The Runaway Kantele

The Runaway Kantele is the 2011 album by Finish progressive rock/folk artist Stani Steinbock.  This 23 track album features new music for the Finnish national instrument, the 5-string kantele plus assorted other instruments such as Violin, Cello, Krummhorn, Wurstfagott, Recorders, Dulcian, Guitars, Harmonium, Slide guitar, etc.  I enjoy hearing music from all over the world and this album had a totally different sound sometimes hard to describe what genre of music it is with such tracks as River Shore Song, Spruce Song, Winter Song, The Old Cat, Myllylampi (The mill pond), A Cat On Slippery Ice and so much more.  This album was well written, performed and recorded and is available on CD and digital download from Cd Baby, Itunes, and many other music outlets.  Thank you Stani for the opportunity to hear this album.

Tormented by Gary Wilson

Tormented is the latest album by legendary lipstick-smeared, mannequin kissing, rubber gloves wearing, ladies man Gary Wilson who invites you to take a tour of his broken heart on the new studio album released February 14, 2020, on the Cleopatra Records label.  This is my second review for this artist who I  describe his music to be a mixture of jazzy, electro-funk sound being true to his wacky self, pressing the boundaries of indie music and influencing artists in all genres with such tracks as The Sin Eater, The Merry Go Round, Gary Lives In The Twilight Zone, It’s Almost Midnight, Where Is Linda and much more.  This a totally different kind of sound with great songwriting, performance, and recording.  Tormented is available on CD and all digital platforms via Cleopatra Records, Amazon and many other outlets. Also, be sure to catch Gary on tour as direct support for indie rock rising star Part Time

Voyager At The Heliopause by Dr. Chrispy

Today I would like to present the latest single by the award-winning aeronautical engineer, music producer and songwriter Dr. Chrispy (AKA Dr. Chris Boshulzen).  His new single “VOYAGER AT THE HELIOPAUSE” will release online everywhere music is streamed and sold on June 14, 2019. The single is a tribute to the NASA Voyager spacecraft that launched in 1977 and returns stunning images from our solar system that inspired Chris to pursue his passion for space.  I found this song to be very relaxing with piano, electronic sound, and great background.  I was well performed, written and recorded.  Looking forward to hearing rest of the album when released.

The King Of Endicott by Gary Wilson

The King Of Endicott is the February 8, 2019 album by the legend of weirdo bedroom rock Gary Wilson on the Cleopatra Records label.  This experimental musician/performance artist goes back to his roots on his latest release which is named after the town that he grew up Endicott, New York.  This is Gary’s twelfth studio album and has a totally different sound than what I have heard before from any artist.  I describe this album to be a mixture of jazzy, electro-funk sound being true to his wacky self, pressing the boundaries of indie music and influencing artists in all genres with such tracks as The Town Of A Thousand Lights, Walking In The Rain Tonight, the title track The King Of Endicott, I Don’t Want To Be Alone, May Walked Away and much more.  This album was well written, recorded, produced and performed and is available for purchase on CD and digital download from Amazon, Itunes, Bandcamp, Cleopatra Records, and other outlets.  You can learn more about this artist at https://garywilsonmusic.bandcamp.com
