Acoustic Kitty Project: Live at City View Sound

Carter Lansing’s gritty vocals have been compared to John Hiatt, Steve Earle, and Warren Haynes. Backed by veteran drummer Bill Matlack Jr., bassist Mary Chamberlain, Dan DeChellis on keyboards, and Mike Carr on lead guitar, Acoustic Kitty Project continues to impress every crowd for whom they have the privilege of playing.

Carter’s songs expose the raw, common threads that run through all of our lives. We all get hurt, we all break down, and sometimes, things are good. No matter what, the important lesson is to keep moving forward.

Dana Gaynor Band Stands Up to Give ‘Power to the People’

Dana Gaynor is one of our music scene’s true icons and veterans. She’s won awards, and has played and toured with world-renowned artists.

All of Dana’s influences and experiences seem to come together splendidly on her band’s latest release, “Power to the People,” a seamless 14-track journey through the lands of blues, funk, country, and rock and roll.

Dana’s guitar work on “Power to the People” is, as expected, magnificent. A particular highlight is “In the Land of Fool’s Gold,” which features two well-crafted solos. Things get grittier on “Road to Oblivion,” which is complemented nicely with a fun groove in the rhythm section.

One thing to note about “Power to the People” is versatility. “Frenchman’s Wife” draws its main influence from country, while “Ghost Train” showcases the band’s blues side. Meanwhile, the album’s title track brings out the funk as Gaynor cries out for mankind to stand together and find unity in the world’s madness.

By crossing so many different styles and appealing to so many different tastes, Dana Gaynor makes it possible to find that unity, not only through her lyrics, but through a thoughtful album that offers something for everyone.
