I Nodaway to Music! Chris Jobe

Maybe I'm just in a Summer mood, but it's a good mood, overall. Great music to be had, that is for sure. Especially when it comes to these guys known as Nodaway!

If you like Walk the Moon (WtM), you've found the band that needs to tour with them....a few months ago. When I read that it was for "fans of WtM" I was extremely skeptical, trust me. I enjoy WtM and think they can't be copied in the least, but Nodaway has hunted that unique sound and made it GREAT, again.

Just listen to "Lonely" and tell me it's not got that fun sound that is toomuch happy, in the best way. Please go 'LIKE' these folks called Nodaway and pay attention! They're liable to release some new amazingness that you may miss!

Feeling Fialta & It's Good!

Chill and poppy, these guys know how to!
Yes..more indie rock-ish pop harmony stuff! Fialta is one of those Californian bands that just hits the spot for me..especially these Summer days!

I think, this band is so great it'd be neat if you could go support their debut album on Bandcamp! Pay close attention to "Fiesta, My Love" as it has that summer catchiness and the sweet melodies that will be sure to make you sway.

So, go get your suit on, don't forget sunscreen, and support this talented Fialta group! I'm stoked because they're recording new music, and it'll be out "soon!"

The Great Scott (Harter)

New Nashville Sound and great at it!
In the mood for some solo artist choons?! Check out this guy's EP "Nobody Knows My Name" on my favorite

Scott Harter has that sound if you're looking for catchiness and alternative poppiness. But it's not the same ol' same ol' lyrics either. They're simple, and sometimes that makes an artist stand out..especially if they're honest and real.

There might be just a li'l of some Nashville "twang," so it might appear like country at times..but not to worry if you're not into that genre! His musical influences include Garth Brooks, so it does make some sense! Haha.. Just go and support OK? Solid stuff..!

With Wind in Sails You'll Go Far

It's that softer sound, with a folk-acoustic touch
When I want to share something softer, but still an indie sound, I can't help but blab about it the best way I know how. So, Wind In Sails is how you can..float along and listen to some greatness.

He is all about being genuine and real in his lyrics, and of course.. I love that. It's a softer folk-acoustic-rock sound that is just hit perfectly.

Look for the song "Heart to Focus" as the lyrics make quite a lot of sense and speak such wisdom, particularly in today's messed up society. Please go and 'Like' his facebook page and I'm sure he'll appreciate it.

It's Just About a Young Summer

And so, it was time for more. More classiness. More beauty on the inside and out. More fantastic earcandy! So yes, Young Summer is sweet.

While named Bobbie Allen, Young Summer is quite the moniker for this kind of pure magic. If you're looking for that indie/pop/electronic sound, but are tired of hearing guys work at have found the perfect woman. (Yes, women win, often. This one is no exception. Appropriate that i'm posting on Mother's Day? More of a fact that women just keep winning? My mom wins all the time.)

Singing with that real and raw emotion that i can't seem to get enough of, one can certainly feel it in every word sung. Something about the, realness, just resonates and hits me right in the heart. i Hope it does the same for you.

In talking about how she's on the rise and building a stronger fan base, Coachella in California certainly helped! Nono, she should have been on the lineup for Coachella, but she did support Odesza in a few songs! and that was a flawless performance that maybe (hopefully) made Zyra a little concerned?... Anyway, please, go to Young Summer's page and he'p her out! She's close to 10,000, but that's not near enough. Being on the radio more is a necessity and so many people are missing out!

i Wouldn't Mind Having These (The) Inlaws!

Lookin' all right!! 
Let me start with a few questions. It's ok, the first one should be easy: Have you heard of Steven Curtis Chapman? How about his son CALEB (no, not all caps, but his sons are in a band called Caleb? NO? Let me try again, how about Colony House (because that's what "Caleb" is called now)?!

If not, there's a young lady named Jillian Edwards. WHo married one of those sons (Will)! And, Caleb and Will and Jillian are in a band!! Yes, indeed. The news is that good.

Well, i thought it was time for a nice chill duo sound again, so there you have it. The Inlaws have quite the chill, folksy, and perfect sound. Please check 'em out and enjoy.

Personally, i like their song "Future" the best, but maybe that's because that's the first one i heard? They're all great though, please the support EP! And let's keep hoping for more tunes from such a great li'l group!

The Blue of Colors (is the Best Color)

Pensive rocking out is what he do's! via
Back to a little bit of the pop/rock side of good music, Blue of Colors does it all right. And i mean that, this guy do's it Right.

While using some sort of auto-tune, and slamming guitars and drums, it is the fantastic combination of it all that makes it work so flawlessly. i Get into fun lyrics like his because, it simply makes me smile. Just check out his song "Jenn's Song" and you'll see what i mean..(and maybe i relate to it too, soo, who cares!?)

Head over to the Blue of Colors facebook page and be sure and click that 'LIKE' button. Quite sure it is appreciated, and check out this guy's stellar project!

Sun Rai Requires Sunglasses, in a Good Way

Jazzy Talent via
Felt it was time for something quite different again. And "different" is good.. Most of the time. Sun Rai is no exception. From Australia, he's got a sound you wouldn't expect..i'm pretty sure!

Some jazz, some pop, some indie.. = All great! And did i mention he's from Australia? Pretty nifty, indeed.

i'm trying to get more international music in my library, so if you know of somebody, please submit away here! And Sun Rai? Yes, go follow and support away! He's got quite the deal on his new EP "April Skies."

Silver Trees in a Perfect Forest

Acoustic folk pop = straight killing it    via
Thought it was time for some softer tunes. You can stop looking for some with Silver Trees. He's got a new EP out now that's completely worth the purchase, but because you may doubt me....stay on that Noisetrade link and enjoyy!!...then..go buy the new EP Fighting the Rust.

He's definitely got some pop/folk-ish sounds, but they're flawless. It frustrates me that i've taken this long to post him on here, but now that Silver Trees has a place on this here li'l blog, i'm glad.

As you probably can see from the facebook page, he needs some serious 'LIKES!!' Please, please help and support such talent. Here's to hoping for that full-length album sometime "soon!"

The Hubbub of Rocketboys!

                        Rock on with some Rocketboys!                     via
Here's a nice rockish noise for you! What's more? The lyrics are terrific! Just check out the appropriately titled song "The Best!" The Rocketboys are a neat group of guys I saw open for The Almost and Relient K, and it was quite the show!

This band live sounds a whole lot like their recorded selves, and that is something to be treasured today. While it may be a little harder than some of the bands that i've posted on here, give these guys a listen too!

The Rocketboys' (formerly known as Homer Hiccolm & the Rocketboys) Facebook profile deserves some attention for sure, so please go help 'em out! i Know they'd appreciate it. And, rock a little with some good music!

My Name is (not) You, but Someday Soon..

So much classiness. via 
While i love linking you to free music, it's always good to remember that: it's crucial to buy this amazing music as well. Artists need to they can keep making music, of course!! So feed them, the poor incredible people. This is a band that must eat..because. If you don't think so, may just be..wrong.

Check out "Fortunate Ones" which is the first song i heard and immediately thought it was more than enjoyable. Once i decided to buy their full-length record, my heart just..was going to say "melts," but i feel that cliché won't do it justice, so my heart actually falls, cracks and shatters into tiny pieces in a happy and understanding heap when i hear "One Good Reason."

Why is this duo so far up on my list of best duo's ever? Maybe it's the harmonies and honest lyrics. Maybe it's the indie and folksy sounds. Maybe it's the..plain, sweet accented (she's from Scotland!) talentful (yes, here that's a word) little group whoM i got to meet while they were backing up Joshua Radin on his tour. Please, dive into My Name Is You, they need your support and are too incredible for words.
