December Additions to the Northeast Ohio Music Collection at the Hiram College Library
We thought we’d post this now, since we won’t be adding any new music to the library’s collection until January. We added quite a few Northeast Ohio items this last month, some of which we are the only library to have (at least for now). These are the older ones we didn’t review.

Neil Zaza. Staring at the Sun. (Akron-born guitar god’s debut album from 1999)
Matt Harmon. Cosmic Yonder. (Singer-songwriter and guitarist’s Kickstarter-funded release)
