"Check out the EP’s lead track, the Lee Hazelwood inspired, spaced-out, LA cowboy Americana of Sha La La (Fadeaway)"-- The Mad Mackerel

 "The lead single off their latest EP Husbands, "When Smiling CC Frowns", is an elegant baroque pop number that incorporates an artful composition of strings and a familiar, yet still evocative jangly melody."-
-The Deli NYC

"Beverly Hills Blues" video premiere for American Songwriter:
Jesse Brewster is in the midst of an 18 date tour of the western states in support of his upcoming record, March of Tracks.  This Wednesday August 6th he will open for Americana artist, Valerie June  at the Filling Station in Bozeman MT.

"Jesse hits subjects that range from soul bearing to good old-fashioned story telling, and his vocal work is also innovative without losing any emotion in the process of doing things a bit differently. ..“Make Or Break” is a very strong song with great hooks that can match up with anything on commercial radio these days. I am glad I delved deeper in because he is about so much more than that. “--Music Morsels
Indie folk artist, Noah Hall & Whiskey Priest officially releases Almost Satisfied.  ---"And you thought only early Leonard Cohen records were the soundtrack about relationships and the wasted energy they create?...Indie popper turned shoe gaze folkie, ( Noah Hall & Whiskey Priest)  hits the nail on the head..."--MIDWEST RECORD
Michael-Ann has just returned from a (west) Central Coast tour where she was promoting her upcoming record, (August 19th) Heavy Load. She will be returning to the Central Coast in late August and has just announced that she will be opening for Eddie Money @ The Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, CA on November 7th, 2014

Robert Oermann, Music Row--"This L.A. singer-songwriter emotes beautifully on the title tune of her CD. Her moaning alto breaks in all the right places while dobro, fiddle and her own acoustic guitar drawl along in a bluesy river of sound. The rest of the album proves this track isn't a fluke: These are all first-rate songs. Extremely promising."

Hilary Scott unveils her new video for the song, "Flowers on Mars" and gears up for the release of her upcoming record with Belltown Records, Freight Train Love. (November 2014)

 “Hilary Scott writes and sings in a way that creates a fascinating and intimate world, and it is enough for her to utilize only a whisper to raise deep emotions in the listener. Her voice is absolutely extraordinary in its emotional greatness…it would be difficult for her pop/country style not to enter deep into the heart, in every way.”—Euro Ferrari (Producer: Bjork, Sting, Pavarotti)

Steven Casper & Cowboy Angst kick-off their campaign for the new EP, Endless Sky--a blend of blues, country, folk, and rock and roll with a whole lot of swamp thrown in.  Charity and Linda McCrary (The McCrary Sisters) are featured on backing vocals!
