(Mental Health Breakthroughs): MARTINA ARMOUR + “What It Feels Like” EP Review

Editor's Note:  When legendary drummer Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac gives you his seal of approval on your rendition of their song "Storms", you're a special artist.  This is exactly Martina Armour. This Los Angeles folk/pop singer-songwriter with Swedish roots reached out to us for a premiere.  Sadly, the editor wasn't able to deliver as he was going through some mental health struggles, but thankfully he's back in the saddle, and ready to deliver some content once again!  While our slogan is #YouFreakingMatter, I need to take that to heart as well.  Sometimes, we feel sad and inadequate, and not worthy of anything.  I regrouped, feel completely refreshed and here I have an exclusive interview with this incredible artist named Martina Armour and "What It Feels Like" EP Review for you f...

We Nerd Out Vol. 99: The 10 Most Expensive Music Albums Ever Made!

Many people are not aware of how much it really takes to make a music song that will eventually become hit one day. What we see is how much money music stars make and how glamorous their lives are. Behind all that success there are serious numbers of dollars invested in music projects. So, that is why there are rules about copyrights because there are a lot of money invested in music.   When somebody steals tunes, they are not only insulting the music artist, but they are also, in some way, stealing money. On the other hand, imagine investing tons of money and get absolutely nothing in return because no one can guarantee success. However you should invest in getting a good set of headphones, audio reviews from AudioStance is the perfect place to check for comprehensive and objective...

Dereak, Maddox, and Kenny of MESSER Converses with Madness To Creation on the Comeback Story of Scott Stapp and Mental Health Awareness!

Editor's Note:  On a personal note, Messer is very quickly becoming one of my favorite bands to listen to because their songs are so positive and uplifting, and they just flat out rock.  The cool thing about this band is that when they have a day off they would rather find a stage and play, and that's exactly what they did as they invited a few local Iowa bands to play and play in front of some Iowa folk at a dive bar called Spicoli's in Waterloo, Iowa.  Quick question for Spicoli's, why did you get rid of most of your games?!?!  Anyways, Messer has been flying on the charts with their hit rock single "Simple Man" and just coming across amazing opportunities that the band can only manage to get.  Messer sat down with Madness To Creation inside their RV and discussed a lot of cool things su...
