EndAnd


We’ve seen them before (though not enough); musical communities that use the act of sharing music as a form of therapy – bouncing ideas, rhythms, lyrics off one another in a process that typically equals out to better, more heartfelt music. We’re noticing a musical collective forming in Brooklyn, New […]

FallsStart


Keeping up with the travels and influences of punk rock trio FallsStart is no simple task – their roots literally span the globe. Of course, we were excited to learn that lead singer Davey Leatherwood calls the streets of Baltimore home, but that’s just the beginning – the band actually […]

Radio Fallout


Straight out of Austin, Texas (so you know it’s good), we bring you Radio Fallout, a 3-piece alternative pop outfit with a live show that we need to catch. Just listen to the words of guitarist and lead vocalist, Caleb Scates: “We don’t believe in playing our songs live like […]

Sonnet Cottage


Folk band Sonnet Cottage (Kent Heckaman and sisters Rachel & Torey Russell) are considerably fresh to the scene, having just formed in 2010. But that doesn’t mean the trio (driven by classical, folk and jazz influences) hasn’t already found their refined sound; sample a few songs from their first record, “Another Time”, […]

Martha’s Trouble


The husband and wife duo of Rob and Jen Slocumb may call Auburn, Alabama home right now, but it was in Houston, Texas where some real magic took place – over a cup of coffee at a local cafe, the duo realized that not only could they produce some fantastic […]

Mike Musick


His name is already a noticeable indicator that this singer/songwriter knows a thing or two about being on the live stage, but Mike Musick’s skill obviously doesn’t come from a last name. His philosophy on music is what really makes him stand out – he says, “I think that being […]

Riversyde


What happens when you take the backdrop of Austin, Texas, some killer guitar solos, a side of body gripping rhythm and vocals reminiscent of 90’s alternative rock (our favorite ingredient)? Clearly, you’d end up with Riversyde, one of the most promising alternative acts in the heart of Texas; a 4-piece […]

mbilly


M. William Helfrich, the man behind the mbilly music project, draws so much influence from one of PEV’s favorite places; a sweet little western state called Oregon. His style fits the aura of the land pretty perfectly (whichever side of it you’re on), as heard on his debut record, “Mister […]

Erik Brandt


Erik Brandt, the ringleader of the award-winning Urban Hillbilly Quartet (and frequent White House invitee) knows why a different breed of artist exists in the north – Brandt himself a resident of the Twin Cities. He provided us his thesis during our XXQ’s: “Everyone who doesn’t live in the North […]
