Q&A with Canadian blues rock duo The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer, hearts expressed in sound waves

Posted on January 14, 2022 at 9:00am 0 Comments

"Music is life!! it’s entertainment sure, it’s always religion, meditation, lifeblood. Songs are living breathing entities, artists that are lucky enough and have their antennae out and collect songs get to share them to the world to do with them as they feel freely to do. It can power movements, replace tense conversations, bring people together from opposite socio and political backgrounds to dance it out anonymously in clubs and…

Posted on January 10, 2022 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Q&A with veteran UK bass guitarist, Steve Bingham - Rock n Roll has played a huge part in his life and career

Posted on January 8, 2022 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"What I miss most from the music of the past is the sound of actual live musicians playing together without the aid of modern technology. You can always tell when music has been generated from a computer and no matter how much you try it's impossible to replicate the sound of great musicians."

Steve Bingham: Soul Rhythm Groove

Posted on January 6, 2022 at 7:30pm 0 Comments

"The best music should reflect the culture as well as move it forward in a positive direction. I want the act of sharing our music to "move" people physically and emotionally. If we can touch the audience, get them grooving and give them a positive experience that they remember or has affected or inspired them in some way we will have done our job."

Waterstreet Blues Band: Talkin'…

"The Blues is its own genre. As in Jazz, Rock and Roll, etc. It goes all the way back to the Delta to the present and has developed into the most beautiful musical art form in the world. It's the pallet that is in every genre of music that is out today."

Scott Ellison: Preaching The Blues

Tulsa, Oklahoma native, guitarist and songwriter, Scott…

Posted on December 27, 2021 at 8:30pm 0 Comments

"I miss the legacy, the staying power. Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, Janis Joplin they are timeless! Their talents were so great. I'd like to look on the bright side for the future. Anyone can now be heard with their music being digitally distributed all over the world."
