We start this segment of music off with the Bellingham, Washington based duo of Laura Raveis and Dennis Kole with their take on the John Prine classic. This new cover retains the spirit of the original while adding some fresh musical ideas to the the song. A great way to start this week.
E2TG and East Nashville favorite Andrew Leahey and his band have been steadily releasing new music for much of 2020, and they are back with yet another fantastic song.
Last week, we had a new single from 2018 E2TG Artist of the Year, now he is back with his brand new album - The Troth Sessions. The Chicago physician turned award-winning folk singer has been garnering some well-deserved National attention. As I felt, when I made him Artist of the Year withing the first year I my having "discovered his music" (an award typically reserved for artists who have been on my radar for some time), Krueger is something special, and this new album just locks that concept into my mind.
Next up, we have a remake of The Mission's classic song - from the second regular studio album. Here the song is performed by The Mission front man Wayne Hussey along with member of The Cure, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Slowdive, Bauhaus / Love and Rockets, The Smiths, The Twilight Sad, Depeche Mode, The Cult, The Wonder Stuff, Gary Numan, Evi Vine, Midge Ure (Ultravox), Spear of Destiny / Theatre Of Hate, Beauty In Chaos, The Soft Cavalry, All About Eve, Guns N' Roses, Nine Inch Nails and Gene Loves Jezebel. The maxi-single is being released in support of front-line workers in the fight against COVID-19.
We close this segment of music with a new song from this singer-songwriter originally from Texas but now based in Oregon. Jacob Wallace is currently an internationl travelling minister who is spearheading building a house of prayer in Orgeon. This song was written around a campfire in Oregon.
