So if you haven’t familiarized yourself with Matt Pless yet, you can thank me later. We the music lovers are always looking to find new music and musicians to add to our personal playlists. I say look no further, Matt has been described as today’s Bob Dylan but I find Matt’s lyrics to be a […]

America is a treasure chest to the ear. Along the highways and byways beats are carried over vibrating strings and crooners sing for that girl they knew one summer at the county fair. Americana is more than just a music; it’s music. It’s the telling of a story in a language everyone can get. Marcus […]

The Northway are an up-and-coming punk/progressive rock band with an infectious energy and catchy songwriting skills. The band has been working on a second LP and wrote in to discuss their progress and other aspects of band life. RRX: How are you guys doing as a band? I saw you play last at a local […]

Definitely a “Rocker Chick”. Definitely a talent. Definitely a force to be reckoned with!  And beware she might be on stage one minute and standing on the bar the next! When you go to see her perform with Mike and the Monsters, be ready for one heck of a show! Mike and the Monsters is […]

Its quirky nature endeared in to many, and the characters created in the Duplex Planet carried over into other media, such as books, comics, […]

Maybe a few times in a generation do you find a band or musician that truly resonates and mirrors your own experience in their music and lyrics. For me, this became true in discovering the “East Coast Beasts”, The Bumpin Uglies. I first became familiar with Bumpin Uglies music by total chance, some might say […]

I remember the day well in 2004, when Troy Deputy Mayor Dan Crawley called me into his office and said, “Dude, let’s get something going up at Powers Park this summer.” Dan was one of the architects of the Brunswick Summer concerts, and wanted to bring something similar to his old stomping grounds in Lansingburgh. […]

The Bobby Lees are an uncompromising garage-rock/punk band from Woodstock, New York. In a recent socially distant interview, the band wrote in to describe their recording process, their new upcoming record, and some interesting encounters at shows. RRX: Obviously, everyone is still struggling in the time of COVID-19. For the past three issues, I’ve done […]

I have been spinning Victory Soul Orchestra on my show at RadioradioX since I started here. The music is fun and undoubtedly danceable. I hate comparing groups to others but I certainly intend this to be a compliment, VSO has the talent of The Roots with more brass instrumentation. And… to top it off bringing […]
