Jarrah

One of my favorite emerging songwriters/recording artists out of the Gold Coast of Australia is JaC Stone. JaC turned me onto her friend Jarrah. And loving this no frills video of the only song that is presently on her YouTube channel. Definitely, this is another tasty songwriter to keep a close eye on. Enjoy! GC

Alexz Johnson - An Indie Story

Came across a great indie artist story on Hypebot.Com this morning. The artist is Alexz Johnson who has a great work ethic and some well crafted songs. The story on Hypebot illustrates the struggle that most aspiring recording artists wish they could go through. Alexz had managed to gain two different major label record deals, but ultimately they went nowhere. And that story is more common than not. Instead of become jaded and dropping out, she has kept at it. Rarely are artists able to keep their eye on the ball and stay in the game long enough to get any traction. Alexz Johnson is one of those rare artists who understands the mantra that persistence and determination alone can be omnipotent. Fortunately for Alexz Johnson, her music is solid and she has developed enough of a fan base to raise money to record and tour BEFORE she records and hits the road to tour. Besides just being a recording artist, she is like those in that ultimate entrepreneur class of business people who understand the idea that it is always best to get the order before buying the supplies. Alexz Johnson appears to be an artist and business woman worth keeping an eye on. GC

Stella Blackrose

Stella Blackrose, Rebecca Lou Armstrong, TheIndies.Com, The Indies
Rebecca Lou Armstrong of Stella Blackrose
Stella Blackrose is one of those names like Led Zeppelin or Jethro Tull, for there is no individual with the name, only a solidly badass band from Denmark fronted by a powerful lead vocalist named Rebecca Lou Armstrong. I first wrote about the band several years back after they had self recorded some excellent raw tracks in their rehearsal studio with something like two mics. LOVED THOSE TRACKS... The band searched for and found a producer, but ended up with some over produced tracks that lost that edge compared to when they were making recordings on their own.... oh well... it's happened to the best of 'em. But the band has proven staying power. They are still at it and have not lost that raw energy that lovers of hard rock should dig. Enjoy! GC

It's only my opinion, but this first track below is one of those early recordings that I referred to as being overlyproduced. BUT, it does still totally rock. My gut is it would be great if the band re-released their basement tapes and strove to make other more raw recordings like them. The pure raw intensity of the group shined bright on those early self made demos. The band has that killer sound live. Bottled lighting! A real rock band!
