Cleveland, Tennessee-based indie hip-hop artist Kyle Sirk makes that supremely motivated music as he is only focused on growing and succeeding. Its this extra fire that sees him wanting to see his hard work to the finish line, that drives him to push as hard as he can go.

Cleveland band Hollin Kings power in with brilliant ”Hold On”

Hollin Kings are a riff-fusing Rock n’ Roll band from cozy Cleveland in Ohio. Their solos, strong lyrics and powerful vocals impress mightily here with the new track ”Hold On’‘.

Hold On” is all about holding onto what is important to you in life and never ever letting go. You know what you want so why not just work hard to keep it? This is a vital message in these days of flakiness and ghosting each other. I like the passion and energy here as the vocals show the hunger of the band. They have only been around for two years and show such an incredible cohesion together.

Hollin Kings flip the switch on during the ”Hold On” and the light is burning brightly. This is a band with a huge future as they make terrific music with a magnificent message. After meeting in the same town and through a shared passion of music, they are a band headed in the right direction.

Cleveland’s The Vumms impress with groovy debut ”Count The Roses”

Count your blessings no matter what they are. You never know how long it’s going to last for as life has a way of smacking you on the bum from time to time.

Using the gifts that you have to make you blessed is vital too, otherwise you just never know what you could achieve. This is the message from the newcomers on the US Garage Rock scene. Their name is The Vumms and oh my goodness, they are an awesome band. With a great sound, positive lyrics and fantastic vocals, they have it all. After stumbling through some detours while recording, they have blessed us with the groovy-filled gem ”Count The Roses”. This is also the name of their debut 5 track EP that is a terrific listen. The boys sparkle brightly and I feel like their sound is timeless. They could be from the 60’s. I love the solos and feel like I have bright shades on, my hair is still long and I’m jamming to them at a dusty festival in the middle of nowhere.

Stream this awesome new band from Cleveland in Ohio right here on their Soundcloud channel and get into the groove.

77 Nxrth (LZ Lenny Hall ft TXCKA, ColeMane and Saint Tom drop impressive visuals for ‘’Italy’’

‘77 Nxrth’ aka ‘LZ Lenny Hall’ has just shared his latest video and it’s a biggie. His new crew are in attendance and this is an exciting chapter for Cleveland Hip Hop.

‘’Italy’’ is the debut single for the new collective from Cleveland, Ohio in the USA. Home of the long-suffering NFL team, the Cleveland Browns, the crew throw a touchdown for this effort. This is a fun song to listen to and full of Mama’s pasta.

With a few of the guys of Italian- American descent, ‘’Italy’’ is a shout out to their natural home. My favorite verse on this track is definitely ‘TXCKA’. He rips it with a doomy raw style that shreds through the beat. Out of the whole crew, he shows the most potential. There are no weak links in the crew however, you can tell that the guys picked up their game for this one. 

A new crew in the making, there is bound to be more released real soon and the progression will be exciting to see. 

Tune in here and see the visuals for this bouncing track on YouTube.
