The year is coming to a close and ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE presents our EDITOR'S CHOICE featuring a list of 25 artists who made the year rock. You can check out who made the cut n the latest edition of ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE or you can hear it straight from the editor's mouth in this special series of podcasts showcasing these artists and their music! Recorded on the fly in the last few hours of completing the current issue ROCKWIRED editor BRIAN LUSH speaks frankly and fondly about the artists that made the year exciting.
ROCKWIRED.COM is pleased to be re-launching the online radio series ABORIGINAL SOUNDS - A CELEBRATION OF CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN INDIAN AND FIRST NATIONS MUSIC after a rather lengthy hiatus. Throughout Indian Country you've got your traditional music and you got your blues music, reggae, hip hop and country but you're not hearing a great deal of straight ahead rock n roll and your certainly not seeing a huge number of Native women representing the genre. Along comes a rocker by the name of DAVIDICA (Oglala Sioux) who has turned audiences on to her message of hope and survival thanks to her electrifying live show. This singer songwriter has us waiting anxiously for the release of her forthcoming CD MY HEART SPEAKS which is due out in the fall of 2013. THE CD will feature the stomping INSIDE MY HEAD, the haunting I WALK AMONG THE DEAD and the hopeful I CARRY ON.
In the days before that damned government shutdown, the band STONE SOUL FOUNDATION not only gave us a taste of their forthcoming CD with the release of their single TAKING BACK THE U.S., they have given a raucous little rocker that speaks to the blowout taking place in our Nation’s Capitol. But politics and a government shutdown aside, STONE SOUL FOUNDATION are taking their brand of metal meets every variation of modern music you can think of on the road and are also in the process of writing for a new album due out in 2014.
In an age where good time rock n roll has been abandoned for all of that buttoned up Americana crap,
HAZARD HEAD gave us at ROCKWIRED hope in 2013 for a world where rock n roll can be dirty, filthy and fun again. Taking their cue from the likes of MOTLEY CRUE and just about every balls-to-the-wall metal band from the past thirty years, HAZARD HEAD’s E.P. is garage rock made for the stadium and highlighted by KYLE MIKOLAJCZYKS recklessness with the Les Paul, STEVE VEE HAZARDS handiwork with the bass, TAYLOR GREENSHIELDS’ thunderous percussion and the contributions of their new lead singer BRETT BLACKER.
Blues rock troubadour TODD WOLFE has cut his teeth as a reliable session man but it was his work with SHERYL CROW that put him on the map. Having known CROW since her days of singing back up for MICHAEL JACKSON,
WOLFE became an instrumental part of TUESDAY NIGHT MUSIC CLUB - CROW's GRAMMY-winning debut as well as one some of her following releases. WOLFE was also an electrifying presence on CROWE's worldwide tours but these days he is taking that charismatic stage presence and musicality center stage for his latest outfit THE TODD WOLFE BAND. The band's latest release MILES TO GO gives listeners a taste of WOLFE's tight arrangements, electrifying chops as well as the chops of his partners in crime ROGER VOSS (drums) and JUSTINE GARDNER (bass). Evidently the album MILES TO GO is proof that that the TODD WOLFE BAND has indeed arrived.
Some music is way too big for just a mere EP but there is nothing mere about 21rst CENTURY MEGOLAMANIAC - the latest release from the industrial metal band MADLIFE. KYLE CUNNINGHAM (drums) and CARLOS PAGAN (bass) make up the thunderous rhythm section. While ISAIAH STUART 's blistering guitar work kicks the material into fifth gear it is vocalist ANGRY PHILL who kicks this shit into the stratosphere with his venomous wail as evidenced on the tracks JUST ONE GUN, TO LIVE AND DIE IN HOLLYWOOD and STILL ALIVE.
