HURRICANE   https://youtu.be/2EPFkHyAWZ4

Sarah Peacock is a rare talent these days ! Not often do you find a Singer/Songwriter who grabs you with a vocal the first few seconds you hear it, but she does it on HURRICANE. Her voice is crystal clear, articulate, but with a power and warmth of tone that can’t be taught !!! Sarah uses her voice as an instrument like  only true musicians do, and her beautiful tone never falters as she reaches falsetto highs or bassy lows. Incredible.!! She also thinks about her lyrics such as the wonderful lines

“Let your heart be thirsty ground …And I will be your rain”

HURRICANE is beautifully written and produced,a master song if ever there was one.

BEAUTIFUL    https://youtu.be/a1nqafHdueA

Nice coupling of Adorable with Ignorable in the opening verse, featuring beautiful instrumentation for the backing.

The chorus kicks into life with soaring vocals which make this such a good, commercial song.

Another great tune and vocal performance.

THE COOL KIDS   https://youtu.be/-sLaUL6ZW1o

Another great opening line “I am rubber, You are glue” !!! A heartfelt story of being excluded from the “In Crowd” or the Cool Kids. Such a great song of just voice and guitar portraying how cruel life can be sometimes to those seemingly marginalised kids, and yet kids can be cool in other ways outside of the spotlight.Awesome. !! And even cool kids can be bullied in other ways.

With a voice and talent like Sarah Peacock’s, she deserves to be a superstar.May the Man Upstairs look down on her and make things right by granting her wish !!

ENDIANA “ENDIANA”

A classic rock band exploring the histories of love, lust and bloodshed in the heartland.
Formed in ’09, ENDIANA is comprised of Tim Fuller on bass, Tim Gray on the drums and Matthew Aaron on vocals and guitar.

Sounds Like: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Wilco, Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits, Chris Whitley.

Endiana puts a battered — but bold — heart on display throughout new album “After the Fall.” The nine-song collection rocks harder and is more accessible than previous recordings by Matthew Aaron, who sings, “We all have scars from being torn apart.” Aaron remains an expert at exploring haunted corners of love and life, while Tim Gray’s drumming erupts with personality and Scott Manning’s polished guitar work escorts Endiana from a dark alley to Main Street.”
—  dave lindquist, the indianapolis STAR
I’ve featured ENDIANA today because they are something different.I get sent a lot of stuff lately that sounds great until the ubiquitous Screamo sets in. A lot of bands are now starting to become indistinguishable among the pack. Not so ENDIANA !!
Have a listen to the following tracks and you’ll see why !!Ade Fisher
Hints of Petty, Steve Earle, the song has a vintage production feel of great Americana. Impassioned vocals from Aaron blend beautifully with the analogue sounding drums bass and guitar giving an authentic sound and feel.Great stuff !!
VODKA  ( http://www.reverbnation.com/endianamusic/song/16197797-vodka)
A White Stripes style bass n bass drum intro a vocal detailing a fall out with the Lil Woman.
Is the Vodka to blame ??? Real tasty bass and Gretsch sounding guitar kicks in a dirty guitar solo that sits under your finger nails like a whore’s eyeliner.Awesome choon !!!
Laid back ditty , sounds like Steely Dan with sweat !! Great vocals again and some note-worthy guitar tones and lines.
Lots of twists n turns in this one, even some Stones hints in this one.!!
If, like me, you like your music with some alternative flavours,ENDIANA are just what you need.
CHECK THEM OUT NOW !!!

THE WELCH BROTHERS

​“We have been on stage singing together for as long as we can remember.” – Nate Welch

Three brothers, three voices and three songwriters collaborate to create the sound that is giving The Welch Brothers a name in Country music.

Growing up between North Carolina and California, the brothers developed a love for a variety of musical styles, including Country and Rock.

The Welch Brothers will be releasing new songs in the near future… so stay tuned!

Sounds Like: Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry

Featuring Nate,David and Jonny Welch on vocals.

BOOT STOMPIN ROOTS  (http://www.reverbnation.com/thewelchbrothers/song/21185059-boot-stompin-roots)

Super-catchy country rock song featuring great vocals from the Welch boys, great production and instrumentation with a tasty guitar solo.Instant hit !!!!Packing lots of punch to the country formula.

COUNTRY LOVE (http://www.reverbnation.com/thewelchbrothers/song/21185126-country-love)

The title lulls you into a false sense of security, suggesting a slushy song about love of  good old country music.

Instead you get almost country heavy rock. Great sinister start and a mixture of heavy riffing and banjo !!! what a combination.

Another hot guitar solo features on this one, I would love to hear it live, bet it packs an even bigger punch in the flesh !!

WILDFIRE  (http://www.reverbnation.com/thewelchbrothers/song/21185130-wildfire)

As the title suggests, Wildfire is a steaming country rock ditty showcasing beautiful harmonies against rock riffs and hard hitting drums n bass.Ridiculously catchy again, these Welch Boys can sure construct great songs.

If you like you Country with a bit of grit n grease then the Welch Bros are just what you need.
