Time flies by and I’m failing to keep up with all the new releases. I still try to at least until the end of this year. Then I probably close the books for whole January and think things through and decide whether it’s worth it to keep going as usual, if I don’t have the time or energy to do this as well as I would like to. 90% sure that I will continue one way or another, because music means the world to me and songwriters are the people that both a) make the soundtrack for the good times b) carry me through the dark times and convince me that even the longest night eventually leads into daylight.
Kent Eugene Goolsby is a Nashville-based folk / americana singer-songwriter and his new album Temper of the Times came out on November 11th. It’s a very impressive album and during the last few years Kent has grown to become a really great lyricist. Some of the insightful lines in these songs trigger something good in me by making me recognise patterns in my actions (or lack of actions) that don’t make a whole lot sense. Here’s The Stone from the new Kent Eugene Goolsby album. You can buy/hear the whole thing on his Bandcamp.
