Looking Into You - Tribute To Jackson Brown - Multiple Artists

Birds of Chicago - Live from Space - Allison Russel's voice with JT Nero's songwriting in a live concert setting - a great ride

Eliza Gilkyson - The Nocturne Diaries - grammy nominated - person songs and lots of social and political commentary, with that Eliza voice

Red Molly - The Red Album - They finally recorded Richard Thompson's song about their namesake - 1952 Vincent Black Lightning!

Joe Crookston - Georgia I'm Here - a gorgous songwriter - "Fall Down as the Rain" always brings calls from tearful listeners
