    Sarah Burton: a life of adventure and misfortune has made for a great 5th album

    Sarah Burton: a life of adventure and misfortune has made for a great 5th album

    Sarah Burton’s career started in 2006 with a broken heart, a broken down vehicle, and a haphazard tour across Canada in a van named Lucky -- an artist driven by adventure, spontaneity, and a desire to connect with people from all walks of life. Three Minivans, and several greyhound trips later, Sarah has played 200+ shows a year, released 4 albums and played festivals across North America. Rooted in folk, and skirting pop, rock and country – Sarah’s music is a collage of her own adventures and the people she meets along the way. Her songs have made their way to the big screen, earned college radio charting in US and Canada and commercial radio play in Canada and Europe. Now, after the bad breakup, two robberies, a few trips to the ER, and moving to the West Texas desert she has produced her fifth studio album, Give Me What I Want and it is a knockout.

    Alice Wallace's "The Blue" named One of the 10 Best Country Songs by Rolling Stone.

    "The Blue" by Southern California singer/songwriter Alice Wallace from her new album, Into the Blue, released on Rebelle Road Records, has been named one fo the 10 Best Country and Americana Songs to Hear Now - along with songs by Blake Sheldon.  That is pretty good national company for a woman who is is pure California country music. Her fourth album, Into the Blueharks back to the 70’s artists like Joni Mitchelle and Jackson Brown who did not have all the answers but knew how to sing the questions.  Folky, romantic, soulful, and always melodic, Alice is eclectic Americana, organic, probing but understanding and often topical. Winner of an LA MUSIC CRITIC Award, Alice has performed at LA’s legendary country venue the Palomino Club,  as well as many others in her average 200-gigs year. The album marks her debut on the brand-new Rebelle Road label, an imprint founded by a trio of women dedicated to strengthening the California Country music community and expanding visibility for female artists in the Americana/roots genre. The song, is pure gold, as Rolling Stone reminds us.

    And, theirrepressible Trevor Douglas will drop in to let us know about new shows and new music.
