by

The room at the popular Orlando music venue, The Social, filled up quickly as the doors opened and the house lights dimmed. After the opening band finished their last song and exited stage left, Baltimore’s Have Mercy entered. They did one last 30-second soundcheck as the crowd crammed into the small space in front of the stage to witness Have Mercy deliver a raw, intimate, and passion-driven set.

Spreading Hope with To Write Love On Her Arms

by

When you think of Warped Tour or festivals in general, your mind automatically thinks of the bands (and if you’re like me, the fashion, too), but only a handful of people actually know that there are many organizations that support the tour and/or festival that you’re stoked to go to. One of my favorite non-profit organizations has been around since I was a teenager and definitely made a huge impact on my life growing up and to this day. If you’ve never heard of To Write Love On Her Arms, allow me to introduce you.

Stealing The Spotlight: An Interview with The Stolen

by

I’ll have to admit: when I first discovered the up-and-coming band The Stolen, I found myself blasting their eclectic sound at max in my car. The pop-punk Jersey boys have a sound that perfectly combines Cliché faves The Maine and The 1975 with a twist of ‘90s rock and modern pop, all mixed into four incredibly talented musicians. The Stolen dropped their latest EP I’m So Dead in April along with a aesthetically pleasing music video for one of the five songs off the EP, “Can’t Get Enough.” Here, frontman Dom Cuce filled us in on who The Stolen is, their spring tour, and songwriting.

Kelsy Karter Chats Her EP ‘Kiss The Boys’ and Being a Rebel

by

She’s a born storyteller who believes in making your strangeness your strength. When asked how to describe herself in one word, she calls herself a rebel. This up-and-coming, switchblade-carrying, blue-eyed soul singer Kelsy Karter is about to rock and roll herself to the top of the charts in no time. After moving from Australia to Los Angeles as a teenager to pursue her music, Karter dropped an EP called Kiss The Boys, along with two music videos for her songs “Crystal Blues” and of course, “Kiss The Boys.” Growing up, Karter considered herself weird, yet mischievous and bold, and now she sees herself as an outsider in today’s music industry. But being on the outside has its perks. Karter manages herself and has the freedom to own her specific sound. Here, we chatted with the soul singer and found out a little bit more about her and her music.
