This gallery contains 1 photo.

With a strong country twang and bluesy piano, Russ Still and the Moonshiners sport the well-known sound of classic country music. But when the electric guitar strikes and the heavy punch of drums begin, their sound is undeniably country rock… Continue reading

Leah Capelle is an emerging band from LA, who has a clean and positive pop sound. Despite the band identifying with being alternative rock/pop, judging by their recent release called Joshua, I found the band’s style to be classic ‘modern country’. They remind … Continue reading

Little Johnny – Billy Roberts and the Rough Riders

This gallery contains 1 photo.

You’ve probably seen my reviews of Billy Roberts and the Rough Riders here, here and here. Here’s another – their new song, Little Johnny.

This slow rock song is featured on their third album, Greenbah. A dark and moody tune akin to that of Johnny Cash and The Eagles, I reckon.

Another country princess makes a pop song.

Despite being a high-production-value song and music video, Love Ain’t a Prize left me feeling like I had heard it all before. The country-pop genre tends to be quite monotonous for me.

Lie – Blue Moon Harem

This gallery contains 1 photo.

This classic 1990’s-sounding ballad, Lie, is a melancholy rock anthem with heavy guitar and drums backing strong and gravelly vocals.

With powerful guitar solos and a hard rock bridge, Blue Moon Harem’s song reminds me of string-heavy ’90s bands such as Nickleback and Soundgarden.

The vocalist has a husky voice, that reminds me of Collective Soul’s vocalist Ed Roland in their song The World We Know. Blue Moon Harem’s vocals are emotionally-charged and compliment the band’s rock genre well… Continue reading
