As much as Wino deserves his doom godfather status for fronting groups like The Obsessed and Saint Vitus, there’s something to be said for his more recent singer/songwriter excursions. Whether going it alone or with such collaborators as Conny Ochs, the acoustic style suits him surprisingly well and the volume contrast brings a fuller perspective to his haggard lifer persona. This is especially true for his third album, Forever Gone (Ripple Music), which may be his most low-key effort to date. Continue reading

William DuVall has already made a splash as a solo artist that looks to see him step out from his other gig as the co-lead singer of Alice In Chains. His first solo album, One Alone, is an all-acoustic affair. As William describes it, “I felt the need to peel everything back. This album is strictly one voice, one guitar.
