Three-piece blues/rock outfit, GUSS graces the blog’s hotspot with their single, ‘Flames’, taken from their debut EP ‘Cellar Sessions.’
Since their inception in 2017, the Kentucky rockers are rapidly becoming a staple in the indie-rock scene in their hometown and across the Midwest with their irresistible combo of soul music with a real gritty injection of rock ‘n’ roll, bearing the influences of rock heavyweights, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Hootie and the Blowfish.
So I invite you to have a listen the single ‘Flames’…and if you hear any other influences, why not have your say below!
Following a whirlwind of success last year, DELAFAYE is back with two brand new singles, ‘These Days’ and ‘Go Away Just To Stay’.
Although ‘These Days’ sees the Kentucky singer/songwriter coming out of his shell with a refreshing/slight uptempo affair (LISTEN HERE), ‘Go Away Just To Stay’ steals the blog’s heart for its authentic and stripped back singer/songwriter approach that’s typically DELAFAYE. His undeniable ability to draw in the listener to hear and FEEL every word is simply magical. So it comes to no surprise that his three EPs, released in 2017, gained over two million streams and led him to perform in just about every venue in his native Louisville, KY and beyond.
Both singles are taken from the self-titled debut album, ‘Delafaye’, set for release at the end of this year, December 2018. For now, it’s time to enter into the compelling world of DELAFAYE – listen to ‘Go Away Just To Stay’
After periods of recording from the bedroom of his Louisville apartment , Andrew Shockley -aka DELAFAYE – presents his latest EP ‘Highlands, released last month.
The acoustic guitar and drums takes lead in ‘Part I’ and ‘She Shook Me,’ giving off a sultry soulful rock sensation, where the alternative rocker’s vocals lures between the arrangements. Further along the EP, a sweet harmonica makes a brief presence through third effort, ‘Tripping and Rolling’, adding a feather light folkore feel.
‘Highlands’ EP routes back and concludes with that real gritty soulful/rock combo along with the alluring vocals from the beginning.
There are some potential favorites in this mini package – it was VERY hard to choose – so it’s over to you; have a listen to the EP and pick your favorites and say in the comment box.
