Sarah Khan – The Mind Behind the Voice

Sarah Khan

It is one thing to hear an artist singing on their albums, but it’s another thing entirely to have a conversation with that artist. Last week, I discussed New York pop singer Sarah Khan. I praised her powerful singing voice, with its powerful, mesmerizing charms. However, this week I received the chance to talk to […]

Emily McNally – Singing, Songwriting and Marvel

Emily McNally

Some of you may remember a couple weeks ago when I reviewed New York artist Emily McNally’s EP, “Small Town.” It was an amazing group of songs from an extremely talented artist. You can imagine how stoked I was, however, when I was given the opportunity to chat with Miss McNally. I enjoyed her EP […]

Jeff Wright – Kinky Rhino and Blue Man Group

Kinky Rhino

Kinky Rhino is a garage-rock band made up of Jeff Wright and some members of Blue Man Group. In a review of their newest single, I mentioned that their sound reminded me of that kid from my high school with the shaggy hair and leather cuff bracelets. The one that you just knew went home […]

James Holt – Sanguine on the Rocks

James Holt

James Holt is a Manchester based musician whose sound is wise beyond his years. At only 23, the vocalist/guitarist and his three piece band tap into multiple genres in their upcoming EP, Sanguine on the Rocks. It’s the kind of music that keeps you guessing and wondering throughout the entire listening experience. It’s nearly impossible […]

Music and Money with David Adams

David Adams Logo

Most of the time when people think or rock stars or rap gods they think about the fancy cars and clothes and boats, worth hundreds of thousands, that get taken out once a year. But all these expensive items of luxury come with taxes, bookkeeping and (in the case of MC Hammer) bankruptcy. Independent financial […]

The Real Tameca Jones

Tameca Jones

Something people do not know about me is that I am a fan of covers and fandubs. On my personal YouTube account, I have a playlist compiled of over a hundred tracks where YouTubers are singing their own versions of my favorite anime openings and endings. It’s hard to explain why I love them so […]

The Other Side of Jackie Venson

Jackie Venson

I have always believed practice is what makes any artist great. Whether you’re a writer, a painter, or a musician, you will never surpass others’ expectations unless you practice your trade. It may take years for you to become a master and well-known throughout the world, but it will be worth it in the end […]

Andrew Tufano – 100 Songs in 100 Days

Andrew Tufano

Writing a song can be difficult, writing a song a day for 100 days can be damn near impossible, for multi-instrumentalist Andrew Tufano, it was a challenge he couldn’t resist. A musician for over a decade, Tufano moved to Nashville a couple years ago and has been writing and performing all over town for other […]

Sam GO – Influences, Writing and Spiritual Success

Sam GO Gringo

What can I say about Sam GO? As someone who described himself at one point as a prematurely cynical asshole, my interview with Sam Griffin-Ortiz was actually very enlightening and philosophical at times. We chatted about everything from his latest album Gringo, to his very out-of-the-ordinary tour of South America. It really became less of […]
