At 17, Larzz Principato isn’t afraid to shake things up. He’s a singer/songwriter/guitarist and also founder of Show Me the Skyline a Pop/Rock band hailing from New Fairfield, CT. Larzz says, “I think that my fans identify with my music because most of my songs are about relationships. I write about love, sex, breaking up and eventually being strong enough to try again.”
The music business often attempt to place artists into a box in order to market said artist to the public. But what happens when an artist emerges that cannot be bound by stereotypes or conventional logic? What happens when an artist is fully capable of singing, rapping and producing? What happens is she calls herself Black Madam and creates her own lane.
Unknown The Universal Element: Unknown or as he is simply called ”Un” has been dedicated to music since his youth.Today Unknown the Universal Element is looking to expand his music worldwide. He does not censor his music or altar his sound for anyone it is all about integrity.
Like the rest of life, music shouldn’t make you feel like you’re just punching the clock or spinning your wheels. It should be a journey. One in which the artist weaves together his or her experiences into impeccably performed songs that not only appeal to the ear with strong hooks and addictive melodies, but also resonate deeply on an emotional level. Tunes that have the power to directly move the listener to their very core, and perhaps even serve as reassuring beacons during difficult times. Such a skill is, of course, a rare gift for any artist, and one that takes most of them decades to attain, if at all. And yet it’s a skill that Zach Maxwell, still only in his mid twenties, already has—in abundance.
Springtime is a classical waltz composition for full orchestra. The theme imparts a happy uplifting mood.
I used a fair interplay between the strings and woodwind section, and between major and minor key sections to give it a rich and pleasant listening experience.
Hope you enjoy it!

“Stevie Ray Vaughn trapped in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out.” This is how one critic describes Kelly Richey, a blues-based rock virtuoso. Buoyed by critical praise and fiercely loyal fans, The Kelly Richey Band tours extensively bringing their electric live experience to venues throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. The attention centers around this Kentucky native’s guitar playing; Richey’s proficiency has earned her comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan while gaining her a place on stage with blues legends, Albert King and Lonnie Mack.
Are Dudley Saunders’ “underground” years finally over? After nearly two decades spent crafting haunting, “character-study” songs out of the spotlight, Dudley’s third album THE EMERGENCY LANE ended 2009 the surprise winner of the Outmusic Award for “Outstanding Album of the Year”.
A “life-on-the-edge” portrait-painter in the Tom Waits/Rickie Lee Jones mold, Dudley gives his story-songs an extra, post-modern twist: a lilting folk-jazz love song turns out to be laced with S&M sex (LOVE SONG FOR JEFFREY DAHMER), or a vivid portrait of New York street whores stops midway through for a decidedly unromantic re-write (THE RAIN ON 8th AVENUE). Nothing quite comes out straight in Dudley’s music.

He started work as a farm labourer aged fifteen, doing back-breakingly hard work on the mango and banana plantations of the Atherton Tablelands, a man’s work for a boy’s pay. He had to help support his family with these wages.
Marfa, Texas, is a pretty weird place. The modest-sized city—its population of 2,400 equals roughly half its altitude—was named for a character in a Russian novel, served as the set of James Dean’s last movie, and has since the late 1800s been known for the mysterious Marfa ghost lights, the unexplained glowing spheres that appear randomly in the night air east of the town. But Marfa is also home to another astonishing and out-of-the-ordinary phenomenon. One that’s simmering. Rumbling. Steadily building in intensity—and about to explode onto on unsuspecting music world like a blinding, white-hot, bird-flipping supernova. Its name? Satanic Punk International Conspiracy—or S.P.I.C. for short.
Inspired by tight reggae rhythm sections & thrashing punk bands, Three Hofstra University graduates birthed The Roast Beef Curtains. Taking a DIY approach, Andrew, John, & Mike evolved The RBC into the best live reggae, dub, & punk experience on Long Island.
