From Chicago comes the debut EP from singer/songwriter Kristina Cottone. Her new release titled "Bow," features Kristina's jazzy, soulful vocals as they sink into your mind. She begins her new release with the mellow, laid-back strumming guitar of "Bad To Me," which allows Kristina to work in a little scat-singing. The energy picks up with the pop/rock of "BFF" and the sultry, R&B movement of "Boston Boy." Her new short EP closes with her strong, soulful vocals leading the way during the title-song "Bow."

Connecticut's own roots/Americana band, The Rivergods recently released their latest studio album titled "State Of The Union." The album is a celebration of the band's 20th anniversary and continues to feature the singing/songwriting duo of Ben and Nancy Parent. Their new 12-release begins with the up-beat folk/rock of "Jubilee" and the Americana-pop of "New Emperors," which is very addictive with its heart-warming melodies. They deliver a classic country sound with "It's Up To You," before diving into the waltz of "Churches." Nancy's vocals give extra emotion to the soothing ballad "Station Down The Line," before they bring up the southern rock groove of "Ratchet." They finish their new album with the memorable chorus of "Lost On You" and the six-plus minute jam of "State Of The Union."
