New Music Moday


Artist: Jeff Bernstein
Song: Forgotten Saints

Genre: Soundtrack / Instrumental
Tumult, temper, and that certain intensity that touches great depth in your visual soul. Jeff Bernstein builds passion and motion, landscapes and lore, peaks of cinematic tang that propel the enthusiast into realms of perfection.

Single: Something More
Genre: Pop Rock
Indie band from Charleston WV After touring almost nonstop for the past ten years, West Virginia’s TIME AND DISTANCE have earned a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in today’s scene. The band began in 2003 as the solo-acoustic project of vocalist / guitarist Greg McGowan, and is now rounded out by bassist / vocalist Adrian Crowder, & drummer Chris Thompson. They have a sound which is deeply rooted in 90’s rock and early 00’s pop-punk, with a tendency for sweet vocal harmonies, clever lyrics, and just enough musical prowess to separate themselves from the rest of the pack of “three chords / songs about girls” which has overtaken the genre in recent years.




Indie band: White Horses
Single: St Lucian Skies

Genre: Pop Rock
Uk band. The albums “Soul on Fire” and “Down to the Water” have been recorded at Platform Studios, Reading, Berkshire, produced by Damon Sawyer and Stuart Harris for Storm Chaser Productions.  The “Down to the Water” album features Mick Moody on slide guitar, Max Brittain on archtop guitar, Stuart Dixon in Electric 6 string, Pauly Zarb on flute and penny whistle, Hanna Piranha on Violin, Bob Haddrell on Nord organ and grand piano, Liam Tyillier on 5 string Bass, Damon Sawyer in drums, Fergus Gerrand on percusssion, Julian Hinton String and Orchestral arrangements, Matt Platt and Andy Ross on Piano, Andrew and Imogen Sentinella provided backing vocals for “The Bells Rang Out”. I played Acoustic and Electric guitar including the 12 string Rickenbacker on “On my Way Now” and 4 string Bass.



Artist: Pushing The Sun
Single: Tragic love

Genre: Rock
Indie band from San Fransisco California.
Bringing light to your life with fire in their hands- Guitarist Billy Connally launched Pushing the Sun in 2012. After his successful instrumental album release, The Silent Canvas on Steve Vai’s Digital Nations label, Connally was ready to return to his roots — a rock band with a charismatic lead vocalist. Releasing a 3 song ep and a music video for their song Tragic Love, the band has rapidly gained momentum playing a ton of gigs in Northern California including an opening slot for Rockstar Uproar when it came to the Shoreline Amphitheater.
