SHIM – ‘Crucified’

Shimon Moore, aka SHIM, was the longtime frontman and co-founder of Australia’s Sick Puppies, and as such was the face of a group which refused to be put in a box: their music was an amalgamation of alt-rock, punk, emo, molten metal, throwback grunge, all delivered with a soaring balladry. Now SHIM is going it alone, and his output is no less fiery, and no less stylistically diverse. ‘Crucified’ shows his fans that although he’s left Sick Puppies, he’s still the same SHIM he always was.

Fort Worth Rocker Matt Massey Goes It Alone On Single, ‘Built’

Matt Massey, based in Fort Worth, Texas, has been playing in bands since his mid teens. Now the hard rocking indie powerhouse has gone it alone, this year releasing his debut album, ‘Dear Today’. His latest track, ‘Built’ shines as an example to all musicians that it’s possible to do it all yourself – Massey performs vocals, guitars, bass, and drums, and the entire track, just like the rest of the album, was recorded and produced by Massey, using a Pro Tools rig at home.
