Megan Flechaus - Rockwired Radio Profiles #700

Since we're on the subject of crazy, talented seventeen-year olds, we're going to be turning our attention to singer songwriter MEGAN FLECHAUS. As a publication, we've made mention of the fact that rock n roll is no longer the music of the day and that goes double for anything that can be described as folky an introspective but that in no way takes anything away from FLECHAUS' hard hitting new album NEW. Rather than go it alone,with just an acoustic guitar FLECHAUS brings a full band tot eh proceedings, elevating her knowing and heartfelt songcraft to some pretty rocking heights.

Ray Goren - Rockwird Radio Profiles #699

Ah! A boy wonder who writes and plays every bloody instrument on his latest release! It sounds like a novelty these days but in the case of RAY GOREN, it's just the way that the seventeen year old whipper snapper does business. RAY is certainly no stranger to us here at ROCKWIRED. We practically heard this young man grow up before our very ears with a sound that spans gut bucket blues to all out rock n roll. The kid's musicality is a knowing one and has captured the ear of JIMI HENDRIX's legendary producer EDDIE KRAMER who continues to mentor this one-of-a-kind talent. One his newest  release FREE, GOREN widens his musical palette to include strong R&B and hip hop flourishes.

Rugby Road - Rockwired Radio Profiles #698

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of  a moment in time when rock n roll gave itself a grunge-y make under and took a rough and raw approach to getting people to bang their heads. If you're reading this we don't need to drop names or mention that these guys were largely from Seattle. At around the same time there was a jam band out East making there presence known in frat houses on the Villa Nova campus. Such an inconspicuous beginning for a band but didn't the CHILI PEPPERS start out the same way? Aside from gaining a massive following thanks to their electrifying live sets, RUGBY ROAD is a band that has achieved something spectacular. They have stuck it our for over 25 years now and their latest EP RUGBY ROAD III only goes to prove that these committed troubadours are all to eager to keep giving the people what they want - music that can get a crowd going.
