Vanilla Fudge epitimised the combination of all that fiery music. When my Motor City music monsters Jim McCarty and Rusty Day teamed up with the most powerful rhythm section of Tim Bogart and Carmine Appice to form Cactus, I thought my musical world would surely spin off its axis! The raw Detroit energy of Rusty and Jim with the definitive thrust of Tim and Carmines richter scale groove made every band in the world practice harder! Cactus were a serious force to reckon with. dUg Pinnick shares about the song, “It was 1971, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Deep Purple and Yes were my go to bands, and one day I went to visit [Read More]

New Alt Pop Trio EXPLORING BIRDSONG release new single Turntail

June 20, 2024

New alt-pop band EXPLORING BIRDSONG has just released a new single, Turntail. The band comments on the new song, In a similar way to the latest single ‘The Collapse’, the bones of ‘Turntail’ were originally formed a while back, whilst we were still at university. The first version of the song was actually written long enough ago that we were considering to be a part of our debut EP The Thing With Feathers. Where ‘Turntail’ differs from ‘The Collapse’, however, is we always knew there was a great song in there somewhere. The chorus we feel is one of the strongest we’ve ever written, and we didn’t want to force releasing a song we think may benefit from a revisit later down the line. Fortunately, we feel the wait has paid off, and the version of ‘Turntail’ you hear today is something we’re really proud of. It represents both the older parts of us, along with the fresher, future version of Birdsong, and releasing it now feels right.” Check out the new song/video here:   EXPLORING BIRDSONG [Read More]

Nick Perri & The Underground Thieves release infectious new track, Sunset to Sunset

June 19, 2024

  Just in time to kick off your summer, Nick Perri & The Underground Thieves release their infectious new song, Sunset to Sunset.  The track captures the feel good vibe of summer sunsets through it’s vibrant melody, captivating guitars and expressive vocals. The song evokes images of long, carefree days and warm breezy nights, encapsulating the essence of summer bliss and carefree spirit. Nick Perri explains about how the new version came about, So back when we were recording Terra Firma in January 2022, we actually cut two very different versions of a song called Sunset To Sunset. The version you hear on the album is a much more somber emotional version featuring strings and piano, and it’s more reflective of the depth of the lyric- and the way it was written. That said, it was my bassist Brian Weaver who had the idea to try and do a more up-tempo upbeat version. He was always hearing it with a Motown vibe. And so we tried it, and all fell in love with it.

Country Pop Singer Sam Paige releases emotionally driven track, People Pleaser

June 19, 2024

  Country Pop Singer Sam Paige delivers an emotionally driven new track, People Pleaser. Her new single was co-written with Nashville’s Producer Alex Seier. Sam’s music is a direct reflection of her life and experiences. She comments about the track, “As I grow in my life and as an artist, it is important to me that I tackle things in my own life that I need to improve on and or at the very least acknowledge without shame.  It is my hope that others will hear this song and identify with my honest admission that I am a serial people pleaser. It’s never too late to change and through songwriting I find it very therapeutic to address my shortcomings. I do love pleasing people, however I am also learning to please myself.”  The infectious new track shows how people pleasers will change themselves to appease those around them, which of course brings about mental exhaustion. The song and music video “People Pleaser” is an absolute must watch and listen and gives us an inside view [Read More]

The Anix delivers raw emotion with latest rock single, Panic

June 19, 2024

The Anix delivers depths of raw emotion in the latest single, Panic. The song is off the upcoming album, VOLTAGE which is set for release later this year. The Anix is the alternative / electronic-rock project of Los Angeles artist/producer Brandon Smith. Known for pushing creative boundaries with his genre-blending mix of alternative rock with dark melancholic undertones drenched in an array of synthesizers. The Anix comments about the new song, ‘PANIC’ is written as an internal dialog with myself during unexpected issues I started having with anxiety/panic attacks before a performance or speech. This started happening out of nowhere, with no warning, where I would just lose the ability to manage my breathing, which makes it impossible to speak. All it takes is for this to happen to you once, then the fear of it happening again can trigger it to happen, which creates a downward spiral of events and paranoia.”   Watch the visualizer for the new track here: Purchase/Stream: https://link.fixtmusic.com/panic   Make sure to visit the social media sites and stay up to [Read More]
