In Their Words: "Patrick really knows how to find the essence of a song. His cover is a full on Springsteen-banger complete with piano and bells. It's an honor to have such a talented artist cover our song, and it's all the more satisfying given that he is a friend and he has offered nothing but love and support to Free Energy from the start. He is an exceptional young man! Here's to Patrick Stickles!" -- Free Energy's Paul Sprangers.
In Their Words: "'Close and Closer' is about human interactions -- about all of the invisible connections between us and how we impact people and never know it ... and also about the desire to be so close to someone that you almost want to become a part of them." -- Singer Rachel Dannefer
According to FAME Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange, if Harmonious Wail “doesn't set your toe to tapping and put a smile on your face, you should probably get medication." With smoldering vocals laced in with jazzy mandolin and guitar lines reminiscent of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli, and an infectious blend of continental jazz, swing, gypsy music, and vocal melodies, Harmonious Wail dares its audiences to describe it in words. Winners of multiple MAMA awards including Best Jazz CD, Best Ensemble Vocalists of the Year, Favorite Jazz Band, Best World Artist, Best World Song, and Best Instrumentalist, Harmonious Wail has caught numerous listeners by total surprise during its more than 20-year history.
In Their Words: "Our song 'Land of Gathering' is influenced by childhood nostalgia and the rediscovery of metaphysical spaces only reached through an appreciation for the imagination." -- Singer Matthew Cook.

So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts.

The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan.

I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome."
The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt.
It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does!
It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
