Singer/songwriter Keith Morris was inspired by the work of the legendary Leonard Cohen so much that he included two of Cohen's classic tunes on his new album "Psychopaths & Sycophants." The album kicks off with Morris' rendition of Cohen's song "The Future" as he quickens the pace a bit. The album continues with the wonderful melodic tones of "What Happened To Your Party" as Morris' backing band, The Crooked Numbers give him a solid foundation for his poetic lyrics. Out comes the blues of the title song "Psychopaths & Sycophants" as Keith Morris & The Crooked Numbers slink their way through the song. The band finally rocks out on "67%," before closing their new nine-song release with a 7-minute version of Leonard Cohen's "In My Secret Life" as you can feel the passion and emotion in Morris' vocal delivery.

We also are catching up with singer/songwriter Mark Rogers, who released an album of new material last year titled "Rearranged." His new six-song release begins with the country/folk strumming of "Right Here" as you are easily wrapped up in storied lyrics and warming vocals. Next, he delivers the laid-back, approach of "Slow Parade" and "Waiting," before closing his new release with the gentle folk ballad of "The Blue Of December."
