Singer Jessie Baylin is longtime BFF to Scarlett Johansson—who makes no bones about standing front-and-center to support her gal pal when she's giggin' in Tinsel Town—and the source of some well-documented inter-band controversy after becoming engaged to Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill. But neither of these associations are at all necessary to make Baylin the belle of the music industry's ball; that she's capable of all on her own. With a hand from Grammy winner Jessie Harris and Whiskeytown's Mike Daly, the blonde bombshell writes love songs with a bite and delivers each of them with a voice that's steeped in twang (a byproduct of her recent relocation to Nashville?) and soulful enough to stand up to Rumours-era Stevie Nicks.

Who knows how long these things will take. The process is an adventure and a mystery in and of itself."

In a candid new interview with Minneapolis-St. Paul's Star Tribune, KISS's former guitarist Ace Frehley reveals he's none too keen on on what KISS are up to now that he's out of the band and doing the solo thing. Here are a couple of savory highlights from the interview ... On having 19 months of sobriety: "That puts a different twist on everything. It's great to wake up without a hangover and not remembering what you did the night before. Life just seems to be getting better all the time." On the current KISS lineup: "The fans don't seem too happy ... What KISS is doing right now reminds me of like what some great fighters have done in the past when they come out of retirement, when they should have just rolled up the towel. That's the way it seems to me now. It's getting embarrassing." Read the complete interview here.

A former member of highly influential but vastly underrated Bay Area bands the Loved Ones, Mover, and Dave Gleason’s Wasted Days, Mike Therieau is an Oakland-based singer-songwriter who blasts passion through his own bluesy, old-school country flavored songs like "Fly Away." His raw voice evokes the Small Faces’ Steve Marriott (with the haircut to match), but it’s his bleak, contemplative mood that carries the music.—Aidin Vaziri
