WEHM’s New Release Tuesdays

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have been rocking together for more than 30 years, and their latest release, Mojo, continues this trend, illustrated by the track “I Should Have Known It,” which contains balls-out rock and roll and assertive vocals from Petty.

Now-legendary Canadian singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan displays more haunting songcraft on her latest Laws of Illusion and the track “Loving You is Easy,” which has an interesting combination of Beatle-esque song arrangement and a generous helping of her passionate vocals.

Innovative r&b artist Macy Gray’s The Sellout and the track “Beauty in the World” show that she is not taking the usual paths of that genre. There are shades of John Lennon’s “Give Peace a Chance” along with her distinctive, textured soaring vocals delivering an uplifting message.
