11 Questions to a Nashville Musician: Lilly Hiatt

Lilly Hiatt doesn’t hide the fact that she is the daughter of the great singer-songwriter John Hiatt. In fact, I have been lucky to see her open a few local shows for her Dad. Currently, the young Nashville songstress is making a major splash with her latest record, Trinity Lane, produced by Michael Trent of […]

11 Questions to a Nashville Musician: Chuck Mead

The city of Nashville should thank its lucky stars that Chuck Mead came to town. For if it wasn’t for he and his band BR5-49’s residency at Robert’s Western Wear in the 90’s, Lower Broadway would likely not have become the honky-tonk capital of the known universe. The band got so hot that David Letterman […]

Micky Dolenz @ City Winery / Nashville TN / June 18, 2017

I have always considered The Monkees’ Micky Dolenz to be one of pop/rock’s all-time greatest vocalists. Whether sitting behind the drum kit or standing center stage, Micky has always been a consistently great singer with a strong, smooth, steady voice.

Loudon Wainwright III @ City Winery / Nashville, TN / April 23, 2017

Loudon Wainwright III is one of a handful of artists that I have seen on stage in five different decades. He also is one of those rare performers with whom spending time in a small room like Nashville’s City Winery is more like visiting an old friend that paying to hear some stranger sing songs. […]

David Bromberg Quintet @ City Winery / Nashville, TN / March 10, 2017

Over the years, one thing I’ve learned after seeing David Bromberg perform live many times, is not to expect to hear any of my favorite songs. Popularity has never been a prerequisite for a song to make it on David’s set list. Sorry, did I say set list? That’s something you will also never see […]

Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman / Schermerhorn Symphony Center / Nashville, TN / November 7, 2016

If you are looking for an in-depth analysis of this show by a die-hard Yes fan, you won’t be getting one here. One thing I’ve learned about music blogging, is that the less the writer knows about the band, the more he is likely to write about himself. So that’s my opening apology. I loved […]
