Rock ‘n’ Roll Singer-Songwriter Johnny Gwynn

Johnny Gwynn Guitar/Vocals/Piano

It is past two in the morning. My back hurts. I am exploring the website of this young singer-songwriter by the name of Johnny Gwynn. His last name is striking. It sounds Welsh. He is from Nashville(originally from Boston), the home of great American music.  So I cranked up the volume of Midnight Oil with my Apple in-ear headphones. The energy blew me away. I wanted to jump up and down if not for my back pain. Gwynn has a good vocal range and a guitar wizardry that’s warm and entertaining. There are several songs in his website. Midnight Oil , Calixta, Let Your Love Take Off My Edge and Barcelona(there are more). The latter is a funky guitar driven song that describes his relationship with a ‘mischievous Spanish girl.”

It looks like he is still in the process of developing his website. Hopefully his Bio gets updated or else he will remain mysterious. He has performed in front of the audience based on the ‘bio pics.’

Some of these songs are also available in his bandcamp album called A​-​Sides​-​EP released in 2010.

Music News From: The Sharp Things, Matthew Perryman Jones and Steve Moakler

The Sharp Things – Back Down The Rabbit Hole [Official Music Video]

The band that brought us the rich and melodic Green is Good has released another video called Back Down the Rabbit Hole. The band is known for its awesome use of orchestral instruments and sweeping melodic lines that fly in the great expanse of the conscious and  subconscious. The soaring melodies simply lift your mood. The arrangement sends your imagination traveling unknown galaxies of the mind.

Back Down the Rabbit Hole, their official video is the last track off Green is Good. It is also a song that sounds different from the rest due to its relative sound to pop electronica: with hooks that could have come from KC and the Sunshine Band. I love it! Check it out and also buy their new album Green is Good. Yes it is good, and healthy!

“Stones From The Riverbed” | Matthew Perryman Jones

I have become really possessive with my Land of the Living album by Matthew Perryman Jones. It is an album with rich sounds and haunting melodies wrapped around his voice. Yes it is a voice that sounds like a cross between Bono of U2 and Ian McCulloch of Echo and the Bunnymen. I have to admit I have my own favorite tracks off the album : O Theo and Sleeping with a Stranger. But it is still great to get a video every now and then from this fascinating artist.

Spring Tour Dates Announced‏ from Steve Moakler

Here is a little news from this cool singer/songwriter:

It’s good to be sitting here writing to you. I know that the percentage of people who will receive this message will be a fair amount larger than the amount of people who will read it. I’m not sweatin’ that though… Instead, I’m sincerely thankful that you have chosen to taken the time to care. You are the reason that we sent this and I’m glad we’re in touch.Over the next couple of months, I’m gonna be back on the road! For the large majority of shows, I’ll be headlining (playing last) for the first time in many places. I want to thank those of you who have supported me by repeatedly coming out to see me as an opening act over the last couple years. We’re thrilled to finally have the chance to play more songs and to have more time to sing and dance with you.  I hope that we’re coming to a room near you so you can be a part of our memories.Steve
