Eddie S.G. is simply music

As owner and founder of The Forward Progress Sound (TFPS), composer, music producer, audio engineer, songwriter, and multigenre artist, Eddie S.G. is simply a music geek. As a kid growing up in Queens, NY, his passion for music began with his parents and in school. Rock ‘n’ Roll, Salsa, Merengue, and R&B were always in the air around the house, as poetry and playing clarinet in the school band became his hands-on access to creativity. Trouble at home forced him to leave at age 16. From that point on, music became more than just something in the air to him. It became his outlet. He started inking his thoughts, rhyming them, and then turning them into lyrics.
Eddie S.G. signed up to join the Marine Corps in his senior year of high school and left for bootcamp after graduating. After a 7-year career and one year as a Boeing contractor living in the UK, he decided to return home to pursue a higher education in music. He graduated from the Institute of Audio Research with a diploma in A…

Jessica's Theme Band was formed in Athens, Greece,

Jessica's Theme Band was formed in Athens, Greece, in 1989, by John Goudoulas, Jim Karahontzitis and Nick Agathos. They wanted to present a different view to covers such as Tush, I know A Little, Feel Like Making Love, Don't Believe A Word etc as well as their own, original, material. Following numerous live gigs, collaborations with local acknowledged musicians, and even after receiving the first prize as band of the year in 1991 on a Greek TV show, the band was disbanded in 1994. After each member's musical journey, they decided to re-unite with two significant additions: Tony Linaris on drums and Denis Kaskouras (a later member of the original band) on bass. With a complete line up, the band started working on its first album, in 2013, inspired by bands from the early seventies (Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Bros, Molly Hatchet, Eagles), by various British bands like Bad Company, UFO etc and by Irish bands like Thin Lizzy, Rory Gallagher etc.

The Damnable Cads is Flyah

The Damnable Cads are a cadre of arrogant swine who travel the world swilling beer and keeping the neighbours up late. Do not trust these men. Unless of course you’re just after a good time that you’ll deny ever happened.

This band is awesome.  I normally just listen to one song when I put bands in our magazine but these guys will have you coming back for more.  I really love the way their songs play out.  They have a cool calming vibe with well put together lyrics.  They remind me of great bands like Three Doors Down and Owl City.  They have about 5 or six songs on Soundcloud that are all creative and different from most.  Take the time to check them out and don't be afraid to comment and tell us what you think

Pathos Pathos indie/pop/rock band out of Orlando, Florida.

It’s in circuses and festivals where every view that greets the eye is spectacular and alluring. Abnormality is celebrated and human dilemma, outside the fair gates, becomes an afterthought. Beneath these carnival lights, Pathos, Pathos is the search for euphoria along a path obscured by obsession, longing, and doubt.


About the band: Pathos, Pathos is an indie/pop/rock band out of Orlando, Florida. The band’s debut album, Familiar Homes, focuses on human connection and the interplay between fantasy and truth, between promiscuity and virtue, and between death and ordeal.

DeDe: An Artist In her Prime-Ahead of Her Time

About the Artist DeDe: An Artist In her Prime-Ahead of Her Time At the October, 2015 International Music & Entertainment Awards (http://www.IMEAawards.com), we had the pleasure of hearing 2014 Two-time Album of the Year winner & 2015 Song of the Year winner, DeDe Wedekind, perform her Folk Song of the Year Nominee, “Prime of Life” from her upcoming album Dream of You. But her Song of the Year Category win that night was for her Adult Contemporary original, “Stronger”.
What sets this talented artist apart from others is not only her great vocals, which garnered her Best Vocalist in March 2014 on SingerUniverse.com, but her unique & versatile songwriting. DeDe writes songs that cross many genres of music including: Adult Contemporary, Folk, Pop, Country-Pop, Rock, Americana, Singer/Songwriter, World Music, Jazz and Inspirational. This was evident when at the 2014 IMEA Award Show she received 9 nominations in 7 different categories (the most of any IMEA Artist).  And indeed s…

Le Folli Arie become a reality in 2012

Le Folli Arie become a reality in 2012. The band is made of four musicians living in Milan that have a huge live experience. They all have worked in various musical projects and share a common love for music from the 70's(Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, PFM, Banco di Mutuo Soccorso, Area,...). They have also been influenced by grunge, pop, latin, funk, jazz, heavy metal. The clash and melt of all these musical influences gave birth to Le Folli Arie's unique style. The process of making the band sound whole and unique required 2 years of labor-intensive work. Once you listen throughout the album you can perceive the binding that gathers the 13 tracks together. The listener is able to experience many extremely different atmospheres and emotional episodes and to appreciate a deep sense of coherence throughout the entire listening experience. That's why defining Le Folli Arie's style is not a simple task: it could be prog music dressed as pop or the exact opposite.
In a world dominat…

The Quiet Cull rock quartet based out of Anchorage, AK.

The Quiet Cull is a rock quartet based out of Anchorage, AK. Fashioned from roots like Thrice, Brand New, and Sparta, the sonic territory they cover is certainly dynamic. With a range of hard and heavy, to mellow, somber and slow, TQC is surely described as contemplative and introspective.

The band started as the brain child of founding member, Todd Farnsworth, who wrote and recorded the bands first full length, before the bands official formation. Growing up in a small town, Farnsworth tried forming the band much earlier, but could never get members to commit. So after many fruitless rehearsals, he decided to hunker down and write the rest of his ideas. Relying on his knowledge and skill from playing percussion in middle and high school, and also from playing guitar for several years, he tracked what is now "Allegories In Rhythm". He now says, "I never imagined a band I would be in to start with a full record, before ever filling out the band. It was out of necessity, b…
