CHELY WRIGHT

Lifted off the Ground may be Chely Wright’s seventh album, but on a number of levels it feels and sounds like her first, revealing an artist who has undergone a dramatic artistic transformation, emerging as a singer/songwriter of the first order. But the new album would never have come to be were it not for an equally dramatic personal transformation, which she has candidly and painstakingly documented.

His true identify remains a mystery, despite his surfacing in Canada in the 1970s. He's mastered the old-timey sound with his unique voice and strumming. You may have seen him on Saturday Night Live years ago, the Tonight Show or elsewhere. His last show at the Narrows sold out quickly. www.leonredbone.com

RYAN MONTBLEAU BAND

“Time hangs heavy on the vine/Let’s make wine,” Ryan Montbleau sings in the lulling, sensual verse that gives his group’s
new album its title. Ryan Montbleau Band has been tending its own musical vineyard for a few years, on the patient cusp
of a breakthrough. Their distinctive, long-fermenting blend of neo-folk, classic soul, and kick-out-the-jams Americana
finally comes to full fruition in Heavy on the Vine. It’s an album that represents the product of — and further promise of —
a very good year.
