Tyler Lyle - The Golden Age & The Silver God (2012)
What a find this was. A truly indie CD (he has his own label), Tyler has created a blend of music that somewhere between Mumford and David Grey. But labels and comparisons aren’t fair. I love the melodies and arrangments; the personal nature of the songs. It’s a great spin. Please check him out at http://www.tylerlyle.com .
Patty Griffin - American Kid (2013)
When is Patty never in top form. Another outstanding CD from the person Bruce Cockburn once called “An American Treasure”. Dedicated to her late father, this CD feels familiar, but might best be described as an obvious follow up musically to “Children Running Through”. If you are a big fan of Patty’s, you will not be disappointed. If you are new to her music, you will find a lot to love about this beautiful, down to earth CD.
