THE STRUTS upgrade London show due to overwhelming demand | #thestruts #music




Monday 18th September **Tickets on sale NOW**


“Like the Strokes reborn as Queen super-fans – right down to singer Luke Spiller’s amazingly spot-on Freddie Mercury impression.”

Due to overwhelming demand, The Struts’ exclusive UK headline show on Monday 18th September – announced last week for The Garage, Islington – will now be at Camden’s Electric Ballroom.

Already proving to be the hottest ticket in town, the flamboyant four-piece stride back across the Atlantic to play in London in celebration of their brand new single ‘One Night Only’, ahead of their massive US tour with Foo Fighters in October.

The recently-released lyric video captures the band in true rock’n’roll style, and is the perfect taster for their hugely anticipated second album, due next year. It’s the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2016 debut Everybody Wants.


Having recently played to over 60,000 fans supporting The Who in Quebec to a rapturous reception, and being included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s Playlist alongside the likes of NIN, Chance The Rapper and St Vincent, The Struts’ meteoric rise continues a-pace. ‘One Night Only’ has set fire to American radio and looks set to be the breakout hit of the summer.

The single has been greeted with rave reviews in the UK with Kerrang magazine devoting two pages to the band’s magnificent return and The Sun declaring, “’One Night Only’ is an anthemic and bombastic tune inspired by the glory days of British glam rock.”

Classic Rock claim, “The Struts continue their inexorable march to world domination with [their] effervescent new song… a typically huge chorus and bits that sound like Queen and little bits that sound a bit like Coldplay, machined-tooled for swaying audiences and drunken, communal singalongs”, whilst music blogs across the spectrum have been hailing the genius of the new single.

The Struts are Luke Spiller, Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and Gethin Davies (drums).

ARTIST TO WATCH: WENS | “Bones” @wensmusic #music

FullSizeRenderWhat’s up, music lovers?!

If you know me at all, you know how much I LOVE finding new artists to listen to. Thankfully, I also have great taste in TV shows that introduce me to a plethora of amazing new music every week!

Last week was no exception, as I learned about a new artist, WENS. Her track, “Bones,” was featured on an episode of Teen Wolf and it’s been stuck in my head ever since!

To the left is the track artwork featured on Apple Music and below is the audio for the song on YouTube. This song has a blend of R&B and almost alternative vocals on top of a hip-hop influenced track. It’s a creative fusion of incredible sounds and I can’t wait to hear more from this Los Angeles native.

You can find WENS on Twitter HERE and you can check out the song below:

NEW MUSIC: HARRY STYLES | ‘Sign of the Times’ Single


Ladies and gents . . . the long-awaited first single from the One Direction heartthrob, Harry Styles, has been released today!

Following in the footsteps of his band mates (most of them, anyway), Harry has released ‘ Sign of the Times’ on April 7, 2017. Strange to know that there are thousands of young girls losing their minds today because of it – my niece included! It’s interesting how different their musical styles are, isn’t it? Harry Styles with this 80’s rock style single, Niall Horan released an acoustic style ‘This Town,’ Louis Tomlinson released an electronic/dance vibe single ‘Just Hold On’ with Steve Aoki and we’re still waiting on Liam Payne to release something! We also saw Zayn Malik branch out on his own with a different style as well.

I also find it interesting that this is the one boy band who has seen ALL members branch out to do their own thing. Not even my beloved *NSYNC did that!

Anyway, Harry will be performing ‘Sign of the Times’ on NBC’s Saturday Night Live this Saturday, April 15. You can also check out his upcoming movie, Dunkirk, which will be in theaters this SUMMER, July 21, 2017.

So here is the audio “video” released on Harry’s VEVO channel:

Young Artist Jiovanny Lopez creates drawings inspired by THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR #thepurge

Young Artist Jiovanny Lopez shares his creativity through drawings inspired by THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR

The successful franchise that electrified an entire culture and earned over $200 million in worldwide box office, expands its film universe with The Purge: Election Year from Universal Pictures.

Young Mexican artist Jiovanny Lopez is a big fan of the film series The Purge. For this reason he made several drawings to support the release of The Purge: Election Year. Jiovanny began drawing 2 years ago when he broke his collar bone playing Futbol. He turned to art as a form of therapy. In recent months he has managed to meet his favorite celebrities like Chicharito, Thalia and Eugenio Derbez through his artistic talent.

In support of The Purge: Election Year Jiovanny completed two drawings; one that highlights the iconic masks of this new film, something that the series has become famous for; as well as an additional sketch of actor Frank Grillo who is the main actor in all three installments and one of his favorite actors. Jiovanny mentions that this series has always inspired his creativity due to the impactful visuals and the legendary masks which have very well become characters in itself.

Just in time for the release of The Purge: Election Year, we invite you to enjoy the following time lapse video and photos showing the process as Jiovanny Lopez completes the Lady Liberty mask as seen in the film.

The Purge: Election Year is in theaters this Fourth of July weekend.

ARTIST TO WATCH: @Pentatonix


For some people, a cappella music is an acquired taste.  For others, like myself, I can get lost in it.  As someone who spent middle school and high school in chorus and drama, I know how difficult it is to perform songs a cappella…especially if someone is off!  For Pentatonix, they make it seem so incredibly simple.  Their arrangements and covers of songs are so intricate and flawless.

They won the third season of The Sing-Off and have been working non-stop ever since.  With a chart topping Christmas album, That’s Christmas to Me and a handful of EP’s, we’re finally getting a full-length album with original songs!  Check out their first original song off the new album and also a cover of Where Are U Now below?

Hey there!!

So I have another suggestion for new music!!  If you’re a fan of The Voice (team Blake), you might have heard the name Ray Boudreaux.  If you’re not, and you haven’t…you should!!

Ray is a Louisiana native and has an incredibly soulful voice.  A true talent, in my opinion.  I always find it refreshing to come across an artist who is all about the music, and this one is no exception.

Please check him out and get ready to buy his single, “Even If I Tried” once it’s released! I’ve attached a YouTube video of him singing the song live, so enjoy it!

Artist to Watch: @MattMorris – “How Many Hours?”


Hey everyone!

So, admittedly, I’m one of those people who likes to steer clear of the news due to the immense amount of negativity that seems to be reported lately.  Especially the odd headlines that come out of my lovely state of Florida.  However, it’s hard to ignore the headlines about the amount of black lives that are taken by the hand of white cops.

Now, I’m a white hispanic (who doesn’t look hispanic in the slightest), and racism is one thing that I detest against ANY race.  Why should you be looked at differently because of the color of the skin you were born with?  The color of your skin should NOT determine the treatment you receive from others.  Your actions and behavior should be the deciding factor, and there are shitty people in EVERY race.

With that being said, as today marks the one year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, I heard a song that was released last night via Twitter and SoundCloud by one of my favorite artists, Matt Morris.  You may not be familiar with him (yet), but let me tell you why you should change that.  Matt Morris is mostly known as a producer and songwriter for many well-known artists.  He has also released solo projects on Justin Timberlake’s label, Tennman Records, as the two have been friends since their days on the Mickey Mouse Club.  Matt is honestly one of my favorite people to follow on Twitter because he’s not afraid to speak his mind on so many issues we face today.

So, first and foremost, head over to his Twitter page and hit the ‘Follow’ button, and you can thank me later!  Second, press the play button on the SoundCloud box below to hear “How Many Hours” and then tweet me to let me know what you think!  You can also check out his official site HERE, and Flock of Geese, when it’s completely up and running.  Don’t forget, you can also hear his solo music on iTunes/Apple Music HERE.  😄

It’s sad that a song like this had to be made, and Matt’s words are haunting, but his voice is truly beautiful.  I can’t wait to hear more from him. 🎵
