Gerald Collier, Saturday, June 2


Music
[ALT-COUNTRY] Even in this sequel-happy world, true stories don't often get a second chance at a happy ending. And singer-songwriter Gerald Collier's hard-luck story is a tale as old as the music business itself: Boy meets band; boy and band make beautiful music; boy and band get signed; record label folds and...   More

RICHMOND FONTAINE, Thirteen Cities (Union Records)


Music

Well, just to clarify: it wasn't supposed to begin "When I first heard 'Smile,'" as it does. No, it was supposed to read, "At first, when I heard her ...   More
