(Mark Dean Interviews): KIM MITCHELL

Contributor's Note: Multi-platinum, JUNO Award winning Rock icon and Canadian Songwriters Hall Of Fame inductee Kim Mitchell announces the surprise release of his brand new single “Wishes” on June 26th and coincides with the highly anticipated release of his forthcoming new album, “The Big Fantasize” (El Mocambo Records), the first full-length recording since 2007’s “Ain’t Life Amazing”.  Where its predecessor was a fiery and fierce rock album, anchored by big riffs and bigger swagger, The Big Fantasize is a more dynamic and musically expansive effort that perfectly encapsulates Mitchell’s prowess as a pure and compelling songwriter. His countless signature anthems permanent fixtures of Canadiana 101, the three-time JUNO Award winner has sold over 1.5 Million recordings and toured en...

(Album Review) “The Search” by NF

Contributor's Note:  I’ve had a good chunk of time to listen through this album before putting this review together, but I will do my best to stay as subjective as I can and keep it brief. This is a track by track album review and grading for the newest album, The Search, from midwestern rapper NF.  Fans can find NF at the following locations: www.facebook.com/nfrealmusic www.nfrealmusic.com The Search In the opening track, we peel back the first layer into the psyche of NF dealing with his fame from his previous album and begin to get an idea of what the search really is. The one flaw for me in this song is there is no hook. This is pretty typical for an NF intro song so I get it, but I’m just a sucker sometimes for a catchy chorus to sing along to. Grade: 9/10   Leave Me Alone...

The Musician’s Tribune Vol. 10: Michael Kepko of Civil Youth on “How Warped Tour Stood Out Among All Festivals”

Editor's Note:  Out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, alternative duo Civil Youth received that golden opportunity to play at the Camden, New Jersey stop on the final Vans Warped Tour.  Civil Youth saw this as a huge life goal in the sense that the Vans Warped Tour has impacted them since the day they picked up the "Enema Of The State" album by Blink 182.  Civil Youth has made some noise with the release of their album "Conversations" along with sharing the stage with the likes of AWOLNATION, Phantogram, Twenty-One Pilots, and Capital Cities.  Civil Youth showcased that they a premiere live act to see with their crowd chanting, light-up drum solos, instrument swaps, and stage acrobatics.  They want to make sure that you're coming to see a show, not just a band performing live.  Special thanks...

Aaron Nordstrom, vocalist of Gemini Syndrome, Discusses How Music Saves Lives and Twenty-One Pilots with Madness To Creation!

Editor's Note:  This is a man that has one of the biggest hearts in rock music today, and is quietly becoming one of the more influential vocalists in today's rock music(based on what other musicians have told me), and this is what Gemini Syndrome brings to the table as a whole with their music.  They bring something that is introspective, soulful. and I would describe them as a thinking man's band when it comes to various topics, whether it's politics, spirituality, or philosophy.  Gemini Syndrome rolled through to play several one-off dates including a stop at Spicoli's Rockade in Waterloo, before playing Rock Fest up in Cadott, Wisconsin.  Aaron Nordstrom and I literally discussed just about anything in this interview.  Without further delay, I give you my conversation with Aaron No...
