David Massey – Darkness At Dawn
David Massey’s latest offering, a 7 song EP, “Darkness At Dawn”, includes 2 scorching political rockers as well as haunting reflections on climate change and religion and, of all things, a tender and optimistic wedding song. His mix of folk, rock, blues and bluegrass songs have wowed reviewers, as FolkWorld noted in 2019, “this Washington DC artist still hasn’t made his breakthrough, though each of his albums has been critically acclaimed”.

Fou Parle – Sentimentalsjukhuset
Sometimes Fou Parle is compered to Swedish singer and songwriter Lars Winnerbäck. That is an accusation he happily takes, “Being compared to him isn’t the worst thing, even though I sounded like Winnerbäck long before he sounded like Ulf Lundell”. “Sentmentalsjukhuset” is Fou Parle’s solo debut. More information at Hemifran.
Suzie Vinnick – Fall Back Home
“Fall Back Home” reaffirms Suzie Vinnick’s mastery of a wide range of musical styles. The gospel tinged positive anthem “Lift You Up” fits seamlessly alongside the rockin’ blues of “Salt & Pepper” and the gentle folk roots ballads “City & Skies” and “Talk To Me”, and the album is given consistentcy via the emotional eloquence of Suzie’s songwriting and her strong, warm vocals.
