This is the second issue
of The Crossing bringing you NEW releases, recent releases and future releases.
It all just ends up being a tidal wave of music that, if you're not careful,
will sweep you away to the land of no money. So choose carefully and wisely.
There's just a whole lot of great music coming out now and that HAS been
coming out. And there's no better way to kick off a new month than having
one of your favorite artists releasing an album of all new tracks. Every-so-often
I'll have a featured ARTIST of the MONTH for someone who really deserves
special attention. This month it's Bill Mallonee and his new album Dear
Life which, from what I understand, will have
a good mix of his recent
pop stuff (think Perfumed Letter) with a return to his older Americana
style (think Audible Sigh). Bill's albums are always special and this should
be no exception. I'll also have a lyric of the month at the end of every
issue. So, why wait any longer? Let's kick July off with a bang!
This MONTH'S featured ARTIST:
Bill Mallonee - Dear Life
