Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter/guitarist Christopher Mansfield, who records under the Fences moniker, has unveiled the music video for "No One" the latest single off his upcoming album 'Bright Soil' due out this fall on Enci Records.

The track evokes a sense of movement and urgency as Manfield revisits his former self. Off the single, Mansfield says, "No One" is a VERY old song. Written when I could fall in love with how a woman rolled a cigarette and a cocaine nose bleed was used to finger paint on a brown grocery bag. In the end, regardless of how relevant the lyrics are to me now in my life is, in fact, irrelevant. Someone else is somewhere else other than me. The song is a gallop that I still resonate with. The tempo is anxious in a way that feels alluring. I'd like to do more songs at this speed." (continue)

Katie Callahan just released her new album "Extraordinary." To celebrate we asked her to tell us about the record's title track. Here is the story:

One of the first songs I worked on for this new project, the genesis of the whole thing and the title track, is called "Extraordinary." The song began as an affirmation for myself, something I wasn't quite sure I believed but felt compelled to articulate so that I could see the words, sing the words, embrace the great contradiction of living as a woman getting older whose experience is at once mundane and miraculous. As a mom and the partner of someone with a very public and essential job, I have grown accustomed over the years to the idea that I always must be okay. That no matter what was going on, what sort of ailment I might have, what my dreams may be, my primary responsibility is to remain afloat and tuck myself into the corners of the very full lives around me. It's an old habit born from being a middle child, an oldest daughter, and a product of late nineties evangelicalism. Writing this song offered the opportunity to declare my inherent worthiness and also lament the areas of my life I've allowed to be stifled. (continue)
