The Upset Victory: Wall Street

My introduction to The Upset Victory came when I saw them perform at Covington's Madison Theatre as part of this year's CEA event.  Shortly after, I received a copy of the EP Wall Street from the band.  My first impression was that this may be the best-produced CD I have reviewed so far.

The band went to Starlight Studios in Orlando, FL to record Wall Street and worked with producer Brock BerryHill and engineer Evan Coffman. Together with BerryHill and Coffman, The Upset Victory have crafted a sound that is top-notch and completely ready for air-play.

The String Theory: Falling Like The Sun

Credit from thestringtheoryband.com Steve Ziegelmeyer (ziegelmeyerphotography.com)

This may say more about me than about the band, but the first time I listened to Falling Like The Sun by The String Theory, I was reminded of the time Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins [Foo Fighters] joined forces with Nick Raskulinecz to perform "Overture" from Rush's 2112 at The 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.  This was a nod of acknowledgment and honor for the former and a passing-of-the-torch moment for the latter.
