The Sharp Things, multi-member indie pop ensemble (emerging, somewhat, from their long-held ‘symphonic pop’ pigeon hole) are proud to announce the premiere of their latest album, The Truth Is Like The Sun by Magnet Magazine.
The band has once again stepped in to support indie record stores and are providing them with their new track “Ordinary Love,” which they recorded for the upcoming film Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, backed with a never-before-heard rendition of their song “Breathe.”
Acclaimed Cincinnati-based artist development and promotion outfit, The Counter Rhythm Group, is proud to introduce MUSICIANS’ DESK REFERENCE: an online platform designed to help artists progress through today’s music industry – from starting out and recording to promoting and touring, with an emphasis on strategies ranging from DIY to professional business and servicing.
There are a lot of awards given out. And the ones that mean the most are given by the people who know what they’re talking about.
