Rhett May Releases Exceptional Creatures of the Night Rock Music Video

Rhett May has successfully written and released an album that challenges the cookie-cutter landscape of rock music today.  Rhett was originally born in Calcutta before moving to Australia.  He showcases the culture he was born into with his Sitar playing and also leaves no doubt about his love of classic rock.  His melodic lines are engaging and played with impressive mastery while still balancing perfectly with the distorted guitars and vocals.

Mays lyrics are top notch as well.  His observational writing is incredibly successful and, lyrically, his songs are all more than satisfactory.  If you enjoy the cohesive album writing of classic rock, Creatures of the Night should definitely be on your listening list.  Though the songs vary heavily in stylistic intent, orchestration and lyrical content- the album maintains an outstanding flow and will satisfy you from the first note of the first song until the reverb ends on the final track of the work.

To get a taste of what the album has to offer, head to Noisetrade where Rhett is giving away a FREE DOWNLOAD of “Lexxi May”. If you love what you hear, then head to iTunes to get yourself a copy of the album.

Join the Jagernation with Jagertown’s New Country Single Rearview on YouTube

Fellow fans of quality and timeless country music! I’m so glad to tell y’all that the future of country is finally here! The band Jagertown is now my go-to! They’ve been around for nearly 12 years but honestly I never listened to them before and with their most recent single Rearview; honestly I’m a new resident of Jagernation!

I found a sweet video on YouTube here .  If you pre-order the Rearview EP you can get the title track for FREE on Google Play here !

Their website says they’re the National Ambassadors of the infamous Fan Fest with big names being held in Utah in July this year – Brett Eldredge is this year’s headliner! Their energy is amazing and if I could describe them more to y’all I’d say they’re kinda like Blake Shelton or a modern version of Johnny Cash, but with their own unique modern edge. Go check them out!

Rearview by Jagertown Is Changing the Country Music Game

My fellow country fans you guys are going to love this, I just heard the best break up song EVER it’s so refreshing!! It’s called Rearview by Jagertown I just heard it on this Country Music radio station, and the song has been stuck in my head all day, and I’m not even mad about it. Of course I had to find out as much as I could about the band but all I was able to find was the song is off an album from the same name that doesn’t come out till next week. But I did find a music video, which I will put right here, to help a friend out. Doesn’t this sound like the perfect mash up of Blake Shelton and some classic rock? That fiddle really makes me wish it was in all music.
