Larry Jon Wilson “Larry Jon Wilson” Drag City

I’d never heard of Larry Jon Wilson before. I can’t comment on his four Monument releases from the second half of the 1970’s. They were a little before my time, and no one had ever pointed me in his direction. After hearing this new, self-titled release, I may have to track down those albums. Given […]

Her sassy, seductive tone rolls through her rhythms, naturally ebbing and flowing with the song’s tide. Peck’s sharp, edgy sound has been placed in the foreground of a pop-vibed band, making for an upbeat […]

Josh Gracin at Central Michigan University

By Lisa Kiser Turn it UP! Although the temperature was -10 outside, the heat was on as Michigan native Josh Gracin returned home to Central Michigan University to shatter the stillness of winter. Gracin is one of the most underrated performers in country today, so I was excited to spend the evening with a crowd […]
