Pearl Handled Revolver

It's music that sounds like it's coming up through the gutter from a subterranean blues club that is frequented by a collection of vagabonds and circus freaks tripping on hallucigens.' - Powerplay

The retro-rockers from Bedfordshire sounded a warning shot with last year's debut album Colossus. Now they're about to return... with a follow-up called This Mountain Waits that adds the priceless element of maturity to the mix. - Classic Rock Magazine

The Critically Famed

Birthed out of Chicago, Illinois The Critically Famed was founded by brothers Josh and Jeremy Sentner on May 13th, 2017. The band is currently in the studio creating their debut album "music for the city." Full of chill vibes and smooth, passionate vocals over driving rhythms and energetic, sparkling guitar riffs; this record is set to release Spring of 2018. Following the release, The Critically Famed is set to play the "music for the city" Tour this upcoming Summer.

Teddy Matthews

Teddy Mathews is a guitarist and singer/song writer from Worcestershire. With his recently released singles ‘LOVE’ & ‘WORRY’ it would seem Teddy has slipped under our musical radar. Within the last month he’s been aired on BBC introducing, gigged at some of our local music festivals. As well as finding time to film a music video and putting together and rehearsing with a live 4 piece band to take on the road.

Greg Harrison Band

After a near death experience, Greg Harrison decided music was the best medicine for his soul. So after many months of mental and physical struggles he decided to make it his life. He started playing many shows but eventually got tired of playing alone.
So he went out and snagged up lead guitarist, John Bonnett. Greg and John had occasionally played shows together in the past so they knew they could at least have a good time jamming together.  Show's we're going great for the two of them but after a few gig's they felt in definite need of some percussion. It just so happened they didn't have to look too far, as good friend and multi-talented Zack Lilley, just happened to be free to join in on the fun. Not only does Zack keep the beats but he brings great writing skills to the band as well.

Marly Kay Music

Looking back on her childhood, Marly Kay admits that if you had asked her then if she had ever imagined being a singer, the response would have been no. Growing up in a family of all boys, Marly Kay dedicated most of her time to sports, and much less to the arts...minus her extreme passion for the piano. It wasn't until a debilitating knee injury that kept her out of the games that Marly literally "fell into" the love of singing, and has never, and will never look back. 

Since the time when a close friend first asked her to perform in a local pop/classic rock cover band, Marly Kay has grown from being just the singer of a band, to defining her own identity as an artist. In addition to writing and composing her songs, Marly is also a multi-instrumentalist who dedicates most of her time outside of the studio educating aspiring young musicians and vocalists to pursue their dreams as she has pursued hers.

Karen Lee Andrews

Karen Lee Andrews (Formerly known by her stage name Ms Murphy) came into the public’s awareness in 2013, through her soul slaying performances on TV’s hit show, The Voice Australia. Ms Andrews has that rare gift to communicate the unspeakable. Cameron Adams, from the Herald Sun, says, “Ms Andrews has one of those authentic sounds you hear, even through the gloss of TV, you can tell she has lived and loved.” Her sensibility allows the audience to surrender to the music, the experience is mutually warm and commanding.

Indigo Storm Band

Indigo Storm is rapidly becoming known for original composition packed with interesting lyrics, powerful vocals, and outstanding instrumentals that simply draw you in. CJ Jones (guitar and vocals), Ryan Slayton (drums), and David DeWolfe (bass), join forces to generate their brand of contagious rock. As noted by Indigo Storm listeners: 

"The riffs came down hard and fast without any warningwhatsoever. Now I know how it feels to live in Kansas during tornado season."

Search For George

Formed in the early 90s by brother and sister Mark and Mary Dahm(Timmer) and their friends and coworkers Dion Raymond, Scott Rasmussen, Kurt Brost and Mike Vermillion, search for george rose through the ranks of the Sioux Falls music scene from a three-piece cover band to one of the region's most popular original acts. Their self-titled debut CD dropped in 1996 to critical and popular acclaim, setting the band on a course that saw them play to packed houses across the Midwest.

When seeing live music, it comes down to the improvisational Jams for me. When offered a free ticket to the Sold Out Glass Animals at the 9:30, I perused their catalog on Spotify and thought it would be a change of pace and something different to write about for my ever-growing portfolio. With that in mind, I'll just jump right in.


 
I was unimpressed with this group, which has gained immense popularity over the past few years and it makes me feel as though I am disconnected with the younger generation in today's society, especially musically but I suppose that's what growing up is all about. There were people at this show who seemed like they had their life changed, people singing every word, jumping up and down, woman swooning. I haven’t seen anything like it in the Jam world, where musical prowess exceeds catchy lyrics and electronic “drops.”

Glass Animals needs to find their funky side, get in touch with the roots of the music they are playing, instead of accentuating the pop bullshit. There were some moments within their performance that were well done, thought out and original but these seemed to be overshadowed by the musical/performance process itself.

While high in energy, Glass Animals could only keep my interest for a short time before ultimately, I kept wondering, "When will I hear a freakin’ guitar solo?" The musical capabilities of this band seems highly limited and very pop-keyboard centric, which with all due respect, takes a certain skill set of its own but it's not really in the same class of musicianship that I am used to seeing; it's more learning to synthesize and arrange computer sounds. The lyrics to their songs were catchy and again, pop oriented but I could see something there beyond the surface level. I would suggest that Glass Animals searches these depths to find the true nature of their lyrical qualities and musical abilities. Perhaps visiting the Talking Heads catalog and learning how to incorporate true musicianship and lyrical competency into what they are trying to achieve.

Olivia Henry grew up in Los Angeles, singing and writing poems. At an early age, she began classical vocal training with a Belgian Opera singer, and furthered her training in jazz, contemporary, and musical theatre. While attending CalArts conservatory Olivia sustained a debilitating back injury, and due to her immobility, began teaching herself piano and put music to her lyrics. She has since written dozens of songs, self released her debut EP Sessions in 2014, and is thrilled to be releasing her first full length album produced by Doug Makuta (Timbaland’s publishing imprint ole-Bluestone) this summer.
