Many lasting impressions this band leaves behind in their wake after a show or just listening to their very stylish professional sound.

Airport Impressions flying all the way in from the tiny Mediterranean island nation of Malta. There's no where in the world that's safe from the clutches of the Halshack!!..lol

Let it Shine.... off their 2nd album release "Marietta". Amazing song with thundering drums and stellar vocal work as well as a diverse fantastic rhythm section, its no wonder this band was my mystery spotlight for Episode 7.

Be sure to check out their excellent spotlight article written by master blogger M. Stuart Persson and be sure to take a listen to episode 7 where I featured 4 songs by this talented quartet from Malta!!

I swear this is the next BIG U2 type band. There hasnt been a U2 since well.... U2 (lol) but they have that sound and festival fare. Look for this band to be flying to airports all over the world and leaving good impressions in their wake. Also a little birdie told me I'm going to be featured in their EPK going out to several industry leaders and record labels for supporting their band and you'll find a nice quote from me and my website information.

Thank you to the management staff and the band members for supporting and teaming up with the Halshack.

Please see their other track for more band info.

Excellent mainstream pop/rock sound from this up and coming vying act from Tennessee. Really good "radio ready" band that has shared the stage with several touring bands including American Idol winner Danny Gokey.

The guys have just released a new single for June 2017. See what you think of "The Civics"...thanks for rockin' the Halshack!

Civilized Tears (Nashville, TN)...Blue Sunrise

The band and the singer in this group are quite brilliant. The different levels in this song are very complex, it shows a fanatical skill for writing and song arrangement. The vocalist is British and it works very well in his favor. He has a fantastic range and with Civilized Tears, they have played numerous concerts an even opened for National acts. Radio play and distribution across major outlets.

There's not enough good comments I can make about this song, the group, and the man behind the band Timothy Bennet-Smith. Ive had the pleasure of promoting and getting to know this act over the last couple of years. Tim has been busy helping his wife Bambi ,who is also the band's bass player, raise their 3 children. We will hopefully see this band get back into the "groove" of things as their children grow and time will allow Civilized Tears to be reborn. Until then, help them keep the dream alive and we will be waiting for their clandestine return to the music-sphere.

I feel this song represents the very best of the bands playlist but also the rest of their songs are very good too. Will be featuring some more of this band in future episodes of my show.

Be sure to find everything halshack at these links. listen to an epidose, play some songs, hit the download buttons, get the app on Google and Itunes, give us likes and comments and plylist adds. All these things help keep us up in rank on the charts.

What an excellent rock band, primed and ready for the masses. This band has a solid footing in the bay area and continues to reach outward setting their horizons on national success.

They have a handful of radio ready well produced tunes for the commercial market and could do well on the rockwaves in any city USA.

Be on the lookout for more from this rising quartet out of Cali, as they are sure to impress many on their rise to possible fame.

The Family (Greensboro, NC) ....Stray

Best known in the area for their rockabilly meets bluegrass head on into a culture shock of melding musical styles that is "The Family". Ive seen this band "live" with Narrow Plains on Memorial Day weekend 2015. It was an excellent stroll down a musical journey of pop dance bluegrass and Americana all melded into a tye-dyed frenzy of folklore and good times.

This track "Stray" strays away from the norm of their playlist but I feel it shows the pure raw vocal strengths and abilities of this group. It seems to outshine the rest of their songs but not to downplay the bands other releases. Just really dang good in my opinion.

See what you think of local homegrown favorites from Greensboro, NC "the Family". They have been in rotation on the show in past episodes 6 and 7. Go back and listen. Good shows indeed.

Thanks for rockin the Halshack!

Pretty cool punk rock band out of the UK that Ive been watching grow for years since our time spent on Roadrunner Records website pushing bands. They have quite a meaty bass player that I find has an extraordinary skill on the 4-string. It shows through in alot of their tracks.

Do suggest you keep a watchful eye on this quartet from Coventry. They are sure to widen some ears and brighten some eyes as they build their name and following playing around England.

North Carolina's premiere reggae band hailing from the college town (East Carolina Univ) of Greenville. These guys have played numerous shows and have enjoyed opening for many well-known reggae touring bands. If you're ever spending some time in the eastern part of NC, I suggest catching them out live. Be a fun time.

Born from the ashes in the breakup of Cali pop kings Walla. Vocalist Jonathan Kim and keyboard/backing vocals Gabriel Rodriguez, citing creative differences packed up their toys and headed for a new sandbox to play in.

The duo were quite the creative driving force behind Walla and they have really dug deep on this new album and found the "pop" spark that made Walla so famous. They drew from all 4 of their past ep's to bring us one awesome stellar 6 song ep "Audio Paradisio" that represents the very best of Walla and builds upon that sound to bring us an all new "pop masterpiece".

I swear if this cd were to fall in the hands of the right major label these guys would be multi platinum stars.

Well... another homerun from the Halshack!! Were batting a thousand...come root for us to #1 show on all of Podomatic.
