Sam

Today was the first show that I have been able to shoot in over a year and it felt “slamming” even in the heat to be running all around the stage, talking to musicians and standing in front of speakers trying to capture some great angles.  I’m glad to see that the music scene is opening back up.  I am thankful that Slam Band and Sam, a group you may recall from before, asked me...

Welcome to this week’s weekly Spotify playlist, “Music Makes Me”.  Last week I talked about a band out of Maryland who one member started out right here in southwest PA. This week is even closer to my home.  I am spotlighting the band Shiva Skydriver.  Even though they play with others periodically, the band’s primary members are Kelsey James and Ed Skero. They have been playing together since 2008 and have released two full length...

‘Music Makes Me’ – Vol 6. – B Side Spotify Playlist

Hopefully you got an opportunity this past month to check out some local bands. If you are in the SW PA area, maybe you were able to hear someone in my ‘Homegrown’ article last month. If you are younger, you may not understand what I’m referencing with the title of this month’s Spotify playlist ‘B Side’. When artists released a new single, the only media to distribute music was vinyl. Obviously there was no Spotify...

Welcome to week 2 of the Music Makes Me series. I have been really excited to search for new music for you for the weekly Spotify playlist.  So much so that I have also started a YouTube playlist that will contain different videos from the same artists that I feature in my Facebook group each day. The artist that I discovered this week is from our neighboring state of Maryland. All Time Low is a...

Starting in mid March, I created a Facebook group, Music Makes Me, where I share a music video daily. Similarly to my monthly series of the same name, I try to explore music from different genres, locations and points in time. But with the Facebook group, you don’t have to wait a month to hear something new. There is a new song every day for your enjoyment.  For those of you that would rather just...

When Rivers Meet by Rob Blackham (2e)

I listen to a lot of different types of music, but I have to admit that blues is not a genre that is in my playlist. But a couple weeks ago I happened to catch When Rivers Meet (WRM). Husband and wife, Grace and Aaron Bond, have made me wonder what I have been missing all these years. I should not be surprised I like it, as the blues are where a lot of more...

Working Breed

This month’s “Humble Beginnings – Erika June Christina Laing” is about a talented musician who was one of the artists featured on this month’s Spotify playlist article “Music Makes Me”. The song on the playlist, “Turtle Race”, was released in 2019 with the band Working Breed. Not only is she a musician but she also enjoys writing in her spare time. But in the spirit of this series, today’s article will focus on her musical...

‘Music Makes Me’ – Vol. 5 – Homegrown Spotify Playlist

I talked last month about expanding your musical experience and perhaps shattering some genre stereotypes with my ‘Judas Kiss’ article. May has now arrived and with it hopefully some warmer weather and if we’re lucky some outdoor shows and music festivals. In case you only attend national acts at shows I want to just expose the tip of the iceberg with some great SW Pennsylvania bands. I’m also going to limit it even a bit...

‘Music Makes Me’ – Vol. 4 – Easter Eggs Spotify Playlist

March was the month of thinking that there may not be any good music coming out of the USA with my ‘Import Charge’ playlist. Don’t worry though, in July I will be addressing that very question. But for this month I will be smashing a perceived stereotype of a specific genre of music with my ‘Easter Eggs’ Spotify playlist. This month is Easter and so it’s the time of year where if you attend to...
