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 […]

Reality can be bleached by the news tickers and the 9-to-5s and the endless pile of pills that cry out to be juggled. And then you see it: that flash of color. The shapes, stroke and gloriously blended gradients that soak into that bleached timeline to remind us that there’s more to live than the […]

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 […]

I took the kids to the library at least once a week, went to Saturday Market every weekend, had settled into my childcare routine, and we were […]

Music and Parenting At that time in my life, my life was once again filled with music. We continued to play at Saturday Market every weekend, sometimes both Saturday and Sunday. One day we were doing our usual thing when a TV crew came by. They were from Sapporo, Japan which is a sister city […]

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 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 […]
