Singer/songwriter Peggy James is preparing to release her fifth studio album "Paint Still Wet" on September 18th. This new twelve track release blurs the lines between country, Americana and pop music, beginning with the gentle, nostalgic sway of the opener "Let's Fly Away." The beautiful folk touch of "Wiser" features some sweet slide guitar from Jim Eannelli, before the energy picks up, slightly, for the addictive pop melody of "Holdin' Hands." Nimble picking from Daryl Stuermer (Genesis, Phil Collins Band) is featured on "San Antone." Peggy James channels Peggy Lee on the classic, country blues of "Can't Do Lonely Anymore," while the wonderful harmonies gives "Lighter Than A Feather" a more emotional tone to the ballad. Eannelli's amazing guitar work highlights the deep Americana groove of "Head Over Heals," before Peggy James wraps up her new album with the chugging rhythm of "Scarlet And Gold" and the loose, country rock of "Gettin' Serious."

Fellow singer/songwriter Dianne Davidson returns with brand new music on her sixth studio album "Perigon: Full Circle." Davidson was a former member of Linda Ronstadt's band and has sang back up for artists such as B.B. King, Jimmy Buffet and Barry Manilow just to name a few. Her new twelve song release is her set of new material in over three decades and she has a lot of music built up for you to explore, beginning with the quiet, flowing ballad "Just Out Of Reach." Next, Davidson dives into the rocking blues "Subtle Touch," while "Precious Boys" has a sweet, country touch. Her vocals soar on the R&B flow of "Sounds Of The City," while "Solitary" has a swampy, southern blues vibe that matches Dianne's strong vocals perfectly. She finishes her new album with a fragile, stark rendition of Bob Dylan's "To Make You Feel My Love" and the emotional, acoustic folk ballad "Missing You Tonight."
