The instrumentation is incredible, electrifying guitar riffs, heavy hitting drum beats whilst having this western style intertwined, combining such popular genres of music and creating it in his own way.

Purple Corporation releases Blue Bird: Embracing their own revised Rock sound

Five-piece band Purple Corporation has recently released their latest single ‘Bluebird’, using their own unique Rock style, it’s a pretty spectacular piece.

Embracing the Rock and Roll through the clashing of the drums and the smooth guitar riffs, giving it this catchy melody that intertwines with the raspy vocals, parts tend to pick up the pace swiftly, as the instrumentation begins to get a bit more loud and crazy and the vocals begin to stretch to the high notes.

Then it comes down and the instrumentals are lowered, focusing on the slight tap on the drums and the incredible riffs on the guitar giving them their moment to shine, the pace gets slower and the vocals begin deeper, towards the end the drum solo takes the lead and overpowers every element, adding in a trumpet to the mix which was definitely a surprise.

Purple Corporation has created a piece that has so many different instruments coming together to create this lively and super entertaining melody, this one is a must!

The Good Side – It Don’t Matter: Rhythm-Drenched Rock n Roll

To create their latest single The Good Side took all the best elements from seminal Rock n Roll artists and created their own brand of palpably sweet rock. Whilst their sound may not be prodigally inclined their ability to create a soundscape that feels like home is almost unparalleled. Their traditional styling is complemented by the raw energy being projected into the microphone and the audible synergy of the instrumentalists as the progressions of sound weave together concordantly for the ultimate taste of raucous alchemy. So, it’s safe to say their recent release of It Don’t Matter is an offering of rhythm drenched Rock n Roll. The quintessential energy created by the powerhouse of artists is surely not a sound that any Rock-inclined audiophile could resist.

It really is no wonder why The Good Side have already sold out at the major Rock venues in Nashville after the release of their debut EP which was released back in 2009.

You can check out It Don’t Matter for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now or head on over to the band’s official website.

Jaggermouth – Stillwater – Blues Meets Indie Rock With A Powerful Set Of Personal Lyrics

There is really something special about those artists who are able to let the audience in through their music. For some performer, it is not just about getting up on a stage and play: their art is all about human connection. It is a mean of expression that allows them to share their ideas, fears, hopes and dreams with whomever out there is willing to just stop for a couple of minutes and listen up.

Showing your feelings through music requires a lot of strength, because you have to be quite brave to expose your most vulnerable sides for the world to see! This is definitely the case of JaggerMouth, a band whose songs are like a mirror into the soul of the performer, and a powerful example of what it is like to write songs that mean something on an emotional level.

JaggerMouth’s recent release, Stillwater, is a wonderful and direct song where the compelling and tasteful melodies go hand in hand with the artist’s emotional lyrics, igniting the sound with blues, jazz and rock overtones!
