LIVE Review: Justin Courtney Pierre

You’d be hard pressed to find someone who hates the term ‘frontman’ any more than Justin Courtney Pierre does. That being said, you’d also be hard pressed to find a more genuine front man than the perfectly disheveled Pierre. Regardless if fans had attended the show to catch another glimpse of Pierre singing familiar Motion City Soundtrack tunes, or were there to hear his debut solo record live, they left the Detroit show at The Shelter Nov. 2 entertained. Frontmen can be cocky — it’s almost expected. They can be…

Live Review: EDEN

I’ve seen EDEN’s live set twice. Both times were an experience that is hard to put into words, similar to how its almost impossible to describe the genre of his music. This was the third leg of his Vertigo Tour, which coincided with his newest album of the same name. EDEN’s sets are pretty similar tour to tour, typically adding in any new songs he’s released. The most unique part of his performances to me is that its all about the music. You’re probably thinking, “duh its all about the…

Unsigned Spotlight: Night Like This (Pop Punk/Alternative/Acoustic)

How often do you hear the phrase “less is more”? Do you believe those words? Do you apply them to certain aspects of your life? Every once in a while a band comes along that reminds you just how much sheer beauty can be created within the musical ideology of minimalism. Enter Des Moines, Iowa pop-punk/acoustic trio Night Like This. A surprisingly overlooked quality that many of the most popular and beloved artists in modern history share is that multiple members contribute vocals. (The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac…

My First Time Self-Producing a Full-Length Album: “A View From The Highest Point”

When I recorded my album “A View From The Highest Point”, I learned a lot about myself and my capabilities as a musician. I started to believe more in what I can do in music and pushed myself further than I thought imaginable. This was my first album I produced. As any new endeavor goes, there are bad and good experiences. I had some money saved up and decided that I needed a producer with credits – someone who would elevate my sound and use his connections to market our…

Album Review: Justin Courtney Pierre ‘In the Drink’

When Motion City Soundtrack took an indefinite hiatus in 2016, fans were hit. Hard. Right smack in the face. Especially me. I was hoping for a 20th anniversary of the band (co-founded by Justin Courtney Pierre and Joshua Cain in 1997), but alas, they hit the pause button just a year short of that milestone. Known for their incredibly catchy beats, the Minneapolis alternative rock band managed to find a perfect balance between poppy synths, and dark, dismal, often dysfunctional lyrics. The clouds have cleared, and Justin Courtney Pierre is…

Unsigned Spotlight: Guss Royall (Waterloo, IA)

In recent years we’ve seen a notable and refreshing surge in bands wearing their classic rock influences on their sleeve, helping connect the next generation to many of the greats we and our parents listened to. Greta Van Fleet is a large-scale example, but another up-and-coming quartet is bringing back classic bluesy-rock vibes and mixing it with their own modern alt-rock sound for a highly memorable blend. Enter Waterloo, Iowa’s Guss Royall. The “about” section of the band’s Facebook page makes it clear in just a few words what Guss…
