“I Got Nothing” by Scott Krokoff

With a rich and melodic sound drawn primarily from his love of 60s and 70s singer-songwriters, New Yorker Scott Krokoff weaves elements of folk-rock and country-pop into confessional and compelling Americana.

Krokoff’s college band, Equinox, played heavily throughout NYC in the 90s, releasing four albums before the different members settled into the workforce and “real life” took over. Krokoff, however, held his dream close and began pursuing a solo career. 2007’s A Better Life and 2012’s Realizations and Declarations, Vol. 1 both brimmed with lovely and tuneful revelations, which proselytized the art of taking risks in life.

Krokoff’s newest album Realizations and Declarations, Vol. 2 will be available on August 14, 2015.

“Crossing On A Bend” by Bourbon Street Beat

Inspired by 50s and 60s bands such as Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Band, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, as well as rock ’n roll legends like Elvis, Buddy Holly and Johnny Cash, Bourbon Street Beat is influenced in technique and style. Reinterpreted with an indie edge, their new singles “Crossing On A Bend” and b-sed “She’s His Woman” showcase their sound perfectly.

Iain Hammond (vocals and guitar), Joe Morrison-Hay (bass) and Andy Mackenzie (drums) met at university and formed the band in 2012. Their last EP Knuckles Of Brass earned them a strong following in Manchester.
