Artist of the Day: River Matthews

Posted by Greg on Jun 28, 2017 in Music

The unexpected ones are always those that deliver the biggest punch. So it was that the EP Sunshine by Britain’s River Matthews came across the SITH inbox this morning. Sure glad it did. Matthews is a former music therapist who has recently dabbled into commercial music. For this the music world should be thankful. Recently featured on BBC’s Radio 2 as Jo Whiley’s New Favourite Thing, he has also supported Rag n’ Bone Man on his fall UK tour. Read more…

One to Watch: Tauren Wells

Posted by Greg on Jun 11, 2017 in Music

One of our favorite songs released this year is the spirit-filled “Hills and Valleys,” from Houston worship artist Tauren Wells. Richly produced, velvety smooth and featuring first-rate vocals from Wells, the song has the opportunity to make a dent on more than just the CCM charts. Wells is currently opening for both Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie this summer. With that kind of exposure, one has to think Wells’ best days are ahead of him. “Hills and Valley” is the lead single from an album due out later this year. If the album sounds anything like this single, it will be one to purchase before year’s end.

Posted by Greg on Jun 6, 2017 in Music

In the ever-widening cadre of American Idol contestants, few shone as bright as Utah’s David Archuleta. Nearly a decade removed from his runner-up appearance in the 2008 season, Archuleta is quietly staying under the radar, releasing quality albums that few are paying attention to. His latest release, Orion, might very well turn that tide. Read more…

British singer-songwriter Nick Mulvey has always been a favorite of this blog. His 2014 debut album First Mind went woefully ignored here in the States and two years removed from that album, he is back with his sophomore follow-up, due out later this year. Read more…

Zac Brown Band Misses the Mark……Again

Posted by Greg on May 19, 2017 in Music

On paper this was supposed to be the album that fixed everything. The one to quiet the naysayers, silence the critics and reengage those who were so taken aback by their genre-hopping most recent album. On paper, Welcome Home, Zac Brown Band’s sixth studio release should be a home-run. Studio maestro Dave Cobb was at the helm, the band returned to a more roots-based sound more like their debut The Foundation. Read more…

Thanks to the fine folks at Big Machine, “Drinkin’ Problem,” the latest single from Texas trio Midland made its way through the SITH inbox. Hot damn are we glad it did. Have ya’all heard this song? Quite frankly, it doesn’t get any better than this. Many have already predicted a bright future for this band and with a song this intoxicating, its easy to see why. “Drinkin’ Problem” is old-school, breezy and ridiculously catchy. Read more…

Ones to Watch: Nashville’s New Respects

Posted by Greg on Mar 17, 2017 in Music

It’s always a great thing to receive an unexpected surprise at the most opportune of times. While battling a pretty severe head cold last week, the debut EP Here Comes Trouble by Nashville quartet The New Respects found its way to the Step Inside This House headquarters. Knowing absolutely nothing about the band, curiosity was instantly piqued. Heck, their publicist even threw in a free t-shirt. We’re digging this. Read more…
