They say fame changes people, but even after winning “American Idol” and releasing a platinum-selling album, Leesburg, Ga.-based singer-songwriter Phillip Phillips wants nothing more than to be himself. “I already knew what kind of artist I was and knew what type of music that was 'me,'” Phillips said on the phone recently while on tour in Buffalo, N.Y. Phillips - who is co-headlining Merriweather Post Pavilion with O.A.R. on Saturday - took the “Idol” crown in 2012 after wowing judges and viewers with his commanding vocals and guitar playing.

Here in Baltimore for the first time in the better part of two decades on what's ostensibly a promotional tour for their latest release, "Away From the World," the Dave Matthews Band played a set sprinkled with only a handful of obligatory tracks from the album last night at 1st Mariner Arena. The rest of the nearly three-hour concert was a reach into the band's early discography that left the crowd cheering till it was hoarse. Matthews came out before the show to introduce The Lumineers ("not that they need it," he remarked)

UNDER THE TABLE AND DREAMINGDave Matthews Band (RCA 66449)Even though the Dave Matthews Band owes its live stage reputation to the free-wheeling interplay it exhibits onstage, what makes "Under the Table and Dreaming" such a stunning debut is the strength of the group's material. It isn't just that the songs are catchy; Matthews handles their lithe, supple melodies with such ease that the music flows like conversation, pulling the listener along as effortlessly as if he or she were a participant.

Dave Matthews and Tim ReynoldsLive at Luther College (RCA/Bama Rags 67755)Because the Dave Matthews Band boasts both deep jazz roots and distinctive instrumental voices, the group is often lumped in the jam band movement. Among critics, this is done as an act of dismissal, the presumption being that any band with decent songs wouldn't need to waste so much time on improvisation.Fans of the Matthews Band counter that the solos are secondary -- it's the songs that matter most. But because the Matthews Band's recordings are so full of instrumental flash, it's hard to imagine how those songs would sound stripped to just guitar and voice.

It's easy to leap to the wrong conclusions about the Dave Matthews Band.Because this quintet includes four exceptional instrumentalists, a lot of critics have called it a jam band. For them, the heart of the band lies with the lock between Carter Beauford's powerfully polyrhythmic drumming and Stefan Lessard's lithe, melodic bass-lines, or with the way Leroi Moore's jazzy sax solos contrast against the blues-to-bluegrass fiddling of violinist Boyd Tinsley. As these folks see it, the songs exist only to give the soloists something to play with.

In an article in Wednesday's Today section, two members of the Dave Matthews Band were misidentified. Boyd Tinsley is the violinist, and Leroi Moore plays saxophone.The Sun regrets the error.Dave Matthews is in a confessional mood.He's not entirely sure why. "I don't know why I'm confessing all of this," he says, over the phone from his Nashville hotel room. "You're not my analyst."Still, he feels the need to unburden himself about the indulgences of the day before. "I spent the day off yesterday just in my room, reading," he says.

Some people think rock stardom is all about image and attitude, a simple matter of translating teen desires into something visible, imitable and marketable. Others think it's a matter of the message, of being able to say the right thing at the right time to the right audience.Me, I think rock stardom is mostly musical. Because no matter how strong an act's image or message may be, it's almost impossible to hit the big time without a strong sound. If, on the other hand, the music is catchy, compelling and distinctive, a band with no message or image to speak of could easily grab the brass ring -- and carry it away.

Almost 1,000 people mill around inside Rams Head Live waiting for the show to start. They're young, either fresh into or just out of college, and dressed like faux hippies and pseudo punk-rockers. A night of Sublime is on the way, though the California reggae/punk trio broke up almost 10 years ago after lead singer and guitarist Brad Nowell overdosed on heroin. Instead, the headliner is Badfish, a four-piece Sublime tribute band that will crank out 30 or 35 covers in an hour or two. And the crowd, most of whom never saw Sublime live, will eat it up. Badfish is one of hundreds of tribute bands touring the country playing another group's music.
