Not many artists have been able to make the music that makes them happy to record and survive for 28 years, not like Sonic Youth has.

Some argue Goo was their best work. Their third official release Bad Moon Rising is the Sonic Youth record that garnered enough attention and respect from the underground scene. Enabling a long standing relationship with an industry that has spit out and chewed up many an artist like Sonic Youth None of us yet have the courage to take it on, how bout you?
Heather Greene is a Singer, Songwriter and Scotch Whisky Master who combines two great passions into one unforgettable experience. Her new album, Sweet Otherwise, will be available in October. Here’s some music picks from Ms. Greene.
Ursa Minor — This NYC-based band is led by the gorgeous and talented Michelle Casillas who has as a sexy voice reminiscent of Chrysie Hynde and an edgy, kick-ass band that can play in the most relaxed yet at the same time completely pulled together way.

Not only can she write great songs, and play guitar, she’s also an amazing sound engineer keyboard player and (so I hear) drummer. Check out “Come to Me.” Read more
