“Many male rock stars of the Sixties and Seventies have released memoirs, presenting their version of the time as one of debauchery, pleasure and sexual privilege. When the era’s women tell their stories, though, a darker side emerges. Coolidge tells of her musical success but also the indignities she and others suffered at the hands of some of the era’s greatest talents. Also intriguing — her claim that she was denied credit for writing one of the most recognizable musical passages in rock history, the piano coda to ‘Layla.’”—Larry Getlen


Quotes About The Artists

“To me, Rita Coolidge is a sound, that marvelous, kind of smoky, husky but pure sound and yes she has the hits…”
– David Finkle, Village Voice

“A strong literary element to Sam Baker’s work. Some of the most vivid, compelling, truly original songs of any artist working today.”
– Dan Forte, Consumer Guide Taylor Guitars

Jaron Freeman-Fox is a willfully eclectic and archly eccentric virtuoso Canadian fiddler, band and host of musos deliver clattering great world-jazz victory parade of a record with celtic and bluegrass roots. Guaranteed to enrapture…”
– fRoots

“At David Newman’s concert, the event’s volume knob seemed to go from low-level joy to full-on bliss, the kind you feel after climbing a gorgeous mountain or ending a tough run on a strong sprint.”
The Washington Post

 

Gretchen Peters is a precocious talent…she could sing anything put in front of her.”
– Belfast (UK) Telegraph

 “One of the biggest highlights of this year's Folk Alliance International Conference was discovering Ramy Essam. I first caught him doing an impromptu performance in the hallways of the Westin hotel with Kansas City artist Calvin Arsenia. Although both artists had just met, they played together beautifully. They mesmerized everyone that walked by and attracted a captive audience. Later, I caught the full band for his official performance that was both breathtaking and inspirational. His story of overcoming struggle and using music to protest oppression is extremely powerful.
Rhonda Lyne, Midwest Music Foundation

“Between their super-tight vocal harmonies, creative instrument choices, and lighthearted songwriting, The Spring Standards are a band that's really hard not to like.”
– Paste Magazine

 

Eliza Gilkyson is a politically minded, poetically gifted singer-songwriter…one of the most respected musicians in folk and Americana music circles.”
– The Classic Rock Examiner

"(Kaia) Kater is one of the most exciting roots musicians to come along in years."
—Matt Hendrickson, Garden & Gun

“There’s an earthiness to (Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally's music) that will almost make you think you are listening to some alternate cuts from a Carter Family session from the 1930s. The writing and the instrumentation are that much old-school sounding that it will no doubt take you back.”
Chuck Dauphin, Billboard, Music News Nashville

“What makes Marley’s Ghost’s music so remarkable is the way the band melds so many different influences into a cohesive sound–not Americana (an industry buzz word) but actual American music.”
— Icon Fetch
