Dorsten’s “To the River”

Rolling out of the speakers with an angelic ease that is indebted as much to college radio indie rock as it is the bucolic balladry of an old school hipster folk movement in the American underground, the central harmony in Dorsten’s “To the River” is reason enough to pick up this new track from the acclaimed crossover duo this fall. Blending Americana with strong pop/rock aesthetics and a talent for…

Checking in with The Lori P. Davis Project

What was behind the scenes like for “Hell 2 Pay”? Exciting! Fun for all. Watching actors act and being able to take control of the story line was really the coolest. How do your personal experiences shape your songs? By a few bad break-ps. Seems like writing about them tends to make me feel better. What are your favorite topics to write about? Breakups and also issue songs in regards…

A few moments with Andrew X

Who are your musical influences? Andrew X: For my new record, I was really influenced by the late ‘80s work of Steve Winwood, Bruce Hornsby, Tracy Chapman, Don Henley, Peter Gabriel, and a lot of late ‘80s and early ‘90s pop and adult contemporary music. What or who inspires you? AX: When it comes to my songwriting, my biggest inspirations are usually situations around personal relationships, romantic relationships, and stories of people…

Wastelander’s “What is Left of Me” LP

Though presented against a backdrop as vibrant as the summer sun can be, the vocal harmony in “Be Where,” one of the new songs on Wastelander’s What is Left of Me LP, is as much of a sonic centerpiece as listeners could have hoped for in this latest release from the acclaimed indie singer/songwriter Cooper Formant, and truth be told, it tends to be the cornerstone component of every powerful moment this…

Marc Miner Continues To Deliver Amazing Music via New Album

Marc Miner does what he does out of love. He’s not destined to be country music’s next Chris Stapleton and doesn’t want to be. He’s following his own songwriting and musical path. There is an avenue open for him into the mainstream spotlight thanks to his wont for big-time choruses, perhaps but Miner will never back off telling his stories in a way he sees fit rather than tailoring his…

“Tupelo Rhythm” by Vili V

Vili V has been on the edges of my musical radar for several years as one of the most artful practitioners of roots rock working today. The Canadian performer is prepping for the release of his latest studio album In Daddy’s Arms Again and the single “Tupelo Rhythm” from that collection is ample evidence that he’s still keeping the same prodigious creativity that he has since the late 1990s. “Tupelo Rhythm” is…

Saint Pacific Release New Music

Nate Smith’s style is as reverent as it gets, spanning a creative spectrum inside of a single track if necessary to get a specific point across to his audience, and under the Saint Pacific moniker, we’ve got to hear some of his very best work to date. Saint Pacific’s new album, Blue, doesn’t sport an ironic title by any means, but instead, one that tells us exactly what we’re getting into…

Bill Crews and the Crews Cartel Tell Us About “People Get Ready”

What was important to you when creating the visuals for the song “People Get Ready”? I have a good girl who is very creative. I just gave her a blank canvas. Did you have an idea of what you wanted the video to look like when you were creating the song in the studio? Not really, but surely love what she came up with. Especially that big train. How has…
