If you’re a rock and roller—with a weakness for classic rock—then get yourself ready for Don Felder’s new album. The former lead guitarist and songwriter for The Eagles will release American Rock ‘N’ Roll on April 5th. But, you can pre-order it now!
The album features some of the biggest names in music: Sammy Hagar, Slash, Richie Sambora, Orianthi, Peter Frampton, Joe Satriani, Mick Fleetwood, and more.
Be on the lookout for a worldwide tour to promote the new tunes.
If we’re completely honest, we can admit that life sometimes is just… hard. Not that we’ve expected puppy kisses and rainbows to cover all our days. But...
We all could use a little inspiration. That’s where David Leonard saves the day. He’s performed with NEEDTOBREATHE and All Sons & Daughters, and now he’s solo.
His debut album The Wait arrives in March filled with stories of identity and God’s faithfulness.
The first single, “Threads”, is about surrender, healing, grace—and rebuilding.
Tired of trying to keep it all together
Tired of lies disguising who I really am
There's pain that’s hiding underneath the surface
I’m tired of trying to keep it on the inside
But here before Your love I’m not afraid
Oh oh, I’m gonna let You pull the threads
‘til my heart unravels
Open me up with every breath
‘til the darkness scatters
and runs away
I’m ready to fall apart
Fall into Your loving arms
I’m gonna let You pull the threads
‘til my heart unravels into Yours
You’re reaching out Your hand
To pull me close again
You see me as I am still You want me
Here before Your love I'm not afraid
You stitch me back together
With Your grace
If you’ve ever had questions, hopes, disappointments... then this album may be worth a listen.
For whatever reason, The Strumbellas’ new tune “Salvation” feels like Spring. Maybe it’s because some of us were buried under a gajilion (writer’s embellishment) inches of snow recently. Or maybe this is what salvation really feels like.
This tune surely is all about living carefree. So, let’s. But just for a day because we have bills to pay…
Seriously. We will listen to anything Rag’n’Bone Man sings. The ABCs. The Charmin butt wiper song. Any. Thing. Because his voice can’t even be described.
Put him together with Calvin Harris’ dance ingenuity, and you’ve got “Giant”.
Only Calvin can take a dirty, nasty blues artist and make him some cleaned-up a-bit-gent ready for the VIP section of any club.
This song’s got fire, soul, passion, and booty shakeability. Win.
We don’t know how we’ve done it-- missed the lengthy-and-still-going career of The Great Kat. Julliard-trained. Winner of the Artists International Competition for violin. “Top 10 Fastest Shredders of All Time” ranking by Guitar One Mag.
She’s a musician under all that. Not that she has much on. While we’re no prudes, and we understand and support a good gimmick, what in the af is this creature?
Oh, yeah. Her latest is CZARDAS for Violin & Piano.
P.S. You would’ve thought she went to Carnegie Mellon.
You’ve probably lived this one a few times. A great weekend or a bad weekend that you pay for later.
Kongos—who brought us the awesome Come With Me Now—is back with Pay For The Weekend.
It’s such a snazzy ditty. Upbeat and fun. Just like the weekend where you planned on chillin’, but then…
If you’re a Kongos fan, be on the lookout for a 10-part documentary series about them entitled “Bus Call”.
And… Call Uber. So you don’t pay for the weekend with a criminal record.
Thank you, The Beths. We feel like we’ve been transported in time to some 80s rom-com with your tune “Future Me Hates Me”. It’s perfect. It’s catchy. It’s hooky.
Allow us to set the scene:
Dorky girl likes hot guy, but hot guy is distracted by hot chick (who always gets the guys). Dorky girl summons the courage to finally tell hot guy how she feels, but some mishap occurs, crashing-and-burning her love dreams.
Surely,The Beths will get the object of their affection—80s rom-com-style!
We’re so glad we’ve discovered JanaeSound. She’s got a unique, memorable voice, a killer rock vibe, and her new single “Break Me Down” is the biggest middle finger to whomever wronged her.
JanaeSound has some serious musical chops, through her work with the Opera Theatre of St. Louis and an opening slot for FloRida. Nice combo.
You can soak up her tasty rage if you’re in Akron, OH, on Thursday, January 17th at Jilly’s Music Room.
We’ll use this as our anthem for the New Year. So, you’re on notice. LOL
She’s not as angst-y as “Complicated”. But instead, Avril Lavigne’s anger has matured into an underlying anger—ready to kick you in the crotch at any moment if need be.
She’s wised-up from trying to smile and act cheery like she did in that disaster of a turn a few years ago. Remember that laughable thing called “Hello Kitty”?
In “Head Above Water”, Avril is just trying to keep it together. Haven’t we all felt that way? Perhaps she's emoting about her failed marriages and her struggle with Lyme disease. The gal's been through a lot.
God, keep my head above water
Don't let me drown, it gets harder
I'll meet you there at the altar
As I fall down to my knees
Don't let me drown, drown, drown
Don't let me, don't let me, don't let me drown
Avril may have just gotten her career back on track with this one. We’re feeling so much zen… what is wrong with us?
Relationships take on many forms. People feel love in many ways. Sometimes an ass-backwards sentiment is the most heartfelt.
So is the case with Zara Larsson. In her tune “Ruin My Life”, she regrets dumping her dude and wants him back to “ruin her life.” Such an effed up lyric wrapped in hypnotic pop. By the end of the video you, too, may want someone to ruin your life.
P.S. You won’t find this on any Hallmark card. But you may one day find it on a Crack Wise card…
