By on January 9, 2013



Thanks to everyone for their support of the independent Americana records in 2012!  Here’s to 2013 and continued great releases



Out Today (January 8):
Jesse and Noah Driven Back

Driven Back is a gritty blues scorcher with ample amounts of guitar mettle and enough sass to knock Robert Cray on his ass.”–AbsolutePunk

“This is just one great disc…There is a grace in the arrangements and playing that allows the music to breathe and drives each word and note home with point.”–Mid TN Music

Driven Back is an eclectic mix of Americana, Roots-Rock, Country and Power pop led by the powerful vocals of Jesse Bellamy. The songs are heartfelt and powerful. Well delivered and colorful.”–Jedi Gro

Ted Russell Kamp  Night Owl

“Modesty and an unwillingness to play games likely prevent Kamp from getting the acclaim he deserves (seriously, where are his Americana Music Association awards?), so don’t let the heartfelt, soulful music suffusing Night Owl pass you by.”–Michael Toland, The Big Takeover

“This is definitely California desert country with the top down…Night Owl is a part of the continuum from when Graham Parsons made California home and helped start a movement that still goes on today with the new country sounds coming out of the west coast.”–Music News Nashville




Rich Mahan Blame Bobby Bare

Blame Bobby Bare should be listened to just a little more on the loud side. The two other elements that might enhance the listening experience are a boatload of beer and a bottle of tequila. The songs are upbeat and the lyrics are witty and to the point. I liked the story behind the album title and rather than spoil it, I think I’ll let you pick up the CD on your own to find out what I’m talking about. You can’t listen to this music and not put a smile on your face”–Americana Gazette

“Bless Bobby Bare! Well, always bless him, but this time specifically bless him for inspiring this fun, well-crafted, countrified outsider Opry music album. And while you’re at it, blame and bless David Allan Coe, Vince Gill, Shel Silverstein, Kinky Friedman, and even Jimmy Buffett. I love you Mahan!”–Chicago’s Roctober Magazine
