Alteras from Youngstown, Ohio are proving you don’t have to classify yourself in a genre, you just need to deliver great music! They can be described as hardcore, post hardcore, hard rock, whatever you want to call it. But simply put, they are five guys creating the music that is built on their passion. They almost remind me of a blend of I See Stars and 18 Visions. They have a great melodic style finessed into a heavier hardcore base. Perfect fit, so check them out. Here is a video for their song, Heartseaker which is off their EP Shapeshifter:

The song comes from their six song EP Shapeshifter which was released in December of last year, available on iTunes, It is just now gaining momentum and they are getting the recognition they deserve.  You can also check out acoustic live version of Black Box:

There is a new acoustic wonder that I would like to introduce you to. Shaun Grant is a talented singer/songwriter from Newcastle UK. Sometimes after playing in bands you decide when is the right time to travel that different path and do at alone and present your solo material to the world. Well that time is now for Shaun and we welcome his refreshing and soul touching sound.
Shaun has a charming voice and with his easy listening and romantic lyrics will have you singing along in no time. His music is melodic and lyric driven which invites the listener and captivates them with his catchy verses.  If you like Oasis or Ed Sheeran and romance of David Gray, you will be immediately drawn into Shaun’s music.

You can currently hear two of Shaun’s song on soundcloud at and I think you will really enjoy them. I especially love the violin on his song, “Make You Mine” it completes the song.  I look forward to hearing more from Shaun Grant and hope you join me in following his upcoming releases.

~ Enjoy, Marisol
