PONCÉ – To Us, a Good Song is a Good Song

poncefeat

What’s more adorable than twin brothers getting together to write tunes and make music? Probably not much, which is why I’m so into PONCÉ right now. The duo based in Nashville are a Americana-rock band creating lovely lyrics and catchy beats. They’ve been busy creating tunes for their new EP but I was lucky enough […]

Glenn Smyth is a Birmingham boy who spent most of his youth playing football. He may have continued on that route had he not severely injured his leg, ending his football career.

At Warped Tour, there’s a different show every day. The turn out for certain bands in Nashville is going to be different than the show in San Francisco. Still, there’s a surprising feature about Nashville that outsiders don’t seem to get – we love music. Of course, images of the Grand Ole Opry come to […]

Warped Tour 2016 – Less Than Jake’s Chris DeMakes

VWT-logo_header_03

What makes Warped Tour so magical is that you can see bands of just about any genre. Sure, there was a definite pop-punk calling, but these days anything goes. From pop, rock, punk, hip-hop and whatever “alternative” means now, you can hear it all. You can see Sum 41 play a packed field or The […]
