Eric Hutchinson | House Of Blues (Sunset) | 4/29/14

  Eric Hutchinson is an American, singer-songwriter whose folksy, tenor voice; witty, lyrical writing; and humorous onstage banter always entertains me. I may be a bit biased though (full disclosure) as one of the first albums I really took the legal, paperwork reigns on was his breakthrough independent album “Sounds Like This” … that, and I consistently beat his fantasy basketball teams back when we all … Read More Eric Hutchinson | House Of Blues (Sunset) | 4/29/14

Cody ChesnuTT | The Troubadour | 3/30/14

  On March 30, 2014, Cody ChesnuTT restored my faith in R&B music. Over a decade ago, I first learned about Cody ChesnuTT  when he was featured on The Roots cover of his own recording titled “The Seed.” I made a mental note then to keep an ear out for more music from him, but for whatever reason, his music and my ears just didn’t cross paths. … Read More Cody ChesnuTT | The Troubadour | 3/30/14

Valerie June | Wiltern Theater | 3/25/14

One of my favorite albums of 2013 was Valerie June’s “Pushin’ Against A Stone”. Produced by Kevin Agunas and Dan Auerbach (the Black Keys), it was album that caught my ear with its seamless mix of roots, blues and folk sung by a voice that seemed to have decades of earnest life lessons behind it. Valerie June’s voice is unique. It’s a voice that you can’t confuse … Read More Valerie June | Wiltern Theater | 3/25/14
