Fresh Hops take their debut album Everyone Act Normal out on the road
Fresh Hops is gearing up to play a 15 day straight, tour to promote their new debut album hitting 8 States. LMNR caught up with them before they headed out on the road. We had the great opportunity to catch up with the band for an interview to shed some light on how they are doing lately and their plans for the future.
For this band spotlight, we've turned our attention to the twin cities, and soul and funk warrior, SONNYBOY, a.k.a. Sheldon Riser. What does it take to have Rolling Stone declare, "...one of the best unsigned bands to come out of Minneapolis since Prince and The Time." SONNYBOY isn’t one to be restricted to categorization or industry labels, Sonnyboy is known as an urban misfit on the musical scene. A multi- layered artist whose talents have taken him all over the world, Sonnyboy is a musician, singer, composer, producer, and bandleader.
Paranoid Social Club
Paranoid Social Club, a radio friendly rock band from Portland Maine is getting ready to embark on their first national tour in years. The quartet, consisting of Dave Gutter and Jon Roods on guitar and bass respectively, also are well known as members of Rustic Overtones. Joining them are drummer Craig Sala (Mid Atlantic indie rock fans will recognize him as the drummer of Planeside) and Trent Gay on guitar and vocals. The band has received international acclaim for their energetic live performances, and they enjoyed a radio hit a few years ago on the strength of the song Wasted. For many fans that was their first introduction to the band, many of whom discovered the song as a result of its inclusion on the sound track of the cult movie, Beerfest.
Erin Harpe and the Delta Swingers
In The Band’s Own Words
With a new album out on Vizz Tone records and a solid delta blues lineage, Boston's Erin Harpe takes her Delta Swingers out on national tour. Oh yea, they're taking their electro funk rock band Lovewhip along for the ride. Underestimate her at your peril.
