I just saw Rian Adkinson play

I just saw Rian Adkinson play at the mission the other night and was blown away. i had never heard him or seen him before and i have to say i was not disappointed. Augusta has needed a breath of fresh air for a long time and i think he is it, a cool voice,very different,great use of melody . i used to be a fan of will mcranies but his songs got old,they seemed to have no stucture,but he's still a great musician.Edison Project,bright guys, i wish them the best of luck. Allison Foster, u are MELLISSA ETHERIDGE! i wish all of you good luck

I have to say that this whole

I have to say that this whole songwriter thing is a brilliant idea, kudos to mr uhles, im a musician myself and i think its a great chance to hear new talent . I just wanted to leave a comment about songwriter Rian Adkinson, i heard his music for the first time on THE RADAR, a show on 95 rock that is devoted to up and coming bands and musicians throughout the US . they played his song RADIO SILENCE , and i had to pull the car over and pay attention . this guy is gooood. i went to his site downloaded all his songs , i am a mega fan now.

Eryn Eubanks a BRILLIANT AND

Eryn Eubanks a BRILLIANT AND CLASSY musician songwriter.In my estimation she is TALENTED far beyond any other competition. I am in awe of ERYN's ability to reach into the very sole of the listner and to express with her music their innermost thoughts , feelings and passions. If you stop and listen to Eryn's music you may hear the voice of God speaking to YOU. What an awsome experience!
