We are getting really close to the release of the new CD, Golden from blues rockers Delta Rose. This is one album that is well worth the wait! The album is set to release on December 2nd but you can get your pre-order in NOW by visiting their website: This past year it seemed that many things were said about Rock n Roll, from it being dead, or no new bands, etc. Well you can forget about all that! Rock n Roll is alive and thriving and when you take a listen to the new album from Delta Rose, you will strongly agree with me. They have such a welcoming sound that you just can’t wait to tell all your friends about them.

Earlier this year, Delta Rose had the great honors of opening for Guns n Roses  at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. They delivered a top notch set and have everyone leaving the venue, knowing who Delta Rose is! They always perform a kick ass set and Delta Rose is one of the best live bands out there. They are such a young band but have showmanship that is well beyond their years. While many young bands are out there creating music that sounds as if it is a carbon copy of eachother, Delta Rose is creating their own style of music. It is pure blues and rock n roll and it is addictive.

Check out their song, One Is Too Many which is off their new album, Golden :


To all the people who are crying out for new music and to bring rock and roll back to the forefront, Delta Rose is the answer to your rock and roll prayers. Their new album shows how much this band has grown in 7 years, each one perfecting their own art and have mastered their own style. As I have said before, You can feel the passion in their songs as one message rings true…. These boys are ready to ROCK! They have an upcoming show at the Canyon Club this Thursday. Check their site for more details and upcoming show dates! Check out the slide show of photos from Rockin Ryan from their Troubadour set here:

From the studio to the band, there is quite an amazing amount of talent put into this stellar album. The album was recorded at the legendary NRG Studios, mixed by Steve Hardy (Blue October, Vertical Horizon, Joe Bonamassa, and many more), mastered by iconic Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Ramones, Pantera, and many, many more). The album is produced by Bill Schleifer and Isaac Hasson. It truly is a work of art and we are even treated to Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dizzy Reed (Guns n Roses) who plays keyboards on their song 10 Long Years.

The album is filled with smoking guitar solos, cool group chants, vibrant blues licks, solid drumming, infectious basslines and the most captivating and edgy yet sweet as honey vocals you will ever hear.  Delta Rose’s new album has definitely polished and perfected true rock and roll.

So get your pre-order in and make sure to pick up a few extra copies for all your rocker friends this holiday season! It is time to spread the Delta Rose love!  For now, visit their social media sites and stay tuned for all their latest news.

When is the last time you heard a song that really left you with chills or a feel good feeling deep in your soul leaving you with butterflies in your stomach and hope in your heart? Well, I do because I remember the first time I heard Top of the World from Greek Fire, that is exactly how I felt.  It was amazing and still is every time I hear it. The song is on their Lost EP which was released earlier this year but it has been gaining in popularity as it is currently featured in Disney’s Big Heroes 6 film. Check out the song in the Disney trailer here:

I know my seven year old has been begging me to take him to see the movie and I can’t wait! I am so glad to see Greek Fire get the attention they so well deserve. The track not only soaring guitars, emotionally driven lyrics but a chorus that makes you feel invincible. Having the track picked up by Disney has not only put the spotlight on this great band, but the song is one that will lift the hearts of many. It is truly a beautiful song that bridges a connection to listener.

‘Formed in 2008, Greek Fire is most known for consisting of members from Story of the Year(Philip Sneed better known as “Moon” on vocals and Ryan Phillips on guitar) and Maybe Today,(Johnny Venus on drums and Mark Joseph Roth on bass).  In 2012, the band, their families and fans were devastated with their Johnny Venus’ leukemia diagnosis and thankfully he is currently in remission, making their current success that much sweeter for the team.’

Check out the official music video of the song from Greek Fire which I absolutely love, here:

‘This December, Greek Fire will play three shows with Story of the Year and The F!*K Off and Dies. The string of shows is appropriately titled, “Family Night” as all three bands feature members of Story of the Year. This is the first time all three bands have played together. ‘ Dates are listed below:

  • 12/3-  Columbia, MO – The Blue Note
  • 12/4- Chicago, IL- The Bottom Lounge
  • 12/5- St. Louis, MO- The Pageant

Matt Nathanson recently made a trip to Peru with the Starkey Hearing Foundation on a mission to fit people with free hearing aids. As Matt says,

” i’ve been trying to write a short piece
about my experience for weeks now.
it’s been really hard. words kinda fail it.
if i didn’t have my hearing, i wouldn’t have music.
and if i didn’t have music, i definitely wouldn’t have
survived my childhood. listening to albums and
seeing bands and being connected to songs was
EVERYTHING to me. it still is. it makes me feel not
alone. it helps me transcend my broken brain.
in fact, the only reason i play music is because i
love it so much. i couldn’t stay on the sidelines,
i HAVE to be a part of it.


Going to peru was super heavy.
the people were incredible.
to be in service to them, to assist in
connecting them to their kids laughter,
to their parents voices, to MUSIC!…
it was completely humbling.
and overwhelming.
i felt love and gratitude towards other human
beings on a level i’ve never experienced.

see? it’s really hard to put into words…
so i’m glad we shot footage and made a video while
we were there. it does a WAY better job explaining
than i ever could.” 

Matt released a video for his song, Headphones featuring LoLo and it includes the footage from his trip to Peru. As you may not know, I am 100% Peruvian so it really is great to see the wonderful work that he and the Starkey Hearing Foundation has done. 100% of artist and label proceeds from this video are being donated to Starkey Hearing Foundation. For more information on how you can help, go to

Download the song on iTunes Amazon on Spotify

What an amazingly inspirational video and truly heartwarming! Matt is currently in London working on the next record and we truly can’t wait for it. Make sure to visit his social media sites and stay up to date on his latest news.

Pop punks Me Vs. Hero have released a music video for their song, Hang In which is off of their new album, I’m Completely Fine which was release in September and you can pick it up on iTunes here. This songs means a lot to us” explains Thompson of the new track “It’s literally about hanging in there when times get bad. At one point when we wrote this record there was a three month period where I was homeless. I had three big bags for all my stuff and had no idea where I was sleeping most nights. The song is an accurate depiction of his life at that point. It’s something that, if you go through, you will make sure never happens again.”  Check out the video here:

The song is the perfect track to get you through those challenges and struggles which we face and think that we can never overcome. Sometimes looking back at all the things you have been through, gives you right amount of strength to get over the next hurdle. Me Vs. Hero bring such a solid connection to their listeners through their emotionally driven music that is also fun spirited and vibrant.

Me Vs Hero are:

  • Samuel James Thompson – Vocals
  • Michael Booth – Bass
  • Bobby Pook – Guitar
  • Grant Berry – Guitar
  • Simon Smith – Drums

It has been seven years since the brutal murder of Sophie Lancaster who was killed simply because she looked different in someone else’s eyes. A beautiful young girl who was murdered simply because she was a follower of a different culture, had a different look. From that senseless attack, what else can someone do except try to bring light to what was not an isolated incident and help others. The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was created by her mother as a lasting legacy to her daughter and she has dedicated her life to changing attitudes and to make it a safer place for alternative subcultures.

To mark the 7 year anniversary of Sophie’s death, the Foundation have teamed up with Bad Pollyanna and cult makeup Illamasqua to release the sensational charity single, Invincible Girl. Sophie’s mother, Sylvia says, To say that everyone at The Sophie Lancaster Foundation is extremely excited about this track is an understatement. We all feel that seven years is an appropriate milestone to celebrate the strength and courage Sophie’s death has given us to slowly but surely change the world. The proceeds and awareness from this charity single will help us continue our crucial work”.  Check out the amazing song here:

The beautiful song has an ethereal tone and the emotionally driven lyrics will completely touch your heart as it gives you the strength to stand up and be proud of who you are. Whether you have ever experienced feeling different, an outsider or like you didn’t belong, this is the song that you should listen to, as it becomes that little voice that will tell you, you are the Invincible Girl. You can do anything, stand proud and forge ahead.  The vocals of Olivia Hyde are intensely luscious and powerful and carry so much emotion when she sings. She just enters your soul as you can feel her energy overtake you. Simply magical and well deserving of your attention.

Bad Pollyanna’s ‘Invincible Girl’ is available to purchase on digital download and will be released on collectible, limited-edition 12 inch vinyl – in Sophie’s favorite hue, purple. You can buy the single in CD & Digital Formats at, iTunes, and Amazon MP3.  For more information on the Sophie Lancaster Foundation (Stamp Out Prejudice, Hatred and Intolerance Everywhere) please visit:

Make sure to also check out more of Bad Pollyanna and pick up their album, Monstrous Child. ‘Where vocalist Olivia Hyde takes us the journey of a young woman kidnapped by a grieving scientist who uses her to resurrect his deceased lover in the form of a doll – with disastrous consequences. Having being transformed into a monster, she sets out on a journey to discover the meaning of love, and the sweet yet bitter taste of revenge. As their oxymoronic name suggests, Bad Pollyanna represents a mix of both beauty and darkness. The band explores and celebrates the duality of love, sex and the human condition through music and art. Bad Pollyanna believe you should be whoever you want to be and are proud to support the Sophie Lancaster Foundation in conjunction with makeup brand Illamasqua.’

Lastly, please make sure to share Sophie’s story so we can help make a difference and bring an end to intolerance.
