Never one to confine himself musically to just one box – ARIA and 3x Golden Guitar nominee, Angus Gill – has shed yet another musical skin with his fourth album.

 

The project came about in late 2020, after the release of the critically acclaimed “3 Minute Movies” featuring Paul Kelly’s band billed as The Seasons of Change. Gill started laying the bed track down for a song Whittling Away, written with multiple Grammy™ winner & bluegrass icon Jim Lauderdale in 2019. This eventually became the catalyst for a bluegrass record.

Allison’s new album, Outside Child –– that draws water from the dark well of a violent past –– is her first solo offering, she also being a pivotal voice in two bands: Birds of Chicago and Our Native Daughters. And telling her own story sounds now to have made her free –– not from it all, but free within it: to reframe and reclaim her identity and its singular authority.

Mean Old Fireman &
The Cruel Engineers

Dumpster Fire

Art may imitate life, but without a doubt, life has shaped the music of slide guitarist/multi-instrumentalist, Ned Bollé. He brings his varied life experiences that are as diverse as his instrumental influences to this release and it features some of Boston's finest musicians.
