Elles Bailey: Road I Call Home Review

Every life event is fodder for the tell-all where artists are concerned—but on her second album, Elles Bailey stays focused on her experiences from the road. Released on March 8 through United Kingdom-based Outlaw Music, Road I Call Home is the 11-track follow-up to Bailey’s first full-length album Wildfire. Though Bailey recorded music prior to Wildfire’s release in September 2017, the strength of the album is what started drawing attention to Bailey’s vocals and songwriting. The elevated exposure enabled Bailey to spend the bulk of her time on the road as she traveled from one venue to the next, honing her performance skills and collecting the kinds of new experiences that make writing a sophomore album seem a little less daunting.

Anders Osborne announces “Buddha and the Blues”

Few musicians know what it’s like to leave New Orleans for California, record an album with a few absolutely legendary musicians, and return home in time to release said album and play the main stage at one of the world’s most beloved music festivals—but by the time the second weekend of New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival rolls around, Anders Osborne will. On April 26th, Osborne’s Buddha and the Blues will be released worldwide on Back On Dumaine Records. With the title in hand from the start, Osborne had a clear vision of how his new record should resonate, noting that, “Buddha and the Blues means the duality of our existence. The lyrics are supposed to be true, conversational, and uplifting with clean, classic, and thumpin’ sounds. That’s what I set out to accomplish.”

Gone is the young Louisiana gunslinger who erupted onto the early-’90s scene with his burn-it-down guitar solos and gut-punch songcraft. The 41-year-old he’s become is even more magnetic, still pushing his Fender Strat where others fear to fret. As a grown man and a father, there are different thoughts and feelings that have come into focus.
