Stay Part of Rock and Blues Muse Community!

Dear Fans of Rock and Blues Muse,

Because of Facebook’s major changes to business pages, you will not be seeing our concert and album reviews, artist interviews, new video/single premieres, Rock Muse, new artist features, playlists and more, on Facebook like you used to.

Why?

Because Facebook is dramatically reducing exposure for business pages like ours. Their focus is now more on personal pages and friends and family. Which is great, except it’s bad news for Rock and Blues Muse followers. You probably have noticed changes already. I know we have.

Album Review: Mind Lion by Arielle

By Tom O’Connor

Arielle brings her ethereal vocals and solid guitar work to Mind Lion, a new five-song EP released February 9th. Currently on tour as direct support for Eric Johnson, Arielle’s music offers a pure, powerful connection through authentic songwriting, reminiscent of the 60’s and 70’s. Self-described as a “wander-lusting gypsy” and “classic folk rocker” the power, dynamics and nuanced control she has over her voice in this collection reveals those attributes and so much more; yearning ingénue, powerhouse vocalist and guitarist, even battle-scarred love-warrior.
