New Album By Carmen Souza, Be Prepared To Be Addicted

Wednesday, June 2, 2010

All right, I really hate when people do this, but here it goes. Carmen Souza sounds like if Tracy Chapman and Ziggy Marley had a kid, and then the members of Rusted Root babysat that kid, then when it got older and went to music school it started to listen to a lot of Ella […]

If you’ve visited BootsnAll during the last week or so, you’ve probably noticed their site went through a pretty dramatic re-design. Why, I wonder? Recent break-up, perhaps, with GoNomad?

When Weighing Your Options, Choose Choice Air

Thursday, May 13, 2010
