The Past, Present, and Future of Dan Bauer (Exclusive Q&A)

I'll come right out and say it: Dan Bauer is far too overlooked. This New Hampshire native made my list of NH artists to watch this year, and his upcoming album promises to be his best work to date. That's not something we should take for granted, especially with the bar set by his 2020 LP The After Life. As an ...

An interview with Tobias and review of the Music Video for his new single “Amaze Me”

“Amaze Me.”  A simple message proclaimed in an open field under a perfect blue sky. These lyrics are sweetly sung like a lullaby. The only musical accompaniment, a guitar and the sounds of nature. The visuals embody the famous words of an ancient king recorded in the 23rd Psalm, “You make me lie down in green ...

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.

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

This should be a simple piece, as it's just Five Albums, but actually, it's more than that. So yeah I'm just going to write and see what comes out. ...
