Cale Tyson #1506

Cale Tyson #1506

Cale Tyson surprised us with news of his upcoming country soul debut album, recording this spring at FAME Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. His two recent EPs took him to traditional country music, cementing his transition from Texas indie folk to Nashville. After straddling the bubble of Belmont and real-life working musicians, Tyson is ready […]

Ben Miller Band #1505

Ben Miller Band #1505

Ben Miller Band first caught my attention at a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Oktoberfest event, where I had gone to see Bloodkin (previously featured here) perform and catch (the late) Bobby Keys play with them on a few songs. I was not previously familiar with the band, but their homemade washtub bass, stomp boxes, electric […]

Steve Earle #1504

Steve Earle #1504

Steve Earle channels his Texas Blues roots with his latest album, Terraplane — named for the noted song by Robert Johnson, but known to me in the well-circulated Canned Heat live tapes. Referencing everyone from Lightning Hopkins to Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Earle interviews himself, but does not get caught up in his script. […]

6 String Drag #1503

6 String Drag #1503

Kenny Roby (previously featured here) and Rob Keller disbanded 6 String Drag at the top of their game, nearly 15 years ago. The first new album from 6 String Drag, Roots Rock N Roll, brings the group together again, ranging the gamut of roots rock with their brother-from-another-mother harmonies. Why would a regionally beloved band, […]

John Moreland

John Moreland

John Moreland has been called a “grand secret waiting to be uncovered.” Fans who have already discovered this Tulsa, Oklahoma musician can’t get enough. He was one of the talented musicians we featured in Oklahoma: The State of Songwriting, though his appeal reaches far beyond the Midwest. The gritty cable TV hit Sons of Anarchy […]

Top 5 Emerging Oklahoma Songwriters

Top 5 Emerging Oklahoma Songwriters

Oklahoma is rich with material for folk music. It’s where hardheaded pioneers met hardscrabble conditions; where tradition and progress converge and conflict; where tornadoes sweep across the plains; and where the dusty open road beckons from all directions. Songs from the state continue to seep into the psyche of the American songwriter, and often-covered pieces […]

Tea Leaf Green

Tea Leaf Green

Our 2013 alumni, Tea Leaf Green, have been “leaking” the tracks from their new album one by one. As Trevor Garrod shared in our conversation, the band has not shied away from making massive changes in their sound or lineup, and this roller coaster keeps the ride interesting. LISTEN Unfortunately, you cannot listen to this […]

Jim White #1501

Jim White #1501

Jim White’s songwriting and visual art are some of the tangible fruits of his sometimes dark thoughts, but he is not the tortured Southern Gothic poet of his past. When Packway Handle Band (previously featured on Country Fried Rock HERE), sought White’s assistance in producing their new record, they ended up collaborating in a back […]
