With a soulful, bluesy voice that draws frequent comparisons to Bonnie Raitt and Janis Joplin, Grace Potter and her band, The Nocturnals, are clearly ready for the big time.

The Hiders

The Hiders hail from Cincinnati and there's a good reason why they list Neil Young on their MySpace page as the first of many influences on their new album, Valentine. {readmorelink}Read More...{/readmorelink}

So who is Gnarls Barkley? It seems that, in the music world, Gnarls Barkley is always nearby yet impossible to find. The membership rolls of both the Atlanta hip-hop collective Dungeon Family and Athens, Georgia's psychedelic enclave Elephant Six list Barkley as an affiliate, but mention him to either group and they'll shoot each other frightened looks and start talking basketball. {readmorelink}Read More...{/readmorelink}

Britain's Guillemots are a young band greatly skilled at fusing unique sonic textures to their catchy and uplifting music. {readmorelink}Read More...{/readmorelink}

Anyone who's seen or heard James Hunter perform is already hip to his remarkable talents as a singer, guitarist and songwriter. This includes Van Morrison who asserts, "James is one of the best voices, and best kept secrets, in British R&B and Soul. Check him out." {readmorelink}Read More...{/readmorelink}

For a band no one outside of New York had heard before June 2005, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have certainly done well for themselves. Their success is even more impressive when you consider the fact that they aren't signed to a record label,

KT Tunstall is a sparkling new songwriter with Chinese blood, a Scottish heart, great legwarmers and a cool name - "well, it's got a bit more attitude than Kate which just says farmer's daughter to me," she laughs.

Listening to Danielia Cotton, you're bound to believe: Black is rock and roll.

As the daughter of a jazz singer, Danielia grew up in a small New Jersey town.

Blue Merle is a band that doesn't simply defy expectations; it renders them irrelevant. Despite its mostly acoustic instrumentation, the band is well practiced at the art of catching an audience unaware and transporting it to a place of pure rock pleasure.
