Re: “Junkyard Fieldtrip shows beautiful restraint on debut album

Junkyard Fieldtrip is quickly becoming one of Rochester's most popular bands for many good reasons. They are not only a super-talented group, but some of the scene's most humble and warm-hearted people. They all are very down-to-earth, approachable and friendly. I have come to appreciate the brilliance of Mike Gladstone's artistry over the years, and watching him perform live never gets old. I consider lead vocalist Rob Smith among the best male leads I have ever seen. His versatility and range are stunning. Go out to see this band whenever you can (they play the Fairport area frequently), and you'll surely enjoy what they do, from their high-quality originals to their stunning covers of bands like Led Zeppelin and The Eagles.

Re: “VOTE NOW: Best of Rochester 2014 Primary Ballot

EVERYONE SHOULD be aware that a young Rochester artist has made it onto The Voice (on NBC). Watch beginning September 22nd, when the new season debuts. The singer/songwriter is AMANDA LEE PEERS. I happen to know her well and she is very deserving. The program does not allow contestants to divulge details, but she has publicly announced her involvement. I have reason to believe we will see her on the televised portions, and my hunch is she advances beyond the blind auditions.

Tune in on 9/22 but also check out her work online in the interim: http://thedriftwoodsailors.com/ She is also on YouTube, Facebook, ReverbNation, etc. Hooray for Amanda and for Rochester. More local musicians are poised to break out soon (like my pal Alyssa Trahan of East Rochester) SUPPORT LOCAL MUSIC - help these artists hold onto their dreams!
