Over. I've written some songs. I play them live. I record them. Some haven't been awesome. Some I still really like. http://lnk.ms/YHnfR Biografie If I weren't playing music, I would be not as happy, but I'd probably be a killer bartender/landscape designer/cat whisperer. I play bejewelled too much, and it makes me angry because I should have spent that time reading a book. My favorite wine region this year is the Pacific Northwest, and I have retired my Gin fan club membership for Wisconsin and Minnesota-made Vodka. Grammar is important to me, but I am not always perfect. I have a foul mouth. I am trying hard to be more polite, but when I'm nervous, I swear. I'd really like to open for Tom Petty one day, sing with K.D. Lang, take my parents on a vacation, do more charitable work, and play the guitar better. --- New Album "VOYAGEUR" out now. Voyageur is less of a departure than it is a journey, and like any transforming trip, it demands that we let go of any preconceptions about the destination. These songs are the perfect travel companions to their own haunted landscape. Edwards guides us through a house full of empty rooms, revealing the sadness behind a public smile and the numbness that follows broken expectations and the casual cruelties of love, until we find ourselves softly drifting down to hell with her. And yet, this isn't a bummer ride at all — it's elevating. The Romantic poet William Wordsworth said that poetry is born in "emotion recollected in tranquility," and Voyageur evokes a spectrum of overwhelming feelings within the atmosphere of a lucid dream. Edward's characters speak to the grief, loneliness, shock, and confusion that come with endings as well as the hope and irrepressible joy that accompany new beginnings, but the stories are told with a seductively quiet strength. The album celebrates the many pleasures of survival and reinvention, suggesting that an acceptance of life's changeability is what will allow us to face the hardest of hard times — as well as the exhilarating longing and dislocation of the unknown — head on, with grace. - Written by Damian Rogers.

Biography "I went following the footsteps of a friendship that ended in Chicago." Steve Dawson sings this ambiguous, evocative line on Dolly Varden's sixth and latest studio album, For a While, and we wonder: Did the footsteps or the friendship end in Chicago — or both? This much we know is true: Steve, born in California and raised in Idaho before studying music in Boston, moved to Chicago in 1987, formed the band Stump the Host with his soon-to-be-wife Diane Christiansen the following year and, after that band's demise, launched Dolly Varden with Diane in 1994. Dolly Varden is a type of trout found in the Pacific Northwest, and the fish was named after a character in Charles Dickens' novel Barnaby Rudge. So now you know. For 18 years Dolly Varden has been wowing and charming audiences with the warm, sublime interplay of Steve's and Diane's voices (yes, they're still married); the emotional potency, intelligence and undeniable melodicism of Steve's songwriting; and the supple backing of supremely versatile guitarist Mark Balletto and the limber rhythm section of bassist Mike Bradburn and drummer Matt Thobe as the band encompasses rock, folk, country and R&B/gospel influences to create something solely its own. From the 1995 debut, Mouthful of Lies, through The Dumbest Magnets (2000) and The Panic Bell (2007), Dolly Varden has built a sizable, loyal fan base, and now listeners new and old can reap the considerable rewards of For a While. It's an album that feels like it couldn't have been created at any other point in the band's history. Recorded and mixed by Steve at Kernel Sound Emporium in Chicago and produced by the band, For a While finds Dolly Varden occupied with the passage of time, diving into lifetimes of memories to make better sense of today. From the delicate opening reflections of "Del Mar, 1976" ("I don't remember her name, but I remember her well"), to the Diane-sung transience-themed title track to the generations-spanning ballad "Saskatchewan to Chicago" to the album's centerpiece, the achingly gorgeous "Mayfly" ("We are lucky, and I must not forget"), Dawson and the band demonstrate that time has had only a positive effect on their artistry. Dawson's songwriting has gained in depth and observational powers while his voice has never sounded richer or more expressive. And the rest of the band is with him every step of the way, whether tightening the screws on the taut rocker "Done (Done)," creating the eerie outer-space-garage vibe of "Temperamental Complement," splashing a hymn-like beauty over "Girl in a Well" and "Favorite Friend" or reveling in the joyful pop of the closing "Thank You." Some aspects of life may be fleeting, but the pleasures of For a While will be everlasting — and for that we are lucky.

Biography Listen Up to Caitlin Rose! Caitlin Rose is back with a new studio album, the follow up to her critically acclaimed debut, Own Side Now. The album introduces a newfound confidence in Rose, the poise of an experienced songwriter and the fierce gumption that goes all the way down to her bluely soul. This sense of self-assurance is woven throughout twelve carefully crafted songs with the timeless sound and witty approach to lyricism that has become her signature. Incorporating classic influences from her Nashville roots with a modern pop twist, Caitlin?s vocals soar over lyrics that seem to possess the wisdom of an old soul. Crafted with Nashville producers Jordan Lehning and Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle), featuring two songs co-written with Gary Louris (The Jayhawks), The Stand-In (ATO) came together and took form as a team effort, strengthened by a longtime friendship with band mates Jeremy Fetzer and Spencer Cullum. Inspired by classic country musicians, misunderstandings, break ups, mystical landmarks and the constantly evolving landscape of the Nashville music scene, The Stand-In is an ambitious record, a testament to Rose?s bold approach and strength as a songwriter. With a trademark punch that the New York Times once likened to a young "Patsy Cline learning to howl", Rose?s fiery disposition shines through on rollicking tracks like "No One To Call" and "Waitin?," songs that possess a huge sound and a whole lot of character. Never the type to be one-dimensional, Rose wears her heart on her sleeve on candid serenades like "I Was Cruel" and sentimental ballads like "Pink Champagne" or "When I?m Gone." And in true form, Rose includes a brilliant cover on The Stand-In, this time of The Felice Brothers? single, "Dallas."
