The Saboteurs EP – Some Original Music From JoeGuerilla

OK, I realized recently that even though I’m pretty much neck-deep in the music industry with my video and web work, most of the people I’ve encountered over the last few years aren’t aware that I actually write and make music myself.

This is , of course, my fault. I haven’t recorded anything in awhile, [...]

The Road Less Taken – Brett Newski Records “In Between Exits” While Backpacking South East Asia

Of all the people I’ve met during my time as a musician and a documentarian of music, few have impressed me as much as Brett Newski, former frontman of now-defunct Madison,WI band The Nod.

The Media – Live At The Annex

Madison band the media. (I didn’t forget to capitalize, that’s how they spell it, period and all) has a sound that seems modern, yet still conjures up vague musical impressions from my pre-teen years. Hard rocking guitars, catchy vocal melodies and danceable drumbeats.

The Nod “Night Sky After The Rain” Official Music Video!

The Nod has been on my radar for awhile now since last summer when I filmed them at the Mifflin St. Block Party (video below). At that time they came across as a competent and catchy act that was good for some summer rock fare.
