Aptly titled the ‘Redemption Roundup’, our last Weekly Roundup blog promptly vowed to “resume our curation of actually weekly [sic] Weekly Roundups.” That was on November 30th.
Mackenzie Shivers is a lot more than just a fitting name for the winter season. The New York singer-songwriter has been building her base since the release of 2014’s Neverland, at least in part captivating by her dedication to her cultural roots and traditions. Her studious, heartfelt indie folk and pop has consistently been informed by the musical inflections of her Irish heritage. She met critical acclaim with her 2019 LP, The Unkindness, and has toured the country and performed in Tokyo since, making it a landmark year for the singer-songwriter.
Well, pals, it’s only been twelve weeks since our last Weekly Roundup. Apologies are in order, especially since, as this website continues to flourish, I wouldn’t want to miss even dream of missing a single roundup. Compacting a lengthy series of whiffed excuses into a something singular, I can only express that a routine is difficult to adhere to when you’re first starting out. No matter the weather or where I’m at in life following this point henceforth, I, Jonathan Frahm, vow to update my website on a consistent basis. We shall begin with actually weekly Weekly Roundups.
My weekly roundup of articles I’ve had published includes the world premiere of Engelbert Humperdinck’s first-ever music video over at PopMatters, an interview with singer-songwriter Horace Holloway, and Lister and I’s next installment in our Super Cast Bros. podcast. Check this post out to see the full showcase!
Almost five years ago, Jamie Alimorad shook hands with Gino Vannelli to seal a verbal agreement. Revered for soft rock staples like “I Just Wanna Stop” and “Living Inside Myself”, the Canadian singer-songwriter is also a prolific producer and mentor. While touring to promote his previous release, Words Left Unsaid, Alimorad was chosen for Vannelli’s Art of Voice Master Class, and the rest is history.
