It’s only been a few times over the last couple of years that I’ve visited with Woody Earwood, but it’s always been a treat. He’s laid back, easy to talk to, and passionate about his music. All of these qualities make for a great time on the Northwest Georgia Music Hour. Woody has been writing a lot recently and we enjoyed listening to some fresh tunes performed live on the air.

We also visited with Dani Cochran who organized the Led Zeppelin Tribute Benefit Concert for Heroes Great and Small. The event is packed with local artists and is scheduled for this Saturday in the Schroeder’s Courtyard. More information is available on MullinsMania.com. Here’s what we heard this week.

Liz Womble – Borrowed Time
Within the Pines – Nothing to See

Avoid the Spiral has participated in some great shows in the last couple of years. The last time I caught them was in the Schroeder’s Courtyard for the Turn Your Back on Hate’s Change Starts at Home concert in May. I knew that night that it was high time for them to join us on The Northwest Georgia Music Hour. This week we enjoyed some recordings from their upcoming album, Victim of Circumstance. Naturally, we convinced them to perform some of the tracks in a stripped-down acoustic fashion, and we loved it. Here’s what we heard.

Shane West – Daddy’s Guitar
Scott Thompson – Alone in Memphis
Blacklight Crush – Perfect Storm
Nosecone Prophets – C’est La Vie
Avoid the Spiral – Bare Knuckle
Avoid the Spiral – Autumn (live)
Avoid the Spiral – Fake
Avoid the Spiral – Full Circle (live)

A visit with The Maddox Band

I really enjoyed the few times that I’ve been able to catch Brandon Maddox perform around town. It was a no-brainer to me that we’d love to have him as a guest on The Northwest Georgia Music Hour. At the time, we had no idea that he’d be joined by Kate Lovely. Her addition really put the icing on the cake and we certainly enjoyed our first encounter with The Maddox Band. Brandon’s songs and guitar playing is outstanding and the duo’s harmonies are sweet and powerful. I must admit, I should have had the mics a little less hot. There’s some peaking on the performance but hey, it’s live radio and I get pretty caught up in the moment. It still sounds great to me. Here’s what we heard.

Gene Brigham – Free
Craig Conway – Move On
Tina & The Goose – Hurricane
South of Heaven – It Ain’t Mine
The Maddox Band – Neon’s Glow (live)
The Maddox Band – Kissin’ in the Rain (live)
The Maddox Band – Tennessee Street Party (live)
The Maddox Band – Living Reckless (live)
The Maddox Band – If We’re Gonna Leave (live)

On what other radio station in the world would you get to hear the Stereotrash Records Summer Sampler, Vol. 2? That’s right. None of them! Only on 95.7 The Ridge’s The Northwest Georgia Music Hour could such fresh material be enjoyed. And what better day could that be heard than on the first day of summer? This is only one of many reasons that the future of music in Northwest Georgia is brighter than all get out and hotter than a brand from the headpiece to the staff of Ra. Here’s what we heard.

John Stone – Frozen Margaritas and Leftover Pizza
Ethos – Agnosia
David Bell – Next to Nothing
Boxwine & The Brewnettes – Summer Sandwiches
Cannon & The Boxes – More to Do
Graham & Vann – Elephant Shot Dead In the City
The Donors – Top Keeps Spinning
Tina & The Goose – Hurricane
Muletide Perkins – Cool, Dry Place
