Goodbye June

“I’m Landon Milbourn. Lead vocalist, star extraordinaire.” “This is Tyler. Tyler Baker. The real star vocal. I play guitar.” “Brandon Qualkenbush. Guitar. I’m celebrating 04/20 in full effect right now.” And that is how our conversation began. Oh, Goodbye June, what are we going to do with you? Let’s put that question into proper (and G-rated) perspective: The Nashville trio […]

Taylor John Williams

Whether you are a Los Angeles native, a momentary visitor or an out of town transplant, Friday nights on Hollywood Blvd are a strange beast. It’s one of LA’s many boulevards but this one specializes in dreams (broken and fulfilled), kitschy novelty stores, Scientology centers, the best Captain Jack Sparrows money can buy, venues, heavy traffic and eateries with overly […]

Ernie Hudson (APB)

We had a chance to talk to legendary actor Ernie Hudson about his journey through Hollywood, the many projects he’s working on and upcoming finale of his FOX show, APB.

Into The Light With Missio

On an early evening in March, David Butler and Matthew Brue were prepping for a private, intimate show in the Fairfax Village area of Los Angeles.

Emarosa: The Year Of 131

It was November 15, 2016 and while we were upstairs in the green room of The Echo in Los Angeles, below us the room had quickly filled up with anticipating bodies. Amongst us there was talk of electoral colleges, the fanciful idea of California, Oregon and Washington annexing with Canada as well as incorporating fire dancers, carnivals, orchestras and a […]

In Her Words: Lauren Ruth Ward

There’s something about the spritely Baltimore being formally known as Lauren Ruth Ward. Something. Ethereal yet earthy. Agitated but grounded. Internally vulnerable yet fierce. Talk to her: her words bounce in multiple directions, yet are thoughtful coupled with the art of looking you directly in the eye. It’s almost unsettling, so much direct indirect contact, but there seems to be […]
