Dog Ears Music: Born in February Playlist
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Melody GardotJazz chanteuse and songwriter Melody Gardot's clarity and reserve is something to take in. Born in New Jersey in 1985 and raised in Philadelphia, she tracked her path of music starting at the age of 9. Piano and fashion studies were interrupted at 19, as Gardot was hit by a car whilst riding her bicycle, and left for dead on the side of the road. During the arduous months of recovery, music became her healer and her third hand. The injurious trauma left her sensitive to noise and light, yet ever resilient. The Grammy-nominated songbird's highlights include the VSA International Young Soloists Award, featured tracks for the film An Education, and a batch of releases to date. Her gentle voice is a soaring force. "Worrisome Heart," from her 2006 release Worrisome Heart, is pure grade-A.

Conversations with Gary Numan, Katey Sagal and Los Lobos' Steve Berlin, Plus a Shelby Lynne Exclusive
Huffington Post - over 3 years
A Conversation with Gary Numan Mike Ragogna: Gary, when you look at what's going on in dance and industrial music, it seems like you're having the last laugh here. Gary Numan: [laughs] There is a lot of electronic music around and it seems to be having some kind of--I'm not sure if "renaissance" is quite the right word, but it does seem to be everywhere at the moment, which is a very good thing. But in a strange way, I don't feel that electronic music is "my thing." I know it's what I've done all my life, but I still feel slightly removed from it somehow. But I think it's good for music in general. The one thing that I have noticed, which I wouldn't say I'm "disappointed" by, but I am surprised by, one of the reasons I got into electronic music and why I've stayed a part of it for so long is that I've always seen it as the most forward-looking of all the genres. Its reason for being is to come up with new sounds and use technology to keep pushing forward. That's what makes it exciti ...

CRITIC'S NOTEBOOK; Old Songs Revisited By Voices Of Today
NYTimes - about 13 years
ONE way to draw the map of popular music in the new millennium would be to divide the world into two volatile, interacting territories. One, the world of pop for grown-ups, is a land of song where the sunsets are dramatic and the pace is leisurely. The other, younger world is a defiant nation under a groove, a fast-food franchise in which tornado

FILM: 'BETTER OFF DEAD'

SAVAGE STEVE HOLLAND, who is 25 and grew up in Greenwich, Conn., isn't as funny as his name.

Fewer of them last much longer than that, since sustained humor doesn't seem to be what interests Mr. Holland; his

POP/JAZZ; A HOEDOWN FROM BRITAIN MIXING FOLK AND CLASSICAL
NYTimes - about 32 years
THE freewheeling eclecticism that has been labeled world music comes in as many shapes and sizes as there are musicians who care to refine their favorite sounds into personal signatures. One of the most likable and eccentric cross-fertilizations of the last decade has been the blend of the folkloric and the classical created by the Penguin Cafe
