Joe Piket has established himself well enough as, performer, bandleader and musician that he can pull something like this off. His new single “Talk Like a Musician” is a rare bird nowadays, a “spoof” or parody song, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it has scant musical value. Piket’s far too good to

If there’s ever been a demand for feel-good music, it’s now. With so much discord and strife dominating the eleven o’clock news and our daily lives, Lavendine knows they don’t have to do much to give the world just the kind of pick-me-up we’ve all been aching for amid an endless pandemic and political chaos

How are you feeling about this year’s music you’ve put out so far?  I feel great! I think, even if it didn’t get a million streams, all of the songs showed a different side of me and showed my range. The year is coming to an end! What are you doing in these last few

What has been your most favorite compliment about your music? Hearing that my music is uplifting to people is one of my favorite compliments so far! Who do you make your music for?  My goal with my music is that it’s healing or helps inspire people on their own healing journey. So I guess that

What has been your most favorite compliment about your music? My most favorite compliment about my music probably has something to do with the idea that it sounds English and sounds like it’s from the 60’s. I’m a forever-fan of the British invasion and an advocate for integral English songwriters of the time like Syd Barrett,

As a whole, the music industry is going through rough times right now, but things are starting to look a lot brighter towards the end of 2021 than they did at the halfway point in 2020. Rock is slowly but surely getting back on its feet with and without the presence of live music, and

Tash Hagz is a British based Singer/Songwriter, who pontificates his status as being, a “part time,” musician. While it may be a tongue in cheek description, it’s also more than possible that Music is simply a hobby for Tash. The only caveat is that he is really good at it. His newest single, “The Ballad

The guitar is as legendary as the rock n’ roll music it shaped at the fingertips of so many countless axmen, and in Lisa Johnson’s fascinating new book Immortal Axes, the six-string is celebrated in a manner that tells the story of its players with little embellishment to get in the way. Johnson doesn’t just

Elegance, rousing and even enigmatic – the sound of the flute can elicit a plethora of tones. In the new album, Forever, Bill McBirnie proves just why he’s one of the world’s best flutists. McBirnie, with songwriter Bruce Jones and bassist Robin Latimer cultivates an elevated mix of airy undertows, enchanting rhythms and colorful waves. Forever doesn’t

How are you feeling about this year’s music you’ve put out so far?  I’m feeling pretty good about all of it. Date Night was released back in June and “Drunk” will be released next month. I’ve got more songs that I’d like to release but I’m really trying to master all of the back-end processes.

What was it like the first time you realized music is what you wanted to do as your life’s work?  I think when I’m doing music or anything that energizes that same creative mindset for me, that’s when I’m thriving. I think I realized that a few years ago and that’s when I decided if

But seriously, encountering us with everything from strutting blues guitars to reggae-style grooves, pop melodies, folky harmonies, and lyrical content that recalls the rebelliousness of an early Bob Dylan at times, Neal Fox had an ambitious plan for his new album, and he went all the way with it in Unhinged. Due to be released this

“Blue Horizon” begins Marla Lewis’ new album Songbook on a definite optimistic note. It isn’t the musical equivalent of wearing rose colored glasses, Lewis retains a mature point of view throughout, but it’s a track bursting with the same welcoming mood pervading much of her new release. The guitar is especially strong. It isn’t a consistent presence

From his album Dream Out Loud, singer/songwriter Rob Alexander introduces the world to “Olivia”. Knowing full well that he’s having trouble shaking her from his mind, the same holds true for the listener. “Olivia” is a pop flavoring that has jazzy and funky leanings. Alexander’s natural harmony, and catchy hooks make “Olivia” a hum along, tap

The Christmas album is a tried and true staple of the music industry. Seemingly you’re almost not considered a true professional artist until you’ve done one, and by all accounts it’s a seemingly clinical affair. For every authentic Bing Crosby style release, there’s 5 that are wretchedly cynical. It’s somewhat understandable however, writing an original
