Acoustic guitar virtuoso Mark Vickness is returning to release his sophomore effort titled "Interconnected." It has been three since Mark's debut release "Places" and this new nine song album shows us how much he has grown into a conductor, as well as a performer. The album begins with the flowing melody of "Interwoven," which certainly highlights Mark classical side, while the follow-up track "Grey Skye" delivers folky, more relaxed, acoustic based instrumental track. The energy picks up, but only slightly on the Celtic feel of "Hot Apple Stuff," while Mick Vickness relaxes your senses with the emotional ballad "Mia Lucia." He finishes up his new album with classical lullaby of "For Every Child" and acoustic, non-lyrical tale of "One Day Over A Thousand."

Next, singer/songwriter Stephen Britt will excite your senses with a jolt of energy in the form of his latest solo album "Bite A Lemon." Britt is the leader of the North Carolina punk band, Ugly Runner, which released their debut album earlier this year, before breaking up during the quarantine. Now, Britt is pursuing a solo career with as much passion and energy as he put into the band. The album kicks off with the loud, rawnchy delivery of "Elevator Toe Jam" and the alternative buzz of "Sweet Michelle." Britt also brings some undeniable pop licks into the wildly addictive "Imaginary World," while "Happy Now" is relaxed, acoustic gold. He adds even more melody to the psychedelic touch of the title song "Bite A Lemon," before wrapping up his new album with the raw rocker "Get Through To You" and the quiet acoustics of "Hate To Be Wrong."
