Ted Russell Kamp – Night Owl

Ted Russell Kamp’s first track, the Will Hoge co-write, “Smile Alone” sets the mood of Night Owl with its Levon Helm meets Eric Clapton in ’72 feel. It seems that the Laurel Canyon mythos rings true throughout this Americana set. This is definitely California desert country with the top down. “Right DownThe Wire” even has a little George Harrison inspired melodic slide. Night Owl can hang on the turntable with Robbie Robertson, The Eagles as well as modern Americana poets like Ray Wylie Hubbard, Hayes Carll or Ryan Bingham with his…

10 Things You Might Not Know About Lynyrd Skynyrd

If you were to use one word to describe southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd, “resilience” is what first comes to mind for me. A plane crash in 1977 which took the lives of singer Ronnie Van Zant and guitarist Steve Gaines put an abrupt end to the band’s initial line-up.

The band recently released Last of a Dyin’ Breed, their thirteenth studio album. Here we’re listing…

Sunnie Haeger – Pieces In The Dark

Several years ago, my ex-wife said she was jealous because I tended to “fall in love with chick singers.” If that is the case, then I’m ready to settle down for a long-term relationship with California-based Sunnie Haegar after listening to her new CD, Pieces In The Dark. From the opening track through to the 12th song on the CD, I am enjoying the music of Sunnie. What I find interesting is the blending of styles on the album. Normally, I see that…
