I'm a writer and music journalist originally from Salt Lake City, but now living in Scotland. I was a Punk/Goth in the '80s and these artistic influences have stayed with me; although a love of Chopin, chamber music, and Spanish guitar would seem to belie this. I am one of many assistant music editors at Blogcritics.org, staff writer for a gay men's magazine based in Edinburgh, and a freelance writer.
I believe you make your own treasure and light in life.
Let's be kind and not mention Lisa-Marie Presley...
He may have begun life as the privileged son of an internationally acclaimed rock star, but Crosby is no spoiled wannabe.
This track makes me crave one of those bodice ripping, pushed-up-against-the-wall, scratching-your-back, screaming...
Down-to-earth, playful, witty, and occasionally profound, grounded but sentimental, sensual but intelligent, romantic but only in passing. A superb album.
With hints of alt-country nostalgia, and swimming in acoustic melodies...
Intelligent, witty, and upbeat, Sage managed to be engaging and whimsical while always maintaining a professional demeanour.
With summer on its way, this one is full of summery pop craziness.
Every word seems perfectly placed, meticulously considered for it's brevity and weight, and yet you never feel overawed or confounded.
A lush, mellifluous album, that feels like a deeply personal, but entirely comfortable glimpse into the hearts and minds of a happily married couple.
