Today, we are sharing the band’s latest video for the song “Almost,” which has a interesting back story. Teicher discovered footage of his grandparents' journey of love, marriage, and family, and compiled these clips into a music video, pairing the beautiful footage along with the equally beautiful tune. This inspirational love story is strung together by a folksy, stark acoustic guitar and pizzicato strings.
Here’s the song “Heartbreaker of the Year,” the title track from Whitney Rose’s upcoming album, due out August 21. Stark and sultry, here Rose hits heartache right between the eyes. With a croon that wraps dances perfectly between plaintive guitar riffs, the Rose skillfully delivers classic country magic.
If you want people who are better than you to take the time to help you, then you need to take the time to help others. The answer to every situation in life is not, “How much can I GET out of this?” Sometimes, the reverse is true. Maybe what you GIVE is the important question to ask. And, sometimes you get more from giving than you get from trying to get all the time!
Here’s Megan Burtt’s “Spin” from her upcoming album The Bargain, due out August 25. Pulsing and powerful and lovely, Burtt gracefully manipulates words and melody into a sultry delight. Her velvety voice seeps right into your being as she pulls you into the gorgeous foray.
Vance Joy has released today the official music video for “All I Ever Wanted” from his debut album Dream Your Life Away.

Today we bring you the premiere of Paul Doffing’s new video, “The Legend of Mick Dodge.” Set to a montage of serene visuals, Doffing’s soft fingerpicking and detailed storytelling brings to mind Iron and Wine and Neil Young, with his own fresh, introspective appeal. “The Legend of Mick Dodge” sounds like it was written by someone who spent a lot of time thinking and reflecting. Having recently toured the country on his bicycle – where he pedaled 7,000 miles and played over 100 shows — Doffing certainly fits this description.
Here’s a really great video featuring the guitar playing sisterly duo of Grace and Chelsea Constable. Equipped with Taylor guitars (a nylon string 214ce-N for Grace and a 714ce for Chelsea), the Constables perform an incredible tribute to the legendary Jerry Reed. “Jerry’s Breakdown” is no walk in the park for even the most seasoned of fingerstyle guitarists, but Chelsea and Grace—only 13 years old—make it look easy!

The Milk Carton Kids' Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan are studied craftsmen of the folk tradition.
