Davell and Pres Hall Got Personality

There's a lot to be said for being yourself. In the case of Davell Crawford, I'm not sure he can be anything else. He took 14 years between albums, which says he's following any well-worn career script. On My Gift for You (Basin Street), he seizes the opportunity and unloads 15 songs that take well more than an hour to run through, in the process honoring as many of his gifts as possible.

Hangout Music Festival Day 1

[Updated] Yesterday marked the kickoff of Hangout Music Festival as ten of thousands of festivals goers rushed the beach at Gulf Shore, Alabama for a music festival that takes place just feet away from the Gulf of Mexico. This all-ages festival brought a diverse group of people together to experience live music on the beach and in the sand, making for a unique experience for music lovers. It sets the ambience for an easygoing weekend, where you can set your own pace.
