Long time coming...

All in blogger land you most forgive me. I have gotten terrible with keeping up to speed with this thing. I do believe it's been two months since my last post so here comes some more music recommendations.

My Favorite Highway: Beautiful, melodic keyboard-based power pop. Somewhere along the lines of Something Corporate. If this band doesn't become huge, there is something extremely wrong with the state of music these days. Probably one of my highest recommendations in the year 2007.

Derek Webb: He once fronted Caedmon's Call and is now going at it solo, as he has been for some years now. Though the music is heavily Christian/spiritual in certain songs, others are beautiful mediations on life, love, and the pursuit of happiness. He has a vibe about him that can resonate with almost anybody, and I urge anybody that likes acoustic-based music to give him a whirl. For a limited time you can obtain his latest album for free at

Kelley Stoltz: This guy is definitely more for the indie crowd but as far as modern singer/songwriters go, this dude has the retro, 70's vibe down pat. Absolutely stellar music. Gets your blood pumpin', and your feet moving. Highly recommended.

Between The Trees: This band goes for the same vibe My Favorite Highway presents, only it kicks a little more. I also expect big things out of this. I'd say fans of the Goo Goo Dolls or Matchbox Twenty will find a lot to like from this band. Very good stuff.

Patrick Ryan Clark: It's hard to describe this dude. It's soulful Texas acoustic pop/rock. It's accessible in the way that a mashup of John Mayer, Graham Colton and Jesse McCartney might be. Yeah, that's a good way to describe this dude.

5 for now. More to come soon.
