ReverbNation Featured Artists of the Month- May

| May 1, 2014 | 0 Comments

ReverbNation Featured Artists of the Month give five independent acts that have not previously been featured in Colorado Music Buzz the opportunity to get on our radar, get their bio in the magazine, and get their tracks played on Music Buzz LIVE Radio on Wednesday evenings. The artists are selected through submissions made via their ReverbNation pages.


Honey Don’t

honeydontHoney Don’t is the musical union of Bill Powers and Shelley Gray, perhaps better known as one half of the Paonia, Colorado based old time-bluegrass band, Sweet Sunny South.
Their music is acoustic and based in the folk tradition. They draw from their bluegrass and old-time background but also inject some country, blues and a little swing. The songs are catchy and engaging, funny, sad, lonesome and uplifting. Most of the songs are original, but select covers and traditional tunes are part of their repertoire as well.

Hurricane VIC

hurricanevicI was born in Indiana, where at an early age we moved down to my mother’s side of the family in Alabama. We lived the country life there before making our way out west to reside here in Colorado. I have always been addicted to hip hop / Rap from early an early age. I couldn’t get enough of the old school artists who paved way and fueled the passion I had for my own music. I remember early on It was all Licensed to the Beastie boys. As times changed in society and the more raw styles surfaced, it was then in the 90s that I felt a drive and need to do my own style of music. I started rhyming, writing, and battling in the music scene in 1994. I started out in a live band called 420BC Brew Crew, we had no idea what talent we had back then due to our young age. Now after many years of being in the business I have decided to go solo as the Hurricane Vic. Noticing the hard work, devotion and drive it takes to make it in this business, I put forth my all every day to become one day successful . All my music is written by myself and all material is from my own life experiences. Maybe not all of what I write is radio play status due to the graphic nature but it’s real.

Decadon

decadonEver since he could remember, Donnie Miller has had a deep love for music. He was introduced to this love at a very early age. As a toddler, there constantly was music playing in the house. As he grew into an elementary school student, he took music classes and computer classes where he was first introduced to the music program Garage Band. He did not have the program at home, so he would stay hours after school was over in the computer laboratory, just learning the simple functions of how it worked. By age 12 he had picked up the guitar, bass, and piano. He would put on concerts for his friends and family at his house. This is when he realized that he could do something in his life with his love for music. By age 17, Donnie had already released on two very reputable record labels. Every one of his releases made Top 100 charts on Beatport, and some even broke the Top 10.  Now, Miller is 18 years old and is already living his dream. He is sharing the stage and talking with artists that have inspired him to write music. Some of which including Borgeous, Bare, Brillz, Borgore, Imagine Dragons, Getter, Ookay, Mayhem, and more. Sharing the stage with some of his icons and making incredible connections, Donnie is taking the Colorado Bass Music scene by storm. Decadon’s productions are both cutting edge and infectious with his usage of rock and roll influence and heavy bass, quickly gathering fame on the west coast circuit. His live guitar incorperation in his live show is also something that needs to be seen to believe. It is an amazing blend of multiple genres of music, that is something very little people can pull off with such success. He also has support from such music blogs as Dubstep.net, Techibeats.com, TheKollection.com, and many others. With his music and live performances already touching thousands of people, this up and coming Colorado – based musician is only getting started, and is making a name for himself in the global dance music community.
