Soup J5 has worked hard for what he has become in life. Very Hard. You can easily see the fruits of his labor in the form of Jurassic 5. But maintaining is just as hard as achieving. And Soup proves that he can do that just as well with his solo effort, ‘Still In Fullee Love’. The EP is stellar. But that’s just the beginning. He also has a full-length album titled ‘Free, White & 21’ waiting in the wings.
In this interview, we get a grip on how Soup began his career as well as how he continues to stay so original in today’s music world. It’s a hard feat but, as you can hear with his new single ‘All Around The World’, Soup’s talents are eternal. Enjoy!

Completely pondering and out of the box, Hegarty’s new single titled “I Only Dream In Black & White” is a modern melancholic guitar driven melody fit as the soundtrack for any road trip. By taking a hook and melding it into catchy chord progression, the band successfully achieves that perfect moment when a song becomes the soundtrack to that perfect memory.
Hegarty was formed in 2014 when David Hegarty, Waka Stafford and Chris McKeown decided to record a few songs they had been working on together. Igga Cousins then joined and soon after recruited Alex Tweedle along the way to make our line up complete and it hasn’t changed much since. Things have gone really well for us so far and we’ve had a fair bit of airplay on many radio stations including local Liverpool stations, going national in Scotland and even international in USA and France.Our debut album is now complete and new single “I only dream” was recently released with

One thing I love about my job, as a musician, is meeting true musicians. What I mean by that is that there are people who are in the business because they want the fame or the perceived fortune that comes with making a mark in the music industry. The problem is, the music industry is not what you see on Empire. What it is, is an industry that will not treat you kindly unless music is something you really want to, and even then said fame and fortune are fleeting and rare. So it’s times like interviewing such rare talent as Valerie Troutt that makes this not a job. To listen to her is to love her. She is a true musician in a group of true musicians in the form of Labyrinth Lounge.
Check out our interview with Valerie above and check out our review of their debut single titled ‘Trouble Won’t Last’, from their album ‘Porgy’ HERE.

In the age of instant gratification, Colossal Street Jam are decades in the making. And that usually makes the best art. Colossal Street Jam has a phenomenal new album titled “Living Free”. Phenomenal is an understatement. This album must be listened to, not heard. It’s that good. And today we get to meet one of the minds behind the music in the form of Gene Potts, frontman, and vocals of Colossal Street Jam. This band has a lot of sticks in the fire and are just getting started, and all with 20 plus years of experience in their sound. Check out the interview above and stay tuned for good things from Colossal Street Jam!
About Colossal Street Jam
Mix the church-honed vocals of Gene Potts with the guitar fire of Sal Marra, the pulsing bass of Anthony Flora, the war-hammer drums of Dave Halpern and the one-man festival that is Eric Safka on keys, and you get Colossal Street Jam. Colossal Street Jam is a 5 piece band from Red Bank, NJ that plays a 70’s style brand of infectious and melodic rock and roll.
CSJ has shared the stage with many great artists throughout their career including: Robbie Krieger, Kings X, The Drive-by Truckers, The Hold Steady, Gov’t Mule, Johnny Winter, Sebastian Bach, Bruce Dickinson, Screamin Cheetah Wheelies, Ritchie Blackmore, Steve Morse, Zebra, Deep Purple, Clarence Clemons and many more!
“At the end of the day, no matter what is going on, we did this for us. In the old days, we did this to be famous, to make money, and to be rock stars. Now, we’re doing this for us, and I think that’s why it’s working and getting a great response.”
