UNSIGNED SPOTLIGHT: Secret Tree Fort

Standing out as an acoustic artist can be tricky. Some folks hear the term “acoustic” and immediately think slow guitar plucks, soft vocals, earnest lyrics, and that’s about it. Skyler Truth, aka Secret Tree Fort, blows that perception away with his special hybrid of raw acoustic emo and undeniable pop-punk catchiness that chills and thrills in equal measure.

LIVE REVIEW: The Sick Tour w/ New Found Glory and Bayside

They say that seeing your favorite band from high school as an adult is a life changing experience. They’re not wrong. When I saw Bayside and New Found Glory on the same ticket, I screamed out loud.

WATCH: Cardinals “Breathe” Video

When you come across a band that has it, you just feel it. You know what I’m talking about. Their lyrics hit you hard, their melodies seem to course through your veins, and collectively, their songs move you in a way that maybe you’d forgotten you could be moved. They energize you, inspire you, and make you want to hit “repeat” on a song 100 times over. By now you might have guessed that for me,  Cardinals is just this band, and their new lyric video for “Breathe” is a song…
