New artists you need to know, love and support, Says I.

NOTE: because of the array of vids I posted, give it 30 seconds to load them, then the page will scroll smoother.

("NEW" meaning 10 yrs or less, most are much less)

Ok this blog started on an FB thread and a gentleman named Wayne asked me to name one “good band”: that is new music. So I couldn’t just name one as there are so many. So here it goes.

Zen Rizing, I am so stoked that they just got chosen to open for Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger this Friday at the Whiskey, I'll be going to support them and the other 2 are the fringe benefit :)
Ya know half of these newest artists go to other countries and sell out large venues, and here in America, they do small clubs and have 25 to 100 only, because people are too closed minded.
One more NOTE- I don’t like any of these bands because of only one song, it is because of 10-20-30 songs. Another reason that adds to mine and others burning love for these bands is they communicate with their fans, they KNOW the fans are the reason they can keep doing what they love, and I love that about all of them.

If you dig any of these guys, go friend/Like them on their FB pages and let them know I sent you, because word of mouth is the only way artists get any love anymore.

I have met all of these artists and friended many because they only play small clubs, because radio does not play new music anymore, Except KROQ, but they only play their style. We need more stations to intro more new artists, everyone always says theirs no good new music out, when actually there is a shitload, you just gotta go to the small clubs and find them, and its good to know people (like me) who promote the best of the best as much as possible. Cause they deserve the love and we want them to keep making new music, cause they’re so dam good at it.

And some other new musicians who do get radio play (Thank you 106.7 KROQ) , but only 1-2 songs to be sickened of after short time, but have a great library of awesome tunes.

And you know to prove of my great taste. Slash has picked at least 3 of these artists to sing on his latest album. Beth Hart, Ian (Wolfmother), Myles (Alter Bridge)

So what do you think? Do you like any or all of them? Do you know any or all of them?
They deserve to be recognized, I hope you can share this blog or their songs with your friends and get them known. Especially the top half of artists as they have not had radio play here in California, and only get some small town radio stations nationwide.

Peace out and don’t forget to hit the LIKE button on this page. 
Hugs to all.
