Up and coming country star Lance Curtis recently released his rockin' new single "Home Of The Free" and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the track. Here is the story:
"Land Of The Free" was inspired by the idea of taking all the '90s country hits I grew up on and combining them into telling a story in a song. I was honored to have shared the writing room for this song with my friends Taylor Marie Wagner and her husband Chris Powers. We knew as soon as we wrote that last word to the song, that "Land Of The Free" was special. It's just altogether a fun upbeat party song. (continue)

Bokassa released their long-awaited new album "Molotov Rocktail" this week and to celebrate we asked vocalist and guitarist Jorn Kaarstad to tell us about the song "Low (and Behold)". Here is the story:
That song has been around since around 2014 I think. Or at least some parts of it. We played it live many years ago in another form or shape but I never got it to pop. I was never completely satisfied with it until recently when I added the new introriff/chorus and the dynamic bridge and outro. So I guess I rewrote everything but the lyrics and the verses, which has been around forever. The piano at the end and the horns makes it pop even more imo as well. (continue)
