‘Music Makes Me’ – Favorite Songs

This week’s Music Makes Me topic came full circle from a similar topic for my very first article from this series last year at this time. My oldest daughter was asking me about my favorite songs.  How do I answer a question like that?  It’s like someone asking a parent who is his or her favorite child. When she first asked, she told me to tell her my top song for each year from 1970...

Sarah Halter Embraces Dark Modern-Metal with “A Clockwork Destiny”

One of the coolest things about local music is getting the chance to hear unique, original music before the artist is known; it’s like a little secret that you get your hands on first. This incredible little secret comes in the form of A Clockwork Destiny, the haunting beautiful, modern-metal, two-track single by Sarah Halter was released on Oct. 29.   Halter first came into the music scene with their solo acoustic EP release titled Little...

‘Music Makes Me’ – Hurdy-Gurdy

Last week’s “Music Makes Me” article was about discovering new artists in the music scene. This week’s Music Makes Me article fits perfectly into the theme of that article. I am going off the mainstream and down a road into the distant past, at least in some ways. Those of you that are music connoisseurs and love to discover new musical delicacies will appreciate today’s journey. This week’s spotlight is on Patty Gurdy, singer and...

‘Music Makes Me’ – Something New

Most weeks I have an artist or two I haven’t heard before that make my Music Makes Me playlist. But this week 6 of the 7 artists I have featured are all ones that I had not listened to before this week. I enjoy listening to old favorites but there is nothing like discovering something new. Some days I feel like the Lewis and Clark of new music, excited to share my discoveries with all...

‘Music Makes Me’ – Writer’s Block

If you have been following my articles over the past year you have seen me talk about a variety of topics. I have let you into my life by sharing stories about how music has played a big part of my life. Recently I wrote about how the music world came together after the tragedies of 9/11. I have also given my opinion on the importance of music in all of our lives. Recently I have...

Skies of Terra Release “Salt of the Earth”

What up fam! It’s the Denman here comin’ atcha with a fresh review. Today, I am reviewing a new song from the band Skies of Terra. If you don’t know them, you definitely need to check them out. They have put out some quirky, funny videos and make you laugh, but let me tell you, my brothers can make some kick-ass music! The new song is called, “Salt of The Earth”, and it is a...

Craig Ferry

Last month’s theme title, ‘Knock Offs’, was all about covers of songs that were better or just as good as the originals.  The subjects of this month’s ‘Pretty in Pink’ Spotify Playlist are all female musicians who made their mark in music history.  In case you don’t know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  I couldn’t think of a better time to recognize a very small number of these talented women. I started creating my...

‘Music Makes Me’ – What If?

Last week’s Music Makes Me was an article remembering the attacks of 9/11 and the music industry’s response to the events of that day. An event that happened to me in my personal life just today promoted my topic for this week’s topic, “What If?” Last Thursday started out like most other days. I woke up before my alarm and walked downstairs to my kitchen and fed my cat, Clara. Anyone that knows my cat...

‘Music Makes Me’ – Never Forget

Twenty years ago today I was in my office in downtown Pittsburgh at work. I remember someone coming over to my desk to tell me what was happening. I recall then thinking “This can’t be real.” but sadly it was all to true. I called home and told my wife of the time to pick my daughter up from school and drive to my parent’s house. At that point I had to clue what the...

‘Music Makes Me’ – Musical Success

In last week’s Music Makes Me I explained all the reasons I felt people needed to support their local open mics. If you didn’t read that article I strongly encourage you to check it out. I was expecting to go back to my normal format this week, but when reading an article, I decided instead to talk about musical success. Everyone has their own standard of what defines their own personal successes in life. And...
