Artist: Patrick Stickles
Hails From: Glen Rock, N.J.
Song: 'Hey Tonight (Free Energy Cover)'
Album: (Single)
Sounds Like: Titus Andronicus, Bruce Springsteen

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.

Free Download: Harmonious Wail

Harmonious Wail is the next artist in line for Mad City Sessions with a free show on April 25th @ 6:00pm at Overture Center.

Here's a sample of his work. "Lagavulin Bay"



Download here

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.

Free download: Mayer Hawthorne
Remember Mayer Hawthorne's catchy song "The Walk" that Triple M introduced you to in 2012?

Well the Detroit singer/producer has a new album coming out this summer, and he's giving us a preview with the new song "Designer Drug."
The album, which so far doesn't have a title, is expected to sound much different, according to Hawthorne. For one thing, this is the firs time he hasn't done the whole thing by himself.

Check out the song, and if you like it, you can download it for FREE here.
