CRAIG FINN (The Hold Steady)
Playing songs from his debut solo album “Clear Heart Full Eyes”, which Craig describes as juxtaposed and influenced by Friday Night Lights, a TV show that excited and moved him and also happened in Texas, where he recorded this fine album. Craig says "'Clear Heart' signifies honesty and transparency, and 'Full Eyes' suggests experience. Thus, the album is about being optimistic and open without succumbing to the weariness or doubt that comes with age and experience." To him, that is what it's all about.

What happens when your band’s debut album is a run-scoring hit with both music and baseball fans? If you’re The Baseball Project, you grab some friends to fill out your bench, take batting practice by writing songs for ESPN and deliver a strikeout pitch with Volume Two: High and Inside. The new album from Steve Wynn, Scott McCaughey, Linda Pitmon and Mike Mills (R.E.M) is another winning collection of songs about the game’s greats that will be pleasing to those who love America’s pastime — and fans of intelligent, melodic and fun rock.
