Ari and Mia Ari and Mia - "Land on Shore"
~ CD Review ~
Ari and Mia make exceptional music. The first cut, “Turn Me Round,” is softly sung and strung wonderfully upon a delicate acoustic web. In fact, all the tunes are poetic and artistically executed. more
Heather Maloney and Darlingside Heather Maloney + Darlingside: "Woodstock"
~ EP Review ~
Oh, this collection is just good beyond words. The musical boys of Darlingside are matched up with the ethereal femininity of Heather Maloney for this EP, and they are a revelation. ...

The Plainfields The Plainfields Bring Hope and Relief

This EP is a joyous and laid back excursion into lovely memories and contemplative moments. The seven songs are full of light and love. You won’t find any rage or angst here. The EP notes state that it was created based on their love of nature... more
