Jeff White’s album Right Beside You is a collection of bluegrass material flavored with a little country and folk. Jeff, a bluegrass flatpicking guitarist, brings not only his pickin’ style into the spotlight, but also shares his notable vocal and songwriting skills.

The Cannondolls is comprised of Caitlin Cannon and Kate Willyard on vocals and Alissa Wolf on fiddle. These three talented ladies combine their creative forces to fashion a diverse Americana project.

Chet O’Keefe’s CD, Because Of You is an Americana treasure. This singer/songwriter’s smoky vocals are flavored with folk and blues influences. He is a clever storyteller and masterful interpreter of songs. Chet’s skills glitter on this project, but shine especially bright on “Blue Martin” and “Because Of You.” Chet O’Keefe is an artist who creates “outside the box,” which allows him to construct authentic and impassioned music.
 
 
Auburn • Love & Promises 4 StarsAuburn • Love & Promises
www.auburn.org.uk

The band, Auburn has captured lead singer, Liz Lenten’s sultry blues style on their latest album, Love & Promises. All twelve songs on the project were written by Liz, except “If Everyone Was Listening” which she co-wrote with Mark “Gus” Gustavina. The depth of emotion Liz conveys with each single word is fascinating especially on “Miss You Blues” and the title cut, “Love & Promises.”
 
 
Felicia DiVine 4 StarsFelicia DiVine • No! I'm Not A Stripper


Felicia DiVine’s album, No! I’m Not A Stripper, is an unconventional project. This edgy, rock flavored CD, begins rockin’ with “Domestic Engineer” and rolls into “Act Like A Man,” both high spirited numbers and ends with the gritty “Sparta, I’m Coming Home To You.” A fiery performance by Felicia DeVine gives this project originality and spunk.
