Memphis-raised Askew is a charming, southern belle with a very distinctive vocal and musical style that can be heard on her recently released Empty Rooms EP.
Foreverly is a special little gem of an album that takes us back to bygone days when life was simple, at least in our memories, and music came straight from the heart.

"A Country Christmas Story" is a simple tale of hope and forgiveness. It has no pretensions of being anything but what it is. Make sure you and your family gather around to watch when it airs on Lifetime, November 9, 10 and 15.
Happily, L.A.'s locally grown music scene is as vibrant and diverse as ever with a slew of recent independent E.P.s and L.P.s so fresh and creative, they deserve your love and attention -- and airplay (KCRW and KCSN are you listening?).
On Friday, Sept. 12, 2003, my Mom woke me up. I didn't have to go to school that day, because I had to prepare for my big CD Release Party that night.

I'm a new fan of Uncle Kracker -- ever since my little cousin, Iman, stars in his latest video, "Blue Skies". I can't separate little Iman from his roots as his father, Faryab Lohrasbi, arrived in America in 1980, as a refugee, when he was just a couple years older than his son is now.
