Vocalist Joey Avalos of the pop/rock band Stars Go Dim took some time out of his busy schedule to speak with me about the bands sophomore release, Between Here And Now.

Here is how the conversation went.
Errol Antzis of Psychoteria took some time out of his busy schedule to speak with me about his newest release, I Think I’ll Just Stay Home.

The songs on the record run the gamut from metal to country and everywhere in-between and I think there is something for just about everybody on it. Here is what Antzis had to say.

I recently had a chance to speak with guitarist Robby Rigsbee about his band Zach Williams and The Reformation and their new disc, A Southern Offering.

Not only do Zach Williams and The Reformation pay homage to the masters of the genre, (Lynyrd Skynrd, Molly Hatchet, Joe Cocker), they also add their own sound to the mix, making this an interesting and enjoyable release.
