Jenee Halstead (The River Grace)

Jenee Halstead
" The River Grace"
Jenee Halstead puts forth a collection of songs effortlessly suited to her voice, mixing dobro, mandolin, and upright bass with vintage Casio keyboards and subtle electronic beats. From the joyous declarations of “Before I Go” to the tragic balladry of “Darkest Day”; The River Grace’s sound is rooted in the past yet beckons the progression of Americana. Recorded in a small cottage studio called Forgiveness, efM EDITORS CHOICE >>

Brewflies (On The Fly)

" On The Fly"
Brewflies’ latest CD release, On the Fly, showcases many of the styles the band has incorporated into its unique sound. The songs on On the Fly generally reflect Brewflies’ concerns with the life of the planet, the “war on terrorism,” rebellion, death, making love, making music, dubiously sea-worthy crafts, and the joy of solid furniture…(CD and DA)

Janet Russell (Love Songs and Fighting Talk)

Janet Russell
" Love Songs and Fighting Talk"
Janet's long-awaited third album features fine versions of traditional songs including big Child Ballads and some more contemporary songs. Janet's voice features above all and is supported by Steve Tilston's guitar, Tom McCoville's fiddle, Gill Redmond's cello and Najam Javed's tablas. Can this be the first recording of one of Professor Child's collected ballads accompanied by tablas?

Don Dixon (The Nu-Look- Don Dixon and the Jump Rabbits)
Don Dixon
" The Nu-Look- Don Dixon and the Jump Rabbits"
DIXON has this to say about The Nu-Look: "I wanted to make a record like "Disraeli Gears", you know, a power trio album...that's the approach this band has always taken in our live shows...but i knew i didn't want to write a bunch of songs that sounded like i wished i was 25 again..." This is still folk music, get it!

efolkMusic: For Musicians, Not For Profit
     When we started efolkMusic in 1999, we knew that the CD was on the way out, and we always believed that a friction-free, instant-delivery, never out-of-stock downloadable format was going to be the ONLY way for musicians out of the mainstream media to continue to distribute our wares.
     We were way ahead of the curve, of course, as most people didn't know an MP3 from a cucumber back then. Times have changed, haven't they? After a few years of futile resistance, the record labels realized there was no turning back the clock, and that they could still sell music and stiff artists in a digital world.
     So Apple creates a music service to drive sales of iPods, and as a by-product the world got hip to downloading. (I still think Steve Jobs owes efolkMusic for the idea...) Sure they've got millions of tracks, and a slick interface, and sure, you can get a lot of the tracks we offer from them BUT THERE IS A DIFFERENCE!
    More than one, in fact. First off, we offer all of our tracks as un-shackled MP3s (all new tracks are formatted at 192 or 256kbps), no "DRM" to thwart your ability to burn to CD. Secondly, WE PAY ARTISTS FOR EVERY DOWNLOAD SOLD!
Please consider supporting our non-profit- memberships start at just $4.95 a month for 100 downloads from our "Member Download" catalog and a free subscription to our RSS feed "Song of the Week"; annual members get more, a free efM tote-bag, discounts on purchases, and more.
     Join us, help save "the last great pickers on earth...", it feels good and is tax-deductible, to boot!

Exceptional Artists Wanted:
