I’m always amazed by a person’s songwriting ability. It doesn’t matter the genre. To me, songwriting is an astounding and baffling talent that’s ten times more amazing than any technology humans have developed. I’ve been trying to figure out how to piece together a complete song for years and I’ve always wondered where the ideas […]
I’ve mentioned before that my favorite music genre is rock and roll, though if I had to pick a least favorite, it would absolutely be country. I mean no disrespect to anyone who enjoys the genre, but I’ve always felt like every country song is the exact same, typically involving a girl, some beer, or […]

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 […]
The Strumbellas are a five piece indie/folk band from Ontario, Canada. They create catchy tunes very similar to The Lumineers and Cold War Kids, but with a bit more of a folk vibe. I’m ashamed to say that The Strumbellas are a band that I often forget that I love. I neglect them until I […]
There is something stereotypical about a duet. Everyone assumes it has to involve a guy and a girl professing endless phrases of love to each other. This assumption comes from famous duets such as “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” and “I Got You, Babe.” Because songs like these involved happy romantic relationships, every other duet should […]
