Featured February Artist – Rachel Brown

An awesome video with a very catchy song. Rachel sings so well and this young couple is beautiful. This song is great for Valentines Day and has been a popular choice for a number of commercials lately.

Check out Bumblebee by Rachel Brown below. Don’t forget to comment if you like the video or have any suggestions for our March featured artist.

November Featured Artist: Evanescence

Yes, I do realize Evanescence is from the 90’s (known albums in the 2000’s), but who doesn’t love the 90’s??? I still love their song “My Immortal.” The band is still listed as a top 5 choice of female-lead bands on a number of lists. Their newest album “Evanescence,” was released in late 2011 and the band has been touring since.

Don’t forget to check out Evanescence’s newest album. The song, “My Heart is Broken,” was played on the radio back in October 2011 so you may recognize it. As of now, Evanescence can mainly be seen playing in Europe and other countries, leaving United States fans just that brief stint from July to September to see Evanescence (which is long gone now). The band will be reportedly taking another break.

Fun fact: Did you know that Ben Moody, the former lead guitarist, had originally wrote My Immortal? Amy Lee, the lead singer, helped him edit it though. The song is what made the producer at their (then) record label want to sign them. Told you it was a great song 🙂

On another note, while Evanescence fell off the music train for a while there, Flyleaf emerged. What do you think about Flyleaf’s sound in comparison to Evanescence?

New Paramore Music

Has anyone heard Paramore’s new song “Monster?” My opinion, it sounds similar to the original Paramore. For those who didn’t hear Paramore separated and a few new members have been added.

Songs and bands

I have to write a song on a cosmology topic and Chris is going to play the guitar and record it for my class… yes I know it’s extremely nerdy but that’s how it goes yo! Speaking of songs, did you ever notice that it’s 10 x easier to write a song when you’re mad then when you’re happy? Or is that just me? Maybe I’m exceptionally emo? haha.

In more important news, we are most likely giving out free gift cards or tickets at our next show this SATURDAY AT THE TAJ MAHAL EXPRESS IN ANAHEIM! FURTHER DETAILS ON ALMOSTDAWN.COM UNDER THE SHOW TAB! So if you come you might get a treat 🙂

Oh and band news: If you did not already know, Paramore lost two of its members (I was extremely sad). However, they have an EP Summer Tour album from the civic tour up for grabs if you’re a member of the site paramore.net! Happy Winnings!


See you all Saturday!!!
