Check out this sick acoustic guitar assault by Kelly Zullo. It’s the song “When We Get There” from the upcoming January 2015 release.

Here’s a cool and kinda gritty, sassy live acoustic version of the song “B-Side Track” from Patrick Sieben. It opens with some killer bluesy guitar that rolls into some pretty darn clever lyrics. And when he sings it, I believe it!
Here’s a darkly charming video premiere to get your day going. It’s UK songwriter Alex Highton’s “You Don’t Own This Life.” The video depicts a day off in the life of a regular Joe, but in this case our Joe happens to be the Grim Reaper.
