Icepicks for June - Bad Moon Born

badmoonborn
The good thing about working with a lot of passionate people in this business is people get to know what you like and usually even why. So when the twisted one slides me a "you'll dig this" I tend to pay attention. Recently he introduced me to another Australian band called Bad Moon Born  and their EP Chemical Lullabies . Holy hell this was a "hold the presses" moment as I copied the music to our server and got them into the rotation that very day. Let me explain, this is rare for me. I collect music and about once a month I'll get the new music out there and sure, I'm glad to break my st...

JIBE - Epic Tales of Human Nature

JIBE
This is tough one for me. When I first started Renegade Radio, everything was new and everyone was “the next big thing”. We spent a few years kinda watching the scene and learning all we could about the best local talent and who the ones “on the verge” were.  11 years ago that was JIBE . If you were in a band the last thing you wanted at this time was to have to play a local show the same night they did cause almost everyone went to JIBE. Hell you probably wanted to go see them too. But again, that was 11 years ago. I’ve changed since then. Certainly the band has or they’d not be bac...

icepicks for may - thrilldriver

thrilldriver
While we do have a submissions folder for new music, our recent shift to more nationals coupled with the flood of country, hip hop, rap, and at times what amounts to drunk old men on an older acoustic guitar singing to you in your facebook e-mail, I’ve been thinking maybe it’s time to move away from this and find another way find new music. At this point I believe we’re up to 7gb of “music” that scares me more than entertains. You have to wonder if the people who bother to find our submissions address even bother to listen to see what we play and if they’re a match. Then one day you are sent s...

Icepicks for April - Abacu5

abacu_20170429-231925_1
Abacu5 out of Dallas has been playing the local scene for many years. They also have the distinction of being able to tour in China after being selected as the guest artist for the Shanghia American School playing several live music venues through the area. This month they release their first full length cd, A Long Way to Begin and the sound is a fantastic mix of rock, soulful melodies, and a wide range of sound that simply won't allow the band to be easily classified. Geared more for a thoughtful audience you can certainly turn off the world and tune into some great music. We kick off with Bl...

Richie Kotzen - Salting Earth Review

Richie Kotzen - Salting Earth Review
As strange as it may be, the best way I can explain Richie Kotzen is that he carries a funk rock style of soulful 70s Motown Jazz Rock fusion that can only be described as a brand new yesterday. A déjà vu of new experiences. From his solo work of an amazing now 21 solo albums to joining forces with Mike Portnoy and Billy Sheehan for The Winery Dogs to this 21 st solo effort that redefines the expectations of music for everyone else. It just does. The most amazing things he does in this release, Salting Earth , and his style in general is you remember so many things of your own past associated ...

An Evening with Kenny Youngar

An Evening with Kenny Youngar

“Paris, France.” There’s a lot of questions Kenny Youngar could have answered and those words never would have come to mind. But as usual in interviews, you start a little basic and grow out from there. Leave it to Kenny to start anything “basic” when asked the simple question of “Where did ‘Kenny the Drummer’ begin”? Laughing, Kenny backed up a bit and took a sip of beer and clarified himself. “I actually got my first drum set in middle school while living in Paris, France” Youngar decided to explain. “I rarely played even then because my neighbor played and he was good and I was embarrassed ...
