Interviews

  • LYNAM - Half Way To Hell

    If you were ever to cross paths with Jacob Bunton, lead singer of Lynam and not know him, one glance at those steel-blue eyes and black spiked hair would send an alert to walk a little bit farther away--but that impression of him couldn’t be anything further from the truth.  This southern gentleman says ‘please, thank you, ma’am’ and that Alabama

  • DELTA DEEP - The Perfect Shade of Blue

    They say that every hue mixed together creates the color black. If each song was a tint, then we'd find that its artists, Delta Deep, blend together to create the perfect shade of cobalt blue; which is raw, primal and organically extracted from the Earth. Their perfect combination of rock, rhythm, soul and blues indelibly draws us into a picture

  • DEEP PURPLE - NOW What?! [Gold Edition]

    The progressive nature of Now What's opening track A Simple Song suggests this album is a return to form.  Interestingly, both of the first two tracks here make references to time.  Perhaps they are aware the sands are running out?  This is the British rock legends 19th studio album since offering up Shades of Deep Purple back in 1968.  The
