“Rainy Day Woman”
What a unique voice Kat Edmonson has! At first I wasn’t so sure about it…but the more I hear this single, the more I like it! The music itself reminds me of a Paolo Nutini or Sharon Jones track, but her voice really can’t be compared to anyone contemporary. It’s got a very old fashioned sound. Check it out:
This music video will brighten your day! The track “Smile” is so lovely and light. It has a bit of a throwback vibe, with surf guitar sounds and backing vocals. Add in this funny, sweet music video and you’re sure to be delighted…watch till the end:

“Stronger Than That”
The new album from Afie Jurvanen (aka Bahamas) is dynamite. I’ve been listening to it again and again in my car and I just secured tickets for the show in Boston on Saturday at Great Scott. I saw Bahamas live once before at an outdoor festival so I’m excited to experience the sound in an intimate bar-like venue.
Top to bottom, the album’s tracks are solid but I’m especially impressed by the single. “Stronger Than That” feels fun and catchy with it’s horns, electric guitar and backing vocals. Can’t wait to hear it live!
The new Counting Crows album comes out September 2nd and this is the single. I would have never called myself a big Counting Crows fan, but this song is killer! It’s catchy and fun and I’m excited to hear the rest of the album…
“She Always Takes It Black” [LIVE]
Wow, sorry it’s been 2 weeks since my last post. Still thinking about Newport Folk Festival and all the great musical discoveries there were to witness… Gregory Alan Isakov’s music is right up my alley – beautiful folk tunes with thoughtfully crafted words.

“Cherry Wine” [LIVE]
Alright, I’ve caught up on sleep and had a bit of time to process everything I experienced at the Newport Folk Festival last weekend. What an incredible three days of music it was!
I hadn’t heard the Irish musician known as Hozier before Newport and WOW, he’s amazing. Check this out, it’s easy to hear in this live performance…his voice is quite intoxicating:
Newport Folk Festival came SUDDENLY and now we’re in the midst of it.
AMAZING music is lined up for the weekend…I can’t wait to share some of what I’m taking in.
