One In The Chamber – Itchin’ Back

Here is a band that I cannot say enough good about. I’m sure there are people who really aren’t into the hair-metal-meets-grunge-rock sort of sound but… they don’t have to...


Best Intentions – At The Ocean

I always expect all sorts of music to come out of Nashville, but when I think of the most notable acts from that southern haven of music, I definitely don’t...


Ivan Beecroft – Liars, Freaks & Fools

He’s done it! Ivan Beecroft has managed to skip over that Florida-Georgia-Line-meets-Guns’n'Roses wheelhouse that I have now twice placed him in and has gone for a darker, grungier Danzig-meets-Alice-In-Chains-meets-Foo-Fighters sort...


Peter Senior – On The Edge

If you’re looking to pick yourself up from those lingering winter blues in this the coldest month of the year then I think I have the solution and it comes...


Matt DeMello & The Significant Looks – Don’t Mind If I Do

Holy shit! If you have never heard of Matt DeMello & The Significant Looks then I suggest you pay attention right here. Just this past week, DeMello and his crew...


Corey Pavlosky – Weathered

“I can’t lie”, this latest single from Virginian pop-punk-rocker Corey Pavlosky ‘Weathered‘ is a pretty polished tune. On the surface, it’s a simple composition that could be attributed to many...


Green Knuckle Material – Renaissance

“We have created our own unique sound and style of music that really is unlike anything else.” Well, I have to say that Green Knuckle Material has certainly created their...


Luca Bash – Keys Of Mine

  If you’re up for a jazzy album that will definitely funk you up at the same time, then you need to check out Luca Bash’s latest album ‘Keys Of...


Ivan Beecroft – Whatever

When I received this new album to review, I swore that I had heard the name Ivan Beecroft before. Indeed I had. Searching back through the many music reviews on Swept...


Kris Heaton – World Gone Mad

Bluesy pop-rock artist Kris Heaton has had a very expansive history with regards to the artists he’s played with. He’s opened for the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, and he’s collaborated...


Last Bullet – Sin

Holy shit! It’s been so long since I’ve actually enjoyed some heavy, denim-and-leather-clad rockers doing their thing. If you’re a fan of Alice In Chains, Godsmack, Stone Temple Pilots or...


Brother Oliver – What Will Be Will Be

If you’re looking for some slick, psychedelic, Southern folk-rock then look no further! South Carolinian folk-rock group Brother Oliver has just released their latest single ‘What Will Be Will Be‘...


Ale Torriggino – Blue Light

If you’re a fan of John Mayer…or even Oasis (yes I realize how very distant these two musical dynamos are), then you should definitely check out Ale Torriggino’s latest album ‘Blue...


Westing – I haven’t Been Feeling Myself

If ever you’re looking for Westing – that quiet, acoustic, and solo music act…don’t. Westing has become something much more. That’s not to denigrate the old ways, but moving on...


Eddy Yang – Split The Night

There’s something to be said of independent musicians, in the true sense of the word. Meaning that they have independently produced their work. Not that their a part of the...


Jay Regan – Wash Me

Jay Regan takes listeners on a musical journey back in time. Going through some select history of rock, Regan brings us a fifteen track album of rock’n'roll variation in ‘Wash...


The Psyatics – Famous Monsters

This is a sweet album… and almost in the way that some of it sounds a lot like the band Sweet. But make no mistake, The Psyatics really do have a...


Load It Up In The Spotlight!!!

I recently had the privilege to ask musician Cody Labombard a few questions about his upbeat, bittersweet, roaring new single ‘In the Spotlight’, and his upcoming album ‘Load It Up!!!’....


Riot Guuurrll

Riooott Guurrl When the line-up for Riot Fest Toronto 2014 was released back in the spring I died. I dropped dead on the spot. The Cure… ARE YOU KIDDING ME?...


Here & There – Torture for Pleasure’s: Mike and Cici

Over the long weekend, the small Ontario town, Deep River, had its bi-annual Summerfest. The out-of-towners who came from all over to enjoy the festivities may have been won over...
