    TajMo (Concord Records ). Review by Michelle Wilson.

  • Owl City

    Owl City

    Owl City brings fan-friendly melodies, moody lighting, and hologram rappers (!?!) to Orlando’s House of Blues. Stan Kruslicky can get down with the tunes and the lights, but draws the line at holographic musicians onstage.

  • Life

    Life

    A creative genius, cultural icon, guitar hero, all of that and more. Keith Richards’s Life is as compelling as its subject.

    Low Vs. Diamond

    It takes some serious skills to make moody, indie rock sound new and fresh, but Low Vs. Diamond does just that. Jen Cray was wooed by their swagger and elegance at a recent Orlando date.

  • John Mayer

    John Mayer

    Throwaway love songs with cheesy choruses and soft vocals are what the radio listeners want, and so John Mayer has delivered. Jen Cray was more interested in the blues side of his music that shone forth at his Orlando concert.
