From the EP Twenty-Three
Steeped in Motown/Memphis soul, “Cry” is a powerful, heart-wrenching ballad consoling a friend who had just suffered an unimaginable tragedy–losing his wife, the mother of his three daughters. Melanie Dewey and Regina McCrary add soaring doo-wop harmonies to Wolfe’s therapeutic exaltation of love.
The Gravel Project
“Big Deep Blue”
From the album Live at Wellspring Studios
The Gravel Project is an all-star band comprised of Boston music veterans whose music blends rock, world music and jazz with power and soul. Carrying the tradition of ’70s blues and psychedelic rock music, The Gravel Project embodies the spirit of Carlos Santana combined with the classic raw energy and moving songwriting of The Allman Brothers Band.
From the EP COMMON MISTAKES
Frankie Torres’ music has a wide range of musical inspirations, many of which are heard in her new project, COMMON MISTAKES. The opening song, “under you,” is a modern take on blues and rock-and-roll that shares grievances from one of Frankie’s past toxic relationships.
From the album Magical Touch
The Wans’ new 11-song LP, Magical Touch, was recorded using vintage recording equipment and recorded live with minimal overdubs. There are hints of ‘90s Britpop influences like Blur and Oasis, but with a modern flair. For fans of Idles, Fontaines D.C., Arctic Monkeys and Queens of the Stone Age
Berblan is a 17-year-old powerhouse from Dallas. Berblan has been playing the piano and ukulele since a very young age. She is a songwriter and performs her craft live.

Viben & The Submersibles
Scuba Funk Records
Viben & The Submersibles bring scuba funk and the language of the sea to humans in hopes of ushering in positivity and growth. It is important to note that they are not a jamband. Anyway, it kind of sounds like an ethereal, bouncy stew of emotion and groove. Not bad.scubafunkrecords.com
“Where Do We Go From Here”
Greystone Music Group
Born in New York City, Redray grew up singing in his father’s church after moving to New Jersey. He’s gone on to open for Lenny Kravitz and Ben Harper, along with joining David Byrne.

Jake Hunsinger & The Rock Bottom Band
From the album Wrapped Around The Axle

Smooth Retsina Glow
Going into its fourth year, Smooth Retsina Glow have emerged as one of the most dynamic and creative acts to emerge from Pennsylvania in some time. “Overcoming” is the band’s first single from their upcoming fourth album, Gemini Reign–due out in summer 2023–and was written by the band’s guitarist, Colin Wolf.
Good Trees River Band
From the album Culture Shock Therapy
