Lara Johnston is clearly on the rise with her powerful voice and fiery, captivating stage presence. Touring tirelessly, Lara Johnston has performed in the United States, Europe and Canada where she has shared the stage or opened for:Michael McDonald, Bonnie Raitt, Steve Miller, Willie Nelson, KISS, Tower of Power, Heart, Sammy Hagar, Huey Lewis, Pablo Cruise, Journey and Cheap Trick. She also won 3rd place in the prestigious BMI Foundation John Lennon Scholarship Competition. Not many 21 year olds can attract the attention of some of the most powerful names in music as Lara has. While Lara generally writes her own songs, she spent months collaborating on her new album with Nashville greats like Producer/songwriter Mike Krompass, and song writers Steve Diamond, Jim McCormick, Tebey and Tommy Lee James. Between the five of them these chart topping songwriters have worked with artists like Taylor Swift, Pixie Lott, David Archuleta, and Orianthi. Their talent and expertise is very influential on Lara’s new album being released later this year.What makes her so captivating, aside from her beauty, is the powerful voice that comes from within her and her ability to perform them effortlessly with a range of influences including Pop, Funk, Gospel, Rock, Jazz and Blues. Perhaps her favorite is Soul music. She was inspired at a young age by Aretha Franklin. She has truly achieved her aspiration and inspiration; to channel Aretha’s powerful, emotional and heartfelt story telling, making Lara the extraordinary artist that she has become. Sign up on her mailing list to get a free download of her new single from the record that is coming out in March 2012, just visit her site at http://larajohnston.com/ !

I'd recommend this collection only if you need a quick fix of Led Zeppelin, otherwise I prefer the richness that comes from their whole albums. As a Zep best of it's ok, Mothership is better as it has more hits, still Early Days & Latter Days: 1 & 2 has that brilliant cover art for those cover art collectors out there.

You see, I had it in my mind that anyone with a name that rhymes with guitar should be a Punk Rocker. Well, I'm glad Benatar also rhymes with Rock Star, cause Pat Benatar has done much to expand the way Rock looks and feels. For me the cadence of her songs are exciting, leaving space open for punctuation as well as surprise. Benatar's music has been the soundtrack to many a romantic ride, and this is not only because of the performances and production on her tracks, but also the storytelling in them. Lastly I've never her another singer put as many different feelings into a spit second. And this is why I can't recommend her Hits, or Greatest Hits albums, because "Ultimate" is what Pat Benatar's sound is all about.

The film "Sleepwalking Through The Mekong " not only chronicles the journey taken by Los Angeles based Khmer rock band Dengue Fever (www.myspace.com/denguefevermusic) to lead singer Chhom Nimol’s native Cambodia during the 2005 Water Festival. But also answers a question I've longed to find an answer to, what is this music, where is it from, and how come I have only hear of it recently? The band’s performances there marked the first time a Western band had performed classic 1960s and ‘70s Cambodian rock ‘n’ roll in the country where it was created and nearly erased from existence by the brutal Pol Pot regime. More than a rockumentary, the film serves up a portrait of modern Cambodia as the band tours through Phnom Penh and beyond, crossing a great cultural chasm with the same spirit of Cambodia’s original rock pioneers. DVD bonus material includes a biography of the band Dengue Fever, live performance segments, comments from director John Pirozzi, segments on the Cambodian Water Festival, the traditional Cambodian Coconut Dance and Cambodia’s Master Musicians. The accompanying CD soundtrack includes classic tracks from Cambodian artists Ros Serey Sothea, Sinn Sisamouth and Meas Samoun, as well as original material created by Cambodian master musicians Tep Mary and Kong Nai with Dengue Fever, and previously unreleased Dengue Fever instrumental tracks “March of The Balloon Animals” and “Phnom Chisor Serenade”.
