“A Record Review” – Couches Slackin’ Since The 80s

Photo on 10-5-14 at 10.39 PM

I believe in live performance. I love seeing bands in person, up front and center stage to be able to get a sense of what people can do, and frankly I’m looking for bands that can WOW me into wanting to listen to their  recordings… this is always how I’ve traditionally enjoyed music. When I was […]

The Record Company_Anna Larina 5

A last minute addition to the bill, San Francisco’s Branches started off the show with a living room-style set on the Independent’s big stage. They were impressive performing as a three-piece, but also made me wish to hear them full-band one of these days. I may not have much to say, but rest assured it’s […]

BEFORE THE BRAVE NW TOUR

Before_The_Brave_Tour

I get bored super easy! So when I saw that Before The Brave was finally going on tour I told them “I want in!”

I’m not going to Lie … I may have begged a bit. It’s possible I may have been telling Jason Perry Stevens for months, “the second you go on tour … I want in!” I told him I would be his back up dancer, pr pro, merch babe, pack mule, anything the band needed.

It’s every young aspiring musicians dream to get signed to a major label and make records for the rest of their life–at least it used to be. However most will never get there. People give up hope, they get beaten down by the music business, their songs or haircut don’t fit the times, no one […]

Where do songs come from?

Tam's Camera 006

This blog is about the inspiration for songs. Where do songs come from? What inspires a song?

Whenever I’m asked the question, “Where do your songs come from?” the first thing I always think of is […]
