Joseph Keith, “Yesterday’s Gone” EP

Joseph Keith, “Yesterday’s Gone” EP

Washington D.C. native Joseph Keith may only be 19, but he’s already recorded albums with 2 bands and recently signed a management deal with Barry McCloud Management out of Nashville.

The Life Exceptional  is the latest release from 4 piece band Craving Strange based out of NY, and was released in 2012.

Radio-friendly songs that stay with you long after the first listen....

ThreeStateFamous, Suburban Street Trash

ThreeStateFamous, Suburban Street Trash

The new album from Three State Famous, Suburban Street Trash, is a non-stop tour of all-out rock’n’roll.

With a...
