Video: Winstons – “Without You” *soulful blues rock

March 10th, 2017 by | Alternative/Indie, Music Video, Rock |

unnamed 600x600 Video: Winstons   Without You *soulful blues rockWinstons is a garage-soul duo out of Virginia, residing in Brooklyn. They do love songs, blue songs, and dance songs with drums, guitar, harmonies, and a harmonica.

The lead singer sounds like the lead singer from Kings Of Leon with the soulful rock melodies of The Black Keys and Alabama Shakes. Their sound has drawn comparisons to Screaming’ Jay Hawkins and The Cramps. I really like what they are bringing in “Without You” and can’t wait to hear more, one of my new favorite bands!

Watch the video to “Without You” below.

Introducing EQ *hip-hop/R&B from NOVA

December 27th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, R&B |

11bhlvq 600x403 Introducing EQ *hip hop/R&B from NOVAEQ is a rapper from Richmond, Virginia who is bringing back real hip-hop. From his facebook page:

While his flow is definitely heavily influenced by New York rappers and the modern lyrical underground, the mix of singing transitions between verses and evidence he’s provided showing he’s no novice at R&B gives EQ a unique edge that separates him from artists in the vicinity of his style.

Here’s his latest song, “Somebody Told Me”, which has a smooth R&B hook with solidly dope hip-hop flow over what sounds like an old school beat flipped into something new.
