You know that feeling you get when you hear new music on the radio? I do. And it's not good. It's full of what I call "beard music" and is that folky, four on the floor with the kick drum, lets see how "ironic" we can be crap day in and day out. Then I

The Winery Dogs are rock n' rolls newest addition to the scene but make no mistake, the members are anything but newbies in the biz.

Singer/guitarist Richie Kotzen made himself known with Poison and Mr. Big while bassist Billy Sheehan (whom we've interviewed, also with Mr. Big has also been with Talas and David Lee

Bands...Is Facebook Enough?

As I stroll around the internet from time to time looking up bands for various reasons (choosing an opening act for my band, etc.), I see a growing number of artists who have gotten away from having their own website and just utilizing Facebook as their main page. Well, what's interesting is I remember writing a post on a discussion forum similar to the blog I'm writing now. Except exchange the word Facebook for Myspace.

    You know that feeling you get when you hear new music on the radio? I do. And it's not good. It's full of what I call "beard music" and is that folky, four on the floor with the kick drum, lets see how "ironic" we can be crap day in and day out.

  • Birdy - "Fire Within" +

    It may come as a surprise to music lovers on this side of the pond, but “Fire Within” is not Birdy’s debut album. “Fire Within” is actually the poetic songwriter’s second album, releasing in the U.S. while Birdy is amid a whirlwind stateside tour with Christina Perri.

Each of the 11 tracks has a life of its own, telling stories of love, loss, and hope, while displaying Birdy’s gift of not only song-writing, but musical talent. An extremely talented pianist and
