Moose Gronholm's Profile

Moose Gronholm

Moose is originally from Chicago. The river's howl and the string band music brought him here via steel horse known as a Ford Taurus in 2011. He found the pen and word before he could play a note on a guitar. He experiences life and writes about it. See the country and of its wondrous places. Those are his two mottos. He loves Whitman, Thoreau, Emerson, and Kerouac, Shakespeare, Dr. Seuss, Alcott, and Atwood. That's Moose, a simple dude who loves music and writing, and his family.

An Interview with Photographer Lisa Sullivan

"I love people. I have never met a stranger. I appreciate learning about people, helping people when I can and belonging to a community. I enjoy making people laugh, especially catching them off guard with a laugh, having a candid moment. I think that's why the photography plays a big part of who I am."

The Tillers: The Album

A band of brothers and a band that, in my opinion, is the epitome of do-it-yourself and one that personifies the punk rock that shaped them as humans and musician’s, they are The Tillers.

Review: JD Wilkes & The Legendary Shack Shakers

The Legendary Shack Shakers with JD Wilkes have been around since 1996. Their raucous shows have made them truly legendary. The show is something one has to experience to truly understand. Anyone that has seen them, myself included, these guys stick with you. With JD as their front man he is every bit a show man, and true artist to form. The man did get his degree in art from Murray State, and he has certainly put it to use.

Ben Miller Band: Choke Cherry Tree

Ben Miller Band has been at this since 2005. They hail from Joplin, Missouri in the heart of the Midwest, and their music unabashedly up front and honest. They have a few albums under their belts at this point. Most notably an album aptly dubbed Record for Joplin in which the album is a tribute to all of those that suffered through the devastating tornado in 2011.

Album Review: Warrick & Lowell

For a few years now Warrick & Lowell have been gigging around our Queen City. Playing the Southgate House or The Crow's Nest along with playing the Whispering Beard Folk Festival, and now, finally, they have a put out an album of eight cut your teeth on country tunes. The wait is finally over and they truly make the old saying real "patience is a virtue beholden by few." They truly made it worth it.

My Year in Review

When the year began there was much in the way. The one constant though, and as always was music. There is so much music out there, and so much yet to come. Here it is, enjoy, take a listen, and hope you dig it.

Review: Redemption & Ruin by The Devil Makes Three

The Devil Makes Three are a three piece. You could consider them a power trio, sure, the drums and loudness are exchanged for fiddle and the acoustic instruments that comprise most old timey or folky music. TDMT’s new release is “Redemption and Ruin”; the title is certainly telling considering the song choices.

The War and Treaty: Down to the River

The War and Treaty are Tanya Blount and Michael Trotter Jr. You can catch them this Saturday at MOTR Pub! Their latest album is Down to the River, and I’m not sure there is a duo out there right now that takes vocals to the place that these two do or that takes roots sound and that have churned it into what they have created.
