Written by The Old School Project

Final Update for this week boys and girls...

We checked a lot of bands but we picked a few!

We present....



Brady Wade

Born and raised in California, Brady Wade has been composing music in a wide variety of genres, spanning from Rock, Adult Alternative, R&B, Soul, Country and Contemporary Christian. Working with some of the best producers and undiscovered artists, he has created The Brady Wade Sessions featuring just a few of his extensive song collection which includes over 200 songs in his catalogue. 
All Music and Lyrics on this page written and produced by Brady Wade, ASCAP.

Jim Duff

Duff, whose ancestry dates back to the 10th Scottish king of Alba or Scotland, grew up in Waynesburg, KY. He also spent time living in areas such as Charlotte, NC, Los Angeles, CA, Las Vegas, NV and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Nowadays, his home is in Austin TX. He first picked up a guitar at age 12 and was instantly hooked. He taught himself the guitar as well as the piano, mandolin and drums over the years.
His style reflects many of the artists in his record collection. There are greats such as Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson lined up alongside Eric Clapton, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Guy Clark. Jim combines traditional Country ballads with flashes of Southern Rock and Blues that come together to create a sound that is both familiar yet refreshingly new.


Being exposed to music my whole life, it only seemed natural to pursue a career in music. Inspired by my mother’s singing and songwriting abilities, it was like having my own private vocal instructor; she taught me everything I know about singing. About 8 years ago, I ventured into producing music to accompany her original lyrics, and the music blossomed from there. Since then we have been churning out lyrics, beats and vocals. After being holed up in the studio for the past year in a creative bubble, it was time to start giving the music wings and start releasing it


The Wildwoods

Nebraska natives, The Wildwoods, bring a pioneering sound to Americana Roots Music. Their heartwarming lyrics and vocals are wrapped in a style of music that is like no other. With influences from old time country masters and today’s Indie/Folk sound, The Wildwood’s nostalgic melodies captivate people of all ages.

Andrew Stellman managing editor from Hear Nebraska wrote “There are perhaps few Nebraska acts that represent a merger of past and present quite like The Wildwoods, and if it’s taken you this long to notice, take the opening track of its new album Sweet Nostalgia. The young songwriting tandem of Chloe Pinkman and Noah Gose harmonize like something out of the Depression Era, fitted with a certain weight yet warmly and triumphantly capable of lifting hearts regardless.”

Saint Alto

Saint Alto are a four piece alternative indie folk band. Only a few shows in, Saint Alto has gathered attention for 'hauntingly beautiful' songs paired with the drive of indie folk found in artists such a Ben Howard and Bon Iver. 

Like going to a church where you suspect nobody is a believer but all are in good voice (and the organ has been switched for a nord). These hymns are broken but beautiful all the same. If Vangellis scored a Ray Lamontagne gig it might sound like this. Guitar, vocals, harmonies, drums and claps are offset with synths, atmospheric swells and bass that rattles the rib cage. Lyrically addressing human flaws, love, depression, mind games and the 'oddness' of modernity, the music is shot through with hope; soaring synths, group harmonies and an impassioned lead vocal described as 'maybe the best unsigned vocal in the country'. Songs like Manifesto for Suburbia have all the drive, hope and resistance of early Arcade Fire and are offset against songs like Tell Me Something, a broken electronic folk love song with a 'heartbreakingly pretty, dark and beautiful vocal'.

The Rocky Burning Band

Rocky Burning is alive with ambition. This is a point made readily apparent every time he takes the stage. Rocky has come to his current state of being by traversing a gamut of rock and roll pitfalls and coming out the other side unscathed. He cut his teeth fronting the psychedelic hard rock band "amongst the monks" for several years as they churned out their freshman and sophomore records. They recorded in New York City and toured around eastern U.S. Now Rocky has moved upward and onward recording his 5 song EP "drinking champagne in public" which he has released under his own name. This work is definitively anthemic blues rock taken to the nth degree. It's a classic revival blended with some mod tones and lyrics. The endless hooks attack like ebola and are nearly as difficult to get away from. Listen to the record, watch Rocky perform and your inner rock 'n' roll addict will thank you.

The Actual Situation

The Actual Situation is an original four piece Rock band from New Port Richey, Florida, with aspirations to entertain everywhere and everyone they can, hopefully both in and outside the Sunshine State. The band includes: Don Alexander (on lead guitar and vocals), Ash Spillius (on rhythm Guitar and lead vocals), Christina Gallardo (on bass) and Jesse Daw (on drums). Don graduated MIRA SPC with an AS in audio engineering, and Ash is in school at MIRA SPC for composition and has professionally recorded for various professional YouTube channels. This is Christina's first experience in a band (we’ve been teaching her for about a year and a half!), and Jesse is almost done with the production track of the MIRA program and specializes in electronica sounds as well as running live sound for venues in St. Petersburg, FL such as The Hideaway. He has been drumming with The Actual Situation for 6 months and is fitting in great!

Crow Mother

Crow Mother is rock band from Riga (Latvia) whose music is based on classic rock from the golden age of music in 70s but with some refreshing touch of progressive and psychedelic rock music.

Formed in March 2012 band joins together musicians who has been friends through numerous different bands for long time before joining their forces and inspiration under the name of Crow Mother.

Shortly after forming in 2012 band kicked off with recording their first two singles called Killing the Love and Sugar, Blood & Wine. First two records were more like experiment for band to find its own sound that became more individual in their next two singles – Winterland and Smile Like You Care. Crow Mother quickly claimed its place on local club stages and played at some of the largest music festivals in Baltics.

The Amber Bugs

Like the single malts that warm our throats some things just have to be stowed away in a barrel or encased in the sap of an ancient forest's tree before they can have their fleeting moment of glory. Having played together in other bands for close to a decade in 2015 Ben, Jon and Teresa formed The Amber Bugs in a dirty London railway arch. Songs aren't quite sung, they are ripped from a throat that can't get them out any other way. Instruments are hit hard and stories are told with honesty and passion.

Dirty Faction

A new wave of innovation, Dirty Faction blend EDM and heavy rock into a new, melodic fashion with catchy hooks without compromising intensity behind the music and lead the next generation of musicians to come. The band has been described as a mix of bands such as Metallica and Avenged Sevenfold with a strong electronic presence with sounds similar to deadmau5, Eric Prydz and Above & Beyond. The trio is formed of Roman on vocals, Lapush on guitar and Doug on drums. Dirty Faction’s philosophy is to bring people from all backgrounds together through the energy of the music and inspire the people brought together through the live experience Dirty Faction invite everyone to be a part of.
