UPROOTING JT LAKE- SOULFUL HEALING by Ralph Renna Already making their mark the Syracuse New York band Root Shock, has been astonishing audiences since 2012.   Defined as “Conscious, soulful, uplifting, even healing—that’s how many fans of Root Shock have described the band’s infectious sound and energy. With a reputation like that, it’s unsurprising that […]

The modern world, in many ways, is a created thing. Not getting religious or philosophical, just saying that every graphic, every jingle, every eight-thirty a.m. pre-work cranker was created.

Performing is a power. When you have an instrument that you know how to wield, or a voice you know how to elicit a sweet tone from, you’re a superhero. You may be a mutant of natural talent, or an equipped super-soldier, but you don’t go to the bars or the clubs or the dance […]

Based on a true story. The first few months of a relationship can be magical. Biographical life changes lead to many peaks and special memories built.
