North Jersey Notes: Driven Mad, Charetta, Atom Strange and More!

One of the bands I’ve been meaning to check out was one of my Facebook friends, Sam Walters, new band, Driven Mad. I received an invite to “Like” their page a few weeks back and just recently got a chance to give them a listen. Musically, they are bone-crushing, …

North Jersey Notes: The Atomic Bitchwax, Thanatotic Desire, Voodoo Terror Tribe and More!

Shoreworld: Taylor Tote – An Insatiable Musician On A Mission

Sometimes a name just keeps flashing onto the radar, surfacing time after time until it’s impossible to ignore. That’s pretty much how I would describe New Jersey native Taylor Tote. A savvy songstress that packs a stylistic punch, Tote hits you with the right-left combo of a tactician on a …

North Jersey Notes: Lion-Hearted, Scars Of Envy, Scarlet Carson and More!

North Jersey Notes: End Of An Era, Mikell’s Plot, Marc Rizzo and More!

One of the bands that I’ve featured in the past has really evolved and has even become a huge part of the Jersey music scene again. My buddy Zipperhead, from Zipperhead Productions, has even brought my attention to the band again, and I have to admit, for a band doing …

North Jersey Notes: Awjita, Steve Bello Band, Orbynot and More!

I recently received a private message on Facebook from Awjita guitarist and singer Alan Rigoletto asking me to check out his band. Now, sending me a private message on Facebook wasn’t the funny part, since bands I am not friends with do that all the time and it really might …

Shoreworld: Christine Martucci – Angels Of War

Christine Martucci has always been a fighter. From her “boots on the ground” time as a Sergeant in the Army right up to her musical and personal tribulations, she’s not one to cower or back down in the face of adversity. I have covered several of her performance and recording …
