Broken Dreams (feat. David Boulianne) by Daniel Damian Kapuscinski

A traditional old-school rock single with punchy drums brings a blast of emotions that runs throughout the song. Well written and composed, this song starts by giving us a combination of synth organ, deep bass and guitars. Vocals are layered with harmonies and the piano is mixed perfectly that sits among other musical elements. The transition from verses to the chorus is very smooth and unfolds the overall character of this song. Popular chord progression stays consistent throughout the song. Snare pierces through the rhythmic pattern and spaces in between are filled with guitar leaks. The guitar solo establishes the musical aspect that leaves a mark on the listener's mind. The interesting part of this song is that it becomes more and more enjoyable as you listen to it over time. With unique vocal harmonies at the end of this song, 'Broken Dreams' feat. David Boulianne produced by Daniel Damian holds the ability to make a remarkable place in rock music.

'Vibes for Miles' - a wonderfully written and composed album by Scott Waters

'Vibes for Miles' album by Scott Waters

Beginning with a hopeful, cheery spirit, Scott presents us with a wonderfully written and composed song filled with melodic vocal harmonies, surprising chord progressions sustained by bright fresh and deep sounding guitars, and a rhythmic pattern chasing the next beat. We immediately get an idea of how the album is going to progress - but there are surprises! There is a well-maintained theme throughout the album. All songs utilise and shine a spotlight on every single instrument used in the album by allowing them their own individual chance to shine alongside vocals. Jucy fillers, small cameos of various instruments throwing shades of multiple genres and crunchy guitar solos are sprinkled throughout. To name but a few favourites, 'Gypsy Heart' contains elegant piano and string elements. 'You Are Everything' is catchy and just urges the listener to sing along. 'We Don't Talk Anymore' is a melodious and deliciously traditional heartbreaking song at the core, and 'Whiskey Nights' holds an extraordinary and impactful duet. Scott Waters' album 'Vibe for Miles' is a timeless work of art.

About Scott Waters:

Scott Waters

"I grew up in a small town in Northeast Connecticut which I compare to growing up on a blank canvas. So it seemed only natural to take refuge in music. I have been writing and performing music since I was a teenager. I have worked on other artists albums over the years but now have finally recorded and released my first solo project. PEACE SIGNS AND DRAGONFLIES.

After sifting through over 100 home demos I found these 12 to be some of my favourites. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I have enjoyed writing and recording them. It truly is a labour of love for me. During the making of this album, I found myself inspired to make music again. With a little luck, I will be back in the studio recording my sophomore album soon. Thank you for visiting my web page. Hope you enjoy the music.

Peace and Love, Scott Waters"

Tom Tikka & The Missing Hubcaps back with a new single 'By 2022'

Introducing creative electronic tones via the synth and establishing the rhythm with a consistent beat, this song claims its identity firmly in the pop genre immediately. Strong, warm bass sits right beside punchy kick and snare drums bringing depth while the listener experiences electronic minimalism with gently mixed guitar picking during the verses. All musical elements sit perfectly behind the vocals. Sharp and hypnotising, the vocals take the spotlight as soon as they are introduced. Soothing and melodic, the vocalist demonstrates a wide range, maintaining a constant high energy. Many fillers in the form of electronic sounds, as well as beats, are added, expressing the creative and accomplished composition of this song. Spacious harmonies take us gradually towards the end of the song where every musical element is unleashed to its highest potential, leading to a remarkable atmospheric overall sound. 

A perfect new year song 'by 2022' by Tom Tikka & The Missing Hubcaps will be released on December 3rd, 2021, everywhere.

About Tom Tikka & The Missing Hubcaps:

Tom Tikka & The Missing Hubcaps

"Tom Tikka picked up the guitar at the tender age of six after hearing Paul Anka’s “Lonely Boy” in his father’s old Chevrolet. Soon afterwards, he began writing songs. Tom’s infatuation with music only deepened after his aunt’s husband Timo "Oippa" Oinonen introduced him to the concept of lead guitar and even more important to the music of such legendary groups as The Beatles and The Doors.

Tikka formed almost as many groups as he disbanded in his late teens and early twenties. Yet, when he finally signed his first recording contract on his 21st birthday, it was a solo deal and not a band effort. He recorded a three-song EP for Olarin Musiikki, a small indie label in Espoo (Finland), under the alias of Tom Spark. Unfortunately, the EP disappeared as quickly as it was released. Consequently, Tikka found himself in square one, without a band or a record deal.

Disappointed, Tom withdrew from music for a few years but began writing songs again once his brother Lappe Holopainen suggested that they form a songwriting team. Lappe had founded a group he was convinced would go far and he needed tunes for his new outfit. This group was Carmen Gray.

Carmen Gray was signed to Sony/BMG in 2005 and during the next nine years, they went on to record three albums and one EP. The group's entire catalogue (including such radio hits as “Lost In My Mind Again”, “Gates Of Loneliness” & “Life Can Be Beautiful”) was penned by Tom Tikka & Lappe Holopainen.

After Carmen Gray disbanded in 2013, Tikka formed his current group The Impersonators with poet Antti Autio. In 2017, The Impersonators signed with FBP, a German label based out of Frankfurt. Together with their producer Janne Saksa, the Josie Award-nominated The Impersonators have released tunes to rave reviews, a considerable amount of radio attention and chart success: “Rodeo” rose to #1 on the International iTunes charts and “Scarlett Hell” to #9.

In April 2020, Tom began working with MTS Records and has since released three critically-acclaimed solo EPs, one album and several iTunes hits, including the two #1 singles: "Doormat" & "With Eyes Closed".

In 2021, Tom Tikka won an ISSA award for International Male Emerging Artist Of The Year. He was also awarded four Josie-Award nominations as well as a nomination in the prestigious Hollywood Music In Media Awards."

The Little Wretches' live performance of 'All of My Friends'

All of My Friends - Live Acoustic by The Little Wretches

Any live performance is a real challenge for artists. The inclusion of a strong message and carrying that message throughout the piece, maintaining an equally strong composition and balance is a real test of master-craftsmanship, but The Little Wretches pull it off in grand style. The band creates a spark and establishes genre influence with this amazing single - 'All of My Friends'. The song contains a uniquely poetic and comedic way to tell the listener a story about the writer's point of view on life and diversity of thought among people. Strumming acoustic guitar playing along with a rustic-toned violin creates an interesting and engaging atmosphere. The lyrics dominate the piece to highlight the message they carry. The singer's voice has great range and tone that directs the song to its destination - the listener's heart and mind. This song is like a musical spell that casts a feeling of hope at the end.

Listen to 'All of My Friends' - Live Acoustic by The Little Wretches on Spotify.

About The Little Wretches:

The Little Wretches the band

"The Little Wretches was co-founded by brothers Robert Andrew and Charles John Wagner. Bob wrote original songs and adapted traditional folk songs, tried to sing and accompanied himself on guitar while Chuckie worked out counterpoint melodies on violin.

“My songs are mirrors, and I often begin or end my performances by playing a version of The Velvet Underground’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror” extended to more than ten minutes in length to include some of the images that most shaped my view of the world as a young man—working men and women enslaved in pursuit of the dollar, the now-vacant void from whence the spirit fled filled with the distraction of mindless entertainment, alcohol and assorted drugs, people so numb that self-destructive violence has lost its impact and the only way they can hope to feel anything is to hurt the people they love...God wanted me to grow up to defend the weak and vanquish the evil-doers by writing songs and telling stories. And if I’m wrong, I’ve wasted my life.” - Robert Wagner

As frontman and chief songwriter/lyricist for 80s/90s seminal Pittsburgh rock band, Little Wretches, Robert Wagner rode a wave of local notoriety that led the band to the forefront of the underground music scene. The Little Wretches were founded as a folk/punk band by Robert (guitar) and his brother, Chuckie (violin).  The “classic” Mach 2 era of Little Wretches included Ed Heidel (bass), Chris Bruckhoff (percussion, wind instruments, backing vocals) and Bob Goetz (guitar), rounded out by Dave Mitchell (drums), Mike Michalski (bass) and Ellen Hildebrand (electric guitar.) This rock edition of the band performed regularly and helped the band build its massive following in Pittsburgh.  Michalski, Mitchell and Chuckie Wagner left the band, effectively ending Mach 2.

Mach 3 began with the addition of David Losi (keyboards) and Mike Madden (drums.) When Madden couldn’t tour, drum programmer Gregg Bielski took over.  When Ellen switched to bass guitar, this version of The Little Wretches entered the studio. They recorded two albums, with Angelo George playing the drums and Jon Paul Leone playing the guitar on a third. The national press, attorneys, managers, and publicists came calling, as did life’s obligations, and the Little Wretches disbanded in the late 90s.

Robert Wagner continues to perform at coffeehouses and small clubs. A Master’s Degree holder, Wagner also counsels abused, neglected, traumatized and court-adjudicated youth. He is the co-founder of The Calliope Acoustic Open Stage, an event that has lasted 15+ years. He has also recorded and released two new albums in 2020: Undesirables and Anarchists and Burning Lantern Dropped In Straw.  The former has spawned an iTunes chart-topping single and has received airplay on more than 115 North American AM/FM radio stations."
