This new radio-friendly rock-pop-anthem from The Y Axes will have you montaging by the first chorus. Where bubble gum singles celebrate a “shake it off” superficiality, lead singer Alexi Rose Belchere belts out a deeper more angsty dedication to loyalty with a contagious hook. No escapism here, but rather an appreciation for someone who makes you feel whole. Beautifully patterned guitar arrangements from Devin Nelson...

Oakland’s own Tumbleweed Wanderers play their first hometown headlining show in over three years on Friday, April 8th. Tumbleweed Wanderers, who released one of the best Bay Area albums of 2015 in June, have managed to sidestep the Oakland spotlight as of late. They’ve opened up for big names like Jackie Greene and Greensky Bluegrass but consistently avoided the headlining slot in the East Bay....

Giant Metal Crickets debut album incito is a nail biting action packed psychological instrumental electronica thriller and we’re excited to premiere a little taste of the action.

With the face of singer Doug Tieman alternately basked in sunlight and obscured in the shadow of the brim of his hat, the dapper gentlemen of Blood & Dust whipped with the sound and energy of a steam engine. The clanking rhythm of the tune could only have been further exemplified were it recorded live...

How was your high school prom? Good? Or lame? Did you wear a corsage or tuxedo, and have your very own grand entrance? Did one of your rebellious teenage friends spike the punch? Were you unexpectedly voted prom king or queen? But let’s be honest… Wasn’t something missing? Didn’t you feel that I don’t know, the...

I ran into these two gentlemen first at my open Mic at the Riptide. Affable, funny, energetic, they caught my eye immediately. Once they got up to the mic, that’s when they exploded. These guys are younger in age but wiser in the brain. I’m excited to see their progression. True artists.   About Amplified &...

Diamond Heights released their debut EP City Charms early this month to a sold-out crowd in the downstairs bar at Neck Of The Woods. The band emitted a powerful modern twist on CBGBs era Pretenders/Blondie. Get to know them with this behind the scenes video I shot at Hyde Street Studios with Ted Maider of “Evergreen”. Follow it up by listening to the...

Seth Lael was one of those men that I wanted to get on the broadcast for some time, but the stars had yet to align. So when he came to my open mic in the outer Sunset, I told myself that I would ask him if he would hop on. Luckily, he had the same...

They joined me in preparation for their upcoming album Mayday. Releasing tomorrow February 3rd,  Mayday is bound to be as wonderful as their first release Sail To Heaven, if not more. I first ran into...
