Some friends living in Edna, TX inspired the song written over 30 years ago while I was living in Houston. Janet Parish selectively augmented my backup vocals…a job well done…many thanks Janet!

The song’s title was taken from a road sign in Fort Worth, TX that I passed everyday going to work…the rest…well…it is what it is…guess I was feeling a little lost the day I wrote it. We got Janet Parish to do the backup vocals for us who did a bang-up job.

Neon Lights, Lisa’s stunning sophomore album, burns with the grit-filled, heartfelt sounds of that process. The moods and tales within are as frank and richly varied as the life of their earthy-voiced creator: The disc’s 11 built-to-last songs are typified by such offerings as “You Got Your Freedom,” a rough-edged, blues-rocking kiss-off to a departing ex-lover, and “Once I Leave LA,” a sobering meditation on the thoughts of a desperate friend set to a bittersweet waltz. And then there’s the title track, an image-rich, gospel-tinged narrative that cashes in on the singer’s observations from her years as a professional poker player.
Comprised of cousins Summer Collins (15, vocals and guitar) and Isaac Ball (20, violin), Summerfield is an astonishing modern country-pop duo that, in barely a year, has won legions of fervent fans stretching from the pair’s Fayetteville, North Carolina, home to as far away as Russia and Europe. But, being close relatives, Summerfield’s roots naturally go back farther than the act’s official beginnings.
Passion, drive, and great writing – these adjectives define the music and life of Susan Cattaneo. Growing up on a farm in New Jersey but spending her summers on an Arizona ranch, moved easily between the energy and electricity of the East Coast and the wide open spaces and campfire stories of the West.
This is something Renée Wahl seems to have realized instinctively from an early age. As an alternative country/Americana/Rockabilly artist, Wahl has followed a non-traditional path to a career in music, and yet no one who has known her over the years would ever question her destination. Wahl enrolled in the musical theater program at Staten Island’s Wagner College only to find college life mundane. Finding her way to Philadelphia, Wahl became a regular on the local Indie music scene. After a stint in the US Air Force, where Wahl served first as a flight specialist and later as a physicist and educator, she returned to music. Eventually making her way to Nashville, Wahl’s affable personal style helped her network with some of the brightest lights on Music Row. This combined with her natural talents as a singer and a songwriter have Wahl poised on the verge of widespread name recognition.
For Greg Susoreny, it’s been a long time coming. His debut as a songwriter and recording artist is the fulfillment of a genuine passion carried in his heart over several years. While his arrival in music comes after starting several businesses in other industries, he is not ending something; he’s just getting started. With the sharp contemplation and adult contemporary/country sound that defines his music, time spent listening to Greg feels like talking over beers with Kenny Cheseny and Don Henley. All insight, and no hangover.
Mike Stout is a socially conscious singer song-writer and community leader. He leads crusades against local and global economic injustice, rallying people with his music to take action. His sound and lyrics are influenced by his musical heroes Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, Jackson Browne and Bruce Cockburn.
I grew up on a small farm not too far from Johannesburg, South Africa to a family railed against the horrors of Apartheid. Skipping over my school years (they weren’t really all that exciting) and the political upheaval (I was raised for freedom so it came as no shock to me) I found myself in Boston, MA in 1999. I was pretty young and utterly in love with jazz. I was desperate to be a great jazz guitarist but the problem with that is no one really cares anymore about jazz guitarists and I was never that good anyhow.
