Project Mama Earth to release debut EP “Mama Earth” on November 10th 2017

Preparation is overrated. Impulse is everything. Such was the rebellious wisdom that drove the sessions for Project Mama Earth’s astonishing debut EP. In June 2017, five world-renowned musicians met in Devon England for a high-wire act unique in modern music. They had no songs. No chord charts. No game plan. No safety net. Nothing, in fact, but a plan to...

Blackmore’s Night - All Our Yesterdays

New studio album for Blackmore’s Night, two years after “Dancer and the Moon”. Once again we get some nice folk acoustic pop tracks, with fine melodies and some great performances.
