  • Well, hell it’s been a damned rocky road to get to 2014. I feel like last year I was trucking along full speed and killing it with unbreakable momentum. The fact that I haven’t posted in over a month proves that I hit a roadblock. I apologize for ducking out for an unplanned hiatus. Hey, I’m only one guy–I don’t have a staff and only occasionally do I have other contributors, mostly this is a one man show. A show I intend to get back on the road. The main problem for me began in October when there was a...

  • As some of you may or may not know, I became freed of my day job on May 1st–the news of which I greeted with, at worst, ambivalence and at best a fair amount of happiness. Honestly, I’ve been missing out on a lot of killer shows during the week and the opportunity to spend a few weeks checking out what’s happening between Sunday and Friday, kind of thrilled me. This time has not gone wasted, though, I’ve not spent every night at a show–I’ve certainly tried to make the most of it. I would like to say that first...

  • Brandon Decker relocated to Sedona over four years ago to find room for his thoughts, his music and his songwriting. In that time he has toured relentlessly with his ensemble band decker. and issued three releases on his on his own Mescal Porch Records. The most recent release is a seven song EP called Broken Bells, Broken Bones and as with the previous releases of Long Days and Long As The Night it is once again brilliant soul searching music that explores the conflicts of his own mind and heart, between the difference of reality and dreams in a tight...

  • One of  my  favorite new  groups of  2012 that have “hit the ground  the running” and  emerged  as a band  I try to catch every time they play is  PALMS. There are other groups that debuted this year that I knew couldn’t disappoint, like supergroup Zero Zero (who play with PALMS quite often!), but PALMS was an unexpected surprise at how great they were from the onset and how quickly they garnered my favor. Today, as a special Christmas present for all their fans, PALMS has released their new single “Dirty Little Knees” and today only, you can download it...
