By Mike O’Cull

Ana Cristina Cash makes singer-songwriter magic on her latest full-length effort Shine, which was released by Avondale Records on April 24th, 2020.

She’s a clear and confident vocalist with an emotive tone that meshes well with the sharply-written lyrics she conveys here. Cash wrote or co-wrote 12 of the 14 songs on Shine and shows a talent [Read More]

By Chris Wheatley

Shredding, wailing guitar, monstrous, clawing riffs which rear and howl; the opening three minutes and forty-seven seconds of Eric Steckel’s new album Grandview Drive roar in celebration of the power and spirit of rock music. It is a slab of pounding rhythm with subtly swinging drums, assured, rough-edged vocals and to finish, a lingering burnout of beautifully orchestrated noise. The album is set to release May 15, 2020.

It is no understatement to describe guitarist Eric Steckel as a [Read More]

For such a talented artist, solo releases have been comparatively few, which makes new album Magnificent Heart an especially welcome release. From the opening seconds of the record, it is clear that this is a musician steeped in the blues, and the blues, perhaps more than any other genre, is [Read More]
