Hangout Fest was hands down the best music festival I’ve been to thus far: the lineup, the hangs, the hospitality, THE BEACH! Everything down to the last detail was perfect and added up to a fun experience that I would never trade for anything. Driving eight hours from Houston to Gulf Shores on an incredibly tight budget was worth it.
Singer/songwriter Alex Stern started as a new twitter follower but she’s now turned into a friend and favorite artist. We’ve talked about music, life and recently, crushes. Her latest single, “Think About You” is about that feeling when you can’t get a certain someone out of your head. Alex is so open with everything to me and I couldn’t wait to hear the inspiration behind the single.
Dear Rouge is comprised of Drew and Danielle McTaggart who are partners in music and life. After quitting their day jobs and focusing on music full time their sound started taking off.
We love the new Caroline Grace song “Lotto” but we love the stripped down version even more. Her sultry vocals take center stage and the smooth backing instruments are a vibe that we can’t stop listening to.
Bands like Ripe are few and far between. The band is famous for their infectious energy and insane live performance. I chatted with Robbie about their live show and how they developed their signature sound.
Hangout Fest is coming up! The 3-Day festival that covers the gorgeous beaches of Gulf Shores Alabama is always one of the best fests of the season. Here’s what you need to know to prep.
I have a confession to make: despite my love for heavy underground music, I have have a soft spot for “good ‘ole boy” jams which extends to pretty much anything with a twang that makes me want to sit around a fire with my friends with a case of local beers. One of the first artists who captured that essence was Josh Ritter. His work, particularly the songs ‘Harrisburg’ and ‘A Thin Blue Frame’ became my bridge to other artists who straddled the line between rock, americana, and folk.
ONR. was born in Glasgow and raised between the Scottish highlands and southern Scotland. His music is eclectic and different. His booming voice over a mix of synths and lilting melodies. You can easily taste the influence from icons like Elton John and Bruce Springsteen but also his contemporaries like Arcade Fire and The Killers.
While you’ve probably followed Finneas O’Connell’s talents for a while, I bet you didn’t know this fact about him – he’ll never give up skinny jeans. No matter how out of style they become.
If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for a good pop song and singer/songwriter ANNALIA has me hooked. She’s dropping her EP next month, but I got to talk to her about the exclusive premiere of her latest single, “Affinity.”
