Power Pyramid - The God Drums

Power Pyramid doesn’t have much patience for nonsense. That appears to be the takeaway from the Oklahoma City quintet’s last 10 months, which brought The God Drums in September, the Insomnia EP in January and its latest, self-titled effort in July.

TJ Mayes - "When Love Comes Down"

’50s era rock ’n’ roll had been long overdue for a rebirth. Thankfully, the stockpile of capable luminaries has not been in short supply over the past few years.

Boare - "playdatshit"

The world is in the midst of an electronic music renaissance, and you find most of this boon of producers laying claim to the club-friendly, bass-dropping variety, holing up in the the free-flowing world of hip-hop beatmaking or pitching their tent on the out-there, boundary-pushing EDM camp.

Broncho - "Class Historian"

Broncho has never been hurting in the hook department. The success of the trio’s 2011 debut, Can’t Get Past the Lips, was predicated mostly on its ability to marry melodies with kinetic guitar riffs and anarchic energy. Yet we’ve heard nothing to the degree of pure pop catchiness on display in “Class Historian,” the new single from Broncho’s upcoming sophomore album, Just Enough Hip to Be Woman.

Manmade Objects - Monuments

No one wants to be forgotten; everyone wants some sort of legacy, a mark they leave behind as they exit this life for whatever lies beyond.

And for as long as there has been death, there have been monuments — whether austere or understated, abstract or concrete, prominent or tucked away in private — erected by the ones they loved to assure that remembrance, at least for a time.

Carrie Webber is part rock, pop, folk, blues, funk and country. Even if she's hard to label, one well-respected local music source said she's the real deal.
 
"Whatever Carrie decides to sing " no matter what type of music " she has the versatility and the voice to do it and do it well," said Charlie Rayl, a longtime music instructor who has performed with Webber since 2003. "I've worked with some pretty talented singers over the years, and I can honesty say no one is better than Carrie."
 
NO IDOL
At 29, the Davis native admits she is too old to be a pop idol, but that is not going to stop her from pursuing her dreams.
 
"I suppose compared to a lot of people in this business, I'm still a newcomer. One thing I am always trying to do is grow as an artist, and I've been so fortunate to be surrounded by so many great influences," she said.
 
NO LOOKING BACK
In 2006, Webber released her first independent solo album ("This Time"), as well as a new CD ("forever and six conversations...") with her band ReVeL.
 
"It took a while for me to build the confidence to do this, but there is no turning back now," Webber said. "I love it. I love to sing. It's what I do, and I'm passionate about it."
 
Having watched Webber come into her own, Rayl believes the sky's the limit.
 
"Carrie is one of those one-in-a-million girls," he said. "I honestly believe she has a great future in music." "Jay C. Upchurch
