The first time I heard Corey Harper’s voice, I was swooning. Like, it was so pure. It’s the perfect soundtrack to compliment any relationship in your life. So it shouldn’t be a surprise I was obsessed with Harper’s newest single, “No Good Alone.”
I’ve been hearing about The Rocketboys for a long time. They’re a staple of the Austin music scene. I caught them at Mohawk right before their sold-out show for their newly released “Certain Circles.” This album really demonstrates their maturity as a band and shows them coming into their sound.
Fenech-Soler was performing on the same night as “the xx” at ACL Live, so you can imagine this was a tough show, but 3TEN is one of my favorite venues in Austin right now. After a killer start with Knox Hamilton, we were ready. I’ve been listening to Zilla almost on loop all day to prep and couldn’t get enough of the synth pop jams that show promise of fun. and Phoenix.
I remember leaving 5 Seconds of Summer’s Sounds Live Feels Live tour last summer and telling my friends Hey Violet was on the brink of success. So would you believe that just eight months later I was hearing them perform sold-out show? When I saw the group, they were a four piece but now with newest bandmate, Ian Shipp, they’re on their first U.S. headlining tour and made a little stop in Dallas, Texas where they performed at the Cambridge Room in the House of Blues.
Lauren Giraldo is a busy girl. Her new series Lady Bits is packed with female empowerment and honest conversations on women’s rights and gender equality, but asides from that this boss lady is about to take on the world with her new single, “Only Lovers,” and will be embarking on a U.S. tour performing a mix of originals and covers.
A baseball player or fashion designer, pro skateboarder or surfer, helicopter pilot (you know, like the kind you see in ski movies), and a coffee roaster. Seems like an eclectic bunch of individuals, but this is exactly what the Nashville-based group Judah & the Lion would have been if they hadn’t met and pursued music. While things don’t always pan out the way you imagine, these guys seem to be handling that just fine. The band is composed of frontman Judah Akers, drummer Spencer Cross, mandolin player Brian Macdonald, and banjo player Nate Zuercher.
Why Don’t We is an internet sensation, their video “Taking You” already has over 200,000 views and is growing fast. Their “Only The Beginning” EP hit #15 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Albums Chart and I’m certain that they’re the next big thing.
