Ducado Vega and Zenya Vi, “Blindfold” “Blindfold” is the perfect blending of what Ducado and Zenya are: a funky yet rocking mix that draws equal parts influence from Prince and Evanescence.  Actually, that statement isn’t accurate.  The song is a perfect blending of what they were.  Their new EP, Black OuT, looks to be the […]

Matt Tedder, “Down the Road” Last night, Matt Tedder proved that he knows how to put on a show.  Of course, I can’t give all the credit to Tedder.  His entire band was spot on, with drummer Matt Mabe and harmonica player Paul Harrington standing out in particular.  But if you missed it, don’t feel […]
