Standing In Chicago – (from the album Go West – 2009) : ADAM MARSLAND

Another New Yorker, and a long-time session musician with The Beach Boys, he branched out on his own to create this fantastic double CD covering a range of genres. Has often been compared, by his fans, to Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album, it covers a period of his life where he left the security of a huge band, tragically lost his brother, and had most of his recording equipment stolen in a burglary.

Heartbeat – (from the album Anniemal – 2005) : ANNIE
Annie Lilia Berge Strand, to give her her full name, is a bit of a Norwegian pop legend. She records sparingly, but her albums are always classic pop music but done in a style that has made her a bit of a darling of the indie crowd.

Lovers Dream – (from the EP Lovers Dream and More Music for Psychotic Lovers – 2007) : ANNA TERNHEIM

Swedish artiste who might be familiar to fans of the Swedish version of Wallander.

This EP is a somewhat smoother sound that her earlier works, but is a great introduction to this unusual singer
