CD Review: New Music From Singer/Songwriters Peter Rowan And Chris Price

American bluegrass/folk artist Peter Rowan recently released his new studio album "My, Aloha!" on May 5th. It features the musical legend taking a trip to Hawaii to record the region-specific album using local instruments. With a storied career like Peter Rowan, this album is a nice gentle break that allows you fall in love with, slowly. His new 11-song release begins with the light-hearted love story of "My Blue Hula Girl." He tells us some wonderful stories as in "Jerry In The Deep Blue Sea" and "My Aloha (Appalachian Mountain Home)." He uses his famous yodeling technique during the gentle sway of "Lotus Flower" and "Tsuki-Chan" as the music simply melts your troubles away. He finishes his new album with the beautiful melody of "A Man Of Time And Tides" and the undeniable folk masterpiece "Sunny At Sunrise (Reprise)."

Singer/songwriter Chris Price is returning after a five year absence to release his sophomore solo album "Stop Talking." Recorded over a 3 year period, Price has been busy producing albums and performing in Tal Wiklenfeld's band, who open for The Who. Now Chris Price is concentrating on his solo career with his new 14-song release. He begins with the addictive pop/rock chords of "Stop Talking" and showcases how he's developed his songwriting on the gentle acoustics of "Hi Lo." The folk style of "Father To The Man" is the perfect setting for his warm vocals, which leads to the wonderful harmonies of "You And Me (And Everyone Else)." He plugs in for the burst of space-rock with "Algebra In The Sky," then captures the seventies soft rock with "Darkness." He finishes up his new album with the pop tones of "One Of Them" and the gentle folk delivery of "Anhedonia." To find out more about Chris Price and his latest release "Stop Talking," please visit
