Photography blog. Yes. Music review blog. No.
But, hey, Michelle is a friend – and her great new album, Roads End, was just released.
Warning – this isn’t one of those unbiased / technical music reviews. Sorry, won’t happen. She could probably release an album of Journey covers only using a washboard and rusty spoons – and I’d probably review it favorably.
Bottom line – this is just an announcement that you can find her groovy new CD here. Check it out.
Now, I know Michelle has been in the studio for awhile on this one. And then something bad happened – like all the masters melted or were buried in macaroni & cheese or something. Whatever it was – it was bad. And Michelle went back into the studio to get her tracks down (again).
Her previous releases were a lot of her and her guitar. In contrast – this album has more backup band – giving her less “folk singer” – and replacing it with some blues-like-stuff + a hint of country at times + some mellow-rock-sorta- riffs.
Told you reviewing music wasn’t my gig.
The images on her latest release came from a day shoot at Joshua Tree. I happened to be in Palm Springs for my real job, and with a little time in the middle of the week long trip, I took the little blue rental care out on a drive. If you haven’t been out there before – you might consider adding it to your “list”. It’s on my other “list” to review the Joshua Tree stuff another time here on the blog – so, little detail now. And, yes, you guessed it, simply the 20D, the 24mm f/2.8, and a circular polarizer.
