CD Review – Se7en Sided “Life On Hold”

Se7en Sided are a stellar band from Edmonton AB. Their CD Life On Hold was released on September 20, 2011. At that time I was hospitalized and couldn’t even listen the CD until I was released in early October. The 12 song CD is a good progression from their first CD “The Silver Lining. The band had Randor Lin produce and engineer the CD and it was mastered by Charles Carvalho at Joao Carvalho Mastering. I really enjoy this bands’ music as it speaks the truth about how lives are lived – it’s honest music. Not a lot of bands do that – tell it like it is. Straight up music.

The Grey Matters Personal Year In Review Of 2011

2011 was a memorable year for events, festivals and hockey! This year has been full new and exciting things for me! I decided to take myself away a little more from the computer and start attending more events. I have talked to a lot of you on different social media sites and through email but there was never a personal face between us. 2011 was a year that I got to personally meet a lot of you. These are just a few of things that I got to do and some of the events and festivals that I have attended, worked with or organized. It really all started in January…

CD Review – Shoot The Image – Cranes In The City

Toronto band Shoot The Image release their debut CD which was produced by Morrissey guitarist Boz Boorer. This is one sweet CD that you will want to own! This CD is absolutely brilliant. Everything about it – from the performances by all band members, the quality of the production of every song and the mixing/mastering – is by far the best I’ve heard by any band in recent years. These songs are polished and shine like gems in the murky and vast world of Independent Music.
