The dynamic blues music duo of Diana Braithwaite and Chris Whiteley once again apply their winning formula of writing new original songs deeply rooted in the Blues music traditions of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s on this, their 4th release on the Electro-Fi label, Scrap Metal Blues. Multi-Instrumentalist Chris Whiteley has recorded and performed with Leon Redbone, Lonnie Johnson and John Hammond. Vocalist Diana Braithwaite has appeared on the Lilith Fair Tour as well as with Albert Collins. Supported by a world class band, the 13 story/songs on the disc are a memorable selection. Diana’s heartfelt tribute to her late father, Scrap Metal Blues will resonate deeply with anyone who has lost a parent. Insightful, upbeat and plain funky, this is their strongest release to date.
In late 2010 The Other Brothers had a new lineup that had been together since basically right after the album release. Gabe Hensley, lead vocalist; Kyle Keith lead guitarist; Recently returned to town Nate Hensley on bass; the incredibly talented vocalist, song writer, and drummer Dan Mohler on drums; and locally legendary saxophonist Dave Clark, came together to form the best squad the band had yet known. They decided it was time to get back in the studio and take their time creating an epic album that would accurately express The Other Brother’s true artistic form. Something that would expose not only the band’s abilities towards song writing and composition, but the historical magnitude of the artistic struggles and conquests encountered along the outfit’s path.
Oly Mountain Boys return with their second studio album, Through The Sky. Based on songs developed over the previous two years of live performance, the album contains 10 original compositions and two Bill Monroe classics. Through The Sky was recorded at Circle of Sound Studios in Olympia, Washington, and ups the ante in every respect from the band’s well-received, self-titled debut in 2010.
Using nothing but the six traditional bluegrass instruments, the album nonetheless shifts seamlessly between an astonishing diversity of original material — from the high-octane bluegrass of “Slipping Past” and “Losing Altitude” to the Celtic balladry of “Ann-Marie” to the country-tinged “Day They Froze Over Hell” to the bluegrass gospel of “The Master Plan” to the indie-tinged “dreamgrass” of the title track — never losing sight of the Father of Bluegrass himself, honoring Bill Monroe’s Centennial with two of his timeless tunes, “Little Georgia Rose” and “Close By.”

There’s something about the Australian music scene which seems incredibly earnest and dispenses with convention, and it’s what makes this review such a tough one to write. Joel Sarakula, now based in London, hasn’t fallen into the trap of producing what he’s told, or what can sell the most off the back of the latest […]
