Blondie’s Parallel Lines

Posted by on May 18, 2018

How we attach ourselves to music is based on how we come across it, and who or where we are when we first hear it. For a long time I didn’t get Blondie. Awhile back I picked up a...

Song of the Moment: “Afraid of the Dark” by Lindi Ortega

Posted by on Jun 15, 2018

Thanks to my favorite SiriusXM radio station, Outlaw Country, I've gotten introduced to quite a few badass alt country musicians. My recent favorite is Canadian songstress, Lindi Ortega, who released her fifth album, Liberty, at the end of March. The album is a spaghetti western and deals with working out of darkness and as the album progresses, it does just that.

Blondie’s Parallel Lines

May 18, 2018

How we attach ourselves to music is based on how we come across it, and who or where we are when we first hear it. For a long time I didn’t get Blondie. Awhile back I picked up a copy of Parallel Lines. For a few days it was the only record I wanted to hear. It was the right time and the right context. I’d like to take some time to share with Women In Rock...

Simple Machines: The Wheel featuring The Juliana Experience and The Holy Rollers

May 18, 2018

Looking back on my life I feel I was really lucky to be who and where I was in the early nineties. I was in my early twenties and tapped into the D.I.Y. punk scene. I was part of a volunteer run record store called Network in Dayton, Ohio. My life was records, bands and zines. It felt like my friends and I were creating our own culture. It was the time of Riot...

Embracing Destiny; Bebe Buell on New Album and Life as a Musician

May 18, 2018

Bebe Buell has been on my radar for awhile as one of the coolest women in rock. I connected with her a few years ago when she was developing a band and a new live show called Baring It All. Now, she has released a brand new album that pretty much tells the story of her life; Baring It All: Greetings from Nashbury Park. Bebe Buell has been living it for years....

Screaming Females in Ink and Bronze

All At Once is largely about the importance of art; the lyrics evoke color and line and material in a way that had me Googling artists and pondering the risks and rewards of painting and being painted, seeing and being seen.

Up and Coming, Emma Hern Releases First EP

May 15, 2018

Emma Hern of Nashville, Tennessee got her roots back in Richmond, Virginia. The singer/songwriter first found her voice when she was 14 years old. “I went to a very hippy, crunchy granola high school and we had this [open mic] that was outside every Wednesday and Friday and kids would do slam poetry and sing. When I was in 8th grade, some of my friends...

Artist Profile: Angela Perley

May 15, 2018

Angela Perley, of Angela Perley and The Howlin’ Moons, always exudes coolness. She’s dressed in paisley bell bottoms, leather jacket and red hat for a gray day Monday interview at the Fox in the Snow in Columbus, Ohio. On a daily basis, the full time musician looks nothing but the part of a 70’s musician who just happens to be stuck in the 21st...

The Dollyrots: Pop Punk Power Parents

Arriving at the Southgate House Revival to interview The Dollyrots starts out like any other interview; Kalie and I grab a drink and wait for their tour manager to let us know they were ready. Even as we walked into the green room, it looks like any other band getting ready for a show, slightly chaotic but perfectly in character with any other punk band. But the...
