April 19, 2017

We have a song for you to check out on 4/20. It is the new song from RASPIN and it is Smoke the Hookah! Raspin Stuwart’s new release is a soulful reggae track which calls you to “get up and stand up”. As we approach 4/20 this month, we celebrate with the new enlightened laws that have swept states such as California, Colorado and Washington. While we still have a journey ahead of us in so many other states to assert our God-given rights to live our ways of life as we wish, the momentum continues to build. Raspin’s “Smoke the Hookah” inspires us to “get up and stand up – stand up for your rights. These are human rights; we’ve got to fight so peacefully. Unite, people!”  Check out the song here:   Make sure to visit his social media sites for the latest news.

April 19, 2017

Metalcore band Hollow have just released their new single, Anomaly which is off their debut album, Home Isn’t Where the Heart Is. The album is set to release on June 9th. Vocals and bassist, John Flynn comments about the  new album, ‘Home Is Not Where The Heart Is’ was originally going to be a concept album, and these lyrics were the only ones we kept after we decided against that. It’s all about how bleak the future looks. They describe all of humanity being narrowed down to one big city that’s sucking up the rest of our natural resources. So inside the walls everything looks fine, but the rest of world is just a big desert. It’s very Mad Max and it’s very Matrix.” Check out the new song here: You can pre-order the album by  heading over to: https://hollowofficialmerch.com/. Home Is Not Where The Heart Is Track List 1. Coward King 2. The American Dream 3. Dis/connect 4. Anomaly 5. Too Far Gone 6. Delta F508 7. No Offense 8. Tonguespeak 9. The Wicked 10. Alpha/Omega 11. [Read More]

Brett Gleason returns with sophomore album Manifest, fueled with a depth of passion and emotion

April 19, 2017

Multi-instrumentalist Brett Gleason returns with his sophomore album, Manifest and it is fueled with a depth of emotion and passion. The album is the follow up to Brett’s acclaimed 2014 self-titled effort, and features the singles “If I Could” and “Expiration Date.”  Brett comments about the new album, “My 2nd album, ‘Manifest’ feels more like my first as I strip down my sound to address the basic themes of humanity such as love, loss, death & time with the fresh perspective of an artist reborn. Whereas my debut album of dark, electro rock dealt with the drama of mental illness – ‘Manifest’ is my re-initiation into the life of the living as I try to live and love in the light of the world. It’s not easy but armed with my piano, an acoustic guitar, and poetry – I’m starting to navigate this complexly beautiful world and have devoted ‘Manifest’ to my first forays into its depths.” Take a listen to the new album here: You can now purchase the album on iTunes and Brett’s [Read More]
