CD Review: New Music From Singer/Songwriters Art Schop And Jeremy Nash

Singer, songwriter, writer, philosopher Martin Walker recently released his new album under the name Art Schop. The new release titled "Death Waits 1" was inspired by the works of David Bowie, Lou Reed, Will Oldham, Richard Wagner, Michelangelo and others. Most of the album is performed only by Art Schop with the help of producer Jimi Zhivago. The new ten song release begins with a direct homage to David Bowie's "Space Oddity" as Art Schop performs "Back To Earth" with an inspired desire to create a unique piece of music. His song "The Prince Of Darkness" was inspired by the story of Don Carlo Gesualdo killing his wife and lover as the music has a gentle tone that keeps you glued to his storied lyrics. He expands his sound on the eight-minute "The Sun Deceives" inspired by Richard Wagner's opera "Tristan Und Isolde" and then he sounds like Roger Waters on the ballad "Just A Lombard Cat." The album finishes with his poetry delivery of "The Thistle And The Thorn" and the gentle touch of "Insubstantial Man."

Singer/songwriter Jeremy Nash returns with his follow-up album "Getaway Driver." It's a blend of great guitar hooks and storied lyrics highlighted by a great pace of songs that will keep you wanting more. The new eleven-song release begins with the title-song "Getaway Driver" as Nash paints a picture in your mind of traveling down the road to new adventures. He lays down a country vibe for "Waiting For The Fall" and "One Of These Days" and sandwiched between is"Killin' It In California" about long-distance relationships. He sticks with the gentle folk acoustics of "Everything Is As It Seems" and the Paul Simon inspired "So Long, So Long." He plugs his guitar back in to close the album in classic fashion with the Sun Records sound of "It's All Gone Now." To find out more about Jeremy Nash, please visit
