Nothing evokes passion and emotion like music, especially music that has been a part of the soundtrack of our lives. These songs that we love from our favorite artists are like snapshots in our family photo album. Each one provides clues to our history, our tragedies, our triumphs and our loves. Music bonds us as a community. And when one of the contributors to our life’s soundtrack dies, we lose a piece of ourselves, a friend who has been “through it all” with us. The heartbreak is shared and the feeling of our own mortality is real. This past year as we have experienced the loss of many in our musical family, I feel strengthened by our shared grief and expression of gratitude. I ask to find comfort together in the music they created for us and remember those times in our lives punctuated in song.

Here’s to a brand new year, brand new music and brand new memories.

No Comments 01 January 2017

Hard Love, Tim Showalter’s latest release as Strand of Oaks, is a record that explores the balancing act between overindulgence and accountability. Recounting Showalter’s decadent tour experiences, his struggling marriage, and the near death of his younger brother, the album emanates an unabashed, raw, and manic energy that embodies both the songs and the songwriter behind them. “For me,” Showalter says “there are always two forces at work: the side that’s constantly on the hunt for the perfect song, and the side that’s naked in the desert screaming at the moon. It’s about finding a place where neither side is compromised, only elevated.” Download “Radio Kids” off Hard Love and learn more about Strand Of Oaks at their Official Website, “Like” them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

California based Rhythm and Blues guitarist Nick Waterhouse got his start when his single “Some Place” was given to DJ Jonathan Toubin. Toubin was blown away with Waterhouse’s howling falsetto and played the song all over the United States. People became so enamored with the track, they paid $300 dollars on Ebay to get their hands on a copy. Fastforward to 2016, Waterhouse has released three albums and toured the world. His third album, Never Twice was released this past September. Download “It’s Time” from Never Twice and learn more about Nick Waterhouse at his Official Website, “Like” him on Facebook and follow him on Twitter.
