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:

Orissa’s Single “Tara”

Orissa is sharing with our listeners their single “Tara”.  This is one that will appeal to our long play listeners.  I believe Orissa wants “Tara” to be a musical experience for you.  Their style for this single is stadium rock with a nice guitar solo for the listener to get into.  “Tara” is from the band’s upcoming album Resurrection due out this Fall.  Until the album’s release here’s Orissa’s single “Tara” for you to enjoy through SoundCloud – Richard:

Crashing Atlas’ Latest Single “Savages”

Another strong rock outing for Crashing Atlas with their new single “Savages”.  Vocals and nice and clear and the instrumentals are on point with a rocking beat.  We had a spotlight on them previously with the bands single “Ascend” and Crashing Atlas has not disappointed with “Savages”.  If you haven’t picked up their Ascend album yet, get to you digital vendor of choice to get it.  Here’s Crashing Atlas’ “Savages”, through SoundCloud, for you to enjoy while you look for their album – 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:

Ryan Riback’s Lyric Video for “One Last Time”

Ryan Riback has shared his single “One Last Time”, featuring Some Chick.  Now he is sharing the official lyric video for the single.  You get the same fun dance style single, but now we have a fun and a little steamy lyric video to go with it.  Take some time to check out Ryan Riback’s “One Last Time” video featuring Some Chick through his YouTube channnel:

Dani Robert’s Music Video for “Clouds”

Dani Robert is sharing her debut music video with us entitled “Clouds”.  Dani goes to a softer level of voice for this single because of the nature of the song.  It is a slower pop single that tells the story of childhood love developing into an adult relationship and deciding to take a leap and confess that love or being to scared to confess.  This story will resonate with several people, because whether it is a long friendship or new one that moment when an individual wants to confess deeper feelings is a scary moment, in fear of rejection.  But one never knows until it is acted upon.  The instrumentals in this single backup Dani really nicely and don’t over power her voice in the telling of this story.  The music video is really well constructed with shots of her intermixed with the growing couple in the song.  Check out Dain Robert’s music video “Clouds” here through her YouTube channel – Richard:

Been One of Those Weeks

I want to apologize to everyone for having such a slow week.  We have had some fast turn arounds here.  We had the holiday weekend last weekend and when we got back the recording area had water damage that we had to take care of and then make sure everything was good to go.

Then we had a family member on my wife’s side pass away on the holiday weekend, so today we are leaving out for the funeral this weekend.

The next post will be a podcast and then with everything quieting down next Monday we should be back to normal.  Again I apologize for this lack of posts this week.  I’ll see you on the flip side – Richard
