Here’s an intense acoustic version of The Relapse Symphony’s “Savage Eyes” from the band’s latest album Shadows, due out December 16. Driving guitars and growly vocals deliver the painful message. It really works in this stripped down and raw rendition.
Here’s a cool acoustic piece by Brian Gore called “Stone Haulers.” The song and performance are fabulously nuanced, just like a fine wine! In fact, it’s the final piece featured in the Wine Country Tales CD, DVD & Booklet blending guitar songs by Brian Gore and animated video stories by Bill Russell.
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. Whether he’s purchasing a new scythe, munching on fish and chips or practicing ping pong — the Reaper’s life doesn’t appear much different from our own.
Aviva and Stefan are "normal college kids" and that's ok with them. They find inspiration in the simple day-to-day activities of life and feel that they're music would speak to like-minded potential fans.
Here are a couple of cool acoustic videos from TEAM*, as they explore a more naked version of these two tunes. “Say My Name” and “I’m Just Like You (When You Turn Out The Lights)” both appear on the band’s new album, Good Morning Bad Day. Here are their exclusive acoustic takes on these songs.
Mark your calendar for some fresh acoustic musical delights releasing October 21. I'm talking about The Stray Birds new release Best Medicine out on Yep Roc Records. Chock full of story-filled lyrics and smart harmonies, interwoven with wonderfully separated string lines and strums, this album offers some heartfelt creativity.
Here’s a fun slappin’, tappin’ acoustic performance by 15-year-old Sarah Command. Here she plays “Tight Trite Night” originally by Don Ross. Hailing from Alberta, Canada, Ms. Command is one half of the duo The Command Sisters. We were introduced to them earlier this year with some fancy finger work from Command on a Satriani and Andy McKee song. Now she tackles this finger-twister.
Here’s a brand new video from Charlottesville, VA roots-folk band The Currys. The track, “Wrecking Ball,” shines with the group’s tightly knit family harmonies, along with some slick guitar and mandolin playing. But apart from their playing and singing talents, these guys can write a song too –– “Wrecking Ball” is bound to stick in your head after one listen.
