From Gainesville, Florida, the band Sister Hazel continues to bring some southern rock flavor to the airwaves and CD players of America. But that category would be too limiting for Ken Block, Drew Copeland, Ryan Newell, Mark Trojanowski and Jett...
Nightmare of You sets the tone with “I Was Never A Normal Boy” tune from its Bang CD (2007 The Bevonshire). The lyrics of this song are interesting, though they don’t quite stretch to the vision that the title promises. Close. (This veteran listener would encourage them to keep up the good work.) The title [...]
It’s a rare rock/alternative group that separates itself from the run-of-the-mill bands with a band member on piano and other keyboards. Lydia is on its way, with singer/keyboardist Mindy White. But there is much more to this Gilbert, Arizona group. In addition to White, the group is composed of Leighton Antelman (vocals/guitar), Steve McGraw (guitar), [...]
Faktion, from Dallas, is a rock band. Just ask one of the band members. But labelling the group as 99 percent rock is not a bad thing, necessarily. Why not 100 percent? Not many groups reach that level of commitment. Let’s wait and see with Faktion. “Feel The Fire” from 2007 is a very good [...]
It’s certainly no surprise that this veteran group is from New Orleans, Louisiana, a city that has sent dozens of talented musical children into the world. It must be the air and water!

But for the uninitiated, the group is worth standing in line for. “Untouched and Intact” opens with an interesting rhythm guitar move that gives [...]
From Gainesville, Florida, the band Sister Hazel continues to bring some southern rock flavor to the airwaves and CD players of America. But that category would be too limiting for Ken Block, Drew Copeland, Ryan Newell, Mark Trojanowski and Jett Beres, who also seem to have some Pure Prairie League/Eagles influence in their background. This [...]
Corey Crowder is definitely a folk singer, in the traditional sense. Hailing from Greenville, South Carolina, Crowder sings with a soft, breathy voice that is part of the song, not the only part that catches the ear. With good folk music, the acoustic guitar, piano, bass… whatever instruments are long for the ride… are also [...]
Well, what do you expect with a song named “Satan Said Dance?” The sound-effects beginning makes you want to stay around and hear more. It’s sort of like walking in on a couple having sex – you don’t want to watch but you can’t look away. It’s too good as an experience. The Clap Your [...]
