Born to actress Paula Boyd and record producer, Andy Johns, Will Johns has been surrounded by music his whole life, and he carries the torch having played alongside his uncle Eric Clapton, and many other prominent names in the industry with Cloud9, Will Johns Band, and The Music of Cream.
For talented artists such as Gigi Vega, it’s only a matter of time before the world takes notice. After putting in the work since the age of twelve, it seems that for Gigi, the time is now.
If you ask Zay and Jayy, they would tell you they were handpicked by GOD himself for prescribed musical greatness. With tracks such as “Too Slimy,” and “Rainy Clouds,” it’s hard to argue, as they display the full range of the duo, and demonstrate their obvious musical fluidity, and compatibility.
Recently, I caught up with veteran six-stringer Greg Fraser of Brighton Rock. Among other things, we touch on Greg’s origins in music, the formation, and evolution of Brighton Rock, the recording of the band’s debut, the 1980’s scene, Greg’s record work with Storm Force, and a whole lot more.
Darko The Super has managed to take everything we love about 1980s Electro-Hop, 90s Golden Age Hip-Hop, and 2000s Vaporwave, and merge it all into one ultramodern, futuristic, forward-thinking tour de force. Great White Buffalo is a record we are going to be talking about for years to come. With these tracks laid to tape, and now unleashed unto the world, its legacy is soon to be formally cemented.
Jim Harold is a titan of the paranormal podcasting world, as well as a pioneer for podcasting in general. There’s a reason why he is perpetually atop the proverbial podcasting heap.
Evan’s and company have always been a group that leans more toward the artsy side of things, with tracks that tell stories via raw emotion via folktale bloodletting, but with the release of “Art Of The Bleed,” we see the band deepening its roots, and harkening back to some not so obvious influences.
This ethereal track finds the young Daphne Wolfe at perhaps her most vulnerable. I am intrigued to see where this burgeoning artist goes from here. Tune in this coming January to take the journey.
Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with John San Juan of Chicago Indie favorites, The Hushdrops. Among other things, we touch on what he’s been up to during the lockdown, The Hushdrops newest music, the band’s history, and what he’s looking forward to the most once COVID-19 breaks.
Paul Gilbert was an absolute pleasure to talk to. There’s a reason why he’s on the top of many people’s lists for best guitar players out there. Starting his career at a very young age after picking up a guitar at 11 years old, Paul was already giving lessons just years later. Not too long after that Racer X was born, and the rest is history.
