THREE guys... TWO high schools (now two colleges)... ONE shared love of music.  Josh Morris and James Paolano met Zane Agnew at a Fourth of July celebration at Crandall Park in Glens Falls.  The rest they say, is history. 

Kenny Wayne Shepherd The Traveler
Artist

"We're all fellow travelers in this thing called life," asserts Kenny Wayne Shepherd. "We're all human beings and we're all really just trying to get through this thing one day at a time the best way we know how." 

Indeed, the Louisiana native has covered a lot of ground in his near-quarter-century career, and Shepherd's new album of ten songs feature some of the most distinctive and resonant muisc of his career.

Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard will release her first-ever solo album later this summer.

Johnathan Rice rolled in the door and right away I knew I was going to enjoy chatting with him. He arrived as a party of one, with merch in a carry-on bag in one hand, and a guitar case in the other. Normally there's a manager, a sound person, or label folk shepherding. But this time, it was just Rice and a rental car touring the Northeast.

Jack White of The White Stripes, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler, known to fans as The Raconteurs, have carved out a spot as one of rock's most formidable supergroups. In 2006, the band's album Broken Boy Soldiers was nominated for a Grammy for best rock album. But what was once just a side project for everyone is back more than a decade later.
