BLACKTOP MOJO Release Official Lyric Video for “Strike Me”!

Texas Rock band BLACKTOP MOJO has released the official music video for their newest single, “Strike Me.”

“‘Strike Me’ was recorded in our sessions for our self-titled album (released in 2021) at Sound Emporium in Nashville, TN and we had the privilege to add the background singing of the world famous McCrary Sisters on the track, who were an honor to work with. It was our first time bringing in outside background singing.” – MATT JAMES

“The song is a sardonic answer to living through the great many turmoils we’ve all dealt with, especially in the last two years. It’s essentially us observing the world around us and exclaiming, ‘I’m coming, Elizabeth!’ to quote the late, great Redd Foxx.” – BLACKTOP MOJO

Deprive a person of something, and they will surely go out and find it. In an age where Rock N’ Roll has fallen by the wayside, few have heeded the call to preserve its integrity and importance in most of the music we hear today. It’s time to put the question to rest: Rock N’ Roll is here to stay, and Fortune Child will be manning the ship.

Founded in Jacksonville, Florida in 2021, it is no secret that these lovers of good ol’ fashioned Rock were inspired by the likes of Led ZeppelinLynyrd Skynyrd, Alice in ChainsThe Black Crowes and so many more. The four-piece band plans to take the Rock N’ Roll scene by storm, and to remind the people of what truly matters: the music itself.

The band is comprised of Christian Powers on vocals, Buddy Crump on lead guitar, Melanie Jo on drums (previously of Billy Gibbons and the BFGs), and Jon Ward on bass and has quickly garnered significant support from the Southeast US Rock N’ Roll scene opening for national touring acts such as Blacktop Mojo. They will continue to do so as they leave crowds wanting more and more after each show. It’s loud, it’s dirty, and it’s down-right badass. Fortune Child is a force to be reckoned with. For 2022, the band has partnered with legendary rock producer Kevin Elson of JourneyMr. BigEurope, and Lynyrd Skynyrd to produce their full length debut album Close to the Sun, due out in early March. It’s one you won’t want to miss!

Straight out of left field with an electrifying hybrid of hard rock, blues-punk, and 70’s garage rock, Seven Year Witch emerges with enough stage energy to feed a generation starved of real rock n’ roll.

After years of performing under a different name, the group unveiled the Seven Year Witch title in 2018. The band’s reception exploded regionally, as they began to share the stage with the likes of BuckcherryP.O.DTom Keifer’s CinderellaPop EvilAdeltia’s Way, and Crobot. With no big city fluff and proudly independent, Seven Year Witch continues to develop a cult-like following.

The band frequents an east coast and Midwest circuit, all the way from Texas to Canada and anywhere in between.

The group has been featured in South Carolina’s most notable festivals (Fall For GreenvilleSpittoonoMelting Pot Music Fest) as well as a live performance on Cartoon Network’s [adultswim]. Having battled poverty and the scrutiny of rock n’ roll in the bible belt, Seven Year Witch has cut their teeth and made their own luck.

The Story of September’s Monsters:

September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give good human souls a second chance at life, sparking an epic battle between the living and the dead.

Fate, the world’s creator and ruler of Mortem (the land of the dead), has sent it’s reapers after September to stop her. Stitch is one of those reapers. He is also the master of space and time, which he uses to fight her by fragmenting the existing timeline into 6000 separate timelines… each with it’s own unique looking September. September wakes up in each timeline within the Monster Rehab with the monsters looking down at her, angry and hungry for her soul. Fate has taken all of theirs and told them to destroy her.

Will September be able to save the souls of the monsters and repair the timeline before it’s too late?

THE MAN FROM ALPHABET Invade the Scene with Deliciously Graphic Music Video / Cover of THE DICKIES “KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE”

Picking up and re-imagining a piece of iconic punk rock or horror is always a bold move, but THE MAN FROM ALPHABET has served up a delicious scoop of both with their tight cover and hilariously nostalgic music video of legendary American punk rockers THE DICKIES’ 1988 “Killer Klowns from Outer Space”! Originally premiered on BLOODY-DISGUSTING, the music video for “Killer Klowns from Outer Space” was directed and edited by Nina Hirten with production services provided by OH JUST PEACHY STUDIOS.

Featuring uproarious scenes of the band being stalked and murdered by the eponymous antagonists, in methods echoing the B-Horror masterpiece, the antics play out while gleefully watched by a bevy of pajama clad voyeurs. Overall, “Killer Klowns from Outer Space” recalls many an 80s and 90s teen slumber party with such seminal late night horror shows as USA’s Up All Night and MonsterVision, making it a unique Halloween treat for horror hounds and rock fans alike!

“Covering ‘Killer Klowns from Outer Space’ has been a bucket list item of mine for so many years as has the desire to write a song for Halloween season. I’m so thrilled with the end product we created together.” – Dustin Treinen (Bass)

Almost everyone you know has seen a concert that has moved them. Those productions can take over 100+ traveling crew members to set up by the time doors open.

Before and during the show they sweat and hustle to get everything ready. After the show they spend more hours erasing evidence that they were ever there at all. Many of these key players work an average of 20 hour days, then move on to the next city to make it happen all over again.

Many of these crew members, “roadies,” have been doing this as a career for decades. Some of these roadies, while experts in this field, have never had any other job experience. Since the world pandemic, well over a hundred thousand of these people are left with no income and no financial assistance.

There are no concerts or live events for the foreseeable future. At the beginning of 2020, job opportunity ceased to exist and 2021 remains uncertain. Many are unable to claim unemployment as their expert level trade skills are not recognized and they do not qualify. This on-going problem is leaving 100s of roadies without a secure livelihood.

The government has fallen short. Contacting congressmen and women, senators, and governors to raise the issue has been met with no resolution. Their replies are a formal brush-off and roadies are left hitting a dead end.

The goal with this gofundme is to offer some relief to some of the dedicated people in the roadie community. Just like you, they have families, mortgages, car payments, and day care. Commonly these workers lean on their savings between tour cycles, but those funds have run thin or run out. Please donate if you can, every little helps.

IVORY BLUE Releases Official Music Video for “Family Tables”

Kansas City, MO singer / songwriter IVORY BLUE has released the official music video for their newest single, “Family Tables.” Directed by Mikal Shapiro, “Family Tables” showcases the enigmatic chansonnier’s inimitable vocal style and lyrical strength alongside minimal but moving visuals, thus invoking a deeply emotional as well as an addictively repeatable listening experience. “Family Tables” will be available to purchase / stream on September 7, 2021.

“What is it like if people give you the chance to shine? Sometimes we are underestimated and treated unfairly, but the people that give us the chance, will have the opportunity to see how far we can really fly!” – IVORY BLUE

IVORY BLUE lived a nomadic existence until settling in Kansas City MO and becoming part of the local musical community. After winning a nationwide talent contest in 2017 Ivory Blue started having success with some national and international radio play which continues today.

As a multi-instrumentalist, Ivory began refining their performance style, using digital looping pedals to stack harmonies and guitar parts live on stage, giving their solo shows the feel of a full band. In 2011, Ivory settled in Kansas City, MO and quickly began attracting an intense regional following for their strong vocals and incisive, deeply personal lyrics.

By 2013, IVORY BLUE was playing regularly in and around Kansas City and the first EP ‘Ready Get Set’ was released. in 2015. While the EP helped spread the word and got much attention from regional radio and TV stations, a big break would come in 2017.

Ivory entered NeXt2Rock, a nationwide talent search with over 1800 artists/bands who applied to find fresh and promising rock artists.

The top 5 national bands battled it off for the win in Los Angeles CA at the legendary Viper Room, with judges Scott Borchetta (BMLG), John Varvatos (fashion designer), Steve Jones (Sex Pistols Guitarist and Host of “Jonesy’s Jukebox”), Desmond Child (Musician, producer), Chris Lord-Alge (producer), Ivory Blue won over the judges and became the grand prize winner!

Ivory won the contest and a one-year record deal with BMLG who re-released the song “Ready Get Set” from the 2015 EP. Ivory’s 2018 re-release of ‘Ready Get Set’ undauntedly received National and International airplay within weeks.

In February 2020 and after studying the craft of recording and self-producing, this amazing singer-songwriter with soaring vocals, passionate love for everyone struggling through life, released ‘Elite Dreamland’. There are no words to describe the incredible artistry behind this song; a single that hits your heart about understanding how it feels to be misunderstood in a world of people that seem to know what they are doing.

IVORY BLUE produces all the tracks with the exception of Drums and Bass. Ivory is currently working with Lester Estelle (Drummer for Kelly Clarkson), Craig Kew (Bass) KC, Kurt Festge (Mastering | Citizen Kane & Vilent Femmes) NC. and Nick Poortman (LA based Los Angeles based Producer, Engineer, Mixer, and Songwriter) Nick has worked alongside producers including Justin Gray, Gil Norton, Big Tank, and Greg Haver on sessions throughout the USA, UK, Europe, and New Zealand.

On August 18th 2021 Ivory Blue signed a publishing deal with Sound Ballistics Music & Publishing out of Atlanta GA.

Ivory Blue released their music video for “FAMILY TABLES’ on August 21st, 2021 and will release the single on Sept 7th. They are currently finishing the first full length CD/Album Compound Love to be released in 2021 as well as the Red Light EP for 2022.

Who knows what is next for IVORY BLUE, but so far every step has been accounted for to reach that vision that continues to push them to success.

SYDNEY SHERWOOD Teams up with KASON LESTER for “Cycle of Silence”!

New Jersey based Singer / Songwriter SYDNEY SHERWOOD flexes her lyrical prowess with her newest single, “Cycle of Silence,” which sees the gifted chanteuse teamed with fellow American Idol alumni KASON LESTER. A deeply reflective and relatable track, the song comes to life through the pairing of the two distinctive young vocalists on this stunning duet.

“‘Cycle of Silence’ is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever recorded. I had the idea for it back in the winter and wrote it with my talented friends, Joe Makoviecki and Brian Craddock. It’s about two people who are in a constant state of miscommunication, who wish that they could fix things, but aren’t really willing to hear each other out. I brought it to my good friend Kason Lester, who I met on American Idol and asked him to help me bring the duet to life and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! ” – SYDNEY SHERWOOD

“Sydney is rock’s answer to pop’s P!NK or country’s Carrie Underwood, she exudes all the power and confidence and sings with no-nonsense authority, all while remaining firmly situated in heavy alternative rock. Sydney Sherwood cannot be merely compared to female singers of her generation and writes and performs with a conviction that fans of 3 Doors Down or Daughtry would instantly recognize.” – Joe Makoviecki (Singer, songwriter of Jackson Pines)

Sydney Sherwood is an 18-year-old singer/songwriter from New Jersey. Sydney began singing and playing guitar as a way to express her emotions after her brother was diagnosed with cancer.

Since her brother’s diagnosis, being a childhood cancer advocate has become a big part of Sydney’s life. She has performed and spoken at many childhood cancer events over the past twelve years and continues to be a voice for all children with cancer, as well as their siblings.

Sydney began writing her own music when she was 13, and on March 3, 2019, she released her first EP, Beauty from Ashes. Her release show was held at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey. In 2019, Sydney also received a golden ticket to Hollywood from American Idol celebrity judges Katy PerryLuke Bryan, and Lionel Richie.

Over the course of the pandemic, Sydney has been writing and recording her new album, Headspace, which will be released February 27, 2021.

Sydney’s goal is to touch the lives of others through the music that she writes, as she takes inspiration directly from her life experiences.

LOVE THE HATE New Single, “Solid Ground,” Out NOW!

Mobile, AL based Heavy Rockers LOVE THE HATE has released their brutal new single, “Solid Ground.” With a dark, modern music video directed and filmed by Thomas Crane of KillDevil Films (SalivaTodd La Torre [Queensryche], Eve to Adam), “Solid Ground” has quickly dominated local and international radio, bringing the quintet’s unique brand of dark, heavy riffs and infectious melodies to an audience starved for honest rock music.

The band’s 6/22/2021 released music video for “Solid Ground” was filmed in an historic Mobile mansion known as the “Outlaw Mansion,” which inexplicably burned down shortly after. Often referred to as “Alabama’s Most Haunted House,” the sprawling property was once an opulent mansion–one of Alabama’s finest examples of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture–owned by the Outlaw family since 1925. Former Mobile Mayor Arthur Outlaw lived there until the mid-1980s.

“It played a big role in making the video so cool because it has all of the historical aspects of the house — the handcraftmanship on the house alone is remarkable. My dad was a frame carpenter, so I noticed everything like that. It was amazing for me to stand at the staircase of the house when we were shooting the video and be surrounded by that.” – Frank Killian – Love The Hate.

THE LA MAYBE Release Official Lyric Video for “Peace of Mind”!

Profile Pic

Carolinas based heavy rock band THE LA MAYBE–fronted by lead singer Alvi Robinson, made famous when he was nearly selected to front the legendary band AC/DC in 2016–have released the official lyric video for their uplifting, anthemic new single, “Peace of Mind.” Designed by Dallas, the band chose a lyric video for “Peace of Mind” to focus on the lyrics and message of the song.

‘Peace of Mind’ is a song about struggling with addiction. Battling your inner demons can be hard, but we all just want to come out the other side with a little peace of mind. More than anything, this song is a message of hope. We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!” – DALLAS DWIGHT

Player

Advance Praise for Dirty Damn Tricks:

“Dirty Damn Tricks rules from beginning to end, so be sure to listen straight through so you don’t miss crucial deep cuts like “Fake” and “Up Next To You.” The L.A. Maybe could be the most important band in the USA right now just because they get rock and roll so right. The band’s grasp on what needs to happen to keep rock music moving forward while keeping its spirit alive is intuitive and on target. You have GOT to hear this record.” – Rock & Blues Muse

“The quality of the song writing on offer here is impressive for a new band with a debut album, and there really isn’t a weak track on “Dirty Damn Tricks”. “Oh Sugar” is a song that has the lot, dripping in swagger it is the perfect summer rock song. “Piece of Mind” is bluesier and slower yet not quite a ballad, “Sweet” comes complete with a vocal that could cut through most things whilst “Up Next To You” rounds it all off in style.” – Get Ready to Rock

“A screaming voice, powerful riffs, bold lyrics – that’s classic rock. If you loved the long haired guys of the 1970’s and 1980’s, you should definitely dare a listen to Dirty Damn Tricks. The album comes with a high potential for you that you will enjoy these tunes. I definitely had a lot of fun!” – Flyctory

“To sum up, if you like the aforementioned AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses or even Van Halen, you will love this album. It perfectly showcases the incredible versatility of these fine musicians as they draw on a number of musical styles whilst retaining their own definitive sound. I have no doubt listening to this that these guys will put on an incredible live show and I’ll certainly be first in line for a ticket!” – Rockasaurus

“I wrote ‘Let Me Down’ with one of my favorite songwriters a few years ago after getting over someone I had feelings for for some time. I like to see the good in people and deep down I knew this person had good in them, but I looked at what that person could’ve been instead of the person that was standing right before me. I gave this person every chance to prove themselves and time and time again I was let down. I was so blinded by this false sense of reality that when this person let me down it felt shocking. I think a lot of people can relate to the fact that when you care for someone, you tend to overlook the negative things they do because you’re consumed with feelings, but now I realize it’s important to have one foot in reality at all times. Writing this song was one of my biggest moments of clarity to see that I deserved more. While the song is definitely not in favor of the guy, his actions opened my eyes to see what I don’t want and what I won’t tolerate. Had I never gone through this experience, I would’ve never known to look for those red flags in the future and I guess I have him to thank for this killer song.” – SYDNEY SHERWOOD

“’Screamworks’ is a song about people who make you want to SCREAM. People who would rather manipulate you to serve their own end even when you have a common goal in mind. The song is an expression of the frustration found in dealing with someone who has their head shoved so far up their own….you know. In a lot of ways its hugely cathartic for us and allows us to finally talk about past experiences bottled up for far too long.” – Glen Bridden – (lead Singer) 2 Shadows

Player

“I wrote and recorded this song specifically for Cody Rhodes. It was originally intended to be the Double or Nothing, Cody vs Dustin, promo, but Cody preferred “Shoes”. At the time, AEW was just beginning and I wanted to write something that I thought captured Cody’s trailblazer like spirit. In hindsight, the song was better suited for the video package which included, Steve-O, Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin. Three very original performers who have paved their own way into history. Something I admire and am attempting to do myself.” – IAN ABEL

The song is written from the point of view of our main character in the graphic novel, September, as she observes the world of the living in which she consistently takes souls from. The track urges the listener to take control of their own thoughts about the world around them and make their own decisions instead of relying on choices skewed heavily by the propaganda that one is constantly bombarded with. ‘Wake the Dead’ encourages the listener to wake from their slumber and make their mark on the world today by raising their conscious thought as well as their voice.” – SEPTEMBER MOURNING

Player

“Written during a cross country move from Kentucky to California, this song delves into the psy-che of someone who has to leave their previous life behind for a new and unknown future.

While the lyrics deal with the unstable handling of it through careless physical relation-ships and possible alcoholism; the music captures more of that excited/nervous/scared energy. That daunting energy of someone who’s packed up everything they own in a 10 x 10 u-haul and headed to a place where they know literally no one.

The two meet on common ground at the chorus. The unifying cry of, ‘It’s All For Love!’ A love for/of what exactly? I mean… I know, but I’d be more interested in hearing what you think.” – IAN ABEL

SharoneFade Cover 3000x3000

Introducing an alternative spiritual element to the Halloween season, Dark Rock artist SHARONE has released the visually compelling official music video for her empyreal new single, “Fade Away.” Directed by Kyle Lamar at Digital Myle, “Fade Away” is the second track off of the enigmatic artist’s upcoming LP, Morbid Illusion, due out 5/28/2021 via Devil Inside Records.

Player

“Fade Away” is my empowerment anthem. It’s a reminder to myself and every other artist to never give up on our passion or vision. We doubt ourselves as artists all the time. I’ve been given every reason to quit music, but it flows through my veins, so you’ll never see me drown.

The music video shows a wounded warrior facing death after being tormented for a long time by an evil crow. She feels helpless and weak. Halfway through the video, a dark angel who has been watching over her, comes and leaves her a sword to reach for, along with a spell of strength. Towards the end of the video, the wounded warrior reaches for the sword, and is finally able to get back up and fight her battle.” – SHARONE

Sharone erupted onto the Denver music scene as a solo artist in 2014 playing local DIY venues; since then she has gone on to play venues such as Marquis TheaterBluebird Theater, and Gothic Theater, playing festivals, and opening for bands such as One-Eyed-DollThe Birthday MassacreFuelSaving AbelDavey SuicideTantricHell’s BellesStitched Up Heart, and Puddle Of Mudd. The atmospheric and melodramatic music of Evanescence and the psychedelic blues of Black Sabbath inspired Sharone to start performing her music live with a full rock band backing her. Despite sustaining a dark and melancholy tone on recordings, the gothic artist’s live shows are nothing short of energetic, full of heavy piano riffs, pulsing rhythms, and enthralling theatrics. From emerging from a coffin to jumping off of monitors and captivating contortions, Sharone captures the interest of each audience member through her piercing stage chemistry with her live musicians, and her ever-growing theatrics. In the spring of 2017, the singer left her mark on the Denver music scene with the release of her first rock album ‘Storm’. Following the release, dove deeper into her writing, and came back stronger than ever with the reincarnation of her dark sound: ‘Enchiridion of Nightmares’ (2018).

“Like a series of dark fairy tales, Enchiridion of Nightmares the new album from dark [rocker] Sharone, captivates, seduces, and haunts. Each of its notes, let alone songs, comes with a shadow to [her] beauty, melancholy to [her] light, and intimacy to [her] grandeur with it all colluding in an adventure which just steals the imagination from everyday reality. There is a rich cinematic and theatre-esque feel to Enchiridion of Nightmares which equally adds to its captivation; indeed its songs entwine an influence of horror movies, vintage and modern, into their personal nightmares. With just as richly layered and dramatic sounds to its exploration, the album is a persistent unveiling of new twists and shadows listen by listen. On our first meeting intrigue soaked the pleasure, through a couple more captivation, each subsequent listen leading to the inescapable bewitchment these words spring from.” –The Ringmaster Review

unnamed 1

Sharone followed up the release with three exhilarating summer and fall tours, reaching audiences across the western, central, and eastern United States, and spent the remainder of 2019 recording her third studio album ‘Reflection’, which was released December 7th, 2019.

“[Sharone] showed that she was adept at harnessing the chaos on her previous couple of albums and she’s really turning the gothic-art-pop-rock up on her latest long-player. It’s packed with dark fairytales and swooping riffs as well as more theatrical invention that you’d find at the Royal Shakespeare Company.” – The Crack Magazine

In summary absolute female power, which reminds of Evanescence and Tarja Turunen. This talented singer makes you curious about her live performances!” – Stormbringer.at

Sharone really pushes out the emotions and passion she has for music with this album. It is full of fantastic piano chords and guitar riffs that really show off her band’s talent as a whole. I am excited to see what she releases in the future and will keep an eye out for it. In the Spring of 2020, Sharone signed with Devil Inside Records, and began working on her fourth studio album. The first single “Can We Pretend” was released July 24th, and has been the young rocker’s most successful release to date.

This unique rock artist is destined for success in the metal and goth rock realm. Look out for more new music from Sharone coming very soon.

Their self-titled debut album hit the indie charts in June 2018 and catapulted them to the number one position for Rock on Reverbnation in Athens where they held for over a year.

Not long after the release of their debut ep, they began work on their 2nd album. The first release was “The Conflict Within”. It was featured in Georgia Music Spotlight as being “energetic, straight ahead hard rock”. Full of monolithic mid-tempo hard rock riffs, anthemic (Slash-esque) guitar solos, and gritty, commanding vocals with the ideal level of attitude and energy for the genre. As well as getting a stellar review of their most recent single, “The Conflict Within” in Rawckus Magazine.

In July-August 2018, the band opened for legendary Cinderella frontman, Tom Keifer to a sold out crowd at Innovation Amphitheater to an over-whelmingly positive response and left with the crowd on their feet. They have also shared the stage with several national acts, including REHABHallowpoint (Missouri) and Demon In Me (Cali) and Lullwater. They are currently tracking their 2nd album with the incredible Led Belly Studios in Dawsonville, GA with engineer, Matt Washburn. Ledbelly is responsible for several releases from national acts MastadonArtemis PyledriverLegion X and many more. The album will be produced ,mixed and mastered by Justin Davis of American Music out of Seattle, Washington. Justin is known for his amazing work with Lullwater’s most recent album.

On October 2nd of 2020 the band released “War Cry”, a song about overcoming anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts during difficult times. It will be released independently. Early listening by blogs and radio stations have already given it stellar reviews.

As glass is fragile and the helix can be said to represent dna – life, Glass Helix takes its cues from the fact that life is fragile, and we shouldn’t waste our precious time while we have it.

Glass Helix’s music hits hard while keeping a beautiful sense of melody and incorporating riffs that sort of stick in your head and you catch yourself humming the next day.
