Kelly English debuts serene single "Errors of My Ways," plays Urban Lodge Brewing 12.15

For singer-songwriter talent, such as Connecticut’s Kelly English, words seem to come easy, and they use them to express with sincerity their ups and their downs. In English’s latest piece, “Errors of My Ways,” she lets the gentle strings of her acoustic guitar and her graceful vocals tell a story of acceptance and forgiveness. The track never needs to stray from its serene mood, because it soothes and empowers with its honest emotion. English, who normally swims in alt-pop waters, takes a stroll around the shorelines of folk music to deliver an enchanting composition that is short but lasting in memory. Kelly will be performing at the Urban Lodge Brewing Co. in Manchester, CT on Dec 15th. Stream “Errors of My Ways” below to welcome the evening softly. - Rene Cobar

Nick Ferrio - Indie Roots Rocker hits the Rivoli 12.14

Nick Ferrio is a singer/songwriter based in Peterborough. Often compared to the likes of Blue Rodeo; Ferrio makes solid roots rock tunes but adds a modern indie twist. You can hear this on “Anxiety” from his 2018 album “Have A Nice Day”. It’s a mellow folk rock tune with jangly guitars and relatable lyrics in today’s world. Ferrio will be in Toronto at the Rivoli on December 14th with Lenny Bull and Side Hustle. – Kris Gies


AB/CZ debuts with psych-Americana single "Yellow Into Blue"

A defining characteristic of modern musicians today is that they do not only create tunes to jam to but entire worlds to immerse in, atmospheres rich with their personalities. Amy Beauregard and Corey Zwart, known to some as AB/CZ, have done just that with their December single “Yellow Into Blue,” which takes traditional Americana instrumentation and blends it slowly with lingering distorted guitar-chords for an ever-quaking track that is a feast of sonic delicacies. You have an assertive drum beat, distant guitar solos, mighty vocals, and the best part, which is how one can truly appreciate each thanks to the track’s length: bask in the composition. The debut single is a fine introduction to the duo’s psych-Americana vibe; the Lowell, Massachusetts duo gets extra points for blending New England’s folk history with a more modern feel. Stream “Yellow Into Blue” below for a much-deserved Monday pick-me-up treat. - Rene Cobar


Andy Grozier "Don't Forget the Lights"

Trafton’s “Gone” is a cold, lonely affair

It’s easy to imagine yourself in a verdant, lonely locale when listening to the music of East Village-based songwriter Trafton, and new single “Gone” is his coldest, most distant destination yet. Damper-pedaled pianos and an at times whispering falsetto endow this recent offering with visions of wintery woods, a more key-friendly take on the isolation familiar to fans of Bon Iver or Thoreau’s Walden. Within this distance established between Trafton and the listener, however, is a separate, more intrinsic loneliness, the product of a separation between the artist and their now-gone ex-love, as well as a desire to return; Trafton’s parting words implore the individual to “come tell me I’m wrong, and please don’t be gone.” It’s a haunting track that will resonate with fans of folk and good songwriting during this cold December— listen below. —Connor Beckett McInerney
