INTERVIEW: Mikey Wax

I recently got a chance to sit down, or rather, stand in a parking lot and talk with up and coming singer/songwriter, Mikey Wax. There was no green room so were were standing next to his lovely new minivan at Velo Cult which can only be described as the most Portland, Oregon place on the planet. It’s a bike shop and a pub. Told you it’s so very Portland. We discussed his first headlining tour and of course his music. Take a look at the conversation below! You can purchase…

PLAYLIST: Growing Up Austin

Disclaimer: My Growing Up playlist might be the weirdest grouping of songs you have ever seen. Not to mention their release years just jump from early 2000’s to 1960’s to just last year. In truth, I am still growing up and have a lot of learning to do. However, I can tell you what songs and artists have influenced me the most. In case you were too lazy to scroll to the bottom of this page, my name is Austin Heath and I am an 18-year-old senior in high school….

George Harrison’s Beetle Infested Memorial Tree Has Been Replaced

On Wednesday, one of rock and roll’s most famous dead tree has been replaced. Last year, the Canary Island pine tree originally planted in memory of George Harrison in 2004 died after a severe beetle infestation. The fallen tree has been replaced by a 10-foot tall yew pine on February 25, which would have been Harrison’s 72nd birthday. Although Harrison’s widow, Olivia Harrison, and son, Dhani Harrison, weren’t able to attend the ceremony at Griffith Park in Los Angeles, the musician’s older sister, Louise took part in the event as…

GUEST BLOG: Working Nine To Five…To Midnight: Having A “Real” Job & Playing In A Band

I gather sleep like natives gather morsels of food: in small but much-needed increments. You see, my band, The Paper Jets, is unfortunately not my main piece as far as income goes (yet). No, no, I work in management for a publicly traded Fortune 500 global conglomerate. I am a number. I am a robot. I am Jack’s raging bile duct… until I leave work, change in the car, and make my way either to practice, the studio, or a show. Some articles may tell you that Corporate America will…

GUEST BLOG: Paradigm Shift

It had been a long time since I watched the movie Almost Famous, written and directed by Cameron Crowe, and I happened onto it on Netflix the other day. I barely remembered it but at the time I watched it, I don’t remember being particularly moved. I was coming off three years of touring in the Jam Band Circuit with the Boulder band Zuba and wasn’t interested in a movie about life on the road with a band. Now that some years have passed, I can sit back and enjoy…

GUEST BLOG: On The Current State Of Rock, Los Angeles, And Being Who You Are

When I was asked to write a guest blog for Infectious Magazine, countless ideas came to mind. In the end, I decided I’d really like to shed some light on how we feel about the music industry and the scene of today. When I tell people I’m a musician it’s hard not to get pulled into a conversation about the business, its downfall, disgust for pop music, over-saturation, and these are just a few topics. Where is the optimism? I think the new ‘age’ of music (like everything else) has…

Joe Cocker Dies At 70 Years Old

The music world got a shock yesterday when we found out that the legendary Joe Cocker had passed away. He died of lung cancer at the young age of 70. He was best known for his cover of The Beatles song, “With A Little Help From My Friends,” and “Up Where We Belong.” This Sheffield Englishman put his name on the map when he blew everyone away at Woodstock. However, it’s better to have those who knew him describe what a terrible loss this is. Read their messages below. You…
