Music & Musicians

In our Scene section we explore a variety of aspects of the music and examine those who play and write it, including:

How the Song Came to Be: The ways in which songs are inspired and get written are many and myriad. In these stories we recount the origins and creation of classic songs.

If You Like…: Today’s new artists often recall, remind of and/or are influenced by past acts. Here we profile emerging bands and solo artists and cite such references to help guide listeners to sounds they may enjoy.

Key Players: Master musicians often make a critical difference in the sound and feel of a recording or live performance. Our Key Players articles identifies those gifted instrumentalists and the talents they bring to the sessions and shows on which they play.
