Lisas – Etiam
On the 3rd of February 2023, the duo LISAS will release their 2nd album, “Etiam”, an album made despite the pandemic and biblical floods in the studio that were about to destroy all the recordings. Fortunately, much could be saved and from the ashes the sequel “Etiam” has been allowed to emerge during a period of reflection. The interaction has intensified and the curiosity about each other’s musical influences has resulted in eleven new compositions that intertwine folk music, baroque, tango and contemporary art music. “Etiam” is an album that has all the potential to also reach new listeners both in Sweden and abroad, where LISAS has already received a very good response for previous album releases and live performances in the USA and Europe, among others.

Crosby Tyler – Don´t Call The Law On Me!
It’s been a long time (eight years actually) since we last heard from Crosby Tyler, one of those American artists who really delve into the roots of Americana – folk, blues, country and all points in between. He’s come across as a hobo, a blue collar singer songwriter and a veritable one man band on previous releases and worked with the likes of Peter Case and Nickel Creek. Don’t Call The Law On Me
(featuring Aubrey Richmond (Shooter Jennings) – fiddle, back-up vocals, Jeff Turmes (Mavis Staples) – bass, Dale Daniel (Hacienda Bros) – drums, Mike Khalil-pedal steel, electric guitar, Kimbra West – back-up vocals) is described by Tyler as “Involving more pedal steel and Telecaster guitars — my most countryish album to date”
citing influences such as Buck Owens, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, David Allan Coe, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Todd Snyder, Robert Earl Keen and Shel Silverstein. Quite a list but, sure enough, Tyler pulls them all together for what is an engaging, rough and ready listen.. More information at Hemifran.
