cherry-budsSprouting Seeds
The signs of spring are small, but apparent.  The cherry buds have appeared, and the trees are preparing to burst into bloom.  Rogue days of warmth are teasing us with hints of April.  Yes, the cold season is almost over!  And just as nature prepares its annual act, the music industry springs into action.  The bulk of this year’s spring music is bunched into a short frame at the end of March, but it’s a great slate, samples of which are included below.  We’re only able to review a fraction of what we receive, so this page is our way to help our readers to preview as much upcoming music as possible, all in one place.  A melodious March to all ~ may your next favorite album be found right here!
