The Truth About Lies. Vocalist Blake Westbrook and guitar/harmonica/piano player Tyler Mundy don’t seem to aspire to greatness, instead proclaiming via their MySpace bio that they are “just some band from Asheville who enjoys playing music.” You can get the basic idea of their sound from the song “Dear Father.”
Shawn Gallaway has a mission with his music. It’s all about “empowering people to take caring, positive action in their lives and in the world right now … through both his music and art.” His music appears to carry these themes, bearing titles such as “Go Gratitude,” “New Energy Movement” and “I Choose Love” (which we suggest as a starting point on your Gallaway experience). He also bears a striking resemblance to a Night Rider-era David Hasselhoff.
Lastly, we’ve recently found the official
Dominoes page on MySpace. You may wonder why a local rap artist with less than 500 friends would need to make the distinction — perhaps there are hordes of potential impersonators out there — but at least he’s making things clear from the start. There’s not much in the way of background on Dominoes (who, despite the plural of the name, seems to be an individual), but we do know him to be a “young gutta a** n***a straight from da SOUTH!!!!!!” We suggest starting with the
133t-enabled “5ouf 5id3 5ouljah.”
