We are hooked on our spotlight band Carter Lou & The Project

June 27, 2017

Today our Spotlight shines on an amazing artist Carter Lou & The Project. Carter’s journey into music began with a bold decision after tragic circumstances. Carter Louthian was ready to set off to college and suddenly everything changed. The night before he was set to go to college, Lou snapped: his two best friends had recently killed themselves a day apart, and his girlfriend had just broken his heart. Combined with the reality of the packaged post-college suburban life he was heading toward, he felt even more emptiness. He boldly told his parents that he wasn’t going to university in the morning and has chosen to pursue music instead. Since then, the band has packed out numerous headlining shows and earning a prestigious endorsement from PRS Guitars.  It truly reminds me of two of my favorite quotes: “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson “Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.” [Read More]

Shatterproof release new video for their track Karma, off upcoming self titled EP

June 23, 2017

    Perfect way to kick off the weekend, we have the new music video from Shatterproof. The video is for their bad ass track, Karma. It is the  next single off their upcoming self titled EP which is set for a July 21st release.  The music video for “Karma” directed and produced by Hudson Bloom, is “the classic Mariah Carey, revenge-breakup song,” continuing the band says, “It’s about being cheated on and taking things into your own hands. This story is developed further in the actual music video for the song. A girl breaks up with Benji in the first scene. Instead of being down about it, he channels this energy into his music. The girl slowly makes her way from one band member to the next, breaking all of our hearts and eventually becoming a sort of fake mythology for how the band started. Each member joins this band and bonds over being cheated-on by the girl.”     Shatterproof has been on our highlight bands these days, as they blew us away [Read More]

A Will Away release video for their new single, Gravity off their debut album

June 23, 2017

Alternative rockers A Will Away release video for their new track, Gravity which is off their debut full-length album Here Again.  The video for ‘Gravity” was directed by Eric Teti and Sam Gursky and filmed in one of the studios at Drexel University. ‘Gravity’ symbolizes the things in life people can’t control, so the band decided to film in black and white to represent the dark, dream-like experience that is life’s uncontrolled forces, as well as shooting in double speed to created a slowed, lagging sensation.   Vocalist and guitarist Matt said regarding the video, “It uses gravity (the force of nature) as the most concrete representation of our human lack of control in the universe. Gravity keeps us tethered to the Earth, it allows us to live, allowed us to evolve from cells to thinking beings, allows us an atmosphere in which we can breathe. If we pay it more attention, we may notice that gravity tells us how small we are to the rest of the universe.” Watch the video here:   You can catch [Read More]
