Celebrating their 33rd Anniversary together, Atlanta-based folk rock act, Drivin N Cryin, have spent most of 2018 on tour. In October 1985 Drivin N Cryin played their first show at Atlanta’s famed 688 Club. The band quickly gained attention for their blistering live shows, and amassed a rabid fanbase in the fertile soil of the late-1980s Southeast music scene. Now, 33 years later, and after releasing four full length albums on Island Records and one on Geffen Records, founding members Kevn Kinney and Tim Nielsen find themselves enjoying a milestone anniversary for the band, having survived the pressures of fame, a shifting musical landscape, multiple lineup changes, and miles of backroads and highways to arrive here.

A singer, song writer, and producer from Broward County, Florida. CatchTwentyTwo breaks away from the accustomed routine of music of today’s times, and instead chooses to focus on what matters most, the expression of emotion in its authentic form. Often soft-spoken and invariably sullen in his vocal style, the pop artist delves into deeper themes of romance, confusion, and anger. We interviewed him too!
“Never sell my soul just to earn a wage”, wise words spoken by AGM boss, RVA Rap Elite creator, and local RVA rapper Radio B in his most recent single “Blackness is Better than Gold.” The video kicks off stating that the price of melanin($350) is worth 6.54 times more than the price of gold($54.23), in hopes for the Black Community to come to the realization their actual self worth is invaluable and priceless. Radio B’s timing couldn’t have been better with the protests against police brutality and systemic racism still going strong and especially because he is from Richmond where the removal of Confederate Statues is on going. It will be a busy week for Radio B as the video dropped on today and he later will be going head to head against another RVA favorite and fellow AGM rapper Michael Millions in the Radio B hosted Aux Wars tournament “The War of the Chords”. His new album “All Art A’int Pretty” drops Friday and he also has something special in store for his fans on Saturday morning.

Struan is an artist from Arlington, who also went to UVA. When asking him about his music, he says, “My music is for late night drives when all you can think about is her, the smell of her hair on a summer evening, nostalgia for just 5 minutes ago, rooftops, and insomnia at 3 AM on your friend’s couch.” His music is very calming, yet also motivating at the same time. It makes the listener feel as if all of their problems are gone for a moment, and that anything is possible.
His newest video, “Over You” dropped on June 12th. It was on Spotify “Fresh Finds” and “Fresh Finds: Pop” and has been really well received thus far. The video was shot in both Austin, and Nashville. The song is about a break up, and the phase of running away from all the fallouts and friends lost through the break up. This song makes you think of past loves, and is a good song to get you “in your feels.” Check out the video below.
