Artist: Tough On Fridays
New Release: October 1
Genre: Rock; Pop-Rock; Garage Rock; Alternative Rock; Pop Punk
Located in: : Georgetown, TX
Tough On Fridays is a rising alternative rock duo from Georgetown, Texas. Comprised of best friends Katie and Caleigh, the two have turned their shared passion for music into an exciting blend of pop and rock!
Their brand-new song, "October 1,” is the lead single for a series of EPs they are releasing in 2019. Caleigh, Tough On Fridays’ guitarist, wrote a song called “Summer” (released as the “A” side for the single “Under-Appreciated” in April 2019) about her ongoing issues with seasonal depression. What is different is that Caleigh’s depression is the reverse of the usual … instead of her depression hitting in winter, hers hits in summer. Thus, “October 1” is a celebration for Caleigh of all things Fall: the change to cooler weather, Halloween, drinking coffee just to stay warm. It’s a driving, fast-paced song that sounds deceptively simple but, like fall preparing for winter, a lot is happening under the surface that’s not so readily apparent.
When we all got together to plan this project, we knew that, like all our other recording projects, we needed not only to produce a lot of material (which we usually do because we tend to work fast) but it had to keep moving our music forward. This project was totally different than our others as we recorded everything at The Bubble in Austin, TX, with engineer/producer Chris “Frenchie” Smith (Toadies, Front Bottoms, Residual Kid). This was the first time we’d had someone other than producer/manager Eric on the production side when we were creating the recordings. Having Frenchie and Eric both there, as well as a more defined direction in our records was huge for us. While we can honestly say that we love all our records (yes, we actually listen to our own stuff long after the records are done), this change in the recording process was big for us.
Coming up Next...
We just finished our Kickstarter crowdfunding project and with that, we have enough funding to do our first album which we plan on starting early next year. We recorded enough material at The Bubble in January and February so that we can release new songs every month through the end of the year including some acoustic stuff we really wanted to do. Right now, we’re catching our breath a bit since we’re both in school and just finished exams and we continue to write new stuff. Always.

Artist: Soul Creed
New Release: Hold On
Genre: Rock, Christian Rock
Located in: Charleston, SC
This song is where Nashville meets Classic Rock! Influenced by iconic artists such as The Beatles, Tom Petty, Jars of Clay, and Christ Stapleton, this acoustic-driven, slide guitar reeling newbie with punchy 4-part harmony chorus vocals shares the story of a lonley 18 yr old girl raised in an orphanage and forced to face adult life on her own without hope in her world. However, the story turns positive with an admonishment for her to "Hold On" there is Someone you can turn to for help! No matter what circumstance you face in life, you are NEVER abandoned or alone!
The music we're creating is both lively and passionate telling stories that convey common human struggles with personal pain and loss, desire, and dealing with the hand life dishes out, and the ongoing spiritual search for love and truth. This song and style mark a step up in maturity in our music journey.
Soul Creed is getting set to perform several weekend dates this summer in Western New York, North Carolina, and Georgia, as well as a visit Nashville, TN in October! On June 16 we will be hosting the 2019 Extreme Tour event in North Charleston, SC. We are currently working on a studio album titled "Stake The Claim", looking to see release sometime in the next year!
New Release: Taking Over
Genre: Alternative Rock
Located in: Chicago
The song is about when you start to realize your addictions are starting to control and take over your life. We tried to emulate the feeling of stress or your body's heartbeat racing through the beat and intensity of the music.. If you’ve ever drank all night and well into the next day with the help of stimulants, you can relate to this song.
The music we are creating is...
"'Retox’ is a collection of songs about addiction, obsession, and an overall loss of self-control. Nothing in these songs are fabricated. You wanna hear stories about a particular fucked up time in my life, put on some headphones and jump down the rabbit hole."--Stephen Mueller, Lead Vocals, Guitar.
Right now we are...
5/31/19 they performing at Cubby Bear in Chicago along our friends and music colleagues Local H and AM Taxi. More exciting Summer show announcements coming soon!!!
Artist: Karl Sky
New Release: Free
Located in: : LaCrosse, WI
Karl Sky's Music is a pleasant, melodic journey that navigates delicately through the human spirit. "Free" is more than about celebrating a feeling of being in one place at one time. It shows us that you can take what life throws at you, unwillingly have your path change and still embrace a freedom that each of us desires I was heavily influenced by groups such as The Beatles, and Singer/Songwriters Jim Croce, John Denver, Van Morrison & Crosby Stills & Nash.
I lean on a heavy blend of acoustic/electric guitar throughout. The acoustic paints the delicate side of the emotional palette and the electric allows the raw energy to escape. I believe anyone can listen to this song and find some element of it in their adult life.
"Free" is technically my first single release ever, off of a brand new album I just finished after having been inactive musically for several years. Bits and pieces of this song go way back to when I first started writing. So I feel I've come full circle and now I have a rather large catalog of music to show the world.
Right now I am actively working with an influencial publisher in Nashville, focusing on perfecting other songs in my catalog, that will be pitched to major artists.
Artist: Black Rose Reception
New Release: Up jumped the devil
Genre: Hard rock
Located in: Indiana
The message in this song is you can overcome the demons of depression, suicide, and stress that we all deal with. There are great and professional people out there who can help.
The music we are creating is an old and new school music mix. We are going in studio recording more new tracks so expect more and watch for the matching merch.
Artist: Living Waters
New Release: Light of the World
Genre: Christian Rock
Located in: New England
This is a song we did hundreds of times in concert back in our earliest days, in the late 70's and early 80's. We have just recorded a fresh version on our new album, "Overflow". The original classic band line-up is featured in full on this one. It reaches back and touches our deepest roots while tieing thematically and otherwise with our newest creations on the new album.
We are DEFinitely recording more this summer, with more classic material from both Mike and Mark!
Artist: Douglas Aldridge
New Release: We’d Better Stroll
Genre: Folk Rock
Located in: Atlanta, GA USA
This song brings together three different stories of dark or desperate life situations.
My music is always a direct product of who I am and what I’m going through. My music is my life and it reflects all those around me, family, friends, experiences all rolled into one package.
As a third-generation singer and entertainer, I have no other choice in the matter. I can’t do anything else but make music. It’s the only thing in my life that ever has or will feel right.

Artist: Garmonsway, Gibbon & Harrington
New Release: Our Heroes
Genre: Rock Ballad
Located in: UK
We all have our musical heroes, whatever our age and tastes in music. ‘Our Heroes’ celebrates this and reflects on the innocence of being in your early teens (or younger) and experiencing your first rock concerts with your friends.
I wanted the song to appeal to everyone, whatever their age, wherever they live, but for me, it is about being early teens and experiencing my first rock concerts in the Northeast of England.
I also wanted the feel of the song to be such that you could imagine it being played on stage with the audience singing along, almost like an anthem to those times.
I’ve brought together three experienced and inventive musicians to explore and record my songs. The musical vibe has both a rock and acoustic feel merged together, and together with the paintings present the whole package. I like to think it portrays a cultured message, musically, lyrically and visually.
Right now we are busy promoting the ‘Northeast’ ep – one of the reasons for the band name was that we could all promote the album through each of our own musical circles.

Artist: Cabela and Schmitt
New Release: ALL
Genre: Soft Rock
Located in: Nebraska and Colorado
ALL is a tribute to someone who came into our lives and helped us learn and live and love. In the style of Eagles, Tom Petty or the Beatles.
The music we are creating is...
Cabela and Schmitt are a trio of friends who have been collaborating for over 40 years. Our only goal as a group at this stage in our lives is to share with others what we have so freely and abundantly been given.
We come from the heart of the United States and humble beginnings, where hard work and perseverance is just a way of life. Cabela and Schmitt are songwriters/composers. We all have the God-given ability to choose how we want to view this world. We are all given a voice, in some way or another, to communicate how we see and experience our world.
It is our choice how and when to use that voice. Cabela and Schmitt have chosen to expose our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings in the best way we can…through a song.
We have always wanted to share our music without giving up this wonderful life we’ve been given and we are so very happy and excited to be able to share with you! ~Cabela and Schmitt
Right now we are...

Artist: Thomas Thunder
New Release: Nebula
Genre: Progressive Rock
Located in: Fairhaven, Ma USA
This song is a Progressive Rock Song and explores the concept of space and specifically gas and dust from a Super Nova otherwise known as a dying star. This song is impactful because space is truly the final frontier of exploration.
This song is important to my musical direction at this time because I’ve always found space exploration interesting and a Nebula not only are regions of dying stars but are often star forming by clumping together gas and dust; which most musicians hope to be successful “stars”.
Right now I’m working on a video for Nebula which should be out shortly on my Youtube channel. The song will be out on all digital platforms as well like Spotify.

Our Music brand is Energy and We are passionate about playing .

Free of self doubt, free of sabotaging thinking or being controlled by others life for yours. Destiny free of addiction, afflictions of mind and spirit . It's important not just for or about each one of us but is a connection as many people have gone through things like this. Trying to be strong, get better, and improve. This is important to our Band at this moment as we are trying reach a larger audience and build our fan base.
We are preparing to work on our third Album soon , Tony had something a little different in mind on at least one song in the mix and I'm not sure how many songs it will be either we will see.
