    Lyrically clever and unique, great sound, super fun and sexy with a distinct humorous twist. On-Point background vocals by Rabbit. Produced by Ant of Atmosphere. This is really fun. You can’t NOT like this song and video.

    Continuing with the theme of female singer songwriters, this is Sizzy Rocket, Cali/New York based. Bridging multiple genres, from rap/hip-hop to rock punk, funk… she really doesn’t have any limits. Live peformances range from wild to to somewhat subdued. Her KEXP session is of particular interest, doing solo, songs from her album. Her lyrics are like no one else, and again, I can’t even begin to really explain how broad her work is. I’m going to post here a pop funk song (You let me know how you might describe it) but don’t sell her short in that some of her other work is far deeper and of intellectual interest. This one has a hell of a hook tho… you’ll know it when you hear it.

    This odd story telling (sort of) song with an infectious melody is well… infectious. The video is really well done, and is worth watching all the way through for the interesting ending.

    Note that the main char’ in the video is played (best lip sync ever) by the English actor David Thewlis, who you’ve undoubtedly scene in a number of television shows and movies over the years. The actual singer, makes an appearance as a cameo… interesting way to make a video to say the least. It’s engaging, and the lyrics might be interpreted as both dark and uplifting simultaneously. At the minimum, it’s thought provoking.

    There is a second version featuring Elton John as well, and while I think it’s ok, I prefer this original.

    Check out some of their other work for it’s weirdness, engaging themes around economics, relationships and more.

    These young woman, just killin’ it live. Hard rock personified. From their originals to their Metallica covers, they just knock it clean out of the park. This peformance has been on my repeat/playlist at work for a few weeks now. Really enjoy it a lot. Highly recommended if you’re a hard rock fan… and worth taking a look/listen even if you’re not.

    Go see The Bright Light Social Hour on Monday at Pour House. Came down to Jacksonville to see them and Mo Lowda. They put on one hell of a show and I can’t wait to see a full set.

    Diggin/ up some gold.

    I was fortunate to be able to photograph Maggie Koerner at the Charleston Pourhouse back in 2019, when she opened, for another favorite, Tank and the Bangas. Recently, I’ve been going back through shoots I’ve done in the past, and attempting to apply new methods of editing to my images… as both my ability and the software has improved over the years, allowing me to get ‘more’ from even those older images.

    I’ll add the link for that at the bottom if you care to poke around… but definitely check out Maggie’s work. Her originals are really good and she nails down a few cover tunes as well. If you ever get the chance to see her live, don’t pass it up, she absolutely kills the stage show.

    Her song, “Love Drug” (FF to 4:30) is probably my fave from this session, but for sure it’s all excellent. Get your face melted!

    Smooth, brilliant, entrancing, and addicting all come to mind when attempting to pin words to this masterwork from Marcus Brown. It’s so soulful and danceable, the opening 3 track run is easily one of the best 3 track runs of last year. It’s a little bit front-loaded but it awesome all the way through. As fresh as it gets in the year of our lord 2023. Following the success of this record, Marcus Brown signed to XL records.
    Favorite Tracks: “Quantum Suicide,” “Shed That Fear,” “Daddy,” “The Fields,” and “Workers Interlude”

    Their 2024 release Catching Chickens EP is easily one of the best pieces of music to come out this year! Peak!
    “Hell of a Ride” and “Poison-Soaked” are SOTY contenders (both in my top 5 so far).

    MAY 21st at the Charleston Pour House we’ll see the return of the American psychobilly trio, Rev. Horton heat. I got to photograph them back in October of 2019. You can see me experimenting with the ever popular for concert photography ‘Star filter’ in these. Done right it’s fantastic… overdone, it’s corny. I may have baked some of these too long… but hey, all in good fun.

    A great show by some very remarkably talented and experienced musicians. Worth it in the spades to see Mr. Heath play the hell out of his guitar!!

    I’m signed up to shoot that night, so if you make it out, say hi !!
