Major events happening throughout the history of the world, they have always been a constant font of inspiration for artists in any sort of art form, no matter about their cause or the time when said events took place. It is almost like a part of our spirituality get either hugely enriched or wounded, by the consequences of those extraordinary moments, urging an artist to express the emotive impact that such events brought into his/her own world in their own, unique way.


This may be as well the emotional route that brought the Irish Guitar Maestro, Producer and Musical Director Gerry Leonard, to release, under his pseudonym Spooky Ghost, after almost 18 years, the follow-up to an inspired record like 2002's The Light Machine.

It's perhaps the most difficult time, in the history of the world, for a music artist to work on new songs and to find the necessary energy and inspiration to be able to lift their creativity to the next level.


Detroit's Powerhouse singer/songwriter Eliza Neals, following the unanimous, huge appreciation coming from fans and music press all over the world, about the 2017 album 10.000 Feet Below and, most recently, for the 2019 Sweet Or Mean EP, must have been feeling surely very eager and excited to release her self-produced and arranged brand new record, called Black Crow Moan.

There are not many music genres in the world able to translate, solely through the power of an instrument, the complete array of emotions of an artist as much as Jazz or Avant-Garde are able to.

Since their very beginning, both genres have always allowed total freedom of expression to a music artist without being forced to use spoken words, but relying uniquely on an instrument, like the piano, in the case of the Japanese-born Award-winning Jazz/Improvisation artist Naoko Sakata, to paint a sonic picture of moods, feelings and states of mind of a musician.

In the history of music, there have been so many Unsung Heroes, artists that have worked behind the scenes of some of the most important records worldwide for so many years and never been recognized themselves as artists in their own rights.


In 2020, it is almost impossible to find an unsung Music Hero of such an artistic depth bigger than the American pianist and composer Mike Garson, with 60 years in the music business and a career-span that, to define impressive, it wouldn't be out of context at all.

Making Art, it is all about allowing an artist expressing his or her freedom of expression through different forms and shapes, sometimes using different tools, so to be able to free the artist's creativity even in a more multi-faceted way.


What mentioned above, it sums up pretty much the artistic path followed by the Spanish film-maker and Singer/Songwriter Fany De La Chica, through her debut album just released, called Dressed For A Sunday.

A live album is always a cornerstone, for an artist, no matter the genre played. It is that moment of vocal and sonic catharsis where an artist can get back to the core of his/her artistry and liberate that freedom of expression that constitutes the artistic essence of every respectable musician.


Blues/Rock Powerhouse Albert Castiglia, therefore, couldn't choose a better, more clear title for his new live album, called Wild And Free, a record where Castiglia unleashes completely his musicianship and mirrors accurately one of the highest points of the Florida-based artist's career to date.

For a band formed back in 2007, L.A. based Folk/Roots collective Dustbowl Revival doesn't seem to lose any musical ground at all, as the years go by but instead, their brand new album recently released and called Is It You, Is It Me, it displays a band willing to experiment different layers of sounds accompanied by lyrics of strong impact, imaginative and emotional at the same time.


To those readers that may be not fully aware of the artistic quality and the background of this formidable sextet, Dustbowl Revival is a band that has brought their music to many countries around the globe, touring for more than 200 days every year, sharing stages with some of the most important artists of this generation, like Wilco and Mavis Staples, just to mention a few.
