From Nashville comes the latest album from country singer/songwriter Andrew Adkins titled "Glass Castles." It features thirteen songs soaked in classic Americana, blues and country music filled with great lyrics and steady rhythms. Beginning with the swing of "Freeborn Heart," Andrew's voice has a familiarity to it that attracts you to his sound. He introduces a bluegrass texture to "The River In All Of Us" and showcases his influence of The Band on the folk/rock story of "The Ballad Of Wayne WV." The great build-up of "Consisting Of Love" shows the true potential in Andrew's songwriting as the feeling of hope swells within the song's delivery. He seems to have the most fun when he quickens the pace as in the up-tempo fun of "Old Coal Town" and "Jubilee (Land Of The Free)."

Californian singer/songwriter Sarah Petrella recently released her
latest EP titled "Seasons." She mixes in elements of country and rock
with her folk-style songwriting to create these epic sounding songs. The
new five-song album begins with the powerfully intense rock number
"Dancing With The Devil" as Sarah puts everything into her performance.
She pulls back the reigns a bit on the country acoustic strumming of
"What Am I Waiting For" with subtle hints of banjo to give the song its
spark and then struts her stuff on the explosive chorus of "Change." The
album's lead single "Mr. Mystery" shows off Sarah's sweet side with her
innocent sounding vocals that swell up in this new folk/rock gem that
needs to be uncovered. Check out her video for the single on YouTube. To find out more about Sarah Petrella and her latest release "Seasons," please visit sarahpetrella.com.
From Canada comes the sophomore release from rising teen rock
singer/songwriter Sophia Radisch titled "Beautiful Sin." The album was
produced by former Megadeth guitarist Glen Drover, who also appears on
the album along with fellow ex-Megadeth member Shawn Drover on drums. It
features 13 soulful rock songs, beginning with the beautiful, smooth
acoustic strumming of "Come Around," before getting bluesier on the
harder edged "Closed Doors." The tempo picks up on the alternative
rocker "Give Me A Soul" and the fun power pop/rock feel of "Hot
Blooded." Her sweet, soulful voice shines on "Saint" and swings on the
rock ballad "Shiver," before closing with the steady delivery of "Sweet
Injustice." To find out more about Sophia Radisch and her latest album

back in October and is quickly rising up the ranks to country
superstardom. Jade pours her all into the country rock of "This Love
Ain't Big Enough" and adds an extra sultry swing to "Lies Of The
Lonely," but her heart and soul is felt in the gentle delivery of
"Stronger Than Me." Jade will be touring Canada beginning January 23rd.
