In Their Words: "Patrick really knows how to find the essence of a song. His cover is a full on Springsteen-banger complete with piano and bells. It's an honor to have such a talented artist cover our song, and it's all the more satisfying given that he is a friend and he has offered nothing but love and support to Free Energy from the start. He is an exceptional young man! Here's to Patrick Stickles!" -- Free Energy's Paul Sprangers.
In Their Words: "'Close and Closer' is about human interactions -- about all of the invisible connections between us and how we impact people and never know it ... and also about the desire to be so close to someone that you almost want to become a part of them." -- Singer Rachel Dannefer
According to FAME Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange, if Harmonious Wail “doesn't set your toe to tapping and put a smile on your face, you should probably get medication." With smoldering vocals laced in with jazzy mandolin and guitar lines reminiscent of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli, and an infectious blend of continental jazz, swing, gypsy music, and vocal melodies, Harmonious Wail dares its audiences to describe it in words. Winners of multiple MAMA awards including Best Jazz CD, Best Ensemble Vocalists of the Year, Favorite Jazz Band, Best World Artist, Best World Song, and Best Instrumentalist, Harmonious Wail has caught numerous listeners by total surprise during its more than 20-year history.
In Their Words: "Our song 'Land of Gathering' is influenced by childhood nostalgia and the rediscovery of metaphysical spaces only reached through an appreciation for the imagination." -- Singer Matthew Cook.

It was almost a clean-sweep this morning for the synthesizer heavy "(Keep Feeling) Fascination") by the Human League. Everybody was in the mood for a little 80s fun!

Here's a song that inspired high-schoolers to act like 12-year-olds back in the late 1970's. The lyric "when you're in love with a beautiful woman, it's hard," was just so darn hilarious!!
Dr. Hook had a lot of hits in the...
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club?
This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a...
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time. But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton.
This song made...
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him!
Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...
