  • Susan Boyle “Hope” Album Review

    Susan Boyle's rise to fame is a story of grace. Born in Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland, Boyle was unemployed and taking care of her aging mother full time. Though she has had a rich and expressive voice, no one thought she was anything more than the lady who volunteered at church. Read More

  • Martin Smith "Back to the Start" Album Review

    One of the saddest events in 2009 was the demise of Delirious(?).
