On first sight, Megg Farrell (frontwoman of the aptly titled Sweet Megg & The Wayfarers) may not appear to be a jazz singer. With her nose ring, considerable height, and youthful demeanor, she looks like she could just as easily be a member of a Bikini Kill cover band, rather than a purveyor of a more “old-timey” sound. Upon hearing Megg sing, however, one becomes easily swept into her aesthetics of banjos and rag-time, as frankly she has pipes like Billie Holiday.

A lot of the music that we listen to often comes from the singer/songwriter’s personal life story in hopes that we are able to relate to what they are trying to convey. A common theme in a lot of this type of music is pain from an experience or experiences they have dealt with in the past and are now using that in a musical way for many to hear. This is exactly what Sammi Rae Murciano has done with her song “Reflection” and new EP that will be out this fall. [Read more…] about Singer Sammi Rae Murciano Turns Hardship Into Beautiful Music

Benjamin Hey! has tons to bring to the table in the music industry. Good looks, great vocals and a ton of self awareness could make him the next big thing.

Maybe I am a bit biased (as I am from this area), but Long Island has a massive history of producing some of the biggest music legends over the past sixty years. Mariah Carey, Billy Joel and LL Cool J are just three that are on this incredible list of artists who have shaped how music is today. Now, we are looking for the next big thing to change the course of how the music industry will be in the future. One that could potentially make those sorts of waves are a band named The Little Red Men, whose updated take on Indie rock could easily place them into the music stratosphere in a very short period of time.

It’s always good to be a triple-threat (or even a quadruple-threat) in any sort of field, especially the music industry, and finding new talent who posses three or four of these attributes can be a big deal that can lead to a massive career down the line. This is the hope for New York based poet, rapper, singer and writer Bruce Pandolfo, who goes by the name AllOne. With his fresh and unique take on how music is written, produced and brought out to the public, he does something that not many other artists today do which will hopefully translate to him being the next biggest thing in music.
