2. The Bridge City Sinners - Doubt
3. Grandpa's Cough Medicine - Julianne
4. Yes Ma'am - Shoulda' Lean
5. The Devil Makes Three - Black Irish

"May's playlist is loaded with a folky sound after one of my favorite artists, The Bridge City Sinners, released two new singles and it reanimated my love for the dark and gritty sound they are known for; Break The Chain and Doubt, both showcase a haunting and intense vocal style that I’ve really come to enjoy. The next few songs on my set list - Grandpa's Cough Medicine's Julianne, Yes Ma'am's Shoulda' Lean, and The Devil Makes Three's Black Irish, - bring their own unique edge to the folky mix that I find myself easily returning to when the mood strikes!"

Tim Schaffer (Audio/Video Producer)

Currently Listening To:
1. BABY METAL & Electric Callboy - RATATATA
2. As I Lay Dying - Burden
3. The Mars Volta - Graveyard Love
4. The War on Drugs - Under the Pressure
5. Dalton Wright - Midnight

"Starting hard with a weirdly unexpected incredible mash-up between two artist perfectly made for each other! Then staying with strong energy with the latest As I Lay Dying’s latest track. Next 3 tracks are time to get all in your feelings with legends pulled from At the Drive In imported into personally a more interesting band for me with The Mars Volta. Next up is for any fan of Bob Dylan or Tom Petty with just the right touches of modern music that still wear there inspirations on the sleeves with The War on Drugs. And last is another pretty song from local star Dalton Wright pulled from his latest album Thought Patterns that recently dropped!"

Richard NaVarre (Man About Town)

1. Jason Aldean - Johnny Cash
2. John Mellencamp - Pink Houses
3. ZZ Top - Fool for your stockings
4. Styx - Too Much Time On My Hands
5. Stealin - Uriah Heep

"Straight from the new RELENTLESS Playlist! Some old, some new...a mix of many artists I'm listening to and learning from. I'm really liking Jason Aldean...he has a great mix of his brand of country. Sounds bluesy rock to me! Enjoy!"
