Jukebox the Ghost’s latest self-titled album goes into some new territory for the Washington, DC band. Singer Ben Thornewill is not only an incredible vocalist – he is also a classically trained and very talented pianist. To celebrate the album’s release on Cherry Tree Records, Ben recorded a piano version of every song to be included on the album. The piano versions take the songs to entirely new places and create the possibility for different interpretations.
Your summer is about to get a lot hotter! California-based band Iration recently announced their third full-length album Hotting Up which is slated for release on August 28th. I was lucky enough to get a quick Q&A with Bassist Adam Taylor a couple of days after the Summer Meltdown Festival in Darrington. I LOVE these guys and I know you will too!
The tour, which currently features 90s hit-makers Sugar Ray, Eve 6, Better Than Ezra and Uncle Kracker, is all about fun and giving the fans what they want. “A couple years ago, I said ‘why don’t we get a couple bands from the nineties together? We’ll play a solid night of hits and hit some beautiful venues that we could never play by ourselves anymore and have some fun!’”
The thought of starting a conversation about music with Emerson Hart was very intimidating at first – after all, he wrote some of my favorite songs over the last two decades – but that feeling quickly transformed into comfort when he reached out his hand and introduced himself just before our interview last Friday afternoon at Woodinville’s Chateau Ste Michelle.
We are very excited to premiere Kate Lynne Logan’s latest video, “Roosey Roads”! Please enjoy below!
There is one major lesson I learned at Bumbershoot this year: just because a band isn’t playing the MainStage doesn’t mean they can’t attract as many people. The audience surrounding the Fisher Green Stage for Neon Trees was so large that it overflowed onto the sidewalk and even up the stairs. Everyone went wild when the band started playing and vocalist Tyler Glenn started belting out some incredible notes. And it just got better and better – people continued to get more and more excited as the show went on!
In this world, we have people who follow paths and people who pave them.
Acappella group Pentatonix has taken non-instrumental vocal artistry to an entirely new level and is paving a way for acapella groups into the mainstream. After winning The Sing Off, the five members of the group: Mitch Grassi, Scott Hoying, Avi Kaplan, Kirstie Maldonado and Kevin Olusola decided that they wanted to not only continue covering songs that people love – but to also start writing new songs for people to love.
Sarah Miles’ latest release, aptly called Hear Me Out, will command your attention from the moment you press play. Her beautiful voice will no doubt capture your heart and hold onto it for good. I can’t wait to hear what’s next! Sarah was kind enough to do a Q&A session with us and I must say: she is lovely!
