Lilith Fair A Big Success Despite Canceled Shows

August 23rd, 2010 10:45pm EDT
Sarah McLachlan
The summer's Lilith '10 tour has been ruled a charity success, despite the cancellation of dates - the roving all-women concert has raised more than $500,000 for North American organizations.

The tour had a shaky start as acts like Norah Jones and Kelly Clarkson pulled out amid poor ticket sales, but organizers refused to give up on Lilith - and now charity officials are saluting the efforts of co-founder Sarah McLachlan, Mary J. Blige, the Indigo Girls and their tourmates.

Lilith '10 recently wrapped up its 23-city run and now there are plans in motion to take the concept to Australia la...

The Bush Administration: A Musical Tribute

January 14th, 2009 9:21am EST
George W. Bush

As we all hopefully look forward to our next President, let's take one last look back (and good-bye) at George W. Bush, and some so...

Return of the 70's Singer-Songwriter

April 4th, 2008 2:01pm EDT
Sheryl Crow
Successful singer-songwriters have spanned across the decades, but no era saw them flourish like the 1970s. James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Dan Fogelberg, Carly Simon, Jackson Browne and Neil Young (to name a few) were tearing up the airwaves. Their simple, thought-provoking melodies struck a chord with a Vietnam War-torn America and left an indelible mark on the modern music biz. Well, tune your radios and adjust your mp3 players, folks. The 70s singer-songwriter sound is back - with a whole new batch of artists.

Jackson Browne live (1978):

New Pink Album 'I'm Not Dead' Hits Stores In April

January 24th, 2006 4:30pm EST
Pink
On April 4, 2006, the multiple Grammy winning, multi-platinum selling LaFace recording artist known as Pink will unleash her 4th album, I'm Not Dead, and it is everything it should be: a stylistic evolution; a stunning display of her craft as a vocalist and songwriter and a very personal scrap book of everywhere she's been and everywhere she's going. This is Pink in top form, as brutally honest and as soulfully vocal as only she can be. This album brims with Pink's signature funk, but I'm Not Dead reveals her rock and roll side more than ever.
