Dave Beste’s Top 10 Favorite Songs

Rival Sons recently finished recording their latest album in Nashville and did so this time with a new bassist, Dave Beste. Drummer Michael Miley said, ““Recording with a new Bassist [David Beste] was quite refreshing. Anytime you replace such an integral member, it can be stressful, and sometimes, just downright doesn’t gel. We got some DEEP, PHAT grooves […]

Davy Knowles Blog #4: Having Fun With It

In this last installment of my blog I wanted to talk about what I think is the most important aspect of writing, and music in general. Sometimes, in the frustration of the creative process, (or the frustration of being in this industry full stop!) it’s easy to lose sight of what got you into making […]

We’ve already covered quite a bit of ground in this little blog series, and it’s been enormous fun for me to ramble on at you about my personal take on the creative process. I wanted to write a little bit this week about influences, and how I relate them to peanut butter and jam sandwiches. […]

Davy Knowles Blog #2: Spark

Dan Patlansky Blog #8: Wrapping up the European Tour

After the last blog entry I had two days off in Munich before my last performance with Everlast. On the morning of the show at Backstage our German photographer took me down to her friend’s house, just outside Munich for a photo shoot. On arrival she mentioned that her friend was one of the biggest […]

Dan Patlansky Blog #7: Kicking off the European Tour

There’s nothing like a good 26 hours of travelling to kick off a tour. I left my house at 3 pm in Johannesburg, and arrived at our first port of call, Münster, Germany at 4 pm the next day. With no sleep and a small vomit at Dubai airport, we were finally there. For my […]

Marcel Ziul Blog: USA Tour

About a month ago I got the chance to play a few concerts in Los Angeles. It was the first time I hopped on a plane with my guitar and traveled abroad to promote an album. The concerts were very different from what I would imagine a major label artist’s ‘world tour’ to be like […]
