"I wrote this song about people that come off perfect, and how it “Must Be Nice” to just let things be, and not doubt yourself. It’s a really personal song, and I wanted to capture specific details from my life while also making it relatable to everyone." Molly Baker
"The opening lyric to Ride or Die is a perfect representation of what I was feeling. “I found myself on a highway heading south when I should have been going the other way.” I literally wrote that line while commuting to my job. I had been working a 9 - 5 and had completed neglected this other part of me. The artist in me was trapped, abandoned, sad and angry. I knew I had to turn things around and focus on music and I was lucky to have someone by my side to encourage me to live in my power." Rena Hart
Brand new video release today (June 29th) for the last track "Valley" the neo-psyche stoner-punk closing track off the award winning EP, SMOKED it's very good reason to watch it here and also take a look to this article presented last year, enjoy it!!!
Ralphy steals the spotlight with an ass-kicking performance that will transform the edgy track produced by Casey Sullivan and Yuri Buzynnik into your next obsession.
“Desolation” Lyrically, the track explores the theme of finding an exit when your whole being is screaming for relief and redemption, and you’re looking for that wormhole in reality’s web through where you’ll get to that “somewhere else-place” where the pain that’s keeping you on your toes will die down and let you put your naked feet on the ground.
"For all intents and purposes, I am The Blessed Ghost, or more importantly was The Blessed Ghost, a true mirror image of not only everything I disliked about myself, but a guide as to how I can better myself every day of my life, for as long as I can hear this album, I will be glad in knowing that I have come so far and done so much." Rory / Voodoo Bloo
After releasing his previous single Muzzle Training, Bad Blood is releasing a new track crafted with an Indie Rock attitude. With a sound that resembles bands like Arctic Monkeys and Alt-J, this single is a no-shame ode to individualism and vanity!
"This EP, Heart in a Notebook was a crowdfunded album recorded at PlaidDog Recording in Boston, MA and is a handful of tunes that represent the versatility of my Songwriting. Down to the River is an origin song that tells about where I came from and who I am and how I deal with life. The single and title of the EP, Heart in a Notebook, is a first person perspective of my journey through heartbreak, breakup, and the struggle to move on. "
"Back in March I decided to check myself into a residential rehab facility. I decided before they picked me up that I would leave my guitar at home. Focus on my recovery. Oddly enough, just a few days before I got there someone had donated a guitar to the facility. Villain was the first song I wrote on that cheap guitar. Day 3 of rehab alone at 4AM in the cafeteria. I had so much shame & guilt. I felt completely worthless & terrified. And then all of sudden I had Villain." Kyle Huskey
