and poignant songwriting, who is garnishing comparisons to a young
Joan Baez or Joni Mitchell. Journey is Gabrielle Louise’s
debut album, a genre-bending mix of folk, roots, pop, and

"Beggar Boy of the North"
This is a re-release of a
"classic" set of recordings made by Greg Stephens for Fellside
Records in 1978. The story behind these recordings is well
documented by Greg in the accompanying 12 page booklet along with
information on the musicians involved, where they are now and indeed
a picture of those young men way back when they made this
recording!. Digital Album
"Shadows in the Light "
North Carolina strummer
and crooner Mark Dougherty makes sadness so sweet. With strong,
jangly guitar work, fine flat-picking, and a voice that mirrors

sensitivity of James Taylor to a modern folk approach and style that
is all his own. Digital Album
