    Amplified - That Lonesome Sound: Bye Bye, Clay Farmer Band

    Yield Here - Singer-songwriter Richard Shindell knows to get out of the way of his characters

    Like a good novel, the narrative thrust of Richard Shindell's power folk songs emerges from characters' personalities. Unlike confessional songwriters, who can't seem to get out of the way, even for one line, Shindell creates characters, gives them v...
