Crashing Atlas


Yessssssss – we’re featuring another kick ass band from our favorite backyard: Baltimore, MD. We’re perhaps a little more excited than usual to tell you about a band described as “early Paramore with an electronic shock” – an Electro Hard Pop-Rock outfit called Crashing Atlas. The group is a melting pot of artists […]

Rosi Golan


Rosi Golan is the electronic pop artist you don’t realize you’ve heard of – even if her name doesn’t roll familiar off your tongue, her music still rings intimately in your ears, and truth be told, we’re lucky that Rosi is still producing such memorable sounds.

Vaness Alegacy


It’s impossible to not appreciate artists like pop vocalist Vaness Alegacy, who understands that it’s truly about the journey, not just the destination on today’s music scene.

Laura Brehm


We interview a lot of artists with impressive followings on social media (it’s a big part of the industry nowadays), and we look forward to helping increase the views of these artist’s music videos online whenever we interview someone new…but talk about someone who doesn’t need or help! Our latest […]

We haven’t brought it up in a while, but many of the guys that started PEV have a background in pro wrestling – it goes without saying, that we enjoy our time in the gym (right?). So when the fun facts started rolling in about our latest feature, popular actor […]
