Steve Greeley Steve Greeley - Love Town
~ CD Review ~
The biggest thing I can say about Steve Greeley is where the hell has he been? This man is a profound talent – a classic 20th century popular songwriter. more
Samantha Farrell - September Sun
~ CD Review ~
Samantha Farrell brings to mind the voices of Anais Mitchell and Nora Jones. She has exceptional powers of creativity. The subject matter, lyrics, musical accompaniment and production is a joy to listen to – more
Ghosts of Johnson City The Ghosts of Johnson City - Again!
~ Venue: Port City Blue, Portland ME ~ March 25. 2016 ~
Well, the last time I saw these guys I said I was going to see them again as soon as possible. So my son, Ranin, and I went to Port City Blue again with skads of other people, and the place was packed by 5:30 pm. more
Amy White Amy White - Didn't We Waltz
~ CD Review ~
Amy White is half of the duo Al Petteway and Amy White, who have been in the music business for years and are talented to the bone. more
Seth Davis Seth Davis - Life is Long
~ CD Review ~
There's something gritty and honest in Seth Davis's music. I listen and listen to this album and I keep hearing new things. His voice sounds like Leonard Cohen. more
Ghosts of Johnson City The Ghosts of Johnson City
~ Venue: Port City Blue, Portland, ME ~ January 29, 2016 ~
We walked in on a cold winter night and found a table up front. The five band members came in and set up, looking like lumberjacks fresh from the woods in their knitted hats and flannel shirts. more
Clara Junken Clara Junken - Out to See
~ CD Review ~
This woman can sing. My God. The CD starts out commanding my attention with the song, “You are the Sun” – a wailing slide guitar, and Clara making it very plain that she can express her pain vocally with an instrument that falls somewhere between Fiona Apple and Eva Cassidy. more
Terry Kitchen Terry Kitchen -The Post-American Century
~ CD Review ~
Oh this is fine pickin' and singin'. The homespunny opening number, “So Much More to Home” is a joyful and yearning song that opens the album with delicate harmonies by Mara Levine. more
Laney Jones and the Spirits – Sunshiny Exuberance!
Venue: One Longfellow Square, Portland, ME ~ April 23, 2015 ~
Laney Jones has an innocent persona brimming over with love for music and song, and so does her band. They opened Wednesday evening for the formidable Spuyten Duyvil, who was just as charmed by her as we were in the audience. more
Spuyten Duyvil Give Earthy and Inspired Performance
Venue: One Longfellow Square, Portland, ME ~ April 23, 2015 ~
Spuyten Duyvil played their hearts out on Wednesday evening. If you’ve heard their new CD, The Social Music Hour Volume I, then you know the gritty sound and feeling of their music.
[Editor's note: We are featuring both a live performance and CD review of Spuyten Duyvil.] more
