Hooked On The Music

Featured Artist

Featured Artist – Nick Byrne

Acoustic music features heavily at this time of year, as festival stages and the like are filled with acoustic acts. Nick Byrne adds to this list, as his acoustic music is definitely festival-worthy, with folk sounds laced through his guitar-leading song.

Featured Artist – Thom Ra

Reading, UK is a staple on any band’s tour circuit and home to the famous festival, so it would only be right that new great talent is emerging from the Reading music scene. Thom Ra is one example of this, with his experimental Alternative and Folk sound seeping through in his music. (more…)

Featured Artist – Lost Element

Texas-born Lost Element may be new to your ears (and mine too), but they’ve been around since 2011, playing at 94.5 The Buzz‘s Weenie Roast and opening for other acts in the area. They’re also an award-winning band, as they (quite rightfully) won “New Band of The Year” at the 2011 Texas Buzz Music Awards.

Featured Artist – jolivi

For Los Angeles singer Jolivi, she’s had to go through some tough times (grief and heartbreak to name a few) to find her voice and style in songwriting. The Hawaii-born artist has been producing her latest EP Just For You with Grammy nominated producer Brandon Friesen, who has engineered songs for and worked with artists such as Nickelback, Billy Ray Cyrus and Papa Roach.

Featured Artist – Johanna Winkel

Having started playing music and singing at the age of just five, American artist Johanna Winkel has made a name for herself, after singing on her Dad’s radio show. She’s played lots of gigs in different clubs around America, including her hometown of Colorado. Her stage confidence was seen shortly after, as she was given all the lead roles in plays and musical productions, showing off what she can do.
