Severed Stars

Severed stars are a Spanish based rock act, hailing from Zaragoza, that comprise of members from the Uk, Spain and France. They write poetic lyrics with the intention to create their own brand of “Alternate Rock” The band themselves play a fusion of prog/ and Alt rock that convey some powerful and emotional music, which could delight any listener with their epic passages, heavy drums and highly energized guitars. They have been compared to bands like Tool, My Bloody Valentin and Helmet.

Severed Stars consists of:
Robin Blackmore: vocal, guitar and songwriter
Ramon Castillon: guitar
Remy Daragon: drums
Gary Rackham: bass and bv's

Severed Stars recently released debut EP “Stormcloud Songs “last March

http://severedstars.com/ This is account is beautifully designed to match the creative minds of the band themselves with a couple of videos for new fans, as well as a nicely organized photo gallery, which features a category of recording sessions, and another of live gigs. My only criticism would be there is no biography of the group for listeners to understand who they are.

https://www.facebook.com/SeveredStars/ This is another good site from Severed Stars with a lyric video as the band’s background profile pic. I feel this really encapsulates the band's aura, where you will find updates and review of their latest singles, as well as a more informative video section for new fans.

Barefoot Modern

Alternative rock act Barefoot Modern are four young college friends from Boone, California. Yet, this is only the beginning of the story of these talented musicians who came to be. Diminutive Lead singer Tegan Dean started entering talent shows at the age of 8 singing country songs in between soccer practice, her warm vocal range will surprise many, along the classically trained drummer Caleb LeJeune, guitarist/keyboardist Robert Beverly, and bassist Hunter Evans, who spent much of their adolescence learning the stand-up bass, piano, and guitar, respectively.

They started writing at 15-year-old , and soon formed their own garage-grunge band The Bliss Trip, gaining widespread media attention and opening for national acts such as Rainbow Kitten Surprise and Jonas Sees in Color. Caleb would sing vocals, while Tegan joined in on harmony. They soon swapped roles, and before long they formed Barefoot Modern as the four started college, the guys at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, and Tegan at nearby Leas-McRae College. Barefoot Modern sing beautiful melodies entwined with a harmonious rhythm section that combine to create an enchanting collection of pop songs. The band recently released debut album “Younger Years”

https://www.facebook.com/barefootmodernband/ This is a nice site that truly shows the band’s bubbly personality. The reader is gripped instantly by the background picture of the band enjoying Christmas. The videos and pictures support this exterior image with a couple of cover tracks including Led Zeppelin’s whole lotta love, plus some nicely shot images of the band posing.

https://twitter.com/barefoot_modern This is another good site that formulates a personal touch..The band share quite a few bits of new from friends, as well as updates of their own. This gives me the feeling that they are inviting the listener into their lives.

Liron New Single Review

Once again Liron wows us all with her silky and sultry vocals. The newest single “Bad Intentions” brings out the powerful person inside us all. The song battles the nature of toxic relationships and how hard it is to walk away from them. It's aimed at both genders as toxic relationships affect us all and the song itself could be hailed as a self empowerment anthem.

Similar to the last single “Piña Coladas”, Liron carries on the fast paced beat and the radio pop sound. However, the story behind the song carries a trace of heartbreak and understanding that was missing in the previous tracks. The powerful story enables the listener to feel the emotions that Liron was going through when writing the lyrics. I'm sure you’ve all gone through a period of time with a certain somebody that didn't feel right or just wasn't working out in general. This song tackles the pain and fear of breaking away form something that you've known and been comfortable with for so long. The mature theme of the song allows listeners of all ages to relate to the feeling of heartbreak which is common during life.

Lirons vocals reach a new high in “Bad Intentions”. I mentioned before that in the earlier tracks, Liron lacked the power and confidence behind her voice, but recently we’ve seen a new side to the vocal all together. Gone is the Musician who once wrote about puppy loves and hid behind the beat of the song, and is now replaced by a Musician who is proud and self assured, who writes about the self emancipation of men and women alike.

Bad intentions includes everything needed to make a great pop song. The vocal compared with the past paced tempo creates the perfect dance track. The softer vocal compared to the snappy Paced tempo creates a layer of sophistication unseen on her previous works before “piña coladas”. The difference keeps the listener induced in a musical coma when the sound reaches their ears.

Once again Musician Liron has gone above and beyond the expectation we had for her next single. Bad intentions sounds like a pop song you would hear of the radio today and overall a Liron has done a great job perfecting her sound. I thoroughly enjoyed the latest single and I'm ready for the next!

Described as a 'no frills hard rock band', the band has shared the stage with notable acts including Halestorm, Five Finger Death Punch, Alter Bridge and Crossfade. In addition to playing with bigger acts, Veilside promote causes that are close to their hearts and play children's charity events regularly. To date, the band has three releases - two EPs and one full-length album.

Tony Engel on lead vocals.
Russ Odean on guitar and backing vocals.
Sharon Cline on guitar and backing vocals.
Ron Thomas on drums and backing vocals.
Bob Hilton on bass.

Veilside released a highly anticipated full-length album in 2018 entitled 'Eclipse'.

The band have provided an array of videos and pictures, so visitors are able to see Veilside in their onstage element! A Reverbnation band profile widget is available giving visitors access to music, press, and focus on the gig information. Overall, this is a great account with contact information, background information and a link to their official website clearly available.

https://www.veilsideband.com/ - I have no qualms in saying that Veilside's official website is one of my favourite band websites to date. The menu clearly places each aspect of the band into a specific section, even links to lyrics, personal comments and affiliate links. I enjoy the personal comments and affiliate links as it shows how much they care about engaging with the music community. A store is available, detailed background history, and both a contact box with direct email (if you prefer this option). I love it!

 

Secondhand Habit

Image credit to Kristi Leigh

The saying goes that all Canadians are super-sweet and really friendly, but that doesn't mean they have to be quiet! A force to be reckoned with, Secondhand Habit is a high voltage rock 'n' roll threesome raging from Victoria, BC. Compared to Nirvana, Alice in Chains and Guns 'N' Roses, the band has performed several national tours, performed at the Oasis Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in Stanley Park, and opened for acts such as Dead Quiet. To date, the band has released one EP entitled 'From The Ashes'.

Secondhand Habit is:

Jesse Turner on guitar and lead vocals.
Jon Yellowlees on lead guitar and backing vocals.
Levi Megebir on bass.
Skyler Wilson on drums.

In June of this year, Secondhand Habit released their single 'Bad Habit'.

https://www.facebook.com/pg/secondhandhabit/ - Secondhand Habit's Facebook account is well-maintained with some personal commentary added to their event promo posts. They also have several photographs with videos that are more personal allowing visitors an insight into the band. A Reverbnation band profile is available giving visitors access to music, official videos, event details and press quotes. My problem lies with their 'about' page - background information, contact details and a link to their official website is available; however, it would be useful to have links to other social media accounts and please update the band members.

https://secondhandhabit.com/ - Secondhand habit use the basic Bandcamp profile as their official website. An economic and beneficial option, this focuses primarily on the sales of albums with little information about the band itself. There are links to their social media accounts, a contact link, and merchandise options; however, it would be nice to read some more about the band (particularly from a press perspective).

Newborn

While Newborn is described as 'alternative rock', they are anything but. Difficult to place in an genre, or the sub-genres, this threesome from Brooklyn, NY, are proving that music is not about labels but about the music. They have a diverse and unique sound entrancing listeners across the globe, so no-one really cares what they're called. The band has released two well-received EPs and has played in some of New York's most well-known venues, such as Stage 48 and Irving Plaza.

Newborn is:

Allen James on vocals and guitar.
Eric Weglicki on bass.
Dave Goldenberg on drums.

Newborn released a new single in October, 2018, entitled 'Shadow of Your Heart'.

https://www.newbornband.com/ - Newborn's official band website is well presented and focuses greatly on the audio-visual side of their band. The menu is clearly located with official videos, playlists and photographs available; in fact, the photo section has a link to their Instagram. The background information is concise and easy to follow, which is a relief after reading many profiles. The band also has a separate contact page with a box and various direct emails. In addition to the social media account widget in the menu, I also enjoyed the press kit download on each page.

 

Son Of Prey


Son of Prey is a five-piece alternative rock band hailing from the Northern European side of the world - Denmark to be specific. When people think of Danes, we consider Vikings, and Son of Prey are as powerful in their music. A compelling sound driven by strong vocals and based on powerful themes, they are not one to miss if you're into good music. To date, they have released two EPs.

Son of Prey is:

Joakim Moe Jensen 
Mikas Merrild 
Simon L. R. Jørgensen 
Thomas Waarkjær 
Jakob Nørager Christensen

Son of Prey will be releasing a new EP soon entitled 'Alison'.

https://www.facebook.com/sonofprey/ - Son of Prey have a somewhat well-maintained Facebook account posting important information when necessary. Videos and photographs are available for visitors to peruse, and there are more personal images/videos to view making it an engaging experience. The account has a Reverbnation band profile, so there is access to music and upcoming events. I find it disappointing that the account lacks links to other social media accounts, and only basic background information is available. The greatest problem I have with this account, and this may be a personal preference, is the video header! As a person with photosensitivity, it's just annoying to have to deal with a fast moving image when trying to read information.

Jennifer B & The Groove

Jennifer B & The Groove is one of those bands that, well, you really can't define. Encompassing a range of musical genres into their sound, this talented bunch can be an easy go-to for blues, roots-rock or Americana music fans. Fronted by original singer/songwriter Jenifer Lindsey (hence the name), this Texas-based band have worked with the likes of Adrian Meyers, Van Wilks, Patrick Lyons and Mark Jones.

Jennifer B & The Groove is:

Jenifer Lindsey on vocals, keyboard and acoustic guitar.
Dr D on bass and vocals.
Jose Barragan on lead guitar and vocals.
Dan Poole on drums and vocals.

Jennifer B & The Groove has plans to release a full-length album in 2019.

https://www.facebook.com/JenniferBTheGroove/ - Jennifer B & The Groove's Facebook account is a well-maintained one with constant updates on events and other promotional items, like airplay. There are various photos and videos, plus the videos are vlogging-style making it more personal for the visitor. A Reverbnation band profile is available, which is a big pro to view official videos and event listings; however, there isn't a playlist of any sort, and this is disappointing. The account is great, but there aren't links to other social media accounts in the 'about me' section. The background information could be more detailed, but that's just me being a little bit nosy.

http://www.myjenniferbthegroove.com/ - My first thought when viewing the official website was, 'wow, that's busy!' Jennifer B & The Groove have created a site with all the information you could need ranging videos, photographs, a link to their store, event listings, and even a blog! Background information on the band is available on the front page, along with a widget showing all their social media accounts. My one concern is the website theme. While the image is an attractive one, the fact that the text boxes are transparent and in very bold colours makes it slightly overwhelming to view. It's like looking at a picture with a bunch of words placed all over it - pretty, but not something you want to look at for too long.

https://www.instagram.com/jennybgood2/ - This Instagram profile is a very well-maintained one focusing mainly on event promotion. There are some personal photos here and there, which is pleasant to increase fan engagement. Overall, I like this account because of the different types of images and the information placed in the about section.

Silver Spoons

Silver Spoons is an indie pop-rock threesome hailing from Louisville, Kentucky. Their single 'Great Unknown' received regular airplay on several regional radio stations in Louisville during 2014 after the release of their first EP Ready, Set, Stay. In 2015, the band showed a more mature sound with their single 'Falling In Love', and in 2016 the EP Reset made its way to the digital stands.

Silver Spoons is:

Gabe Riggs on guitar and vocals.
Jordan Smith on drums.
Luke Lyons on bass.

Silver Spoons released their latest single 'Heartache' in October 2018.

https://www.facebook.com/SilverSpoonsMusic/ - Silver Spoons Facebook account can be considered well-maintained if you aren't looking for anything other than basic promo. They do have several photographs and videos, but the most recent items are from 2017 - this might be a result of the band not being active for a while. A Reverbnation profile is available with music, gigs and videos, so this is engaging for visitors. The band has provided links to other social media accounts and contact details; however, I would suggest some more detailed background info. I'd also recommend removing the video header. While it is a good promotional feature, not all people are fans of a moving header and the type of video Silver Spoons use can give people with photosensitivity an instant headache.

http://silverspoonsmusic.com/ - The Silver Spoons official website landing page is clean and attractive. It provides background information and promotes their music with links to music streaming sites. If you want any more information on Silver Spoons, you need to click on the closed menu link in the right-hand corner - this is where the problem comes in. Despite the appeal of this site, people who aren't familiar with this setting won't be able to access anything beyond what is on the landing page. I recommended looking at a footer menu joining the links to other social media accounts.

Signal Versus Noise

Founded in 2012 under the name The Starship Renegade, some of the gentlemen from Signal Versus Noise started their musical journey - you'll see what I mean soon enough. After several national tours, a change in the line-up was seen and Signal Versus Noise was born - that's what I mean. A more mature pop-punk sound emerged in 2016 from the Oregon-based band, and in mid-2018 they released their debut full-length album. Influenced by Anberlin, Paramore and Jimmy Eat World, the band has a strong following that grows with every new listener.

Signal Versus Noise is:

Mark Schmidt on vocals.
Alek Kalinowski on guitar.
Josh Nunn on bass.
Nic Quinones on drums (touring).

Signal Versus Noise released their latest single 'Take It From Me' in September 2018.

https://www.facebook.com/signalversusnoise/ - this Facebook account is a well-maintained one with posts made almost every week. The posts don't focus exclusively on promo but have a personal element making them more engaging. Signal Versus Noise have several pictures on the account, but they are primarily promoting events. The videos are sparse, but the ones that are available are vlogging-style and enjoyable. The Reverbnation widget provides a playlist, and the band has a sufficient amount of background information/contact details in their 'about' section. I would recommend links to other social media sites. My biggest problem with the site is the video header and the video posts that automatically begin. It can be good for promotional reasons, but it can also cause a person to close the site if they aren't able to watch the video at that moment. People with photosensitivity can also find moving headers a problem.

https://www.reverbnation.com/Signalversusnoise - Signal Versus Noise's official website is their Reverbnation profile. A very good option to show visitors their music videos, playlist of their music, event listings, a concise background information section and some photographs - pretty much everything you need. However, I could not find any links to other social media accounts.

World5

Who said you need to be in the same country to be part of a band? Using the internet, five professional musicians created the band World5 without being in the same location. Groundbreaking? I'm not sure, but it's terribly fascinating. The band began in 2011, but it is now in its third incarnation spanning three separate continents combining a Swedish bass player, a Swedish drummer, a German guitarist and trumpeter, and two more guitarists (one of them singing lead vocals) from the US of A.

World5 is:

Lou Evans on guitar and lead vocals.
Steffen Goeres on guitar and trumpet.
Jimmy Olsson on bass.

https://www.facebook.com/World5band/ - World5's Facebook account is not well-maintained, but it isn't poorly maintained either. The posts are months apart, but this may be coinciding with band activity or inactivity. The photos and videos are exclusively promotional, but there are several music videos for people to view. The Reverbnation widget provides access to the albums, along with videos, shows and press reviews. Background information is sufficient with links to different social media accounts and contact details. The one problem I have is the video header, which seems to be a growing trend among bands. This header isn't as 'flashy' as others showing only photographs with text; however, it is still a problem if you have a poor Wi-Fi connection, are not a fan of video headers or have photosensitivity.

http://www.world5music.com/ - the official website is a highly informative one with a blog keeping people updated on their news, full contact details, extensive information the band, access to their music, access to their merchandise, and even links to different radio stations. All of their social media accounts can be accessed from the website. I don't really have any complaints.

https://www.instagram.com/world5music/ - World5 has an Instagram account with information about the band and a link to their official website. The only problem is there aren't any images on this profile. Isn't Instagram a photo sharing website?

Ryan Salata

A Native-Texan singer, songwriter Ryan Salata was surrounded with music as a child but didn’t pick up a guitar until his early years of college. Heavily influenced by his surroundings, Ryan draws inspiration from the funky urban sounds of the city leaning toward sounds with a Mo-town beat or Jack Johnson vocals. Ryan released his first EP, Thoughts on Paper, in December 2015 and has received overwhelming response from fans. Ryan continues to tour locally while working on new music for his next release.

 

Cloverhill

Cloverhill is born out of a collaboration by experienced guitarist / songwriter, Paul Laskey and accomplished producer Grant Henderson, who both have a love of good time classic rock music. With a little help from some friends, including drummer Dogz Johnson, the core of the Cloverhill sound was created. The Cloverhill sound is inspired by the roots of classic rock. We produce our music with vintage amps and guitars. We always endeavour to create a true sound, all valve all loud!!!

Jessi Campo

Jessi Campo’s distinctive and memorable voice plus glamorous attire compliment her heartfelt performances and make her an incredible entertainer with a radiant personality who captures all audiences. Often compared to Natalie Cole and Etta James in her vocal style, she is an indisputably exceptional talent, and therefore she has shared stages with Michael McDonald, Neil Sedaka, Beach Boys and other famous artists.

Brendan Pugh

Brendan John Pugh is an American Singer-Songwriter from Leonardtown, Maryland. Brendan writes entirely from personal experiences in his life, delivering a sense of authenticity to his listeners. He is known for both soulful acoustic writing and bluesy pop-rock ballads that draw an audience to the stage, no matter the venue.

Handsome Midnight

Alternative rock with class, in the vein of Foo Fighters, Third Eye Blind, and Weezer. Handsome Midnight focuses on relevant topics, and an engaging live show that can be enjoyed on a large festival stage, or a classic rock’n roll venue. Formed in early 2011, each member had already been a part of the scene for over a decade, sharing the stage with acts such as Fastball, Bowling for Soup, Throw the Fight, and other established artists. Their focus from the beginning was on a live show that performed as strongly as their album.

Richard The Rock Star

Since releasing the first single and video from the album, Rich has gained a great local following and is extending his reach nation-wide. He is also currently preparing to release his next album and official mixtape with Coast2Coast Mixtapes. As you can probably tell, RTRS is a very serious artist and plans on making it to the top and will not stop until he makes it. "Sit back, and enjoy the show man." -Rich

Better Than Grey

We’re called Better Than Grey and we’re a pop/punk band from Sofia, Bulgaria. We were established in the beginning of 2010  by our vocal Justin Case, Eddie (Bass) and FranX (Guitar) after our previous band split up. We searched for new members for few months and found Fiorelo (Guitar) and Steve (Drums). With this line up we recorded our debut album “No Way Back” in Italy in June 2011. Afterwards in September Steve went to study drums in Netherlands for four years, so we had to find another drummer. Few months later MonX came along and so this is our current lineup.

Neil Taylor

Neil Martin Taylor is a british guitarist who grew up in Bristol. As a teenager, he played in local bands before joining "Neon", featuring Curt Smith (Tears For Fears), Pete Byrne (Naked Eyes) and Rob Fisher (Climie/Fisher). He went on to form "Violent Blue" with bassist Charlie Jones (Page/Plant), later releasing the album "You Gotta Stay Young" with Magnet Records.

Mrs. Hips

Mrs. Hips is a band from the Netherlands with the vocalist Simone Roerade and a trio behind her that surveyed most genres in every which way but found themselves in a smooth, jazzy, soulful approach of playing behind Simone. She’s an exciting lady who used to be the lead-singer of world renown Alto Saxofonist Candy Dulfer but had her hits with her own band “Hips“ in the 90ties with even a nr. 1 hit in Spain. Now we see an experienced unit, Jazzy keys with a streetwise rhythm section, nevertheless with the power of a full soulband, refined and dynamic.

Brent Loveday and The Dirty Dollars

Lead singer and guitarist for the punk rock and roll band Reno Divorce, Brent Loveday puts his charm and storytelling lyrics on display with an acoustic guitar. His songs invoke a bygone era while adding a snarl and a wink. Ranging from haunting to toe tapping, he conjures up music for every mood.

Heidi Burson

Heidi Burson’s story as an artist is one of shared human experience. Very early on, she felt the poignancy of the music of singers such as Etta James and Aretha Franklin. She was struck by the power and intensity with which they expressed the longing, which we all share, for love and acceptance. These influences, coupled with her own life experiences and a generous dusting of wry humor, have helped to forge a voice and style that is uniquely fascinating.

The States

The States. It represents an idea that we are all apart of a community that has the freedom of expressing ourselves through music. Our name isn't necessarily related to the United States or anything necessarily patriotic even though there are those themes throughout our brand. Rather it's more about the representation of the states of emotions we are all in from time to time. Happy, sad, introspective, broken, angry, depressed, or in love, we wanted our music to reach out to everyone.

Hedera


Sharing a collective love for vintage timbres and instrumental variety, digital processing and samples are absent throughout their performances and recordings, instead preferring the likes of reel-to-reel effects and djembe percussion. With a name translating to “Common Ivy” in Latin and a logo representing a new approach to traditional mediums, Hedera’s persona is reflected in their imagery: a vibrant, multicolored ivy leaf. The entirety of the band’s art direction is designed by lead guitarist Anthony Formisano.



 

GENTE DEL SUR

Mediterranean Trip-Hop, combining rhythms from the Latin Funk Jazz Sou R & B & Reggae with flamenco melodies.

The Noble Impoverished

The Noble Impoverished is a wild fire. A sound influenced by bands like The Killers, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, and many others

The Noble Impoverished is the creation of two brothers passion for playing music. At the age of 15 and 17 they picked up their fathers old classical guitar and lost control to Rock & Roll. After a few years of playing in Morgantown West Virginia they moved to Connecticut to showcase this raw sound to a larger stage. The bands deep roots in rock n roll drives its intense live performances, their strong melodies colliding with a savage energy that makes their show something not easily forgotten.

NIALAND

A sound so melodic, so soulful, so eclectic and full of passion and purpose…a style so powerful it reaches audiences of all kinds. A style like that is rare, and yet that style is synonymous with the sound of Nialand. Nialand, or Nia which she is most known as, is a style all on her own. Self-described as weird, her gift is creative, full of truth, mixed with some edge and delivered in a plethora of harmonies and smooth tones that is incomparable and sets her apart from many artists today. Influenced by Jazz, Classic Hip Hop, and Soul Music, Nialand puts her heart, soul, experience and truth in her music presenting an undeniably powerful musical experience.

Vajra

Vajra was formed by composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist, Annamaria Pinna during her self-imposed exile in India. The child of a former monk and school teacher, Annamaria was encouraged to learn about the world around her and to question her assumptions. She believes there is divinity in creativity. Annamaria has a neurological condition called synesthesia, where she attaches color and shapes to sound.

 

The Humidors

“Everything The Humidors play is given a heavy contemporary spin that splinters dance floors and leaves audiences in a sweaty daze. The band is a well-oiled unit with a polyrhythmic approach that balances short, sharp solos with an overwhelming collective approach.” - J. Poet, SF Weekly Hailing from the Bay Area, The Humidors have been churning out their own unique brand of party music for half a decade. Combining elements of hard-hitting funk, greasy soul, vintage R&B, soul jazz and more you can be sure that this eight-piece unit is committed to the groove in all its shapes and forms.
