Some sites and artists you may not have heard of. These are friends and their music is exceptional, each in their own way. I hope you will visit their sites and enjoy them as much as I do.
AMAZ Radio - An internet radio station that is dedicated to 'Promoting and Preserving Folk, Acoustic, Americana, and Independent Music', and means it. Each time I listen, the programming gets better and better and better.
One of my oldest friends. Tracy was with the Christies for about ten minutes early on, then on to a brilliant career writing TV comedy and even has an Emmy to her name. Now she's writing musical masterpieces cleverly disguised as seemingly simple stories that end up surprising the heck out of you. Then she goes and adds The Reinforcements (her heavenly band) to the mix, and you've got pure joy. How does she do that?
Theta is where I receorded my new CD 'From The Village to the Canyon'. If you care about what the world will hear once you've released your music, contact Randy Tobin over at Theta and invite him and his team to join you on your journey. You won't be disappointed..
A first-Class reference treasure trove of information, videos, and history that traces and documents the roots and evolution of our national folk music heritage. It is hosted by friend Professor/musician Jim Moran. Bet you never knew that Kisses Sweeter Than Wine was originally an Irish song about a dead cow. Jim knows.
A true-blue folk-singer from the 60's who never stopped singing, writing and pouring his heart and soul into every song. He keeps getting better and better. I invite him to the house every chance I get just to share in his energy and love of music and see if some of it rubs off on me.
Forget American Idol and Top 40. Shaun belongs in The Library of Congress right off the bat. From the first guitar lick to the last note you'll swear you were listening to somone famous in a history book. Take it from me, a folkie who used to shiver on cold New York City street corners listening to Reverend Gary Davis sing and play, Shaun is the 'real deal'. www.shauncromwell.com
