If you’re in your 20s or 30s and grew up a wrestling fan (like me), you’ve probably heard of Ron Killings. You might know him by a different name — he’s wrestled for a number of years in WWE as two-time (and current) Untied States Champion R-Truth, for starters — but certainly, you’re probably quite familiar with the man and his work, and you have to admit: the dude can go in the ring.Read more

Philly new wave alt rockers TIOGA have released a video for “Young Man Now,” the bright first single from their debut full-length album “Lodestar.”
Philadelphia-based musician C.J. Dunleavy — who is known in regional circles as a music advocate and curator of some pretty cool indie music playlists — also has a knack for songwriting.
Brooklyn, NY-based singer/songwriter Brian Dunne has a New Tattoo.

Taylor Shae had a busy and productive year in 2018. With a full-length album and a couple of singles to her credit, this Longmont, Colorado teenager is making her presence felt throughout her home state and beyond.
When diving into Oceans Over Airplanes, I started out simply wanting to review their latest single, “Colour.” Released in late 2018, “Colour” showcases OOA’s brand of emo/alternative rock in a way that begs you to listen to more. Driven by an outstanding drummer in Joseph Bickham, this Northwest Indiana band delivers a great blend of powerful vocals from bassist Tony Pagorek and a very solid sound from guitarist Mike Anderson.
Before we spring right ahead into 2019 and embrace the new, let’s take one more moment to listen to some of the tracks that defined our 2018.
Katie Cole has built an impressive career since coming to the United States from her native Australia; one which has taken her to iconic venues, legendary studios, and has connected her with her heroes. As a songwriter and touring musician, her success story is built on the tenets of hard work, a reverence for music, and a common reassurance whenever opportunities arise.
“You’ll work it out,” Cole recalls telling herself. “Say yes to the opportunity. Say yes to the right people, and you’ll work it out.”
After releasing their debut EP “Brain Potion” in March, Kutztown, PA’s Scruft got right back to work and their latest effort drops today. “The Curse of the Scruft” is a unique blend of punk and psychedelic rock, and is a nice follow-up to their earlier release.
