News  Notes from Alley

Thursday, May 29 ~ Music - a gift shared by Muruch blog

"It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer." So observed E.B. White in Charlotte's Web (a most wonderful book).

I've been fortunate in my own life to know a few, who, like Charlotte, are both.

Transposing this essence to today's revolution in popular culture and communications, it's possible to find true friends of music, and good writers, in the world of blogs, podcasts and other web forums. People dedicated to sharing a passion for sounds.

Muruch, West-Virginia-based, Mountain Stage-loving, self-described "coffee & music enthusiast", focuses on album reviews - creating a blog that highlights a wide range of artists, through thoughtful and honest, clear prose.

Muruch has just published an interview with Allison. Allison, having a blast, between concert dates in Paris, Prague, Frankfurt, Vienna and bonnie East Kilbride, Scotland, reveals her character, and current and past,

And, for the next 24 hours or so, you can win a copy of Allison's newest album, "Little Light" with a simple visit/post. Here's what Muruch says:

"If you've read this blog for any length of time, you've probably noticed my unabashed love for Allison Crowe's music. She is my favorite contemporary female singer. I'm happy to say I will be giving away her new Little Light CD to one very lucky reader. You can read my review of the album and download mp3s from it here - and the contest details are below:"
