    Alone Among Thousands

    Alone Among Thousands

    She had bought the tickets four months ago. Every day after, Quinn Davis spent time refining the plans in her head: how much for a beverage and merchandise budget, who she would take with her, and of course, her outfit. She had been listening to the headlining rock band, Ripped Stitches, since she was a teenager and couldn't wait to hear the songs that had captivated her during those stormy and uncertain years. Her love of hard rock in high school was also the inspiration for her career choice as a music therapist. As excited as Quinn was to see her favorite band, she was also super stoked to see the opening local band, Puddle of Blood; their music was explosive and she loved listening to it on her way to work, but she also had a secret crush on their large lead singer, Robbie Kane.

    World's Not Sleeping on Goody Anymore

    World's Not Sleeping on Goody Anymore

    It was a little over a year ago when "Why is the World Sleeping On Goody Grace" was written, from three years of following his music since we first featured him on a vlog (Episode 10), and still not seeing him a household name. He has talent to spare as a songwriter, musician, and singer, and frankly an epic smile, which today is refreshing since the world adopted a "nobody cares, resting bitch face" mentality. You just simply want to see the Canadian born, LA native realize his dreams.

    Blog: Old Dominion - 'Make It Sweet Tour'

    When Bobby Bones asked Old Dominion at the iHeart festival in September what a typical night at one of their shows was like, frontman Matthew Ramsey replied with "It's just five guys, five friends, up on stage having fun"—and he couldn't of described it better.

    Future Thieves Kills It at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall

    Future Thieves Kills It at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall

    The Nashville-based alt-rock trio Future Thieves hit the tiny stage two at the Rockwood Music Hall under horrible red lighting, but the band still came out looking like bright, shiny pennies that make musical wishes come true.

    AJ Croce at City Winery

    AJ Croce at City Winery

    AJ Croce may not get as much publicity as his legend father, Jim, did, but he’s certainly deserving. The singer, songwriter, and pianist extraordinaire took his talents to City Winery in Chicago. It was a chance to not only see his show, but to check out this most unusual Windy City spot.

    Review: Ariana Grande at the O2 Arena, London

    Review: Ariana Grande at the O2 Arena, London

    I’m a massive Ariana Grande latecomer. For a while I was quite a pop culture snob, slating most of the top 40, reality TV, and the crappier talent shows. For context, I just started watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians two weeks ago (from the very beginning, and yes I love it), and when watching Gemma Collins: Diva Forever I have to ask my housemates for context about every 30 seconds.

    Blog: Tori Kelly - 'The Acoustic Sessions' Tour

    Blog: Tori Kelly - 'The Acoustic Sessions' Tour

    In my opinion, Tori Kelly is one of the most underrated artists in the music industry today. With an unmistakable voice that hits you right through the heart, she is one of the most talented artists I have ever seen. In an exclusive London show at the end of July, 890 fans filled the beautiful Islington Assembly Hall on a rainy Tuesday night. A small stage made up of mainly guitars, and an old school sofa placed at the rear, made the perfect setting for "The Acoustic Sessions." Entering the stage first, Mateus Asato, Kelly’s long-time guitarist, who picked up his Suhr and got the crowd going instantly. And then, with no introduction needed, Tori Kelly steps out with her long, blonde curls, iconic as ever, and a pale pink jumpsuit that suits her personality perfectly. Picking up her guitar, she starts the show with “Language,” a song from her new album, Inspired by True Events before slipping straight into “Nobody Love” from her debut album Unbreakable Smile—which instantly makes you realise how packed the hall is, when a sea of voices sing their hearts out alongside her.

    Blog: Lauren Alaina - UK Tour 2019

    Blog: Lauren Alaina - UK Tour 2019

    Many people ask me where my love of Country music comes from. Born and bred in England, with no Country influences in my life, how did I get into it? The answer is Lauren Alaina. Back in 2011, I watched the tenth season of American Idol, purely because Jennifer Lopez joined as a judge. The final of that series included Lauren duetting with Carrie Underwood, and the series winner Scotty McCreery performing with Tim McGraw. Those two duets were the first Country songs I ever downloaded, and the rest, as they say is history.

    HYUKOH at Brudenell Social Club, Leeds—Live Review

    HYUKOH at Brudenell Social Club, Leeds—Live Review

    It’s been a rapid-yet-deserved ascent to the top for the South-Korean Indie band HYUKOH. Since their debut in 2014 as part of a Hongdae music scene famous for underground, grassroots indie rock, the four-piece—Oh Hyuk (Vocal, Guitar), Im Dong-geon (Bass), Lee Inwoo (Drums), Lim Hyunjae (Guitar)—have honed and developed themselves as a band that has the potential to define a generation, and one that provides the youth of today with a voice, as well as with an outlet for their feelings to be understood. The relatability and candidness of the music is something that connects with many; a point proved firmly by the audience at the Brudenell Social Club, Leeds, this past Thursday (July 18).
