Goodness gracious, I can’t seem to stop listening to Ellie Goulding. The day-glow princess released her second album, Halcyon,

Pop and Dance music fans — and plenty of less synth-obsessed music
Nickel Creek is back. The Bluegrass-y trio first arrived in
1993 and quickly became a well-loved band. In 2007, they embarked on their “Farewell (For
Now)” tour. Now, they’ve teamed up once again for
the release of A Dotted Line.
The story of Grouplove is like something
straight out of the ’60s. The band members met at an artist commune on
the Greek island of Crete. All struggling to pay their bills with their
various forms of art, they each stumbled upon the right people at the

Crete, able to focus on art instead of working to pay rent.
It’s been a decade since Blue Note
Records signed Amos Lee and put out his self-titled EP. Since then, the
Folk/Soul singer/songwriter has yet to disappoint. With a voice that

It seems a little early (or maybe late)
for a Gregory Alan Isakov concert. His warm voice is more on par with a
concert in the grass on an Indian summer evening. Still, we should be
happy to have him in town whenever we can get him.
G. Love & Special Sauce return to Cincinnati to promote the upcoming album Sugar and celebrate the 20th anniversary of
their breakthrough self-titled debut album, featuring hits like “Cold
Beverage.” The band’s first set will be that debut LP in its entirety.
