    Song Review: Brad Paisley – “River Bank”

    By Todd Sterling on Tuesday, April 15, 2014

    One of the most consistent hit makers in Nashville, Brad Paisley rarely disappoints when he releases new music. With a stack of gold and platinum albums to his name, including multi-platinum platters Mud On The Tires and Time Well Wasted, Paisley is one of the few traditionalists (alongside George Strait and Alan Jackson) still enjoying mainstream success today. 2013′s Wheelhouse

    Twelve years after officially going their separate ways, Courtney Love revealed earlier this month that the most successful line-up of Hole recently spent time rehearsing together. It remains to be seen whether guitarist Eric Erlandson, bassist Melissa Auf der Maur and drummer Patty Schemel have reunited with the eternal provocateur for a full-blown reunion or simply a brief trip down memory

    Recently re-released as a 40th Anniversary Deluxe edition, with a second disc of cover versions by artists as varied as acoustic troubadour Ed Sheeran, nu-soul man Miguel and emo-rock veterans Fall Out Boy, Elton John’s 1973 seventh studio effort Goodbye Yellow Brick Road undeniably signalled the arrival of the Rocket Man as a fully-fledged sequin-suited entertainer.

    Congratulations To Longtime Friend Of ReDigi Peter Gabriel On Rock Hall Induction

    By Todd Sterling on Thursday, April 10, 2014

    With all of the drama surrounding the 2014 Rock And Roll Hall of Fame induction, it’s easy to forget there are other artists being inducted this year besides cartoon rockers KISS (who have drawn the most media attention thus far). Longtime friend of ReDigi Peter Gabriel is one such artist who seems to be getting lost in the back-and-forth drama between former

    Album Review: Hank Williams III – Ramblin’ Man

    By Todd Sterling on Wednesday, April 9, 2014

    Hank Williams Sr. died on New Years day in 1953, but the singer lives on in his Grandson, Hank III. Known as much for his cow-punk and heavy metal stylings as he is for his honky tonk leanings, Hank III is a vocal match for his legendary grandaddy. When III sings a Sr. song, the tone and phrasing is eerily

    Album Review: The Pretty Reckless – Going To Hell

    By Jon O'Brien on Tuesday, April 8, 2014

    After rising to fame as the cute sidekick in Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and insecure It Girl Jenny Humphrey in Gossip Girl, actress Taylor Momsen was initially viewed with scepticism when she reinvented herself as the raccoon-eyed frontwoman of The Pretty Reckless. After the band’s brash 2010 debut Light Me Up showed that she was the most authentic Hollywood star-turned-rock

    Album Review: Skrillex – Recess

    By Amanda Crabtree on Monday, April 7, 2014

    Skrillex was well established in the EDM industry by his early twenties — after all, the producer/DJ singlehandedly introduced dubstep to the mainstream electronic crowd. By blending aggressive synthetic sounds typical of dubstep with more house-wide preferred drops and lyrics, he appealed to a much broader crowd than any dubstep artist had before. Skrillex largely produced singles his first several years

    Artist Spotlight: Eels

    By Jon O'Brien on Friday, April 4, 2014

    The brainchild of maverick singer-songwriter Mark Oliver Everett, Eels emerged from the mid-’90s post-grunge boom with a compelling blend of bittersweet alt-rock and deeply personal and often despairing themes of love and loss. The son of physicist Hugh Everett III, the man who would become known simply as E had released three solo albums (Bad Dude In Love, A Man Called E, Broken Toy

    Throwback: Kenny Chesney – No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems

    By Todd Sterling on Thursday, April 3, 2014

    Kenny Chesney has a passion for his music and his fans that is unequaled in the country music world. The only other comparable artist right now would have to be Jason Aldean. Both artists rock hard and have the ability to sell out stadiums, but it’s Chesney who has the bigger and more loyal fan base. The island-loving singer, who

    By Amanda Crabtree on Wednesday, April 2, 2014

    Single-handedly spearheading the progressive trance movement, Armin van Buuren will forever have his stamp on the world of EDM. A lifelong dedication to electronic music began for the Dutch DJ as a teenager, when he started writing his own computer programs so he could produce music. Basic level mixes for his friends evolved into more complex sounds as he experimented

    No stranger to duetting with female artists, superstar Prince has previously shared the mic with everyone from ’80s pop starlet Sheena Easton (“U Got The Look”) to nu-soul diva Angie Stone (“U Make My Sun Shine”).

    By Todd Sterling on Friday, March 28, 2014

    Anyone who says traditional country music is dead hasn’t heard the latest album from Don Williams. The legendary artist’s new disc is country to the bone. The man they call the “Gentle Giant” has never sounded as good as he does on the ten song Reflections. At the age of 74, Williams has a musical and vocal style that is

    Check the credits of any recent female pop superstar album and you’re more than likely to find Sia Furler’s name on the credits. In the last six months alone, the Australian has contributed to Beyonce’s self-titled effort (“Pretty Hurts”), Katy Perry’s Prism (“Double Rainbow”) and Britney Spears’ Britney Jean (“Perfume”). But of course, the 38-year-old had already established herself as
