The mellow mood of the music has a captivating embrace. Fans of Pink Floyd and Maroon 5 will rejoice with the discovery of this new band. If you're an old school rocker from the era of Dire Straights, then you should take a moment to hear what this band is composing.

The lyrical content is uplifting and positive. Thought-provoking music is always a great way to strengthen your soul and reinforce the day to day lifestyle that we all strive to achieve.

Together this team of talented musicians have combined forces to write some of the most powerful and emotion filled songs that this writer has heard in decades.

Justin Fawsitt | Preposthumous

It's Thursday and a great day for listening to new music.  My recommendation today is Justin B Fawsitt: https://soundcloud.com/justin-b-f

Justin writes a lot of original music. His style of music blends rock, blues, jazz, fusion, and contemporary pop into a sound that is extremely unique. Born and raised in Ireland, Justin has developed a deep passion for his homeland and it saturates the mood of his music. His years here in the USA have been inspiration to blend the experiences of both lands and develop the character of his tunes with a distinct flare for all the roads he has been down.

We've spent many days in the studio working on recording and mixing his latest album, PREPOSTHUMOUS. If you like the music, you can buy a copy of the CD from Justin's website: http://fawsitt.com/

The CD came out great and would be a great addition to any music collection. Each song has it's own style and will move you!

 P.S. Stephanie & I did backing vocals on the track "Two Black Eyes"

Third Thought | Gentleman's Curse Lifted

Old school punk, folk, & rock fans, you have some new music to get excited about. Third Thought is a band from Fremont, OH that has been inspired by some of the greatest musicians of all time like the Beatles, The Who, The Replacements, The Clash, Alice in Chains, & System of a Down, just to name a few. Third Thought is the songwriting platform for singer-songwriter/guitarist Matt Ingles. Mat has been playing guitar and writing songs since the age of 14. Matt has always been heavily influenced by various genres of rock and music in general ranging from Thrash Metal to 60s pop, and anything else he finds interesting, passionate, and composed uniquely.

The band is currently mixing their debut album, Speaking Vibes, and should be available in the very near future. Gentlemans Curse Lifted is the debut track from the album and it has tones that remind me of Marcy Playground's "Sex and Candy" with just a touch of influence from the alternative punk scene that was raging in the late '90s. The raw vocal sound is the first thing that grips you and draws you into the music. The musical composition is accustomed to having that rock edge with the dial pulled back ever so slightly to the folk sound of the industry. Fans of WEEN will be overjoyed that the guitar solo has moments that will take you back to the days of Chocolate and Cheese. Definitely a band you should take a moment to hear and find out if you've just found your new favorite band.
