Well, We have been doing a little renovating here and hopefully it will bring some organization to the house that music built. We now have separate headers for the different articles here. Just Saying is the go to place where you can find artists spilling the beans on what makes their creative wheels spin. The Listening Room is just that, a place for new notable releases. Playing With Fire is all about live performance. Rippling Waters is my space to talk about things that matter, and how music intersects and colors life. I hope you enjoy. New posts on the way soon!
Greetings! Just a quick blurb to tell you that The Flame Still Burns is going to be undergoing a little face lift in the coming weeks. I want to break things out into an easier format, separating live reviews from interviews, album reviews from articles. That sort of thing. And to make it easier to search the site and connect the dots. So if it seems I have been neglecting the writing, I haven't, I have just had to put other things first temporarily. So thank you for stopping by, we aren't going away, we're just remodeling the house that music built.
