Local Heroes: How JONO is Saving the Environment With His New Single “North”

Nature has such a powerful influence on music. Sunny skies, cloudy days, tropical vs. urban; all have shaped different genres of music and moods. Nature is absolutely my number one influence as an artist. It gives my music meaning. And for my solo instrumental rock project, JONO, nature is much more than an influence. After two releases inspired by nature, I felt that it was time to give back. With my newest release, “North” (a song inspired by the Pacific Northwest), all proceeds from the song go towards the preservation…

The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned: Genres Don’t Have to Be Suffocating

(Photo credit: Kathrin Baumbach) I recently had a very frank email exchange with a friend of mine who reviews music.  “I am bored shitless of singer-songwriters,” they said. It was the most triumphant and illuminating sentence I have read in quite a while, and I endeavor to read as much as I possibly can (top tip* try Jelinek’s ‘The Piano Teacher’ or Pond by Claire-Louise Bennett). It is, however, a difficult title to break from when you stand on stage with an acoustic guitar. I am well aware of the…

LÉON hit the road in March for her Euro/North America Tour. With a handful of sold out dates under her belt, as well as a recently dropped debut album, the Swedish artist has chill vibes and a sultry vocal range that is one to keep an eye on.

Live Review: Snow Patrol

Thankfully, Michiganders didn’t have to brave any cold temperatures or snowy conditions to make it out to the Snow Patrol concert on Saturday, May 4th at Royal Oak Music Theatre. The band’s live performance showed off the masterfully crafted pieces, along with some new songs by the Northern Ireland fivepiece. After a seven year hiatus, their live show full proved Snow Patrol is not feeling too weathered to play those fan faves and familiar radio hits of yesteryear. The night provided two openers, first up was Ryan McMullan, also from…

Interview: Owen Glass

Thanks so much for taking the time to speak with me, Kelly! You’re one half of the duo known as Owen-Glass, an indie folk-rock duo that incorporates textured soundscapes and multi instrumental solos. Tell me a little more about how you settled on this sound, and the process of experimenting to get to this point. Thanks for having me. Honestly, our sound happened totally organically. I knew I wanted a big sound with lots of instrumental breaks. I didn’t have any way of knowing what everyone would sound like all…

Photos/Review: Muse “Simulation Theory Tour”

After being a concert photographer for a while, I’ve heard from multiple sources that Muse puts on one of the best live shows in the industry, with insane lighting and stage props that were made to sell out stadiums. I can’t really argue with that, it’s definitely the most memorable live show I’ve been to personally. For their current tour “Simulation Theory”, their drummer Dominic Howard describes the album best as a “sci-fi neon electronic extravaganza”, which can also easily describe their tour’s live aesthetic. Visually, try to imagine you’re…

Premiere: The Inoculated Canaries “The Lawyer’s Wife”

I don’t know about you guys, but with the first day of Spring behind us, there’s a part of me that wants to only drive with the windows down, wear nothing but t-shirts, and start planning all my festival trips, because hey, it’s that time of year. (Nevermind that it hasn’t broken 50 degrees this week…I’m going to will this Spring weather into existence!) But then you throw in a band like The Inoculated Canaries, the sarcastic, sassy, talented foursome from New York, who make a brand of alternative rock…

Boston Calling Is Just Around the Corner: Here’s What You Need To Know

Can you feel it? That chilly air has all but vanished, and while we’re still not quite at shorts and t-shirt weather, there’s no denying that Spring is just around the corner, and with it, our favorite local fest, Boston Calling. The festival is gearing up for its 10th edition this coming Memorial Day Weekend (May 24-26). As with each new installment, we continue to watch the festival grow in size, (it moved from City Hall Plaza to the Harvard Athletic Complex a few years back) as well as its continued…

Mental Health Matters: “I Thank My Mental Health Every Day”

I thank my mental health every day for what it has made me. I wouldn’t have stated that gratitude in so many words when in 2014 I had regular panic attacks that meant socialising, public eating, and creating meaningful emotional bonds went from regularities to rarities. I certainly didn’t agree with it when in 2017, one day, having fallen in love, made wonderful friends and felt settled in my new home of London, I found I couldn’t get myself out of bed. Soon I couldn’t get myself out of my…
