Hi My Loves
Pistol Annies made their debut on April 22, 2011, on the Academy of Country Music’s Girls’ Night Out: Superstar Women of Country they performed “Hell on Heels” and this is that song that made me fall in love with them. Pistol Annies is a trio made up of three wonderful and talented ladies Mrs Miranda Lambert-Sheldon, Ms Ashley Monroe, and Ms Angaleena Presley. They have given themselves the nicknames “Lonestar Annie” (Lambert), “Hippie Annie” (Monroe), and “Holler Annie” (Presley) it’s a lot of fun and that’s what music is really about isn’t it, fun. I guess the gang comes under the umbrella country, outlaw country, or folk but for me there is only one umbrella and that is music.
The Annies have taken country back to the roots up not without give their music a new generation twist there sound is cool & gritty but also is effortless all at the same time. I love their songwriting , and if you love hearing fun, witty songs from smart women you will love this band
My favorite song on the first album are Hell on Heels, Takin’ Pills and Family Feud but if you are a gal like me and have a weakness for cowboys you can’t pass up listening to Boys from the South. It will make you want to yell Hell-yea!!
The gal’s celebrated the release of their sophomore album Annie Up last week and I can’t wait to get paid so I can get on Itunes and download that sucker
Hi My Loves,
“Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.” ― Hunter S. Thompson

Hi My Loves,
So it’s been a huge week in the life of Little L. Went for a new job, nerve racking yes and a growing experience either way it goes. My music Monday was seen by the woman herself Ms Dana Fuchs and posted on her twitter page. Views to this blog have been through the roof. Thank you Ms Dana and welcome to all the people that have clicked on this little blog. Much Love and hugs. So here is your Friday Cool Links For Cool People

Hi My Loves,
Dana’s voice is just so soulful and raw. She began singing in the First Baptist Gospel Choir at age 12. Was a front woman by 16 and arrived alone and broke in NYC at age 19. She has been called the love child of Robert Plant and Janis Joplin .Joplin comparison was inevitable and she does have similar hair to Mr Plant but Dana is a talent all of her own and a force of bluesy nature.
My first introduction to her was her portrayal of Sadie in “Across the Universe,”. When I heard her song “Why Don’t We Do In The Road?” with a back bending kick arse screech I sat there in the theatre thinking – who is this woman and please tell me she has albums, lots of albums. The next day I ran out to the record store and brought the soundtrack (yes, this was a time when people actually still brought those little shiny things called discs) Let me tell you, I played that album unstop.
It was only a few months ago when I’ve been getting into the ladies of jazz and blues music for my current WIP that I downloaded all Dana Fuchs albums and I fell in musical love. Love to Beg and NYC Live are amazing
“All Dana Fuchs has to do is sing. All it takes is one note from those celebrated lips and clocks stop, crowds snap to attention, hearts beat like bass drums and neck-hair tingles. It’s often been said that the Florida-born front-woman could sing the phone directory and still hold her listeners spellbound. True enough, but in 2013, when Dana applies that extraordinary voice to the classic songs from third album Bliss Avenue, you’ll realize that you’re in the presence of once-a-generation greatness.” ~ Henry Yates from Classic Rock Magazine
Her new album “Bliss Avenue” will be released worldwide this July on Ruf Records and I am counting down the days
Check out Dana and her bluesy gospel goodness and tell me what you think

Hi My Loves,
You properly heard of Emmy Rossum and seen her as an actress in Mystic River and the television show Shameless but what you might not know is that she can sing like no one elses business. I brought her second album Sentimental Journey stellar voice to songs popularized by some of the most beloved artists of the last century — from Bessie Smith to Frank Sinatra, from Judy Garland to Connie Francis, from Eddie Cantor to Edith Piaf. The songs date from the 1920s through mid-1960s and I have to admit I have to admit that I only recognized a couple of the songs.
I have fallen in love with this album it’s going to be one of my faves of 2013. I listened to it late one night when I was trying to write and I could just put it on in the background and not get distracted. You kind of go on a journey back in time when you listen to this album, you kind of drift away.
Rather than traditional music videos, “vignettes” were filmed and released to promote the album and feature Emmy dressed for the part with the clothing and setting with songs from the album playing in the background. It is truly beautiful and I hope the music industry takes note of this album and recover the beauty of this type of music, the simple class and beauty before outrageously colored hair and diva like faux persona took over.
