Interview With American Artist Jim Lauderdale | @JimLauderdaleOfficial

Jim Lauderdale is a genuine American artist that has deep roots in country, bluegrass and Americana music and felt the call of being a singer and musician from a very early age.  It was evident he was destined for a musician’s life.  I had the pleasure of discussing his upbringing in music, the development of his own label and his new single, ‘I Love You More’ off his new album, ‘London Southern’. As your parents were both singers, was it a natural progression that you would sing as well? Yes, I think it was.  There was a lot of...

An Interview With Pete Williams (Formerly of DEXY’S) | @petewilliamsmusic

Interviewing Pete Williams, previously of Dexy’s Midnight Runners, is undeniably cool.  His knowledge and talent coupled with his longevity in the music industry make such occurrences rare and cherished.  He, as a solo artist, along with his band, have enjoyed great successes such as being the special guests of The Proclaimers during their recent 32-date sold out UK tour, having Richard Hawley of Pulp on guitar for the first solo album and singer Imelda May including one of his songs in her set and declaring lovingly her support for Pete.  I chatted with him about finding his place in...

Concert Review: Lucy Spraggan at The Junction in Cambridge | @lspraggan

With just keyboard accompaniment and her two acoustic guitars she alternated between, she never faltered on her performance.  Not once.  Surrounded by beautiful blue light, her music came across true and clear with a...

Concert Review: Lauren Ray at The Junction in Cambridge | @laurenraymusic

Listening to Lauren Ray is like experiencing a knowing, warm breeze that lends a great deal of atmosphere.  Her music washes over you and you feel slightly more grounded and able after experiencing her songs live.  And, I did experience just that response following her set at The Junction in Cambridge recently as she tours with Lucy Spraggan. Lauren performed alone with just her keyboard framed in a beautiful pink smokey light, singing songs from her debut album.  She presented a simple, pared back and relaxed backdrop with her keyboard that established the backbone for her lyrical and poetic...

Interview with Megan O’Neill | @meganoneillmusic

Americana singer Megan O’Neill recently appeared during Country Music Week in London and she took time to discuss her origins in country music, her solo album and how she finds the burgeoning and talented country scene here in the UK. How did you come into the country/Americana music scene?  Was it a natural progression/choice for you? I suppose it was quite a natural progression for me. I grew up listening to Country & Americana music and the lyrics were always the most important part of the song for me – telling a story. So, I suppose I naturally gravitated...
