Steven Graves – All Alone

One of the most powerful and influential qualities of popular music is its capacity to reach deep into the human heart and consciousness, reflecting upon, responding to, and lighting the way for society, especially in these turbulent times. Steven Graves’ 9th CD “All Alone” has that quality. More information at Hemifran.

Eiwor Kjellberg Band – Stand Out

Eiwor Kjellberg is a national fiddler from Järvsö and her 3rd album “Stand Out” is music from Hälsingland’s bluest forests and deep ponds, dense masculine interplay so into the bomb swinging, dancing sweaty and with a nerve of fine fragility so the neck hair slowly rises.
