Brian Walker is on a mission to spread good vibes.  He achieves this through many, many ways.  Of course our focus today will be to feel those vibes through his music and his band A Day Without Love.

Take a moment to spend some time as we hear about his early inspirations, how his poetry got turned in to the first songs, and how one of them, inspired by the ugliness of domestic violence that he helped stop, became the band...

We were introduced to Social Creatures back during Musikfest, and we stuck around to listen to them which made us late to our broadcast of the daily livestream because they were so good.  A true "Best of the Fest" for 2023 for sure.

Are you ready for some hip, cool, under-the-radar blues??  Be prepared to be blown away by the smooth guitar and killer vocals of Shane Guerrette.

Surrounded by music his whole life, he picked up the guitar at a young age, and enjoyed early success posting covers of popular songs in his style to YouTube.  However it never felt quite fulfilling and started to write and record his own music.  Which was also immediately succe...

We spend time to hear more about the latest album, how they met producer Chris Walla and how he inspired them to try new things, and the stories behind some...

Brush away the winter weather with the music of Easy Honey!  This incredible band out of Charleston, SC has the dual sound of fresh indie-rock balanced with familiar feel-good beachy vibes.  The duality in their music continues lyrically, with songs like "Steady In Vertigo" and even their name - since there's no such thing as "easy" honey.

We'll be joined by co-frontman/guitarist Selby Austin,...
