The Without Drop Debut EP ‘Factions’

Releasing their debut EP on March 14th, Factions is a testament to the band’s immense talent.

The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned: Trust Yourself

As anyone who has made a full-length album before will tell you, it’s a HUGE undertaking – emotionally, financially, and in the sheer number of hours required.  I just released my first full-length album Green Hearts at the end of January after raising money through crowdfunding.  In addition to self-releasing it, I’ve been doing my own PR for the release (on top of a demanding day-job).  Suffice it to say it’s been a busy year!  I have learned so much, but the most important thing I’ve learned throughout the entire process…

The Austin Musician’s Struggle: “A story about being from Austin for us is about trying to leave Austin.” Indie Music Cities Series News Rock 

The Austin Musician’s Struggle: “A story about being from Austin for us is about trying to leave Austin.”

You can find a gig in Austin seven days a week. This most attractive quality of the Austin music scene is also its most detrimental. It’s hard to stand on Red River and see past 6th St and over the hill country. For many artists that’s attractive enough, especially when it takes at least five hours to drive out of Texas in any direction. It’s a trip watching your band fall into their nook of the Austin music scene. It’s just as cool seeing where your contemporaries land. We’ve had the…

LIVE REVIEW: Arkells + Frank Turner Sold Out Performance in Hamilton, ON

There’s something so special about being witness to a band’s hometown show. When I learned that I’d be in Toronto for Arkells‘ hometown show in Hamilton, ON, just an hour away, I knew I had to be there. I’d been following the band for only a few years, but after being blown away by their performances at SXSW, I knew that they provided an intense energy and stage presence that was only set to amplify when they were back home.

Boston Calling Announces 2017 Lineup: Weezer, Tool, Mumford & Sons, The 1975 & More

When Boston Calling first announced plans to infiltrate Boston, I couldn’t have been more excited. It had been a long time coming that my home city have its own music festival, and what Boston Calling has brought the city over the years is nothing short of incredibly special. We’ve covered the festival since its inception, watching it transform, but never failing to provide stellar line-ups, and enough food, fun, and general entertainment to keep the entire weekend packed with excitement. As announced back in May, the festival will be changing locations from City…

Jeff Michaels Releases Feel-Good Holiday Track “Green ‘n Red”

Look, we’ve all been feeling kind of down in the dumps since Election Day. It’s been a rough couple weeks and when you add in the stress of holiday shopping, rushing around to see family, and picking out the perfect gift, it’s pretty easy to forget the whole point of the holiday and all the joy it’s meant to bring. Boston singer-songwriter Jeff Michaels is looking to change all of that with the release of his feel-good holiday track, “Green ‘n Red,” which honestly sounds like it belongs in a…
