Tyrone Wells (December 23, 2012)

Tyrone Wells has been putting out great and gorgeous music for the better part of 10 years and it's time that he became more of a household name.  Tyrone isn't flashy or showy - he's just talented.  He has a crystal clear, beautiful voice and his songs are from the heart.  He fits nicely into the genre of singer songwriter with John Mayer (before he started getting weird) and Gavin DeGraw (remember him?) but Tyrone just keeps plugging away building up a solid and dedicated fan base.  His latest album, "This Love" is another example of what he is capable of.  Do him and yourself a favor and give any of his music a listen ( and find out just how great he is!

Have a great week and enjoy the music!

Deaf Havana (December 16, 2012)

Deaf Havana ( is a great band from the UK who showcases the raw energy of great rock while maintaining incredible musicianship, vocals, etc.  It is the truly special rock singer who can pour his heart and soul into each word and yet still sing them in tune and so the lyrics can be understood and treasured.  Deaf Havana's album "Fools and Worthless Liars" is an amazing example of what a great rock album can be.  There are so many good songs on this album including one of my favorites "Little White Lies."  I also love that they aren't afraid to mix things up with some quieter more introspective tunes (i.e. "Hunstanton Pier" and "The Past Six Years").  There aren't many (and definitely not enough) bands making music like this right now! This great album is on sale for $5.99 on iTunes (for 14 songs!) so definitely give them a listen and pick it up!

We are only two weeks away from our end of the year "Best of 2012" feature! Be sure to invite your friends to the blog ( so they'll know about all of these great emerging bands!

Have a great week and enjoy the music!
