Real life? Kesha Releases?

Let's just pause for a second.

I'm pretty sure they are about ten posts or more on here that just talk about how lucky I feel and how much I'm thankful for everything I've gotten to achieve, everyone I've been able to meet and interview but life just got a little crazier. Over the past month or so I've recieved press releases/information about some of the biggest names in the game like Ke$ha, Justin Bieber himself and Usher.

Oh life? I'm in love with you! Don't fear though I'm going to stay just as alternative as well but who wouldn't take these opportunities?

They're the party in your bedroom.

If you've been reading this blog for a while slash my work on Music Remedy by now I'm sure you're well aware of who Cash Cash is. It's been a while since the boys have strolled through the area (can't believe it's been the better part of a year since our last interview!) but JP and the boys always make for a great show and are a great group to talk to!
They flew back onto my radar about a month ago where I saw they were opening on the latest Stereo Skyline headlining tour and since then I've heard all about everything from their "Forever Young" cover to their latest single to drop featuring Lacey Schwimmer and Spouse. Check out the new EPK the boys just released and believe me next time they come through I'll definitely bring a new interview to you!

Thanks for always being awesome. If it weren't you for the readers, I'd never be doing this today!

Ms. busy bee here reporting some new interviews for you! This year/summer has actually been some of my most productive times and that means new interviews pretty much every day and the latest three? Hot Chelle Rae, The Audition and There for Tomorrow!

The band jumped onto Warped tour just a few days after I did my press at the tour but lucky for me I had the opportunity to spend some time with the band at Six Flags just a month later! I did the typical interview routine with RK and Nash which can be seen here but after the interview, I hit the roller coasters with the boys for the rest of the day leading up to their show! Catch the boys on the road with Parachute this fall and in the small clubs when you can. With the backing of Jive Records and their irrestible live shows, the boys are sure to be playing the bigger stages soon!

I may be one of the biggest crusaders for the Chicago music scene there is just because I grew up there but one of my personal favorites from that scene is the pop punk quartet The Audition! I recently got the chance to sit down with the boy who provides lead vocals Danny Stevens where we talked about everything from what he may have been doing if he wasn't in the band to how they formed and it's all right here!Finally but definitely not least, over the last few months Music Remedy/me has had the chance to steadily stay in the loop with several bands including Hey Monday, A Rocket To The Moon and Anarbor but the most recent interview we've done is this next group There for Tomorrow. Since April, we've been getting the low down with the band and just did our third interview with the boys but for now read our introduction with Maika for everything There for Tomorrow that just got posted here! We just caught up with the boys again two days ago so be sure to keep your eye out on the site and thanks for always coming back for more. I would be nowhere with out starting this blog and I'm even jumping to the next step of doing some video interviews soon along with Music Remedy so maybe this whole work at a restaurant all day, every day doesn't have to continue much longer :)

New VFFA Acoustic EP.

Hey folks!
So like I said in the past I've decided to make this something a little bit different then it was in the past and this is exactly the kind of thing I want to have on it. I interviewed this next band back in February and their interview can be found on the website I work for here but the reason for writing about them today?
Well they've been little busy bees and have put together a FREE downloadable acoustic EP and even though I'm just listening to the first song on it today it brings me back to the roots of what I listened to all the time when I was younger. It kind of reminds me of a more mature Just Left sounding record (who VFFA's producer Ace Enders also worked with) and definitely is something I'd recommend to you readers. Also, catch the boys doing some headlining dates along with some touring with Backseat Goodbye and Jonas In Color this next month and catch the video below promoting the EP.

(P.S. I'm pretty sure Nick may be one of the most adorable boys ever.Ssh, don't tell him!)

Latest Interviews up with Stereo Skyline & Anarbor!

Two new interviews that I did just went live on Music Remedy and I hope you check them out! First up is one with Stereo Skyline that I did at Bamboozle Roadshow with the full band (including Clayton!) where we talked about everything from how they met Clayton to their plans for the future. They had a busy summer releasing their first full length record and had the Stuck On Repeat headlining tour! They are four polite adorable boys who made for a great interview which you can find here!

And next up is a follow up interview with Anarbor who we talked to back during the Bout Damn Tour in April! Even though it had only been a few months, plenty has happened for the boys including touring both the UK and Japan and dropping their first full length record even though they have been playing together since about 2003. The four piece have never changed their line up, have been together since middle school and always give a good interview! Read it here and check out all their videos on the Hopeless Records youtube channel as they won't let embeds. I tried promise!

A little update..

So I'm trying something new with this blog. I took the time to read through it and there's definitely a little bit of natural progression. I first started it over a year and a half ago and it's crazy to go back through some of the entries, see who used to be on my dream list and now I've interviewed them etcetera. The excitement I had in the beginning which believe me is still there once again etcetera. So I'm changing it up and I'm making this my personal blog about my adventures, random pictures I take through out of everything including the one I put on this post. I'll be doing video updates, everything really. Like today, I'm going to do a write up through music videos of some milestones through it all!
Once again the point of me doing this is because Music Remedy is purely the interviews really and sometimes some really cool stuff happens or I find a band I really like from around here locally that maybe isn't the best fit for Remedy so hope you stick around!
So keep on coming back to read all about my adventures through all of this, follow, love, please :) xo

Never Shout Never on Jimmy Fallon tonight!

Back in April, I got the chance to do an interview with Christofer Drew/Never Shout Never where I met a young but very intelligent soul who gave along with his bandmates several acoustic performances through out along with sharing a million little anecdotes and instantly I knew I had a new favorite interview.
I got the chance to talk to him briefly again at Warped tour this summer which will be coming to you soon! It's a little sound byte about his inspiration for making "Harmony" which is his latest release just dropping a week or so ago. It's folky and fabulous and definitely something I hope to be able to talk to him about again in the future.
But for now, to the point of this post! I just got an alert that nineteen year old Drew will be playing with his band on Jimmy Fallon tonight so if you need a little distraction from the hurricane you'll know where to look.

Catch this great musician again on a headlining tour this fall with The Maine, Ace Enders and Carter Hulsey which is where hopefully I'll get another chance to speak to him!
