Chicago singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jared Rabin just released his album "Chasing the Light", and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the single "Tunnel's End". Here is the story:
Musically, "Tunnel's End" is a familiar blues form that is found all over American music. It is somewhat disguised by the major key, a few extra bars here and there, and an additional section as the chorus, but a 12 bar blues is definitely the musical foundation of the song. (continue)

Southern New England rockers Junro are releasing their "Matches
EP this week and to celebrate we asked them to tell us about the title track, "Matches". Here is the story:
From a song-writing perspective for the EP, Matches was the biggest struggle for us. When working with Andrew Groves (Arcane Roots) on the pre-production, we ended up having the most revisions for this track. So many, in fact, we ended up losing count after 20 demo versions. There were several parts of the original versions of the song that we thought were awesome that ultimately got scrapped to make the song as a whole flow a lot better. We were very skeptical, but in the end, the final version of the song turned out so good, that all of it was worth it. (continue)
