Feature: Suit Up, Soldier cheers with “Picture”

Some of the most fun emails for me to read are the ones involving a premiere or feature interview. And I don't just mean for the chance to get new eyeballs to this growing site—I mean that because a band on the rise specifically thought of us to help us spread the word of what they're doing. When we can get a palpable ...

FIVE ALBUMS WITH COBRA: CHAD KESSLER OF 451 SPIRITS

"Renaissance man" is defined as one that has many talents or areas of knowledge. According to that definition, this fits Chad Kessler to a T. And I 100% agree. Chad indeed is a Renaissance man. You probably have come across his work in the past few years and didn't even know it. First, he is an accomplished musician. ...

FIVE ALBUMS WITH COBRA: RAY COBRA {BLACK ARTIST EDITION}

As with most things I write, getting started is the hardest part. And that is one hundred percent the problem here. My mind is all over the place. And I don't know what to say.

FIVE ALBUMS WITH COBRA: KALI DREAMER

Words by Ray Cobra//Photo by Tim Teller Photography Hip-Hop has never really been a genre that I really dove into. Growing up I listened to it because my sister or my friends in high school would be playing it. It really honestly wasn't until I heard "Bonfire" by Childish Gambino that I was like: ok, I can get into this. ...

FIVE ALBUMS WITH COBRA: MIKE O’LEARY FROM WE ARE THE MOVIES

Words: Ray Cobra//Photograph: Tyler Sheehy If you follow me on social media or Tuned Up for that matter then you should be familiar with the Columbus, OH pop-punk band, We Are the Movies. And if not, shame on you. LOL!!!! Just kidding. This is a band we/I have covered religiously since I first saw them back in 2016 at ...
