Arriving May 21st is the debut release "Revel" from the country roots band, Nineteen Hand Horse featuring lead vocalist Nathalie Archangel. Fans may recognize Archangel from her work with Bette Midler, Frankie Vallie and Howard Jones. The band's new ten song release begins with the nostalgic country duet of "Just Another Honky Tonk Night, which brings up memories of George Jones and Tammy Wynette or Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. The album continues with the dark, spaghetti-western themed "The Withering Romance Of Trains" and the gallop, country blues of "19 Hand Tale." The rockabilly flavor of "Better As A Goddess (Than A Lover)" highlights Nathalie's rich, pure, attitude-infused vocals, while "Revel" has a slinky, country two-step shuffle rhythm. Nineteen Hand Horse closes out their new album with the upbeat, swinging twangy tempo of "Fete Ginette" and the steady, guitar-driven melody of "Ghost Train."

Roots music artist Maria Muldaur recently released her new album "Let's Get Happy Together" with New Orleans-based street band, Tuba Skinny. Their new twelve song release wastes no time taking you down to Bourbon Street with the jazzy shuffle of the opening track "I Like You Best Of All." Maria has a special talent of bringing songs that are nearly a century old back to their shining glory, as in "Let's Get Happy Together" and "Swing You Sinners." Tuba Skinny are the perfect match to Maria's nostalgic singing on the Irving Berlin classic "He Ain't Got Rhythm" and the sweet, smooth-as-silk-sounding style of "I Go For That." Maria Muldaur and Tuba Skinny wrap up their new album with the slow-moving bluesy ballad "Some Sweet Day" and the final trip around New Orleans with the soulful melody of "Road Of Stone."
