Between the Rain’s Single “Mudroom”

Between the Rain is giving our listeners some hard rock to get us driving forward through the day, with their single “Mudroom”.  For me this is some nice old school hard rock with the guitar pushing the song forward and the vocals being sung with some attitude.  Really nice job and fans for this genre will love their single.  Definitely interested in what the band will give us next.  So get some attitude going with Between the Rain’s single “Mudroom” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Josh Taerk’s Single “Learning To Let Go”

Josh Taerk is sharing with our listeners his single “Learning To Let Go”.  Josh has a very natural folk/country sound with his smooth baritone voice.  The song itself I really enjoy the message because sometimes some of us can’t let go of something and to move forward we need to, even though it might be difficult.  The single has a light fresh feel to it that is really enjoyable that you will enjoy listening to.  But don’t take my word for it check out Josh Taerk’s “Learning To Let Go” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Jackie Venson’s Live Music Video for “Flying”

Jackie Venson is sharing with us her infectious single “Flying”.  This is just a fun song that will get your body moving and put a smile on your face.  Very catchy rhythm and you can tell Jackie is having fun with this single.  To me it has a flare of the old disco days where you want to get out on the dance floor and dance to the music.  The music video is a live performance and again you can tell by watching Jackie and the rest of the band that they enjoy this single.  Her EP Transcends will be out September 30, so keep your eyes open on your digital vendor of choice to pick up your copy.  Here’s Jackie Venson’s Live music video for “Flying” – Richard:
