LÉON hit the road in March for her Euro/North America Tour. With a handful of sold out dates under her belt, as well as a recently dropped debut album, the Swedish artist has chill vibes and a sultry vocal range that is one to keep an eye on. She stopped in Phoenix during the last week of tour with fellow female singer songwriter Morgan Saint. Check out the photos below and keep up with both artists on social media.

Live Review: Snow Patrol

Thankfully, Michiganders didn’t have to brave any cold temperatures or snowy conditions to make it out to the Snow Patrol concert on Saturday, May 4th at Royal Oak Music Theatre. The band’s live performance showed off the masterfully crafted pieces, along with some new songs by the Northern Ireland fivepiece. After a seven year hiatus, their live show full proved Snow Patrol is not feeling too weathered to play those fan faves and familiar radio hits of yesteryear. The night provided two openers, first up was Ryan McMullan, also from…

Album Review: Jon Fratelli ‘Bright Night Flowers’

Anytime someone mentions Roy Orbison, Tom Waits, and Glenn Campbell, I’m all ears. There’s something to be said when someone lists off influences who just so happen to be prolific, timeless singer-songwriters. Call it street cred, kudos, or just plain old ‘knowing their stuff,’ it definitely gets brownie points in my book. Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and front man of the Fratellis, John Fratelli knows the greats, and it’s evident, especially on his latest record. His second solo record, “Bright Night Flowers” is being released on Friday, Feb. 15 via Cooking…

Album Review: William Ryan Key ‘Virtue’

Virtue: behavior showing high moral standards. William Ryan Key‘s Virtue album: auditory collection showing high musical standards. The six track EP, Virtue will be released via Lone Tree Recordings on Nov.30, following the release of his debut solo EP Thirteen in May. This follow-up shows growth, adding layers that the first acoustic, stripped-down release didn’t exhibit. The first track, “The Same Destination” unveils Virtue as a soft, melancholic feel — less high-octane, shredding violins (that Yellowcard fans grew fond of), more contemplative lyrics and a sense of growing older; more introspective. Being a piano-driven instrumental…

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…

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…

LIVE REVIEW: Blue October

After bus troubles that canceled their first stop on the ‘I Hope You’re Happy Tour,’ Blue October held nothing back at the show Sept. 29 at the Intersection in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Leadsinger Justin Furstenfeld addressed the crowd of 1400 people multiple times about how excited he was, and what a great time he was having. He even joked after the final song that he wished he could play more, but regretted to say he couldn’t. Except he could. And he did. The 20-song set included “Into the Ocean” pretty…
