Independent Artist Sue Merchant Releases Classic Folk Album Fool


London, England--August 14, 2006--UK based Sue Merchant is a product of her environment. While living in the South West of England, she received plenty of exposure to music and poetry through her father. That turned out to be a good influence as a lifetime of love for the arts found its place and meaning through a culmination of 10 tracks on her new release Fool.

Sue Merchant is a self-professed poet with a guitar, as many people in folk music are. Legendary performers inspire most artists that find themselves driven to succeed and Sue is no exception. She has found motivation and insight into her craft through legendary performers such as Joni Mitchell, Melanie, Joan Baez, and others cut from the same cloth.

The new release Fool is destined to receive accolades from the media sector and most importantly from current listeners eager to listen, which in turn will create awareness in a large potential audience waiting to discover her distinct art form. The album is already shaping up like an independent release that is sure to be a classic of the genre. In her own typically humble opinion, the title track is the best she has ever written and certainly, those that are familiar with the essence of folk music will agree. It comes as no surprise that it recently won 1st place honors in the UK Songwriting Contest for the Folk/Country genre.

Collectively the album is a montage of gut level feelings, emotions, and real life situations expressed intelligently through well thought out lyrics via beautiful melodies and rhythms. Sue has an atmospheric vocal style that has an uncanny way of bringing the words to life, which brings the message home effectively to the listener.

Fool is a shot, straight from the heart from an artist that pulls no punches. The CD is on Bandit Records and available to sample and purchase on the Sue Merchant website or CD Baby.

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…
