Ron Sexsmith sticks to what he does best which is brilliant pop laden pop songs produced on his acoustic guitar
Frightened Rabbit – Scotish band sticks to what it does best which is emotional pop laden indie rock songs ruminating on relationships and the search for identity
Holly Williams – Puts together her first record as an independent artist and creates heartfelt country/folk and ruminates on relationships and drinking. It’s my way or the highway. Sounds like a perfect country album to me. She gets vocal assistance from Jackson Browne, Jakob Dylan, Dierks Bentley, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
