Gerald Cerda (Artist Review)

Gerald Cerda (Artist Review)

LA-based pop/funk artist Gerald Cerda describes his sound as pop music with a pop rock influence. This was borne out of a love of creating mix tapes as a kid using an old stereo given to him by his dad. Aside from that, Cerda has always found peace in music for as long as he can remember.   A lot of his subsequent musical influences […]

Pretty Citizens (Artist Review)

Pretty Citizens (Artist Review)

Once upon a time, a bunch of lovely lads from Nottingham decided to start a band called Pretty Citizens. The quartet formed when James Addy (vocals/rhythm guitar) and Luke Watson (lead guitar) met at university and discovered they shared a passion for 60s rock and roll, Alan Partridge and turtleneck sweaters; they also just so happened to share a home in the idyllic market town […]

Puppet Rebellion (Artist Review)

Puppet Rebellion (Artist Review)

If you’re after choppy riffs, heartfelt lyrics and a powerful live indie rock show,  look no further than Manchester quintet Puppet Rebellion.

Tracey Lloyd (Artist Review)

Tracey Lloyd (Artist Review)

Nashville-based indie musician, Tracey Lloyd has always been a musician but didn’t take it seriously as a career until 2003. It was a time when her family was once again hurt by a sexual predator and Lloyd decided to do something about it – if we continue to let predators hurt our children, we will perpetuate a society that includes and condones them. Lloyd knew […]

Oh, Weatherly (Artist Review)

Oh, Weatherly (Artist Review)

Oh, Weatherly is the end result of the raw and natural passion that the quintet all shares. They are a Dallas-based alternative rock band that formed back in 2014. The story goes that Blake Roses (vocals) and Andrew Cope (former drummer) released a demo in an attempt to find members. Roses sent the demo to Dallas Martinez (lead guitar), who flew back to Texas from […]

See The Rise

See The Rise

Minnesota natives See The Rise are self-described as ‘Dirty Northern Hardcore’. The quintet – Josh Meyers (vocals), Brian Elliott (vocals/guitar), Jason Law (guitar), Andy Davis (bass) and Cody Klaus (drums) – formed back in 2011 when Meyers had the idea of spreading authentic hope to a lost and hurting generation. It’s an unfortunate common theme amongst hardcore bands, to be spreading negative messages of hopelessness […]

Erica Bramham (Artist Review)

Erica Bramham (Artist Review)

Melbourne-based Erica Bramham is a lyric-driven singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, who skirts the boundaries of jazz, folk pop and the avant-garde. When she was younger however, Bramham was always more interested in writing fiction than music. It was upon hearing Bic Runga that her heart would turn towards music – an incredible songwriter that Bramham wanted to be like. This led her to learn guitar and […]
