2015 in music (my faves)

Written by Mike Dow

'What? No Adele?' I imagine an uber-fan of the wildly popular British vocalist and songwriter saying while scanning the list below for her latest, '25.' I pretty much love everything about Adele, but I honestly haven't heard the new album yet. 'He should be beaten in the kidney with a tree branch,' the uber-fan is now saying.

I have plenty of catching up to do, but that's one of the great things about music there is no expiration date. If it's good, I'll find it. Now that I've unloaded that caveat, I'm excited to share with you the 2015 titles that are still in heavy rotation at my house.

Ramsay's Custom Guitars

BANGOR You would be forgiven for not knowing that Kirk Ramsay spends his spare time crafting custom-made guitars in the basement of Bangor Window Shade and Drapery. He's the kind of guy who enjoys making them, but isn't one to brag. You'd notice a certain stylistic theme when you walked into his office the one with about a dozen different guitars hanging from the wall all his work, all different, all awesome.

It's a great time to be Nils Lofgren. One year after issuing a 10-disc career-spanning retrospective ('Face The Music' copies of which are personally autographed), the multi-instrumentalist and member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band since 1984 has just released 'UK2015 Face The Music Tour,' featuring 15 carefully chosen live solo tracks recorded at various UK venues last winter.

To support the new disc, Lofgren scheduled a series of dates across the US for first part of 2016 that are now being rescheduled as a result of Springsteen's sudden decision to hit the road in support of 'The Ties That Bind: The River Collection,' a 4-CD/3 DVD (or 2 Blu-ray) set rounding up the music recorded by Bruce and the E Street Band for 1980's 'The River.' including a wealth of previously unreleased audio and video.

Union House Band The Rise of Bent Bowler'

Written by Mike Dow

Sometimes, the tastiest grooves are home-cooked. That is certainly the case for Bangor-based Union House Band on their second album, 'The Rise of Bent Bowler.'

The band, composed of Rick Bruns (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Greg Lunn (vocals, guitar) and Chas Bruns (vocals, bass, drums), navigates a variety of styles ranging from rock and folk to pop, blues and even a modern day sea chantey among the album's 12 original songs.

An Overnight Low rise with Piccadilly'

Written by Mike Dow

For their sophomore release, 'Piccadilly,' Portland-based band An Overnight Low continue a musical love letter begun early last year with their debut record, 'Euston.'

Led by songwriter and bassist Chad Walls, An Overnight Low pulls musical inspiration from a variety of shared loves but it's Walls' story that forms the basis of the band's planned trilogy of albums.

Steve Hackett of Genesis and GTR

Written by Mike Dow

If progressive rock had a Mount Rushmore, we would surely see Steve Hackett's face carved there.

As lead guitarist for Genesis (1970-1977) and cofounder (with Steve Howe of Yes and Asia) of short-lived mid-80s super group' GTR, Steve Hackett's influence is vast. From Phish, Van Halen, Queen and Rush to Kate Bush, Trans-Siberian Orchestra , Porcupine Tree and Spock's Beard Hackett's impact ripples through them all.
