Music Cities: Grand Rapids, Michigan

Michigan is no stranger to music. Hitsville USA a.k.a. Motown was founded in Detroit. Plenty of Michigan rockers came from the mitten state: Alice Cooper, Bob Seger, Diana Ross (The Supremes) Glen Frey (The Eagles), Iggy Pop, Madonna, Stevie Wonder, Jack White, Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Grand Funk Railroad, The Romantics, Mike Posner, Sufjan Stevens, and the list goes on… While Detroit Rock City gets plenty of high praises for its music (thanks for the 1979 shout-out, KISS), a Western Michigan city is also making a way onto the…

PLAYLIST: “It’s All About Vibe”

ALBUM REVIEW: 28 North ‘World on Fire’

28 North’s newest album World on Fire is said to be their breakout album. Well, guys, I absolutely agree with you! Described as the love child (resulting from an imaginary “magical musical orgy”) of Counting Crows, Matchbox Twenty, U2, R.E.M., Oleander, and The Eagles, I’d say it’s very hard to not like 28 North, even if you’re not a fan of any of the band’s “parents.” Hailing from Pittsburgh but currently residing in Los Angeles, this quartet brings the energy like no other. Labeled “New Classic American Blend with an…
