    Daryle Singletary - There's Still A Little Country Left

    It’s been more than two decades since I first saw Daryle Singletary, singing for tips at The Broken Spoke Saloon in Nashville. In fact, I became aware of this aspiring country star by way of other country stars. We had just gotten back to the Longhorn restaurant from Doug Supernaw's GOLD record party. Toby Keith and Mark...

    Little Horn - Stranger Eons

    He might be twenty years dead, but Kurt Cobain is still working his very fertile loins. Sydney-siders Little Horn are the next band to emerge from the steamy Amazonian marshes somewhat southwest from Seattle. Little Horn come to us bearing a gift: their new EP, Stranger Eons. Swirling in a mystical mist Little Horn envelops with a landslide of...

    Leslie Cours Mather – Hell Hath No Fury

    Leslie Cours Mather is a schooled, classically-trained vocalist. But when she opens her mouth to sing it’s obvious that country music is where her heart is, and she proves it on her new single “Hell Hath No Fury,” a song about the consequences of rejecting a woman. When Mather sings There will be fire that comes from her eyes/her tongue will cut...

    The Definitive Guide To Coordinating A Show

    Creating opportunities to play is not only a smart thing to do in today’s music landscape for any independent artist – it’s a requirement. Your own success and the success of others rely on having good quality opportunities to play and they won’t always come to you. You might just have to create them.

    Rick Monroe – Great Minds Drink Alike

    Rick Monroe has played all over the world and has opened for some of the male heavyweights of the country industry, and it’s easy to see why with one listen to his new single “Great Minds Drink Alike.” He’s got as much in common on this track with Joe Diffie (because he can really sing) or Lynyrd Skynyrd as he does with Luke Bryan or Eric Church, and...

    Tips for Touring Europe as a Musician

    One of the biggest questions I get asked from fellow artists is about playing Europe. I have been traveling in mainly Western Europe and doing music tours there once or twice a year since 2007 (12 tours altogether, anywhere from 2-6 weeks long). It is such a big topic (and I’m still learning), and it is one that’s going to be a bit...

    Denny Strickland – How Far You Wanna Go

    He’s one of the few modern country acts to wear a cowboy hat, but Denny Strickland rides the same train as Randy Houser and Eric Church, and he’s got a hot new single with “How Far You Wanna Go.” Written by hit Nashville songwriters Brian White, Steve Pasch and Joel Shewmake, this song shows that Strickland can give...

Get Your Music Heard By Record Labels

Let’s start with a not-so-bold statement: as a musician, you’ve either sent a demo to a record label, or at least planned to do so at some point in the future.

I imagined wrong. The story of Multi-Love is laid out in full via the album itself. A story of love in the most unconventional way. To put it......
