The Ram

“It’s a Saturday Night”


OD Soul, Inc.

“It’s a Saturday Night” is a love letter to the music community. For the hard-working entertainers (their band, roadies, sound and light engineers, local venue owners and service staff). They show up their best, regardless of what night of the week it is, and because of them, I’m never alone.

Orchid in the Ivy

Rachael Sage

“Flowers for Free”

From the album The Other Side

MPress Records

Rachael Sage’s ‘60s-influenced “Flowers for Free” is poetic pop-rock at its most adventurous. Beatles-esque wah guitar, with guest guitarists James Mastro (Ian Hunter) and Jack Petruzzelli (Rufus Wainwright) bringing the retro vibes. Produced by Sage with Grammy winner Andy Zulla.





The shambolic yet tunefully glamorous rock-and-roll duo CrashMonkeys broadcast their funky junk from Santa Cruz, Calif. The band’s second EP, LA Trash, is released scheduled for mid-September, and evokes the scuzzy, angsty and arty sounds of Pavement and Sonic Youth, with a bit of Foo-Fighters thrown in.

Jonny Lyons & the Pride


From the album A Little Somethin’ Somethin’


Fueled by a passion for old-time rock-and-roll and soul, Jonny Lyons & the Pride draws off of the electrifying energy from ‘50s sock hops and the soulful sounds of ‘60s and ‘70s R&B and Motown. With show-stopping vocals, tight harmonies, a ripping sax and swinging grooves, JLP leaves nothing on the table!

ReverbNation Winner: LoveSick Radio

“Last Goodbye”



LoveSick Radio (LSR) plays unapologetic, blue-collar rock-and-roll on steroids, blending big vocals, bigger guitars and catchy hooks with punk and blues-infused swagger to create a fresh sound all their own.
