Small Town Sound – Whiskey – Single Review

Yeeeeeehaw! That’s a lot of recognition! That probably means they’re doing something right then, so let’s take a closer look at Small Town Sound. Their single “Whiskey” starts off like a sad country tune that isn’t going to go anywhere fast…WRONG! Small Town Sound   The band is working hard and recently recorded three songs with Mr. […]

LA Knights – Psycholanalyze – Single Review

From the first downbeat on “Psychoanalyze” the music is heavy and raw. Motley Crue is the first influence that comes to mind when trying to think of a comparison. The guitars are distorted, the drums are big and loud, and the vocals mix in well. Honesty time, at first this band didn’t appeal to me very […]

Jack The Radio – Badman – Single Review

Formed in 2005 as a collaborative project between roommates, Jack the Radio is the brainchild of seasoned songwriters George Hage and A.C. Hill.

AV Super Sunshine – Review

For 15 years he made no music whatsoever. AV wears his heart firmly on his sleeve, as he recounts the missing portion of his life.”I got really sick, I didn’t realize how sick I was. I kind of hit bottom in 2009, and that’s when I was diagnosed with severe depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress syndrome and bi-polar disorder”. […]
