Music carries feeling like wire carries current. It’s all too tempting to believe your music is the best music, because it’s complex or it’s smooth or it has this history or that. But we forget sometimes that the music we love is the music that pushed a speaker when we fell in love or held […]

Once I settled into the apartment I was subletting, I started inviting friends over to jam. I was no longer living with a musician and was missing that sharing of music. I had also booked a gig for a month and a half away, knowing that although I was just learning to play the guitar, […]

My life was now starting to unravel in all directions.

We’d settled in upstate New York because […]

Featuring Danny Louis from Gov’t Mule, and historian, archaeologist and author Don Rittner. And many more! Xperience April 2021 […]

When I watch and listen to Quady Rouse I know there’s more to this cool cat than meets the eye. Watching him act, dance and sing, to the observer it becomes evident that he channels emotion into his craft. Today I have the chance to speak with this modest young up and coming entertainer and […]

This is a (pretty much mostly) true story of the stupidest person I have ever met. One could say he’s as dumb as a box of rocks, but that would insult the rocks. Shakespeare would say it is “a tale told by an idiot,” I say it is a tale told ABOUT an idiot. Forrest […]
