Spend Some Time With Stand Out Artist Sarah Schulte

Sarah_4-29-14_171_small___copy(PCM) Every now and then an artist comes across my desk who really stands out. Sarah Schulte is one of those artists. She has it all, from her songwriting and singing chops to her live performance skills, Sarah is for real.

According to Sarah’s Bio, her music can be described like this, “If the bands Paramore and Evanescence had a baby my music would be the result. Hayley Williams and Amy Lee, both women are strong and amazingly talented and they inspired me to create a sound that would capture and intrigue listeners.”

Sarah loves writing songs that have deep messages, intended to reach out and grab listeners by the heart strings. Songs such as “Getting Away” and “Crimson Lullaby” are two winners from her recent CD which can be found on iTunes.

For a preview of Sarah, I strongly suggest you visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5RzUffOFPc

Sarah explains that she has one simple goal, which is to take all of her stage training and put it into her music career. “I’d love to be a part of a national tour and to entertain thousands of people each night.”

I have a feeling that Sarah will reach that goal in the very near future.

Marilyn Manson Concert Review: He Is The God Of Whatever He Wants To Be!


(PCM) I recently had the privilege to attend Marilyn Manson’s recent “Hell not Hallelujah” tour stop at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA and I can say without a doubt that Manson is looking and sounding the absolute best that he has in years.

He and his band plowed through a blistering 16-song set that featured at least four to five tracks off his recently released new album “The Pale Emperor” as well as the “classics” such as “mOBSCENE”, “New Sh**t”, “Sweet Dreams”, “The Dope Show”, “Rock Is Dead” and of course “The Beautiful People”.


As you can tell by my recent review of The Pale Emperor, I am absolutely in love with Manson’s new album, however hearing these tracks live just took things to a whole new level. Opening the set with his current single “Deep Six” was perfect and I  thoroughly enjoyed hearing “Third Day of A Seven Day Binge”, “Cupid Carries A Gun” and my personal favorite off the new record “The Mephisotopheles of Los Angeles” in the live performance setting.

Much of Manson’s fan base looks up to him as if he is a god, as it was quite apparent by the reaction of the audience at this show and at this point in his career with a stellar new album under his belt Manson is surely in the position to be the god of whatever he wants to be. The days of a Manson concert being a shocking or controversial experience are long gone and what is left is nothing more than a solid rock show for some incredibly talented musicians.


Marilyn Manson has a way of being about to ignite the audience and hold them in the palm of his hand. The audience was hanging on to his every word and he along with guitarist Tyler Bates (who also happens to be the producer of The Pale Emperor) and bassist Twiggy Ramirez delivered an absolutely epic performance. His banter with the crowd was full of snark and dead-pan wit and I absolutely adore Manson’s ability to turn both a lyric and phrase on a dime.

Our one piece of advice to anyone heading out to any of the remaining dates on this tour, is to please take a moment, put your iPhone down and just spend some time soaking in the music and actually engrossing yourself in the show … trust me … it’s worth it!

Menage Is Glorious Music To Our Ears


(PCM) As over-saturated as the music industry can be these days every great once an awhile a band will come along and make you stop in your tracks and go ‘damn … this band is really great’. That is pretty much the feeling I had when checking out the self-titled EP from Toronto-based band Ménage.

The group made up of siblings,Basilio, Gabriel and Bela Ferreira, who parents emigrated to Canada from Portugal are certainly beginning to generate a lot of buzz. Their sound is a glorious mixture of both Portuguese and North American influences and that particular blending has given Ménage a very unique musical perspective that is very much all their own.

Their songs have the ability to appeal to the masses, in fact their song “Our Time Is Now” was took home the accolade for Rock Song of the Year at the International Portuguese Music Awards. Listening to Ménage’s EP, as well as, their new track “Black And White TV” which features Portishead bassist Jim Barr I was thrilled with the audaciousness and overall freshness that Ménage brings to the current music scene. They are truly going to be a band to keep on your radar this year.

There are touches of various musical genres found within the band’s songs as I was able to sense everything from R n’ B to classic rock. With tracks such as “Our Time Is Now”, which has radio-hit written all over it, Ménage showcase their more hard-rocking side while tracks such as “Promises” and  “Love Song” definitely focus on their more softer and introspective side.

I can’t get enough of Ménage’s EP and certainly can’t wait to see what this band has in store for us next!
