Bice records new CD
Thursday, April 8, 2010
– American Idol alum Bo Bice will release his third album, "3," on May 18 (Saguaro Road Records in association with Bice's Sugar Money Records). Soulful southern blues and rock, gospel-like choruses, Americana and a touch of country are part of the musical mix.
"I feel the new CD, '3,' is my strongest to date," he said, "filled with a plethora of sounds that show people who the real Bo Bice is."
"There's something for everyone; country, soul, rock & roll...it's like your favorite pair of jeans; it just feels right."
Bice wrote half of the songs himself and collaborated with other writers on the remainder, playing both acoustic and electric guitar during the recording sessions in his adopted hometown of Nashville. He was joined by Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman and keyboardist AJ Croce, whose father Jim has long been one of Bo's greatest songwriting influences. Bice also produced five of the songs with an additional six co-produced with D. Scott Miller.

This time out, Carlile performed fewer songs from that strong effort, which amounted to a more well-rounded live overview of her career to date.... »»»
Concert Review: Tuttle does well by coming home
Molly Tuttle has won kudos for her acoustic guitar playing. So much so that she's captured the IBMA award for Guitarist of the Year, the first female to win that acclaim from the bluegrass organization. But it's not so much Tuttle's guitar playing that stood out live.
Yes, that serves her well for sure. But it's more that her... »»»
