GOLIATH

 Let your guard down, lower your arsenal

Let's go another round, let's burn it to the ground

Watch it go up in flames if you're not satisfied

Why do we even try, why'd you have to say goodbye

Hey I'm talking to you, I know the pain you've been thru

I love those things that you do

Feel the weight of the world descending of your back

Is there a wall around me, I just can't seem to find

Reload your weapon I'm taking a dive

You can call me Goliath

Wearing David strive

I'll climb the highest tree, swim in the darkest sea

End this calamity, come to reality

Watch it go up in flames if you're not satisfied

Why do we even try, why'd you have to say goodbye

Hey I'm reaching to you, I know the pain you've been thru

I love the things that you do

Feel the weight of the world descending of your back

Is there a bridge behind me,

I'll burn it to the ground

Reload your weapon I'm taking a dive

You can call me Goliath

Wearing David strive

A four-piece band supported by a wall of sound in our live performance influenced by everything and anything simple, sounding unlike anything else you’ve ever heard whilst sounding exactly like everything else you would ever want to hear.

CELLAR DOOR

Am I a victim of circumstance?

Or can I lean on to you?

Present the jury with your defense

Guilty verdict by random chance

Was I replaced with a perfect tense?

Got my time wasted on you

Let's keep those theories for rainy days

She might be telling the truth

So trap me, close the cellar door

I think, I've been here before

Dungeon walls they feel so cold

Torture me with words of gold

Was it sacrifice, lonely paradise

A sullen box of tears

Dirty alibis in a whiskey glass

A lifetime worth of lies... How do you survive?

I turn around and I fall asleep

Cannot stay awake

Why should I shed my skin for you?

Nightmare's coming to play

Thief and a liar, I'm finally sober

Started this fire, I am the motor

Flames rising higher, over my shoulder

Burning desire, but I'm getting colder

REVOLUTION

Free your mind from electrical thoughts

Learn to release what you have been taught

Find me a reason, find me a reason

To fight

Self-absorbed, concieded and blonde

Get on your knees, obey and succumb

This is a reason, this is a reason

To fight

This should be a reason, a reason to fight!

Save your soul, maybe I'm not able

To belong, this is not a fable

Look for more, than some crumbs

Right of your table

Revolution come on,

Revolution, tag along

See the forest thru the trees

Reminisce childhood memories

This is a reason, this is a reason

To fight Is there a cure for this disease

Hurricane rises from a breeze

This is a reason, this is a reason

To fight This should be a reason, a reason to fight!

Does it hurt? Does it sting?

Does it burn from somewhere within?

Lovesick Radio are a Pop/Rock band formed in 2006 in Las Vegas, Nevada, borne out of an ever growing pedigree for success. The six- piece unit are fronted by Lead singer Troy Brown whos is joined by Drummer Matt Seskevics, Bassist Glenn Viers and guitarists David Harris and Matt Bores.

They have toured extensively throughout the States in support of prestigious acts like Kid Rock, Bon Jovi, Scott Weiland, Three Days Grace etc . As well as this, They have toured across the Far- East in countries like Japan South Korea and China, including a recent appearance at ChangJiang Music Festival. They have even featured on MTV programmes “My Sweet Super Sixteen and “Bands on the Rise” They have been described as an “ unapologetic arena pop-rock band that you actually want to hear”. This is a fair assessment from a band with an arsenal of well written rock songs that focuses on Love, Betrayal and social disorders.

The band write wholesome music full of Rock ‘N’ Roll attitude coupled with a hint of Honky Tonk and blues influences that bring that much needed swagger modern day rock acts crave.

I will be looking at a few tracks from their back catalogue, before there upcoming LP is released.

Numb Me Up ( Stripped) is an acoustic version of the original hit. This track is a ballad I personally feel is about a man talking about the struggles he finds in a relationship with a loved one. The basic strumming patterns and hushed vocals produce an unlayered track full of melodies.

Tell Me Why is a pulse rating hard rock tune that has Boogie Rock influences . The opening riff adds salvo with slide guitar effects that adds an extra layer to the music .A huge pop chorus blends with the high energy of the music and the defiant message that will keep those fists pumping.

Hooray ( She Got Her Way) shows the band’s blues influences growing. The mid-tempo feel adds a confident vibe to the song’s structure. Brown snarls about a promiscuous woman full of sarcasm with trumpets added in the background and meaty riff that is testament to the musical craftsmanship

Come Together is an anthem that shows how the sounds evolves. This guitar orientated track has a tenacious riff that blends with soulful vocals and tasty breakdowns with a delicious solo that fits in towards the end.

Lovesick Radio certainly deserve more success. It will be interesting to hear anymore capabilities from the new LP.

https://www.facebook.com/LoveSickRadioBand/ The page is encouraging for fans with updated information on concert dates, news , colourful pictures and an opportunity for a livestreaming gig via Stageit.

https://twitter.com/lovesickradio This is another good page for fans with snippets of the band in the studio and information on further gigs. This provides a more personal interaction with followers, which I enjoyed reading.

Band Interview

Could you tell us how you first met The Old School Project?

First I wanted to say thanks for taking the time to interview the band. As for the question; I wish I had a better answer for this but it was through the power of the Internet.

Could you explain to new listeners how you first met? And why you chose to form a band?

This version of LSR really came together after Troy and I ( David) recorded “ Hooray (She Got Her Way)”. We really enjoyed the process and decided to write some more songs together and just see what happens. After that things just started happening fast & we are still playing catch up.

What is the reason behind the name?

The name came from something our old drummer said. He was going through a break up and mentioned how every song he was hearing on the radio was about heartbreak. It was almost like the radio was love sick. We all just kinda looked at each other and said I think we have the name.

You recently performed at the Changjiang Music Festival in China, Could you tell us a bit about that experience?

This was our third time in China. We love the Country and the people. It’s pretty crazy to play for a few hundred thousand people. The people that bring us over and their crew are some of the best people to work with. Plus the crowds are great and we can’t wait to go back! We feel blessed to get to travel to all these different counties.

    

You have also performed in Japan and South Korea, What is a usual Far- East crowd like compared to a home crowd?

Each country and town are different. But the thing that’s really the same throughout the world no matter where you are is music brings people together. Everyone is there is have a good time and so are we!

Did you get to go sightseeing around the area? And the festival itself?

Sometimes we do! And when we get the chance we definitely love getting out to the city or around the people at the shows. But a lot of the time all we get to see is what we see through the window of the bus as we pass these beautiful landscapes.

Where there any local bands in particular that caught your eye?

There was this band that went on before us in China that was killer. I’m blanking on the name right now! We love catching the bands sets that we get to share the stage with.

You have some dates coming up, could you tell fans what to expect from the shows, and do you have any guests?

The shows are going to be fun with a ton of energy. We are looking forward to getting out with Wayland for a few dates. They are great live !

You have had the privilege to share the stage with an array of musicians like Scott Weiland, Hinder, Three Days Grace, Paramore and a host more, what was it like to perform with them, and who was the biggest influence on the band?

For me Scott Weiland was huge. I grew up loving Stone Temple Pilots and still do. Bon Jovi & Kid Rock was pretty crazy as well cuz those were stadium shows. And I think everyone grew up hearing those bands songs on the radio non -stop.

The band’s latest single “You Should’ve Known” is been broadcasted ON Air  on The Old School Project 24/7.

Published in Europe Section

Stead Job is an old-school rock band from the metropolitan area of São Paulo, Brazil that hits the road on a customized yellow van called "The Kombosa Submarine" (Any reference to a certain quartet of Liverpool is not a coincidence). These four Classic Rock´n 'Roll aficionados bring a part of rock history live to the stage. I talked to Vanessa Abreu, lead singer and guitar player is responsible for the amazing female vocals. She represents the Pin Up and of the 50´s.

 

 

(GF) Characterization is an important element not only of your performance, but it seems to be part of the very concept of the band. Can you tell us more about it?

(VA) We thought of a way of mixing the previous experiences of the members, who had been over 20 years on the road in many bands of different styles. We dress as characters who represent our favorite decades in the history of rock music. I am the Pin Up, with red lipstick, representing the 1950´s aura. I also try to show that there is a place for women in rock. Lêu Abreu, the drummer, is the hippie of the 1960s. His costumes evokes the vibe of Woodstock. Renatera, the bass player is passionate about the 1970´s Groove and Marquinhos Carvalho, guitar player, is a represents the geek culture of the 80's.

(GF) What is the typical repertoire of a show?

(VA) The show's repertoire includes a hand full of classics, hit songs from Led Zeppelin, Queen, Janis Joplin and Creedence, among others. The Brazilian rock is represented by Rita Lee and Raul Seixas. And, of course, there´s also Beatles. Actually, we got the name of the band from the lyrics of "She came in through the bathroom window" and "Paperback Writer". We like to think of it as the perfect soundtrack for a road trip.

(GF) Who is in the audience of Steady Job?

(VA) The band has been together for three years and after almost a hundred shows in the curriculum, we realize that Steady Job attracts both young and old children interested in the sound and the story of rock music. Our motto is "Rock brings people together". I think the elderly have their memories revived and youngsters start to learn about the rhythm and develop a taste for it. Sometimes our fans turn into friends these relationships go beyond show days and come to life in genuine friendships. Last year we recorded a CD with the favorites of the audience. It also included the single "Three Wishes", the group's first composition.

(GF) How about future projects?

At the end of this year, we will record our first EP! We still don´t have an official release date, but I can already tell you that the album is full of love stories, from different points of view. We mixed the melodic styles of folk and powerful choruses of pop, but with a vintage signature, that is our trademark.

Give us some LOVE!!

New bands and artists under our microscope!!

Don't Miss previews articles:

Update #1 Update #2  Update #3  Update #4

 

Dennis Jones

High-energy stage performance. Sizzling hot guitar solos. Smooth and soulful vocals. Backed by a rhythm section that is second to none, this IS Dennis Jones. Check out a live show, and you’ll instantly agree, this band ROCKS the blues like NO other!

Dennis's feet are firmly rooted in the past, yet his heart and soul are connected to the present. He writes songs that seamlessly blend the best of both worlds, presenting a unique and contemporary style of American rock and blues.

Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, and now based in Los Angeles, California, Jones continues to pursue his musical goal of becoming a top entertainer in his field. With five well-regarded CD releases to date, Jones' vision has never been more in focus.

Audio Revival

Formed in New York City in late 2012, Audio Revival is an unlikely collection of band geeks and one former Second Team All-Big East linebacker for the Syracuse Orange football team. With the help of three-time Grammy award-winning producer Dave Clauss (Shakira, Marin Morris,Justin Bieber, U2, Paul Simon), Audio Revival released a series of singles in 2015, to critical fanfare and spent much of the year playing shows across the Northeast.

Indie Lagone

Indie Lagone's music is a myriad wall of sound comprised of a hard rock feel shadowed by sleek undertones and is filled with genre defying ideas. Lagone's lyrical content is engulfed in the introspection, addictions and rising above adversity.

The songs are all balanced by a twist of musical sensibility that is grounded by an idea of not overworking rhythms and melodies. Songwriting within the band is all hinged on the thought that a good song should influence, stand alone and not be overplayed. It is not how many notes you can play but how you can get them to collide and react with one another. The band has attempted to create a mood reminiscent of a Quentin Tarantino film.

 

Cat Ridgeway

Cat Ridgeway, a singer/songwriter hailing from Orlando, Florida, is a skilled lyricist and melodist. Cat’s eclectic style shines through her ability to play guitar and harmonica (at the same time!), trumpet, trombone, drums, piano, and bass. Cat has worked with several notable producers, including Greg Rike (producer of Deep Purple and The Back Street Boys) and most recently, Ben Cooper (co-writer of Ricky Skaggs’ Grammy award winning album “Mosaic”). Cat's most recent project "Passenger Seat" is a direct result of her overfunded Kickstarter campaign "Cat Goes to Nashville". She had the privilege of working with the likes of Gordon Kennedy (co-writer of "Change the World" recorded by Eric Clapton) and many other seasoned Nashville players on the EP.

Chris Eves and the New Normal

Chris Eves and the New Normal blur the lines between rock, funk, and blues with a healthy dose of jam band influences. Thoughtful lyrics blend seamlessly with solid roots rock riffs, pop sensibilities and, catchy hooks. Based out of Syracuse NY, the band has shared the stage with such diverse artists as the Zac Brown Band, Jon Fishman of Phish, Gov't Mule, Cheap Trick, Gregg Allman and many others. Their debut album is now available on all music services.

The Late Greats

THE LATE GREATS are a Manchester/Sheffield-based duo made up of David Benjamin (Lead Vocals) and Steve Marsden (Guitar).

Their material is a blend of alternative rock and Americana. Individually these two experienced musicians have performed at Glastonbury, Download, Secret Garden, Other Voices, Reading and Leeds Festival and have also supported a variety of big acts, from the Killers to Paloma Faith.

Tom Petty, the Replacements, Warren Zevon, Bruce Springsteen and Ryan Adams are among their main musical influences.

The Swills

The Swills are a new independent band from Vancouver, BC Canada. They’ve been together since 2006, with very humble beginnings as a true garage band, complete with a rehearsal space in a bus depot!
They’ve made a name for themselves with their fans by putting on high-energy shows designed to make people move. They’re also known for their social conscience, both in the songs they write, and by putting on shows for various charities. To date, they have raised over $3000 for such local charities as Covenant House and The BC Prader-Willi society. Moving forward, they plan on producing and performing in at least two charity events per year. 
Their first self-produced record, Travelling Thru Time, released in 2008, was well received by college and independent radio stations, and The Swills are excited to build on that success with their new record, which draws heavily from their punk rock and blues rock influences, to create a unique hard-rocking sound.

Chasing Shadows

We’re Chasing Shadows.
We’re here to write music we love taking the music we grew up with and hear now as inspiration. Our songs are about real life as we see it. Growing up in a town that has seen better days is nothing new for our generation, neither is a relationship that hasn’t gone quite the way you thought it might. We’re here to tell our stories, we’re to hit the chords we all know and mix it with melodies that will make you sing.
Since the Chasing Shadows journey started in August 2014 at the Kings Head in Rhuddlan, North Wales, we have played as much as we can, for as long as we can, as often as we can.

Paper City Exile

​Paper City Exile, a band from Western Mass, was created by 3 students of music. 

Paper City Exile is cutting a fresh path in music. 
Our collective love of R&B, alternative rock, vintage surf, and east / west coasts rock provides the platform for our distinct feel and sound. That's evident in our new releases. Each member has respect for the true art of music, and the band hopes to keep the art alive by "being a good musician first."
Members include Dan Conway on lead, keyboards and vocals, Jackson Silverman on drums, and Zeno Quinn pounding out the bass line.

ANIMAL

Why am I the only one?

Who can see thru this facade

Viciously I raise the gun

Silently I kill your God

Chamber's cold, I'm like the Sun

Bullet ride and spitting blood

Chewing foil and pulling teeth

Forgot to breathe...

Mother, this fear just won't go away

Father, animal inside of me

Mother, my mind playing tricks on me

Father, throw away the key

Iron bars defy the sun

Moon is casting shadows down

Fly away on paper wings

Don't you think that...

As dark fades right before the daw

Love is a game and I'm merely a pawn

As dark fades right before the dawn

Love is a game and I'm merely a pawn
