(Mental Health Conversations): Madness To Creation Podcast Ep. 13: LIV STRANGE

Contributor's Note:  Los Angeles alternative-pop artist Liv Strange converses with Madness To Creation on the 13th episode via Spotify, JioSaavn, YouTube, Podchaser, Podcast Addict, Spreaker and Soundcloud.  In this episode, Liv talks about living life in Los Angeles and how she's been struggling with the "quarantine life" with the Covid-19 pandemic.  Liv is such an advocate for mental health awareness and practicing self-love and self-care.  Recently, she released a cover of "People Are Strange" by The Doors and she discusses how we can all find beauty in the grotesque and the "ugly".  That led to a discussion of the song "Lies of the Beautiful People" by Sixx AM, and this was just an incredible conversation.  Fans can find Liv Strange at the following locations: www.facebook.com/l...

(EP Review) “Prey For Me” by THE COLD YEAR

In 2017, we introduced our readers to a bastard-jazz trio out of Salt Lake City, Utah called THE COLD YEAR with their debut EP entitled "Praise The Goat".  Now, The Cold Year are becoming seasoned veterans in their craft with their upcoming follow-up release entitled "Prey For Me". The Cold Year is composed of Matthew Skaggs on vocals/guitar, Mitch Shepherd on bass, and Josh Cannon on drums.  Based on their eclectic arrangements, they take elements from The Doors, Tom Waits, jazz, and even a touch of Thrice(Beggars album era of Thrice), and throw in some irreverence and create a concoction that balances darkness and lightheartedness in the same token. "Prey For Me" starts off with "Exordium".  If you look up in Webster's Dictionary", exordium means, "beginning or commencement", I wou...

(EP Review) “Demo” by TELEVISION SKIES

Back in December of 2018, New York indie-pop band Television Skies released a four song EP entitled "Demo" via Bandcamp.  Since then, they have released a lyric video for "Only For A Moment" via their Facebook page and their YouTube channel.  Through these releases, the duo has a world of potential ahead of them. The band out of Ulster County, New York is composed of members Ihor Shuhan on vocals/guitars and Paul Maczaj on drums.  These two left a previous band called The Lighthouse in 2014 and formed Television Skies in 2016.  They cite The Doors, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Who as a few of their primary influences in their music.  The band has also played various gigs in New York City. Upon listening to their music, Television Skies sounds like that chill band that one would tur...

Scott Stapp: Live and Unplugged Tears Down Minneapolis!

It was a night of redemption, incredible music, and living proof that if you keep persevering in life, you can accomplish amazing things in your life.  Scott Stapp, who is known as the vocalist for Creed, is currently on his "Live and Unplugged" Tour with special guests Art Of Dying and Willett to help commemorate the groundbreaking "My Own Prison" album, which was released in 1997.  It is very difficult to believe that "My Own Prison" has been out in stores for 20 years as of this year.  Jeremy of Willett was first to take the stage at The Cabooze in Minneapolis. It was a night of stripped down, organic music.  Willett brought inspirational messages of God, hope, and faith to the crowd.  I knew that this was going to be a unique night of music when a significant part of this night at The...
