On October 16th the Indy music scene received a great gift from Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery in the form of their newest LP project, Alyosha. After playing over 400 shows spanning more than 40 states, the folk collective’s lead vocalist and creative mind, Joshua Powell, decided it was time to create something new – something he wanted to hear. The Indy-based band decided to trek into uncharted musical territory from the band’s previous releases to explore the realm of psych-folk music. Alyosha is a stunningly creative work that provides a carefully crafted musical journey everyone deserves to enjoy.
Jon McLaughlin returns to tug at all the hopeless romantic’s heart strings with his latest piano-pop ballad “Before You.” It’s been almost two years since Hoosier singer-songwriter Jon McLaughlin partnered with PledgeMusic and allowed fans to help select the tracks for his fourth album, Holding My Breath. And last November McLaughlin released his widely successful holiday EP that went on to top the iTunes holiday music charts. And just recently, McLaughlin announced, via his website, plans to release his fifth full length album and upcoming Like Us tour this fall.
