Arriving this summer is the sophomore release from the acoustic folk trio, The Furious Seasons. Their new album titled "Now Residing Abroad" features 13-tracks of relaxed melodies and wonderful harmonizing, beginning with soft, jazzy shuffle of "Expo Line." The Furious Seasons continue their new album with the storied, folk-tale of "So Sorry Adele" and the beautiful vocals of "Easy To Find" as their sound will put your mind at ease. The poetry of the lyrics highlights the short story of "Whatnot," before the Americana feel of "Fort Knox" stirs up emotions with the trio's passionate delivery. They finish up their new album with the gentle, nostalgic tones of "Airtight," the quiet pop structure of "Status Quo" and the vocal plea of "Come To LA."

Next, from Australia comes the latest release from singer/songwriter Gus McKay titled "Talisman." His influences range from early sixties Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green to the Texas blues of ZZ Top. His new album begins with the quiet, acoustic build-up of "Art Of Living" as he delivers a swampy blues sound. He picks the energy up with the horn-infused groove of "Fallen Down" and the soulful style of "Hundred Acres." Gus picks his way through the backwoods, country blues of "Piawaning Suit," then delivers the acoustic folk-storied blues of "The Man" and "Murchison Sequel," before closing his new album with the stark, personal recollection of the "Last Dance."

From Colorado, comes the latest release from folk/country artist Gerry Spehar titled "Anger Management." The album is politically charged, as displayed in the opening track "Thank You Donald." The music has a nostalgic, bluegrass appeal as Gerry thanks the president from waking him up from his "political coma." He continues with the blues of "Son Of An Immigrant," which quietly battles prejudice, before delivering the swampy, slide guitar work of "Anger Management." Gerry showcases his folk troubadour side with the storied, acoustic ballad "A Soldier' Spiritual" and "Barrier Reef." He finishes up his new album with the Latin flair of the steady rocker "Greed" and the wonderful talking, acoustic folk/blues of "What Would Jesus Do?"
