I’m a narcissist.
I love stumbling across random musicians. I think that’s part of the fun of music. It’s better now with the Internet because you can find great musicians that aren’t with a record label; those are the ones that dominate my iTunes. A long-time favorite of mine is the Icarus Account. I still can’t believe they’re unsigned, because Trey and Ty Turner are amazing. It helps that they support the Tampa Bay Rays!
Other favorites: Move Out West, Clashing Colours, Summertime Dropouts, Brian Mackey, etc.
These guys supported Our Last Night on their “Freedom Isn’t Free” tour. It is easy to be immediately impressed with clean vocalist Christian Koo’s pipes. He is almost reminiscent of Jonny Craig in his soulful delivery. Their EP, Dream Status, is catchy and showcases great vocals, interesting guitar riffs and poignant lyrics. You can purchase the EP on iTunes.
Check out: “Mac Attack”
I have had the pleasure of seeing Like Kites twice now and both times they have not failed to entertain. Their progressive/alternative style is very appealing, their songs are catchy, their energy on stage is second to none and you can’t deny their enthusiasm when Anthony Frith is in the moment, jumping off the stage, down on his knees or lying on the floor at the feet of their fans. Like Kites put on a spectacular show and I can’t wait to see them release their first album.
The Diamond Light is made up of a bunch of old high school friends of mine. They were signed in 2007 but have since dropped their label and have been very successful in doing so. They’ve been in numerous commercials as well as Showtime and MTV shows.
Brooklyn based rap duo Weekend Money has had a successful year playing Webster Hall and Brooklyn Bowl with some very prominent artists like Zion-I and Kids These Days.
Indie singer/guitarist from NH who has such an incredible edgy sound. You can catch her in Northern MA and Southern NH for shows, she’s worth a listen for sure but nothing beats her live performances.
