Moon: Frank Brown Foundation For Music is serious about music education

June 27, 2017

Part of the dream is to someday show my songs at the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival some November.

That’s why I picked up the guitar in my 50s — to showcase the simple songs sprouting in my head. We’ve got a little group going. We’ve even got a band name — the Ian Fuller Experience — and a first album title, “Halfway to Greatness.” I have a few totally inappropriate and scandalous songs ready — “Waxing Trauma,” “Death Ray” and “Family Tree” — as well as my work-in-progress song-cycle about young love in North Korea, featuring future favorites such as “My Juche Girl” and ”State Approved Haircut No. 7 (You Look So Fine With).”

Karen says in her bio that the artists who have influenced her music include Alanis Morissette, Ingrid Michaelson, Sheryl Crow, Jewel, Otis Redding and Janis Joplin. I detetected a hint of a young Dolly Parton, with an (from her website) “in-your-face” style of country music. She’s across the USA and Europe… her stage presence mesmerizes her audiences; often receiving standing ovations.

Gregg Allman died on Saturday. He was 69. One of the pioneers of southern rock and one of the greatest blues singers ever, one of the founding member of the Allman Brothers Band will always be remembered for the influence he’s had on popular music. And that influence could definitely be felt Saturday at the Wharf Amphitheater in Orange Beach when The Charlie Daniels Band and Alabama played an almost-sold out show under the stars.

Charlie Daniels reflects on career before Orange Beach show wth Alabma | The Sun Herald

May 27, 2017

There’s no slowing down for Charlie Daniels, who turned 80 in 2016. Sure, he’ll tell you he’s only “playing about 100 shows” this year as opposed to 200, but he also released a new album last year and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. He also works tirelessly for veterans’ groups and their families. And he’s just published his first book, “Never Look at the Empty Seats.”

Mobile band Paw Paw’s Medicine Cabinet to release two debut albums | AL.com

May 26, 2017

Southern rock’s identity is finally opening up.

What once felt like a genre too timid to fall into infatuations with electronic and synthetic elements, is now a flirtatious little something, ready to tease just about whoever comes near. The result is an enchanting and intoxicating new beat that feels well-traveled, experienced and mature.
