Josh Taerk’s new Americana track, “Rock n Roll,” is so incredibly catchy. It has fun lyrics to match the upbeat feel of the melody. It really makes me want to dance, I even found myself bobbing my head along as I was listening.
This song would totally bring a crowd to its feet and get everyone dancing. Taerk’s vocals on this track are great. His Rock/Pop vibe is so much fun to be apart of. He has a Tom Petty sound, which is always kind to the ear. Overall this track is the ultimate road trip song.
Acclaimed musician and songwriter Reid Lee brings his new album Broken Arrows to the table today. Already charting on the iTunes Pop Album Charts, his makes an impression on all those who listen. His latest single “Save the Best,” has been putting the artist in the spotlight more so than ever.
Reid’s sublime musicality is inextricably linked to his life journey. His birthplace of Corpus Christi, Texas, his foundational training in opera at UCLA, and his adopted and spiritual home of Los Angeles have all imbued his work with a kaleidoscopic artistic and personal perspective. Reid takes inspiration from country, jazz, classical, opera, soul, and the warm intimacy of the Laurel Canyon 1970s singer-songwriter tradition.
Broken Arrows is a 10-song collection (plus a slow and stately acoustic version of an album track) of separate stories that frame the tapestry of Reid’s life in a manner that’s broadly relatable.
Standouts on Broken Arrows include the sweetly soulful opener “Arrowheads,” the urgently anthemic “To The Limit” replete with heavenly vocal harmonies, and the majestic classically tinged “Lady Macbeth.” On “Arrowheads” Reid sings some of his grandfather’s story and recalls the minor miracle of being a young boy discovering arrowheads while on an outdoor trip with his grandfather.

Acclaimed musician Christopher Hawley releases his new album Stories, today; the much awaited record. Available now on digital outlets , he brings a thought provoking album to the table.
After studying classical guitar as a child and playing in the jazz band in high school, Hawley co-founded Mucis, a Colorado jam band whose members signed to a label and toured nationally in a retrofitted school bus. He could never get enough of being on the road performing original music, so when the band broke up, Hawley became a solo roots rock singer-songwriter and forged on in Los Angeles.
A few years back, Hawley’s friend, Randy Wooten, offered to produce a few tracks in exchange for surf lessons for his girlfriend’s son. Hawley and Wooten began writing together on a regular basis. Their prolific partnership produced a long list of songs. One song, “Sidewalks and Bars,” was conceptualized during one of those surf lessons.
What began as a casual collaboration between two friends in Venice soon became a full-length album now known as Stories.
This week we are introduced to a brilliant new duo of Anya Mezentzeva and Gervais Maillard. Freshly releasing their new track “A Day Before Snowfall,” the group impresses with an airy feel of Jazz and Soul that will pull at your heartstrings. On the track we hear a different side of Maillard especially, as he also plays in Indie Pop band, People the Kangaroo (a favorite of ours!). Mezentzeva’s voice is heavenly as it floats above the song; making the piece one of the standout singles of 2017.
