All the information out there on copyrighting can be a bit daunting. How do you know what would be the best path for you in the particular situation you are in as a songwriter? A-J Charron guides you through various scenarios and points out which possible copyright methods may (or may not) work best for you.
Byrd’s latest offering is another must for anyone who loves a great guitar in the midst of fabulously well-written symphonic metal. With Michael Flatters on vocals and Brian Hutchison on piano, drums and bass this trio rides a beautiful storm of powerful, emotional music.
Delp and Goudreau? Ring a bell? It should. Remember a little old seventies band called Boston? Brad Delp was the vocalist and Barry Goudreau the guitarist.
This is an album of easily enjoyable rock, played by Julien Kasper on guitars with accompanying drums, bass and occasional Hammond (a real Hammond) all played by real musicians.
A fine blend of John Mellencamp and Eddie Veder, this album is mainstream, without being too caught up in the moment.
Thanks to the wonder of the Internet, A-J didn’t have to go to Sweden to interview the front man of The Flower Kings, although I’m sure he would have preferred to do so! Here is his interview with Roine Stolt, which covers everything from the band’s early history to his custom Parker Fly guitars.
Rather than reinventing the wheel, Ken Tamplin oils it and makes it turn well. Great songs, played by great musicians. Tamplin also has a very interesting voice, slightly reminiscent of that of Tommy Shaw (Styx).
Kitko’s newest effort shows what one can do with only a guitar and a (pretty) voice. This may be a short album, with only six songs, but she’s sure to get a hold of you with her sometimes smooth, sometimes energetic folk-rock sounds.
Ritual, certainly a band worth knowing, Think Like a Mountain, certainly an album worth owning. This album changes moods often and takes you right along with it.
