We are happy to spend some time today with the talented artist Jacob Walters. Thank you for taking time to talk with us. You have a new single out- super exciting.  As an artist attempting to make a connection with audiences, what has been your focus of theme with this album?  The theme is one of asking hard questions. Attacking what may be

One thing is for sure if nothing else – ViennaCC does things his way, consequences be damned. His singles are like nothing else you’ll hear in pop music today and the newest track “When the Cats Come Out” is no different. I appreciate the rambunctious and uncompromising attack he summons for the single. It’s dance-pop, without

No matter who you ask in the industry or where you look, there’s no denying that 2023 has been an exceptionally different year for folk music. It’s like the volume has been turned down and all of what would be the most talked about groups in the United States are more interested in going soft

I’m definitely a fan of how the creative minds behind LVCRFT handle writing a holiday-themed song. There are some listeners who will decide within seconds that they’re hearing a gimmick tune. An attentive listener, however, will hear how producer/songwriter and engineer Peter Wade, songwriter Amanda Warner, and third creative mastermind Evan Bogart breathe magic into V’s

Harry Hochman’s first solo album Inside Out promises to be one of the year’s most fulfilling releases. The title song and first single from the effort promises that alone. “Inside Out” is an invigorating and well-written nod to the Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter’s influences. “Inside Out” invokes echoes of songwriters such as Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, Neil Young,

Ava Della Pietra isn’t just a pretty face. Yes, she’s undoubtedly easy on the eyes, but she’s also a multi-instrumentalist, dynamic singer, and an able writer unafraid to pen her material and lead with it rather than leaning on a bevy of pop song hit doctors to concoct cookie-cutter songs unconnected to her experience. She’s

A seemingly perfect rhythm surrounds fusion tones dressed in the rich melodicism of soul. There’s a pendulousness here, but it’s yet to reveal itself in the strength of the beat. In the center of it all is a soul-driven vocal courtesy of Ashley Hess that could crush just about anything that gets in its path.

Accenting the gilt harmonies with an edge that is strangely as idyllic as the straight-up acoustic parts are, the fretwork in the new single “Rolling Over Me” from Eddie Berman is indeed the perfect complement to our singer’s pipes When he’s got the microphone in front of him in the studio, Berman is a hard

Alias Wayne’s new single “Ms Mystery” is like a musical missive composed at three a.m. in dim light and with the room full of smoke. You can see the blood and feel the flames of human history splattering and charring every passage. This new song from the pen of Ranzel X. Kendrick, otherwise known as

Diane Gentile’s ten-song collection The Bad and the Beautiful builds on a solo career beginning with 2015’s debut Caught in a Wave and shows her creative life with backing band the Gentle Men is in fine fettle. The New York City-based singer/songwriter has shared stages with a wide assortment of songwriting and performing talents ranging from Robert Gordon, Television’s

It’s fair to say that Marc Miner is a bit of an outlaw. Ostracized from America, Miner has long since relocated to Vienna, Austria where he’s carved out a reputation as one of the most convincing purveyors of rough-hewn Americana working today. His 2020 debut Smile When You’re Wasted served notice that his songwriting would always exist

Instrumental depth undeniably matters as much as lyrical perspective does when it comes to making a thoughtful rock n’ roll record no matter the era in discussion, and there’s no getting around the way Alex Lopez prioritizes it in his new album Looking for a Change. Rather than centering all of his prowess on the elegant

You may think love songs are a dime-a-dozen. If you’re like me, you’ve heard SCORES of them. O’Shea proves you wrong, however. The deciding factor separating their stabs in the love song tradition from rote imitators is their sincerity. They draw from their personal story with the new single “Everything Means Nothing” as Mark’s marriage proposal

PRETTY AWKWARD’s Get Weird is a career-defining moment for this Northwest band. The Austin Held and Nicholas Wiggins-led outfit concocted eleven imaginative compositions for this release spanning the gamut from rock, hip-hop, EDM, and pop. They often mix and match those styles synthesizing them into a cohesive whole where the sum is greater than its individual parts.

As the summer begins to wind down, there’s an undeniable sense of Americana impacting indie rock, and for those in search of a prime example of this growing trend, I’d point towards Wreckless Strangers’ new single “Fast Girls.” Both the structure of the song and the original substance itself are primed with a surreal mix,

We are getting to talk with the fun new group DANJO! Welcome. Tell us how you all became DANJO and more about each of you and your breakout into music. (Danny Kensy): Howdy y’all! We’re DANJO! We’re super stoked to be chatting with you. Thanks so much for having us!  It’s pretty simple how we

Welcome to Teyquil. We couldn’t stop tapping our feet when listening to your new hit, “Flashy.” What was your source of inspiration behind this fierce single? Awww, thanks so much for the kind words! My source of inspiration is quite simple, I love 80’s pop and new wave and I feel that era was a

Strikingly bucolic in “Dead Star Light” or surreal to the point of sounding almost entranced in “Fever Dream,” the subtle beats that we hear in the new album Minefields by The One Eighties are never conventional, but they define the very backbone of this record and its most cathartic moments without question.
