AFTER LISTENING TO THE EP OF MARLENE NOTTINGHAM AND HER COVER OF THE EVER FAMOUS LORETTA LYNN’S SONG CALLED “COAL MINERS DAUGHTER, MARLENE DOES AN ADMIRABLE JOB AND THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT MARELENE’S VOICE THAT RINGS TRADITIONAL. Marlene brings in her vocals that arrive with a sound that rings from the past and is quite good. Made me recall and travel back in time. The next song called “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” and Marlene adds her vocals from the past and you can really get a feel of who Marlene is as a singer and what I heard is a voice from the past. Marlene brings this in her vocals added with her musicality for the song itself. After speaking with Marlene she has her heart and expressed sincere feelings for this traditional kind of music that allows you to go back and recall where music had a story to tell. The last song on her EP is a Bobby Bare Song called “500 Miles Away From Home” and once again Marlene fits right in with her vocals that brought me back to those days of country where the beer is always cold and the twang and story telling was all we knew of. All in all the EP has a great sound  and Marlene Nottingham has a feel and has got the pulse on traditional sounding music and I am anxious to hear more of her in the future, where she will allow your ears to hear and experience that unforgettable sound of real country music, where my rests upon this style of country music. I thank Marlene Nottingham for sharing her talented vocals and allowing me to visit the past through her vocal arrangements, where this music lives and adds to the pulse to todays musicians across the vast musical spectrum.

I have a very extensive broadcasting & music back round. With over 30 years experience. I have been nominated for several writing awards (ie) publicist and promoter of the year also, one of the industries most revered music reviewers. I started a writing career, with the idea bringing notice to the industry all music artists, focusing on Indie artists, and many mainstream artists as well. Writing about individuals, from all around the globe, all music genres and remaining consistent with my slogan of "Hearing is Believing", and "All Music Matters and bringing out the "positive" in all artists no matter how small, big or different. I feel all need to be given that chance to be noticed for their talents and allow others to hear, and noticed for their talent. As of date I have written well over 400 music album reviews and continue to acquire more everyday. Some legends, some independent artists. My continuing wish is they get the to share the stage lights within the industry. With making a difference with my "Positive " music reviews through my writing style, about them & for them and reviewing their music always in a "Positive" forum.
