Worth the Wait Living Up to Their Name

Taking a Break to Make it Even Better

I like it when bands make good choices.  Worth the Wait, in my opinion, is doing just that.  According to a post at their Facebook page, they are going take a bit of a break.  Unlike many bands who do so due to conflict within, they are doing so for all the right reasons.  This band is taking a break for all the right reasons.  They are focusing on making their “come back” to mean a better band.

Barry McCabe is one talented musician.  He blends blues, rock and a dash of Celtic to create tunes that are both eclectic and uniquely his style.  Having exchanged emails with him over the years I feel he is a musician who genuinely enjoys connecting with his fans.  This is very evident if you check out the energy he pumps out during live performances.

Cameo Cleveland: Corrisa Bragg


An Interview with Corrisa Bragg

Recently, I got a chance to interview my friend Corissa Bragg a local singer/songwriter and actress. We chatted a bit about acting, music, her upcoming journey to India, and her last hurrah here in Cleveland before the big trip.

Bragg recently stared in “My City” a short that follows a young musician on a course of self discovery as she decides what to do with her future. The film was written and directed by local filmmaker Kyle Retter and was shot in partnership with Shoot It Already Films this summer. It will be premiering at Arts in Collinwood December 28, 2011, at 7 o’clock and admission is free.  Come early for some great food, drink, and a chance to hang out with the cast and crew, doors open at 6.

The Press Live at The Roc Bar in Cleveland

Lumpy and Boz met these fine musicians when they played with The Hush Now.  The Hush Now came to Cleveland back in October and played The Roc Bar.  The Press was the act that played before them.

We had never heard this Cleveland band before and were so impressed by them that we decided to approach them and get them on Indie Nation. The tracks you are going to hear were recorded at that live show.
