We played Jasy on the last podcast, but that was just a demo she did for somebody. I told Jasy that we would play something that she would want played. The song that we included on this podcast is her real musical style so why not give it a listen?

Song 4: The Scarecrow Revival - "Never Going Back"

Facebook Page

We are Scarecrow Revival.

You'll find us hammering out Americana originals *and a couple very original covers), telling dark tales from the flat-lands.
The Revival is an acoustic trio - but don't confuse "acoustic" with "quiet." We roll through with the subtly of a freight train.

Song 5: - Brandon Norris - "The Big Red Sun" - Excel, Alabama

Facebook Page

Not much about this fella neither! This song is my favorite out of all the songs on the podcast this time. To me he sounds like a dude in his 20s from Cali. Guess I was wrong! The thing is, you can feel his music. Feeling music separates you from other artists and makes you stick out.

Can't stop listening!

I am currently listening to the lineup we are going to be playing next week. You know music is good when you have headphones on and get lost inside. Music is suppose to move you and get you thinking about what the lyrics mean. Some music can take you back to your childhood, spark new ideas for your future, and in some cases, save you from making mistakes.

Podcast will be recorded tomorrow night most likely. I think we have around 9 songs this time around, so it will be almost an hour long! The more episodes we release, the closer we get to our max storage space on SoundCloud. I am going to have to take old episodes down to put new ones up. I am currently looking for a place to store the old ones so we can listen back to all the great artists we have played. If you come across any good hosts that are free, please get in contact with me!
