GETTING WASTED WITH CHRIS GANTRY

posted June 18th, 2019

"Wasted" is a reflection of Nashville legend Chris Gantry's long and winding path through this world - but the vitality of the songwriting stops the music from becoming simple elegy or denouement.

posted June 12th, 2019

Roots of Confusion Seeds of Joy is here, and just in time for everyone! As one of the practitioners of an increasingly rare form of musical alchemy, Major Stars have proven to be an antidote to all sorts of real-world trauma.

Playing material arranged for a sextet fronted by a trio of guitars, Major Stars have developed a habit of rehearsing... (read more)
