Kern Richards feature review on No Depression

Kern has been getting a slow and steady foothold on his new release and he's about to hit the road this summer for the East Coast. Mr. Richards has been racking up airplay and great reviews already and we know he's just getting started. A word from No Depression- "Don't expect no "Happy go lucky" here but do expect much brutally honest lyrics and some great arrangements which I was pleasantly surprised. Anywhere but home is the perfect name for the record which tells stories of lonesome, highways, 24hr cafes,booze, lost love, injustices and everything that comes with. Richards voice really stands out and sounds like" its been in a smoke house for several days and placed on the highway only to be hit by a semi truck". Get the whole shootin match here.

Work has begun on the upcoming Joshua Morningstar release slated for late 2014. The singer songwriter was recently added to the ALTCO roster and will be appearing occasionally with Stevie Tombstone as they prepare to hit the studio. The release promises to be a honest portrait of Joshua and his talents. Be sure to keep and eye out for him on the road and check him out on Facebook for updates about his new project. He just may be at Moonrunner's as well so give him a warm welcome if you see him on the midway.

More copies of Greenwood will be available on vinyl soon so stay tuned for details. Until then enjoy the Altco version of " Lucky" the first track off the Greenwood release . Its available now on Itunes and Amazon and in your finer record shops.
