Mostly derived from the several reviews, articles both in print and on the web:
Blues, indie, classic rock, all coexisting as one in the passion-, soul-driven four-piece band Mergence — a band that will not only draw you in, but keep you on your toes and soles, while you sway with every note.
Compared to the likes of The Black Keys, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and Pink Floyd, it is undeniable that Mergence's distinctive trait is the passion and soul infused in the performance of each track.
The bands meditative lyrics are as raw as its sound, threading themes of life, love, sex and death. Their tracks evoke a strong reaction from their devout, diverse following, from young to old and from all walks of life. With an earthy, catchy sound, Mergence is as real as it gets. Their live shows and performances are an unequivocal match to the quality of their tracks and album — because they're recorded mostly live, too — packaged into a lustfully smooth sound, collaboratively and effortlessly produced by the band's diverse members, including vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Adam Bruce, Yod on guitar, Brandon Shupe on bass and Jason Roedl rounding out the rhythm section on the drums.
THE THROUGH & THROUGH GOSPEL REVIEW LP RELEASE (FINAL SHOW)
I mainly play and sing and write for the band Gospel Claws, but in my spare time wrote and recorded this album off and on over a period of 5 years.
I recorded a Gospel album using a computer, 1970's reel to reel tape machine and a cassette recorder. It was mastered by Bob Hoag at Flying Blanket Recording in Mesa, AZ. the album is on itunes or here http://thethroughthroughgospelreview.bandcamp.com/album/the-through-through-gospel-review
OF THE PAINTED CHOIR
Of the Painted Choir bring their infection brand of nostalgic rock to the valley of the sun. A new branch from the Tugboat tree, OTPC is guaranteed to provide the same sort of addictive fruit from whence their branches grew. Their debut EP "Lula," only a month old, has contributed well to our music community and makes the Sonoran desert feel and sound lush.
