sort of is, but one would never expect to look at him that he possesses one of the most soulful voices this side of Marvin Gaye, with a joyous, positive feel and energy to match. -- AllMusic.com

John Paul White

New Album by

John-Paul White

(formerly of the Civil Wars)

Beulah


With Beulah, White emerges as if drawn by song from a quiet life, drawn with that romantic regret. If White is out of practice, he doesn't show it. The songs on Beulah strike a tricky balance between precision in their craft and a loose folksiness in their sound and delivery. Longtime fans will recognize the pure tone of his voice and the finger-thrumming parlor sound of his acoustic guitar.  -- NPR review
