Walter here, and I want to start off with a little story. Me and my wife have been listening to Christina Taylor's music for a few years now.

Music Review: Hourglass by YYNOT @YYNOTband

Hourglass Reviewers: Walter and Darlene Hargrave The “years go by like a flash.” There’s “only so many grains in the hourglass.”  Time is not limitless.  I won’t waste the reader’s time here comparing and contrasting YYNOT to those early sounds of Rush.  I’d rather savor this flavor.  YYNOT encased their original lyrics for “Hourglass” in a rhythm of such nostalgia, it makes me giddy.  YYNOT put in a timely amount of practice [...]

Song Review: Hazardous from the album "Jam Theory" Songwriters: Matthew J. Como, Andrew P. Como Review by: Walter and Darlene Hargrave A song’s introduction can be so unique as to be identifiable in the first few notes.  A song that induces vivid imaginings is a form of magical musical art.  “Hazardous” is a serious composition that must have taken a lot of effort and should be appreciated for that alone.   It’s tenderly sung [...]

Constructed in 1936, at the heart the Miracle Mile, the Art Deco former movie theatre was lit up, not by the stars of the Silver Screen, but by LA's own Pop Rock quartet. Along with their usual set of well drilled delights, the band debuted a [...]
