The highly anticipated third season of fantasy drama American Gods had its world premiere this month.

After a two year break the show is back on our screens via Starz in the US, where it premiered 10 January, and with a worldwide release on Amazon Prime Video the following day.

Pose star Dominique Jackson joins the cast as Ms World, a new incarnation of the leader of the new gods, Mr World.

The series is based on the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name and follows former convict Shadow Moon, who is told his wife has been killed in a car accident only days before his scheduled release from prison.

A series of events delays his trip home, including a meeting with the mysterious Mr Wednesday, who offers Shadow a job to be his driver, assistant and bodyguard.

Shadow then finds himself in a hidden world where magic is real and the Old Gods fear irrelevance in the face of the growing power of the New Gods, which leaves him struggling to accept this new world and his place in it.

The latest season and third overall follows Shadow as he moves to Lakeside, Wisconsin under a new name to hide from the New Gods and assert himself as his own man. But while there he uncovers a dark secret exploring questions of his own divinity.

American Gods stars Ricky Whittle as Shadow, perhaps best known for his role as Calvin Valentine in soap Hollyoaks, Ian McShane from John Wick and Pirates of the Caribbean as Mr Wednesday and Emily Browning from Sucker Punch and A Series of Unfortunate Events as Laura.

Across the three seasons there is also notable guest stars including Pose star and icon Dominique Jackson, Kristin Chenoweth, Marilyn Manson, Denis O’Hare, Betty Gilpin, Gillian Anderson and Crispin Glover to name a few.

Since its release in 2017 the show has received positive reviews from critics and has racked up a number of big award nominations including two Emmys. It’s also proved to be a ratings success, with a fourth season already in development.

A new episode will be released weekly on Starz in the US and Amazon Prime Video in the UK and worldwide. You can stream the series with an Amazon Prime membership which costs £7.99 per month and comes with a free seven-day trial.

Pamela Means and The Reparations
Live At Northfire
Six tracks of mastery on full display

Pamela Means’s growing audience continues groove and get woke

PAMELA MEANS, acclaimed singer-songwriter, jazz musician, and activist, has released, Pamela Means and The Reparations, “Live at Northfire,” her tenth album. An in-studio performance, recorded live, for a small group of fans, at Northfire Recording, in Amherst, MA.

“Live at Northfire” showcases six Pamela Means original songs. Primarily, politically-charged indictments of our sociopolitical landscape plus a dose of romantic reprieve from two mesmerizing ballads. For Means, an artist known for mastering many musically diverse projects with ease, this is the first release with a new empowered trio. A live set of punchy protest songs, primal, funky, focused grooves, and sultry queer love songs that will surely send a listener adrift on a soulful journey, soothing and searing, yet, still, speaking truth to power.

Pamela Means’s clever, concise lyrics, tender to raging vocals, and fleet-fingered fretwork are elevated with the thick bottomed bass lines, infectious conga beats and lush, velvet harmonies of bassist, Cinamon Blair, and, percussionist, I-SHEA. Pamela Means puts her gentle wit, big loving spirit and powerful songwriting to work for peace in the world. She just keeps getting better and better. Her voice is strong, her musicality is entertaining and her commitment to peace is deep, genuine and consistent.
