(us) // of Hot Water Music
Ragan's gritty, deep voice is a perfect match to the country folk (with hints of americana, blue grass, rock and punk) of his solo project. His lyrics, recalling the American history, and the musical compositions make a melancholic whole. Chuck Ragan, with or without Hot Water Music, continues to strike emotional chords with his audience.

Jay Malinowski solo wears his heart on his sleeve in a very disarming and cathartic manner. Reggae is also of influence here, but it is lighter and stripped bare of over-production and density. In comes the folksy guitars and nostalgic lyrics, but delivered with such a flavor that Manilowski succeeds in making an old genre sound as the next new thing.
A new and fresh sound in the singer-songwriter scene, Cory Branan seduces with his poetry and beautiful songs that have a universal appeal built up from everyday life events, themes and people. He is an artist to keep an eye on.
Rocky Votolato pours his heart out, telling stories of hardships and life, backed by simple orchestration. And Votolato does simple the best. His trademark acoustic guitars strums guide you into the deep darkness of his vocalized thoughts and make it impossible to stay unmoved at his music.
Emily Barker, a name that rings bells (Wallander soundtrack) and calls for images of a fairylike small girl with a fairytelling voice, but nothing can be further from the truth: Emily Barker owns a voice that is soft and strong, soulful and folksy, storytelling and inspiring. She is a true artist: weaving her words and melodies together so one finally understands what 'singer-songwriter' is all about.
