1 Brandi Carlile: The Firewatcher’s Daughter

(album review)

Buy @ Amazon

Brandi Carlile Official Site

I debated including the Muruch-curated albums, but they are truly the two albums I have listened to most frequently and loved most intensely this year. Besides, it’s the artists and their music that make them so undeniably spectacular. I was just the DJ. That being said, every time I’ve been asked during the year what I think my #1 album of 2015 would be, my immediate answer has been: “Brandi Carlile’s The Firewatcher’s Daughter.” I love it more with each listen and it has the timelessness of the greatest classic albums.

Allison Crowe: New Album & Video

Muruch.com’s musical mascot, Allison Crowe, never stops. She has a new album, a new video, a new band and new pink hair. Allison just released Newfoundland Vinyl 3 (review forthcoming) and the new, live-with-band video of “You All Haunt Me” below.

Muruch.com Presents: Allison Crowe Album Announcement & Cover Art!

I’m very excited to announce the upcoming release of Muruch.com Presents: Allison Crowe – a collection of Allison Crowe’s best songs curated by Muruch! The album also features cover art created by yours truly.

Canadian singer-songwriter Allison Crowe has long been Muruch’s musical mascot, so it seemed fitting to celebrate her music along with Muruch.com’s 15th anniversary.

Our Muruch.com for RAINN benefit album and fundraising project was born from plotting this collection with Allison Crowe’s incredibly encouraging “personable manager” Adrian. I hope the two Allison-centric releases are the first of many Muruch.com-curated albums.

Following is Allison Crowe’s official press release for the upcoming Muruch.com Presents: Allison Crowe, set for tentative release at the end of the month….
