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...

Bobbie Morrone – Lonely St.

Well, if you’re looking for a smooth sound that is something along the lines of whatever a love child between John Mayer and Jack Johnson would be like then you...


Kacy Moon – Good Guys

Perhaps one of the more prolific pop artists I happen to review, Kacy Moon is continually pumping out peppy and pure pop that really features her uniquely clear and captivating...


Alex Mejias – Kingdom Land

From “Methodism, to Memphis”, Alex Mejias has produced a pretty fantastic album, leading those he can to ‘Kingdom Land‘. While I’m not a Christian by any stretch of the imagination, aside...
