Seven Thunders

Rob Carlton’s Seven Thunders CD is now available. Missy Weidenhof at Pennsylvania Music wrote this excellent review of Rob’s CD, “Hailing from East Stroudsburg PA, Rob Carlton is a guitar playing machine! His third release, Seven Thunders is an instrumental rock and roll experience, delivering hard-hitting numbers, scaled down ballads and a nice fluent blend of bent strings to fill the gaps. No vocals, no bass, no filler. Just straight up instrumental rock riffs that are solid enough on their own, nothing else is needed and nothing is missing. Album opener and title track “Seven Thunders” titillates your senses instantly with the technical guitar interlude followed by the well-timed beats.

Rob is giving away 2 signed copies of ‘Seven Thunders’ to 2 Skopers:

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
