Benny Bassett: Words for Yesterday

Benny Bassett: Words for Yesterday

Acoustic rocker Benny Bassett’s second EP, Words for Yesterday, opens with the mid-tempo richly produced “Window To Forever.” It’s obvious the listener could easily be taken by the melody and Bassett’s fine voice, float right by the salient lyric this man mines on this opening tune of poignant apology.

Steve Hackett: At The Edge Of Light

Steve Hackett: At The Edge Of Light

Steve Hackett is at it again. With his 26th studio album At The Edge Of Light the ex-Genesis guitarist (and 26 albums in, should we even have to mention Genesis anymore?) this master-of-the-Les-Paul brings listeners flavors from all over the world, fantastic players and some genuinely stunning songs.

Kevin Thomas Band: A New Heart

Kevin Thomas Band: A New Heart

The press for this release claims that the San Diego, California-based singer-songwriter Thomas has started a new chapter with the release of A New Heart. Whatever is happening in his life, it is reflected here in a very solid release.

David Browning: Now You See Me

David Browning: Now You See Me

Canadian ‘modern pop artist,’ David Browning’s Now You, See Me is a wonderful lush release of modern romance, played, produced, sung and written impeccably. You need to ‘see’ this CD.

Anne Steele: Made out of Stars

Anne Steele: Made out of Stars

“Love Can Take Is There (2019 Nash Overstreet Remix),” and the softer (and last) song “Love Can Take Us There (Acoustic Version)” are two drastically different versions of Steele’s obvious big single. I like Steele’s big clear range on both, with the acoustic take mining a slight country vibe from what Overstreet manages on guitar.

Mark Peters and the Dark Band: Sum of All Parts

Mark Peters and the Dark Band: Sum of All Parts

Singer/songwriter stuff can get really boring for me. Yes, we all have something to say, but sometimes the execution of such introspection leaves me wanting; how many times have I merely said: “alright already, can you just rock me a little?” Mark Peters and The Dark Band delivers good solid tunes, by an obvious good songwriter, leaving the listener to want to hear more.

Damon Mitchell: Elise

Damon Mitchell: Elise

Elise reveals lots of range, color and smarts and with a whole bunch of great players helping, Damon Mitchell is spot on with this EP.
