Arriving on January 26th is the latest release titled "With All Its Thorns" from Laura Benitez and the Heartache. The 11-songs that make up this new collection are based on Laura's experiences of love and heartbreak. The album begins with the up-tempo, country appeal of "Something Better Than A Broken Heart" and the emotional ballad "Easier Things To Do" as Laura's vocals will just melt your heart. The band's country western sound will have you swinging your partner during "Whiskey Makes Me Love You," and the honky-tonk rhythm of "The Foot I Am Right Now" is the perfect backdrop for Laura's voice. They wrap up their new release with the Cajun flair of "Secrets" and the country/bluegrass combo "Nora Went Down The Mountain."

From South Carolina comes the latest release from singer/songwriter Trevor Hall. His latest album titled "The Fruitful Darkness" draws upon his reggae influences like Jimmy Cliff and Bob Marley and combines them with the storytelling pop acoustics of Michael Franti and Jack Johnson. Hall divided his new release into two parts, part one begins with the steady drum beat and sweet island acoustics of "What I Know" as you will easily get drawn into his relaxed, laid-back sound. He incorporates a pop beat into the uplifting chorus of "My Heart, Your Heart" in order to give his music a more modern feel. Part two continues with the pop tones of "Moon/Sun" as the tempo begins to pick up, before Trevor Hall finishes up his new 6-song EP with the addictive reggae beats of "Wander."
