The Prospects

Vanity Fair has a story in this month’s issue about folk music featuring a bunch of Annie Leibovitz photo shoots with folk legends and folk newcomers. The Gotham Gal pulled out the page called The Prospects for me. They are Ben Kweller, Adam Green, Becky Stark of Lavender Diamond, and Fionn Regan. Here’s a picture of Annie getting them ready for the shoot on the streets of Brookyn.

If you read this blog, you know we love Ben Kweller, but we had never heard of the others. So using Rhapsody, we created a playlist called The Prospects on our Sonos system and we’ve been listening all afternoon. Here’s the deal.

Adam Green is an acquired taste and I am not sure I’ll acquire it. But he’s funny and fun.

Lavender Diamond is good. I love Becky’s voice.

Fionn Regan is fantastic. Love at first listen.
