Andrew Morstein (October 27, 2013)

In over 6 years of weekly posts, I haven't ever featured an artist like Andrew Morstein, but now is the time as Andrew has just released "The Runaway EP", his first solo release.  Andrew's incredible voice is often (and appropriately) compared to Josh Groban and I can see him following in those footsteps.  This EP (available on iTunes contains 4 songs (3 in English, 1 in Italian) and each shows the beauty of his voice and the versatility of this artist.

Andrew is also a part of the a capella group Gentleman's Rule and takes the lead in the song "Not Over You" ( which shows off more of his pop side.

Have a great week and enjoy the music!

Courage My Love (October 20, 2013)

Courage My Love is a Canadian alternative rock band started by twin sisters who could easily be related to Avril Lavigne based on the great music they create.  Their latest release, "Becoming," is full of loud guitars and drums but also contains quieter and softer moments, insightful lyrics and quality singing.  These sisters, Mercedes and Phoenix, along with their band mate Brandon, have formed a band that will speak to so many young people and their upcoming tour across Canada and much of the US will hopefully get them a bigger audience. They deserve it!

Have a great week and enjoy the music!

The Fold (October 13, 2013)

I had to double and triple check my records to realize that I have never featured The Fold before. This surprised me because I've been a big fan of theirs for years. Their album "Secrets Keep You Sick" (which came out in 2007) is one of my all time favorite albums and "Gravity" (from 2006 release "This Too Shall Pass") is one of my favorite songs.  Sorry it's taken me so long to share them with all of you but now is the time - especially with the release of their brand new album "Moving Past" dropping this Tuesday (Oct 15).  It's another fantastic release from this rock band that fits in quite nicely next to a band like Jimmy Eat World.

You can check out two of the songs from their new album here:
Moving Past:
Bye Bye Love:

Please give them a listen and get ready to pick up their new album on Tuesday!

Have a great week and enjoy the music!

Prince of Spain (October 5, 2013)

Prince of Spain has just released their debut album "His Majesty" and it's pop music that is smooth and sweet.  The guys who make up this band came from The Scene Aesthetic and it's unclear if this is a side project or a full transition to a new band. Either way, these songs are warm and lush and made for enjoying with a cup of hot apple cider on a beautiful autumn day.  The album is available for $8 on iTunes and you can stream all of it on Soundcloud:

Have a great week and enjoy the music,
