Read our exclusive interview with one of country's rising stars, Greg Bates.

Acoustic Nation Hosts Mass Appeal Guitars in Union Square NY

It was a glorious day in Union Square Park on June 21. Just the right kind of weather for hundreds of guitarists to gather and jam for Mass Appeal: Guitars, an annual event that’s part of the Make Music Festival. This year, Acoustic Nation co-hosted the event with the New York City Guitar School and I have to say, it was truly epic.

Originally from Australia and now situated in Nashville, this man knows how to coax the most expressive melodies and counterpoints out of his guitar. And this show ranged from down and dirty blues to classic Americana.

Lesson: LP Shows Us How to Play "Night Like This"

LP's new album Forever For Now is one of my favorites of 2014. That's why I was thrilled to have the chance to sit down with this amazing songwriter, guitarists, ukulele player and vocalist to try a lesson on how to play her new single "Night Like This" on ukulele.

Exclusive Premiere: Goodnight, Texas’ “A Bank Robber’s Nursery Rhyme”

Sneak Peek: Wise Girl's "Sing Me To Sleep"

Here’s a wonderful new song from NYC based group Wise Girl. It’s a sneak peek from their upcoming Sing Me To Sleep EP titled, appropriately, “Sing Me To Sleep.” It’s a lovely acoustic ballad that features the velvety voice of Abby Weitz and some solid strumming and a few added embellishments.

There's something about breaking a produced track down into its acoustic elements that brings out the true heart of a song. Take this acoustic version of Pilot For A Day's "A Little More."

Exclusive Interview: LP Talks New Album 'Forever For Now,' Ukulele and More

If there’s one new album you should listen to this year, LP’s Forever For Now is it. I’m not just saying that because several of its amazingly well-written, hooky songs are forever stuck in head. It’s so much more. The gorgeous production with just enough quirky bits left into the polished perfection. The fabulous musicianship, including most especially the dazzlingly talented LP herself. We’re talking powerful vocals, super solid ukulele riffs, plus whistling, yodelly do-dos, big drums, hand claps and about a million other things.
