Wabi Sabi puts the groove down with ‘The Love Insane LP’

The jam band genre is one I’m familiar with the least. However, as an avid concert goer. I have seen a lot of jam bands perform. Performing live is a jam band’s natural habitat. How they play off of each other’s energy on stage is electric. Atlanta native’s Wabi Sabi knows this all too well. They’ve been together […]

Tim James and The Very Special Guests debut is very special indeed.

Our connection to music is special. How that connection changes over time, our journey. Edmonton Canada resident, Tim James is a great example. A veteran multi-instrumentalist / studio producer. Taking the reins as band leader felt natural. Tim James tapped his fellow musicians for assistance in the studio. Those who assisted were dubbed “The Very Special […]

Originally from New York, David Vogel also made the move down south. Speaking of moves, he’s made a few. Appearing on The Voice, a recently signed a pub/ production […]

NYC native’s Playing In Traffic has been together for 14 years. Through their highs and lows, they have stayed together […]

‘Our Troubled Hearts’ flies high by Jason Bradley.

A lifelong dedication to music will require overcoming obstacles. Maybe you started on one instrument but adapting meant learning others. Music lifers will wear many hats. At some point, the idea of “I’ll start my own band” takes hold. Thanks to technology, I find there are more musicians throwing their hats into the ring.  Minneapolis Minnesota […]

‘Epilogue’ is Rockford Road’s final act

Rockford Road are Virginia residents who have devoted their sound to classic rock. Since 2016 they have been churning out music. They rally for one last hurrah. Epilogue will be their fourth and final album. I must confess, I was unsure as to the definition of epilogue and looked it up. Epilogue is the perfect word to […]

James Keen’s ‘Falling or Flying’ single awakens the soul.

The covid lockdown has become a bit of our very own K/T boundary. Even though covid’s impact affected everyone differently. That indelible line of pre / post covid will remain forever. Who you became post lockdown has become a defining moment. James Keen speaks of looking inward during the time the world paused. Many others did […]
