Innocent Road – Caleb Klauder & Reeb Willms
If there’s one thing that the city of Portland, Oregon has taught the rest of the world, it’s the value of making your own path, and that lesson is at the heart of Portland country singers Caleb Klauder & Reeb Willms’ music. Their new album, Innocent Road, features fourteen original and rare country songs delivered with the kind of easy authenticity that comes from deep immersion in the tradition. Innocent Road is grassy honky-tonk gold.
Don’t Be Afraid – Tami Neilson
We had the privilege of experiencing Kiwicana country soul powerhouse Tami Neilson perform at AmericanaFest last week and it was utterly amazing. Her latest album, Don’t Be Afraid, celebrating the life of her beloved late father, is available in our neck of the woods today, and it’s not to be missed. You’re welcome in advance.
