The 2015 Album Buyer's Guide


THE 40 BEST ALBUMS OF 2015
Maia, original art by Chuck Sperry


Thank god for big returns. For a year that saw me launch my largest professional stretch (multiple cities, new markets, new partners, new challenges) and a move and an increased workload, the fact I had not published a Best of 2014 seemed to make this year's list so much more daunting. If you love the list or appreciated a new find, please share your thoughts, it's how we find common ground. 

I absolutely promise you there are some folks in here who make music that will change your life. It already has impacted me. Best to you all in 2016.. Long live our passion for music!

Great! Alabama Shake is already on my musical radar and I love it! Now there is so much more New bands for me to explore in the last few days of 2015,in the Netherlands is not so much New music to add to my /our collection. Keep up the good work with the Outlaw Roadshow.
I wish you a healthy, loving, happy and musical 2016.
