There are eternal questions that beg for answers. Why is the sky blue? Why does gravity always pull down? What is a record producer? Okay, in my line of work, I can answer the first two but it has taken years of listening to records and making acquaintances to get a handle on the […]
Brianna Lane made a rare second day performance on the Singing Hills stage. While it is not unusual for an artist to appear on both stages over the PMMF weekend, Lane was the first artist I can remember playing the Singing Hills Stage twice. In the top half of the inning (Friday) at the […]
Our two Australian keyboard playing buddies have been putting out some fine music. If you take a little time to check out both Clayton and Lachey’s YouTube entries, you will find some great festival performances.
