Mark & Ingunn Invite You To Their New Album & VickiKristinaBarcelona Re-imagine Tom Waits Music

Co-founder of The Jayhawks, Mark Olson has once again teamed up with his talented wife Ingunn Ringvold for a new album titled "Magdalen Accepts The Invitation." The new ten song release centers around the couple's recent adventures together, as well as past adventures apart. The album begins with the loving melody of "Pipestone I Won't Be Back," as the duo duet on this gentle opener. Olsen's writing has a Ray Davies (The Kinks) quality, as displayed in "Excelsior Park," about visiting an old amusement park and wanting to go back to that time in his life. Mark and Ingunn tap into their pop side with the addictive sounds of "April In Your Cloud Garden," while showcasing their beautiful harmonies on "Silent Mary." They finish their new album with the enlightening tale of "Elmira's Fountain" and the honest, quiet folk ballad "Black Locust."

The New York-based trio of Rachelle Garniez, Amanda Homi and Terry Radigan recently released a new album titled "Pawn Shop Radio," under the moniker VickiKristinaBarcelona. This new ten track release takes the song of legendary singer/songwriter Tom Waits and re-interprets them to match the trio's sweet harmonies. The album kicks off with the Americana feel of "Cold Cold Ground," before adding a bit of spunk to "Jersey Girls," as you can't resist the ladies wonderful harmonies. VickiKristinaBarcelona bring on the blues of "God's Away On Business," then present the addictive melody of "Way Down In The Hole," with very little instrumentation. They finish up their new album with the deep, dark swagger of "Chicago" and the hymnal prayer of "Innocent When You Dream."
