New label, new concept

Cradle of Filth’s latest concept album explores new territory

By Alan Sculley
'I was struggling with the whole idea about what to do the whole album about,' Filth says. 'And then one night I sat down with the nucleus of the album, the sort of starting block of about three or four songs, and played them back to back.

Career change

Amos Lee’s success as a musician almost never happened

By Alan Sculley

Stepping outside the country box

Radio execs frozen by PC, stingy country fans all in a day’s work for Phil Vassar

By Alan Sculley
The tune tells the tale of a guy who is a small town everyday Joe during the work week but shows up one evening at a nightclub dressed as a woman. While clearly meant to be an over-the-top, funny song, country radio was skittish about sharing in the joke.

Country soul

Lucero brings in help to fight genre labels

By Alan Sculley
When we started we got lumped in with the alt-country stuff, Nichols says. And for sure theres a Southern accent to what we do, and I think thats the main reason. And were not offended by being included with that genre, but I think from the very beginning there was always something else in there.

One last show

Dave Matthews Band visits Colorado

By Alan Sculley
But Matthews says the fact that he and his bandmates drummer Carter Beauford, violin player Boyd Tinsley and bassist Stefan Lessard will go their separate ways next year is actually a sign of how positive things have gotten in the Dave Matthews Band.

Still protesting

Joan Baez still wants change

By Alan Sculley
"I knew I would no longer be embarrassed by our president. I think its just odd for me, feeling that the cohesiveness that we needed in the world at that moment turned out was a black candidate for president, not a songwriter, not somebody from the street, not a Martin Luther King, but a man running for office."

For second CD, Mute Math had to restart from scratch

By Alan Sculley
"Some songs are more challenging than others," singer/guitarist Paul Meany says in a recent phone interview. "True to a Mute Math record, we definitely did not consider how we were going to be doing this live as we were recording it," he says. But it paid off.

Citizen Cope has flitted from label to label and now has his own

By Alan Sculley
Yet, he is in the enviable position of being an artist that can tour large clubs and theaters and, as his current tour attests, sell out multiple nights in cities like Boston and Philadelphia. To Cope, his ever-expanding popularity is largely the result of having created a sound that is uniquely his with a message that feels authentic and honest.
