The Cornerstones - Stand In Line... an aligned yet eclectic compositional cornerstone of vibrant sound and heavy resonance

Good music is worth the wait. The Cornerstones has been one of the first bands who ever reached out to me on twitter (the blessed land of vast music aptitude and extensive indulgence) and their songs made a lasting impression on me. With vibrant, tense and incisive melodies, with subtle, brisk and ardent vocals of raucous resonance, moreover with a promising debut album already released back in the day, the london based rock foursome left me eager for more. Their second album was in the making, they said, and so the wait began. I was lured in, held on patiently, knowing that the days, the months that passed, time spent by the band with composing, rehearsing and recording, would eventually pay off for the eager audience, would eventually be endorsed by me. As good music is worth the wait, music also takes time come into being, to evolve, to be elaborated to both the musicians' and the listeners' approval and satifaction.

Interview with the one of a kind acoustic rock band Joe Symes and the Loving Kind (.. or: the story of how I made my first interview experiences)

DrBones' music show (canadian music podcasts via

I still can recall my first interview 'experience'. All too well in fact. The tingling excitement, the pleasant anticipation, the touch of nervousness of which I now - as almost one year has passed since then - like to believe vanished once I started to ask the questions I prepared. But I can tell, it hasn't, my voice, slightly trembling, told so, I knew, probably the band knew too and all the listeners did certaintly notice it as well.
