LIVE RECORDING – The Matt Comeau Band @ Grimross

Greetings to the followers and friends of the Underground Alliance! Not too long ago, our Recording Tech, Jake Duffie, got the chance to record The Matt Comeau Band at Grimross Brewing. The night of familiar faces, drinking, and atmosphere had been brought to us by the good people at Roots & Soul Promotions. We could spend paragraphs trying to capture the feel of that performance, but luckily, we don’t have to! Listen in for free HERE, or at the bottom of this post for a few of the band’s original tunes.

Later that night, Jont & The Infinite Possibility played a set that is tough to put the right words to. Something magical between the theatrical performances of David Bowie or Prince, and the intimate, humble feel of your local indie band, but bigger. I can only hope we will be uploading parts of that set someday soon, but until then, do yourself the favor of checking out their music!

Jake Cormier hits the UGA Recording Studio

We here are the Underground Alliance Recording Studio had a fantastic time working Jake Cormier’s first session with us. A regular partner in crime to Richie Young, Cormier is well adapt to a similar style of the blues, with a little more traditional rock n’ roll fuelling his fire.
Throughout the evening of Jake’s session, we completed a original single, and wrapped up with a video performance of another of his tunes. Richie even stopped in to lay down a saucy harmonica track. The first thing that really stood out to me when working with Jake, was his voice. He may be a little soft spoken to talk to in person, but it was a whole other level when he opened up in front of the mic. Smooth, deep, powerful, and on pitch. Some of the most impressive vocals before hitting an FX chain that I’ve had the pleasure to work with.

Folk & Blues Night @ CSAC, Show Review from Underground Al

Hello music maniacs! it’s your pal Al here. The scene was serene as sound waves corroded my spleen. I’m still wiping off my trench coat after my face was melted and my ears caressed on the cusp of Charlotte Street’s finest venue. Richie Young snatched the stage and brought exactly what we expected. A Hoochie Coochie Man in his own right, A Howlin’ Wolf in his own despair and a Smokin’, Tokin’ , Jokin’ titan of a little thing we call The Blues.

I had the pleasure of seeing Young down in the depths of our quaint river city about a year ago doing his thing and doing it well. Guitar case open, harp around his neck and nothing but the day to burn away. His style alone is enough to turn heads but his sound will completely spin that sucker right off your shoulders. As he tapped his toe to his rendition of Little Walter’s “My Babe”, I thought the sidewalk was going to crack and the concrete pieces were going to start dancing as sensually as the hairs on Richie’s lip.
