It’s not often that a debut album not only introduces us to a fab new emerging vocal and songwriting talent, but also the crackling, steel guitar vibes of two bands that should have been on our radar long before. So while we’re immersing in the sensual/seductive yet pl...

In 2016, almost a quarter century after The Sighs ruled the summer of ’92 with their rambunctious smash “Think About Soul” and toured with The Gin Blossoms and Spin Doctors, the New England power pop greats reunited and released a new album, Wait on Another Day. While...

With his dreamy and soulful, easy grooving and uber-romantic new single “Lullaby,” award winning alt-pop/rock/Americana singer songwriter TJ Doyle marks ten years as a powerful, socially conscious force in indie music.

Driven by his cool, contemporary twist on that endu...

The budding indie success of husband and wife Americana duo Shaun and Rachel Stief – aka The Stifftones - gives hope to songwriters and musicians whose dreams begin with raw performances at the local open mic. The two met in 2011 on that scene in and around their homet...

Forty- two years after Meat Loaf’s epic, multi-platinum global smash Bat out of Hell put Cleveland International Records in our collective musical consciousness, the legendary indie label is back in business. While their relaunch started with a CD and LP release of its...
