John Howie, Jr. #1415

John Howie, Jr. #1415

I’ve been a fan of John Howie, Jr.’s music since he fronted the Two Dollar Pistols.  His new record with his current band of friends and rotating legends is John Howie, Jr. and the Rosewood Bluff.  The cover art by fellow North Carolinian, Skillet Gilmore, ices the cake on Everything Except Goodbye. When Howie broke […]

Featured Archive: #1219 Band of Heathens

Band of Heathens developed from a side project of several Austin songwriters at Momo’s, each of whom were pursuing other projects of solo work and sideman gigs. As they continued the residency and players flowed in and out of their scene, Gordy Quist, Ed Jurdy, and Colin Brooks realized that these Good Time Supper Club […]

Turchi #1413

Turchi’s new album, Can’t Bury Your Past, comes out this week on Devil Down Records. How Reed Turchi has time to write, record, and tour behind a record is a mystery of space and time. As label director for the recently revived Ardent Music (part of the larger Ardent Studios family), Turchi spends most of […]

Some songwriters craft tunes with the intent of making social commentary, but rarely do those same songs last through two Presidencies and manage to incite emotion from both sides of the political aisle. Such is the case for James McMurtry, who observes what he sees, but does not claim control of where his songs may […]

His first release was an EP called “Extra Better.” It garnered local and regional attention and radio play, while […]

Jonny “2 Bags” Wickersham #1412

I did not grow up with country music. The first time I heard “Ring Of Fire,” was on a Social Distortion album. So for me, twang comes from a punk source as logically as it does anywhere else, and Southern California has a distinct take on the music that I love. One of the first […]
