Calexico and Mary J. Blige

These are just a couple of the dozens of articles I wrote for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel during the 1990s and 2000s as one of their main freelance music reviewers. (Click on the image to view as a separate jpg and you can zoom.)

Others (off the top of my head) include the White Stripes, Silver Sun Pickups, Dave Matthews Band, the Foo Fighters, Cake, Mana, Insane Clown Posse, Juanes, Alison Krauss and Union Station, David Grisman, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Babyface, Lenny Kravitz, Kid Rock, Pat Methany, Sufjan Stevens, Greg Brown, King Sunny Ade, T.I. and many others. Tina Maples was the editor for most of them, one of the most professional, straight-shooting journalists I’ve worked with.
