When you’ve got the precision attack of Greye, you don’t need much more than a sexy set of chugging riffs to make a hit single even better, and in their new cut “Over My Head,” the Florida-stationed rockers give us what could be some of the heaviest-hitting guitar parts of their career to date. Instead
The new single by R&B Singer/Songwriter, Darrell Kelley, is centered around the case of Ronald Greene. Ronald Greene was a 49 year old, African American male, who died as a result of an altercation with Monroe Police. Kelley’s material is typically based around African American subjects, who lost their lives to alleged police brutality/excessive force.
When I was in high school, I tried to rap and sing the popular Eminem/Rihanna duet “Love the Way You Lie” as part of the talent show. It was as a single person, not as part of a duet, and it went about as well as you’d expect. For most people, there’s generally a strong
Doug Kistner’s talents are enough to win the day for his latest single “Don’t Look Down” but he’s had some skillful assistance helping him this far. The two preceding singles “Only Road I Know” and “Since We Left Our Dreams” scored as major successes for this new solo artist based, in part, on the contributions
I think today, we’re afraid of vulnerability. At the very least, we’re uncomfortable with someone expressing their vulnerability because it’s a brave thing to do. We want to experience these moments in private, and we all know the feeling of finding an album we clutch tightly and feel like it’s speaking to us directly. I’m
Shine Eye Landing, the latest album from Arkansan Billy Jeter isn’t exactly something that’s reinventing the wheel on Country music, but it was never really designed to. It serves as an almost anthology looking into the lived-in moments and thoughts of a third-generation Arkansan with a lot to say in his beating heart. I will
The art of rock ’n’ roll is more than alive and well and that’s thanks to Tedi Brunetti, also appropriately known as the Queen of Pittsburgh. I hadn’t heard much from her before this album, but upon researching her seasoned past tied to the New York City music scene, I came to realize she did
Hughie Mac loves music, and he wants you to love music too, more specifically his music. With his album “Hughie Mac Sings Some Great Songs, Pt.4” he certainly makes a compelling argument as to why you should. With a laid-back crooners sensibility and an eclectic array of classics at his helm, he turns what could
What has been your most favorite compliment about your music? Sometimes it’s someone saying ‘oh you remind me of so-and-so’ and it’s someone I really admire. That is a huge thing. The real truth is when someone calls out a particular element to the recordings, or the arrangements and sonics of the songs because I
It is harder than ever before for a single band or artist to cut through the disorder of modern life. The powers of anyone or group to unity listeners in a common movement or inspire a generation are on the wane, but music retains the potential to entertain and inspire individuals. Rob Alexander’s third studio
Fading Memories is a total vibe Emily! Thank you for taking the interview! Thank you so much! That means so much!!! How did you come up with the inspo for this song? I’ve been a big fan of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin. They had a beautiful way of storytelling through their many collaborations.
The soundtrack to saying goodbye to your troubles and succumbing to the constant groove is the overall vibe in Nightfly’s “Who’s In”. Unmistakably catchy and colored with vibrant jazz, blues and rock tones, “Who’s In” is from the Florida band’s EP But, Wait There’s More. Not just for a Friday night playlist, “Who’s In” conjures up
Not too heavy with the guitar melodies but certainly not stingy in terms of vocal harmonies and classless colloquialisms cowpunk fans will eat up on the spot, I think you could make an entire album around Jesse & The Hogg Brothers’ “Love Buckets” and be more than pleased with the end result. That said, there
In recent years, it feels like there have been more powerful voices to emerge in the rock and alternative rock scenes than ever before. One artist that has emerged as a unique and defining voice is Washington D.C.’s WRYT. The artist behind the name is Mychael Wright and his two-song self-titled debut EP features the songs “Ivory Tower” and
Have you performed Live yet? YES! We played out in San Bernardino (Redlands) at the original Mission (historical site) that was setup way back in the day. It actually SOLD OUT. It sure was an honor to play our first official gig out and have it be sold out. What is the best part of performing
Guitarist Russell “Hitman” Alexander’s East Coast based act The Hitman Blues Band enjoys one of the best reputations in the best bands in the blues scene. Their popularity as both a live and recording outfit sets them apart from many other acts; it is a genre where bands building their act around ransacking the genre’s
The amazing thing about Jeff Coffey is that with his voice he can sculpt any song into a momentous, hit-making experience. Be it ballad or a full-court press pop rock song, Coffey brings a distinct harmony to every note. In the triumphant album This Time Around Coffey once again proves time and time again his voice is
Hello! Thank you for speaking with me today! Thanks for inviting me to interview! You just released your single, are releasing a video, and then an album! Congrats! What should we know about it? This album has creatively been in the works for about 2 years now. I came up with the idea to do
Richard Metzger, of Channel 4 TV, Britain makes an unusual claim: “I have met God, and he lives in Brooklyn….Howard Bloom is next in a lineage of seminal thinkers that includes Newton, Darwin, Einstein, Freud, and Buckminster Fuller. He is going to change the way we see ourselves and everything around us.” Metzger is right.
You can trace several recurring themes in Sam Green’s songwriting. The Australian-born poet and composer embraces Americana forms, without question, but there’s likewise a strong sense of place, even regionalism, present in his writing. Melodic abundance is a key component of Sam Green’s art but, as well, his willingness to broach any subject with equal
