From the blue hills of Kentucky comes the latest release from singer/songwriter Stoll Vaughan titled "Desires Shape." The album was released on April 17th and was supposed to be followed by a tour of the southern states with the Allman Betts Band, which has rescheduled to late summer. His new ten track release, begins with the gentle, stark, emotional folk ballad "Put It Back Together," which will have you following his every storied word. The album's lead single "Weather In Kentucky" is a ode to his home state, as Stoll emulates more confidants in his delivery of this song. Songs like "Oklahoma" and "Rosie" are calming and relaxed, that make you feel as if you can listen to Stoll Vaughan's songs all day and night. He also brings a little bit of blues into his acoustic delivery to the songs "Entertained" and "Maria."

Arriving about a month later on May 22nd is the debut solo release from U.K. based singer/songwriter Joe Edwards. His new album "Keep On Running" was recorded and mixed in Nashville by Juno award-winner Steve Dawson and features eleven tracks that look to capture the essence of Joe's small hometown of Wiltshire, U.K. The album begins with the sweet, soft melodic touch of "Beth's Song," before adding a bit more swagger to his sound on "Capital Blues." Joe drowns himself in the swampy blues of "Cross The Line," before quieting down for the storied prayer of "The Gambler" and the inspirational folk ballad "Don't Let The Bastards Get You Down." Joe Edwards wraps up his new album with the steady, country swinging rhythm of the title-song "Keep On Running" and the final calling from the blues during "Mine Oh Mine."
