Thanks to this submission I actually read a book this summer! The book is called "A Love Like Texas Weather." This book is a classic American love story based in Austin TX. Very good read, love the Shadow Queen. "The Rock Opera" is the album that accompanied this book. I am glad I read the book first because guess what, it's a musical and the book is the play and the album is the music! Between the book and the album my imagination put together a glourious musical in and about Austin. I would love to see this show. I have been to Austin and everyone I met was nice. There definitely is a magic about Austin and this musical production by Franky and the Band encapsulates that magic. I love musicals and this is another one to add to my list of favorites. The music is upbeat, uplifting with beautiful vocals and composition. A must check out for musical and Austin fans! For more info please visit https://www.frankyandtheband.com.

I really enjoyed this album. I love how Saran involved Ladysmith Black Mambazo into the album. Ladysmith Black Mambazo are a South African male choral group singing in the vocal styles of isicathamiya and mbube. Super awesome sounding. The whole album is uplifting, positive and refreshing. Saran's vocals are beautiful and on point. This album also features well known artist such as Carlos Santana and Narada Michael Walden. I definatley recommend taking a listen. This album was released July 7, 2017. For more information on Jennifer Saran and the album Wake Up please visit jennifersaran.com.

Well what can I say but that I was excited to get a album from Mississippi. My favorite song on this album is "Get it off the vine!" Its a old time rock n roll song about home grown tomatoes! Who writes songs about home grown tomatoes? This band and it ROCKS! This is a great duo out of Mississippi that compliments each other well. This album is a good mixture of folky bluesy rocky music. Love the harmonica in "Macon." Pick your copy up, learn more about the band or listen here.

Today I had the pleasure to hear Mick Wynne's Debut E.P. "World of Mick." The EP kicks of with "Fooled by You" a upbeat bluesy song with some nice slide guitar and female back up vocals. "Love of my Woman" the following song has a good foot tapping melody. I like the unique drum sequence in this song as well as the lead guitar. My favorite song on this EP is the last song "You are the Message." This song is a rockin, funky, psychedelic dance song. I love it! Love the conga drum! All in all this is a great EP. This EP was released May of 2017 and you can find it here. Please visit Mick's website for more info here and check out his video below!
