I’ve got to report some sad news today that might bother a few of you, the band The Hotshot Freight Train are unfortunately calling it quits but they are going out with a BANG! That’s right, the band has recorded a 12 song final album and have released it today through all digital networks. The album is also available on a very limited edition CD which you can purchase here (limited to 100). I remember working with a few of these guys when they were in a band called Joey’s Loss. Ever since I first heard their Ep I’ve been a fan. I’ve followed their career closely over the past 10 years through all the peaks and valleys and I can say without a doubt that their last album and this new one are the band’s best material. Let this album serve as a fitting reminder of the power of independent music and the songwriting from seasoned veterans. If you’re a new fan, enjoy this album and make sure to look up their past discography. RIP THSFT, you’ll be missed. Listen to a stream of their album below. Continued →

Continuing their union of melancholy and redemption, the album is consistent from start to finish. Blending the traditional singer-songwriter template with contemporary sensibilities, it may be a modern classic. So if you’re sick of today’s mainstream music, Medicine is the perfect remedy.

This is a transcript of a phone interview I had over digital coffee today with CCM singer-songwriter Ellie Holcomb. The 30 minute conversation includes topics such as her album As Sure as the Sun, her involvement with Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors, potential collaboration with Jon Foreman, touring plans, a relatively-unknown side project, and her thoughts on streaming services.

I’m very sorry to not have heard The Tale of a Broken Compass in 2013, because I want all the more time to digest what I’ve heard, and it would have undoubtedly made it on my Best Of list.

Orion Walsh has covered an old song by his former band and a “local” band for me called Three for Flinching. Eddie Spangler the lead singer of Three for Flinching, passed away a few years ago and Orion recorded this song as tribute. I knew Eddie and spoke with him several times years ago when I was putting I’m Your Biggest Fan Vol. 2 together (which Three for Flinching was on) and booking shows around So. Cal. He was also a member of Dogwood during their “Seismic” days. I had no idea he had passed until just today after Orion emailed me. You can stream the song “Struggle to Recover” originally by the band Three for Flinching, below. RIP Eddie. (Original song posted below) Continued →
