Fire and Earth is the latest offering from guitarist Joseph Allred. It’s released on Scissor Tail Records who speak highly – There’s a sincerity in Allred’s music and way of life that has been missing from modern life for a long time. Dig deeper and listen in full to the album.

I can only say that I loved this album, and probably will for as long I can imagine. You can find virtuoso playing, imaginative composition, wonderful arranging and a sense of ‘I’m taking this music where I want it to go, without forgetting the roots of its being.’ What more could you ever want?
On Black Wind, songwriter / guitarist Wes Tirey makes the case for quality over quantity. Whereas his previous releases were turned inward, this album opens out like Terence Malick meditating on prairie grass. The arrangements are spacious, simple structures of voice and acoustic guitar, with sparse backing from a Telecaster and a trap kit.
