Peter Mayer : Awake

To celebrate the arrival of my first Peter Mayer CD (Million Year Mind) in the mail earlier today,

here’s a live version of his song Awake (not on that CD). It’s a fine, lovely and thoughtful song with some mighty fine guitar work.

Lauren Hoffman : Let The Mystery Be

This is ‘just’ a living room/kitchen home recording, and a splendid one at that. Her voice is excellent, and so’s the song. Written by Greg Brown’s wife Iris Dement, and covered by Brown on his most recent studio album Freak Flag this version sounds entirely different and decidedly non-countryish. I love it a lot.I listend to Lauren Hoffman and her then-band September 67 in the late 1990’s, so it’s been quite a while, but she’s definitely still got a lot of talent and is using it in her current band The Secret Storm.

The Pines : Where Something Wild Still Grows

This is an unofficial video I found on YouTube to celebrate the arrival of my copy of The Pines’ latest, splendid album Above The Prairie (released early February 2016). More info and my review of the album to follow in the next few weeks. In the meantime, all that’s left for me to say is: Enjoy.
