Just like every other year, picking the highlights of a jam-packed Newport Folk Festival is a difficult task because each performance usually has at least one. Given that the schedule is filled with conflicts, it is nearly impossible to see them all. The four of us – Ben, Darren, Dina, and our latest addition Adam – will attempt to do […]

The Mega, Mega Playlist of 2015

The Mega, Mega Playlist of 2015

Over the past year, we’ve listened to thousands of singles – way too many to count. Throughout the year, we’ve shared many of them through three regular features – The Melodic Tonic, The Matinee, and The Weekend Showcase. While we could have rolled up all those singles into one mammoth playlist, that would have meant a playlist of nearly 1,500 songs, not to […]

Jason Isbell – Something More Than Free

Jason Isbell – Something More Than Free

Jason Isbell has come a long way in a relatively short period of time. It was not too long ago that Isbell was part of Drive-By Truckers and penning now classic songs like “Outfit”.  In this song, Isbell cites some words of wisdom like “call home on your sister’s birthday” and “have fun and stay away from the needle”.  Isbell […]

Mundo 15 – Fifteen “Must Follow” Artists on Social Media

For musicians, it’s a great way to not only promote themselves but a means to share their thoughts and […]

Mundo Musique: My Shaky Knees Festival Experience

Mundo Musique: Jason Isbell, “Traveling Alone”

Mundo Musique: Jason Isbell, “Traveling Alone”

When I travel for work, like I am right now, I often travel alone.  After the meetings are over, it can be a lonely place.  Often, I’m just too tired to get out to see the town, or I have an early morning departure home so I’m stuck at the hotel.  The room is quiet and there isn’t the warm […]
