New Clients: Reality Stricken

"Every track on this EP leaps out of the speakers with enough force to blow down an entire block of rowhomes. This is the real rock sound of today, with big, loud riffs and chords, massive drums, and huge walls of shouted vocals. [...] There is simply not a dull moment on this record, and by the time it's over you'll be cheering for more. All you can do is hit 'Play' again. With releases this good, it's about damn time that the Philly-area rock scene got its due."

So I wrote when I reviewed Norristown, PA's Reality Stricken on One Note Ahead in September. The sad news is that now, I must stop featuring them on One Note Ahead. The good news is that now, I am their publicist!

Check out the fantastic EP I reviewed, Signal Fire, and I'll keep you posted about big shows.

New Clients - Bad Apples

I'm happy to welcome to my client roster an up-and-coming trio known as Bad Apples. Their jazz-funk style also incorporates elements of rock, blues, and soul. All three regular members sing, sometimes offering gritty leads and sunny harmonies in the same song. From New Haven, Connecticut, Bad Apples have toured the United States and are currently gigging frequently in the Northeast. As you might have guessed, I will be promoting them in the Philly area specifically. In fact, they have a big show approaching on January 27th at The Blockley Pourhouse. For this one, they'll most likely be joined on stage by a full horn section, making this show a must-see.

Check out the band at:

And if you cannot see them in person, you might like to know that they have two albums out, both easily available online. The second, Today Begins At Night, was just released in July.
