Robal Johnson

That was really fucking catchy and I am quite impressed. You clearly have some talent and your vocals are pretty damn good. The lyrics are fun and the hook is tight. The production has a chill groove and I am glad to hear a strong break for the chorus. Keep it up, you have a knack for pop. Definitely want to hear more, so please feel free to submit future recordings along this vein. Keep practicing and get out there and perform as soon as it is safe. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

R.I.P Everyone by C-Diffy

Robal Johnson

This is really, really good. Killer flow, tight lyrics, strong message. I would love to hear more about you, your craft, your history, your goals, and where you are at so far. I can't seem to find any info online, which is a mistake. Make it easy to search and discover. If not, people will move on quickly. You need a decent website, fb presence, etc, if you are serious. Shoot me a message with some more info when you get a minute. This track hit me like a ton of bricks. Cheers.

A lovely track and a lovely voice. Well produced with a catchy beat and fun hook. Your vocals are impressive with a good range. I don't see too many views, but if you are just starting out that doesn't mean much. I would say get out there and perform, but obviously that is not happening any time soon. Though when it does, you must. Perform, perform, perform, and practice, practice, practice. Industry folks may discover your talent through a shared video, but no one will be impressed if you can't perform live or you have not built a small fanbase organically. The majors are not interested in artist development, they want to find something already on the way up and help it catch fire. So when we are back to normal I hope you focus all of your energy on getting out there and playing live, starting in local clubs and slowly branching out to regional dates and beyond. If this is your passion, find a crew, build a team, and make creative friends. I will pass this along to some influencers. Best of luck and thank you for sharing. Cheers.

I Hope I Make It by Wilson Getchell (from the band Thirsty Curses)

Robal Johnson

Lovely tune. Emotional lyrics, Poetic groove. Fun riff. You have a welcoming voice with a friendly twang and clearly you are a good writer. This would be fun to see in a cafe and it would be interesting to hear it with a full band. Looks like you are expressing yourself with a solo record, possibly on a break from the band. Not sure how I could help, as this is more of an acoustic demo than a polished song for radio/streaming, but I am definitely interested in hearing more when your record is ready. Keep up the grind and keep creating your art. Thank you for sharing.

Trouble Maker by Henry Alexander

Robal Johnson

This is cool. I dig the vintage sound. It is like a cross between Duran Duran and the Talking Heads. The vocals are tight and the groove is infectious. The only thing I would suggest is to keep the chorus a bit more melodic. I like the choppy style you are going for, but it lacks an acceleration that I kept waiting for to really make it pop off. Keep creating and keep experimenting and please feel free to send me the next tune you come up with. I definitely hear talent and I hope you are just getting warmed up. Best of luck and hope to hear more soon. Thank you for sharing your art with me. Cheers.

This is catchy as hell. Great vox, tight beats, rad guitars. I think you two have some chemistry and I look forward to hearing more from you. It seems like you two are just getting started together, so this is an impressive first round. I hope you are booking gigs and practicing like crazy. Get out there and perform, perform, perform. Build an organic buzz in LA and the industry will follow. I can definitely see this getting some tv/film placement if put in the right hands. I will pass the track along to some A&R friends at labels and pubs. Please feel free to submit another track when you are ready. Holler any time if you need some merch. Good luck and stay in touch. Keep crushin.

Scarecrow by The Tale

Robal Johnson

You guys shred! Killer riffs, great vox, and catchy hook. It is nice to see that punk fucking rock is still alive and kicking... ass. Obviously you guys know the drill: gig, tour, merch, repeat. But I also hope that you are focusing on college radio, which is still a thing, and underground podcasts in every city in the country. If you have not already, I would put together an EPK of the new EP and blast it out to those kinds of outlets. There are a ton of cool indie labels that would love to put this out for you and help promote it locally. Do your research, find the new zines and pods that reflect this kind of music and send some emails. Remember, nobody wants a CD or a download anymore, so stick to links. If you want to get noticed, follow up with a cool swag bag of cheap merch. If you need help with that, give me a shout. I always like working with badass bands. My company is called PUMP Merch. Good luck and keep crushin!

Sunshower by The Tale

Robal Johnson

That was really fun! Killer ska punk jam with an infectious groove and a catchy hook. I listened to this twice with the volume cranked all the way up. This is a good tune that I can only imagine is a blast to see live. If I were you, I would put together a press kit (EPK) to blast out to college radio all over the country to see if you can book some college gigs. Try to stand out from the rest of the submissions - send a t-shirt or some cool swag instead of a CD and share links of your music. Keep it simple, but blast away. Research music blogs that you think would embrace music like yours and submit away. If you are gigging, try hitting up local stations in the area and try to book an appearance or two. Remember, nobody that accepts music these days wants a download or a CD, as they are either deleted or tossed in the garbage immediately. Send something memorable and include links to your songs, either youtube or soundcloud. And please make it as simple as possible for people to find you. There are no links to your website or social media under your video on YouTube, so I had to search around, which is annoying. If people can't find you within a click or two max, they will probably move onto something else. Thank you for sharing and have fun!

Painted Blue ( non released) by Tiphanie Doucet

Robal Johnson

Lovely, intimate, emotional tune. Thank you for sharing your feelings with me and your audience. I am so glad to hear that you have found a college agent! That will help make this dream a reality by bringing in some income. If you can get into the college circuit, the money will follow. If you can build a following at colleges, a touring agent will come your way soon enough. Keep nurturing a fan base and put together a team of people that you trust. Be careful with publicists, as many will charge a lot and do very little. Find one that understands your vision and accepts your budget. I would be honored to hear some more tunes so please feel free to submit your strongest efforts and I will gladly spread the word. Please let me know if you need any merch to support your EP/album release and holler when you get your college gigs - some of those kids have lots of the parents cash to spend on a t-shirt or tote bag! Best of luck and I look forward to speaking with you again soon.

You're Going Down by Jay Clark

Robal Johnson

This is a cool song. I dig the riffs and I dig your style. It has an outlaw country vibe with a rock n roll groove. Your vocals are strong and the words feel like they really mean something. I like the story behind the tune, as well. You have an authenticity that is rare in today's music. I think the song has a lot of potential, but it needs work. The production needs to be tightened up a bit and it definitely needs to be mixed better. The chorus is infectious, but needs to pop a bit more. It could be a cool anthem style hook if it really explodes. I hope you are gigging in country style rock bars and clubs. Get out there and build your audience organically. Play, play, play, and play some more. I definitely hear your talent, now you need to grow a fan base. Keep writing songs like this and keep making them better. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

Matter Of Time by Cody and the Blackouts

Robal Johnson

Thank you for sharing another jam! This is a fun tune and the horns are a blast. There is no question that you have yourself a tight band with a unique sound. I hope you are gigging a ton and honing your chops because this is the type of act that needs to build an audience by proving their live shows are a must-see. If I were managing your band I would be telling you to hit the road and don't stop, if that is what you wish of course. There are tons of bands out there that want to make a career in music, but just don't have the desire to grind it out on tour. That is the difference between the ones that make it and the ones that do not. I guess it all depends on what you want out of your career. There is nothing wrong with having a good time making music locally, but if you want to build a lifelong passion into a living, you have to find your audience organically from bar to bar, town to town, club to club. If you need help with merch to fund your live shows, give me a shout! Best of luck to you and keep em comin!

Time Stood Still by Cody and the Blackouts

Robal Johnson

This is a cool sound. I hear a little bit of Elvis Costello and a little bit of Eytan and the Embassy. Fun and funky with great vox that seems like it would be a blast to check out live. I would be interested in seeing some live videos and hearing more about what you guys are doing as far as gigging and touring and merchandising. This is definitely a live band that needs to build its fanbase organically. I would also suggest a college radio marketing play. Keep grinding and good luck and thanks for sharing!

Someone to Watch over Me by Natalie Bancroft

Robal Johnson

Lovely voice, lovely cover. I picture an old smokey lounge with a jazz trio in a tv show. This is something that should be submitted to publishing and licensing companies that work with TV and film. Most independent licensing outlets will take unsolicited material, so make it stand out if it's a group that you think would fit with your song choices. Do your research, put together a proper EPK, and send a follow up note. It always helps to send some merchandise afterwards to remind them of your electronic submission. The important thing is to get noticed, so be noticeable. And keep gigging because you have clearly got that onstage vibe, so build your fanbase organically and create a loyal following. That is the only way to make it these days.

Under My Sun by Tiphanie Doucet

Robal Johnson

That was quite lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed listening. It reminds me of a couple of wonderful women I worked with years ago, a mix of A Fine Frenzy and Tristan Prettyman. Your breathy vocals are pretty, the lyrics are smart, the guitar work is impressive, and the strings are a nice addition to the song. I definitely hear some talent and I hope you are gigging as much as possible. The only way to succeed in the industry today is to build a fanbase organically. You don't need radio play or blog posts, you need to sell tickets and merch and play as much as you can. It is a lovely tune and I wish you the best of luck!

Telephone Tag by Leila Sunier

Robal Johnson

I dig the quirky vibe and your voice is quite lovely. The lyrics are cute and the chorus is fun. I like your experimentation with unique instruments. My only criticism is the fluidity and the excessive background vocals. I felt that the song goes from acoustic folk pop to eclectronica and back n forth a bit, which was distracting. But after a few spins, I like the track as a whole and I think there is some potential here. I would be interested to know what kind of performing you are doing at the moment - coffee shops, open mics, clubs, etc. Are you touring, are you gigging regularly, and how are you performing a song like this live with all of the electronics involved? Is it a solo acoustic thing? Do you have a backing band? I love experimental music and I appreciate what you are doing here, but I would have a hard time categorizing this song for radio play or soundtrack submission. Definitely interested in hearing more. Please feel free to send more tracks and holler with any questions. Good luck!

IDIOT by Mermaed

Robal Johnson

This is really good. Great vox, cool riffs, tight drums, strong production. A fun song with playful lyrics. I would be pushing this out to college radio stations and independent tv/film licensing companies. I can absolutely hear this in a movie or show and smaller placement houses are always looking for something catchy to submit to music supervisors. And the benefit of most indies is that you often don't need to sign an exclusive contract. If you have an EPK already made, start firing it off. Don't email download attachments, always streaming links. And if you have merch, follow up your electronic submission with a snail mail package of a t-shirt with a personalized note. Don't need to bother with CDs, as they will just end up in the garbage, so don't waste your money. But a tee will get their attention and remind them to check out your jams if they had either ignored or missed them. I definitely want to hear some more tunes and would love to hear more about the band. Keep up the good work, gig as much as possible to hone your skills, and write, write, write songs.

Pushover by Agency

Robal Johnson

I'm diggin this and I hear a lot of potential. The vocals are really strong and the production is tight. The song is not really in my wheelhouse, so I don't want to offer constructive criticism when I can't properly weigh in. But I definitely hear talent and I hope you continue to push ahead. As of right now my questions would be to ask if you are performing and performing a lot. Every artist needs to hone their skills in a live setting and there is only one way to go from good to great and that is to perform whenever and wherever possible. Every great manager will push their artists to get out there and play their music live in front of any audience that will have them. In today's music biz you have to have a loyal fanbase before you are even considered for a label or publishing deal. You have to grow your following organically and the only way to do that is get out there and hustle. Nobody cares if there is nobody that cares. So get out there and hustle and if you're great the business will come knocking. Best of luck and I hope to hear more songs real soon. If there is anything I can help with, feel free to submit any time. Cheers.

Hunt Me Down by Agency

Robal Johnson

This has a really chill vibe that I think would be perfect for college radio and tv/film licensing right off the bat. Not sure what you guys are doing as far as promotion, but those are the two areas that I would be focusing on if I were representing you. I would put together some EPKs and start blasting them out to college stations and indie publishing houses. You have a cool attitude with strong vox and smart production and I hope the live experience is equally impressive. This is a unique sound that needs to be grown organically so I would be performing as much as possible at as many places that will have you. Get out there and keep crushing and best of luck to you. I would love to hear some more tunes, so please feel free to submit more any time. Cheers.

Challenge by David DeRose

Robal Johnson

This track is quite lovely. While it may not be in my personal wheelhouse for standalone music, I believe it would be perfectly suited for TV/film soundtracks. And in my opinion, that should be your target right now. If you have not already, I would put together an electronic press kit (EPK) that offers a bio, soundcloud, etc, and send it to independent licensing shops in NY and LA. Small publishing companies are always looking for new material to submit to music directors and often they are very loyal to those that get regular work. But other than that, obviously keep making music and keep putting yourself out there. There is talent here and I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to send more tunes any time. All the best. Cheers.

The Maze by Ascidzz

Robal Johnson

I'm diggin this track. The beats are chill, but the vox are aggressive. It's a cool combination. I could definitely hear this on some college radio shows and that could lead to some good touring opportunities. The first thing I would do is put together an EPK electronic press kit and compile a list of email addresses for college stations. Don't send CDs or any other physical material because it usually ends up in the garbage. And don't send music files as attachments, always use links like the SoundClound you posted here. Nobody likes their work emails clogged up with huge music files. I will pass this along to my urban a&r friends and fam and will holler if I hear any interest. Definitely feel free to post more tunes and I am happy to give some constructive criticism before you blast anything out. And I'm always down to offer advice when applicable. Best of luck and keep sending music. Cheers.

GIVE ME MORE - Single by Micah Elloh

Robal Johnson

This track is impressive. The vocals are good and the beat is strong, but the hook is actually really tight. I definitely hear some potential in you and I would definitely be interested in hearing some more. If I were you, I would start submitting your music to independent publishing companies as a songwriter and perhaps something from there could perhaps lead to a performance deal. Do you play your music live? Are you building an audience? How are you attracting fans? Do you send your music to blogs? Or independent radio stations? You should be asking yourself all of those questions because no label or pub house are interested in signing artists who have not developed a fan base on their own. You need an organic following at first, then you can find a career. I hope that helps and best to luck to you. Thank you for sharing your art with me. Cheers.

Amateur Telephony by No Alarms

Robal Johnson

I gotta be honest and tell you that I really liked this track. The vocals are hot, the riffs are killer, the bass line is dope, and the drums are tight. I'll bet this sounds really great live and hope to catch a show soon. Let me know when you will be in NYC and I will try my best to roll through and bring friends. My only criticism is that I kept waiting for an explosive chorus and it just didn't happen. It's fun and super catchy, but the chorus is too similar to the orchestration of the song. Just my opinion, but I really dig this and hope to hear more real soon. All the best. Cheers.

Robal Johnson

Diggin this track. Thanks for sharing, boys. Chugging riffs and smashing drums. Great bass lines and strong vocals. You guys need to be gigging around the UK as much as you can. Just hit the road and don't pass up any opportunities. I have passed along your tunes to all of my friends in the rock n roll scene over here, but of course you need to get some traction going over there before any agents or labels will make an introduction. Just hit it hard and start building a fanbase. Live dates and club gigs are absolutely everything and word of mouth will make or break any band nowadays. Once you have established yourselves locally, branch out regionally, then nationally, then across the channel. Everyone in this business talks and if you guys have what it takes, you will get noticed fairly quickly. You're lucky to be over there because it is relatively cheap to travel and tour, while here in the US everything is insanely spread out and touring is massively expensive and usually kills most rock/metal acts before they can make a name for themselves. Keep me posted on your progress and keep crushing that new rock sound! \m/

Right is What's Left by No Alarms

Robal Johnson

I’m diggin this jam. Sounds like a dance party when played live. Definitely interested in hearing more from you guys and will absolutely blast this out to my rock and pop A&R friends. Hope you are gigging a ton and building an audience. That is the only way to make it these days. Once a fan base is constructed, alt radio and labels will be calling. Hit the road and keep me posted. Well done. Good luck.

This is fucking SICK. Aggressive yet melodic, powerful yet palpable. I am really diggin this sound. Definitely want to hear more. Please let me know where to go and what else to stream. Send me your best songs and I will give them a listen. Have the guys been gigging? Any local airplay? Any press? I would love to help getting the single in front of some American A&Rs if the guys are still independent. Thanks for sharing - made my day! Cheers.

Even by The Pulltops

Robal Johnson

I really dig this tune. It is a solid rock ballad with good riffs and strong vocals. The lyrics are powerful and the heartache is palpable. My only suggestion is that it is a bit long and the fadeout is unnecessary. Maybe tighten it up to around 3:30ish. But other than that, I would love to hear this live and I bet the buildup to the chorus is awesome. You definitely have gotten my attention and I am definitely interested in hearing more. Great song. Bravo.

The Seas I See by Houg

Robal Johnson

This track is DOPE. Love the horns, love the hook, love the flow. Jazzy throwback to Digable Planets and US3 style is really cool. You should be blasting out emails to college radio stations around North America which should include a link to the song/video, a brief but interesting bio, and a list of gigs you have performed. You should be doing the same to promoters around Australia to boost your booking. If you are going to use a publicist, make sure you do your research - they can be expensive, but with the right team who understands your style of music and the appropriate demographic it should be targeting, then it can be well worth it. I always suggest to find a young and hungry PR who may have the contacts but hasn't established themselves yet. 

Once you start building a fanbase locally and regionally, then start emailing A&Rs at labels that put out records like this. Keep them brief but interesting and stick to links - no attachments or files! Keep up the good work and feel free to holler any time with some new jams. Dig your vibe and hope to hear more in the future. Best of luck. Cheers.

Poison The Well by The Pulltops

What a fun tune. I'll bet you guys are a blast to see live. Cool vox, tight orchestration, and fun groove. I'm sure after 15 years you have a strong local and regional fanbase, so keep gigging and having fun because that is what it's all about. Love the horns, too! Thanks for sharing. Keep rockin.

On My Way To You by Noelle Micarelli

Robal Johnson

This is super quirky and super cute. Great voice and smart lyrics. The tune is catchy and concise. The instrument is very unique and adds a worldly vibe with its own character. You should definitely be gigging in that realm - NPR, college radio, local radio affiliates and clubs that play thoughtful artists with a global sound. I would be reaching out to cafes and shops that cater to that crowd and pitch for airplay, interviews, performances, etc. I think you have a sweet talent that could find a comfortable niche in the long tail of today's music business. Best of luck and hope to hear more soon! Cheers.

06 HIGHER by Music By Chel

Robal Johnson

This is a good song choice, as it is catchy and bubbly and fun, but I would need to hear something that shows off your vocal range a bit more to give a proper review. The production could use a bit of polish, but the beat is strong and the hook is right. I think you obviously have some talent and I would love to know more about you and where you are at in your career. What sort of team have you built so far and where have you performed? What have you accomplished already and what are your goals for this year? If I were your manager, I would have you performing as often as possible to hone your craft and I would put together an EP with a few songs that show off your vocal range and musical taste to send out to A&Rs. All killer, no filler - nobody listens to an album from an artist they have never heard from. Are you performing at SXSW this year? Any other industry events? I am happy to help in any way I can. Feel free to holler with questions any time. Best of luck. Cheers.

Zone 4 (Mu-Tha-F*cka) by Jared-Wesley

Robal Johnson

This track is dope. Love the throwback jazzy vibe ala Digable Planets and US3. Killer beat, tight flow, and smart lyrics. I am really diggin this vibe and can't wait to hear more. I hope you guys are getting out there and performing, honing your chops and growing your audience. There is a huge demand for conscious, independent hip hop, but you have to hustle to get those new fans. Definitely reach out to indie hip hop labels and college radio stations - send care packages with music and swag. Find a publicist that understands your target demographic and start looking for like-minded blogs to premiere your jams. Build a team that is both passionate about your music and either has established relationships in the industry or is capable of building new ones. I am happy to make suggestions if needed. Look forward to hearing more tunes and best of luck to you guys.

Tremelo Girl by The Coffinstuffers

Robal Johnson

I dig your style. This has a cool, retro punk vibe akin to the Dead Milkmen and the Violent Femmes. The vocals are fun, the riffs are tight, and the chorus is catchy as fuck. I would bet that this is a fan favorite at live gigs and I am sure the crowd will be singing along. I am sure there is a punk label out there that would be into supporting the band, but unfortunately that is not my area of expertise and can not think of anyone in that scene to share this with. I would submit a digital care package to every label you guys are a fan of and follow up with a snail mail swag bag. I would also send the track to college radio stations around the country and follow up the same way. If you guys can do cheap tees and/or buttons and/or totes I would send those. The swag bag costs a bit more, but I know from experience that it stands out and definitely gets you recognized. Please keep sharing your tunes and holler with any questions any time. Best of luck.

The Claw by Chasbo Zelena

Robal Johnson

That was kind of amazing. Hilariously hillbilly, but not in a bad way, in a really fucking fun way. The song is fun, the video is fun, and you seem really fucking fun. Reminds me a bit of a Dax Riggs tune from his Deadboy and the Elephantmen days - a little bit country and a whole lotta rock n roll. This tune is probably a killer when performed live and if done right I'm sure has everyone singing along. I hope you are hitting the concrete and gigging everywhere that will have you. This is a juke joint jam and that is absolutely how you will build a fanbase. Focus on that 100% and I could see you making a career out of music like this. Just hit the road and don't stop until you are packing rooms. Who cares how big or small, as long as people are coming to sing along to "The Claw!" Hope to hear some more tunes from you and best of luck, my man. Thanks so much for sharing.

Promise by Specks Gomez

Robal Johnson

I really dig this track, guys. Great vox, tight beats, and strong production. I love the chill vibe and the hook is good. There are a few too many sound effects for my taste, but of course that adds to its uniqueness. I hear a bit of The Postal Service in here, which is a huge plus in my book. I think this has some pop potential and I believe your songwriting is worth taking notice. I would tighten it up to around the 3-3.5 minute mark, as it is a bit too long and a shortened version might make the chorus pop a bit more. Please feel free to email me some more tracks and any live videos you have would be helpful. Definitely want to hear more and would like to learn a bit more about your project. Thank you so much for sharing. Cheers.

All We Have Is Now by The Modern Electric

Robal Johnson

I really dig this track, boys. It has a chugging backbeat, killer vox, and beautiful orchestration. I love the keys and the hook is fire. My only complaint is its lack of fluidity at parts. While I do enjoy the stop start production at times, occasionally the song sounds a bit choppy like it was cut and pasted together. I absolutely love the different stages of the tune because I feel that it builds quite well. Just wish it was always moving forward. Other than that, this is a scorcher. With a bit of work I think this could be a big song for you guys. I would love to hear more. Feel free to email me a bit more about the band and what you have coming up the pipeline. I am happy to help in any way I can. Best of luck and look forward to catching up.

Really diggin this tune, man. Great alt-country / indie rock jam. Strong vocals, tight riffs, chugging groove. The guitar work is quite impressive and I kinda wish there was a bit more. Kudos to the producer, as well. The song has a full sound that you just don't hear often enough these days.

This is a beautiful tune. Thank you so much for sharing. I dig the simple instrumental and the vocals are quite good. The chorus jumps out nicely from the mellow orchestration. Have you thought of doing a remix that makes it a bit more of a dance track? I think the vocals work so well with the chorus that it is almost a disappointment going back. The rap is a cool addition and definitely flows. Again, really dig the tune. I guess my only critique would be that I think it could really pop at a faster pace. Thanks for the great work. Cheers.

What a beautiful orchestral recording. Obviously, your focus should be in film and television scoring. I will send this song to my friends in publishing and placement. Thank you so much for sharing this gorgeous piece with me. Best of luck to you in your endeavors. Cheers,

So Nuanced by EVAN TYLER + topless literati

Let me start out by saying that I love the beat. This groove is a scorcher and could really get some attention. Unfortunately, in my opinion, the lyrics and flow do not vibe well with the dance riffs. Not sure if its the low vocals or the raps themselves, but it simply did not click for me. But that beat! Holy shit that beat. That is straight up fire. Thank you for sharing.

So I Tell 'Em Fuck Off by Jonny Freesh

Robal Johnson

This is hands down the most interesting track I have heard all year - and it happens to be incredible. Lyrics and flow are very impressive and the hook is catchy as fuck. I am really, really diggin this jam and I can not wait to hear more. The video is outstanding, as well. I have zero creative feedback to offer because you guys hit this one out of the park. I would love to talk shop and see what you are planning as far as promotion and I am happy to answer any industry questions you may have. Please feel free to email me any time. With your permission, I will gladly share this with everyone I know. Cheers.

This is really good. The hook is top notch and the groove is super fun. Killer beat and chill vibe. I dig the slow rhymes, as it keeps good pace with the track. I would definitely be interested in hearing more jams and learning about your career thus far. Thank you for sharing and please feel free to holler to continue the conversation.

Iceland by Amy Kress

Robal Johnson

What a lovely song. Your vocals are very sexy and the lyrics are quite impressive. The orchestration is beautiful and the choral progression is really groovy. My only criticism is the electronic beats are distracting from the instrumentation. I would love to hear an acoustic version, without any beats behind it. Thank you so much for sharing and please let me know where I can hear more.

Single by Somewhere Under The Rainbow

Robal Johnson

This is one of the best tunes I have heard in quite some time. I love the riff, the vox, and the lyric flow. It caught me off guard and I thought it was a cover at first, but then it sucked me in and I can not stop listening on repeat. It has a oldies groove that is absolutely infectious, but it has a modern vibe that mixes rockabilly and garage rock. Thank you so much for sharing and I would love to hear more songs from you. I will definitely post the track to my social media pages and I will share it with my tastemaker friends. Thank you for submitting a killer rock n rolll song!
