Connor Garvey singing Monster opens this free sampler from Mishara Music a company specializing in Singer Songwriters.

Very nice singular vocal on guitar driven cool folk song w/superior lyrics, excellent expansion in volume and depth. Nearly 6 minutes long enjoyed every second.

Track 2 is Barnaby Bright with Gravity. Celtic sounding female vocal starts, probably 2 guitars, male singer joins in (they are a duo), folk sound. To my ignorant ear sounds more like they are battling vocals than harmonizing. Still good song.

Peter Bradley Adams with My Love Is My Love. Almost morose plodding sound and vocal. Not for me.

Dawn Kinnard with My Favorite Ghost. Simple song and shallow vocal along with upbeat pop backing.

Track 5 is Thift Store Pollack by Merlowe and the Dry Tear. Shallow experimenting Beatles vibe, very thin vocal and sound probably should listen to more of their songs.

WPA (Works Progress Administration) play Rise Up. Slow mellow strong vocal over subdued music. The singer is the song with little to say except the song title.

Colin Devlin plays Raise The Dead. Folk Rock sound breathy male vocal over busy sounds and real band playing slow but strong. Nice.

Track 8 is Poor Old Town by Kat Maslich Bode. Country feel on nice tune tripping along. Story telling song over steady backing sound. Like it.

Last track is Jason Spooner with Seed In The Ground. Nice folkie song upbeat simple lyric and pickin' guitar.

Mostly Folk with touch of Country on these 9 singer songwriter tunes. Cool mellow songs nothing wrong with them.

This is a very nice sampler. Now I've looked over many many of Amazon's free sampler's over the course of time. And from time to time I would download a track here, download a track there. But this is the first time I can remember that i've downloaded the entire sampler.

Like most music fan's I know what I like and what stands out for me. Having said that I must say that the Mishara sampler is exceptional because I liked very track! When is the last time that this has been the case for most people?

Also I do appreciate that Amazon offers these free samplers because it allows music lovers to discover new music,and artists. This in turn creates fanbases for artists that many of us would not have known about otherwise. so if you enjoy this genre of music I believe you will enjoy this!

Reminds me of Fionn Regan, Feist, and other easy going artists- but all acoustic! God, they make me listen to XM Radio's Coffee House at work; I think I have Stockholm syndrome because I love this. And also, unlike Coffee House, it's not John Mayer covering Sting. As a folk fan, gotta recommend this sampler as a really good one.

I don't write reviews often, but this Sampler is so good I had to review it. Usually when I download free samplers after listening to the song samples I end up not liking at least a couple of the songs not nearly as much as I expect to. When I listened to this Sampler in full I liked it more than I expected to. I recognized some of the artists before I downloaded it so I knew that it would probably be better than some of the other samplers, but I like some of the artists I didn't recognize even more than those that I did. A great sampler makes you want to buy more music from the artists featured and that's what this sampler does.

This is great music. I listen to it while working and it is very enjoyable. The vocals are great especially Barnaby Bright.

This is not the best of the Mishara samplers but it it's pretty darn good.
This album did accomplish one thing. It lead me to another group & album which came out back in 2009 but I never knew of it.
The track that caught my ear was "Rise Up" which I thought sounded a lot like Glen Phillips.
A little research revealed that "Rise Up" is actually a track from the group Works Progress Administration(WPA)'s album titled WPA(which sounds like an album I'll be purchasing)
WPA includes
Glen Phillips, vocals on this track (Toad the Wet Sprocket) - vocals, guitar
Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek, Fiction Family) - guitar, vocals
Luke Bulla (Jerry Douglas Band, Ricky Skaggs) - fiddle, vocals, guitar
Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek) - fiddle, vocals
Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) - piano, organ
Greg Leisz (Joni Mitchell, Wilco, Sheryl Crow, Beck) - pedal steel
Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Imposters, Randy Newman) - drums
Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello and the Imposters, Cracker) - bass

One other track I enjoyed very much was
"Poor Old Town" a track by Kat Maslich Bode who sounds a whole lot like Rosanne Cash.

Thanks Mishara for providing these samplers.

I was amazed at the great quality and variety I got on ALL the Mishara music samplers. I downloaded them to have on my work computer for the front office while clients wait. The music is not too raucous, not too "elevator" but just the right mix of folksy, bluesy, slightly pop-py, alternative that anyone can either listen to, or allow to serve as background music.
