Friday New Releases – September 6th

Summer is over and School is back in session, now we need some new music.  Who am I kidding, I don’t need a reason to want new music. Every week is a good week for that.  However, this week is a little limited on the releases.  There are quite a few, but not a lot to excite my senses.  There are a few I will check out and they are highlighted in Blue.  Let me know what interests you and what I might have missed.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!

  • A1JK4IW57yL._SS500_  Black Star Riders – Another State of Grace – (Nuclear Blast):  Black Star Riders are back with their fourth studio release and I am eager to hear what is in store as well as a little apprehensive since Damon Johnson is no longer in the band.  He was a big draw.  I will keep an open mind and give it a try as Ricky is still on vocals and Scott is still there as well, but I hate they are only down to 2 of the 5 original members.

  • 61UWCoZUdoL._SX522_  Lindsey Stirling – Artemis – (LindseyStomp Records/BMG):  This young lady plays one mean violin.  I find her to be sensational and always entertaining and I don’t expect this to be any different.  A couple vocal tracks on this one as well with guest Amy Lee and Elle King which should be incredible, but the highlight is always her playing.  If you haven’t checked her out, do yourself a service and do so.

John Snow has been writing about music he loves for a over a year now over at the impressive blog he runs 2Loud2Old. What inspired you to start writing/blogging about music? It was a who inspired m…

For some insight on The Rockin’ Chair I have stolen ( I mean borrowed) his bio from his site so you can have an idea of what to expect from his blog.

Bio: I have been blogging about mainly Stoke City FC over on the Rock ‘N’ Oatcake and am currently News & Reviews Editor at Get Ready To Rock! – my main love in the musical world 🙂

The Rockin’ Chair is a place for me to highlight new and old music. It won’t be just press releases or feature music that would score an average rating, it is more hand picked music. The blog will feature guest writers and contributions from fellow music fans and musicians.

Enjoy!!

Melanie Martinez – Cry Baby – Album Spotlight

Melanie Martinez was on Season 3 of The Voice and Team Adam.  She didn’t win, but she was able to transition to a record deal with Atlantic Records.  Her first full length album is ‘Cry Baby’ and was released last year on August 14, 2015.

I don’t know if I would have listened to this album on my own.  The only reason I really know about her is my oldest daughter.  Melanie is one of her favorite artist.  When we were on vacation a couple weeks ago, we came across her record in the Vinyl section of a store and I let her get it.  And of course on the car ride home, we had to listen to the album (no, not on vinyl as my car is not outfitted with a turntable – we streamed it).
