Folk-Rock Review: Lindsey Saunders

Release Date: October 5, 2012
Label: Indie

Lindsey Saunders made a real impact on the 2013 national indie music scene after releasing her debut EP Nothing Normalin October 2012 at the age of 18. Nearly two years later the EP still resonates with incredible energy and validity. When you look at that engaging smile and those big blue eyes, Saunders looks like the girl next door but trust me, she is much more than that.

After listening to this amazing 5 song EP I can assure you there is Nothing Normal about this young lady. Her talent for singing a tune and spinning a yarn is off the charts good!

Saunders’ acoustic guitar playing is very good and her voice is strong enough to rise above all the music to make it the perfect complement to all the sounds. Essentially what her vocals provide is another instrument to the mix. 
One listen to “Make or Break Us” or a glimpse at the video of the track provided will put everything I have said into proper focus. What a fantastic track! Her voice, the guitar playing and the words pack a knockout punch. One line goes “When did you realize I would be more than you thought I would be?” as she sings to her former lover as he walks off with the new girlfriend. “We're Never Through” sounds like a sequel to that track with the words and music once again making a huge statement.

This is a young lady on a mission with enough fire in her eyes and belly to push any obstacle out of her way to get where she wants to go. There is more fire in her soul than every red hair follicle on her head. I am so impressed with the command she has of her voice and instrument. It blows me away to know she is not a star yet. This EP music puts the multi-million selling crap on the radio to shame.

Lindsey Saunders you have got it going on and people in the music biz better wake up and smell the coffee or you will be known as the big fish that got away. 

4/5 Stars

British Post-Punk Veterans 1919 Return With A Brand New Masterpiece Of Darkly Melodic Goth Rock, FUTURECIDE!

Los Angeles, CA - Like the mythic phoenix rising from the ashes, British post-punk band 1919 have gone through Hell and back over the course of their harrowing career, but they keep returning stronger than ever! Founded in 1980, the band released its debut album Machine in 1983 and one EP a year later before calling it quits. However, the band reformed in 2014 to great acclaim, performing numerous tours and at festivals across Europe. Then, tragedy struck as the band’s founding guitarist Mark Tighe was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and succumbed to the disease in January 2017. Tighe insisted that the band should carry on without him, which they have done in finest form with their newest effort Futurecide. The album, which will be officially released on April 12 via Cleopatra Records, features brand new compositions and includes special guest performances by Tighe as well as former member Steve Madden, who also passed away this year. The first single, “Anxiety,” was released at the en…

Concert Review: Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY

Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY December 13, 2018

With winter upon us in the great Northeast, it was just another night. We never have a reason to stay in because of the weather, we just go. It so happened that it was a nice evening for a drive to a Ghost concert.We secured our tickets months ago and have been anticipating this night for months on end.
Last July I attended a “bucket list” concert, the great Iron Maiden was coming to Mansfield, MA. Opening for them was Ghost. This was a turn of a friendly card for the band, a great way to get worldwide exposure otherwise not afforded by a lesser band. They were already on the rise and the lead singer Papa Emeritus had a helluva a band (no pun intended there). At that time my prediction was that when the new year began Ghost would be headlining their own shows. So, then it happened, here we are tonight watching this incredible metal band headlining their own show, with no opener may I add.
For those of you unf…

Experience Hendrix Tour 2019 Concert Review

The Experience Hendrix Tour 2019 Concert The Palace Theater Albany, New York April 3, 2019

The pictures I have provided were snapped by me with my phone to give you an idea of the backdrop to the music prior to the show. That screen changed with each song and it was very trippy psychedelic colors and images that mirrored the timeframe of Jimi in his prime. -Keith “MuzikMan” Hannaleck
The Electric Church arrived in Albany, NY last night with its all-star cast for the Experience Hendrix 2019 Tour.The music of Jimi Hendrix continues to thrive and be embraced by fans worldwide. This is a tour I have been wanting to catch for several years now and I finally made it, and so glad I did.
The best thing that could happen to this event is the involvement of Billy Cox. Anyone familiar with Jimi’s music knows that they were friends for a long time and Billy played bass on some of Jimi’s albums. Also, with Janie Hendrix involved it makes everything legit. Also havin…
