In his own words to the music blog, The Bluegrass Situation:  ”I never really gave myself the opportunity to grow like I have in the past couple years. I never really cared to learn about myself — my flaws, my strengths. I’ve been sober for long enough to where I see things coming back to me. I see the fog of the chaos is only getting thicker, and that scares me. My life seems to be more ‘normal’ nowadays … less interesting, if you’re asking me. Music is my last escape. It’s my adventure in a day that may otherwise seem mundane. Read more

Hookahville returns home to Frontier Ranch in Pataskala, Ohio, located just outside of Columbus. There the rolling hills and woods provide the perfect setting for camping, music, and fun for hundreds of music lovers and their families over the holiday weekend.

Original member Dave Katz explains the importance of this milestone: “Twenty-five years is a long time to be doing anything. With rock bands, only a fraction make it, so to get to this point in our career is really special. It’s very humbling, and we feel very lucky that people still enjoy our music. Trends come and go, and we’re still here. That shows what we’ve created is time tested. There is a lot to be proud of!” Read more

Nashville, TN – Rockingham, the debut solo album from American Aquarium front man BJ Barham will be released on August 19th. Rockingham is an intensely personal collection of small-town narratives which reflect upon the meaning of home, and the realities of growing up in rural America.

Rockingham was written in a matter of days, while Barham was overseas with American Aquarium, the acclaimed alt-country act he’s fronted for over a decade. The band was less than two hours away from Paris when the terrorist attacks of November 13th, 2015 occurred, causing a flurry of concern from family and friends at home. Barham had an emotional response that prompted him to ponder the people and places who had impacted his life in fundamental ways and the album was born. Read more

Young The Giant‘s highly anticipated third studio album Home of the Strange is out today via Fueled By Ramen.  The album has already hit No. 1 on iTunes Alternative chart and top 3 overall.  With much of the band being first generation Americans or immigrants themselves, the new album broaches the theme of American and immigrant identity.  As lead singer Sameer Ghadia recently explained to NPR’s Weekend Edition, “I think it’s maybe my narrative as a first-generation American. We have a lot of ties to India and that heritage and the tradition and the philosophy, cultural practices. But then, you know, we grew up here…And so home of the strange, I think, is the place in between those two places.”  You can listen to the entire NPR interview here. Read more
