Curtis Harding, ‘Where We Are’ – Single Review

The American shared a new track ahead of a European tour, in his first appearance since the critically acclaimed ‘Face Your Fear’. ‘Where We Are’ is another piece of music suitable for the soundtrack of the next James Bond film, a style Harding is an expert at and that has done so much good for him.

Aaron Lee Tasjan, ‘Karma For Cheap’ – Album Review

Following Drivin’ N’ Cryin’s Kevn Kinney’s advice, Aaron Lee Tasjan released last month a new album – his eighth so far – that is nowhere near the same formula used in his previous one.
