John Butler Trio’s new album “April Uprising” is set to release in Canada and the US on April 6th. This album features a new drummer and a new bassist. If you saw JBT perform live in the last few years you most definitely saw him being backed by Shannon Birchall (Bass) and Michael Barker (Drums). They were amazing. While changing 2 out of 3 members of a group could potentially change things up a lot, when it boils down to it what is the John Butler Trio really about? John Butler. The Guitar playing, song writing genius that when I saw him live I felt like crying because i simply did not want the show to end. Continue Reading »
This is about THAT SONG. You know the one. That song that when you hear it, your stomach sort of does a little flutter because you feel what they feel, and you know exactly what they’re going through. Well that’s the beauty of music. It speaks to everyone, and everyone can find a little meaning in any song. The best songs are not the top 40 club hits that you hear on the radio, they are the ones that are universally understandable. The songs that have lasting value are not the ones about sipping on gin and juice, partying all night or having promiscuous sex with the banginest girls in the club. The best songs aren’t about waking up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy and they definitely aren’t about making them good girls go bad. They are the ones that almost everyone can relate to because everyone has been that way. You find truth in the words of music, in the sound of music and in the way music makes you feel. It’s the songs like this that are timeless.

I want to talk about an amazing resource for all those self-taught and self motivated guitarists. www.justinguitar.com is an amazing website absolutely bursting at the seams with lessons on essentially anything and everything you could need when it comes to learning guitar.

If you really like indie pop you most likely know who The Format is. And if you know them, you know they made an announcement that the band was on hiatus in 2008. This was extremely depressing for me because I discovered The Format after this had already happened and any hope of seeing them perform live was lost. Then about a year after they entered my iTunes, and after a year of listening to their album “Dog Problems” over and over and over and over and over again, I made a discovery on the internet that made my year.
