Billy Bragg was recently described by The Times newspaper as a “national treasure.” In the two decades of his career, Bragg has certainly made an indelible mark on the conscience of British music, with a legacy that’s brought Bragg fans the world over. He released his first new studio album in five years this past March, and has embarked on a tour that will take him across the world, from small venues like The Space in Evanston, Illinois to large music halls such as the Royal Festival Hall in London, England.
Singer/songwriter Joe Purdy released his 10th album “Last Clock on the Wall” on March 17th, 2009 at 4:00 in the morning, because that is when he finished it. Purdy releases his albums on his independent label, Joe Purdy Records, and with the help of national TV placements and a grassroots fan base, has been able to sell a staggering 800,000 direct track downloads in the US on Itunes without ever signing to a label.
