Greg Amici Drops New Single and Video for “Remedy”

Greg Amici, the multi-talented musician, writer and actor from New Jersey, is back with a new single and video "Remedy", which is out now. It's the follow-up to his well-received single, "In Like a Lion" from his forthcoming LP Tragicomic.Amici says, ‘“Remedy” is about a guy with fairly impersonal needs and a partner whose sensual desires may have morphed into something stronger. Or else it’s about COVID… Musically, it’s sort of a sing-along shanty. And, in times like these, I suppose 'we all need a remedy.' "Right? Right.""Remedy" was produced by James Mastro (The Bongos, Mott the Hoople, Patti Smith, The Jayhawks) at Magic Door Recording (Montclair, NJ). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCklxXprJtA

Grohl-Led Documentary Chronicles ‘Life In A Van’ Before Massive Success For Bands

No band or musician starts out selling out Madison Square Garden or The Forum right away. It can take years to even progress past playing the bar circuit. A new Dave Grohl-directed documentary tells the story of a number of well-known bands just starting out. Perhaps it'll even inspire some of the next generation of talent to hit the road and test their fortunes once more concerts return. The new trailer for What Drives Us provides a sample of how the film will take an in-depth look at experiences from acts like No Doubt, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, and many others before they started selling out arenas. Each act pays tribute to their early years on the road and points out how important that time was to their development. According to a press release the movie is a testament to...

As easy as it is to add music to each post, it's also become an important source of new music discovery. But we're not talking about t...
