You can say it’s just my opinion but I’ve been to a LOT of shows this past year, every conceivable style of music from metal to country to techno to punk and right now it’s got to be Americana style ensemble 'The Everybodyfields' Who are giving the most impressive performances and songwriting at the moment. Now Featured in 'The Listening Room.'

GFE is more serious, style & socially conscious than MC Frontalot and obsessive over their particular brand of space age spirituality. G.F.E .,which also stands for “God Force Energy” amongst many other things is a REAL touring band with drums, guitars, & horns as well as the large posse of hip hop DJ and rapper personas who take turns dishing out the jams. Rumor has it they recently shared the stage with George Clinton in New Orleans who also appears on their newest CD “Bigger than it Really Is”

If You are a fan of straightforward & melodious female acoustic singer songwriters with pretty voices and interesting lyrics, these girls should be playing on your CD early in the morning or late at night, or whenever you want to enjoy relaxing music that also makes You think about life a bit. Jennifer Daniels has a following in the Southeast, Audra Kubat has a following in Detroit and Jane Weaver is a classic heart-throb in Manchester England, While Tift Merritt brings beauty back into female country vocals.

In the tradition of some of the most successful family musical units of the last century, the Bridges initial knockout punch consists of their incredible vocal harmonies which blend together in a manner only genetic predetermination can produce.
The Bridges have been tapped for production by Matthew Sweet, who is wrapping up mastering their newest E.P. in his Los Angeles studio where they recorded during the last week of Sept. 06.

An Epiphany of Harmonies
The Everybodyfields Press release and Interview. Appalachian traditional style ORIGINAL music with stunning vocal harmonies and world class songwriting comes to New York City. Read about this stellar ensemble and listen to their live music online through links on this page. Article titled An Epiphany of Harmonies, The Everybodyfields come to New York by Robin Merritt, an Interview with The Everybodyfields and photos by Jacob Anderson. After seeing dozens of major label and unknown groups of every style this year, The Everybodyfields, in my opinion, are in the position of the best live ensemble out of every style as well as having the two best recordings and becoming some of the top songwriters in the country. Reminiscent of Neil Young, The Byrds and Patsy Cline. Sarah Alden of Luminescent Orchestrii joins The Everybodyfields for their New York performances.

Charles' songwriting has a strange, tingly effect on me. The songs are SO melodious and almost too sweet for most of my rock 'n roll pals, But the guy really has got soul and a wonderful voice. You can listen to most all of his recorded music (minus my very favorite cuts from the “Braced in the Beams” CD) through his website, which is linked through “The Listening Room.”

Neko Case has possibly the most distinctive sounding voice in contemporary American pop, rock, country, girl power today….
The vocal quality of this performance was probably the best I’ve seen in a concert performance in recent memory and she’s looking like a rock n roller’s dream girl on stage with her white Gibson SG. “The Tigers Have Spoken” by Neko Case is one of the stellar live recordings of the year. Seeing this performance brought it to life in a vibrant spectacle that bowled over and wowed the Atlanta crowd…

I'm feeling the star presence shine. Maybe if Nick Drake came back as a girl, with all new material, sonically influenced by experiences in the great beyond? The snippets I caught of Jane Weaver's songs from her last CD titled “Like an Aspen Leaf” on WUTC FM were enough to send me on a search for as much of her music as I could find.
She is also the front vocalist and main songwriter for a band called “Misty Dixon.”
