Mids Release Debut EP Wellness Check

Photo by CJ Rhodes

Featuring members of Dear Blanca, ET Anderson, and Niecy Blues, Mids meshes characteristics of each band, affording them the chance to expand past the confines of each of those acts stylistically.

The first time the Michael Crawford (drums), Cam Powell (bass), Dylan Dickerson (Vox), and Jon Warf (guitar) got together to jam it was to rehearse for a cover show. At New Brookland…

Aiken Bluegrass Festival

Aiken Bluegrass Festival

The Aiken Bluegrass Festival entered its 15th year with a bang. Headlining the festival was the legendary Del McCoury Band, who wowed attendees with a performance like none other that weekend. Members of the band grouped themselves around one microphone and crooned gorgeous tunes, which, even in bluegrass, is a rare and welcome sight.

What’s the first album you remember loving as a kid?

I had a few CDs on heavy rotation in my very early teens. Sugar Ray’s 14:59, Fatboy Slim’s You’ve Come A Long Way Baby, and Spin Doctors’ Pocket Full of Kryptonite.

What was the first album you bought with your own…

New Music: Kelly McLachlan-Steady Hands

Photo by Perrin Skinner

Over the last few years Kelly McLachlan’s lended vocals to a few of our Papa Jazz sessions in addition to her performing with her projects Boomtown Waifs, Post Timey String Band, and The Prairie Willows. At times her voice can be powerful, sometimes fun and quirky, and others blend in delicately all the while unique enough to stand-out amongst the rest.

Her debut single…

Get High Stay Dry A Look Back at High Water 2019

Going into High Water weekend I prepared myself for slight disappoint. I knew the festival atmosphere would be there, but the Shovels and Rope crew have set the bar pretty high with past lineups that have included The Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell, Band of Horses, The Shins, and Jeff Tweedy just to name a few. Could this year stack up?

Now in its third year I’ve watched High Water start out with…

The Witness Marks by The Witness Marks

I’ve thought a lot lately about music with a sense of locale. About the connection a listener makes with maybe an accent that sounds like home or an instrument that makes you feel an area. I’m often miffed when an artists tries to hide or change their roots instead of embrace them.

I contested this, noting that other years featured nearly 30 bands as well, and maybe 83 films was a high, but the years where Indie…
