Bizzythowed

Urban rocker Bizzythowed has worked with artists throughout his career, like Nicki Minaj, Fabolous and with The Weeknd on his Grammy award-winning album “Beauty Behind the Madness.” Now the Texan is taking the mic and guitar on his blend of hip-hop and hard rock on his new EP “Blank Check, Vol. 1.”

Only Shadows – We Go Further

Only Shadows

I am constantly amazed by how many musicians inhabit this world. Everywhere you look—from radio to television to the web—there are always plenty of artists and bands astounding audiences with their incredible music. This planet is overflowing with talent, especially in the music industry.

The Battles of Winter – Love’s White Thread
