Interview and Album Review: Cory Wells ‘The Way We Are’

Cory Wells’ debut full-length album, The Way We Are was released via Pure Noise Records on Nov. 15. Throughout the twelve song album, Wells traverses through the whole gamut of emotions, delivering powerful screams, lush acoustic guitar, and even a soaring falsetto. Four years in the making, The Way We Are faces topics like understanding, acceptance, and perseverance. The album’s opening track, “Distant” is a brief, but blunt warning, and feels anything but far away, or disconnected at merely 2:10 long. Stay away from me / The devil’s got the…

Mental Health Matters: Escaping Past Traumas

(Photo credit: Emma-Letki) I’m going to do my best not to universalize my understanding of anxiety and depression. It’s a challenge for me to access particular memories about my experiences. The most prominent that moment can think is only tangentially related to music, performance, or its creation. I lost my mother to breast cancer when I was 8 years old. It’s quite difficult for me to figure out the timeline, but I remember it as an incredibly short period of time that somehow had no end in sight. Every now…

The First Time I Recorded A Music Video

(photo credit: Cyclops Girl) It’s inevitable when you are a recording musician that at some point you are going to need to create a music video. I’m Rändi Fay, a songwriter and recording artist, and not long ago, I didn’t relish this idea AT ALL! I have a good share of camera phobia (not helpful…), and an even healthier phobia of appearing completely ridiculous. I have no background in acting, and I can barely watch myself walk in front of a mirror, let alone attempt to intentionally create a facial…

Album Review: The Futureheads ‘Powers’

While it might feel like the last few years have really changed the country, the globe, and the world as we know it — the one thing we hadn’t heard from in awhile was UK indie post-punk group, The Futureheads. Friday, August 30th marked the release date of The Futureheads‘ sixth studio album, Powers, via Nul Records. The last time we heard a studio album from the fourpiece, it was 2012. Solo records, and acapella releases made for a different sound than the frantic British guitar hysteria harmonies fans were…

Mental Health Matters: An Ode To Greg

Photo: Priscilla Bouillon This year I’ve driven a minivan to literally every corner of the United States. From as far south as San Diego, up to Seattle, all the way across to Boston, down to Atlanta, and all the places in between. I’ve played at dive bars, backyard parties, theaters, small clubs, mid-sized clubs and basically anywhere that will let me play. All because of a dream and a friendship that started on a school bus in Junior High. I met Greg Hillman on my first day of sixth grade…

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…
