We welcome all newcomers to our website! The Hilonesome Band and I have really enjoyed getting back out onto the musical boards during April and have had some stellar shows already ~ most notably Bill Wagman’s House concerts in Davis, McCabe’s Guitar Shop with Houston Jones and the Red Barn Community Music Series in Los Osos, CA. We’ve had great response to the new album as we’ve been introducing it and sharing the new songs. Thanks to everyone who made those shows possible!
Not That Kind of Girl is in pre-release and will officially hit the online marketplace on June 12. The album is already garnering great reviews – this especially fine one from our friend Terry Roland at No Depression: http://nodepression.com/album-review/not-kind-girl-susie-glaze-and-hilonesome-band
And from a publication new to us: The Red Dirt Review: http://www.reddirtreport.com/rustys-music/susie-glaze-hilonesome-band-%E2%80%9Cnot-kind-girl%E2%80%9D
Our new friend William Phoenix from AXS wrote a fine article as well: http://www.axs.com/susie-glaze-the-hilonesome-band-to-release-not-that-kind-of-girl-49190

And finally, there will be some changes made to my regular column for FolkWorks from here on out. During the last few years I’ve been writing “Singin’ the Moon Up” I’ve focused on the work, life and legacy of my friend, the great Jean Ritchie. I will still be writing about Jean and her important and seminal body of work, but will also be taking some side trips from time to time, to blog about what’s going on around me here in Southern California. I hope you’ll all “tune in” as you have been. In the meantime, my current column on Folkworks for May can be found here:
Here’s to a lovely summer for all ~
