“Old fashioned and new fashioned, simultaneously” is what it says on their facebook.  I saw these guys play at the Fort Worth’s Fourth Fesival yesterday and I have to say that they could quickly become one of my favorite bands.  The style is funky, jazzy, bluesy all at the same time.  It definitely has a bit of an older feel to it.

  Alright first of all, I will admit I bought this album for only one song, but after having this album for about 2 months I have completely fallen in love with it.  The old school sound and honky tonk grooves are like butter to the ears.  “OK Whiskey” is the sole reason I bought [...]

Image from rawhideandvelvet.com I’ve been dreading writing a review for a female artist for awhile. Something about being able to relate my thoughts to a female point of view had made me hesitant. Charla Corn is a different story. For years now, Charla has been making excellent music that both males and females can relate [...]

Deep-hearted lyrics sang through a gritty voice almost make you believe your sitting in a smokey bar watching a live act rather than just merely listening to an album. Green’s newest album “Rose Queen” is packed with eleven songs about love made and lost as well as [...]

  Photo from http://richotoole.bigcartel.com/product/brightwork-cd-pre-order My first memory of Rich O’Toole is a faint one.
