Loyalty to the End: NeverShoutNever Travels Through Time



OurStage artist NeverShoutNever has gone through some changes lately. Starting as the sole musical conduit for Christofer Drew, NeverShoutNever took its first steps towards stardom by rising through the ranks of MySpace. The band then set off on tours with the likes of Hellogoodbye and channeled their growing Internet stardom into a major label contract. As much as NeverShoutNever seems like a dream-like DIY Cinderella story, when considering the band’s origins as a creative output for one individual, it makes the logistics behind the recently released third album Time Travel even more remarkable. Not only does the band play with new sounds, the album also marks the first project the group created together as a cohesive unit. And they weren’t alone in helping to make it happen. In the process of crafting the album, the band stopped by the up-and-coming Burbank-based production company Loyal Studios to record the music video for “Time Travel”. Check out the video and some exclusive behind-the-scenes pictures below. Also, feel free stop by Loyal Studios’ blog entry on the shooting to get an inside scoop on the process of shooting the video and insight in the growth of NeverShoutNever.

iRock: Orange Avenue

There was a time when the rock genre adopted synthesized instruments, such as the infamous Moog synthesizer, and birthed a new genre child. Like all kids, the genre grows up  and begins to hang out with many different people thus creating new sounds for everyone to enjoy and love. Bands like Motion City Soundtrack, Ludo, The Get Up Kids, Reggie And The Full Effect, Thunderbirds Are Now! and HelloGoodbye crawled out of the woodwork, utilizing the synth sound in their own unique way. Today, solid synthesized rock genre is all grown up and making a comeback with a fresher look and new attitude after many years of tweaking.

Poptarts: Covers Playlist

Here on OurStage we often encourage our artists to upload their own original material. For boring, yet necessary, copyright reasons we can’t allow cover songs in many of our channels. So it’s just about time that we give the covers some love. After perusing the Cover Bands Channel I found that it was full of great pop hits! Who knew?

Some of the best covers are those songs that have been completely rearranged to reflect an artists own particular style and sound. One such artists dominating the Cover Bands charts is Heidi Jutras. Her arrangements of “Toxic” by Britney Spears and “Sweet Dreams” by Beyoncé have turned over-produced Top 40 pop hits into orchestral works of art. She puts a completely different beat over reworked harmonies and melodies to make her renditions something completely new.

Vassya, another popular OurStage cover artist, took a completely different approach. His cover of “Bohemian Rhapsody” is spot on. As most people can guess, this is no an easy feat. Check out the playlist below for more of our favorite OurStage covers including “Decode” by Paramore, “Sex On Fire” by Kings of Leon, Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” and Hellogoodbye’s “Here In Your Arms”! Do you have any favorite covers on OurStage? Let us know in the comments!

Poptarts: The Sunstreak

As a band trying to break into the business, it’s important to find your niche. This is especially true in pop music. With a constant flow of new bands coming out of the woodwork, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle. Finding your niche is a great way to develop a solid foundation of a few true fans, rather than an unstable base of tons of fair-weather fans. The Sunstreak is one of those bands that has truly found their place in the Pop music market and have seen great success because of it.
