Singer-songwriter, Ryan Cabrera is making a comeback with a new single and upcoming EP. It’s been almost 7 years since he’s released an album. That's 7 years of his fans listening to his mega hits "On The Way Down" and "True," over and over again. “For me, even before my first record, I was playing non-stop shows. I love being on the stage. I can't not do it. I can't take six months off because I love the live aspect of playing and the interaction with fans. The last record I put out was in 2008, since then I probably did over 200 shows a year. So, continuing to write a record and recording...

 Exclusive Premiere Of My Silent Bravery's New Music Video, 'For
Some of the most alluring musicians are those who aren’t signed to a major label. Matthew Wade, best known as My Silent Bravery, is one of those alluring independent musicians – a singer/songwriter to be exact. While he may not be a household name, he should be, believe that!

Despite being under the radar, My Silent Bravery has no shortage of notable accomplishments where his resume is concerned. As an indie artist, he’s released four albums, spanning from 2007 (Uncharted Territory) to his most recent, Diamond From Coal, released August 11, 2014. Diamond From Coal features “Forever.” ...

Florida Georgia Line Captures Their First No. 1 Spot On Billboar
For a third week, country rules the top spot of the Billboard 200. Last week it was Jason Aldean’s Old Boots, New Dirt (who settles for #2 this week). This week’s honors go to Florida Georgia Line who sells a strong 197,000 copies of Anything Goes. Anything Goes is the sole album to sell more than 100,000 copies this week and outpaced the second place album by more than 100,000 copies. Guess Tyler and Brian have something to celebrate – as if they weren’t celebrating already.

Even though the numbers continue to stink, there are plenty of new albums being dropped by many notable artis...

T.I. Returns To Top-Notch Form On ‘Paperwork’

October 22nd, 2014 2:20pm EDT
T.I. - Paperwork
Could anyone possibly doubt ‘the King’ – aka T.I. – on his latest studio album, Paperwork? Total poppycock – the biggest load of BS ever, right? Well not totally. The Atlanta MC’s last couple of albums has fallen short of the glory of his best. Sure, 2012 album Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head had more goods than the previous, questionable No Mercy (“Trap Back Jumpin’” was enough to seal the deal there), but the top-echelon status of KING (2006) and Paper Trail (2008) were still missing. Paperwork, hence, returns T.I. to top-notch form.

T.I. gets “things poppin’” from the jump, litera...
