Recommended New Releases by Native South Florida Artists

Music vet and New Times scribe Lee Zimmerman offers his insights, opinions, and observations about the local scene. This week: South Florida veteran musicians provide a welcome return.

For all my grousing about the lack of original music here in South Florida, I do have to admit that, over time, there have been some exceptional artists to emerge from our environs.

While national attention has eluded many of the more deserving, that in no way diminishes their efforts. It has prompted some of them to relocate in hopes of finding their fortune elsewhere. So while our loss is some other locale's gain, we can still point to them with pride and refer to them as exceptional alumni.

With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
