Julian Taylor

The Ridge


we will start out by saying that this is a beautiful album from start to finish, it’s deeply personal at times and relates memories of Taylor’s childhood and, in places, his journey in his early years into music with tracks like ‘The Ridge‘ and ‘Ballad Of A Young Troubadour‘. It must have taken a great deal of emotional thought and outpouring to have created such beautifully crafted images for us to share in the experiences, that’s what great songwriters do, and Taylor is indeed a great songwriter, arranger and producer, having co produced this album with Saam Hashemi, who engineered and mastered at the iconic Woodshed recording studio.

Adam Karch

Everything Can Change


Although Adam Karch is from Montreal, his music embodies the spirit of Americana like a scenic ride across the country. He plays a hybrid acoustic blues that consists of precise fingerpicking that recalls players such as Chet Atkins and Kelly Joe Phelps, along with an innovative percussive technique that is thoroughly modern, while somehow primal and anchored in tradition.
