“Dark Hotel” by K. S. Rhoads

Nashville says: “Rhoads has the perfectionism and musicianship of Roger Waters, as well as a similar political chip on his shoulder, making him a force to be reckoned with.” Rhoads has toured with the likes of Marc Broussard, Ari Hest, Butterfly Boucher, Ray Lamontagne, Guster, and Brett Dennen. In addition, he often plays piano for recording artist Erin McCarley. He is currently recording his sophomore album.

K.S. Rhoads has toured and recorded with fellow Nashville musicians for a project called Ten Out of Tenn. Along with the other artists in Ten Out Of Tenn, he is the subject of the Any Day Now documentary. The film was runner-up in the Nashville Film Festival.

This video is Rhoads’ “Dark Hotel” from his 2008 album Dead Language.

“Gather Round” by Graham Czach


The Chicago Music Award Winner’s Solo Debut Features Drummer Kris Myers (Umphrey’s McGee), Keyboardist Matt Nelson (Lupe Fiasco, Matthew Santos) and Guitarist Chris Siebold (Howard Levy, Kick The Cat)—Plus Brilliant Artwork By Legendary Album Artist Jeff Jordan (The Mars Volta). ~ Album art and artist introduction provided by Chrissy Sutphin of LUCK Media & Marketing, Inc.

After digging a little deeper into Czach’s debut, Lucid, I must give praise to his extensive use of classical instrumentation and his fervent voicing of pain, enlightenment, controversy, and benevolent behavior. His range of style is also worth noting. For example, “True Love” is gentle, orchestral, and wraithlike while “Nightmare” brings hard guitar and percussion into the mix. “Gather Round” pays tribute to John Lennon and adopts the familiar chorus of “Across The Universe.” What I love about this song is the choir that joins him about half way through.
