Stevie Bill “Better” Single Review

There’s a term that I use a lot for mid-tempo, danceable tracks where the rhythm physically moves me. Songs where I can’t help but smile as they begin and feel completely willing to go down whatever road they want to take me down. Sway, that’s my term for songs like Stevie Bill’s “Better”, and this song has sway for days.

Little Cities Release Eponymous EP – Reviewed By Josh Taerk

I am a huge fan of Pop Punk music. Some of my fondest memories take place in a now-closed club in Toronto waiting to watch bands like New Found Glory, Motion City Soundtrack, Plain White T’s, and Fall Out Boy do their thing. So, when I heard the opening seconds of Little Cities self-titled EP, it felt like coming back home. Then I found out that this 5-piece alt-pop rock outfit is also from Canada and knew I was already home.

Eivør “Let It Come” Single Review

Eivør is an artist and creative force that is completely and unapologetically herself. While her latest single, “Let It Come”, has definitely been influenced by modern electronic and pop music, I would not be telling the whole story simply labelling her new song as such.

Disney Like A Pro, Quick Service Food At The Magic Kingdom

As I had mentioned in one of my previous blogs, I am a huge Disney Fan! Some of my earliest memories are of me in front of the TV dancing along with the penguins in Mary Poppins and riding on my dad’s back pretending to be Aladdin. As I got a little older, my weekends were full of cartoons like Recess, Pepper Anne, Doug, The Weekenders, etc on Disney’s One Saturday Morning. So, when my family asked if I wanted to join them in the Happiest Place On Earth over my sister’s reading week break, you all know I said yes!

Girl Goin’ For A Grammy, Ashley McBryde And Her Amazing Grammy Nominated song

It’s not every day that you hear about an artist being signed to a major record label at the age of 36 years old, especially in the modern country music landscape. It’s also not every day that you hear that artist is nominated for a Grammy for Best Country Song, with her first major-label release. However, not every artist is Ashley McBryde. Combining the classic country sounds and instrumentation of 90s country music, with honest, heartfelt vocal performances, McBryde is distinguishing herself from the pack and carving out her own place in modern country music.
