Fall is here and as we pass the Autumnal equinox that means lots of great new music! Now that people are back at school it's a great time for bands to release new albums, singles and more. There's lots of great stuff coming up in the next few weeks and here are some highlights of things that are out now!
NEEDMORE (http://www.myspace.com/NEEDMORE) just released a new single "Lost My Way" which is really good. It's the best $1 you can spend this week!
Andrew Ripp (http://www.myspace.com/andrewripp) has a brand new album out called "She Remains The Same" which is produced by one of my favorite artists Dave Barnes (http://davebarnes.com/) - if you don't know Dave go listen to his stuff now - he's got an incredible voice and his songs are amazing. But in this case it's all about Andrew who has created an outstanding album. I was more and more impressed with each and every song - definitely give it a listen and it's on Amazon's MP3 site for a mere $6.99.
The next two bands don't qualify as "emerging" bands but their new albums are so good I have to comment...
Zac Brown Band (http://www.zacbrownband.com/) album "You Get What You Give" is phenomenal. I'm so impressed and even more so considering the incredible pressure this band was under to produce something special considering the huge success of The Foundation. They've done it in a big, big way and this album is going to be on the charts for a loooong time!
The Script (http://www.thescriptmusic.com/us/home/) also has a brand new album out called "Science and Faith" and I was ready to be disappointed. I was really concerned that the pressure from their label and their rise to super-stardom was going to make it hard for them to make a great second album - but they've done it. Tons of great songs on here as well so give them a listen!
Lots more to come so keep checking out the Emerge Music Group on facebook, twitter, Ping and of course here!
Enjoy the music!
