Eleanor Fye, "Love Stays On"

Eleanor Fye
Love Stays On

Music websites across the internet recommend Eleanor Fye for the listener who likes Sara Barellies or Norah Jones, but both singer/songwriters could take a page out of Fye's book and make better albums in the future. Fye has a beautiful voice, a smart, witty way of writing, and has created an album that will lift you up while still giving you something to think about.

Robert Hurst, "Bob Ya Head"

When I saw that Robert Hurst's newest album was called Bob Ya Head, I assumed it would be a hip-hop album that would make me shake my head in a disgruntled way. I was wrong, however, because I spent my time listening to the album bobbing my head, tapping my feet and thoroughly enjoying it.

Jeff Cochell, "Between The Lines"

Between the Lines

There's something comforting about a musician as talented as Jeff Cochell. It's almost as if his obvious gift at playing the guitar makes listening to his debut album, Between the Lines, all the more pleasurable. The only downfall is that the lyrics and vocals aren't quite up to par with the musicianship found on the album.
